MAIN FEATURES & FUNCTIONS

P R O G R A M M A B L E L E A R N I N G FUNCTION

Can easily be programmed to learn the codes for almost any other infrared-basedremote, allowing the remote control functions for many different components to be consolidated conveniently in a single unit.

This remote controller uses a non-volatilememory so that the learned codes will be retained even if the batteries are removed.

• PRESET CODES

Function buttons already contain preset codes (using the RC - 5/RC - 6 remote control language) for other remote-controllableMarantzaudio-visualcomponent.

(This does not apply to some of the buttons.)

LCD LIGHTING FUNCTION AND LUMINOUS BUTTONS

To allow easy use in a location which has been darkened for a home theater performance, for instance, this remote controller features an LCD backlight with electroluminescence (EL) and luminous buttons which can store light.

LARGE, EASY-TO-READDISPLAY

Large LCD (liquid crystal display) messages and other information at a glance.

JOG DIAL

The function selected by Jog Dial (displayed on the LCD) can be operated directly by the enter button.

ENGLISH

If it is left for approximately 1 minute without pressing any buttons, all items on the LCD will go off except the function indicator.

Even if the display goes off, the remote controller will retain the status established before the display went off. When any button is pressed, the display will appear on the whole LCD display.

LEARN MODE

The remote controller is capable of learning and memorizing the remote control codes used by almost any other remote controller you may already own.

If no commands have been programmed for a particular function button, the remote controller will transmit whatever codes have been factory preset.

The following example shows how to program your remote controller and how to use the codes for a laser disc player (LD).

A different code can be programmed for each function in each one of the buttons. The COPY mode described later (on page 34) comes in handy if the same code is to be sent by all the functions.

The remote controller infrared receiver is located at the top of the remote controller.

1.Use a ballpoint pen or other sharp point to press the MODE button z untilLEARN is displayed and starts to blink. Each time the button is pressed, the display cycles

through the modes one by one in sequence: LEARN NAME CLONE TX CLONE RX USE, etc.

The USE mode is selected when the MODE button is pressed after an operation in the LEARN, NAME or other mode.

2.Place the laser disc’s remote controller so that its infrared signal transmitter is facing the infrared signal receiver on the Marantz remote controller at a distance of about 5 centimeters (2 inches).
