Introduction
Dear Philips customer,
ENGLISH
Instruction manuals are usually very dry since they are technically-oriented and often poorly
translated. I have therefore been employed by Philips to help you.
Allow me to introduce myself.
My name is Phil. I will be guiding you through the instruction manual and helping you get to
know your new DVD recorder. At appropriate points along the way, I will be providing you with
the following information:
Question: (?)
Here I will be explaining
seemingly unimportant
things.
Tip
Here I will be giving you
instructions on functions
that will make it easier for
you to use your DVD
recorder.
Problem
Here I'll help you identify
the cause of a problem and
find a solution.
I hope you have lots of fun.
Phil
P.S. If you have any problems operating the machine, please read the section entitled 'Before you
call an engineer'. If this doesn't help you to resolve the problem, please call the customer
support service for your country.
The telephone numbers and e-mail addresses can be found on the last page of this instruction
manual.
You can also visit the website 'http://www.p4c.philips.com' .
Introduction

Welcome to the growing family of owners of PHILIPS equipment.
Thank you for buying a DVDR 77/00-02 .
Please take the time to read this operating manual before using your DVD recorder. It contains
important information on how to set up and operate the machine.
The DVD recorder should not be turned on immediately after transportation from a
cold to a hot area or vice versa, or in conditions of extreme humidity.
Wait at least three hours after transporting the machine. The DVD recorder needs this time
to acclimatise to its new environment (temperature, relative humidity, etc.).
Your Philips team hopes your
new DVD recorder will bring you
many years of enjoyment.
What is a DVD?
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.
How good is the resolution of DVD compared with VHS?
The razor-sharp digital images have a resolution of more than 500 lines of 720
pixels per line. This is more than twice as high as VHS and is even better than
the laser disc. Its picture quality is easily comparable to the digital masters
produced in recording studios.
What can DVD+RW do?
DVD+ReWritable uses phase change media, the same technology on which
rewritable CDs are based. A high-performance laser is used to change the
reflective properties of the recording layer; this process can be repeated more
than a thousand times.
What can the DVD+R do?
DVD+R (write-once DVD). Unlike a DVD+RW disc, this disc can only be
written to once. If it is not finalised after a recording, further recordings can
be added to it. Old recordings can be deleted but can no longer be
overwritten. The deleted titles are marked 'Deleted title'.
Before this disc can be played in a DVD player, it must be finalised in the
DVD recorder. Once this process is complete, no further recordings can be
added.
What can my DVD recorder do?
Your Philips DVD recorder 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 can be played on other DVD
video players and DVD ROM drives.

Regional code
Since DVD films are not normally released in all parts of the world at the same time, all DVD
players have a specific regional code. Discs can be given a regional code. If the regional codes
differ between the player and the disc, playback is not possible.
DVDs must be marked 'ALL' for all regions or '2' for region 2 to work in this machine. If the
DVD is marked with a different region, it cannot be played in this DVD recorder.
The number within the globe represents the region.
Regional code 2 represents:
Europe, Japan, South Africa, Middle East (incl. Egypt).

