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. This unit does not support a DVD-R disc with CPRM.

About HDMI
HDMI (High Definition Multimedia Interface) supports both
video and audio on a single digital connection for use with
DVD Players, Set-Top Boxes, and other AV devices.
HDMI was developed to provide the technologies of HDCP
(High Definition Contents Protection). HDCP is used to protect digital content transmitted and received.
10
For best performance, directly connect the HDMI
output to an HDMI input on your TV. If connecting
to some device other than a TV or monitor, such
as a home theater receiver with an HDMI input,
check the following to make sure the HDMI signal
will be received correctly:
- Check the operating instructions of the connected device to make sure that the HDMI
input of the device complies with HDMI-HDCP
specifications.
- Check that the HDMI setup menu of any nondisplay device is set to “pass-through” so that
HDMI signals received are not changed in any
way (such as changing the video or audio format).

Recording
About DVD recording
•
Notes:
• This Recorder cannot record CD-R or CD-RW
discs.
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.
•
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).
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
16 (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 or
DVD+RW disc, recording time available will only
increase if you erase the last title recorded on the
disc.
•
When using a DVD-RW disc in VR mode,
recording time available will increase if you erase
any 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.
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+Rand DVD-RAM 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. 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.
Notes for recording
28
•
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, 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.

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.
1. Press DISC MENU/LIST to display the TITLE
LIST menu.
Playback should be stopped when you do this.
When selecting titles, use the v / V buttons to
display the previous/next page if there are more
than six titles.
If you are editing a VR mode disc, press DISC
MENU/LIST to switch between Original and
Playlist menu.

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.
