    Welcome
    Thank you
    for choosing a Loewe product. We are happy to
    welcome you as our customer.
    At Loewe we combine the highest standards
    of technology, design and user friendliness. This is
    equally true of TV, DVD, video, audio and accessories.
    Neither technology nor design is an end
    in itself, but both are intended to provide our
    customers with the best possible audio and visual
    experience.
    Our design is not influenced by short-term,
    fashionable trends. You have, after all, purchased
    a high-quality piece of equipment which you do
    not want to get tired of looking at tomorrow or the
    day after.

    Scope of delivery









    Loewe Centros DVD recorder
    RC3 remote control with 2 batteries
    Euro AV cable (Scart cable)
    Audio cinch cable
    Video cinch cable
    Antenna cable
    1x DVD-RW disc
    this operating manual

    You can use the remote control to operate four
    units: as well as this DVD recorder, a Loewe television, a Loewe video recorder and a set-top box
    (STB).

    Set up
    • Place the DVD recorder on a firm, level base.
    • Do not place the DVD recorder in the vicinity of
    sources of intense heat or in direct sunlight.
    • When installing in a cabinet or enclosed shelf:
    Leave about 2.5cm free space around the DVD
    player for unhindered air circulation to prevent
    build-up of heat.

    • There can be interference to the images and
    sound of any nearby television, video recorder or
    radio. If this occurs, do not place the unit near
    to a television, video recorder or radio, or switch
    the unit off after removing the disc.
    • Install the DVD recorder where there is nothing
    to obstruct the remote control‘s infrared signal
    from reaching the DVD recorder display.
    • Do not place strong artificial light sources in
    front of the device. This may affect infrared
    reception.
    • If there is an electrical storm, disconnect the
    antenna and mains plug. Power surges caused
    by lightning strikes can damage the unit through
    the antenna system or the mains.
    • The antenna and mains should also be disconnected if the unit is to remain unsupervised for a
    long period of time.
    • The mains plug must be easily accessible so that
    the unit can be disconnected at any time.
    • Lay the cable in such a way that it cannot get
    damaged. The power cable should not be kinked
    or laid over sharp edges, not stood upon or
    exposed to chemicals - the latter also applies to
    the device as a whole. A mains cable with damaged insulation can cause electric shocks and is
    a fire hazard.
    • When removing the power plug, pull the body
    of the plug, and not the cable. Otherwise, the
    wires in the plug could get damaged and cause
    a short circuit the next time it is plugged in.

    Disposal

    You should also read and follow the safety advice
    on the following pages.

    Remote control batteries

    Cardboard box and packaging
    You have opted for a durable and technically sophisticated product. In line with national
    regulations regarding the disposal of packaging
    materials, we pay a fee to authorised recyclers
    who collect packaging from dealers. However, we
    recommend that you keep the original cardboard
    box and the rest of the packaging materials so that
    the unit can, if necessary, be transported in the
    safest possible conditions.

    The unit
    Important: The EU Directive
    2002/96/EG governs the proper
    re-acceptance, handling and
    recycling of used electronic appliances.
    Old electronic appliances must therefore be
    disposed of separately. Never throw this set in the
    normal domestic waste. You can hand in your old
    set free of charge at identified collection points or
    at your dealer if you buy a similar new set. Other
    details about re-acceptance (also for non-EU countries) are available from your local administration..

    The batteries provided contain no harmful materials such as cadmium, lead or mercury.
    Regulations concerning used batteries mean
    that batteries may no longer be thrown out with
    the household rubbish. You can dispose of used
    batteries free of charge at the collection points in
    commercial outlets. Your dealer will also have a
    collection point for used batteries.

    Cleaning

    Protect your DVD recorder from ...

    • Only clean your DVD recorder with a damp, soft,
    clean cloth (with no aggressive cleaning agents).
    • If DVD recorder fails to read the disc correctly,
    the reader unit in the device may be soiled. Use
    a commercially-available cleaning disc.
    • Always keep the disc drawer closed to prevent
    dust getting into the drawer and onto the lens.






