Connections (without Scart cables)

If you do not have any Scart cables and your TV is not Q Link type, you can connect your DVD Video Recorder to a TV and Satellite Receiver using RF leads.

Using this connection method may however be difficult to obtain a clear picture from the Satellite Receiver. For this reason it is not recommended for inexperienced users. (See preferred connection on page 10.)

Connecting a television with Component video out terminals

These terminals can be used for either interlace or progressive output and provide a purer picture than the S-VIDEO OUT terminal.

Connect to terminals of the same colour.

Component signal outputs the colour difference signals (P

) and luminance signal (Y) separately in order to achieve high fidelity in reproducing colours. If the television is compatible with progressive output, a high quality picture can be output because this unit’s component video output terminal outputs a progressive output signal.

VIDEO Plus+ Codes for Satellite

Receivers/Cable TV

This unit is not designed to control (switch on or change channel) your satellite receiver or Cable TV box, however, it can be taught to recognise VIDEO Plus+ Codes for Satellite stations. The Satellite receiver or Cable TV box must be switched on and the correct station selected. Some receivers have their own timer facility for this purpose. Please refer to your Satellite Receiver/Cable TV box instructions for use of such timer facilities.

For your unit to recognise the VIDEO Plus+ Codes for each satellite station, you must teach your unit which channel or AV input to record from for the first time. Otherwise when setting a VIDEO Plus+ recording, the [ ss

] symbol will appear in the channel position indicating that the unit does not know which channel position to set.

Once you have set the channel/AV input once the unit will remember it whenever you use a VIDEO Plus+ Code for the station again.

Recording RGB Signals

Most Satellite Receivers are capable of outputting RGB signals

(below) for viewing on TV through a Scart terminal (called “TV Scart” on a Sky Digital STB).

In the case of a Sky Digital STB, recording of RGB signals from the

“TV Scart” terminals is possible, but the “Personal Planner” function for timer recording cannot be used in conjunction with the “External

Link” function of this DVD Video Recorder.

To record programmes by RGB signals:

After setting Personal Planner programmes as required, Sky

Digital STB must be left on (not set to standby) to ensure continuous output of RGB signals.

It is not possible to use the “External Link” function of the DVD

Video Recorder for timer recording of RGB signals from the Sky

Digital STB.

RGB

This refers to the three primary colours of light, red (R), green (G), and blue (B) and also the method of producing video that uses them. By dividing the video signal into the three colours for transmission, noise is reduced for even higher quality images. If your TV is equipped with RGB input capability, by connecting with a fully wired 21-pin Scart cable you can see video using RGB output on this unit (PAL only) ( l

10).

To output in RGB select “RGB (without component)” from “AV1

Output” in the SETUP menu ( l

For DVD/VHS COMMON output terminals, both DVD and VHS outputs can be switched.

The DVD output terminals can only output the DVD signal.

Even if “Automatic” is selected in “DVD / VHS Output“ on

“Others” Menu ( l

OUTPUT] on the remote controller to switch manually.

When the Video is switched from DVD to VHS or vice versa, the audio volume may suddenly increase or decrease. This is because when the audio output of this unit is connected to the

TV or other, the audio output of the DVD is generally lower.

When you increase the volume level of the TV or the amplifier to play back DVD audio, reduce it when playback is finished.

Tab

Video cassette care

Poor quality or damaged video cassettes can cause the heads to become dirty and malfunction. Store your video cassettes carefully and discard when they become dirty or damaged.

Never use video cassettes on which juice has been split or those that are extremely damaged since this will not only cause the heads to become dirty, but will also make the unit malfunction.

Maintenance

Cleaning the video heads

Dirt on the video heads can cause poor recording and play.

54

Use an optional head-cleaning cassette (part number NV-TCL30PT). If the problem persists, seek advice from a qualified service person.

Glossary

Bitstream

This is the compressed form of digital signals. A decoder decodes these signals into 5.1 surround and multi-channel signals.

