Useful features
This DVD Video recorder records high quality images
to rapid random access capable DVD-RAM media.
This has resulted in many new features that out
perform older tape formats. The following information
summarizes a few of these features.
Chasing playback
There is no need to wait until
recording is complete. Without
stopping recording, you can play
the video currently being
recorded from its beginning.
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
There is no need to rewind or search forward. Direct
Navigator guides you to the beginning of the recorded
video immediately.
Simultaneous Recording
and Playback
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.

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.
Down-mixing
This is the process of remixing the multi-channel audio found on
some discs into two channels for stereo output. It is useful when you
want to listen to the 5.1-channel audio recorded on DVDs through
your television’s speakers. Some discs prohibit down-mixing and this
unit can then only output the front two channels.
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 dialog 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 or DVD-R
etc. possible on equipment that can play such media. You can
finalize DVD-R on this unit.
You cannot record onto or edit finalized discs.
Formatting
Formatting is the process of making media such as DVD-RAM
recordable on recording equipment.
You can format the DVD-RAM on this unit. Formatting erases
irrevocably all recordings on the disc.
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
Frame
r
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.
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.

Glossary
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.
Letterbox: Black bands appear at the top and
bottom of the picture so the picture
itself appears in an aspect ratio of
16:9.
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 625 (or 576) interlaced (I) scan
lines, whereas progressive scanning, called 625P (or 576P), uses
twice the number of scan lines. For the NTSC standard, these are
called 525I (or 480I) and 525P (or 480P) 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.
Panasonic televisions with 625 (576)/50I · 50P, 525 (480)/60I · 60P
input terminals are progressive compatible.
Protection
You can prevent accidental erasure by setting writing protection or
erasure protection.
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.
Reference
VBR (Variable bitrate)
This is a method of video recording that adjusts the bit rate
according to video signal.
Q Link
This function works only if the unit is connected via a fully wired 21pin Scart lead to a TV featuring the Q Link or similar function.
Q Link offers the following functions:
≥Download from the TV§
When you connect the unit to a TV, the station list data is
automatically copied from the TV to the unit, and the TV stations
are assigned to the programme positions on the unit in the same
order as on the TV.
≥Direct TV Recording
By simply pressing [¥ DIRECT TV REC], you can at once record
the same programme that you are watching on the TV.
≥TV/DVD Auto On§
Even if the TV and the unit are off (standby mode), pressing
[1] (PLAY), [DIRECT NAVIGATOR, TOP MENU], [VIDEO Plus+]
or [PROG/CHECK] automatically turns on both the TV and the unit.
If the TV is off (standby mode) and the unit is on, when you press
[FUNCTIONS] or [1] (PLAY), or insert the disc (except DVD-RAM
and DVD-R), the TV automatically is turned on.
≥DVD Auto Standby§
When you turn the TV off, the unit is turned off as well. However,
this function works in the stop mode.
This function does not work during the following operations: Preset
Download, Auto-Setup, Auto Clock Setting and Manual Tuning.
This function does also not work when an audio CD is in the disc
tray.
≥On-Screen Messages§
When you are watching a TV programme, the following messages
appear on the TV screen to inform you of the unit’s condition:

while the unit is in the timer recording
mode.
Depending on the type of TV used, the above messages may not
appear correctly.
§
These operations are only available if the unit is connected to a TV
featuring the Q Link function.
PDC (Programme Delivery Control)
Programme Delivery Control adjusts the start and stop time of a timer recording automatically to ensure the recording starts and finishes in line
with the programme broadcast. This is useful when a programme over-runs the published times.
The station must be transmitting PDC and the exact time must be set for PDC to work.
The unit detects whether a station is transmitting PDC only during the tuning process.
If PDC is introduced or discontinued by a station you will need to re-tune the unit before it becomes aware of this.
PDC transmissions are not currently nation-wide so please check with your local broadcaster for more information.
The beginnings of recordings may not be recorded correctly in some cases.

Safety precautions
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.
Foreign matter
Do not let metal objects fall inside the unit. This can cause electric
shock or malfunction.
Do not let liquids get into the unit. This can cause electric shock or
malfunction. If this occurs, immediately disconnect the unit from the
power supply and contact your dealer.
Do not spray insecticides onto or into the unit. They contain
flammable gases which can ignite if sprayed into the unit.
Service
Do not attempt to repair this unit by yourself. If sound is
interrupted, indicators fail to light, smoke appears, or any other
problem that is not covered in these instructions occurs, disconnect
the AC mains lead and contact your dealer or an authorized service
center. Electric shock or damage to the unit can occur if the unit is
repaired, disassembled or reconstructed by unqualified persons.
Extend operating life by disconnecting the unit from the power
source if it is not to be used for a long time.
