Features
HDD
• HDD recording
You can record up to 102 hours of video (in EP mode) on
the internal 80GB (gigabyte) hard disk (HDD) on the DVR420H/520H, or up to 204 hours on the 160GB DVR-720H.
With both recordable DVD and a high-capacity HDD in
the same recorder, you have the flexibility to keep
recordings on the HDD for quick access anytime, or
record to DVD for archiving or playing on other DVD
players.
• Disc History
The Disc History screen shows disc information,
including how much free space remains for recording,
for the last 30 recordable discs loaded in the recorder.
Every time you load a recordable disc, the Disc History is
automatically updated with the latest information.
• Copy between HDD and DVD
You can copy recordings from the HDD to recordable
DVD, or from DVD to the HDD. Usually you can use the
high-speed copy feature, which can copy an hour of video
in under two minutes (when recorded in EP mode using
a DVD-R Ver. 2.0 / 8x disc).
• Home Menu
The Home Menu gives you on-screen access to all the
recorder’s features in one convenient place, from setting
up the recorder, to programming a timer recording and
editing a recording.
You can also choose to copy material at a different
recording quality from the original. For example, you
might want to copy a FINE mode (highest quality)
recording on the HDD to SP (standard play) quality on a
DVD so that you can fit other recordings on the same
disc.
• One Touch Copy
One Touch Copy makes copying the currently playing title
from HDD to DVD, or DVD to HDD as simple as pressing
a button.
HDD
• Chase play VR mode
Using chase play you can start watching a recording
before the recording has finished. For example, you could
set a timer recording for a program that you’re going to
miss the first 15 minutes of, then start watching while the
recorder is still recording the program 15 minutes ahead
of you.
•
Simultaneous recording and playback
VR mode
HDD
Playback and recording for both DVDs and the built-in
hard disk drive (HDD) are completely independent. For
example you can record a broadcast program to either a
recordable DVD or the HDD, while watching another
recording you already made on the same DVD or on the
HDD.
6
En
• Disc Navigator
The on-screen Disc Navigator makes finding your way
around the contents of a disc or the HDD easy. For
recordable DVD and HDD content, moving thumbnail
images are displayed for ease of use. The Disc Navigator
is also where you can edit HDD and recordable DVD
content.
• Cinema surround sound in your home
Connect this recorder to a Dolby Digital and/or DTScompatible AV amp/receiver to enjoy full surround sound
effects from Dolby Digital and DTS DVD discs.
• Easy Timer Recording
Setting the recorder to record a program is simple from
the Easy Timer Recording screen. Set the channel to
record and the recording quality, then graphically set the
start and end times of the recording. That’s it!
• Program up to 32 timer recordings
You can program the recorder to record up to 32
programs, up to a month in advance, using the
VIDEO Plus+® system* for easy programming if you
want. As well as single programs, you can specify daily or
weekly recordings, too.
This recorder is also compatible with VPS/PDC systems,
which ensure you don’t miss a timer recording, even if
the broadcast is not running to schedule.

• One Touch Recording
Use One Touch Recording to start recording immediately
in 30 minute blocks. Each time you press the REC
button, the recording time is extended by another 30
minutes.
DVR-04_HDD_UK.book 7 ページ 2004年4月11日 日曜日 午後6時11分
Before you start
• Optimized recording
Optimized recording adjusts the recording quality
automatically if a timer recording will not fit onto a disc
with the settings that you made.
• Auto Start Recording from satellite receiver or
other set top box
With a satellite receiver or other set top box connected to
the AV2/AUTO START REC (INPUT 1/DECODER) inputs
of this recorder, you can start and stop recording
automatically according to the timer settings of the set
top box.
• High quality 16-bit Linear PCM audio
When recording using one of the high quality record
settings (FINE or MN32), the audio is recorded in
uncompressed 16-bit Linear PCM format. This delivers
great sounding audio to accompany the high picture
quality.
• Picture quality adjustment features
During playback, you can adjust various picture quality
settings to improve the picture. You can also adjust the
recording picture quality. For example, if you want to
make a DVD copy of an old video tape, you can optimize
the picture quality before transferring it to disc.
• Find what you want to watch quickly and easily
Unlike video tape that needs to be wound to the correct
place, you can jump right to the part of a DVD disc or the
HDD that you want to watch. Search for a point on a disc
by title, chapter or time.
• Manual recording
In addition to the four preset recording quality modes
(FINE, SP, LP and EP), the manual recording mode allows
you to access 32 different recording quality/time settings,
giving you precise control over the recording.
• Record to and from a DV camcorder (DVR-520H/
720H only)
This recorder has a built-in DV (Digital Video) input/
output jack for connection to a DV camcorder. This
makes it ideal for transferring camcorder footage to DVD
or HDD for editing. You can also transfer DVD or HDD
content back to the camcorder if you need to.

