Safety precautions
Placement
Set the unit up on an even surface away from direct sunlight, high
temperatures, high humidity, and excessive vibration. These
conditions can damage the cabinet and other components, thereby
shortening the unit’s service life.
Do not place heavy items on the unit.
Voltage
Do not use high voltage power sources. This can overload the unit
and cause a fire.
Do not use a DC power source. Check the source carefully when
setting the unit up on a ship or other place where DC is used.
AC mains lead protection
Ensure the AC mains lead is connected correctly and not
damaged. Poor connection and lead damage can cause fire or
electric shock. Do not pull, bend, or place heavy items on the lead.
Grasp the plug firmly when unplugging the lead. Pulling the AC
mains lead can cause electric shock.
Do not handle the plug with wet hands. This can cause electric
shock.

We recommend using Panasonic discs. We also recommend using DVD-RAM discs with cartridges to protect them from scratches and dirt.
You may not be able to record depending on the condition of the discs and you may not be able to play due to the condition of the recording.
For the recording time, refer to “Recording modes and approximate recording times” on page 17.
You cannot record programmes that allow “One time only recording” to CPRM compatible DVD-R and DVD-RW on this unit. You can record
other programmes as DVD-Video format.
1 You cannot continue a recording from the first layer to the second layer on dual- or double-layer discs. To record onto the second layer, you
must first close the first layer using the “Close First Layer” item in DVD Management (Ô page 37). You will no longer be able to record to the
first layer after you do this (Ô page 16).
When playing a title recorded on both layers, video and audio may momentarily cut out when the unit is switching layers.
2 You may not be able to use +R recorded on this unit in another Panasonic DVD recorder and vice versa. Once the disc is finalized, however,
it can be played in the other unit.
3 The amount of the recordable disc space doesn’t increase even if the programme is deleted when you use a one time recording disc.
4 CPRM (Ô page 49) compatible discs only.
5 This unit can use the high-speed recording discs shown in the chart, but using them will not shorten the recording time.
6 You can play 8x recording speed discs recorded on another equipment.
7 Play on DVD-R DL compatible equipment.
8 Play on +R DL compatible equipment.

Note
• This unit uses variable bit rate (VBR) recording which
varies the amount of data recorded to suit the images, so
actual recording times and remaining recording times
shown by the unit will be different. (The difference will be
especially noticeable with DVD-R DL and +R DL.)
Use a disc with plenty of remaining time to be sure.
• When recording to DVD-RAM using EP ( 8Hours ) mode,
play may not be possible on DVD players that are compatible
with DVD-RAM. In this case use EP ( 6Hours ) mode.
FR (Flexible Recording)
The unit automatically selects a recording rate between XP
and EP ( 8Hours ) that will enable the recordings to fit in the
remaining disc space with the best possible recording quality.
• You can use FR mode in timer recordings (Ô page 20, 21,
step 3) and Flexible Recording (Ô page 19).
Using FR mode is convenient in these kind of
situations

