This function lets you programme the VCR for unattended automatic recording of desired TV programmes when you are not at
home or sleeping.
You can programme timer recordings in two different ways:
(1) By entering the Video Plus+ PlusCode published alongside the TV programme listings in newspapers and magazines
(explained below) or ;
(2) By entering the necessary information with the remote control while viewing the On Screen Display (OSD) on the TV screen
(see page 36).
This VCR lets you programme up to 8 TV programmes (including weekly and daily programmes) for unattended recording up
to one month in advance.
Example:
Programming a timer recording of a TV programme with the Video Plus+ PlusCode
920126
(1) Programming with the Video Plus+ Function
The Video Plus+ PlusCodes (numbers) assigned to each TV programme and published
alongside the TV programme listings in newspapers and magazines make it extremely
easy to set the VCR for timer recording.
The duration of a timer recording programmed with Video Plus+ PlusCode may be
slightly longer than the actual duration of the TV programme.

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.
® Timer recording of pay-per-view satellite programmes is not possible.

Manual Tuning
A EE
This VCR has 99 programme positions that can be preset to receive TV stations.
Usually, if you switch the VCR on for the first time after making the necessary connections, the VCR will start the Download or
Auto Setup function automatically so that all available TV stations in the area can be received.
However, if Auto Setup is not successful due to extraordinary transmission circumstances, or if you want to change the name of
a TV station or change a TV station from its regular programme position to one of your preference, you can set it up manually.
This is called Manual Tuning.
If download is performed after you have used manual tuning to change the settings then the changes that you made may be
lost. In this case make the changes again using manual tuning. However for Direct TV Record to work correctly (Q Link) then
the programme settings of the TV and VCR must be the same. To ensure this, make the desired programme setting changes to
the TV first and then perform download to the VCR. Refer to the TV operating instructions for further details.
Manual Tuning can be used for the following:
@ To change the order in which the TV stations are assigned to the programme positions
@ To enter or change the name of a TV station
@ To enter newly available TV stations
@ To select the type of sound to be heard/recorded

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 it is 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+ PlusCode 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+ PlusCode 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.
(с) 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 PDC 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.
One Touch Recording (OTR)
You can use this function to set the duration of a recording.
When the selected recording duration has elapsed, the VCR
automatically stops recording and switches off.
This function is convenient when you have to go out or want
to go to bed before the recording ends.

Tracking Adjustment
As this VCR is equipped with automatic digital tracking
adjustment function which maintains optimum picture quality,
manual adjustment is normally not necessary.
However, when playing back a video cassette which was
recorded on a different VCR, the playback picture may
contain noise bars. You can then use the manual tracking
adjustment function to eliminate the noise.
V-Lock Adjustment
V stands for Vertical. With this function, you can minimise
vertical jitter during still playback.
Selecting the Desired Playback Sound
Track
You can select the desired playback sound tracks with the
AUDIO button on the remote control. Repeatedly pressing the
AUDIO button changes the audio output mode in the following
order:
Stereo —>| ей — Right
