This unit controls the standard transport controls on the Tascam cassette deck (Play, Stop, F.F., Rew, Pause and Record). It uses any standard universal remote programmed to control a Sony VCR.

Instructions

Installation: Turn off the power to the tape deck. Plug the remote adapter into the remote connector on the back of the tape 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 standard 6 transport functions: Play, Stop, F.F., Rewind, Record and Pause. 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 two jumpers labeled 1 and 2. They configure the remote device code per the table below.

Configuring the RCA Universal Remote
To program the RCA remote press and hold the Code Search button until the red light comes on. Release the Code Search button and momentarily press the VCR button then enter the 3 digit code from the table above (default is 119). The red light should blink after each keypress and go out after the last digit is entered. Press the VCR button and press one of the transport control buttons (PLAY, STOP, FF, REW, REC or PAUSE). The light on the front of the remote adapter should blink off momentarily. If the light does not blink off try reprogramming the remote or check the state of the jumpers inside the remote adapter. On the RCA remotes the REC button needs to be pressed twice to activate record. RCA RCU-1300 manual and code list.

On the DirecTV remotes the REC button needs to be pressed twice to activate record. DirecTV manual and code list.
