To Prepare the Satellite Receiver
To make it possible for the VCR to control the satellite
receiver, the satellite receiver must be left in a certain
condition. This condition is called standby type, and it differs
depending on the make and model of satellite receiver. There
are five standby types (A, B, C, D, E) as listed below.
Find your satellite receiver in the enclosed list of compatible
satellite receivers and note its standby type. Then look up this
standby type in the chart below and determine which
action(s) you need to take to prepare your satellite receiver so
that this VCR can control it.
Standby

correctly.
¢ With some satellite receivers, correct control from the
VCR may not be possible.
* There may be a slight delay between pressing the
Numeric buttons @ on the remote control and the
changing of the channel on the satellite receiver. This is
due to the need for signal conversion.
® The range of satellite channels available for selection is 1

® Some satellite receivers offer less than 99 channels. In
this case, the number of the satellite channels that can be
controlled from the VCR is the same.
e Some satellite receivers offer more than 99 satellite
channels, but even in this case, only the satellite channels
1 through 99 can be controlled from the VCR.
® With some satellite receivers, it is necessary to wait a few
seconds between selecting one channel and selecting
another one with the remote control of the VCR.

Tape Library System
This advanced system makes it quick and easy to check the contents of an inserted cassette. It can also be used to quickly find
out which cassette in your collection contains a desired programme.
Whenever a cassette with an intact erasure prevention tab is inserted, the VCR first performs a brief check and then shows the
number of the cassette and its contents on the On Screen Display. To start playback of the desired programme, simply select it
on the On Screen Display and press the LIBRARY button €.
To index each recorded programme for the Tape Library System, this VCR automatically records the Library data (cassette
number, title”, name of TV station*?, recording time/date*°, category**, etc.) and stores the data in the VCR's memory” when
the recording is performed.
“In case of TV stations that broadcast with EPG (Electronic Programme Guide) information, the title of the TV programme is
entered automatically. Otherwise, the name of the TV station or the programme position number is entered instead.
In case of a TV station without EPG information but with Teletext information, the title of the TV programme is entered
automatically, provided the “Title page" is correctly set. (See page 43.)
* In case of a TV station with Teletext information, the name of the TV station is recorded automatically.
* The VCR's clock must be set correctly.
* In case of a TV station with EPG information, the programme category will be recorded automatically.
* The VCR’s memory can hold a maximum of 600 programmes with titles of 8 characters (or up to 900 programmes with tities
of fewer characters).
Precautions for Recording:
e We recommend that you use new tapes for recording.
e Each recorded programme should have length of at least 15 minutes in the SP or LP mode.
e Each recorded programme should have length of at least 25 minutes in the EP mode.
* If you copy a cassette with a cassette number, the tape library data may not be copied correctly. Therefore, the VCR's Tape
Library System may not work correctly with such a copied cassette.
* When a new recording is made over existing recordings on a tape, the original programmes are deleted from the list.
e Before recording programmes, make sure that the tape length is set correctly on the On Screen Display. (See page 46.)
Otherwise, the tape position bar of the Tape Library data does not display the actual tape position. With some tapes, the bar
indication is not accurate.
* The VCR's power back-up system protects the Tape Library data in the memory in case of a power failure and stores it for up
to 5 years when the VCR is not connected to an AC mains socket.
e When the recording is completed and you eject the cassette, the cassette number remains displayed on the VCR display for
approximately 30 seconds. Be sure to write this number on the cassette label. NE а
* When the VCR's entire memory area has been used up by the Tape Library data, or when cassette numbers 1 through 999
have ail been used, the indication “Library memory full!” appears on the TV screen for several seconds when recording is
completed. After this, recording is still possible but no new Tape Library data can be stored. In this case, delete the numbers
of cassettes that you do not need any more before making further recordings. (See page 34.)

