– Do not attach any seal or label to either side (the labeled side or the recorded side) of a disc.

– 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 recorder 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 preexisting 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

Playing media files using the
USB feature
The internal hard disk drive (HDD) is a fragile piece of
equipment. Please use the recorder following the
guidelines below to protect against possible HDD
failure.
We recommend that you back up your important
recordings onto DVD discs in order to protect against
accidental loss.
You can enjoy the media files such as pictures
(JPEG), movies (DivX) and tunes (MP3/WMA) saved
in an MP3 player or USB memory by connecting the
storage device to the USB port of this unit.
Do not move the recorder while it is on.
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, 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.
1. Connect the USB device to the USB port of the
unit.
2. Press HOME on the remote control.
3. Select [MUSIC], [PHOTO] or [MOVIE] option.
Details for the options are on page 19.
Compatible Devices
1. Devices which require additional program
installation when you have connected it to a
computer, are not supported.
2. MP3 Player: Flash type MP3 player.
• The MP3 player requiring installation of a driver
is not supported.
3. USB Flash Drive: Devices that support USB2.0 or
USB1.1.
Notes:
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.
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.

Speaker Positioning
In the case of normal position use the 6 speakers (2 front speakers, 1 center speaker, 2 rear speakers and
subwoofer).
If you want to play the excellent bass sound, DTS digital surround or Dolby Digital surround, you should connect
a subwoofer.
Hookup and
Settings
• Front speakers
According to your listening position set up the speakers for equal distance. And by hearing position set up the
interval between speakers to 45 degree.
• Center speaker
The center speaker and front speakers are ideally the same height. But normally place it above or below the
television.
• Rear speakers
Place left and right behind the listening area. These speakers recreate sound motion and atmosphere required
for surround sound playback. For best results, do not install the rear speakers too far behind the listening
position and install them at or above the level of the listener’s ears. It is also effective to direct the rear
speakers towards a wall or ceiling to further disperse the sound.
In the case of a smaller room size, if the audience is near to the rear wall set the rear speakers opposite each
other, and set the rear speakers above 60 - 90 cm than the listener’s ears.
• Subwoofer
This can be placed in any front position.

