A two in one question. On occasions I want to play VHS videos the easiest way would be connecting though the composite connectors on the front of the recorder, selecting the correct line input and pressing play on the connected VHS deck. As I have a load of series linked programs configured on the Sony will my VHS viewing be interruped when a timer activates or is there way to pause programmed timers? Would dubbing from the video deck to the Sony's hard disk though the front connectors also be interrupted if a timer was set to activate? I can't see anything in the manual.
