Note

This equipment has been tested and found to comply with the limits for a

Precautions

On safety

Should any solid object or liquid fall into the cabinet, unplug the recorder and have it checked by qualified personnel before operating it any further.

On power sources

• Operate the recorder only on

120 V AC, 60 Hz.

• The recorder is not disconnected from the AC power source as long as it is connected to the wall outlet, even if the recorder itself has been turned off.

• Install this system so that the power cord can be unplugged from the wall socket immediately in the event of trouble.

• If you are not going to use the recorder for a long time, be sure to disconnect the recorder from the wall outlet. To disconnect the AC power cord, grasp the plug itself; never pull the cord.

On placement

• Place the recorder in a location with adequate ventilation to prevent heat build-up in the recorder.

• If the recorder is brought directly from a cold to a warm location, or is placed in a very damp room, moisture may condense on the lenses inside the recorder. Should this occur, the recorder may not operate properly. In this case, remove the disc and leave the recorder turned on for about half an hour before operating the recorder.

• Do not place the recorder on a soft surface such as a rug that might block the ventilation holes.

• Do not place the recorder in a confined space such as a bookshelf or similar unit.

• Do not place the recorder in a location near heat sources, or in a place subject to direct sunlight, excessive dust, or mechanical shock.

• Do not place the recorder in an inclined position. It is designed to be operated in a horizontal position only.

• Keep the recorder and discs away from equipment with strong magnets, such as microwave ovens, or large loudspeakers.

• Do not place heavy objects on the recorder.

• To prevent fire or shock hazard, do not place objects filled with liquids, such as vases, on the apparatus.

• When you move the recorder, take out any discs. If you do not, the disc may be damaged.

On recording

• Contents of the recording cannot be compensated for if the recording or playback is not made due to a malfunction of the recorder, disc, etc.

• Make trial recordings before making the actual recording.

Copyrights

• Television programs, films, video tapes, discs, and other materials may be copyrighted. Unauthorized recording of such material may be contrary to the provisions of the copyright laws. Also, use of this recorder with cable television transmission may require authorization from the cable television transmitter and/or program owner.

• This product incorporates copyright protection technology that is protected by U.S. patents and other intellectual property rights. Use of this copyright protection technology must be authorized by Macrovision, and is intended for home and other limited viewing uses only unless otherwise authorized by

Macrovision. Reverse engineering or disassembly is prohibited.

Copy guard function

Since the recorder has a copy guard function, programs received through an external tuner (not supplied) may contain copy protection signals

(copy guard function) and as such may not be recordable, depending on the type of signal.

IMPORTANT NOTICE

Caution: This recorder is capable of holding a still video image or on-screen display image on your television screen indefinitely. If you leave the still video image or on-screen display image displayed on your TV for an extended period of time you risk permanent damage to your television screen.

Plasma display panels and projection televisions are especially susceptible to this.

If you have any questions or problems concerning your recorder, please consult your nearest Sony dealer.

Hookups and Settings

Hooking Up the Recorder

Follow steps 1 to 7 to hook up and adjust the settings of the recorder.

Notes

• Plug cords securely to prevent unwanted noise.

• See the instructions supplied with the components to be connected.

• You cannot connect this recorder to a TV that does not have a video input jack.

• Be sure to disconnect the power cord of each component before connecting. Do not connect the

power cord until you reach “Connecting the Power

Cord” on page 20.

Step 1: Unpacking

Check that you have the following items:

• Audio/video cord

(phono plug

× 3 y phono plug × 3) (1)

• Remote commander (remote) (1)

• Set top box controller (1)

• Size AA (R6) batteries (2)

Step 2: Connecting the

Cable Box/Satellite

Receiver (Tuner)

This recorder does not include a TV tuner.

To record TV programs on this recorder, you need to connect the recorder to a tuner that has audio/ video output jacks.

If you have been using your VCR connected to an antenna, connect this recorder to your VCR using an audio/video cord. In this way, you will be able to record TV programs.

You cannot record on this recorder if you have:

– a cable box or satellite receiver without audio/ video outputs.

– cable with no cable box.

– antenna only (no cable TV).

In the cases above, contact your cable service or satellite service company to see if they can provide you with a compatible cable box or satellite receiver.

Using the cable box/satellite receiver control function

This function allows the recorder to control a cable box or satellite receiver via the supplied set top box controller. You can also use the recorder’s remote control to change channels on the cable box/satellite receiver whenever the cable box/ satellite receiver and the recorder are turned on.