    For your safety
    For your own safety and to avoid unnecessary damage to your unit, please read and follow the safety
    advice below:
    • This DVD recorder is only to be used for receiving, displaying and playing visual and sound
    signals.
    • Switch off your DVD system (Centros, TV and
    any other audio components which may be
    connected) before connecting or disconnecting
    other devices or speakers.

    • Do not open up the housing, or you could be
    directly exposed to the laser beam. The laser
    beam will be visible if the unit is open.
    DO NOT LOOK INTO THE LASER BEAM.

    liquids and damp
    shock and mechanical stress
    magnetic and electrical fields
    cold, heat, direct sunlight and extreme fluctuations in temperature
    • dust
    • anything which obstructs ventilation
    • manual interference with the unit‘s interior
    Your Centros has only been designed for use in a
    domestic environment. The warranty covers this
    normal use of the DVD recorder.
    PLEASE NOTE: TO AVOID RISK OF ELECTRICAL
    SHOCK, DO NOT REMOVE THE COVER (OR THE
    REAR OF THE UNIT). THERE ARE NO PARTS INSIDE
    THE UNIT THAT CAN BE REPAIRED BY THE USER.
    REPAIRS SHOULD ONLY BE CARRIED OUT BY A
    LOEWE DEALER.
    If you have moved the DVD recorder from a
    cold to a warm environment, leave it to stand for
    about an hour because of the risk of condensation
    building up. Do not switch it on until it has reached
    room temperature. This will avoid seriously damaging the components.
    Read this operating manual, and experiment with
    your new equipment‘s features so that you are
    familiar with it.

    Advantages of connection
    to a Loewe TV set
    You can use Digital Link to install the DVD
    recorder e.g. in an enclosed rack or a wall unit,
    without there being direct visible contact with the
    DVD recorder. Using the DVD remote control, you
    can operate the DVD recorder via the Loewe television. To do this, Digital Link must be switched on
    at the DVD recorder (see page 17).
    If you want to make timer recordings from the
    satellite tuner in the television, the recording is
    controlled by Digital Link.
    Digital Link Plus enables channel data to be
    transferred from the television‘s satellite and cable
    channels to the DVD recorder, so that the same
    channels appear in the same channel position.
    This means that timer recordings of satellite and
    cable channels can easily be programmed from
    the television using the EPG (Electronic Program
    Guide). The timer data is copied to the DVD recorder, which then, independently of the television,
    carries out the timer recording. With timer data for
    satellite stations, the television starts and stops the
    DVD recorder and sets it to the Euro AV 1 input.
    If playback begins, this is immediately shown on
    the television, no matter which TV channel you are
    currently watching (if the television is switched off,
    it will automatically switched on).

    Essential Information
    Disc-related Terms
    Title (DVD only)
    A title is the main film content or the content of
    the accompanying feature or the music album.
    Each title has a title number enabling you to locate
    it easily.

    Chapter (DVD only)
    Chapters are sections of a film or a piece of music
    that are smaller than a title. A title consists of one
    or several chapters. Each chapter has a chapter number to enable you to locate the desired
    chapter. Depending on the disc, chapters may not
    be labeled.

    Track (Video CD or Audio CD only)
    Sections of a film or a piece of music on a Video CD
    or an Audio CD. Each track has a track number to
    enable you to find the desired track.

    Scene
    On a Video CD with PBC (Playback Control) functions, moving pictures and still pictures are divided
    into sections that are called “scenes“. Each scene
    is displayed in the scene menu and has a scene
    number to enable you to find the scene quickly. A
    scene consists of one or more tracks.

    Types of Video CDs
    There are two types of Video CDs:

    Video CDs equipped with PBC
    (Version 2.0)
    PBC (Playback Control) functions enable you to interact with the system via menus, search functions
    or other typical computer operations. In addition
    high-resolution still pictures can be displayed if
    they are available on the disc.

    Video CDs not equipped with PBC
    (Version 1.1)
    These discs are operated in the same way as Audio
    CDs and allow playback of video pictures and
    sound. They are not however equipped with PBC.

