I don't have a manual for the JVC (SR-VS30), nor do I have the remote. Is there some way to suppress this annoying message?
Turn of superimpose/overlay in the JVC menu. Simple. By default, it is turned on.
If you've never gone into the menu, you should also disable R3.
This is one of the few models were JVC calibration is actually helpful. Most models should have that turned off as well.
The manual is here: http://pro.jvc.com/prof/attributes/i...l_id=MDL101333
But I'll also attach it here later: http://www.digitalfaq.com/forum/vcr-...r-manuals.html
The official is broken into 4 parts, no sense in that. I'll re-merge for my attachment.
And just FYI to other reading this: Never use the DV side. It eats tapes, defect of the model series. You get it for the S-VHS inside. Forget the DV is ever there. Whenever I sold my extras, I purposely blocked off that half of the deck, sometimes even disconnecting its power inside. I tended to customize these in several ways.

Don't do that. I've never seen a universal/programmable that correctly or completely mimics the OEM remote. Just get an official MBR remote, it only costs about $15. The premium remote, made specifically for this unit, is about $25.
Look for the LP20337.

Beware of stock photos!!!
More are used, so inspect the auction images closely. You don't want missing covered, corroded battery slots, or just something nasty. I actually have a few new ones available, recently bought a batch of NOS from a defunct vendor. Wanted a few remotes for my better decks being sold on the marketplace.
