Typically, DVD VIDEO discs are made up of larger units called
“titles”. Each title has a number (title number) that can be used
to select desired titles. Titles are further divided into units called
“chapters”. Each chapter has a number (chapter number) that
can also be used to select desired chapters. Note that some discs
are not divided into titles and chapters.
When you record a programme on a DVD-RAM/RW (VR mode)
disc
A single recording session results in a single title (a single
chapter). However, chapter marks are automatically inserted
when recording is paused, or audio changes from monaural or
bilingual to stereo due to commercial breaks, etc. It is also
possible to insert chapter marks at desired locations during
playback. (墌 pg. 32)
When you record a programme on a DVD-R/RW (Video mode)
disc
A single recording session results in a single title (a single
chapter). However, chapter marks are automatically inserted
when recording is paused, or audio changes due to commercial
breaks, etc. It is also possible to insert chapter marks at desired
locations during either recording or playback. Once the disc has
been finalised, these chapter marks are deleted and new chapter
marks are assigned automatically approximately every 5
minutes.

How to handle discs
When handling a disc, do
not touch the surface of the
disc. Since discs are made
of plastic, they are easily
damaged. If a disc gets dirty,
dusty, scratched or warped,
the images and sound will
not be picked up correctly,
and such a disc may cause the unit to malfunction.
Label side
Do not damage the label side, stick paper to or use any
adhesives on its surface.

Remote control
● Pressing the button on the unit or on the remote control again
closes the disc tray.
● Use the buttons on the unit or on the remote control to open
and close the disc tray.
● Do not block the disc tray with your hand while it is opening
or closing as this may result in hardware failure.
● Do not place unplayable discs or any object other than a disc
on the disc tray.
● Do not press down strongly on the disc tray or place any heavy
objects on it.
Discs without cartridges
Recording side
Make sure that discs are not scratched and dirty on the recording
side before use. Scratches and dirt on the recording side of a disc
may hinder proper playback and recording. Also be careful that
a DVD-RAM disc may get scratched or dirt when removed from
cartridge then put back in after use.
Storage
Make sure that discs are kept in their cases. If discs are piled on
top of one another without their protective cases, they can be
damaged. Do not put discs in a location where they may be
exposed to direct sunlight, or in a place where the humidity or
temperature is high. Avoid leaving discs in your car!
Maintenance of discs

Y/ON
Disc tray
Place the disc on the disc tray with the label side facing up.
Since disc size changes depending on the disc to be played
back, be sure to correctly align the disc with the grooves for its
size. If the disc is not in its groove, it may be scratched or
otherwise damaged. To insert an 8 cm disc, place it according to
the inner groove.
If there are fingerprints or other dirt
adhering to a disc, wipe with a soft dry
cloth, moving from the centre outwards.
If a disc is difficult to clean, wipe with a
cloth moistened with water. Never use
record cleaners, petrol, alcohol or any
anti-static agents.
CAUTION
Sometimes during playback, noise may appear or images
may be garbled. This is sometimes due to the disc. (It may not
be up to industry standards.)
These symptoms are caused by the discs, not by the
malfunction of the unit.
DVD-RAM discs contained in cartridges
Double-sided discs:
Remove the disc from the cartridge. Align the disc with the
grooves on the disc tray as shown in the illustration and insert
with the side you wish to play back or record facing down. If you
insert the disc with “Side A” facing down, programmes are
recorded on the side A.
Single-sided discs:
Remove the disc from the cartridge. Align the disc with the
grooves on the disc tray as shown in the illustration and insert
with the label side facing up.

the oldest memorized point. Stopping playback of a disc for
which a resume point is already stored may change the order
in which the points are stored. This may potentially change the
order in which points are deleted.
● When the unit memorizes a resume point for a disc, it also
remembers audio language, subtitle and angle settings.
● This function may not work for some Video CD or SVCD.
● When “RESUME” is changed to “ON” or “OFF”, resume
points of the discs memorized with “RESUME” set to “DISC
RESUME” will be cleared.

