If your cable system does not require the use of a
cable box, simply press or screw the incoming cable
onto the antenna terminal on the back your TV.
If your cable system requires you to use a converter box for all channels, connect the
incoming cable to the IN terminal on the converter box. Connect another cable between the
OUT terminal on the converter box and the antenna terminal on the TV. You will need to
keep your TV tuned to channel 3 or 4 and change channels using the converter box.
Chapter 2 : Connecting an Antenna or Cable to Your TV/VCR
11
If your cable system only requires you to use a converter box for some channels (i. e.
pay-TV channels), follow these steps: Find the primary incoming coaxial cable. Plug this
cable into a splitter (available at your local electronics store). Connect one coaxial cable
between one OUT terminal on the splitter and the IN terminal on the converter box. Connect
another coaxial cable between the other OUT terminal on the splitter and the A-IN terminal on
an A/B switch (available at your local electronics store.) Connect a third coaxial cable
between the OUT terminal on the converter box and the B-IN terminal on the A/B switch.
Finally, connect a coaxial cable between the OUT terminal on the A/B switch and the antenna
terminal on the back of your TV/VCR.
When the A/B switch is in the A position, you can change channels on the TV/VCR; when
the A/B switch is in the B position, you, need to change channels on the converter box (and
your TV should be tuned to channel 3 or 4)
Connecting Other Pieces of Equipment
You may want to connect a VCR, laser disc player, satellite receiver, or another type of equipment to your TV/VCR. We recommend that you follow the instructions included with the
piece of equipment you wish to connect.
If you connect other pieces of equipment to your TV/VCR using the audio/video jacks on the
front panel, you will need to use the TV/LINE button on the remote control to view the signal
coming through these jacks. See page 41 for more information.
Safety Notes
If you plan on being away from your home for an extended period of time, or if a thunderstorm is approaching, you should unplug your television, and you may wish to disconnect
your TV from a rooftop or satellite antenna. You do not need to disconnect your TV from a
cable system.

Protecting your tapes
You can protect your tapes by removing the erasure prevention tab on the back of the tape.
When this tab is removed, VCR cannot record over it. To once again be able to record on a
tape with its tab removed, simply place a piece of tape over the space left by the removed tab.
Inserting a Tape
To insert a tape into your TV/VCR, hold it so that the windows on the tape face up, and the label of the tape faces
away from the TV/VCR. Gently place the tape in the cassette compartment and push it in slowly. Once it is in the
compartment part-way, the TV/VCR will pull the tape the
rest of the way.
You can insert a tape into your TV/VCR even when it is
turned off. If the tape has its erasure prevention tab removed, the TV/VCR will turn on and
begin playing the tape.
Ejecting a tape
To remove a tape from the compartment, press the STOP/EJECT button on the front panel or
on the remote control. The TV/VCR will eject the tape part-way. Grasp the cassette and

Index Search (VISS)
Your TV/VCR is equipped with the VHS Index Search System, or VISS. The VISS allows
“index marks” to be placed on a video tape. These marks are similar to bookmarks - you can
use the search system to quickly find these marks, and thereby find a point on the tape quickly.
Your TV/VCR automatically places an index mark on the tape every time it begins a recording session. Therefore, if you record six programs at six different times on a tape, there will be
six index marks on the tape.
To search for an index mark:
1. Place a tape with index marks in your TV/VCR.
2. If the index mark is ahead on the tape, press the VISS+ button; if the index mark is behind
on the tape, press VISS- button. The tape will fast forward or rewind (without picture) until
it finds the index mark. Then, it will begin playing.
3. You can search further than the next index mark. For example, if you know that the show
you want is three index marks behind, you can press the VISS- button three times. The
TV/VCR will search for the third index mark, then begin playing.
VCRs and TV/VCRs from other manufacturers sometimes use the same VISS system.
Therefore, you may be able to search for index marks on tapes that were recorded on other
VCRs.
Your TV/VCR cannot detect index marks unless they are least one minute apart on the tape.
