CAUTION
You are cautioned that any change or

in this manual could void your
authority to operate this equipment.
Note
This equipment has been tested and
found to comply with the limits for a
Class B digital device, pursuant to Part
15 of the FCC Rules. These limits are
designed to provide reasonable
protection against harmful interference
in a residential installation. This
equipment generates, uses, and can
radiate radio frequency energy and, if
not installed and used in accordance
with the instructions, may cause
harmful interference to radio
communications. However, there is no
guarantee that interference will not
occur in a particular installation. If this
equipment does cause harmful
interference to radio or television
reception, which can be determined by
turning the equipment off and on, the
user is encouraged to try to correct the
interference by one or more of the
following measures:
– Reorient or relocate the receiving
antenna.
– Increase the separation between the
equipment and receiver.
– Connect the equipment into an outlet
on a circuit different from that to
which the receiver is connected.
– Consult the dealer or an experienced
radio/TV technician for help.
Precautions
On safety
Should any solid object or liquid fall
into the cabinet, unplug the recorder
and have it checked by qualified
personnel before operating it any
further.
On power sources
• Operate the recorder only on
120 V AC, 60 Hz.
• The recorder is not disconnected
from the AC power source as long
as it is connected to the wall outlet,
even if the recorder itself has been
turned off.
• Install this system so that the
power cord can be unplugged from
the wall socket immediately in the
event of trouble.
• If you are not going to use the
recorder for a long time, be sure to
disconnect the recorder from the
wall outlet. To disconnect the AC
power cord, grasp the plug itself;
never pull the cord.
On placement
• Place the recorder in a location
with adequate ventilation to
prevent heat build-up in the
recorder.
• If the recorder is brought directly
from a cold to a warm location, or
is placed in a very damp room,
moisture may condense on the
lenses inside the recorder and
cause damage to the video head,
tape, and the optical block. Should
this occur, the recorder may not
operate properly. When you first
install the recorder, or when you
move it from a cold to a warm
location, remove the disc and tape
and leave the recorder turned on
for about three hours before
operating the recorder.
• Do not place the recorder on a soft
surface such as a rug that might
block the ventilation holes.
• Do not place the recorder in a
confined space such as a bookshelf
or similar unit.
• Do not place the recorder in a
location near heat sources, or in a
place subject to direct sunlight,
excessive dust, or mechanical
shock.
• Do not place the recorder in an
inclined position. It is designed to
be operated in a horizontal
position only.
• Keep the recorder, discs, and
cassettes away from equipment
with strong magnets, such as
microwave ovens, or large
loudspeakers.
• Do not place heavy objects on the
recorder.
• To prevent fire or shock hazard, do
not place objects filled with
liquids, such as vases, on the
apparatus.
• When you move the recorder, take
out any discs. If you do not, the
disc may be damaged.
On recording
• Contents of the recording cannot
be compensated for if the
recording or playback is not made
due to a malfunction of the
recorder, disc, etc.
• Make trial recordings before
making the actual recording.
Copyrights
• Television programs, films, video
tapes, discs, and other materials
may be copyrighted. Unauthorized
recording of such material may be
contrary to the provisions of the
copyright laws. Also, use of this
recorder with cable television
transmission may require
authorization from the cable
television transmitter and/or
program owner.
• This product incorporates
copyright protection technology
that is protected by U.S. patents
and other intellectual property
rights. Use of this copyright
protection technology must be
authorized by Macrovision, and is
intended for home and other
limited viewing uses only unless
otherwise authorized by
Macrovision. Reverse engineering
or disassembly is prohibited.
Copy guard function
Since the recorder has a copy guard
function, programs received through
an external tuner (not supplied) may
contain copy protection signals
(copy guard function) and as such
may not be recordable, depending
on the type of signal.
IMPORTANT NOTICE
Caution: This recorder is capable
of holding a still video image or
on-screen display image on your
television screen indefinitely. If
you leave the still video image or
on-screen display image displayed
on your TV for an extended period
of time you risk permanent
damage to your television screen.
Plasma display panels and
projection televisions are
especially susceptible to this.
If you have any questions or
problems concerning your recorder,
please consult your nearest Sony
dealer.

