Introduction

With it, you will be able to record TV programs or edit

DVD Recorder DVD (Digital Versatile Disc) is the new storage medium that combines the convenience of the Compact Disc with the latest advanced digital video technology. DVD Video uses state-of-the-art MPEG2 data compression technology to register an entire movie on a single 5-inch disc. DVDs variable bitrate compression, running at up to 9.8 Mbits/second, captures even the most complex pictures in their original quality. The crystal-clear digital pictures have a horizontal resolution of over 500 lines, with 720 pixels (picture elements) to each line. This resolution is more than double that of VHS, superior to Laser Disc, and entirely comparable with digital masters made in recording studios.

DVD recording is the next step in video technology. DVD+ReWritable (DVD+RW) uses phase-change media, the same technology that formed the basis for CD- ReWritable. A high-power laser is used to change the reectivity of the recording layer. This process can be repeated more than a thousand times. DVD+Recordable (DVD+R) uses discs based on an organic dye, a technology pioneered with the successful CD-Recordable format, to produce discs that keep your data for a lifetime.

Your DVD Recorder is a Recorder and player for digital video discs, with a two-way compatibility to the universal DVD Video standard. This means that: - existing pre-recorded DVD Video discs can play on your DVD Recorder and - recordings, made on your DVD Recorder, can play on most DVD Video players and DVD-ROM drives.

and archive your own video camera recordings. Superb digital picture and sound quality, quick access to the tracks you have recorded and extensive playback features contribute to a completely new video experience.

From now on you will enjoy full-length movies with true cinema picture quality and stereo or Multi-channel sound (depending on the disc and on your playback set-up). You will nd your Recorder remarkably easy to use, with the on-screen display on your TV, the display on the DVD recorder and remote control.

Cleaning discs Some problems occur because the disc inside the Recorder is dirty. To avoid these problems, clean your discs regularly in the following way:

When a disc becomes dirty, clean it with a cleaning cloth. Wipe the disc in a straight line from the center out to the edge.

Caution: Do not use solvents such as benzine, thinner, commercially available cleaners, or anti-static spray intended for analog discs. Do not use commercially available cleaning discs to clean the lens, as these discs may damage the optical unit.

Remote control

Loading the batteries

1 Remove the battery compartment cover. 2 Insert two AA (LR-6) batteries as indicated inside the

battery compartment. 3 Replace the cover.

Caution: Do not mix old and new batteries. Never mix different types of batteries (standard, alkaline, etc.). This may reduce the lifetime of the batteries.

Recorder - Please refer to your TV, VCR, Stereo and any other User Manual(s) as necessary to make the optimal connections. - Do not connect the power cords until all other connections are made. - Do not connect your DVD Recorder to your TV via your VCR. The video quality could be distorted by the copy protection system. - For better sound, connect the Recorders audio outputs to your amplier, receiver, stereo system or A/V equipment. See Connecting to an A/V receiver or A/V amplier.

Caution: Do not connect the Recorders audio output to the phono input of your audio system. This could damage your equipment.

Step 1: Connecting to the antenna or Cable TV signal

1 Remove the antenna cable from your TV and connect it to the ANTENNA jack at the back of the DVD Recorder.

2 Connect one end of the antenna cable supplied (1) to the TV jack on the DVD Recorder and the other end to the antenna input jack on your TV.

The antenna connection transmits TV channels through the Recorder to the TV. You still need a video connection to send DVD playback from the Recorder to the TV. See Connecting to a TV.

Step 2: Connecting to a TV This DVD Recorder is equipped with Directional Correlational Deinterlacing, known as DCDi. DCDi was developed by Faroudja Laboratories for ultra-high-end home theater equipment to eliminate the jagged edges that appear when standard interlaced video is viewed on Progressive Scan displays. This patented technology identies edges at any angle in moving video images and interpolates along the edge, pixel-by-pixel, to produce smooth, natural looking images.

To obtain the highest possible picture and sound quality from your TV, use the Progressive Scan video jacks on the DVD Recorder and TV.

Progressive Scan connection Connect the PROG SCAN OUT (YPBPR) jacks on the

Recorder to the corresponding IN jacks on the TV, using the Component Video cable supplied (2) as shown in the drawing.

jacks on the Recorder to the corresponding AUDIO IN jacks on the TV using the audio cables supplied (4).

Otherwise, connect the VIDEO IN jack on the DVD Recorder (yellow) to the corresponding OUT jack on the video camera. Use the video cable supplied (3). Then connect the AUDIO Left (white) and Right (red) IN jacks of the DVD Recorder to the corresponding OUT jacks on the video camera using the AUDIO cable supplied (4).

