CAUTION
The STANDBY/ON switch on this unit will not
completely shut off all power from the AC outlet.
Since the power cord serves as the main disconnect
device for the unit, you will need to unplug it from
the AC outlet to shut down all power. Therefore,
make sure the unit has been installed so that the
power cord can be easily unplugged from the AC
outlet in case of an accident. To avoid fire hazard,
the power cord should also be unplugged from the
AC outlet when left unused for a long period of time
(for example, when on vacation). D3-4-2-2-2a_A_En
Operating Environment
Operating environment temperature and humidity:
+5 ºC to +35 ºC (+41 ºF to +95 ºF); less than 85 %RH

locations exposed to high humidity or direct sunlight (or
strong artificial light) D3-4-2-1-7c_A_En
VENTILATION CAUTION
When installing this unit, make sure to leave space
around the unit for ventilation to improve heat
radiation (at least 10 cm at top, 10 cm at rear, and
10 cm at each side).
WARNING
Slots and openings in the cabinet are provided for
ventilation to ensure reliable operation of the
product, and to protect it from overheating. To
prevent fire hazard, the openings should never be
blocked or covered with items (such as newspapers,
table-cloths, curtains) or by operating the
equipment on thick carpet or a bed. D3-4-2-1-7b_A_En
If the AC plug of this unit does not match the AC
outlet you want to use, the plug must be removed
and appropriate one fitted. Replacement and
mounting of an AC plug on the power supply cord of
this unit should be performed only by qualified
service personnel. If connected to an AC outlet, the
cut-off plug can cause severe electrical shock. Make
sure it is properly disposed of after removal.
The equipment should be disconnected by removing
the mains plug from the wall socket when left
unused for a long period of time (for example, when
on vacation). D3-4-2-2-1a_A_En
This product is for general household purposes. Any
failure due to use for other than household purposes
(such as long-term use for business purposes in a
restaurant or use in a car or ship) and which
requires repair will be charged for even during the
warranty period. K041_En
POWER-CORD CAUTION
Handle the power cord by the plug. Do not pull out the
plug by tugging the cord and never touch the power
cord when your hands are wet as this could cause a
short circuit or electric shock. Do not place the unit, a
piece of furniture, etc., on the power cord, or pinch the
cord. Never make a knot in the cord or tie it with other
cords. The power cords should be routed such that they
are not likely to be stepped on. A damaged power cord
can cause a fire or give you an electrical shock. Check
the power cord once in a while. When you find it
damaged, ask your nearest PIONEER authorized
service center or your dealer for a replacement. S002_En
Replacement and mounting of an AC plug on the power supply cord of this unit should be performed only by qualified
service personnel.
D3-4-2-1-2-2_B_En
IMPORTANT: THE MOULDED PLUG
This appliance is supplied with a moulded three pin mains plug for your safety and convenience. A 5 amp fuse is fitted in this plug. Should the
fuse need to be replaced, please ensure that the replacement fuse has a rating of 5 amps and that it is approved by ASTA or BSI to BS1362.
Check for the ASTA mark or the BSI mark on the body of the fuse.
If the plug contains a removable fuse cover, you must ensure that it is refitted when the fuse is replaced. If you lose the fuse cover the plug
must not be used until a replacement cover is obtained. A replacement fuse cover can be obtained from your local dealer.
If the fitted moulded plug is unsuitable for your socket outlet, then the fuse shall be removed and the plug cut off and disposed of
safely. There is a danger of severe electrical shock if the cut off plug is inserted into any 13 amp socket.
If a new plug is to be fitted, please observe the wiring code as shown below. If in any doubt, please consult a qualified electrician.
IMPORTANT: The wires in this mains lead are coloured in accordance with the following code:
Blue : Neutral Brown : Live
As the colours of the wires in the mains lead of this appliance may not correspond with the coloured markings identifying the terminals in
your plug, proceed as follows ;
The wire which is coloured BLUE must be connected to the terminal which is marked with the
letter N or coloured BLACK.
The wire which is coloured BROWN must be connected to the terminal which is marked with the
letter L or coloured RED.
How to replace the fuse: Open the fuse compartment with a screwdriver and replace the fuse.

