damage or deterioration, unplug it, discontinue use of the appliance, and have the cord replaced with an exact replacement part
by an authorized servicer.
Protect the power cord from physical or mechanical abuse, such
as being twisted, kinked, pinched, closed in a door, or walked
upon. Pay particular attention to plugs, wall outlets, and the point
where the cord exits the appliance.

INTRODUCTION
Disc-related terms
Overview (Continued)
About Recordable discs
How are recordable discs different?
The essential difference among DVD-R, DVD-RW,
DVD+R and DVD+RW is that DVD-R and DVD+R are a
record-once medium, while DVD-RW and DVD+RW are
a re-recordable/erasable medium. You can re-record/
erase a DVD-RW and DVD+RW disc approximately
1,000 times.
Can I play my recordable discs in a regular DVD
player?
Generally, DVD-R, DVD+R discs and DVD-RW discs
recorded in Video mode are playable in a regular DVD
player, but they must be ‘finalized’ first. This process
fixes the contents of the disc to make them readable to
other DVD players as DVD-Video discs.
DVD-RW discs recorded in VR (Video Recording) mode
are playable in some players.
Unfinalized DVD+RW discs are playable in a regular
DVD player.
This indicates a product feature that is
capable of playing DVD-RW discs recorded
with Video Recording (VR) format.
What are “Recording modes”?
There are various recording modes available using this
recorder. When recording to a DVD-R, DVD+R or
DVD+RW disc, recordings are always in Video mode.
DVD-RW discs can be formatted for VR mode recording
or Video mode recording.
VR mode recording VR
• 4 different picture quality/recording time settings available (SP, LP, EP, XP)
• Not playable on regular DVD players
• Recordings can be extensively edited
Video mode recording Video
• 4 different picture quality/recording time settings available (SP, LP, EP, XP)
• Playable on regular DVD players (after finalizing)
• Limited editing features
DVD+RW mode recording +RW
• 4 different picture quality/recording time settings available (SP, LP, EP, XP)
• Playable on regular DVD players
• The edited contents is playable on regular DVD players only after finalizing
• Recordings can be edited the title/chapter
DVD+R mode recording +R
• 4 different picture quality/recording time settings available (SP, LP, EP, XP)
• Playable on regular DVD players (after finalization)
• Any edited contents are not be compatible on regular
DVD players. (Hide, chapter combine, added chapter
mark, etc.)
• Limited title/chapter editing features
ote
DVD-Video Format (Video mode) is a new format for
recording on DVD-R/RW and DVD+R/RW discs that
was approved by the DVD Forum in 2000. You may
therefore experience problems playing recordable DVD
discs in some players. Symptoms include video artifacts, audio and/or video dropouts and playback suddenly stopping.
Our company cannot take responsibility for problems
playing discs recorded on this Recorder Combi Receiver in
other players.
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
Combi Receiver plays the disc according to the Playlist.
About word ‘Original’ and ‘Playlist’
Throughout this manual, you will often see the words
Original and Playlist to refer to the actual content and
the edited version.
• Original: content refers to what’s actually recorded
on the disc.
• Playlist: content refers to the edited version of the
disc — how the Original content is to be played.

Overview (Continued)
otes
• This recorder cannot make recordings on CD-R or
CD-RW discs.
• Our company takes no responsibility for recording failure due to power cuts, defective discs, or damage to
the recorder.
• Fingerprints and small scratches on a disc can affect
playback and/or recording performance. Please take
proper care of your discs.
Disc types and recording formats, modes,
and settings
This recorder can play five different kinds of DVD disc:
pre-recorded DVD-Video discs, DVD-RW, DVD-R,
DVD+RW and DVD+R discs. The disc format for DVD-R
discs is always “Video format”—the same as pre-recorded DVD-Video discs. This means that once finalized,
you can play a DVD-R in a regular DVD player.
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 mode, then the recording mode is Video mode
(except for DVD-Video, which is not recordable, and so
does not have a recording mode).
Within the recording modes (which are fixed for the
whole disc) are the record settings. 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
• The recording times shown are not exact because the
Recorder Combi Receiver uses variable bit-rate video
compression. This means that the exact recording
time will depend on the material being recorded.
• When recording a TV broadcast, 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.
• 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.
• 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 26 (Disc
Initialize) for how to do this.
• When using a 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, recording
time available will only increase if you erase the last
title recorded on the disc.
• The Erase 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).
• The overwrite recording is available with DVD+RW
disc.