    Symbols
    The symbol on the screen
    During operation “ ” may appear on the screen.
    This symbol means that the desired function is not
    currently available on this disc.
    Disc symbols in the operating instructions
    If part of the operating instructions contains one
    of the symbols listed below, the section is only applicable to the disc shown on the symbol.
    Many functions of this recorder are dependent
    on the selected recording quality. One or more of
    the symbols (DVD, Video, +RW, MP3) are displayed for each function described in the manual
    so that you can immediately see whether the disc
    supports this function.

    DVD-R and DVD-RW discs
    How are DVD-R and DVD-RW discs
    different?
    The essential difference between a DVD-R and a
    DVD-RW disc is the fact that a DVD-R disc can only
    be written to once, whilst a DVD-RW disc can be
    written to several times. In addition, its content can
    be deleted. You can write to and delete a DVD-RW
    disc approx. 1000 times.

    DVD players
    DVD-R discs and DVD-RW discs written to in Video
    mode can be played on some normal DVD players.
    They must however be finalized first. This process
    fixes the content of the disc so that it can be read
    by other DVD players as a DVD-Video disc.

    Essential Information
    What are “Recording Modes“?

    Use of “Original“ and “Playlist“

    This recorder offers two recording modes: VR mode
    and Video mode. Recordings on DVD-R discs are
    always in Video mode. Recordings on DVD-RW
    discs can be in either VR or Video mode.

    Throughout this manual you will often see the
    words “Original“ and “Playlist“ used to describe
    the actual content and the edited version.
    • Original: Content refers to what is actually
    recorded on the disc.
    • Playlist: Content refers to the edited version of
    the disc, i.e. how the original content should be
    played.

    DVD-R and DVD-RW Discs
    VR Mode Recording
    • 4 possible picture quality/recording time settings
    (EQ, LQ, SQ, HQ), see page 24.
    • Cannot be played on normal DVD players.
    • Recordings can be comprehensively edited.
    • Use of original lists and playlists (see page 48
    and 49).

    Video Mode Recording
    • 4 possible picture quality/recording time settings
    (EQ, LQ, SQ, HQ), see page 24.
    • Can be played on normal DVD players (after
    finalization)
    • Limited editing functions.
    Note: The “Video mode“ DVD-Video format is a
    new format for recording on DVD-R/RW discs that
    was approved by the DVD Forum in 2000. For this
    reason you may experience problems playing writable DVD discs on some players. Symptoms include
    video artifacts, audio and/or video dropout and
    playback stopping suddenly. Our company cannot
    take any responsibility for problems playing discs
    recorded on this recorder on other players.

    DVD+R and DVD+RW Discs
    Recording on DVD+RW Discs
    • 4 possible picture quality/recording time settings
    (EQ, LQ, SQ, HQ), see page 24.
    • Can be played on many DVD players that support the +RW format (where appropriate, only
    after finalization).
    • Titles/chapters of recordings can be edited.
    • Edited content can only be played after finalization on some DVD players.

    Recording on DVD+R Discs
    • 4 possible picture quality/recording time settings
    (EQ, LQ, SQ, HQ), see page 24.
    • Can be played on many DVD players that support the +R format (where appropriate, only
    after finalization).
    • Limited editing of titles/chapters.
    • Edited content cannot be played on normal
    DVD players. (Hide, combined chapters, added
    chapter markers etc.).

    DVD Recordings
    Note: Fingerprints and scratches on the disc can
    affect playback and/or recording. Take proper care
    of your discs.

    Disc Types and Recording Formats,
    Modes and Settings
    This recorder can play five different types of DVD
    disc:
    • DVD-Video disc
    • DVD-RW disc
    • DVD-R- disc
    • DVD+RW disc
    • DVD+R- disc.
    A DVD-R disc is always formatted in “Video Format“ - the same as prerecorded DVD-Video discs,
    i.e. after finalization you can play a DVD-R disc on
    a normal DVD player.
    “Video Recording Format“ (VR) is the default
    format for a DVD-RW disc. If required, the disc can
    be changed to Video format through subsequent
    reformatting (“Disc -➜ Formatting“ in the main
    menu) (Caution! The contents of the disc will be
    erased).
    The recording quality is closely related to the
    formatting.

