    Instruction manuals are usually very dry because they tend to be highly technical and are often
    poorly translated. I have therefore been employed by Philips to help you.

    Welcome to the growing family of owners of PHILIPS equipment.
    Thank you for buying a DVDR 890/001-021 .
    Please take the time to read this operating manual before using your DVD recorder. It contains
    important information on how to set up and operate the machine.
    The machine should not be placed in a warm room immediately after transport from a cold
    room or vice versa. The machine should not be switched on if humidity is very high.
    Wait at least three hours after transporting the machine. The DVD recorder needs this time
    to acclimatise to its new environment (temperature, relative humidity, etc.).
    Your Philips team hopes your
    new DVD recorder will bring you
    many years of enjoyment.

    What is a DVD?
    DVD (Digital Versatile Disc) is a new storage medium that combines the
    convenience of the compact disc with the latest digital video technology. DVD
    video uses modern MPEG2 data compression technology that enables an
    entire feature film to be stored on a single five inch disc.
    How good is the resolution of DVD compared with VHS?
    The razor-sharp digital images have a resolution of more than 500 lines of 720
    pixels per line. This is more than twice as high as VHS and is even better than
    the laser disc. Its picture quality is easily comparable to the digital masters
    produced in recording studios.
    What can DVD+RW do?
    DVD+ReWritable uses phase change media, the same technology on which
    rewritable CDs are based. A high-performance laser is used to change the
    reflective properties of the recording layer; this process can be repeated more
    than a thousand times.
    What can the DVD+R do?
    DVD+R (write-once DVD). Unlike a DVD+RW disc, this disc can only be
    written to once. If it is not finalized after a recording, further recordings can
    be added to it. Old recordings can be later deleted but they can no longer be
    overwritten. The deleted recordings (titles) are marked 'Deleted title'.
    Before this disc can be played in a DVD player, it must be finalised in the
    DVD recorder. Once this process is complete, no further recordings can be
    added.
    What can my DVD recorder do?
    Your Philips DVD recorder is a machine for recording and playing back digital
    video discs with "two-way" compatibility with the universal DVD video
    standard. This means:
    •) existing DVD video discs can be played on the recorder.
    •) recordings made on your DVD recorder can be played on other DVD
    video players and DVD ROM drives.

    Regional code
    Since DVD films are not normally released in all parts of the world at the same time, all DVD
    players have a specific regional code. Discs can be given an optional regional code. If the regional
    codes differ between the player and the disc, playback is not possible.
    DVDs must have the 'ALL' identifier for all regions or '2' for Region 2 for them to play in this
    machine. If a different region is printed on the DVD you will not be able to play it in this DVD
    recorder.
    The number inside the globe indicates a region of the world.
    Regional code 2 includes:
    Japan, Europe, South Africa, Middle East (incl. Egypt).

    When installing the recorder in a cupboard ensure there is a gap of approximately 2.5 cm (1
    inch) around the recorder to enable air to circulate freely and prevent overheating.
    Make sure that air can circulate freely through the ventilation slots on the machine. The machine
    should be placed on a firm surface.
    Make sure that no objects or liquids enter the DVD recorder. Do not place vases or similar on
    the DVD recorder. If you spill liquid in the recorder, immediately disconnect it from the power
    supply and call after-sales service for advice.
    Keep the DVD recorder away from radiators and other heat sources and protect from direct
    sunlight.
    Do not place any combustible objects on the device (candles, etc.).
    Make sure that children do not place any foreign objects in the openings.

    Cleaning the discs
    Some malfunctions (frozen or distorted picture and broken sound for example) are due to dirt
    on the disc. To avoid such problems you should clean your discs regularly.
    1

    Dirty discs should be cleaned with a soft cloth. Always wipe from the
    middle to the edge.

