DICHIARAZIONE DI CONFORMITA’
Si dichiara che l’apparecchio DVDR3300H,
DVDR3330H, DVDR5330H Philips risponde
alle prescrizioni dell’art. 2 comma 1 del D.M.
28 Agosto 1995 n. 548.
Remove fuse cover and fuse.
Fix new fuse which should be a BS1362
5 Amp, A.S.T.A. or BSI approved type.
Refit the fuse cover.
If the fitted plug is not suitable for your socket
outlets, it should be cut off and an appropriate
plug fitted in its place.
If the mains plug contains a fuse, this should
have a value of 5 Amp. If a plug without a fuse
is used, the fuse at the distribution board
should not be greater than 5 Amp.
Note: The severed plug must be disposed of to
avoid a possible shock hazard should it be
inserted into a 13 Amp socket elsewhere.
How to connect a plug
The wires in the mains lead are coloured with
the following code: blue = neutral (N),
brown = live (L).
z As these colours may not correspond with the
colour markings identifying the terminals in your
plug, proceed as follows:
– Connect the blue wire to the terminal
marked N or coloured black.
– Connect the brown wire to the terminal
marked L or coloured red.
– Do not connect either wire to the earth
terminal in the plug, marked E (or ˛) or
coloured green (or green and yellow).
Before replacing the plug cover, make certain
that the cord grip is clamped over the sheath
of the lead - not simply over the two wires.

Special Features
English
This function enables you to record a programme
from your Satellite Receiver or any other devices.
Make sure that the device is connected to the
EXT2 AUX-I/O socket of this recorder, and the
timer setting has been done on the connected
device.
i.LINK, is also known as ‘FireWire’ and ‘IEEE
1394’. This connection is used for the transfer of
high bandwidth digital signals as used by digital
video (DV) camcorders. It carries all audio and
video signals via a single cable.
‘Time Shift Buffer’
As soon as you turn on this recorder, the
programme showing on the TV will be stored into
the ‘Time Shift Buffer’. It acts as a temporary HDD
storage of your recordings. The contents will be
automatically deleted after 6 hours or when you
turn off this recorder. To store the contents on
the hard disk permanently, you have to mark the
section in the ‘Time Shift Buffer’ for recording to
prevent them from being deleted.
This is a simple programming system for
recorders. To use it, enter the programming
number associated with your television
programme. You can find this number in your
favourite listings magazine.
‘FlexTime’
You can watch or recall a TV programme while it
is still being recorded. You do not have to wait
until the end of the recording before starting
playback. You can also watch a different
programme from the hard disk while it is
recording something else.
‘Instant Replay’
You can repeat a scene of a live TV programme by
pressing JUMP BACK button on the remote
control, as often as you like. If you wish to return
to the live TV programme, just press TUNER.
‘Pause Live TV’
A live TV programme is now under your control.
You can pause the programme by pressing PAUSE
button and resume playback at the scene it was
interrupted by pressing PLAY button. If you want
to return to the live TV programme, just press
TUNER.

