On the right hand side of the screen you can also see a disc indicator that shows the posi- tion and length of the current recording on the disc in a graphic format. You can choose and make your own index pictures from the title in playback.

EDIT DVD makes it so easy to delete titles, split titles, insert chapters automatically and manual, and do many more things. It enables you to simply delete commercials and unwanted scenes.

Many Playable Disc Types The following types of disc are supported: DVD-Video, DVD-R, DVD-RW, CD, SVCD, VCD, CD-R, and CD-RW.

Your DVD recorder can play back pre-recorded DVDs and CDs. DVDs recorded using this DVD recorder can be played back on current and future DVD players.

MP3-CD PLAYBACK MP3 les are highly compressed music les. The data is compressed to 1/10 of the vol- ume of the original audio material using a special process. This means that 10 hours of music can be stored on a single CD. These music CDs can be played on this machine.

ID3 Tag When playing MP3, your DVD recorder will display on TV the name of the albums, tracks, and artists if ID3 Tag information is recorded on the disc.

This connector is also known as a FireWire or IEEE 1394. This connector is used to transmit wide digital broadband signals that are used for digital video camcorders. Using this connector, you can so easily capture and save video onto DVD from your digital video camera.

What is a DVD? DVD (Digital Versatile Disc) is a new storage medium that combines the convenience of the compact disc with the latest digital video technology. DVD video uses modern MPEG2 data compression technology that enables an entire feature lm to be stored on a single ve inch disc.

How good is the resolution of DVD compared with VHS? The razor-sharp digital images have a resolution of more than 500 lines of 720 pixels per line. This is more than twice as high as VHS and is even better than the laser disc. Its picture quality is easily comparable to the digital masters produced in recording studios.

What can DVD+RW do? DVD+ReWritable uses phase change media, the same technology on which rewritable CDs are based. A high-performance laser is used to change the reective properties of the recording layer; this process can be repeated more than a thousand times.

What can the DVD+R do? DVD+R (write-once DVD). Unlike a DVD+RW disc, this disc can only be written once. If it is not nalized after a recording, further recordings can be added to it. Old record- ings can be deleted but can no longer be overwritten. The deleted titles are marked Deleted title. Before this disc can be played in a DVD player, it must be nalised in the DVD recorder. Once this process is complete, no further recordings can be added.

What can my DVD recorder do? Your DVD recorder is a machine for recording and playing back digital video discs with two-way compatibility with the universal DVD video standard. This means: ) existing DVD video discs can be played on the recorder. ) Recordings made on your DVD recorder can be played on other DVD video players

and DVD ROM drives.

Because DVD lms are usually not released at the same time in all regions of the world, all DVD players are keyed to a specic region code. Discs can be assigned an optional region code. If the region codes of the player and disc do not coincide, playback is not possible.

This device will only play Region 1 DVDs or DVDs manufactured to be played in all regions (ALL). DVDs from other regions cannot be played in this DVD Recorder. The number within the globe represents the region of the world. Region 1 represents: U.S, Canada, upper regions of North America, Bermuda, U.S. Virgin Islands and smaller regions near Australia.

Some malfunctions (frozen or distorted picture and broken sound for example) are due to dirt on the disc. To avoid such problems you should clean your discs regularly.

1 Dirty discs should be cleaned with a soft cloth. Always wipe from the middle to the edge.

2 Do not use any solvents such as benzine, thinners, commercially available cleaning agents or antistatic sprays designed for vinyl records.

Cleaning the discs

Question

Can I use a CD lens cleaner in the DVD recorder? This optical unit (laser) of the DVD recorder operates at a higher power level than the ones in normal DVDs and CD players so CD lens cleaner discs may actually damage it. CD lens cleaner discs should therefore not be used.

You can connect a VCR to the DVD recorders IN-EXT 2 and OUT 2 sockets.