About DualDisc playback
A DualDisc is a new two -sided disc, one side
of which contains DVD content – video,
audio, etc. – while the other side contains
non-DVD content such as digital audio
material.
The non-DVD, audio side of the disc is not
compliant with the CD audio specification
and therefore may not play.
It is possible that when loading or ejecting a
DualDisc, the opposite side to that being
played will be scratched. Scratched discs
may not be playable.
The DVD side of a DualDisc plays in this
product. DVD-Audio content will not play.
For more detailed information on the
DualDisc specification, please refer to the
disc manufacturer or disc retailer.

Some DivX VOD content may only be
playable a fixed number of times. When you
load a disc containing this type of DivX VOD
content, the remaining number of plays is
shown on-screen and you then have the
option of playing the disc (thereby using up
one of the remaining plays), or stopping. If
you load a disc that contains expired DivX
VOD content (for example, content that has
zero remaining plays), the message Rental
Expired is displayed.
If your DivX VOD content allows an unlimited
number of plays, then you may load the disc
into your recorder and play the content as
often as you like, and no message will be
displayed.
Important
• DivX VOD content is protected by a DRM
system. This restricts playback of
content to specific, registered devices.
• If you load a disc that contains DivX VOD
content not authorized for this recorder,
the message Authorization Error is
displayed and the content will not play.
• Resetting the recorder (as described in
Resetting the recorder on page 160) will
not cause you to lose your registration
code.

About the internal hard disk
drive
The internal hard disk drive (HDD) is a fragile
piece of equipment. When used without the
proper care or in the wrong conditions, it is
possible that recorded contents may be
damaged or lost entirely, in some cases
making even normal playback or recording
impossible. Please understand that in the
event of repair or replacement of the HDD or
related components, all your HDD
recordings will be lost.
Please use the recorder following the
guidelines below to protect against possible
HDD failure.
The HDD should not be regarded as a place to
store recordings permanently. We
recommend that you back up your important
recordings onto DVD discs in order to protect
against accidental loss.
Pioneer cannot under any circumstances
accept responsibility for any direct or indirect
loss arising from any inconvenience or loss of
recorded material resulting from HDD failure.
• Do not move the recorder while it is on
(this includes during EPG download
when the display shows EPG).
• Install and use the recorder on a stable,
level surface.
• Do not block the rear vent/cooling fan.
• Do not use the recorder in excessively
hot or humid places, or in places that
may be subject to sudden changes in
temperature. Sudden changes in
temperature can cause condensation to
form inside the recorder. This can be a
cause of HDD failure.
• While the recorder is switched on
(including during EPG download when
the display shows EPG), do not unplug
from the wall socket or switch the
electricity off from the breaker switch.
• Do not move the recorder immediately
after switching it off. If you need to move
the recorder, please follow the steps
below:
1 After the message POWER OFF is
shown on the front panel display, wait at
least two minutes.
2 Unplug from the wall socket.
3 Move the recorder.
• If there’s a power failure while the
recorder is on there is a chance that
some data on the HDD will be lost.
• The HDD is very delicate. If used over
time in an improper manner or in an
unsuitable environment, it is possible
that the HDD will fail. Signs of problems
include playback unexpectedly freezing
and noticeable block noise (mosaic) in
the picture. However, sometimes there
will be no warning signs of HDD failure.
If the HDD fails, no playback of recorded
material will be possible. In this case it
will be necessary to replace the HDD
unit.
Optimizing HDD performance
As you record and edit material on the HDD,
the data on the disk becomes fragmented,
eventually affecting the recorder’s
performance. Before this happens, the
recorder will warn you that it is time to
optimize the HDD (which you can do from
the Disc Setup menu; see Optimize HDD on
page 125).

