The proper function of the satellite control can only be guaranteed for the listed combinations of Set Top Boxes and providers in the respective countries. Other combinations could influence the switching of the programme numbers or may not function properly. Modifications of the technical specifications of the Set Top Boxes can cause the satellite control to malfunction.
Programming a recording (TIMER)
Use programming a recording (TIMER) to automatically start and stop a recording at a later date. The video recorder will switch to the right programme number and begin recording at the correct time. With this video recorder, you can pre-programme up to six recordings within a period of one month. To make a programmed recording, your video recorder needs to know: * the date you want to make the recording * the programme number of the TV channel * the start and stop time of the recording This information is saved in a 'TIMER block'.
What is 'VPS/PDC'? 'VPS' (Video Programming System)/ 'PDC'(Programme Delivery Control) are used to control the start and duration of TV channel recordings. If a TV programme starts earlier or ends later, the video recorder will then turn on and off and the correct time. What do I need to know about 'VPS/PDC'? You must enter the start time exactly to the minute. If you want to programme a time that is different from the VPS or PDC time, you must switch off VPS or PDC. Only one TV program of a TV channel can be controlled using 'VPS/PDC' at a time. If you want to record two or more TV programmes on a TV channel using 'VPS/PDC', you will need to programme these as two separate recordings.
Programming a recording (with 'VIDEO Plus+ Deluxe')

In some reception locations it is possible that a TV channel will be sent on the same or similar frequency as the video recorder. Result: As soon as the video recorder is switched on, the reception quality for this or several other TV channels will decreased. The following steps will show you how to change the pre-set 'transmission' (modulator) frequency on the video recorder.
What is a modulator? This electronic component in the video recorder allows the device to transmit audio and video signals via the aerial cable. These signals can be received TV set just like TV channels. What is an modulator frequency? This frequency or channel indicates the frequency or channel on which the audio or video signal is transmitted.
Switch on the TV set. Select the programme number used for video recorder playback (see TV operating instructions). Press STOP/EJECT ? to eject any cassette that might be in the device.
Hold the STOP h button on the remote control. In addition press the STOP/EJECT ? button on the video recorder until the pre-set modulator frequency e.g. 'M583' (583MHz or UHF channel 35) appears in the display. The video recorder will now transmit a test image on UHF channel 35/Frequency 583MHz.
OPTIMIZE MODULATOR OPTIMIZE FREQUENCY MODULATOR 583 ON p
Select line 'OPTIMIZE FREQUENCY' using ;qP or P r=. Enter the new modulator frequency with the number buttons 0-9.
Can the modulator frequency be changed automatically? Pressing P starts the automatic channel search. When the video recorder finds a 'free' channel (not used be a TV channel), the frequency of this channel will be shown in the display.
Tune in the TV set to the new modulator frequency (channel 21 - 69) shown in the video recorder display. Confirm with OK. 'STORED' will appear briefly on the screen.
Optimising the modulator is now complete.
Switching the modulator on / off
If you cannot clear picture or sound interference despite optimisation, you can switch off the built-in modulator. Warning: this is only possible if you have connected the video recorder to the TV set with a scart cable. Without a scart cable you will not receive a picture from the video recorder on the TV set when the modulator is switched off. 1
