Algorithm for programming your VCR

(see "How Stuff Works" for more)

The instructions from my new VCR:

  1. If the clock and calendar are not correctly set, then go to page 9 of the instruction manual and follow the instructions there before proceeding.
  2. Place a blank tape in the VCR tape slot.
  3. Repeat steps 4 through 7 for each program that you wish to record, up to a maximum of 10 shows.
  4. Enter the channel number that you wish to record, and press the button labeled CHAN.
  5. Enter the time that you wish recording to start, and then press the button labeled TIME-START.
  6. Enter the time that you wish recording to stop, and then press the button labeled TIME-FINISH.
  7. This completes the programming of one show. If you do not wish to record anything else, press the button labeled END_PROG.
  8. Press the button labeled TIMER. Your VCR is now ready to record.
