Set up
• Place the recorder on a firm, level base.
• Do not move the recorder during operation or just after switching it off.
• Do not place the recorder in the vicinity of sources of intense heat or in direct
sunlight.
• When installing in a cabinet or enclosed shelf: Leave at least 2.5 cm free around
the recorder to allow unhindered circulation of air and avoid build-up of heat.
Do not cover up fan and openings on the rear.
• There can be interference to the images and sound of any nearby television,
video recorder or radio. If this is the case, do not position the unit in the direct
vicinity of a TV set, video recorder or radio, or switch the unit off after removing the disc.
• Position the recorder so that the infrared signal of the remote control can
reach the display of the recorder unobstructed (or if this is not possible, see
“Advantages of connection to a Loewe TV set”, page 11).
• Do not place strong artificial light sources in front of the device. This may affect
infrared reception.
• Incorrect voltages can damage the device. This device may only be connected
to a power supply with the voltage and frequency specified on the rating plate,
using the power cable provided.
• If there is an electrical storm, disconnect the antenna and mains plug. Power
surges caused by lightning strikes can damage the unit through the antenna
system or the mains.
• The antenna and mains should also be disconnected if the unit is to remain
unsupervised for a long period of time.
• The mains plug must be easily accessible so that the unit can be disconnected
at any time.
• Lay the cable in such a way that it cannot get damaged. The power cable should
not be kinked or laid over sharp edges, not stood upon or exposed to chemicals
- the latter also applies to the device as a whole. A mains cable with damaged
insulation can cause electric shocks and is a fire hazard.
• Do not tug the cable when you remove the mains plug but hold the plug by the
housing. The wires in the mains plug may be damaged and cause a short-circuit
when you plug it back in.
You should also read and follow the safety advice on the following pages.

Welcome
Shipping the Unit
Advantages of connection to a Loewe TV set
The original shipping box and packaging materials should be used to ship the unit.
To give the unit the best possible protection, repack it as it was originally packed
by the manufacturer.
With Digital Link you can install the recorder for example in a closed rack or a
cupboard without direct visual contact with the recorder. With the DVD remote
control, you operate the recorder via the Loewe TV set. Digital Link must be
switched on on the recorder (page 20).
If you use the HDMI connection, the TV set is automatically switched over to this
input if your TV set supports this function.
If you want to make timer recordings from the TV satellite tuner, Digital Link Plus
controls the recording. With Digital Link Plus the station data of the aerial and
cable stations of the TV set are transferred to the recorder so that the same stations
are saved in the same order in both devices. This enables timer recordings of aerial
and cable stations to be made comfortably on the TV set with the EPG (Electronic
Program Guide). The timer data are transferred to the recorder which then makes
the timer recording independently of the TV set. For timer data for satellite stations, the TV set starts and stops the recorder and sets it to the Euro AV 1 input.
When play is started, this is shown immediately on the TV set regardless of which
TV station you are currently watching (if the TV is switched off, it will be switched
back on automatically first).
Disposal
Cardboard box and packaging
In line with national regulations regarding the disposal of packaging materials, we
pay a fee to authorised recyclers who collect packaging from dealers. However, we
recommend that you keep the original cardboard box and the rest of the packaging
materials so that the unit can, if necessary, be transported in the safest possible
conditions.
The unit
Important: The EU Directive 2002/96/EG governs the proper
re-acceptance, handling and recycling of used electronic appliances. Old electronic appliances must therefore be disposed of
separately. Never throw this set in the normal domestic waste.
You can hand in your old set free of charge at identified collection
points or at your dealer if you buy a similar new set. Other details
about re-acceptance (also for non-EU countries) are available from
your local administration.
Remote control batteries
The batteries provided contain no harmful materials such as
cadmium, lead or mercury. Regulations concerning used batteries
mean that batteries may no longer be thrown out with the household rubbish. You can dispose of used batteries free of charge at
the collection points in commercial outlets. Your dealer will also
have a collection point for used batteries.
About the internal harddisc
The internal harddisc (HDD) is very sensitive. Operate the recorder according to the
following regulations to avoid HDD errors.
Important recordings should be saved on DVDs to avoid losing data (page 62).
Do not move the recorder immediately after switching it off. To move the recorder,
proceed as follows:
1. Wait at least two minutes after the message POWER OFF.
. Pull out the mains plug.
. Move the recorder.
Data on the HDD may be lost if the power fails during recorder operation.
The HDD is very sensitive. Improper handling or an unsuitable environment could
damage the HDD after a few years in operation.
Sudden stopping during playing and visible mosaic effects in the picture are an
indication of this. There may be no advance warning signs for an HDD defect.
Recordings cannot be played if the HDD is defective. The HDD must be replaced
in this case.

