Special functions on your video recorder
This system ensures that your picture will be of the best possible quality. This is
made possible by a combination of Philips’ very latest technologies: Natural
Colour, Smart Picture, Digital Studio Picture Control and laser-cut video heads.
Natural Colour produces detailed pictures in clear colours.
Philips has developed a system which produces the best possible playback
quality. It reduces disturbance on old, worn video cassettes, and emphasises
the detail on very good quality cassettes.
This function allows you to save the playback settings that suit you best. Select
your own personal settings for the type of film you are currently watching.
By pressing the button once you obtain both simply and conveniently an
overview of your entire video archive. You never need to search again because
the tape manager stores all recordings and knows on which cassette they are
located.
Philips provides the best possible connection between your video recorder and
other home cinema equipment.
When you connect your video recorder to your television and plug it into the
mains, you will be welcomed with an OSD picture. All you have to do is follow
the instructions in the "intelligent help line" for the next step. Enjoy the Automatic
TV channel search/save function and the automatic time adjustment.
You can operate the main functions on your television using your video recorder
remote control, even if your television is not a Philips one.
We guarantee that your video recorder will switch to the new millennium with
no problems whatsoever.
Recordings made on your video recorder can be controlled by an external
satellite receiver.
This function automatically transfers all the television channel settings onto
your video recorder.
Your video recorder can ascertain which channel is currently playing on your
television and record from it at the touch of a button.
Simple programming system for video recorders. Makes programming as easy
as making a telephone call. Simply enter the programme code which you will
find in your listings magazine.

HOW TO CONNECT YOUR VIDEO RECORDER
Important for the United Kingdom
This machine is fitted with an approved moulded 13 Amp plug.
To change a fuse in this type of plug, please follow these
instructions.
How to connect your video recorder to the
TV set
We recommend the use of a scart cable. This will give you the
best picture and sound quality.
a Take off the fuse cover and take out the fuse.
b Put in a new fuse which should be a BS1362 3A, A.S.T.A.
or BSI approved type.
c Refit the fuse cover.
If the plug fitted is not suitable for your socket, cut it off and fit
another type.
If the plug you fit contains a fuse, it should be a 3Amp fuse. If
you fit a plug which does not need a fuse, make sure the fuse
on your fuse box is not greater than 5 Amps.
D Note: Please destroy the plug you have cut off so
that it cannot be used in a 13 Amp socket
somewhere else.
How to connect a plug
The wires in the lead from the video recorder are coloured as
follows.
* Blue - ’neutral’ (’N’).
* Brown - ’live’ (’L’).
d Connect the blue wire to the terminal in the plug which is
marked with the letter ’N’ or coloured black.
e Connect the brown wire to the terminal in the plug which
is marked with the letter ’L’ or coloured red.
f Do not connect either of the wires to the terminal in the
plug which is marked with the letter ’E’, the symbol \or
coloured green or green and yellow.
Before you refit the plug cover, make sure that the grip at the
bottom of the plug is clamped over the plastic cover of the
lead, not just over the two wires.

PROGRAMMED RECORDING (TIMER)
Use programmed recording to automatically start and stop a
recording at a later date.
To make a programmed recording, your video recorder needs
to know:
* the date you want to make the recording;
* the programme number for the TV channel you want to
record;
* the start and stop time of the recording;
* VPS/PDC on or off
* the recording speed (SP/LP)
The video recorder stores all the information in a TIMER block.
You can programme up to 6 TIMER blocks a month in advance.
’VPS’ (Video Programming System) and
’PDC’ (Programme Delivery Control)
With ’VPS and PDC’, the TV station controls the start time and
the length of the recording. This means that the video recorder
switches itself on and off at the right time even if a TV
programme you want to record begins earlier or finishes later
than expected.
You must enter the start time exactly to the minute.
If you want to programme a time that is different from the VPS
or PDC time, you must switch off VPS or PDC.
d Enter the entire PlusCode-programming number (up to 9
digits) printed in your TV guide next to the start time of a
TV programme.
For example, 5-234-89 or 5 234 89
Enter 523489 for the PlusCode-programming number.
If you make a mistake, you can clear your instructions
