2. Retain instructions. Keep the safety and operating instructions for future reference.
3. Heed warnings. Adhere to all warnings on the product and
in the operating instructions.

5. Cleaning – Unplug this product from the wall outlet before
cleaning. Do not use liquid cleaners or aerosol cleaners. Use
a damp cloth for cleaning.
6. Attachments – Do not use attachments not recommended
by the product manufacturer as they may cause hazards.
7. Water and Moisture – Do not use this product near water for example, near a bathtub, washbowl, kitchen sink, or
laundry tub, in a wet basement, near a swimming pool, etc.
8. Accessories – Do not place this product on an unstable cart,
stand, tripod, bracket, or table. The product may fall, causing
serious injury to a child or adult, and serious damage to the
product. Use only with a cart, stand, tripod, bracket, or
table recommended by the manufacturer or sold with the
product. Any mounting of the product should follow the
manufacturer’s instructions and should use a mounting
accessory recommended by the manufacturer.
9. Move a product and cart combination with care. Quick
stops, excessive force, and uneven surfaces may
cause the product and cart combination to overturn.
10. Ventilation – Slots and openings in the cabinet provide ventilation, ensure reliable operation of the product, and protect
it from overheating. Do not block or cover these openings.
The openings should never be blocked by placing the product on a bed, sofa, rug, or other similar surface. Do not
place this product in a built-in installation such as a bookcase
or rack unless proper ventilation is provided or the manufacturer’s instructions have been adhered to.
11. Power Sources – This product should be operated only
from the type of power source indicated on the marking
label. If you are not sure of the type of power supply to
your home, consult your product dealer or local power
company. For products intended to operate from battery
power, or other sources, refer to the operating instructions.
12. Grounding or Polarization – This product may be equipped
with a polarized alternating-current line plug (a plug having
one blade wider than the other). This plug will fit into the
power outlet only one way. This is a safety feature. If you
are unable to insert the plug fully into the outlet, try reversing the plug. If the plug still fails to fit, contact your electrician to replace your obsolete outlet. Do not defeat the safety purpose of the polarized plug.
13. Power-Cord Protection – Route power supply cords so
they are not likely to be walked on or pinched by items
placed upon or against them, paying particular attention to
cords at plugs, convenience receptacles, and the point where
they exit from the product.
14. Outdoor Antenna Grounding – If an outside antenna or
cable system is connected to the product, be sure the
antenna or cable system is grounded so as to provide some
protection against voltage surges and built-up static charges.
Article 810 of the National Electrical Code, ANSI/NFPA 70,
provides information with regard to proper grounding of the
mast and supporting structure, grounding of the lead-in wire
to an antenna discharge unit, size of grounding conductors,
location of antenna-discharge unit, connection to grounding
electrodes, and requirements for the grounding electrode.
See figure at right.
15. Lightning – For added protection for this product during a
lightning storm, or when it is left unattended and unused for
long periods of time, unplug it from the wall outlet and disconnect the antenna or cable system. This will prevent damage to the product due to lightning and power-line surges.
16. Power Lines – An outside antenna system should not be
located in the vicinity of overhead power lines or other
electric light or power circuits, or where it can fall into such
power lines or circuits. When installing an outside antenna
system, take extreme care to keep it from touching such
power lines or circuits; contact with them might be fatal.
17. Overloading – Do not overload wall outlets, extension
cords, or integral convenience receptacles. This can result in
a risk of fire or electric shock.
18. Object and Liquid Entry – Never push objects of any kind
into this product through openings; they may touch dangerous voltage points or short out parts, resulting in a fire or
electric shock. Never spill liquid of any kind on the product.
19. Servicing – Do not attempt to service this product yourself.
Opening or removing covers may expose you to dangerous
voltage or other hazards. Refer all servicing to qualified service personnel.
20. Damage Requiring Service – Unplug this product from the
wall outlet and refer servicing to qualified service personnel
under the following conditions:
a) When the power supply cord or plug is damaged,
b) If liquid has spilled or objects have fallen into the product,
c) If the product has been exposed to rain or water,
d) If the product does not operate normally by following the
operating instructions. Adjust only those controls covered
by the operating instructions. An improper adjustment of
other controls may result in damage and will often require
extensive work by a qualified technician to restore the product to its normal operation,
e) If the product has been dropped or damaged in any way,
f) When the product exhibits a distinct change in performance. This indicates a need for service.
21. Replacement Parts – When replacement parts are required,
be sure the service technician uses replacement parts specified by the manufacturer or having the same characteristics
as the original part. Unauthorized substitutions may result in
fire, electric shock, or other hazards.
22. Safety Check – Upon completion of any service or repairs
to this product, ask the service technician to perform safety
checks to determine that the product is in proper operating
condition.
23. Wall or Ceiling Mounting – Mount the product to a wall or
ceiling only as recommended by the manufacturer.
24. Heat - Situate this product away from heat sources, such as
radiators, heat registers, stoves, or other products (including
amplifiers) that produce heat.
25. Battery usage CAUTION - To prevent battery leakage that
may result in bodily injury or damage to the unit:

6 Introduction
Welcome!
Your Philips DVD Recorder both records DVD+RWs/DVD+Rs and plays prerecorded DVDs. You can
record TV programs, edit camcorder recordings, and quickly access your recordings in the Index
Picture Screen. Plus, the recordings you make on the Recorder will play on some DVD Players and
DVD-ROM drives. You’ll soon appreciate the digital picture and sound quality of DVD, DVD+RW, and
DVD+R, which will exceed the quality you have had with video cassette tapes.
Read this manual carefully to understand the latest features, then enjoy your new DVD Recorder.

Playable Discs 7
This DVD Recorder will play various types of Discs. Some Disc types will only play on the Recorder;
others will record in the Recorder; some will record and play. There are also a few types of Discs that
will neither play nor record on this Recorder. Look for these logos on your Discs to determine
whether the Disc will or will not play or record on the Philips DVD Recorder.
Discs for Recording and Playing
DVD+R (Digital Video Disc +
Recordable): These Discs can be
recorded only once. After you finalize
a DVD+R, you cannot record on it
any more.
DVD+RW (Digital Video Disc +
Rewritable): These Discs can be
recorded on repeatedly. Recordings
can be erased, then you can record
again on the same Disc.
Discs Unsuitable for Recording
or Playing
DVD-Audio
DVD-RAM
Discs for Playing Only
Video CD
Similar to DVDs, these Discs hold less
material. For example, a two-hour
movie will fit on one DVD, but may
take two VCDs.
DVD (Digital Video Disc)
DVD-R (DVD-Recordable)
You cannot record on these Discs
using the Philips DVD Recorder.
DVD-RW (DVD-Rewritable)
You cannot record on these Discs
using the Philips DVD Recorder.

Region Codes and Color Systems
DVDs must meet the requirements for Region Codes and Color Systems before you can use them
with the DVD Recorder. DVDs must be labelled for ALL regions or for Region 1 in order to play on
this DVD Recorder. You cannot play Discs that are labeled for other regions. These symbols must
appear on your DVDs, or you cannot play the DVD in this DVD Recorder.
The number inside the globe refers to a region of the world. Region 1 represents the United States,
Canada, upper regions of North America, Bermuda, the U.S. Virgin Islands, and small regions near
Australia.
Furthermore, recordings are made according to different color systems throughout the world. The
most common color systems are NTSC, which is used primarily in the United States and North
America, PAL, and SECAM.
This DVD Recorder is compatible with NTSC and PAL. Make sure the Discs you play were recorded
in NTSC or PAL. The color system of the DVD may appear on the DVD or on the Disc case.
However, when playing a PAL Disc, the Recorder must be connected to a PAL-compatible TV using
either the S-VIDEO OUT (Y/C) (EXT 1), Component Video Out (Y PB PR) (EXT3), or PROG SCAN
OUT (Y PB PR) jacks of the Recorder. The Recorder’s VIDEO OUT (CVBS) (EXT2) jack does not
send a clear PAL signal. If a PAL Disc is copy-protected, the video signal (or picture) may not be correct if you are using the PROG SCAN OUT (Y PB PR) jacks on the Recorder.

