VIDEO input jack on the front panel using an RCA
Video cable.
Change the setup when using S-VIDEO input jack.
(See page 31.)
Digital audio for better sound quality
The connections illustrated above are
optional for better sound.
1 For clear digital sound quality, use
the DIGITAL AUDIO OUTPUT PCM/
BITSTREAM (COAXIAL) jack to
connect your digital audio
equipment.
If the audio format of the digital output does not
match the capabilities of your receiver, the
receiver will produce a strong, distorted sound or
no sound at all.
Connecting a Dolby Digital™ decoder, DTS
decoder or MPEG decoder
• Connecting multi-channel Dolby Digital decoder
allows you to enjoy the 5.1ch Dolby Digital surround
system as well as DTS decoder, 5.1 channel
surround system.
• After connecting to a Dolby Digital decoder, set
“Dolby Digital” to “Stream” in the AUDIO menu. (See
page 58.)
• After connecting to a DTS decoder, set “DTS” to
“ON” in the AUDIO menu. (See page 58.)
• After connecting to a MPEG decoder, set “MPEG” to
“Stream” in the AUDIO menu. (See page 58.)
Connecting to an MD deck or DAT deck
• The audio source recorded in Dolby Digital 5.1
channel surround format cannot be recorded using
an MD or DAT deck as a digital sound.
• If not connected to a Dolby Digital decoder, set
“Dolby Digital” to “PCM” in the AUDIO menu.
Playing back a DVD using incorrect settings may
generate noise distortion, and damage speakers.
• Set “Dolby Digital,” and “MPEG” to “PCM” and set
“DTS” to “OFF” in the AUDIO menu for connecting
to an MD or DAT deck.
• You can use ANALOG AUDIO OUT jacks for the
connection of your audio system.
After you have completed
connections
Switch the input selector on your TV to an appropriate
external input channel. For details, refer to the
Instruction Manual of your TV.
Note
• Connect this unit directly to the TV. If the Audio/

Information on DVD recording
Type of discs
This unit can record on DVD-R and DVD-RW. You
can record on DVD-R only once. On DVD-RW, you
can record and erase many times.
It is possible to record on DVD-R only in Video mode.
DVD-RW can record in the format you select from
Video mode or VR mode.
If you want to record repeatedly on the same disc, or
if you want to edit the disc after recording, use a
rewritable DVD-RW type disc.
If you want to save recordings without any alteration,
use a non-rewritable DVD-R type disc.
• Discs that should be used with this recorder:
DVD-R: 4x or 8x
DVD-RW: 2x or 4x
• Discs that were tested and proven as compatible
with this recorder:
Maxell DVD-R
TDK DVD-RW 2x
MITSUBISHI DVD-R 8x
JVC DVD-RW 4x
Video mode and VR (Video Recording) mode
Video mode is the same recording format as used on
the pre-recorded DVD-Videos you purchase in local
shops, so you can play back the discs recorded in this
format in most DVD players. You will need to finalise
such discs (see page 32) before playing them back in
other DVD players. Unless finalised, you can record
additional materials or edit discs recorded in Video
mode with this unit.
VR (Video Recording) mode is a basic recording
format for DVD-RW discs. You can record and edit
material repeatedly. It is impossible to record
additional materials on a disc formatted in VR mode
and already recorded in another video system other
than PAL, such as NTSC.
Recording speed
You can select a recording speed from 6 options.
The recording time will vary depending on the
recording speed you select as follows.
• This table is intended for a standard new single-
sided 12 cm disc. The recording times are estimates
and actual recording time may differ.
• The audio and video quality becomes poorer as the
recording time gets longer.
Restrictions on recording
You cannot record copy-protected video using this
unit. Copy-protected video includes DVD-Videos and
some satellite broadcasts.
If copy-protected material is detected, recording will
pause or stop automatically and an error message
appears on the screen.
You can only record “copy-once only” video using a
DVD-RW disc in VR mode with Content Protection for
Recordable Media (CPRM).
When recording a TV broadcast or an external input,
you can display copy control information on the
screen.
CPRM is a scrambling copy protection system for the
protection of “copy-once” broadcast programmes.
This unit is CPRM compatible, which means that you
can record copy-once broadcast programmes, but
you cannot then make a copy of those recordings.
CPRM recordings can only be played back on DVD
players that are specifically compatible with CPRM.

