DISC INFORMATION
Recordable/Playable Discs
You can use discs with the following logos for recording and
playback.
The above table is based on the information as of October 2004.
Recording and playback may not be performed depending on the
characteristics and condition of the disc used, leading to
unsatisfactory results. Using discs manufactured by JVC is
recommended since they have been tested to be compatible with
this unit.
DVD-RAM Discs
It is only possible to use discs which conform with DVD-RAM
standard Version 2.0 or 2.1.
It is impossible to record on DVD-RAM discs which do not
conform to this standard. If you use a disc formatted under a
different standard version, format it on this unit before use.
It may not be possible to record, play back, edit or dub a
DVD-RAM disc even if it conforms to the standard if it was
recorded or edited on the devices from other manufacturers or on
a PC, or if it has far too many titles, or if there is very little
available capacity remaining on the disc.
DVD-RAM discs recorded on this unit cannot be played back on
an incompatible DVD player.
It is possible to record copy-once programmes of digital
broadcasts only onto 4.7/9.4 GB DVD-RAM discs (2.8 GB

possible to play back the recorded programmes (video and/or
audio) on a standard DVD video player as a DVD VIDEO disc.
Edited titles are displayed
as the ADVD menuB in
video mode.
It is impossible to record,
edit or delete the data
either in video mode or in

Recording Medium And Format
DVD-RAM
Recording and erasing can be performed as many times as
possible on a disc.
Editing can be performed after recording, such as deleting
unwanted parts.
While recording, it is possible not only to start playback of a
programme currently being recorded, but also to watch another
programme previously recorded.
DVD-RW (VR mode)
Recording and erasing can be performed as many times as
possible on a disc.
Editing can be performed after recording, such as deleting
unwanted parts.
DVD-RW (Video mode)
Can be played back on other DVD players.
New recording can be performed by erasing all the data on a disc
once played back.
DVD-R
Can be played back on other DVD players.
Suitable when keeping a recorded disc for a long time.
File Structure Of Discs
DVD VIDEO
Typically, DVD VIDEO discs are made up of larger units called
AtitlesB. Each title has a number (title number) that can be used to
select desired titles. Titles are further divided into units called
AchaptersB. Each chapter has a number (chapter number) that can
also be used to select desired chapters. Note that some discs are
not divided into titles and chapters.
When you record a programme on a DVD-RAM/RW (VR mode)
disc
A single recording session results in a single title (a single
chapter). However, chapter marks are automatically inserted when
recording is paused, or audio changes from monaural to stereo
due to commercial breaks, etc. It is also possible to insert chapter
marks at desired locations during playback. (Apg. 29)
When you record a programme on a DVD-R/RW (Video mode)
disc
A single recording session results in a single title (a single
chapter). However, chapter marks are automatically inserted when
recording is paused, or audio changes due to commercial breaks,
etc. It is also possible to insert chapter marks at desired locations
during either recording or playback. Once the disc has been
finalised, these chapter marks are deleted and new chapter marks
are assigned automatically approximately every 5 minutes.
In Video mode, even before finalising, it is impossible to perform
editing operations other than changing the disc name and/or title
names and deleting programmes and/or titles.
After finalising, it is impossible to perform editing operations.
Audio CD/Video CD/SVCD
Typically, Audio CD discs are divided into separate tracks each
containing one song. Each track is assigned a number. For
example, the third track is Track 3. The same is true for Video CD/
SVCD discs.
However, some discs are not divided into tracks.
JPEG/MP3 Disc (CD-R/RW/ROM)
MP3/JPEG files put in directories nested in several levels on a disc
will be organized as if they were put in single level directories
(groups) by the MP3/JPEG Navigation of this unit. (Apg. 59)
File structure of a disc before starting the MP3/JPEG
Navigation
File structure of the disc after starting the MP3/JPEG
Navigation
Files are automatically grouped as follows and displayed on the
MP3/JPEG Navigation screen. Data is displayed in the
alphabetical order of file name. Files are grouped based on roots.
This unit can recognise up to 9 hierarchies including directories
and files.
Also, it can recognise up to 250 files in each group, and up to
99 groups on a disc.
NOTES:
Video CD/SVCD discs that support Playback Control (PBC)
The contents of a disc are recorded into several hierarchies, and
played back according to the instructions on the screen while
navigating through the hierarchies. It is also possible to playback
recorded tracks consecutively without activating the PBC function
even when playing a PBC-compatible disc. (Apg. 30)
Regarding the contents recorded on discs
Some files may not be played back depending on the file types
and other factors.