the TV program.
• Confirm the digital broadcast content of the channel
number received before timer recording. If the recorder
receives a digital broadcast without channel number
information, the recorder assigns the channel number
automatically.
Enjoying Digital Broadcasts
You can enjoy digital broadcasts. Digital
broadcasts are better quality, more varied, and
more controllable than analog broadcasts. By
using digital functions such as rating, closed
caption, or audio setting, you can make various
adjustments to enjoy a digital broadcast.
Digital Rating is controlled by the Rating Region
Table (RRT). The RRT is decided by the
broadcaster. This table can be used as parental
ratings. For details, see “Digital Rating” of
“Parental” in “Options” setup (page 103).
Hookups and Settings
To use the digital rating
Notes
• Only the selected audio can be recorded. When
recording with the timer, “Stream 1” is usually
recorded.
• Dolby Digital (5.1ch) signals will be automatically
converted to Downmix (2ch) signal and recorded.
• The HDMI OUT jack cannot output Dolby Digital
signals for digital broadcasts. To hear Dolby Digital,
use the DIGITAL AUDIO OUT jacks.
• HD (High Definition) signal through this recorder is
converted to SD (Standard Definition) signal. You
cannot record in HD (High Definition).
Note
This recorder cannot receive the program guide table,
therefore, you cannot set the rating in advance. But as the
dimension that was set once is memorized, the future
program will be able to refer this setting.
To use digital closed captions
Digital Closed Caption supports programs that
have the caption service. If the support service
number is selected, closed captions appear on
screen. For details, see “Caption Service” in
“Options” setup (page 105).
Note
Digital closed captions cannot be recorded.

Notes on playing DTS soundtracks on a CD
When playing DTS-encoded CDs, excessive noise
will be heard from the analog stereo jacks. To
avoid possible damage to the audio system, the
consumer should take proper precautions when
the analog stereo jacks of the recorder are
connected to an amplification system. To enjoy
DTS Digital Surround™ playback, an external
5.1-channel decoder system must be connected to
the digital jack of the recorder.
Notes on playing DVDs with a DTS soundtrack
DTS audio signals are output only through the
DIGITAL AUDIO OUT (COAXIAL or
OPTICAL)/HDMI OUT jacks.
When you play a DVD with DTS soundtracks, set
“Digital Out” – “DTS” to “On” of “Audio” in the
“Setup” display (page 99).
If you connect the recorder to audio equipment
without a DTS decoder, do not set “DTS” to “On”
in “Audio” setup. A loud noise (or no sound) may
come out from the speakers, which might disturb
your ears or cause damage to the speakers.

