On safety
Should any solid object or liquid fall

further.
About the hard disk drive
The hard disk has a high storage
density, which enables long
recording durations and quick
access to the written data. However,
it can easily be damaged by shock,
vibration or dust, and should be kept
away from magnets. To avoid losing
important data, observe the
following precautions.
• Do not use the recorder in a place
subject to extreme changes in
temperature (temperature gradient
less than 10 °C/hour).
• Do not apply a strong shock to the
recorder.
• Do not place the recorder in a
location subject to mechanical
vibrations or in an unstable
location.
• Do not place the recorder on top of
a heat source, such as a VCR or
AV amplifier (receiver).
• Do not move the recorder with its
AC power cord connected.
• Do not move the recorder for one
minute after you have unplugged
the AC power cord. After one
minute, move the recorder without
shock or vibration.
• Do not disconnect the AC power
cord while the power is on.
• Do not attempt to change the hard
disk. This may result in a
malfunction.
Should the hard disk be damaged,
you cannot recover lost data. The
hard disk is only a temporary
storage space.

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.
On power sources
• 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.
• 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.
• Before disconnecting the AC
power cord, check that the
recorder’s hard disk is not
operating (recording or dubbing)
on the front panel display.
On recording
Make trial recordings before making
the actual recording.
On compensation for lost
recordings
Sony is not liable and will not
compensate for any lost recordings
or relevant losses, including when
recordings are not made due to
reasons including recorder failure,
or when the contents of a recording
are lost or damaged as a result of
recorder failure or repair undertaken
to the recorder. Sony will not
restore, recover, or replicate the
recorded contents under any
circumstances.

may not be recordable, depending
on the type of signal.

Note on playback operations of DVD VIDEOs/
VIDEO CDs
Some playback operations of DVD VIDEOs/
VIDEO CDs may be intentionally set by software
producers. Since this recorder plays DVD
VIDEOs/VIDEO CDs according to the disc
contents the software producers designed, some
playback features may not be available. Also, see
the instructions supplied with the DVD VIDEOs/
VIDEO CDs.
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, the
message “Playback prohibited by region code.”
will appear on the TV screen. Depending on the
DVD VIDEO, no region code indication may be
labeled even though playing the DVD VIDEO is
prohibited by area restrictions.

Troubleshooting guide
If you are having trouble displaying the television
program list, please check the following.
– This recorder downloads the TV Guide On
Screen data several times a day when the
recorder is turned off. Turn off the recorder
when you are not using it (for example, at night).
It may take up to 24 hours for your recorder to
start receiving program listings.
– When the recorder is connected to a cable box,
the cable box must be turned on, the set top box
controller must be connected, and “Set Top Box
Control” in the Settings setup must be set to
“On” (page 86) to download the TV Guide On
Screen data.
– Your area of residence and zip code must be set
correctly (page 85).
– The time must be set correctly. If the time is not
set, set it manually (page 86).
– The television program list is blank when TV
Guide On Screen data is being downloaded or a
satellite or terrestrial digital tuner is in use.
You may be asked to select a channel lineup the
first time you press [TV GUIDE]. Select one of the
available channel lineups. If the channel number
in the program listing does not match the
broadcast station, see “To match the channel
number with the broadcast station” (page 36).

About MP3 audio tracks
MP3 is audio compression technology that
satisfies certain ISO/MPEG regulations.
You can play back DATA CDs (CD-ROMs/CDRs/CD-RWs) recorded in MP3 (MPEG1 Audio
Layer 3) format. However, the discs must be
recorded according to ISO9660 Level 1, Level 2
or Joliet format for the recorder to recognize the
tracks. You can also play discs recorded in Multi
Session.
See the instructions supplied with the CD-R/CDRW drives and the recording software (not
supplied) for details on the recording format.
Note on Multi Session discs
If MP3 audio tracks are recorded in the first
session, the recorder will also play MP3 audio
tracks in other sessions. If audio tracks in Music
CD format are recorded in the first session, only
the first session will be played back.

