  As described above, when program data having a program title similar to the program title of the program data selected by the user to be dubbed from the HD 20a to the DVD 19a is recorded on the DVD 19a, the control unit 10 is shown in FIG. Such a screen is displayed on the monitor device 3, for example, and dubbing processing of the selected program data from the HD 20a to the DVD 19a is started. Specifically, the control unit 10 reads program data selected by the user from the HD 20 a by the HDD 20, and inputs the read program data to the DVD drive 19 via the recording / playback unit 18. Thereby, the recording apparatus 1 can dubb the program data selected by the user onto the DVD 19a. When the program data is dubbed to the DVD 19a by the DVD drive 19, the program information of the program data dubbed to the DVD 19a is registered in the DVD recording management table stored in the DVD 19a.

  On the other hand, when the control unit 10 cannot retrieve from the DVD recording management table a program title similar to the program title of the program data selected by the user for dubbing from the HD 20a to the DVD 19a, that is, to the program title of the selected program data. When the program data of the similar program title is not recorded on the DVD 19a, a notification screen as shown in FIG. 4C is displayed on the monitor device 3, for example, to ask the execution of dubbing to the mounted DVD 19a. It operates as a notification means for notification.

  In the notification screen shown in FIG. 4 (c), the user can start the dubbing process of the already selected program data to the DVD 19a by operating the enter key of the remote control device 1a, and operate the clear key. By doing so, the dubbing process to the DVD 19a can be stopped. Therefore, the control unit 10 has received an instruction as to whether or not the dubbing process of the selected program data from the HD 20a to the DVD 19a is performed, and when the determination key is operated on this notification screen, the control unit 10 displays FIG. A screen as shown is displayed on the monitor device 3, for example, and dubbing processing of the selected program data from the HD 20a to the DVD 19a is started.

  When the clear key is operated on the notification screen shown in FIG. 4C, the control unit 10 accepts an instruction not to perform dubbing processing of the selected program data from the HD 20a to the DVD 19a, and the selected program data The dubbing process from the HD 20a to the DVD 19a is stopped, and the mounted DVD 19a is ejected. Specifically, the controller 10 ejects the mounting tray on which the DVD 19a is mounted from the recording device 1 by appropriately driving the drive motor of the mounting unit.

  When the DVD 19a is ejected, the user attaches a different DVD 19a to the recording apparatus 1 again, and the control unit 10 stores program data having a program title similar to the program title of the program data selected to be dubbed from the HD 20a to the DVD 19a. Then, it is searched whether the DVD 19a is re-recorded.

  The control unit 10 is similar to the program title of the program data selected to be dubbed from the HD 20a to the DVD 19a until the rewritable DVD is loaded or until a blank DVD is loaded. The process is repeated until the DVD 19a on which the program data of the program title is recorded is mounted or until the user instructs to start the dubbing process.

  In addition, when starting the dubbing process, the control unit 10 operates as a detection unit that detects the remaining recordable capacity of the DVD 19a mounted as a dubbing destination. Then, the control unit 10 can copy the selected program data to the DVD 19a based on the recording time, recording magnification, etc. of the program data selected to be dubbed from the HD 20a to the DVD 19a and the remaining capacity of the DVD 19a. It is determined whether there is any, and if it is determined that the selected program data can be dubbed to the DVD 19a, the dubbing process is started. When the control unit 10 determines that the selected program data cannot be dubbed to the DVD 19a, for example, the control unit 10 displays a message such as “dubbing is not possible because the remaining capacity of the DVD is insufficient” on the monitor device 3. Notify the user.

  Hereinafter, a dubbing process of program data from the HD 20a to the DVD 19a by the recording apparatus 1 having the above-described configuration will be described with reference to a flowchart. FIG. 5 is a flowchart showing the procedure of the dubbing process performed by the recording apparatus 1 according to the present invention. Note that the processing procedure shown below is an example, and the present invention is not limited to this. Further, the following processing is executed by the control unit 10 in accordance with a control program stored in the ROM 11 in advance.

  The user who wants to dubb the program data recorded on the HD 20a onto the DVD 19a attaches the desired DVD 19a as a dubbing destination to the recording device 1, and operates a predetermined key on the remote control device 1a to copy the data from the HD 20a to the DVD 19a. Instructs execution of processing. Specifically, the user operates the predetermined key of the remote control device 1a in the HDD recording list as shown in FIG. 4A to execute the dubbing process of the desired program data from the HD 20a to the DVD 19a. Instruct.

  In the recording device 1 in which execution of the dubbing process from the HD 20a to the DVD 19a is instructed by the user, the control unit 10 first determines whether or not the DVD 19a loaded by the user is a write-once DVD (S1). When it is determined that the DVD is a write-once type DVD (S1: YES), it is determined whether the mounted DVD 19a is a blank DVD (S2). When the control unit 10 determines that the mounted DVD 19a is not a blank DVD (S2: NO), the recording information in which the program title of the program data selected to be dubbed by the user is registered in the HD recording management table is recorded. (S3).

  The control unit 10 determines that the DVD 19a loaded in step S1 is not a write-once DVD (S1: NO), or determines that the DVD 19a loaded in step S2 is a blank DVD (S2). : YES), the process proceeds to step S8. Next, the control unit 10 searches the DVD recording management table stored in the DVD 19a for a title similar to the title extracted from the HD recording management table recorded in the HD 20a (S4). Specifically, the first half of the extracted title is used as a search keyword, a forward matching search is performed on the recording information registered in the DVD recording management table to determine whether there is a similar title (S5). .