ENGLISH
Caution:
Visible and invisible laser radiation. If the cover is open, do not look at the beam.
Because of the risk of eye injuries, only qualified service engineers should open the machine and
carry out maintenance or repair work.
LASER
Type: Semiconductor lasers InGaAlP (DVD), AlGaAs(CD)
Wavelength: 660nm (DVD), 780nm (CD)
Output power (outside the lens): 20mW (DVD+RW write), 0.8mW (DVD read), 0.3mW (CD
read).
Beam divergence: 82 degrees (DVD), 54 degrees (CD)
Danger. High voltage! Do not open.
You run the risk of getting an electric shock.
The machine does not contain any user-serviceable parts. Please leave all maintenance work to
qualified personnel.
There are some components in the DVD recorder that keep running as long as the recorder is
connected to the power supply. To switch off the DVD recorder completely you must unplug it
from the power supply.
If you disconnect the DVD recorder from the mains, make sure to take the plug out of the wall
socket and not just remove the connector from the 4MAINS socket at the back of the unit.
Children could seriously injure themselves at the free, live end of the cable.
These operating instructions have been printed on non-polluting paper.
Please dispose of old batteries safely.
Please take the packaging to your local recycling centre.
This electronic equipment contains a large number of materials that can be recycled. If you are
disposing of an old machine, please take it to a recycling centre.
Introduction
7
When installing the recorder in a cupboard ensure there is a gap of approximately 2.5 cm (1
inch) around the recorder to enable air to circulate freely and prevent overheating.
Make sure that air can circulate freely through the ventilation slots on the machine. The machine
should be placed on a firm surface.
Make sure that no objects or liquids enter the video recorder. Do not place vases or similar on
the DVD recorder. If you spill liquid in the recorder, immediately disconnect it from the power
supply and call after-sales service for advice.
Keep the DVD recorder away from radiators and other heat sources and protect from direct
sunlight.
Do not place any combustible objects on the device (candles, etc.).
Make sure that children do not place any foreign objects in any of the openings.
Cleaning the discs
Some malfunctions (frozen or distorted picture and broken sound for example) are due to dirt
on the disc. To avoid such problems you should clean your discs regularly.
1
Dirty discs should be cleaned with a soft cloth. Always wipe from the
middle to the edge.
2
Do not use any solvents such as benzine, thinners, commercially
available cleaning agents or antistatic sprays designed for vinyl records.
Can I use a CD lens cleaner in the DVD recorder?
This optical unit (laser) of the DVD recorder operates at a higher power level
than the ones in normal DVDs and CD players so CD lens cleaner discs may
actually damage it.
CD lens cleaner discs should therefore not be used.

Picture CD, DVD, or a CD ROM. You can store them on a DVD+RW/+R or on the memory card.
You can create slide shows and play them on a DVD player.
The Type-2 PC Card slot (media slot) allows you to use an ATA Flash Card or other memory
cards using a PC Card adapter.
The DVD recorder is controlled by external devices (receivers, TV sets and so on) via Cinema Link
and is automatically set to the right system settings.
This function automatically transfers all the television channel settings onto your DVD recorder
via the scart cable ( EXT 1 TO TV-I/O socket).
Recordings made on your DVD recorder can be controlled from an external satellite receiver.
At the touch of a button your DVD recorder, even though it is switched off, will check which
channel is currently playing on your television and record it.
This connector is also known as a 'FireWire' or 'IEEE 1394'. This connector is used to transmit
wide digital broadband signals that are used for digital video camcorders. Audio and video signals
are transmitted using a cable. In addition to DV and Hi8 camcorders, PCs with digital video output
can also be connected to the digital input.
This screen tells you what's on the disc. Each index screen represents a recording. On the right
hand side of the screen you can also see a disc indicator that shows the position and length of
the current recording on the disc in a graphic format.
This function enables you to simply delete commercials or other scenes. The relevant scenes are
marked and skipped as required. This information is stored on the DVD in such a way that other
DVD players will skip the scenes.
MP3 files are highly compressed music files. The data is compressed to 1/10 of the volume of the
original audio material using a special process. This means that 10 hours of music can be stored
on a single CD.
These music CDs can be played on this machine.
Normally a recording is made at the current disc position. This is the same as for a video cassette,
in the middle of the tape for example. By holding down the REC/OTR n button, the recording
will be made at the end of all the other recordings to avoid overwriting previous recordings.
New recordings on DVD+R discs are always added after all existing recordings.
Using your DVD recorder you can record from an RGB source such as a satellite receiver using
a SCART input ( EXT 2 AUX-I/O socket). Video signals for the colours R(Red), G(Green) and
B(Blue) are transmitted via separate channels. This reduces the interference that occurs with
standard video cables.

