Restrictions on copying
Some video material is copy-once protected. This means that it can be recorded to HDD, but it cannot then be freely copied again. If you want to transfer copy-once protected material from HDD to DVD, you’ll need to use a VR mode DVD-RW disc compatible with CPRM Ver. 1.1, and the following restrictions apply:
After copying a copy-once protected title to DVD it is automatically erased from the HDD. It is not therefore possible to copy a locked title that is copy-once protected.
You can identify copy-once protected material during playback by displaying disc information on-screen.
A media in NTSC format cannot be copied.
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 formatted in VR mode, and CPRM recordings can only be played on players that are specifically compatible with CPRM.
Copying between DVD and HDD is a completely digital process and therefore involves no loss of quality in the audio or video. This means that you can transfer back and forth without having to worry about the quality getting worse with each copy ‘generation’. It also means that copying can be carried out at the maximum speed possible. When copying from HDD to DVD, the speed of copying depends on the recording mode and the kind of DVD disc you’re using.
