ANTENNA INSTALLATION
INSTRUCTIONS
1. Outdoor Antenna Grounding
INSTALLATION
1. Grounding or Polarization
(A) Your product may be equipped with a polarized alternatingcurrent line plug (a plug having one blade wider than the
other). This plug will fit into the power outlet only one way.
This is a safety feature.
If you are unable to insert the plug fully into the outlet, try
reversing the plug. If the plug should still fail to fit, contact
your electrician to replace your obsolete outlet. Do not
defeat the safety purpose of the polarized plug.
(B) Your product may be equipped with a 3-wire grounding-type
plug, a plug having a third (grounding) pin. This plug will
only fit into a grounding-type power outlet. This is a safety
feature.
If you are unable to insert the plug into the outlet, contact
your electrician to replace your obsolete outlet. Do not
defeat the safety purpose of the grounding-type plug.
2. Power Sources
Operate your product only from the type of power source
indicated on the marking label. If you are not sure of the type of
power supply to your home, consult your product dealer or
local power company. If your product is intended to operate
from battery power, or other sources, refer to the operating
instructions.
3. Overloading
Do not overload wall outlets, extension cords, or integral
convenience receptacles as this can result in a risk of fire or
electric shock.
If an outside antenna or cable system is connected to the
product, be sure the antenna or cable system is grounded so as
to provide some protection against voltage surges and built-up
static charges. Article 810 of the National Electrical Code,
ANSI/NFPA 70, provides information with regard to proper
grounding of the mast and supporting structure, grounding of
the lead-in wire to an antenna discharge unit, size of grounding
connectors, location of antenna discharge unit, connection to
grounding electrodes, and requirements for the grounding
electrode.
2. Lightning
For added protection for this product during a lightning storm,
or when it is left unattended and unused for long periods of
time, unplug it from the wall outlet and disconnect the antenna
or cable system. This will prevent damage to the product due to
lightning and power-line surges.
3. Power Lines
An outside antenna system should not be located in the vicinity
of overhead power lines or other electric light or power circuits,
or where it can fall into such power lines or circuits. When
installing an outside antenna system, extreme care should be
taken to keep from touching such power lines or circuits as
contact with them might be fatal.

INITIAL SETTINGS
Plug & Play
Setting
Auto Clock Set/Auto Tuner Set
ATTENTION
● If you use a cable box, Plug & Play will not function; set
the clock and tuner channels separately. (Z pg.10 – 14)
● It takes several minutes for the VCR to complete the Plug
& Play setting.
● Do not press any buttons on the front panel or on the
Remote while Plug & Play is in progress.
During Initial Auto Clock Set
“Auto” blinks.
9
This VCR sets the clock and tuner channels
automatically when AC power cord is first connected to
an AC outlet. The antenna cable must be connected for
the Plug & Play setting.
The time and date can be set automatically by the clock
setting data transmitted from one of the regular TV
broadcast channels. We call this TV channel the “host
channel” and it is a PBS channel in your area.
1 Perform Plug & Play setup
Connect the antenna cable to the VCR
(Z pg. 7). Then connect the AC power cord to
an AC outlet. Do not turn on the VCR.
The clock and tuner channels will be set
automatically.
NOTES:
● Auto Clock Set is performed first.
“Auto” blinks on the front display panel during Auto
Clock Set.
● Auto Channel Set is performed next. Auto Channel
Set scans all the channels that are receivable by your
VCR. During Auto Channel Set, the channel numbers
are displayed as they are scanned and set.
● When Plug & Play setting has been complete
successfully, the correct clock time is displayed. If you
perform Plug & Play setting successfully, there is no
need to perform the clock ( Z pg. 10) and tuner
(Z␣ pg.␣ 13) settings. If, however, you want to add or
delete channels, and use the ghost reduction function,
refer to Manual Channel Set on page 14.
During Auto Channel Set
The channel numbers are displayed
as they are scanned and set.
Plug & Play Completed
The current time (including
AM/PM) is displayed.
* If an incorrect clock time or “– –:– –” appears on the display panel, see “What to do if Plug & Play setting failed”
below.
INFORMATION
● If “AUTO CLOCK” is set to “ON” on the Clock Set screen on page 11, the clock will be adjusted automatically by the host
channel every hour (except 11:00 PM, midnight, 1:00 AM and 2:00 AM) using the incoming PBS channel clock setting data.
(This automatic clock adjustment can only be performed when the VCR is turned off. The clock will be adjusted just on these
hours — on the time displayed on the front display panel, not on the actual real time.)
The default setting of “AUTO CLOCK” is “ON”.
● If the memory backup fails, because a power outage occurs or because the AC power cord is unplugged, Plug & Play will be
performed when power is restored to the VCR.
● Poor antenna or cable signal may prevent the VCR from receiving the Auto clock setting data from the PBS channel. If this
function is taking a considerable amount of time, it may be necessary to perform the Semiauto or Manual Clock Set
procedure.
What to do if Plug & Play setting failed
● If an incorrect time is displayed on the front display panel, you may be receiving the clock setting data of a PBS channel from

