Your video recorder (VCR) is designed so that almost all of its features can be controlled from the
REMOTE CONTROL HANDSET. Some features can also be controlled from the FRONT PANEL
of the video recorder. The maximum operating distance that you may control your video recorder
is about 7.5 metres (25 feet). It must also be within an angle of 30 degrees either side of the
REMOTE SENSOR on the front of your video recorder.

Your TV receives signals from the video recorder (VCR) like another TV station.
You have to select a channel number on your TV and tune it in so that you may watch
video tapes.
If you have used SCART or AUDIO and VIDEO cables then your TV should already
have a dedicated video channel built into it, usually called AV.
