Glossary
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.
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 discs prohibit down-mixing and this unit can then
only output the front two channels.
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.
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.
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.
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.
Drive
In the instance of this unit, this refers to the disc (DVD), SD card
(SD) and PC card (PC). These perform the reading and writing of
data.
Letterbox: Black bands appear at the top and
bottom of the picture so the picture
itself appears in an aspect ratio of
16:9.
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.
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.)
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 DVD-RAM 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) are stored.
Formatting
Formatting is the process of making media such as DVD-RAM
recordable on recording equipment.
You can format the DVD-RAM and memory cards on this unit.
Formatting erases irrevocably all contents.
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.
Reference
Bitstream
This is the digital form of multi-channel audio data (e.g., 5.1 channel)
before it is decoded into its various channels.
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.
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.
Thumbnail
This refers to a miniature representation of a picture used to display
multiple pictures in the form of a list.
VBR (Variable bitrate)
This is a method of video recording that adjusts the bit rate
according to video signal.
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.

Reference
VPS (Video Programme System)/PDC (Programme Delivery Control)
VPS or PDC is a very convenient system which records exactly from
beginning to end of the TV programmes set in timer recording, even
if the actual broadcasting time differs from the scheduled time due to
delayed start or extension of the programme duration. Also, if a
programme is interrupted, for example, some special news is
inserted, the recording will be paused automatically and resumed
when the programme continues.
Depending on the signals sent from the TV stations, the VPS/PDC
system may not work properly even when “VPS/PDC” has been set
to “ON”.
Please check with the broadcasters in your area for details.
≥In the case of VPS/PDC recording, use the correct time (VPS/PDC
time) for recording the TV programmes.
Set “VPS/PDC” to “OFF” when the recording time is not the correct
time (VPS/PDC time).
VPS/PDC recording is not performed when the time (VPS/PDC
time) is incorrect, even if only by one minute. To find out the correct
time (VPS/PDC time), consult Teletext, a newspaper or magazine,
or other source.
≥If the actual broadcasting times of timer recordings overlap
(regardless of whether they are VPS/PDC controlled), the
recording that starts first always has priority, and the recording of
the later programme will start only after the first timer recording has
finished.
≥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:
Message
Message appears when:
This programme has A timer recording has just started.

Set DVD to timer
standby mode

10 minutes before the programmed
recording start time (message appears
every minute during these 10 minutes).
DVD is in timer
recording mode
[¥ REC] or [ShowView] was pressed 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.
[Note]
If “Power Save” is set to “On”, Direct TV Recording function does not
work when the unit is switched off (standby mode).
≥When the VPS/PDC signal drops out because the broadcast signal
is weak, or when a TV station does not transmit a regular VPS/
PDC signal, the timer recording will be performed in the normal
mode (without VPS/PDC) even if it was programmed for VPS/PDC.
In this case, even if the timer recording is performed, whatever has
been programmed will not be cancelled at that particular time but
at 4 a.m. two days later.
≥The start times of scheduled programmes listed in the newspaper
or magazine may be changed at a later date. Set “VPS/PDC” to
“OFF” when programming a programme whose start time has
been subsequently changed. Particular care must be taken in this
respect with SHOWVIEW programming since “VPS/PDC” is
automatically set to “ON” in some countries (➡below).
≥If a programme listed in a newspaper or magazine has two
SHOWVIEW numbers, use the SHOWVIEW number for VPS/PDC if
you wish to proceed with VPS/PDC recording using SHOWVIEW
programming.
≥The default settings for “VPS/PDC” differ depending on the country
concerned. Refer to the following table.

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
