3 HDD (Hard disk drive) handling care The HDD is a high precision recording instrument and because of its long recording capability and high speed operation it is a very special device that is easily susceptible to damage. As a basic rule, save important video content to a disc as backup. ∫ The HDD is a device that is not built to withstand vibration/shock or dust Depending on the setup environment and handling of the HDD some content may become damaged and play and recording may no longer be possible. Especially during operation, do not subject the unit to any vibration, shock, or remove the AC mains lead from the household mains socket. In the event of a power failure during recording or play, the content may be damaged. d ∫ The HDD is a temporary storage device e t r The HDD is not an everlasting storage device for recorded content. Use the HDD as a temporary storage place for one-off viewing, editing, or a t saving recorded content to a disc. s g n ∫ Immediately save (backup) all content as soon as you feel there may be a problem with the HDD i t t If there is an irregularity within the HDD, repetitive strange sounds or problems with picture (block noise, etc.) may result. Using the HDD in this e G condition may worsen the problem and in the worst case the HDD may no longer become usable. As soon as you notice this type of problem, transfer (dub) all content to disc and request service. Recorded content (data) on a HDD that has become unusable is unrecoverable. ≥When the HDD has been automatically placed in the SLEEP mode (➡ below), or the unit is turned on or off, there may be an unexpected sound. This does not indicate a problem with this unit.

∫ Setup precautions ≥Do not place in an enclosed area so the rear cooling fan and the cooling vents on the side are covered up. ≥Place the unit on a surface that is flat and not subject to vibration or impact. ≥Do not place on anything that generates heat like a video cassette ∫ Cigarette smoke etc. causes malfunction or breakdown The unit may breakdown if cigarette smoke or bug spray/vapor, etc. gets inside the unit. ∫ While operating ≥Do not move the unit or subject to vibration or impact. (The

recorder, etc. ≥Do not place in an area often subject to temperature changes. ≥Place in an area where condensation This unit VCR HDD may become damaged.) ≥Do not remove the AC mains lead from the household mains socket, or flip the power breaker switch. While the unit is on, the HDD is rotating at high speed. Sound or

does not occur. Condensation is a phenomenon where moisture forms on a cold surface when there is an extreme change in temperature. Condensation may cause internal damage to the unit. ≥Conditions where condensation may occur –When there is an extreme change in temperature (moving from a very hot location to a very cold location, or vice versa, or when subjected to an air conditioner or when cooled air directly impacts the unit). When the HDD (warms during operation) is subjected to cold air, condensation may form on the inside of the HDD and may cause damage to the HDD heads, etc. –When there is high humidity or a lot of steam in the room. –During the rainy season. In the above situation, without turning the unit on, let the unit adjust to the room temperature and wait 2–3 hours until condensation is gone. ∫ HDD recording time remaining movement due to rotation is normal. ∫ When moving the unit 1 Turn the unit off. (Wait until “BYE” disappears from the display.) 2 Remove the AC mains lead from the household mains socket. 3 Move only after the unit has come to a complete stop (approx. 2 minutes) in order to avoid subjecting to vibration and shock. (Even after turning the unit off, the HDD continues operating for a short time.)

This unit records using a VBR (Variable bit rate) data compression system to vary recorded data segments to match video data segments which may cause differences in the displayed amount of time and space remaining for recording. If the remaining amount of time is insufficient, erase any unwanted titles to create enough space before you start recording. (Erasing a playlist will not increase the amount of time.) ∫ When “HDD SLP (SLEEP)” appears on the unit’s display The HDD has been automatically placed in the SLEEP mode. (The HDD continues to rotate at high speed while the unit is on. In order to extend the life of the HDD, the HDD will be placed in the SLEEP mode if no operation has been performed for 30 minutes while there is no disc on the disc tray.) ≥Press [HDD] to activate. ≥While in SLEEP mode play or recording may not start right away because the HDD takes time to be re-activated. ≥When not using the unit, we recommend removing the disc in the tray in order to set the HDD to the SLEEP mode. ∫ Indemnity concerning recorded content Panasonic does not accept any responsibility for damages directly or indirectly due to any type of problems that result in loss of recording or edited content (data), and does not guarantee any content if recording or editing does not work properly. Likewise, the above also applies in a case where any type of repair is made to the unit (including any other non-HDD related component). RQT8033 4

