Introduction
Overview of Functions
Video and audio signals from this DVD recorder’s input terminals can be recorded to
DVD-R or DVD-RW (video mode only). (☞ Page 29)
The types of signals that can be used are as follows.
Video: Composite video, YC separate, or DV signals (including audio)
Audio: Analog audio or DV signals (including video)
A wide range of recording methods are supported. The appropriate method is to be
selected in accordance with the intended mode of use.
● The REC, PAUSE, and STOP buttons on the front panel can be used for standard operations. (☞ Page 38)
● Recording operations can be carried out using the REC CONTROL panel. Furthermore, a keyboard can also be used when
recording via this panel. (☞ Page 40)
● Recording can be operated via the external switch that is connected to the foot switch terminal. ( ☞ Page 39)
The title and chapter menus can be created either automatically or manually. (☞ Page 43)
Five different patterns have been provided as display styles for the title and chapter menus. Each of these patterns is characterized
by different thumbnail characteristics (i.e., number, position, and size) and background images displayed on the title and
chapter menu screens.
When a display style is selected during the recording of content to a DVD, this DVD recorder will automatically create the title
and chapter menus in accordance with this style.
The DVD MENU screen can be used to modify the thumbnail and background display characteristics of each of the display
styles.
In addition, the THUMBNAIL EDIT screen and the CHAPTER MENU EDIT screen can be used to modify the display style and
thumbnail images for chapter menus, and also to input chapter names and comments. The input of names or comments is
carried out using a keyboard connected to one of the recorder’s USB terminals.
The TITLE MENU EDIT screen can be used to modify the display style for the title menu and to enter title names.
This DVD recorder can be used to play discs that it has created. (☞ Page 53)
● Once a disc has been finalized, it can also be played on other DVD players.
Precautions for DVD Recorder Use
Storage & Usage Locations
The storage and usage of this DVD recorder in the following
types of location should be avoided.
● Areas at temperatures which deviate by a significant degree
above or below the permitted service temperature range
(i.e., 5°C to 35°C).
● Areas at humidities which deviate by a significant degree
above or below the permitted service humidity range (i.e.,
20% to 80% RH).
● Areas where a large amount of dust or sand is present.
● Areas where the DVD recorder may come into contact with
oily smoke or steam, such as in kitchens or in their
immediate vicinity.
● Areas that are unstable or where significant vibration occurs.
● Areas where condensation occurs readily.
● Areas where strong magnetic fields are generated by
transformers, motors, or the like.
● Areas where transceivers, mobile phones, and other
wireless-communication devices are present.
● Areas that are subjected to X-ray irradiation or where
corrosive gases are present. (This precaution must be
strictly observed.)
Handling
● Ensure that this DVD recorder is placed on a flat, horizontal
surface for use.
● Do not place heavy objects such as a monitor on top of the
DVD recorder.
● Do not insert foreign objects into the disc tray opening.
● Be careful not to get your fingers clamped when loading
the disc to prevent injury.
● Do not block the fan’s ventilation holes.
● Avoid knocking or dropping this DVD recorder.
● When the DVD recorder is to be moved, ensure that any
DVD it contains is removed in advance.
● If the DVD recorder is not to be used for an extended period
of time, please set the POWER switch to OFF to avoid
wasting electricity.
Precautions Regarding Condensation
Condensation
When cold water is poured into a glass and droplets of
water form on its outer surface, this moisture is referred
to as “condensation”.
When condensation occurs
Condensation can cause water droplets to adhere to the
DVD recorder’s internal lens, thus making normal
operation impossible.
Condensation occurs easily in the following situations,
and the appropriate care should be taken.
• When the DVD recorder is moved from a cold location
into a warm room.
• When the room containing the DVD is rapidly heated.
• When an air conditioner’s air duct is pointing straight at
the DVD recorder.
In situations where it is likely that condensation will occur,
remove any DVD that may be present in this DVD recorder
and then turn the power on. As the interior heats up,
condensation will be less likely to occur.
Condensation is a principal cause of the inability to play
discs and other similar problems. In this type of situation,
allow the DVD recorder to remain inactive with its power
on for several hours. If the problem persists after this
period of time has elapsed, contact either the store where
this DVD recorder was purchased or your JVC Authorized
dealer.
Extended Periods of Inactivity
Performance may deteriorate over extended periods of
inactivity; for this reason, the power should be turned on
and the DVD recorder should be operated at regular
intervals.
Cleaning the Exterior (with the power off)
Use a soft cloth when cleaning the outside of this DVD
recorder.
Do not use paint thinners or organic solvents as cleaning
agents.
Failure to observe these precautions can result in discoloration
or melting of exterior surfaces.
When stubborn dirt is present, wipe away using a cloth soaked
in a dilute neutral solvent.
Always use the power cord provided with this DVD
recorder.
The usage of a different type of cord or a damaged cord can
result in the outbreak of fire or electric shocks.
The power cord supplied with this DVD recorder should
not be used with any other device.
Before connecting this DVD recorder to other
devices, turn those devices off and then carry out
setup procedures as described in the
corresponding user’s manuals.
The DVD drive unit is an expendable part. Although the
service life of the DVD drive unit differs depending on
the usage environment of the customer, replacement
every 1000 hours as a guide is recommended. (☞ Page
63 “TOTAL RECORDING TIME”)

