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 HDD is a device that is not built to withstand

vibration/shock or dust

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.

The HDD is a temporary storage device

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.

Setup precautions

Do not place in an enclosed area so the rear cooling fan

and the cooling vents on the side are covered up.

Place the unit on a surface that is flat and not subject to

vibration or impact.

Do not place on anything that

generates heat like a video cassette recorder etc.

≥Do not place in an area often subject to

This unit

VCR 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.

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.

Cigarette smoke etc. causes malfunction or

breakdown

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.)

HDD recording time remaining

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.)

When “HDD SLP (SLEEP)” appears in the

display

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).

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.

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.

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 dialog 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 r

RQT7458

48

Frame 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.

7458en.book 49 ページ 2004年5月14日 金曜日 午前10時47分

Q Link

This function works only if the unit is connected via a fully wired 21pin Scart lead to a TV featuring the Q Link or similar function.

Q Link offers the following functions:

≥Download from the TV §

When you connect the unit to a TV, the station list data is automatically copied from the TV to the unit, and the TV stations are assigned to the programme positions on the unit in the same order as on the TV.

≥Direct TV Recording

By simply pressing [

¥ DIRECT TV REC], you can at once record the same programme that you are watching on the TV.

≥TV/DVD Auto On §

Even if the TV and the unit are off (standby mode), pressing

[

1] (PLAY), [DIRECT NAVIGATOR, TOP MENU], [VIDEO Plus+] or [PROG/CHECK] automatically turns on both the TV and the unit.

If the TV is off (standby mode) and the unit is on, when you press

[FUNCTIONS] or [

1] (PLAY), or insert the disc (except DVD-RAM and DVD-R), the TV automatically is turned on.

≥DVD Auto Standby

§

When you turn the TV off, the unit is turned off as well. However, this function works in the stop mode.

This function does not work during the following operations: Preset

Download, Auto-Setup, Auto Clock Setting and Manual Tuning.

This function does also not work when the DVD drive selected and an audio CD is in the disc tray.

≥On-Screen Messages

When you are watching a TV programme, the following messages appear on the TV screen to inform you of the unit’s condition:

Message

§

Message appears when:

This programme has already started

A timer recording has just started.

Set DVD to timer standby mode

The unit is not in the timer standby mode

10 minutes before the programmed recording start time (message appears every minute during these 10 minutes).

[

¥ REC] or [VIDEO Plus+] was pressed while the unit is in the timer recording mode.

Depending on the type of TV used, the above messages may not appear correctly.

§

These operations are only available if the unit is connected to a TV featuring the Q Link function.

PDC (Programme Delivery Control)

Programme Delivery Control adjusts the start and stop time of a timer recording automatically to ensure the recording starts and finishes in line with the programme broadcast. This is useful when a programme over-runs the published times.

The station must be transmitting PDC and the exact time must be set for PDC to work.

The unit detects whether a station is transmitting PDC only during the tuning process.

If PDC is introduced or discontinued by a station you will need to re-tune the unit before it becomes aware of this.

PDC transmissions are not currently nation-wide so please check with your local broadcaster for more information.

The beginnings of recordings may not be recorded correctly in some cases.
