You can use the REC OUT/ZONE 2 or REC OUT control 
to record one source while watching and/or listening to 
another source.
Recording adjustments and other operations are 
performed from the recording components. Refer to the 
operation instructions for those components.
1
Turn on the power of this unit and all 
connected components.
2
Select the source component you want to 
record from by using REC OUT/ZONE 2 or 
REC OUT.
• To record the current input source that you are 
watching or listening to, set REC OUT/ZONE 2 or 
REC OUT to SOURCE/REMOTE.
• To record a source other than the one that you are 
watching or listening to, set REC OUT/ZONE 2 or 
REC OUT to the source you want to record.
After this setting, you can change the source you 
are listening to and/or watching without effecting 
the recording by rotating INPUT (or pressing one 
of the input selector buttons on the remote control).
The source you record and the source sent to Zone 2 (U.S.A., 
Canada and Australia models only) are always the same.
3
Start playback (or select a broadcast station) 
on the source component.
4
Start recording on the recording component.
y
To record audio and video from different sources, set REC OUT/
ZONE 2 or REC OUT to SOURCE/REMOTE, select a video 
source first then select an audio source (see page 31).
• Do a test recording before you start an actual recording.
• When this unit is set in the standby mode, you cannot record 
between other components connected to this unit.
• The setting of TONE CONTROL, VOLUME, “Speaker level” 
(page 50) and programs does not affect the recorded material.
• A source connected to the MULTI CH INPUT jacks of this unit 
cannot be recorded.
• S-video and composite video signals pass independently 
through this unit’s video circuits. Therefore, when recording or 
dubbing video signals, if your video source component is 
connected to provide only an S-video (or only a composite 
video) signal, you can record only an S-video (or only a 
composite video) signal to your VCR.
• A given input source is not output on the same REC OUT 
channel. (For example, the signal input from VCR 1 IN is not 
output on VCR 1 OUT.)
• Check the copyright laws in your country to record from 
records, CDs, radio, etc. Recording of copyrighted material may 
infringe copyright laws.
Special considerations when recording 
DTS software
The DTS signal is a digital bit stream. Attempting to 
digitally record the DTS bit stream will result in noise 
being recorded. Therefore, if you want to use this unit to 
record sources that have DTS signals recorded on them, 
the following considerations and adjustments need to be 
made.
For LDs, DVDs and CDs encoded with DTS, when your 
player is compatible with the DTS format, follow its 
operation instruction to make a setting so that the analog 
signal will be output from the player.

If you playback a video source that uses scrambled or 
encoded signals to prevent it from being dubbed, the 
picture itself may be disturbed due to those signals.
