Operating Environment
Operating environment temperature and humidity:
+5 ºC to +35 ºC (+41 ºF to +95 ºF); less than 85 %RH
(cooling vents not blocked)
Do not install this unit in a poorly ventilated area, or in
locations exposed to high humidity or direct sunlight (or
D3-4-2-1-7c_A_En
strong artificial light)
VENTILATION CAUTION
When installing this unit, make sure to leave space
around the unit for ventilation to improve heat
radiation (at least 10 cm at top, 10 cm at rear, and
10 cm at each side).
CAUTION
The STANDBY/ON switch on this unit will not
completely shut off all power from the AC outlet.
Since the power cord serves as the main disconnect
device for the unit, you will need to unplug it from
the AC outlet to shut down all power. Therefore,
make sure the unit has been installed so that the
power cord can be easily unplugged from the AC
outlet in case of an accident. To avoid fire hazard,
the power cord should also be unplugged from the
AC outlet when left unused for a long period of time
D3-4-2-2-2a_A_En
(for example, when on vacation).
WARNING
Slots and openings in the cabinet are provided for
ventilation to ensure reliable operation of the
product, and to protect it from overheating. To
prevent fire hazard, the openings should never be
blocked or covered with items (such as newspapers,
table-cloths, curtains) or by operating the
D3-4-2-1-7b_A_En
equipment on thick carpet or a bed.
This product is for general household purposes. Any
failure due to use for other than household purposes
(such as long-term use for business purposes in a
restaurant or use in a car or ship) and which
requires repair will be charged for even during the
warranty period.

POWER-CORD CAUTION
If the AC plug of this unit does not match the AC
outlet you want to use, the plug must be removed
and appropriate one fitted. Replacement and
mounting of an AC plug on the power supply cord of
this unit should be performed only by qualified
service personnel. If connected to an AC outlet, the
cut-off plug can cause severe electrical shock. Make
sure it is properly disposed of after removal.
The equipment should be disconnected by removing
the mains plug from the wall socket when left
unused for a long period of time (for example, when
D3-4-2-2-1a_A_En
on vacation).
Handle the power cord by the plug. Do not pull out the
plug by tugging the cord and never touch the power
cord when your hands are wet as this could cause a
short circuit or electric shock. Do not place the unit, a
piece of furniture, etc., on the power cord, or pinch the
cord. Never make a knot in the cord or tie it with other
cords. The power cords should be routed such that they
are not likely to be stepped on. A damaged power cord
can cause a fire or give you an electrical shock. Check
the power cord once in a while. When you find it
damaged, ask your nearest PIONEER authorized
service center or your dealer for a replacement. S002_En
Replacement and mounting of an AC plug on the power supply cord of this unit should be performed only by qualified
service personnel.
IMPORTANT: THE MOULDED PLUG
This appliance is supplied with a moulded three pin mains plug for your safety and convenience. A 5 amp fuse is fitted in this plug. Should the
fuse need to be replaced, please ensure that the replacement fuse has a rating of 5 amps and that it is approved by ASTA or BSI to BS1362.
Check for the ASTA mark
or the BSI mark
on the body of the fuse.
If the plug contains a removable fuse cover, you must ensure that it is refitted when the fuse is replaced. If you lose the fuse cover the plug
must not be used until a replacement cover is obtained. A replacement fuse cover can be obtained from your local dealer.
If the fitted moulded plug is unsuitable for your socket outlet, then the fuse shall be removed and the plug cut off and disposed of
safely. There is a danger of severe electrical shock if the cut off plug is inserted into any 13 amp socket.
If a new plug is to be fitted, please observe the wiring code as shown below. If in any doubt, please consult a qualified electrician.
WARNING : THIS APPARATUS MUST BE EARTHED.
IMPORTANT: The wires in this mains lead are coloured in accordance with the following code:
Green & Yellow : Earth Blue : Neutral
Brown : Live
As the colours of the wires in the mains lead of this appliance may not correspond with the coloured markings identifying the terminals in
your plug, proceed as follows ;
The wire which is coloured GREEN-AND-YELLOW must be connected to the terminal in the plug which is marked with the letter E or
by the earth symbol
or coloured GREEN or GREEN-AND-YELLOW.
The wire which is coloured BLUE must be connected to the terminal which is marked with the
letter N or coloured BLACK.
The wire which is coloured BROWN must be connected to the terminal which is marked with the
letter L or coloured RED.
How to replace the fuse: Open the fuse compartment with a screwdriver and replace the fuse.

Using DVD-R DL/DVD+R DL discs
DVD-R DL (Dual-Layer) and DVD+R DL
(Double-Layer) discs contain two recordable
layers on a single side, giving about 1.8
times the recording capacity of a
conventional single-layer disc. This unit can
record to both DVD-R DL and DVD+R DL
discs.
• If you intend to play DVD-R DL (Video
mode) or DVD+R DL discs recorded on
this unit on other DVD recorders/players,
you must finalize them. (Note that some
DVD recorders/players may not play
even finalized DL discs.)
• Please read the information provided on
the disc packaging carefully before
purchasing DVD-R DL/DVD+R DL discs:
• Confirm the disc version: Use ver. 3.0 /
2x to 4x DVD-R discs.
• Confirm the recording speed: DVD-R
should be compatible with 2x or 4x
recording; DVD+R with 2.4x to 8x
recording.
• This logo indicates that the disc is a
DVD-R DL or DVD+R DL disc:

DivX® VOD content
DivX
In order to play DivX VOD (video on demand)

content provider. You do this by generating a
DivX VOD registration code, which you
submit to your provider.
Some DivX VOD content may only be
playable a fixed number of times. When you
load a disc containing this type of DivX VOD
content, the remaining number of plays is
shown on-screen and you then have the
option of playing the disc (thereby using up
one of the remaining plays), or stopping. If
you load a disc that contains expired DivX
VOD content (for example, content that has
zero remaining plays), the message Rental
Expired is displayed.
If your DivX VOD content allows an unlimited
number of plays, then you may load the disc
into your recorder and play the content as
often as you like, and no message will be
displayed.