For your safety
For your own safety and to avoid unnecessary damage to your unit, please read
and follow the safety advice below:
Use for the intended purpose and ambient conditions
This recorder is intended exclusively for the reception, recording and playing of
video and audio signals and is designed for the home and office and may not be
operated in rooms with a high humidity (e.g. bathroom, sauna) or high concentration of dust (e.g. workshops).
The terms of the warranty only cover normal use of the recorder.
If the device is used outdoors, make sure that it is protected against moisture (rain,
drips and splashes or dew). High humidity and dust concentrations lead to leak
currents in the device which may lead to electric shocks or fires.
If you have moved the device out of the cold into a warm environment, leave it
switched off for about an hour to avoid formation of condensation.
Always switch off your system (ViewVision DR+ DVB-T, TV set and any other audio
components which may be connected) before connecting or disconnecting other
devices or loudspeakers.
PLEASE NOTE: TO AVOID RISK OF ELECTRICAL SHOCK, DO NOT REMOVE THE
COVER (OR THE REAR OF THE UNIT). THERE ARE NO PARTS INSIDE THE UNIT
THAT CAN BE REPAIRED BY THE USER. REPAIRS SHOULD ONLY BE CARRIED
OUT BY A LOEWE DEALER.
Only use original accessories such as Loewe installation systems if possible.
Supervision
Do not allow children to use the recorder/TV set unsupervised. Do not allow children to
play in the immediate vicinity of the recorder/TV set. They could knock, push or pull the
equipment over and cause injury.
Cleaning
Only clean your recorder with a slightly damp, soft, clean cloth (without any aggressive cleaning agents).
If the recorder does not read a disc correctly, the reading unit in the device may be
soiled. Use a commercially available cleaning disc.
Keep the disc drawer closed to prevent dust from the drawer getting onto the
lens.
About this user guide
The information in this guide refers to the Loewe product Viewvision DR+ DVB-T
and Viewvision DR+ DVB-T Secam - (version for France).
Unless stated otherwise, the instructions refer to the operating elements on the
Assist remote control.
Do not open up the housing, or you could be directly exposed to the laser beam.
The laser beam will be visible if the unit is open.
DO NOT LOOK INTO THE LASER BEAM.
Protect your recorder from:
• liquids and damp
• shock and mechanical stress
• magnetic and electrical fields
• cold, heat, direct sunlight and extreme fluctuations in temperature
• dust
• anything which obstructs ventilation
• manual interference with the unit‘s interior
- 12
The explanations for DVDs in this guide refer to the DVDs recorded with this
recorder. They do not apply for DVDs recorded on other recorders and played on
this recorder.
Paragraphs beginning with the ➠ symbol indicate important hints, tips or conditions for perfect operation.
Terms which you will find in the menu or printed on the recorder are printed in
bold type.
In the functional descriptions, the necessary operating elements are arranged to
the left of the text which contains the handling instructions.
Please read this operating manual to understand this device and its possibilities.
The individual chapters are inter-related.
The index/glossary at the end of this manual explains certain terms which are used
in the user interface of the device and in the operating manual.
Essential Information
Rewritable discs
DVD-RW (Digital Versatile Disc - ReWritable)
DVD-RW discs can be formatted for recording in the VR mode or
in the video mode. These discs can be rewritten several times.
Recordings can be deleted and the disc can then be rewritten.
VR mode Recordings can be extensively edited.
They can only be played on VR mode compatible players (after
finalisation).
Video mode Limited editing possible.
Play on normal DVD players (after finalisation).
DVD-R (Digital Versatile Disc - Recordable)
These discs can be recorded once. A DVD-R disc cannot be rewritten or edited after finalisation. DVD-R discs can only be formatted
for recording in video mode. Play on normal DVD players (after
finalisation). Limited editing possible.
DVD+RW (Digital Versatile Disc + ReWritable)
These discs can be rewritten several times. Recordings can be deleted and the disc can then be rewritten. Play only on DVD+RWcompatible players (automatic finalisation). Edited contents can
only be played after finalisation on DVD+RW-compatible players.
Titles/chapters of recordings can be edited.
DVD+R (Digital Versatile Disc + Recordable)
➠ This recorder cannot write to CD-R or CD-RW discs.
➠ This recorder cannot write data discs (e.g. no MP3 or JPEG files).
➠ The displayed recording time is not exact because the recorder uses a variable bit rate video compression. This means that the exact recording time
depends on the contents being recorded.
➠ When recording a television broadcast the remaining recording time may be
shorter if the reception is poor or the picture contains interference.
➠ If you record only still pictures or audio, the recording time may be longer.
➠ The displayed recording time and remaining time may not always add up to
the total length of the disc.
➠The available recording time may be shorter following intensive editing of the
disc.
➠ If you use a DVD-R disc you can continue recording until the disc is full or
until you finalize it. Before you start recording check how much recording
time is available on the disc.
➠ If you use a DVD-RW disc in video mode, the available recording time is
extended again when you delete the last title recorded on the disc.
➠ The Delete Parts function (page 57) only hides the title but does not delete
it from the disc and does not extend the recording time (except for the last
recorded title on a DVD-RW disc in video mode).
➠ Overwrite recording is only possible on DVD+RW discs (Page 64).
These discs can be recorded once. A DVD+R disc cannot be rewritten or edited after finalisation. Play only on DVD+R-compatible
players (after finalisation). Edited contents can only be played
after finalisation on DVD+R-compatible players. Title/chapters
can be edited conditionally.

