Connecting an Antenna
or Cable TV
a Antenna:
Disconnect the antenna from the rear of the TV and
identify the antenna cable. If it is a round 75 ohm
coaxial cable connect it directly to the jack marked
ANT. IN on your Recorder. If your antenna cable is
flat connect it to a 300-ohm to 75-ohm antenna
adaptor (not supplied) and slip the adaptor over the
ANT. IN jack. Don’t attempt to screw it into to the
Recorder.
b Cable TV:
If your cable connection has no converter or
descrambler, unscrew the cable from your TV and
attach it to the ANT. IN jack on the Recorder.
If a converter is required connect a coaxial cable from
the wall jack to the IN connector on the converter,
and a coaxial cable from the OUT connector on the
converter to the ANT. IN on your Recorder. This cable
hookup permits both TV and Recorder operation.

Recording
About DVD recording
Notes for recording
Notes:
• This Recorder cannot record CD-R or CD-RW
discs.
•
The recording times shown are not exact
because the recorder 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.
•
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 exactly the
length of the disc.
•
The recording time available may decrease if you
heavily edit a disc.
•
If using a DVD-RW disc, make sure you change
the recording format (Video mode or VR mode)
before you record anything on the disc. See page
24 (Initialize) for how to do this.
•
When using a DVD-R or 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.
•
When using a DVD-RW disc in Video mode,
recording time available will only increase if you
erase the last title recorded on the disc.
•
The Delete Title option in the Title List (Original)
menu only hides the title, it does not actually
erase the title from the disc and increase the
recording time available (except for the last
recorded title on a DVD-RW disc in Video mode).
•
Overwrite recording is available using DVD+RW
discs.
•
When using a DVD+R/RW, the recorder will execute the Menu-making operation to update the new
title and editing when removing the disc from the
recorder.
•
•
Fingerprints and small scratches on a disc can
affect playback and/or recording performance.
Please take proper care of your discs.
The company does not hold any responsibility to
compensate the contents which should have
been recorded, and any losses or damages (e.g.
losses of business profit, or business intermission) that may arise from malfunction of this
recorder (not recording/editing as intended).
Disc types and recording formats, modes,
and settings
This recorder can play many different kinds of DVD
discs: pre-recorded DVD-Video discs, DVD-RW,
DVD-R, DVD+RW, DVD+R(DL) and DVD-RAM discs.
The disc format for DVD-R, DVD+R(DL), DVD+RW
discs is always “Video format”—the same as prerecorded DVD-Video discs. This means that once
finalized, you can play a DVD-R, DVD+R (DL), or
DVD+RW in a regular DVD player. The DVD-RAM
disc format is Video Recording (VR) format.
The DVD-RW disc format is Video Recording (VR)
format or Video format. You can change Recording
format, if required. (Reinitializing the disc will erase
the contents of the disc.)
The recording mode is closely related to the disc format. If the disc format is Video Recording format,
then the recording mode is VR mode; if the disc format is Video format, then the recording mode is
Video mode (except for DVD-Video, which is not
recordable, and so does not have a recording mode).
These can be changed as required for each recording and determine the picture quality and how much
space the recording will take up on the disc.
36
Follow the instructions below to record a TV program.
Recording starts immediately and continues until the

Recording from DV Input
1. Make sure your digital camcorder is connected to
the front panel DV IN jack. See page 18.
Before DV dubbing
2. Check that the DV audio input is as you require.
You can choose between Audio 1 (original audio)
and Audio 2 (overdubbed audio).
You can connect a DV-equipped camcorder to this
recorder using a single DV cable for input and output
of audio, video, data and control signals.
This recorder is only compatible with DV-format
(DVC-SD, DV25) camcorders. Digital satellite

audio track. Set [DV Record Audio] option to Audio
1 or Audio 2 as required (see page 24).
Audio input to the DV IN jack should be 32 or
48kHz (not 44.1kHz).

the source component pauses playback or plays an
unrecorded section of tape, or if the power fails in
the source component, or the DV cable becomes
disconnected.
Recording from a Digital Camcorder

• Some camcorders cannot be controlled using this
recorder’s remote.
• If you connect a second recorder using a DV
cable, you cannot control the second DVD from
this one.
• You cannot control this unit remotely from a component connected to the DV IN jack.
• You cannot record date and time information from
a DV cassette.

VR Mode: Original and
Playlist Editing
Titles, Chapters and Parts
Titles in the disc’s original content contain one or
more chapters. When you insert a disc’s title into the
Playlist, all the chapters within that title also appear.
In other words, chapters in the Playlist behave exactly as chapters on a DVD-Video disc do. Parts are
sections of Original or Playlist titles. From the Original
and Playlist menu you can add or delete parts.
Adding a chapter or title to the Playlist creates a new
title made up of a section (ie., chapter) of an Original
title. Deleting a part removes part of a title from the
Original or Playlist menu.
Notes:
• When editing using the Delete, Add and Move
functions, the start and end frames may not be
exactly as set in the start and end point display.
•
During Playlist playback, you may notice a
momentary pause between edits. This is not a
malfunction.
Is editing a DVD like editing a video tape?
No. When you edit a video tape you need one video
deck to play the original tape and another to record
the edits. With DVD, you edit by making a ‘Playlist’ of
what to play and when to play it. On playback, the
Recorder plays the disc according to the Playlist.
About word ‘Original’ and ‘Playlist’
-RWVR
RAM
Throughout this manual, you will often see the words
Original and Playlist to refer to the actual content and
the edited version.
Original: content refers to what’s actually recorded
on the disc.
Playlist: content refers to the edited version of the
disc — how the Original content is to be played.