Connecting using HDMI
If you have an HDMI or DVI-equipped1
monitor or display2
, you can connect it to
this recorder using an HDMI cable3 (not
supplied).
The HDMI connector outputs uncompressed
digital video, as well as almost every kind of
digital audio.
1 Use an HDMI cable to connect the
HDMI OUT connector on this recorder to
an HDMI connector on an HDMI-
compatible display.
• The arrow on the cable connector body
should be face down for correct
alignment with the connector on the
recorder.
When connected to an HDMI component or
HDCP-compatible DVI component, the
HDMI indicator lights.
HDMI setup is generally automatic. There
are however settings you can change if you
need to. See HDMI Output (only available
when an HDMI device is connected) on
page 140 for more information. Note that the
HDMI settings remain in effect until you
change them, or connect a new HDMI
component.
Important
• An HDMI connection can only be made
with DVI-equipped components
compatible with both DVI and High-
bandwidth Digital Content Protection
(HDCP). If you choose to connect to a
DVI connector, you will need a DVI to
HDMI adaptor cable. A DVI to HDCP
connection, however, does not support
audio. Consult your local audio dealer for
more information.
• The HDMI connection is compatible with
32 kHz, 44.1 kHz, 48 kHz, 96 kHz, 16 bit/
20 bit/24 bit 2-channel linear PCM
signals, as well as Dolby Digital, DTS and
MPEG audio bitstream.
• If your connected component is only
compatible with Linear PCM, the signal
is output as Linear PCM (DTS audio is
not output).
• If you have connected to a Pioneer
plasma display, please select the HDMI
setup on the display (refer to the
supplied manual for more on this).
About HDMI
HDMI (High-Definition Multimedia
Interface) supports both video and audio on
a single digital connection for use with DVD
players and recorders, DTV, set-top boxes,
and other AV devices. HDMI was developed
to provide the technologies of High-
bandwidth Digital Content Protection
(HDCP) as well as Digital Visual Interface
(DVI) in one specification. HDCP is used to
protect digital content transmitted and
received by DVI-compliant displays.
HDMI has the capability to support
standard, enhanced, or high-definition video
Note
1 Depending on the component you have connected, using a DVI connection may result in unreliable signal
transfers.
2 The pixel resolution of this recorder’s HDMI video output is (according to TV format): NTSC (720 x 480i/p,
1280 x 720p, 1920 x 1080i/p) and PAL (720 x 576i/p, 1280 x 720p, 1920 x 1080i/p). If your display is not compatible
with these resolutions the picture may not be correctly reproduced.
3 We recommend you use an HDMI cable that supports HDMI category 2.

Getting started
Switching on and setting up
When you switch the recorder on for the first
time, you can make several basic settings
using the Setup Navigator feature. This takes
you through setting the clock, the internal TV

If you’re using the recorder for the first time,
we strongly recommend you use the Setup
Navigator before starting to use the
recorder.
1 Switch on your TV and set the video
input to this recorder.
2 Switch on the recorder.
When you switch on for the first time, your TV
should display the Setup Navigator screen (If
the Setup Navigator doesn’t appear, you can
also access it from the Initial Setup menu;
see page 130).
• If this recorder is connected to a
compatible TV using a fully-wired 21-pin
SCART cable, the recorder will take a few
seconds to download country, TV screen
size and language information. (Check
the manual that came with your TV for
compatibility information.)
3 Choose a language (then press
ENTER).
4 Start the Setup Navigator.
• If you don’t want to use the Setup
Navigator, press  to select Cancel,
then press ENTER to exit the Setup
Navigator.
5 Select an Aerial Power setting1
for the built-in digital tuner.

