Introduction
Overview of BD-X200 Functions
䡵Video and audio signals from this DVD recorder’s input terminals can be recorded to
DVD-R or DVD-RW (video mode only). (☞ Page 29)
The types of signals that can be used are as follows.
Video: Composite video, YC separate, or DV signals (including audio)
Audio: Analog audio or DV signals (including video)
䡵A wide range of recording methods are supported. The appropriate method is to be
selected in accordance with the intended mode of use.
● The REC, PAUSE, and STOP buttons on the front panel can be used for standard operations. (☞ Page 41)
● Recording operations can be carried out using the REC CONTROL panel. Furthermore, a keyboard and mouse can also be
used when recording via this panel. (☞ Page 43)
● The BD-X200 features an RS-422A terminal. When it is connected to an RS-422A compatible VCR, therefore, RS-422 control
can be used to carry out synchronous recording of the VCR’s video and audio to a DVD. (Various menu settings are required.)
Synchro-recording is carried out from the REMOTE CONTROL screen. (☞ Page 64)
● When a digital video camera or a DV player is connected to the BD-X200 using a DV cable, and when this DVD recorder is
setup as the master device for DV control (using menu settings), synchronous recording of any video and/or audio signals
from the DV player can be carried out to a DVD. Synchro-recording is carried out from the REMOTE CONTROL screen. (☞
Page 64)
● The DV IN/OUT terminal can be used to record audio and video from a non-linear editor to a DVD. In such a case, the BDX200 must be setup as the control slave (using menu settings).
The DVD recorder will be controlled by the non-linear editor in this type of setup. (☞ Page 73)
䡵The title and chapter menus can be created either automatically or manually. (☞ Page 45)
Five different patterns have been provided as display styles for the title and chapter menus. Each of these patterns is characterized
by different thumbnail characteristics (i.e., number, position, and size) and background images displayed on the title and
chapter menu screens.
When a display style is selected during the recording of content to a DVD, the BD-X200 will automatically create the title and
chapter menus in accordance with this style.
The PRESET STYLE MENU screen can be used to modify the thumbnail and background display characteristics of each of the
display styles.
In addition, the THUMBNAIL EDIT screen and the CHAPTER MENU EDIT screen can be used to modify the display style and
thumbnail images for chapter menus, and also to input chapter names and comments. The input of names or comments is
carried out using a keyboard connected to one of the recorder’s USB terminals.
The TITLE MENU EDIT screen can be used to modify the display style for the title menu and to enter title names.
䡵DVD dubbing can be carried out using the LAN terminal.
This terminal allows two BD-X200 DVD recorders to be connected using a LAN cable, and the recorders can then operate as
master and receiver devices during the dubbing of DVDs. (☞ Page 79)
䡵The BD-X200 can be used to play discs that it has created. (☞ Page 59)
● Once a disc has been finalized, it can also be played on other DVD players.
E-4
䡵 Storage & Usage Locations
The storage and usage of this DVD recorder in the following
types of location should be avoided.
● Areas at temperatures which deviate by a significant degree
above or below the permitted service temperature range
(i.e., 5°C to 35°C).
● Areas at humidities which deviate by a significant degree
above or below the permitted service humidity range (i.e.,
20% to 80% RH).
● Areas where a large amount of dust or sand is present.
● Areas where the DVD recorder may come into contact with
oily smoke or steam, such as in kitchens or in their
immediate vicinity.
● Areas that are unstable or where significant vibration occurs.
● Areas where condensation occurs readily.
● Areas where strong magnetic fields are generated by
transformers, motors, or the like.
● Areas where transceivers, mobile phones, and other
wireless-communication devices are present.
● Areas that are subjected to X-ray irradiation or where
corrosive gases are present. (This precaution must be
strictly observed.)
䡵 Handling
● Ensure that this DVD recorder is placed on a flat, horizontal
surface for use.
● Do not place heavy objects such as a monitor on top of the
DVD recorder.
● Do not insert foreign objects into the disc tray opening.
● Be careful not to get your fingers clamped when loading
the disc to prevent injury.
● Do not block the fan’s ventilation holes.
● Avoid knocking or dropping this DVD recorder.
● When the DVD recorder is to be moved, ensure that any
DVD it contains is removed in advance.
● If the DVD recorder is not to be used for an extended period
of time, please disconnect the AC adaptor to avoid wasting
electricity.
Precautions Regarding Condensation
䡵Condensation
When cold water is poured into a glass and droplets of
water form on its outer surface, this moisture is referred
to as “condensation”.
䡵When condensation occurs
Condensation can cause water droplets to adhere to the
DVD recorder ’s internal lens, thus making normal
operation impossible.
䡵Condensation occurs easily in the following situations,
and the appropriate care should be taken.
• When the DVD recorder is moved from a cold location
into a warm room.
• When the room containing the DVD is rapidly heated.
• When an air conditioner’s air duct is pointing straight at
the DVD recorder.
䡵In situations where it is likely that condensation will occur,
remove any DVD that may be present in the BD-X200
and then turn the power on. As the interior heats up,
condensation will be less likely to occur.
䡵Condensation is a principal cause of the inability to play
discs and other similar problems. In this type of situation,
allow the DVD recorder to remain inactive with its power
on for several hours. If the problem persists after this
period of time has elapsed, contact either the store where
the BD-X200 was purchased or your nearest JVC
Authorized dealer.
Extended Periods of Inactivity
Performance may deteriorate over extended periods of
inactivity; for this reason, the power should be turned on
and the DVD recorder should be operated at regular
intervals.
䡵 Cleaning the Exterior (with the power off)
Use a soft cloth when cleaning the outside of this DVD
recorder.
Do not use paint thinners or organic solvents as cleaning
agents.
Failure to observe these precautions can result in discoloration
or melting of exterior surfaces.
When stubborn dirt is present, wipe away using a cloth soaked
in a dilute neutral solvent.
䡵 Always use the AC adaptor provided with this DVD
recorder.
䡵 Always use the power cord provided with this DVD
recorder.
The usage of a different type of cord or a damaged cord can
result in the outbreak of fire or electric shocks.
䡵 The power cord or the AC adaptor supplied with this
DVD recorder should not be used with any other device.
䡵 Before connecting the BD-X200 to other devices,
turn those devices off and then carry out setup
procedures as described in the corresponding
user’s manuals.
䡵 The DVD drive unit is an expendable part. Although
the service life of the DVD drive unit differs depending
on the usage environment of the customer, replacement
every 1000 hours as a guide is recommended. (☞ Page
87 “TOTAL RECORDING TIME”)
Compensation for Damaged Content
䡵JVC accepts no responsibility whatsoever for damages
incurred as a result of an inability to play or record audio
and video content in the rare event that this DVD recorder,
a DVD-R, or a DVD-RW fails to operate correctly.
䡵It is recommended that discs containing important content
be backed up at regular intervals (i.e., on a yearly basis).
Although digital signals do not deteriorate, storage
environments can have an effect on a disc’s aging
characteristics, and this may result in an inability to play
or record.
䡵If a disc should break, there will be no way to recover
data from it.
䡵Proper playback of discs recorded using this DVD recorder
on all devices is not guaranteed.