2005-10-19 4:16:27 PM
What kind of disc should I use for
recording?
You can only record on DVD±R or DVD±RW
discs. DVD±R/±RW is the most compatible
recordable DVD format on the market today.
They are fully compatible with most of the
existing DVD-Video players and DVD-ROM
drives in computers.
What are Titles and Chapters?
A DVD disc contains Titles and Chapters,
which are similar to the Titles and Chapters of
a book. A Title is often a complete movie and
is broken down into Chapters, or individual
scenes from the movies.
English
Frequently Asked Questions
Title
Chapter Chapter Chapter Chapter
What is the capacity of a DVD±R/
±RW disc?
chapter markers
4.7GB, or equivalent to six CDs. You can
store only one hour of recordings on a single
disc at the highest quality (DVD standard) and
about 8 hours recordings at the lowest quality
(VHS standard).
Programmes are recorded as a single title.
They may consist of one chapter or a few
chapters within a title, depending on the
recording settings.
What is the difference between
DVD±R and DVD±RW?
How do I set up Titles and
Chapters?
DVD±R is “recordable” and DVD±RW is
“erasable” and “rewritable”. With a DVD±R,
you can record multiple sessions on the same
disc. But when the disc is full, you cannot
record any more on the disc. The DVD±RW
allows you to record over the same disc again
and again.
What does “finalising” a disc do?
What is DV?
Using DV, also known as i.LINK, you can
connect a DV-equipped camcorder to this
recorder using a single DV cable for input and
output of audio, video, data and control
signals.
– This recorder is only compatible with DVformat (DVC-SD) camcorders. Digital satellite
tuners and Digital VHS video recorders are
not compatible.
– You cannot connect more than one DV
camcorder at a time to this recorder.
– You cannot control this recorder from
external equipment connected via the DV IN
socket.
Can I copy a VHS tape or DVD
from an external player?
Yes, but only if the VHS tape or DVD is not
copy-protected.
The recorder will automatically create a new
Title every time you start a new recording.
You can then add Chapters to these
recordings manually or have them
automatically inserted at a specific intervals.
Finalising a disc locks the disc so it can no
longer be recorded. This is only required for
DVD±R. It will then be compatible with
virtually any DVD player. To remove a disc
without finalising it, simply stop recording and
eject the disc. You will still be able to record
on the disc if there is room for more
recordings.
How good is the quality of the
recording?
There are a few picture quality levels to
choose from, ranging from “HQ” (1 hour
recording at high quality) to “SEP” (8 hours
recording at VHS quality) on a recordable
DVD. Press REC MODE button on the
remote control to choose the quality level that
best suits your purpose and the length of
recording.

Hours of recordings can be stored on the HDD or an Ł

Care and Safety Information
English
CAUTION!
High voltage! Do not open.
You run the risk of getting an
electric shock.
The machine does not contain any
user-serviceable parts. Please leave
all maintenance work to qualified
personnel.
Setup precautions
Finding a suitable location
– Place the set on a flat, hard and stable
surface. Do not place the set on a carpet.
– Do not position the set on top of
other equipment that might heat it up
(e.g., receiver or amplifier).
– Do not put anything under the set
(e.g., CDs, magazines).
– Install this unit near the AC outlet and
where the AC power plug can be reached
easily.
Space for ventilation
– Place the apparatus in a location with
adequate ventilation to prevent internal
heat build up. Allow at least 10 cm (4.5”)
clearance from the rear and the top of
the set and 5cm (2.3”) from the left and
right to prevent overheating.
5cm (2.3")
10cm (4.5")
10cm (4.5")
5cm (2.3")
Avoid high temperatures, moisture,
water and dust
– Apparatus must not be exposed to
dripping or splashing.
– Do not place any sources of danger on
the apparatus (e.g., liquid filled objects,
lighted candles).
Cleaning discs
Some problems occur (frozen picture,
sound disruptions, picture distortions)
because the disc inside the recorder is
dirty . To avoid these problems, discs
should be cleaned on a regular basis.
To clean a disc, use a micro fibre cleaning
cloth and wipe the disc from the center
to the edge in a straight line.
CAUTION!
Do not use solvents such as benzene,
thinner, commercially available cleaners,
or anti-static sprays intended for discs.
HDD (Hard Disk Drive)
handling care
The HDD is a fragile piece of device that is
easily prone to damage due to its long
recording capacity and high speed operation.
– Do not move the unit while it is
turned on.
– Do not remove the AC power plug
from the power outlet during operation.
– Do not use the unit in excessively hot
or humid places. It may cause
condensation to form inside the unit.
If the HDD fails, playback and recording
are not possible. In this case, it will be
necessary to replace the HDD unit.
WARNING!
The HDD is not a device for storing
recorded content permanently. We
recommend that you copy the important
video content to a recordable DVD disc as
backup.

