Thank you for having the manual I needed for an older model Aiwa stero I had found on Ebay --- I wanted the Aiwa because I had tapes and cd's but I did not have a manual as to how to operate the system... I found what I needed and it has enabled me to set the system up for my enjoyment.
The manual was very helpfull, it answerdes all my questions, and i was surprized to find the original manual on this site! Big thumbs uP:)

HOW TO USE THE REMOTE TO CONTROL YOUR TV
VIRTUAL HD button Press this button to toggle between 1080i and 540p. 540p and 1080i represent two ways to display the TV signal. â¢ Progressive: The âpâ in 540p tells you that the display is showing you the picture in the progressive format. With the progressive format the complete picture is created by drawing lines across the screen from left to right which fill the screen from the top to bottom. If you look very closely at the screen there will be a very small space in between each line. The progressive format is good for displaying fast moving programs such as a sporting event. Interlaced: The âiâ in 1080i tells you that the display is showing you the picture in the interlaced format. With the interlaced format the picture is created by drawing lines across the screen from left to right which fill the screen from top to bottom, and then returning to the top and drawing another set of lines in between the first set. The TV draws the lines so fast that our eyes canât see them. If you look very closely at the screen you will notice a smoother image that with the progressive format. The interlace format is good for displaying detailed images like feature films. You can compare the progressive and interlaced formats by toggling the âVIRTUAL HDâ button on the remote control. Some people like the crisp picture from 540p and some people like the smooth and detailed 1080i. Hitachi offers you the choice. Note: The VIRTUAL HD button will not change the picture with a 1080i HDTV input. HDTV signals bypass the VIRTUAL HD circuitry and are shown in their native 1080i format. INFO button Press this button when you want to check the channel being received, the picture source, if the channel has stereo (ST) or second audio program (SAP), the time and CHANNEL ID.
