The connections proposed on page 3 permit the rapid connection of your DVD recorder and
ensure optimum sound, visual quality (RGB) and standards. Depending on the sockets available on
your other devices or to benefit from the maximum performance of your DVD recorder you may
make other connections.The DVD recorder has other sockets for this purpose.

Sockets and cables (inputs)
1 - Audio inputs (INPUT L, R)
RCA sockets and
cables for analogue
L and R audio
signal.
The analogue sound of an operating device (television set or amplifier) can be
input via the 2 Audio sockets L and R of your DVD recorder. If you do not
use the recommended connection, i.e. the Peritel (Scart) socket, you must, as
well as the video connections (CVBS or S-VIDEO) connect the outputs Audio
L and R of the operating device to the Audio L and R inputs of your DVD
recorder.
Note: the audio sockets and cables are generally identified by a colour code (white
for the left channel and red for the right).
2 – Video in - Composite (CVBS) (COMPOSITE VIDEO INPUT)
RCA socket and
cable for CVBS
Video signal, also
called Composite.
The yellow video socket also known as composite video (or CVBS): the
image quality provided by this socket is less than all the other video sockets.
Only use this socket if all the other sockets are already in use.
3 - S-Video input (Y/C) (S-VIDEO IN)
Ushiden socket and
cable for Y/C Video
signal, also called
S-Video.
The S-Video signal is of a lesser quality than that of the RGB signal supplied
by the Peritel (Scart) socket.The S-Video signal however gives a better image
quality than the composite video socket (C) since black and white (Y) are
separated from colour in the video signal.
Note: do not forget to connect the audio cables since the S-Video cable transmits
only images, not sound.

4 - Optical Out socket (DIGITAL AUDIO OUT)
Optical socket and
cable for digital
audio signal.
The digital sound of a disc being played is permanently available on the optical
socket of your DVD recorder. Use this socket by connecting it to a decoder
or a DTS or Dolby Digital amplifier.
5 - S-Video out socket (Y/C) (S-VIDEO OUT)
Ushiden socket and
cable for Y/C Video
signal, also called
S-Video.
The S-Video cable provides a video signal of lower quality than the Peritel
(Scart) socket. An S-Video signal however provides a better quality image than
a composite video socket, because colour (C) is separated from black and
white (Y) in the video signal.
Note: do not forget to also connect the audio cables, because the S-Video cable
transmits images and not sound.
6 - Audio outputs (OUTPUT L, R)
RCA sockets and
cables for analogue
L and R audio
signal.
The digital sound output from a disc being read is permanently available at
the two audio sockets, L and R, of your DVD recorder. If you do not use the
recommended Peritel (Scart) connection to the television (paragraph 3
page 3), you must, as well as one of the video connections (CVBS or SVIDEO) connect the Audio outputs, L and R, of your DVD recorder to the
Audio inputs, L and R, of your television set (or amplifier).
Note: audio sockets and cables are usually identified by a colour code (white for the
left channel and red for the right channel).
7 - Composite Video Out socket (CVBS) (OUTPUT COMPOSITE VIDEO)
The yellow video socket is also called composite video, or CVBS.The

five seconds, press the PLAY button again to continue the search for the
next set of codes. Repeat this operation until the appliance goes into
standby mode.There are 20 sets of codes.
4. When the appliance goes into standby mode, press the
button on the
front to switch it on again.Then press the REV button to put it back in
standby mode, and if necessary, keep pressing until the appliance goes into
standby.
5. Press the STOP button and hold it down until the remote control light
goes off.
Manual programming
This method involves carrying out a manual search for the codes to be used
for controlling your other appliances.
1. Switch on the appliance you wish to use the remote control with.
2. Press the corresponding key on the remote control, while holding it
pressed down, enter one of the codes corresponding to the make of the
device (Thomson Group codes on the bottom left of this page, other
brands can be found in the “Related documents” leaflet).
If the remote control light flashes you have entered the wrong code or it is not
possible to program the remote control.
3. Point the remote control at the appliance and press the relevant button.
Press the
standby button.
If the appliance does not go into standby mode, try another code.
Depending on the year of manufacture and the type of appliance, some functions
may not be available.
Certain codes may cover more functions than others.Test the functions you
can control and, if appropriate, try other codes.
SAT Codes: 5000, 5001,

Your DVD recorder doesn’t switch on
• Did you move the DVD recorder? Check the power plug: is it well plugged into the mains
socket? Also check the power cable jack at the rear of the DVD recorder; is it well
pushed in.
• Is the mains socket to which you DVD recorder is connected receiving current? Try to
plug in a lamp or other electrical device: do they work? Check the corresponding fuse in
your house’s fuse box.
The remote control doesn’t work
• To control your DVD recorder, you must first press the DVD key of the remote control.
• Point the remote control at the front of your DVD recorder, not at your TV set.
• The operating range of the remote control is 6 to 8 metres. It gradually decreases as the
batteries wear down.This is a good indicator of the state of the batteries.When the
batteries require replacing, the signal lamp on the remote control flashes when you use it.
• Make sure no objects (or animals) are in the path of the infrared beam between the
remote control and your DVD recorder.They may block the beam and thereby cause a
malfunction of your DVD recorder.
The remote control of your DVD recorder also controls another device
• Some DVD players made by the Thomson group (Thomson, Brandt, Ferguson, Saba,
Telefunken) react to the same codes.To avoid this inconvenience, you can program your
DVD recorder and its remote control so they have a different code to those of the other
devices. Refer to page 58.
The remote control and the DVD recorder don’t work anymore: everything
seems blocked
• Unplug your DVD recorder from the mains for a few moments and plug it back in.
You don’t see any picture
• Turn on your TV set and your DVD recorder.
• On your TV set, select the socket which receives the signals from your DVD recorder
(AV1,TV1, AUX1, etc., depending on the make, if connected as shown on page 3).
• Make sure that all sockets are well pushed into the various sockets.
The colours aren’t natural
• Check that the scart cables are well pushed into the sockets of the various devices.
• Check the settings Output AV1, Input AV2 and Output PAL/NTSC (System Options menu,
page 52).
The image format doesn’t match the screen format of your TV set
• The image format is adjustable. Refer to page 46.With certain discs, the format is pre-set
and cannot be changed.
