D3-4-2-1-7b_A_En

CAUTION

The STANDBY/ON switch on this unit will not completely shut off all power from the AC outlet.

Since the power cord serves as the main disconnect device for the unit, you will need to unplug it from the AC outlet to shut down all power. Therefore, make sure the unit has been installed so that the power cord can be easily unplugged from the AC outlet in case of an accident. To avoid fire hazard, the power cord should also be unplugged from the

AC outlet when left unused for a long period of time

(for example, when on vacation).

K041_En

If the AC plug of this unit does not match the AC outlet you want to use, the plug must be removed and appropriate one fitted. Replacement and mounting of an AC plug on the power supply cord of this unit should be performed only by qualified service personnel. If connected to an AC outlet, the cut-off plug can cause severe electrical shock. Make sure it is properly disposed of after removal.

The equipment should be disconnected by removing the mains plug from the wall socket when left unused for a long period of time (for example, when on vacation).

D3-4-2-2-1a_A_En

POWER-CORD CAUTION

Handle the power cord by the plug. Do not pull out the plug by tugging the cord and never touch the power cord when your hands are wet as this could cause a short circuit or electric shock. Do not place the unit, a piece of furniture, etc., on the power cord, or pinch the cord. Never make a knot in the cord or tie it with other cords. The power cords should be routed such that they are not likely to be stepped on. A damaged power cord can cause a fire or give you an electrical shock. Check the power cord once in a while. When you find it damaged, ask your nearest PIONEER authorized service center or your dealer for a replacement.

S002_En

Replacement and mounting of an AC plug on the power supply cord of this unit should be performed only by qualified service personnel.

IMPORTANT: THE MOULDED PLUG

This appliance is supplied with a moulded three pin mains plug for your safety and convenience. A 5 amp fuse is fitted in this plug. Should the fuse need to be replaced, please ensure that the replacement fuse has a rating of 5 amps and that it is approved by ASTA or BSI to BS1362.

Check for the ASTA mark or the BSI mark on the body of the fuse.

If the plug contains a removable fuse cover, you must ensure that it is refitted when the fuse is replaced. If you lose the fuse cover the plug must not be used until a replacement cover is obtained. A replacement fuse cover can be obtained from your local dealer.

If the fitted moulded plug is unsuitable for your socket outlet, then the fuse shall be removed and the plug cut off and disposed of safely. There is a danger of severe electrical shock if the cut off plug is inserted into any 13 amp socket.

If a new plug is to be fitted, please observe the wiring code as shown below. If in any doubt, please consult a qualified electrician.

IMPORTANT: The wires in this mains lead are coloured in accordance with the following code:

Blue : Neutral Brown : Live

As the colours of the wires in the mains lead of this appliance may not correspond with the coloured markings identifying the terminals in your plug, proceed as follows ;

The wire which is coloured BLUE must be connected to the terminal which is marked with the letter N or coloured BLACK.

The wire which is coloured BROWN must be connected to the terminal which is marked with the letter L or coloured RED.

How to replace the fuse: Open the fuse compartment with a screwdriver and replace the fuse.

VOD content

DivX

In order to play DivX VOD (video on demand) content on this recorder, you first need to register the recorder with your DivX VOD content provider. You do this by generating a

DivX VOD registration code, which you submit to your provider.

Some DivX VOD content may only be playable a fixed number of times. When you load a disc containing this type of DivX VOD content, the remaining number of plays is shown on-screen and you then have the option of playing the disc (thereby using up one of the remaining plays), or stopping. If you load a disc that contains expired DivX

VOD content (for example, content that has zero remaining plays), the message Rental

Expired is displayed.

If your DivX VOD content allows an unlimited number of plays, then you may load the disc into your recorder and play the content as often as you like, and no message will be displayed.

• File extensions: .jpg, .jpeg, .jpe, .jif, .jfif

(must be used for the recorder to recognize JPEG files – do not use for other file types)

• File structure: The recorder can load up to 99 folders/999 files at one time (if there are more files/folders that this on the disc then more can be reloaded)

PC-created disc compatibility

Discs recorded using a personal computer may not be playable in this unit due to the setting of the application software used to create the disc. In these particular instances, check with the software publisher for more detailed information.

Discs recorded in packet write mode (UDF format) are not compatible with this recorder.

Check the DVD-R/-RW or CD-R/-RW software disc boxes for additional compatibility information.

Dolby Digital

Important

• DivX VOD content is protected by a DRM system. This restricts playback of content to specific, registered devices.

• If you load a disc that contains DivX VOD content not authorized for this recorder, the message Authorization Error is displayed and the content will not play.

• Resetting the recorder (as described in

Resetting the recorder on page 157) will not cause you to lose your registration code.

About the internal hard disk drive

The internal hard disk drive (HDD) is a fragile piece of equipment. When used without the proper care or in the wrong conditions, it is possible that recorded contents may be damaged or lost entirely, in some cases making even normal playback or recording impossible. Please understand that in the event of repair or replacement of the HDD or related components, all your HDD recordings will be lost.

Please use the recorder following the guidelines below to protect against possible

HDD failure.

The HDD should not be regarded as a place to store recordings permanently. We recommend that you back up your important recordings onto DVD discs in order to protect against accidental loss.

Pioneer cannot under any circumstances accept responsibility for any direct or indirect loss arising from any inconvenience or loss of recorded material resulting from HDD failure.

• Do not move the recorder while it is on

(this includes during EPG download when the display shows EPG ).

• Install and use the recorder on a stable, level surface.

• Do not block the rear vent/cooling fan.

• Do not use the recorder in excessively hot or humid places, or in places that may be subject to sudden changes in temperature. Sudden changes in temperature can cause condensation to form inside the recorder. This can be a cause of HDD failure.

• While the recorder is switched on

(including during EPG download when the display shows EPG ), do not unplug from the wall socket or switch the electricity off from the breaker switch.

• Do not move the recorder immediately after switching it off. If you need to move the recorder, please follow the steps below:

1 After the message POWER OFF is shown on the front panel display, wait at least two minutes.

2 Unplug from the wall socket.

3 Move the recorder.

• If there’s a power failure while the recorder is on there is a chance that some data on the HDD will be lost.

• The HDD is very delicate. If used over time in an improper manner or in an unsuitable environment, it is possible that the HDD will fail. Signs of problems include playback unexpectedly freezing and noticeable block noise (mosaic) in the picture. However, sometimes there will be no warning signs of HDD failure.

