What is a DVD?
DVD Video (Digital Versatile Disc)
DVD (Digital Versatile Disc) is a storage medium that combines the convenience of the compact disc with the
latest digital video technology. DVD video uses modern MPEG2 data compression technology that enables an
entire feature film to be stored on a single five inch disc.
DVD-R (DVD-Recordable): These discs can only be played back if the recording was made in ‘Video mode‘ and
the recording was finalized.
How good is the resolution of DVD compared with VHS?
The razor-sharp digital images have more than 500 lines of resolution at 720 pixels per line. This is more than
twice as high as VHS and even better than laser disc quality. DVD picture quality is easily comparable to the
digital masters produced in recording studios.
What is a DVD+RW?
DVD-RW (DVD-Rerecordable): These discs can only be played back if the recording was made in ‘Video mode‘
and the recording was finalized.
Audio CD (Compact Disc Digital Audio)
CD-R (CD recordable) Audio/ MP3 files
CD-RW (CD rewritable) Audio/ MP3 files
• Not all recordable CDs may be played by your player.
DVD+ReWritable uses ‘phase change‘ media, the same technology on which rewritable CDs are based. A highperformance laser is used to change the reflective properties of the recording layer; this process can be
repeated more than a thousand times.
Disc-related Terms
What is a DVD+R?
Title (DVD only)
Unlike a DVD+RW disc, a DVD+R (write-once DVD) can only be written to once. If it is not finalized after a
recording, further recordings can be added to it. Old recordings can be deleted but they can no longer be
overwritten. The deleted recordings (titles) are marked 'deleted title'.
The main film, accompanying feature content, or music album. Each title is assigned a title reference number
enabling you to locate it easily.
Before a DVD+R can be played in a DVD player, it must be finalized in the DVD Recorder+VCR. Once this
process is complete, no further recordings can be added.
Sections of a movie or a musical piece that are smaller than titles. A title is composed of one or several
chapters. Each chapter is assigned a number to enable you to easily locate the chapter you want. Depending on
the disc, chapters may not be labeled.
What can I do with my DVD Recorder+VCR?
Your DVD Recorder+VCR is a machine for recording and playing back digital video discs with ‘two-way‘
compatibility with the universal DVD video standard. This means:
• existing DVD video discs can be played on the recorder.
• recordings made on your DVD Recorder+VCR can be played on other DVD video players and DVD-ROM
drives.
Chapter (DVD only)
Track (Audio CD only)
Sections of a movie or a musical piece on an audio CD. Each track is assigned a number, enabling you to easily
locate the track you want.

ALL
If the region number on your DVD disc does not correspond to the region
number of this player, the disc cannot be played.
Which discs you can use
The following discs can be used in your DVD Recorder+VCR:
Playback and recording
• The recording times shown are not exact because the DVD Recorder+VCR 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.
• Discs recorded at high speeds (equal to or greater than 2X) may not be recognized.
• If you record still pictures or audio only, the recording time may be longer.
• The displayed times for recording and time remaining may not always add up to the exact length of the
disc.
• The available recording time may decrease if you heavily edit a disc.
• When using a 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.
Recording TV Audio Channels
DVD+RW (Digital Versatile Disc + ReWritable)
The DVD Recorder+VCR can record one or two channel audio. For TV broadcasts, this usually means mono or
stereo, but some programs are broadcast in bilingual audio channel. You can record either BIL I, BIL II or both.
DVD+R (Digital Versatile Disc + Write-Once)
Restrictions on Video Recording
• You cannot record copy-protected video using this DVD Recorder+VCR. Copy-protected video includes DVD-

your TV using the audio cables.
A digital multi-channel connection provides the best sound quality. For this you need a multi-channel
audio/video receiver that supports one or more of the audio formats supported by your DVD Recorder+VCR
(MPEG 2, Dolby Digital, and DTS). Check the receiver manual and the logos on the front of the receiver.
• Due to the DTS Licensing agreement, the digital output will be in DTS digital out when DTS audio stream is
selected.
• If the audio format of the digital output does not match the capabilities of your receiver, the receiver will produce
a strong, distorted sound or no sound at all.
• 5.1 channel digital surround sound via the digital connection can only be obtained if your receiver is equipped with
a digital multi-channel decoder.
• To see the audio format of the current DVD on the on-screen display, press [AUDIO].
The DVD Recorder+VCR does not perform internal (2- channel) decoding of DTS sound tracks. To enjoy DTS multichannel surround, you must connect the DVD Recorder+VCR to a DTS compatible receiver via one of the DVD
Recorder+VCR’s digital audio outputs.

the programme slightly. The time you enter is the VPS/PDC time so this
must be correct. Not all stations offer VPS/PDC, in which case the player
will start at the time you enter and not the actual start time of the

Recording from an External Input
Recording from External Components
What is DV?
You can record from an external component, such as a camcorder or VCR, connected to any of the DVD
Recorder+VCR’s external inputs.
Using DV, also known as i.LINK, you can connect a DV-equipped camcorder to the DVD Recorder+VCR using a
single DV cable for input and output of audio, video, data and control signals.
The i.LINK interface is also known as IEEE 1394-1995.
‘i.LINK’ and the ‘i.LINK’ logo are trademarks.
• The DVD Recorder+VCR is only compatible with DV-format (DVC-SD) camcorders. Digital satellite tuners
and Digital VHS video recorders are not compatible.
• You cannot connect more than one DV camcorder at a time to the DVD Recorder+VCR.
• You cannot control the DVD Recorder+VCR from external equipment connected via the DV IN jack (including
two DVD Recorders).
• It may not always be possible to control the connected camcorder via the DV IN jack.
• Audio input to the DV IN jack should be 32 or 48kHz (not 44.1kHz).
• Picture disturbance on the recording may occur if the source component pauses playback or plays an
unrecorded section of tape, or if the power fails in the source component, or if the DV cable becomes
disconnected.
1 Make sure the component you want to record from is connected properly to the DVD Recorder+VCR; see pages
15~18.