To use the cable box/satellite receiver control function, you need to:

– Check the brand code of your cable box/satellite

receiver. See “Cable Box/Satellite Receiver

Brand Code” (page 101).

– Connect the set top box controller (page 13).

– Set the brand code number and the recorder’s input that is connected to the cable box/satellite

receiver (page 23).

After setting up the cable box/satellite receiver control, check that the recorder can correctly control the cable box or satellite receiver

(page 25).

Connecting a cable box/satellite receiver and set top box controller

Connect the LINE 1 IN jacks using an audio/video cord.

With this hookup, you can record any channel on the cable box or satellite receiver. Be sure that the cable box or satellite receiver is turned on. You need to connect to the LINE 1 IN (VIDEO/AUDIO) jacks for

the Synchro-Rec function (page 54).

To record cable or satellite programs, you need to match the input source on the recorder (LINE1) to the input jack connected to the cable box or satellite receiver (LINE 1 IN).

Place the set top box controller near the remote sensor on the cable box/satellite receiver.

Notes on playing DTS soundtracks on a CD

When playing DTS-encoded CDs, excessive noise will be heard from the analog stereo jacks. To avoid possible damage to the audio system, the consumer should take proper precautions when the analog stereo jacks of the recorder are connected to an amplification system. To enjoy

DTS Digital Surround™ playback, an external

5.1-channel decoder system must be connected to the digital jack of the recorder.

Notes

• If you pause playback of a CD, or DATA CD/DATA

OUT jack.

When you play a DVD with DTS soundtracks, set

“Digital Out” – “DTS” to “On” of “Audio” in the

“Setup” display (page 82).

If you connect the recorder to audio equipment without a DTS decoder, do not set “DTS” to “On” in “Audio” setup. A loud noise (or no sound) may come out from the speakers, which might disturb your ears or cause damage to the speakers.

About MP3 audio tracks and JPEG image files

MP3 is audio compression technology that satisfies the ISO/IEC MPEG regulations.

JPEG is image compression technology.

You can play back DATA CDs (CD-ROMs/CD-

Rs/CD-RWs) or DATA DVDs (DVD-ROMs/

DVD+RWs/DVD-RWs/DVD+Rs/DVD-Rs) recorded in MP3 (MPEG1 Audio Layer 3) and

JPEG format.

However, this recorder only plays DATA CDs whose logical format is ISO9660 Level 1/Level 2 or Joliet, and DATA DVDs of Universal Disk

Format (UDF).

See the instructions supplied with the disc drives and the recording software (not supplied) for details on the recording format.

z

Hint

The recorder can play MP3 audio tracks or JPEG image files stored in a USB device connected to the USB jack

(page 45).

Note

The recorder may not be able to play some DATA CDs or DATA DVDs created in the Packet Write format.

MP3 audio tracks or JPEG image files that the recorder can play

The recorder can play the following tracks and files:

– MP3 (MPEG1 Audio Layer 3) audio tracks.

– MP3 audio tracks with the extension “.MP3.”

– JPEG image files with the extension “.JPEG” or

“.JPG.” z

Hints

• If you add numbers (01, 02, 03, etc.) to the front of the file names, the files will be played in that order.

• Since a disc with many trees takes longer to start playback, it is recommended that you create albums with no more than two trees.

Notes

• Some DATA CDs or DATA DVDs cannot be played on this recorder depending on file format.

• Only one session of a multi-session DATA DVD can be played back.

• Only alphabet and numbers can be used for album or track names. Anything else is displayed as an asterisk.

• The recorder will play any data with the extension

“.MP3,” even if they are not in MP3 format. Playing such data may generate a loud noise which could damage your speaker system.

• The recorder does not conform to audio tracks in

MP3PRO format.

• The recorder can recognize up to 499 MP3 audio tracks within a single album. The recorder may not recognize some discs depending on the recording device used for recording or the disc condition.

• The recorder can play MP3 audio tracks recorded in the following sampling frequencies: 32 kHz, 44.1 kHz,

48 kHz.

• ID3 tags cannot be displayed.

• If you add the extension “.JPG” or “.JPEG” to data not in JPEG format, a message appears indicating that the format is not supported.

• Depending on the disc or the size or total number of files, playback may take some time to start.

• The recorder can recognize up to 999 JPEG image files within a single folder. The recorder may not recognize some discs depending on the recording device used for recording or the disc condition.

• Progressive and lossless compression JPEG image files are not supported.

• The image size that the recorder can display is limited to width 32 - 7680 pixels by height 32 - 8192 pixels.