Essential Information
Recording TV-Audio Channels
This recorder can also record NICAM audio. If the NICAM setting (page 26) is set
to “Auto“, NICAM audio will be recorded in the case of a NICAM transmission.
Restrictions on Video Recording
• You cannot record movie material with copy protection with this recorder. If
a copy protection is encountered during recording, the recording stops or is
interrupted automatically and a message is displayed on the screen.
• A video that can only be copied once can only be recorded using a DVD-RW
disc in VR mode with CPRM (see below).
• NTSC format signals from analog or DV inputs cannot be recorded correctly
with this recorder.
• SECAM format video signals (from an integrated TV tuner or from analog
inputs) are recorded in PAL format.
CPRM
CPRM is a copy protection system (with scramble system) that only allows the
recording of “copy once“ broadcasts. CPRM is the abbreviation for “Content
Protection for Recordable Media”.
This recorder is CPRM compatible. You can therefore record copy-once broadcasts
but cannot make copies of these recordings. CPRM recordings are only possible
with VR mode formatted DVD-RW discs and can only be played on players with
CPRM compatibility.
Copyright
• The recording equipment should only be used for lawful copying. You should
find out what constitutes lawful copying in the country in which you are making a copy. Copying of copyrighted material e.g. films or music is only lawful
if permitted by a legal exception or consented to by the rights owner.
• The product contains copyright protection technology through certain US patents and other intellectual property rights and is the property of the Macrovision
Corporation and other companies. Use of this protection technology must be