If the HDD fails, no playback of recorded material will be possible. In this case it will be necessary to replace the HDD unit.

Optimizing HDD performance

As you record and edit material on the HDD, the data on the disk becomes fragmented, eventually affecting the recorder’s performance. Before this happens, the recorder will warn you that it is time to optimize the HDD (which you can do from the Disc Setup menu; see Optimize HDD on page 122).

Connecting to an AV amplifier/receiver

To enjoy multichannel surround sound you need to connect this recorder to an AV amplifier/receiver using the digital coaxial output.

In addition to a digital connection, we recommend also connecting using the stereo analog connection for compatibility with all discs and sources.

You’ll probably also want to connect a video output to your AV amplifier/receiver. Use the ordinary video output (as shown here), or the

S-video output.

Important

• Noise may be output from your speakers if the recorder is not set up to work with your AV amplifier/receiver properly (see

Audio Out on page 133).

• When watching D.TV only linear PCM audio is output from the coaxial digital out jack.

• Do not connect this recorder to your TV

‘through’ your VCR using A/V cables.

Always connect it directly to your TV.

3 and VIDEO OUTPUT jacks on this recorder to an analog audio and video input on your AV amplifier/receiver.

See Connecting a TV antenna on page 15 for details.

This enables you to watch and record TV channels.

2 Connect the DIGITAL AUDIO OUT

(COAXIAL) jack on this recorder to a coaxial digital input on your AV amplifier/receiver.

This enables you to listen to multichannel surround sound.

Connect the analog AUDIO OUTPUT

Connect the AV amplifier/receiver’s video output to a video input on your TV.

Connecting using HDMI

If you have an HDMI or DVI-equipped

1 monitor or display

Important

• An HDMI connection can only be made with DVI-equipped components compatible with both DVI and Highbandwidth Digital Content Protection

(HDCP). If you choose to connect to a

DVI connector, you will need a DVI to

HDMI adaptor cable. A DVI to HDCP connection, however, does not support audio. Consult your local audio dealer for more information.

• The HDMI connection is compatible with

32 kHz, 44.1 kHz, 48 kHz, 96 kHz, 16 bit/

20 bit/24 bit 2-channel linear PCM signals, as well as Dolby Digital, DTS and

MPEG audio bitstream.

• If your connected component is only compatible with Linear PCM, the signal is output as Linear PCM (DTS audio is not output).

• If you have connected to a Pioneer plasma display, please select the HDMI setup on the display (refer to the supplied manual for more on this).

About HDMI

HDMI (High-Definition Multimedia

Interface) supports both video and audio on a single digital connection for use with DVD players and recorders, DTV, set-top boxes, and other AV devices. HDMI was developed to provide the technologies of Highbandwidth Digital Content Protection

(HDCP) as well as Digital Visual Interface

(DVI) in one specification. HDCP is used to protect digital content transmitted and received by DVI-compliant displays.

HDMI has the capability to support standard, enhanced, or high-definition video plus standard to multi-channel surroundsound audio. HDMI features include uncompressed digital video, a bandwidth of up to five gigabits per second (Dual Link), one connector (instead of several cables and connectors), and communication between the AV source and AV devices such as DTVs.

Setting up the GUIDE Plus+® system

This section is only applicable if you chose to use the GUIDE Plus+ system as the EPG type in step 10 of the Setup Navigator above.

The GUIDE Plus+® system is a free, interactive on-screen television programming guide. The system offers programme listings for all major channels, one-touch recording, search by genre, recommendations according to your profile and more.

For the GUIDE Plus+ system to function correctly, it is important that you set the language and country correctly in the Setup

Navigator, and that you have performed a scan for available channels, as these are all used by the GUIDE Plus+ system. If any of these things are not yet set, please run the

Setup Navigator first (see Switching on and setting up on page 30).

TV listings information is received via ‘host channels’. In order to receive the correct TV listings information for your country or region you need to set up the GUIDE Plus+ system and ‘download’ the TV listings information. The initial download can take up to 24 hours, but once this is done, all future updates are automatic.

ENTER

Enter your postal

The system uses your postal code to identify which TV listings data is correct for the area in which you live, so it is important that you enter it correctly.

• See Connecting to a cable box or satellite receiver on page 17 for more on using the supplied G-LINK cable.

• Select External Receiver 1 , 2 or 3 , then press ENTER . (If you have just one external receiver, use External Receiver

After pressing ENTER :

• Select your reception method

( Terrestrial , Cable or Satellite ).

• Select your provider (if applicable).

• Select the brand of your external receiver.

• Identify which input your external receiver is connected to.

After completing these steps the recorder will try and communicate with your external receiver and change the channel via the G-

LINK cable. If the channel was successfully changed, select Yes to confirm.

If the channel did not change, select No . The

GUIDE Plus+ system will try other codes assigned to your external receiver. If none of the codes changes the channel successfully, tune your external receiver to the host channel for your country (refer to step 5 below) and leave it on overnight. The

• Continue setting up from the start of this step again.

If your external receiver still doesn’t respond to the G-LINK controller, please call customer support and report the brand and model of your external receiver.

See also GUIDE Plus+ FAQ and troubleshooting on page 48.

5 Identify the host channel for your country.

The TV listings information available in the

GUIDE Plus+ system is distributed throughout Europe by selected broadcasters called host channels . It is important that the host (analog) channel for your country is correctly identified in order to receive listings information (EPG download).

Follow A , B or C below depending on your setup:

A If you are not using an external receiver, this recorder will automatically scan all channels for the host channel:

• Leave the recorder in standby overnight

(do not leave it switched on).

B If you are using an external receiver, you need to identify the host channel from the table below:

UK ITV, Eurosport ITV is analog only. Use

Eurosport if you are a

SKY subscriber and you no longer have an analog terrestrial antenna.

• Tune your external receiver to the appropriate host channel and leave the receiver on and the recorder in standby overnight.

C If you use both an external receiver and this recorder as sources, follow the instructions above for setting up without an external receiver. Only if this is unsuccessful try the external receiver method.

About EPG download

• EPG data can only be received when the recorder is in standby. (When not using the recorder, therefore, please switch it into standby.) If you’re using an external receiver, leave this on when EPG data is downloading.

• If you cannot receive any of the host channels (see the above table) then you won’t be able to use the GUIDE Plus+ system. In this case do not set the postal code (or set Country to Other ) in the

GUIDE Plus+ setup screen. (When

GUIDE Plus+ service starts in your area, set the postal code again.)

