Introduction
Dear Magnavox customer,
Instruction manuals are usually very dry since they are technically-oriented and often poorly
translated. I have been employed by Magnavox for this reason.
Allow me to introduce myself.
My name is Phil. I will be guiding you through the instruction manual and try to be of help in
operating your new device. At appropriate points along the way, I will be providing you with the
following information:
(Question)?
Here I will be explaining
seemingly unimportant things.
Tip
Here I will be giving you
instructions on functions that
help make it easier to use your
DVD Recorder.
Problem
Here I will help you find the
cause of problems and their
solutions.
I hope you have lots of fun with your new DVD Recorder.
Phil
P.S. If you have questions or if problems come up during operation, please see the helpful
information in the chapter 'Before you call technical support. If this doesn't help you resolve the
problem, please call the customer support service for your country.
The corresponding telephone numbers and e-mail addresses are listed in the warranty booklet
provided.
Introduction
13
Welcome to the large family of Magnavox DVD owners.
Thank you for buying a MDV630R/MDV650R .
Please take the time to read this owner's manual before using your DVD recorder. It contains
important information and notes regarding operation.
The DVD recorder should not be turned on immediately after transportation from a
cold to a hot area or vice versa, or in conditions of extreme humidity.
Wait at least three hours after transporting the device. The DVD recorder needs this to
acclimate to its new environment (temperature, air humidity, etc.).
Your Magnavox team hopes you
will enjoy
using your new DVD recorder.
What is a DVD?
DVDs (Digital Video Discs) are the new storage medium that combines
the convenience of the Compact Disc with the latest advanced digital
video technology. DVD Video uses state-of-the-art MPEG2 data
compression technology that allows an entire film to be put on a single
5-inch disc.
How high is the resolution compared to VHS?
The crystal-clear digital pictures have a resolution of over 500 lines, with
720 pixels (picture elements) per line. This resolution is more than
double that of VHS and is superior to Laser Discs. The quality can be
compared to digital masters made in recording studios.
What is DVD+RW?
DVD+ReWritable (DVD+RW) uses phase-change media, the same
technology that formed the basis for CD-ReWritable. A high-power laser
is used to change the reflectivity of the recording layer. This process
means the disc can be recorded on more than a thousand times.
What is DVD+R?
DVD+R (recordable DVD). In contrast to DVD+RW, this disc can only
be recorded once. If a disc has not been finalized after recording, it can
continue to be recorded upon in the DVD Recorder. Old recordings can
be later deleted, but they cannot be overwritten. The deleted titles are
marked as 'Deleted title.'
For this disc to be played in a DVD player, it must be 'finalized' in the
DVD recorder. After this has been completed, no further recordings can
be added.
What can my DVD recorder do?
Your Magnavox DVD recorder is a recorder and player for digital video
discs, with a two-way compatibility to the universal DVD Video standard.
This means that:
•)existing pre-recorded DVDs can be played.
•)recordings made on your DVD recorder can play on existing DVD
Video players and DVD-ROM drives. In some cases, the discs may have
to be finalized before they will play on other DVD players.

codes of the player and disc do not match, playback is not possible.
This device will only play Region 1 DVDs or DVDs manufactured to be played in all regions ('ALL').
DVDs from other regions cannot be played in this DVD recorder.

Introduction
17
In a cabinet, allow about 2.5 cm (1 inch) of free space around the recorder for adequate
ventilation.
Make sure that air can circulate freely through the ventilation slots on the machine. Do not place
the device on an unsteady base.
Make sure that no objects or liquids enter the recorder. Do not place vases or similar objects
on the DVD recorder. If liquid spils into it, immediately disconnect the recorder from the power
supply and call Magnavox for advice.
Keep the DVD recorder away from domestic heating equipment and other sources of heat, as well
as direct sunlight.
Do not place any combustible objects on the device (candles, etc.).
Make sure children do not place any foreign objects into the openings or the disc tray.
Cleaning discs
Some problems occur because the disc inside the recorder is dirty (frozen picture, sound
disruptions, picture distortions). To avoid these problems, discs should be cleaned on a regular
basis.
1
2
When a disc is dirty, clean it with a soft cloth. Wipe the disc
from the center to the edge in a straight line.
Do not use solvents such as benzine, thinner, commercially
available cleaners, or anti-static sprays intended for analog discs.
Can I use a cleaning disc intended for DVD players?
Since the optical unit (laser) of the DVD recorder operates at a higher
power than regular DVD or CD players, these kinds of cleaning CDs
may damage the optical unit (laser).
Therefore, refrain from using a cleaning CD!
?
Special functions of your new DVD
recorder
Your MAGNAVOX DVD recorder has special functions that will make day-to-day use of your
new DVD recorder easier for you.
This screen provides you with an overview of the inserted disc. Each index screen corresponds
to a recording. At the right-hand side of the screen, a disc pointer is shows the duration and
position on the disc of the selected recording.
This function can be used to delete commercial interruptions during a film as well as other scenes.
The corresponding scenes are marked, then skipped as desired. This is saved on the DVD so any
DVD player will also know to skip these scenes. You must make edits compatible.

