Notes: A clear picture will not be obtained by the DVD/VCR unless the antenna signal is good. Connect the antenna to the
DVD/VCR properly.
For better quality recording, an indoor antenna or a telescopic antenna is not recommended. The use of an outdoor
type antenna is required.
If you are not sure about the connection, please refer to qualified service personnel.
The DVD/VCR must be connected “between” the antenna and the TV. First, disconnect the antenna from the TV and
connect it to the DVD/VCR. Then connect the DVD/VCR to the TV. Below are 3 common methods of connecting an
antenna system to a DVD/VCR. Find the type of antenna system you are using and follow the connection diagram.
If both VHF and UHF antennas have 300 ohm twin lead (flat) wires, use a combiner having two 300 ohm inputs and
one 75 ohm output.

Many cable companies offer services permitting reception of extra channels including pay or subscription channels. This
DVD/VCR has an extended tuning range and can be tuned to most cable channels without using a cable company
supplied converter box, except for those premium channels which are intentionally scrambled. If you subscribe to a
premium channel which is scrambled, you must have a descrambler box for proper reception.
Allows: *Recording of nonscrambled channels.
*Use of the programmable timer.
*Recording of one channel while watching another.
Allows: *Recording of channels through the converter box
(scrambled and unscrambled).
*Using the programmable timer to record only the
channel selected at the converter box.
Prevents: *Recording one channel while watching another.
*Using the DVD/VCR tuner to select channels.

About HDMI
HDMI (High Definition Multimedia Interface) supports both video
and audio on a single digital connection for use with DVD players,
DTV, set-top boxes, and other AV devices. HDMI was developed
to provide the technologies of High Bandwidth Digital Content
Protection (HDCP) as well as Digital Visual Interface (DVI) in one
specification. HDCP is used to protect digital content transmitted
and received by DVI-compliant or HDMI-compliant displays.
HDMI has the capability to support standard, enhanced, or high-
definition video plus standard to multi-channel surround-sound
audio. HDMI features include uncompressed digital video, a
bandwidth of up to 2.2 gigabytes per second (with HDTV signals),
one connector (instead of several cables and connectors), and
communication between the AV source and AV devices such as
DTVs.

Power-supply cords should be routed so that they are not likely to be walked on or pinched by items placed upon
or against them, paying particular attention to cords at plugs, convenience receptacles, and the point where they
exit from the appliance.
LIGHTNING
To protect your unit from a lightning storm, or when it is left unattended and unused for long periods of time,
unplug it from the wall outlet and disconnect the antenna or cable system. This will prevent damage to the unit
due to lightning and power line surges.
POWER LINES
An outside antenna system should not be located in the vicinity of overhead power lines or other electric light or
power circuits, or where it can fall into such power lines or circuits. When installing an outside antenna system,
extreme care should be taken to keep from touching such power lines or circuits, as contact with them might be
fatal.
OVERLOADING
Do not overload wall outlets and extension cords, as this can result in a risk of fire or electric shock.
OBJECT AND LIQUID ENTRY
Do not push objects through any openings in this unit, as they may touch dangerous voltage points or short out
parts that could result in fire or electric shock. Never spill or spray any type of liquid into the unit.

IMPORTANT SAFEGUARDS (CONTINUED)
OUTDOOR ANTENNA GROUNDING
If an outside antenna or cable system is connected to the unit, be sure the antenna or cable system is grounded
so as to provide some protection against voltage surges and built-up static charges. Section 810 of the National
Electrical Code, ANSI/NFPA 70, provides information with respect to proper grounding of the mast and supporting
structure, grounding of the lead-in wire to an antenna discharge unit, size of grounding conductors, location of
antenna discharge unit, connection to grounding electrodes, and requirements for the grounding electrode.
SERVICING
Do not attempt to service this unit yourself as opening or removing covers may expose you to dangerous voltage
or other hazards. Refer all servicing to qualified service personnel.
DAMAGE REQUIRING SERVICE
Unplug this unit from the wall outlet and refer servicing to qualified service personnel under the following
conditions:
REPLACEMENT PARTS
When replacement parts are required, be sure the service technician uses replacement parts specified by the
manufacturer or those that have the same characteristics as the original parts.
Unauthorized substitutions may result in fire, electric shock or other hazards.
SAFETY CHECK
Upon completion of any service or repairs to this unit, ask the service technician to perform safety checks to
determine that the unit is in proper operating condition.
WALL OR CEILING MOUNTING
The product should be mounted to a wall or ceiling only as recommended by the manufacturer.
HEAT
The product should be situated away from heat sources such as radiators, heat registers, stoves, or other
products (including amplifiers) that produce heat.
DISC TRAY
Keep your fingers well clear of the disc tray as it is closing. It may cause serious personal injury.
CONNECTING
When you connect the product to other equipment, turn off the power and unplug all of the equipment from the
wall outlet. Failure to do so may cause an electric shock and serious personal injury. Read the owner's manual of
the other equipment carefully and follow the instructions when making any connections.
SOUND VOLUME
Reduce the volume to the minimum level before you turn on the product. Otherwise, sudden high volume sound
may cause hearing or speaker damage.
SOUND DISTORTION
Do not allow the product output distorted sound for a longtime. It may cause speaker overheating and fire.