If you have an S-VHS VCR, you could connect the DVD recorders S-VIDEO output to an S-Video input on the VCR, and connect the DVD recorders AUDIO L/R outputs to analog audio inputs on the VCR.

You can transfer your home movies to DVD by connecting your camcorder to the AV sockets on the DVD recorders front panel, as shown.

Best picture quality If you have a DV or Digital 8 camcorder, using its i-link cable (7), connect the cam- corders i-link DV output to the DVD recorders DV input.

During the transfer, the original recording dates and times of your home movies will be recorded on the DVD as subtitles. During DVD playback, you can view this information by using the Subtitle function.

Very good picture quality If you have a Hi-8 or S-VHS-C camcorder, using an S-Video cable (5), connect the cam- corders S-Video output to the DVD recorders S VIDEO input. And, using an AUDIO L/R cable (4), connect the camcorders analog audio outputs to the DVD recorders AUDIO L/R inputs.

Good picture quality If your camcorder only has a composite video output, using a composite video cable, connect the camcorders composite video output to the DVD recorders VIDEO input. And, using an AUDIO L/R cable (4), connect the camcorders analog audio outputs to the DVD recorders AUDIO L/R inputs.

Connecting a VCR

Notes

Most prerecorded video cassettes and DVDs are copy protected. If you try to copy them, the message COPY PROT will appear on the DVD recorders display.

If the DVD recorder displays the message NO SIGNAL when copying a video cassette: Check that the cables are connected securely. Try adjusting the VCRs tracking function. The DVD recorder may not recognize the video signal if its weak or does not

conform to normal video standards.

When copying DVD-Video discs or prerecorded video cassettes, the pic- ture is fuzzy and the brightness changes continuously? This happens when you copy a DVD or video cassette that uses copy protection.

Playback of the original is OK, but the DVD+R(W) recording will be unwatch- able. This is normal with copy-protected DVDs and video cassettes.

To enjoy surround sound (Dolby Digital, DTS, MPEG-2), you need to connect one of the DVD recorders digital audio outputs to a multichannel AV amp with an appropriate surround-sound decoder built-in.

Your DVD recorder has both coaxial and optical digital audio outputs. The format you choose will most likely depend on the formats supported by your AV amp. You dont need to connect both cables, and their sound quality is identical.

1 Connect a coaxial (12) or optical (13) digital audio cable from the DVD recorders COAX OUT or OPTICAL OUT to a coaxial or optical digital audio input on the AV receiver.

You can use a composite video cable instead of a dedicated coaxial digital audio cable.

Surround sound connections

Note

An unpleasant digital noise may be heard if you select a DVD soundtrack that uses an audio format that is not supported by your AV amp. For example, you select a DTS soundtrack and your AV amp does not support DTS. The format of the cur- rently selected soundtrack can be displayed onscreen in the menu bar. Six-channel (5.1) surround-sound playback is only possible with a multichannel AV amp that sup- ports Dolby Digital, DTS, or MPEG-2.

10. Programming a recording (TIMER)

53

Use Programming a recording (TIMER), to automatically start and stop a recording at a later date.

The DVD recorder will switch to the right programme number and begin recording at the correct time.

With this DVD recorder, you can pre-programme up to six recordings within a period of one month.

To make a programmed recording, your DVD recorder needs to know: * the date you want to make the recording * the programme number of the TV channel * the start and stop time of the recording * the recording mode (M1/M2/M2x/M3/M4/M6/FR)

This information is saved in a TIMER block. Before you begin, make sure the clock is set. If the clock is not set, the Time/Date menu will appear when you press the TIMER button.

General

Question

What is FR mode? FR mode is used when you want to record a certain length of program but you dont know how much room remaining on the recording disc. By using this mode, this unit automatically selects the best suitable recording mode for the length of the program. You cannot select FR mode, when you set the recording timer of Mo-Fr/ Weekly, and when you set PDC/VPS on. We strongly recommend that you do not use this function combined with VPS/PDC. In such a condition this DVD recorder may not perform the task properly.
