remaining tape time is still not sufficient in this case, the
programme cannot be recorded to the end.
The tape length must be set correctly. (See page 11.)
Some tapes may not work correctly.
If the recording speed changes from SP to LP during a timer

• Checking cannot be performed properly when signals are

are no signals such as at unrecorded portions of the tape. In
this case, press [NAVI] (4) at a portion of the tape where a
programme has been recorded of this VCR. This will allow
signal checking to be performed more reliably. When a
signal is still not found, [CAN NOT FIND JET NAVIGATOR

beginning of the programme.
• Up to 20 cassettes and 50 programmes can be registered.
• If 50 recorded programme data are already stored in
memory and you attempt to store timer recording data for
another programme, the message [REMAINING

appears. If you attempt to make a new recording, this same
message also appears after you insert the cassette and the
Jet Navigator data is checked. As each timer recording or
manual recording is finished, the programme data is deleted,
starting from the oldest data.
• When a new programme is attempted to be recorded after
programmes equivalent to 20 cassettes are already stored in
memory, [REMAINING CASSETTE 0. FOR JET

To Find the Beginning of Each Recording
(VHS Index Search System)
When Recording Over the Same Location on a Tape:
• The originally recorded programme is deleted from the list.
• Programme contents starting near the start and end of the
newly recorded programme (within 10 minutes before the
start and after the end of the newly recorded programme) is
also erased.
(Although old programme contents are also similarly erased
in the case of ordinary recording, the newly recorded
programme is not registered in the list.)
This VCR automatically records special index signals on the
tape every time a recording is started. The Index search
function makes use of these index signals to let you find the
beginning of a desired programme quickly and easily.
Index signals are automatically recorded in the following
cases:
• When you start a recording by pressing [REC] (27) or [REC/
OTR] (41).
• When a timer recording starts.
• When you press [REC] (27) on the remote control during
recording.

To Demonstrate the Jet Navigator Function
Keep [NAVI] (4) pressed for more than 5 seconds without
inserting a cassette tape.
• The VCR fast-forwards or rewinds the tape and searches
for the specified index signal (the beginning of the desired
recorded programme).
When it is found, playback starts automatically.
To Check the Recorded Programming Data
(Time Stamp Function)
When playback starts after searching
with Jet Navigator function or index
search function, recorded
programming data (called Time
Stamp) appears on the TV screen for
approx. 5 seconds.
CH 2
10/29. SA
To Cancel the Index Search or to Stop Playback:
Press [Stop] (9).
ON 20:02
Notes:
• Searching in either direction is possible up to the 20th index
signal.
• If you press either of [INDEX] (30) too many times, simply
press the other [INDEX] (30) (indicating the opposite
direction) to correct it. In this way, you can reduce the
displayed figure down to 1.
• The figure on the VCR display decreases by 1 every time an
index signal is located.
Preparation
• Display the VCR picture on the TV.
Note:
• Time Stamp does not appear if the beginning of the Jet
Navigator data is not recorded 10 minutes before and after
the current tape position even when index signals are
recorded.
