damaged. To insert an 8 cm disc, place it according to the inner
groove.

Remove the disc from the cartridge. Align the disc with the grooves
on the disc tray as shown in the illustration and insert with the side
you wish to play back or record facing down. If you insert the disc

10 EN DISC INFORMATION
Care And Handling Of Discs
How to handle discs
When handling a disc, do not
touch the surface of the disc.
Since discs are made of
plastic, they are easily
damaged. If a disc gets dirty,
dusty, scratched or warped, the
images and sound will not be
picked up correctly, and such a
disc may cause the unit to malfunction.
Label side
Do not damage the label side, stick paper to or use any adhesives
on its surface.
Recording side
Make sure that discs are not scratched or dirty on the recording
side before use. Scratches and dirt on the recording side of a disc
may hinder proper playback and recording. Also be careful that a
DVD-RAM disc may get scratched or dirty when removed from
cartridge then put back in after use.
Storage
Make sure that discs are kept in their cases. If discs are piled on
top of one another without their protective cases, they can be
damaged. Do not put discs in a location where they may be
exposed to direct sunlight, or in a place where the humidity or
temperature is high. Avoid leaving discs in your car!
Maintenance of discs
If there are fingerprints or other dirt adhering
to a disc, wipe with a soft dry cloth, moving
from the centre outwards.
If a disc is difficult to clean, wipe with a cloth
moistened with water. Never use record
cleaners, petrol, alcohol or any anti-static
agents.
CAUTION:
Sometimes during playback, noise may appear or images may
be garbled. This is sometimes due to the disc. (It may not be up
to industry standards.)
These symptoms are caused by the discs, not by the
malfunction of the unit.

NOTES:
● ADISC RESUMEB setting works on DVD VIDEO, VCD, SVCD and
already finalised DVD-R/DVD-RW (video mode) discs. For other
types of discs, the function under AONB setting will be applied
even if ARESUMEB is set to ADISC RESUMEB. (A pg. 72)
● If you stop the playback of a disc for which a resume point has
already been memorised, the memory will be updated with the
new resume point.
● After the unit has memorised the resume points for 30 discs,
remembering a new resume point will cause the unit to delete the
oldest memorised point. Stopping playback of a disc for which a
resume point is already stored may change the order in which the
points are stored. This may potentially change the order in which
points are deleted.
● When the unit memorises a resume point for a disc, it also
remembers audio language, subtitle and angle settings.
● This function may not work for some Video CD/SVCDs.
● When ARESUMEB is changed to AONB or AOFFB (A pg. 72),
resume points of the discs memorised with ARESUMEB set to
ADISC RESUMEB will be cleared.
● Resume points are memorised for each side of a double-sided
disc.
● When you switch to HDD during CD playback, playback stops.
The Resume Function doesn’t work when you switch to DVD
thereafter to playback the disc.

Recording Mode
MPEG 2 format is used as recording format. As a guide for picture
quality, the AbpsB unit is used to represent how much data can be
recorded per second. The larger this value is, the better the picture
quality becomes but more capacity is required for the recording.
Select XP or SP for programmes where quick movement occurs,
such as sports programmes, and LP or EP for talk shows, etc. with

Receiving Stereo And Bilingual Programmes
To record the entire programme, the unit automatically sets the
appropriate recording mode depending on the combination of the
total time of the programme to be recorded and either the
remaining disc space or the specified recording time (from
60 minutes to 480 minutes).
Your unit is equipped with a Digital stereo sound decoder (NICAM)
making reception of stereo and bilingual broadcasts possible.
When the channel is changed, the type of broadcast being
received will be displayed on the TV screen for a few seconds.
8 To record the entire programme within the actual
remaining disc space (DVD deck only)
Select AFR (JUST)B in a recording mode selection procedure.
● Note that this function is available only for timer programming
recording (A pg. 47, 49) and dubbing from HDD to DVD
(A pg. 60).

Perform AVIDEO Plus+ Timer ProgrammingB (A pg. 47)

NOTES:
● You can programme this unit to timer record, regardless of the
disc remaining time. When the disc remaining time is not enough,
the unit performs ARelief RecordingB (A pg. 49). To avoid this,
make sure of the disc remaining time before setting timer
programming.
(Example) If you programmed to timer record for 60 minutes in
SP mode on a 120 minute disc, the disc remaining time would be
30 minutes in XP mode, 60 minutes in SP mode, 120 minutes in
LP mode, 180 minutes in EP mode, and 240 minutes in FR480
mode. Timer recording will not complete beyond these remaining
times.
● The maximum recording time of FR (JUST) mode is the same as
the recording time of FR480 mode. When timer programming a
long programme in FR (JUST) mode on a disc whose remaining
time is short, it is recommended to check the disc remaining time
in FR480 mode to see if the remaining time is enough for the
programme.
● Even if more than one programme are timer programmed in FR
(JUST) mode, only the first one is recorded.
● In order to ensure that the recording fits on the disc, this feature
may leave a slight non-recorded section at the end of the disc.
● There may be some noise and sound disturbance at the point on
the disc where the unit switches the mode.

