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

Ensuring that a TV Programme Will Be
Recorded until Its End
(Auto SP/LP Change Function)
If, at the start of a timer recording, the VCR determines that
the remaining tape time is insufficient to record the whole
programme, the Auto SP/LP Change function automatically
selects LP mode to ensure that the whole programme will be
recorded. However, if the remaining tape time is still not
sufficient even in the LP mode, the programme cannot be
recorded to its end.
e This function cannot change the recording speed to the
EP mode.
® If you programme a daily or weekly timer recording,
recording will be performed in the LP mode from the start
regardless of the remaining tape time.
* In case of a timer recording programmed with the PDC
function, if the TV programme continues past the
programmed ending time, the VCR automatically switches
over to the LP mode at that moment. However, in some
cases it may not be possible to record the programme until
its end.
e Use a video cassette on which a few minutes more than the
total length of programmed timer recordings remain,
otherwise the programmed timer recordings may be
performed in the LP mode.
e Be careful that the broadcast times of the TV programmes
set for timer recording do not overlap, otherwise the
programmed timer recordings may be performed in the LP
mode,
e |f the recording speed changes from SP to LP during a
timer recording, some brief picture distortion occurs at that
point.
Condition for correct operation of the Auto SP/LP Change
function:
e The tape length of the inserted cassette must be set
correctly. (See page 49.)
To Activate the Auto SP/LP Change Function:
In operation step 4 (see page 24) when programming with the
Video Plus+ Code, or in operation step 6 (see page 25) when
programming a timer recording with the On Screen Display,
press the SP/LP button @ to select “A”.

Notes for Programming a Timer Recording of a Satellite
Programme:
e When programming a timer recording of a satellite
programme, it is not possible to activate the PDC function.
¢ On some satellite receivers, the power may be turned off for
a few seconds before a timer recording is actually started
and recording may not be performed for those first few
seconds. To ensure recording from the beginning of the
programme, we recommend that you set the recording start
time about a minute earlier than that listed in the
newspaper/magazine.
e After the timer recording has finished, some satellite
receivers switch off automatically, but the recording has
been performed as programmed.
e |f a power failure occurs during the timer recording of a
satellite programme, the timer recording may not resume
when the power is restored.
e Timer recording of pay-per-view satellite programmes is not
possible.
e Timer recording of satellite programmes from a satellite
receiver or satellite receiver channel for which the PIN code
has been entered is not possible.
e Timer recording of satellite programmes for which the
parental control function has been activated is not possible.

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 €9.
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 46.)
* 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.
“Incase of aTV 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 titles
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.
® No Tape Library data is recorded during insert editing.
* 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.
e 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 49.)
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.
e 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 YCR 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.
ad E E
* When the VCR's entire memory area has been used up by the Tape Library data, or when cassette numbers 1 through 999
have all 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.)