Digital Link Plus
If you have connected the recorder to a Loewe TV set with Digital Link Plus or a
comparable system of another make (e.g. EasyLink, Mega Logic, Project 50), the
analogue station list will be transferred from the TV to the recorder. This happens
when you log in the recorder on the TV set or when you change (resort, delete,
add new ones) the analogue stations on the TV set. After such a change, the TV
will prompt you to start transfer of the changed analogue station list.
The recorder detects a connected TV set with Digital Link Plus or a comparable
system of a different make and sets the recorder accordingly. Then you can no
longer search for, delete or sort TV stations on the recorder. The menu items are
displayed in grey. Please note that all analogue stations which you receive via
antenna or cable have to be saved on station slots 1 to 88 in the TV set. If the
TV set does not prompt you to transfer the analogue station data, start transfer
on the recorder.
- 24
Please only make all the changes to the analogue stations on the TV set when
your TV set is equipped with Digital Link Plus or with a comparable system of
another make.
If your TV set to which you have connected the recorder does not have Digital Link
Plus or a comparable system, you should match up the analogue stations lists of
the recorder and the TV set. This makes it easier for you to find the channels on
the TV set and the recorder.

DIGITAL OUT socket.
Sampling Frequency
If your receiver or amplifier is NOT designed for 96 kHz signals, select 48 kHz. If
you have made this selection, the unit automatically converts the 96 kHz signals to
48 kHz signals that the system can decode. If your receiver or amplifier is designed
for 96 kHz signals, select 96 kHz.
Night Mode (DRC)
Thanks to digital audio technology the DVD format enables you to hear soundtracks
in the most accurate and realistic way possible. However, you may wish to limit
the dynamics (i.e. the difference between the loudest and the quietest sounds). In
this way you can play a film with minimum volume differences. For this purpose
switch DRC to ON.

HDMI (DVI) connection
The HDMI connection (High Definiton Multimedia Interface) allows digital picture
and sound transmission via a connecting cable, e.g. to Loewe Flat TV sets. The
digital picture and sound data are transmitted without data compression and therefore lose none of their quality. In the equipment connected, no analogue/digital
conversion is necessary, which might also have lead to losses in quality.
DVI signals can be also be reproduced by the HDMI connection using a DVI/HDMI
adapter cable. This is possible because HDMI is based on DVI and is downwardly
compatible. That means that the digital video signals are transmitted via HDMI
- no audio signals are transmitted, though. In addition, both use the same copy
protection method HDCP (High Definition Content Protection).
Switch off the TV set/monitor with HDMI connection and
recorder.

Switch the TV set over to the HDMI AV input (takes place automatically in connection with a Loewe Flat-TV set, see page 16).

Recording
Digital Video
General “DV“ information
With DV (Digital Video, also known as i.LINK), you can use a DV cable as the audio,
video, data and control signals input / output to connect a camcorder that has DV to
this recorder. The i.LINK interface complies with the IEEE 1394-1995 standard.
“i.LINK” and the “i.LINK” logo are trademarks.
• This recorder is only compatible with “DV 25“ format camcorders. Digital satellite tuners and digital VHS video recorders are not compatible.
• You cannot connect more than one DV cam-corder at a time to this recorder.
• You cannot control this recorder with external devices that are connected via
the DV IN socket (incl. two Recorders).
• The camcorder connected via the DV IN socket cannot necessarily, in every
case, be controlled.
• Digital camcorders can usually record audio as 16 bit/48 kHz stereo or twin
stereo tracks with 12 bit/32 kHz. This recorder can only record one stereo audio
track. Set “DV Rec Audio“ as required or Audio 1 or Audio 2 (page 32).
• The sampling rate of the digital sound input to the DV IN socket must be either
32 or 48 kHz (not 44.1 kHz).
• Recording may suffer from interference if the camcorder stops playing back, if a
part of the tape that has not been recorded on is played back, if the electricity
supply to the camcorder is cut off, or if the DV cable comes out.
Troubleshooting
If you are not receiving images and/or sound via the DV IN socket, check the
following:
• The DV cable must be properly connected.
• Switch off the camcorder that is connected, and switch it back on.
• Tune the audio input in to the recorder.
Recording from a digital camcorder
You can record from a camcorder that is connected to the DV IN socket in the
recorder‘s front panel. You can use the recorder‘s remote to control a cam-corder
and the recorder. Before recording, make sure that the audio input has been set
up for the DV IN socket (page 32).
The digital camcorder must be connected to the DV IN socket at
the front of the housing. Further information can be found on
page 20.
You can choose from between Audio 1 (original audio) and Audio
2 (overdubbed audio).
The DV input is set using the “DV Rec Audio“ submenu of the
main menu (page 32).
Select DV input.
“DV” is displayed in the display window of the recorder and on
the screen.
Search the position on the camcorder tape from which you want
to record.
For optimum results, interrupt play-back of the camcorder at the
point from which you want to record. Depending on the
camcorder you can operate the functions STOP, PLAY and PAUSE
with this recorder.
Start recording.
The recording is stopped automatically when the recorder detects
no signal.
Interrupt recording. Press again to continue.
End recording.
➠ You cannot use the recorder to control the camcorder while recording is in
progress.
➠ In Video mode, the last frame of the recording is shown on the screen for a
short time after recording has ended.
➠ For timer recordings to work properly on this recorder, the digital camcorder
should be switched on and operational.