However, for HDD, Live Memory Playback is possible right after
recording has started.
● Although high-speed search up to approximately 30 seconds
before the current recording point is possible during Live Memory
Playback, once the current recording point is reached, the unit
resumes normal playback and maintains a delay of
approximately 30 seconds so that recording and playback can
continue.
● When using Live Memory Playback during timer recording,
playback continues even after the end of the recording.
● When using Live Memory Playback during timer recording,
playback is automatically stopped just before recording starts,
and then recording starts when the time arrives for the next timer
programme.
● It is impossible to perform ITR even if you press R during Live

Now available from some TV stations, PDC (Programme Delivery
Control) and VPS (Video Programme System) are services
designed to assure safe, accurate timer recording. With this
system, special code signals are transmitted together with the
audio/video signals. These code signals control your video unit
and have precedence over the advertised times you may have
preset into the timer. This means that your unit will start and stop
recording when the preset TV programmes actually start and
end^even if the broadcast time of a preset TV programme is
changed from what has been advertised. PDC is currently
available nationally on BBC1, BBC2, Ch.4 and Ch.5, except from a
few small relay transmitters. Ch.3 operates a PDC service in some
areas. All channels intend to offer this service in due course.
Check your TV programme listing guide for latest information. If the
channel you intend to record does not offer a PDC service your
unit will not start recording if PDC has been selected. Be sure to
set PDC to AOFFB if PDC is not available on your selected channel.
(See step 8 on page 47.)
NOTES:
● Make sure to press VPS/PDCj after completing timer
programming procedure to activate the VPS/PDC recording
function. The VPS/PDC recording indicator lights up on the front
display panel when VPS/PDC recording function is activated.
However, it will blink rapidly when VPS/PDCj is pressed under
the following conditions:
● Clock is not set.
● Timer programming has not been set.
● Disc is not loaded.
● HDD is full.
● When you use Manual Timer Programming, set the start time
(VPS or PDC time) exactly as advertised in the TV listing. A
different time than advertised will result in no recording.
● VPS/PDC recording is also possible when a satellite receiver or a
cable system is connected to [L-2 IN/DECODER] connector on
your unit.
● VPS/PDC recording is also possible via the [L-1 IN/OUT]
connector.
● When timer recording via VPS/PDC recording is in progress, it is
not possible to switch between the HDD and DVD deck, and the
following menus cannot be displayed:
● Main Menu
● Library Database Navigation Menu
● Editing Menu
● If the unit is powered on when set to record a timer programme
onto HDD/DVD using VPS/PDC, the PDC information will not be
used. The programme will be recorded using the start and stop
times originally programmed.
How to check if the station being received transmits a VPS/
PDC signal
A Hold down DISPLAY for about 5 seconds. AVPS/PDCB appears
and blinks on the front display panel. If a VPS/PDC signal is
detected from the station, AVPS/PDCB will stop blinking. If no
VPS/PDC signal is detected from the station, AVPS/PDCB will
blink at a slower rate.
B Press DISPLAY again to return to normal display.

and disengages the Automatic Satellite Programme Recording
mode.
● If there are more than one satellite programmes you wish to
record with Automatic Satellite Programme Recording, it is not
possible to set different recording modes for each programme.
● Depending on the type of satellite receiver, the unit may not
record a slight portion of the beginning of the programme or may
record slightly longer than the actual length of the programme.
● If you engage the Automatic Satellite Programme Recording
mode when the satellite receiver’s power is on, the unit will not
start Automatic Satellite Programme Recording even though
ASATjB blinks on the front display panel. When the satellite
receiver shuts off once and is turned back on again, the unit
starts recording.
● You can also record a programme from your cable system in the
same way if the system has a timer.
● Just Clock (A pg. 78) does not work when the Automatic
Satellite Programme Recording mode is engaged.

Play List
It is a collection of the scenes. A play list can be freely edited and
played back without ever changing any original recording data.
Using the random access of a disc (which allows video data to be
instantly read no matter where it is on the disc), a play list includes
information such as the timer counter for the playback start point
and end point, indexes for checking the contents of recorded data,
category information, and more. Playback according to a play list
you have created allows you to enjoy various combinations of
video images from a single title.