Tip
Connecting your DVD recorder to the TV
set
The necessary cable connections must be made before you can record or playback TV
programmes using your DVD recorder.
Connect the DVD recorder directly to your TV set. If there is a video recorder in between
the picture quality may be poor.
We recommend that you use a scart cable to connect your TV set and DVD recorder.
What is a scart cable?
The scart or Euro AV cable serves as the universal connector for picture,
sound and control signals. With this type of connection, there is practically no
loss of quality in picture or sound transmission.

Connecting additional devices
Connecting additional devices to the
second scart socket
You can connect additional devices such as decoders, satellite receivers, camcorders, etc. to the
EXT 2 AUX-I/O socket. When playback is started on this additional device the DVD recorder
automatically connects the EXT 2 AUX-I/O scart socket with the EXT 1 TO TV-I/O scart
socket. You will then see the picture from the additional device on your TV set, even if the
DVD recorder is switched off.
The TV/DVD button on the remote control allows you to switch between playback through the
EXT 2 AUX-I/O scart socket and playback from the DVD recorder.
The DVD recorder must be connected directly to the TV set ( EXT 1 TO TV-I/O socket
directly to the TV set). If there is a video recorder in between the picture quality may be poor
because of the copy protection system built into the DVD recorder.
Connecting a video recorder, DVD player.
You can connect a video recorder or a DVD player to the EXT 2 AUX-I/O input socket. If you
already have an external receiver (satellite receiver, set-top box, cable TV box) connected to this
socket, you can connect the video recorder to the 'VCR', 'TO VCR', ...socket of the external
receiver.
You can also use the front sockets S-VIDEO , VIDEO and the left AUDIO right audio
sockets.
Please note:
Most prerecorded video cassettes and DVDs are copy-protected. If you try to copy them you
will see the message 'COPY PROT' on the DVD recorder's display.
a When copying video cassettes the display on the DVD recorder
shows 'NO SIGNAL'
b Check that the cable is plugged in firmly.
b If a recording is made from a video recorder, change the tracking on the
video recorder.
b The DVD recorder may not be able to recognise the video input signal if
this signal is poor or does not comply with relevant standards.
a When I copy DVD video discs or prerecorded video cassettes the
picture is fuzzy and the brightness varies
b This happens if you try to copy DVDs or video cassettes that have been
copy-protected. Even though the picture on the TV is fine the recording on
a DVD+RW/+R is faulty. This interference is unavoidable with
copy-protected DVDs or video cassettes.
18
Problem
Connecting additional devices
You can connect external receivers to the EXT 2 AUX-I/O socket.
For additional receivers, you can also use the EXT 1 TO TV-I/O socket (if the TV set is
connected to the COMPONENT VIDEO OUT sockets), and VIDEO , S-VIDEO sockets at
the front. Please observe that you also have to connect an audio cable to the IN AUDIO
L/R or left AUDIO right socket.
1
Connect the scart socket of the receiver (satellite receiver) provided
for the TV set (usually labelled 'TV', 'TO TV'), with the EXT 2
AUX-I/O socket of the DVD recorder.
Why can't I use the 'VCR', 'TO VCR',... socket?
In order to achieve the best possible picture quality, you must use the RGB
(red-green-blue) signal of the receiver. As a rule, this signal is available at the
'TV', 'TO TV',... socket. The DVD recorder transfers the signal to the EXT 1
TO TV-I/O socket.
Some receivers only provide a 'Video (CVBS/FBAS)' signal at the 'VCR', 'TO
VCR'...socket. Read the instruction manual of the receiver on the signals
available at the sockets.
If you are satisfied with the picture quality of the 'VCR', 'TO VCR',... socket,
you can also use this socket.
2
?
If your external receiver offers several options for the signal available
at the 'TV', 'TO TV',... socket, choose the 'RGB' setting.
Connecting additional devices only via
aerial cable
If you want to connect additional devices (e.g. satellite receiver...) only via aerial cable, please
observe the following:
The DVD-Recorder must be connected directly to the TV set. If there is a video recorder or an
additional device in between, the picture quality may be poor because of the copy protection
system built into the DVD-Recorder.
The additional device (satellite receiver) must be connected before the DVD recorder (additional
device - DVD recorder - TV set). Only the TV set must be connected to the TV OUT socket.
•) If there is interference in the picture when the additional device is switched on, a TV
broadcaster may be transmitting on the same channel or a channel very close to that of the
additional device. (e.g.: TV broadcaster on channel 45, additional device (satellite receiver) also
on channel 45). In this case, change the channel of the additional device (satellite receiver).
Consult the instruction manual of the additional device.
You must also store this channel on the DVD recorder to be able to record TV programmes
from the additional device (satellite receiver).
•) Switch on the additional device during the installation of the DVD recorder. During the
automatic channel search, the channel on which the additional device is transmitting will be
stored as a TV channel.

