otes on DVDs and Video CDs
Some playback operations of DVDs and Video CDs
may be intentionally fixed by software manufacturers.
As this unit plays DVDs and Video CDs according to
disc content designed by the software manufacturer,
some playback features of the unit may not be available
or other functions may be added.
Refer also to the instructions supplied with the DVDs
and Video CDs. Some DVDs made for business purposes may not be played on the unit.

PBC (Playback control) allows you to interact with the
contents of a Video CD using menus, search functions,
and other special operations. High resolution pictures
can be displayed if they are included on the disc.
Video CDs not equipped with PBC (Version 1.1)
Video CDs without PBC are similar to audio CDs,
except they allow playback of video as well as sound.
About DVD-R and DVD-RW disc
Is editing a DVD like editing a video tape?
How are DVD-R and DVD-RW discs different?
The essential difference between DVD-R and DVD-RW
is that DVD-R is a record-once medium, while DVD-RW
is a re-recordable/erasable medium. You can re-record/
erase a DVD-RW disc approximately 1,000 times.
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 VCR/DVD
Recorder plays the disc according to the Playlist.
Can I play my recordable discs in a regular DVD
player?
Generally, 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.
About word ‘Original’ and ‘Playlist’
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 two recording modes available using this
recorder: VR mode and Video mode. When recording to
a DVD-R disc, recordings are always in Video mode.
DVD-RW discs can be formatted for VR mode recording
or Video mode recording.
VR mode recording
• 3 different picture quality/recording time settings available (SP, LP, XP)
• Not playable on regular DVD players
• Recordings can be extensively edited
Video mode recording
• 3 different picture quality/recording time settings available (SP, LP, XP)
• Playable on regular DVD players (after finalizing)
• Limited editing features
Many functions of this recorder are dependent on the
recording mode. One or more of the symbols
( Video , VR ) appears by each function explained
in this manual so that you can see at a glance whether
it’s relevant for the disc loaded.
You can find more information on disc formats and
recording modes on next page.
ote
DVD-Video Format (Video mode) is a new format for
recording on 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 VCR/DVD Recorder in
other players.
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.
About DVD recording
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 three different kinds of DVD disc:
pre-recorded DVD-Video discs, 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
Restrictions on video recording
• The recording times shown are not exact because the
VCR/DVD Recorder 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 24 (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 Original (Title) 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).
• You cannot record copy-protected video using this
recorder. Copy-protected video includes DVD-Video
discs and some satellite broadcasts. If copy-protected
material is encountered during a recording, recording
will pause or stop automatically and an error message
will be displayed on-screen.
• Video that is ‘copy-once only’ can only be recorded
using a DVD-RW disc in VR mode with CPRM (see
below).
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.
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.

time and date: the Auto Clock Feature or manually. The
Auto Clock Feature enables the VCR/DVD Recorder to
set up the clock when the VCR/DVD Recorder is turned
off.
The Clock Set feature is set to Auto at the factory. In the
“Auto” setting, the VCR/DVD Recorder looks for a channel carrying XDS (Extended Data Services) information.
XDS updates the clock using the Coordinated Universal
Time.

AUDIO
Each DVD disc has a variety of audio output options.
Set the VCR/DVD Recorder’s Audio Output according to
the type of audio system you use.
Dolby Digital
PCM: Select when connected to a 2-channel digital stereo
amplifier. The VCR/DVD Recorder’s digital audio outputs
sounds in the PCM 2ch format when you play a DVD video
disc recorded on the Dolby Digital recording system.
Bitstream: Select when connected to a Dolby Digital
decoder (or an amplifier or other equipment with a
Dolby Digital decoder).
If your receiver or amplifier is NOT capable of handling
96 kHz signals, select 48 kHz. When this choice is
made, this VCR/DVD Recorder will automatically convert any 96 kHz signals to 48 kHz so your system can
decode them.
If your receiver or amplifier is capable of handling
96 kHz signals, select 96 kHz. When this choice is
made, this unit will pass each type of signal through
without any further processing.

