SAFETY FIRST
Safety Precautions
The rating plate and the safety caution are on the rear of the unit.
WARNING: DANGEROUS VOLTAGE INSIDE
WARNING: TO PREVENT FIRE OR SHOCK HAZARD, DO NOT EXPOSE THIS UNIT TO RAIN OR
MOISTURE.
CAUTION
n When you are not using the recorder for a long period of time, it is recommended that you disconnect the
power cord from the mains outlet.
n Dangerous voltage inside. Refer internal servicing to qualified service personnel. To prevent electric shock or
fire hazard, remove the power cord from the mains outlet prior to connecting or disconnecting any signal lead
or aerial.
WARNING
There are two different types of SECAM colour systems: SECAM-L, used in FRANCE (also called SECAM-West),
and SECAM-B, used in Eastern European countries (also called SECAM-East).
1. This recorder can also receive SECAM-B colour television signals for recording and playback.
2. Recordings made of SECAM-B television signals produce monochrome pictures if played back on a video
recorder of SECAM-L standard, or do not produce normal colour pictures if played back on a PAL video
recorder with SECAM-B system incorporated (even if the TV set is SECAM-compatible).
3. SECAM-L prerecorded cassettes or recordings made with a SECAM-L video recorder produce monochrome
pictures when played back with this recorder.
4. This recorder cannot be used for the SECAM-L standard. Use a SECAM-L recorder to record SECAM-L signals.
IMPORTANT
n Please read the various precautions on page 2 and 3 before installing or operating the recorder.
n It should be noted that it may be unlawful to re-record pre-recorded tapes, records, or discs without the consent
of the owner of copyright in the sound or video recording, broadcast or cable programme and in any literary,
dramatic, musical, or artistic work embodied therein.

button does not completely shut off mains power from the unit, but switches operating
" shows electrical power standby and " " shows ON.
Video tapes recorded with this video recorder in the LP (Long Play) mode cannot be played back on a singlespeed video recorder.
Failure to heed the following precautions may result in damage to the recorder, remote control or video
cassette.
1. DO NOT place the recorder . . .
... in an environment prone to extreme temperatures or humidity.
... in direct sunlight.
... in a dusty environment.
... in an environment where strong magnetic fields are generated.
... on a surface that is unstable or subject to vibration.
2. DO NOT block the recorder’s ventilation openings.
3. DO NOT place heavy objects on the recorder or remote control.
4. DO NOT place anything which might spill on top of the recorder or remote control.
5. AVOID violent shocks to the recorder during transport.
MOISTURE CONDENSATION
Moisture in the air will condense on the recorder when you move it from a cold place to a warm place, or under
extremely humid conditions—just as water droplets form in the surface of a glass filled with cold liquid. Moisture
condensation on the head drum will cause damage to the tape. In conditions where condensation may occur, keep the
recorder turned on for a few hours to let the moisture dry.
ABOUT HEAD CLEANING
Accumulation of dirt and other particles on the video heads may cause the playback picture to become blurred or
interrupted. Be sure to contact your nearest JVC dealer if such troubles occur.

● If station names (ID — Z pg. 61) have also been stored in the recorder's memory, the station name will be displayed at
the top left corner of the screen for about 5 seconds when the recorder is tuned to a different station.
● If you want to set the tuner manually such as to add or skip channels, to change channel positions, or to set or change
station names, see pages 58 – 62.
2 Perform "Clock Set" on page 64.
C If both auto channel set and auto clock set have failed:
1 Make sure the TV aerial cable is connected properly to the recorder and turn off the recorder power once, then turn the
recorder power back on again.
● The Country Set display appears on the front display panel and/or on the screen; perform steps 2 – 4 on pages 6 – 7 again
or perform the procedure on page 8.
IMPORTANT
n In certain reception conditions, station names may not be stored correctly, and auto Guide Program Number Set may not
work properly. If the Guide Program numbers are not set properly, when you timer-record a TV programme using SHOWVIEW,
the recorder will record a TV programme of a different station. When programming the timer using SHOWVIEW, be sure to
check whether the channel position on which your recorder receives the broadcasting station you wish to record is selected
(Z pg. 28, "SHOWVIEW Timer Programming").
n Your video recorder memorizes all detected stations even if reception of some of them is poor. In these cases picture quality
may be poor. To delete those stations with an unacceptable picture Z "Delete A Channel" on page 59.

