Features
1
A new timer recording system:
“Easy Recording Guide”
• This feature makes timer recording easier. A
schedule grid of times and channels is displayed on
the screen, and by simply designating cells in the
grid with the remote control, timer programming
becomes as easy as circling your favorite shows in
the newspaper. You can also see at a glance which
time slots are already programmed, and avoid any
overlap.
2
DVD-RW/R recording/playback
with outstanding compatibility
• This Recorder is compatible with digital recording
on rewritable DVD-RW discs and one-time recordable DVD-R discs. It has two recording formats: “VR
(Video Recording) mode” which has a wealth of
editing functions, and “Video mode” which can be
played back with existing DVD players. This lets you
enjoy recording to suit your purpose.
3
High picture quality design
1Progressive scanning playback
High-quality, high-density video with no jagged
contours and no flicker.
2VBR (Variable Bit Rate) recording
Constantly maintains optimal high picture quality by
varying the bit rate (amount of video data) for each
scene depending on the video content (e.g. whether
movement is fast or slow).
4
Comprehensive editing functions
(Only titles recorded in VR mode on DVD-RW
can be edited.)
1Play list edit
This lets you gather only the needed parts (i.e. a “Play
List”) from a recorded original video (title). You can
rearrange scenes and combine them with other
scenes, or rearrange titles.
2Chapter edit
This lets you divide a title into chapter units during
recording/playback or using the edit screen. After
dividing, a list of recordings (thumbnails) can be
displayed in chapter units, so you can copy and
erase to the play list in chapter units.
3Erase scene
This lets you erase unnecessary scenes. This is
convenient when you want to cut out the commercials in a recorded program.
4Batch erasing of titles/chapters
Titles and chapters which become unnecessary
after editing can be batch erased by selecting them
from the list of recordings (thumbnails).
5Edit undo function*4
If you mistakenly erase data during editing, this
function lets you restore it to its immediately
preceding state, just like “Undo” on a PC, so you
can edit worry-free.
*4 Edit undo can only be used once. It only works when
“UNDO” is assigned to a colored button (green) displayed
on the screen.
6
5
Simple operation and user-friendly
design using a new remote control
1START MENU
Press START MENU button on the remote control,
and display the list of main functions on the screen.
After that, you can operate by using the Cursor
buttons and SET/ENTER button on the remote
control, so this Recorder can be used easily even
by a person who is unfamiliar with operation.
2Colored buttons
The remote control has colored buttons with four
different colors. Functions are displayed in four
different colors on the screen, and the Recorder
can be operated by directly designating these
functions.
3Luminous buttons
Luminous buttons are used for key control buttons
on the remote control so they are easy to see in the
dark.
6
MP3 file playback
• This Recorder allows you to playback MP3 files
recorded on CD-RW/R.
7
VCR Plus+*5 System
• The VCR Plus+ System allows you to program your
Recorder for timer recording simply by inputting the
PlusCode Programming number. The PlusCode
numbers are listed in most newspapers, television
guides, and local CATV listings. Simply by inputting
this PlusCode number, you can program your
Recorder for timer recording, eliminating the need
to input program start time, stop time, channel, date
and other information which is necessary for
ordinary timer programming.
*5 VCR Plus+ and PlusCode are registered trademarks of
Gemstar Development Corporation. The VCR Plus+
system is manufactured under license from Gemstar
Development Corporation.

inside the cabinet, please contact the nearest Sharp
Authorized Service Center.
Do not cover the fan or ventilation holes on the back of the Recorder.
• When setting up the Recorder, do not cover the fan or
ventilation holes on the rear of the Recorder. This will
interfere with the cooling fan and cause malfunction. Be
especially careful of this point when housing the Recorder
in a TV stand or AV rack.
• Do not use the Recorder on carpets, or on a bed or sofa,
or wrap the Recorder in cloth or other material. This will
interfere with the cooling fan and cause malfunction.
Avoid dust and smoke.
• Do not place the Recorder at a location which is unstable,
subject to heavy vibration or where there is a lot of dust or
tobacco smoke. Doing so may cause malfunction or
accidents.