CPRM (Content Protection for Recordable Media)

CPRM is the copy right protection technology that is used to protect broadcasts that are allowed to be recorded only once (e.g. some

CATV broadcasts).

Down-mixing

This is the process of remixing the multi-channel audio found on some discs into two channels for stereo output. It is useful when you want to listen to the 5.1-channel audio recorded on DVDs through your television’s speakers. Some discs prohibit down-mixing and this unit can then only output the front two channels.

Dynamic range

Dynamic range is the difference between the lowest level of sound that can be heard above the noise of the equipment and the highest level of sound before distortion occurs.

Dynamic range compression means reducing the gap between the loudest and softest sounds. This means you can listen at low volumes but still hear dialogue clearly.

Film and video

DVD-Videos are recorded using either film or video. Usually, film is recorded at 24 frames per second, the rate movies are filmed at, while video is recorded at 30 frames per second.

Finalize

This process allows DVD-R to be played on compatible equipment.

Formatting

Formatting is the process of making media such as DVD-RAM recordable on recording equipment.

You can format DVD-RAM on this unit.

Formatting irrevocably erases all recordings on the disc.

Frame and field

Frames are the still pictures that go together to make a moving picture. A frame consists of 2 fields.

Linear PCM (LPCM)

These are uncompressed digital signals. CDs are recorded with 44.1 kHz/16 bit PCM, while DVDs use PCM between 48 kHz/16 bit and 96 kHz/24 bit, allowing playback with greater quality sound.

The linear PCM signals output from the DIGITAL AUDIO OUT,

OPTICAL terminal are stereo (2 channels).

LPCM sound is available when recording in XP mode.

MP3 (MPEG Audio Layer 3)

An audio compression method that compresses audio to approximately one tenth of its size without any considerable loss of audio quality.

Pan & Scan/Letterbox

In general, DVD-Video are produced with the intention to be viewed on a widescreen TV with an aspect ratio of 16:9.

This means you can view most of material with the intended aspect ratio on a widescreen TV.

Material with this ratio will not fit onto a standard TV with an aspect ratio of 4:3. 2 styles of picture, “Pan & Scan” and “Letterbox”, deal with this problem.

Pan & Scan: The sides are cut off so the picture fills the screen.

Letterbox: Black bands appear at the top and bottom of the screen so the picture appears in an aspect ratio of

16:9.

Playback control (PBC)

This is a method of playing Video CDs. You can select parts to play by using menus recorded on the disc.

Protection

You can prevent accidental erasure by setting writing protection or erasure protection.

Sampling frequency

The sampling frequency is the number of times per second an analog signal is measured and converted to a digital signal. In general, the larger the number the greater accuracy of original sound reproduction.

VBR (Variable bitrate)

This is a method of video recording that adjusts the bit rate according to video signal.

A frame still consists of 2 alternating fields, so the picture may appear blurred, but overall quality is high.

A field still is not blurred, but it has only half the information of a frame still so picture quality is lower.

Interlace and progressive output

The PAL video signal standard has 625 (or 576) interlaced (i) scan lines, whereas progressive scanning, called 625p (or 576p), uses twice the number of scan lines. For the NTSC standard, these are called 525i (or 480i) and 525p (or 480p) respectively.

Using progressive output, you can enjoy the high-resolution video recorded on media such as DVD-Video.

Your television must be compatible to enjoy progressive video.

Panasonic television with 625 (576)/50i · 50p, 525 (480)/60i · 60p input terminals are progressive compatible.

PDC (Programme Delivery Control)

Programme Delivery Control adjusts the start and stop time of a timer recording automatically to ensure the recording starts and finishes in line with the programme broadcast. This is useful when a programme over-runs the published times.

The station must be transmitting PDC and the exact time must be set for PDC to work.

The unit detects whether a station is transmitting PDC only during the tuning process.

If PDC is introduced or discontinued by a station you will need to re-tune the unit before it becomes aware of this.

PDC transmissions are not currently nation-wide so please check with your local broadcaster for more information.
