perform older tape formats. The following information
summarizes a few of these features.
Instant recording
You no longer need to search for empty disc space. By
pressing the recording button, the unit finds available
recording space and begins recording right away. There is no
need to worry about overwriting already recorded content.
HDD recording
You can keep on recording your favorite programmes to an
internal HDD that is able to record up to 142 hours [EP (8
Hour) mode].
You can also high speed transfer (dub) your favorite
programmes to DVD-RAM or DVD-R and create a backup
disc.
Instant play
There is no need to rewind or search forward. Direct
Navigator guides you to the beginning of the recorded video
immediately.
Chasing playback
There is no need to wait until
recording is complete. Without
stopping recording, you can play the
video currently being recorded from
its beginning.
Simultaneous Recording
and Playback
While recording, you can play
another video programme that was
recorded previously.
Time Slip
During play and also while recording,
you can jump to the scene you wish
to view by specifying the skip time.

∫ RGB
This refers to the three primary colours of light, red (R), green (G), and blue (B) and also the method of producing video that uses them. By
dividing the video signal into the three colours for transmission, noise is reduced for even higher quality images.

temperature changes.
≥Place in an area where condensation does not occur.
Condensation is a phenomenon where moisture forms on a
cold surface when there is an extreme change in temperature.
Condensation may cause internal damage to the unit.
Getting started
7664en.book 15 ページ
≥Conditions where condensation may occur
–When there is an extreme change in temperature (moving from
a very hot location to a very cold location, or vice versa, or when
subjected to an air conditioner or when cooled air directly
impacts the unit.) When the HDD (warms during operation) is
subjected to cold air, condensation may form on the inside of
the HDD and may cause damage to the HDD heads etc.
–When there is high humidity or a lot of steam in the room.
–During the rainy season.
≥In the above situation, without turning the unit on, let the unit
adjust to the room temperature and wait 2–3 hours until
condensation is gone.

HDD (Hard disk drive) handling care
The HDD is a high precision recording instrument and because of its
long recording capability and high speed operation it is a very
special device that is easily susceptible to damage.
As a basic rule, save important video content to a DVD disc as
backup.
The unit may breakdown if cigarette smoke or bug spray/vapor
etc. gets inside the unit.
∫ While operating
≥Do not move the unit or subject to vibration or impact. (The
HDD may become damaged.)
≥Do not remove the AC mains lead from the household mains
socket, or flip the power breaker switch.
While the unit is on, the HDD is rotating at high speed. Sound or
movement due to rotation is normal.
∫ When moving the unit
1 Turn the unit off. (Wait until “BYE” disappears from the
display.)
2 Remove the AC mains lead from the household mains socket.
3 Move only after the unit has come to a complete stop (approx.
2 minutes) in order to avoid subjecting to vibration and shock.
(Even after turning the unit off, the HDD continues operating
for a short time.)
∫ The HDD is a device that is not built to withstand
vibration/shock or dust
∫ HDD recording time remaining
Depending on the setup environment and handling of the HDD some
content may become damaged and play and recording may no
longer be possible. Especially during operation, do not subject the
unit to any vibration, shock, or remove the AC mains lead from the
household mains socket. In the event of a power failure the content
during recording or play may be damaged.
This unit records using a VBR (Variable bit rate) data compression
system to vary recorded data segments to match video data
segments which may cause differences in the displayed amount of
time and space remaining for recording.
If the remaining amount time is insufficient, erase any unwanted
titles to create enough space before you start recording. (Erasing a
play list will not increase the amount of time.)
∫ The HDD is a temporary storage device
∫ When “HDD SLP (SLEEP)” appears in the
display
The HDD is not an everlasting storage device for recorded content.
Use the HDD as a temporary storage place for viewing once, editing,
or for saving to a DVD disc.
∫ Immediately save (backup) all content as soon
as you feel there may be problem with the HDD
If there is an irregularity within the HDD, strange sounds or problems
with picture (block noise etc.) may result. Using the HDD in this
condition may worsen the problem and in the worst case the HDD
may no longer become usable. As soon as you notice this type of
problem, save all content to the DVD disc.
Recorded content (Data) on a HDD that has become unusable is
unrecoverable.
The HDD has automatically gone into SLEEP mode in order to
extend the life of the HDD.
≥Press [HDD] to activate.
≥While in SLEEP mode play or recording may not begin right away
because the HDD takes time to be re-activated.
≥If there is no disc in the unit, the HDD will go into SLEEP mode
after there has been no operation for 30 minutes or longer. When
not using the unit, we recommend removing the disc.
∫ Indemnity concerning recorded content
Panasonic does not accept any responsibility for damages
directly or indirectly due to any type of problems that result in loss
of recording or edited content (data), and does not guarantee any
content if recording or editing does not work properly. Likewise,
the above also applies in the case any type of repair is made to
the unit (including any other non-HDD related component).

