Olympus VN-741 PC 4GB Voice Recorder

• Mono Audio Recorder
• Up to 1040 Hours Recording Time (LP)
• 4 GB Built-in Memory
• Built in USB Connector
• Battery Life up to 110 Hours
• Automatic Recording Level Adjustment

As an excellent entry-level device the VN-741PC offers fine MP3 recording quality and 4GB memory enabling an outstanding recording time of more than 1040 hours in LP mode. As well as featuring probably the best low-noise microphone in it's class for superior sound reproduction, it also has a high-speed built in direct USB for organising and archiving recordings on a PC or Mac, or sharing them via e-mail – and all this with great ease. And the benefits don’t stop here either. They include the low-cut filter for noise reduction while recording, the Scene Select and Automatic Recording (VCVA) features and 99 Index Marks – all designed for maximum user-friendliness. With the addition of a new "Simple" Mode, operation becomes as easy as it gets even for beginners. Battery life on just two AAA batteries is up to 110 hours.

Can you please explain the Scene Select and Automatic Recording option. Is it possible to have it record when someone starts talking then stop when there's no sound?