If digital broadcasts start in your area, please set the EPG Type Select setting in the Initial Setup menu to Digital EPG .

GUIDE

Display the GUIDE Plus+ screen.

• For any channel that you turn ON , the

GUIDE Plus+ system will need to know how it is received (the source) and on which programme number. The source may be the built-in tuner of this recorder, or an external receiver. The programme number is the number on which the channel can be found on its receiving device/source. The entry in the Editor screen must match this number for correct recording of that channel.

• The above is especially important for the

‘host channel’. Please make sure that the host channel is always switched ON .

2 Change the programme numbers as you like.

Changing the programme numbers allows you to decide the order in which the channels change when stepping through them sequentially. You can do this to group certain channels together, for example.

Manual Host Channel setup

The GUIDE Plus+ system will automatically identify your Host Channel as soon as the recorder is put into standby for the first time.

See the table on page 35 for a list of all the

European Host Channels.

If you know your Host Channel details

(source and programme number) or if the automatic identification did not provide the expected result, you can identify your Host

Channel manually. Select Host Channel

Setup in the Setup area and follow the instructions on the TV. Select the correct source (e.g., internal tuner or external receiver) and enter the respective programme number (e.g., if you have to press 9 on the remote to watch your Host

Channel, enter 9 as the programme number). When you next switch the recorder into standby the GUIDE Plus+ system will complete the Host Channel setup.

You can reset the Host Channel settings at any time back to the default setting of automatic. Please be aware that resetting the Host Channel will erase all TV listings data.

GUIDE Plus+ FAQ and troubleshooting

This FAQ covers only a few questions. For a complete list please consult the GUIDE

Plus+ website at: www.europe.guideplus.com

FAQ

• When I tried setting up my external receiver I could not get any of the attempts to work, what should I do?

There could be several reasons why your external receiver could not be controlled.

– The connections could be wrong. Make sure that the G-LINK cable is connected to the G-LINK connector on the recorder and the IR blaster is in front of the external receiver, pointing towards the

IR receiver of your external receiver. See

Connecting to a cable box or satellite receiver on page 17.

– The code that is listed under your brand could be wrong. Please try other codes for your brand under satellite, cable or terrestrial. Go to the Setup Area and choose one of the three options

(cable, satellite or terrestrial) that you have not already tried. Follow the onscreen prompts to make sure that the

GUIDE Plus+ system can change channels on your external receiver. If it does not work, repeat the process, choosing different reception and external receiver combinations until you have tried all the codes for your brand of receiver that are already in the GUIDE

Plus+ system. If it still does not work, see below on how to receive new codes overnight.

– The unit has not yet received new codes. The nightly data downloads frequently include new codes for controlling external receivers. Please tune your external receiver to your local host channel and leave it on overnight.

DVRLX60D_WV_EN.book 49 ページ 2007年3月26日 月曜日 午後12時16分

Using the GUIDE Plus+® electronic programme guide

Switch this recorder into standby. The next morning, please perform the GUIDE

Plus+ setup again to see if your external receiver can now be controlled.

– The external receiver that you use is currently not supported. If, after leaving your external receiver on overnight, and doing the Reception and External

Receiver Setup again, it still does not respond, please call Customer Support to report your brand and model.

• My external receiver was successfully setup. However I have found that when the GUIDE Plus+ system has to change to a channel with a three-digit programme number in the external receiver’s preset, it does not work. It looks like the GUIDE

Plus+ system can only send two digits.

With the number of channels increasing, the number of digits has increased as well. While older boxes use only two digits, newer boxes require up to four. It is possible that you selected an older code for your brand during set-up.

Please access the Setup Area, select

External Receiver and repeat the setup for your brand (Note: Every time you see the on-screen question about whether the receiver has changed to a certain channel, the GUIDE Plus+ system has sent a different code). Try all the different codes until your GUIDE Plus+ system can control your external receiver correctly. If you have no success, try to receive new codes overnight.

• I used to receive data through my terrestrial antenna or analog cable without a set-top box. Now, I have

“upgraded” to a satellite system or to digital cable with external receiver. What should I do to receive data for the GUIDE

Plus+ system?

You can try to receive your host channel through your new reception method. If you have problems to receive data we recommend that you keep your analog terrestrial or cable connection only to receive data this way. It is important that you identify your host channel correctly in the Editor Area.

• After I performed the initial set-up I found that the line-up for all the channels received via the external set top box is incorrect. How do I correct this?

You can change the line-up in the editor according to your preferences. Access the Editor Area. Select the channels that you would like to change. Change the source and preset number according to your preferences.

• I performed the set-up but after many hours I still have a blank EPG what is going wrong?

There are several possibilities:

– Connections are wrong. See

Connections on page 14 to double check everything.

– The initial setup of GUIDE Plus+ was completed incorrectly. Try setting it up again (see Setting up the GUIDE Plus+® system on page 33).

– Your cabling and setup is OK, but the recorder has not been connected for enough time to receive the TV listings data. Leave the recorder in standby overnight.

– For external receiver users only: The connections and setup are OK, but the external receiver was not tuned to the correct host channel. Check the list of host channels (see step 5 of Setting up the GUIDE Plus+® system on page 33) and leave the recorder in standby and the external receiver on overnight tuned to the correct host channel.

– You live in a country/region where the

GUIDE Plus+ system is not yet available.

Check the list of countries to see if you are in a region that is supported.

Using the GUIDE Plus+® electronic programme guide

• I used the One-Button-Record feature (red

Action button) to set a recording, but I recorded the wrong channel.

If the channel to be recorded is received via the external receiver first make sure that the external receiver was left switched on. Next, in the Editor Area, make sure that the channel to be recorded is correctly set: Access the

Editor Area. Check the source and programme number of the channel that you wanted to record. Change the source and preset numbers if incorrect.

If you are recording from the recorder’s internal tuner (the A.TV

or D.TV

setting), make sure that the programme number is the same as the preset number set on this recorder. If they are different, go to the Editor Area and change the programme number to match the recorder’s preset number.

• The TV listings information doesn’t update.

The latest TV listings information is automatically downloaded by the recorder overnight. This only happens if the recorder is in standby; if the recorder is left on, it will not download. When not using the recorder, please switch it into standby.

Data downloads can take several hours.

The front panel display shows EPG when downloading. If you switch the recorder on while EPG is displayed, the download will be cancelled.

• The GUIDE Plus+ system is not supported in my area, but when I switch the recorder into standby, after a while the front panel display shows EPG . Can I stop this from happening?