    Essential Information
    If the disc format is Video Recording format, the
    recording mode for the disc is referred to as „VR
    mode“. However, the recording mode of a Video
    format disc is referred to as „Video mode“ (Exception: a prerecorded DVD-Video disc which is not
    recordable has no recording mode).
    The recording modes determine the recording
    and editing options for the whole disc. Amongst
    other things they determine the picture quality and
    how much space the recording will take up on the
    disc.

    Notes on Recording
    • The displayed recording time is not exact as the
    recorder uses variable bit-rate video compression. This means that the exact recording
    time will depend on the material that is being
    recorded.
    • When recording a television broadcast the
    recording time may be shorter if the reception is
    poor or the picture contains interference.
    • If you record only still pictures or audio, the
    recording time may be shorter.
    • The displayed recording time and remaining time
    may not always add up to the total length of
    the disc.
    • The available recording time may be shorter following intensive editing of the disc.
    • If you use a DVD-RW disc, make sure you select
    the recording format (Video mode or VR mode)
    before you start recording. See page 25 (Formatting) for more information.

    • If you use a DVD-R disc you can continue
    recording until the disc is full or until you finalize
    it. Before you start recording check how much
    recording time is available on the disc.
    • If you use a DVD-RW disc in Video mode, the
    available recording time will increase if you
    delete the last title recorded on the disc.
    • The „Delete Title“ function in the „Title ListOriginal“ menu only hides the title, it does not
    however delete it from the disc and does not
    therefore increase the recording time (except if
    you delete the last recorded title on a DVD-RW
    disc in Video mode).
    • Overwrite recording is only possible on DVD+RW
    discs.

    audio will be recorded in the case of a NICAM
    transmission.

    • The recording equipment should only be used for
    lawful copying. You should find out what constitutes lawful copying in the country in which
    you are making a copy. Copying of copyrighted
    material e.g. films or music is only lawful if
    permitted by a legal exception or consented to
    by the rights owner.
    • The product contains copyright protection

    Restrictions on Video Recording
    • You cannot record any copy-protected film
    material with this recorder. Copy-protected video
    includes DVD-Video discs and some satellite
    transmissions. If copy-protected material is encountered during recording, recording is paused
    or stopped automatically and an error message
    appears on the screen.
    • Video that can only be copied once can only be
    recorded using a DVD-RW disc in VR mode with
    CPRM (see below).
    • NTSC format signals from analog or DV inputs
    cannot be recorded correctly with this recorder.
    • SECAM format video signals (from an integrated
    TV tuner or from analog inputs) are recorded in
    PAL format.

    CPRM is a copy protection system (with scramble
    system) that only allows the recording of “copy
    once“ broadcasts. CPRM is the abbreviation for
    “Content Protection for Recordable Media”.
    This recorder is CPRM compatible. You can
    therefore record copy-once broadcasts but cannot
    make copies of these recordings. CPRM recordings
    are only possible with VR mode formatted DVD-RW
    discs and can only be played on players with CPRM
    compatibility.

    remote control signals to Centros via the EuroAV connection. Digital Link is useful if you want
    to install Centros in a concealed place, e.g. in a
    closed rack.
    • Switching on Digital Link.
    Centros must be switched on. Press the
    key on Centros for > 3 secs. “LINK“ appears
    briefly in the Centros display.
    • Switching off Digital Link.
    Centros must be switched on. Press the
    key on Centros for > 3 secs. “FRONT“ appears
    briefly in the Centros display.

    If you have connected the DVD recorder to a Loewe
    TV set with Digital Link Plus or a comparable
    system from another manufacturer (e.g. EasyLink,
    Mega Logic, Project 50), the program list will be
    transferred from the television set to the DVD recorder. This takes place when you register the DVD
    recorder with the TV set, or when you make any
    changes to the programs on the TV set (re-sorting,
    deleting, adding). After a change of this sort, the
    TV set will ask you to start transferring the changed
    program list.
    The DVD recorder detects a connected TV set with
    Digital Link Plus or a similar system from another
    manufacturer and adjusts the DVD recorder accordingly. This means that you cannot search for, delete
    or sort TV programs on the DVD recorder. The
    menu items are grayed out; during the automatic
    search it is only possible to transfer the program
    information from the TV set.
    Note that all programs that you receive via aerial or
    cable must be stored in program numbers 1 to 88
    on the TV set.
    If the TV set does not ask you to transfer the
    program information, then start the transfer on the
    DVD recorder.
    If your TV set is equipped with Digital Link Plus or
    with a comparable system from another manufacturer, only carry out program changes on the TV
    set.
    If the TV set that you have connected to the DVD
    recorder does not have Digital Link Plus or a
    comparable system, then you should harmonize
    the DVD recorder and TV set program lists. This will
    help you to find programs on the TV set and DVD
    recorder.

