Auto Clock Set/Auto Tuner Set

This unit sets the clock and tuner channels automatically when AC
power cord is first connected to an AC outlet. The antenna cable
must be connected for the Plug & Play setting.
The time and date can be set automatically by the clock setting
data transmitted from one of the regular TV broadcast channels.
We call this TV channel the host channel and it is a PBS channel
in your area.
1Connect the antenna cable to the unit. (pg. 19) Then connect
the AC power cord to an AC outlet. Do not turn on the unit.
The clock and tuner channels will be set automatically.
LOADING blinks on the front display panel when the AC plug of the
AC power cord is connected into an AC outlet and it takes
approximately 50 seconds for the unit to be turned on. This is not a
Auto Clock Set is performed first.
AUTO blinks on the front display panel during Auto Clock Set.
Auto Channel Set is performed next. Auto Channel Set scans all the
channels that are receivable by your unit. During Auto Channel Set,
the channel numbers are displayed as they are scanned and set.
When Plug & Play setting has been complete successfully, the
correct clock time is displayed. If you perform Plug & Play setting
successfully, there is no need to perform Clock Set (pg. 22) and
Tune r S et (pg. 23). If, however, you want to add or delete
channels, refer to Manual Channel Set (pg. 23).
Plug & Play Set
If you use a cable box, Plug&Play will not function; set the clock
and tuner channels separately. (pg. 22 23)
Depending on areas or reception conditions, the unit may not
receive the Auto clock setting data from the PBS channel. If this
function is taking a considerable amount of time, it may be
necessary to perform the Semiauto or Manual Clock Set
If AUTO CLOCK is set to ON (pg.22), the clock will be
adjusted automatically by the host channel every hour (except
11:00 PM, midnight, 1:00 AM and 2:00 AM) using the incoming
PBS channel clock setting data. (This automatic clock adjustment
can only be performed when the unit is turned off. The clock will be
adjusted just on these hours on the time displayed on the front
display panel, not on the actual real time.) The default setting of
AUTO CLOCK is ON. (pg.22)
If the memory backup fails, because a power outage occurs or
because the AC power cord is unplugged, Plug & Play will be
performed when power is restored to the unit.
What to do if Plug & Play setting failed
If an incorrect time is displayed on the front display panel, you may
be receiving the clock setting data of a PBS channel from an
adjacent time zone, or an incorrect PBS channel from a cable TV
system. In this case, perform Semiauto Clock Set (pg.22 ) or
Manual Clock Set (pg.22).
If “– –:–– appears on the front display panel, your antenna cable
may not be connected to the unit or there may not be a Host PBS
signal available in your area. Ensure that the antenna cable is
connected correctly. Then turn on and off the unit; the Plug & Play
setting will be automatically reactivated. If Plug & Play setting is not
performed though the antenna cable is connected correctly,
perform Manual Clock Set (pg. 22) and Auto Channel Set
(pg. 23) or Manual Channel Set (pg. 23).
During Auto Clock Set

During Auto Channel Set
