Disc-related terms
MP3
MP3 is a popular compression format used for digital
audio files that yields very high near-CD quality sound.
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.
Title (DVD 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 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.
Track
A distinct element of audio/visual 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.
Types of Video CDs
There are two types of Video CDs:
• Video CDs equipped with PBC (Version 2.0)
PBC (playback control) functions allow 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)
Operated in the same way as Audio CDs, these
discs allow playback of video pictures as well as
sound, but they are not equipped with PBC.

The DVD+VCR has two separate audio playback systems, the high quality VHS Hi-Fi system and standard
NORMAL mono system. The same audio is generally
recorded on both systems. The VHS Hi-Fi system
plays on separate (left and right) channels, and the
NORMAL system plays monaural sound. The normal
track is always played so the cassette can be played
on a DVD+VCR that does not have VHS Hi-Fi.
BROADCAST TYPE (STEREO / SAP / MONO)
Multichannel Television Sound (MTS) carries stereo
and/or Second Audio Program (SAP) bilingual signals.
Set this display to the desired position when both
MTS stereo and SAP signals are received. When only
one of the MTS signal is received, the DVD+VCR
automatically selects the corresponding receiving
mode (Stereo or SAP) regardless of the selected
position. For normal operation, the display should be
in the STEREO position. The DVD+VCR will then
record a STEREO program when available, and
record a mono program IF the program is NOT IN
STEREO. For weak STEREO and/or SAP broadcasts,
changing the display to mono may give clearer sound.
AUDIO OUTPUT (STEREO / LEFT / RIGHT)
Used during playback [when AUDIO MODE (HI-FI/
NORMAL) is in HI-FI position] for selecting the audio
output signals from the AUDIO OUT terminals (L ch
and R ch), and RF.OUT. This display setting should
normally be left in the stereo position, so that when a
stereo tape is played, the stereo sound will be heard
through the left and right channels. If a mono tape is
played and the audio output is set to stereo, the
same mono sound will be heard from both left and
right channels.
In addition to the above settings, these other sources
are also affected:
1. Playback of CD, DVD or VCD
2. Output of built in tuner, Line 1 or Line 2

limited as follows:
• Depending upon the size and number of JPEG
files, it could take a long time for the DVD+VCR
to read the disc’s contents. 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 5760 (Horizontal) x
3840 (Vertical) pixels and burn another disc.
• The total number of contents on the disc should
be less than 1500 files and 300 folders.
• 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 DVD+VCR. Even though
the files are shown as JPEG image files in
Windows Explorer.