Play Video mode recordings on a regular DVD
player Video mode
Discs recorded using the Video mode can be played back
on regular DVD players, including computer DVD drives
compatible with DVD-Video playback*.
*
‘DVD-Video format’ recording: The use of the DVDVideo format for recording on DVD-R and DVD-RW discs
is referred to as recording in ‘Video mode’ on Pioneer’s
DVD recorders. Supporting playback of DVD-R / DVDRW discs is optional for manufacturers of DVD
playback equipment, and there is DVD playback
equipment that does not play DVD-R or DVD-RW discs
recorded in the DVD-Video format.
Note: ‘Finalization’ is required.
• WMA, MP3 and JPEG file playback
This recorder can play WMA and MP3 audio files and
JPEG picture files on CD-R, CD-RW or CD-ROM discs.
• Disc Back-up
The disc back-up feature gives you a convenient way to
back-up important material on DVD to another
recordable DVD disc. The material is first copied to the
HDD, then on to a second DVD disc.
HDD
• Recovery Recording
When a timer recording is set to use DVD but the disc
loaded at the time of the recording is unrecordable, the
program will automatically be recorded to the HDD.
HDD
• Auto Replace Recording
This feature is useful for regular timer recordings of a TV
program which you don’t want to keep after watching.
Each time the program is recorded, it replaces the one
currently on the HDD. There’s no need to manually delete
it later.
Note on copying:
Recording equipment should be used only for lawful copying and you
are advised to check carefully what is lawful copying in the country in
which you are making a copy. Copying of copyright material such as
films or music is unlawful unless permitted by a legal exception or
consented to by the rightowners.
• Safe, non-destructive editing VR mode
When you edit a DVD-RW, the actual content of the disc
(the Original content) is not touched. The edited version
(the Play List content) just points to various parts of the
Original content.
HDD
• Chapter marking VR mode
You can easily add chapter markers anywhere in your
recordings for easy editing.

WMA (Windows Media Audio) compatibility
Frequently asked questions
• What’s the difference between DVD-R and DVD-RW?
The Windows Media® logo printed on the box indicates
that this recorder can playback Windows Media Audio
content.
WMA is an acronym for Windows Media Audio and refers
to an audio compression technology developed by
Microsoft Corporation. WMA content can be encoded by
using Windows Media® Player version 7, 7.1, Windows
Media® Player for Windows® XP, or Windows Media®
Player 9 Series.
Microsoft, Windows Media, and the Windows logo are
trademarks, or registered trademarks of Microsoft
Corporation in the United States and/or other countries.
JPEG file compatibility
• What’s VR mode?
VR (Video Recording) mode is a special mode
designed for home DVD recording. It allows flexible
editing of recorded material compared to ‘Video
mode’. On the other hand, Video mode discs are
more compatible with other DVD players.
• Can I play my recordable discs in a regular DVD player?
Generally, DVD-R discs and DVD-RW discs recorded
in Video mode* are playable in a regular DVD player,
but they must be ‘finalized’ first. This process fixes
the contents of the disc to make them readable to
other DVD players as DVD-Video discs.
DVD-RW discs recorded in VR mode are playable in
some players.
• Sampling ratio: 4:4:4, 4:4:2, 4:2:0
This label indicates playback compatibility with
DVD-RW discs recorded in VR mode (Video
Recording format). However, for discs recorded with
a record-only-once encrypted program, playback can
only be achieved using the CPRM compatible device.
• Vertical resolution: 120 – 3840 pixels
• Progressive JPEG compatible: No
• File extensions: .jpg, jpeg, jif, jfif (must be used for the
recorder to recognize JPEG files – do not use for other
file types)
• File structure: The recorder can load up to 99 folders
/ 999 files at one time (if there are more files/folders
that this on the disc then more can be reloaded)
PC-created disc compatibility
Discs recorded using a personal computer may not be
playable in this unit due to the setting of the application
software used to create the disc. In these particular
instances, check with the software publisher for more
detailed information.
Discs recorded in packet write mode (UDF format) are
not compatible with this recorder.
Check the DVD-R/RW or CD-R/RW software disc boxes
for additional compatibility information.
10
For more information, see About DVD recording on
page 45.
• Compatible formats: Baseline JPEG and EXIF 2.2*
still image files
*File format used by digital still cameras
• Horizontal resolution: 160 – 5120 pixels
En
The most important difference between DVD-R and
DVD-RW is that DVD-R is a record-once medium,
while DVD-RW is a re-recordable/erasable medium.
You can re-record/erase a DVD-RW disc
approximately 1,000 times.
Note that Pioneer cannot guarantee that discs
recorded using this recorder will play on other players.
*
‘DVD-Video format’ recording: The use of the DVDVideo format for recording on DVD-R and DVD-RW discs
is referred to as recording in ‘Video mode’ on Pioneer’s
DVD recorders. Supporting playback of DVD-R / DVDRW discs is optional for manufacturers of DVD
playback equipment, and there is DVD playback
equipment that does not play DVD-R or DVD-RW discs
recorded in the DVD-Video format.
Note: ‘Finalization’ is required.
This recorder supports the recording of ‘copy-once’
broadcast programs using the CPRM copy protection
system (see CPRM on page 46) on CPRM-compliant
DVD-RW discs in VR mode. CPRM recordings can only
be played on players that are specifically compatible
with CPRM.

