How to use the DVD
Recorder-VCR
Step 1
Select the disc type
This unit can record on the following types of discs.
If you want to repeatedly record on the same disc or you want
to edit the disc after recording, select a rewritable DVD-RW or
DVD-RAM type disc. If you want to save a recording without
any changes, choose a non-rewritable DVD-R.
Step 2
Format the disc to start recording
Unlike a VCR, the recorder automatically starts formatting when
an unused disc is inserted. This is required for the preparation
of recording on a disc.
Using a DVD-RAM
This type of disc can be formatted in DVD-Video Recording format (VR mode). You can edit recorded images and create a
playlist in a specific sequence according to your requirements.
Using a DVD-RW
This type of disc can be formatted in either DVD-Video format
(Video mode) or DVD-Video Recording format (VR mode). For
an unused disc, a message that asks whether to format in VR
Mode or not is displayed. You can play a video mode disc on
various DVD components. A VR mode disc allows more varied
editing.
Using a DVD-R
This type of disc can be formatted in DVD Video format. After
formatting is complete, you can record on the disc. You can play
this type of disc on various DVD components only when they
have been finalized.
Note
You can only use one format on a DVD-RW.
You can change the DVD-RW format to another format. It should be noted that the data of
the disc may be lost when changing formats.

Step 3
Recording
There are two different recording methods: Direct Recording
and Timer Recording. Timer recording is classified as recording type : Once, Daily or Weekly or recording mode : XP
(high quality mode), SP (standard quality mode), LP (long
recording mode), and EP (extended mode) according to the
recording mode.
Step 6
Finalizing & Playing on
other DVD components
To play your DVD on other DVD components, finalizing may
be necessary. First, finish all editing and recording operations, then finalize the disc.
When using a DVD-RW disc in VR Mode
Although finalizing is generally unnecessary when playing
the disc on a VR Mode compatible component, a finalized
disc should be used for playback on that type of component.
When using a DVD-RW disc in Video Mode
Step 4
Playing
You can select the title you want to play in a displayed menu
and then immediately start playback.
A DVD consists of sections, called titles, and sub sections,
called chapters.
During recording, a title is created between two points where
you start and stop recording, DVD-R/DVD-RW discs(in
Video mode) can automatically create chapters according to
the recording mode when finalized.
Step 5
Editing a recorded disc
Editing on discs is easier than conventional video tapes. The
recorder supports many different edit functions, possible only
with DVDs.
With a simple and easy edit menu, you can operate various
edit functions, such as delete, copy, rename, lock, etc., on a
recorded title.
Creating a playlist (DVD-RAM/-RW in VR mode)
With this recorder, you can create a new playlist on the same
disc and edit it without the change of the original recording.
10 - English
The disc should be finalized first to enable playback on anything other than this recorder. No more editing or recording
can be made on the disc once it has been finalized.
To enable recording on the disc again, Disc should be
unfinalized.
When using a DVD-R disc
You should finalize the disc to play it on a component other
than this recorder. You cannot edit or record on the disc once
it has been finalized.

• Compared to standard interlaced video, progressive scan
doubles the amount of video beam lines fed to your TV,
resulting in a more stable, flicker-free, and clear image than
interlaced video. The progressive scan video output jack is
used in progressive output mode. This is only available
with TVs that support progressive scan.
• Consumers should note that not all high definition television sets are fully compatible with this product and may
cause artifacts to be displayed in the picture. If you experience 525 progressive scan picture problems, it is recommended that you switch the connection to the ‘standard
definition’ output. If there are questions regarding TV set
compatibility with this unit, please contact our customer

This allows you to connect your DVD Recorder-VCR to other
external devices and view or record their outputs.
Method 2 : Connecting a
Camcorder to the LINE IN 2 jacks
You can use the LINE IN 2 jacks on the front panel
of the DVD Recorder-VCR. You can record from connected
equipment.
When an input source is inserted into LINE IN 2 while viewing
TV, the input will be switched to LINE IN 2 automatically.
• Method 1 : Connecting a VCR, Set-Top Box(STB) or DVD
player to the AUDIO/VIDEO LINE IN 1 jacks.
• Method 2 : Connecting a Camcorder to the LINE IN 2 in
jacks.
• Method 3 : Connecting a Camcorder to the DV IN jack.
Method 1 : Connecting a VCR,
Settop Box(STB) or DVD player to

Step 6 : Connecting
the Power Cord
After all connections are complete, plug the power cord
in the wall outlet.
When it normally operates, the current time is automatically
set and displayed in the front panel display.
If “- - - -“ appears, however, it means that auto time setting
has failed.
In that case, set the current time through the manual clock
set, as shown in pages 25~26.
Install Batteries in the Remote Control
• Open the battery cover on the back of the remote.
• Insert two AAA batteries. Make sure that the polarities
(+ and -) are aligned correctly.
• Replace the battery cover.
If the remote does not operate properly:
• Check the polarity + - of the batteries (Dry-Cell)
• Check if the batteries are drained.
• Check if the remote sensor is blocked by obstacles.
• Check if there is any fluorescent lighting nearby.
Dispose of batteries according to local environmental regulations. Do not put them in the household trash.