About NTSC Playback
● Some TVs shrink the picture vertically and place black bars at
the top and bottom of the screen. This is not a malfunction on
the part of either the video recorder or the TV.
● The picture may roll up and down. This can be corrected
using the V-HOLD control found on some TVs. (This cannot
be corrected if the TV does not have a V-HOLD control.)
● The counter and tape remaining time readings will be
incorrect.
● During search, still, or frame-by-frame playback, the picture
will be distorted, and there may be a loss of colour.
● Depending on the type of TV, the top and bottom portions of
superimposed displays may be cut off during NTSC playback.

to deliver a stable picture even with old tapes and rental
cassettes.
The on/off of Digital 3-DNR (Noise Reduction) which cuts noise
and enables clear picture reproduction is also linked to this
function.
* The default setting is "ON".
We recommend that you use the Digital TBC feature when...

condition, there may be cases where the picture becomes
more stable with Digital TBC/NR set to off.
● When Digital TBC/NR is set to on, if you play back a tape
where certain types of signals are recorded (using a PC or
some character generators), the playback picture may be
distorted. If this is the case, turn off Digital TBC/NR.

● The recorder adjusts the playback picture quality
based on the quality of the tape in use.
● B.E.S.T. is active during Auto Tracking. “BEST”
appears blinking on the recorder’s display panel.
NOTES:
● The recorder spends approximately 7 seconds
assessing the condition of the tape, then begins
recording.
NOTES:
● The B.E.S.T. system works for both SP and LP modes only after
a tape has been inserted and the Record mode is first
initiated. It does not work during recording.
● The B.E.S.T. system does not work while Auto Satellite Prog
recording is in progress (Z pg. 35).
● In the case of timer recording, the B.E.S.T. system works
before recording is initiated.
● Once the cassette is ejected, the B.E.S.T. data is cancelled.
The next time the cassette is used for recording, B.E.S.T. is reperformed.
● Pressing the recorder's RECORD button while "BEST" is
displayed does not start Instant Timer Recording (Z pg. 23).
ATTENTION
Since the B.E.S.T. system works before recording actually
starts, there is a delay of approximately 7 seconds after
RECORD and PLAY on the remote are pressed, or RECORD
on the recorder is pressed. To make sure you record the
desired scene or programme in its entirety, first perform the
following steps:
1) Press and hold PAUSE and press RECORD to engage the
RECORD PAUSE mode.
● The recorder then automatically checks the condition
of the tape and, after approximately 7 seconds, reenters RECORD PAUSE.
2) Press PLAY to start recording.
● If you want to bypass the B.E.S.T. system and begin
recording immediately, set “B.E.S.T.” to “OFF” in step
4 on page 26.
27
● When watching a tape recorded with “B.E.S.T.” set to “ON”,
it is recommended that you leave B.E.S.T. on during playback
as well.
● When watching a rental tape or one recorded on another
video recorder, or when using this recorder as the player for
editing, set B.E.S.T. to your preference by performing steps 1
through 5 on page 26.
● "BEST" only appears at the beginning of automatic tracking.
Even though it doesn't appear after that, the B.E.S.T. function
is operative.

position in step 6.