The following procedure is required if you receive your
TV channels through a cable box (descrambler). The
Controller allows the VCR to automatically switch the
cable box channel during timer recording. The
Controller is effective for recording broadcasts that have
been programmed using VCR Plus+ (Z pg. 34) or
Express timer programing (Z pg. 38).
Installing Controller
Suggested location
Place the cable box on top of the VCR. Attach the VCR’s
Controller to the top of the VCR with the Controller’s
transmitter pointed towards the cable box’s remote
sensor.
ATTENTION:
The Controller can also control a DBS receiver. If both a cable
box and a DBS receiver are used, position the Controller so its
signal reaches the remote sensors on both the cable box and
DBS receiver.
Cable box
1 Situate Controller
Place the Controller so that its transmitter is
facing the cable box’s remote sensor.
● Make sure the path between the Controller and
the cable box’s remote sensor is not blocked.

switch the DBS receiver’s channels during timer recording.
NOTES:
● The VCR can automatically change the DBS receiver
channels using the Controller when the VCR has been
programed using Express timer programing (Z pg. 38).
Because satellite programing does not use PlusCode, the
Controller cannot change the DBS receiver channels during
VCR Plus+ timer recording.
(You can also use “Satellite Auto Recording” (Z pg. 60) if
your DBS receiver is equipped with a timer.)
● If a cable box is also used, it is recommended that you connect
the DBS receiver to your VCR’s audio/video input connectors
and the cable box to your VCR’s antenna input terminal.

“Changing VCR Plus+ Setting”)
NOTES:
● Even if a power failure occurs, the VCR keeps your timer
programs. However, the clock time, channel settings, and
other menu settings are lost if it lasts for more than 3 minutes.
As a result, when the power is supplied again to this VCR
after the power failure, the following will take place.
1. This VCR starts the Plug & Play setting automatically to
restore the clock time and channel setting.
2. If the clock time and channel setting are restored correctly,
each timer program you have made will start at its start
time unless its end time has elapsed.
● To timer-record cable channels received through a cable box,
be sure to keep the cable box turned on.
● If “MEMORY FULL” appears on the display when you finish a
program setting, the VCR’s memory for the Video Navigation
function is full (Z pg. 42). This is not related to actual
recording, so you can finish recording normally, but the Video
Navigation information such as recording date, start time, end
time, and channel number will not be stored in memory.

To ensure that VCR Plus+ timer recording operates
correctly, it is necessary to set the VCR Plus+ “Guide
Channel Set” for each station. Read the following
information carefully.
VCR Plus+ guide channel matching
The VCR Plus+ programing system assigns a VCR Plus+
guide channel to the TV channels and the cable
channels. These guide channel numbers are also called
the VCR Plus+ channel codes. Most TV listings have a
section, usually a chart, indicating the guide channel
numbers assigned to each station. For accurate VCR
Plus+ programing, the VCR Plus+ guide channel number
for each station should match the channel number on
which it is received in your area.

● In many instances, the VCR Plus+ guide channel numbers for
cable and broadcast TV stations DO NOT match the channel
number on which it is received by your VCR or cable box.
Check your TV listing, or contact your cable supplier for
details.
● Many TV stations can be viewed on cable. Check your TV

* The default setting is bold in the table below.
When this function is set to “ON”, this VCR checks the condition of the
tape in use during playback and recording, and compensates to provide
the highest-possible pictures. This takes place whenever you play back a
tape or start recording after inserting a tape.
NOTES:
● During playback, this function is always working even though “V,
CALIBRATION” appears just at the beginning of automatic tracking.
● During recording, this function works only for the first EP recording and the first
SP recording on an inserted tape.
For timer recording, this function checks the tape condition both for the SP
recording and the EP recording before the first timer recording starts.
● When you play back rental tapes or tapes recorded on other VCRs, set this
function either “ON” or “OFF” whichever gives you the best picture.