    2

    Do not use any solvents such as benzine, thinners, commercially
    available cleaning agents or antistatic sprays designed for vinyl records.
    Can I use a CD lens cleaner in the DVD recorder?
    Since the optical unit (laser) of the DVD recorder operates at a higher power
    level than the ones in normal DVD and CD players, such CD lens cleaner
    discs may actually damage the optical unit (laser).
    Therefore, refrain from using a CD lens cleaner disc!

    Special functions of your new DVD
    recorder
    Your PHILIPSDVD recorder has a number of special functions to make it easier to use and to
    enhance your enjoyment.

    Philips provides the best possible connection between your DVD recorder and other home
    cinema equipment.
    The DVD recorder will be controled by external devices (receivers, TV sets and so on) via Cinema
    Link and automatically set to the right system settings.
    This function automatically transfers all the television channel settings onto your DVD recorder
    via the scart cable (socket EXT 1 TO TV-I/O ).

    Introduction

    Recordings made on your DVD recorder can be controlled from an external satellite receiver.

    This connector is also known as a 'FireWire' or 'IEEE 1394'. This connector is used to transmit
    wide digital broadband signals that are used for digital video camcorders. Audio and video signals
    are transmitted using a cable. In addition to DV and Hi8 camcorders, PCs with digital video output
    can also be connected to the digital input.
    Using the virtual surround process, a room with two speakers is simulated. The signal is
    processed so that the impression of a room is created. The process used in this DVD recorder
    is based on TruSurround technology from SRS Labs.
    TruSurround and the SRS symbol are trademarks of SRS Labs., Inc. TruSurround Technology is
    used under license from SRS Labs.,Inc.
    This screen provides you with an overview of the inserted disc. Each index screen represents a
    recording. On the right hand side of the screen you can also see a disc indicator that shows the
    position and length of the current recording on the disc in a graphic format.
    This function enables you to simply delete commercials or other scenes. The relevant scenes are
    marked and skipped as required. This information is stored on the DVD in such a way that
    other DVD players will skip the scenes.
    MP3 files are highly compressed music files. The data is compressed to 1/10 of the volume of the
    original audio material using a special process. This means that 10 hours of music can be stored on
    a single CD.
    These music CDs can be played on this machine.
    Normally a recording is made at the current disc position. This is the same as for a video
    cassette, in the middle of the tape for example. By holding down the REC/OTR n button, the
    recording will be made at the end of all the other recordings to avoid overwriting previous
    recordings.
    New recordings on a DVD+R disc will always be added at the end of all existing recordings.
    Using your DVD recorder you can record from an RGB source such as a satellite receiver using a
    SCART input (socket EXT 2 AUX I/O ). Video signals for the colours R(Red), G(Green) and
    B(Blue) are transmitted via separate channels. This reduces the interference that occurs with
    standard video cables.
    The Philips DVD recorder can play back pre-recorded DVDs and CDs. DVDs recorded using
    this DVD recorder can be played back on current and future DVD players.

    Connecting the DVD recorder

    The remote control and its batteries are packed separately in the original DVD recorder
    packaging. You must install the batteries in the remote control before use - described in the
    following section.
    1

    Take the remote control of the DVD recorder and the enclosed
    batteries (2 batteries).

    2

    Open the battery compartment, insert the batteries as shown and
    then close the battery compartment.

    The remote control is now ready to use.
    Its range is approximately 5 to 10 meters.

    'Aim' correctly
    In the following sections, you will need the remote control for the first time.
    Always point the front of the remote control at the DVD recorder and not at
    the TV set.

    Tip

    Connecting your DVD recorder to the TV
    set
    The necessary cable connections must be made before you can record or playback TV
    programmes using your DVD recorder.
    Connect the DVD recorder directly to your TV set. If there is a video recorder in between
    the picture quality may be poor because of the copy protection system built into the DVD
    recorder.
    We recommend that you use a scart cable to connect your TV set and DVD recorder.

    What is a scart cable?
    The scart or Euro AV cable serves as the universal connector for picture,
    sound and control signals. With this type of connection, there is practically no
    loss of quality in picture or sound transmission.