About the internal/external
hard disk drive
The hard disk drive (internal or external
HDD) is a fragile piece of equipment.
Depending on the conditions under which it
is used, or through careless use, it is
possible that the recorded contents will be
damaged or lost completely, or that normal
playback and recording will not be possible.
Please understand that in the event of repair
or replacement of the HDD or related
components, all your HDD recordings will be
lost.
12
En
Please use the recorder following the
guidelines below to protect against possible
HDD failure.
The HDD should not be regarded as a place to
store recordings permanently. We
recommend that you back up your important
recordings onto DVD discs in order to protect
against accidental loss.
Pioneer cannot under any circumstances
accept responsibility for any direct or indirect
loss arising from any inconvenience or loss of
recorded material resulting from HDD failure.
• Do not move the recorder while it is on
(this includes during EPG download
when the display shows EPG).
• Install and use the recorder on a stable,
level surface.
• Do not block the rear vent/cooling fan.
• Do not use the recorder in excessively
hot or humid places, or in places that
may be subject to sudden changes in
temperature. Sudden changes in
temperature can cause condensation to
form inside the recorder. This can be a
cause of HDD failure.
• While the recorder is switched on
(including during EPG download when
the display shows EPG), do not unplug
from the wall socket or switch the
electricity off from the breaker switch.
• Do not move the recorder immediately
after switching it off. If you need to move
the recorder, please follow the steps
below:
1 After the message POWER OFF is
shown in the display, wait at least two
minutes.
2 Unplug from the wall socket.
3 Move the recorder.
• If there’s a power failure while the
recorder is on there is a chance that
some data on the HDD will be lost.
DVR940HX_UK_EN.book 13 ページ 2006年7月12日 水曜日 午後4時5分
Before you start
• The HDD is very delicate. If used
improperly or in an unsuitable
environment, it is possible that the HDD
will fail after a few years of use. Signs of
problems include playback unexpectedly
freezing and noticeable block noise
(mosaic) in the picture. However,
sometimes there will be no warning
signs of HDD failure. If the HDD fails, no
playback of recorded material will be
possible. In this case it will be necessary
to replace the HDD unit.

To enjoy multichannel surround sound you
need to connect this recorder to an AV
amplifier/receiver using the digital coaxial
output.
In addition to a digital connection, we
recommend also connecting using the
stereo analog connection for compatibility
with all discs and sources.
You’ll probably also want to connect a video
output to your AV amplifier/receiver. Use the
ordinary video output (as shown here), or the
S-video output.
Important
• Noise may be output from your speakers
if the recorder is not set up to work with
your AV amplifier/receiver properly (see
Audio Out on page 143).
• When watching D.TV only linear PCM
audio is output from the coaxial digital
out jack.
• Do not connect this recorder to your TV
‘through’ your VCR using A/V cables.
Always connect it directly to your TV.

compatible with Linear PCM, the signal
is output as Linear PCM (DTS audio is
not output).
• If you have connected to a Pioneer
plasma display, please select the HDMI
setup on the display (refer to the
supplied manual for more on this).
Note
1 This unit has been designed to be compliant with HDMI (High Definition Multimedia Interface) version 1.2a and
HDCP version 1.1. Depending on the component you have connected, using a DVI connection may result in
unreliable signal transfers.
2 The pixel resolution of this recorder’s HDMI video output is (according to TV format): NTSC (720 x 480i/p, 1280
x 720p, 1920 x 1080i, DVR-940HX-S only: 1920 x 1080p) and PAL (720 x 576i/p, 1280 x 720p, 1920 x 1080i,
DVR-940HX-S only: 1920 x 1080p). If your display is not compatible with these resolutions the picture may not be

About HDMI
HDMI (High Definition Multimedia Interface)
supports both video and audio on a single
digital connection for use with DVD players
and recorders, DTV, set-top boxes, and other
AV devices. HDMI was developed to provide
the technologies of High Bandwidth Digital
Content Protection (HDCP) as well as Digital
Visual Interface (DVI) in one specification.
HDCP is used to protect digital content
transmitted and received by DVI-compliant
displays.
HDMI has the capability to support standard, enhanced, or high-definition video plus
standard to multi-channel surround-sound
audio. HDMI features include uncompressed digital video, a bandwidth of up to 5
gigabits per second (Dual Link), one
connector (instead of several cables and
connectors), and communication between
the AV source and AV devices such as DTVs.
HDMI, the HDMI logo and High-Definition
Multimedia Interface are trademarks or registered trademarks of HDMI licensing LLC.

Display the GUIDE Plus+ setup
menu.
This section is only applicable if you chose to
use the GUIDE Plus+ system as the EPG type
in step 10 of the Setup Navigator above.
The GUIDE Plus+® system is a free,
interactive on-screen television
programming guide. The system offers
program listings for all major channels, onetouch recording, search by genre,
recommendations according to your profile
and more.
For the GUIDE Plus+ system to function
correctly, it is important that you set the
language and country correctly in the Setup
Navigator, and that you have performed a
scan for available channels, as these are all
used by the GUIDE Plus+ system. If any of
these things are not yet set, please run the
Setup Navigator first (see Switching on and
setting up on page 36).
TV listings information is received via ‘host
channels’. In order to receive the correct TV
listings information for your country or
region you need to set up the GUIDE Plus+
system and ‘download’ the TV listings
information. The initial download can take
up to 24 hours, but once this is done, all
future updates are automatic.

code.
Enter your postal
The system uses your postal code to identify
which TV listings data is correct for the area
in which you live, so it is important that you
enter it correctly.
4 If you are using an external receiver
(such as a satellite receiver) with the
supplied G-LINK cable, complete this
step, otherwise jump to step 5 below.
• Select your reception method
(Terrestrial, Cable or Satellite).
• Select your provider (if applicable).
• Select the brand of your external
receiver.
• Identify which input your external
receiver is connected to.
After completing these steps the recorder
will try and communicate with your external
receiver and change the channel via the GLINK cable. If the channel was successfully
changed, select Yes to confirm.
If the channel did not change, select No. The
GUIDE Plus+ system will try other codes
assigned to your external receiver. If none of
the codes changes the channel
successfully, tune your external receiver to
the host channel for your country (refer to
step 5 below) and leave it on overnight. The
recorder needs to be in standby; it will wake
up automatically and download new codes
from the host channel. The next day, try this
setup process again:
• Press GUIDE to display the GUIDE
Plus+ screen.
• Press to highlight the Menu bar, then
use to reach the Setup area and
select Setup.
• Continue setting up from the start of this
step again.
If your external receiver still doesn’t respond
to the G-LINK controller, please call
customer support and report the brand and
model of your external receiver.
See also GUIDE Plus+ FAQ and
troubleshooting on page 59.
• See Connecting to a cable box or satellite
receiver on page 19 for more on using the
supplied G-LINK cable.
• Select External Receiver 1, 2 or 3, then
press ENTER. (If you have just one
external receiver, use External Receiver
1. You can add further receivers in 2 and
3 if you need to.)
5 Identify the host channel for your
country.
The TV listings information available in the
GUIDE Plus+ system is distributed
throughout Europe by selected broadcasters
called host channels. It is important that the
host (analog) channel for your country is
correctly identified in order to receive
listings information (EPG download).

