Note
This equipment has been tested and
found to comply with the limits for a
Class B digital device, pursuant to Part
15 of the FCC Rules. These limits are
designed to provide reasonable
protection against harmful interference
in a residential installation. This
equipment generates, uses, and can
radiate radio frequency energy and, if
not installed and used in accordance
with the instructions, may cause
harmful interference to radio
communications. However, there is no
guarantee that interference will not
occur in a particular installation. If this
equipment does cause harmful
interference to radio or television
reception, which can be determined by
turning the equipment off and on, the
user is encouraged to try to correct the
interference by one or more of the
following measures:
– Reorient or relocate the receiving
antenna.
– Increase the separation between the
equipment and receiver.
– Connect the equipment into an outlet
on a circuit different from that to
which the receiver is connected.
– Consult the dealer or an experienced
radio/TV technician for help.
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 and
cause damage to the video head,
tape, and the optical block. Should
this occur, the recorder may not
operate properly. When you first
install the recorder, or when you
move it from a cold to a warm
location, remove the disc and tape
and leave the recorder turned on
for about three hours 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, discs, and
cassettes 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.
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.

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 121).
– 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).

Note on DualDiscs
A DualDisc is a two sided disc product which
mates DVD recorded material on one side with
digital audio material on the other side.
However, since the audio material side does not
conform to the Compact Disc (CD) standard,
playback on this product is not guaranteed.
Region code (DVD VIDEO only)
Your recorder has a region code printed on the rear
of the unit and will only play DVD VIDEOs
(playback only) labeled with identical region
codes. This system is used to protect copyrights.
DVD VIDEOs labeled ALL will also play on this
recorder.
If you try to play any other DVD VIDEO, a
message will appear on the TV screen to indicate
that the disc is not playable. Depending on the
DVD VIDEO, no region code indication may be
labeled even though playing the DVD VIDEO is
prohibited by area restrictions.
Some DVD+RWs/DVD+Rs, DVD-RWs/DVDRs, or CD-RWs/CD-Rs cannot be played on this
recorder due to the recording quality or physical
condition of the disc, or the characteristics of the
recording device and authoring software. The disc
will not play if it has not been correctly finalized.
For more information, see the operating
instructions for the recording device.
Notes
• You cannot mix VR mode and Video mode on the same
DVD-RW or DVD-R. To change the DVD-RW’s
format, reformat the disc (page 64). Note that a disc’s
contents will be erased after reformatting.
• You cannot shorten the time required for recording
even with high-speed discs. Also, you cannot record on
the disc if the disc is not 1x speed compatible.
• It is recommended that you use discs with “For Video”
printed on their packaging.
• You cannot add new recordings to DVD-RWs (Video
mode), DVD+Rs, or DVD-Rs (Video mode) recorded
on other equipment.
• You may not be able to further record on a DVD+RW
recorded on other equipment. Note that recording on
such discs may cause the recorder to rewrite the DVD
menu.
• If the disc contains PC data unrecognizable by this
recorder, the data may be erased.
Quick Guide to Disc Types

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/CDRs/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.
44US
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.

Before you start recording…
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 103), the Auto Finalize function works for
DVD-RWs (Video mode), DVD-Rs (Video mode) and
DVD+Rs after recording. For details, see page 67.

DVD 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 Hint
The approximate recording time for DVD+R DL
(Double Layer) discs is as follows:
HQ: 1 hour 48 minutes
HSP: 2 hours 42 minutes
SP: 3 hours 37 minutes
LSP: 4 hours 31 minutes
ESP: 5 hours 25 minutes
LP: 7 hours 14 minutes
EP: 10 hours 51 minutes
SLP: 14 hours 28 minutes
Notes
Recording mode
Like the SP or EP recording mode of VCRs, this
recorder has eight different recording modes.
Select a recording mode according to the time and
picture quality you need. For example, if picture
quality is your top priority, select “HQ” (high
quality). If recording time is your priority, “SLP”
can be a possible choice.
• 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
,continued
47US
– Recording on a disc that has already been edited
– Recording only a still picture or just sound
• Since the recording mode for recorded titles is
calculated after sampling the recorded data during
playback, it may be displayed differently from the
mode you selected when recording. However, the
actual recording itself is correctly made in the selected
mode.
Recording main and sub sounds
You can record the different soundtracks on a
DVD-RW (VR mode) or DVD-R (VR mode) from
equipment connected to the LINE 1 IN or LINE 2
IN jacks. When playing the disc, you can select
main or sub sound by pressing the AUDIO button.
Set “Line Audio Input” in “Audio” setup to
“Main/Sub” in the Setup Display (page 102).
When recording on other discs, select either sound
track with the connected equipment before
recording.

Pictures with copy protection cannot be recorded
on this recorder. Recording stops when a copy
guard signal is detected.

DVD Editing
Before Editing
This recorder offers various edit options for
various disc types. Before you edit, check the disc
type in the “Disc Information” display (page 64),
and select the option available for your disc.
Notes
• You may lose the edited contents if you remove the disc
or a timer recording starts while editing.
• You cannot edit recordings on DVD-RWs (Video
mode), DVD+Rs, or DVD-Rs (Video mode) recorded
on other DVD equipment.
+RW
-RWVideo
+R
-RVideo
You can perform simple edits. Since Video mode
titles are actual recordings on the disc, you cannot
undo any edits you make. The edit functions
available for Video mode titles are:
– Renaming a title (page 61).
– Erasing a title (page 58).
– Setting protection against erasure (DVD+RWs
only) (page 58).
– Erasing a section of a title (A-B Erase)
(DVD+RWs only) (page 59).
– Dividing a title (DVD+RWs only) (page 60).
Notes
• Once the disc is finalized, you cannot edit or record on
the disc (except for DVD+RWs).
• If a message appears and indicates that the disc’s
control information is full, erase unnecessary titles.
-RVR
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.

DV/D8 Dubbing (DV/D8 t DVD)
Before DV/D8 Dubbing
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 Another 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 115.
Connecting a DV Camcorder
to the DV IN Jack
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.
VCR-DVD recorder
DV IN
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).

i.LINK cable
(not supplied)
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 Another
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.

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.
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’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.

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.
