How to use the DVD Recorder & VCR

Step 1

Select the disc type

Step 3

There are two different recording methods: Direct Recording and Timer Recording. Timer recording is classified as a Date : Once, Daily or Weekly. Recording mode : XP (high quality mode), SP (standard quality mode), LP (long recording mode), and EP (extended mode).
This unit can record on the following types of discs. If you want to repeatedly record on the same disc or you want to edit the disc after recording, select a rewritable DVDRW or DVD-RAM type disc. If you want to save a recording without any changes, choose a non-rewritable DVDR.

Step 4

Playing

Step 2

Format the disc to start recording
Unlike a VCR, the recorder automatically starts formatting when an unused disc is inserted. This is required for the preparation of recording on a disc.
You can select the title you want to play in a displayed menu and then immediately start playback. A DVD consists of sections called titles, and sub sections called chapters. During recording, a title is created between two points where you start and stop recording. Chapters will be created automatically when you finalize recording on DVD-R / DVD-RW discs in Video mode. You can make your own chapters on DVD+RWs and edit them using the Chapter Edit menu. The chapters length (interval between chapters) varies according to the recording mode.

Using a DVD-RAM

This type of disc can be formatted in DVD-Video Recording format (VR mode). You can edit recorded images and create a playlist in a specific sequence according to your requirements.

Using a DVDRW/+R

When an unused DVDRW/+R disc is first inserted,
the message "Uninitialized Disc. Do you want to initialize this disc?" will be displayed. If you select Yes, initializing will be start. DVD-RW disc can be formatted in either DVD-Video format (Video mode) or DVD-Video Recording format (VR mode) With DVD+RW discs, there is no difference between DVD-Video format (Video mode) and DVD-Video Recording format (VR mode).

Step 5

Editing a recorded disc
Editing on discs is easier than conventional video tapes. The recorder supports many different edit functions, possible only with DVDs. With a simple and easy edit menu, you can operate various edit functions, such as delete, copy, rename, lock, etc., on a recorded title.

Using a DVD-R

Initializing disc is unnecessary and only V mode Recording is supported. You can play this type of disc on various DVD components only when they have been finalized.
Creating a playlist (DVD-RAM/-RW in VR mode)
With this recorder, you can create a new playlist on the same disc and edit it without changing the original recording.
You can only use either the VR or Video mode on a DVD-RW, but not both at the same time. You can format a DVD-RW to V or VR mode using disc manager. It should be noted that the disc's data will be lost when changing formats.

Page 10

Step 6

Finalizing & Playing on other DVD components
To play your DVD on other DVD players, finalizing may be necessary. First, finish all editing and recording operations, then finalize the disc.
When using a DVD-RW disc in VR Mode
Although finalizing is generally unnecessary when playing the disc on a VR Mode compatible component, a finalized disc should be used for playback.
When using a DVD-RW disc in Video Mode
The disc should be finalized first to enable playback on anything other than this recorder. No more editing or recording can be made on the disc once it has been finalized.

When using a DVDR disc

You should finalize the disc to play it on a component other than this recorder. You cannot edit or record on the disc once it has been finalized.

It is supported by some DVD recorders, but not by many DVD players. Each blank recordable DVD has a unique 64-bit media ID etched in the BCA(Burst Cutting Area). When protected content is recorded onto the disc, it can be encrypted with a 56-bit C2 (Cryptomeria) cipher derived from the media ID. During playback, the ID is read from the BCA and used to generate a key to decrypt the contents of the disc. If the contents of the disc are copied to other media, the ID will be absent or wrong and the data will not be decryptable.

Remove batteries and hold down one or more buttons for several minutes to drain the microprocessor inside the remote control to reset it. Reinstall batteries and try to operate the remote control again. Ensure that the disc is installed with the label side facing up. Check the region number of the DVD. 5.1 channel sound is reproduced only when the following conditions are met.: 1) The DVD-VCR is connected with the proper Amplifier 2) The disc is recorded with 5.1 channel sound. Check whether the disc being played has the 5.1 ch mark on the outside. Check if your audio system is connected and working properly. In a DVD Setup Menu, is the Audio Output set to Bitstream?

The feature is not available at the moment. 4. Youve requested a title or chapter number or search time that is out of range. Check if the disc has a Menu. Some of the functions selected in the Setup Menu may not work properly if the disc is not encoded with the corresponding function. The Screen Ratio is fixed on your DVDs. Make sure you have selected the correct Digital Output in the Audio Options Menu.