When using the Recorder during
rain or snow
• If you use the Recorder during rain or snow, be careful
not to allow it to get wet.
Dew formation
• Dew may form on the surface of and inside the Recorder
if you suddenly carry it from a cold location to a warm
location, or use it in a cold room where heating has just
been turned on (i.e. on a winter morning). If dew forms,
take out the disc and leave the Recorder with the power
off until the dew disappears. Using the Recorder with dew
formation may cause malfunction. (See page 16.)
Precautions about Using This Product
Notes about use
• The cabinet surface employs a lot of plastic. Do not wipe
these surfaces with benzene or thinner because this may
cause deterioration or paint peeling.
• The Recorder and cabinet may become a little hot,
depending on the use environment when using this
Recorder. This is not a malfunction.
• When unplugging the power cord (to move the Recorder,
etc.), first turn off power (STANDBY indicator on the front
of the Recorder lights up red).
• When power is turned on, the fan will rotate to cool the
Recorder.
• Immediately after plugging the power cord into an AC
outlet, or after recovery from a power failure, the unit may
fail to operate for more than ten seconds because the
Recorder is performing system adjustment.
benzene
Upkeep of cabinet
OIL
thinner
• Do not apply volatile liquids like insecticide to the
cabinet. Also, do not allow long-term contact with
materials like rubber, vinyl products or synthetic leather.
Doing so may cause problems like paint peeling.
• Do not affix stickers or tape to the Recorder. Doing so
may cause cabinet discoloration or damage.
• If the cabinet or front panel display gets dirty, gently wipe
it off with soft cloth like flannel. If it is extremely dirty, soak
a cloth in neutral detergent diluted with water, wring the
cloth well, wipe, and then wipe again with a dry cloth.
Using powerful cleaners may cause discoloration,
deterioration or paint peeling. We recommend testing any
cleaners at an inconspicuous location on the Recorder.
Notes about this operation
manual
• In this operation manual, the terms “the Recorder”, “this
Recorder” or “your Recorder” refer to the “DV-SR3U DVD
Recorder.
• The screen displays and Recorder illustrations given in
this operation manual are for explanatory purposes, and
may differ somewhat from the actual screen and Recorder.
Electromagnetic interference
• If you use a mobile phone or other electronic equipment
near the Recorder, video may be disturbed or become
noisy during playback or recording due to electromagnetic interference.
Antenna
• To avoid the effects of radio interference, set up the
antenna at a location away from busy roads, electric
wires for train, electric transmission lines and neon signs.
This is effective for preventing electric shock accidents in
the unlikely event that antenna falls down.
• Do not make the antenna line unnecessarily long, or
bundle it. Be careful because doing so will cause the
picture to be unstable.
• The antenna is exposed to the weather, so be careful to
periodically check and replace it. This will ensure a
beautiful picture. Antennas are particularly susceptible to
damage at locations with heavy smoke and soot, and
locations exposed to sea breeze.
Connected equipment
• Read carefully the “Precautions for Use” in the operation
manual for any equipment connected to the Recorder.
Power conservation
• When you are finished using the Recorder, conserve
power by turning power off. If you go on a trip, or
otherwise will not use the Recorder for a long time,
unplug the power cord from the AC outlet to ensure
safety.
If you do not use the Recorder for
a long time
• Failure to use the Recorder for a long time may cause
problems, so turn on power and operate the Recorder
from time to time.
Requests regarding setup
• Do not cover the fan or ventilation holes on the back of
the Recorder. Doing so will interfere with heat radiation
and cause malfunction.

About MP3 file format
MP3 files are audio data compressed in MPEG1 Audio
layer 3 file format. “MP3 files” have “.mp3” as extensions.
(Some files that have “.mp3” extensions or files that have
not been recorded in MP3 format will produce noise or
cannot be played.)
Æ Playing MP3 discs
• Some MP3 files are not played in the order they were
recorded.
• The maximum number of layers which can be
recognized, including files and folders, is 8.
• The multi-session discs cannot be played.
• It is recommended to record data at a lower speed as
data recorded at fast speed can produce noise and
may not be able to be played.
• The more folders there are, the longer the reading
time.
• Depending on the folder tree, reading MP3 files can
take time.
• Folder or track (file) names are limited to 8 characters.
Folder or track (file) names that go over 8 characters
will be abbreviated. (Certain letters or symbols in
folder names or title name may not be displayed.)
• The playing time may not be correctly displayed
during MP3 file playback.
Æ The following files cannot be played on this
Recorder.
• Discs that have more than 257 folders or 1,000 files.
• When both Audio CD format and MP3 files format are
recorded on a disc. (The disc is recognized to be an
Audio CD and only tracks in the Audio CD format are
played back.)
Types of Discs for Recording
• DVD-RW and DVD-R discs can be recorded with this
Recorder. The recording format that can be selected may
vary according to the disc version and type of disc.
• Make sure to use a disc that has the words “For Video” or
“For Recording” on the disc or disc jacket for recording
and playback with this Recorder.