About EPG download
• EPG data can only be received when the
recorder is in standby. (When not using
the recorder, therefore, please switch it
into standby.) If you’re using an external
receiver, leave this on when EPG data is
downloading.
• If you cannot receive any of the host
channels (see the above table) then you
won’t be able to use the GUIDE Plus+
system. In this case do not set the postal
code (or set Country to Other) in the
GUIDE Plus+ setup screen. (When
GUIDE Plus+ service starts in your area,
set the postal code again.)
If digital broadcasts start in your area,
please set the EPG Type Select setting in
the Initial Setup menu to Digital EPG.
• Even if you can’t use the EPG functions
where you live, you can still set VIDEO
Plus+ timer recordings and manual
recordings — see Setting a manual
recording on page 54.
• The front panel display shows EPG when
receiving data. If you power on the
recorder during an EPG download, the
download is canceled.
• EPG data may be received several times
a day. All updates are automatic.
• When downloading EPG data, the
recorder may sound as though it is on.
This is normal.

You should see a grid filled with channel
logos and TV listings information. Use the

that there are channels missing, or that
there are channels in the list that you don’t
get, go to the Editor screen:
• Press repeatedly until the Menu bar is
highlighted.
• Press until Editor is highlighted. The
main area of the screen now shows a list
of channels. Those that are turned ON
are displayed in the grid; those that are
OFF are hidden. Use the ///
buttons to move down the list and turn
channels ON or OFF as necessary.
• For any channel that you turn ON, the
GUIDE Plus+ system will need to know
how it is received (the source) and on
which program number. The source may
be the built-in tuner of this recorder, or
an external receiver. The program
number is the number on which the
channel can be found on its receiving
device/source. The entry in the Editor
screen must match this number for
correct recording of that channel.
• The above is especially important for the
‘host channel’. Please make sure that
the host channel is always switched ON.
Change the program
numbers as you like.
Changing the program numbers allows you
to decide the order in which the channels
change when stepping through them
sequentially. You can do this to group
certain channels together, for example.

About timer recording
Using the timer recording features you can
program up to 32 timer recordings up to a
month in advance. Timer recording
programs can be set to record just once,
every day, or every week.
You can set the recording quality for your
timer recording in the same way as for a
regular recording, but with the added option
of an AUTO mode, which maximizes the
recording quality for the space available on
the disc (if recording to DVD), or to fit on to a
blank DVD disc (if recording to the (internal)
HDD).
You can set timer recordings to record to a
recordable DVD or to the hard disk drive. For
regular (daily or weekly) HDD timer
recordings that you don’t need to keep, you
can use the Auto Replace Recording
feature1 to automatically replace the
previous timer recording with the new one.
Note that when you use this feature, the
previous recording made on that timer
program will be replaced by the next one,
regardless of whether you have watched it
yet or not.
You can also set the recorder so that it will
adjust the recording quality to try and fit the
recording on to the disc if it would not
otherwise fit at the recording quality you set
(see Optimized Rec on page 145 for more on
this).
Finally, if you set a timer recording to record
to DVD but there isn’t a recordable DVD
loaded at the time of the recording, the
Recovery Recording feature will
automatically record the program to the
HDD for you. DVR-940HX-S: If the recording
destination is the external HDD but at the
time of recording the external HDD is not
connected, the internal HDD will be used for
the recording. During high-speed copying,
the recording destination may also be
changed automatically.
05
This recorder is compatible with VPS (Video
Programming System) and PDC (Program
Delivery Control) systems used by many
analog TV stations to ensure that a timer
recording catches the whole program even
when the program is not running to
schedule. Up to eight timer programs can be
set with VPS/PDC on.
Important
• A timer recording can’t be set if there are
already 32 timer programs waiting to be
recorded.
• Timer recording will not start if:
– The recorder is already recording.
– A disc is being initialized, finalized or
unfinalized.
• Timer recording will start when the
operation preventing timer recording
has finished.
• The timer indicator ( ) lights in the front
panel display when the timer is active. If
the indicator is blinking it means that
(for a DVD timer recording) there is no
disc loaded, or the disc loaded is not
recordable (for an HDD timer recording
it means that the HDD is not recordable).
DVR-940HX-S: If the timer is set to record
to the external HDD, but the external
HDD is not recordable, the timer
indicator does not blink to warn of this.
• Approximately two minutes before a
timer recording is set to start, the
recorder will go into timer recording
standby. In timer recording standby you
cannot use some functions.
• The maximum length for timer
recordings made to the HDD is 24 hours.
However, because one title (HDD) is
limited to 12 hours, recordings over 12
hours will be spread over two titles. Note
that there will be a break in the recording
of a few seconds between titles.
Note
1 DVR-940HX-S: Auto Replace Recording is always to the internal HDD (HDD1).

• VPS/PDC works only with analog
stations; it does not work with digital TV
stations.
• VPS/PDC may not work with all
broadcast stations in your country/area.
Check with the stations for compatibility.
• The hours between 3:00 and 5:00 in the
morning are used by the GUIDE Plus+
system to download program
information. During these times, VPS/
PDC may not work reliably; leave VPS/
PDC off if you set a timer recording for
these times.