Care And Handling Of Discs
How to handle discs
When handling a disc, do not
touch the surface of the disc.
Since discs are made of
plastic, they are easily
damaged. If a disc gets dirty,
dusty, scratched or warped, the
images and sound will not be
picked up correctly, and such a
disc may cause the unit to malfunction.
Label side
Do not damage the label side, stick paper to or use any adhesives
on its surface.
Recording side
Make sure that discs are not scratched or dirty on the recording
side before use. Scratches and dirt on the recording side of a disc
may hinder proper playback and recording. Also be careful that a
DVD-RAM disc may get scratched or dirty when removed from
cartridge then put back in after use.
Storage
Make sure that discs are kept in their cases. If discs are piled on
top of one another without their protective cases, they can be
damaged. Do not put discs in a location where they may be
exposed to direct sunlight, or in a place where the humidity or
temperature is high. Avoid leaving discs in your car!
Maintenance of discs
If there are fingerprints or other dirt adhering
to a disc, wipe with a soft dry cloth, moving
from the centre outwards.
If a disc is difficult to clean, wipe with a cloth
moistened with water. Never use record
cleaners, petrol, alcohol or any anti-static
agents.
CAUTION:
Sometimes during playback, noise may appear or images may
be garbled. This is sometimes due to the disc. (It may not be up
to industry standards.)
These symptoms are caused by the discs, not by the
malfunction of the unit.

Resume Function
It is possible to memorise the position where you stop playback
and resume playback from that position.

even if ARESUMEB is set to ADISC RESUMEB. (Apg. 72)
If you stop the playback of a disc for which a resume point has
already been memorised, the memory will be updated with the
new resume point.
After the unit has memorised the resume points for 30 discs,
remembering a new resume point will cause the unit to delete the
oldest memorised point. Stopping playback of a disc for which a
resume point is already stored may change the order in which the
points are stored. This may potentially change the order in which
points are deleted.
When the unit memorises a resume point for a disc, it also
remembers audio language, subtitle and angle settings.
This function may not work for some Video CD/SVCDs.
When ARESUMEB is changed to AONB or AOFFB (Apg. 72),
resume points of the discs memorised with ARESUMEB set to
ADISC RESUMEB will be cleared.
Resume points are memorised for each side of a double-sided
disc.
When you switch to HDD during CD playback, playback stops.
The Resume Function doesn’t work when you switch to DVD
thereafter to playback the disc.

page 55.
Recording sometimes may stop or cannot be performed even if
there is enough available capacity remaining on the disc.
It is not possible to record on both DVD and HDD simultaneously.
Recording Mode
MPEG 2 format is used as recording format. As a guide for picture
quality, the AbpsB unit is used to represent how much data can be
recorded per second. The larger this value is, the better the picture
quality becomes but more capacity is required for the recording.
Select XP or SP for programmes where quick movement occurs,
such as sports programmes, and LP or EP for talk shows, etc. with
relatively less movement.