    Advice on MP3 recording
    About MP3
    • An MP3 file is made up of audio data that have
    been compressed using MPEG1 audio layer 3
    file coding. Files with the “.mp3“ extension are
    known as MP3 files.
    • The recorder cannot read MP3 files that have an
    extension other than “.mp3“.

    To achieve the best possible playback quality, the
    discs and recordings that are played on the DVD
    recorder should meet certain technical standards.
    DVDs that have already been played meet these
    standards. With writable disc formats, there are
    many different types (e.g. a CD-R with MP3 files)
    that have to meet certain conditions (see above) if
    compatibility is to be assured when playing.
    It should also be noted that permission
    is required to download MP3 files and
    music from the Internet. Our company is
    not authorised to issue such permission.
    The permission required should always be
    sought from the copyright holder.

    Copying files / folders from a CD to an
    audio/photo card
    MP3 and photo files can be copied from a CD to a
    memory card in the audio/photo card reader This

    Use “Cancel“ to return to the starting menu.
    “New folder“ can be used to create a new folder
    on the memory card. You can then copy the
    selected files / folders to it.

    Note: You should be sure to switch off any write
    protection on the memory card and check that

    Notes about JPEG files
    Depending on the size and number of JPEG files,
    it can take several minutes to read the disc. If
    nothing appears on the screen after a few minutes,
    some files are too large. Reduce the resolution of
    the JPEG files to less than 4 Megapixels and burn
    the disc again.
    There is no limit on the total number of files
    and folders, but the total number of files in the
    folder has to be fewer than 999.
    Due to different recording formats or the condition of the CD, some discs may be incompatible.
    When using burning software to burn JPEG
    files onto a CD-R, all the selected files must have
    the “.jpg“ or “.jpeg“ extension before they will be
    burned onto the CD.
    If the files have the “.jpe“ extension, they must
    be renamed to “.jpg“ or “.jpeg“.
    This recorder cannot read file names without the
    “.jpg” or “.jpeg” extension, even if the files appear
    as JPEG images in Windows Explorer.

    Using the audio/photocard reader
    Overview
    About the system
    You can use the digital audio/photo card reader
    built into the DVD recorder to display on the screen
    images from digital cameras with the most common
    memory cards.
    MP3 audio files can also be played. You can create
    and play a programme list consisting of a selection
    of MP3 titles.
    You use the Loewe DVD recorder‘s remote control to
    operate the audio/photo card reader.
    When the memory card is inserted, you can use the
    CARD
    button to switch to using the audio/
    photo card reader. An overview will appear of the
    images or MP3 files stored on the card - depending
    on the last method of use.

    Data/memory card compatibility
    The images stored on the card must be in the JPEG
    baseline DCF format. Other formats will not be displayed and are identified in the overview by a question mark. There is a maximum of 8 Megapixels. For
    further details about JPEG files, refer to page 38.
    MP3 files are played at 32 - 320 kBps bit rates
    and at variable bit rates.
    If the memory card is formatted on a PC or Mac, to
    then save a series of pictures on the card, it must be
    formatted in FAT 12, 16 or 32. Memory cards with
    other formats cannot be read.

    changed (see page 41).
    MP3 or JPEG files can be copied from a data CD to
    a memory card with enough free storage space, so
    that they can be played on, e.g., portable playback
    devices (see page 37).

