About the internal hard disk drive

The internal hard disk drive (HDD) is a fragile piece of equipment. Please use the recorder following the guidelines below to protect against possible HDD failure.

We recommend that you back up your important recordings onto DVD discs in order to protect against accidental loss.

Do not move the recorder while it is on.

Install and use the recorder on a stable, level surface.

Do not block the rear vent/cooling fan.

Do not use the recorder in excessively hot or humid places, or in places that may be subject to sudden changes in temperature. Sudden changes in temperature can cause condensation to form inside the recorder. This can be a cause of HDD failure.

While the recorder is switched on, do not unplug from the wall socket or switch the electricity off from the breaker switch.

Do not move the recorder immediately after switching it off. If you need to move the recorder, please follow the steps below:

1. After the message POWER OFF is shown in the display, wait at least two minutes.

2. Unplug from the wall socket.

3. Move the recorder.

If there’s a power failure while the recorder is on there is a chance that some data on the HDD will be lost.

The HDD is very delicate. If used improperly or in an unsuitable environment, it is possible that the

HDD will fail after a few years of use. Signs of problems include playback unexpectedly freezing and noticeable block noise (mosaic) in the picture.

However, sometimes there will be no warning signs of HDD failure.

If the HDD fails, no playback of recorded material will be possible. In this case it will be necessary to replace the HDD unit.

Disc-related terms

DVD +R (Double Layer)

Double layer recording technology offers two recordable layers on a single DVD disc, providing nearly double the capacity of 4.7GB single layer

DVDs. The greatest, most valuable benefit of double layer recording technology is increased capacity.

Storage space is nearly doubled with double layer

DVD+R media, allowing consumers to burn up to

8.5GB of video on a single DVD+R disc.

DVD ±R / DVD ±RW

DVD -R and DVD +R are two different standards for recordable DVD drives and discs. This format allows information to be recorded onto the DVD disc only once. DVD +RW and DVD -RW are two standards for re-writable media, meaning the DVD content can be erased and re-recorded. Single-sided discs can hold

4.38 Gigabytes and double-sided discs hold twice as much.

VCD (Video CD)

A VCD holds up to 74 minutes (650 MB disc) or 80 minutes (700 MB disc) of MPEG-1 full-motion video along with quality stereo sound.

MPEG

MPEG is an international standard for video and audio compression. MPEG-1 is used in encoding video for

VCD and provides for multichannel surround sound coding such as PCM, Dolby Digital, DTS and MPEG audio.

MP3

MP3 is a popular compression format used for digital audio files that yields very high near-CD quality.

WMA

Windows media audio file. A type of coding / decoding developed by Microsoft Corp.

JPEG

Joint Pictures Expert Group. JPEG is a compressed file format that allows you to save images with no limit on the number of colors.

DivX

DivX is the name of a revolutionary new video codec which is based on the new MPEG-4 compression standard for video.You will be able to play DivX movies using this recorder.

PBC: Playback Control (Video CD only)

Playback control is available for Video CD (VCD) version 2.0 disc formats. PBC allows you to interact with the system via menus, search functions, or other typical computer-like operations. Moreover, still pictures of high resolution can be played if they are included in the disc. Video CDs not equipped with

PBC (Version 1.1) operate in the same way as audio

CDs.

Title (DVD video discs only)

A title is generally a distinct section of a DVD disc. For example the main feature could be title 1, a documentary describing how the film was made could be title 2, and cast interviews could be title 3. Each title is assigned a reference number enabling you to locate it easily.

Chapter (DVD video discs only)

A chapter is a segment of a title such as a scene in a film or one interview in a series. Each chapter is assigned a chapter number, enabling you to locate the chapter you want. Depending on the disc, chapters may not be recorded.

Scene (VCD)

On a video CD with PBC (playback control) functions, moving pictures and still pictures are divided into sections called “scenes”. Each scene is displayed in the menu screen and assigned a scene number, enabling you to locate the scene you want. A scene is composed of one or several tracks.

Track

A distinct element of audiovisual information, such as the picture or sound track for a specific language

(DVD), or a musical piece on a video or audio CD.

Each track is assigned a track number, enabling you to locate the track you want. DVD discs allow one track of video (with multiple angles) and several tracks of audio.

CD-R physical format should be “ISO 9660” and

“JOLIET”.

DVD±R/RW physical format should be “ISO 9660

(UDF Bridge format)”.

