Useful features
This DVD Video recorder records high quality images to rapid random access capable HDD (Hard disk drive) and DVD-RAM. This
has resulted in many new features that outperform older tape formats. The following information summarizes a few of these
features.
Instant recording
You no longer need to search for empty disc space. By pressing the
recording button, the unit finds available recording space and begins
recording right away. There is no need to worry about overwriting
already recorded content.
Instant play
Getting started
There is no need to rewind or search forward. Direct Navigator
guides you to the beginning of the recorded video immediately.
Transferring (dubbing)/editing/playing MPEG4
titles
≥While recording programmes to the HDD you can simultaneously
record them as MPEG4 titles. By then transferring (dubbing) these
MPEG4 titles from the HDD to a SD Memory Card or
MultiMediaCard, you can view them on a SD Video Camera etc.
≥You can also transfer (dub) MPEG2 titles recorded on a SD Video
Camera etc, to HDD or DVD-RAM.
HDD recording
Chasing playback
You can keep on recording your favorite programmes to an internal
HDD that is able to record up to 709 hours [EP (8 Hour) mode].
You can also high speed transfer (dub) your favorite programmes to
DVD-RAM or DVD-R and create a backup disc.
There is no need to wait until recording is
complete. Without stopping recording,
you can play the video currently being
recorded from its beginning.
LAN terminal, SD/PC card slots, DV input terminal
Simultaneous Recording and
Playback
This unit is equipped with interfaces that allow networking
with digital equipment.
≥The LAN terminal of this unit lets you connect to a computer for
easy text input when giving names to video titles. This also allows
playback of MPEG4 titles and viewing of JPEG. You can also
connect to another network compatible Panasonic DVD recorder
for more video playback choice.
≥The SD/PC card slots of this unit let you transfer (dub) digital
camera photographs from a card to DVD-RAM for easy storage
without using a computer.
≥The DV automatic recording function of this unit lets you easily
transfer (dub) digital images to the HDD by connecting only a
single DV cable.
While recording, you can play another
video programme that was recorded
previously.
Time Slip
During play and also while recording, you
can jump to the scene you wish to view by
specifying the skip time.

∫ Component video output
Component signal outputs the colour difference signals (PB/PR) and luminance signal (Y) separately in order to achieve high fidelity in
reproducing colours. If the television is compatible with progressive output, a high quality picture can be output because this unit’s component
video output terminal outputs a progressive output signal (➡page 68).
For progressive output (➡page 12)
∫ Connecting to a television with 21-pin Scart
terminal
You can also connect with the AV1 terminal on this unit using the
21-pin Scart cable.
If your television is equipped with RGB input capability, by
connecting with a fully wired 21-pin Scart cable you can see video
using RGB output on this unit.
To output in RGB select “RGB (without component)” from “AV1
Output” in the SETUP menu (➡page 63).
RGB refers to the three primary colours of light, red (R), green (G),
and blue (B) and also the method of producing video that uses
them. By dividing the video signal into the three colours for
transmission, noise is reduced for even higher quality images.
∫ Connecting to a VCR with 21-pin Scart terminal
You can also connect with the AV2 terminal on this unit using the
21-pin Scart cable.
To input in RGB select “RGB (Not NTSC)” from “AV2 Input” in the
SETUP menu (➡ page 63).

HDD (Hard disk drive) handling care
∫ The HDD is a device that is not built to withstand
vibration/shock or dust
Depending on the setup environment and handling of the HDD some
content may become damaged and play and recording may no
longer be possible. Especially during operation, do not subject the
unit to any vibration, shock, or remove the AC mains lead from the
household mains socket. In the event of a power failure the content
during recording or play may be damaged.
∫ Setup precautions
≥Do not place in an enclosed area so the rear cooling fan
and the cooling vents on the side are covered up.
≥Place the unit on a surface that is flat and not subject to
vibration or impact.
≥Do not place on anything that
generates heat like a video cassette
recorder etc.
This unit
≥Do not place in an area often subject to
VCR
temperature changes.
≥Place in an area where condensation
does not occur. Condensation is a phenomenon where moisture
forms on a cold surface when there is an extreme change in
temperature. Condensation may cause internal damage to the
unit.
≥Conditions where condensation may occur
–When there is an extreme change in temperature (moving from
a very hot location to a very cold location, or vice versa, or when
subjected to an air conditioner or when cooled air directly
impacts the unit.) When the HDD (warms during operation) is
subjected to cold air, condensation may form on the inside of the
HDD and may cause damage to the HDD heads etc.
