Instant Timer Recording (ITR)

Your DVD+VCR allows you to make recordings using a variety of simple methods:

Instant Timer Recording (ITR)

start recording immediately for a set period of time or until the video cassette runs out.

Your DVD+VCR incorporates Long Play (LP) which enables you to record up to twice the amount of time on a video cassette. For example an E-180 will record up to 180 minutes using Standard Play (SP); using LP you will be able to record up to 360 minutes. Please note there will be a slight loss in picture and sound quality when using LP.

1. Make sure that you have correctly connected your

DVD+VCR as described earlier in this book.

Press

POWER

to turn on your DVD+VCR.

2. Insert a video cassette with protection tab into your

DVD+VCR.

The video cassette should have the window side facing up and the arrow facing away from you.

3. Press

3 or

4 to select the

programme number

you wish to record.

You may also directly select programme number using the

numbered buttons

on the remote control.

4. If you wish to record directly from the SCART or

RCA jacks, repeatedly press AV until the socket you wish to record from is displayed.

AV 1

for recording from EURO AV1 SCART jacks on the rear of your unit.

AV 2

for recording from EURO AV2 DECODER jacks on the rear of your unit.

AV 3

for recording from VIDEO IN and AUDIO IN

(Left & Right) jacks on the front of your unit.

5. Press LP if you wish to record in Long Play or

Standard Play.

SP will produce improved picture and sound quality, however LP will provide twice as much recording time as SP.

6. Press

REC/ITR

on the remote to start recording.

Press

REC/ITR

on the remote several times.

Each successive press will increase the record time by 30 minutes until you reach a maximum of 9 hours.

7. Press

PAUSE/STEP

to avoid recording unwanted scenes.

Press

PAUSE/STEP

to continue recording.

Tapes can be paused for up to 5 minutes; RECP will be displayed when a tape is paused. After 5 minutes your DVD+VCR will stop recording to prevent damaging the tape or your DVD+VCR.

8. Press

STOP

to end recording.

Press

EJECT

.

Notes:

If you do not wish to record on a tape (this can happen quite easily by accident!) remove the protection tab on the back edge of the video cassette.

It is possible to record on a video cassette with the record protection tab removed by covering the hole with self adhesive tape.

Remember you can record one programme while watching another by starting your instant recording, press

Notes:

Video Programme System (VPS)

The Video Programme System (VPS) ensures that the TV programmes that you have programmed for timer recording will be recorded exactly from their beginning to end, even if the actual broadcasting time differs from the scheduled time due to delayed start, or if the programme is extended beyond its scheduled time. Also, if a programme is interrupted, for example, if a news flash is inserted, the recording will also be interrupted automatically and resumed when the programme continues.

The VPS signal is broadcast by the TV station and this controls the timer in the video recorder.

VPS should be set ON for all timer recordings from

TV stations broadcasting these signals. It should be set OFF for all timer recordings from TV stations that are not broadcasting these signals.

*** The similar system PDC, which is used in the time being in the Netherlands, can also be used with your new video recorder.
