CONNECTIONS
Connecting the video output to your TV
In order to use the DVD Recorder, you’ll need to make a video connection to your TV. The capabilities of your TV and the cables
you have on hand will determine the connections you can use. There are 3 possible connection types:
- Composite Video - The most widely used connection. This unit includes an A/V cable for Composite Video.
- S-Video - A higher quality connection that requires a special S-Video cable and an S-Video capable TV.
- Component Video - The highest quality video connection. Supported on high-end TVs and requires a special cable.
Composite Video (Typical connection)
This unit ships with a composite video (A/V) cable for connection to TVs with a standard video input as shown below. This is the
most widely used type of connection. On most TVs, this connector is colored yellow, and is normally accompanied by stereo
audio inputs, colored red and white for stereo channels right and left, respectively.
14
CONNECTIONS
S-Video
This is a higher quality connection than standard composite video, and requires a special S-Video cable not included. The
S-Video connector is distinguishable by its 4 pins, as shown below. If your TV has an S-Video input, it’s recommended that you
use this type of connection for better picture quality.
capability
Component Video
The highest quality video connection, component video requires separate cables for the Y, Pb, Pr signals. To use the progressive
scan option on this unit, you’ll need to use the component video output. Using the component video output requires these steps:
1
First, use the supplied A/V cable to connect to the
composite video input on your TV. Select this input.
2
Change the TV TYPE to YUV by press the VIDEO/Y key
on the remote control.

RECORDING
Introduction to Recording
You already know that DVD discs provide the highest quality
video playback available. Now, with DVD+R/RW recording,
you can create your own DVDs from your home movies,
favorite TV shows or virtually any other video source.
Recording to DVD+R/RW is easy. The process is similar in
many ways to your old VCR, but with many new
enhancements. You can record live by simply pressing one
button, or set the timer for scheduled recordings. And
DVD+RW discs can be erased and used over and over again more than one thousand times and still look crystal clear. Try that
with VHS tapes!
There's lots of new editing features with DVD+R/RW that
give your recordings a flexibility that you never had with VHS.
The Title Screen gives you quick access to your recordings
with thumbnail images you can change. You can quickly add or
delete Titles or Chapters.
Discs you can Record To
This unit will accept two disc types for Recording:
DVD+RW and DVD+R.
Although DVD+RW discs are more expensive than DVD+Rs,
they can actually be more economical and convenient for
certain situations. For example, if you are recording TV
programs you may want to "recycle" discs - recording over
episodes you have already watched. In this situation, DVD+RW
discs are the best choice because a single disc can be used over
and over again - there's fewer discs to buy and keep track of.
Think of DVD+RW (DVD+ReWritable) discs as the digital
equivalent of your old VHS tapes. Like video tape, DVD+RW
discs can be recorded to, erased and re-used. But unlike video
tape, DVD+RW discs will retain their crystal-clear digital
quality even after being erased and re-recorded over 1000
times! This superior quality will not degrade with the
passage of time like VHS tapes.
Also, unlike DVD+R discs, DVD+RW discs do not require a
"Finalization" process for compatibility with standard DVD
Recorders. To understand why this is so, consider the following:
In order for your recordings to be compatible with standard
DVD Recorders, a TOC (Table of Contents) must be written to
each disc. Since DVD+RW discs are ReWritable, the TOC can
be constantly updated as new recordings are made. This means
that a DVD+RW disc can be played on a standard DVD Recorder
directly after the first recording, and will remain compatible as
new material is added later.
What you can Record From
DVD+R discs are "Recordable" discs that
cannot be erased. Once a recording is made to a DVD+R disc,
the disc space used by that recording can not be reclaimed,
although the recording itself can be "hidden" so it is not
viewable when the disc is played.
DVD+R discs must be Finalized before they can be played
back on standard DVD Recorders. Once this process is
complete, no more recordings can be added. This is an
important difference between DVD+R and DVD+RW Discs.
While the TOC (Table of Contents) can be written to and
updated many times on a DVD+RW disc, the TOC on a
DVD+R disc can only be written once. Therefore, you cannot
move a DVD+R between the Recorder and a DVD Recorder as
you add recordings to the disc. Instead, you must complete the
disc before it is playable on a standard DVD Recorder.
Although DVD+R offers less recording flexibility than
DVD+RW, the lower cost per disc and the fact that the material
cannot be erased or edited make it the best choice for large
distributions of recordings to friends or clients.
You can record your own DVDs from the following sources:
TV Tuner - This unit features a built-in TV Tuner that can be
connected to a Cable TV hookup or standard Antenna to record
your favorite TV shows. You can auto-scan for available
channels and add or delete channels from the channel list.
AV Inputs (Composite/S-Video) - Use the Audio/Video Inputs
to record from consumer electronics devices such as your
Camcorder and VCR. You can also connect external TV
Tuners, DVD Recorders, etc. to the A/V inputs - basically any
video device that has a S-Video or Composite Video Output.
About Copy Protection
You cannot record from a video source that is encoded with
Macrovision copy-protection, such as most DVDs produced
by major studios. As an example, if you have a DVD Recorder
connected to an AV input and attempt to record a DVD, an
error message will occur, letting you know that the disc is
copy-protected. DVDs not encoded with Macrovision can be
used as a recording source.
26
RECORDING
Setting Recording Options
There are several recording options and other settings that
should be understood and checked before you begin recording.
Setting the Record Quality
The Record quality determines the quality of your recordings as
well as the maximum amount of video you can record on a
disc. The higher the quality, the less video recording time can
be recorded.
Setting the Auto Chapter Option
You can set the recorder to automatically add a "chapter
marker" every 10 minutes during your recordings. During
playback, this will allow you to skip forward or back in 10
minute intervals by using the NEXT/PREV keys on the
remote. These chapter markers are compatible with most
standard DVD Recorders as well.
You can also add chapter markers manually.