    When you install your DVD recorder for the first time, select one of the following options:
    'Connecting with a scart cable and Easy Link'
    If your TV set is equipped with 'Easy Link, Cinema Link, NexTView Link, Q-Link, Smart Link,
    Megalogic, Datalogic, ...' and you wish to use a scart cable.

    What is Easy Link?
    If your TV set is equipped with functions such as Easy Link, Cinema Link,
    NexTView Link, Q-Link, Smart Link, Megalogic or Datalogic, which are fully
    compatible with one another (TV set, DVD recorder, etc.), your DVD
    recorder can exchange information with your TV set. Please see your TV's
    operating instructions.

    ?

    'Connecting with a scart cable without Easy Link'
    If your TV set is not equipped with 'Easy Link, Cinema Link, NexTView Link, Q-Link, Smart Link,,
    Megalogic, Datalogic, ...' and you wish to use a scart cable.
    'Connecting with an S Video (Y/C) cable'
    If your TV set is equipped with an S-Video (SVHS) socket.

    What is an 'S Video (Y/C) cable'?
    This connecting cable, also known as the SVHS cable, is used to transmit the
    brightness signal (Y signal) and colour signal (C signal) separately. This mini
    DIN socket/plug is also called a Hosiden socket/plug.

    ?

    'Connecting with video (CVBS) cable'
    If your TV set is equipped only with a video (CVBS) socket.

    What is 'Video (CVBS)'?
    This socket, usually referred to as the Cinch socket, is used for transmitting
    the composite video signal (FBAS, CVBS). In this method of transmission the
    colour signal and the brightness signal are transmitted on the same cable. In
    certain circumstances, this can lead to problems with the picture, such as
    'Moiré' patterns.

    socket. You will then see the picture from the additional device on your TV set, even if the
    DVD recorder is switched off.
    The TV/DVD button on the remote control allows you to switch between playback through the
    EXT 2 AUX I/O scart socket and playback from the DVD recorder.

    Connecting additional video recorders
    You can connect a video recorder to the EXT 2 AUX I/O socket. If you have an SVHS video
    recorder you can additionally use the OUT S-VIDEO (Y/C) socket and the OUT L AUDIO
    R sockets.
    Please note:
    Most pre-recorded video cassettes and DVDs are copy-protected. If you try to copy them you
    will see the message 'COPY PROT' on the DVD recorder's display.
    a When copying video cassettes the display on the DVD recorder
    shows 'NO SIGNAL'.
    b Check that the scart cable is plugged in firmly.
    b The DVD recorder may not be able to recognise the video input signal if
    this signal is poor or does not comply with relevant standards.
    a When I copy DVD video discs or pre recorded video cassettes the
    picture is fuzzy and the brightness varies
    b This happens if you try to copy DVDs or video cassettes that have been
    copy-protected. Even though the picture on the TV is fine the recording on
    a DVD+R(W) is faulty. This interference is unavoidable with copy-protected
    DVDs or video cassettes.

    Good Picture Quality
    If you have a camcorder that only has a single video output (Composite Video, CVBS), connect
    the VIDEO input on the DVD recorder to the appropriate output on the camcorder.
    You must also connect the audio input left AUDIO right on the DVD recorder to the audio
    output on the camcorder.

    Connecting audio devices to the analogue
    audio sockets
    Two analogue audio sockets OUT L AUDIO R (audio signal output left/right) are located at the

    These can be used to connect the following:
    •) a receiver with Dolby Surround Pro Logic
    •) a receiver with two channel analogue stereo

    Can I use the 'Phono' input on my amplifier?
    This socket (input) on the amplifier is designed only for record players

    •) an A/V receiver or an A/V amplifier with a digital multi channel sound decoder
    •) a receiver with two channel digital stereo (PCM)

    Digital multi channel sound ?
    Digital multi-channel sound offers the best possible sound quality. You will
    need a multi-channel A/V receiver or amplifier that supports at least one of
    the audio formats of the DVD recorder (MPEG2, Dolby Digital and DTS).
    Consult the operating instructions for your receiver to find out which audio
    formats it supports.