Frequently Asked Questions
• Even though the timer is set, the recorder
doesn’t start recording!
Check that the disc loaded or HDD is
recordable, not locked (see Lock Disc on
page 130), and that there are fewer than
99/999 titles already on the DVD/HDD.
You can also use the Editor Area if new
channels become available in your area, or if
you change from cable to satellite, say, or
move house.
From the Editor Area you can:
• Display/hide channels in the grid (switch
the channel on/off).
• Select a channel source (A.TV, D.TV,
Ext. Rec. 1, Ext. Rec. 2, etc.).
• Enter a channel program number.
• The recorder won’t let me enter a timer
program! Why not?
You can’t enter a timer program if the
clock isn’t set.
• What happens when two or more timer
programs overlap?
Basically, the program with the earlier
recording start time has priority.
However, the recorder will start
recording the program with the later
start time after the earlier program is
finished. If two programs have the same
times (but different channels, for
example), the program set most recently
takes priority.
If VPS/PDC is active for two timer
programs that are programmed to start
at the same time, then the program that
actually starts first takes priority.
The Info Area
This area is reserved for additional
information such as news, weather reports,
stock quotes, and so on, and varies by

This FAQ covers only a few questions. For a
complete list please consult the GUIDE
Plus+ website at:
www.europe.guideplus.com
FAQ
• When I tried setting up my external
receiver I could not get any of the
attempts to work, what should I do?
A: There could be several reasons why
your external receiver could not be
controlled.
– The connections could be wrong. Make
sure that the G-LINK cable is connected
to the G-LINK connector on the recorder
and the IR blaster is in front of the
external receiver, pointing towards the
IR receiver of your external receiver. See
Connecting to a cable box or satellite
receiver on page 19.
– The code that is listed under your
brand could be wrong. Please try other
codes for your brand under satellite,
cable or terrestrial. Go to the Setup Area
and choose one of the three options
(cable, satellite or terrestrial) that you
have not already tried. Follow the onscreen prompts to make sure that the
GUIDE Plus+ system can change
channels on your external receiver. If it
does not work, repeat the process,
choosing different reception and
external receiver combinations until you
have tried all the codes for your brand of
receiver that are already in the GUIDE
Plus+ system. If it still does not work,
see below on how to receive new codes
overnight.
– The unit has not yet received new
codes. The nightly data downloads
frequently include new codes for
controlling external receivers. Please
tune your external receiver to your local

Switch this recorder into standby. The
next morning, please perform the GUIDE
Plus+ setup again to see if your external
receiver can now be controlled.
– The external receiver that you use is
currently not supported. If, after leaving
your external receiver on overnight, and
doing the Reception and External
Receiver Setup again, it still does not
respond, please call Customer Support
to report your brand and model.
• My external receiver was successfully
setup. However I have found that when
the GUIDE Plus+ system has to change
to a channel with a 3-digit program
number in the external receiver's preset, it
does not work. It looks like the GUIDE
Plus+ system can only send two digits.
With the number of channels
increasing, the number of digits has
increased as well. While older boxes use
only 2 digits, newer boxes require up to 4.
It is possible that you selected an older
code for your brand during set-up.
Please access the Setup Area, select
External Receiver and repeat the setup
for your brand (Note: Every time you see
the on-screen question about whether
the receiver has changed to a certain
channel, the GUIDE Plus+ system has
sent a different code). Try all the different
codes until your GUIDE Plus+ system
can control your external receiver
correctly. If you have no success, try to
receive new codes overnight.
• I used to receive data through my
terrestrial antenna or analog cable
without a set-top box. Now, I have
“upgraded” to a satellite system or to
digital cable with external receiver. What
should I do to receive data for the GUIDE
Plus+ system?
60
En
You can try to receive your host channel
through your new reception method. If
you have problems to receive data we
recommend that you keep your analog
terrestrial or cable connection only to
receive data this way. It is important that
you identify your host channel correctly
in the Editor Area.
• After I performed the initial set-up I found
that the line-up for all the channels
received via the external set top box is
incorrect. How do I correct this?
You can change the line-up in the editor
according to your preferences. Access
the Editor Area. Select the channels that
you would like to change. Change the
source and preset number according to
your preferences.
• I performed the set-up but after many
hours I still have a blank EPG what is
going wrong?
There are several possibilities:
– Connections are wrong. See
Connecting up on page 14 to double
check everything.
– The initial setup of GUIDE Plus+ was
completed incorrectly. Try setting it up
again (see Setting up the GUIDE Plus+®
system on page 40).
– Your cabling and setup is OK, but the
recorder has not been connected for
enough time to receive the TV listings
data. Leave the recorder in standby
overnight.
– For external receiver users only: The
connections and setup are OK, but the
external receiver was not tuned to the
correct host channel. Check the list of
host channels (see step 5 of Setting up
the GUIDE Plus+® system on page 40)
and leave the recorder in standby and
the external receiver on overnight tuned
to the correct host channel.
– You live in a country/region where the
GUIDE Plus+ system is not yet available.
Check the list of countries to see if you
are in a region that is supported.

• I used the One-Button-Record feature (red
Action button) to set a recording, but I
recorded the wrong channel.
If the channel to be recorded is received
via the external receiver first make sure
that the external receiver was left
switched on. Next, in the Editor Area,
make sure that the channel to be
recorded is correctly set: Access the
Editor Area. Check the source and
program number of the channel that you
wanted to record. Change the source
and preset numbers if incorrect.

• The automatic Host Channel search
failed or the GUIDE Plus+ system
identified the wrong Host Channel for my
region.
You can identify your Host Channel
manually. See Manual Host Channel
setup on page 59 for how to do this.
If you are recording from the recorder’s
internal tuner (the A.TV or D.TV
setting), make sure that the program
number is the same as the preset
number set on this recorder. If they are
different, go to the Editor Area and
change the program number to match
the recorder’s preset number.
• The TV listings information doesn’t
update.
The latest TV listings information is
automatically downloaded by the
recorder overnight. This only happens if
the recorder is in standby; if the recorder
is left on, it will not download. When not
using the recorder, please switch it into
standby.
Data downloads can take several hours.
The front panel display shows EPG when
downloading. If you switch the recorder
on while EPG is displayed, the download
will be canceled.
• The GUIDE Plus+ system is not
supported in my area, but when I switch
the recorder into standby, after a while the
front panel display shows EPG. Can I stop
this from happening?
If the GUIDE Plus+ system is not
supported in your area, please do not set
the postal code in the GUIDE Plus+
setup (see Setting up the GUIDE Plus+®
system on page 40). When the GUIDE
Plus+ service starts in your area, please
set the postal code again.