    Removing a memory card: Press gently on the
    middle of the front of the card until it disengages,
    and then carefully withdraw the card.
    Notes:
    • When activating the audio/photo card reader,
    the DVD recorder should be idle, with no additional screen displays (no menu or Picture In
    Picture display).
    • Take care with the card‘s polarity / tag (see
    diagram above).
    • Keep memory cards out of reach of children. If
    swallowed, a doctor is required immediately.
    • Cards should not be touched with electrical
    contacts, or the memory may be damaged.

    * Playback cannot be guaranteed with
    memory cards that have not been tested.

    Inserting/removing
    memory cards
    It is recommended that memory cards are only inserted and removed when the unit is switched off.

    Timer recording
    This DVD recorder can be programmed so that it
    can make up to seven recordings in a month. For
    recording with nobody in attendance, the timer has
    to know which signal sources (TV stations or from
    AV devices) should be recorded, and it needs the
    start time and the inputs which define the recording length.

    Timer recordings with the ShowView ® system
    Programming timer recordings with this system
    is child‘s play. Most television schedule publications include the SHOWVIEW code numbers along
    with the information about the programmes. So
    when you want to make a timer recording of a
    programme, you only need to key in the appropriate SHOWVIEW code number. The date, start time,
    end time and station are set automatically. You
    only need to set the recording quality and specify
    whether it is to be a one-off or repeated recording.
    You can save up to seven timer programmes on the
    recorder.

    General “DV“ information

    DV messages

    You can record from an external source, e.g. a
    camcorder or video recorder connected to one of
    the recorder‘s external inputs.

    With DV (Digital Video, also known as i.LINK),
    you can use a DV cable as the audio, video, data
    and control signals input / output to connect a
    camcorder that has DV to this recorder. The i.LINK
    interface complies with the IEEE 1394-1995
    standard.
    “i.LINK” and the “i.LINK”logo are trademarks.

    When you are using the DV IN socket, the following messages may appear on the screen.

    1. The component that you wish to record from
    must be properly connected to the DVD recorder.
    Further information can be found on Page 16.
    2. Press DVD-AV/ EPG several times to select
    the external input which is to be used to make
    the recording.
    • Tuner: integrated tuner
    • AV1: EURO AV1 AUDIO VIDEO to the rear of
    the housing
    • AV2: EURO AV2 DECODER to the rear of the
    housing
    • AV3: AUDIO AV IN 3 / VIDEO IN 3 to the rear
    of the housing
    • AV4: AUDIO IN 4 / VIDEO IN 4 / S-Video IN
    to the front of the housing
    • DV: DV IN to the front of the housing.
    3. Insert a writable disc. If you insert an empty disc,
    it is first initialised automatically by the recorder
    (see page 24).
    4. Set the recording quality (see page 24).
    5. Press
    once.
    Recording begins (the red REC comes on in the
    unit‘s display window).
    Recording will go on until you press
    or
    until the disc is full.
    You can find out about specifying the length of
    the recording under “Immediate Timer Recording“ on page 43.
    6. To stop the recording press

    .

    • This recorder is only compatible with DV-format
    (DV-25) camcorders. Digital satellite tuners and
    digital VHS video recorders are not compatible.
    • You cannot connect more than one DV camcorder at a time to this recorder.
    • You cannot control this recorder with external
    devices that are connected via the DV IN socket
    (incl. two DVD recorders).
    • The camcorder connected via the DV IN socket
    cannot necessarily, in every case, be controlled.
    • Digital camcorders can usually record audio as
    16 bit/48 kHz stereo or twin stereo tracks with
    12 bit/32 kHz. This recorder can only record one
    stereo audio track. Set “Record ➜ DV sound“ as
    required or Audio 1 or Audio 2 (see page 25).
    • The sampling rate of the digital sound input to
    the DV IN socket must be either 32 or 48 kHz
    (not 44.1 kHz).
    • Recording may suffer from interference if the
    camcorder stops playing back, if a part of the
    tape that has not been recorded on is played
    back, if the electricity supply to the camcorder is
    cut off, or if the DV cable comes out.
    • When “Record DV sound“ is set to “Audio 2“
    and there is no Audio 2 signal, „Record ➜ DV
    sound“ will automatically be set to “Audio 1“.