• Off: power is never supplied to the
aerial.
6 Select ‘Auto Scan’ to start
scanning for D.TV channels.
• Select Do not set if you want to skip
D.TV channel setup (because they have
already been set up, for example), then
skip to step 8 below.
7 Select your country.
The recorder starts scanning for new
channels. After the scan is complete the
recorder will let you know how many new
channels were found.
• The country setting will apply to both the
digital and analog TV tuners.
• The clock will also be set automatically
here if D.TV channels are found.

Setting up the GUIDE Plus+®
system
This section is only applicable if you chose to
use the GUIDE Plus+ system as the EPG type
in step 10 of the Setup Navigator above.
The GUIDE Plus+®
system is a free,
interactive on-screen television
programming guide. The system offers
programme listings for all major channels,
one-touch recording, search by genre,
recommendations according to your profile
and more.
For the GUIDE Plus+ system to function
correctly, it is important that you set the
language and country correctly in the Setup
Navigator, and that you have performed a
scan for available channels, as these are all
used by the GUIDE Plus+ system. If any of
these things are not yet set, please run the
Setup Navigator first (see Switching on and
setting up on page 31).
TV listings information is received via ‘Host
Channels’. In order to receive the correct TV
listings information for your country or
region you need to set up the GUIDE Plus+
system and ‘download’ the TV listings
information. The initial download can take
up to 24 hours, but once this is done, all
future updates are automatic.

1 Display the GUIDE Plus+ setup
menu.
The language and country settings are
already set to whatever you selected in the
Setup Navigator.
2 Highlight ‘Postal Code’.
3 Enter your postal code.
The system uses your postal code to identify
which TV listings data is correct for the area
in which you live, so it is important that you
enter it correctly.
4 If you are using an external receiver
(such as a satellite receiver) with the
supplied G-LINK cable, complete this
step, otherwise jump to step 5 below.
• See Connecting to a cable box or satellite
receiver on page 17 for more on using the
supplied G-LINK cable.
• Select External Receiver 1, 2 or 3, then
press ENTER. (If you have just one
external receiver, use External
Receiver 1. You can add further
receivers in 2 and 3 if you need to.)
After pressing ENTER:
• Select your reception method
(Terrestrial, Cable or Satellite).
• Select your provider (if applicable).
• Select the brand of your external
receiver.
• Identify which input your external
receiver is connected to.
After completing these steps the recorder
will try and communicate with your external
receiver and change the channel via the
G-LINK cable. If the channel was
successfully changed, select Yes to confirm.
If the channel did not change, select No. The
GUIDE Plus+ system will try other codes
assigned to your external receiver. If none of
the codes changes the channel
successfully, tune your external receiver to
the Host Channel for your country (refer to

step 5 below) and leave it on overnight. The
recorder needs to be in standby; it will wake
up automatically and download new codes
from the Host Channel. The next day, try this
setup process again:
• Press GUIDE to display the GUIDE
Plus+ screen.
• Press  to highlight the Menu bar, then
use  to reach the Setup area and
select Setup.
• Continue setting up from the start of this
step again.
If your external receiver still doesn’t respond
to the G-LINK controller, please call
customer support and report the brand and
model of your external receiver.
See also GUIDE Plus+® FAQ and
troubleshooting on page 49.
5 Identify the Host Channel for your
country.
The TV listings information available in the
GUIDE Plus+ system is distributed
throughout Europe by selected broadcasters
called Host Channels. It is important that the
host (analog) channel for your country is
correctly identified in order to receive listings
information (EPG download).
Follow A, B or C below depending on your
setup:
A If you are not using an external
receiver, this recorder will automatically
scan all channels for the Host Channel:
• Leave the recorder in standby overnight
(do not leave it switched on).
B If you are using an external receiver,
you need to identify the Host Channel
from the table below:
• Tune your external receiver to the
appropriate Host Channel and leave the
receiver on and the recorder in standby
overnight.
C If you use both an external receiver and
this recorder as sources, follow the
instructions above for setting up without
an external receiver. Only if this is
unsuccessful try the external receiver
method.
About EPG download
• EPG data can only be received when the
recorder is in standby. (When not using
the recorder, therefore, please switch it
into standby.) If you’re using an external
receiver, leave this on when EPG data is
downloading.
• If you cannot receive any of the Host
Channels (see the above table) then you
won’t be able to use the GUIDE Plus+
system. In this case do not set the postal
code (or set Country to Other) in the
GUIDE Plus+ setup screen. (When
GUIDE Plus+ service starts in your area,
set the postal code again.)
If digital broadcasts start in your area,
please set the EPG Type Select setting in
the Initial Setup menu to Digital EPG.