01
• Do I need two DVD recorders for editing? What kind of
editing can I do?
Unlike editing video tape, you only need one DVD
recorder to edit discs. With DVD, you edit by making
a ‘Play List’ of what to play and when to play it. On
playback, the recorder plays the disc according to the
Play List.

About the internal hard disk drive
The internal hard disk drive (HDD) is a fragile piece of
equipment. Please use the recorder following the
guidelines below to protect against possible HDD failure.
We recommend that you back up your important
recordings onto DVD-R/RW discs in order to protect against
accidental loss.
• Do not move the recorder while it is on.
Chapter 2
• Install and use the recorder on a stable, level surface.
• Do not block the rear vent/cooling fan.
• Do not use the recorder in excessively hot or humid
places, or in places that may be subject to sudden
changes in temperature. Sudden changes in
temperature can cause condensation to form inside
the recorder. This can be a cause of HDD failure.

Play List
Throughout this manual, you will often see the words
Original and Play List to refer to the actual content
and the edited version.
• Original content refers to what’s actually recorded
on the disc.
• Play List content refers to the edited version of the
disc—how the Original content is to be played.
• While the recorder is switched on, do not unplug
from the wall socket or switch the electricity off from
the breaker switch.
• Do not move the recorder immediately after
switching it off. If you need to move the recorder,
please follow the steps below:
1 After the message POWER OFF is shown in the
display, wait at least two minutes.
2 Unplug from the wall socket.
3 Move the recorder.
• If there’s a power failure while the recorder is on
there is a chance that some data on the HDD will be
lost.
• The HDD is very delicate. If used improperly or in an
unsuitable environment, it is possible that the HDD
will fail after a few years of use. Signs of problems
include playback unexpectedly freezing and
noticeable block noise (mosaic) in the picture.
However, sometimes there will be no warning signs
of HDD failure.
If the HDD fails, no playback of recorded material will
be possible. In this case it will be necessary to
replace the HDD unit.

Switching on and setting up
When you switch the recorder on for the first time, you
can make several basic settings using the Setup
Navigator feature. This takes you through setting the
clock, the internal TV tuner and the video and audio
output settings.
If you’re using the recorder for the first time, we strongly
recommend you use the Setup Navigator before starting
to use the recorder.
1 Switch on your TV and set the video input to this
recorder.
2 Press the STANDBY/ON button on the remote
control or the front panel to switch on.
When you switch on for the first time, your TV should
display the Setup Navigator screen. (If the Setup
Navigator doesn’t appear, you can also access it from the
Initial Setup menu; see page 99).
• If this recorder is connected to a compatible TV using
a fully-wired 21-pin SCART cable, the recorder will
take a few seconds to download country, TV screen
size and language information. (Check the manual
that came with your TV for compatibility information.)

About DVD recording
This recorder can record on both DVD-R and DVD-RW
media. The main difference between the two is that DVDR discs can only be recorded once, while DVD-RW can be
recorded, erased and re-recorded many times.
A further difference between the two disc types is that
only DVD-RW can be initialized for VR mode recording,
which offers much more comprehensive editing
functions compared to Video mode recording.
The big advantage, however, of Video mode is its
compatibility with standard DVD players, most of which
will not play VR mode DVD-RW discs (see also the notes
below).
While DVD-R discs can only be recorded using the Video
mode, you can initialize a DVD-RW disc for Video or VR
mode recordings. Once initialized (any previous content
is erased in this operation), all recordings on that disc
will be in the chosen recording mode.
Important
• You cannot play, edit or record on unfinalized DVD-R/
RW discs recorded in Video mode on other DVD
recorders. (Likewise, unfinalized Video mode discs
recorded on this recorder are not playable on other
players/recorders.)
• This recorder cannot record onto CD-R or CD-RW
discs.
• Pioneer takes no responsibility for recording failure
due to power cuts, defective discs, or damage to the
recorder.
• Fingerprints and small scratches on a disc can affect
playback and/or recording performance. Please take
proper care of your discs.
• Although this recorder can record PAL, SECAM,
NTSC and PAL-60, you can’t mix multiple TV line
systems on one disc. A disc can contain PAL and
SECAM recordings, or NTSC and PAL-60. See also
Input Line System on page 98.
Note
• Some DVD players, such as some Pioneer models,
are compatible with VR mode DVD-RW discs. Check
the operating instructions for your player for VR
mode compatibility information.
• The maximum number of titles that can be recorded
on a DVD-R/RW disc is 99.
• The maximum number of chapters recordable on a
DVD-R/RW disc is 999.
• No more recording is possible on a disc that already
contains the maximum number of chapters/titles.
About HDD recording
Recording to the internal hard disk drive (HDD) is
basically similar to recording to a VR mode DVD-RW disc.
You have the full choice of recording quality options,
including the manual mode, and of course you can
record, erase and re-record as many times as you like.
The capacity of the hard disk drive means that you can
store many hours of video on it, even in the higher quality
recording modes. To help you organize the contents, the
HDD is divided into four groups. You can name and use
these groups as you like—for example, you might have a
group for movies, another for TV shows, and one for
camcorder recordings.
Important
• It is possible to record both PAL and NTSC titles on
the HDD. Before recording, you need to make sure
that the Input Line System setting (page 98) matches
the TV line system of the source you’re recording.
Note
• The maximum number of titles that can be recorded
on the HDD is 250.
• You can record up to 102 hours of video (in EP mode)
on the internal 80GB (gigabyte) hard disk (HDD) on
the DVR-420H/ 520H, or up to 204 hours on the
160GB DVR-720H.
• The maximum number of chapters per title
recordable on the HDD is 99.
• No more recording is possible on the HDD after the
maximum number of titles has been reached.
• The maximum continuous recording time is six
hours.

