Connecting an Antenna
or Cable TV
To view or record a CATV channel
1
Tune the TV to the DVD+VCR output channel
(CH 3 or 4).
a Antenna:
Disconnect the antenna from the rear of the TV and
identify the antenna cable. If it is a round 75 ohm
coaxial cable connect it directly to the jack marked
ANT.IN on your DVD+VCR. If your antenna cable is
flat connect it to a 300-ohm to 75-ohm antenna adaptor (not supplied) and slip the adaptor over the
ANT.IN jack. Don’t attempt to screw it into to the
DVD+VCR.
2
Set the DVD+VCR channel selector to the cable
output channel. (Example: CH3)
3
Select a channel using the cable converter.
Notes:
•
With this connection, you cannot record one program
while viewing another.
•
If you are using a cable box to tune channels, it is not
necessary to do Auto Channel Set.
b Cable TV:
If your cable connection has no converter or
descrambler, unscrew the cable from your TV and
attach it to the ANT.IN jack on the DVD+VCR. If a
converter is required connect a coaxial cable from the
wall jack to the IN connector on the converter, and a
coaxial cable from the OUT connector on the converter to the ANT.IN on your DVD+VCR. This cable
hookup permits both TV and DVD+VCR operation.

The DVD+VCR has two separate audio playback systems, the high quality VHS Hi-Fi system and standard
NORMAL mono system. The same audio is generally
recorded on both systems. The VHS Hi-Fi system
plays on separate (left and right) channels, and the
NORMAL system plays monaural sound. The normal
track is always played so the cassette can be played
on a DVD+VCR that does not have VHS Hi-Fi.
BROADCAST TYPE (STEREO/SAP/MONO)
Multichannel Television Sound (MTS) carries stereo
and/or Second Audio Program (SAP) bilingual signals. Set this display to the desired position when
both MTS stereo and SAP signals are received.
When only one of the MTS signal is received, the
DVD+VCR automatically selects the corresponding
receiving mode (Stereo or SAP) regardless of the
selected position. For normal operation, the display
should be in the STEREO position. The DVD+VCR
will then record a STEREO program when available,
and record a mono program IF the program is NOT
IN STEREO. For weak STEREO and/or SAP broadcasts, changing the display to mono may give clearer
sound.
AUDIO OUTPUT (STEREO/LEFT/RIGHT)
Used during playback [when AUDIO MODE (HIFI/NORMAL) is in HI-FI position] for selecting the
audio output signals from the AUDIO OUT terminals
(L ch and R ch), and RF.OUT. This display setting
should normally be left in the stereo position, so that
when a stereo tape is played, the stereo sound will
be heard through the left and right channels. If a
mono tape is played and the audio output is set to
stereo, the same mono sound will be heard from both
left and right channels.
You can display various information about the disc
loaded on-screen.

the connection of this unit to a home stereo audio
system.
1. Set the AUDIO MODE option to HI-FI on the VCR
SETUP menu .
20
The other options are (LEFT) POSITION, which
results in the left channel sound (L) being heard
from both speakers or (RIGHT) POSITION, which
results in the right channel sound (R) being heard
from both speakers.
This DVD+VCR can decode MTS stereo and bilingual
(SAP) off-the-air broadcast sound signals. It also
decodes stereo TV sound from local cable companies
as long as they operate on assigned cable frequencies and use the EIA-recommended MTS stereo/bilingual TV sound system.
Multichannel TV Sound Indicator (MTS)
When you press ENTER/OK one or both of the indicators appears on the TV Screen.
STEREO
The DVD+VCR can record in stereo onto the VHS
Hi-Fi audio tracks when the BROADCAST TYPE

Use the BROADCAST TYPE option to select the
desired recording mode (STEREO or SAP).
Basic Instructions
1. Turn on the DVD+VCR and TV.

If you have CABLE TV and use a cable box (converter) you must set the channel to match the
cable box output channel (usually CH 3 or 4).
Change channels on the cable box instead of with
the DVD+VCR. If you use a cable converter, you
can program multiple recordings only on the converter box output channel. This is because the
converter determines what channel you view
through your DVD+VCR.
SPEED: AUTO mode determines how much tape
is left and switches the speed from SP to SLP if it
is necessary to complete recording the program. If
this occurs there could be some picture and
sound distortion at the point where the speed
changes.
REPEAT: To record up to 8 programs on a certain
day of every week select WEEKLY. To record up
to 8 programs at the same time Monday through
Friday select DAILY. Otherwise select ONCE.