Best picture quality
If you have a DV or Digital 8 camcorder, connect the DV IN input of the DVD recorder to the
appropriate DV output on the camcorder.
When films are transferred the original recording date and time are stored as DVD subtitles.
On playback, this data can be displayed on the TV screen by using the 'E' function (Subtitle).
Choose 'CAM2' as a programme number for this input.
Very good picture quality
If you have a Hi8 or S-VHS(C) camcorder, connect the S-VIDEO input of the DVD recorder to
the appropriate S-VHS output on the camcorder.
You must also connect the audio input left AUDIO right on the DVD recorder to the audio
output on the camcorder.
Choose 'CAM1' as a programme number for this input.
Good picture quality
If you have a camcorder that only has a single video output (Composite Video, CVBS), connect
the VIDEO input on the DVD recorder to the appropriate output on the camcorder.
You must also connect the audio input left AUDIO right on the DVD recorder to the audio
output on the camcorder.
Choose 'CAM1' as a programme number for this input.
Connecting audio devices to the analogue
audio sockets
Two audio output sockets AUDIO L/R OUT are located on the back of the DVD recorder
(audio signal output left/right)
These can be used to connect the following:
•) a receiver with Dolby Surround Pro Logic
•) a receiver with twochannel analogue stereo
Can I use the 'Phono' input on my amplifier?
This socket (input) on the amplifier is designed only for record players
without preamplifiers. Do not use this input for connecting the DVD
recorder.
The DVD recorder or the amplifier may be damaged as a result.
20
?
Connecting additional devices
At the back of the DVD recorder there are two digital audio output sockets OPTICAL
AUDIO OUT for an optical cable and COAX OUT for a coaxial cable (Cinch cable).
These can be used to connect the following:
•) an A/V receiver or an A/V amplifier with a digital multichannel sound decoder
•) a receiver with twochannel digital stereo (PCM)
Connecting additional devices
Digital multichannel sound
Digital multi-channel sound offers the best possible sound quality. You will
need a multi-channel A/V receiver or amplifier that supports at least one of
the audio formats of the DVD recorder (MPEG2, Dolby Digital and DTS).
Consult the operating instructions for your receiver to find out which audio
formats it supports.
?
a All I can hear from my loudspeakers is a loud distorted noise
b The receiver is not compatible with the digital audio format of the DVD
recorder. The audio format of the DVD disc is displayed in the status
window when you switch to another language. Playback in six-channel
digital surround sound is only possible if the receiver has a digital
multi-channel sound decoder.

aerial cable, switch them on. The automatic channel search will recognise it
and save it. Please observe that you must switch on a "test signal" for some
additional devices.
No aerial connected
Even if you only want to use the DVD recorder to play back or have only
connected a satellite receiver, you must still complete the initial installation.
This is necessary so that the basic settings are stored correctly. Once initial

Some TV channels send coded TV signals that can only be viewed properly with a purchased or
rented decoder. You can connect such a decoder (descrambler) to your DVD recorder. The
following function automatically activates the connected decoder for the TV channel you want to
watch.
How do I allocate the decoder for Easy Link?
If your TV set supports 'Easy Link' the decoder must be assigned to the
relevant TV channel on the TV set (see the operating instructions for your TV
set). Settings cannot then be made in this menu.

