With the SHOWVIEW system, timer programming is greatly simplified because each TV programme has a corresponding code number which your recorder is able to recognize.
SHOWVIEW Timer Programming
Before performing the SHOWVIEW Timer Programming:
â Make sure that the recorderâs built-in clock is set properly. â Insert a cassette with the safety tab in place. The recorder will come on automatically. â Turn on the TV and select the video channel (or AV mode).
A Access the SHOWVIEW screen.
B Enter the SHOWVIEW number.
Press the number keys to enter the SHOWVIEW number of a programme you wish to record.
â If you make a mistake, press & and input the correct number.
C Access the SHOWVIEW Program screen.
Press OK, then the SHOWVIEW Program screen appears (if youâre just starting out, âP1â appears).
Make sure the channel position number you wish to record is displayed; if not, see âSHOWVIEW System Setupâ on page 49
and set the Guide Program number correctly. â If the number you entered is invalid, âERRORâ appears on the TV screen. Press & and input a valid SHOWVIEW number. â If the âGUIDE PROG SETâ screen appears, see âATTENTIONâ on page 23.