Notes
• Depending on the software you use to create the DATA
CD, the playback order may differ from the above
illustration.
• Proceeding to the next or another album may take some
time.
• The recorder may not be able to play some DATA CDs
created in the Packet Write format.
• The recorder will play any data with the extension
“.MP3,” even if they are not in MP3 format. Playing
this data may generate a loud noise which could
damage your speaker system.
• The recorder does not conform to audio tracks in
MP3PRO format.
• The playback order above may not be applicable if
there are more than a total of 999 albums and tracks in
the DATA CD.
• The recorder can recognize up to 499 albums (the
recorder will count just albums, including albums that
do not contain MP3 audio tracks). The recorder will not
play any albums beyond the first 499 albums. Of the
first 499 albums, the recorder will play no more than a
combined total of 999 albums and tracks.
• 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.
• Only alphabet and numbers can be used for album or
track names. Anything else is displayed as an asterisk.
MP3 audio track
When you insert a DATA CD and press
H PLAY, the numbered tracks are played
sequentially, from 1 through 7. Any subalbums/tracks contained within a currently
selected album take priority over the next album in
the same tree. (Example: C contains D so 4 is
played before 5.)
z Hints
• You can view the disc information while playing MP3
audio tracks (page 42).
• If you add numbers (01, 02, 03, etc.) to the front of the
track names when you store the tracks in a disc, the
tracks 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.

Before Editing
This recorder offers various edit options for
various disc types. Before you edit, check the disc
type in the front panel display, and select the
option available for your disc (page 8).
Note
You may lose the edited contents if you remove the disc
or a timer recording starts while editing.

-R
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:
– Setting protection against erasure (page 65).
– Labeling a title (page 65).
– Erasing a title (page 65).
– Erasing multiple titles (page 66).
– Erasing a section of a title (A-B Erase) (HDD
and DVD+RWs only) (page 66).
– Erasing titles to open up disc space (Disc Map)
(DVD-RWs in Video mode and DVD+RWs
only) (page 67).
Notes
You can enjoy advanced edit functions. First you
have two options for a DVD-RW (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 and edit a Playlist (see below). The edit
functions available for original titles are:
– Labeling a title (page 65).
– Setting protection against erasure (page 65).
– Erasing a title (page 65).
– Erasing multiple titles (page 66).
– Erasing a section of a title (A-B Erase) (page 66).
To create and edit Playlist titles
A Playlist is a group of Playlist titles created from
the original title for editing purposes. When you
create a Playlist, only the control information
necessary for playback, such as the playback
order, is stored on the disc. Since the original titles
are left unaltered, Playlist titles can be re-edited.
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.
• Once the DVD is finalized, you cannot edit or record on
the disc (except for DVD+RWs and DVD-RWs (VR
mode)).
• You cannot create a Playlist (see below).
• If a message appears and indicates that the disc’s
control information is full, erase unnecessary titles.
In this case, you can compile highlight scenes as a
Playlist title. You can even rearrange the scene
order within the Playlist title (“Creating and
Editing a Playlist” on page 68).
Downloaded From DvDPlayer-Manual.com Sherwood Manuals

The advanced edit functions available for Playlist
titles are:
– Labeling a title (page 65).
– Erasing a title (page 65).
– Erasing multiple titles (page 66).
– Erasing a section of a title (A-B Erase) (page 66).
– Rearranging the title order (page 70).
– Dividing a title into multiple titles (page 70).
– Combining multiple titles into one title
(page 71).
z Hint
You can display the disc’s Playlist titles in the Title List