This function helps you to adjust the playback picture quality according
to your preference.
AUTO: Normally select this. Picture quality is adjusted
(NORM) automatically. When “V, CALIBRATION” is “OFF”,
“NORM” will appear instead of “AUTO”.
EDIT:
Minimizes picture degradation during editing (recording
and playback).
SOFT:
Reduces image coarseness when viewing overplayed tapes
containing much noise.
SHARP: Clearer, sharper-edged picture when viewing images with
much flat, same-colored surfaces such as cartoons.
NOTES:
● When you select “EDIT”, “SOFT” or “SHARP”, the selected mode will not
change until you select again.
● Select “EDIT” when you are editing tapes (Z pg. 62, 64). After you finish editing
the tapes, select “AUTO” (“NORM” when “V, CALIBRATION” is “OFF”.)
m DIGITAL R3 (S-VHS/VHS only)
ON
OFF
When this function is set to “ON”, edge correction to the luminance
signal is performed to enhance details. Normally set this function to
“ON”.
NOTES:
● Depending on the type of tape being used, picture quality may be better with
“DIGITAL R3” set to “OFF”.
● If you use this VCR as the playback VCR for editing, be sure to set “DIGITAL
R3” to “OFF” before starting.
m VIDEO STABILIZER
(S-VHS/VHS only)
ON
OFF
When this function is set to “ON”, you can automatically correct vertical
vibrations in the picture when playing back unstable recordings made on
another VCR.
NOTES:
● When you finish viewing a tape, be sure to set this function to “OFF”.
● Regardless of the setting, this function has no effect during recording and during
special effects playback.
● The on-screen display may jitter vertically when this function is set to “ON”.
● To watch recordings with close-caption, set this function to “OFF”.

What is “i.LINK?”
i.LINK Connection Examples
“i.LINK” is a digital serial interface that allows devices
equipped with an i.LINK connector to exchange digital
video signals, digital audio signals, and device control
signals bi-directionally over a single cable.
Examples of good i.LINK connections and bad i.LINK
connections are shown below. The digital signals flow
to all connected devices. When connecting i.LINK
devices, make sure that the devices are connected in
such a way that digital signals do not return (loop back)
to the device that output them. Looped connection is
not permitted.
i.Link refers to the IEEE1394-1995 industry specification and
extensions thereof. The logo is used for products compliant
with the i.Link standard.
This VCR uses a four-pin i.LINK connector to input and
output MPEG2 video signals, audio signals, and control
signals. The i.LINK connector is also used as an input
for DV compressed signals from the DV output of a
digital video camera.

Any two devices in the daisy chain can exchange data
bi-directionally, even if there are other devices
connected between them.
i.LINK also supports a “repeater function” that passes
input MPEG2 and DV signals through to the next device
in the chain.
i.LINK Branched Connection
If you are connecting a device that is equipped with
three or more i.LINK connectors, you can also branch
the i.LINK connection.

NOTE:
● You can connect as many as 63 devices (including this VCR) through an i.LINK connection. If you use a branched i.LINK
connection, however, the maximum path length on a branch is 17 devices.
● In the case of a personal computer and some other devices, data is not passed along by those devices if the device power is off.
Furthermore, data is not passed along by this VCR when “FRONT DISPLAY” is set to “OFF” on this VCR (Z pg. 56).
For details, refer to the instruction manual for the connected device.
● The maximum data transfer speed supported by the i.LINK connector on this VCR is 200Mbps (approximately 200 megabits per
second). The maximum data transfer speed that is actually attained may be slower depending on how this VCR is used or if a
device with a slower transfer speed is connected to this VCR.

recording and goes off when signals stop coming
in.
• Each time you press the button, Satellite Auto
Recording standby mode turns on and off.
When it is off, “L-1” disappears.
IMPORTANT: Be sure not to turn on the DBS receiver
before the program starts broadcasting; otherwise, the
VCR will start recording when the DBS receiver is
turned on.
NOTES:
● While the Satellite Auto Recording standby mode or after Satellite Auto Recording is finished, the VCR will not enter the timer
recording standby mode even though “AUTO TIMER” is set to “ON”. (Z pg. 56)
● If you turn off this VCR while Satellite Auto Recording is in progress, recording stops.
● Video Calibration (Z pg. 53) does not work while Satellite Auto Recording is in progress.
● Auto Clock (Z pg. 11) does not work while in the Satellite Auto Recording standby mode.
● The VCR may not record a short portion at the beginning of the program or may record slightly longer than the actual length of the
program when Satellite Auto Recording method is used.
● If you engage the Satellite Auto Recording standby mode while the DBS receiver is turned on, the VCR will not start Satellite Auto
Recording, and “Err L-1” appears on the front display panel. When you turn off the DBS receiver, “L-1” appears instead of “Err L-1”
and the VCR enters the Satellite Auto Recording standby mode.
● If you have connected another component other than a DBS receiver (or cable box) to the AUDIO/VIDEO IN or S VIDEO IN (L-1)
connectors, be sure not to engage the Satellite Auto Recording standby mode; otherwise, the VCR will start recording when the
connected component is turned on.
● Satellite Auto Recording and timer-recording cannot be performed at the same time.
● If the “L-1” blinks quickly on the front display panel in the Satellite Auto Recording standby mode (even though your DBS receiver
is turned off), Satellite Auto Recording will not work properly.
If this is the case, perform “Express Timer Programing” (Z pg. 38) to timer-record a satellite program.
(Some DBS receivers output signals even if the power is off. Satellite Auto Recording is not possible with those DBS receivers.)