VPS/PDC Recording
Now available from some TV stations, PDC (Programme
Delivery Control) and VPS (Video Programme System) are
service designed to assure safe, accurate timer recording.
With this system, special code signals are transmitted
together with the audio/video signals. These code signals
control your video recorder and have precedence over the
advertised times you may have preset into the timer. This
means that your recorder will start and stop recording when
the preset TV programmes actually start and end — even if
the broadcast time of a preset TV programme is changed.
NOTES:
● When you use Express Timer Programming, set the start
time (VPS or PDC time) exactly as advertised in the TV

Auto Satellite Prog recording is possible with the AV2 IN/DECODER connector only. (Z pg. 51, 52)
For timer programming of the satellite tuner, refer to the instruction manual of the satellite tuner.
Auto Satellite Prog recording is not possible if your satellite tuner does not have a timer.
The REC LINK indicator blinks while Auto Satellite Prog recording is in progress.
Pressing the recorder's
button while Auto Satellite Prog recording is in progress turns off the recorder's power and disengage
the Auto Satellite Prog Rec mode.
If there are more than one satellite programme you wish to record with Auto Satellite Prog Recording, it is not possible to set the
different tape speed per each; the tape speed selected in step 2 will be applicable to all the programmes for Auto Satellite Prog
recording.
The B.E.S.T. system (Z pg. 26) does not work while Auto Satellite Prog recording is in progress.
Just Clock (Z pg. 64) does not work when the Auto Satellite Prog Rec mode is engaged.
Depending on the type of satellite tuner, the recorder may not record a slight portion of the beginning of the programme or may record
slightly longer than the actual length of the programme.
If you engage the Auto Satellite Prog Recording mode when the satellite tuner's power is on, the recorder will not start Auto
Satellite Prog recording even though the REC LINK indicator blinks. When the satellite tuner shuts off once and is turned back on
again, the recorder starts recording.
When the Auto Satellite Prog Rec mode is engaged or the recorder's power is turned off after Auto Satellite Prog recording is
finished, the recorder will not enter the Timer mode even though "AUTO TIMER" is set to "ON".
After Auto Satellite Programme recording, the number of recorded programmes will not be displayed on the front display panel for
the Instant ReView function (Z pg. 19).
You can also record a programme from your cable system in the same way if the system has a timer.
When you press and hold the recorder's REC LINK button to engage the Auto Satellite Prog Rec mode, if the REC LINK indicator
does not light but instead blinks quickly even though your satellite tuner's power is off, Auto Satellite Prog Recording will not work
properly with that satellite tuner*.
If this is the case, perform "Express Timer Programming" (Z pg. 30) to timer-record a satellite programme.
* Some satellite tuners output signals even if the power is off. Auto Satellite Prog Recording is not possible with those satellite tuners.

NOTES:
● You can also monitor the sound when searching for scenes
you want to edit in steps 8 – 9. Since you can hear the
soundtrack during selection, you can avoid abrupt or
unnatural sounding scene-to-scene transitions. The sound that
is heard, however, is not TimeScan Audio.
● When editing, there may be a discrepancy of about 2 seconds on
the source tape between the locations you chose as edit-in/-out
points and the locations your recorder recognizes as those points.
● For any scene, the edit-out point must have a counter reading
that is at least 1 second after the corresponding edit-in point. Any
less than 1 second and the edit-out point will not be registered.
● Since the source recorder prerolls during Random Assemble
Editing, there must be at least 15 seconds worth of recorded
material prior to any edit-in point on the source tape.
● If the search time for an edit-in point exceeds 5 minutes, the
recording deck enters its Stop mode and editing will not take place.
● During steps 8 and 9 — if you engage the Pause mode while
registering edit-in and -out points in the R.A. Edit screen, the
characters in the on-screen display may become distorted. This
is normal.
To Make Corrections . . .
. . . during step 8 or 9, you can cancel registered in and out
points by pressing on the remote control. Each time you
press, the preceding point is erased.
● If, for example, you have registered 5 sets of in and out points
and want to reset the first set, you have to press until all
points after the first set have been erased. Reenter them after
you've repaired the first set of points.
Memory Capacity
Random Assemble Editing shares
memory space with the recorder's
timer. If there are programs
occupied by timer-recording data,
those spaces cannot be used to
register edit-in and -out points —
meaning you won't be able to edit
8 scenes.
● When all 8 programs are full,
"PROGRAM FULL" appears on
the R.A. EDIT screen.

