Connections and preparations for a TV with a S-Video socket
This VCR uses the S-VHS format that makes it possible to obtain high
resolution and high picture quality by using the high-performance S-VHS
video cassette tapes.
The conventional video sockets of VCRs output (input) a combination of
the luminance signal (Y) and colour signal (C) which are recorded on
the video tape. The new S (Separate)-Video Socket allows separate
transmission of signals in order to obtain clearer pictures.
The connection with the S-Video Cable can also be used for playing
back a tape that was recorded in the conventional VHS system. The [S]
in the [S-Video Socket] stands for [SEPARATED Y/C] not for [S-VHS].

We recommend that you use cassettes other than type E300.
If you want to record and playback with highest possible picture quality or store the
cassettes for a long time, we recommend that you use S-VHS cassettes and record
in the S-VHS format.
If you record in the S-VHS ET format, the picture quality may not be very good with
certain types of cassettes. To avoid negative surprises, we recommend that you
make a trial recording and confirm that the quality of the recorded picture is
satisfactory. To ensure optimum picture quality, we recommend the use of high-quality
type cassettes.
We recommend entering [S-VHS ET] into the cassette label on any cassette that you
have recorded using the S-VHS ET function so that you will be able to distinguish

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