Introduction
ENGLISH
MP3 files are highly compressed pieces of music. The amount of data of the original audio
material is reduced by 1/10 of the original size using a special process. This enables you to fit up
to 10 hours of music on a single CD.
These kinds of music CDs can be played using this recorder.
Normally, a new recording is made on the current location on the disc. This is the same with video
cassettes. However, by holding down REC/OTR n , the new recording will be made after the last
recording on the disc. This helps you avoid recording by mistake.
New recordings on a DVD+R disc will always be added after the end of all recordings.
The Magnavox DVD recorder can play DVDs and CDs. DVDs made using this DVD recorder
can be played in most other DVD players.
This is a standard from Dolby Laboratories for the transmission of 5.1 channel sound. This

Connecting the DVD recorder
Preparing the remote control for
operation
The remote control and its batteries are packed separately in the original DVD recorder
packaging. You must install the batteries in the remote control before use.
1
2
Take the remote control and the enclosed batteries (2 AA
batteries).
Remove the battery compartment lid, insert the batteries as
shown, then replace the battery compartment lid. Always install
the +/- ends of the batteries as indicated inside the battery
compartment.
The remote control is now ready to use.
Its range is approximately 16-32 feet (5 to 10 meters).
Aim correctly
In the following sections, you require the remote control for the first
time. When using, always aim the front of the remote control at the
DVD recorder, and not at the TV.
Tip
Connecting your DVD recorder to the TV
The necessary cable connections must be made before you can record or playback TV programs
using your DVD recorder.
Connect the DVD recorder directly to the TV. Connecting a video cassette recorder between
the DVD recorder and the TV could result in poor picture quality because of the copy
protection system built into the DVD recorder.
20
Connecting the DVD recorder
ENGLISH
When you install your DVD recorder for the first time, select one of the following options:
'Connecting with Component Video (Y Cr Cb, YUV)
If your TV is equipped with Component Video (Y Cr Cb, YUV)
What is 'Component Video (Y PB PR)'?
It is a system for transmitting high-quality video by splitting the video
signal into the Y (brightness), U and V (red minus brightness, blue minus
brightness) components. The jacks for these cables are usually red,
green, and blue.
This connection provides a studio quality picture.
?
'Connecting with S@Video (Y/C)'
If your TV is equipped with a S-Video (SVHS) jack.
What is a 'S@Video (Y/C) cable'?
Also called a S-VHS cable, it is a video connection standard in which the
Y signal and the C signal are transmitted separately. This mini-din
jack/jack is also called a hosiden jack/jack.
?
'Connecting with a Video (CVBS) cable'
If your TV is equipped with a Video (CVBS) jack.
What is a 'Video (CVBS)' jack?
This typically yellow jack is used to transmit composite video signals
(FBAS, CVBS). This system transmits the Y and C signals over the same
line. In some cases, this can lead to picture distortions, or 'Moiré'.
?
'Connecting only with the antenna cable'
If you do not wish to use any other cable. You may use an antenna cable (RF coaxial) if you prefer
or if your TV has only an Antenna In jack (no other audio and video in jacks). The TV's Antenna In
jack may be labeled ANT IN, RF IN, 75 ohm, etc. Check your TV instructions for details.

Switching audio recording (stereo, SAP)
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).
In order to record TV programs in stereo or SAP, you can select stereo or SAP as a default
setting. This setting will only become active when the sound of a TV program is broadcast 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).

General information
What kind of discs can be used for recording?
You can used two different types of DVDs with this DVD recorder:
DVD+RW
This disc can be recorded on and then erased.
DVD+R
This disc can only be recorded on once.
For this DVD to be played in a DVD player, it must be finalized. After
this is done, no more recordings can be added to this disc.
If this disc is only to be played in the DVD recorder, then it does not
have to be finalized. Recordings can be added and then deleted.
However, the location (playing time) of the deleted recording (title) will
no longer be available. See page 55 for details on finalizing discs.
?
You can make a spontaneous recording (for example, a program currently being shown) by
following the steps.
To do this, select the title to be overwritten or choose an 'Empty title' in the 'index screen'
with the B , A buttons.
If the recording is to be inserted between existing recordings, please note the length of the old
and new recording. If the new recording is too long, the recording (title/chapter) following it will
be overwritten.

Record)
To add a new recording after the last recording on a disc, press and
hold the REC/OTR n button until 'SAFE REC' appears in the display.
For DVD+R, each new recording is always placed after all previous

Please refer to 'Recording with automatic switch@off', if you want to start a recording
manually and conclude it within a specific amount of time. This permits accidentally recording to