Safety precautions
Placement
Set the unit up on an even surface away from direct sunlight, high
temperatures, high humidity, and excessive vibration. These
conditions can damage the cabinet and other components, thereby
shortening the unit’s service life.
Do not place heavy items on the unit.
Voltage
Do not use high voltage power sources. This can overload the unit
and cause a fire.
Do not use a DC power source. Check the source carefully when
setting the unit up on a ship or other place where DC is used.
AC mains lead protection
Ensure the AC mains lead is connected correctly and not
damaged. Poor connection and lead damage can cause fire or
electric shock. Do not pull, bend, or place heavy items on the lead.
Grasp the plug firmly when unplugging the lead. Pulling the AC
mains lead can cause electric shock.
Do not handle the plug with wet hands. This can cause electric
shock.
Foreign matter
Do not let metal objects fall inside the unit. This can cause electric
shock or malfunction.
Do not let liquids get into the unit. This can cause electric shock or
malfunction. If this occurs, immediately disconnect the unit from the
power supply and contact your dealer.
Do not spray insecticides onto or into the unit. They contain
flammable gases which can ignite if sprayed into the unit.
Service
Do not attempt to repair this unit by yourself. If sound is
interrupted, indicators fail to light, smoke appears, or any other
problem that is not covered in these instructions occurs, disconnect
the AC mains lead and contact your dealer or an authorized service
center. Electric shock or damage to the unit can occur if the unit is
repaired, disassembled or reconstructed by unqualified persons.
Extend operating life by disconnecting the unit from the power
source if it is not to be used for a long time.

Glossary
Bitstream
This is the digital form of multi-channel audio data (e.g., 5.1 channel)
before it is decoded into its various channels.
CPRM (Content Protection for Recordable Media)
CPRM is technology used to protect broadcasts that are allowed to
be recorded only once. Such broadcasts can be recorded only with
CPRM compatible recorders and discs.
Dolby Digital
This is a method of coding digital signals developed by Dolby
Laboratories. Apart from stereo (2-channel) audio, these signals can
also be multi-channel audio. A large amount of audio information can
be recorded on one disc using this method.
When recording on this unit Dolby Digital (2 channel) is the default
audio.
Down-mixing
This is the process of remixing the multi-channel audio found on
some discs into two channels. It is useful when you want to listen to
the 5.1-channel audio recorded on DVDs through your television’s
speakers. Some discs prohibit down-mixing and this unit can then
only output the front two channels.
Drive
In the instance of this unit, this refers to the hard disk (HDD) and
DVD. These perform the reading and writing of data.
DTS (Digital Theater Systems)
This surround system is used in many movie theaters. There is good
separation between the channels, so realistic sound effects are
possible.
Reference
Dynamic range
Dynamic range is the difference between the lowest level of sound
that can be heard above the noise of the equipment and the highest
level of sound before distortion occurs.
Dynamic range compression means reducing the gap between the
loudest and softest sounds. This means you can listen at low
volumes but still hear dialogue clearly.
Film and video
DVD-Videos are recorded using either film or video. This unit can
determine which type has been used, then uses the most suitable
method of progressive output.
For PAL
Film is 25 frames per second.
Video is 50 fields per second (two fields making up one frame).
For NTSC
Film is 24 or 30 frames per second, with motion picture film generally
being 24 frames per second.
Video is 60 fields per second (two fields making up one frame).
Finalize
A process that makes play of a recorded CD-R, CD-RW or DVD-R
etc. possible on equipment that can play such media. You can
finalize DVD-R on this unit.
You cannot record onto or edit finalized discs.
Formatting
Formatting is the process of making media such as DVD-RAM
recordable on recording equipment.
You can format the HDD and DVD-RAM on this unit. Formatting
erases irrevocably all recordings on the disc.
Frames and fields
Frames refer to the single images that constitute the video you see
on your television. Each frame consists of two fields.
u
Frame
RQT7664
46
46
r
Field
Field
≥A frame still shows two fields, so there may be some blurring, but
picture quality is generally better.
≥A field still shows less picture information so it may be rougher, but
there is no blurring.
HDD (Hard disk drive)
This is a mass data storage device used in computers etc. A disk
with a surface that has been treated with magnetic fluid is spun and
a magnetic head is brought in close proximity to facilitate the reading
and writing of large amounts of data at high speed.
LPCM (Linear PCM)
These are uncompressed digital signals, similar to those found on
CDs. LPCM sound is available when recording in XP mode.
MP3 (MPEG Audio Layer 3)
An audio compression method that compresses audio to
approximately one tenth of its size without any considerable loss of
audio quality. You can play MP3 you have recorded onto CD-R and
CD-RW.
Pan&Scan/Letterbox
In general, DVD-Video are produced with the intention that they be
viewed on a widescreen television (16:9 aspect ratio), so images
often don’t fit regular (4:3 aspect ratio) televisions. Two styles of
picture, “Pan & Scan” and “Letterbox”, deal with this problem.
Pan & Scan: The sides are cut off so the picture
fills the screen.
Letterbox: Black bands appear at the top and
bottom of the picture so the picture
itself appears in an aspect ratio of
16:9.
Playback control (PBC)
If a Video CD has playback control, you can select scenes and
information with menus.
(This unit is compatible with version 2.0 and 1.1.)
Progressive/Interlace
The PAL video signal standard has 625 (or 576) interlaced (I) scan
lines, whereas progressive scanning, called 625P (or 576P), uses
twice the number of scan lines. For the NTSC standard, these are
called 525I (or 480I) and 525P (or 480P) respectively.
Using progressive output, you can enjoy the high-resolution video
recorded on media such as DVD-Video.
Your television must be compatible to enjoy progressive video.
Panasonic televisions with 625 (576)/50I · 50P, 525 (480)/60I · 60P
input terminals are progressive compatible.
Protection
You can prevent accidental erasure by setting writing protection or
erasure protection.
Sampling frequency
Sampling is the process of converting the heights of sound wave
(analog signal) samples taken at set periods into digits (digital
encoding). Sampling frequency is the number of samples taken per
second, so larger numbers mean more faithful reproduction of the
original sound.
VBR (Variable bitrate)
This is a method of video recording that adjusts the bit rate
according to video signal.