Hookups 9
Determining the best possible connection...
The capabilities of your existing equipment, especially your TV, will determine your connection possibilities. However, the following guidelines describe which options provide the best picture and sound quality.
★★★★ Component Video provides the best picture quality. Progressive Scan Component Video has the highest quality, but
use it only if the TV has Progressive Scan. Details are on page 10.
★★★
S-Video provides excellent picture quality. Details are on page 11.
★★
Composite Video (a yellow Video jack) provides good picture quality. Details are on page 12.
★★
Your TV may have only an RF-style jack, usually labeled Antenna In or 75 ohm. You will need an RF
Modulator in order to view the DVD Recorder at your TV. Refer to the details below and to the instructions
provided with the RF Modulator. The RF Modulator and necessary cables are not supplied with the DVD Recorder.
★★★★
★★★
Digital audio connections provide the clearest sound. Connect one of the DVD Recorder’s DIGITAL AUDIO OUT
jacks (COAX (coaxial) or OPTICAL) to your Stereo for the best sound quality. Details are on page 14.
If digital audio connections are not possible, connect the DVD Recorder’s red and white AUDIO OUT jacks to the
Audio In jacks of your Stereo or TV. Details are on pages 10-13.
Before you begin...
●
●
●
Refer to the manuals of your TV, Stereo, or other equipment as necessary. Note the style of jacks and connectors on the
other equipment. Determine how to choose different Audio and Video In channels on your other equipment so you can see
and hear the DVD Recorder on the TV, Stereo, etc.
Disconnect all equipment from the power outlets. Connect the equipment to the power outlets only after you have finished
hooking up everything. Never make or change connections with equipment connected to the power outlet.
If you need to connect a VCR, Cable Box, or Satellite Receiver to your Recorder, refer to the separate Quick
Start Guide for details.
Remember...
●
●
●
●
●
●
Set the TV to the correct Video In channel. This is not channel 3 or 4 as it might be when using a VCR (unless you are
using an RF Modulator as detailed below). Video In channels may be called AUX or AUXILIARY IN, AUDIO/VIDEO or A/V
IN, EXT1 or EXT2 or External In, etc. These channels often are near TV channel 00. Or, your TV remote control may have a
button or switch that lets you choose the Video In channel directly. See your TV manual for details. Or, go to your lowest TV
channel and change channels down until you see the blue Philips DVD background picture on the TV screen.
Connect the DVD Recorder directly to the TV. For example, do not connect the DVD Recorder to a VCR, then connect the
VCR to a TV. This type of connection may distort the picture and sound. Also, your VCR might have the copy protection system, which could distort the DVD image.
Set the Stereo to the correct channel or “source” mode.
Do not connect the DVD Recorder’s AUDIO OUT jacks to the PHONO IN jack of your Stereo.
You only need one audio connection and one video connection between the DVD Recorder and your TV (or TV and
Stereo). So, you might not use all the jacks on the Recorder.
If you plan to watch your TV with the DVD Recorder off, connect the supplied RF coaxial cable to the Recorder’s TV jack
and to the RF IN or ANTENNA IN jack (75 ohm) on your television. This lets you watch channels at the TV normally when
the DVD Recorder is off and will improve the reception at your TV.
Once you determine the option that best fits with your existing equipment, find your choice on
pages 10-15. Follow the steps for the hookup you chose.
Then, when you finish your connections and turn on the DVD Recorder for the first time, complete the Initial
Setup. This sets up TV channels, menu languages, and other features. Go to page 16 to do the Initial Setup.
Using an RF Modulator ...
1 You may have an Antenna/Cable TV signal connected to your TV’s ANTENNA IN jack. Remove it from the TV and connect the Antenna/Cable TV signal to the DVD Recorder’s ANTENNA jack.
2 Connect the supplied video cable (with yellow ends) to the DVD Recorder’s yellow VIDEO OUT (CVBS) (EXT 2) jack and
to the VIDEO IN jack on the RF Modulator.
3 Connect the supplied audio cable (with red/white ends) to the DVD Recorder’s AUDIO OUT (EXT 1/2) jacks and to the
AUDIO IN jacks on the RF Modulator. Match the cable colors to the jack colors.
4 Connect an RF coaxial cable to the RF OUT/ANTENNA OUT/TO TV jack on the RF Modulator. Connect the other end
of the same RF coaxial cable to the ANTENNA IN/RF IN jack on your TV.
5 Your RF Modulator should have a Channel 3/4 switch. This determines the TV channel on which you will watch materials
coming from the DVD Recorder. Set the RF Modulator’s Channel 3/4 switch to either 3 or 4, whichever TV channel is
least used in your area.
If your RF Modulator has a Modulator/Antenna switch, set it accordingly. Refer to the RF Modulator instructions.
6 Turn on your TV. Choose channel 3 or 4 (the same channel to which you set the RF Modulator’s Channel 3/4 switch).
7 Connect the DVD Recorder’s power cord to a power outlet. Turn on the DVD Recorder by pressing ON/OFF y. You
can set up TV channels as described on page 36.

