Information on DVD recording
DVD-RW

DVD-R

This DVD recorder can record to DVD-R and


DVD-RW discs. When recording, you will need to
select a recording format between Video mode and
VR mode depending on the disc format. The disc
format for DVD-R is always Video format, then a
recording format will be Video mode, so that you
can play these discs, which are once finalized, in a
regular DVD player.
On the other hand, when recording to DVD-RW, a
recording format will be Video mode or VR
mode because a disc format is available between
Video Recording format and Video format for
DVD-RW.

Restrictions on recording
You cannot record copy-protected video using this
DVD recorder. Copy-protected video includes
DVD-Video discs and some satellite broadcasts. If
copy-protected material is encountered during a

Video that is copy-once only can only be recorded using a DVD-RW disc in VR mode with CPRM
(see below).
When recording a TV broadcast or throgh an
external input, you can display copy control information on screen. (see page xx).
What is CPRM?
CPRM is a copy protection system with scramble system regarding the recording of copy
once broadcast programs. CPRM stands for
Content Protection for Recordable Media.
This DVD recorder is CPRM compatible, which
means that you can record copy-once broadcast programs, but you cannot then make a
copy of those recordings. CPRM recordings
can only be made on DVD-RW discs formatted
in VR mode, and CPRM recordings can only be
played on players that are specifically compatible with CPRM.

Troubleshooting
Before requesting service for this DVD recorder, check the table below for a possible cause of the problem
you are experiencing. Some simple checks or a minor adjustment on your part may eliminate the problem
and restore proper operation.
Symptom

Remedy

Power
The power does not turn on.

Check that the AC power cord is connected securely.

There is no picture.

Re-connect the connecting cord securely.


The connecting cords are damaged.
The Setup Display appears. Press RETURN
button to turn
off the display.
Check the connection to your TV (page XX).
Switch the input selector on your TV (such as to "LINE1") so
that the signal from the DVD recorder appears on the TV
screen.

Picture noise appears.

The disc is dirty or flawed.


If the picture output signal from the DVD 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 the
DVD recorder directly to your TV, try connecting the DVD
recorder to your TV's S-VIDEO input.

TV program reception does not fill the


screen.

Try to set the channels with "Auto Preset" in SETUP menu


(page XX).
Select a channel of any TV program using the CH o / p
buttons.
Reorient the TV antenna.
Adjust the picture (see the TV's intruction manual).

Glossary
Analog audio
An electrical signal that directly
represents sound. Compare this
to digital audio which can be an
electrical signal, but is an indirect
representation of sound. See also
Digital audio.
Aspect ratio
The width of a TV screen relative
to its height. Conventional TVs
are 4:3 (in other words, the
screen is almost square);
widescreen models are 16:9 (the
screen is almost twice as wide as
it is high).

Digital audio
An indirect representation of
sound by numbers. During
recording, the sound is measured
at discrete intervals (44, 100
times a second for CD audio) by
an analog-to-digital converter,
generating a stream of numbers.
On playback, a digital-to-analog
converter generates an analog signal based on these numbers. See
also Sampling frequency and
Analog audio.

Regions code
Regions associate discs and players with particular areas of the
world. This unit will only play
discs that have compatible region
codes. You can find the region
code of your unit by looking on
the rear panel. Some discs are
compatible with more than one
region (or all regions).

Others

Chapter
Just as a book is split up into several chapters, a title on a DVD
disc is usually divided into chapters. See also Title.

PCM
(Pulse Code Modulation)
The most common system of
encoding digital audio, found on
CDs and DAT. Excellent quality,
but requires a lot of data compared to formats such as Dolby
Digital and MPEG audio. For compatibility with digital audio
recorders (CD, MD and DAT)
and AV amplifiers with digital
inputs, this unit can convert
Dolby Digital and MPEG audio to
PCM. See also Digital audio.

Title (DVD only)


A collection of chapters on DVD
disc. See also chapter.
Track
Audio CDs and Video CDs use
tracks to divide up the content of
a disc. The DVD equivalent is
called a chapter. See also Chapter.

Dolby Digital
With multichannel audio, this high
quality surround system is used in
many movie theaters around the
world.