–When there is high humidity or a lot of steam in the room.
–During the rainy season.
∫ The HDD is a temporary storage device
The HDD is not an everlasting storage device for recorded content.
Use the HDD as a temporary storage place for viewing once, editing,
or for saving to a DVD disc.
∫ Immediately save (backup) all content as soon
as you feel there may be problem with the HDD
If there is an irregularity within the HDD, strange sounds or problems
with picture (block noise etc.) may result. Using the HDD in this
condition may worsen the problem and in the worst case the HDD
may no longer become usable. As soon as you notice this type of
problem, save all content to the DVD disc.
Recorded content (Data) on a HDD that has become unusable is
unrecoverable.
Getting started
The HDD is a high precision recording instrument and because of its
long recording capability and high speed operation it is a very
special device that is easily susceptible to damage.
As a basic rule, save important video content to a DVD disc as
backup.
∫ Cigarette smoke etc. causes malfunction or
breakdown
The unit may breakdown if cigarette smoke or bug spray/vapor
etc. gets inside the unit.
∫ While operating
≥Do not move the unit or subject to vibration or impact. (The
HDD may become damaged.)
≥Do not remove the AC mains lead from the household mains
socket, or flip the power breaker switch.
While the unit is on, the HDD is rotating at high speed. Sound or
movement due to rotation is normal.
∫ When moving the unit
1 Turn the unit off. (Wait until “BYE” disappears from the
display.)
2 Remove the AC mains lead from the household mains socket.
3 Move only after the unit has come to a complete stop (approx.
2 minutes) in order to avoid subjecting to vibration and shock.
(Even after turning the unit off, the HDD continues operating
for a short time.)
≥In the above situation, without turning the unit on, let the unit
adjust to the room temperature and wait 2–3 hours until
condensation is gone.
∫ HDD recording time remaining
This unit records using a VBR (Variable bit rate) data compression
system to vary recorded data segments to match video data
segments which may cause differences in the displayed amount of
time and space remaining for recording.
If the remaining amount time is insufficient, erase any unwanted
titles to create enough space before you start recording. (Erasing a
play list will not increase the amount of time.)
∫ When “HDD SLP (SLEEP)” appears in the
display
The HDD has automatically gone into SLEEP mode in order to
extend the life of the HDD. (While power is supplied, the HDD rotates
at high speed. If there is no disc in the unit, the HDD will go into
SLEEP mode after there has been no operation for 30 minutes or
longer.)
≥Press [HDD] to activate.
≥While in SLEEP mode play or recording may not begin right away
because the HDD takes time to be re-activated.
≥When not using the unit, we recommend removing the disc in the
tray in order to set the HDD to the SLEEP mode.
∫ Indemnity concerning recorded content
Panasonic does not accept any responsibility for damages directly or indirectly due to any type of problems that result in loss of recording or
edited content (data), and does not guarantee any content if recording or editing does not work properly. Likewise, the above also applies in
the case any type of repair is made to the unit (including any other non-HDD related component).

Glossary
Bitstream
This is the digital form of multi-channel audio data (e.g., 5.1 channel)
before it is decoded into its various channels.
CPRM (Content Protection for Recordable Media)
CPRM is technology used to protect broadcasts that are allowed to
be recorded only once. Such broadcasts can be recorded only with
CPRM compatible recorders and discs.
DHCP (Dynamic Host Configuration Protocol)
Provides a mechanism for automatically assigning network
information such as the IP address or Subnet mask sent by the
router and so on to this unit.
DNS server
A server which acts like a telephone directory and translates Internet
domain names into IP address.
Dolby Digital
This is a method of coding digital signals developed by Dolby
Laboratories. Apart from stereo (2-channel) audio, these signals can
also be multi-channel audio. A large amount of audio information can
be recorded on one disc using this method.
When recording on this unit Dolby Digital (2 channel) is the default
audio.
Down-mixing
This is the process of remixing the multi-channel audio found on
some discs into two channels. It is useful when you want to listen to
the 5.1-channel audio recorded on DVDs through your television’s
speakers. Some DVD-Audio prevent down-mixing of all or part of
their contents. When playing such discs, or such parts of the disc,
unless the number of connected speakers is the same as the disc’s
channel specification, audio will not be output properly.