About MP3 audio tracks and JPEG
image files
Note
The recorder may not be able to play some DATA CDs
or DATA DVDs created in the Packet Write format.
MP3 audio tracks or JPEG image files that the
recorder can play
The recorder can play the following tracks and
files:
– MP3 (MPEG1 Audio Layer 3) audio tracks.
– MP3 audio tracks with the extension “.MP3.”
– JPEG image files with the extension “.JPEG” or
“.JPG.”
z Hints
• If you add numbers (01, 02, 03, etc.) to the front of the
file names, the files will be played in that order.
• Since a disc with many trees takes longer to start
playback, it is recommended that you create albums
with no more than two trees.
DVD Playback
MP3 is audio compression technology that
satisfies the ISO/IEC MPEG regulations.
JPEG is image compression technology.
You can play back DATA CDs (CD-ROMs/CDRs/CD-RWs) or DATA DVDs (DVD-ROMs/
DVD+RWs/DVD-RWs/DVD+Rs/DVD-Rs)
recorded in MP3 (MPEG1 Audio Layer 3) and
JPEG format.
However, this recorder only plays DATA CDs
whose logical format is ISO9660 Level 1/Level 2
or Joliet, and DATA DVDs of Universal Disk
Format (UDF).
See the instructions supplied with the disc drives
and the recording software (not supplied) for
details on the recording format.
Notes
• Some DATA CDs or DATA DVDs cannot be played
on this recorder depending on file format.
• Only one session of a multi-session DATA DVD can
be played back.
• Only alphabet and numbers can be used for album or
track names. Anything else is displayed as an asterisk.
• The recorder will play any data with the extension
“.MP3,” even if they are not in MP3 format. Playing
such data may generate a loud noise which could
damage your speaker system.
• The recorder does not conform to audio tracks in
MP3PRO format.
• The recorder can recognize up to 499 MP3 audio tracks
within a single album. The recorder may not recognize
some discs depending on the recording device used for
recording or the disc condition.
• The recorder can play MP3 audio tracks recorded in the
following sampling frequencies: 32 kHz, 44.1 kHz,
48 kHz.
• ID3 tags cannot be displayed.
• If you add the extension “.JPG” or “.JPEG” to data not
in JPEG format, a message appears indicating that the
format is not supported.
• Depending on the disc, or the size or total number of
files, playback may take some time to start.
• The recorder can recognize up to 999 JPEG image files
within a single folder. The recorder may not recognize
some discs depending on the recording device used for
recording or the disc condition.
• Progressive and lossless compression JPEG image files
are not supported.
• The image size that the recorder can display is limited
to width 32 - 7680 pixels by height 32 - 8192 pixels.
• JPEG image files that conform to the DCF* image file
format are not supported.

Recording mode and recording time
DVD Recording
The following table is an approximate guide for
the recording time on a single DVD (4.7 GB).
Before Recording
Recording mode
Before you start recording…
HQ (High quality)
• This recorder can record on various disc types.
Select the disc type according to your needs
(page 12).
• Check that the disc has enough available space
for the recording (page 46). For DVD+RWs or
DVD-RWs, you can free up disc space by
erasing titles (page 58).
Notes
• Timer recordings will start with or without the recorder
turned on. The recorder automatically turns off after a
recording has finished.
• This recorder records at ×1 speed.
• This recorder shares a single tuner for both the DVD
recorder and the VCR. You cannot record different
programs to a DVD and a VHS tape at the same time.
Recording mode
Like the SP or EP recording mode of VCRs, this
recorder has eight different recording modes.
Select a recording mode according to the time and
picture quality you need. For example, if picture
quality is your top priority, select “HQ” (high
quality). If recording time is your priority, “SLP”
can be a possible choice.
Press REC MODE repeatedly to switch the
recording modes.
I want to record with the
best possible picture

Approximate
recording time
(minute)
Notes
• When in a recording mode other than HQ, the recorder
compresses the audio/video data before recording.
Since the compression rate needs to decrease for fastmoving images or if picture noise is present, recorded
data size increases, and available recording time
becomes shorter. When recording such pictures, a
recording mode offering longer recording time is
recommended.
• Situations below may cause slight inaccuracies with
the recording time.
– Recording fast-moving or images containing picture
noise.
– Recording a program with poor reception, or a
program or video source of low picture quality
– Recording on a disc that has already been edited
– Recording only a still picture or just sound
• Since the recording mode for recorded titles is
calculated after sampling the recorded data during
playback, it may be displayed differently from the
mode you selected when recording. However, the
actual recording itself is correctly made in the selected
mode.

Recording a stereo/SAP program
Formatting a new disc
The recorder can receive and record stereo/SAP
programs.
When recording a digital channel, only the
selected audio can be recorded. When recording
with the timer, “Stream 1” is usually recorded
(page 35).
New, unformatted discs are automatically
formatted when first inserted in the recorder.
For DVD-RWs/DVD-Rs, you can select a
recording format (VR mode or Video mode)
according to your needs (page 12).
• Unused DVD-RWs are automatically formatted
according to the setting of “Format DVD-RW”
in “Features” setup (page 102).
• Unused DVD-Rs are automatically formatted in
Video mode. To format in VR mode, change the
recording format using the “Disc Setting”
display (page 68).
Stereo programs
When a stereo program is received, the
“STEREO” indicator lights up in the front panel
display. If there is noise in the stereo program,
press AUDIO repeatedly until the “MONO”
appears on the TV screen. The sound will be
recorded in monaural but with less noise.
SAP (Second Audio Program)
When a SAP is received, the “SAP” indicator
lights up in the front panel display. To record only
SAP sound, set “Tuner Audio” of “Audio” to
“SAP” in the “Setup” display (page 99).

