TO REDUCE THE RISK OF ELECTRIC SHOCK, DO NOT REMOVE THE COVER (OR BACK). NO USER-SERVICEABLE PARTS ARE INSIDE. REFER SERVICING TO QUALIFIED SERVICE PERSONNEL. IMPORTANT NOTE The mains lead on this equipment is supplied with a moulded plug incorporating a fuse. The value of the fuse is indicated on the pin face of the plug. If it requires replacing, a fuse approved to BS1362 of the same rating must be used. Never use the plug with the fuse cover omitted if the cover is detachable. If a replacement fuse cover is required, it must be of the same colour as the pin face of the plug. Replacement covers are available from your dealer. If the fitted plug is not suitable for the power points in your house or the cable is not long enough to reach a power point, you should obtain a suitable safety approved extension lead or consult your dealer for assistance. However, if there is no alternative to cutting off the plug, remove the fuse and then safely dispose of the plug. Do not connect the plug to a mains jack, as there is a risk of shock hazard from the bared flexible cord. To disconnect the apparatus from the mains, the plug must be pulled out from the mains socket, therefore the mains plug shall be readily operable.

Pictures with copy protection cannot be recorded on this DVD Recorder. When the DVD Recorder receives a copy- guard signal while recording, recording stops and the following message appears on the screen.
You cannot record copy protected movie.
Concerning Copy Control Signals
TV broadcasts that contain copy control signals may have one of the following three signal types, Copy-Free, Copy-Once and Copy-Never. If you want to record a copy-once type programme, use DVD-RW with CPRM in VR Mode and DVD-RAM discs. Signal type Copy-Free O O O O Copy-Once O* Copy-Never
DVD-RAM(Ver.2.0) DVD+RW DVD+R DVD-RW(Ver.1.1) DVD-RW(Ver.1.1) with CPRM VR mode V mode DVD-R
Once Copy Once has been recorded, recording cannot be done anymore. * Compatible with CPRM
Content Protection for Recordable Media (CPRM)
CPRM is a mechanism that ties a recording to the media on which it is recorded. 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. 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. Disc contents cannot be copied to other media.
M The timer counter decreases by the minute from the recording time
set to 0:00, then the DVD Recorder stops recording.
Making a Timer Recording
1. Check the antenna cable is connected. 2. Check the remaining time of the disc. 3. Check the date and time are correct. Make sure the Clock (Setup-Present Time) must be set before you proceed with a timer recording. (See pages 24~25) 1. With the unit in Stop mode, press the MENU button. 2.
