You may view any channel.

You must select channels at the Cable Box/DBS. Channels cannot be changed at the VCR.

You can only program a timer recording for one channel at a time if you are not using the Controller. Set

 

the TV and the VCR to the Cable Box/DBS output channel (channel 03 or 04); set the CH3/CH4 switch

 

to the same channel. Set your Cable Box/DBS to the channel you want to record.When you enter the

 

channel you want to record in a timer recording, select channel 03 or 04 (the Cable Box/DBS output

Helpful Hints

Pressing the S-VHS ET button has no effect on an S-VHS tape.

To obtain the highest quality recording and to play pictures over a longer period, S-VHS recording on S-VHS tape is recommended.

Label S-VHS ET recordings so you can easily distinguish them from regular VHS recordings.

S-VHS ET recordings also can be played on an S-VHS VCR or a VHS VCR equipped with SQPB (S-VHS QUASI PLAYBACK). However, there may be cases where S-VHS ET playback is not possible on a particular VCR.

Frequent still, frame-by-frame, and slow motion playback may damage the tape and cause the picture quality to decline.

With some tapes, better picture quality may not be obtained even with S-VHS ET recording.Test a recording first to make sure better results can be obtained.

Use high grade tapes for good results.

Helpful Hints

Pressing the POWER button to turn on the VCR will set AUTO DBS RECORD LINK to OFF automatically.

Do not turn on the DBS before the program starts; otherwise, the VCR will start recording when the DBS power is turned on.

Depending on the type of DBS, the VCR may not record the first few seconds of the program. Or, the VCR may record slightly longer than the actual length of the program.

If a Record Link is set, regular timer recordings will not occur.

“Err L-1” will flash on the display panel after the VCR turns off if the DBS power is on.Turn off the DBS and set up the Record Link again.

36 Setting Up the VCR Plus+ Programming System

1

First, fill in the boxes on this page. It will only take a few minutes, and you must do it if you want the VCR Plus+ programming system to work properly.

Since the channel numbers of the stations you receive may not be the same as the station numbers, and since channel numbers differ from area to area, you must program the VCR with your local channel information.To fill in the boxes, you will need 1) a cable channel list, if applicable (you can request one from your cable company), and 2) a chart that lists VCR Plus+ channel numbers, which you can find in your TV guide or the TV listings of your local newspaper.

NOTE: If you are using a Cable Box/DBS and are not using the Controller, the Cable/TV channel must be 03 or 04 (the Cable Box/DBS output channel) for every VCR Plus+ channel.

For example, when you record a program of 140 minutes in length onto a 120-minute tape, the program is recorded in SP for about 110 minutes and in SLP for about 30 minutes.

If DSPC is ON, the DSPC will work for both playback and recording.

For recording, DSPC will appear briefly on the display panel when you start a recording.

For playback, DSPC will appear briefly on the display panel at the beginning of playback.The VCR will adjust the picture quality based on the condition of the tape in use.

Helpful Hints

DSPC does not work during a Record Link.

DSPC makes its adjustments before a timer recording begins.

Since DSPC makes its adjustments before recording actually starts, there is a brief delay after the REC(ord)/OTR button is pressed.To begin recording immediately, set DSPC to OFF.

If you stop or pause recording or playback, DSPC may not appear on the display panel when you resume recording or playback. DSPC may appear on the display panel only immediately after you insert a tape and begin recording or playback.

Index Search

When you make a recording, the VCR automatically places an index code at the beginning of the recording. Essentially, an index code is a type of “bookmark” for your tape.This feature is useful if you have several different programs recorded on a single tape.

Fast forward or rewind to the next or previous index code on the tape by following the steps below.

1

Press the VCR button. Make sure the VCR is in VCR position. (The VCR light will appear on the display panel when the VCR is in VCR position.) If the VCR light does not appear, press the VCR/TV button once.

2

Insert a tape in the VCR. Press the --7/STILL/SLOW + button to fast forward to the next index code on the tape. Or, press the 4/STILL/SLOW - button to rewind to the previous index code on the tape (or to the beginning of the current recording).Wait for the VCR to fast forward or rewind the tape.When the index code is reached, tape playback will begin automatically.

NOTE:You may press an --7/STILL/SLOW + button repeatedly to skip over multiple recordings. For example, if you want to fast forward past four recordings, press the --7/STILL/SLOW + button four times. INDEX 4 will appear in the bottom right corner of the screen.The index codes will count down on the screen as the search progresses. (ON SCREEN MODE can not be set to OFF. Details are on page 26.)

Skip Search

This function enables you to skip forward 30 seconds at a time during tape playback.

1

During tape playback, press the VCR button, then press the SKIP SEARCH button. Each time you press the SKIP SEARCH button, the VCR will skip forward 30 seconds, then resume normal playback. You can skip up to two minutes at a time using Skip Search.

Helpful Hints

It may take a few seconds to display

the directory screen while the VCR searches for the program information at step 2.

Tape Manager is possible with the cassettes recorded with this VCR only.

To record the date and time as the program title in this VCR’s memory, make sure the VCR’s clock is set correctly before recording.

To record the program information in this VCR”s memory, you must record each program for over the minimum continuous recording time; 5 min, for the SP mode or 15 min. for the SLP mode.

After recording a tape with this VCR, write the tape number on a label and affix the label to the tape in order to allow you to find the tape by its number.The tape number will be assigned and appear on the screen once you eject the recorded tape.

If the Tape Manager does not show the content of the inserted tape, wind the tape to recent recording and press the TAPE MANAGER button again.

The program information is stored in this VCR’s memory. If the memory in this VCR should ever be damaged and the program information lost, it is impossible to restore that information.
