IMPORTANT PRODUCT SAFETY INSTRUCTIONS

Electrical energy can perform many useful functions. But improper use can result in potential electrical shock or fire hazards. This product has been engineered and manufactured to assure your personal safety. In order not to defeat the built-in safeguards, observe the following basic rules for its installation, use and servicing.

ATTENTION:

Follow and obey all warnings and instructions marked on your product and its operating instructions. For your safety, please read all the safety and operating instructions before you operate this product and keep this booklet for future reference.

INSTALLATION

1. Grounding or Polarization

(A)Your product may be equipped with a polarized alternatingcurrent line plug (a plug having one blade wider than the other). This plug will fit into the power outlet only one way. This is a safety feature.

If you are unable to insert the plug fully into the outlet, try reversing the plug. If the plug should still fail to fit, contact your electrician to replace your obsolete outlet. Do not defeat the safety purpose of the polarized plug.

(B)Your product may be equipped with a 3-wire grounding-type plug, a plug having a third (grounding) pin. This plug will only fit into a grounding-type power outlet. This is a safety feature.

If you are unable to insert the plug into the outlet, contact your electrician to replace your obsolete outlet. Do not defeat the safety purpose of the grounding-type plug.

2. Power Sources

Operate your product only from the type of power source indicated on the marking label. If you are not sure of the type of power supply to your home, consult your product dealer or local power company. If your product is intended to operate from battery power, or other sources, refer to the operating instructions.

3. Overloading

Do not overload wall outlets, extension cords, or integral convenience receptacles as this can result in a risk of fire or electric shock.

4. Power Cord Protection

Power supply cords should be routed so that they are not likely to be walked on or pinched by items placed upon or against them, paying particular attention to cords at plugs, convenience receptacles, and the point where they exit from the product.

5. Ventilation

Slots and openings in the cabinet are provided for ventilation. To ensure reliable operation of the product and to protect it from overheating, these openings must not be blocked or covered.

Do not block the openings by placing the product on a bed, sofa, rug or other similar surface.

ANTENNA INSTALLATION

INSTRUCTIONS

1. Outdoor Antenna Grounding

If an outside antenna or cable system is connected to the product, be sure the antenna or cable system is grounded so as to provide some protection against voltage surges and built-up static charges. Article 810 of the National Electrical Code, ANSI/NFPA 70, provides information with regard to proper grounding of the mast and supporting structure, grounding of the lead-in wire to an antenna discharge unit, size of grounding connectors, location of antenna discharge unit, connection to grounding electrodes, and requirements for the grounding electrode.

2. Lightning

For added protection for this product during a lightning storm, or when it is left unattended and unused for long periods of time, unplug it from the wall outlet and disconnect the antenna or cable system. This will prevent damage to the product due to lightning and power-line surges.

3. Power Lines

An outside antenna system should not be located in the vicinity of overhead power lines or other electric light or power circuits, or where it can fall into such power lines or circuits. When installing an outside antenna system, extreme care should be taken to keep from touching such power lines or circuits as contact with them might be fatal.

The time and date can be set automatically by the clock setting data transmitted from one of the regular TV broadcast channels. We call this TV channel the “host channel” and it is a PBS channel in your area.

1 Perform Plug & Play setup

Connect the antenna cable to the VCR

( pg. 7). Then connect the AC power cord to an AC outlet. Do not turn on the VCR.

The clock and tuner channels will be set automatically.

NOTES:

When the AC power cord is connected to an AC outlet, “LOAD” appears on the front display panel. It takes some time until VCR completes its set up.

Auto Clock Set is performed first.

“Auto” blinks on the front display panel during Auto Clock Set.

Auto Channel Set is performed next. Auto Channel Set scans all the channels that are receivable by your VCR. During Auto Channel Set, the channel numbers are displayed as they are scanned and set.