Glossary
Bitstream
This is the digital form of multi-channel audio data (e.g., 5.1 channel)
before it is decoded into its various channels.
Frames and fields
Frames refer to the single images that constitute the video you see
on your television. Each frame consists of two fields.
Component signal outputs the colour difference signals (PB/PR) and
luminance signal (Y) separately in order to achieve high fidelity in
reproducing colours. If the television is compatible with progressive
output, a high quality picture can be output because this unit’s
component video output terminal outputs a progressive output
signal.
CPRM (Content Protection for Recordable Media)
CPRM is technology used to protect broadcasts that are allowed to
be recorded only once. Such broadcasts can be recorded only with
CPRM compatible recorders and discs.
Dolby Digital
=
+
Frame
Field
Field
• A frame still shows two fields, so there may be some blurring, but
picture quality is generally better.
• A field still shows less picture information so it may be rougher, but
there is no blurring.
JPEG (Joint Photographic Experts Group)
This is a method of coding digital signals developed by Dolby
Laboratories. Apart from stereo (2-channel) audio, these signals can
also be multi-channel audio. A large amount of audio information can
be recorded on one disc using this method.
This is a system used for compressing/decoding colour still pictures.
If you select JPEG as the storage system on digital cameras etc.,
the data will be compressed to 1/10–1/100 of its original size. The
feature of JPEG is less deterioration in picture quality considering
the degree of compression.
Down-mixing
MP3 (MPEG Audio Layer 3)
This is the process of remixing the multi-channel audio found on
some discs into two channels for stereo output. It is useful when you
want to listen to the 5.1-channel audio recorded on DVDs through
your television’s speakers. Some discs prohibit down-mixing and this
unit can then only output the front two channels.
DTS (Digital Theater Systems)
This surround system is used in many movie theaters. There is good
separation between the channels, so realistic sound effects are
possible.
Dynamic range
Dynamic range is the difference between the lowest level of sound
that can be heard above the noise of the equipment and the highest
level of sound before distortion occurs. Dynamic range compression
means reducing the gap between the loudest and softest sounds.
This means you can listen at low volumes but still hear dialog clearly.
Film and video
DVD-Videos are recorded using either film or video. This unit can
determine which type has been used, then uses the most suitable
method of progressive output.
Film:
Recorded at 25 frames per second (PAL discs) or 24 frames per
second (NTSC discs). (NTSC discs recorded at 30 frames per
second as well.) Generally appropriate for motion picture films.
Video:
Recorded at 25 frames/50 fields per second (PAL discs) or 30
frames/60 fields per second (NTSC discs). Generally appropriate for
TV drama programmes or animation.
Finalize
A process that makes play of a recorded CD-R, CD-RW, DVD-R etc.
possible on equipment that can play such media. You can finalize
DVD-R, DVD-R DL, DVD-RW (DVD-Video format), +R or +R DL on
this unit.
After finalizing, the disc becomes play-only and you can no longer
record or edit. However, finalized DVD-RW can be formatted to
become recordable.
Formatting
Formatting is the process of making media such as DVD-RAM
recordable on recording equipment.
You can format DVD-RAM, DVD-RW (only as DVD-Video format),
+R, +R DL or +RW on this unit.
When you use a new DVD-RW, +R, +R DL or +RW, it must be
formatted.
Formatting deletes irrevocably all contents.
Troubleshooting guide/Glossary
Component video output
An audio compression method that compresses audio to approximately
one tenth of its size without any considerable loss of audio quality. You
can play MP3 you have recorded onto DVD-R, CD-R and CD-RW.
Pan & Scan/Letterbox
In general, DVD-Video are produced with the intention that they be
viewed on a widescreen television (16:9 aspect ratio), so images
often don’t fit regular (4:3 aspect ratio) televisions. Two styles of
picture, “Pan & Scan” and “Letterbox”, deal with this problem.
Pan & Scan: The sides are cut off so the picture
fills the screen.
Letterbox:
Black bands appear at the top and
bottom of the picture so the picture
itself appears in an aspect ratio of
16:9.
Playback control (PBC)
If a Video CD has playback control, you can select scenes and
information with menus.
(This unit is compatible with version 2.0 and 1.1.)
Progressive/Interlace
The PAL video signal standard has 625 (or 576) interlaced (i) scan
lines, whereas progressive scanning, called 625p (or 576p), uses
twice the number of scan lines. For the NTSC standard, these are
called 525i (or 480i) and 525p (or 480p) respectively.
Using progressive output, you can enjoy the high-resolution video
recorded on media such as DVD-Video.
Your television must be compatible to enjoy progressive video.
Panasonic televisions with 625 (576)/50i · 50p, 525 (480)/60i · 60p
input terminals are progressive compatible.
Protection
You can prevent accidental deletion by setting writing protection or
deletion protection.
RGB
This refers to the three primary colours of light, red (R), green (G),
and blue (B) and also the method of producing video that uses them.
By dividing the video signal into the three colours for transmission,
noise is reduced for even higher quality images.
Sampling frequency
Sampling is the process of converting the heights of sound wave
(analogue signal) samples taken at set periods into digits (digital
encoding). Sampling frequency is the number of samples taken per
second, so larger numbers mean more faithful reproduction of the
original sound.
Thumbnail
This refers to a miniature representation of a picture used to display
multiple pictures in the form of a list.
TIFF (Tag Image File Format)
This is a system used for compressing/decoding colour still pictures.
A common format for storing high quality images on digital cameras
and other devices.