If you record MP3 / WMA files using software that cannot create a file system (eg. Direct-CD) it is impossible to playback MP3 / WMA files. We recommend that you use Easy-CD Creator, which creates an ISO 9660 file system.

File names should have a maximum of 8 letters and must incorporate an .mp3 or .wma extension.

They should not contain special letters such as / ?

* : “ < > l etc.

The total number of files and folders on the disc should be less than 1999.

This recorder requires discs and recordings to meet certain technical standards in order to achieve optimal playback quality. Pre-recorded DVDs are automatically set to these standards. There are many different types of recordable disc formats (including CD-R containing

MP3 or WMA files) and these require certain preexisting conditions (see above) to ensure compatible playback.

Customers should note that permission is required in order to download MP3 / WMA files and music from the Internet. Our company has no right to grant such permission. Permission should always be sought from the copyright owner.

About JPEG image files

JPEG disc compatibility with this recorder is limited as follows:

Depending upon the size and number of JPEG files, it could take a long time for the recorder to read the files. If you don’t see an on-screen display after several minutes, some of the files may be too large

— reduce the resolution of the JPEG files to less than 4M pixels.

The total number of files and folders on the disc should be less than 1999.

Some discs may be incompatible due to a different recording format or the condition of disc.

Ensure that all the selected files have the “.jpg” extensions when copying into the CD layout.

If the files have “.jpe” or “.jpeg” extensions, please rename them as “.jpg” file.

File names without “.jpg” extension will not be able to be read by this recorder. Even though the files are shown as JPEG image files in Windows

Explorer.

Progressive and lossless compression JPEG image files are not supported.

4. Press ENTER.

Simultaneous Music play menu appears.

Recording

About DVD recording

Notes:

This recorder cannot make recordings on CD-R or

CD-RW discs.

Our company takes no responsibility for recording failure due to power outages, defective discs, or damage to the Recorder.

Fingerprints and small scratches on a disc can affect playback and/or recording performance.

Please take proper care of your discs.

Disc types and recording formats, modes, and settings

This recorder can play five different kinds of DVD discs: pre-recorded DVD-Video discs, DVD-RW,

DVD-R, DVD+RW and DVD+R discs. The disc format for DVD-R, DVD+R, DVD+RW discs is always “Video format”—the same as pre-recorded DVD-Video discs.

This means that once finalized, you can play a

DVD-R, DVD+R, or DVD+RW in a regular DVD player.

By default, the DVD-RW disc format is Video

Recording (VR) format, though you can change this to

Video 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 mode, then the recording mode is

Video mode (except for DVD-Video, which is not recordable, and so does not have a recording mode).

Within the recording modes (which are fixed for them whole disc) are the record settings. 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.

About HDD recording

Recording to the internal hard disk drive (HDD) is basically similar to recording to a VR mode DVD-RW disc. You have the full choice of recording quality options, including the manual mode, and of course you can record, erase and re-record as many times as you like. The capacity of the hard disk drive means that you can store many hours of video on it, even in the higher quality recording modes. To help you organize the contents, the HDD is divided into ten genre. You can name and use these genres as you like—for example, you might have a genre for movies, another for TV shows, and one for camcorder recordings.

Note:

The maximum number of titles that can be recorded on the HDD is 255.

Using the HDD allows you to record a maximum of

12 hours continuously.

Notes for recording

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 23 (Disc

Format) 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.

So you must remove the disc after selecting the recorder’s operation mode to DISC mode.

Recording time and picture quality

There are four preset recording quality modes:

HQ

– Highest quality setting, gives about 1 hour of recording time on a DVD (4.7GB).

SQ

– Default quality, sufficient for most applications, gives about 2 hours of recording time on a DVD

(4.7GB).

LQ

– Slightly lower video quality, gives about 4 hour of recording time on a DVD disc (4.7GB).

EQ

– Lowest video quality, gives about 6 hour of recording time on a DVD (4.7GB).

Recording from DV Input

Before DV dubbing

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 tuners and Digital VHS video recorders are not compatible.

You cannot connect more than one DV camcorder at a time to this recorder.

You cannot control this recorder from external equipment connected via the DV IN jack (including two recorders).

It may not always be possible to control the connected camcorder via the DV IN jack.

