Note for VCR to DVD duplication

  • After starting VCR to DVD duplication, the picture may be distorted because of the auto tracking function. This is not a malfunction.

  • This unit will automatically stop the duplication if playback with no image is detected for more than 3 minutes during VCR to DVD duplication
  • Playback sound mode of the dubbed contents is determined by the playback sound mode of the VCR at the point of dubbing
