* Chasing Playback
You set the DVD Video Recorder to start recording at 9:00 PM, when the
show begins. The problem is that you get home at 9:25 PM, while the
program is still in progress. Before, you'd just have to wait or watch
the end first and the beginning later. Now, handy Time Slip function
lets you play the show from the beginning even as it continues recording
to the end, so you don't have to wait.
* Simultaneous Record & Play
This is especially convenient for recording a TV series. While you are
recording this week's episode, you may want to watch the one you
recorded last week. No problem. The DMR-T3030 lets you enjoy
simultaneous recording and playback, so, provided both episodes are on
the same disc, you can watch last week's episode while you record the
one for this week.
* TimeSlip Button
Just press the TimeSlip button on the remote control once during
recording to start playing back the scene recorded 30 seconds before.
You can also use the cursor keys on the main unit or the remote control
to return to any point from 1 to 360 minutes ago while watching the
playback on a small, on-screen window.
* Progressive Scan
The DMR-T3030 is equipped with a high-precision progressive video
processor that handles even the newest 30p images. This lets you enjoy
high resolution progressive playback of original DVD images.
* 12 Hours Recording (EP Mode )
You can select the recording mode that best matches what you want to
record. Or, just choose the FR (Flexible Recording) mode that lets you
record with the best picture quality possible for the recording time and
remaining space on the disc.
* High Picture Quality DVD-R Recording
With the DMR-T3030 you can create an original DVD video by recording
images onto a DVD-R disc conforming to DVD Video standards.
* Playlist Playback
You can select from among the scenes recorded on the disc and arrange
them in any order you want, to create your own original scenario, then
save it as a playlist. You can also edit the playlists that you have
created, and enjoy seamless transitions between edited scenes. (Up to 99
playlists can be created and up to 999 scenes can be registered).
* One-Touch Record & Play Function and Partial Delete & Recording
This function automatically searches for a blank section on the disc and
starts recording with a single press of the button. And playback is just
as easy. A single touch of the button locates the start of the recorded
section, and starts playing it. The system even randomly accesses areas
of the disc where parts have been deleted, and uses the disc space for a
* Direct Navigator
You can display a list of programs recorded on a disc for at-a-glance
confirmation of the disc's contents. And if you move the cursor and
click on a desired program, that program is displayed behind the list.
You can also select programs from the program list and erase them, and
you can use this function even during recording.
* Plays a variety of Discs
In addition to recording and playing DVD-RAM and DVD-R discs, the
DMR-T3030 can also play DVD-Video, music CD, CD-R, and CD-RW discs.
* Bilingual Recording
Both the main and sub audio channels of sound multiplex broadcasting
programs can be recorded.

generation copies, the DMR-T3030 will be prepared for them. (CPRM is
Content Protection for Recordable Media).