DVD-RW Discs
• DVD-RW discs are available in Ver. 1.1, Ver. 1.1
(CPRM compatible) or Ver. 1.1/2g (CPRM
compatible).
• When a disc has been recorded in the VR mode, it
can be recorded and erased repeatedly. Erasure also
allows the recording time to be increased.
• When a disc has been recorded in the Video mode,
additional recording is possible until the disc is full.
The recording time does not increase*8 even if titles
are erased, but if the disc is initialized (see pages 14
and 84) full recording time is possible.
*8
Recording time can only be increased when the last
title is erased (titles cannot be erased after a disc
has been finalized).
DVD-R Discs
• DVD-R discs can only be recorded in the Video
mode.
• Although additional recordings can be made until the
disc is full, disc space does not increase even if titles
are erased (because erasure here refers only to
making the titles not visible).
• Although these discs can be played back with other
DVD players once they have been finalized, the discs
can no longer be recorded or erased after they have
been finalized.
• Discs can be additionally recorded and edited with
this Recorder only until they are finalized.

after it has been finalized.
• DVD-RW compatible DVD players have the following
indication.
DVD players with this indication have the function of
being able to play back DVD-RW discs recorded in
the VR mode with a DVD recorder.
When using a DVD-RW Ver. 1.1 disc (CPRM compatible).
Recorded programs cannot be played back with other
DVD players (including DVD-RW players) or DVD
recorders not compatible with CPRM.
Video Mode
This recording format is compatible with commercially
available DVD players and DVD-ROM drives.
• Discs recorded in the Video mode cannot be recorded
repeatedly or their content overwritten.
• When recording in the Video mode, discs can be played
back, additionally recorded and edited only with this
Recorder until they are finalized. Editing functions are
limited.
• Discs recorded in the Video mode can be played back
with other DVD players by finalizing them after recording.
(However, this does not guarantee that these discs can
be played back on all DVD players.)
• Recordings onto DVD-RW/R discs using the Video mode
employ a new standard approved by the DVD Forum in
2000, and compatibility with this standard is left to the
discretion of the respective DVD player manufacturer.
Consequently, there are some models of DVD players
and DVD-ROM drives that are unable to play back DVDRW/R discs.
• “Copy Once” programs cannot be recorded.
12
Recording Time
• The recording mode that can be set varies according to
the recording format. Refer to the table below for the
applicable recording mode.
Description
When you want to record highquality images.
This is the standard recording
mode.
When you want to record for a long
period of time with slightly lower
image quality.
When you want to place priority on
recording time.
• Recordable time is based on the recording time when
using a 4.7 GB disc. Since recording capacity varies
according to the recorded material, there may be cases
where there is much more disc space remaining on the
disc when recording is completed.
• Refer to page 36 about the recordable times when you
choose “MN” (manual) Recording mode.
* Since recording to DVD is performed using VBR (variable
bit rate, refer to the section on VBR Control on page 93)
with the exception of some recording modes, recording
time varies according to the material to be recorded.
• Recordable time may be shorter than that indicated above in
the case of recording material of poor image quality such as
broadcasts from televisions with poor reception.
• This does not guarantee the length of recording time. Actual
recording time may be shorter than that indicated above
depending on image quality and other aspects.
• The total of recording time and remaining time may not always
agree with the recordable time of the recording mode.
• Block-like images may become conspicuous during scenes
containing rapid movement due to the characteristics of digital
image compression technology.
Disc Remaining Time
Æ VR mode
• Additional recordings can be made as long as there is
available space on the disc. (Additional recordings
can also be made after the disc is finalized.)
• Erasing unnecessary recordings lets you increase the
remaining time on the disc. (The disc can also be
erased after it has been finalized.)
• When a Play List (see page 68) is created, disc space
will not increase even if portions of titles or titles of
Play List are erased.
Æ Video mode
• Additional recordings can be made with this Recorder
provided there is available space on the disc until the
disc is finalized.
• In case you record on a DVD-RW disc, recordable
time will increase if you erase the last recorded title
unless you finalize the DVD-RW disc.
• In case you record on a DVD-R disc, recordable time
will not increase even if you erase titles (see page 67).
(The erase function only hides the title, it does not
actually erase it. It does not actually delete the
recorded contents.)

