Overview of functions
Functioning of the device
Your Philips DVD/HDD recorder mainly consists of the following components:
HDD recorder
For recording in a temporary storage on the HDD (Time shift Buffer)
As soon as you turn on the DVD/HDD recorder, it automatically records the current TV channel selected on the DVD/HDD recorder in this
temporary storage. As a result, you can 'rewind' to a scene ( D ) or watch a still picture ( PAUSE 9 ), while the current TV show is still being
recorded.
Recordings in the time shift buffer are only temporarily available (factory settings: 3 hours).
For storing recordings on the HDD
You can mark recordings in the time shift buffer for storage on the HDD using REC/OTR n .
These recordings will be transferred to the HDD when you switch off the device using STANDBY m or when the time periode of the time shift
buffer ( e.g. 3 hours) expires.
DVD Recorder
For archiving (copying) HDD recordings on a DVD+RW/+R
Recordings on the HDD can be selected in a title overview screen (Media Browser) and then copied (archived) on a DVD+RW/+R.
TV tuner
For recordings independently from your TV set
You can use your DVD/HDD recorder as a TV tuner, allowing you the comfort of pausing a running TV show and continue watching it later. You
can make recordings on the HDD without having to turn on the TV set.
DVD/CD/MP3 player
For playing back recorded DVDs, CDs , CD<RW/Rs
You can use this device to play back DVD+R/RWs, DVD-R/RWs, (S)Video CDs(CD-RW/R), Audio CDs(CD-RW/R), MP3 CDs(CD-RW/R) of the
respective standard.

Introduction
Welcome to the growing family of owners of PHILIPS equipment.
Thank you for buying a HDRW 720/17 .
Discs you can use
The following discs can be used in your DVD recorder for playback
and recording:
Recording and playback
DVD+RW (Digital Versatile Disc + rewriteable)
uses phase change media, the same technology on which
rewritable CDs are based. A high-performance laser is
used to change the reflective properties of the recording
layer; this process can be repeated more than a thousand
times.
Time-shift TV viewing is possible with the hard disk drive (HDD) in
your DVD-Recorder./Hard Disk By storing the recording in a time shift
buffer, you can 'rewind' to a scene you missed while the current TV
show is still being recorded.
Recordings in the time shift buffer will be automatically deleted e.g.
after 3 hours if the period of the time shift buffer is set to 3 hours
(factory setting).
Moreover, you can play back a DVD disc or a recorded title from the
HDD while the current TV channel is being recorded in the
background.
You can store recordings from the time shift buffer on the built-in
HDD and transfer (archive) them later on a DVD+RW/+R disc.
DVD+R (Digital Versatile Disc + recordable)
Unlike a DVD+RW disc, this disc can only be written to
once. If it is not finalized after a recording, further
recordings can be added to it. Old recordings can be later
deleted but they can no longer be overwritten. The
deleted recordings (titles) are marked 'Deleted title'.
Before this disc can be played in a DVD player, it must be
finalized in the DVD recorder. Once this process is
complete, no further recordings can be added.
Playback only
Furthermore your Philips DVD Recorder /Hard Disk is a device for
recording on DVD+RW/+R Discs and for playing digital video discs see
next chapter. In the rest of the user manual the DVD Recorder/Hard
Disk will be mentioned as DVD-Recorder.
DVD Video (Digital Versatile Disc)
is a storage medium that combines the convenience of
the compact disc with the latest digital video technology.
DVD video uses modern MPEG2 data compression
technology that enables an entire feature film to be
stored on a single five-inch disc.
Please take the time to read this operating manual before using your
DVD Recorder. It contains important information on how to set up
and operate the device.
DVD-R(DVD-Recordable)
These discs can only be played back if the recording was
made in video mode and the recording was finalized.
We hope you will enjoy your new DVD Recorder / Hard Disk,
your Philips team!
If you have any problems operating the device, please read the section
entitled 'Before you call an engineer'. If this doesn't help you to resolve the
problem, please call the customer support service for your country.
You can also visit the website 'http://www.p4c.philips.com' .
DVD-RW (DVD-Rewritable)
These discs can only be played back if the recording was
made in video mode and the recording was finalized.
Audio CD (Compact Disc Digital Audio)
Super Audio CD
(plays only the CD layer of a hybrid SACD disc)
Video CD (Format 1.0, 1.1, 2.0)