About DVD recording
Important
• The table below shows the maximum
number of titles recordable per disc and
the maximum number of chapters per
title:
This recorder can record to DVD-R, DVDRW, DVD+R, DVD+RW, DVD-RAM, DVD-R
DL and DVD+R DL media.
DVD-R and DVD-RW discs can be initialized
for Video mode or VR mode recording. Each
has its advantages, and it depends on what
you want to do with the recording which
mode you choose.
If you want to edit your recordings in any
significant way, VR mode offers greater
possibilities for cutting, copying, and
changing the way the video is presented.
Video mode is less flexible when it comes to
editing, but it has the advantage that it is
compatible with standard DVD players
(many of which won’t play VR mode discs1).
Once a disc is initialized for a particular
mode, all recording on that disc will be in
that mode.
DVD+RW discs can be initialized for +VR
mode recording.
DVD-RAM discs can be initialized for VR
mode recording.
DVD+R discs do not require initializing.

• This recorder cannot play or record
unfinalized Video mode and DVD+R
discs recorded on another recorder.
DVD+RW discs recorded on another
recorder are playable on this recorder
but are not recordable.
• The maximum continuous recording
time for one title is eight hours when
using a DVD+R/+RW disc.
• If you delete a title from a DVD+R/+RW
disc, the total number of recordable
titles remaining may not increase.
• Although this recorder can record PAL,
SECAM, NTSC and PAL-60, you can’t mix
multiple TV line systems on one disc. A
disc can contain PAL and SECAM
recordings, or NTSC and PAL-60. See
also Additional information about the TV
system settings on page 150.
Note
1 Some DVD players, such as some Pioneer models, are compatible with VR mode discs. Check the operating
instructions for your player for VR mode compatibility information.
DVR940HX_UK_EN.book 67 ページ 2006年7月12日 水曜日 午後4時5分
Recording
• Fingerprints, dirt and small scratches on
a disc can affect playback and/or
recording performance. Please take
proper care of your discs.
• Pioneer takes no responsibility for
recording failure due to power cuts,
defective discs, or damage to the
recorder.
• See also Disc / content format playback
compatibility on page 7 for detailed disc
compatibility information.
Recording to DVD-R DL/DVD+R DL
discs
Recording to DVD-R DL/DVD+R DL discs is
generally the same as recording to regular
single-layer discs; however, please note the
following points:
• When the recorder switches from the
first layer to the second during recording
a DVD-R DL (Video mode) disc, a new
title is automatically started on the new
layer.
• Up to 99 titles can be recorded on a
DVD-R DL (Video mode) disc. If the 99th
title is being recorded when the layer is
switched, recording will stop.
• Up to 49 titles can be recorded on a
DVD+R DL disc.
• You cannot play, record additional
material to, edit or finalize a DVD-R DL or
DVD+R DL disc that has been recorded
on but not yet finalized on another DVD
recorder.
About HDD recording
Recording to the hard disk drive (HDD) is
very flexible; you have the full choice of
recording quality options, including manual
mode, and of course you can record, erase
and re-record as many times as you like.
07
The capacity of the hard disk drive means
that you can store many hours of video on it,
even using the higher quality recording
modes.
Important
• The maximum number of titles/chapters
per title that can be recorded on the
HDD is 9991 and 99 respectively. No
more recording is possible on the HDD
after the maximum number of titles has
been reached.
• The maximum continuous recording
time for one title is 12 hours.
• It is possible to record both PAL and
NTSC titles on the HDD. Before
recording, you need to make sure that
the Input Line System setting (page 150)
matches the TV line system of the source
you’re recording.
HDD Video mode compatibility
When recording to the HDD you can choose
to record in one of two formats. Set the
format from the HDD Recording Format
item in the Initial Setup menu (see
page 146).
When set to Video Mode On, high-speed
copying from HDD to Video mode DVD-R/RW or DVD+R/+RW is possible. When
recording a bilingual broadcast, set which
channel you want to record from the Initial
Setup menu (see Bilingual Recording on
page 142).
When HDD Recording Format is set to Video
Mode Off, high-speed copying isn’t possible.
However, both channels of bilingual
broadcasts are recorded and you can switch
the audio on playback.
Note
1 DVR-940HX-S only: The same limits apply to the external HDD.

Recorded audio
In all except the LPCM mode, sound is
recorded in two channel Dolby Digital format
(only Dolby Digital 2.0 can be recorded; Dolby
Digital 5.1 recording is not possible). When
set to LPCM, sound is recorded in high
quality, uncompressed Linear PCM format.
If the broadcast audio is bilingual and you
are recording to Video mode DVD-R/-RW,
DVD+R/+RW, or to the HDD with the HDD
Recording Format set to Video Mode On, or
on the LPCM setting, use the Bilingual
Recording setting (page 142) to select the
A/L or B/R audio channel to record before
recording starts. In other cases, both
channels of a bilingual broadcast will be
recorded and you can switch on playback.
Restrictions on video
recording
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 automatically and an error
message will be displayed on-screen.
Video that is ‘copy-once only’ can only be
recorded to HDD, CPRM-compatible VR
mode DVD-R/-RW (see below), or DVD-RAM.
When recording a TV broadcast or through
an external input, you can display copy
control information on screen. (see
Displaying disc information on-screen on
page 93).

En
CPRM
CPRM is a copy protection/scrambling
system developed for 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 CPRMcompatible DVD-R (ver. 2.0 / 8x or higher) or
DVD-RW (ver. 1.1 or higher) discs formatted
in VR mode, DVD-RAM discs or on the HDD.
DVD CPRM recordings can only be played
on players that are specifically compatible
with CPRM.

available, which allow you to choose a
balance between picture quality and
recording time.
When Manual Recording is set to On (see
Manual Recording on page 145), a further
option will be available (MN1 to MN32 or
LPCM, depending on what you set).
• SEP (Super Extended Play) – Lowest
video quality but gives about ten hours of
recording time on a DVD disc.
• MN1 to MN32 / LPCM1 – Manual /
Linear PCM (available only when manual
recording is on)
The setting is indicated in the front panel
display, and shown on-screen together with
the recording time for a blank recordable
disc. If a recordable disc is loaded, the
approximate remaining recording time for
that disc is also shown. (Note that if the On
Screen Display setting (see On Screen
Display on page 149) is Off then this
information is not displayed.)
When recording to DVD+R/+RW, SLP is the

Most regular DVD players can play finalized
discs recorded in Video mode and DVD+R
discs. A number of players (including many
Pioneer models) can also play DVD-RW
discs recorded in VR mode, finalized or not.
Most players will not play VR mode DVD-R
discs, although some DVD-ROM drives and
DVD recorders may be able to (finalization
might be necessary). Check the manual that
came with the player to check what kinds of
discs it will play.
When you finalize a Video mode or DVD+R
disc, a title menu is created from which you
can select titles when you play the disc.
There are a number of different styles of title
menu to choose from to suit the content of
the disc.
All the title menus are navigated in the usual
way, pressing MENU or TOP MENU to
display the menu, then using the ///
followed by ENTER to select titles and
start playback.