VPS or PDC is a very convenient system which records exactly from beginning to end of the TV programmes set in timer recording, even if the
actual broadcasting time differs from the scheduled time due to delayed start or extension of the programme duration. Also, if a programme is
interrupted, for example, some special news is inserted, the recording will be paused automatically and resumed when the programme continues.
Depending on the signals sent from the TV stations, the VPS/PDC system may not work properly even when “VPS/PDC” has been set to “ON”.
Please check with the broadcasters in your area for details.
≥In the case of VPS/PDC recording, use the correct time (VPS/PDC time) for recording the TV programmes.
Set “VPS/PDC” to “OFF” when the recording time is not the correct time (VPS/PDC time).
VPS/PDC recording is not performed when the time (VPS/PDC time) is incorrect, even if only by one minute. To find out the correct time (VPS/
PDC time), consult Teletext, a newspaper or magazine, or other source.
≥If the actual broadcasting times of timer recordings overlap (regardless of whether they are VPS/PDC controlled), the recording that starts first
always has priority, and the recording of the later programme will start only after the first timer recording has finished.
≥When the VPS/PDC signal drops out because the broadcast signal is weak, or when a TV station does not transmit a regular VPS/PDC signal,
the timer recording will be performed in the normal mode (without VPS/PDC) even if it was programmed for VPS/PDC.
In this case, even if the timer recording is performed, whatever has been programmed will not be cancelled at that particular time but at 4 a.m.
two days later.
≥The start times of scheduled programmes listed in the newspaper or magazine may be changed at a later date. Set “VPS/PDC” to “OFF” when
programming a programme whose start time has been subsequently changed. Particular care must be taken in this respect with SHOWVIEW
programming since “VPS/PDC” is automatically set to “ON” in some countries (➡below).
≥If a programme listed in a newspaper or magazine has two SHOWVIEW numbers, use the SHOWVIEW number for VPS/PDC if you wish to proceed
with VPS/PDC recording using SHOWVIEW programming.
≥The default settings for “VPS/PDC” differ depending on the country concerned. Refer to the following table.
≥If the broadcasting station is not transmitting VPS/PDC signals, “jjj” appears in the menu for timer programming under “VPS/PDC”.
≥The beginnings of recordings may not be recorded correctly in some cases.