Æ This Recorder is equipped with a copy guard
function that prevents recording of video software
or broadcast programs that contain a signal that
restricts copying in accordance with copyrights and
so forth.
Example:
• DVD videos
• PPV (pay-per-view) broadcasts
Æ The proper image may not be obtained in the case
a copy guard signal is contained in the images
input from equipment connected to the external
input jacks (LINE IN 1, LINE IN 2, LINE IN 3) of
this Recorder.
Example:
• Images not output at proper brightness
• Incorrect output of picture size and other data
Connect such equipment directly to your TV
without going through this Recorder.
Æ In the case a copy guard signal is contained in a
source video that occurs part way through recording, recording is paused at that point. Recording
resumes when the copy guard signal is no longer
present, while no recordings will be made for the
part where the copy prevention signal is present.
Time Display for Recording and
Playback (Video mode only)
• With this Recorder, the displayed record/playback time is
about 0.1% shorter than the actual recording time. In
video like TV broadcasts, video is sent at a rate of about
29.9 frames per second. For convenience, this Recorder
calculates using a value of 30 frames per second. (If, for
example, you record one hour, the time display on the
Recorder will be: 60 minutes K 0.999 ! 59.94 minutes
! 59 mins. 56 secs.)
13
Initialization and Finalization
Initialization (Formatting)
Initialization is required when using DVD-RW discs in the Video mode. (See page 84 for details about Initialization.)
When an unused DVD-RW disc is placed in the Recorder immediately after the disc has been purchased, the Recorder is set
to automatically begin initializing in the VR mode. The settings can also be changed so that discs are initialized in the Video
mode (page 84).
When using a DVD-RW disc in the Video mode without changing this setting, initialize the disc in the Video mode after first
completing initialization in the VR mode (page 84).
• Initialization causes the entire previously recorded contents of the disc to be erased.
• It takes about 1 minute to 1 minute and 30 seconds for initialization to be completed.
Allowing Discs to Be Played Back with Other DVD Players (Finalization)
Discs must always be finalized in order to play them back with another DVD player after having been recorded in
the Video mode. (See page 84 for details about Finalization)
Finalize discs on which all recordings have been completed so that they can be viewed with another DVD player or a DVD
Video compatible PC. Discs that are not finalized may not be able to be played back with other DVD players or DVD Video
compatible PCs. (However, this does not guarantee that finalized discs can be played back on all DVD players or DVD Video
compatible PCs.)
• Finalizing a DVD-R disc prevents all recording and editing of that disc.
• Although DVD-RW discs can be re-recorded by initializing even after they have been recorded in the Video mode and
finalized, all previously recorded contents are erased.
• Finalization is required if a disc recorded in the VR mode cannot be played back with a DVD-RW compatible player. (Discs
formatted in the VR mode can be recorded and edited even after finalization.)
• Finalization takes from several minutes to about an hour. (Processing takes longer if there is considerable available space
on the disc.)
The following operations may cause malfunction.
• Operating discs recorded or edited by this Recorder in a DVD recorder or PC’s DVD drive manufactured by other manufacturers.
• Using the discs in above situation again with this Recorder.
• Operating discs recorded or edited by a DVD recorder or PC’s DVD drive made by other manufacturers than the one for
this Recorder.
About the Contents of the Disc
Title, Chapter and Track
• DVDs are divided into “Titles” and “Chapters”. If the disc
Example 1: DVD
has more than one movie on it, each movie would be a
separate “Title”. “Chapters”, on the other hand, are
subdivisions of titles. (See Example 1.)
Title 2
• Video CDs and Audio CDs are divided into “Tracks”. You
Title 1
can think of a “Track” as one tune on an Audio CD. (See
Example 2.)
Chapter 1
Chapter 2
Chapter 3
Chapter 1
Chapter 2
Recording on a DVD-RW/R disc
• One recording is treated as one title and the chapters will
be inserted automatically every 10 minutes. You can
Example 2: Video CD or Audio CD
choose the chapter interval from the following: 10
minutes, 15 minutes, 30 minutes, or off (page 76).
• Each title, chapter and track will be numbered in order.
Track 1
Track 2
Track 3
Track 4
Track 5
Title, chapter and track may not be numbered in some
discs.
Recording on a DVD-RW disc in VR mode
• When you pause during recording or erase the scene using edit function, chapter marks will be inserted automatically. You
can also insert chapter marks at your favorite scenes (page 65).
Recording in Video mode
• You cannot insert chapter marks at your favorite scenes.