Free Rate Function
To record the entire programme, the unit automatically sets the
appropriate recording mode depending on the combination of the
total time of the programme to be recorded and either the
remaining disc space or the specified recording time (from
60 minutes to 480 minutes).
8To record the entire programme within the actual
remaining disc space (DVD deck only)
Select AFR (JUST)B in a recording mode selection procedure.
Note that this function is available only for timer programming
recording (Apg. 47, 49) and dubbing from HDD to DVD
(Apg. 60).
8To record the entire programme by specifying the desired
recording time
Select AFR60-FR360B, AFR420B or AFR480B in a recording mode
selection procedure. (Apg. 37, 40, 47, 49)
8To record a 25 min. long daily programme five times just
on the same DVD disc for example
Perform AVIDEO Plus+® Timer ProgrammingB (Apg. 47)
procedure. Be sure to set the recording mode to AFR125B and set
Weekly/Daily Rec Function to AMON-FRIB in step 8 to fit the total
recording time to the whole disc space.
When the same programme is recorded in SP mode instead of in
AFR125B, the 5th programme cannot be recorded.
NOTES:
You can programme this unit to timer record, regardless of the
disc remaining time. When the disc remaining time is not enough,
the unit performs ARelief RecordingB (Apg. 49). To avoid this,
make sure of the disc remaining time before setting timer
programming.
(Example) If you programmed to timer record for 60 minutes in
SP mode on a 120 minute disc, the disc remaining time would be
30 minutes in XP mode, 60 minutes in SP mode, 120 minutes in
LP mode, 180 minutes in EP mode, and 240 minutes in FR480
mode. Timer recording will not complete beyond these remaining
times.
The maximum recording time of FR (JUST) mode is the same as
the recording time of FR480 mode. When timer programming a
long programme in FR (JUST) mode on a disc whose remaining
time is short, it is recommended to check the disc remaining time
in FR480 mode to see if the remaining time is enough for the
programme.
Even if more than one programme are timer programmed in FR
(JUST) mode, only the first one is recorded.
In order to ensure that the recording fits on the disc, this feature
may leave a slight non-recorded section at the end of the disc.
There may be some noise and sound disturbance at the point on
the disc where the unit switches the mode.
Receiving Stereo And Bilingual Programmes
Your unit is equipped with a Digital stereo sound decoder (NICAM)
making reception of stereo and bilingual broadcasts possible.
When the channel is changed, the type of broadcast being
received will be displayed on the TV screen for a few seconds.
NOTES:
ASUPERIMPOSEB must be set to AAUTOB. Otherwise the on-
screen displays will not appear. (Apg. 73)
If the quality of stereo sound being received is poor, the
broadcast might be received in monaural with better quality.
Selection Of The Audio Channel To Be Recorded On A
Disc
When a programme is recorded on a DVD-RAM or DVD-RW disc
in VR mode, all audio channels of the receiving programme are
recorded on the disc. When you record a programme on a DVD-R
or DVD-RW disc in video mode, select the desired audio channel
(ANICAMB or AMONOB) to be recorded on the disc. (Apg. 72)
NOTE:
Before playing back a programme recorded in stereo, or a bilingual
programme, refer to AAudio Channel SelectionB (Apg. 30).

LIVE MEMORY PLAYBACK
This unit records pictures onto the hard disc and DVD-RAM disc,
instead of video tapes, then plays back the pictures recorded on
the disc. This makes it possible to achieve high-speed writing and
read-out that has not been possible with conventional VCRs,
enabling recording and playback simultaneously.
It is called ALive Memory PlaybackB to start playback of the
programme being recorded, with a time-lag between a recording
point and a playback point, as shown in the figure below.
Not only can this unit play back a programme previously recorded
while recording or timer recording another programme, but the unit
also allows you to play back from the beginning of a programme
while continuing to record the same programme.
Recording/playback Status Display
NOTES:
Live Memory Playback could be performed approximately
30 seconds after recording has started on the DVD-RAM disc.
However, for HDD, Live Memory Playback is possible right after
recording has started.
Although high-speed search up to approximately 30 seconds
before the current recording point is possible during Live Memory
Playback, once the current recording point is reached, the unit
resumes normal playback and maintains a delay of
approximately 30 seconds so that recording and playback can
continue.
When using Live Memory Playback during timer recording,
playback continues even after the end of the recording.
When using Live Memory Playback during timer recording,
playback is automatically stopped just before recording starts,
and then recording starts when the time arrives for the next timer
programme.
It is impossible to perform ITR even if you press R during Live
Memory Playback. (Apg. 41)
Press o to display the programme being recorded, then perform
ITR settings.
Playback may be paused for a moment during Live Memory
Playback, which does not interfere with recording.
Live Memory Playback cannot be performed while recording the
source from DV input. (Apg. 62, ADV DubbingB)
When LIVE CHECK is pressed to display the picture currently
being recorded, the picture size may not be correct.
Press R or LIVE to stop Live Memory Playback.
Live Memory Playback cannot be performed even if the ALIVE
MEMORYB in AHDD SET UPB is set to other than AOFFB, as
temporary recording on HDD stops during recording on DVD.

Weekly/Daily Recording
You can record programmes with one of the following weekly/daily
timer settings.

disk drive is saved for new recordings by overwriting previous
recordings. To prevent loss of a needed recording, backup
programmes you wish to save by dubbing them to DVD discs
before overwriting previous recordings. Or save the title of weekly/
daily programmes to avoid overwriting of a previous week/day.