Introduction
Your PhilipsDVD recorder has a number of special functions to make it easier to use and to
enhance your enjoyment.
You can operate the main functions on your television using your DVD-Recorder recorder remote
control, even if your television is not a Philips.
You can upgrade the software of your DVD-Recorder with a CD-ROM.
On the web site http://www.p4c.philips.com under the model number 'HDRW 720/17' you will find
the data and the upgrade information.
This connector is also known as a 'FireWire' or 'IEEE 1394'. This connector is used to transmit
wide digital broadband signals that are used for digital video camcorders. Audio and video signals
are transmitted using a cable. In addition to DV and Hi8 camcorders, PCs with digital video output
can also be connected to the digital input.
This screen tells you what's on the disc. Each index screen represents a recording. On the right
hand side of the screen you can also see a disc indicator that shows the position and length of the
current recording on the disc in a graphic format.
This function enables you to simply delete unwanted scenes. The relevant scenes are marked and
skipped as required. If you store (archive) such titles on a DVD+RW/+R you can decide if you want
to store the original title (with the hidden scenes) or the edited title (without the hidden scenes).
MP3 CDs can be played on this machine.
MP3 files are highly compressed music files. The data is compressed to 1/10 of the volume of the
original audio material using a special process. This means that 10 hours of music can be stored on
a single CD.
The Philips DVD recorder can play back pre-recorded DVDs and CDs. DVDs recorded using this
DVD recorder can be played back on current and future DVD players.
Dolby Digital is a standard developed by Dolby Laboratories for transmitting from 1 to 5 full-range
channels as well as a low frequency (.1) channel for a total of 5.1 discrete channels. The
loudspeakers are arranged front left, front middle, front right, rear left and rear right. This system is
currently the most common system and is used in cinemas.
With this DVD recorder each soundtrack in 2-channel Dolby Digital is recorded onto a
DVD+RW/+R.

Connecting the DVD recorder
Connecting the DVD recorder
Connecting to the TV
Choose from the following connections:
Connection with Component<Video< (Y Pb Pr) cable
Connection with S<videocable
Connection with Video (CVBS) cable
Connection with the antenna cable only
Connection with Component<Video< (Y Pb Pr)
cable
Component Video is the highest quality system for transmitting video
by splitting the video signal into the Y (brightness), U and V (red minus
brightness, blue minus brightness) components. The signals are sent
over separate lines. The plugs for these cables and the corresponding
jacks are usually red, green, and blue.
Please note the color order
The colors of the jacks on the DVD Recorder must match those on the
TV (red-red/blue-blue/green-green). If they are not matched properly,
this could cause the color of the picture to be reversed or there could be
no picture at all.
3 Use an audio cable and plug one end into the AUDIO L/R (OUT
1) jack at the back of the DVD Recorder (next to COMPONENT
VIDEO-OUT1 ) and the other into the red/white Audio In jacks of
the TV (usually called Audio in', 'AV in'. Please see your TV's
instruction manual).
O Read the next chapter 'Connecting additional devices' on how
to connect additional devices (satellite receivers,
videorecorders,...) to the input-/output jacks.
Then, read the chapter on 'Connecting to the AC-outlet.
Connecting with a S<Video (Y/C) cable
In addition, the signal can be 'interlaced' or use 'progressive scan.'
Interlaced
The regular video/TV signal is interlaced, i.e. the even and odd lines are
formed as half pictures in an alternate fashion.
Progressive scan
With progressive scan, each picture is structured (approx. 50/60 times
per second depending on the TV system) as a complete picture, i.e. the
even and odd lines are formed together. Disruptive picture flickering is
avoided as is the case with 100 Hz TV devices.
1 Use the Component Video (Y Pb Pr) cable and connect one end to
the red, blue, green COMPONENT VIDEO-OUT1 jacks at the
back of the DVD Recorder and the other end to the Component
Video In jacks of the TV.
2 If your TV set is equipped with a 'progressive scan' jack, please use
this jack. (Usually called 'Video In Y Pb Pr'. Please see your TV's
instruction manual).
13
This connecting cable, also known as the SVHS cable, is used to
transmit the brightness signal (Y signal) and color signal (C signal)
separately. This mini DIN jack/plug is also called a Hosiden jack/plug.
1 Use a S-Video (SVHS) cable and plug one end into the S-VIDEO
(Y/C)-OUT2 jack at the back of the DVD Recorder and the other
end into the S-Video (SVHS) In jack of the TV (usually called
'S-Video in' or 'SVHS in'. See your TV's instruction manual).
2 Use an audio (cinch) cable and plug one end into the red/white
cinch jack AUDIO L/R (OUT 2) at the back of the DVD
Recorder (next to S-VIDEO (Y/C)-OUT2 ) and the other into
the corresponding red/white audio input jack of the TV (usually
called Audio in', 'AV in'. See your TV's instruction manual).
O Read the next chapter 'Connecting additional devices' on how
to connect additional devices (satellite receivers,
videorecorders,...) to the input-/output jacks.
Then, read the chapter on 'Connecting to the AC-outlet'.
Connecting the DVD recorder
This cable, usually featuring yellow cinch plugs, is used for transmitting
the Composite Video Baseband Signal (CVBS). In this method of
transmission the color signal and the brightness signal are transmitted
on the same cable. Under certain circumstances, this may lead to
problems with the picture, such as 'Moiré' patterns.
Connecting to the AC<outlet
Always check if the local mains voltage matches the voltage range
printed on the type plate at the back or bottom of the DVD-recorder.
If not consult your dealer or the customer support from your country.
1 Switch on the TV set.
1 Use a video (CVBS) cable and plug one end into the yellow jack
VIDEO (CVBS)-OUT2 at the back of the DVD Recorder and
the other end into the Video In jack (usually yellow) of the TV
(usually called Video in or AV in. See your TV's instruction
manual).
2 Use an audio (cinch) cable and plug one end into the red/white
cinch jack AUDIO L/R (OUT 2) at the back of the DVD
Recorder (under to VIDEO (CVBS)-EXT2 ) and the other into
the corresponding red/white audio input jack of the TV (usually