Precautions for DVD Recorder Use
Introduction
Precautions for Disc Usage
Care of Discs to Ensure High-Quality Playback
䡵Fingerprints, dust, or any other similar contamination of the surface of a disc can lead to distortion in the playback of recorded
video and audio. For this reason, it is good practice to wipe each disc with a soft cloth before use.
䡵 Looking After Discs
● Using a soft cloth, wipe the disc gently from the inside to
the outside.
● If stubborn dirt is present on the surface of a disc, wipe first
using a slightly wet cloth and then using a dry cloth.
● Paint thinners, organic solvents, analog record cleaning
agents, anti-static sprays, and the like must never be used.
Failure to observe this precaution can lead to discs being
permanently damaged.
Additional Notes on Disc Handling
䡵Never wipe a disc using paint thinners, organic solvents,
alcohol, or record-cleaning fluid.
䡵Do not use disc protectors or scratch guards.
䡵Stickers and other types of paper label should not be applied.
䡵Do not use discs from which stickers or labels have been
removed.
䡵Do not use discs on which illustrations or text has been printed
using a commercially-available label printer. First create a disc
using the unit before printing.
䡵The use of non-circular discs (i.e., heart or rectangular
shaped), warped discs, and cracked discs can lead to
breakage of the DVD recorder.
E-6
䡵 Handling Discs