If your video camera has mono sound, use only the left audio connector. In this case the sound will be recorded on both audio channels.

Notes You will need only one video connection and one audio connection: only the i-link DV connection carries both video and audio. You may not use all the jacks on the DVD Recorder.

Recording

A disc can hold up to 48 titles (including empty titles).

Before you start recording Recordings on a DVD+RW disc are called titles. Every title consists of one or more chapters.

For more information about how to go to other titles or chapters see Playback - General features.

Important: Recordings on a DVD+RW begin at the disc pointer, the point where the last recording stopped. Other recordings may be overwritten without notice, unless the disc is write protected. In this respect, your DVD Recorder behaves just like a Video Cassette Recorder.

If you want to make a recording without the risk of overwriting earlier recordings use the safe Record Function (see Manual Recording - Safe Recording).

In the Index Picture Screen you can select the point where you want to start your recording. Use w/v (down/up cursor) and / to select a location on the disc bar at the right of the Index Picture Screen.

Your DVD Recorder always checks the disc that you have inserted:

When a DVD+RW/+R disc is inserted on which recordings have been made, the Index Picture Screen is shown on your TV screen. If the inserted disc is a completely empty recordable disc, the message EMPTY DISC appears on the display. If the inserted disc is a DVD+RW disc with a content that is not DVD video compatible (e.g. a data disc), a dialog box is shown with the option to erase or eject the disc. You can only record on this disc after erasing it with the REC.

When this maximum is reached, the on-screen message Too many titles appears if you want to make a new recording. You have to erase a title rst. See Managing Disc Content - Erasing a Title.

Notes: - You can not access the system menu while recording. - On a disc containing PAL recordings, no NTSC recordings can be made and vice versa. On an empty disc, either type of recordings can be made. - No recordings can be made from so-called Pseudo-PAL or PAL-60 sources. - Power interruption to the Recorder while recording on a DVD+R or a unit failure/system crash may destroy all material recorded on the Disc.

Manual recording of a TV channel or from a video camera

Checking input Normally, the DVD Recorder displays the contents of the current disc on the screen, allowing you to select a place on the disc to start recording. However, if you want to view TV channels, press the MONITOR so that TV programming appears on the TV. In this mode you can choose channels directly with the digit buttons 0-9 on the remote control. Make sure your TV is on the correct Video In channel. Press MONITOR again to return to disc viewing only at the Recorder.

Timer programming The DVD Recorder needs the following information for every programmed recording: - the date on which the recording is to be made; - the channel; - the start and stop time of the recording; - the recording mode

The DVD Recorder stores all the information mentioned above in a timer block. You can program up to six timer blocks, one year in advance.

When you have programmed the timer, a red line on the disc bar (both on the display and on the Index Picture Screen) indicate what part of the disc will be overwritten by the programmed recording from the current disc position.

When all timer blocks are full, timer programming and VCR Plus+ system cannot be accessed. For clearing a timer block, see Cleaning a Timer block. When using timer recording. We recommend that you set the timer recording at least 1-2 minutes ahead of the actual published program start time to ensure the recording of all the desired broadcast material.

This is due to the initial 20 seconds of spin time required for the Disc to ready itself for operation. Also, it is normal for networks to begin the broadcast of programs about one minute prior to the announced time. This is done to possibly catch the viewers attention as they channel scan or surf through available channel selections.

Timer programming with the VCR Plus+ system

A PlusCode number is a number of up to eight digits, printed in most TV guides next to the start time of a TV program. It contains all the information you need for programming a timer.

Troubleshooting

If it appears that the DVD Recorder is faulty, rst consult this checklist. It may be that something has been overlooked.

E n

gl is

Under no circumstances attempt to repair the system yourself; this will invalidate the warranty. Look for the specic

symptom(s). Then perform only the actions listed to remedy the specic symptom(s).

Symptom Remedy

The Recorder does not respond to the remote control

Aim the remote control directly at the sensor on the front of the Recorder. Avoid all obstacles which may interfere with the signal path. Inspect or replace the batteries in the remote control.

No power Make sure power cord is properly connected. Check if there is power at the AC outlet by plugging in another appliance.

No picture Check if the TV is switched on. Check the video connection.

Distorted picture / distorted sound Check the disc for ngerprints and clean the disc with a soft cloth, wiping from the center to the edge in a straight line. Sometimes a small amount of picture distortion may appear. This is not a malfunction.

Recorder does not play disc Ensure the disc label is facing upward and the right disc type is inserted. Clean the disc. Check if the disc is defective by trying another disc. Check if the region code of the disc matches the region code of the Recorder (pre-recorded DVD discs only). See playing a pre-recorded DVD- Video disc. Check if Child Lock is activated.