Disc and card handling ∫ How to hold a disc or card Do not touch the recorded surface or the terminal surface. ∫ Concerning non-cartridge discs Be careful about scratches and dirt. ∫ If there is dirt or condensation on the disc Wipe with a damp cloth and then wipe dry. ∫ Handling precautions ≥Do not attach labels or stickers to discs. (This may cause disc warping and un-balanced rotation, rendering it unusable.) ≥Write on the label side of the disc only with a soft, oil-based felt pen. Do not use ballpoint pens or other hard writing implements. ≥Do not use record cleaning sprays, benzine, thinner, static electricity prevention liquids or any other solvent. ≥Do not use scratch-proof protectors or covers. d e ≥Do not expose the terminals of the card to water, garbage or other t r strange things. a t s ≥Do not drop stack, or impact discs. Do not place objects on them. g ≥Do not use the following discs: n i t –Discs with exposed adhesive from removed stickers or labels t e (rental discs, etc.). G –Discs that are badly warped or cracked. –Irregularly shaped discs, such as heart shapes. ≥Do not place in the following areas: –In direct sunlight. –In very dusty or humid areas. –Near a heater. –Locations susceptible to significant difference in temperature (condensation can occur). –Where static electricity or electromagnetic waves occur. ≥To protect discs from scratches and dirt, return them to their cases or cartridges when you are not using them.

The manufacturer accepts no responsibility and offers no compensation for loss of recorded or edited material due to a problem with the unit or recordable media, and accepts no responsibility and offers no compensation for any subsequent damage caused by such loss. Examples of causes of such losses are ≥A disc recorded and edited with this unit is played in a DVD Recorder or computer disc drive manufactured by another company. ≥A disc used as described above and then played again in this unit. ≥A disc recorded and edited with a DVD Recorder or computer disc drive manufactured by another company is played in this unit. Unit care The precision parts in this unit are readily affected by the environment, especially temperature, humidity, and dust.

Cigarette smoke also can cause malfunction or breakdown. To clean this unit, wipe with a soft, dry cloth. ≥Never use alcohol, paint thinner or benzine to clean this unit. ≥Before using chemically treated cloth, carefully read the instructions that came with the cloth. Observe the following points to ensure continued listening and viewing pleasure. Dust and dirt may adhere to the unit’s lens over time, making it impossible to record or play discs. Use the DVD-RAM lens cleaner about once every year, depending on frequency of use and the operating environment. Carefully read the lens cleaner’s instructions before use. Lens cleaner: LF-K123LCA1 or RP-CL720 (On sale from May 2005) Do not place the unit on amplifiers or equipment that may become hot. The heat can damage the unit. [Note] Do not obstruct the rear panel’s internal cooling fan. Before moving the unit, ensure the disc tray is empty. Failure to do so will risk severely damaging the disc and the unit. RQT8033