Compensation for Damaged Content
JVC accepts no responsibility whatsoever for damages
incurred as a result of an inability to play or record audio
and video content in the rare event that this DVD recorder,
a disc fails to operate correctly.
It is recommended that discs containing important content
be backed up at regular intervals (i.e., on a yearly basis).
Although digital signals do not deteriorate, storage
environments can have an effect on a disc’s aging
characteristics, and this may result in an inability to play
or record.
If a disc should break, there will be no way to recover
data from it.
Proper playback of discs recorded using this DVD recorder
on all devices is not guaranteed.

Introduction
Precautions for Disc Usage
Details Regarding Discs
Care of Discs to Ensure High-Quality Playback
Discs for Recording & Playback
Fingerprints, dust, or any other similar contamination of the surface of a disc can lead to distortion in the playback of recorded
video and audio. For this reason, it is good practice to wipe each disc with a soft cloth before use.
Looking After Discs
● Using a soft cloth, wipe the disc gently from the inside to
the outside.
● If stubborn dirt is present on the surface of a disc, wipe first
using a slightly wet cloth and then using a dry cloth.
● Paint thinners, organic solvents, analog record cleaning
agents, anti-static sprays, and the like must never be used.
Failure to observe this precaution can lead to discs being
permanently damaged.
Additional Notes on Disc Handling
Never wipe a disc using paint thinners, organic solvents,
alcohol, or record-cleaning fluid.
Do not use disc protectors or scratch guards.
Stickers and other types of paper label should not be applied.
Do not use discs from which stickers or labels have been
removed.
Do not use discs on which illustrations or text has been printed
using a commercially-available label printer. First create a disc
using the unit before printing.
The use of non-circular discs (i.e., heart or rectangular
shaped), warped discs, and cracked discs can lead to
breakage of the DVD recorder.
Handling Discs
● Removing a disc
● Placing a disc in its case
The following shows the discs that can be recorded to and played
using this DVD recorder, in addition to the corresponding display
marks or logos.

* Version 1.0 of the DVD-RW Standards does not
support video-mode recording, and for this
reason, the corresponding discs cannot be used.
In terms of recording characteristics, DVD-R and DVD-RW (video
mode) differ as follows.
DVD-R
• Each disc can be recorded only one. Accordingly, these
discs are recommended for use in archiving or long-term
storage.
• Once a disc has been finalized, it can also be played on
other DVD players.
DVD-RW (video mode)
Finalizing
When a DVD-R or a DVD-RW (video mode) has been finalized,
it can be played in the same way as any other DVD using a
standard DVD player. (☞ Page 42)
Recording to unused sections of a disc and the
modification of titles or display styles can be carried
out as required before a disc is finalized.
• In the case of both DVD-Rs and DVD-RWs, it is impossible
to overwrite previously recorded content with new data,
even if the disc in question has not yet been finalized. The
deletion of specific sections of data is also impossible.
• Regardless of whether or not finalization has been carried
out, it will not be possible to use this DVD recorder to
record new content to a DVD-R or DVD-RW that has been
recorded using other devices.
Once a disc has been finalized, it can be used as a
standard DVD and its recorded audio and video can
be played on this and other DVD players.
• After finalizing, a disc’s titles can be selected from the top
menu.
• Additional recording will not be possible after finalizing.
• In the case of a DVD-RW, it is possible to cancel the
finalization and add a recording.
• Although a finalized disc may in principle be played on
other DVD players, certain characteristics of the disc and
its recording conditions may make this impossible.
Playing Discs on this DVD recorder
This DVD recorder is capable of playing any discs that it has
created and finalized.
● The following conditions may occur when attempting to
play discs recorded using other devices on this DVD
recorder.
• Inability to play

