DVD records a black screen if tv is on standby.

Records fine when tv is on - defeats the object somewhat, I need it to record when I am out! If I am in I will watch the telly itself!

You have tuned the dvd recorders channels? dont forget a recorder dvd/hd/vcr is actually a tv set without its own screen and to record from channels you need to have its on board channels tuned in... what you have been probably doing is using a function on many recorders that records direct tv... what this means is it records the feed back signal through the scart lead of what ever channel your tv is tuned to at the time that is why no tv on = no signal

I cant get dvd recorder to record ext 2


Firstly, is the scart lead plugged in fully? Does it get the sound or nothing?
Is the recorder sitched to the correct input? It may be trying to pull a signal from the TV which may not be passing through the picture from the sky box.
Also, is the scart lead fully wired? Some only work one way so try spinning it round between the recorder and sky box.

Digital tv -analogue vcr records and time records and plays back only with the picture on. It will not record with picture on standby


Of course it won't record if the TV is in standby as there is no signal. If you wish to record TV programmes without having the TV switched on, you need a freeview or freesat box for your Video Recorder.
Hope this helps.

Vcr recorda blank when digital tv is put on standby.


this is because you are recording a direct connection (what is on the screen is recorded) that is an option with some equipment.. unfortunately this means if there is nothing on the screen well you get nothing..

You need to record from the machines own built in tuner dont use direct record.. a vcr/pvr/dvdr after all remember is like a tv without a screen that can record it has its own channels to do this

DVD-VR320 combo DVD player


I think its the dvd players internal settings that need to be adjusted. If there is a menu set the sky box to the connection it is plugged into. Although this might sound strange some units when you connect them up will play fine through that input but unless the settings of the player is adjusted iut will record a blank screen because its default setting for recording might not be either the connection method you are using or the input you are using. I hope this makes sense.

DVD recording.


Sounds like the DVDR is recording from the digi-box through the TV, so when the TV is switched of or into standby the signal is lost, causing the recorder to pause.

Assuming the digi-box has two scart sockets, connect as follows:

  • Scart 1 or TV scart of the digi-box to the TV.
  • Scart 2 or VCR/DVD scart of the digi-box to scart 1 of the DVDR3380.
The TV aerial should already be connected through the digi-box and DVDR3380 to the TV

To record from the digi-box, select AV1 / E1 / EXT1 on the DVDR3380

Is there a solution?


I have a similar setup. Your problem is because you are selecting the recording on the digital tuner of the TV. When you do this you need to keep the TV on and canot switch channel.

You should make sure you use the digital tuner on the DMR-EX77 recorder and then you can use the TV as you like.