Notes on MP3 Recordings
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 VCR/DVD Recorder can not read an MP3 file
that has a file extension other than “.mp3”.
MP3 Disc compatibility with this recorder is
limited as follows:
1. CD-R/RW physical format should be “ISO 9660” and
“JOLIET”.
2. If you record MP3 files using the software which
cannot create a FILE SYSTEM, for example “DirectCD” etc., it is impossible to playback MP3 files. We
recommend that you use “Easy-CD Creator”, which
creates an ISO9660 or JOLIET file system.
3. 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 1999.
This VCR/DVD Recorder 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 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 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 Files
Depending on the size and number of the JPEG files,
it could take a long time for the DVD player 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 megapixels and burn another disc.
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 1999.
Some discs may be incompatible due to different
recording format or condition of the disc.
When you are using software such as “Easy CD
Creator” to burn jpeg files on a CD-R, ensure that all
the selected files have the “.jpg” extension before
copying into the CD layout.
If the files have “.jpe” or “.jpeg” extensions, please
rename them as “.jpg” files.
File names without “.jpg” extension will not be able to
be read by this VCR/DVD Recorder, even though the
files are shown as JPEG image files in Windows
Explorer.
On CDs with mixed content (audio tracks, MP3 files
and JPEG files), you can select among the AUDIO
CD menu, MP3 CD menu, and Photo CD menu by
pressing TITLE repeatedly in Stop mode.

What is DV?
DV-Related Messages
Using DV, also known as i.LINK, you can connect a
DV-equipped camcorder to this recorder using a single
DV cable for input and output of audio, video, data and
control signals.
The i.LINK interface is also known as IEEE 1394-1995.
“i.LINK” and the “i.LINK” logo are trademarks.
• This recorder is only compatible with DV-format
(DVC-SD) camcorders. Digital satellite tuners and
Digital VHS video recorders are not compatible.
• You cannot connect more than one DV camcorder at
a time to this recorder.
• You cannot control this recorder from external equipment connected via the DV IN jack (including two
DVD Recorders).
• It may not always be possible to control the connected camcorder via the DV IN jack.
• Digital camcorders can usually record audio as stereo
16-bit/48kHz, or twin stereo tracks of 12-bit/32kHz.
The VCR/DVD Recorder can only record one stereo
audio track. Set DV Record Audio to Audio 1 or Audio
2 as necessary (see page 24).
• Audio input to the DV IN jack should be 32 or 48kHz
(not 44.1kHz).
• Picture disturbance on the recording may occur if the
source component pauses playback or plays an
unrecorded section of tape, or if the power fails in the
source component, or the DV cable becomes disconnected.
• If DV Rec Audio is set to Audio 2, but no Audio 2 signal is present, DV Audio will be reset to Audio 1 automatically.
You may see the following messages appear on your
TV screen when using the DV IN jack.
Camcorder not connected
The camcorder is not connected properly, or the camcorder is switched off.
Too many devices connected
The DV jack on this recorder supports connection to
just one camcorder.
Check tape
There is no cassette loaded into the connected equipment.
Uncontrollable device
The VCR/DVD Recorder cannot control the camcorder.
Updating device information
Camcorder is updating information for DV.
Camera Mode
Camcorder is set to camera mode.
Troubleshooting
If you cannot get a picture and/or audio through the DV
IN jack, check the following:
• Make sure the DV cable is properly connected.
• Try switching off the connected equipment, then
switch it back on.
• Try switching the audio input.

RECORDING
Recording from an External Input (Continued)
VR Mode: Original and Playlist 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.
Adding Chapter Markers
Chapter
You can put a chapter marker anywhere in a Playlist or
Original title during recording or playback.
Once the chapter is marked, you can use the Chapter
Search feature, as well as Erase, combine and move

Use this function to add an Original title or chapter to
the Playlist. When you do this, the whole title is put into
the Playlist (you can delete bits you don’t need later —
see Deleting an Original or Playlist Title/Chapter on
page 48).
The title appears in the Playlist complete with the chapter markers that appear in the Original. However, if you
add more chapter markers to the Original later, these
are not automatically copied over into the Playlist title.
You can add up to 999 chapters to one disc . If you only
want to add a chapter of a title, use the Adding a
title/chapter to the Playlist on this page.