Finalizing ‘fixes’ the recordings on the disc
so that it can be played on a regular DVD
player or computer equipped with a suitable
DVD-ROM drive.1
2 HOME MENU Select ‘Disc Setup’ from the
Home Menu.
Note that the disc name will appear in the
title menu after you finalize a disc. Make sure
the disc name is as you want it before you
finalize the disc as it can’t be changed
afterwards. If you want to rename the disc,
see Input Disc Name on page 130 before
starting the steps below.

Select ‘Finalize’ > ‘Finalize’ >
‘Next Screen’.
DVD+RW discs don’t generally need
finalizing. However, if you want a title menu
to appear when you play the disc, then you
will need to finalize. When using a
DVD+RW, you can still record and edit even
after finalizing. although the title menu will
disappear if you do so. Finalize the disc
again to generate a new title menu.
Important
• Once you’ve finalized a Video mode or
DVD+R disc, you can’t edit or record
anything else on that disc. However, the
finalization on a DVD-RW disc maybe
‘undone’; see Undo Finalize on page 131
for how to do this.
• A VR mode DVD-R/-RW (excluding DVDR DL) disc can still be recorded and
edited on this recorder even after
finalizing.
• Video mode DVD-R DL discs and
DVD+R DL discs must be finalized in
order to play in other recorders/players.

press ENTER to cancel. Around four
minutes before completion, the option to
cancel disappears.
• You can’t cancel the finalization of a VR

the type of disc, how much is recorded
on the disc and the number of titles on
the disc. A disc recorded in VR mode can
take up to one hour to finalize. Video

About DV
Using DV, also known as i.LINK or IEEE 13941995, you can connect a DV camcorder to
this recorder using a DV cable for input of
audio, video, data and control signals.
“i.LINK” and the “i.LINK” logo are
trademarks.
• This recorder is only compatible with DVformat (DVC-SD) camcorders. Digital
satellite receivers 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.
• It may not always be possible to control
the connected camcorder via the DV IN
jack.
• DV camcorders can usually record audio
as stereo 16-bit / 48 kHz, or twin stereo
tracks of 12-bit / 32 kHz. This recorder
can only record one stereo audio track.
Set the DV Input setting as required
(see DV Input on page 143).
• Audio input to the DV IN jack should be
32 kHz or 48 kHz (not 44.1 kHz).
• Picture disturbance in 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 is
disconnected.
• The DV IN jack is an input only. There is
no output functionality.
Note
1 If the audio subcode on the DV tape cannot be read correctly, the audio type will not switch automatically. You
can switch the audio manually from the External Audio setting (page 142).

Editing accuracy
Some editing commands ask you whether
you want to keep Video mode compatibility
or frame accuracy (Video Mode Compatible
Editing or Frame Accurate Editing).
Frame accurate editing is very precise. The
edit point is accurate to the exact frame you
choose. However, this accuracy is not
preserved in any copy you make if you use
the high-speed copy function to make a
Video mode DVD.

• Why doesn’t the available recording time
increase when I erase titles from a VR
mode DVD-R?
When you erase titles from a DVD-R (or
DVD+R), the titles are no longer
displayed, but the content remains on
the disc. DVD-R/+R are write-once
media; they can’t be erased or rewritten.
• I can’t edit my disc!
You may find that as the available
recording time is reduced on a VR mode
DVD-R disc, editing is no longer
possible. This is because information
about your edits requires a certain
amount of disc space. As you edit, this
information builds up, eventually
preventing you from editing further.

Copying and backup
Introduction
Restrictions on copying
Use the copying features of this recorder to:
Commercial DVD-Video discs are protected
using Copy Guard. These discs cannot be
copied to the HDD.
• Back up important recordings stored on
the HDD to a DVD.
• Make a DVD copy of a recording on the
HDD to play in another player.
• Transfer video from a DVD to the HDD
for editing.
• Transfer edited video from the HDD to
DVD.
The simplest way to copy a title is to use the
One Touch Copy feature. This copies the
currently playing HDD title to DVD, or DVD
title to the (internal) HDD. See One Touch
Copy on page 110 for detailed instructions.
For more sophisticated copying tasks you
can build a Copy List of titles to copy, and
edit titles so that you only copy the bits you
want. See Using Copy Lists on page 111 for
detailed instructions.
Where possible, the recorder will copy your
recordings at high-speed. Depending on the
recording mode, the kind of disc loaded and
various other factors, copying can be as fast
as one minute per hour of video. See
Minimum copying times on page 154 for
more on copying times.
If you want to save disc space you can copy
video at a lower recording quality (for
example, an XP recording on the HDD
copied to SP on a DVD). Copying in this way
is always done in real-time.
When real-time copying from the HDD to a
Video mode DVD-R/-RW or DVD+R/+RW,
the chapter markers in the original material
are not copied. Chapter markers are put into
the copy at intervals, according to the Auto
Chapter settings (see also Auto Chapter
(Video) and Auto Chapter (DVD+R/+RW) on
page 146).
Some video material is copy-once protected.
This means that it can be recorded to HDD,
but it can’t then be freely copied again. If you
want to transfer copy-once protected
material from HDD to DVD, you’ll need to a
CPRM ver. 1.1 or higher VR mode DVD-RW,
ver. 2.0 or 2.1 VR mode DVD-R, or CPRMcompatible DVD-RAM disc (see CPRM on
page 68 for more on this). Only one instance
of a copy-once protected title can be added
to the Copy List, and after it’s been copied,
the title is erased from the HDD (it is
therefore not possible to copy a locked title
that is copy-once protected).
You can identify copy-once protected
material during playback by displaying disc
information on-screen. If the current title is
copy-once protected, an exclamation mark
( ! ) is shown.
Copyright
Recording equipment should be used only
for lawful copying and you are advised to
check carefully what is lawful copying in the
country in which you are making a copy.
Copying of copyright material such as films
or music is unlawful unless permitted by a
legal exception or consented to by the
rightowners.