DVD Editing
Before Editing
This recorder offers various edit options for
various disc types. Before you edit, check the disc
type in the front panel display, and select the
option available for your disc (page 12).
Notes
• You may lose the edited contents if you remove the disc
or a timer recording starts while editing.
• You cannot edit recordings on DVD-RWs (Video
mode), DVD+R, or DVD-Rs (Video mode) recorded
on other DVD equipment.
+RW
-RWVideo
+R
-RVideo
You can perform simple edits. Since Video mode
titles are actual recordings on the disc, you cannot
undo any edits you make. The edit functions
available for Video mode titles are:
– Renaming a title (page 61).
– Erasing a title (page 58).
– Setting protection against erasure (DVD+RWs
only) (page 58).
– Erasing a section of a title (A-B Erase)
(DVD+RWs only) (page 59).
– Dividing a title (DVD+RWs only) (page 60).
Notes
• Once the disc is finalized, you cannot edit or record on
the disc (except for DVD+RWs).
• If a message appears and indicates that the disc’s
control information is full, erase unnecessary titles.
-RVR
You can enjoy advanced edit functions. First you
have two options for a DVD-RW (VR mode) and
DVD-R (VR mode): editing either the original
recording (called the “original”), or the playback
information created from the original (called a
“Playlist”). Since each is different in nature and
offers different merits, read the following and
select the one that better suits your needs.
To edit original titles
Edits made to the original titles are final. If you
plan to retain an unaltered original recording,
create and edit a Playlist (see below). The edit
functions available for original titles are:
– Renaming a title (page 61).
– Erasing a title (page 58).
– Erasing a chapter (page 59).
– Setting protection against erasure (page 58).
– Erasing a section of a title (A-B Erase) (page 59).
– Dividing a title (page 60).

To create and edit Playlist titles
A Playlist is a group of Playlist titles created from
the original title for editing purposes. When you
create a Playlist, only the control information
necessary for playback, such as the playback
order, is stored on the disc. Since the original titles
are left unaltered, Playlist titles can be re-edited.
If you erase an original title used in a Playlist, that
Playlist is also erased.
Example: You have recorded the final few
matches of a soccer tournament on a DVD-RW
(VR mode). You want to create a digest with the
goal scenes and other highlights, but you also want
to keep the original recording.
,continued
57
In this case, you can compile highlight scenes as a
Playlist title. You can even rearrange the scene
order within the Playlist title. See “Editing a
Playlist” on page 64.
The advanced edit functions available for Playlist
titles are:
– Renaming a title (page 61).
– Erasing a title (page 58).
– Erasing a chapter (page 59).
– Erasing a section of a title (A-B Erase) (page 59).
– Editing a Playlist scene (page 64).
– Dividing a title (page 60).
– Combining titles (page 65).

