Precautions
Handling the unit
When shipping the unit
The original shipping carton and packing materials
come in handy. For maximum protection, re-pack the
unit as it was originally packaged at the factory.
When setting up the unit
The picture and sound of a nearby TV, VCR, or radio
may be distorted during playback. In this case, position
the unit away from the TV, VCR, or radio, or turn off the
unit after removing the disc.
Cleaning discs

Cleaning the unit
About the
To clean the cabinet
Use a soft, dry cloth. If the surfaces are extremely dirty,
use a soft cloth lightly moistened with a mild detergent
solution. Do not use strong solvents such as alcohol,
benzine, or thinner, as these might damage the surface

BROADCAST TYPE (STEREO/SAP/MONO)
Multichannel Television Sound (MTS) carries stereo and/or
Second Audio Program (SAP) bilingual signals. Set this display
to the desired position when both MTS stereo and SAP signals
are received. When only one of the MTS signal is received, the
DVD+VCR automatically selects the corresponding receiving
mode (Stereo or SAP) regardless of the selected position. For
normal operation, the display should be in the STEREO position. The DVD+VCR will then record a STEREO program when
available, and record a mono program IF the program is NOT
IN STEREO.
For weak STEREO and/or SAP broadcasts, changing the display to mono may give clearer sound.
BROADCAST TYPE can be switched between STEREO,
SAP, and MONO using b/B.

Additional programs may be entered by repeating
steps 1-12.
If the starting and ending
times of two or more timer
recordings overlap on the
same day, priority is given to
the earliest recording. For
example, in the diagram at
left Program number 2 will
not be recorded until Program number 1 is finished. The
first part of Program number 2 will not be recorded.
Likewise, Program number 3 will not be recorded until
Program number 2 is finished, and so on.
Cable Users: If your cable hookup is via a Cable
converter box, you can program multiple recordings
only on the converter box output channel. This is
because the converter determines what channel you
view through your DVD+VCR.
Tip
If you are finished programming and you want to set the
DVD+VCR to record the programs you have entered,
MAKE SURE YOU HAVE INSERTED A TAPE INTO THE
DVD+VCR. The DVD+VCR is now set to record the preset
programs.
Notes
If the power fails or the DVD+VCR is unplugged from the AC
outlet, the correct clock time and timer settings are kept in
memory for approximately 3 seconds. After 3 seconds, the
clock and program timer must be reset when power is
restored. Reset the clock according to instructions.
After setting up a timer recording, recording will start if no other
timer recordings are scheduled to occur at the same time (see

An MP3 file is audio data compressed by using the
MPEG1 audio layer-3 file-coding scheme. We call
files that have the “.mp3” file extension “MP3 files”.
The player can not read an MP3 file that has a file
extension other than “.mp3”.
Some discs may be incompatible due to different
recording formats or the condition of the disc.
About WMA (Windows Media Audio)
A WMA file is a Microsoft audio compression
technology.
WMA offers approximately twice the audio compression of the MP3 format.

MP3/WMA Disc compatibility with this player is
limited as follows:
1. Sampling Frequency / 8 - 48 kHz (MP3),
22 - 48kHz (WMA).
2. Bit rate / 32 - 320kbps (MP3), 40 - 192kbps (WMA).
3. CD-R physical format should be “ISO 9660”.
4. If you record MP3/WMA files using the software
which cannot create a FILE SYSTEM, for example
“Direct-CD” etc., it is impossible to playback
MP3/WMA files. We recommend that you use “EasyCD Creator”, which creates an ISO9660 file system.
5. A single session disc requires MP3/WMA files in the
first track. If there is no MP3/WMA file in the 1st
track, it cannot play back MP3/WMA files. If you
wish to playback MP3/WMA files, format all the data
in the disc or use a new one.
6. File names should be named using 8 letters or less
and must incorporate “.mp3” or “.wma” extension
e.g. “********.MP3” or “********.WMA”.
7. Do not use special letters such as “/ : * ? “ < > ” etc.
8. Total number of files and folders on the disc should
be less than 999.
This DVD+VCR requires discs/recordings to meet
certain technical standards in order to achieve optimal
playback quality. Pre-recorded DVDs are automatically
set to these standards. There are many different types
of recordable disc formats (including CD-R containing
MP3 or WMA files). That require certain pre-existing
conditions (see above) to insure compatible playback.
Customers should also note that permission must
be required in order to download MP3/WMA files
and music from the Internet. Our company has no
right to grant such permission. Permission should
always be sought from the copyright owner.

Moving to Another File
Depending upon the size and number of the JPEG
files, it may take awhile for the DVD+VCR to read the
disc’s contents. If you don’t see an on-screen display
after several minutes, some of the files are too big —
reduce the resolution of the JPEG files to less than
3760x3840 pixels and burn another disc.
Total number of files and folders on the disc should
be less than 999.
Some discs may be incompatible due to different
recording formats or the condition of the disc.
When you are using software such as “Easy CD
Creator” to burn the JPEG files onto the CD-R,
ensure that all the selected files have the “.jpg” extensions when copying into the CD layout.
If the files have “.jpe” or “.jpeg” extensions, please
rename them as “.jpg” files.
File names without the “.jpg” extension will not be recognized by this DVD+VCR, even though the files are
shown as JPEG image files in Windows Explorer.