In this section, “dubbing” refers to “copying a
recorded title on the internal hard disk drive
(HDD) to another disc, or vice versa.” You can
select to dub one title at a time (Title Dubbing –
see “Dubbing a Single Title (Title Dub)” on
page 74), or multiple titles all at once (Multiple
Title Dubbing – see “Dubbing Multiple Titles
(Dub Selected Titles)” on page 75).
Before you start, read the following precautions,
which are common to both dubbing methods.
z Hint
This section deals with dubbing to and from the internal
HDD. If you want to record from a digital video camera
connected to the DV IN jack, see “DV/Digital8 Dubbing
(DV t HDD/DVD)” on page 77. To record from
equipment connected to the LINE IN jacks, see
“Recording From a VCR or Similar Device” (page 53).
Before you start…
• Select the disc type according to your needs
(page 8). This recorder can record on various
discs.
• Timer recordings do not start during dubbing.
Before you start, check the SCHEDULE list
(page 49) to see if there is a timer recording due
to start during dubbing.
• Chapter marks in the original recording do not
remain in the dubbed title. Chapter marks are
entered according to the “Auto Chapter” setting
in Features Setup (page 91).
• For a title whose aspect ratio (16:9 or 4:3) is
mixed:
– When dubbed from the HDD to DVD-RW
(Video mode) or DVD-R, the picture size is
determined by the setting in “DVD Rec.
Picture Size” (page 51).
– When dubbed from HDD to DVD+RW or
DVD+R, the picture size is always 4:3.
– When dubbed from HDD to DVD-RW (VR
mode), the originally recorded picture size is
retained.
• The recorder may not function as described depending
on the disc status. Follow the instructions that appear on
the screen.
• When a message appears and indicates that the control
information is full, erase unnecessary titles (page 65).
• You cannot dub from DVD VIDEOs or a DVD
recorded on other DVD equipment to the HDD.
• Thumbnails that you have set for the originally
recorded title (page 38) will not be retained in the
dubbed title.
About “Dub Mode”
With this recorder, the recording mode for
dubbing is displayed as “Dub Mode.” Two
dubbing methods are available: High-speed
Dubbing and Rec Mode Conversion Dubbing.
Read the following and select according to the
required time, disc space, and picture quality.
Dubbing at high-speed (High-speed Dubbing)
HDD , +RW / -RWVR / -RWVideo / +R /
-R
Allows you to dub what you have stored in the
HDD to a high-speed DVD (4x-speed
DVD+RWs/2x-speed DVD-RWs/8x-speed
DVD+Rs/8x-speed DVD-Rs, or slower versions
of each disc type), without changing the recording
mode. Dubbing speed is increased when the
recording mode of the original title is of a longer
recording mode (such as SLP).
Select “Fast” when selecting the “Dub Mode” in
“Dubbing a Single Title (Title Dub)” (page 74) or
“Dubbing Multiple Titles (Dub Selected Titles)”
(page 75). The minimum required time is as
follows (approximate).
Example: When a 120 minute-title is dubbed to a
high-speed DVD-R in LP mode, dubbing becomes
12 times faster, and takes a minimum of 10
minutes. (120 minutes ÷ 12 = 10 minutes).

/
-R
Allows you to dub from the HDD to a DVD or vice
versa, in a dubbing mode that differs from the
original recordings. For example, when you dub
an HQ title (data size is large) in SP mode, you can
reduce the data size, saving more titles using less
space.
Select a mode different from the original recording
in “Dub Mode” in the steps of “Dubbing a Single
Title (Title Dub)” (page 74) or “Dubbing Multiple
Titles (Dub Selected Titles)” (page 75).
When an HQ or HQ+ title is converted to another
mode, the recorder automatically assigns an
appropriate bit rate, thus retaining the original
picture quality as much as possible (“Dynamic
VBR Dubbing”).
Note
The picture quality will not improve even if a title is
converted to a recording mode of better picture quality.
Dubbing restriction
Some DVD VIDEOs or TV programs contain
copy protection signals such as “Copy-Never” or
“Copy-Once.” You cannot record such contents on
this recorder (only a gray, blank screen will be
recorded). Be especially careful when dubbing on
a non-rewritable DVD such as a DVD-R.

titles:
– Titles recorded in HQ+.
– Titles that contain both stereo or monaural audio
tracks (except DVD-RWs (VR mode)).
– Titles recorded in mixed picture size (4:3 and 16:9

◆About “VBR”
VBR (Variable Bit Rate) is an effective method of
allocating a suitable bit amount per second. Fine
detail pictures or dynamically moving pictures are
assigned a larger amount, while static pictures are
assigned less, for optimum picture quality.