Digital camcorders can usually record audio as stereo 16-bit/48kHz, or twin stereo tracks of 12bit/32kHz. This recorder can only record one stereo audio track. Set [DV Rec Audio] option to [Audio 1] or [Audio 2] as required (see page 23).

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 the DV cable becomes disconnected.

Recording from a Digital Camcorder

You can record from a digital camcorder connected to the DV IN jack on the front panel of this recorder.

Using the recorder’s remote, you can control both the camcorder and this recorder.

Before recording, make sure that the audio input for the DV IN jack is set up (see page 23).

Tips:

The source signal must be DVC-SD format.

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.

1. Make sure your digital camcorder is connected to the front panel DV IN jack. See page 15.

2. Select [TV(HDD)] or [TV(DVD] option on the

HOME menu then press ENTER. (see page 16).

3. Check that the DV audio input is as you require.

You can choose between Audio 1 (original audio) and Audio 2 (overdubbed audio).

DV Input is set from the [DV Rec Audio] in sub-menu of the Setup menu. See “DV

Recording Audio” on page 23 for more information.

4. Press AV repeatedly to select the DV input.

DV appears in the display window and on the TV screen.

5. Find the place on the camcorder tape that you want to the recording to start from.

For best results, pause playback at the point from which you want to record.

Depending on your camcorder, you can use this recorder’s remote to control the camcorder using the STOP, PLAY and PAUSE functions.

6. Press REC ( z

) once to start recording.

Recording is automatically stopped if the recorder detects no signal.

You can pause or stop the recording by pressing PAUSE/STEP ( X ) or STOP ( x ).

You cannot control the camcorder from this remote control during recording.

In Video mode, the final frame of the recording may remain displayed on screen for a while after recording stops.

For timer recording to work properly on this recorder, the digital camcorder must also be switched on and in operating.

Troubleshooting

If you cannot get a picture and/or audio through the

DV IN jack, check the bullet points:

Make sure the DV cable is properly connected.

Try switching off the connected equipment then switch back on.

Try switching the audio input.

Note:

Depending on the connected camcorder, you may not be able to control it using the remote control supplied with this recorder.

Title List and Chapter List Menu

Overview

Using the Title List menu you can edit video content.

The editing features available in the Title List menu depend on whether you are editing video on DVD, or the HDD, and whether you’re editing Original content, or a Playlist.

There are two ways to edit VR mode DVD-RW discs.

You can directly edit the Original content of the disc, or you can create and edit a Playlist. The Playlist doesn’t actually change any of the content on the disc, but just controls how the content is played back.

Editing material recorded on the HDD is similar to editing the Original content of a VR mode DVD-RW, with similar commands for erasing and naming titles, as well as fine control over the content of chapters within titles for DVD disc.

Note:

HDD, 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.

Caution

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’

Dubbing

Before Dubbing

Use the copying features of this recorder to:

Back up important recordings stored on the HDD to a DVD.

Make a DVD copy of a recording on the HDD to play in another player.

Transfer video from a DVD to the HDD for editing.

Transfer edited video from the HDD to DVD.

The simplest method of copying is to use the One

Touch Copy feature. Using this you can very simply copy the title that’s currently playing from HDD to

DVD, or the other way around.

Note:

If the title’s length is less than 5 seconds, the dubbing is not available. (from HDD to DVD)

Restrictions on copying

Some video material is copy-once protected. This means that it can be recorded to HDD, but it cannot then be freely copied again. If you want to transfer copy-once protected material from HDD to DVD, you’ll need to use a VR mode DVD-RW disc compatible with CPRM Ver. 1.1, and the following restrictions apply:

After copying a copy-once protected title to DVD it is automatically erased from the HDD. It is not therefore possible to copy a locked title that is copy-once protected.

You can identify copy-once protected material during playback by displaying disc information on-screen.

A media in NTSC format cannot be copied.

What is ‘CPRM’?

CPRM is a copy protection system (with scramble system) only allowing the recording of ‘copy once’ broadcast programs. CPRM stands for Content

Protection for Recordable Media.

This Recorder is CPRM compatible, which means that you can record copy-once broadcast programs, but you cannot then make a copy of those recordings.

CPRM recordings can only be made on DVD-RW discs formatted in VR mode, and CPRM recordings can only be played on players that are specifically compatible with CPRM.

It also means that copying can be carried out at the maximum speed possible.

When copying from HDD to DVD, the speed of copying depends on the recording mode and the kind of DVD disc you’re using.