Details Regarding Discs (continued)
DVD Data Configuration
Region Codes
Generally speaking, the content recorded on a DVD is separated
into large units referred to as “titles”. A unique number called a
“title number” is assigned to each of these titles, and as a result,
any title can be immediately accessed using its title number. In
addition, each title can be divided into smaller units referred to
as “chapters”. Similarly, a unique number called a “chapter
number” is assigned to each of these chapters, and this allows
any chapter to be immediately accessed using its chapter
number.
Each recording made to a disc is stored as a single title. In this,
each pressing of the STOP button to leave Recording mode
constitutes a different recording. (This action is also referred to
as “title closing”.)
It is also possible to insert chapter marks to partition titles at the
desired points by pressing the REC button while recording. It is
possible to automatically add a chapter mark when recording is
temporarily stopped by pressing the PAUSE button. (Set from
the menu.) In addition, this DVD recorder can also be used to
automatically insert chapter marks at regular intervals.
(CHAPTER CREATION menu settings will be required for this
function.)

One of six numbers referred to as “region codes” is assigned to
DVD content to control the global regions in which this content
may be viewed. If a DVD’s region code does not correspond to
the region code of the DVD player being used, it will not be
possible to play the disc.
● This DVD recorder assigns the region code “ALL” to the discs
that it records.

DVD Recording
Preparing a Disc for Recording
DVD recording is carried out using the following procedure.
Pre-Recording Settings
Preparation of the DVD-R or DVDRW (video mode only).
● Insert a new DVD-R or DVD-RW (video mode) or alternatively, a similar disc that has
been recorded on using the DVD recorder.
● If the recording on a DVD-RW is to be performed once again from the beginning, erase
the disc’s data using ERASE from the DISC MENU screen. (☞ Page 28)
On-screen settings
Use the setting screens to select the appropriate recording signal, setup the recording
conditions, and make other necessary settings. (☞ Page 29)
Adjustment of audio recording levels.
Audio recording levels can be adjusted in one of two different ways. (☞ Page 32)
Selection of styles for the title and
chapter menus
The title and chapter menus are used during playback of a disc to select the section of
the disc to be viewed. A total of five different display styles have been made available for
these menus, and these can be selected using the DVD MENU screen. In addition, the
DVD recorder also allows you to freely modify these display styles.
(☞ Page 35)
This DVD recorder is capable of recording to DVD-R and DVD-RW (in video mode).
DVD-R
: Only discs that conform with DVD-R Standard 2.0 (video mode) can be used.
DVD-RW : Discs of Version 1.1 or later can be used.
Although Version 1.1 of DVD-RW standards allows the selection of video mode and VR mode for recording, this
DVD recorder performs recording in video mode only.
* Version 1.0 of the DVD-RW standards does not support video-mode recording, and for this reason, the corresponding
discs cannot be used.
In terms of recording characteristics, DVD-R and DVD-RW (video mode) differ as follows.
DVD-R
: Each disc can be recorded only once. Erasing of data and re-recording are not possible.
DVD-RW (video mode)
: After viewing a disc, all data can be erased and it can be used to record new content.
The condition of the disc being used will dictate the available recording options as follows.

● The section between the start of recording using the REC and PLAY buttons
and the end of recording using the STOP button constitutes a single recording
title, and each title is assigned a unique number.
A single disc can contain up to 99 different titles.
● Each title can be separated into a number of different chapters by inserting
chapter marks at the appropriate points. Unique numbers are also assigned
to chapters, and a single title can contain up to 99 different chapters.
● Adding chapters
If the REC button is pressed while recording, chapter mark and index will be
inserted.
In addition, CHAPTER CREATION from the RECORDER MENU (1/2) screen
can also be used to setup the automatic or manual insertion of chapter marks
and indexes.
When the INDEX CREATION item on the RECORDER MENU (2/2) screen is
set to AUTO, indexes will be inserted automatically together with chapters at
the record start point and recording pause point.
● Thumbnails (i.e., the frame at the start of recording) and backgrounds are
automatically created for the title and chapter menus using the style selected
using STYLE from the DVD MENU screen.
If EDIT MENU from the DVD MENU screen is set to ENABLE before the start
of recording, it will be possible to modify the chapter menu’s style and
thumbnails and to insert chapter names and comments whenever recording
is stopped (i.e., whenever title closing is performed).
● Once title closing has been carried out, it will not be possible to modify the
chapter menu.
● The REC CONTROL panel can be used to perform recording operations with
a keyboard. (REC CONTROL from the REMOTE MENU screen must be set
to ON.)
● If EDIT MENU from the DVD MENU screen is set to ENABLE, it will be possible
to modify the title menu’s style and to input title names when the disc is being
finalized.