About DVD recording
Overview (Continued)
Recording TV audio channels
This recorder can record one or two channel audio. For
TV broadcasts, this usually means mono or stereo, but
some programs are broadcast with a main and a SAP
(Secondary Audio Program) audio channel.
If you’re recording in Video mode (or in VR mode), you
can record either the main audio or the SAP audio.
Restrictions on video recording
• You cannot record copy-protected video using this
recorder. Copy-protected video includes DVD-Video
discs, pre-recorded VHS tapes and some satellite
broadcasts. If copy-protected material is encountered
during a recording, the recording will pause or stop
automatically and an error mesage will be displayed.
• Video that is ‘copy-once only’ can only be recorded
using a DVD-RW disc in VR mode with CPRM (see
below).

Regarding Write Protect
For cards that have a write protect switch, if the switch
is on it will not be possible to write or erase the contents
of the card.
Inserting/Removing the Memory Card
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.

Before Operation
Speaker Positioning
In the case of normal position use the 6 speakers (2 front speakers, 1 center speaker, 2 rear speakers and subwoofer).
If you want to play the excellent bass sound, DTS digital surround or Dolby Digital surround, you should connect
a subwoofer.
• Front speakers
According to your listening position set up the speakers for equal distance. And by hearing position set up the
interval between speakers to 45 degree.
• Center speaker
The center speaker and front speakers are ideally the same height. But normally place it above or below the
television.
• Rear speakers
Place left and right behind the listening area. These speakers recreate sound motion and atmosphere required
for surround sound playback. For best results, do not install the rear speakers too far behind the listening
position and install them at or above the level of the listener’s ears. It is also effective to direct the rear speakers towards a wall or ceiling to further disperse the sound.
In the case of a smaller room size, if the audience is near to the rear wall set the rear speakers opposite each
other, and set the rear speakers above 60 - 90 cm than the listener’s ears.
• Subwoofer
This can be placed in any front position.

Allows you to enjoy 5.1(or 6) discrete channels of high quality digital audio from DTS program sources bearing the trademark such
as discs, DVD and compact discs, etc. DTS Digital Surround delivers up to 6 channels of transparent audio(which means identical to
the original masters) and results in exceptional clarity throughout a
true 360 degree sound field. The term DTS is a trademark of DTS
Technology, LLC. Manufactured under license from DTS
Technology, LLC.
When playing recordings of live music and classic, this mode provides a feeling similar to actually being in a small concert hall.
When playing recordings of live music and classic, this mode provides
a feeling similar to actually being in a large concert hall.
This mode provides a three dimensional effect similar to that of a
movie theater.
The Dolby Digital surround format lets you enjoy up to 5.1(or 6)
channels of digital surround sound from a Dolby Digital program
source. If you play DVDs with “
” mark, you can enjoy even
better sound quality, greater spatial accuracy, and improved
dynamic range.
(II)
BYPASS (2CH STEREO)
Outputs the sound from the front left and right speakers and
subwoofer.
You can select BYPASS by pressing SOUND MODE on the
remote control.
Dolby Pro Logic II creates five full-bandwidth output channels
from two-channel sources. This is done using an advanced,
high-purity matrix surround decoder that extracts the spatial
properties of the original recording without adding any new
sounds or tonal colorations.
MOVIE mode:
The Movie mode is for use with stereo television shows and all
programs encoded in Dolby Surround. The result is enhanced
soundfield directionality that approaches the quality of discrete
5.1-channel sound.
MUSIC mode:
The Music mode is for use with any stereo music recordings,
and provides a wide and deep sound space. The Music mode
includes controls that allow the sound to be tailored to individual
listening tastes.
MATRIX mode:
The Matrix mode is the same as the Music mode except that the
directional enhancement logic is turned off. It may be used to
enhance mono signals by making them seem “larger.” The
Matrix mode may also find use in auto systems, where the fluctuations from poor FM stereo reception can otherwise cause disturbing surround signals from a logic decoder. The ultimate
“cure” for poor FM stereo reception may be simply to force the
audio to mono.