ENGLISH
Allocating a decoder
Connection using a component video
(Y Pb Pr/YUV) cable
Component video (Y Pb Pr) is the highest quality picture transmission option. This is achieved by
dividing the video signal into a luminance signal (Y) and two colour difference signals - red minus
luminance (V) and blue minus luminance (U). As a rule, "Cr" or "R-Y" is used to describe the red
difference signal and "Cb" or "B-Y" the blue difference signal.
These signals are transmitted through separate lines. The connectors of this cable and the
corresponding sockets are usually green (luminance), blue (Pb, Cb, B-Y), and red (Pr, Cr, R-Y).
If you choose this type of connection, the DVD recorder must already be connected and
completely installed (initial installation complete).
Switching of the signal to the COMPONENT VIDEO OUT sockets is carried out in a menu
that is not yet available during the initial installation.

Warning!
Do not confuse these sockets with the five-component RGB sockets
(if available) or the yellow video (CVBS/FBAS) socket and the two
audio sockets (red/white). The five-component RGB sockets are only
provided for the R-G-B-H-V signals (red, green, blue with horizontal
and vertical synchronisation impulse).
Tip
Manual TV channel search
In some cases, not all of the available TV channels may have been found and stored during initial
installation. In this case, you will need to search for and store the missing or coded TV channels
manually.
Manual search with EasyLink
With 'Easy Link', the DVD recorder will automatically download the TV
channels stored on the TV set. This is why some lines have no function. To
store new TV channels, they must first be stored on the TV set. The
information will then be transferred to the DVD recorder automatically.

The 'Digital Photo Manager'
Using the 'Digital Photo Manager', you can view and modify JPEG pictures from a memory card,
Picture CD, DVD, or a CD ROM. You can store them on a DVD+RW/+R or on the memory
card.
In addition, you can store the pictures in a so-called album in a specific order, yet without
changing the order in which the pictures are stored on the memory card.
Moreover, you can view the pictures in a slide show at adjustable intervals.
Store the slide show on a DVD+RW/+R so you can view them on a DVD player.
How many pictures can be organized from the DVDRecorder?
Since the storage size of a JPEG picture depends on different parameters
(quality, picture information, JPEG compression, resolution of the camera,...)
the limitation is only the available storage capacity.
You can store up to a maximum of 999 photos in one album on a
DVD+RW/+R or memory card.
In case you want to store pictures on a medium that cannot be recorded by
the DVD recorder (Picture CD, CD-ROM, finalised DVD+R, DVD), you can
store up to a maximum of 100 pictures per album in 20 albums. These albums
will be stored in the internal memory with the appropriate disc ID-number.
With this number the allocation to the different disc is possible.
?
Select from the following chapters:
'The PC (PCMCIA) card',
to install or remove the memory card.
'Showing JPEG pictures from a roll' ,
in order to view and modify the pictures and create slide shows from the roll.
'Advanced editing of JPEGpictures,
for advanced editing options such as color, sharpness...
'Creating an album ',
to arrange pictures from different rolls in a definite order and to create a slideshow from the
album.
'Making a 'DVD compatible' slide show',
Make a slide show from the roll/album for viewing on a DVD-player.
'Storing rolls/albums on a DVD+RW/+R' ,
Store your JPEG pictures for archiving on a DVD+RW/+R.
'Changing roll settings' ,
to modify the rolls to your personal preferences.
'Changing album settings' ,

'Changing the media settings',
to modify the storage media (DVD+RW/+R, memory cards) to your personal preferences.
What is the difference between a 'Roll' and 'Albums'?
'Roll'
A folder containing JPEG pictures. It is comparable with a conventional 35mm
film for cameras. Rolls will be created automatically from the digital cameras.
'Albums'
A binary file containing references to the pictures on the rolls. It is
comparable with a conventional photo album that may contain the pictures of
different films (rolls).
You can delete an album without deleting the pictures of the rolls.

