Harman-Kardon CDR 20 CD Player User Manual

Program Play
The CDR 20’s advanced programming system
enables you to program the order in which
tracks are played, to repeat one track or all
tracks, or to repeat any segment of a disc
without regard to track numbers.
Programming Play Lists
To program the order of playback for the tracks
on a disc, insert the disc, let the unit read the
Table of Contents information, and wait until
the disc has stopped and the number of tracks
and total running time is displayed. Next, select
the deck that will be programmed by pressing
the CDP Select button d on the remote for
the Play Deck 3 or the CDR Select button
on the remote for the Record Deck %.
To begin the programming sequence, press
the Program button e and note that the
PROG Indicator B will illuminate and
the Information Display K will show
00 00 : 00.
Next, enter the track numbers to be played by
pressing the Numeric Keys p. For two-digit
track numbers, be certain to enter the second
digit within three seconds after the first number
is entered.As each track is entered, the display
will blink three times, alternating between two
displays.The first display will show the track
number just entered on the left side of the
Information Display K under the Track
Indicator O, while the right side will flash
the number of steps that have been pro-
grammed. For example, after programming the
first step to be track number 3, the display will
flash 03 P-01.
Alternating with the track number and program
step will be a display of the track and the total
running time of all tracks that have been
programmed so far. For example, a display of
06 11:25 will indicate that track number
six was the last track programmed, and that the
total time of all tracks so far is 11 minutes and
25 seconds.The Total Time Indicators NL
will flash with this display to remind you of the
display’s contents.
These displays will alternate three times, and
then show a steady display of the total time
and last track programmed.
Continue to add tracks in the order you wish to
have them played until the programming ses-
sion is complete.You may add up to 20 tracks,
repeating a track if desired, as long as the total
number does not exceed 20. If you exceed the
20 track limit, the display will read FULL.
Tracks may also be added using the Next
zÓˆ and Previous buttons iÔ˜ to
locate the track, and the Program button e
to enter that track to the programmed
When the complete list of tracks has been
entered, press the Play button j*˘.
The tracks will then play in the order they have
been entered. Note that a programmed list of
tracks may also be recorded if the disc being
programmed is in the Play Deck 3. Follow
the instructions on page 20 for complete
information on recording and dubbing.
Checking, Editing and Clearing

track number and the total running time so far
in the program (e.g., 12 16:04 tells you
that at this point you have programmed a total
of 16 minutes and 4 seconds of material).
At any point in the list you may insert a new
track by simply entering the track number using
the Numeric Keys p. Simply press the but-
