Recording Freeview chanels

Although my Toshiba RD-XS34SB recorder records perfectly from my skybox it will not record from my new Freeview television (only analogue chanels not the digital ones. The Tv is an LG:- 22LG3000. As the Skybox is obviously digital I am baffled.The TV has lots of connectivity but only the 2 scarts have output as well as input. the skybox is also scart output and is ok.

    Unfortunately this does not work.I have been told to ascertain this recorder is DVBT compatible. Can you advise please.

  • rodcliff Nov 24, 2008

    I am still puzzled. Should this recorder be able to accept all digital chanels or has it been superceded by later technoligy?

The Toshiba RD-XS34SB can record perfectly any digital source, including your freeview box.

All you need to do is ensuring that you are connecting in the proper way.

Connect output from freeview into the Toshiba, and then connect toshiba output to TV.

Ensure that the recorder is set to record from audio input channel (line one/inpuut 1/av etc.).

This should allow you to record your freeview programs.

1. Disconnect the aerial cable from your TV, and connect it to the RF IN (FROM ANT.) terminal on the recorder.
2 Using the coaxial cable (supplied), connect the RF OUT (TO TV) terminal to the TV.
3 Connect the AV1(AUDIO/VIDEO)IN/OUT socket to a TV equipped with SCART input using a SCART cable (not supplied).
4 Connect the power cord to the recorder and plug it to a wall outlet.
TV stations (in the range of UHF E21-E69) will be stored in memory. The process will finish after a
few minutes. (The display on the recorder shows
“Auto” while the Plug & Auto Set Up function is
running.) Then the date and time are set
automatically from broadcast signal.
5 Check the following buttons work properly.

The DVD recorder does not seem to have Freeview built in, well no reference in the instructions?
Have you connected the aerial lead in/tested that it is OK for picking up analogue channels into the DVD recorder?. Recording freeview from the TV onto your dvd recorder means that you will have to have the TV switched on and will not be able to watch any other freeview channel other than the one you are recording.

As your dvd recorder does not have a freeview tuner then the easiest way to allow you to both record one freeview channel and watch a different freeview channel at the same time, is to connect a separate freeview STB to the AV2 input of your dvd recorder and use this AV2 source as the channel to record. (You will have to preset the channel needed on the STB first). AV1 on the DVD recorder should be connected to AV1 on the TV.

It sounds like some connectivity problem.

Go to your on screen menu under dtr settings and format the hard drive. If you have been recording the hard drive may be full and some programs need to be deleted to allow more recording space. You may also unplug the unit for several minutes and use the reset box option.

Hi, poog_23350, I caught your post! How a Duo DVR receiver works is that the TV you have it set to record on will not allow you to change the channel while the recording is in progress. The other TV, that isn't recording anything, can be used freely to flip through channels.

In this case, it's TV2, the one upstairs in your daughter's room, that's currently set to record on while the downstairs TV is free to use. This can be adjusted by pulling up the Main Menu with the Menu button on the remote, selecting option 8, then option 5, and changing the TV1/TV2 setting there on the Record Plus screen.

If you'd like a receiver capable of allowing channel changing while recording a program, our VIP 612 receiver is a Solo receiver that acts like a Duo. What this means is that it has one TV output and two tuners. Along with being able to change channels while a recording is in progress with this type of receiver, you can also record two programs on two different channels simultaneously.

Hope that helps!

Thanks for posting to Fixya and it is my pleasure to guide you.

"Will not accept blanks for recording it says No Disc."

from Technika manual: Start Quote
VCR/DVD Recorder; I have connected the TV to my VCR or DVD Recorder via SCART but it is not recording. In addition to connecting via SCART, you should connect the aerial cable from the wall socket to your VCR/DVD Recorder and another aerial cable from the VCR/DVD Recorder to the TV." Also; "Check the DVD is a region 2 disc - to change the region of the DVD player, refer to section 'Changing Regions'.

Note: USB record function is only avilable in Digital/Freeview TV/Radio mode. Due to copyright laws and illegal copying/recording it is not possible to record to/from any other input/output source.

DVD MENU: To access this menu, press [MENU] button on the remote control. TV System - Choose from the following options. NTSC; Normally used for discs from North America, Japan etc.
Auto; For both NTSC and PAL. This TV/DVD player is pre-set to play Region 2 DVDs.
Tip: This television contains one TV tuner, therefore it can only record the channel you are watching or record one channel while the television is in standby mode.

You can not record to a DVD, according to their manual. That is why you get the no disc error. It does not have the play sector at the beginning of the DVD. You can record to USB Flash Drive however.

Quote:
USB RECORD - DIGITAL/FREEVIEW MODE
Built into this television is a USB record facility. This function is available in Digital/Freeview mode when used in conjunction with a compatible USB memory stick or USB Hard drive. The benefi ts of this are as follows:
• Pause live TV/Radio and then playback, fast forward and rewind (up to live TV)
• One button record, if you decide you want to record the current programme
• Easy programmable recording from the 7 day TV Guide
• Record TV/Radio and watch/listen back on your computer/laptop
Due to the nature of the product, it is necessary to use a high speed USB memory stick (as the TV reads from and writes to the memory stick at the same time, some memory sticks may not be suitable). You can purchase high speed memory sticks from some computer stores, alternatively, we have a selection of tested and compatible memory sticks available to purchase directly from the helpline/web site. These are available in 4GB, 8GB and 16GB. (Please check the web site/helpline for latest specifications and prices). End Quote

Good luck and please post back that you this has solved your problem and click thumbs up of your success or that I can be more helpful.

Can i use the USB port on my sagum freeview reciever to download programmes to my PC?


This appears to be a television tuner with accompanying recording software. You can watch TV and record what you watch. You cannot "download from the Internet" using this device, if that is what you mean.
