Note

This recorder cannot record on CD-RWorCD-Rdiscs.

DVD-RW/RandCD-RW/Rdiscs 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 dirt of condensation on the player’s lens.

If you record on a disc using a personal computer, there are cases in which it may not be played back because of the settings of the application software used to create the disc, even if it is recorded in a compatible format. (Check with the software publisher for more detailed information.)

Discs recorded in Video mode on this unit cannot record additionally using other DVD recorders.

A DVD-RWdisc formatted with this unit cannot be used on other DVD recorders.

Since the recording is made by the variable bit rate (VBR) method, the actual remaining time for recording may be a little bit shorter than the remaining time displayed on the OSD, depending on the picture you are recording.

Restrictions on recording

You cannot record copy-protecteddiscs or tapes using this unit.Copy-protectedmaterial includesDVD-Videodiscs and some satellite broadcasts.

If copy-protectedmaterial is encountered during a recording, recording will be paused or stop automatically and an error message will be displayed onscreen.

Material that is “copy-onceonly” can only be recorded using aDVD-RWdisc in VR mode with

CPRM (see below).

When recording a TV broadcast or through an external input, you can display copy control information on screen.

What is “CPRM”?

This is a format used to record copy-onceprograms. By recording coded data on the area of DVD discs that ordinary writing software cannot write, it preventscopy-onceprograms from being recorded repeatedly on different media. This unit is CPRM compatible, which means that you can recordcopy-oncebroadcast programs, but then you cannot make a copy of those recordings. CPRM recordings can only be made onDVD-RWdiscs formatted in VR mode, and CPRM recordings can only be played back on DVD players that are compatible with CPRM.

Making discs playable on other DVD player (Finalize)

After recording, you must finalize the disc in order to play on other units. (Refer to page 36.)

Timer Recording (cont’d)

Hints for Timer Recording

• If there is a power failure or this unit has been unplugged for more than 30 seconds, the clock setting and all timer settings will be lost.

If a recordable disc is not on the tray or an unrecordable disc is on the tray, the DVD indicator on the front panel flashes and Timer recording cannot be performed. In some cases, the DVD indicator appears momentarily around the Timer starting time as the unit attempts to record. Please insert a recordable disc.

If a videotape with a record tab is not in the cassette compartment or there is no videotape in the compartment, the

VCR indicator on the front panel flashes and timer recording cannot be performed. Please insert a recordable videotape.

• If you press [POWER] and turn on the unit while either DVD or VCR is in timer standby mode, theindicator lights off. In this case, you cannot change the mode between DVD and VCR. You cannot change any settings using[SETUP] or edit discs.

• After step 11 on page 32, you can turn on the power to use the side of the unit that is free from Timer Recording (either DVD or VCR) for another recording by pressing [POWER] during timer standby. During Timer Recording, press[SELECT] on the front panel, or[DVD] or[VCR] on the remote control. Note that you cannot change channels after Timer Recording started. You can use all recording/recording pause/OTR functions. However, the unit will begin receiving channel signals for Timer Recording 2 minutes before the programmed starting time. Unless the program that you are currently recording using the Timer Recording free side of the unit is on the same channel with the one programmed for Timer Recording, the unit prioritizes Timer Recording and the current recording will be automatically stopped. If the channels set for Timer recording and the current recording are same, the current recording will continue without interruption.

If both DVD and VCR are timer programmed, you cannot use any functions for either unit during timer standby or Timer Recording. If you want to use functions other than recording under such condition, cancel Timer Recording by pressing [T-SET] during timer standby or stop recording by pressing[STOP] on the front panel during Timer Recording.

When the starting and ending time are same, the recording will be set for 24 hours. When the disc reaches the end during the recording, the unit turns itself off. If you want to continue the recording, cancel timer standby by pressing [T-SET],insert a new disc, and then press[T-SET] again. If you are recording on a tape, the unit automatically ejects

the tape when it reaches the end. You can continue the recording by inserting a new tape.

• When the programmed starting and ending time are earlier than the current time, the setting will not be accepted and be cleared for redoing.

• If the starting time is earlier and the ending time is later than the current time, the recording will start right after you press [T-SET].

The Timer Recording cannot be performed in DVD and VCR at the same time. If you set two programming with the same channel and time in both units, the program with a lower program number will be recorded.

The priority of overlapped settings

This unit prioritizes recording as follows if the timer programmings are overlapped.

A Timer Recording of lower priority will be canceled, start from the middle or stop on the way. Check the overlapped timer programmings and change the priority if necessary.

A programming with a lower program number has priority

When the starting time is same:

A program with a lower program number (PROG. 1) has priority.

Note for DVD recording

When the recording time of two programs are overlapped, or the End time of a program and the Start time of another are the same, the first 30 seconds (at the longest) of the subsequent program will be cut off.

If the cut-offportion reaches one minute or more, this program will be displayed with error number E40 on the timer programming list.

When the End time of the programming currently being recorded and the Start time of the subsequent program are same:

If PROG. 1 is recorded on a DVD, the beginning of the PROG. 2 may be

cut off.The amount of time cut off differs depending on the recording media. For example, if both PROG. 1 and PROG. 2 are recorded on DVD, the first 30 seconds (at the longest) of PROG. 2 will be cut off.
