General about connection

Picture and sound

Digital TV is a transmission technology that replaces the traditional analogue

This means that several TV channels, radio channels and other digital services
can be transmitted on the same space as just one analogue channel.
As a consumer you get access to many more channels and services with
perfect picture and audio quality.

Connecting your recorder is just as simple as connecting an old VCR recorder.
And by using a HDMI cable for connection you get the best picture quality to
your TV-set. The best audio experience can be obtained by connecting an
optical cable to your sound system.


Before buying this product it is anticipated that you have made sure that there
are digital transmissions covering your region.

Antenna / Signal source

You may decide to connect your DVD recorder to an indoor arial or an external
arial. Either of the two can give you variances on the signal strength. If you live
in a flat you should make sure that the digital terrestrial signals are distributed to
your wall antenna outlet. If you have your own antenna system you must make
sure that it is equipped with antennas, filter and/or amplifier that can handle
those frequencies that the digital channels are transmitted on.


Please observe that this recorder is not designed for the reception of regular
digital cable-TV signals (QAM-signal). Despite this, operators of smaller cable
networks may have chosen to distribute the digital terrestrial signals (COFDM-
signal) in the network. In this case this recorder may be used.

Component connection

Connect one end of the component(Y PB PR) cable to the COMPONENT OUT-
PUT jack on the DVD recorder and other end to the COMPONENT INPUT jack
on your TV.
Connect one end of the audio cables (red and white) to the analog AUDIO
OUTPUT jack on the DVD recorder and other end to the AUDIO INPUT jack on
your TV.

If your television is a high-definition or “digital ready” television, you may take
advantage of the unit’s progressive scan output for the highest video resolution
possible. If your TV does not accept the Progressive Scan format, the picture
will appear scrambled with the progressive signal.
Set the resolution to 576p using the RES. button on the front panel of the DVD
recorder to obtain the 576p progressive signal.