• JPEG image files that conform to the DCF* image file format are not supported.

Recording

Before Recording

Before you start recording…

• This recorder can record on various disc types.

Select the disc type according to your needs

(page 30).

• Check that the disc has enough available space

for the recording (page 40). For DVD+RWs or

DVD-RWs, you can free up disc space by

erasing titles (page 58).

• Check that the recorder is connected to a tuner such as a cable box or satellite receiver

(page 12). See also the tuner’s instruction

manual.

z

Hints

• To play a disc recorded with this recorder on other

equipment, finalize the disc (page 66). Note that you

cannot further record or edit on a finalized disc.

• If you set “Auto Finalize” to “On” in the “Features”

setup (page 85), the Auto Finalize function works for

DVD-RWs (Video mode), DVD-Rs (Video mode) and

DVD+Rs after recording. For details, see page 67.

ESP: 5 hours 25 minutes

LP: 7 hours 14 minutes

EP: 10 hours 51 minutes

SLP: 14 hours 28 minutes

Notes

• When in a recording mode other than HQ, the recorder compresses the audio/video data before recording.

Since the compression rate needs to decrease for fastmoving images or if picture noise is present, recorded data size increases, and available recording time becomes shorter. When recording such pictures, a recording mode offering longer recording time is recommended.

• Situations below may cause inaccuracies with the recording time.

– Recording fast-moving or images containing picture noise.

– Recording a program with poor reception, or a program or video source of low picture quality

You can enjoy advanced edit functions. First you have two options for a DVD-RW (VR mode) and

DVD-R (VR mode): editing either the original recording (called the “original”), or the playback information created from the original (called a

“Playlist”). Since each is different in nature and offers different merits, read the following and select the one that better suits your needs.

To edit original titles

Edits made to the original titles are final. If you plan to retain an unaltered original recording, create a Playlist (see below). The edit functions available for original titles are:

– Renaming a title (page 61).

– Erasing a title (page 58).

– Erasing a chapter (page 59).

– Setting protection against erasure (page 58).

– Erasing a section of a title (A-B Erase) (page 59).

– Dividing a title (page 60).

To create Playlist titles

A Playlist is a group of Playlist titles created from the original title. When you create a Playlist, only the control information necessary for playback, such as the playback order, is stored on the disc.

The original titles are left unaltered.

If you erase an original title used in a Playlist, that

Playlist is also erased.

Example: You have recorded the final few matches of a soccer tournament on a DVD-RW

(VR mode). You want to create a digest with the goal scenes and other highlights, but you also want to keep the original recording.

In this case, you can compile highlight scenes as a

Playlist title.

Before DV/D8 Dubbing

Connecting a DV Camcorder to the DV IN Jack

This section explains dubbing with a DV camcorder via the DV IN jack on the front panel.

If you want to dub by way of the LINE IN jacks,

see “Recording From a VCR or Similar Device” on page 56.

About the DV IN jack

The DV IN jack on this recorder conforms to the i.LINK standard. You can connect any other equipment that has an i.LINK (DV) jack, and record digital signals.

For more information about i.LINK, see “About i.LINK” on page 96.

z

Hint

If you plan to do additional editing on a disc after the initial dub, use the DV IN jack and record on a DVD-RW

(VR mode) or DVD-R (VR mode). Note that erasing unwanted scenes does not free up disc space for DVD-Rs

(VR mode).

Notes

• The DV IN jack is for input only. It will not output signals.

• You cannot use the DV IN jack when:

– your DV camcorder does not work with this recorder.

Connect the camcorder to the LINE IN jack and

follow the instructions of “Recording From a VCR or

Similar Device” on page 56.

– the input signal is not in DVC-SD format. Do not connect a MICROMV format DV camcorder even if it has an i.LINK jack.

– the input signal is in HDV (1080i) format.

– the images on the tape contain copy protection signals, which limit recording.

You can connect a DV camcorder to the DV IN jack on the recorder to record or edit from a DV/

D8 format tape. Operation is straightforward because the DVD recorder will fast forward and rewind the tape for you – you do not need to operate your DV camcorder.

Refer to the instruction manual supplied with the

DV camcorder as well before connecting.

How titles and chapters are created

The dubbed contents on the disc become one title, and the title is then divided into chapters at either

5 or 15-minute intervals, according to the “DVD

Auto Chapter” setting of “Features” in the “Setup” display.

