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.

control to check that the satellite programmes can be selected correctly and
timer recordings of satellite broadcast can be performed correctly.
e With some satellite receivers, correct control from the VCR may not be possible.
e 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.
e The range of satellite channels available for selection is 1 through 99.
e 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,
e 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.
e |f the display on the satellite receiver does not indicate the channels, refer to its
operating instructions and follow the procedure for displaying the channels.

Manual Tuning
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 Downtoad 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:
(1) 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
@ Making changes to the programme list (stored on the programme positions of the VCR)

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 PDG
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 contro! 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.
(6) When a timer recording is incomplete due to
insufficient tape or cancellation by the user.
(c) i the TV station transmits a PDC signal to suspend ог
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 TY 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 oft.
This function is convenient when you have to go out or want
to go to bed before the recording ends.

Cautions
DA
Please read these cautions before you operate this VCR.
Avoid Sudden Changes in Temperature
If the VCR is suddenly moved from a cold place to a warm
place, condensation may form on the tape and inside the
VCR. If this happened, leave the VCR to at room temperature.
Humidity and Dust
Avoid places where there is high humidity or much dust,
which may cause damage to internal parts.
Do Not Obstruct the Ventilation Holes
Video Head Clogging
The video heads record picture signals on the tape during
recording and read picture signals from the tape during
playback and they are, therefore, of critical importance for the
picture quality. If the VCR is used over long periods of time,
these heads may become dirty and clogged. 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 coverd by
The ventilation holes prevent abnormal increase in
temperature. Do not block or cover these holes. Especially
avoid covering the holes with soft materials such as cloth or
paper.
Keep away from High Temperature
Keep the VCR away from extreme direct heat such as direct
sunlight, heating radiators, or closed automobiles.
Avoid Magnets or Magnetized objects
Never bring a magnet or magnetized object near the VCR
because it will adversely affect the performance of the VCR.
Keep the VCR away from other equipment as much as
possible when using it, to avoid any adverse effect on
performance for both the VCR and the equipment.
No Fingers or Other Objects Inside
Touching internal parts of this VCR is dangerous, and may
cause serious damage to the VCR. Do not attempt to
disassemble the VCR. There are no user serviceable parts
inside.
Keep Water away
Keep the VCR away from flower vases, tubs, sinks, etc.
CAUTION: if liquids are 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 cleaning
fluid, or other chemicals. And do not use compressed air to
remove dust,
Stacking
Place the VCR in a horizontal position, and do not place
anything heavy on it.
warranty.
Condensation may form in the VCR if:
e The VCR is in a room where the heater has just been
turned on.
e The VCR is in a room with steam or high humidity.
e The VCR is brought from cold surroundings into a wel!-
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:
Do not operate the VCR for at least 1 hour if any of the above
conditions occur.
This VCR does not incorporate a condensation sensor.
Tape Care
Some do's and dont’s 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.