VCR Recording
Before Recording
Before you start recording…
• This VCR records in VHS format, not S-VHS
format.
• Check that the tape is longer than the recording
time (page 74).
Notes
• Timer recordings will start with or without the recorder
turned on. Once started, the recorder cannot be turned
off. The recorder automatically turns off after a
recording has finished.
• This recorder shares a single tuner for both the DVD
recorder and the VCR. You cannot record different
programs to a DVD and a VHS tape at the same time.
• This recorder has the copy guard function. Programs
that contain a Copy-Never copy guard signal cannot be
correctly recorded on the VCR.
Recording a stereo/SAP program
The recorder can receive and record stereo/SAP
programs.
When recording a digital channel, only the
selected audio can be recorded. When recording
with the timer, “Stream 1” is usually recorded
(page 35).
Stereo programs
When a stereo program is received, the
“STEREO” indicator lights up in the front panel
display. If there is noise in the stereo program,
press AUDIO repeatedly until the “MONO”
appears on the TV screen. The sound will be
recorded in monaural but with less noise.
SAP (Second Audio Program)
To prevent accidental erasure, break off the safety
tab as illustrated. To record on the tape again,
cover the tab hole with adhesive tape.
When a SAP is received, the “SAP” indicator
lights up in the front panel display. To record only
SAP sound, set “Tuner Audio” of “Audio” to
“SAP” in the “Setup” display (page 99).

If you cannot record or edit on a DVD-RW (VR
mode) that has been finalized, unfinalize the disc
by selecting “Unfinalize” in step 6 above.
Notes
• Depending on the condition of the disc, the recording,
or the DVD equipment, discs may not play even if the
discs are finalized.
• The recorder may not be able to finalize a disc if it was
recorded on another recorder.
DV/D8 Dubbing (DV/D8 t DVD)
Before DV/D8 Dubbing
This section explains dubbing with a digital video
camera via the DV IN jack on the front panel. If
you want to dub by way of the LINE IN jacks, see
“Recording From Connected Equipment With a
Timer (Synchro Rec)” on page 53.
To record from the DV IN jack
The DV IN jack on this recorder conforms to the
i.LINK standard. You can connect any other
equipment that has an i.LINK (DV) jack, and
record digital signals.
Follow the instructions in “Connecting a Digital
Video Camera to the DV IN Jack,” and then move
on to the section on dubbing. For more
information about i.LINK, see “About i.LINK” on
page 115.
z Hint
If you plan to do additional editing on a disc after the
initial dub, use the DV IN jack and record on a DVD-RW
(VR mode) or DVD-R (VR mode). Note that erasing
unwanted scenes does not free up disc space for DVD-Rs
(VR mode).
Connecting a Digital Video
Camera to the DV IN Jack
You can connect a digital video camera to the DV
IN jack on the recorder to record or edit from a
DV/D8 format tape. Operation is straightforward
because the DVD recorder will fast forward and
rewind the tape for you – you do not need to
operate your digital video camera. Do the
following to start using the “DV/D8 Edit”
functions of this recorder.
See the instruction manual supplied with the
digital video camera as well before connecting.
Notes
• The DV IN jack is for input only. It will not output
signals.
• You cannot use the DV IN jack when:
– your digital video camera does not work with this
recorder. Connect the camera to the LINE IN jack and
follow the instructions of “Recording From
Connected Equipment Without a Timer” on page 55.
– the input signal is not in DVC-SD format. Do not
connect a MICROMV format digital video camera
even if it has an i.LINK jack.
– the images on the tape contain copy protection
signals, which limit recording.