    Not connected to camcorder
    The camcorder is not properly connected, or the
    camcorder is switched off.
    Too many devices connected
    This recorder‘s DV socket only supports the connection of one camcorder.
    Check tape
    There is no tape in the device that is connected.
    Incompatible device
    The recorder is unable to control the camcorder.
    Information is being reloaded
    The camcorder is updating data for DV.
    Camera mode
    The camcorder is set to camera mode.

    Troubleshooting
    If you are not receiving images and/or sound via
    the DV IN socket, check the following:
    The DV cable must be properly connected.
    Switch off the camcorder that is connected, and
    switch it back on.
    Tune the audio input in to the DVD recorder.
    Note: This DVD recorder cannot necessarily control
    every camcorder that is connected to it.

    Note: If your source is copy-protected by CopyGuard, you cannot use this recorder to record from
    it. Read the copyright notes on page 12.

    after recording has ended.
    • For timer recordings to work properly on this
    recorder, the digital camcorder should be
    switched on and operational.

    • The source signal must be in the DV-25 format.
    • The DVD recorder cannot control all camcorders.
    • If you use a DV cable to connect a second DVD
    recorder, you cannot use the first device to
    control the second DVD recorder.
    • You cannot use a device that is connected to
    the DV IN socket to control the DVD recorder
    remotely.
    • You cannot record the date and time information
    from a DV cassette.
    1. The digital camcorder must be connected to the
    DV IN socket at the front of the housing. Further
    information can be found on Page 16.
    2. Check that the DV audio input fulfils the necessary conditions.
    You can choose from between Audio 1 (original
    audio) and Audio 2 (overdubbed audio).

    sound“ submenu of the main menu (see page
    25).

    DV input.
    “DV“ appears in the DVD recorder‘s display
    window and on the screen.
    4. Look for the point on the camcorder tape that
    you wish to record from.
    For the best results, you should stop the playback at the point that you wish to record from.
    Depending on the camcorder, you can use the
    Stop, PLAY and PAUSE functions on the DVD
    recorder.
    5. Press
    once to start the recording.

    Title and Chapter Editing
    Original Lists and Playlists

    Adding Chapter Markers

    Creating a New Playlist

    VR
    If you edit the original lists (for titles and chapters)
    you change the content of the disc. If, for example,
    you delete a title or a chapter, the title or chapter is
    deleted from the disc.
    However, if you edit a playlist you do not change
    the content of the disc. Example: If you delete a
    title from the playlist, you are simply telling the
    DVD recorder not to play the title. However, it is
    not deleted from the disc.

    VR

    VR
    You can copy titles or chapters from the appropriate original list into a pre-selected playlist and add
    them as chapters at the end. (You can delete parts
    you do not need at a later date. See “Deleting a
    Part“ on page 55).
    However, if you add chapter markers at a later
    date to an item in the original list that has already
    been copied into a playlist, these new chapter
    markers are not automatically transferred to the
    corresponding item in the playlist.

    Titles, Chapters and Parts
    VR
    Titles in the disc‘s original content contain one or
    more chapters. If you insert a title into a playlist, all
    the chapters within that title are also transferred.
    The chapters in a playlist behave in exactly the
    same way as those on a DVD-Video disc.
    Parts are sections of original or playlist titles.
    You can add parts to a playlist via the “Title ListOriginal“ and “Chapter List-Original“ menus. You
    can also delete parts from a playlist.

    Chapter

    You can insert a chapter marker anywhere in a
    playlist or an original title during recording or
    playback.
    Once the chapters have been marked, the chapter
    search can be used and chapters can be deleted,
    combined and moved in the Chapter List-Original
    or the Chapter List-Playlist.
    You can insert up to 999 chapter markers.
    1. Play a title (original or from a playlist).
    2. Press C-SET
    at the point you want a new
    chapter to start. The above display appears on
    the screen.
    Notes:
    • Chapter markers can also be added automatically at regular intervals.
    • You can change this interval in the main menu
    “Recording ➜ Automatic Chapter“
    (see “Automatic Chapter“ on page 25).

    1. Press DISC-M/

    To find out how to call up the “Chapter List-Original“ menu, read the “The Chapter List-Original
    Menu“ on page 48.
