Question about JVC HR-XVC30U DVD Player/VCR
The remote control is key to timer recording. Notice the selections are color-coded: grey-black for VCR, gold for DVD. Then look at the second and third rows of buttons. Each button has multiple functions depending on if the VCR or DVD button has been pressed. To record from TV signal to VHS, press the VCR very top button. (The controller will also control your TV if set up properly, so be sure the small switch at the top-left of the controller is set to the VCR/DVD side. I use a separate controller for my TV so I never change this.) Now press the "PROG." button located beside the "3" button. (Your television must be on and set to "see" the VCR not the normal TV signal.) Now look at the second row of buttons, the ones with the "+" signs. The grey words below them indicate what they'll do when pressed (the same buttons do what the gold words say when the DVD is selected.) So to set the start time, press the first "+" button with the word "START" below it. That sets the start time of the show you want to record. It'll go in 30-minute intervals if you hold it down, otherwise it's a minute-at-a-press. If you go too far, you can back up with the third row's "-" button. When you have the start time set, move on to the next button labeled "STOP" and similarly set the end-time of the program. Continue with the third "+" button to set the date you want to record. Lastly, set the channel by pressing the fourth "+" button labeled "CH." It's a bit tedious if you have a high channel number to get to. When you have all these set properly, it's important to then press the "TIMER" button (located next to the keypad number 6). That turns the VCR off but "watching" for the settings you've just made, and it'll wake up and do the recording at the proper moment. You can confirm you've got it waiting by looking at the display on the VCR; to the left of the channel number a red "clock" image should be lit. That says it's waiting. You can program several shows to record by repeating these steps, or you can do them all sequentially by setting the first one, then pressing the "PROG" button again (rather than the "TIMER" button) and setting up the next recording. When you're done, THEN press the "TIMER" button and the VCR will go to sleep until it's assigned wake-up time.