If the GUIDE Plus+ system is not supported in your area, please do not set the postal code in the GUIDE Plus+ setup (see Setting up the GUIDE Plus+® system on page 33). When the GUIDE

Plus+ service starts in your area, please set the postal code again.

• The automatic Host Channel search failed or the GUIDE Plus+ system identified the wrong Host Channel for my region.

You can identify your Host Channel manually. See Manual Host Channel setup on page 48 for how to do this.

2 • For a DVD timer recording, if Optimized Rec (see Optimized Rec on page 135) is set to On (and VPS/PDC is off), the recorder will adjust the recording quality to try and fit the recording on the disc. If the recording will not fit onto the disc even on MN1 recording quality ( MN4 for DVD+R/+RW) then the Recovery Recording feature will automatically make the recording to the HDD instead.

• If there is very little free space left on the HDD, an Auto Replace Recording may not complete successfully.

• If the HDD is being used for playback or high-speed copying when an Auto Replace Recording is due to start, the new timer recording will not replace the old one. However, the next time the timer recording starts, both of the older two programmes will be erased.

3 This mode maximizes the recording quality to fit on to a single DVD disc. Can also be used when recording to

HDD.

4 • If you set the timer recording to use VPS/PDC, you must switch the recorder into standby before the timer recording is due to start for it to work correctly. For non-VPS/PDC timer recordings there is no need to switch the recorder into standby.

• Optimized Recording will not work if VPS/PDC is on.

• Up to eight timer recordings can be set with VPS/PDC.

• VPS/PDC cannot be set for recordings made from digital broadcasts or an external input, or when the recording mode is set to AUTO .

About DVD recording

This recorder can record to DVD-R, DVD-

RW, DVD+R, DVD+RW, DVD-RAM, DVD-R

DL and DVD+R DL media.

DVD-R and DVD-RW discs can be initialized for Video mode or VR mode recording. Each has its advantages, and it depends on what you want to do with the recording which mode you choose.

If you want to edit your recordings in any significant way, VR mode offers greater possibilities for cutting, copying, and changing the way the video is presented.

Video mode is less flexible when it comes to editing, but it has the advantage that it is compatible with standard DVD players

(many of which won’t play VR mode discs

1

).

Once a disc is initialized for a particular mode, all recording on that disc will be in that mode.

DVD+RW discs can be initialized for +VR mode recording.

DVD-RAM discs can be initialized for VR mode recording.

DVD+R discs do not require initializing.

Important

• The table below shows the maximum number of titles recordable per disc and the maximum number of chapters per title:

• This recorder cannot play or record unfinalized DVD-R/-RW (Video mode) and DVD+R discs recorded on another recorder. DVD+RW discs recorded on another recorder are playable on this recorder but are not recordable.

• The maximum continuous recording time for one title is eight hours when using a DVD+R/+RW disc.

• If you delete a title from a DVD+R/+RW disc, the total number of recordable titles remaining may not increase.

• Although this recorder can record PAL,

SECAM, NTSC and PAL-60, you can’t mix multiple TV line systems on one disc. A disc can contain PAL and SECAM recordings, or NTSC and PAL-60. See also Additional information about the TV system settings on page 141.

• Fingerprints, dirt and small scratches on a disc can affect playback and/or recording performance. Please take proper care of your discs.

• Pioneer takes no responsibility for recording failure due to power cuts, defective discs, or damage to the recorder.

Note

1 Some DVD players, such as some Pioneer models, are compatible with VR mode discs. Check the operating instructions for your player for VR mode compatibility information.

• See also Disc/content format playback compatibility on page 7 for detailed disc compatibility information.

Recording to DVD-R DL/DVD+R DL discs

Recording to DVD-R DL/DVD+R DL discs is generally the same as recording to regular single-layer discs; however, please note the following points:

• When the recorder switches from the first layer to the second during recording a DVD-R DL (Video mode) disc, a new title is automatically started on the new layer.

• Up to 99 titles can be recorded on a

DVD-R DL (Video mode) disc. If the 99th title is being recorded when the layer is switched, recording will stop.

• Up to 49 titles can be recorded on a

DVD+R DL disc.

• You cannot play, record additional material to, edit or finalize a DVD-R DL or

DVD+R DL disc that has been recorded on but not yet finalized on another DVD recorder.

About HDD recording

Recording to the hard disk drive (HDD) is very flexible; you have the full choice of recording quality options, including manual mode, and of course you can record, erase and re-record as many times as you like.

The capacity of the hard disk drive means that you can store many hours of video on it, even using the higher quality recording modes.

Important

• The maximum number of titles/chapters per title that can be recorded on the

HDD is 999 and 99 respectively. No more recording is possible on the HDD after the maximum number of titles has been reached.

• The maximum continuous recording time for one title is 12 hours.

• It is possible to record both PAL and

NTSC titles on the HDD. Before recording, you need to make sure that the Input Line System setting (page 141) matches the TV line system of the source you’re recording.

HDD Video mode compatibility

When recording to the HDD you can choose to record in one of two formats. Set the format from the HDD Recording Format item in the Initial Setup menu (see page 136).

When set to Video Mode On, high-speed copying from HDD to DVD-R/-RW (Video mode) or DVD+R/+RW is possible. When recording a bilingual broadcast, set which channel you want to record from the Initial

Setup menu (see Bilingual Recording on page 132).

When HDD Recording Format is set to Video

Mode Off, high-speed copying from HDD to

DVD-R/-RW (Video mode) or DVD+R/+RW isn’t possible. However, both channels of bilingual broadcasts are recorded and you can switch the audio on playback.

Recorded audio

In all except the LPCM mode, sound is recorded in two channel Dolby Digital format

(only Dolby Digital 2.0 can be recorded; Dolby

Digital 5.1 recording is not possible) . When set to LPCM , sound is recorded in high quality, uncompressed Linear PCM format.

If the broadcast audio is bilingual and you are recording to DVD-R/-RW (Video mode),

DVD+R/+RW, or to the HDD with the HDD

Recording Format set to Video Mode On, or on the LPCM setting, use the Bilingual

Recording setting (page 132) to select the

A/L or B/R audio channel to record before recording starts. In other cases, both channels of a bilingual broadcast will be recorded and you can switch on playback.

CPRM

CPRM is a copy protection/scrambling system developed for the recording of ‘copy once’ broadcast programmes. CPRM stands for Content Protection for Recordable Media .