Recording
Recording time and picture quality
There are four preset recording quality modes:
• FINE – Highest quality setting, gives about one hour
of recording time on a DVD disc.
• SP (Standard Play) – Default quality, sufficient for
most applications, gives about two hours of
recording time on a DVD.
• LP (Long Play) – Slightly lower video quality, but
doubles the recording time on a DVD to around four
hours.
• EP (Extended Play) – Use when maximum recording
time is most important; EP gives you around six
hours of recording time on a DVD disc.
In addition to these settings, you can access 32 different
recording quality/time settings when manual recording
mode is on (see Manual Recording on page 107), giving
you precise control over the recording.
When setting a timer recording there is a further option,
AUTO, which maximizes the recording quality for the
space available on the disc loaded at the time of
recording. (If recording to the HDD, the recording quality
is maximized to fit on to a DVD disc.)
In all except the FINE/MN32 modes, sound is recorded in
two channel Dolby Digital format. When set to FINE/
MN32, sound is recorded in high quality, uncompressed
Linear PCM format.
If the broadcast audio is bilingual and you are recording
in Video mode or to the HDD, or in VR mode on the FINE/
MN32 setting, use the Bilingual Recording setting
(page 104) to select the A/L or B/R audio channel to
record before recording starts.
• Although this recorder can record PAL, SECAM,
NTSC and PAL-60, you can’t mix multiple TV line
systems on one disc. A disc can contain PAL and
SECAM recordings, or NTSC and PAL-60. See also
Input Line System on page 98.
Note
• Note that all recording times (both here and those
shown by the recorder) are only approximate. This is
because of the way that the video is recorded; you
may get slightly more or slightly less, depending on
what you’re recording.

En
Restrictions on video recording
• You cannot record copy-protected video using this
recorder. Copy-protected video includes DVD-Video
discs and some satellite broadcasts. If copyprotected material is encountered during a
recording, recording will pause automatically and an
error message will be displayed on-screen.
• Video that is ‘copy-once only’ can only be recorded on
the HDD or a DVD-RW disc in VR mode (see below).
• When recording a TV broadcast or through an
external input, you can display copy control
information on screen. (see Displaying disc
information on-screen on page 33).
CPRM
CPRM is a copy protection system with scramble system
regarding the recording of ‘copy once’ broadcast
programs. CPRM stands for Content Protection for
Recordable Media.
This recorder is CPRM compatible, which means that
you can record copy-once broadcast programs, but you
cannot then make a copy of those recordings. CPRM
recordings can only be made on CPRM-compatible DVDRW (ver. 1.1 or higher) discs formatted in VR mode or on
the HDD.
DVD CPRM recordings can only be played on players that
are specifically compatible with CPRM.
Recording equipment and copyright
Recording equipment should be used only for lawful
copying and you are advised to check carefully what is
lawful copying in the country in which you are making a
copy. Copying of copyright material such as films or
music is unlawful unless permitted by a legal exception
or consented to by the rightowners.

