RQT9430
The HDD is a high precision recording instrument and because of its long recording capability and high speed operation it is a very special
device that is easily susceptible to damage.
As a basic rule, save important content to a disc as backup.
■ The HDD is a device that is not built to withstand vibration/shock or dust
Depending on the setup environment and handling of the HDD some content may become damaged and play and recording may no longer be
possible. Especially during operation, do not subject the unit to any vibration, shock, or remove the AC mains lead from the household mains
socket. In the event of a power failure during recording or play, the content may be damaged.
■ The HDD is a temporary storage device
The HDD is not an everlasting storage device for recorded content. Use the HDD as a temporary storage place for one-off viewing, editing, or
copying. It is recommended to save the recorded content on a disc or to keep the original data or CDs that they were copied from.
■ Immediately save (backup) all content as soon as you feel there may be a problem with the HDD
If there is an irregularity within the HDD, repetitive strange sounds or problems with picture (block noise, etc.) may result. Using the HDD in this
condition may worsen the problem and in the worst case the HDD may no longer be usable. As soon as you notice this type of problem, copy all
content to disc and request service. Recorded content (data) on an HDD that has become unusable is unrecoverable.
When the unit is turned on or off, there may be an unexpected sound. This does not indicate a problem with this unit.
■ Setup precautions
Do not place in an enclosed area where the rear cooling fan
and the cooling vents on the side are covered up.
Place the unit on a surface that is flat and not subject to
vibration or impact.
Do not place on anything that generates
much heat, for example an audio
amplifier.
Do not place in an area often subject to
temperature changes.
Place in an area where condensation does
not occur. Condensation is a phenomenon
where moisture forms on a cold surface
when there is an extreme change in
temperature. Condensation may cause internal damage to the unit.
Conditions where condensation may occur
– When there is an extreme change in temperature (moving from a
very hot location to a very cold location, or vice versa, or when
subjected to an air conditioner or when cooled air directly impacts
the unit). When the HDD (warms during operation) is subjected to
cold air, condensation may form on the inside of the HDD and
may cause damage to the HDD heads, etc.
– When there is high humidity or a lot of steam in the room.
– During the rainy season.
In the above situation, without turning the unit on, let the unit
adjust to the room temperature and wait 2–3 hours until
condensation is gone.
■ Cigarette smoke etc. causes malfunction or
breakdown
The unit may breakdown if cigarette smoke or bug spray/vapor, etc.
gets inside the unit.
■ While operating
Do not move the unit or subject to vibration or impact. (The HDD
may become damaged.)
Do not remove the AC mains lead from the household mains
socket, or flip the power breaker switch.
While the unit is on, the HDD is rotating at high speed. Sound or
movement due to rotation is normal.
■ When moving the unit
1 Turn the unit off. (Wait until “BYE” disappears from the display.)
2 Remove the AC mains lead from the household mains socket.
3 Move only after the unit has come to a complete stop (approx. 2
minutes) in order to avoid subjecting to vibration and shock.
(Even after turning the unit off, the HDD continues operating for a
short time.)
DO NOT
This unit
Amplifier
■ Indemnity concerning recorded content
Panasonic does not accept any responsibility for damages directly or indirectly due to any type of problems that result in loss of recording or
edited content (data), and does not guarantee any content if recording or editing does not work properly. Likewise, the above also applies in a
case where any type of repair is made to the unit (including any other non-HDD related component).

image resolution than true, native 1080p full-HD sources. See dealer for details.
Notes
The freesat channel uses Astra 2 at 28.2° East, and Eurobird 1 at 28.5° East satellites. To ensure your satellite
dish is correctly installed please consult your freesat registered dealer.
If you connect 2 satellite dishes for different satellites (e.g., DISH IN 1: Astra 28.2, DISH IN 2: Astra 19.2), the unit
cannot receive the signal correctly.
You can use the unit as one tuner when connecting DISH IN 1 to a satellite dish that can receive SKY.
If connecting to equipment that is only compatible with 2 channel audio output, audio with 3 channels or more will
be down-mixed (➔ 138) and output as 2 channels, even if connecting with an HDMI cable (some discs cannot be
down-mixed).
For display units compatible with HDCP (High-Band width Digital Content Protection) that are equipped with a
digital DVI input terminal (PC monitors, etc.):
Depending on the unit, picture may not display properly or at all when connecting with a DVI/HDMI switching cable
(audio cannot be output).
If you connect a DVI device that is not compatible with HDCP, set “HDCP on HDMI Output” in the Setup menu to
“Off” (➔ 105).
Tips
You can check the satellite signal condition using “Signal Condition” in the Setup menu (➔ 98).
When the unit is not to be used for a long time
To save power, unplug it from the household mains socket. This unit consumes a small amount of power,
even when it is turned in standby.

Timer Recording Using the TV Guide (freesat) HDD
Various function with freesat
This unit has a function that enables timer recordings to be controlled by the signal sent from
the broadcaster. “Guide Link”, “Series recording” (➔ 40), and “Split Programme” are available.
“Guide Link” — If you set a timer recording from the TV Guide, the recording’s
start and stop times can be controlled by the broadcaster, e.g. delayed start.
This is indicated by “Guide Link” in the Timer Recording screen in step
(➔ 29).
“Series Timer Recording” — You can record all the episodes of a series by setting just
one timer recording (➔ 40).
“Split Programme” — If a programme is separated into 2 or more parts by some other
programmes e.g. news, this unit pauses recording during the gap.
This is indicated by “Split” in the Timer Recording screen in step (➔ 29).
When setting timer from the 1st split programme, other parts of the programme will be automatically
set and indicated by the timer icon on the TV Guide, but not shown on the timer recording list.
If the signal is not sent correctly, the recording may lack the beginning or the
ending part of the programmes.
In order to make the timer recording work successfully, we recommend you
set the start time earlier and the end time later by some minutes, up to a
maximum of 10 minutes for Guide Link to function.
e.g. When you set the timer recording for a programme that will start at 10:00
and end at 11:00, set “9:58” and “11:05” in step (➔ 29).
These functions are available for freesat channels only. Use “Manual timer
recording” (➔ 39) to timer record Other Sat. channels.
This operation will only record to HDD in DR mode.
Preparation:
Turn on the television and select the video input terminal that this unit is
connected to.
Turn on this unit.
Confirm that the clock on the unit’s display is set to the correct time.

When “Recording time in EP mode” is set to “6 hours” in the Setup menu (➔ 101). The sound quality is better when using “6 hours” than when using “8 hours”.
RAM When recording to DVD-RAM using “8 hours” mode, play may not be possible on DVD players that are compatible with DVD-RAM. Use
“6 hours” mode if playback may be on other equipment.
BD-RE BD-R The recording time may be longer than the values indicated above, if you copy the titles recorded from radio service.
Due to peculiarities of BD-RE and BD-R, you may be unable to copy to them even if disc space is remained.
■ Regarding recording time remaining
DR mode recording
Remaining time in the DR mode is calculated with a bit rate of approx. 14 Mbps. But the bit rate differs depending on the broadcast, so the
displayed remaining time might be different from the actual remaining time.
Other recording modes (title conversion or from external input)
This unit records using a VBR (Variable bit rate) data compression system to vary recorded data segments to match video data segments which
may cause differences in the displayed amount of time and space remaining for recording.
If the remaining amount of time is insufficient, delete any unwanted titles to create enough space before you start recording.
2 programmes simultaneous recording
It is possible to record 2 programmes simultaneously, if both DISH IN 1 and DISH IN 2 terminals are connected to the satellite dish (➔ 10, Basic Connection).
