Hi!

Please follow the instructions given below... =)

Setting the clock

The clock is set to the correct time automatically, but it

daylight saving time and time zone.

3 Press  or  to select the desired submenu and

The screen for the selected submenu will appear.



CLOCK (manually)
You can manually set the date, year and present time
with the remote control.
Ex.: Setting the clock to “10:20AM” October, 30th, 2004.
1 Select “CLOCK” and press ENTER.
01/01/04 12:00AM
2 Select the desired items using  or  (month,

ENTER.
3 Press  or  to set the value of the selected
item.
• For the minutes, press  or  once to set the time
minute by minute, or hold down either of buttons
for several seconds to set the time in 10-minute
intervals.
10/30/04 10:200AM
4 Repeat steps 2 and 3 to set the date, year and
present time, and press ENTER. The SETUP MENU
will close.
This completes clock time setting.
AUTO CLOCK
You can automatically set the clock by turning “ON” the
AUTO CLOCK function.
When you want to set the auto clock function to “OFF”,
select “AUTO CLOCK”, press ENTER and select “OFF”
from the list.

Auto clock setting
Preparation:
You must connect the antenna or cable before connecting
the AC cord to the power source.
Wait 30 minutes with the power turned off, after the
antenna or cable is connected, for the auto clock
feature to activate.
After the clock is set automatically, you may have to set
the time zone and daylight saving time. (See page 26.)
Press STANDBY/ON to turn on the DVD/VCR after the
auto clock operation completed.
• When shipped from the factory, the “AUTO CLOCK”
option is set to “ON” position.
• If you turn the DVD/VCR on during auto clock
setting, the clock is not set.
• After a power failure or disconnection of the power
plug, the clock setting will be lost. In this case, wait
30 minutes before turning the DVD/VCR on.
• With cable box connection, if the auto clock setting
is unsuccessful, select the PBS channel carrying
the XDS information, then turn the DVD/VCR off.
After 30 minutes, turn the DVD/VCR on.
• If the clock is not set automatically, set the clock
manually.


STANDARD TIME (Time zone)
In the rare event that you live within the broadcast range
of two stations in two different time zones, the DVD/VCR
may recognize the wrong station for the auto clock set.
To correct the situation:
Select “STANDARD TIME” and select the time zone from
the list below.
Selectable time zones and correction times
ATLANTIC: GMT – 4 hours
(GMT: Greenwich Mean Time)
EASTERN: GMT – 5 hours
CENTRAL: GMT – 6 hours
MOUNTAIN: GMT – 7 hours
PACIFIC: GMT – 8 hours
ALASKA: GMT – 9 hours
HAWAII: GMT – 10 hours
AUTOMATIC: AUTO SET
Note
• When shipped from the factory, the “TIME ZONE” is
set to “AUTOMATIC”.
• After making the auto clock setting, in some cases
the clock may display another time zone. You can
correct the clock by selecting your time zone
setting above.
• When the clock is not set or you set the clock
manually, the time zone setting is not available.
DAYLIGHT SAVING TIME
You can set the clock to daylight saving time automatically
or manually.
To select daylight saving time, select “DAYLIGHT
SAVING TIME” and select “ON”, while to cancel the
daylight saving time, select “OFF”.
ON: For manual setting (forward 1 hour)
OFF: For manual setting (back 1 hour)
AUTOMATIC: For automatic setting (read XDS in
the signal)
Note
• When you want to set daylight saving time, on the
first Sunday in April you set it to “ON”, and on the
last Sunday in October you set it to “OFF”.
• When shipped from the factory, the “DAYLIGHT
SAVING TIME” option is set to “AUTOMATIC”.
• When the clock is not set, the daylight saving time
setting is not available.
• When there is no daylight saving time in your area,
always select “OFF”.

What is the rca universal remote control code for dvr-rt500


If your RCA remote is universal, you can use its code search feature to find a code that will control some or all functions of your Pioneer DVD/VCR player. If searching is unsuccessful, your RCA remote may not have a suitable code in its library.

Vcr seems to have quit, will not eject etc


If you can see that your VCR has power (lights up) when you turn it on, but it still won't eject tape, then unplug for a and hour or two. When you turn it on again, it should reset itself and start up. Then you should be able to eject cassette.
If there is no power at all, or you think the taped is jammed and you want to save the tape, remove the top panel of the unplugged VCR and gently remove the tape. Good luck!

L.S.My Pioneer DVR-550H does not record when programmed with the timer. After setting a timerprogram one can see the small red clock in the display but that disapears after some time and so the DVR does...


Make sure you have the right date and time set. You cannot set a timer program until you have the correct time and date set. Let me know if that helps.

I cannot play burned dvd's from this system in other dvd players becahse I cannot finalize the dvd. How do I finalize?


The recording may have used all the media on the disk because you let it run until it was full.
Now, there is no room to finalize the disk.

Play this back on the machine where it was recorded while recording it to another DVD recorder..
This time, BE THERE to stop the recording.
Set the recorder to a speed that leaves at least 10 minutes extra space for finalization.