Setting a timer recording
VR mode
Video mode
HDD
Using the timer recording features you can program up
to 32 timer recordings up to a month in advance. Timer
recording programs can be set to record just once, every
day, or every week.
You can set the recording quality for your timer recording
in the same way as for a regular recording, but with the
added option of an AUTO mode, which maximizes the
recording quality for the space available on the disc (if
recording to DVD), or to fit on to a blank DVD disc (if
recording to HDD).
You can set timer recordings to record to a recordable
DVD or to the hard disk drive. For regular (daily or weekly)
HDD timer recordings that you don’t need to keep, you
can use the Auto Replace Recording feature to
automatically replace the previous timer recording with
the new one. Note that when you use this feature, the
previous recording made on that timer program will be
replaced by the next one, regardless of whether you have
watched it yet or not.
You can also set the recorder so that it will adjust the
recording quality to try and fit the recording on to the disc
if it would not otherwise fit at the recording quality you set
(see Optimized Rec on page 108 for more on this).
Finally, if you set a timer recording to record to DVD but
there isn’t a recordable DVD loaded at the time of the
recording, the Recovery Recording feature will
automatically record the program to the HDD for you.
This recorder is compatible with VPS (Video
Programming System) and PDC (Program Delivery
Control) systems used by many TV stations to ensure that
a timer recording catches the whole program even when
the program is not running to schedule. Up to eight timer
programs can be set with VPS/PDC on.
Important
• A timer recording can’t be set if:
– Auto Start Recording is in progress.
– There are already 32 timer programs waiting to be
recorded.
• Timer recording will not start if:
– The recorder is already recording.
– A disc is being initialized, finalized or unfinalized.
• Timer recording will start when the operation
preventing timer recording has finished.
• If a recordable DVD that doesn’t support
simultaneous playback and recording (see
Simultaneous recording and playback on page 55) is
playing when a DVD timer recording is due to start,
playback will automatically stop to allow the
recording to start.
• The timer indicator ( ) lights in the front panel
display when the timer is active. If the indicator is
blinking it means that (for a DVD timer recording)
there is no disc loaded, or the disc loaded is not
recordable (for an HDD timer recording it means that
the HDD is not recordable).
• Timer recordings have higher priority than the Auto
Start Recording function (see Automatic recording
from a satellite tuner on page 56). A timer recording
will interrupt an Auto Start Recording. (Auto Start
Recording will resume after the timer recording has
finished.)
• Approximately two minutes before a timer recording
is set to start, the recorder will go into timer recording
standby. In timer recording standby you cannot use
some functions.
• The maximum length for timer recordings made to
the HDD is 24 hours. However, because one title is
limited to six hours, recordings over six hours will be
spread over two or more titles. Note that there will be
a break in the recording of a few seconds between
titles.
• VPS/PDC may not work with all broadcast stations in
your country/area. Check with the stations for
compatibility.

This system makes programming timer recordings very
simple. Most TV guides publish PlusCode programming
numbers with their program details. If you want to make
a timer recording of a program, you just input the
corresponding code. The date, start, stop and channel
settings are made automatically. All you have to do is tell
the recorder the recording mode, and whether it’s a
once-only recording or a regular recording.

Preventing use of the recorder before a
timer recording (child lock)
You can make all the front panel and remote control

Simultaneous recording and
playback
VR mode
HDD
A feature called Chase Play makes it possible to watch a
recording in progress (DVD or HDD) from the start of the
recording (as in, playback is ‘chasing’ the recording). For
example, perhaps you have to miss the first 30 minutes of
a movie on TV; you can start recording, then start
watching the movie, from the beginning, while the
recorder is still recording 30 minutes ahead of you.
In fact, you’re not just limited to watching the recording
in progress; you can watch anything else already on the
DVD or HDD by selecting it from the Disc Navigator
screen (see Using the Disc Navigator with recordable
discs and the HDD on page 37).
Important
• Note that you must use a DVD-RW Ver. 1.1 / 2x or
Ver. 1.2 / 4x disc to be able to use this feature.
Timer recording FAQ
Frequently Asked Questions
• Even though the timer is set, the recorder doesn’t start
recording!
Check that the disc loaded or HDD is recordable, not
locked (see Lock Disc on page 92), and that there are
fewer than 99/250 titles already on the DVD/HDD.
• The recorder won’t let me enter a timer program! Why
not?
You can’t enter a timer program if the clock isn’t set.
• What happens when two or more timer programs
overlap?
Basically, the program with the earlier recording start
time has priority. However, the recorder will start
recording the program with the later start time after
the earlier program is finished. If two programs have
the same times (but different channels, for example),
the program set most recently takes priority.
If VPS/PDC is active for two timer programs that are
programmed to start at the same time, then the
program that actually starts first takes priority.
• You may not be able to use this feature with a
DVD-RW disc that was first initialized on another
recorder.
• During recording, press PLAY to start playback
from the beginning of the current recording, or press
DISC NAVIGATOR and select another title to play
from there.
You can use all the usual playback controls, such as
pause, slow-motion play, scan and skip.
• To stop playback, press STOP (recording will

Note
• You can’t start playback immediately after recording
starts.
• When scanning a DVD, no sound is output if the
recorder is also recording the DVD (see Scanning

• You can’t use this feature during Auto Start
Recording, or in Auto Start Recording standby (the
AUTO indicator is lit in the front panel display).
• You can’t use simultaneous playback and recording
while copying or backing up.
• During recording or in timer recording standby, you

If you have a satellite tuner or some other kind of set top
box connected to the AV2/L1 input, you can have the
recorder start and stop recording automatically with the
timer settings of the connected component. (If the other
component doesn’t have a built-in timer, you’ll need to
use it with an external timer unit.)
After setting up for Auto Start Recording, this recorder
starts recording when it detects a signal from the other
component. When the signal ceases, the recorder stops
recording.
Important
• It takes a little while for this recorder to switch on and
start recording after detecting a signal. Please bear
this in mind when setting the timer.
• If Auto Start Recording is set, it will not start if
another timer recording is in progress.
• Timer recordings take precedence over Auto Start
Recording. Auto Start Recording will stop if a timer

manually initialize DVD-RW discs.
You can initialize a disc for either Video mode recording
or VR mode recording.
Important
• Initializing a disc will erase everything recorded on it.
Make sure there is nothing on the disc that you want
to keep!
• You may not be able to re-initialize a disc in a different
format if it was originally initialized on an older DVD
recorder.

