Your TV set receives the video recorder signal like another TV

Take care to select this programme number, whenever you control the video recorder, or watch a recording. Only if you have
selected this programme number, which we call video programme number, you will see the picture from the video
recorder on the screen.
If you connect a monitor or a TV set equipped with EURO
