switched off.
• Make sure that both the television and the DVD-VCR are switched off before connecting the cables.
1. Connect the RF cable as indicated in the previous previous section.
2. Connect one end of the SCART cable to the AV1 (EURO AV) socket on the rear of the

which is used by the DVD-VCR, e.g. re-adjust
to channel 65.
Getting Connected