● To record a satellite programme which delivers the Y/C signal,
set "AV2 SELECT" to "AV2" and "AV1 SELECT" to "S-VIDEO".
You can obtain high-quality S-VHS picture.
● If you connect your recorder and TV via S-Video cable VCS211 (not provided), you can enjoy high-quality S-VHS
pictures.
● Set "AV2 SELECT" to "DECODER" to view a scrambled
broadcast. (Z pg. 44)
● Automatic Satellite Program Recording function is not
possible with this connection.
● To view a programme via the satellite tuner, select L-1 mode
by pressing NUMBER keys and/or TV PROG so that
"L-1" appears on the display panel.
● For details, refer to the instruction manual for the satellite
tuner and decoder.
Connect the decoder to your recorder's AV2 IN/DECODER
connector and AV1 IN/OUT connector to the satellite tuner's
connector. Then connect the satellite tuner and TV. If you have
a decoder for satellite broadcast, connect it to the satellite
tuner's connector.

MAKE CONNECTIONS
Connect the AUDIO OUT L and R connectors on your
video recorder to the AUX IN or TAPE MONITOR
terminals on your stereo system’s receiver or amplifier.
NOTES:
● When connecting your recorder’s audio output connectors to
a stereo amplifier, make sure you connect L and R correctly.
● If stereo or bilingual TV broadcasts are receivable in your
area, this recorder can record them independently of the TV
set and play them back through the connected stereo system.
● When listening to sound through the connected stereo system,
turn the TV’s volume down completely.
CAUTIONS:
● This recorder has a dynamic range of more than 80 dB with
regards to its Hi-Fi audio capability. It is recommended that
you check the maximum level if you are going to listen to the
Hi-Fi audio signals through a stereo amplifier. A sudden surge
in the input level to the speakers may damage them.
● Some speakers and televisions are specially shielded to
prevent television interference. If both are of the non-shielded
type, do not place the speakers adjacent to the TV set as this
can adversely affect the video playback picture.

IMPORTANT
● In certain reception conditions, station names may not be
stored correctly, and auto Guide Program Number Set may
not work properly. If the Guide Program numbers are not set

different station. When programming the timer using
SHOWVIEW, be sure to check whether the channel position
on which your recorder receives the broadcasting station
you wish to record is selected (Z pg. 28, "SHOWVIEW Timer
Programming").
● Your video recorder memorizes all detected stations even if
reception of some of them is poor. In these cases picture
quality may be poor. To delete those stations with an
unacceptable picture Z "Delete A Channel" on page 59.
NOTES:
● Fine tuning is performed automatically during Auto Channel

Video Channel Set
Video Channel (RF Output Channel) is the channel on which your TV receives picture and sound signals from the video recorder
through the RF cable.
IMPORTANT
Perform the following steps only if —
— interference appears in the TV picture after you have moved to a different area or a new station has started broadcasting in
your area.
— you change the connection between your recorder and TV from RF connection to AV or S-VIDEO connection, or vice versa.
If you have connected the video recorder to your TV via both the provided RF cable and a 21-pin SCART cable (AV
connection), or via the provided RF cable, an S-Video cable and an audio cable (S-VIDEO connection), since you do
not need the video channel you have to set the video channel to off.
If you have connected the video recorder to your TV via the RF cable only (RF connection), you have to set the correct
video channel.
Before performing the following steps, make sure the recorder's power is off and there is no cassette inserted in the recorder.

Then set your TV to UHF channel 50.
● If the two vertical white bars

NOTES:
SET RF OUTPUT SYSTEM
● If you set the video recorder to a channel which is
occupied by a local station or has neighbouring
channels that are occupied by local stations, the
picture reception quality will be affected and some
interference noise will appear on the TV screen. Be
sure to select a vacant channel which has no
broadcast on neighbouring channels.
● If you cannot obtain the two vertical white bars
clearly with any channel between 22 and 69, consult
your JVC dealer.
The blinking number on the display indicates the RF
output system of your country. If you have selected
MAGYARORSZAG (36), CESKA REPUBLIKA (42),
POLSKA (48) or OTHER EASTERN EUROPE (EE) for the
country setting (pg. 6, 10), press %fi to set to "2". For
other countries, set to "1". Then press OK.
