Safety Precautions
Warning: To prevent fire or shock hazard, do not expose
this equipment to rain or moisture.
Federal Communications Commission Warning: Any
unauthorized changes or modifications to this equipment
void the user’s authority to operate it.
This VCR is equipped with a High Quality (HQ) system and is
compatible with existing Video Home System (VHS) equipment.
Philips Consumer Electronics Company recommends that you use
only video cassette tapes that have been tested and inspected for
use in two, four, six, and eight hour VCRs, and which are labeled
with the
mark. The use of tapes that have not been inspected
for use in two, four, six, and eight hour VCRs may result in poor
picture quality and excessive deposits on the video heads, which
may not be covered by the warranty if damage occurs.
Note to the Cable TV System Installer: This reminder is
provided to call the Cable TV system installer’s attention to
Article 820-40 of the National Electrical Code, which provides
guidelines for proper grounding – in particular, specifying that the
cable ground shall be connected to the grounding system of the
building, as close to the point of cable entry as possible.

8 Hookups With a Cable Box / Direct Broadcast System
There are two ways to connect your Cable Box/DBS to the VCR. With this connection:
● You may view any channel.
● You must select channels at the Cable Box/DBS. Channels cannot be changed at the VCR.
● You may not view a channel other than the one you are recording.
● You may not program channels at the VCR.
● You can only program a timer recording for one channel at a time. Set the TV and the VCR to the
Cable Box/DBS output channel (channel 03 or 04), and 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 channel). (This is step 5 on page 31.) Leave the Cable Box/DBS on for
a timer recording.

34 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.

Automatic Operation Features 43
The following playback features will always operate.
Automatic Playback
When you put a tape in the VCR, the power will come on automatically. If the tape’s record tab is missing, playback will begin.
If a timer recording is set, the power will not come on automatically when you insert a tape with the record tab intact.
If a timer recording is set and the VCR power is off, the VCR will
eject the tape if the record tab is missing.
Automatic Rewind, Eject, Off
When a tape is played, fast forwarded, or recorded to its end, the
VCR will rewind the tape, stop, eject the tape, then turn itself off.
If the real-time counter memory is set, the VCR will only rewind
to the point at which the counter is set to zero, then stop. The
VCR will not eject the tape automatically or shut itself off.
Tape Eject
A tape can be ejected with the VCR power on or off (but the
VCR must be plugged in). If a timer recording is set, a tape can
only be ejected with the power on. Make sure you insert a tape
and turn off the VCR power for the timer recording.
Automatic Tracking Adjustment
The VCR adjusts tracking automatically to give you the best possible picture quality. With some recordings, however, you may get a
better picture using the manual tracking controls (see below).
Manual Tracking
To manually adjust the tracking during playback and slow motion
playback, press the CHANNEL o/p buttons on the VCR. (The
CHANNEL o/p buttons on the remote control will not adjust
tracking.)
Tracking will return to Automatic Tracking Adjustment when you
press the STOP/p button or insert a tape.
You cannot manually adjust the tracking of a Still picture.
However, you may press the CHANNEL o/p buttons on the
VCR to remove vertical jitter in a Still picture.

44 Multi-Channel Television Sound System
Your VCR can play recordings broadcast in Hi-Fi (high fidelity) stereo, which produces a crisp, clear sound
from two sources. Your VCR also can play tapes recorded in a second audio (usually, that means your
program is recorded in a second language). Of course, your VCR will play tapes recorded in monaural
(single-source) sound as well.
Your VCR also will record in Hi-Fi stereo or in second audio, so when you play back that tape on the
VCR, it will be in stereo or second audio. If you play back the tape on a VCR that can’t play back tapes in
stereo or second audio, the VCR will automatically play the tape in monaural sound.
Read the directions on this page to familiarize yourself with your VCR’s stereo and second audio setups.
Then follow the directions on page 45 to record in stereo or second audio and the directions on pages 4647 to play back tapes recorded in Hi-Fi stereo.
Understanding On-Screen Displays
When you receive a signal from a channel you’re watching, portions of the on-screen display shown below
will appear when you press the STATUS/EXIT button on the remote control.
The indication 2ND AUD or TV
STEREO that appears on this side of
the status display tells you if your
VCR is programmed to receive a second audio or stereo broadcast (it cannot be programmed to receive both
at the same time).

When a program is available both in stereo and second audio, both
STEREO and 2ND AUD appear here. Even though a program is available in stereo or second audio, you still must program the VCR to
receive or record the program. Follow the directions on page 45.
NOTE: Although a program may be broadcast in both stereo and second
audio, you cannot record in both stereo and second audio at the same time.
To record and play back programs broadcast in stereo, even if you have a Mono Speaker TV, just use one

• You have set a timer recording. Turn the VCR power on, then eject the tape. Be sure to insert a tape
and turn off the power for your timer recording.
VCR ejects the tape when the REC(ord)/OTR button is pressed or when the VCR power is
turned off to set a timer recording.
• Make sure the tape has a record tab (page five).
Channels above 13 cannot be received.
• Select CABLE TV at the TUNER SET UP menu (page 12), then let the VCR set up the channels.
Poor reception
• You may need to tune your TV again.
The motor (cylinder) rotates even when the VCR is in Stop mode.
• To enable the quick play mechanism, the cylinder will rotate for about five minutes. This is normal.
Direct Broadcast System Hookups
• Watching one TV channel while recording another may not be possible if you have a DBS hookup. You
may have to set your TV to channel 03 or 04, then make your channel selections at the DBS.
• With many DBS hookups, if you use accessory audio and video cables to connect your VCR to your TV,
you will have to put your VCR in Line Input mode (channel 001 or 002).
Line Input mode
• If you accidentally enter Line Input mode (AV FRONT or AV REAR will appear on your TV screen
briefly), press the CHANNEL o/p buttons or use the Number buttons to select another channel.
Hi-Fi Stereo Sound
• During playback, Hi-Fi audio may temporarily revert to normal audio when you adjust tracking. This is
normal.
• When connecting the VCR to a stereo TV, you will only get stereo sound if you use audio cables to connect the AUDIO OUT jacks on the VCR to the AUDIO IN jacks on your TV, and if the TV is in Line
(Auxiliary) Input mode.
• When you connect the AUDIO OUT jacks on the VCR to the AUDIO IN jacks on your TV, the stereo
light on the TV might not glow. But, as long as the status display indicates you are receiving a stereo signal, you are receiving a stereo signal. This is normal.
• Only tapes recorded in Hi-Fi audio will play back in Hi-Fi audio. Tapes recorded in normal audio will
play back in monaural audio.

50 Glossary
AUDIO IN/OUT Jacks: jacks located on the front and back of
the VCR which are used to record audio from another source
(IN) or to send audio to another source (OUT).
Automatic Channel Setup: process in which the VCR memorizes all available channels. Then, when you press the CHANNEL
o/p buttons, you only scan through channels you receive.
Bands: settings that allow you to tune channels.
• Antenna – VHF (very high frequency; channels 2 - 13) and
UHF (ultra high frequency; channels 14 - 69).

Dubbing: copying a tape using a second VCR.
Frame: a still picture.
HQ: high quality; a feature in the VCR circuitry which provides
enhanced picture detail.