Component Video In channel.
Helpful Hints
• If your TV has Progressive Scan,
connect the DVD Recorder’s
PROG SCAN OUT Y PB PR jacks
to the TV’s Progressive Scan In
jacks (instead of using the COMPONENT VIDEO OUT jacks as
described in step 2). Progressive
Scan produces a clearer picture
by doubling the number of visible
picture lines per field, providing a
jitter-free, sharp, quiet picture.
Only use these connections if your
TV has Progressive Scan. Check
your TV manual for details.
• On the TV, the Component Video
In jacks may be labeled YUV or
Pr/Cr Pb/Cb Y and may be green,
blue, and red.
• If you plan to watch your TV with
the DVD Recorder off, connect
the supplied RF coaxial cable to
the Recorder’s TV jack and to the
RF IN or ANTENNA IN jack (75
ohm) on your television. This lets
you watch channels at the TV
normally when the DVD Recorder
is off and will improve the reception at your TV.

If your Cable Box/Satellite Receiver has Audio/Video Out jacks as
shown in this example, set the Recorder to an EXT channel.
Choose the channel that corresponds to the jacks you used on the
rear of the DVD Recorder. For example, if you connected a Cable
Box to the EXT 2 IN jacks as shown, choose channel EXT 2 at the
Recorder in Monitor mode.
Or, if your Cable Box/Satellite Receiver has a single RF Out/TV
Out/Antenna Out/75 ohm jack, set the Recorder to channel 3 or 4.

● Most prerecorded video cassettes and DVDs are copy protected. If
you try to copy them with the DVD Recorder, the Recorder display may show “COPY PROTECT.”
● If you record material that is playing on a VCR onto a
DVD+RW/DVD+R, adjust the tracking on the VCR first. If the
Recorder’s display shows “NO SIGNAL,” adjust the tracking. See
your VCR owner’s manual for details on tracking adjustment.
● Do not connect a Progressive Scan video source (such as a DVD
Player) to the COMPONENT VIDEO IN jacks (EXT3). The DVD
Recorder cannot receive Progressive Scan video.
● Connect the DVD Recorder directly to the TV. Do not connect
the DVD Recorder to a VCR, then connect the VCR to a TV.

If you intend to use the VCR Plus+ programming system, program the
DVD Recorder with your local channel information. This will only take a
few minutes. Since the channel numbers of the stations you receive may
not be the same as the station numbers, and since channel numbers differ
from area to area, you must set up channels in order for the system to
work efficiently.
Before you begin, make sure you have 1) a cable TV channel list, if applicable (you can request one from your cable TV company), and 2) a chart that
lists VCR Plus+ channel numbers, which you can find in your TV guide or
the TV listings of your local newspaper.

Some TV programs broadcast in stereo or in a second audio program (SAP).
Usually, second audio means the program has a second language available. For
example, the program might be available in English and Spanish, with Spanish
being the SAP (second audio program) option.
To record the stereo or SAP broadcasts with the DVD Recorder, select
Stereo or SAP as your preferred recording audio as described below.
Your selection will only be active if the program is available in stereo or second audio. When you play the recording, you can play only in the audio you
recorded. For example, if you recorded in SAP, you can play the recording
only in SAP.