No sound Check audio connections. If using a HiFi amplier, try another sound source.

Distorted sound from HiFi amplier Check to make sure that no audio connections are made to the ampliers phono input. Check to make sure that analog input of the amplier is not connected to the digital output of the DVD Recorder.

Distorted or black and white picture with DVD or Video CD disc

The disc format does not match the color system of the TV (PAL/NTSC).

No audio at digital output Check the digital connections. Check the settings menu to make sure the digital output is set to on. Check if the audio format of the selected audio language matches your receiver capabilities.

The recorder cannot nd any channels higher than 13

Auto Cable Detect has erroneously selected cable or antenna. Select the correct type in the Installation menu. See User preferences - Installation - Cable/Antenna.

Buttons on the DVD Recorder do not work Disconnect and reconnect the DVD Recorder from the power outlet. If this does not solve the problem, check if the remote control still works. If so, the Recorder is probably in trade mode. Disconnect the Recorder from the power source and reconnect it while pressing and holding / and 9 for a few seconds.

Recorder does not respond to all operating commands during playback

Some operations are not permitted by the disc. Refer to the instructions in the disc jacket or case.

No new title can be recorded Check if the maximum number of titles has been reached (message: Too many titles on screen). If so, delete a title next to a free space. Check if the disc is write protected. If so, unlock the disc in the disc settings menu (message: Disc locked on screen).

Press 9 to exit the Index Picture Screen, then press 2.

A DVD+RW disc does not play on a certain DVD player

There are DVD Players that will not play recordings made with a DVD Recorder. With a special procedure the recorder will solve this problem for some players. Proceed as follows:

1. Put the disc in the drawer (do not close the tray). 2. Press and hold the 2 key on the remote control for several seconds until

the tray closes. The disc is now modied. 3. If the change has no effect, you may perform the same procedure with the

3 key on the remote control.

Note: Modifying the disc can solve the problem for a specic player model, but playback in other DVD players may no longer be possible. It is therefore recommended to use this procedure carefully and only when needed.

To revert the disc to the original state, follow the same procedure with the 1 key on the remote control.

Note: To achieve maximum compatibility, make sure the disc contains at least 5 minutes recorded in HQ mode, 12 minutes in SP+, 20 minutes in EP or 30 minutes in EP+ mode. For more information about compatibility with DVD players refer to Troubleshooting in the instructions for Use.

You can operate the Diagnosis Program by following these instructions step by step.

Instructions

1 Unplug the power cord of the Recorder. 2 Press and hold the 2 while you reconnect the power

cord of the Recorder. On the display, BUSY appears with a counter number. Release the 2. After a few minutes, the message changes from BUSY to FAIL or PASS.

3 If FAIL appears on the display, there is apparently a fail- ure in your Recorder. Your Recorder should be repaired. Consult your authorized YAMAHA dealer or Service Center for assistance.

4 If PASS appears on the display, there is apparently no failure in your Recorder. In this case, the failure can be caused by incorrect interpretation of the operating instructions, a wrong disc in use, or incorrect connec- tions. Consult your authorized YAMAHA dealer or Service Center for assistance.

5 Unplug the power cord, then reconnect it to a power source and use the DVD Recorder again as usual.

DVD Recorder system notes

DVD+RW and DVD+R discs recorded on your DVD recorder can be played on most DVD players and DVD- ROM drives, with the following issues: - The time search function will not be available. - The screen will display twice as many titles as there are on the disc. This is due to the DVD+RW Video Format Specications and the DVD+R Video Format Specications. It is not a malfunction.

A DVD+RW/+R disc may not play on certain DVD Video players.

A DVD+RW/+R disc recorded on a different type or brand of Recorder can play, but may not provide all features commonly available to it, such as the on-screen disc bar, the disc settings menu, the title settings menu, and editing. Refer to Adapt disc format. If the disc is erase-protected, the status cannot be changed.

When using manual recording, the DVD Recorder will advise you before adapting the format of the disc or removing non-video data (See Before you start recording). When using timer recording, however, the DVD Recorder will always start to record, unless the disc is write-protected. Menus, edits and other data recorded on a different device (e.g. a PC) may be lost.

Because of the Variable Bit Rate, a title map takes up less or more space than the overwritten title, even though the duration is the same. As a result, part of the original title may remain, or part of the next title may be lost. The maximum deviation is ve minutes.

When you connect a remote control to the IN RC6 Remote Control Input on the back of the Recorder, the rst signals from the remote control may be lost.

After a power interruption during recording, the Index Picture Screen may not match the actual video content on the disc. The last recorded title may be lost.