Canceling One Touch Copy
* See also Copyright above.
You can cancel a One Touch Copy once it’s
started.
The One Touch Copy feature copies the
currently playing or selected (in the Disc
Navigator) HDD title to DVD, or DVD title to
(internal) HDD.1 The whole title is copied,
regardless of where in the title you start the
copy.
HDD to DVD copies are made in the same
recording mode. When copying DVD to
HDD, the copy is made in whatever
recording mode is currently set.
Make sure that a recordable DVD disc is
loaded when trying to copy from the HDD.

Copying is canceled and the video already
copied is erased.
• Title name, chapter markers, as well as
thumbnail picture markers for the Disc
Navigator, are also copied. However, if
you copy to a Video mode DVD-R/-RW or
DVD+R/+RW, only the first 40
characters of a name are copied.
• The chapter markers in the copy may not
be in exactly the same positions as the
original when recording on to a Video
mode DVD-R/-RW or DVD+R/+RW.
• You can’t use the One Touch Copy
function to copy a title if any part of the
title is copy-once protected.
• A title that contains mixed aspect ratios
can’t be copied to a Video mode disc.
Use a VR mode DVD-R/-RW or DVD-RAM
disc for this type of material.
• Low resolution (SEP through LP modes2)
widescreen material can’t be copied to a
Video mode disc. Use a VR mode
DVD-R/-RW or DVD-RAM disc for this
type of material.
Note
1 DVR-940HX-S: Copying to the external HDD (HDD2) is not possible.
2 In manual recording mode these equate to MN1 to MN15 (Video Mode Off) or MN1 to MN8 (Video Mode On).

Copying and backup
• When HDD Recording Format is set to
Video Mode Off, titles recorded in LP/
MN9 to MN15 modes cannot be highspeed copied to a Video mode disc.
Please use a VR mode DVD-R/-RW or
DVD-RAM.
• Recordings of bilingual broadcasts
cannot be high-speed copied to a Video
mode DVD. Please use a VR mode DVDR/-RW or DVD-RAM.
• Titles over 8 hours cannot be copied to
single-layer DVD+R/+RW discs using
One Touch Copy. Use DVD+R DL discs
for titles over 8 hours.
• Titles recorded in MN1 to MN6, SEP, SLP
or EP mode cannot be copied to DVD+R/
+RW using One Touch Copy.
• DVR-940HX-S: When high-speed copying
from the internal or external HDD to
DVD, it is not possible to play from or
record to the other connected HDD.

Using Copy Lists
* See also Copyright on page 109.
At its simplest, a Copy List is just a list of
HDD or DVD titles that you want to copy.
When copying HDD titles to DVD, you can,
however, edit the titles in your copy list,
erasing chapters you don’t need, or renaming titles, for example. Edits you make to
titles in the Copy List do not affect the actual
video content; only the ‘virtual’ content of the
Copy List. So you can freely erase and modify
anything in your Copy List safe in the
knowledge that the actual content is not
being altered.
Copying from HDD to DVD
Important
• The recorder can only store one Copy List
at a time.
• The Copy List is erased if the Input Line
System setting is changed (see
Additional information about the TV
system settings on page 150).
• Resetting the recorder to its factory
settings (see Resetting the recorder on
page 167) will erase the Copy List.
Copying to the (internal) HDD
• The maximum title length for copying is
12 hours.
• Title name and chapter markers are also
copied, except when copying from a
finalized Video mode disc.
• Thumbnail picture markers and chapter
markers for the Disc Navigator are
copied, but their position in the copy
may be slightly changed from the
original.
• If some part of the title being copied is
copy-protected, copying will start, but
the copy-protected portions will not be
copied.
• DVR-940HX-S: Copying to the external
HDD (HDD2) is not possible.
1
Load a recordable DVD.
• It is possible to complete the following
steps without having a recordable DVD
loaded (or having an uninitialized DVD
loaded); however, the steps are slightly
different.
• If you want to use a DVD-RW (VR mode)
disc for the copy, make sure it is
initialized before you start.

Titles you’ve added to the Copy List are
highlighted in pink.
There are some restrictions on titles that can
be added to the Copy List if you are copying
to a Video mode DVD or DVD+R/+RW:
• When adding titles that contain copyonce protected material, the copy-once
parts will not be added.
• When adding titles that contain material
of more than one aspect ratio (screen
size), each part with a different aspect
ratio will be added as a separate title if
high-speed copying is possible.
Depending on the title1, high-speed copying
may not be possible to a Video mode disc.
Note
1 • Widescreen titles recorded at low resolution (SEP through LP/MN1 to MN15 (Video Mode Off) or MN1 to MN8
(Video Mode On).
• LP/MN9 to MN15 recordings when HDD Recording Format is set to Video Mode Off.
• Bilingual recordings.
• Combined titles that were originally recorded using different recording modes.

Chapter 12
Using the Jukebox
The Jukebox feature allows you to use the
recorder’s HDD1 to store and playback
music from up to 999 of your CDs. You can
also transfer WMA/MP3 files stored on CDR/-RW/-ROM or USB device. Once on the
HDD, you can name albums, assign them a
genre, and set tracks that you don’t want to
play to Jump.
Copying music to the HDD
The first step is to copy some music to the
HDD. CD audio is copied in real-time, while
WMA and MP3 files are copied at high
speed. All tracks are copied from each CD2
as an album.
WMA/MP3 album and track names are
copied along with the audio. CD album and
track names are not copied, but you can add
these later (see Editing Jukebox albums on
page 121).
Usually, the tracks are copied to the HDD in
the order they appear on the CD. When
copying CD audio, you can copy them in
some other order using the program play
mode. See Program play on page 90 for how
to do this.
Note that once copied to the HDD, audio
tracks cannot be copied to a recordable DVD
disc.
Important
• While copying CD audio, no other
recorder operation is possible.
• When copying CD audio, scheduled
timer recordings will not start until
copying is complete.
• Copy protected CDs may not copy
successfully.
1 Load the CD you want to copy to the
HDD.
2 HOME MENU Select ‘Copy’ from the Home
Menu.
ENTER
3
Select ‘DVD/CD to HDD’.
On pressing ENTER all tracks (or files) on the
CD are copied to the HDD.
• You can also start copying by starting
playback of the CD (including program
play) and then pressing ONE TOUCH
COPY.
• To cancel copying an audio CD, press
and hold ONE TOUCH COPY for more
than one second.
• To cancel copying a WMA/MP3 disc,
press ENTER.
• If the CD loaded contains both CD audio
tracks and WMA/MP3 files, the part
currently selected will play.
Note
1 DVR-940HX-S: You cannot use the external HDD to store music for the Jukebox.