This recorder is CPRM compatible, which means that you can record copy-once broadcast programmes, but you cannot then make a copy of those recordings. CPRM recordings can only be made on CPRMcompatible DVD-R (ver. 2.0/8x or higher) or

DVD-RW (ver. 1.1 or higher) discs formatted in VR mode, DVD-RAM discs or on the HDD.

DVD CPRM recordings can only be played on players that are specifically compatible with CPRM.

About timer recordings

DVD (VR) DVD (Video) DVD+R DVD+RW DVD-RAM HDD

Using the timer recording features you can program up to 32 timer recordings up to a month in advance. Timer recording programmes can be set to record just once, every day, or every week.

You can set the recording quality for your timer recording in the same way as for a regular recording, but with the added option of an AUTO mode, which maximizes the recording quality for the space available on the disc (if recording to DVD), or to fit on to a blank DVD disc (if recording to the HDD).

You can set timer recordings to record to a recordable DVD or to the hard disk drive. For regular (daily or weekly) HDD timer recordings that you don’t need to keep, you can use the Auto Replace Recording feature to automatically replace the previous timer recording with the new one. Note that when you use this feature, the previous recording made on that timer programme will be replaced by the next one, regardless of whether you have watched it yet or not.

You can also set the recorder so that it will adjust the recording quality to try and fit the recording on to the disc if it would not otherwise fit at the recording quality you set

(see Optimized Rec on page 135 for more on this).

Finally, if you set a timer recording to record to DVD but there isn’t a recordable DVD loaded at the time of the recording, the

Recovery Recording feature will automatically record the programme to the

HDD for you.

This recorder is compatible with VPS (Video

Programming System) and PDC

(Programme Delivery Control) systems used by many analog TV stations to ensure that a timer recording catches the whole programme even when the programme is not running to schedule. Up to eight timer programmes can be set with VPS/PDC on.

68

En

Important

• A timer recording can’t be set if there are already 32 timer programmes waiting to be recorded.

• Timer recording will not start if:

– The recorder is already recording.

– A disc is being initialized, finalized or unfinalized.

• Timer recording will start when the operation preventing timer recording has finished.

• When the front panel display is set to

ON, the timer indicator ( ) lights in the front panel display when the timer is active. If the indicator is blinking it means that (for a DVD timer recording) there is no disc loaded, or the disc loaded is not recordable (for an HDD timer recording it means that the HDD is not recordable).

• Approximately two minutes before a timer recording is set to start, the recorder will go into timer recording standby. In timer recording standby you cannot use some functions.

• The maximum length for timer recordings made to the HDD is 24 hours.

However, because one title (HDD) is limited to 12 hours, recordings over 12 hours will be spread over two titles. Note that there will be a break in the recording of a few seconds between titles.

• VPS/PDC works only with analog stations; it does not work with digital TV stations.

• VPS/PDC may not work with all broadcast stations in your country/area.

Check with the stations for compatibility.

• The hours between 3:00 and 5:00 in the morning are used by the GUIDE Plus+ system to download programme information. During these times, VPS/

PDC may not work reliably; leave VPS/

PDC off if you set a timer recording for these times.

DVRLX60D_WV_EN.book 69 ページ 2007年3月26日 月曜日 午後12時16分

Recording

• If VPS/PDC is active for two timer programmes that are programmed to start at the same time, then the programme that actually starts first takes priority.

Extending a timer recording in progress

You can extend a timer recording beyond the programmed end time. This can be useful if a broadcast programme overruns, for example.

Cancelling or extending the timer

REC

1 Press and hold for three seconds during a timer recording.

Recording continues, but the timer indicator disappears from the front panel display indicating that the timer has been cancelled.

REC

2 Press repeatedly to extend recording in 30 minute blocks.

Stopping a timer recording

STOP REC

Press during a timer recording.

ENTER

2 Select ‘Yes’ to confirm.

Preventing use of the recorder before a timer recording (child lock)

You can make all the front panel and remote control buttons inoperative using the child lock feature. This is useful when you set a timer recording and want to make sure that the timer settings are not changed before recording has finished.

STANDBY/ON

1 If the recorder is on, switch it into standby.

2 [Front panel] Press and hold for three seconds to lock the controls.

The front panel display briefly shows

LOCKED . If any buttons are pressed on the remote or front panel, LOCKED is briefly displayed again.

• To unlock the recorder, press and hold

(Stop) on the front panel (while the recorder is stopped) for three seconds until the display shows UNLOCKED .

Timer recording FAQ

Frequently Asked Questions

• Even though the timer is set, the recorder doesn’t start recording!

Check that the disc loaded or HDD is recordable, not locked (see Lock Disc on page 121), and that there are fewer than

99/999 titles already on the DVD/HDD.

• The recorder won’t let me enter a timer programme! Why not?

You can’t enter a timer programme if the clock isn’t set.

• What happens when two or more timer programmes overlap?

Basically, the programme with the earlier recording start time has priority.

However, the recorder will start recording the programme with the later start time after the earlier programme is finished. If schedule to record two programmes have the same times (but different channels, for example), then only one of the two programmes will be recorded. In this event you should cancel the scheduled recording of the lesser important programme. If one of the overlapping programmes is a regular timer programme for a digital broadcast, you may choose ‘Cancel Once’ in order to avoid having it overlap with a separately scheduled programme (see

Skipping a regular timer programme on page 56) .

(including many Pioneer models) can also play DVD-RW discs recorded in VR mode, finalized or not. Most players will not play VR mode DVD-R discs, although some DVD-

ROM drives and DVD recorders may be able to (finalization might be necessary). Check the manual that came with the player to check what kinds of discs it will play.

When you finalize a DVD-R/-RW (Video mode) or DVD+R disc, a title menu is created from which you can select titles when you play the disc. There are a number of different styles of title menu to choose from to suit the content of the disc.

All the title menus are navigated in the usual way, pressing MENU or TOP MENU to display the menu, then using the

///

followed by ENTER to select titles and start playback.

Finalizing a disc

DVD (VR) DVD (Video) DVD+R DVD+RW

Finalizing ‘fixes’ the recordings on the disc so that it can be played on a regular DVD player or computer equipped with a suitable

DVD-ROM drive.

1

Note that the disc name will appear in the title menu after you finalize a disc. Make sure the disc name is as you want it before you finalize the disc as it can’t be changed afterwards. If you want to rename the disc, see Input Disc Name on page 121 before starting the steps below.