To Change the Title Teletext Page Number
(Title page)
When recording a programme from your television, this video
recorder has the capability to also record the TITLE of the
programme. This means that you will easily be able to identify
which programmes are recorded on the tape for future
reference,
This is achieved by using information currently provided by
the Broadcasters on the “Title page” Programme guide pages
of the Teletext service.
Currently this information is transmitted by the broadcasters
‚on the following Teletext page numbers:
BBC1 (page 601), BBC2 (page 602), ITV (page 113),
Channel 4 (page 114) and Channel 5 (page 125).
These page numbers are pre-set on the VCR at production.
Should broadcasters change the page numbers of this
service; you can change the corresponding page numbers on
the VCR by following the instructions below (see steps 1 to 9).
The VCR relies on the accuracy of the information provided
by the broadcasters. Should this information for any reason
be inaccurate or should the broadcasters change the detail of
the information provided, this may result in incorrect
programme titles being recorded. Should this occur, it is
possible to change the titles manually by following the
instructions on page 33.
This is not a VCR malfunction.
In soma cases a programme title may begin with the station
name e.g. BBC1/BBC2/ITV etc. In this instance the VCR may
only record the details of the station name and not the full title
of the programme. Should this occur, it is possible to change
the tities manually by following the instructions on page 33.
This is not a VCR malfunction.

Glossary
PDC (Programme Delivery Control)
What is PDC?
PDC is a special signal transmitted by certain TV stations
together with the normal TV signal. This signal ensures that a
TV programme which has been programmed for timer
recording will be recorded precisely from beginning to end,
even if itis delayed or extended compared to the published
broadcasting time. Furthermore, if a programme is interrupted
by a news flash, etc., the timer recording is also interrupted,
and resumes when the programme restarts.
How to Use PDC?
(1) This VCR detects whether or not a TV station transmits
PDC signal at the time of tuning only, and it stores this
information in its memory.
If a TV station introduces or discontinues PDC
transmissions later on, tuning must be performed again to
update the VCR's memory.
(2) When you use VIDEO Plus+ Code for timer programming,
the PDC mode is automatically set to “OFF” even if the
station has been memorized by the VCR as having PDC
transmission.
(3) When you use VIDEO Plus+ Code for timer programming
for a TV station that has been memorized by the VCR as
not having PDC transmission, the PDC mode is
automatically set to “———" (no PDC).
(4) To perform PDC recording for a TV station that transmits
PDC signals, set the PDC mode to “ON” and ensure that
the start time is set exactly to the time published, for
example, in newspapers, magazines, etc. If that is set
correctly, the timer recording does not start.
Notes on PDC Recording:
(1) PDC recording will start several seconds before the
broadcast programme commences and may stop several
seconds before or after the end of the programme,
depending on the control from the TV station.
(2) Normally, the programming date for a timer recording is
automatically cancelled as soon as the recording is
completed.
Under the following conditions, however, the programmed
timer recording data will automatically be cancelled at 4 a.
m. of the next day.
(a) When the VCR performs normal timer recording
(without PDC control) because the PDC signal cannot
be detected during PDC timer recording.
(b) When a timer recording is incomplete due to
insufficient tape or cancellation by the user.
(c) If the TV station transmits a PDC signal to suspend or
interrupt the recording.
In these cases, the VCR remains in the timer recording
standby mode after the timer recording has been stopped.
(3) If “PDC” is manually set to “ON” for a TV station which
does not transmit a PDC signal, the VCR performs normal
timer recording (without PDG control).
(4) If several timer recordings have been programmed, the
VCR periodically checks, when it is in the timer recording
standby mode, the PDC status of programmed TV stations
with PDC for any change in the start time of these
programmes. However, while the VCR is actually recording
a programme, it can only check the PDC status of the
programme being recorded.
(5) If the actual broadcasting times of timer recordings
overlap (regardless of whether or not they are PDC-
controlled), the recording that starts first always has
priority, and the recording of the later programme starts
only after the first timer recording has finished.
(6) Some TV stations may send signals to your VCR which
will change the time or date etc. for a timer recording that
you have programmed with PDC. The signal automatically
updates the timer programme to record at the re-
scheduled time and date. When this happens, the PDC
status indicator changes to “ON>". Although it is not
possible to alter the timer programme once this has
happened, it is still possible to delete the programme
completely, if you wish to.
(7) If the name of a TV station has been changed by manual
channel setting (Manual Tuning), the programmed
recording may not be performed correctly even if you have
set the PDC mode to “ON” during programming.
At present, PDC transmission does not cover all areas and
TV stations in the UK, so please check with the broadcasters
in your area for details.
NICAM Broadcasting System
This VCR features the NICAM digital sound system, a 2-
channel sound broadcast system that provides either 2 high-
quality stereo sound tracks or 2 independent mono sound
tracks, M1 and M2.
NICAM programmes are always accompanied by standard
(mono) sound broadcasts, and during playback, you can
select the desired sound with the AUDIO button ®.
e The NICAM stereo sound can only be recorded on the
Hi-Fi audio tracks.
e |f, for some reason, you want to record a NICAM TV
programme intentionally in mono on the Hi-Fi audio tracks,
set “NICAM” to “OFF” for the programme position on which
the desired programme is broadcast, as described on page
42.
Important Note on the NICAM System
When this VCR is switched on, the tuner automatically
switches to a NICAM broadcast if NICAM is being transmitted.
During test transmissions, it is possible that the sound
received does not correspond to the picture being viewed.
In order to receive synchronised sound and picture, select
monaural sound with the AUDIO button E or setting “NICAM”
to “OFF”. This applies only until NICAM transmissions are
fully operational.
At present, the NICAM signal is transmitted on stereo
channels only, since the M1 and M2 formats are not yet
available.