About i.LINK
The DV IN jack on this recorder is an i.LINKcompliant DV IN jack. This section describes the
i.LINK standard and its features.
What is i.LINK?
i.LINK is a digital serial interface for handling
digital video, digital audio and other data in two
directions between equipment having the i.LINK
jack, and for controlling other equipment.
i.LINK-compatible pieces of equipment can be
connected by a single i.LINK cable. Possible
applications are operations and data transactions
with various digital AV equipment. When two or
more i.LINK-compatible equipment are
connected to this recorder in a daisy chain,
operations and data transactions are possible with
not only the equipment that this recorder is
connected to but also with other devices via the
directly connected equipment.
Note, however, that the method of operation
sometimes varies according to the characteristics
and specifications of the equipment to be
connected, and that operations and data
transactions are sometimes not possible on some
connected equipment.
Note
About the name “i.LINK”
i.LINK is a more familiar term for IEEE 1394 data
transport bus proposed by SONY, and is a
trademark approved by many corporations.
IEEE 1394 is an international standard
standardized by the Institute of Electrical and
Electronics Engineers.
i.LINK’s maximum baud rate varies according to
the equipment. Three maximum baud rates are
defined:
S100 (approx. 100 Mbps*)
S200 (approx. 200 Mbps)
S400 (approx. 400 Mbps)
The baud rate is listed under “Specifications” in
the instruction manual of each equipment. It is
also indicated near the i.LINK jack on some
equipment.
The maximum baud rate of equipment on which it
is not indicated such as this unit is “S100.”
When units are connected to equipment having a
different maximum baud rate, the baud rate
sometimes differs from the indicated baud rate.
* What is Mbps?
Mbps stands for megabits per second, or the amount of
data that can be sent or received in one second. For
example, a baud rate of 100 Mbps means that 100
megabits of data can be sent in one second.
i.LINK functions on this recorder
For details on how to dub when this recorder is
connected to other video equipment having DV
jacks, see page 89.
The DV jack on this recorder can only input DVCSD signals. It cannot output signals. The DV jack
will not accept MICROMV signals from
equipment such as a MICROMV digital video
camera with an i.LINK jack.
For further precautions, see the notes on page 89.
For details on precautions when connecting this
recorder, also see the instruction manuals for the
equipment to be connected.
Required i.LINK cable
Use the Sony i.LINK 4-pin-to-4-pin cable (during
DV/D8 dubbing).
i.LINK and
Additional Information
Normally, only one piece of equipment can be connected
to this recorder by the i.LINK cable (DV connecting
cable). When connecting this recorder to i.LINKcompatible equipment having two or more i.LINK jacks
(DV jacks), see the instruction manual of the equipment
to be connected.