Menu Title List and Chapter List
Under the Title List menu, video contents on unfinalised DVDs in VR mode and
video contents on the internal HDD can be edited. The available edit functions
are dependent on whether video on a DVD in VR mode or on the HDD or whether
original contents or playlists are edited.
DVD-RW discs in VR-mode can be edited in two ways. Original contents of the disc
can be edited directly or a playlist can be created and edited. The playlist does not
change the contents of the disc but controls its play-back.
The editing of recordings on the HDD is the same as editing of original contents
of a DVD-RW in the VR mode. Similar commands for deleting and naming titles as
well as a fine setting of the chapter contents within the titles are available.
➠ If the Title List menu of the HDD is displayed during recording, some titles
may have a marker. These titles have been recorded with a different input
setting to the current recorder setting. These titles cannot be played during
the recording.

Edit Original and Playlist
Create new Playlist
Title, Chapter and Parts
Titles of the original content of the disc contain one or more chapters. When inserting a title in the playlist, all the chapters within this title also appear. That means
that chapters in the playlist behave exactly the same as chapters on a DVD-Video
disc. Parts are sequences of the original or playlist titles. Parts can be added to or
deleted from the Original and Playlist menu. When adding a chapter or title to the
Playlist, a new title is created consisting of a sequence (= chapter) of an original
title. When deleting, part of the title of the Original or Playlist menu is deleted.
-RW VR
Use this function to add an original title or a chapter to the playlist. The whole title
is added to the playlist (you can delete parts you will not need later; see “Delete
title/chapter from Original/Playlist” on page 57).
The title appears in the playlist together with the chapter markers of the original.
When adding other chapter markers to the original later, however, these are not
copied automatically to the titles of the playlist. You can add a maximum 999
chapters to a disc. To add only one chapter of a title, read “Add title/chapter to
Playlist” on page 56.
➠ If you use the Delete, Edit and Move functions, the start and end frames may
not correspond exactly with the start and end points. A short pause may be
made between edits during play-back of the playlist. This is not a malfunction.
Original and Playlist
-RW VR
The terms Original and Playlist are used in this user guide for the actual contents

Dubbing
Before dubbing
With the dubbing function of this recorder you can
• create backup copies of important recordings on the HDD on a DVD.
• Create a DVD copy of a recording on the HDD for playing on other players.
• Copy films recorded on this recorder from DVD to hard disc.
• Copy edited movies from the HDD to a DVD.
High-Speed dubbing (maximum 12x)
Copying DVDs to the harddisc is a completely digital process and therefore takes
place with losing picture and sound quality. The dubbing process can take place
at high speed. When dubbing from HDD to DVD, the dubbing speed depends on
the recording quality and the DVD disc used.
Minimum duration for high-speed dubbing
The following table contains the respective minimum duration for dubbing a twohour movie recorded in SQ mode from HDD to DVD.
➠ Purchased video DVDs or disks that have been recorded on other recorders
cannot be copied onto the hard disk.
Disc type
➠ Titles which are shorter than 5 seconds cannot be copied from HDD to DVD.