  When it is determined that there is no similar title (S5: NO), the control unit 10 displays a notification screen as shown in FIG. 4C on the monitor device 3, and program data with a similar title is recorded on the DVD 19a. Notifying that the recording is not performed, and notifying the execution of dubbing to the mounted DVD 19a (S6). If the control unit 10 determines that there is a similar title (S5: YES), the control unit 10 proceeds to step S8.

  The control unit 10 determines whether or not the enter key is operated on the notification screen shown in FIG. 4C (S7), and determines that the enter key is not operated (S7: NO), that is, When the clear key is operated on the notification screen shown in FIG. 4C, the dubbing process from the HD 20a to the DVD 19a is stopped, and the mounted DVD 19a is ejected (S11).

  When it is determined that the enter key is operated on the notification screen shown in FIG. 4C (S7: YES), the control unit 10 detects the remaining recordable capacity of the mounted DVD 19a (S8), and from the HD 20a Based on the recording time and recording magnification of the program data selected to be dubbed to the DVD 19a and the remaining capacity of the DVD 19a, it is determined whether or not the selected program data can be dubbed to the DVD 19a (S9). ).

  When the control unit 10 determines that the selected program data can be dubbed to the DVD 19a (S9: YES), the program data selected by the user is read from the HD 20a by the HDD 20 and the read program data is passed through the recording / playback unit 18. Then, the data is input to the DVD drive 19 to be dubbed to the DVD 19a by the DVD drive 19 (S12). On the other hand, when the control unit 10 determines that the selected program data cannot be dubbed to the DVD 19a (S9: NO), the control unit 10 stops the dubbing process from the HD 20a to the DVD 19a and dubbes because the remaining capacity of the DVD 19a is insufficient. The fact that it is not possible is notified (S10), and the loaded DVD 19a is ejected (S11).

  In this way, when the program data recorded on the HD 20a is dubbed to the DVD 19a, a search is made as to whether program data having a title similar to the title of the program data selected by the user as a dubbing target is recorded on the DVD 19a. When it is desired to record program data related to the same DVD 19a, erroneous dubbing to the DVD 19a can be prevented.

  In the embodiment described above, the HDD recording list for selecting the program data to be dubbed from the HD 20a to the DVD 19a is configured to display the program information of the program data recorded on the HD 20a as shown in FIG. As described above, for example, a thumbnail image of each program data recorded on the HD 20a may be displayed. Also, for each program data recorded on the HD 20a, processing information indicating whether or not the reproduction processing on the monitor device 3 or the dubbing processing to the DVD 19a has been performed is registered in the recording management table, and is stored in the HDD recording list. Further, it may be configured to display whether or not each program data has been subjected to reproduction processing or dubbing processing. By using such an HDD recording list, a user who selects program data to be dubbed from the HD 20a to the DVD 19a can find out desired program data more easily.

  The recording device 1 of the above-described embodiment is configured to search whether the program data of the program title similar to the program title of the program data selected to be dubbed from the HD 20a to the DVD 19a is recorded on the DVD 19a. A search process based on the recording day of the program data and the recording start time or the broadcast channel may be performed. Specifically, the control unit 10 extracts the recording start date / time of the program data selected by the user from the recording information registered in the HD recording management table, and uses the day of the week and the time at the extracted recording start date / time as a search keyword. Then, the recording information registered in the DVD recording management table stored in the DVD 19a is searched.

  As a result, even when a DVD 19a not recording program data having the same recording day and recording time of the program data selected to be dubbed from the HD 20a to the DVD 19a is mounted on the recording device 1, Since it is possible to reconfirm whether or not to perform dubbing, for example, when a program broadcast every week at a predetermined time on a predetermined day of the week, such as a continuous drama, is to be dubbed to the same DVD 19a, erroneous dubbing to the DVD 19a is prevented. can do.

  In the above-described embodiment, when the DVD 19a attached to the recording device 1 is a write-once DVD, whether program data having a program title similar to the program title of the program data selected by the user is recorded on the DVD 19a. However, the same search process may be performed when the rewritable DVD 19a is mounted in the recording apparatus 1. Further, the removable recording medium in the recording apparatus 1 is not limited to the DVD.

  In the above-described embodiment, when the program data having a program title similar to the program title of the program data selected to be dubbed from the HD 20a to the DVD 19a is not recorded on the DVD 19a, the DVD 19a mounted at this time is loaded. In the above description, the instruction for whether or not to perform dubbing is received from the user. However, the DVD 19a is ejected when it is determined that the program data of a similar program title is not recorded on the DVD 19a without receiving such an instruction. It is good also as composition to do.

  Furthermore, in the above-described embodiment, as shown in FIG. 4A, an example in which only a program with the title “XYZ drama episode 2” is selected as program data to be dubbed from the HD 20a to the DVD 19a has been described. Can be selected at once. In this case, search processing based on the titles of the selected programs may be performed, and further, dubbing to the DVD 19a among the selected programs is possible based on the remaining capacity of the DVD 19a that is the dubbing destination. A program can be specified and notified to the user.