one of the audio formats of the DVD recorder (MPEG2 and Dolby
Digital).
Consult the owner's manual of your receiver to find out which audio
formats it supports.
a A loud distorted sound is coming from my speakers
b The receiver does not support the digital audio format of the DVD
Recorder. The audio format of the inserted DVD is displayed in the
display panel when another language is switched on. Playback using
6-channel digital surround sound is only possible when the receiver
has a digital multi-channel sound decoder.
Connecting audio devices to the analog
audio jacks
There were two analog audio output jacks AUDIO L/R (OUT
2) (audio signal output left/right) and two audio input jacks AUDIO
L/R (IN-EXT 2) (audio input left/right) on the back of the DVD
Recorder.
These can be used to connect the following devices:
•) A receiver with Dolby Surround Pro Logic
•) A receiver with two<channel analog stereo
Can I use the 'Phono' input on my amplifier?
This amplifier jack (input) should only be used for record players without a
pre-amplifier. Do not use this input jack to connect the DVD Recorder.
This could damage the DVD Recorder or the amplifier.

Recording on the HDD
General
The Time shift Buffer
ENGLISH
As soon as you turn on the DVD recorder, the currently selected TV
channel on the DVD-Recorder is recorded in a temporary storage
(Time shift Buffer).
Recordings in the time shift buffer will be automatically deleted e.g.
after 3 hours if the period of the time shift buffer is set to 3 hours
(factory setting). Only recordings marked in the Time shift Buffer will
be stored on the the built-in HDD For more information, read the
next section 'The Time Shift Buffer'.
The following additional information is stored with each recording:
•) name of the recording
If no name is recognized from the TV Guide On Screen™systems data,
only the program number (program name) and the time will be stored
as the name.
•) length of the recording
•) recording mode (quality)
•) date of the recording
•) index picture of the recording
As a result of the high data transfer speed of the HDD, it is possible to
play back recordings from the time shift buffer while the recording is
still in process.
To facilitate the search of a specific position, a chapter marker is
recorded every 5 minutes. How you switch off this function you will
read in chapter 'User preferences for the HDD' in the section
'Preferences/Chapters'. After the recording is completed, you can
select these markers with N , O . Please make sure that the
chapter selection is activated (the 'CHAPTER' symbol lights up in the
info bar at the top of the screen). If necessary, you can activate it using
T/C .
If you change the TV channel on the DVD-Recorder ( CHANNEL q ,
CHANNEL r ) a new title is created with the new TV channel in the
time shift buffer. If you watch a TV show only for a short time (less
than 60 seconds) before you change to a different TV channel, no new
title is created.
Therefore, you can jump back to the currently selected TV
programusing JUMP BACK and watch a scene again.
Moreover, you can use all playback features such as still picture, slow
motion, search by time, search with N , O even with recordings
that are still in the time shift buffer.
In the meantime, the recording continues.
For easier navigation, you can change the time period of the time shift
buffer from 1 to 6 hours. 1 hour means that a recording is available
only for one hour before it is automatically deleted to make room for
the current recording.
If the TV Guide On Screen™system delivers title information, the latter
is also stored with the recording. When recording TV shows without
TV Guide On Screen™information, only the date and the time of the
recording are stored as title.
What is the advantage from 1 hour and 6 hours?
The complete time periode of the time will be displayed on the whole screen
of your TV.
With 1 hour you will get the highest comfort for searching a specific scene.
With 6 hours you will get the highest possible recording time.
Please observe that the Time shift Buffer needs also storage capacity on the
HDD. Depending of the selected record mode (picture quality):
6 hours in 'M1' = approx. 28GB
6 hours in 'M8' = approx. 3,4GB
How you enter the time periode, read in the chapter 'User preferences for
the HDD' in the section 'Preferences' / 'Recording'/ 'HDD buffer'.

