COMPU LINK Remote Control System
The COMPU LINK remote control system allows you to operate JVC’s audio components through the remote sensor on the receiver.
To use this remote control system, you need to connect JVC’s audio components through the COMPU LINK (SYNCHRO) jacks using the cables with monaural mini-plugs (not supplied, see below) in addition to the connections using cables with RCA pin plugs (see page 6).
Make sure that the AC power cords of these components are unplugged before connection. Plug the AC power cords only after all connections are complete.
Automatic Source Selection
When you press the play (3) button on a connected component or on its own remote control, the receiver automatically turns on and changes the source to the component. On the other hand, if you select a new source on the receiver or on the remote control, the selected component begins playing immediately. In both cases, the previously selected source continues playing without sound for a few seconds.
Cassette deck or CD recorder
Automatic Power On/Off (standby)—only possible with the COMPU LINK-3 and COMPU LINK-4
The connected components turn on and off (standby) along with the receiver. When you turn on the receiver, one of the connected components will turn on automatically, depending on which component has been previously selected. When you turn off the receiver, the connected components will turn off (standby).
COMPU LINK-4 (SYNCHRO)
Synchronized recording means the cassette deck starts recording as soon as a CD begins playing.
There are four versions of COMPU LINK remote control system. This receiver is equipped with the fourth version—COMPU LINK-4. This version is added systematic operations with the CD recorder to the previous version—COMPU LINK-3.
If your audio component has two COMPU LINK jacks, you can use either one. If it has only one COMPU LINK jack, connect it so that it is the last item in the series of components.
To operate the cassette deck or CD recorder using the COMPU LINK remote control system, set the source name correctly if required. (See page 12.)
Refer also to the manuals supplied with your audio components.
This remote control system allows you to use four functions listed below.
Remote Control through the Remote Sensor on the Receiver
You can control the connected audio components through the remote sensor on the receiver using this remote control. Aim the remote control directly at the remote sensor on the receiver. For details, see pages 29 and 30.
To use synchronized recording, follow these steps:
1 Put a tape in the cassette deck, and a disc in the CD player.
2 Press the record (¶) button and the pause (8)
button on the cassette deck at the same time. This puts the cassette deck into recording pause. If you do not press the record (¶) button and pause (8) button at the same time, the synchronized recording feature will not operate.
3 Press the play (3) button on the CD player. The source changes on the receiver, and as soon as play starts, the cassette deck starts recording. When the play ends, the cassette deck enters recording pause, and stops about 4 seconds later.
During synchronized recording, the selected source cannot be changed.
If the power of any component is shut off during synchronized recording, the COMPU LINK remote control system may not operate properly. In this case, you must start again from the beginning.
