MOISTURE CONDENSATION
TM
PAL
n Cassettes marked "VHS" (or "S-VHS") can be used with this
video recorder. However, only VHS recordings can be made
and played back.
n HQ VHS is compatible with existing VHS equipment.
n Video Plus+ and PlusCode are trademarks of Gemstar
Development Corporation. The Video Plus+ system is
manufactured under license from Gemstar Development

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.

Some Do's And Don'ts On The Safe
Use Of Equipment
This equipment has been designed and manufactured to meet international safety standards but, like any
electrical equipment, care must be taken if you are to obtain the best results and safety is to be assured.
DO read the operating instructions before you attempt to use the equipment.
DO ensure that all electrical connections (including the mains plug, extension leads and interconnections between pieces of equipment) are properly made and in accordance with the manufacturer's
instructions. Switch off and withdraw the mains plug when making or changing connections.
DO consult your dealer if you are ever in doubt about the installation, operation or safety of your equipment.
DO be careful with glass panels or doors on equipment.
DON'T continue to operate the equipment if you are in any doubt about it working normally, or if it is
damaged in any way — switch off, withdraw the mains plug and consult your dealer.
DON'T remove any fixed cover as this may expose dangerous voltages.
DON'T leave equipment switched on when it is unattended unless it is specifically stated that it is de-
DON'T
DON'T
DON'T
DON'T
DON'T
signed for unattended operation or has a standby mode. Switch off using the switch on the
equipment and make sure that your family knows how to do this. Special arrangements may need
to be made for infirm or handicapped people.
use equipment such as personal stereos or radios so that you are distracted from the requirements
of road safety. It is illegal to watch television whilst driving.
listen to headphones at high volume, as such use can permanently damage your hearing.
obstruct the ventilation of the equipment, for example with curtains or soft furnishings. Overheating will cause damage and shorten the life of the equipment.
use makeshift stands and NEVER fix legs with wood screws — to ensure complete safety always
fit the manufacturer's approved stand or legs with the fixings provided according to the instructions.
allow electrical equipment to be exposed to rain or moisture.
ABOVE ALL...
— NEVER let anyone especially children push anything into holes, slots or any other opening in the
case — this could result in a fatal electrical shock;
— NEVER guess or take chances with electrical equipment of any kind — it is better to be safe than
sorry!

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 Video Plus+, the
recorder will record a TV programme of a different station. When programming the timer using Video Plus+, be sure to check
that the preset position corresponding to the broadcasting station you wish to record has been selected (Z pg. 14, "Video
Plus+ 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 which have an unacceptable picture Z "Delete A Channel" on page 33.
n If any of the above problems occur, refer to pages 32 – 34 to input station names (Z "Set Stations") or delete unnecessary
stations ( Z "Delete A Channel"). You can also change station preset positions (Z "Change Station Preset Position").
ATTENTION
Once you have performed Auto Set Up, all the stored stations and their Guide Program numbers remain in the recorder's
memory and the recorder will not perform Auto Set Up again. If there is a power cut and the recorder's memory backup expires
you only need to reset the clock. (Z pg. 37)
If you have moved to a different area, perform each setting as required.

PDC Recording
Now available from some TV stations, PDC (Programme
Delivery Control) is a 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 which 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 from what has
been advertised. PDC is currently available nationally on
BBC1, BBC2, Ch.4 and Ch.5, except from a few small relay
transmitters. Ch.3 operates a PDC service only in a very
few areas. All channels intend to offer this service in due
course. Check your TV programme listing guide for latest
information. If the channel you intend to record does not
offer a PDC service your recorder will not start recording if
PDC has been selected. Be sure to set PDC to "OFF" if PDC
is not available on your selected channel. (Z step 5 in the
left column).
NOTES:
● PDC recording is also possible when a satellite receiver
or a cable system is connected to AV2 IN on your
recorder.
● PDC recording is also possible via the AV1 IN/OUT
connector.

● 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. 23).
● 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. 13).
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 when you are ready 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

the Auto Satellite Prog Rec mode.
● If there is more than one satellite programme you wish to record with Auto Satellite Prog Recording, it is not possible to set a
different tape speed for each; the tape speed selected in step 1 will apply to all the programmes for Auto Satellite Prog recording.
● The B.E.S.T. system (Z pg. 20) does not work while Auto Satellite Prog recording is in progress.
● Just Clock (Z pg. 37) does not work when the Auto Satellite Prog Rec mode is engaged.
● Depending on the type of satellite receiver, the recorder may not record a short portion at 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 receiver's power is on, the recorder will not start Auto
Satellite Prog recording even though the REC LINK indicator blinks. When the satellite receiver shuts off once and is turned back
on again, the recorder starts recording.
● You can also record a programme from your cable system in the same way if the system has a timer and is connected to the

NOTES:
● The Auto SP→LP Timer feature is not available during ITR
(Instant Timer Recording), and the feature will not work
properly with any tapes longer than E-180 or with some tapes
of shorter lengths.
● If you have programmed the recorder to timer-record 2 or more
programmes, the second programme and those thereafter may
not fit on the tape if you set "AUTO SP→LP TIMER" to "ON". In
this case, make sure the mode is not engaged, then set the tape
speed manually during timer programming.
● In order to ensure that the recording fits on the tape, this
feature may leave a short non-recorded section at the end of
the tape.
● There may be some picture noise and sound disturbance at
the point on the tape where the recorder switches from SP to
LP mode.
● If you perform timer recording with both PDC and the Auto
SP→LP Timer activated, and the programme goes beyond its
originally scheduled length, there may be times when the
programme cannot be recorded in its entirety.

Perform the following steps only if —
— Auto Channel Set has not been set correctly by Auto Set
Up function (Z pg. 8).
— you have moved to a different area or if a new station
starts broadcasting in your area.
Your recorder needs to memorise all necessary stations in preset
positions in order to record TV programmes. Auto Channel Set

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
properly, when you timer-record a TV programme using
Video Plus+, the recorder will record a TV programme of a
different station. When programming the timer using Video
Plus+, be sure to check that the preset position corresponding to the broadcasting station you wish to record has been
selected (Z pg. 14, "Video Plus+ 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 which have
an unacceptable picture Z "Delete A Channel" on page
33.
NOTES:
● Fine tuning is performed automatically during Auto Channel
Set. If you wish to perform it manually, refer to page 33.
● If, for any reason, you perform Auto Channel Set when the