Recording Speed
MPEG2 format is used as recording format. As a guide for picture
quality, the “bps” unit is used to represent how much data can
be recorded per second. The larger this value is, the better the
picture quality becomes but more capacity is required for the
recording. Select XP or SP for programmes where quick
movement occurs, such as sports programmes, and LP or EP for
talk shows, etc. with relatively less movement.
The recording speeds for a 4.7 GB disc are set as follows:

NOTES:
To record the entire programme, the unit automatically set the
appropriate recording speed depending on the combination of
the total time of the programme to be recorded and either the
remaining disc space or the specified recording time (from 60
minutes to 480 minutes).
To record the entire programme within the actual
remaining disc space
Select “FR (JUST)” in a recording speed selection procedure.
(墌 pg. 55, 57)
● Note that this function is available only for timer programming
recording.
To record the entire programme by specifying the
desired recording time
Select “FR60–FR360”, “FR420” or “FR480” in a recording speed
selection procedure. (墌 pg. 51, 55, 57)
To record a 25-min. long daily programme five times just
on a same disc for example
Perform “SHOWVIEW Timer Programming” (墌 pg. 54)
procedure. Be sure to set the recording speed to “FR125” and set
Weekly/Daily Rec Function to “MON–FRI” in step E to fit the
total recording time to the whole disc space.
®
● You can programme this unit to timer-record, regardless of the
disc remaining time. When the disc remaining time is not
enough, recording may stop in the middle of a programme. To
avoid this, make sure of the disc remaining time before setting
timer-programming.
(Example) If you programmed to timer-record for 60 minutes
in SP mode on a 120-minute disc, the disc remaining time
would be 30 minutes in XP mode, 60 minutes in SP mode,
120 minutes in LP mode, 180 minutes in EP mode, and 240
minutes in FR480 mode. Timer-recording will not complete
beyond these remaining times.
● The maximum recording time of FR (JUST) mode is the same
as the recording time of FR480 mode. When timerprogramming a long programme in FR (JUST) mode on a disc
whose remaining time is short, it is recommended checking
the disc remaining time in FR480 mode to see if the remaining
time is enough for the programme.
● Even if more than one programme are timer-programmed in
FR (JUST) mode, only the first one is recorded.
● In order to ensure that the recording fits on the disc, this
feature may leave a slight non-recorded section at the end of
the disc.
● There may be some noise and sound disturbance at the point
on the disc where the unit switches the mode.

● If the quality of stereo sound being received is poor, the
broadcast might be received in monaural with better quality.
Selection of the audio channel to be
recorded on a disc
When a programme is recorded on a DVD-RAM or DVD-RW
disc in VR mode, all audio channels of the receiving programme
are recorded on the disc. When you record a programme on a
DVD-R or DVD-RW disc in video mode, select the desired audio
channel (from among “NICAM 1/MAIN”, “NICAM 2/SUB”,
“MONO”) to be recorded on the disc. (墌 pg. 92)

VPS/PDC Recording
Now available from some TV stations, PDC (Programme
Delivery Control) and VPS (Video Programme System) are
services designed to assure safe, accurate timer recording.
With this system, special code signals are transmitted
together with the audio/video signals. These code signals
control your video unit and have precedence over the
advertised times you may have preset into the timer. This
means that your unit will start and stop recording when the
preset TV programmes actually start and end — even if the
broadcast time of a preset TV programme is changed.
NOTES:
K Engage the unit’s timer mode.
● When you use Manual Timer Programming, set the start
time (VPS or PDC time) exactly as advertised in the TV
listing. A different time than advertised will result in no
recording.
● VPS/PDC recording is also possible when a satellite
receiver or a cable system is connected to L-2 IN/
DECODER connector on your unit.
● VPS/PDC recording is also possible via the L-1 IN/OUT
connector.

B Place a recordable disc on the disc tray.
On-Disc Timer Programming is a function used with discs that
are especially intended for a specific programme. The disc is
then programmed for a programme you always watch every day
or every week. Since older programs are automatically
overwritten, a single DVD-RAM/RW (VR mode) disc can be used
without worrying about how much recording capacity remains.

● Turn on the unit.
● Turn on the TV and select the AV mode.
● Slide the TV/CABLE/SAT/DVD switch to DVD.
● Make sure that the unit’s built-in clock is set properly.
ATTENTION:
● On-Disc Timer Programming is possible only with the disc

