Lining up recordings (assemble cut)

When you add a further recording to a cassette, which already has a recording on it, a short blank

(flicker) can appear between the old and the new recording or the picture itself can flicker. To help reduce these from occurring, proceed as follows:

1.

Find the tape position of the old recording where you want to insert the new recording.

2.

Look at the last minute of the old recording

(playback).

Preventing accidental erasing

All cassettes (except rental and pre-recorded cassettes) have a security tab on the back of the cassette.

To prevent recording over important recordings (erasing), you can remove this security tab.

If you later decide to record on a protected cassette, simply cover the hole with adhesive tape or slide the tab to the right.

7. Programming a recording (TIMER)

General information

Use a TIMER programming to automatically start and stop a recording at a later time or date. The

TV-Video Combi will switch to the right programme number and begin recording at the correct time. With this TV-Video Combi, you can pre-programme up to eight recordings within a period of one year. To make a programmed recording, your TV-Video Combi needs to know:

* the date you want to make the recording

* the programme number of the TV channel

* the start and stop time of the recording

* PDC on or off [14PV235 / 21PV385]

This information is saved in a 'TIMER' block.

[14PV235 / 21PV385]

What is 'PDC'?

'PDC' (Programme Delivery Control) is used to control the start and duration of TV channel recordings. If a TV programme starts earlier or ends later than scheduled, the TV-Video Combi will turn on and off at the correct time.

What do I need to know about 'PDC'?

Usually the PDC time is the same as the start time. But if your TV guide shows a PDC time which is different from the programme’s scheduled start time, e.g. 20.10 (PDC 20.14), you must enter the PDC time exactly to the minute.

If you want a start time different from the PDC time, you must switch PDC off.