recorder during an EPG download, the
download is cancelled.
• EPG data may be received several times
a day. All updates are automatic.
• When downloading EPG data, the
recorder may sound as though it is on.
This is normal.
Checking the downloaded data the
following day
1 Display the GUIDE Plus+ screen.
You should see a grid filled with channel
logos and TV listings information. Use the
/ buttons to review the list. If you notice
that there are channels missing, or that
there are channels in the list that you don’t
get, go to the Editor screen:
• Press  repeatedly until the Menu bar is
highlighted.
• Press  until Editor is highlighted. The
main area of the screen now shows a list
of channels. Those that are turned ON
are displayed in the grid; those that are
OFF are hidden. Use the ///
buttons to move down the list and turn
channels ON or OFF as necessary.
• For any channel that you turn ON, the
GUIDE Plus+ system will need to know
how it is received (the source) and on
which programme number. The source
may be the built-in tuner of this recorder,
or an external receiver. The programme
number is the number on which the
channel can be found on its receiving
device/source. The entry in the Editor
screen must match this number for
correct recording of that channel.
• The above is especially important for the
‘Host Channel’. Please make sure that
the Host Channel is always switched
ON.
2 Change the programme
numbers as you like.
Changing the programme numbers allows
you to decide the order in which the
channels change when stepping through
them sequentially. You can do this to group
certain channels together, for example.
3 When you’re done, press the BLUE
Action button (Home) to get back to the
GUIDE Plus+ home screen.

the new timer recording will not replace the old one. However, the next time the timer recording starts, both of
the older two programmes will be erased.
2 • If you set the timer recording to use VPS/PDC, you must switch the recorder into standby before the timer
recording is due to start for it to work correctly. For non-VPS/PDC timer recordings there is no need to switch
the recorder into standby.
• Optimized Recording will not work if VPS/PDC is on.
• Up to eight timer recordings can be set with VPS/PDC.
• VPS/PDC cannot be set for recordings made from digital broadcasts or an external input, or when the
recording mode is set to AUTO.

Manual Host Channel setup
The GUIDE Plus+ system will automatically
identify your Host Channel as soon as the
recorder is put into standby for the first time.
See the table on page 36 for a list of all the
European Host Channels.
If you know your Host Channel details
(source and programme number) or if the
automatic identification did not provide the
expected result, you can identify your Host
Channel manually. Select Host Channel
Setup in the Setup area and follow the
instructions on the TV. Select the correct
source (e.g., internal tuner or external
receiver) and enter the respective
programme number (e.g., if you have to
press 9 on the remote to watch your Host
Channel, enter 9 as the programme
number). When you next switch the recorder
into standby the GUIDE Plus+ system will
complete the Host Channel setup.
You can reset the Host Channel settings at
any time back to the default setting of
automatic. Please be aware that resetting
the Host Channel will erase all TV listings
data.
GUIDE Plus+® FAQ and
troubleshooting
This FAQ covers only a few questions. For a
complete list please consult the GUIDE
Plus+ website at:
www.europe.guideplus.com
FAQ
• When I tried setting up my external
receiver I could not get any of the
attempts to work, what should I do?
There could be several reasons why your
external receiver could not be controlled.
– The connections could be wrong. Make
sure that the G-LINK cable is connected
to the G-LINK connector on the recorder
and the IR blaster is in front of the
external receiver, pointing towards the IR
receiver of your external receiver. See
Connecting to a cable box or satellite
receiver on page 17.
– The code that is listed under your
brand could be wrong. Please try other
codes for your brand under satellite,
cable or terrestrial. Go to the Setup Area
and choose one of the three options
(cable, satellite or terrestrial) that you
have not already tried. Follow the on-
screen prompts to make sure that the
GUIDE Plus+ system can change
channels on your external receiver. If it
does not work, repeat the process,
choosing different reception and
external receiver combinations until you
have tried all the codes for your brand of
receiver that are already in the GUIDE
Plus+ system. If it still does not work,
see below on how to receive new codes
overnight.
– The unit has not yet received new
codes. The nightly data downloads
frequently include new codes for
controlling external receivers. Please
tune your external receiver to your local
Host Channel and leave it on overnight.