Chapter 7
Copying and back-up
that copying can be carried out at the maximum speed
possible.
Introduction
Use the copying features of this recorder to:
• Back up important recordings stored on the HDD to
a DVD
When copying from HDD to DVD, the speed of copying
depends on the recording mode and the kind of DVD disc
you’re using. The table at the bottom of the page shows
the minimum copying time for one hour of material.
• Make a DVD copy of a recording on the HDD to play
in another player.
Note
• Transfer video from a DVD to the HDD for editing.
• Transfer edited video from the HDD to DVD.
The simplest method of copying is to use the One Touch
Copy feature. Using this you can simply copy the title
that’s currently playing from HDD to DVD, or the other
way around.
For more complicated copying tasks you can make a
Copy List which specifies precisely what needs to be
copied. A Copy List is similar to a VR mode Play List in
many ways, and you’ll find that the Copy List commands
are similar to those available for editing a Play List.
• Not all discs are compatible with high-speed copying.
Check with the disc manufacturer for compatibility.
• There may be cases where even 2x/4x/8x compatible
discs do not copy at full speed.
• High-speed copying is not possible when using discs
initialized on another recorder.
• The table below shows disc brands that have been
tested for 8x speed writing compatibility with this
recorder.
Maker
A message showing that copying has finished is
displayed after copying. If the recorder is inactive and no
button is pressed (remote or front panel) then the
recorder will automatically go into standby after 20
minutes.

High-speed copying
Copying between DVD and HDD is a completely digital
process and therefore involves no loss of quality in the
audio or video. This means that you can transfer back
and forth without having to worry about the quality
getting worse with each copy ‘generation’. It also means

Copying and back-up
Real-time copying
Real-time copying is also possible, with the advantage
that you can manually set a different recording mode
from the original. For example, you can record a title
originally recorded in FINE mode in SP mode.
When real-time copying from the HDD to a Video mode
DVD, the chapter markers in the original material are not
copied. Chapter markers are put into the copy at
intervals, according to the Auto Chapter (Video) setting
(see also Auto Chapter (Video) on page 108).
One Touch Copy* (HDD to DVD)
The One Touch Copy feature copies the currently playing
title (or currently selected title in the Disc Navigator) from
the HDD to DVD. The whole title is copied, regardless of
where in the title you start copying. The recorder copies
at the maximum speed possible.
For One Touch Copy to work, make sure that a recordable
DVD-R/RW disc is loaded.
* See also Copyright above.
Frame accuracy and copying
The Frame Accurate setting (see Frame Accurate on
page 108) does not affect the actual video content on the
HDD, but it does affect what can be copied and whether
high-speed copying can be used.
When Frame Accurate is set to Off, high-speed copying
can generally be used to copy titles in the Copy List using
a DVD-R or DVD-RW disc in VR or Video mode. However,
copy-once protected material (see Restrictions on
copying below) can’t be added to the Copy List, and the
divide points in edited titles may be out by as much as 0.5
seconds when compared to the original.
When Frame Accurate is On, you can add copy-once
protected titles to the Copy List and divide points in
edited titles are maintained accurately. However,
depending on the content of the Copy List and the disc, it
may not be possible to use high-speed copying.
Restrictions on copying
Some video material is copy-once protected. This means
that it can be recorded to HDD, but it can’t then be freely
copied again. If you want to transfer copy-once protected
material from HDD to DVD, you’ll need to use a VR mode
DVD-RW disc compatible with CPRM Ver. 1.1 or higher
(see CPRM on page 46 for more on this). Only one
instance of a copy-once protected title can be added to
the Copy List, and after it’s been copied, the title is erased
from the HDD (it is therefore not possible to copy a
locked title that is copy-once protected).
You can identify copy-once protected material during
playback by displaying disc information on-screen. If the
current title is copy-once protected, an exclamation mark
( ! ) is shown (see Play display 2 on page 35).
ONE TOUCH
COPY
HDD
DVD
• During HDD playback, press ONE TOUCH COPY to
copy the current title to DVD.
The front panel display indicates that the title is being
copied. Playback continues while copying.
Note
• Title name, chapter markers, as well as thumbnail
picture markers (Navimark) for the Disc Navigator,
are also copied. However, if you copy to a Video mode
DVD-R/RW, only the first 32 characters of a name are
copied.
• The chapter markers in the copy may not be in exactly
the same positions as the original when recording on
to a Video mode disc.
• You can’t use the One Touch Copy function to copy a
title if any part of the title is copy-once protected.
• A title that contains mixed aspect ratios can’t be
copied to a Video mode disc. Use a VR mode DVDRW disc for this type of material.
• Low resolution (EP or LP, or MN1–18) widescreen
material can’t be copied to a Video mode disc. Use a
VR mode DVD-RW disc for this type of material.
One Touch Copy* (DVD to HDD)
Copyright
Recording equipment should be used only for lawful
copying and you are advised to check carefully what is
lawful copying in the country in which you are making a
copy. Copying of copyright material such as films or
music is unlawful unless permitted by a legal exception
or consented to by the rightowners.
One Touch Copy from DVD to HDD copies a single title to
the HDD in real time. You can copy the currently playing
title or the currently selected title in the Disc Navigator.
When you start copying, playback jumps back to the start
of the title, then continues through to the end of the title,
when recording automatically stops. The copy will be
made in the recording mode (FINE, SP, etc.) that is
currently set.
* See also Copyright above.

