Direct function

Default setting:
On
(all components)
You can use the direct function feature to control one
component using the remote control while at the same
time, using your receiver to playback a different compo-
nent. This could let you, for example, use the remote
control to set up and listen to a CD on the receiver and
then use the remote control to rewind a tape in your VCR
while you continue to listen to your CD player.
When direct function is on, any component you select
(using the
MULTI CONTROL
buttons) will be selected by
both the receiver and the remote control. When you turn
direct function off, you can operate the remote control
without affecting the receiver.

Multi Operation and System Off

The Multi Operation feature allows you to program a
series of commands for the components in your system.
For example, you could turn on your TV, turn on your DVD
player and start playing the loaded DVD using only two
buttons on the remote control.
Similar to multi operations, System Off allows you to use
one button to stop and switch off a series of components
in your system at the same time.
Note
Before Multi Operation and System Off will work
correctly, you must setup the remote to work with
your TV and other components (see
Recalling preset
codes
on page 58 and
Programming signals from
other remote controls
on page 59 for more on this).
Power on and off commands only work with
components that have a standby mode.