En
Switch this recorder into standby. The
next morning, please perform the GUIDE
Plus+ setup again to see if your external
receiver can now be controlled.
– The external receiver that you use is
currently not supported. If, after leaving
your external receiver on overnight, and
doing the Reception and External
Receiver Setup again, it still does not
respond, please call Customer Support
to report your brand and model.
• My external receiver was successfully
setup. However I have found that when
the GUIDE Plus+ system has to change
to a channel with a three-digit programme
number in the external receiver’s preset, it
does not work. It looks like the GUIDE
Plus+ system can only send two digits.
With the number of channels
increasing, the number of digits has
increased as well. While older boxes use
only two digits, newer boxes require up
to four. It is possible that you selected an
older code for your brand during set-up.
Please access the Setup Area, select
External Receiver and repeat the setup
for your brand (Note: Every time you see
the on-screen question about whether
the receiver has changed to a certain
channel, the GUIDE Plus+ system has
sent a different code). Try all the different
codes until your GUIDE Plus+ system
can control your external receiver
correctly. If you have no success, try to
receive new codes overnight.
• I used to receive data through my
terrestrial antenna or analog cable
without a set-top box. Now, I have
“upgraded” to a satellite system or to
digital cable with external receiver. What
should I do to receive data for the GUIDE
Plus+ system?
You can try to receive your Host Channel
through your new reception method. If
you have problems to receive data we
recommend that you keep your analog
terrestrial or cable connection only to
receive data this way. It is important that
you identify your Host Channel correctly
in the Editor Area.
• After I performed the initial set-up I found
that the line-up for all the channels
received via the external set-top box is
incorrect. How do I correct this?
You can change the line-up in the editor
according to your preferences. Access
the Editor Area. Select the channels that
you would like to change. Change the
source and preset number according to
your preferences.
• I performed the set-up but after many
hours I still have a blank EPG what is
going wrong?
There are several possibilities:
– Connections are wrong. See
Connections on page 14 to double check
everything.
– The initial setup of GUIDE Plus+ was
completed incorrectly. Try setting it up
again (see Setting up the GUIDE Plus+®
system on page 34).
– Your cabling and setup is OK, but the
recorder has not been connected for
enough time to receive the TV listings
data. Leave the recorder in standby
overnight.
– For external receiver users only: The
connections and setup are OK, but the
external receiver was not tuned to the
correct Host Channel. Check the list of
Host Channels (see step 5 of Setting up
the GUIDE Plus+® system on page 34)
and leave the recorder in standby and
the external receiver on overnight tuned
to the correct Host Channel.
– You live in a country/region where the
GUIDE Plus+ system is not yet available.
Check the list of countries to see if you
are in a region that is supported.

Question & answers

My pioneer DVR-LX70D used to initialize brand new dual layer discs when I inserted them in. But it suddenly has a sign saying "Could not initialize disc". Is there a solution to this? My old Pioneer DVR-540H still initializes and record dual layer discs.
