HI there, i have a problem being that we have a teac hdb842 digital set top box,when installed a prompt comes up every five seconds asking"service has been updated would you like to update now" when we click yes it comes up again five seconds later.

    Have had the same problem which I resolved with the upgrade link suggested but have another problem where the sound goes mute on the digital box after about ten minutes...turning box off or to tv brings sound back. Any ideas to fix this?

I had the same problem - pretty easy fix. You'll need a usb flash drive with all other files removed. Go to following link:

http://www.teac.com.au/pages/hdb842softwareupgradever161008

Print out the instructions and make sure you have winzip installed on your computer. Instructions were pretty easy to follow and seemed to fix the problem. I haven't watched the TV for a long period of time, but it seemed to sort out the problem you described and system seemed to run better than previously eg. didn't hang - receception better.

Good luck

The recorder is 10 years old. All appears to work OK. But on retuning the stations it finds none. Is this because we have moved over to digital and the recorder has an analogue tuner? any fixes?

CANNOT GET PHILIPS DVDR3305 TO RECORD ON PANASONIC TV.TX-L37D25B WHILE WATCHING ANOTHER CHANNEL?.


What is your source? Since the DVDR3305 has an analog PAL tuner and most TV stations are broadcasting in digital, you probably have some sort of set top box connected to the recorder. If you change the channel on the set top box, you will record the program on the new channel. If you are recording PAL and your TV has a PAL tuner, you should be able to just record one show while watching another with the DVDR3305 daisy-chained to the TV. Just make sure to change the TV channel not the channel on the DVDR3305.

If your TV has a digital tuner, you can split the signal before the set-top box to record one channel and watch another. (Note: basic splitters will cause some extra loss of signal and may reduce a digital signal below the threshold needed to tune in the signal. An amplified splitter can avoid this - when the amplifier is working properly.) Otherwise, you need a second set-top box (or a dual tuner set-top box).

On my set-up with an aerial antenna, I would put the splitter between the wall jack and the electronics. The incoming cable goes to the splitter, then cable 1 goes to the TV. Cable 2 goes to the set-top box. Tune the set-top box to the channel to record and check the settings with the TV set to the DVD source. (DVD set to record on Tuner (and the specific channel of the set-top box output) or front s-video or EXT1 or EXT2.) Then change the TV back to the TV source and change to the channel for the second program.


The manual for the DVDR3305 is available from Philips. The link to the manual is http://download.p4c.philips.com/files/d/dvdr3305_05/dvdr3305_05_dfu_eng.pdf .
I hope this helps.

(I actually use an A/B switch and do not try to watch a second program on the TV connected to the DVD recorder. However, most of my recordings are for time-shifting of programs that air when I can't watch any TV program.)

I have a HDR1600T now only 14months old. The problem it that all channels are pixellating and the sound is popping. Throw it in the bin and get another ?


Hi, before you bin it, get your aerial system tested as it sounds like you are dealing with a marginal signal. veify this with another set top box to prove a point if you have access to one

Awa dvd recorder dr711 can this be connected to a set top box


If it's like the DR620 it will only receive analogue from the TV aerial. I connect the AV out connections on my set box to the inlet AV on the recorder and watch and record through the recorder's "rear AV input" selection.