    Installing your DVD recorder
    Initial installation

    ENGLISH

    After successfully connecting your DVD recorder to the TV set and other additional devices as
    described in the previous chapter, this chapter will show you how to start the initial installation.
    The DVD recorder automatically seeks out and stores all available TV channels.
    Aim correctly with the remote control
    In the following sections, you will need the remote control for the first time.
    Aim the remote control at the DVD recorder and not at the TV set.
    Connecting additional devices
    If you have connected additional devices such as a satellite receiver to the
    aerial cable, switch them on. The automatic channel search will recognise it
    and save it.
    No aerial connected
    Even if you only want to use the DVD recorder to play back or have only
    connected a satellite receiver, you must still complete the initial installation.
    This is necessary so that the basic settings are stored correctly. Once initial
    installation is complete you can use the DVD recorder as normal.

    Programming a recording (TIMER)

    Use programmed recording (TIMER) to automatically start and stop a recording at a later date.
    The DVD recorder will switch to the right program number and begin recording at the correct
    time.
    With this DVD recorder, you can pre-program up to 6 recordings within a period of one
    month.
    To make a programmed recording, your DVD recorder needs to know:
    * the date you want to make the recording
    * the program number of the TV channel
    * the start and stop time of the recording
    * VPS or PDC on or off
    * the recording mode ('HQ/SP/SP+/LP/EP/EP+') .
    This information is saved in a TIMER block.

    What is 'VPS/PDC'?
    With 'VPS' (Video Programming System)/ 'PDC'(Programme Delivery Control)
    the TV station controls the start and duration of TV channel recordings. If a
    TV programme starts earlier or ends later than was scheduled, the DVD
    recorder will still switch itself on and off and the correct times.
    What do I need to know about 'VPS/PDC'?
    Usually the start time is the same as the VPS or PDC time. But if your TV
    guide gives a VPS or PDC time which is different from the programme's start
    time, e.g. '20.15 (VPS/PDC 20.14)', you must enter the VPS/PDC time
    '20.14' exact to the minute as the start time.
    If you want to programme a time that is different from the VPS or PDC time,
    you must switch off VPS or PDC.
    Only one TV programme on a TV channel can be controlled using 'VPS/PDC'
    at a time. If you want to record two or more TV programmes on a TV
    channel using 'VPS/PDC', you will need to programme these as two separate
    recordings.

    Films on pre-recorded DVD discs may contain scenes not suitable for children. Therefore, some
    discs may contain 'Parental Control' rating information that applies to the entire disc or to
    certain scenes on the disc.
    The appropriate scenes have filter values that reach from 1-8. If such a scene is detected during
    playback, the filter value set on the DVD recorder is compared to the scene. If the filter value is
    higher than the setting, an alternative scene will be played (if available).

    digital output

    SOLUTION
    bThe DVD recorder is connected to the 'Phono-input' of your amplifier: This socket is provided

    only for record players without a preamplifier. Select a different audio input.

    bThe TV system of the disc does not match that of your TV set (PAL/NTSC).
    bThe recording can be made in colour only when the TV channels or the connected additional

    device send a colour signal. Black-and-white signals containing no color information (colour
    subcarriers) cannot be recorded.
    bCheck whether the sound settings match the selected inputs and connected additional devices.
    bCheck whether you have inserted an MP3 CD: In accordance with SDMI (Secure Digital Music

    Initiative), the digital audio output is turned off during MP3 playback. This is not a defect of your
    DVD recorder.

    Warning!
    There is a risk that you can no longer play the disc on other DVD players after this procedure.
    Therefore, apply this function with particular care.

    Other disc errors

    following function. This will only prepare the disc for erasing. It will not be erased, however, until
    the recording has been completed.