DPOF (Digital Print Order Format)
DPOF is the standard printing format for still picture data taken by a
digital camera, etc. It is used for automatic printing at a photo
developing store or on your home printer.
DTS (Digital Theater Systems)
This surround system is used in many movie theaters. There is good
separation between the channels, so realistic sound effects are
possible.
Dynamic range
Dynamic range is the difference between the lowest level of sound
that can be heard above the noise of the equipment and the highest
level of sound before distortion occurs.
Dynamic range compression means reducing the gap between the
loudest and softest sounds. This means you can listen at low
volumes but still hear dialogue clearly.
Film and video
DVD-Videos are recorded using either film or video. This unit can
determine which type has been used, then uses the most suitable
method of progressive output.
For PAL
Film is 25 frames per second.
Video is 50 fields per second (two fields making up one frame).
For NTSC
Film is 24 or 30 frames per second, with motion picture film generally
being 24 frames per second.
Video is 60 fields per second (two fields making up one frame).
Finalize
A process that makes play of a recorded CD-R, CD-RW, DVD-R, etc.
possible on equipment that can play such media. You can finalize
DVD-R on this unit.
After finalizing, the disc becomes play-only and you can no longer
record or edit.
Folder
This is a place on the hard disk or memory card where groups of
data are stored together. In the case of this unit, it refers to the place
where still pictures (JPEG, TIFF) or MPEG4 are stored.
Structure of folders displayed by this unit (➡below)
Drive
In the instance of this unit, this refers to the hard disk (HDD), disc
(DVD), SD card (SD) and PC card (PC). These perform the reading
and writing of data.

Formatting
Formatting is the process of making media such as DVD-RAM
recordable on recording equipment.
You can format the HDD, DVD-RAM and memory cards on this unit.
Formatting erases irrevocably all contents.
Frames and fields
Frames refer to the single images that constitute the video you see
on your television. Each frame consists of two fields.
u
r
Frame
Field
Field
≥A frame still shows two fields, so there may be some blurring, but
picture quality is generally better.
≥A field still shows less picture information so it may be rougher, but
there is no blurring.
Gateway
IP address of the electronic device providing Internet access.
Usually called a router IP address. (e.g., 192.168.0.1)
HDD (Hard disk drive)
This is a mass data storage device used in computers etc. A disk
with a surface that has been treated with magnetic fluid is spun and
a magnetic head is brought in close proximity to facilitate the reading
and writing of large amounts of data at high speed.
Hub
Used for connecting more than one device to the network.
IP address
A set of numbers which distinguish each computer on the network
when, for example, connected to the Internet. When using a
computer in a LAN (➡ below) to access a computer or device not
part of the LAN, the IP address is called the local IP address. (e.g.,
192.168.0.10)
JPEG (Joint Photographic Experts Group)
This is a system used for compressing/decoding colour still pictures.
If you select JPEG as the storage system on digital cameras etc.,
the data will be compressed to 1/10–1/100 of its original size. The
feature of JPEG is less deterioration in picture quality considering
the degree of compression.
Reference
LAN (Local Area Network)
A group of linked devices in a company, school or home. Indicates
the boundaries of a particular network.
68
Playback control (PBC)
If a Video CD has playback control, you can select scenes and
information with menus.
(This unit is compatible with version 2.0 and 1.1.)
Progressive/Interlace
The PAL video signal standard has 576 (or 625) interlaced (i) scan
lines, whereas progressive scanning, called 576p (or 625p), uses
twice the number of scan lines. For the NTSC standard, these are
called 480i (or 525i) and 480p (or 525p) respectively.
Using progressive output, you can enjoy the high-resolution video
recorded on media such as DVD-Video.
Your television must be compatible to enjoy progressive video.
Protection
You can prevent accidental erasure by setting writing protection or
erasure protection.
Router
Distinguishes the IP address assigned to each device, such as the
computer, and relays the flow of data within the network.
Sampling frequency
Sampling is the process of converting the heights of sound wave
(analog signal) samples taken at set periods into digits (digital
encoding). Sampling frequency is the number of samples taken per
second, so larger numbers mean more faithful reproduction of the
original sound.
Subnet mask
Enables efficient network use. A set of numbers which identify which
part of the IP address allocated to every device connected to the
router is the network portion.
TCP/IP (Transmission Control Protocol/Internet Protocol)
These are the standard protocols for sending and receiving data.