Selecting Styles for Title & Chapter Menu
Title & Chapter Menus
This DVD recorder can automatically create title and chapter menus in response to recording operations and can save these to the
disc being recorded.
When the disc is subsequently played, these title and chapter menus can be used to access specific sections of stored video and
audio.
● When recording is stopped using the STOP button or a similar action (i.e., disc closing), a title number and a thumbnail
(corresponding to the frame at the start of recording) will be created to form part of the disc’s title menu. A single disc can contain
up to 99 different titles.
● Similarly, if a chapter mark is inserted during recording, a chapter number and a thumbnail (corresponding to the frame at the
chapter mark) will be created to form part of the title’s chapter menu. Chapter marks are used as targets for skipping during
playback. Each title can contain up to 99 chapters. In addition, indexes will be inserted together with chapters. (Please see page
56 for details on indexes.)

Start of recording
Each recorded DVD contains title and chapter menus that provide information relating to its titles and chapters.
Whenever recording is carried out, title numbers, chapter numbers, and thumbnails are automatically generated in order to create
the title and chapter menus.
Specifically, the frames from the start of individual recordings are used as thumbnails for the title menu.
In a similar way, the frames at which chapter marks have been inserted are used as thumbnails for chapter menus. (These thumbnails
may be modified later on.) The title menu will become the top thumbnail of the chapter menu.
The term “style” is used to refer to a combination of thumbnail characteristics for the title and chapter menus. This DVD recorder can
store eight different style types, and the DVD MENU screen is used to indicate which of these types is to be used.

Recording with the Front Panel
Recording with the Front Panel (continued)
This DVD recorder recording operations can be carried out in two different ways — namely, using the buttons provided on the front
panel and using the on-screen REC CONTROL panel. In the latter case, furthermore, recording operations can be performed using
a keyboard. The following section, however, will provide a description of recording using the front panel buttons.
On a DVD, the section of video recorded between the start of recording and pressing of the STOP button to end recording is stored
as a single title, and a unique title number is assigned to each of these sections. A single disc can contain up to 99 different titles.
In addition, each title can be separated into a number of different chapters by inserting chapter marks at the appropriate points, and
each title can contain up to 99 chapters.
Information relating to titles and chapters is stored on a disc in the form of title and chapter menus. When the disc is being played,
therefore, the title and chapter menus can be used to access specific sections of stored video and audio.
Note
When recording is stopped or a title is
closed, the state of progress will be
indicated on-screen using a progress bar.

: The frames at the start of individual recordings are used as thumbnails. As a result, a title’s thumbnail is
the same as that of its first chapter.
● Display style
: Menus are created using the style set using the DVD MENU screen. (Styles determine factors such as
thumbnail positioning and background)
After chapter menus have been created in this way, it will be possible to modify thumbnails and styles, or to insert new names and
comments.
In specific terms, the editing of chapter menus is carried out using the THUMBNAIL EDIT screen that appears when recording of a
title is ended.

For transmitters rated at a maximum output power not listed above, the recommended separation distance d in meters (m)
can be estimated using the equation applicable to the frequency of the transmitter, where P is the maximum output power
rating of the transmitter in watt (W) according to the transmitter manufacturer.
NOTE 1 At 80 MHz and 800 MHz, the separation distance for the higher frequency range applies.
NOTE 2 These guidelines may not apply in all situations. Electromagnetic propagation is affected by absorption and
reflection from structures, objects and people.
Interference may occur in the vicinity of equipment marked with the following symbol:
NOTE 1 At 80 MHz and 800 MHz, the higher frequency range applies.

a
Field strengths from fixed transmitters, such as base stations for radio (cellular/cordless) telephones and land mobile radios,
amateur radio, AM and FM radio broadcast and TV broadcast cannot be predicted theoretically with accuracy. To assess the
electromagnetic environment due to fixed RF transmitters, an electromagnetic site survey should be considered. If the measured field strength in the location in which the Model BD-X201ME is used exceeds the applicable RF compliance level above,
the Model BD-X201ME should be observed to verify normal operation. If abnormal performance is observed, additional
measures may be necessary, such as re-orienting or relocating the Model BD-X201ME.
b
Over the frequency range 150 kHz to 80 MHz, field strengths should be less than 3 V/m.