Introduction
Details Regarding Discs (continued)
DVD Data Configuration
Region Codes
Generally speaking, the content recorded on a DVD is separated
into large units referred to as “titles”. A unique number called a
“title number” is assigned to each of these titles, and as a result,
any title can be immediately accessed using its title number. In
addition, each title can be divided into smaller units referred to
as “chapters”. Similarly, a unique number called a “chapter
number” is assigned to each of these chapters, and this allows
any chapter to be immediately accessed using its chapter
number.
Each recording made to a DVD-R or DVD-RW (video mode) is
stored as a single title. In this, each pressing of the STOP button
to leave Recording mode constitutes a different recording. (This
action is also referred to as “title closing”.)
It is also possible to insert chapter marks to partition titles at the
desired points by pressing the REC button while recording.
It is possible to automatically add a chapter mark when recording
is temporarily stopped by pressing the PAUSE button. (Set from
the menu.) In addition, your BD-X200 can also be used to
automatically insert chapter marks at regular intervals.
(CHAPTER CREATION menu settings will be required for this
function.)

● Before a title is closed, it will be possible to modify the style
used for chapter menu display, to change the thumbnails used,
and to input thumbnail names.
● Before a disc is finalized, it will be possible to modify the style
used for the title menu and to input title names.
E-8
One of six numbers referred to as “region codes” is assigned to
DVD content to control the global regions in which this content
may be viewed. If a DVD’s region code does not correspond to
the region code of the DVD player being used, it will not be
possible to play the disc.
● This DVD recorder assigns the region code “ALL” to the discs
that it records.
● It will not be possible to play discs to which region codes have
been assigned.
Screen Sizes
This DVD recorder is capable of recording video content for widescreen TVs (i.e., with a 16:9 aspect ratio).
In addition, signals for normal content with a 4:3 aspect ratio, for
squeezed content (i.e., where the left and right are compressed),
and for letterbox content (i.e., where the top and bottom of the
screen are black) can be recorded as is.
● Thumbnail creation method for use in the title/chapter menu
during wide-signal input can be selected in THUMBNAIL
FORM of the RECORDER MENU (2/2) screen. (☞ Page 90)

Displayed when the internal temperature of the set rises due to fan malfunction, etc.
In this case, immediately turn off the power and discontinue use. The power will
automatically shut down in about 20 minutes after the OVERHEATING display.
ERRoR
This is displayed when playback or recording is stopped due to dirt or damage on the
disc. In this case, either clean the disc or replace it.
————
CAUTION
If alarm messages such as “INVALID DISC” are displayed several times when a disc recorded using the BD-X200 or a blank
disk is inserted, there is a possibility that the disc itself has been damaged. In such a case, the damaged disc should be
replaced with a new one.
If the alarm messages continue to appear after replacing the disc, the problem may lie within the DVD recorder, and in such a
case, you are recommended to contact either the store where this BD-X200 was purchased or your nearest JVC authorized
dealer.

● The section between the start of recording using the REC and PLAY buttons
and the end of recording using the STOP button constitutes a single recording
title, and each title is assigned a unique number.
A single disc can contain up to 99 different titles.
● Each title can be separated into a number of different chapters by inserting
chapter marks at the appropriate points. Unique numbers are also assigned
to chapters, and a single title can contain up to 99 different chapters.
● Adding chapters
A chapter mark is inserted automatically whenever recording is paused.
In addition, CHAPTER CREATION from the RECORDER MENU (1/2) screen
can also be used to setup the automatic or manual insertion of chapter marks.
● Thumbnails (i.e., the frame at the start of recording) and backgrounds are
automatically created for the title and chapter menus using the style selected
using PRESET STYLE.
If EDIT MENU from the SYSTEM MENU screen is set to ENABLE before the
start of recording, it will be possible to modify the chapter menu’s style and
thumbnails and to insert chapter names and comments whenever recording
is stopped (i.e., whenever title closing is performed).
● Once title closing has been carried out, it will not be possible to modify the
chapter menu.
● The REC CONTROL panel can be used to perform recording operations with
a keyboard and mouse. (REC CONTROL from the REMOTE MENU screen
must be set to ON.)
● If EDIT MENU from the SYSTEM MENU screen is set to ENABLE, it will be
possible to modify the title menu’s style and to input title names when the disc
is being finalized.

