I have an Alba 32880hdf freeview tv. I cannot record freeview programmes to my panasonic NV-FJ 780 vcr which has 2 scart sockets. I have no problem recording the teresteral channels. Can you help pls


Hi Victor,

You can't record the Freeview channels from the TV. It doesn't work that way. The reason you can still record terrestrial channels is because the VCR is still connected to your roof aerial with a co-axial cable and the VCR has its own built-in analogue tuner for recording terrestrial TV programmes.

To record the digital Freeview channels, you will either need to connect a separate Freeview set-top box to the VCR, or buy a VCR which has a built-in digital (DVB-T) tuner.

The VCR does not record programmes from the TV. It needs to be connected directly to the signal source, i.e. your aerial.

If you need any further assistance, please let me know.

Regards,
BElectric

No Signal On D/TV


You may lose some channels when you retune the TV as the channels have been rearranged. To locate them look at the EPG although you may still find that some channels are no longer available on FREEVIEW. See the following link for additional information

http://www.freeview.co.uk/_retuneinfo/

If the above process does not work then check the link above for additional information and also visit the accompanying site links below to find more information for your model of TV / FREEVIEW box.

For troubleshooting the retune procedure visit http://tvretune.co.uk/troubleshooting/

Is mhy samsung not hdtv?


You must have a digital tuner built in to the tv if you want to scan for Freeview digital channels. If you have digital cable or satellite the decoder box will unscramble the signal and send it to the tv through a scart connection or HDMI cable. Not all tv's have a digital tuner built in but if it is HDTV it can show an increased resolution image if the output from the cable box or dvd player is high definition.

Dont not pick up freeview channels


if u pick up NON freeview channels, i think the antenna isnt good enough to pick up the signal..freeview requires a very good signal, very important.
If you think this isnt the problem rescan the channels
If you think the TV is faulty contact Samsung directly

Cannot find freeview/digital on our new TV


You can only get the freeview / digital channels through cable by subscribing to a package which includes them. They will then supply the necessary decoder to get the channels. Otherwise you will need a digital aerial and a freeview box if you tv is not dtv ready.
