Track
A distinct element of audiovisual information, such as
the picture or sound track for a specific language
(DVD), or a musical piece on a video or audio CD.

to locate the track you want. DVD discs allow one
track of video (with multiple angles) and several
tracks of audio.

To view or record a CATV channel
a Antenna:
Disconnect the antenna from the rear of the TV and
identify the antenna cable. If it is a round 75 ohm
coaxial cable connect it directly to the jack marked
ANT.IN on your Recorder. If your antenna cable is flat

(not supplied) and slip the adaptor over the ANT.IN
jack. Don’t attempt to screw it into to the Recorder.
2. Set the Recorder channel selector to the cable
output channel. (Example: CH3)
If your cable connection has no converter or
descrambler, unscrew the cable from your TV and
attach it to the ANT.IN jack on the Recorder. If a converter is required connect a coaxial cable from the
wall jack to the IN connector on the converter, and a
coaxial cable from the OUT connector on the converter to the ANT.IN on your Recorder. This cable hookup
permits both TV and Recorder operation.

read the files. If you don’t see an on-screen display after several minutes, some of the files may
be too large — reduce the resolution of the JPEG
files to less than 4M pixels.
The total number of files and folders on the disc
should be less than 999.
Some discs may be incompatible due to a different recording format or the condition of disc.
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” file.
File names without “.jpg” extension will not be
able to be read by this recorder. Even though the

Notes for recording
Notes:
• This Recorder cannot record CD-R or CD-RW
discs.
•
•
Fingerprints and small scratches on a disc can
affect playback and/or recording performance.
Please take proper care of your discs.
The company does not hold any responsibility to
compensate the contents which should have
been recorded, and any losses or damages (e.g.
losses of business profit, or business intermission) that may arise from malfunction of this
recorder (not recording/editing as intended).

Disc types and recording formats, modes,
and settings
This recorder can play many different kinds of DVD
discs: pre-recorded DVD-Video discs, DVD-RW,
DVD-R, DVD+RW and DVD+R discs. The disc format
for DVD-R, DVD+R, DVD+RW discs is always “Video
format”—the same as pre-recorded DVD-Video discs.
This means that once finalized, you can play a DVDR, DVD+R, or DVD+RW in a regular DVD player.
The DVD-RW disc format is Video Recording (VR)
format or Video format. You can change Recording
format, if required. (Reinitializing the disc will erase
the contents of the disc.)
The recording mode is closely related to the disc format. If the disc format is Video Recording format,
then the recording mode is VR mode; if the disc format is Video mode, then the recording mode is Video
mode (except for DVD-Video, which is not recordable, and so does not have a recording mode).
These can be changed as required for each recording and determine the picture quality and how much
space the recording will take up on the disc.

Recording
•
The recording times shown are not exact
because the recorder uses variable bit-rate video
compression. This means that the exact recording time will depend on the material being recorded.
When recording a TV broadcast, if the reception
is poor or the picture contains interference, the
recording times may be shorter.
If you record still pictures or audio only, the
recording time may be longer.
The displayed times for recording and time
remaining may not always add up to exactly the
length of the disc.
The recording time available may decrease if you
heavily edit a disc.
If using a DVD-RW disc, make sure you change
the recording format (Video mode or VR mode)
before you record anything on the disc. See page
23 (Initialize) for how to do this.
When using a DVD-R or DVD+R disc, you can
keep recording until the disc is full, or until you
finalize the disc. Before you start a recording
session, check the amount of recording time left
on the disc.
When using a DVD-RW disc in Video mode,
recording time available will only increase if you
erase the last title recorded on the disc.
The Delete Title option in the Title List (Original)
menu only hides the title, it does not actually
erase the title from the disc and increase the
recording time available (except for the last
recorded title on a DVD-RW disc in Video mode).
Overwrite recording is available using DVD+RW
discs.
When using a DVD+R/RW, the recorder will execute the Menu-making operation to update the new
title and editing when removing the disc from the
recorder.

and whether you’re editing Original content, or a
Playlist.
There are two ways to edit VR mode DVD-RW discs.
You can directly edit the Original content of the disc,
or you can create and edit a Playlist. The Playlist
doesn’t actually change any of the content on the
disc, but just controls how the content is played back.
1. Press DISC MENU/LIST to display the Title List
menu.
Playback should be stopped when you do this.
When selecting titles, use the v / V buttons to
display the previous/next page if there are more

VR Mode: Original and
Playlist Editing
Titles, Chapters and Parts
Titles in the disc’s original content contain one or
more chapters. When you insert a disc’s title into the
Playlist, all the chapters within that title also appear.
In other words, chapters in the Playlist behave exactly as chapters on a DVD-Video disc do. Parts are
sections of Original or Playlist titles. From the Original
and Playlist menu you can add or delete parts.
Adding a chapter or title to the Playlist creates a new
title made up of a section (ie., chapter) of an Original
title. Deleting a part removes part of a title from the
Original or Playlist menu.
Caution
When editing using the Delete, Add and Move functions, the start and end frames may not be exactly
as set in the start and end point display.
During Playlist playback, you may notice a momentary pause between edits. This is not a malfunction.
Is editing a DVD like editing a video
tape?
No. When you edit a video tape you need one video
deck to play the original tape and another to record
the edits. With DVD, you edit by making a ‘Playlist’ of
what to play and when to play it. On playback, the
Recorder plays the disc according to the Playlist.
Adding Chapter Markers
-RWVR

+R
You can create chapters within a title by inserting
