Restrictions on video recording
You cannot record copy-protected video using this recorder. Copy-protected video includes DVD-Video
discs and some satellite broadcasts. If copy-protected material is encountered during a recording, recording
will pause or stop automatically and an error message will be displayed on-screen.
Video that is 'copy-once only' can only be recorded using a DVD-RW disc in VR mode or DVD-RAM disc
with CPRM (see below).
What is 'CPRM'?
CPRM is a copy protection system (with scramble system) only allowing the recording of 'copy once' broadcast
programs. CPRM stands for Content Protection for Recordable Media.
This Recorder is CPRM compatible, which means that you can record copy-once broadcast programs, but you
cannot then make a copy of those recordings. CPRM recordings can only be made on DVD-RW discs format-
ted in VR mode and CPRM recordings can only be played on players that are specifically compatible with
CPRM. This unit does not support a DVD-R disc with CPRM.
Recording equipment should be used only for lawful copying and you are advised to check carefully what is
lawful copying in the area in which you are making a copy. Copying of copyright material such as films or
music is unlawful unless permitted by a legal exception or consented to by the rights owner.
