Connections and Setup
This chapter is dedicated to connecting your DVD/VCR player. Before you start playing discs, you might want to get familiar with the remote control — Chapter 2 has details.
If you want to skip straight to playing discs, go to Chapter 3 (page 17). It explains playback features of DVDs, Audio CDs, Video CDs, discs that contain MP3 files.
The VCR features are described in Chapter 4, including how to record and set up the VCR (page 29). The DVD/VCR player’s menu system is outlined in Chapter 5 (page 38), and Chapter 6 contains troubleshooting assistance, your Limited Warranty, and additional information about your DVD/VCR player.
What to Expect DVD and VCR Modes
As you familiarize yourself with this product, keep in mind that you need to tell the remote which part of the unit you want to operate — the DVD part of the unit or the VCR part. To operate the DVD part of the DVD/VCR, press the DVD button on the remote. To operate the VCR part, press the VCR button. (You can also change modes on the front of the unit by pressing the DVD/VCR button.)
Since this product combines a DVD player with a VCR, the menu systems are separate. The settings in one menu system don’t affect the other. For example, you have to set the menu language for the VCR menu and then set the language for the DVD menu.
In this user’s guide, the product is generally referred to as a DVD/VCR. You might see features referenced separately as DVD or VCR features, or you might see them combined, depending on the feature.
