CONNECTING YOUR TV-VIDEO COMBI
Important for the United Kingdom
Connecting the cables
This apparatus is fitted with an approved moulded 13 Amp
plug. To change a fuse in this type of plug proceed as follows:
a Remove fuse cover and fuse.
b Fix new fuse which should be a BS1362 5A, A.S.T.A. or
BSI approved type.
c Refit the fuse cover.
If the fitted plug is not suitable for your socket outlets, it should
be cut off and an appropriate plug fitted in its place.
If the mains plug contains a fuse, this should have a value of
5A. If a plug without a fuse is used, the fuse at the distribution
board should not be greater than 5A.
D Note: * The severed plug must be destroyed to avoid a
possible shock hazard should it be inserted into a 13A
socket elsewhere.
How to connect a plug:
The wires in the mains lead are coloured in accordance with
the following code:
BLUE - ’NEUTRAL’ (’N’)
BROWN - ’LIVE’ (’L’)
a Insert the aerial plug into the 2 socket.
b Insert the plug of the mains cable into the wall socket.
c If the little red light at the front of the set is not alight,
please switch on the set. The power switch

PROGRAMMED RECORDING (TIMER)
Use programmed recording to automatically start and stop a
recording at a later date.
To make a programmed recording, your TV-VIDEO Combi
needs to know:
* the date you want to make the recording;
* the programme number for the TV channel you want to
record;
* the start and stop time of the recording;
* whether you want to use VPS or PDC;
* the recording speed (SP/LP).
The TV-VIDEO Combi stores all the information in a TIMER
block. You can programme up to 6 TIMER blocks a month in
advance.
c Enter the entire PlusCode-programming number (up to 9
digits) printed in your TV guide next to the start time of a
TV programme.
For example, 5-234-89 or 5 234 89
Enter 523489 for the PlusCode-programming number.
If you make a mistake, you can clear your instructions

if your TV guide gives a VPS or PDC time which is different to
the programme’s start time (for example, 20.15 and VPS 20.14),
you must enter ’20.14’ as the start time.