OSD LANGUAGE Select screen will not appear after EZ
Set Up.
About the Power Supply
• Do not unplug the power cord immediately after you
plug it into the AC outlet (less than about 15 seconds

be performed automatically.

Digital Gamma
• If a video is dark and hard to see, you can brighten the
dark parts for easier viewing by setting Digital Gamma.
Set this when watching discs with many dark scenes
(i.e. movie and concert discs), and when viewing a
disc in a bright room. This lets you see dark parts
better and enjoy video with a greater sense of depth.
• Press ' / " to select “ON” or “OFF”, then press \ / |
to set the level. Then press SET/ENTER.
• Digital Gamma can be set to three different levels.
Dolby Virtual Surround
• Lets you enjoy surround audio via analog connection
with a stereo type (2ch) TV or audio equipment.
• Even if you use a digital connection, Dolby Virtual
Surround will work in the following cases.
– When playing back linear PCM audio from a DVD.
– When playing back Dolby Digital audio.
– When “DIGITAL AUDIO OUTPUT” (page 80) is set to
“PCM”.

decrease, making it hard to hear. If this happens, turn
Dolby Virtual Surround OFF.

• If you set Dolby Virtual Surround to “ON” and audio
sounds abnormal during playback, set it to “OFF”.
• There are no level settings.
NOTE
• These functions cannot be used with all discs.

Editing
About Editing
Editing Procedure
Content that can be edited and editing operations vary
according to the recording mode.
Recordings on DVD-RW in VR mode
You can do various types of editing with this Recorder alone.
For example it is possible to create a compilation of your
favorite videos by gathering your favorite scenes from
recorded titles, moving scenes within a specified range, or
erasing unnecessary scenes. You can edit original videos
you have recorded into a Play List without changing the
content of the original videos.
NOTE
• If disc protection is set for a DVD-RW, it cannot be edited.
• If title protection is set, the only editing which can be done
is MOVE TITLE.
ORIGINAL
• A recorded video (title) in as is form is called an ORIGINAL. A single recording (from record start to stop) forms a
single title.
Basic procedure for editing an original title recorded in
VR mode
Load a disc.
Select the title to be edited, and edit.
• Erasing Unnecessary Scenes from an Original Title
(ERASE SCENE) (page 60).
• Inputting/Changing Title Name (CHANGE TITLE
NAME) (page 62).
• Changing Thumbnail (CHANGE THUMBNAIL) (page
64).
• Making Sections in a Title (DIVIDE CHAPTER) (page
65).
• Combining Chapters Together (COMBINE CHAPTERS)
(page 66).
• Disabling Title Edit and Erase (TITLE PROTECT) (page
66).
• Erasing All Titles (page 67).
• Erasing by Selecting a Title (or Chapter) (page 67).
PLAY LIST
• A title created by editing based on originals is called a
PLAY LIST. A play list can be remade any number of
times.

Basic procedure for editing titles recorded in VR mode

4
NOTE
• A Play List is a list which describes the playback sequence of originals, and it does not actually copy the
originals. This makes it possible to perform editing while
using only a little disc space.
Recordings on DVD-RW/R in Video
mode
The following content can be edited.
• Input (change) title name (page 62)
• Erase title (page 67)
NOTE
• ERASE TITLE for a recording in Video mode will change
settings so that the “erased” title cannot be seen in the
REC LIST, but this does not mean that the video is actually
erased. (Free time on the disc will not increase. With a
DVD-RW recorded in Video mode, free time on the disc
will increase when the title recorded last is erased.)
• Editing is not possible if the disc has been finalized (page
84). With a DVD-RW, editing is possible again if finalization
is canceled.
• Additional recording and editing can be done using only
this Recorder until the disc is finalized.

Editing cannot be done in the following cases.
• Play Lists cannot be created for discs recorded in Video
mode.
• Play Lists cannot be created for recordings on DVD-R.
• Finalized DVD-RWs (Video mode) cannot be edited.
