Making an audio or a video
You can make an audio or a video recording
from the built-in tuner, or from an audio or
video source connected to the receiver (such
as a CD player or TV).
Keep in mind you can't make a digital
recording from an analog source or vice-versa,
so make sure the components you are
recording to/from are hooked up in the same
way (see Connecting your equipment on
page 13 for more on connections).
If you want to record a video source, you also
need to use the same type of connection for the
source as for the recorder. For example, you
can't record a component hooked up to
composite video jacks with a recorder hooked
up to the component video outputs (see
page 19 for more on video connections).

Prepare the recorder.
Insert a blank tape, MD, video etc. into the
recording device and set the recording levels.
Refer to the instructions that came with the
recorder if you are unsure how to do this. Most
video recorders set the audio recording level
automatically—check the component's
instruction manual if you're unsure.
Start recording, then start playback of the