until the disc is FINALIZED. Until a DVD+R disc is finalized, it
can be recorded to, played back and edited on the DVD

EDITING YOUR RECORDINGS
2
Editing Overview
Your DVD Recorder’s capabilities go far beyond simply
recording in Live and Timer modes. A vast array of editing
options are also available, allowing you to tailor your
recordings to your own personal requirements.
Press EDIT to access the EDIT MENU.
PLAY TITLE
You can divide your recordings into sections, or Chapters, that
provide the user-friendly navigation made popular on motion
picture DVDs. Entire titles can be erased, although the
space cannot be reclaimed with DVD+R discs.
DELETE TITLE
RENAME TITLE
CANCEL
Lastly, to make your discs compatible for distribution to clients
or friends, use the Make Compatible and Finalize options for
DVD+RW and DVD+R discs, respectively. These functions
assure that all your edits will be “locked in” and your discs will
playback just as you wish - on most DVD Recorders
3
To perform any of the above functions in the EDIT
MENU, use the UP/DOWN ARROW keys to select a
function and press ENTER to confirm.
EDIT MENU Functions - Title
Use the EDIT MENU to access available editing functions. The
EDIT MENU can be accessed in the Title Screen, or during
playback of a DVD+R/RW disc. The available editing functions
will change depending on the type of disc and where the menu is
accessed.
DELETE TITLE
Delete the selected Title. The functionality of this option is
different with DVD+R & DVD+RW discs. With DVD+RW
discs, the title is erased and the disc space freed for use for
subsequent recordings. However, when a title is erased on a
DVD+R disc, the disc space cannot be reclaimed – the title is
essentially “hidden” and the disc space is still used up.
Access the EDIT MENU from the Title Screen for top level
editing functions. These functions deal with the compatibility
and playback of an entire disc, rather than with individual titles,
which are edited during playback.
Play Title
1
You can play titles for your recordings.
First bring up the Title Screen by pressing TITLE when
the Recorder is in DVD mode.

S-VIDEO: A higher quality picture than standard COMPOSITE
VIDEO S-VIDEO requires a special cable (not included).
Composite Video is supported on majority of televisions. It is
identified by a yellow-colored photo-type jack.
YUV: This setting is used for TVs supporting component video
out and progressive scan. To activate the component video
outputs, you must first connect the unit using the COMPOSITE
VIDEO connector and cable in order to enter SETUP and change
this setting. Next, connect the unit using the COMPONENT
VIDEO cables and unplug the COMPOSITE video cable. Adjust
the TV’s Video Input setting to correspond to the COMPONENT
Input. Most TVs scan only half the lines of an image in one pass.
This scanning method is known as “interlaced” mode, as the odd
and even lines are interlaced together in alternate scans, and is the
default setting with the NTSC and PAL options. Progressive
scan, set with the PROGRESSIVE option, is a scanning
method offered on high-end TVs. Progressive Scan TV’s scan all
the lines of an image in one pass, creating a more film-like
quality to DVD movies. Note: All progressive scan TV’s requires
component video inputs.

Default setting: NTSC
Your DVD Recorder will work with TVs based on the NTSC and
PAL standards, as well as TVs designed to function with both
standards, or “Multi System” models. NTSC is the standard TV
system used in the USA, Canada, Japan and many other
countries. The PAL TV system is used in Europe, Africa and the
Middle East, among other places. Refer to your TV’s
documentation to make sure which model you have.

TV DISPLAY
Default setting: NORMAL/PS(4:3)
You can setup your DVD Recorder to work with normal and wide
screen televisions. If you are using a wide screen TV, set this option to
16:9 WIDE TV to match the aspect ratio of your TV. When used with
a normal TV (4:3 aspect ratio), the 4:3 NORMAL/PS setting results
in the typical “Pan & Scan” display, where a movie is clipped on the
sides to fit into the TV screen. The 4:3 NORMAL/LB LETTERBOX
setting will enable the “Letterbox” format, where the movie is
presented in wide screen format with black lines at the top and bottom
of the screen. The 4:3 NORMAL/PS and NORMAL/LB settings
usually will have no effect, since very few movies support both
options. DVDs are generally recorded with either PS or LB and do not
allow switching between the two. So, viewing a wide screen DVD on
a standard TV will result in black bars on the top and bottom of the
screen.

Resetting the video output
If you inadvertently switch the OUTPUT FORMAT setting to
PROGRESSIVE while using a standard TV not capable of
PSCAN, you will loose video. If this happens, press PSCAN
to reset the recorder to its default video settings .