62 Helpful Hints
If you are having problems with your product, check this list of problems and possible solutions before requesting service. You may
be able to solve the problem yourself.
No power
• Press STANDBY-ON y on the front of the DVD Recorder to turn on the DVD Recorder.
• Connect the supplied power cord securely to the MAINS (AC power) jack on the rear of the DVD Recorder. Connect the
power cord firmly to an AC power outlet. Use only the supplied power cord.
• Make sure the AC outlet has power by trying another appliance in the same outlet.
No picture
• Make sure the TV power is on.
• Check the video cables. Make sure the cable(s) are fastened securely to the Recorder and the TV.
• Set your TV to the correct Video In channel. These channels are usually near channel 00. Or, you may have a button on the TV
remote control that selects an Auxiliary or A/V IN channel. See your TV owner’s manual for details. Or, go to your lowest TV
channel and change channels down until you see the Recorder’s background picture on the TV screen.
• You only need one video connection between the DVD Recorder and the TV. Details are on page 9.
The picture is distorted; the picture is black and white during playback.
• TVs have a color system standard, usually NTSC in the United States. If the Disc’s color system is different than your TV’s
color system, the picture may be distorted or colorless.
• The Recorder can not record in color if the TV channel or source is not providing color. In some situations, programs that are
broadcast in black and white can not be recorded.
• Check the Disc for fingerprints. Clean the Disc with a soft cloth, wiping from the center to the edge in a straight line.
• Sometimes a small amount of picture distortion may appear. This is not a malfunction.
• If you set Record mode to a low-quality speed (such as EP in order to fit more recording on a Disc), set Record mode to a highquality speed (such as SP) after you finish recording. Leaving the Recorder set to a low-quality speed may affect the picture quality
when playing DVDs later. Details are on page 46.
The sound is distorted during Disc playback through a Stereo.
• Do not connect any cables from the DVD Recorder to the Stereo’s “PHONO IN” jack.
• Do not connect a digital jack on the Recorder (DIGITAL AUDIO OUT - OPTICAL or COAX) to an analog jack on the Stereo.
(Analog audio jacks are usually labeled as such and are usually red and white.)
No sound
• Check the audio connections. Details are on pages 9-15. Remember, you only need one audio connection. See page 9 to see
what connection best suits your situation.
• Make sure cables are connected firmly to all equipment.
• Select another channel, sound source, or Auxiliary station at your Stereo or TV. See your Stereo’s manual or TV’s manual for
details. Or, just continue selecting the different sound sources or modes on the Stereo or TV until you hear sound from the
Disc that is in the DVD Recorder.
Details are on pages 9-15.
• Check your Analog output settings or Digital output settings. Make sure you choose the right setting, based on what equipment
you connected to the DVD Recorder. Details are on pages 56-57.
• Make sure your Analog output settings or Digital output settings match the capabilities of your Stereo Receiver or TV. Details
are on pages 56-57.
• Change the Audio setting of the DVD in the DVD Disc Menu.
A Disc recorded on this DVD Recorder will not play on a DVD Player.
• Make sure the recording is at least five minutes long if recorded in HQ; 10 minutes long if recorded in SP; 15 minutes long if
recorded in LP; or 20 minutes long if recorded in EP. Details are on page 46.
• In some cases, you can adapt the Disc at the DVD Recorder, then try it again in the Player. This procedure does not solve the
playability problem with all brands of Players. Furthermore, it may make the Disc incompatible with Players with which the Disc
was compatible before you modified the Disc.
To modify a Disc, place the Disc in the DVD Recorder’s disc tray. Do not close the tray. Then, press and hold the Number 2