Glossary
Sections of a picture or a music feature that are
smaller than titles. A title is composed of several
chapters. Depending on the disc, no chapters may
be recorded.
A DVD-RW is a recordable and rewritable disc
that is the same size as a DVD VIDEO. The DVDRW has two different modes: VR mode and Video
mode. DVDs created in Video mode have the
same format as a DVD VIDEO, while discs
created in VR (Video Recording) mode allow the
contents to be programmed or edited.
Copy protection signals (page 48)
DVD+R (page 12)
Copy restriction set by copyright owners, etc.
These signals are included in some software or TV
programs and restrict recording on this recorder.
A DVD+R (read “plus R”) is a recordable disc that
is the same size as a DVD VIDEO. Contents can
be recorded only once to a DVD+R, and will have
the same format as a DVD VIDEO.
Chapter (page 41)
Dolby Digital (page 99)
Digital audio compression technology developed
by Dolby Laboratories. This technology conforms
to multi-channel surround sound. The rear channel
is stereo and there is a discrete subwoofer channel
in this format. Dolby Digital provides the same
discrete channels of high quality digital audio
found in “Dolby Digital” theater surround sound
systems. Good channel separation is realized
because all of the channel data is recorded
discretely, and little deterioration occurs because
all channel data processing is digital.
DTS (page 99)
Digital audio compression technology by DTS,
Inc. This technology conforms to multi-channel
surround sound. The rear channel is stereo and
there is a discrete subwoofer channel in this
format. DTS provides the same discrete channels
of high quality digital audio.
Good channel separation is realized because all of
the channel data is recorded discretely, and little
deterioration occurs because all channel data
processing is digital.
DVD+RW (page 12)
A DVD+RW (read “plus RW”) is a recordable and
rewritable disc. DVD+RWs use a recording
format that is comparable to the DVD VIDEO
format.
120
DVD-RW (page 12)
DVD-R (page 12)
A DVD-R is a recordable disc that is the same size
as a DVD VIDEO. Contents can be recorded only
once to a DVD-R. The DVD-R has two different
modes: VR mode and Video mode. DVDs created
in Video mode have the same format as a DVD
VIDEO, while discs created in VR (Video
Recording) mode allow the contents to be
programmed or edited.
DVD VIDEO (page 15)
A disc that contains up to eight hours of moving
pictures on a disc the same diameter as a CD.
The data capacity of a single-layer and singlesided DVD is 4.7 GB (Giga Byte), which is 7
times that of a CD. The data capacity of a doublelayer and single-sided DVD is 8.5 GB, a singlelayer and double-sided DVD is 9.4 GB, and
double-layer and double-sided DVD is 17 GB.
The picture data uses the MPEG 2 format, which
is a worldwide standard of digital compression
technology. The picture data is compressed to
about 1/40 (average) of its original size. The DVD
also uses a variable rate coding technology that
changes the data to be allocated according to the
status of the picture. Audio information is
recorded in a multi-channel format, such as Dolby
Digital, allowing you to enjoy a more real audio
presence.
Furthermore, various advanced functions such as
the multi-angle, multilingual, and Parental
Control functions are provided on the DVD.
HDMI (High-Definition Multimedia Interface)
(page 22)
HDMI is an interface that supports both video and
audio on a single digital connection. The HDMI
connection carries standard to high definition
video signals and multi-channel audio signals to
AV components such as HDMI equipped TVs, in
digital form without degradation.
The HDMI specification supports HDCP (Highbandwidth Digital Contents Protection), a copy
protection technology that incorporates coding
technology for digital video signals.
Track (page 41)
Sections of a music feature on a CD (the length of
a song).
Interlace format
Interlace format shows every other line of an
image as a single “field” and is the standard
method for displaying images on television. The
even number field shows the even numbered lines
of an image, and the odd numbered field shows the
odd numbered lines of an image.
Original (page 57)
Titles actually recorded on a DVD-RW (VR
mode) or DVD-R (VR mode). Erasing original
titles frees up disc space on DVD-RWs.
Playlist (page 57)
Playback information created from the actual
recordings on a DVD-RW (VR mode) or DVD-R
(VR mode). A Playlist leaves the original titles as
they are, and contains only the information needed
to control playback. A Playlist title takes up very
little disc space.
Compared to the Interlace format that alternately
shows every other line of an image (field) to create
one frame, the Progressive format shows the entire
image at once as a single frame. This means that
while the Interlace format can show 30 frames/60
fields in one second, the Progressive format can
show 60 frames in one second. The overall picture
quality increases and still images, text, and
horizontal lines appear sharper.
Additional Information
Progressive format (page 98)
Title (page 41)
The longest section of a picture or music feature
on a DVD, movie, etc., in video software, or the
entire album in audio software.

continuación:

SP: 3 horas y 37 minutos

Grabación de DVD
Esta grabadora dispone de ocho modos de
grabación distintos, al igual que los modos de
grabación SP o EP de las videograbadoras.
Seleccione el modo de grabación en función del
tiempo y la calidad de imagen deseada. Por
ejemplo, si la calidad de la imagen es su principal
prioridad, seleccione el modo “HQ” (alta calidad).
Si su principal prioridad es el tiempo de grabación,
el modo “SLP” puede ser su alternativa.
HSP
Notas
• En modos de grabación distintos a HQ, la grabadora
comprime los datos de audio/video antes de la
grabación. Dado que las escenas de movimientos
rápidos o la existencia de ruido en la imagen requieren
que las tasas de compresión disminuyan, el tamaño de
los datos grabados aumenta y el tiempo de grabación
disponible se acorta. En la grabación de estas
imágenes, se recomienda un modo de grabación que
proporcione un tiempo de grabación más largo.
• Los siguientes casos pueden producir inexactitudes en
el tiempo de grabación.
– Grabación de imágenes con ruido de imagen o
escenas de movimiento rápido.
– Grabación de un programa con recepción defectuosa,
o una fuente de programa o video con imagen de baja
calidad
– Grabación en un disco ya editado
– Grabación de imágenes fijas o sonido únicamente
• Debido a que el modo de grabación de títulos grabados
se calcula después del muestreo de datos grabados
durante la reproducción, es posible que se muestre
diferente del modo que seleccionó durante la
grabación. Sin embargo, la grabación real se realizó
correctamente en el modo seleccionado.