Information on copy control
Some satellite broadcasts include copy-protected
information. If you wish to record them, refer to the
following.
Note
• This unit cannot record on CD-RW or CD-R discs.
• DVD-RW / R and CD-RW / R discs recorded on a
personal computer or a DVD or CD recorder may
not be played back if the disc is damaged or dirty or
if there is condensation on the player’s lens.
• If you record a disc using a personal computer, even
if it is recorded in a compatible format, it may not be
played back because of the settings of the
application software used to create the disc. (Check
with the software publisher for more detailed
information.)
• Discs recorded in Video mode on this unit cannot
record additional information using other DVD
recorders.
• It is not possible to use a disc formatted in Video
mode with this unit on other DVD recorders. If you
use the disc on other DVD recorders, reformat the
disc using that DVD recorder.
• Since recording is performed using the Variable Bit
Rate (VBR) method, the actual remaining time for
recording may be a little shorter than the remaining
time displayed on the OSD, depending on the
picture you are recording.
Making discs playable in other DVD
players (Finalise)
After recording, you must finalise the disc to play it
back in other players. (See page 32.)
You cannot finalise discs in other DVD recorders.
After finalising
• After DVD-R discs are finalised:
- A title menu is created automatically.
- Undo finalising is not possible.
- Additional recording or editing is not possible.
• After DVD-RW (Video mode) discs are finalised:
- A title menu is created automatically.
- Undo finalising is possible. (See page 32.)
- Additional recording or editing is possible if you

Hints for timer recording
• If there is a power failure or the unit is unplugged for
more than 30 seconds, the clock setting and all
timer settings will be lost.
• If there is no disc or an unrecordable disc in the tray,
the icon will flash and timer recording will not
occur. Insert a recordable disc.
• When all timer recordings are complete, the
icon flashes. To play back or eject the recorded disc,
press [STANDBY/ON y/I], and then press
[PLAY P] or [OPEN/CLOSE O].
• During timer recording or timer-standby mode (
icon appears on the front panel display), no
operations on the unit are available. To make
operations available, cancel the timer recording or
timer-standby mode ( icon disappears).
• To cancel the timer-standby mode, press
[STANDBY/ON y/I].
• If the Start and End times are same, the length of
the recording will be set for 24 hours. If the disc
becomes full during recording, the unit will turn itself
off.
• If two or more programmes overlap, “Overlap” and
the overlapped programme number will appear on
the display.
• If the Start time is earlier and the End time is later
than the current time, the recording will start
immediately after you turn the power off.
Priority of overlapped settings
The unit records programmes according to priority if
timer programmes overlap.
If the starting time is same:
• The timer programming set first (PROG. 1) has
priority.
If programming has been made at the end of the
programming (PROG. 1) currently being recorded:
• The timer programming set first (PROG. 2) has
priority. PROG. 3 will not be recorded.
If the recording time is partially overlapped:
• The timer programming with the earlier start time
(PROG. 2) has priority. PROG. 1 will start after
PROG. 2 recording is complete.
If the recording time entirely overlaps:
• The shorter timer programming (PROG. 1) is not
recorded.
Note for DVD recording
• If the recording time of two programmes overlap, or
the End time of a programme and the Start time of
another is same, the first 30 seconds (at the most)
of the subsequent programme are cut off.
If the End time of the programme currently being
recorded and the Start time of the subsequent
programme are same:
• If PROG. 1 is a DVD recorded programme, the
beginning of PROG. 2 may be cut off.
* If the cut off time exceeds 1 minute, the error
number “E40” will appear in the timer programming
list.