button on the remote control until the tray closes. The Disc is now modified. Try it on the other Player.
If the Disc still will not play on the Player, repeat this procedure, but press and hold the Number 3 button instead until the
Recorder’s tray closes.
To return the Disc to its original version, repeat this process using the Number 1 button.
• To play a DVD+R on another DVD Player, finalize the Disc first. Follow the steps on page 47, choosing “Finalize Disc” at step 4.
• Editing changes may not be accessible when you play the Disc on other DVD Players. Details are on page 48.
An Audio CD will not play on the DVD Recorder.
• Some Audio CDs available on the market are copy protected. This DVD Recorder may not play such copy-protected discs.
The DVD Recorder will not select some features, such as Angles, Subtitles, or multi-language Audio.
• The feature may not be available on the Disc. If it is not, an “X” will appear on the TV screen. Check the Disc case to see if the
Disc has the feature. If the Disc does not have the feature, the DVD Recorder cannot create the feature. This is not a malfunction of the DVD Recorder.
Helpful Hints (cont'd) 63
Disc will not play.
• Make sure the Disc label is facing up. If you are playing a two-sided Disc, make sure the label of the side you want to play is
facing up. Details are on page 18.
• Check the Access Control settings for the Disc. Details are on pages 49-53.
• Check the Region Code of the DVD. The DVD must be coded for All regions or Region 1 in order to play on this DVD
Recorder. Details are on page 7.
• See if the Disc is defective by trying another Disc. Make sure the Disc is not scratched or warped. Carefully clean the Disc.
Details are on page 6.
• A DVD+RW recorded on a different brand of Recorder can play on the Philips DVD Recorder, but all its features may not be
accessible. However, you may be able to adapt the disc format so you can access the Disc’s original features. Details are on page
54. If the Disc is protected, you can not adapt the disc format.
The DVD Recorder does not respond to the remote control.
• Aim the remote control directly at the IR sensor on the front of the DVD Recorder. Details are on page 22. Point the remote
control toward the DVD Recorder, not your TV.
• Remove any obstacles between the DVD Recorder and the remote control.
• Inspect or replace the batteries in the remote control. Details are on page 8.
• The remote control may have been set to operate another DVD Recorder accidentally. Press and hold the SELECT and
Number 1 buttons on the remote control at the same time to have the remote control operate the DVD Recorder.
• Make sure you selected DVD Recorder as the Remote control used. Details are on page 59.
Recordings are not occurring as scheduled. New recordings cannot be made.
• See if the Disc has the maximum number of titles. Delete some recordings (DVD+RW only). Details are on page 44.
• You can record only if the Disc is Unprotected. You cannot use a write-protected Disc. Details are on page 47.
• You cannot duplicate copyrighted DVDs, videotapes, or TV broadcasts using the Recorder. “COPY PROTECT” may
appear on the display panel if you try to dub or record copyrighted material onto a DVD+R or DVD+RW using the
Recorder.
• The signal from your Antenna/Cable TV system must be strong enough to provide good channel reception. If the signal is
weak, if there is no signal, or if a channel has gone off the air, a recording will not occur.
• Check the Disc. If the Disc is bad (scratched, warped, etc.) or if the Recorder cannot read the Disc, you cannot record.
“NO DISC” may appear on the display.
• A timer recording may not occur if the power fails during the time the recording was supposed to occur.
• If you adjust the clock after you set a timer recording, reset the timer recording.
The Index Picture Screen does not appear, but the Disc still plays.
• Clean the Disc. Details are on page 6.
• Adapt the disc format if possible. Details are on page 54.

