You can play DVD+RW in most DVD players without finalizing. To play discs other than DVD+RW in other DVD players, you will need to finalize.

Note

This recorder cannot record CD-RWorCD-Rdiscs.

DVD+RW/R, DVD-RW/RandCD-RW/Rdiscs recorded on a personal computer or a DVD or CD recorder may not play if the disc is damaged or dirty or if there is dirt of condensation on the player’s lens.

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

DVD-RW/Rdiscs recorded in Video mode cannot be recorded additionally using the unit.

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

You cannot record copy-protectedvideo using this unit.(Copy-protectedvideo includes DVDVideo discs and some satellite broadcasts.)

You cannot record videos that includes “copyonce only” signal.

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, “DVD” on the front panel display flashes and Timer Recording cannot be performed. In some cases, “DVD” flashes 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, “VCR” on the front panel display flashes and timer recording cannot be performed. Please insert a recordable videotape.

If you press [STANDBY-ON] and turn on the unit while either DVD or VCR is in timer standby mode,disappears. In this case, you cannot change the mode between DVD and VCR. You cannot change any settings using[SETUP] or edit discs.

After step 9 on page 30, 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 [STANDBY-ON] during timer standby. During Timer Recording, press

[SOURCE] 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.

When all the Timer Recording is completed, flashes. To play or eject the recorded disc, press[STANDBY-ON] first, and then press[PLAY B] or[OPEN/CLOSE A].

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 [TIMER SET] during timer standby or stop recording by pressing[STOP C] 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 or tape reaches the end during the recording, the unit turns itself off. If you want to continue the recording, cancel timer standby by pressing [TIMER SET], insert a new disc or tape, and then press[TIMER 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 [TIMER 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 records the programs according to priority if the timer programmings are overlapped. The timer programming set previously has priority.

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.

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 is the same, the first 30 seconds (at the longest) of the subsequent program will be cut off.

If the cut-offportion comes up to one minute or more, this program will be displayed with error number E40 in 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. A is a DVD recording program, the beginning of the PROG. B may be cut off.