Notes

• To play the dubbed disc on other DVD equipment,

finalize the disc (page 66). If you set “Auto Finalize” to

“On” in the “Features” setup (page 85), the Auto

Finalize function works for DVD-RWs (Video mode),

switch the input selector on your TV so that the signal from the recorder appears on the TV screen.

, If the picture output signal from your recorder passes through your VCR to get to your TV, or if you are connected to a combination TV/VIDEO player, the copy-protection signal applied to some DVD programs could affect picture quality. If you still experience this problem even when you connect your recorder directly to your

TV, try connecting your recorder to your TV’s

S VIDEO input.

, You have set the recorder to progressive format even though your TV cannot accept the progressive signal. In this case, set “Progressive”

to “Off” in the “Video” setup (page 81).

About i.LINK

The DV IN jack on this recorder is an i.LINKcompliant DV IN jack. This section describes the i.LINK standard and its features.

What is i.LINK?

i.LINK is a digital serial interface for handling digital video, digital audio and other data in two directions between equipment having the i.LINK jack, and for controlling other equipment.

i.LINK-compatible pieces of equipment can be connected by a single i.LINK cable. Possible applications are operations and data transactions with various digital AV equipment. When two or more i.LINK-compatible equipment are connected to this recorder in a daisy chain, operations and data transactions are possible with not only the equipment that this recorder is connected to but also with other devices via the directly connected equipment.

Note, however, that the method of operation sometimes varies according to the characteristics and specifications of the equipment to be connected, and that operations and data transactions are sometimes not possible on some connected equipment.

Note

Normally, only one piece of equipment can be connected to this recorder by the i.LINK cable (DV connecting cable). When connecting this recorder to i.LINKcompatible equipment having two or more i.LINK jacks

(DV jacks), see the instruction manual of the equipment to be connected.

About the name “i.LINK”

i.LINK is a more familiar term for IEEE 1394 data transport bus proposed by SONY, and is a trademark approved by many corporations.

IEEE 1394 is an international standard standardized by the Institute of Electrical and

Electronics Engineers.

i.LINK baud rate

i.LINK’s maximum baud rate varies according to the equipment. Three maximum baud rates are defined:

S100 (approx. 100 Mbps*)

S200 (approx. 200 Mbps)

S400 (approx. 400 Mbps)

The baud rate is listed under “Specifications” in the instruction manual of each equipment. It is also indicated near the i.LINK jack on some equipment.

The maximum baud rate of equipment on which it is not indicated such as this unit is “S100.”

When units are connected to equipment having a different maximum baud rate, the baud rate sometimes differs from the indicated baud rate.

* What is Mbps?

Mbps stands for megabits per second, or the amount of data that can be sent or received in one second. For example, a baud rate of 100 Mbps means that 100 megabits of data can be sent in one second.

i.LINK functions on this recorder

For details on how to dub when this recorder is connected to other video equipment having DV

jacks, see page 68.

The DV jack on this recorder can only input DVC-

SD signals. It cannot output signals. The DV jack will not accept MICROMV signals from equipment such as a MICROMV digital video camera with an i.LINK jack.

For further precautions, see the notes on page 68.

For details on precautions when connecting this recorder, also see the instruction manuals for the equipment to be connected.

Required i.LINK cable

Use the Sony i.LINK 4-pin-to-4-pin cable (during

DV/D8 dubbing).

ESP: 5 horas y 25 minutos

LP: 7 horas y 14 minutos

EP: 10 horas y 51 minutos

SLP: 14 horas y 28 minutos

Notas

• En modos de grabación distintos a HQ, la grabadora comprime los datos de audio/video antes de la grabación. Dado que las escenas de movimientos rápidos o la existencia de ruido en la imagen requieren que las tasas de compresión disminuyan, el tamaño de los datos grabados aumenta y el tiempo de grabación disponible se acorta. En la grabación de estas imágenes, se recomienda un modo de grabación que proporcione un tiempo de grabación más largo.

• Los siguientes casos pueden producir inexactitudes en el tiempo de grabación.

– Grabación de imágenes con ruido de imagen o escenas de movimiento rápido.

– Grabación de un programa con recepción defectuosa, o una fuente de programa o video con imagen de baja calidad

– Grabación en un disco ya editado

– Grabación de imágenes fijas o sonido únicamente

• Debido a que el modo de grabación de títulos grabados se calcula después del muestreo de datos grabados durante la reproducción, es posible que se muestre diferente del modo que seleccionó durante la grabación. Sin embargo, la grabación real se realizó correctamente en el modo seleccionado.