This control extends the front stereo image to include
the surround speakers for an exciting “wraparound”
effect with side-wall imaging. It is particularly effective
for recordings which have strong left- or right-channel
elements in the mix, as these are detected and accentuated by the Panorama process.
C WIDT (Center Width)
This control allows center-channel sounds to be positioned between the center speaker and the left/right
speakers over a range of eight steps. Step “3” uses a
combination of all three front speakers to give the best
vocal imaging and most seamless soundstage presentation, and is recommended for most recordings. Step
“0” places all center sound in the center speaker. Step
“7” places all center sound equally in the left/right
speakers, just as in conventional stereo.
DIMEN (DIMENSION)
This control allows the user to gradually adjust the
sound field either towards the front or the rear. This can
be useful to help achieve the desired balance from all
the speakers with certain recordings that may contain
either too much or too little spatial effect. Step “0” is the
recommended setting, which has no effect on the
sound. Steps 1, 2, and 3 gradually move the sound forward, and steps –1, –2, and –3 move the sound
towards the surrounds.

A WMA file is made using Microsoft audio

WMA (Windows Media Audio) offers double the
audio compression of the MP3 format.
MP3/WMA Disc compatibility with this
recorder is limited as follows:
Changing the Audio Channel
Press AUDIO repeatedly to hear a different audio channel (stereo, left or right).
An MP3 file is audio data compressed by using the
MPEG1 audio layer-3 file-coding scheme. We call
files that have the “.mp3” file extension “MP3 files”.
The Recorder Combi Receiver can not read an
MP3 file that has a file extension other than “.mp3”.
•
CD-R/RW physical format should be “ISO 9660”
and “JOLIET”.
If you record MP3 files using the software which
cannot create a FILE SYSTEM, for example
“Direct-CD” etc., it is impossible to playback MP3
files. We recommend that you use “Easy-CD
Creator”, which creates an ISO9660 or JOLIET file
system.
The total number of files and folders on the disc are
free but the total number of files and folders on the
folder should be less than 999.
This Recorder Combi Receiver requires discs/recordings to meet certain technical standards in order to
achieve optimal playback quality. Pre-recorded DVDs
are automatically set to these standards. There are
many different types of recordable disc formats (including CD-R containing MP3 or WMA files) that require
certain pre-existing conditions (see above) to insure
compatible playback.
Customers should also note that permission is
required in order to download MP3/WMA files and
music from the Internet. Our company has no right
to grant such permission. Permission should
always be sought from the copyright owner.

Notes on JPEG Recordings
Depending on the size and number of JPEG files, it
may take several minutes for the recorder to read the
disc’s content. If you don’t see an on-screen display
after several minutes, some of the files are too big —
reduce the resolution of the JPEG files to less than 4
mega pixels and burn another disc.
The total number of files and folders are free but the
total number of files on the folder should be less than
999.
Some discs may be incompatible due to different
recording formats or the condition of the discs.
When you are using software such as “Easy CD
Creator” to burn JPEG files on a CD-R, ensure that all
selected files have the “.jpg” or “.jpeg” extension
before copying them into the CD layout.
If the files have “.jpe” extensions, please rename
them as “.jpg” or “.jpeg” files.

Title and Chapter Editing
Edits you make to the Original content changes the
actual content of the disc. For example, if you delete a
title or chapter from the Original content (Title or
Chapter), that title or chapter is deleted from the disc,
freeing up extra recording time.
When you edit the Playlist, on the other hand, you are
not changing the content of the disc. For example,
when you delete a title from the Playlist, you are just
telling the recorder not to play that title; nothing is actually deleted from the disc.
Titles, Chapters and Parts
VR
Titles in the disc’s original content contain one or more
chapters. When you insert a 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.