RQT803368 To restore the unit if it freezes due to one of the safety devices being activated ≥Press and hold [Í/I] on the main unit for 10 seconds. (The settings remain.) — Glossary Bitstream This is the digital form of multi-channel audio data (e.g., 5.1 channel) before it is decoded into its various channels. CPRM (Content Protection for Recordable Media) CPRM is technology used to protect broadcasts that are allowed to be recorded only once. Such broadcasts can be recorded only with CPRM compatible recorders and discs. Decoder A decoder restores the coded audio signals on DVDs to normal. This is called decoding. Dolby Digital This is a method of coding digital signals developed by Dolby Laboratories. Apart from stereo (2-channel) audio, these signals can also be multi-channel audio. A large amount of audio information can be recorded on one disc using this method. When recording on this unit Dolby Digital (2 channel) is the default audio. Down-mixing This is the process of remixing the multi-channel audio found on some discs into two channels. It is useful when you want to listen to the 5.1-channel audio recorded on DVDs through your television’s speakers. Some discs prohibit down-mixing and this unit can then only output the front two channels. DPOF (Digital Print Order Format) DPOF is the standard printing format for still picture data taken by a digital camera, etc. It is used for automatic printing at a photo developing store or on your home printer. Drive In the instance of this unit, this refers to the hard disk (HDD), disc (DVD) and SD card (SD). These perform the reading and writing of data. DTS (Digital Theater Systems) This surround system is used in many movie theaters. There is good separation between the channels, so realistic sound effects are possible. Dynamic range Dynamic range is the difference between the lowest level of sound that can be heard above the noise of the equipment and the highest level of sound before distortion occurs. Dynamic range compression means reducing the gap between the loudest and softest sounds. This means you can listen at low volumes but still hear dialogue clearly. Film and video DVD-Videos are recorded using either film or video. This unit can determine which type has been used, then uses the most suitable method of progressive output. For PAL Film is 25 frames per second. Video is 50 fields per second (two fields making up one frame). For NTSC Film is 24 or 30 frames per second, with motion picture film generally being 24 frames per second. Video is 60 fields per second (two fields making up one frame). Finalize A process that makes play of a recorded CD-R, CD-RW, DVD-R, etc. possible on equipment that can play such media. You can finalize DVD-R, DVD-RW (DVD-Video format) and +R on this unit. After finalizing, the disc becomes play-only and you can no longer record or edit. However, finalized DVD-RW can be formatted to become recordable. Folder This is a place on the hard disk or memory card where groups of data are stored together. In the case of this unit, it refers to the place where still pictures (JPEG, TIFF) are stored. Formatting Formatting is the process of making media such as DVD-RAM recordable on recording equipment. You can format the HDD, DVD-RAM, DVD-RW (only as DVD-Video format) and SD Memory Card on this unit. Formatting erases irrevocably all contents. Frames and fields Frames refer to the single images that constitute the video you see on your television. Each frame consists of two fields. u r Frame Field Field ≥A frame still shows two fields, so there may be some blurring, but picture quality is generally better. ≥A field still shows less picture information so it may be rougher, but there is no blurring. HDD (Hard disk drive) This is a mass data storage device used in computers, etc. A disk with a surface that has been treated with magnetic fluid is spun and a magnetic head is brought in close proximity to facilitate the reading and writing of large amounts of data at high speed. JPEG (Joint Photographic Experts Group) This is a system used for compressing/decoding colour still pictures. If you select JPEG as the storage system on digital cameras, etc., the data will be compressed to 1/10–1/100 of its original size. The benefit of JPEG is less deterioration in picture quality considering the degree of compression. LPCM (Linear PCM) These are uncompressed digital signals, similar to those found on CDs. LPCM sound is available when recording in XP mode. MP3 (MPEG Audio Layer 3) An audio compression method that compresses audio to approximately one tenth of its size without any considerable loss of audio quality. You can play MP3 you have recorded onto CD-R and CD-RW. Pan&Scan/Letterbox In general, DVD-Video are produced with the intention that they be viewed on a widescreen television (16:9 aspect ratio), so images often don’t fit regular (4:3 aspect ratio) televisions. Two styles of picture, “Pan & Scan” and “Letterbox”, deal with this problem. Pan & Scan: The sides are cut off so the picture fills the screen. Letterbox: Black bands appear at the top and bottom of the picture so the picture itself appears in an aspect ratio of 16:9. Playback control (PBC) If a Video CD has playback control, you can select scenes and information with menus. (This unit is compatible with version 2.0 and 1.1.) Progressive/Interlace The PAL video signal standard has 625 (or 576) interlaced (i) scan lines, whereas progressive scanning, called 625p (or 576p), uses twice the number of scan lines. For the NTSC standard, these are called 525i (or 480i) and 525p (or 480p) respectively. Using progressive output, you can enjoy the high-resolution video recorded on media such as DVD-Video. Your television must be compatible to enjoy progressive video. Panasonic televisions with 625 (576)/50i · 50p, 525 (480)/60i · 60p input terminals are progressive compatible. Protection You can prevent accidental erasure by setting writing protection or erasure protection. Sampling frequency Sampling is the process of converting the heights of sound wave (analog signal) samples taken at set periods into digits (digital encoding). Sampling frequency is the number of samples taken per second, so larger numbers mean more faithful reproduction of the original sound. Thumbnail This refers to a miniature representation of a picture used to display multiple pictures in the form of a list. TIFF (Tag Image File Format) This is a system used for compressing/decoding colour still pictures, a common format for storing high quality images on digital cameras and other devices. e c n e r e f e R RQT8033

However, this function works in the stop mode. This function does not work during the following operations: Preset Download, Auto-Setup, Auto Clock Setting, Child Lock and Manual Tuning. PDC (Programme Delivery Control) Depending on the type of TV used, the above messages may not appear correctly. § These operations are only available if the unit is connected to a TV featuring the Q Link function. ≥If you have an IDTV with electronic programme guide function for digital broadcasts, you can perform timer recording using the electronic programme guide function. Refer to the television’s operating instructions for further information.

Programme Delivery Control adjusts the start and stop time of a timer recording automatically to ensure the recording starts and finishes in line with the programme broadcast. This is useful when a programme over-runs the published times. The station must be transmitting PDC and the exact time must be set for PDC to work. The unit detects whether a station is transmitting PDC only during the tuning process. If PDC is introduced or discontinued by a station you will need to re-tune the unit before it becomes aware of this. PDC transmissions are not currently nation-wide so please check with your local broadcaster for more information. The beginnings of recordings may not be recorded correctly in some cases.