DVD+RW discs don’t generally need finalizing. However, if you want a title menu to appear when you play the disc, then you will need to finalize. When using a

DVD+RW, you can still record and edit even after finalizing. although the title menu will disappear if you do so. Finalize the disc again to generate a new title menu.

Important

• Once you’ve finalized a DVD-R/-RW

(Video mode) or DVD+R disc, you can’t edit or record anything else on that disc.

However, the finalization on a DVD-RW disc maybe ‘undone’; see Undo Finalize on page 122 for how to do this.

• A VR mode DVD-R/-RW (excluding DVD-

R DL) disc can still be recorded and edited on this recorder even after finalizing.

• DVD-R DL (Video mode) discs and

DVD+R DL discs must be finalized in order to play in other recorders/players.

Note however that some recorders/ players will not play even finalized duallayer discs.

07

Note

1 If the TV line system of the disc is different to the current setting of the recorder, you will not be able to finalize the disc. See Additional information about the TV system settings on page 141 for how to change the recorder’s setting.

During finalization:

• If the finalization process of a DVD-RW or DVD+R/+RW disc is going to take more than around four minutes, you can press ENTER to cancel. Around four minutes before completion, the option to cancel disappears.

• You can’t cancel the finalization of a VR mode DVD-R disc.

• How long finalization takes depends on the type of disc, how much is recorded on the disc and the number of titles on the disc. A disc recorded in VR mode can take up to one hour to finalize. DVD-R/

-RW (Video mode) and DVD+R/+RW discs can take up to 20 minutes.

• Discs recorded partially or fully on the

Pioneer DVR-7000 DVD recorder do not support this feature. These discs will have only a text title menu when finalized on this recorder.

Initializing recordable DVD discs

DVD-R DVD-RW DVD+RW DVD-RAM

DVD-R/-RW discs can be initialized for either

Video mode recording or VR mode recording.

1

When you first load a blank DVD-RW or

DVD+RW disc, the recorder initializes it for recording automatically. By default, blank

DVD-RW discs are initialized for VR mode recording. See DVD-RW Auto Initialize on page 73 if you want to change the default to

Video mode.

DVD-R discs are ready for Video mode recordings out of the box; if you want to use a DVD-R for VR mode recording, you must initialize it before recording anything on the disc.

DVD+RW and DVD-RAM discs can also be initialized in order to erase the contents of the disc.

Note

1 If a disc was previously finalized on an older DVD recorder, you may not be able to re-initialize and/or initialize it for Video mode recording.

Playing and recording from a

DV camcorder

You can play back and record video from a

DV camcorder connected to the DV IN jack on the front panel of this recorder.

Important

• If you connect a second recorder using a

DV cable, you cannot control the second unit from this one.

• You can’t control this unit remotely from a component connected to the DV IN jack.

• The recorder will only start recording from the DV IN jack if there is a valid signal. Recording will pause if the signal is interrupted during recording.

• If your source is copy-protected using

Copy Guard, you will not be able to record it. See Restrictions on video recording on page 61 for more details.

Playing from a DV camcorder

1 Make sure your DV camcorder is connected to the front panel DV IN jack.

2 From the Initial Setup menu, check that the DV audio input is setup as you would like.

See DV Input on page 133 for more on this.

• Check also that the Audio In settings for

External Audio and Bilingual

Recording are as you want them (see

Audio In on page 132).

3 HOME MENU Select ‘DV’, then ‘DV Video

Playback’ from the Home Menu.

4 Start playback on the camcorder.

Images from the camcorder should appear on your TV.

• To record the incoming video, press

If there is no signal from the device connected to the DV jack, or the signal is copy-protected, recording will pause. It will automatically restart once there is a recordable signal.

Recording from a DV camcorder

• The source signal must be DVC-SD format.

• You can’t record date and time information from DV cassette.

• During DV recording, if a part of the tape is blank, or has copy-protected material on it, this recorder will pause recording.

Recording will restart automatically when there is a recordable signal.

However, if there is more than two minutes of blank tape, this recorder will stop recording and the camcorder should stop (depending on the camcorder).

Copying from a DV source

Using the recorder’s remote, you can control both the camcorder and this recorder.

Important

• Some camcorders cannot be controlled using this recorder’s remote.

• For best results when recording from a

DV camcorder to this recorder, we recommend cueing the camcorder to the place you want to start recording from and setting the camcorder to play-pause.

About DV

Using DV, also known as i.LINK or IEEE 1394-

1995, you can connect a DV camcorder to this recorder using a DV cable for input of audio, video, data and control signals.

“i.LINK” and the “i.LINK” logo are trademarks.

• This recorder is only compatible with DVformat (DVC-SD) camcorders. Digital satellite receivers and Digital VHS video recorders are not compatible.

• You cannot connect more than one DV camcorder at a time to this recorder.

• You cannot control this recorder from external equipment connected via the

DV IN jack.

• It may not always be possible to control the connected camcorder via the DV IN jack.

• DV camcorders can usually record audio as stereo 16-bit/48 kHz, or twin stereo tracks of 12-bit/32 kHz. This recorder can only record one stereo audio track. Set the DV Input setting as required (see DV

Input on page 133).

• Audio input to the DV IN jack should be

32 kHz or 48 kHz (not 44.1 kHz).

• Picture disturbance in the recording may occur if the source component pauses playback or plays an unrecorded section of tape, or if the power fails in the source component, or the DV cable is disconnected.

• The DV IN jack is an input only. There is no output functionality.

09

Note

1 If the audio subcode on the DV tape cannot be read correctly, the audio type will not switch automatically. You can switch the audio manually from the External Audio setting (page 132).

Frequently asked questions

• Why doesn’t the available recording time increase when I erase titles from a VR mode DVD-R?

When you erase titles from a DVD-R (or

DVD+R), the titles are no longer displayed, but the content remains on the disc. DVD-R/+R are write-once media; they can’t be erased or rewritten.

• I can’t edit my disc!

You may find that as the available recording time is reduced on a VR mode

DVD-R disc, editing is no longer possible. This is because information about your edits requires a certain amount of disc space. As you edit, this information builds up, eventually preventing you from editing further.

Chapter 11

Copying and backup

Introduction

Use the copying features of this recorder to:

• Back up important recordings stored on the HDD to a DVD.

• Make a DVD copy of a recording on the

HDD to play in another player.

• Transfer video from a DVD to the HDD for editing.

• Transfer edited video from the HDD to

DVD.