You can cancel a One Touch Copy once it’s started.
• Press and hold ONE TOUCH COPY for more than
a second.
Copying is canceled and the video already copied is
erased.
• The maximum title length for copying is six hours.
• Title name and chapter markers are also copied,
except when copying from a finalized Video mode
disc.
Note
• If you cancel a HDD to DVD-R copy, the space
available for recording does not return to the precopy figure.

Chapter Edit (Chpt Edit)
The Chapter Edit option gives you access to several
commands that you can use to edit chapters within a
Copy List title.
Editing chapters in a Copy List title does not change any
actual content on the HDD. It affects only how the
chapters appear after copying.
The following commands are available:
• Erase – Erase individual chapters: Use the ///
(cursor buttons) and ENTER to select a chapter to

Editing
Using the Disc Navigator you can edit video content on unfinalized Video mode and VR mode DVD discs, as well as
video content on the internal hard disk drive (HDD). The editing features available in the Disc Navigator depend on
whether you are editing video on a Video mode or VR mode DVD, or the HDD, and whether you’re editing Original
content, or a Play List.
With unfinalized Video mode DVDs, there are a limited number of editing commands, including naming, locking and
erasing titles. Once a Video mode disc has been finalized, further editing is not possible.
There are two ways to edit VR mode DVD-RW discs. You can directly edit the Original content of the disc, or you can
create and edit a Play List. The Play List doesn’t actually change any of the content on the disc, but just controls how
the content is played back (rather like the program play feature found on CD players).
Editing material recorded on the HDD is similar to editing the Original content of a VR mode DVD-RW, with similar
commands for erasing, naming and locking titles, as well as fine control over the content of chapters within titles.

HDD
The Erase title command does slightly different things
depending on what you are currently editing. If you are
editing Original content on a VR mode disc or content on
the HDD, the title will be erased from the disc and the
available recording time will increase accordingly.
If you erase titles from a Video mode DVD-R disc, the title
will disappear from the list of titles, but the available
recording time will not increase. Erasing a title from a
Video mode DVD-RW disc increases the available
recording time only if it is the last title on the disc.

A Play List is a kind of virtual content based on the actual
(Original) content of the disc. The main advantages of
this type of editing is that it is non-destructive of the video
content on the disc, and it allows greater control over
editing, so that you end up with the content exactly as you
want it.
Remember
• Use the PLAYLIST button to switch to the Play List

Some DVD-Video discs feature a Parental Lock level. If
the recorder is set to a lower level than the disc, it will
require you to enter a password before the disc will play.
This gives you some control about what your children
watch on your DVD recorder.
Some discs also support the Country code feature. The
recorder does not play certain scenes on these discs
depending on the Country code you set.

During playback of a VR mode Play List, you may notice
momentary interruption in the picture at edited points.
The Seamless Playback feature lets you trade-off

When switched On, you may notice that the edit points
are a few frames earlier or later than you set.
Field
Frame
Auto
The recorder uses one of two processes when displaying
a still frame from a DVD disc. The default Auto setting
automatically chooses the best setting each time.
• Field – produces a stable, generally shake-free
image.
• Frame – produces a sharper image, but more prone
to shake than field stills.
Before you can set the Parental Lock level or the Country
code you must set a password. As the password owner
you can change the Parental Lock level or Country code
whenever you like. You can also change the password.
Note
• Not all discs that you may consider inappropriate for
your children use the Parental Lock feature. These
discs will always play without requiring the password
first.
• If you forget the password, you can reset the recorder
to its factory settings (see Resetting the recorder on
page 112), then set a new password.
Parental Lock : Set Password
The password you set will enable you to change the
Parental Lock level and Country code setting. It is also the
password that you will need to enter if you want to play a
disc with a parental lock level higher than the recorder.