Cautions
Be sure to read the cautions carefully before you operate this
VCR.
Avoid sudden changes in temperature
If the VCR is moved suddenly from a cold to a warm place,
condensation may form on the tape surface and inside the
VCR. If this happens, leave the VCR at room temperature for
at least 1 hour before operating it.
Avoid humidity and dust
Do not use the VCR in very humid or dusty places. This may
cause damage to its internal parts.
Do not cover the ventilation holes
The ventilation holes prevents excessive heat build-up inside
the VCR during extended periods of use. Do not block these
holes; especialiy avoid covering them with soft materials such
as paper or cloth.
Keep the VCR away from high temperatures
Keep the VCR away from extreme heat such as direct
sunlight, heating radiators, or closed automobiles.
Avoid magnets or magnetized objects
Never bring a magnet or magnetized object close to the VCR
because this could adversely affect the performance of the
VCR. When using the VCR together with other equipment,
Keep as much distance as possible between them to prevent
them from adversely affecting each other's performance.
No fingers or other objects inside
Touching internal parts of the VCR is dangerous, and may
seriously damage it. Do not attempt to disassemble the VCR.
There are no user serviceable parts inside.
Video head clogging
The video heads record the picture signals on the tape during
recording and read picture signals from the tape during
playback. They are, therefore, of critical importance for the
picture quality. If the VCR is used for a very long time, these
heads may become dirty and clogged with dust and fine
particles from the tape coating. In such a case, the signals
can no longer be recorded correctly, and the playback picture
will be distorted accordingly. This is the case, for example,
during the playback of a tape, the sound is reproduced
normally, but no picture is seen, or the picture is greatly
distorted. When such a symptoms occurs, have the recorder
checked by qualified service personnel.
Head cleaning by a service agent is not covered by
warranty.
Condensation may form in the following cases:
e |f the VCR is in a room that was very cold before the heater
has just been turned on.
e |f the VCR is in a room with steam or high humidity.
e |f the VCR is brought from cold surroundings into a well-
heated room.
® The VCR is suddenly brought from cool surroundings, such
as an air-conditioned room or car, to a place which is hot
and humid.
Note:
e In any of the above-mentioned conditions, do not operate
the VCR for at least 1 hour.
This VCR is not equipped with a dew sensor.
Keep water away
Tape Care
Keep the VCR away from flower vases, tubs, sinks, etc.
Caution: If water or some other liquid is spilled into the VCR,
serious damage could occur. If you spill any liquid into the
VCR, consult qualified service personnel.
Cleaning the VCR
Wipe the VCR with a clean, dry cloth. Never use any cleaning
fluid or other chemicals. Also do not use compressed air to
remove dust,
Stacking
Install the VCR in a horizontal position and do not place
anything heavy on it.
Some do's and доп? в on tape care.
DO:
1) Use a good quality branded tape, such as Panasonic.
2) Keep in the box supplied with your tape, or a video case,
when not in use.
3) Try to use all the tape on a cassette by making middle and
end sections. This will avoid many repeated recordings at
the beginning of the tape resulting in premature wear.
4) Take care to insert a tape correctly into the VCR to avoid
damage.
DO NOT:
1) Expose the tape to high humidity or temperature.
2) Expose to liquid.
3) Expose to dust particles by storing directly on a carpet for
example.
4) Use a damaged tape or attempt to repair.
5) Dismantle the cassette housing.
6) Attempt to lift the front cassette flap or touch the tape
surface.