GLOSSARY
111
8 Aspect ratio
8 Multiangle
The ratio of vertical and horizontal sizes of a displayed image.
The horizontal vs. vertical ratio of conventional TVs is 4:3, and
that of wide-screens is 16:9.
By recording multiple scenes progressing at the same time in a
single title, the user can select view angles. This feature is called
the multiangle function.
8 Chapter
8 Multichannel
Refers to individual chapters included in a title.
DVD is specified to have each sound track constitute one sound
field. Multichannel refers to a structure of sound tracks having
three or more channels.
8 Composite video signal
Refers to video signal comprised of three kinds of signals
combined: an image signal made up of luminance and
chrominance signals using the frequency multiplication
technique; burst signal providing the basis for colour
reproduction; and synchronization signal.
8 Component video signal
A video signal system where parts of information necessary for
reproducing image signal comprised of the three primary
colours of light are transmitted via separate signal lines. Types of
signal, such as R/G/B, Y/PB/PR, etc., are available.
8 Disc menu
A screen display prepared for allowing selection of images,
sounds, subtitles, multiangles, etc. recorded on a DVD disc.
8 Dolby Digital (AC-3)
A six-channel system consisting of left, centre, right, left rear,
right rear and LFE (Low-Frequency Effect channel, for use with a
sub-woofer) channels. All processing is done in the digital
domain.
Not all Dolby Digital discs contain six (5.1) channels of
information.
8 Down-mix
Internal stereo mix of multichannel surround audio by a DVD
player. The down-mix signals are output from stereo output
connectors.
8 DTS
A Digital Surround audio encoding format configured with six
(5.1) channels, similar to Dolby Digital. It requires a decoder,
either in the player or in an external receiver. DTS stands for
Digital Theater Systems.
Not all DTS discs contain six (5.1) channels of information.
8 Multilanguage
When a title is created to cope with multiple languages, it is
generally called a multilanguage title.
8 NTSC (National television system committee)
A black and white and colour television system format used in
the U.S.A., Canada, Mexico and Japan.
8 PAL (Phase Alternation by Line)
A colour television system format used extensively in Western
Europe.
8 Parental Lock
A feature of this system to automatically determine whether or
not to reproduce particular DVD software by comparing its
parental lock level (a measure of undesirability of scenes, etc.
from educational viewpoint) set for the software beforehand
with that set on this system by the user; if the software’s level is
less restrictive than the user-set level, it will be reproduced.
8 Playback control (PBC)
Refers to the signal recorded on Video CD/SVCDs for controlling
reproduction. By using menu screens recorded on a Video CD/
SVCD that supports PBC, you can enjoy interactive-type
software as well as software having a search function.
8 Progressive scan
Progressive scan displays all the horizontal lines of a picture at
one time, as a single frame. This system can convert the
interlaced video from DVD into progressive format for
connection to a progressive display. It dramatically increases the
vertical resolution.
8 Region Code
In the conventional video system, a picture is shown on the
display monitor in two halves. The Interlaced scan system places
lines of the second half of the picture in-between lines of the first
half of the picture.
A system for allowing discs to be played back only in the regions
designated beforehand. All the countries in the world are
grouped into six regions, each region being identified by a
specified Region Code (or region number). If the Region Code
given to a disc includes a numeral which matches one in the
Region Code of a player, the player can play back the disc.
8 JPEG
8 Sampling frequency
A still-picture data compression system proposed by the Joint
Photographic Expert Group, which features small decrease in
image quality in spite of its high compression ratio.
Frequency of sampling data when analog data is converted to
digital data. Sampling frequency numerically represents how
many times the original analog signal is sampled per second.
8 Letter box
8 Surround
A method of displaying wide images like movies in the centre of
a 4:3 TV screen with no part of the image deleted, by placing
black bands on the top and bottom of the screen. This name has
resulted from the screen form looking literally like a letter box.
A system for creating three-dimensional sound fields full of
realism by arranging multiple speakers around the listener.
8 Interlaced scan
8 Linear PCM (PCM: Pulse Code Modulation)
A system for converting analog sound signal to digital signal for
later processing, with no data compression used in conversion.
8 Transfer rate
The rate of transferring digital data. Usually the measure is in
baud per second. The DVD system applies a variable transfer
rate system for high efficiency.
8 MP3
A file format with a sound data compression system. “MP3” is
the abbreviation of Motion Picture Experts Group 1 (or MPEG-1)
Audio Layer 3. By using MP3 format, one CD-R/RW can contain
about 10 times as much data volume as a regular CD can.
8 MPEG
A family of Standards for compressing audio-visual information.
“MPEG” standards include MPEG-1, MPEG-2 and MPEG-4.
Video CD/SVCD and MP3 are based on MPEG-1, while DVD is
based on MPEG-2. MPEG stands for Moving Picture coding
Experts Group.