Specifications and design are subject to change
without notice.
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 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.LINKcompatible 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 i.LINK
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 77.
The DV jack on this recorder can only input DVCSD signals. It cannot output signals. The DV jack
will not accept MICRO MV signals from
equipment such as a MICRO MV digital video
camera with an i.LINK jack.
For further precautions, see the notes on page 77.
For details on precautions when connecting this
recorder, also see the instruction manuals for the
equipment to be connected.
Required i.LINK cable

Glossary
DVD-RW (page 8)
Sections of a picture or a music feature that are
smaller than titles. A title is composed of several
chapters. Depending on the disc, no chapters may
be recorded.
A DVD-RW is a recordable and rewritable disc
that is the same size as a DVD VIDEO. The DVDRW has two different modes: VR mode and Video
mode. DVDs created in Video mode have the
same format as a DVD VIDEO, while discs
created in VR (Video Recording) mode allow the
contents to be programmed or edited.
Copy protection signals (page 46)
DVD+R (page 8)
Copy restriction set by copyright owners, etc.
These signals are included in some software or TV
programs and restrict recording on this recorder.
A DVD+R (read “plus R”) is a recordable disc that
is the same size as a DVD VIDEO. Contents can
be recorded only once to a DVD+R, and will have
the same format as a DVD VIDEO.
Chapter (page 61)
Dolby Digital (page 90)
Digital audio compression technology developed
by Dolby Laboratories. This technology conforms
to multi-channel surround sound. The rear channel
is stereo and there is a discrete subwoofer channel
in this format. Dolby Digital provides the same
discrete channels of high quality digital audio
found in “Dolby Digital” theater surround sound
systems. Good channel separation is realized
because all of the channel data is recorded
discretely, and little deterioration occurs because
all channel data processing is digital.
Digital audio compression technology by Digital

Good channel separation is realized because all of
the channel data is recorded discretely, and little

DVD+RW (page 8)
A DVD+RW (read “plus RW”) is a recordable and
rewritable disc. DVD+RWs use a recording
format that is comparable to the DVD VIDEO
format.
A DVD-R is a recordable disc that is the same size
as a DVD VIDEO. Contents can be recorded only
once to a DVD-R, and will have the same format
as a DVD VIDEO.
DVD VIDEO (page 8)
A disc that contains up to eight hours of moving
pictures on a disc the same diameter as a CD.
The data capacity of a single-layer and singlesided DVD is 4.7 GB (Giga Byte), which is 7
times that of a CD. The data capacity of a doublelayer and single-sided DVD is 8.5 GB, a singlelayer and double-sided DVD is 9.4 GB, and
double-layer and double-sided DVD is 17 GB.
The picture data uses the MPEG 2 format, which
is a worldwide standard of digital compression
technology. The picture data is compressed to
about 1/40 (average) of its original size. The DVD
also uses a variable rate coding technology that
changes the data to be allocated according to the
status of the picture. Audio information is
recorded in a multi-channel format, such as Dolby
Digital, allowing you to enjoy a more real audio
presence.
Furthermore, various advanced functions such as
the multi-angle, multilingual, and Parental
Control functions are provided on the DVD.

Hard disk drive (page 8)
A hard disk drive is a whole mechanical system
that consists of disks and drive. Disks are flat,
circular, rigid plates coated with a thin magnetic
media. Magnetic heads record data on the rapidly
spinning disks, and this enables the speedy and
efficient reading and writing of data.
Interlace format (page 18)
Interlace format shows every other line of an
image as a single “field” and is the standard
method for displaying images on television. The
even number field shows the even numbered lines
of an image, and the odd numbered field shows the
odd numbered lines of an image.
Original (page 64)
Titles actually recorded on a DVD-RW (VR
mode). Erasing original titles frees up disc space.
Playlist (page 64)
Playback information created from the actual
recordings on a DVD-RW (VR mode). A Playlist
leaves the original titles as they are, and contains
only the information needed to control playback.
A Playlist title takes up very little disc space.
Progressive format (page 18)
Compared to the Interlace format that alternately
shows every other line of an image (field) to create
one frame, the Progressive format shows the entire
image at once as a single frame. This means that
while the Interlace format can show 30 frames/60
fields in one second, the Progressive format can
show 60 frames in one second. The overall picture
quality increases and still images, text, and
horizontal lines appear sharper.
Title (page 61)
The longest section of a picture or music feature
on a DVD, movie, etc., in video software, or the
entire album in audio software.
Track (page 61)
Sections of a music feature on a CD (the length of
a song).
