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.