Settings & Controls for Recording
Preparing a Disc for Recording
䡵This DVD recorder is capable of recording to DVD-R and DVD-RW (in video mode).
DVD-R
: Only discs that conform with DVD-R Standard 2.0 (video mode) can be used.
DVD-RW : Discs of Version 1.1 or later can be used.
Although Version 1.1 of DVD-RW standards allows the selection of video mode and VR mode for recording, this
DVD recorder performs recording in video mode only.
* Version 1.0 of the DVD-RW standards does not support video-mode recording, and for this reason, the corresponding
discs cannot be used.
䡵In terms of recording characteristics, DVD-R and DVD-RW (video mode) differ as follows.
DVD-R
: Each disc can be recorded only once. Erasing of data and re-recording are not possible.
DVD-RW (video mode) : After viewing a disc, all data can be erased and it can be used to record new content.
The condition of the disc being used will dictate the available recording options as follows.
Disc condition
DVD-R
DVD-RW
Recording operations
Blank disc
New content can be recorded. A new title is created and recording
starts from that title’s first chapter.
A disc recorded on using this DVD recorder
but not yet finalized.
A new title is created in the unused section of the disc, and recording
starts from that title’s first chapter.

A new title is created in the unused section of the disc, and recording
starts from that title’s first chapter.
A recorded disc from which data is to be
erased.
Erase the recorded data (as described below), and then record
new content.
Notes
● If data has been erased from a disc using a different DVD recorder, it may not be possible to record new content to it using
this recorder. To avoid this type of situation, ensure that this DVD recorder is used to erase recorded data.
● New content cannot be recorded to discs that have been finalized.
It is possible to cancel the finalization and add a recording to a DVD-RW finalized on this machine.
● Regardless of whether or not finalization has been carried out, it will not be possible to use this DVD recorder to record new
content to a DVD-R or DVD-RW that has been recorded on using other devices.

● If the recording time is set using this parameter, ENCODE QUALITY will be set automatically.
ENCODE QUALITY (Mbps)
Specifically, it allows direct setting of the encoding bit rate (i.e., the amount of data per second).
Large values increase the quality of the video; however, this also increases the overall data size.
By changing this setting value the TOTAL CONTENTS TIME item is automatically set.
Setting range:
The range of values that can be set depends on the audio encoding format.
LPCM
: 4.0 to 7.8 Mbps (in 0.2 Mbps steps)
DOLBY DIGITAL : 2.0 to 9.0 Mbps (in 0.2 Mbps steps)
MPEG
: 2.0 to 9.0 Mbps (in 0.2 Mbps steps)
For a setting value of 3.4Mbps or lower, the screen resolution is Half D1 (352 × 576 dots).
For a setting value of 3.6Mbps or greater, the screen resolution is D1 (720 × 576 dots).

Each recorded DVD contains title and chapter menus that provide information relating to its titles and chapters.
Whenever recording is carried out, title numbers, chapter numbers, and thumbnails are automatically generated in order to create
the title and chapter menus.
Specifically, the frames from the start of individual recordings are used as thumbnails for the title menu.
In a similar way, the frames at which chapter marks have been inserted are used as thumbnails for chapter menus. (These thumbnails
may be modified later on.) The title menu will become the top thumbnail of the chapter menu.
The term “style” is used to refer to a combination of thumbnail characteristics for the title and chapter menus. This DVD recorder can
store eight different style types, and the PRESET STYLE MENU screen is used to indicate which of these types is to be used.

BD-X200 recording operations can be carried out in two different ways — namely, using the buttons provided on the front panel and
using the on-screen REC CONTROL panel. In the latter case, furthermore, recording operations can be performed using a keyboard
and mouse. The following section, however, will provide a description of recording using the front panel buttons.
On a DVD, the section of video recorded between the start of recording and pressing of the STOP button to end recording is stored
as a single title, and a unique title number is assigned to each of these sections. A single disc can contain up to 99 different titles.
In addition, each title can be separated into a number of different chapters by inserting chapter marks at the appropriate points, and
each title can contain up to 99 chapters.
Information relating to titles and chapters is stored on a disc in the form of title and chapter menus. When the disc is being played,
therefore, the title and chapter menus can be used to access specific sections of stored video and audio.

This DVD recorder can automatically create title and chapter menus as recording operations are started and stopped.
Title and chapter menus are created using the following.
● Title or chapter names : Numbers are applied based on the recording sequence.
● Chapter thumbnails
: The frames at which chapter marks have been inserted are used as thumbnails.
● Title thumbnails
: The frames at the start of individual recordings are used as thumbnails. As a result, a title’s thumbnail is
