USING OPTIONAL AUDIO/VIDEO OUTPUT JACKS

If your TV has A/V input jacks, you may connect your VCR’s AUDIO/VIDEO OUTPUT jacks to the audio/video input jacks on back of your TV.

Direct audio/video connections usually result in a better picture and sound quality for tape playback. Please see your TV’s owner’s manual for A/V input connections.

USING AUDIO/VIDEO INPUT JACKS

You can use the A/V input jacks on the front or the back of the VCR.

1)When you connect the external source to input jacks on the back of the VCR, select "L1" position for recording by pressing the 0, 0, 1 on the remote control or CHANNEL Up/Down button.

2)When you connect the external source to input jacks on the front of the VCR, select "L2" position for recording by pressing the 0, 0, 2 on the remote control or CHANNEL Up/Down button.

Note: "L1" or "L2" is found before the lowest memorized channel. (Example: CH2)

Note to CATV system installer

This reminder is provided to call the CATV system installer’s attention to Article 820-40of the NEC that provides guidelines for proper grounding and, in particular, specifies that the cable ground shall be connected to the grounding system of the building, as close to the point of cable entry as practical.

SETTING THE CH3/CH4

SWITCH

If your TV does not have A/V terminals:

When the VCR is in the Playback mode or when the VCR is in the VCR position, your TV will receive signals from the VCR on either channel 3 or 4.

To use the VCR with your TV, set the selector switch to CH3 or CH4 (which is located

in the back of your VCR), whichever is not used for nor-

mal broadcasts in your area. Then set your TV to the same

channel.

5 Begin channel preset

by pressing the F.FWD button once. The tuner scans and memorizes all active channels in your area.

The VCR distinguishes between standard TV channels and cable channels.

AUTO SET UP

6 After scanning, the tuner stops on the lowest memorized channel. The TV screen returns to TV mode.

If "AUTO SET UP" appears on the TV screen again, check the cable connections. Press the F.FWD button once again and the VCR will begin preset again.

AUTOMATIC CHANNEL SET UP

You can automatically program the tuner to scan only the channels you receive in your area.

Channel memory programming is NOT needed when you connected the VCR to a cable box or satellite box as in "Basic connections" on page 6. In this case, select the VCR and TV to channel 3 or 4 the same channel as the CH3 or CH4 switch on the back of the VCR. Then, the channel you want to record or view may be selected at the cable box or satellite box.

Follow the steps below once. Repeat it only if there is a power failure or if the VCR is unplugged for more than 30 seconds. (In these cases, the programmed channels are erased.)

You must follow the steps below before attempting to play or record a video tape. If you want to play or record a video tape BEFORE programming the tuner, you can cancel it by pressing the RESET/EXIT button. To program the tuner again, see "CHANNEL SET UP AGAIN" on the next page.