The simplest way to copy a title is to use the

One Touch Copy feature. This copies the currently playing HDD title to DVD, or DVD title to the HDD. See One Touch Copy below for detailed instructions.

For more sophisticated copying tasks you can build a Copy List of titles to copy, and edit titles so that you only copy the bits you want. See Using Copy Lists on page 102 for detailed instructions.

Where possible, the recorder will copy your recordings at high-speed. Depending on the recording mode, the kind of disc loaded and various other factors, copying can be as fast as one minute per hour of video. See

Minimum copying times on page 144 for more on copying times.

If you want to save disc space you can copy video at a lower recording quality (for example, an XP recording on the HDD copied to SP on a DVD). Copying in this way is always done in real-time.

When real-time copying from the HDD to a

DVD-R/-RW (Video mode) or DVD+R/+RW, the chapter markers in the original material are not copied. Chapter markers are put into the copy at intervals, according to the Auto

Chapter settings (see also Auto Chapter

(Video) and Auto Chapter (DVD+R/+RW) on page 136).

Restrictions on copying

Commercial DVD-Video discs are protected using Copy Guard. These discs cannot be copied to the HDD.

Some video material is copy-once protected.

This means that it can be recorded to HDD, but it can’t then be freely copied again. If you want to transfer copy-once protected material from HDD to DVD, you’ll need to a

CPRM ver. 1.1 or higher VR mode DVD-RW, ver. 2.0 or 2.1 VR mode DVD-R, or CPRMcompatible DVD-RAM disc (see CPRM on page 61 for more on this). Only one instance of a copy-once protected title can be added to the Copy List, and after it’s been copied, the title is erased from the HDD (it is therefore not possible to copy a locked title that is copy-once protected).

You can identify copy-once protected material during playback by displaying disc information on-screen. If the current title is copy-once protected, an exclamation mark

( !

) is shown.

Copyright

Recording equipment should be used only for lawful copying and you are advised to check carefully what is lawful copying in the country in which you are making a copy.

Copying of copyright material such as films or music is unlawful unless permitted by a legal exception or consented to by the rightowners.

One Touch Copy

* See also Copyright above.

The One Touch Copy feature copies the currently playing or selected (in the Disc

Navigator) HDD title to DVD, or DVD title to

HDD. The whole title is copied, regardless of where in the title you start the copy.

• You can’t use the One Touch Copy function to copy a title if any part of the title is copy-once protected.

• A title that contains mixed aspect ratios can’t be copied to a DVD-R/-RW (Video mode) or DVD+R/+RW. Use a DVD-R/

Using Copy Lists

* See also Copyright on page 100.

At its simplest, a Copy List is just a list of

HDD or DVD titles that you want to copy.

When copying HDD titles to DVD, you can, however, edit the titles in your copy list, erasing chapters you don’t need, or renaming titles, for example. Edits you make to titles in the Copy List do not affect the actual video content; only the ‘virtual’ content of the

Copy List. So you can freely erase and modify anything in your Copy List safe in the knowledge that the actual content is not being altered.

Additional information about the

TV system settings

About the input line system

This recorder is compatible with PAL,

SECAM, 3.58 NTSC and PAL-60 TV systems.

The Input Line System and Input Colour

System settings determine how the recorder treats incoming video signals from an external input.

Please note the following points when changing the input line system:

• When the current input is a built-in tuner channel preset, changing the input line system will usually also affect the input line system of the AV2 (INPUT 1/

DECODER) input. However if the AV2/L1

In setting is set to Decoder , then the L2 input is affected instead.

• If, when the Input Line System setting is changed, the screen goes blank (due to incompatibility with your TV), you can switch back by pressing and holding the front panel (Stop) button then pressing INPUT SELECT (also front panel) while the recorder is stopped.

• When you switch the Input Line System setting the Copy List is erased. If you switch the setting using the (Stop) button and INPUT SELECT buttons as described above, there is no confirmation, so please use with care.

• You can’t mix recordings of different TV line systems on the same disc.

• When you change this setting, the Input

Colour System setting also changes

(see below).

About NTSC on PAL TV

Depending on the Input Line System setting and the NTSC on PAL TV setting, the signal format output when the recorder is stopped varies as shown in the table below.

Using Software Update

(Digital tuner)

The Software Update function can keep the built-in digital tuner up to date with the latest system software. You can either check for updates manually, or have the recorder do it automatically at regular intervals.

Access the Software Update screen from the

Options menu.

There are three options available: Manual

Update, Auto Update and Technical

Information.

Manual Update

Select Manual Update to check for updated software immediately. If new software is found then it is automatically downloaded and installed. The new software will take effect the next time the recorder is powered on.

If for some reason the new software could not be downloaded successfully, a dialog box informs you of the error. Press HOME

MENU to exit or RETURN/EXIT to return to the previous screen.

Note that channel information may be erased when software update is used, and that timer recording will not work during the update.

To cancel manual update before it has completed, press HOME MENU .

Auto Update

By default, the Auto Update option is On , which means that periodically the recorder will check for and update the digital tuner software if it’s available. We recommend that you leave this option On .

If new software is found and successfully downloaded, the recorder automatically scans for new digital channels, informing you if any are found (this is the equivalent of using the Add New Channel option, found in the Digital Tuner section of the Initial Setup menu).

Technical Information

This displays the current hardware and software version numbers of the digital tuner.

Problem

Can’t play a disc recorded using this recorder on another player

Remedy

• If the disc was recorded in DVD-R/-RW (Video mode) or DVD+R, make sure that it’s finalized (page 71).

• Some players will not play recordable DVD discs, even when recorded in DVD-R/-RW (Video mode) or DVD+R and finalized.

• If the disc was recorded in VR mode, the other player must be specifically RW compatible in order to play it (page 7).

• Discs recorded with copy-once material cannot be played on non-

CPRM compatible players (page 61).

• DVD+RW discs containing only a small amount of recorded material may not play on other players. Finalize the disc and try again.

During playback the picture is dark or distorted

• When a copy-protected disc is played via a VCR, the picture will not display correctly. Connect the recorder directly to your TV.

Recorded contents are not clear or artefacts appear in areas of flat colour (due to MPEG compression; also known as block noise )

• Change the recording mode to XP / SP .

Can’t record or does not record successfully

• Check that there is some remaining blank space on the DVD/HDD.

• For a DVD-R/-RW (Video mode) or DVD+R, check that the disc isn’t already finalized.

