General Information
About DVDs
A DVD Digital Versatile Disc is a digital medium for storing
DVDs are marked with one of the symbols shown here.
There are different types of DVD with different storage capacities
depending on how the information is stored.

information.

DVD Structure
Video DVDs are divided into titles and chapters. A DVD may contain
several
titles, which may in turn be made up of several chapters. The titles and
chapters are each numbered sequentially

The first title of a DVD usually comprises license details and manufacturer's
information. The next title is usually the film itself. Other
titles may include such items as "making of" documentaries, film previews or
information on the actors.

Regional Codes
For reasons connected with global DVD sales strategy, a code has been
developed for DVDs that allows the recording to be played only on devices
purchased in a particular region.
This code is based on a system that divides the world into six
regions. As Europe is in Zone 2, your DVD player will only play
DVDs that have the regional code 2. The regional code is printed
on the DVD packaging (refer to the following logo).
Apart from DVDs with the regional code 2 the unit will only play

DVDs with the regional code 0 (suitable for any DVD player).
If you have problems when playing certain DVDs make sure that the
DVD has the regional code 2 or 0.

MPEG4
MPEG4 is a compression technology for multimedia/video data ("MPEG" =
"Moving Picture Experts Group").

NTSC and PAL


NTSC and PAL are television standards for depicting frames on the TV. This
is because in contrast to cinema films, which are shown on the projector
lens with 24 images per second on a strip of film the image on TV and
video must also be divided into frames so that the human eye can perceive
a moving picture.
NTSC (National Television System Committee) works with a 60 Hz image
frequency, i.e. 60 frames per second are displayed, and this corresponds
to 30 full images. NTSC is used in the US and Japan and produces 525 TV
lines.
PAL (Phase Alteration Line), in contrast, works with a 50 Hz image
frequency (although there are now also PAL standards with 60Hz), this
produces 25 full images made up of 50 frames per second. PAL is the TV
standard that is used throughout Europe (except France where the
standard is SECAM), Australia, China, Singapore and Malaysia. It produces
625 TV lines.

Connections stereo (depends on device)


Connecting the aerial cable
If you connect the DVD/HDD recorder to a TV
you must create an aerial connection between the TV, DVD/HDD
recorder and aerial so that the device can receive and record TV
programmes.
The following connection examples require an aerial connection and
only image and sound transfer types to the TV or external devices
have been listed.
Connect the aerial cable that leads to the wall socket to the aerial input
(ANTENNA IN) on the DVD/HDD recorder.
Connect a second aerial cable (e. g. the one supplied) to the aerial input
(ANTENNA IN) on the television and the aerial output (ANTENNA
OUT) on the DVD/HDD recorder

Connecting the TV With a SCART cable


The SCART cable is the simplest connection between the DVD/HDD
recorder and the TV.
As long as your television can process RGB signals you will get a very good
quality image from this option.
Select the relevant
SCART input for
this connection to
your TV

31

With S-VIDEO and audio cinch cable


If your TV does not have a SCART connection you can also connect it to the S-VIDEO output via an
S-VIDEO cable (S-VIDEO OUT) on the DVD/HDD recorder. This will provide good image quality.
To transfer the sound you can use an audio cinch cable (red/white) or the AV audio cable supplied
(red/white).

With cinch (AV) cables


If your TV has neither a SCART connection nor a S-VIDEO socket you can also connect the DVD/HDD
recorder with an audio cinch cable (red/white) and a video cinch cable (yellow) to the AUDIO/VIDEO IN
socket of the TV (AUDIO OUT/VIDEO OUT socket on the DVD/HDD recorder).

32

About the component connections


If your television has a "Progressive Scan" function the best image quality
will be achieved via the component outputs (Y, CB/PB, Cr/Pr on the rear of
the device). An increased image frequency is created using the Progressive
Scan procedure. This reduces flickering images to a minimum and displays
movements in a more fluid manner.
It goes without saying that your TV must be able to process this format for
it to be used. The Progressive Scan transfer only works when connecting
the component connections (COMPONENT VIDEO OUT) with a
three-pole component cable (red/blue/green). The PROGRESSIVE SCAN
does not work with a SCART connection.
To transfer the sound you can again use the audio cinch cable (red/white):

To playback the Progressive Scan image you have to press the NTSC/PAL
button on the remote control to select the Progressive Scan format.
You can only select this format if the YCrCb On menu option is activated in the SETUP > VIDEO > Video
Output menu.
Only activate this point if your TV has the "Progressive Scan" function
otherwise the picture goes black.
Instead of the TV you can also connect a projector, for example.

33

Connecting another external audio or video device


Connecting an audio device
You can also connect another audio device, such as a minidisc player or cassette recorder, to the
DVD/HDD recorder, e.g. to record the sound from this device to the DVD/HDD recorder. To do so
connect an audio cinch cable (red/white) to the external device's AUDIO OUT socket and the
audio socket (AV1 IN) on the DVD/HDD recorder.

Connecting video devices


You can also use your DVD/HDD recorder to record signals from another video device, such as a SAT
receiver, video camera, video recorder or DVD player. To do so connect the external video device to the
SCART input on the DVD/HDD recorder (DECODER):

You can also connect a decoder or set-top box (e. g. a Canal+ decoder) to the SCART input. To do so set
the DECODER entry in the SETUP>CHANNEL SETUP menu to ON (Decoder,Page 22).

TROUBLESHOOTING
If errors occur, check first whether you can correct the problem yourself.
The following overview may help you.

POSSIBLE CAUSE / REMEDY


Firstly carry out initial setup as the buttons on the front of the device are
locked until this has been carried out.
Check the mains connection: Is the plug firmly inserted in the mains
socket?

STANDBY/ON on the remote control or device.


Press
If the device has been disturbed by a storm, static charge or other
external factor try the following:
Press STANDBY/ON on the device (Standby mode). Then pull out the
mains cable and plug it back in.
Is the disc inserted with the title (printed) side facing upwards?
Check whether the disc is damaged by trying another disc. If the disc is
dirty, clean it carefully, wiping it from the centre to the edge with a soft
dry cloth.
Does the inserted disc have a format that can not be played?
For commercial DVDs: Does the DVD have the correct regional code ?
If condensation has formed in the device: give the player
one to two hours to dry off.
Check whether the batteries need changing and have been inserted
correctly. Remove anything which may be blocking the signal between
the infrared transmitter, the remote control and the device's sensor.
Is the distance between the remote control and the player too great (over
7m)?
Are the cable connections between the DVD and television
correct and undamaged?
Is the television switched on?
Have you selected the video channel on the television?
Has the correct function been selected (DVD)?
Have you selected the correct video output on the DVD player?
To restore the picture connect the video cinch output of the DVD
recorder to the video cinch input of the TV (yellow cinch plug) and if
necessary set the correct input on the TV.
Then in VIDEO-SETUP select RGB On again.
Do you need to carry out the channel scan again?

Distorted picture

Check whether the DVD is dirty and if necessary clean it carefully, wiping it from
the centre to the edge with a soft, dry cloth. Slight picture distortion is not a
malfunction.
Your DVD's standard may not match that of your TV (NTSC/PAL button).
A video output signal has been selected that the TV does not support

(NTSC/PAL-button).
