loose or damaged wall outlets, extension cords, frayed power cords, or damaged or cracked wire insulation are dangerous. Any of these conditions could
result in electric shock or fire. Periodically examine the cord of your appliance,
and if its appearance indicates damage or deterioration, unplug it, discontinue
use of the appliance, and have the cord replaced with an exact replacement
part by an authorized service centre. Protect the power cord from physical or
mechanical abuse, such as being twisted, kinked, pinched, closed in a door, or
walked upon. Pay particular attention to plugs, wall outlets, and the point where
the cord exits the appliance. To disconnect power from the mains, pull out the
mains cord plug. When installing the product, ensure that the plug is easily
accessible.

Notes on discs
Restrictions on copying
Depending on the conditions of the recording equipment or the CD-R/RW (or
DVD±R/RW) disc itself, some CD-R/RW (or DVD±R/RW) discs cannot be
played on the unit.
Some video materials are copy-once protected: Such material cannot be copied
to HDD or DVD. You can identify copy-once protected material during playback
by displaying disc information on-screen.
Do not attach any seal or label to either side (the labeled side or the recorded side) of a disc.
NTSC format signals from the analog or the DV inputs are not recorded correctly with this unit.
Do not use irregularly shaped CDs (e.g., heart-shaped or octagonal). Doing
so may result in malfunctions.
Video signals in SECAM format (from the built-in TV tuner or from the analog inputs) are recorded in PAL format.
Depending on the recording software & the finalization, some recorded discs
(CD-R/RW or DVD±R/RW) may not be playable.
About the
Symbol Display
DVD-R/RW, DVD+R/RW and CD-R/RW discs recorded using a personal
computer or a DVD or CD Recorder may not play if the disc is damaged or
dirty, or if there is dirt or condensation on the Unit’s lens.
“
” may appear on your TV display during operation and indicate that the
function explained in this owner’s manual is not available on that specific media.
If you record a disc using a personal computer, even if it is recorded in a
compatible format, there are cases in which it may not play because of the
settings of the application software used to create the disc. (Check with the
software publisher for more detailed information.)
This unit has a regional code printed on the rear of the unit. This unit can play
only DVD discs labeled same as the rear of the unit or “ALL”.
This unit requires discs and recordings to meet certain technical standards
in order to achieve optimal playback quality. Pre-recorded DVDs are automatically set to these standards. There are many different types of recordable disc formats (including CD-R containing MP3 or WMA files) and these
require certain pre-existing conditions (see above) to ensure compatible
playback.
Customers should note that permission is required in order to download
MP3 / WMA files and music from the Internet. Our company has no right to
grant such permission. Permission should always be sought from the copyright owner.

General about connection
Picture and sound
Digital TV is a transmission technology that replaces the traditional analogue
technique.
This means that several TV channels, radio channels and other digital services
can be transmitted on the same space as just one analogue channel.
As a consumer you get access to many more channels and services with
perfect picture and audio quality.
Connecting your recorder is just as simple as connecting an old VCR recorder.
And by using a HDMI cable for connection you get the best picture quality to
your TV-set. The best audio experience can be obtained by connecting an optical cable to your sound system.
Component connection
Connect one end of the component(Y PB PR) cable to the COMPONENT OUTPUT jack on the HDD/DVD recorder and other end to the COMPONENT INPUT
jack on your TV.
Connect one ends of the audio cables (red and white) to the analog AUDIO
OUTPUT jack on the HDD/DVD recorder and other ends to the AUDIO INPUT
jack on your TV.
Coverage
Before buying this product it is anticipated that you have made sure that there
are digital transmissions covering your region.
Antenna / Signal source
You may decide to connect your HDD/DVD recorder to an indoor arial or an
external arial. Either of the two can give you variances on the signal strength. If
you live in a flat you should make sure that the digital terrestrial signals are distributed to your wall antenna outlet. If you have your own antenna system you
must make sure that it is equipped with antennas, filter and/or amplifier that can
handle those frequencies that the digital channels are transmitted on.
Cable-TV
Please observe that this recorder is not designed for the reception of regular
digital cable-TV signals (QAM-signal). Despite this, operators of smaller cable
networks may have chosen to distribute the digital terrestrial signals (COFDMsignal) in the network. In this case this recorder may be used.
10
If your television is a high-definition or “digital ready” television, you may take
advantage of the unit’s progressive scan output for the highest video resolution
possible. If your TV does not accept the Progressive Scan format, the picture
will appear scrambled with the progressive signal.
Set the resolution to 576p using the RES. button on the front panel of the
HDD/DVD recorder to obtain the 576p progressive signal.

S-Video connection
Digital audio connection
Connect one end of the S-Video cable to the S-VIDEO OUTPUT jack on the
HDD/DVD recorder and the other end to the S-Video INPUT jack on your TV.
Connect one end of the audio cable (red and white) to the analog AUDIO OUTPUT jack on the HDD/DVD recorder and the other ends to the AUDIO INPUT
jack on your TV.
Connecting to an amplifier/receiver, Dolby Digital/MPEG/DTS decoder or other
equipment with a digital input.
Connect one end of the digital audio cable (COAXIAL or OPTICAL) to the digital
audio output jack (COAXIAL or OPTICAL) on the HDD/DVD recorder and the
other end to the digital audio input jack (COAXIAL or OPTICAL) on your
amplifier.
This recorder does not perform internal (2 channel) decoding of a DTS sound
track. To enjoy DTS multi channel surround, you must connect this recorder to a
DTS compatible receiver via one of this recorder’s digital audio outputs.