About DVD recording
Notes:
This recorder cannot make recordings on CD-R or
CD-RW discs.
Our company takes no responsibility for recording
failure due to power outages, defective discs, or
damage to the Recorder.
Fingerprints and small scratches on a disc can
affect playback and/or recording performance.
Please take proper care of your discs.
Notes:
The maximum number of titles that can be recorded
on the HDD is 999.
Using the HDD allows you to record a maximum of
12 hours continuously.
Notes for recording
Disc types and recording formats, modes,
and settings
This recorder can play six different kinds of DVD
discs: pre-recorded DVD-Video discs, DVD-RW,
DVD-R, DVD-RAM, DVD+RW and DVD+R discs.
The disc format for DVD-R, DVD+R, DVD+RW discs
is always “Video format”—the same as pre-recorded
DVD-Video discs. This means that once finalized, you
can play a DVD-R, DVD+R, or DVD+RW in a regular
DVD player. The DVD-RAM disc format is Video
Recording (VR) format.
The recording mode is closely related to the disc
format. If the disc format is Video Recording format,
then the recording mode is VR mode; if the disc
format is Video mode, then the recording mode is
Video mode (except for DVD-Video, which is not
recordable, and so does not have a recording mode).
Within the recording modes (which are fixed for them
whole disc) are the record settings. These can be
changed as required for each recording and
determine the picture quality and how much space the
recording will take up on the disc.
About HDD recording
Recording to the internal hard disk drive (HDD) is
basically similar to recording to a VR mode DVD-RW
disc. You have the full choice of recording quality
options, including the manual mode, and of course
you can record, erase and re-record as many times as
you like. The capacity of the hard disk drive means
that you can store many hours of video on it, even in
the higher quality recording modes.
38
The recording times shown are not exact because
the recorder uses variable bit-rate video
compression. This means that the exact recording
time will depend on the material being recorded.
When recording a TV broadcast, if the reception is
poor or the picture contains interference, the
recording times may be shorter.
If you record still pictures or audio only, the
recording time may be longer.
The displayed times for recording and time
remaining may not always add up to exactly the
length of the disc.
The recording time available may decrease if you
heavily edit a disc.
If using a DVD-RW disc, make sure you change the
recording format (Video mode or VR mode) before
you record anything on the disc. See page 24 (Disc
Format) for how to do this.
When using a DVD-R or DVD+R disc, you can keep
recording until the disc is full, or until you finalize the
disc. Before you start a recording session, check
the amount of recording time left on the disc.
When using a DVD+RW disc, recording time
available will only increase if you erase the last title
recorded on the disc.
The Delete Title option in the Title List (Original)
menu only hides the title, it does not actually erase
the title from the disc and increase the recording
time available (except for the last recorded title on a
DVD-RW disc in Video mode).
Overwrite recording is available using DVD+RW
discs.
When using a DVD+R/RW, the recorder will execute
the Menu-making operation to update the new title
and editing when removing the disc from the recorder
or turn off the recorder. So you must remove the disc
after selecting the recorder’s operation mode to DVD
mode.
Recording time and picture quality
There are four preset recording quality modes:
XP – Highest quality setting, gives about 1 hour of
recording time on a DVD (4.7GB).
SP – Default quality, sufficient for most applications,
gives about 2 hours of recording time on a DVD
(4.7GB).
LP – Slightly lower video quality, gives about 4 hour
of recording time on a DVD disc (4.7GB).
EP – Lowest video quality, gives about 6 hour of
recording time on a DVD (4.7GB).
You may see a fragmented picture during playing
back the contents recorded in EP mode.

Titles, Chapters and Parts
Titles in the disc’s original content contain one or
more chapters. When you insert a disc’s title into the
Playlist, all the chapters within that title also appear. In
other words, chapters in the Playlist behave exactly as
chapters on a DVD-Video disc do. Parts are sections
of Original or Playlist titles. From the Original and
Playlist menu you can add or delete parts. Adding a
chapter or title to the Playlist creates a new title made
up of a section (ie., chapter) of an Original title.
Deleting a part removes part of a title from the
Original or Playlist menu.
Caution
When editing using the Delete, Add and Move
functions, the start and end frames may not be
exactly as set in the start and end point display.
During Playlist playback, you may notice a
momentary pause between edits. This is not a
malfunction.
Is editing a DVD like editing a video
tape?
No. When you edit a video tape you need one video
deck to play the original tape and another to record
the edits. With DVD, you edit by making a ‘Playlist’ of
what to play and when to play it. On playback, the
Recorder plays the disc according to the Playlist.

RDS Operation
Programme Search (PTY)
This unit is equipped with RDS (Radio Data System),
which brings a wide range of information to FM radio.
Now in use in many countries, RDS is a system for
transmitting station call signs or network information, a
description of station programme type text message
about the station or specifics of musical selection and
the correct time.
A major benefit of RDS is its ability to encode
broadcasts with Programme Type (PTY) codes that
indicate the type of material being broadcast. The
following list shows the abbreviations used to indicate
each PTY along with an explanation of the PTY.
RDS Tuning
When a FM station is tuned in and it contains RDS
data, the unit will automatically display the station’s

the programme type is shown in the Display
Window.
RT (Radiotext)- A “text” message contains special
information from the broadcast station. Note that
this message may scroll across the display to
permit message.
CT (Time controlled by the channel)- Enables
the unit to receive the actual time and show it in the
Display Window.
Note:
Some RDS stations may not choose to include some of
these additional features. If the data required for the
selected mode is not being transmitted, the Display
Window will show a PTY NONE, RT NONE, CT NONE,
PS NONE message.