Record on DVD Recordable Disc
English
IMPORTANT!
– You can only copy the recorded
titles in the hard disk drive of this
recorder to a recordable DVD.
Direct recording from the TV
programmes or external input
source to a recordable DVD is not
possible.
– Copy-protected (Copy-Once or
Copy-Never) movies and DVD
Videos cannot be copied to the
HDD.
Discs for recording
Two different types of DVD recordable
discs can be used with this recorder:
DVD±RW (DVD Rewritable)
– Discs that are re-writable can be used
for multiple recordings once existing data
is erased.
About copying
You can copy a recorded title from the
HDD (hard disk drive) to a recordable
DVD.
The time required for copying from HDD
to a recordable DVD depends on the
recording mode of the HDD recordings. It
is not possible to change the recording
mode for the copying process. It is
therefore important that you choose the
appropriate recording mode when you set
up the recording to the HDD.
The copying process is done at a higher
speed than the recording.
HDD J Recordable DVD
HDD Recording Mode
HQ (high quality)
SP (standard play)
SPP (standard play plus)
LP (long play)
EP (extended play)
SLP (super long play)
SEP (super extended play)
Hours of recordings can be
stored in a 4.7GB DVD±R/±RW
DVD±R (DVD Recordable)
– Discs can only be used for a single
recording. Each new recording is always
added at the end of all previous
recordings as existing recordings cannot
be overwritten.
– Editing can be done on DVD±R discs
as long as they have not been finalised.
– You can also delete unwanted
recordings. However, the disc space
occupied by the deleted recordings
cannot be recovered for further
recording.
– To play a DVD±R disc on other DVD
player, it must be finalised (see page 53).
After this is done, no more data can be
added to the disc.

Glossary
English
Analogue: Sound that has not been turned into
numbers. Analogue sound varies, while digital sound
has specific numerical values. These sockets send
audio through two channels, the left and right.
Aspect ratio: The ratio of vertical and horizontal
sizes of a displayed image. The horizontal vs.
vertical ratio of conventional TVs is 4:3, and that
of wide-screens is 16:9.
AUDIO OUT sockets: Red and white sockets
on the back of the system that send audio to
another system (TV, Stereo, etc).
Chapter: Sections of a picture or a music piece
on a DVD that are smaller than titles. A title is
composed of several chapters. Each chapter is
assigned a chapter number enabling you to locate
the chapter you want.
Digital: Sound that has been converted into
numerical values. Digital sound is available when you
use the DIGITAL AUDIO OUT COAXIAL. These
sockets send audio through multiple channels,
instead of just two channels as analogue does.
Disc menu: A screen display prepared for
allowing selection of images, sounds, subtitles,
multi-angles, etc recorded on a DVD.
Index Picture Screen: A screen that gives an
overview of a DVD±RW or DVD±R. An Index
Picture represents each recording.
HDD (Hard disk drive): This is a mass data
storage device used in computers, etc. Disks are
flat, circular, rigid plates coated with a thin magnetic
media. Magnetic heads record data on the rapidly
spinning disks. This facilitates the reading and
writing of large amounts of data at high speed.
PBC: Playback Control. Refers to the signal
recorded on video CDs or SVCDs for controlling
playback. By using menu screens recorded on a
Video CD or SVCD that supports PBC, you can
enjoy interactive playback and searching.
PCM: Pulse Code Modulation. A digital audio
encoding system.
Parental control: Limits disc play according to
the age of the users or the limitation level in each
country. The limitation varies from disc to disc;
when it is activated, playback will be prohibited if
the software’s level is higher than the user-set level.
Region code: A system allowing discs to be
played only in the region designated. This unit will
only play discs that have compatible region codes.
You can find the region code of your unit by
looking on the product label. Some discs are
compatible with more than one region (or ALL
regions).
S-Video: Produces a clear picture by sending
separate signals for the luminance and the color.
You can use S-Video only if your TV has an SVideo In socket.
Title: The longest section of a movie or music
feature on DVD. Each title is assigned a title
number, enabling you to locate the title you want.
VIDEO OUT socket: Yellow socket on the back
of the system that sends the DVD picture
video to a TV.
JPEG: A very common digital still picture format.
A still-picture data compression system proposed
by the Joint Photographic Expert Group, which
features small decrease in image quality in spite of
its high compression ratio.
MP3: A file format with a sound data compression
system. “MP3” is the abbreviation of Motion
Picture Experts Group 1 (or MPEG-1) Audio
Layer 3. By using the MP3 format, one CD-R or
CD-RW can contain about 10 times more data
then a regular CD.