As you record, erase and edit recordings, the

optimizing to ‘clean up’ all the fragmented
files.
When your DVD recorder is working without
a problem this option is not visible in the

system becomes corrupted for some reason,
you can initialize the HDD to fix the problem.
Note that initializing the HDD will erase all
the data on it.
When the HDD needs optimizing the
recorder will automatically display a
message recommending optimization.

• Optimizing the HDD can take as long as
eight hours. During optimization,
playback and recording are not possible.
• Canceling optimization mid-way does
not undo the optimization already done,

About the input line system
This recorder is compatible with PAL,
SECAM, 3.58 NTSC and PAL-60 TV systems.
The Input Line System and Input Colour
System settings determine how the recorder
treats incoming video signals from an
external input.
Please note the following points when
changing the input line system:

• When the current input is a built-in tuner
channel preset, changing the input line
system will usually also affect the input
line system of the AV2(INPUT 1/
DECODER) input. However if the AV2/L1
In setting is set to Decoder, then the L2
input is affected instead.
• If, when the Input Line System setting is
changed, the screen goes blank (due to
incompatibility with your TV), you can
switch back by pressing and holding the
front panel STOP button then pressing
INPUT SELECT (also front panel) while
the recorder is stopped.

Using Software Update
(Digital tuner)
The Software Update function can keep the
built-in digital tuner up to date with the latest
system software. You can either check for
updates manually, or have the recorder do it
automatically at regular intervals.
Access the Software Update screen from the
Options menu.
There are three options available: Manual
Update, Auto Update and Technical
Information.
Auto Update
By default, the Auto Update option is On,
which means that periodically the recorder
will check for and update the digital tuner
software if it’s available. We recommend
that you leave this option On.
If new software is found and successfully
downloaded, the recorder automatically
scans for new digital channels, informing
you if any are found (this is the equivalent of
using the Add New Channel option, found in
the Digital Tuner section of the Initial Setup
menu).
Technical Information
Manual Update
Select Manual Update to check for updated
software immediately. If new software is
found then it is automatically downloaded
and installed. The new software will take
effect the next time the recorder is powered
on.
If for some reason the new software could
not be downloaded successfully, a dialog
box informs you of the error. Press HOME
MENU to exit or RETURN/EXIT to return to
the previous screen.
Note that channel information may be
erased when software update is used, and
that timer recording will not work during the

Handling discs
For more detailed care information see the
instructions that come with discs.
When holding discs of any type, take care
not to leave fingerprints, dirt or scratches on
the disc surface. Hold the disc by its edge or
by the center hole and edge.
Do not load more than one disc into the
recorder.
Damaged or dirty discs can affect playback
and recording performance. Take care also
not to scratch the label side of the disc.
Although not as fragile as the recorded side,
scratches can still result in a disc becoming
unusable.
Should a disc become marked with
fingerprints, dust, etc., clean using a soft,
dry cloth, wiping the disc lightly from the
center to the outside edge. Do not wipe with
a circular motion.
If necessary, use a cloth soaked in alcohol,
or a commercially available CD/DVD
cleaning kit to clean a disc more thoroughly.
Never use benzine, thinner or other cleaning
agents, including products designed for
cleaning vinyl records.
Storing discs
Although CDs and DVD discs are more
durable than vinyl records, you should still
take care to handle and store discs correctly.
When you're not using a disc, return it to its
case and store upright. Avoid leaving discs
in excessively cold, humid, or hot
environments (including under direct
sunlight).
Don't glue paper or put stickers onto the
disc, or use a pencil, ball-point pen or other
sharp-tipped writing instrument. These
could all damage the disc.
166
En
Damaged discs
Discs spin at high speed inside the recorder.
If you can see that a disc is cracked,
chipped, warped, or otherwise damaged,
don't risk using it; you could end up
damaging the recorder.
This recorder is designed for use with
conventional, fully circular discs only. Use of
shaped discs is not recommended for this
product. Pioneer disclaims all liability
arising in connection with the use of shaped
discs.
Cleaning the pickup lens
The DVD recorder’s lens should not become
dirty in normal use, but if for some reason it
should malfunction due to dust or dirt,
consult your nearest Pioneer-authorized
service center. Although lens cleaners are
commercially available, we do not
recommend using them since some may
damage the lens.

Additional information
Condensation
Condensation may form inside the recorder
if it is brought into a warm room from
outside, or if the temperature of the room
rises quickly. Although the condensation
won’t damage the recorder, it may
temporarily impair its performance. For this
reason you should leave it to adjust to the
warmer temperature for about an hour
before switching on and using.
Hints on installation
We want you to enjoy using this unit for
years to come, so please bear in mind the
following points when choosing a suitable
location for it:
Do...
Use in a well-ventilated room.
Place on a solid, flat, level surface, such
as a table, shelf or stereo rack.
Don’t...
Use in a place exposed to high
temperatures or humidity, including near
radiators and other heat-generating
appliances.
Place on a window sill or other place
where the recorder will be exposed to direct
sunlight.
17
Use on a thick rug or carpet, or cover
with cloth—this may prevent proper cooling
of the unit.
Place on an unstable surface, or one that
is not large enough to support all four of the
unit’s feet.
Moving the recorder
If you need to move the recorder, first
remove the disc, if loaded, and close the disc
tray. Next, press STANDBY/ON to switch
the power to standby, checking that the
POWER OFF indication in the display goes
off. Wait at least two minutes. Lastly,
disconnect the power cord. Never lift or
move the unit during playback or
recording—discs rotate at a high speed and
may be damaged.
Resetting the recorder
If you need to, you can reset the recorder to
all its factory settings.
1
Make sure that the recorder is on.
2 Using the front panel controls, press
and hold STOP and press STANDBY/
ON.
The recorder turns off with all settings reset.
Use in a dusty or damp environment or
in a room where it will be exposed to
excessive cigarette smoke.
Place directly on top of an amplifier, or
other component in your stereo system that
becomes hot in use.
Use near a television or monitor as you
may experience interference—especially if
the television uses an indoor antenna.
Use in a kitchen or other room where the
recorder may be exposed to smoke or steam.
