• This table is intended for a standard new singlesided 12 cm disc. The recording times are estimates
and actual recording time may differ.
• The audio and video quality becomes poorer as the
recording time gets longer.
• Discs recorded in 8H or 10H on this recorder may
not be played back on other DVD recorders or DVD
players.
Video mode and VR (Video Recording) mode
Video mode is the same recording format as used on
the pre-recorded DVD-Videos you purchase in local
shops, so you can play back the discs recorded in this
format in most DVD players. You will need to finalise
such discs (see page 34) before playing them back in
other DVD players. Unless finalised, you can play
back, record additional materials or edit discs
recorded in Video mode with this unit.
VR (Video Recording) mode is a basic recording
format for DVD-RW discs. You can record and edit
material repeatedly. It is impossible to record
additional materials on a disc formatted in VR mode
and already recorded in another video system other
than PAL, such as NTSC.
Restrictions on recording
You cannot record copy-protected video using this
unit. Copy-protected video includes DVD-Videos and
some satellite broadcasts.
If copy-protected material is detected, recording will
pause or stop automatically and an error message
appears on the screen.
You can only record “Copy-once only” video using a
DVD-RW disc in VR mode with Content Protection for
Recordable Media (CPRM).
When recording a TV broadcast or an external input,
you can display copy control information on the
screen.
Note
• The following disc cannot be used for recording in
this unit:
DVD-RW 6x
CPRM is a scrambling copy protection system for the
protection of “copy-once” broadcast programmes.
This unit is CPRM compatible, which means that you
can record copy-once broadcast programmes, but you
cannot then make a copy of those recordings. CPRM
recordings can only be played back on DVD players
that are specifically compatible with CPRM.
DVD players bearing the
logo are capable of
playing back DVD-RW discs recorded in VR mode.

• This unit cannot record on CD-RW or CD-R discs.
• DVD-RW / R and CD-RW / R discs recorded on a
personal computer or a DVD or CD recorder may
not be played back if the disc is damaged or dirty or
if there is condensation on the player’s lens.
• If you record a disc using a personal computer, even
if it is recorded in a compatible format, it may not be
played back because of the settings of the
application software used to create the disc. (Check
with the software publisher for more detailed
information.)
• Discs recorded in Video mode on this unit cannot
record additional information using other DVD
recorders.
• It is not possible to use a DVD-RW disc formatted
with this unit in another DVD recorder unless the
content of the disc was also recorded with this unit.
• Since recording is performed using the Variable Bit
Rate (VBR) method, the actual remaining time for
recording may be a little shorter than the remaining
time displayed on the OSD, depending on the
picture you are recording.

PDC (Programme Delivery
Control)
Recording
To stop the timer recording in
progress
The Programme Delivery Control (PDC) assures that
the TV programmes you have programmed for timer
recording are recorded exactly from beginning to end,
even if the actual broadcasting time differs from the
scheduled time due to a delayed start or extension of
the programme duration. Furthermore, if a
programme is interrupted, the recording will also be
interrupted automatically and resumed when the
programme starts again.
On the front panel of the unit, press
[STOP S] to stop the disc recording or
[STOP / EJECT SO] to stop the tape
recording.
Note
• [STOP S] on the remote control is not effective.
If the PDC signal drops out because the broadcast
signal is weak, or if a broadcasting station does not
transmit a regular PDC signal, the timer recording is
performed in normal mode (without PDC) even if it
was programmed for PDC. If the starting time of the
PDC timer recording is between 0:00 and 3:59 on a
given day, the PDC function will operate from 20:00
on the previous day to 4:00 on the given day. If the
starting time of the PDC timer recording is between
4:00 and 23:59 on a given day, the PDC function will
operate from 0:00 on the day to 4:00 on the given day.
This means that if the relevant programme is
broadcasted within this period, it is recorded correctly.
If the timer is not programmed correctly, the incorrect
timer setting stays in effect unless you cancel it. To
cancel an incorrect timer setting, refer to “Checking,
cancelling, or correcting the timer programming
information” on page 29.
If the timer programming did not
complete correctly
The error number appears on the timer programming
list.

Glossary
Analogue audio
An electrical signal that directly
represents sound. In contrast,
digital audio can also be an
electrical signal, but is an indirect
representation of sound. See also
Digital audio.
Aspect ratio
The width of a TV screen relative to
its height. Conventional TVs are 4:3
(i.e., the screen is almost square).
widescreen models are 16:9 (the
screen is almost twice as wide as its
height).
Chapter
Just as a book is split up into
several chapters, a title on a DVD
disc is usually divided into chapters.
See also Title.
CM SKIP
This unit can skip TV commercials
during DVD Video playback. Once
[CM SKIP] is pressed, the start
point will be set forward 30 seconds
and playback resume automatically.
(You can press [CM SKIP] up to 6
times.)
CPRM
(Content Protection for
Recordable Media)
CPRM is a scrambling copy
protection system for the protection
of “copy-once” broadcast
programmes (e.g. some satellite
broadcasts).
Digital audio
An indirect representation of sound
using numbers. During recording,
the sound is measured at discrete
intervals (44 or 100 times a second
for CD audio) by an analogue-todigital converter, generating a
stream of numbers. On playback, a
digital-to-analogue converter
generates an analogue signal
based on these numbers. See also
Sampling frequency and Analogue
audio.
Dolby Digital
A system developed by Dolby
Laboratories that compresses
digital sound. It works with stereo
(2ch) or multi-channel audio.
DTS
(Digital Theater System)
DTS is a Multi-channel surround
sound system, but it is different from
Dolby Digital. Both formats were
developed by Digital Theater
System, Inc.
Finalise
To make DVDs that have been
recorded playable in DVD players. It
is possible to finalise DVD-R / DVDRW discs with this unit.
JPEG
(Joint Photographic Experts
Group)
JPEG is a method of compressing
still image files. You can copy JPEG
files on CD-RW / R discs from a
computer and play back the files on
this unit.
MP3
(MPEG Audio Layer 3)
MP3 is a method of compressing
files. You can copy MP3 files on CDRW / R discs from a computer and
play back the files on this unit.
PBC (Video CD only)
(Playback Control)
This function enables you to play
back interactive software using a
menu screen. See also Title.
PCM
(Pulse Code Modulation)
PCM is a format that converts audio
into digital data. It is mainly used for
Audio CDs and DAT. This unit can
play back sounds as realistic as
possible by converting even
compressed Dolby Digital and
MPEG audio to PCM.
Playlist
From this list you can play back
contents of a disc in your desired
order or in sequence. It is also
possible to directly search for a
specific scene.
Region code
Regions associate discs and
players with particular areas of the
world. This unit will only play back
discs that have compatible region
codes. You can find the region code
of your unit by looking on the rear
panel. Some discs are compatible
with more than one region (or all
regions).
Sampling frequency
The rate at which sound is
measured by a specified interval to
turn it into digital audio data. The
number of samples in one second is
defined as the sampling frequency.
The higher the rate is, the better the
possible sound quality.
S-Video output
Video is output as the individual
signals of colour(C) and
luminance(Y), so a higher-quality
picture will be displayed.
Title
(DVD)
A collection of chapters on a DVD.
See also chapter.
(Video CD)
The contents of a Video CD. When
playing back a Video CD with the
PBC function, the title menu will
appear automatically.
Track
Audio CDs and Video CDs use
tracks to divide the contents of a
disc. The DVD equivalent is called a
chapter. See also Chapter.