To DV output
The following three methods can be used for editing tapes.
● VHS to S-VHS editing (VIDEO-VIDEO connection):
Although the picture quality is inherently limited by the
original VHS quality, the edited tape has better picture
quality than those made by VHS-to-VHS editing.
● S-VHS to VHS editing (VIDEO-VIDEO connection):
Since the original source is recorded in S-VHS mode, the
edited tape has better picture quality than those made by
VHS-to-VHS editing.
● S-VHS to S-VHS editing (S-VIDEO connection): Original
picture quality of S-VHS made can be duplicated with
minimal picture degradation. This is the best editing
method you can use on S-VHS VCRs.
● DV to D-VHS editing (DV connection): If your camcorder
has a DV connector, D-VHS recording (HS/STD/LS3
mode) is possible with this VCR.
However, this VCR can be used only as a recording VCR.

This Remote is capable of transmitting two control
codes; one set to respond to A code control signals and
another set to respond to B code control signals.
This Remote control is preset to send A code signals
because your VCR is initially set to respond to A code
signals. You can easily modify your VCR and the Remote
to respond to B code signals.
When using two JVC VCRs, set two VCRs and their
Remotes to different codes, so that you can operate these
VCRs separately.

MOISTURE CONDENSATION
Moisture in the air will condense on the VCR when you move it from a cold place to a warm place, or under
extremely humid conditions—just as water droplets form on 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
VCR turned on for a few hours to evaporate the moisture before inserting a tape.
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.
ATTENTION
This VCR contains microcomputers. External electronic noise or interference can cause microcomputer to malfunction. If the
VCR does not operate correctly switch its power off and unplug the AC power cord from the AC supply. Wait for a while and
then plug the power back in. Eject and check the condition of the cassette. If everything appears normal, you can operate the

TROUBLESHOOTING (cont.)
Questions and answers
PLAYBACK
RECORDING
Q. What happens if the tape reaches its end during
playback or search?
A. The VCR automatically rewinds it to the beginning.
............................................
Q. Can the VCR indefinitely remain in still mode?
A. No. It stops automatically after 5 minutes to protect
the heads.
............................................
Q. During picture search, still picture playback and
frame-by-frame playback, the picture is
intermittent. What’s the cause?
A. Picture loss occurs when these types of playback are
attempted with a tape recorded in LP mode. Pressing
PLAY ( 3 ) to return to normal playback will restore
the picture.
............................................
Q. When returning from variable-speed picture search
to normal playback, the picture is disturbed. Should
I be concerned about this?
A. No, it is normal.
............................................
Q. When playing back programs that have been timerrecorded consecutively (such one program from
8:00 to 9:00 and another one from 9:00 to 10:00),
the picture and sound become momentarily
distorted where the first program ends and the
second program begins. Is this a malfunction?
A. No. This is normal.
............................................
Q. Other than preventing further recording, what
effect does removing the safety tab have?
A. It disables marking of index codes and tape numbers
for Video Navigation.
............................................
Q. Sometimes, during index search, the VCR cannot
find the program I want to see. Why not?
A. There may be index codes too close together.
............................................
Q. During playback, on-screen display sometimes
jitters. Why does this happen?
A. If the condition of the tape being played back is not
good, jittering of the video (including on-screen
display) may occur.
Q. When I pause and then resume a recording, the end
of the recording before the pause is overlapped by
the new recording. Why does this happen?
A. This is normal. It reduces distortion at the pause and
resume points.
............................................
Q. Can the VCR indefinitely remain in the recording
pause mode?
A. No. The VCR automatically stops after 5 minutes to
protect the heads. When paused during Instant Timer
Recording (ITR), the VCR shuts off automatically after
5 minutes.
............................................
Q. What happens if the tape reaches its end during
recording?
A. The VCR automatically rewinds it to the beginning.
TIMER RECORDING
Q. REC and ‰ remain lit on the front display panel. Is
there a problem?
A. No. This is a normal condition for a timer recording
in progress.
............................................
Q. Can I program the timer while I’m watching a tape
or a TV broadcast?
A. Yes, but while you are setting the timer you will not
see the tape’s or broadcast program’s picture as it is
replaced by the on-screen menu. (The sound from
the tape or broadcast program will be heard during
the timer setting.)
