About DVR (HDD)

DVR is a special component which has high recording density and is suited for long-timerecording orhigh-speedcueing but by contrast, has many factors which can cause breakage. Use DVR on the premise that you should dub the recorded programs to a DVD disc or a videotape to protect your precious videos.

Be sure to dub (back up) data promptly if you find abnormalities in DVR.

If there is mechanical trouble with the DVR, grinding or other sounds may be heard or blocky noise may appear on the image. If you continue to use as it is, deterioration may continue and eventually the DVR may not be used at all. If you notice these symptoms of a failing DVR, promptly dub the data to a DVD disc or a videotape.

When an DVR fails, recovery of recorded content (data) may be impossible.

About the remaining capacity of DVR recording time:

In recording to DVR, the Remaining Capacity Display may differ from the actual recordable time as this unit adopts Variable Bit Rate encoding, which varies the recording (storage) amount of data in conformity with the information amount of video. Before recording to the DVR, ensure there is sufficient space on the DVR by deleting unnecessary titles in advance.