Frequently asked questions
In this section you can find answers to frequently asked
questions on how to use your DVD recorder and what it
can do.
high-speed copy). Alternatively, you could copy the
material in SP (or Optimized) so as to fit it all on to one
disc (note that there will be some loss in picture
quality if you do this).
See also Copying and back-up on page 61.
• How do I make a high-quality copy?
We recommend that you use the high-speed copy
mode. Although the copy is faster than real time,
there is no loss of picture or sound quality compared
to the original.
If there is not enough space on the disc to make a
copy at the same picture quality as the original, we
recommend that you change the recording mode to
‘Optimized’. This will fit the recording on to the
available space on the disc.
See also Copying and back-up on page 61.
• Can I make a DVD copy of, say, a movie that has had
the commercials edited out?
Yes. There are two ways to do this. You can either edit
the video on the HDD then copy the edited version to
DVD, or you can assemble a Copy List that cuts out
the commercials, then record that to DVD.
See also Copying and back-up on page 61.
• I have a two-hour recording on the HDD made in FINE
mode. Can I copy this to DVD in high-speed mode?
A standard DVD disc can hold only an hour of FINE
mode material, so you wouldn’t be able to make a

Explanation/Action
• There is no DV input or the input signal is unrecordable.
• Cannot preview because there is no DV input
or the input signal is unrecordable.
No signal was detected at the DV input/output jack. This may
appear if a blank section of DV tape is playing in the connected
camcorder. (Applicable to DVR-520H/720H only.)
• This channel’s TV system is different from the

set for recording was different from the setting of the recorder.
• Playback has stopped because the TV system is
different than the recording.
During recording or timer recording standby, the TV System (PAL,
NTSC, etc.) of the playback video changed, causing playback to
stop automatically.
Handling discs
When holding discs of any type, take care not to leave
fingerprints, dirt or scratches on the disc surface. Hold
the disc by its edge or by the center hole and edge.
Damaged or dirty discs can affect playback and
recording performance. Take care also not to scratch the
label side of the disc. Although not as fragile as the
recorded side, scratches can still result in a disc
becoming unusable.
Should a disc become marked with fingerprints, dust,
etc., clean using a soft, dry cloth, wiping the disc lightly
from the center to the outside edge as shown in the
diagram below.
If necessary, use a cloth soaked in alcohol, or a
commercially available CD/DVD cleaning kit to clean a
disc more thoroughly. Never use benzine, thinner or
other cleaning agents, including products designed for
cleaning vinyl records.
For more detailed care information see the instructions
that come with discs.
Do not load more than one disc into the recorder.
Damaged discs
Discs spin at high speed inside the recorder. If you can
see that a disc is cracked, chipped, warped, or otherwise
damaged, don't risk using it; you could end up damaging
the recorder.
This recorder is designed for use with conventional, fully
circular discs only. Use of shaped discs is not
recommended for this product. Pioneer disclaims all
liability arising in connection with the use of shaped
discs.
Storing discs
Although CDs and DVD discs are more durable than vinyl
records, you should still take care to handle and store
discs correctly. When you're not using a disc, return it to
its case and store upright. Avoid leaving discs in
excessively cold, humid, or hot environments (including
under direct sunlight).
Don't glue paper or put stickers onto the disc, or use a
pencil, ball-point pen or other sharp-tipped writing
instrument. These could all damage the disc.

Cleaning the pickup lens
Moving the recorder
The DVD recorder’s lens should not become dirty in
normal use, but if for some reason it should malfunction
due to dust or dirt, consult your nearest Pioneerauthorized service center. Although lens cleaners for CD
players are commercially available, we do not recommend using them since some may damage the lens.
If you need to move the recorder, first remove the disc, if
there’s one loaded, and close the disc tray. Next, press STANDBY/ON to switch the power to standby, checking
that the POWER OFF indication in the display goes off.
Wait at least two minutes. Lastly, disconnect the power
cord. Never lift or move the unit during playback or
recording—discs rotate at a high speed and may be
damaged.
Condensation
Condensation may form inside the recorder if it is
brought into a warm room from outside, or if the
temperature of the room rises quickly. Although the
condensation won’t damage the recorder, it may
temporarily impair its performance. For this reason you
should leave it to adjust to the warmer temperature for
about an hour before switching on and using.
Hints on installation
An electrical signal that directly represents sound.
Compare this to digital audio which can be an electrical
signal, but is an indirect representation of sound. See
also Digital audio.
Aspect ratio
The width of a TV screen relative to its height.
Conventional TVs are 4:3 (in other words, the screen is
almost square); widescreen models are 16:9 (the screen

Digital audio
Use in a place exposed to high temperatures or
humidity, including near radiators and other heatgenerating appliances.
An indirect representation of sound by numbers. During
recording, the sound is measured at discrete intervals
(44,100 times a second for CD audio) by an analog-todigital converter, generating a stream of numbers. On
playback, a digital-to-analog converter generates an
analog signal based on these numbers. See also
Sampling frequency and Analog audio.
Place on a window sill or other place where the
recorder will be exposed to direct sunlight.
Use in a dusty or damp environment or in a room
where it will be exposed to excessive cigarette smoke.
Place directly on top of an amplifier, or other
component in your stereo system that becomes hot in
use.
Use near a television or monitor as you may
experience interference—especially if the television uses
an indoor antenna.
Use in a kitchen or other room where the recorder
may be exposed to smoke or steam.
Use on a thick rug or carpet, or cover with cloth—this
may prevent proper cooling of the unit.
Place on an unstable surface, or one that is not large
enough to support all four of the unit’s feet.