Thumbnail
This refers to a miniature representation of a picture used to display
multiple pictures in the form of a list.
MAC (Media Access Control) address
Address assigned to each device connected to the network to allow
it to be recognized.
TIFF (Tag Image File Format)
This is a system used for compressing/decoding colour still pictures.
A common format for storing high quality images on digital cameras
and other devices.
MPEG2/MPEG4 (Moving Picture Experts Group)
A standard for efficiently compressing and expanding color video.
MPEG2 is a compression standard used for DVD and satellite based
digital broadcasting. This unit records programmes using MPEG2.
MPEG4 is a compression standard created for use with mobile
equipment and use over networks, providing highly efficient
recordings even with low bit rates.
68
Letterbox: Black bands appear at the top and
bottom of the picture so the picture
itself appears in an aspect ratio of
16:9.
LPCM (Linear PCM)
These are uncompressed digital signals, similar to those found on
CDs. LPCM sound is available when recording in XP mode.
MP3 (MPEG Audio Layer 3)
An audio compression method that compresses audio to
approximately one tenth of its size without any considerable loss of
audio quality. You can play MP3 you have recorded onto CD-R and
CD-RW.
RQT7756
Pan&Scan/Letterbox
In general, DVD-Video are produced with the intention that they be
viewed on a widescreen television (16:9 aspect ratio), so images
often don’t fit regular (4:3 aspect ratio) televisions. Two styles of
picture, “Pan & Scan” and “Letterbox”, deal with this problem.
Pan & Scan: The sides are cut off so the picture
fills the screen.
VBR (Variable bitrate)
This is a method of video recording that adjusts the bit rate
according to video signal.

Maintenance/Disc and card handling
Unit care
The precision parts in this unit are readily affected by the
environment, especially temperature, humidity, and dust.
Cigarette smoke also can cause malfunction or breakdown.
To clean this unit, wipe with a soft, dry cloth.
≥Never use alcohol, paint thinner or benzine to clean this unit.
≥Before using chemically treated cloth, read the instructions that
came with the cloth carefully.
Observe the following points to ensure continued listening and
viewing pleasure.
Dust and dirt may adhere to the unit’s lens over time, making it
impossible to record or play discs.
Use the DVD-RAM/PD lens cleaner (LF-K123LCA1, where
available) about once every year, depending on frequency of use
and the operating environment. Read the lens cleaner’s instructions
carefully before use.
Disc and card handling
∫ How to hold a disc or
card
Do not touch the recorded
surface or the terminal surface.
∫ If there is dirt or condensation on the disc
[RAM] [DVD-R]
≥Clean with an optional DVD-RAM/PD disc cleaner (LF-K200DCA1,
where available).
≥Do not use cleaners for CDs or cloths.
[DVD-A] [DVD-V] [VCD] [CD]
Wipe with a damp cloth and then wipe dry.
∫ Handling precautions
≥Do not attach labels or stickers to discs. (This may cause disc
warping and un-balanced rotation, rendering it unusable.)
≥Do not write on the label side with a ball-point pen or other writing
instrument.
≥Do not use record cleaning sprays, benzine, thinner, static
electricity prevention liquids or any other solvent.
≥Do not use scratch-proof protectors or covers.
≥Do not expose the terminals of the card to water, garbage or other
strange things.
≥Do not use the following discs:
–Discs with exposed adhesive from removed stickers or labels
(rented discs etc).
–Discs that are badly warped or cracked.
–Irregularly shaped discs, such as heart shapes.
≥Do not place in the following areas:
–In direct sunlight.
–In very dusty or humid areas.
–Near a heater
–Where static electricity or electromagnetic waves occur
Placement
Set the unit up on an even surface away from direct sunlight, high
temperatures, high humidity, and excessive vibration. These
conditions can damage the cabinet and other components, thereby
shortening the unit’s service life.
Do not place heavy items on the unit.
Voltage
Do not use high voltage power sources. This can overload the unit
and cause a fire.
Do not use a DC power source. Check the source carefully when
setting the unit up on a ship or other place where DC is used.
AC mains lead protection
Ensure the AC mains lead is connected correctly and not
damaged. Poor connection and lead damage can cause fire or
electric shock. Do not pull, bend, or place heavy items on the lead.
Grasp the plug firmly when unplugging the lead. Pulling the AC
mains lead can cause electric shock.
Do not handle the plug with wet hands. This can cause electric
shock.
