About HDMI
HDMI (High Definition Multimedia Interface) supports
both video and audio on a single digital connection for
use with DVD Players, Set-Top Boxes, and other AV
devices.
HDMI was developed to provide the technologies of
HDCP (High Definition Contents Protection). HDCP is
used to protect digital content transmitted and received.

Recording
•
The displayed times for recording and time
remaining may not always add up to exactly the
length of the disc.
About DVD recording
•
The recording time available may decrease if you
heavily edit a disc.
•
If using a DVD-RW disc, make sure you change
the recording format (Video mode or VR mode)
before you record anything on the disc. See page
26 (Initialize) for how to do this.
•
When using a DVD-R or DVD+R disc, you can
keep recording until the disc is full, or until you
finalize the disc. Before you start a recording
session, check the amount of recording time left
on the disc.
•
When using a DVD-RW disc in Video mode,
recording time available will only increase if you
erase the last title recorded on the disc.
•
The Delete Title option in the Title List (Original)
menu only hides the title, it does not actually
erase the title from the disc and increase the
recording time available (except for the last
recorded title on a DVD-RW disc in Video mode).
•
Overwrite recording is available using DVD+RW
discs.
•
When using a DVD+R/RW, the recorder will execute the Menu-making operation to update the
new title and editing when removing the disc
from the recorder.
•
The recordable time of MLP mode with DVD+R
DL discs is about 11 hours which is similar to single layer discs, because the resolution of
DVD+R DL disc is higher than that of single layer
disc.
Notes:
• This Recorder cannot record CD-R or CD-RW
discs.
•
•
Fingerprints and small scratches on a disc can
affect playback and/or recording performance.
Please take proper care of your discs.
The company does not hold any responsibility to
compensate the contents which should have
been recorded, and any losses or damages (e.g.
losses of business profit, or business intermission) that may arise from malfunction of this
recorder (not recording/editing as intended).
Disc types and recording formats, modes,
and settings
This recorder can play many different kinds of DVD
discs: pre-recorded DVD-Video discs, DVD-RW,
DVD-R, DVD+RW, DVD+R(DL) and DVD-RAM discs.
The disc format for DVD-R, DVD+R(DL), DVD+RW
discs is always “Video format”—the same as prerecorded DVD-Video discs. This means that once
finalized, you can play a DVD-R, DVD+R (DL), or
DVD+RW in a regular DVD player. The DVD-RAM
disc format is Video Recording (VR) format.
The DVD-RW disc format is Video Recording (VR)
format or Video format. You can change Recording
format, if required. (Reinitializing the disc will erase
the contents of the disc.)
The recording mode is closely related to the disc format. If the disc format is Video Recording format,
then the recording mode is VR mode; if the disc format is Video format, then the recording mode is
Video mode (except for DVD-Video, which is not
recordable, and so does not have a recording mode).
These can be changed as required for each recording and determine the picture quality and how much
space the recording will take up on the disc.
Notes for recording
•
The recording times shown are not exact
because the recorder uses variable bit-rate video
compression. This means that the exact recording time will depend on the material being recorded.
•
When recording a TV broadcast, if the reception
is poor or the picture contains interference, the
recording times may be shorter.
•
36
If you record still pictures or audio only, the
recording time may be longer.
Recording time and picture
quality
There are five preset recording quality modes:
XP – Highest quality setting, gives about
1 hour of recording time on a DVD (4.7GB).
SP – Default quality, sufficient for most applications,
gives about 2 hours of recording time on a DVD (4.7GB).
LP – Slightly lower video quality, gives about 4
hour of recording time on a DVD disc (4.7GB).
EP – Low video quality, gives about 6 hour of
recording time on a DVD (4.7GB).
MLP – The longest recording time with the lowest
video quality, gives you about 11 hours of recording
time on a DVD (4.7GB).
Note:
You may see a fragmented picture during playing

VR Mode: Original and
Playlist Editing
Titles, Chapters and Parts
Titles in the disc’s original content contain one or
more chapters. When you insert a disc’s title into the
Playlist, all the chapters within that title also appear.
In other words, chapters in the Playlist behave exactly as chapters on a DVD-Video disc do. Parts are
sections of Original or Playlist titles. From the Original
and Playlist menu you can add or delete parts.
Adding a chapter or title to the Playlist creates a new
title made up of a section (ie., chapter) of an Original
title. Deleting a part removes part of a title from the
Original or Playlist menu.
Caution:
When editing using the Delete, Add and Move functions, the start and end frames may not be exactly
as set in the start and end point display.
During Playlist playback, you may notice a momentary pause between edits. This is not a malfunction.
Is editing a DVD like editing a video tape?
No. When you edit a video tape you need one video
deck to play the original tape and another to record
the edits. With DVD, you edit by making a ‘Playlist’ of
what to play and when to play it. On playback, the
Recorder plays the disc according to the Playlist.
About word ‘Original’ and ‘Playlist’

Throughout this manual, you will often see the words
Original and Playlist to refer to the actual content and