Some TV programs broadcast additional audio (SAP - Secondary Audio
Program). In most cases this means an additional language is available.
For example, if a program is available in English and Spanish, Spanish can
be broadcast as the additional audio program (SAP).

SAP as the default setting. This setting does not become active until the
sound of a TV program is transmitted in Stereo or SAP.
When you playback the recording, you can playback the sound only in
the setting you selected for recording (a recording in SAP can be
played back only in SAP).
This setting only affects playback through the internal tuner of the
DVD recorder. The setting for the programmed recording (Timer) will
not be affected.
If you also want to use/change the language for the programmed
recording, you must change the language in the 'Preferences' menu

ENGLISH
Chapters
Also known as 'scenes', a DVD movie can be broken up into sections
much like the chapters of a book, that can be accessed quickly and
easily via the DVD menu or remote control.
NICAM
NICAM is a digital sound transmission system. Using NICAM, you can
transmit either 1 stereo channel or 2 separate mono channels.
However, if reception is poor and the sound distorted you can turn off
NICAM.
NTSC
National Television Systems Committee. The color TV broadcast
system used in the US, Canada and Japan. An NTSC picture is made up
of 525 horizontal lines and has inferior picture quality in comparison to
the PAL system. All Australian-sold DVD players are NTSC compatible,
however DVD's that are played on a television that is not compatible
will appear in black and white.
Region code
Since DVD films are not normally released in all parts of the world at
the same time, all DVD players have a specific regional code. Discs can
be given a regional code. If the regional codes differ between the player
and the disc, playback is not possible.
The regional code of the DVD recorder is shown on the type plate at
the back or bottom.
Pan & Scan
One method of converting a widescreen movie to fit in a standard 4:3
television is known as letterboxing (described above) and the other
commonly found process is Pan and Scan (also known as Panning and
Scanning). To retain a fullscreen 4x3 image, the most important part of
each scene is chosen and the left and right edges of the scene are
cropped. Obviously, this process results in a loss of some data and
does not fully represent the film as it was intended to be portrayed by
the director. As such, DVD enthusiasts are not overly fond of DVD's
authored via this method.
Macrovision
Macrovision is a copy-protection technique intended to keep you from
making copies of DVDs with your VCR. It works by continuously
adjusting the video signal level that results in a recording where the
brightness of the picture continuously fluctuates between light and
dark, and the color levels fluctuate between oversaturated and washed
out. Macrovision "encoded" DVDs contain a bit of data that tells the
DVD player to activate its internal macrovision circuitry in order to
prevent copying.
Regional Coding
A security system introduced to DVD at the request of Hollywood's
major studios to ensure that DVD's released and sold in one region
will not play on DVD machines in other regions. Movie distributors
therefore maintain control over release dates of their films, as well as
enabling discs to be produced that conform to different censorship
laws, language and subtitle requirements. When a DVD disc is
manufactured, a region code is applied at the authoring stage such that
the final disc will play only on those players distributed in the
designated world region.
