Installation: Turn off the power to the tape deck. Plug the remote adapter into the REMOTE connector on the back of the deck. Now power can be turned back on. The light on the front of the remote adapter should be on.

The remote adapter controls the following 7 functions: Play, Pause, Stop, Fast Forward, Rewind, Record and RTZ. All functions can be controlled using any universal remote programmed for the proper Sony VCR code.

The remote adapter can be programmed to respond to Sony VHS VCR, Beta VCR, 8mm VCR and Laser Disc Player codes. To select between the four options there are two jumpers inside the unit. Remove the two screws on the bottom of the unit and remove the top cover.

Toward the front window are set of jumpers. The two jumpers labeled 1 and 2 configure the remote device code per the table below.
