Having bought a pre-owned Sony FM stereo tuner through eBay, it came without any manuals. It soon became clear that to get the best from this excellent tuner I needed a decent manual because much of the operation was not intuitive to a newboy to hi fi like me. I managed to download the official Sony multi-lingual manual from Owner-Manuals.com with no problem at all - a really quick and easy service. I'm very glad I did because I found out all the operations of the tuner and was then able to not only set it up quickly but also to get much more from it that poke-and-hope trialling would ever achieve. In my book $4.99 very well spent.
This manual is immaculate in it's accuracy. Everything is written very clearly and easy to understand. Written by a professional who wants to convey a clear and easy to understand message!!

VCR Aerial TV RF-Coaxial cable
Connect all the cables as shown in the illustration, then connect the AC Mains lead (part of the package) to an AC wall outlet. To be able to receive TV programmes it is mandatory to connect the RF-Coaxial cable even if the video recorder is connected by a 21-pin Scart cable.
21-pin Scart cable
If you decide to just use the RF-Coaxial cable to connect the TV set you must adjust the video output channel with the TV set's input channel.
