Care and Safety Information
English
CAUTION!
High voltage! Do not open the
device. You run the risk of getting
an electric shock.
The machine does not contain any
user-serviceable parts. Please leave
all maintenance work to qualified
personnel.
Setup precautions
Finding a suitable location
– Place the set on a flat, hard and stable
surface. Do not place the set on a carpet.
– Do not position the set on top of
other equipment that might heat it up
(e.g., receiver or amplifier).
– Do not put anything under the set
(e.g., CDs, magazines).
– Install this unit near the AC outlet and
where the AC power plug can be
reached easily.
Space for ventilation
– Place the apparatus in a location with
adequate ventilation to prevent internal
heat build up. Allow at least 10 (4”) cm
clearance from the rear and the top of
the set and 5 (2”) cm from the left and
right to prevent overheating.
Avoid high temperatures, moisture,
water and dust
– Apparatus shall not be exposed to
dripping or splashing.
– Do not place any sources of danger
on the apparatus (e.g., liquid filled
objects, lighted candles).
Cleaning discs
Some problems occur because the disc
inside the recorder is dirty (frozen picture,
sound disruptions, picture distortions). To
avoid these problems, discs should be
cleaned on a regular basis.
To clean a disc, use a micro fibre cleaning
cloth and wipe the disc from the center
to the edge in a straight line.
CAUTION!
Do not use solvents such as benzene,
thinner, commercially available cleaners,
or anti-static sprays intended for discs.
HDD (Hard Disk Drive)
handling care
The HDD is a fragile piece of device that
is easily prone to damage due to its long
recording capacity and high speed
operation.
– Do not move the unit while it is
turned on.
– Do not remove the AC power plug
from the power outlet during operation.
– Do not use the unit in excessively hot
or humid places. It may cause
condensation to form inside the unit.
If the HDD fails, playback and recording
will not be possible. In this case, it will be
necessary to replace the HDD unit.
WARNING!
The HDD is not a device for storing
recorded content permanently. We
recommend that you copy the important
video content to a recordable DVD as
backup.

Connecting the antenna
cables
These connections enable you to watch
and record TV programs using this
recorder. If the antenna signal is
connected via a VCR, Cable Box or
Satellite Receiver, ensure that these
devices are turned on in order to watch
or record the cable programs.
If you want to connect to a VCR

B Use the supplied RF coaxial cable to
connect the TV-OUT
jack on the
recorder to the antenna input jack on
your TV (VHF/UHF RF IN).
Helpful Hint:
– Depending on how you have currently
connected your TV channel (directly from an
off-air antenna or Cable box or VCR), you
will have to disconnect some of the cables
before you make the above connection.
TIPS: Before making or changing any connections, make sure that all the devices are disconnected
from the power outlet.

plugs) to connect the AUDIO
OUTPUT jacks to these devices with
the same input jacks.
Option 2: Using a coaxial cable
You can connect the recorder to an AV
amplifier/receiver in order to enjoy

TIPS:
Discs for recording
There are several formats of DVD
recordable discs which can be used with
this recorder:
DVD±RW (DVD ReWritable discs)
– Discs that are rewritable can be used
for multiple recordings once the existing
data has been erased.
DVD±R (DVD Recordable discs)
– Discs that can only be used for a
single recording. Each new recording is
always added at the end of all previous
recordings as existing recordings cannot
be overwritten.
– Editing can be made on DVD±R discs
as long as they have not been finalized.
– To play a DVD±R disc on another
DVD player, it must be finalized (see
“Edit Recordings – Recordable DVD –
Playing your recordings (DVD±R) on
other DVD players”) After this is done,
no more content can be added to the
disc.
Ensure that there is sufficient space available on the DVD±R before recording. You have to finalize the
DVD±R before it can be played on other players, see “Playing your recordings on other DVD players.”

DVD±RW discs. They are fully compatible to
most of the existing DVD-Video players and
DVD-ROM drives in computers.

DVD recordable disc?
4.7GB, or equivalent to 6 CDs. You can store
only one hour of recordings on a single disc at
the highest quality (DVD standard) and about
8 hours recordings at the lowest quality
(VHS standard).
What is the difference between
DVD±R and DVD±RW?
DVD±Rs are “recordable” discs and
DVD±RWs are “rewritable” discs. With a
DVD±R disc, you can record multiple sessions
on the same disc, but when the disc is full, you
cannot record any more content on the disc.
The DVD±RW disc allows you to record over
the same disc repeatedly.

connect a DV-equipped camcorder to this
recorder using a single DV cable for input and
output of audio, video, data and control
signals.
– This recorder is only compatible with
DV-format (DVC-SD) camcorders. Digital
satellite tuners and Digital VHS video
recorders are not compatible.
– You cannot connect more than one DV
camcorder at a time to this recorder.
– You cannot control this recorder from
external equipment connected via the DV IN
jack.
Can I copy a VHS tape or DVD
from an external player?

copy-protected.
Chapter
Title
Chapter Chapter Chapter Chapter
chapter markers
A program is recorded as a single title, it may
consist of one chapter or a few chapters
within a title, depending on the recording
settings.
How do I set up Titles and Chapters?
The recorder will automatically create a new
Title each time you start a new recording.
– For DVD recordings, you can add chapters
manually.
– For HDD recordings, you can preset
chapters to be automatically inserted at
5-minutes intervals.
What does “finalizing” a disc do?
Finalizing a disc locks the disc so it can no
longer be recorded, only required for
recorable DVDs. It will then be compatible
with virtually any DVD player. To close a disc
without finalizing it, simply stop recording and
eject the disc. you will still be able to record
on the disc if there is room for more
recordings.
How good is the quality of the
recording?
There are six modes of record quality levels
to choose from, ranging from “HQ” (1 hour
recording at high quality) to “SEP” (8 hours
recording at VHS quality) on a recordable
DVD. Choose the quality level that best suits
your purpose and the length of material.