Programming a recording (TIMER)
General
Use 'Programming a recording (TIMER)', to automatically start and stop a recording at a later
date.
The DVD recorder will switch to the right programme number and begin recording at the
correct time.
With this DVD recorder, you can pre-programme up to six recordings within a period of one
month.
To make a programmed recording, your DVD recorder needs to know:
* the date you want to make the recording
* the programme number of the TV channel
* the start and stop time of the recording
* VPS or PDC on or off
* the recording mode (picture quality) ('M1/M2/M2x/M3/M4/M6/M8')
Fit to space Recording
You can select also the recording mode 'FR' .
With these setting the recording mode (bit rate) will be automatically
calculated to use the complete empty space (title 'Empty').
If the empty space is too small the recording will be stopped to prevent the
following titles from being overwritten.
Tip
This information is saved in a 'TIMER block'.
Before you begin, make sure the clock is set. If the clock is not set, the 'Time/Date' menu will
appear when you press the TIMER s button.
What is 'VPS/PDC'?
'VPS' (Video Programming System)/'PDC' (Programme Delivery Control) are
used to control the start and duration of TV channel recordings. If a TV
programme starts earlier or ends later than was scheduled, the DVD recorder
will then turn on and off at the correct time.
What do I need to know about 'VPS/PDC'?
• Usually the start time is the same as the VPS or PDC time. If a different
'VPS/PDC time' is indicated, e.g.: '20.15 (VPS/PDC 20.14)', the VPS/PDC time
'20.14' must be entered exactly to the minute during programming.
If you want to programme a time that is different from the VPS or PDC time,
you must switch off VPS or PDC.
• Only one TV program of a TV channel can be controlled using 'VPS/PDC' at a
time. If you want to record two or more TV programmes on a TV channel
using 'VPS/PDC', you will need to programme these as two separate
recordings.
• Since the DVD recorder requires a certain lead time (for getting the disc up to
speed and positioning the laser) before recording can start, it is possible that
the recorder will miss the first few seconds of a TV show recorded with
VPS/PDC.
In this case, disable VPS/PDC and enter a start time one minute earlier.

'Video shift'
Use this feature to adjust the position of the picture on your TV left or right using D , C to
suit your TV set.
With the buttons D , C you can attenuate or amplify the RGB-signal on the input socket EXT
2 AUX-I/O These setting concerns only the input signal. The RGB output signal on the socket
EXT 1 TO TV-I/O leaves unchanged.
'Video output'
Since RGB and S-Video signals sometimes use the same connections on a scart cable, the two
signals cannot be transmitted simultaneously. With these settings, you can decide whether RGB
or S-Video signals should be transmitted. This setting affects only the scart sockets of the DVD
recorder ( EXT 1 TO TV-I/O output socket and EXT 2 AUX-I/O input socket).
Please also observe which signals are available at which scart socket of the TV set or how the
scart sockets need to be switched.
If necessary, consult the instruction manual of your TV set.
Which settings can I select?
'RGB + CVBS' Depending on the TV set you are using, switching between the
'RGB' and the 'Video(CVBS/FBAS)' signal is done automatically.
If the picture scrolls to the side or the colour quality is poor
on some TV sets when the setting is 'RGB + CVBS', you
must select 'CVBS only'.
'S-video only' Both scart sockets ( EXT 1 TO TV-I/O output socket and
EXT 2 AUX-I/O input socket) process only the S-Video signal.
In case the scart socket of the TV set is not suitable for S-Video
(Y/C) signals, you will only see a black-and-white picture,
although the recording will be made in colour.
Moreover, only the video (CVBS, FBAS) signal will be used for
recordings via the EXT 1 TO TV-I/O scart socket.
Please observe that when making recordings from a video
recorder that transmits only video (CVBS/FBAS) signals through
the scart cable, recordings via scart socket EXT 2
AUX-I/O may be made in black and white.
Therefore, use this setting with caution.
'CVBS only' Only the video (CVBS/FBAS) signal is transmitted regardless of
the video signals (RGB, Y/C) on the scart sockets. This setting is
selected automatically when no 'RGB' or 'S-VIDEO' signal is
detected at the scart socket.
When selecting the settings 'S-video only' or 'CVBS only', the RGB signal
is switched off.
