VIDEO Plus+ Codes for Satellite Receivers / Set Top Box
This VCR is not designed to control (switch on or change channel) your
satellite receiver or Set Top Box, however, it can be taught to recognise
VIDEO Plus+ Codes for Satellite stations. The Satellite Receiver or Set Top
Box must be switched on and the correct station selected. Some receivers
have their own timer facility for this purpose. Please refer to your Satellite
Receiver/Set Top Box instructions for use of such timer facilities.
For your VCR to recognise the VIDEO Plus+ Codes for each satellite station,
you must teach your VCR which channel or AV input to record from for the
first time. Otherwise when setting a VIDEO Plus+ recording, the [- -] symbol
will appear in the channel position indicating that the VCR does not know
which channel position to set. Once you have set the channel/AV input once