• Check the limits on the number of titles and chapters on a disc:

– HDD: 999 titles

– VR mode: 99 titles, 999 chapters per disc

– Video mode disc: 99 titles per disc, 99 chapters per title

– DVD+R/+RW: 49 titles per disc, 99 chapters per title (max 254 chapters per disc)

• Check that the source you are trying to record is not copy protected.

• For a VR formatted disc, check that the disc isn’t locked (page 121).

• Check that you are recording with the same TV system (PAL, NTSC, etc.) as the disc has already been recorded in. All recordings on a disc must be in the same TV system. When recording to the HDD, it is also necessary to set the Input Line System setting to match what you want to record (page 141).

• The power may have failed during recording.

Timer programme doesn’t record successfully

• When setting the recording channel, make sure you set the recorder’s built-in TV tuner, not the TV’s built-in tuner.

• When recording to a DVD-R/-RW (Video mode) or DVD+R/+RW, programmes that are copy-once protected cannot be recorded. Use a

VR mode formatted disc for copy-once material (page 61).

• Two timer programmes may have overlapped, in which case only the earlier one will record completely.

• The power may have failed during recording.

Problem Remedy

The connected HDMI or

DVI device does not display any picture

(and the front panel

HDMI indicator does not light)

• Try disconnecting then reconnecting the HDMI cable (while the power of both components is on).

• Try switching the power of the HDMI/DVI device off then back on.

• Try switching off the HDMI/DVI device and this recorder. Next, switch on the HDMI/DVI device and leave it for around 30 seconds, then switch on this recorder.

• When you connect an HDMI-compatible device make sure of the following:

– The connected device’s video input is set correctly for this unit.

– The cable you’re using is fully HDMI-compliant. Using a nonstandard cable may result in no picture being output.

– Don’t use several HDMI cables connected together. Use a single cable to connect devices together.

• When you connect a DVI-compatible device make sure of the following:

– The connected device’s video input is set correctly for this unit.

– The DVI terminal on the connected device is HDCP-compatible.

– The connected device is compatible with NTSC (720 x 480i/p,

1280 x 720p, 1920 x 1080i/p) and PAL (720 x 576i/p, 1280 x 720p, 1920 x

1080i/p) video input.

• If the recorder’s internal HDD is damaged or broken, there will be no

HDMI output.

• Not all HDCP-compatible DVI devices will work with this recorder.

No video from the

HDMI output

• If you choose a setting that is incompatible with your TV you may not be able to see any picture at all. In this case, press while holding down the

OPEN/CLOSE

(Stop) button on the front panel to switch the setting (this also switches Component Video Out on page 131 to the default setting).

There’s no sound from the connected HDMI or

DVI device

• There is no sound when using a DVI terminal.

• Some HDMI-compatible devices do not output sound (check with the manual that came with the connected device).

If the unit does not operate normally due to external effects such as static electricity, disconnect the power plug from the outlet and insert again to return to normal operating conditions.

Handling discs

When holding discs of any type, take care not to leave fingerprints, dirt or scratches on the disc surface. Hold the disc by its edge or by the center hole and edge.

Damaged or dirty discs can affect playback and recording performance. Take care also not to scratch the label side of the disc.

Although not as fragile as the recorded side, scratches can still result in a disc becoming unusable.

Should a disc become marked with fingerprints, dust, etc., clean using a soft, dry cloth, wiping the disc lightly from the center to the outside edge. Do not wipe with a circular motion.

For more detailed care information see the instructions that come with discs.

Do not load more than one disc into the recorder.

Damaged discs

Discs spin at high speed inside the recorder.

If you can see that a disc is cracked, chipped, warped, or otherwise damaged, don’t risk using it; you could end up damaging the recorder.

This recorder is designed for use with conventional, fully circular discs only. Use of shaped discs is not recommended for this product. Pioneer disclaims all liability arising in connection with the use of shaped discs.

156

En

If necessary, use a cloth soaked in alcohol, or a commercially available CD/DVD cleaning kit to clean a disc more thoroughly.

Never use benzine, thinner or other cleaning agents, including products designed for cleaning vinyl records.

Storing discs

Although CDs and DVD discs are more durable than vinyl records, you should still take care to handle and store discs correctly.

When you’re not using a disc, return it to its case and store upright. Avoid leaving discs in excessively cold, humid, or hot environments (including under direct sunlight).

Don’t glue paper or put stickers onto the disc, or use a pencil, ball-point pen or other sharp-tipped writing instrument. These could all damage the disc.

Cleaning the pickup lens

The HDD/DVD recorder’s lens should not become dirty in normal use, but if for some reason it should malfunction due to dust or dirt, consult your nearest Pioneer-authorized service center. Although lens cleaners are commercially available, we do not recommend using them since some may damage the lens.

Condensation

Condensation may form inside the recorder if it is brought into a warm room from outside, or if the temperature of the room rises quickly. Although the condensation won’t damage the recorder, it may temporarily impair its performance. For this reason you should leave it to adjust to the warmer temperature for about an hour before switching on and using.

Hints on installation

We want you to enjoy using this unit for years to come, so please bear in mind the following points when choosing a suitable location for it:

Do...

Use in a well-ventilated room.

Place on a solid, flat, level surface, such as a table, shelf or stereo rack.

Don’t...

Use in a place exposed to high temperatures or humidity, including near radiators and other heat-generating appliances.

Place on a window sill or other place where the recorder will be exposed to direct sunlight.

Use in a dusty or damp environment or in a room where it will be exposed to excessive cigarette smoke.

Place directly on top of an amplifier, or other component in your stereo system that becomes hot in use.

Use near a television or monitor as you may experience interference — especially if the television uses an indoor antenna.

Use in a kitchen or other room where the recorder may be exposed to smoke or steam.

Use on a thick rug or carpet, or cover with cloth — this may prevent proper cooling of the unit.

Place on an unstable surface, or one that is not large enough to support all four of the unit’s feet.

Moving the recorder

If you need to move the recorder, first remove the disc, if loaded, and close the disc tray. Next, press STANDBY/ON to switch the power to standby, checking that the

POWER OFF indication in the display goes off. Wait at least two minutes. Lastly, disconnect the power cord. Never lift or move the unit during playback or recording

— discs rotate at a high speed and may be damaged.

Resetting the recorder

If you need to, you can reset the recorder to all its factory settings.

1 Make sure that the recorder is on.

2 Using the front panel controls, press and hold (Stop) and press STANDBY/

ON.

The recorder turns off with all settings reset.