• The DVD Recorder will not operate until you complete the Initial Setup. Details are on pages 16-17.
• In all other cases, disconnect the power cord from the Recorder and the power outlet for a few minutes. Reconnect the power
cord and try to operate the Recorder again as usual.
If the DVD Recorder still will not operate, disconnect the power cord from the Recorder again. Then, while pressing and holding the STANDBY-ON y button on the front of the Recorder, reconnect the power cord. This resets the DVD Recorder to
the factory mode, or to its original settings as they were when you first received the Recorder. You will have to complete the
Initial Setup again and reset any items you have adjusted during your use of the Recorder.
Messages or strange codes appear on the Recorder’s display.
• Remove and reinsert the Disc.
• Clean the Disc.
• Disconnect the power cord from the power outlet, then reconnect the cord and try playback as usual.
• During Initial Setup, “TURN ON TV” will appear on the Recorder’s display panel. This appears in addition to the Initial Setup
information that shows on your TV screen. (Initial Setup information is on page 16.) “TURN ON TV” indicates you should turn
on your television and set it to the correct Video In channel. Even though your TV may be on, you must set it to the correct
Video In channel to see the Initial Setup messages. See pages 9-14 to determine the correct Video In channel for your connection. Or, see your TV manual for details.
• There are error messages that apply to recording problems. Details are on page 43.
All of the DVD Recorder’s system menu is not visible.
• Certain televisions may not show the entire system menu on the TV screen. If the upper or top portion of the Recorder’s system menu does not appear properly, this is a TV-related issue and is not an improper functioning of the Recorder.
64 Glossary
AC-3: Audio Coding 3, also known as Dolby Digital; a multi-channel digital audio compression system from
Dolby Labs.
Analog: Sound that has not been turned into numbers. Analog sound varies, while digital sound has specific
numerical values. Analog sound is available when you use the red and white audio jacks on your equipment.
These jacks send audio through two channels, the left and right.
AUDIO OUT Jacks: Jacks on the rear of the DVD Recorder that send audio to another system (TV,
Stereo Receiver, etc.).
A/V: Audio/Video.
CD: Compact Disc.
COAX (coaxial) jack: Sends digital audio to a Stereo Receiver, allowing you to adjust the volume at the
Receiver. The Receiver must have a coaxial in jack. This connection provides the 5.1 channel surround sound
as heard in movie theaters.
Color system: There are various systems for transmitting television signals, for example PAL, SECAM, and
NTSC. NTSC is the most common color system in the United States of America. The TV system is country
dependent. The Recorder automatically selects the right TV system.
COMPONENT VIDEO Jacks: The OUT jacks on the rear of the DVD Recorder send high-quality video
to a TV that has Component Video In jacks. The IN jacks allow the Recorder to receive high-quality video
from other equipment, such as a DVD Player.
Digital: Sound that has been converted into numerical values. Digital sound is available when you use the
COAX (coaxial) or OPTICAL DIGITAL AUDIO OUT jacks on the Recorder. These jacks send audio through
multiple channels, instead of just two channels as analog does.
Dolby Digital: A surround sound system that provides 5.1 channel sound as used in movie theaters.
DTS: Digital Theater Systems. This is a surround sound system, but it is different from Dolby Digital. The
formats were developed by different companies.
DVD: Digital Video Disc.
DVD+R: DVD+Recordable. These Discs can be recorded and finalized only once.
DVD+RW: DVD+ReWritable. These Discs can be recorded on repeatedly.
i.LINK: Also known as ‘FireWire ’and ‘IEEE 1394.’ A cable for transfer of high bandwidth digital signals as
used by Digital Video camcorders or some Personal Computers.
Index Picture Screen: A screen that gives an overview of a DVD+RW or DVD+R. An Index Picture represents each recording.
Letterbox: Widescreen format; a TV aspect ratio setting (4:3). Displays the video in full-width, with black
bars at the top and bottom of the TV screen. This format is similar to seeing a movie in a theater. If the Disc
does not include a letterbox format, selecting 4:3 letterbox may have no effect. (For example, some DVDs
are two-sided, with one side playing in widescreen format and the other side playing in a normal format.)
MPEG: Motion Picture Experts Group. A collection of compression systems for digital audio and video.
OPTICAL Jack: Converts electrical signals into optical signals before sending the audio to the Stereo
Receiver. Optical audio is not prone to external electrical influences and has less noise, which reduces
adverse effects on external equipment. Be sure to keep the protective cap on the jack when the jack is not in
use. This keeps dust out of the jack.
OTR: One-Touch Recording. Start a timed recording by pushing just one button; select the switch-off time
in intervals of 30 minutes.
Pan & Scan: A TV aspect ratio setting (4:3). Displays the video with full-height picture, with one or both
sides of the picture trimmed to fit on your TV screen. Some movie companies refer to this as “reformatting
the picture to fit your TV screen.”
PBC: Playback Control. A special feature on a Video CD or Super VCD that enables interactive use.
PBS: Public Broadcast System. The PBS channel transmits data for Automatic clock setting.
PCM: Pulse Code Modulation. A digital audio encoding system.
RGB: Red-Green-Blue. A top-quality video connection where red, green and blue components of a video
signal are carried through separate wires. This also is referred to as the component video connection.
S-Video: Produces a clearer picture by sending separate signals for the luminance and the color. If you connect the supplied S-Video cable, you will not need to use the supplied yellow video cable. You can use SVideo only if your TV has an S-Video In jack.
TruSurround: A system that simulates multi-channel sound via a two-channel connection (audio left and
right). This allows you to enjoy multi-channel sound if your Stereo does not have a multi-channel decoder.
VCD: Video Compact Disc
VCR Plus+ System: Allows you to set a timer recording by entering a PlusCode number found in participating TV listings.
VIDEO OUT Jack: Jack on the rear of the DVD Recorder that sends video (picture) to a TV.
Widescreen: A TV aspect ratio setting (16:9). Displays the video appropriately when you connect the DVD
Recorder to a widescreen TV.

Press and hold the PLAY : button on the front of the Recorder while you reconnect the power cord to the Recorder. “BUSY” will appear on the display panel, along with
a counter number. Release PLAY :. The counter will reach zero (0) when the test is finished.
Momentarily, “FAIL” or “PASS” will appear on the display panel.
If “FAIL” appears, your Recorder needs repair. Contact the Philips Customer Care Center for
the Authorized Service Center nearest you.
If “PASS” appears, the Recorder apparently has no failure. The problem may be incorrect interpretation of the operating instructions, a wrong Disc in use, or incorrect connections. Contact
the Philips Customer Care Center for further assistance in solving the problem.
If there is no failure, disconnect the power cord again, then reconnect it to the Recorder and an
AC power outlet. The DVD Recorder will be ready for regular use.
