Using One Remote Control for More than One Unit

NOTE:  When you plug the cable into a component's CONTROL IN jack, that
       component's remote sensor does not function.

If you also have an Optimus professional series CD player, VCR, or cassette
deck with the OSR mark, you can connect its CONTROL IN jack to the receiver
so you can control all of your equipment with a single remote control. You
can also use the other component's remote control by pointing it at the
receiver's front panel.

1.  Connect each component to the receiver as shown in "Connecting Program
    Sources" on Faxback Doc. # 34922, Fig. A.

2.  Connect the cable supplied with the CD player, VCR, or cassette deck
    between the receiver's CONTROL OUT jack and the other component's
    CONTROL IN jack.

3.  When you want to control more than one other component using the
    receiver's remote control, daisy-chain the CONTROL OUT and CONTROL IN
    connections as shown.

Installing the Remote Control's Batteries

CAUTIONS:  Use only fresh batteries of the recommended size and type.

           Always remove old or weak batteries. Batteries can leak chemicals
           that can damage electronic circuits.

NOTE:  If the remote's range is reduced, replace the batteries immediately.

The remote control uses two AA batteries (not included).  For the longest
battery life, we recommend Radio Shack's alkaline batteries (Cat. No.

1.  Press and open the battery compartment cover.

2.  Place two fresh AA batteries in the compartment as indicated by the
    polarity symbols (+ and -) marked in the compartment.

3.  Replace the battery compartment cover.

Using the Control

The remote control works up to a distance of about 23 feet, and within a 30-
degree angle on either side of the receiver.  Point the control at the
receiver's front panel and press the desired button(s).

Many buttons on the remote control work the same as buttons on the
receiver's front panel.  Use these buttons exactly as you would use the
corresponding buttons on the receiver.


The remote control can also control other compatible audio/video components
when you connect them to the receiver's CONTROL OUT jack.  Set the switch
to AUDIO to control audio components such as CD players or cassette decks.
Set the switch to VCR to control video components such as a VCR.

When you set the switch to VCR, dual-function buttons control the function
marked in gold next to the button.  For example, the button marked CENTER
MODE and TEST TONE operates as the center mode adjust when you set the
switch to AUDIO and as the test tone function when you set the switch to
