Our Product Research Team
At Crutchfield, you'll get detailed, accurate information that's hard to find elsewhere.
That's because we have our own in-house Product Research team — they open the box,
verify contents, check the owner's manual, and record dimensions, features and specs.
We stay on top of new products and technologies to help people make informed choices.
Inputs and Outputs
19 Micron Video Heads:
The 19 Micron video heads provide better picture quality from EP tapes.
VCR+: Whenever you want to
record a TV program, all you need to do is locate the "PlusCode"
number, a number assigned to each program in the television listings (newspaper,
cable listing, TV Guide). Then, just enter the PlusCode number of the program
you want and the VCR is automatically programmed to record the show.
Quickset Timer Dial: The Dial
Timer allows you to make timer recordings of programs and set the clock without
turning on your TV. Set the recording timer to record up to eight programs that
will be broadcast within a month using the Dial Timer. The recording start time
and stop time can be set at one minute intervals.
Auto Clock Set: This
VCR can decode the time signals that some TV and cable channels transmit. When
the VCR picks up a time signal, it will automatically set the time. The time can
also be set manually.
Auto Tape Speed: This
unit will automatically change the tape speed from SP to EP if recording time is
longer than the remaining tape.
Commercial Skip: You
may skip past a scene you don't want to watch by pressing the "Commercial
Skip" button on the remote during playback. The VCR will skip past 30
seconds of tape (up to a maximum of 2 minutes) for each time you press the
button and resume playback.
On Screen Menus:
On-screen menus are used to help with settings adjustment and programming. You
may set the unit to display the menus in English, Spanish, or French.
Child Lock Circuitry:
After you have set the timer for recording, you can lock all of the buttons on
the VCR so that the settings are not cancelled by mistake. The VCR will not work
except for timer recordings until it is unlocked.
Scan and Play: This
feature uses the unit's auto indexing to locate a desired point on the tape.
When the search button on the remote is pressed, the VCR will automatically
advance to the next index mark and play about 5 seconds. If play is not pressed,
the unit will search for the next index mark and continue in the same manner
until it reaches the end of the tape. This function can be performed in both
forward and reverse directions.
Blank Search: The unit will
search and automatically stop at the beginning of a blank space.
Flash Rewind: The unit will
rewind a T-120 videotape in about 60 seconds