When Plug & Play setting has been complete successfully, the correct clock time is displayed. If you perform Plug & Play setting successfully, there is no need to perform the clock ( pg. 10) and tuner ( pg. 13) settings. If, however, you want to add or delete channels, refer to Manual Channel Set on page 14.

*If an incorrect clock time or “– –:– –” appears on the display panel, see “What to do if Plug & Play setting failed” below.

INFORMATION

If “AUTO CLOCK” is set to “ON” on the Clock Set screen on page 11, the clock will be adjusted automatically by the host channel every hour (except 11:00 PM, midnight, 1:00 AM and 2:00 AM) using the incoming PBS channel clock setting data. (This automatic clock adjustment can only be performed when the VCR is turned off. The clock will be adjusted just on these hours — on the time displayed on the front display panel, not on the actual real time.)

The default setting of “AUTO CLOCK” is “ON”.

If the memory backup fails, because a power outage occurs or because the AC power cord is unplugged, Auto Clock Set will be performed when power is restored to the VCR.

Poor antenna or cable signal may prevent the VCR from receiving the Auto clock setting data from a PBS channel. If this function is taking a considerable amount of time, it may be necessary to perform the Semiauto or Manual Clock Set procedure ( pg. 12).

What to do if Plug & Play setting failed

If an incorrect time is displayed on the front display panel, you may be receiving the clock setting data of a PBS channel from an adjacent time zone, or an incorrect PBS channel from a cable TV system. In this case, perform the Semiauto ( pg. 11) or Manual Clock Set ( pg. 12) procedure.

If “– –:– –” appears on the front display panel, your antenna cable may not be connected to the VCR or there may not be a Host PBS signal available in your area. Ensure that the antenna cable is connected correctly. Then turn on and off the VCR; the Plug & Play setting will be automatically reactivated.

If Plug & Play setting is not performed though the antenna cable is connected correctly, perform Manual Clock Set ( pg. 12) and Auto Channel Set or Manual Channel Set ( pg. 13 or 14).

NOTES:

The Controller may not work with all types of cable box.

If your cable box does not respond to any code, you cannot use the Controller to change cable box channels. In this case, make sure to leave the cable box turned on and tuned to the proper channel before the scheduled start time of timer recording.

Contact your cable company about the possibility of exchanging your current cable box with the one compatible with your VCR.

The VCR can only change the cable box channel through the Controller during timer recording.

If your cable box cannot be operated with a Remote (because it has no remote sensor), you cannot use the Controller to change its channels. Make sure to leave the cable box turned on and tuned to the proper channel before the scheduled start time of timer recording.

If the VCR’s memory backup expires because of a power failure, set the cable box input channel and brand again.

For customers in U.S.A.: If you are unable to set the Controller, contact JVC toll free at 1-800-252-5722.

The VCR can automatically change the DBS receiver channels using the Controller when the VCR has been programed using Express timer programing ( pg. 38). Because satellite programing does not use PlusCode, the Controller cannot change the DBS receiver channels during VCR Plus+ timer recording.

(You can also use “Satellite Auto Recording” ( pg. 62) if your DBS receiver is equipped with a timer.)

If a cable box is also used, it is recommended that you connect the DBS receiver to your VCR’s audio/video input connectors and the cable box to your VCR’s antenna input terminal.

Installing Controller

1 Situate Controller

Place the Controller so that its transmitter is facing the DBS receiver’s remote sensor.

Make sure the path between the Controller and the DBS receiver’s remote sensor is not blocked.

2 Attach Controller

Fix securely using the adhesive strip attached on the back of the Controller.

3Connect DBS receiver to VCR

If your DBS receiver does not have audio/

video output connectors

Connect the RF output terminal on the DBS receiver to the ANTENNA IN terminal on the rear of your VCR.

If your DBS receiver has audio/video output connectors

Connect an audio/video cable between the AUDIO/VIDEO IN connectors on the rear of the VCR and the audio/video output connectors on the DBS receiver.

NOTE:

When connecting your DBS receiver, refer to its instruction manual.

4 Connect Controller to VCR
