    THIS IS THE SOLUTION: (I tested it when I got the machine back home)

    If you press HDMI button on remote you get a blank screen (but the DVD still has sound)
    Press it again and nothing appears to happen (although apparently the DVD is switching to another mode)
    Press
    the button yet again and WAIT (I counted to 10!) then the DVD reverts
    back to AV or whatever you call "normal" tv and everything is OK again!
    (on some models you might have to press the HDMI button a fourth time
    but the message is to wait a bit for the DVD introductory screen to
    appear - it does not happen instantly)

SOURCE: Wharfedale DVDRHD400 Set up Issue

Hi I had the same problem. The answer is to use a scart lead on the freeview box and connect it to the input/output scart on the DVD. Then connect a scart lead from the TV out on the DVD to the TV. You then press Video source on the DVD remote until 'scart' is displayed to pick the freeview channels. Hope that helps

SOURCE: find channels

You say you`ve plugged the outside aerial lead directly into the DVD recorder aerial input socket, you connected an aerial link lead from the aerial output socket on the DVD recorder and you`ve got a Scart lead from the TV output socket on the rear of the DVD recorder into the AV1 socket on the TV. I`m saying all this because in the past, I`ve had customers say this to me only to find when I call round that they`ve plugged the aerial into phono sockets instead of the earial input socket. The aerial lead will fit physically but not electrically. Have you got a good picture on your TV with the DVD recorder switched to standby?? If yes, Does it play a DVD perfectly through the TV?? If yes, then everything is connected up correctly, When you press the virgin menu button to your DVD, it should show setup/install?? When you do get to the free-view or channel setup/install menu, and you tell it to search for new channels, does it scan?? Does a bar or do the numbers rise and the % number rise as it finds new channels?? If they do and everything is connected and working as I described earlier but still no channels are found, Try unplugging from the mains and reboot your DVD recorder, then repeat the whole menu install procedure sequence again. Other than that, there`s nothing else you can do, Basically, you`ve got a faulty machine where it requires an engineers eye I`m afraid. Ian

SOURCE: Wharfedale DVD recorder, no sound.

HI if you mean scart connectors on rear of DVD recorder, try swapping scart inputs on DVD recorder and if no joys then on set top box. (some units have 1 input designated for TV and the other for Set top box input)

Progresive scan problem and didn't get picture in tv


Our problem was that we could not get picture on the tv screen but it got sound.We tried to solve it using different techniques like the setup,video source,function keys pressed on remote control by trial(only assumed) and error as we could not see the screen and I used scart with every conection but three point pin was free so I put only one pin in video out put and at that moment I could see the picture on tv.

Trying to play a disk on my Wharfedale DVDR24HD160F and all I get is the word ROOT coming up on the player front and the player stops.


Dear Team. I was getting vision but no sound or sound but no vision a right dogs dinner of a mess. What I decided to do was to run the recorder by applying the facory defaults. This reconfigured the freeview side and also it corrected the fault because on setting things up afterwards the recorder did what it was supposed to do. Hope this is a help and thank you for your interest. Dave.

DVDRHD400F tuner has no sound.


Yep -same problem, but I bought mine for £18 at an auction, thought I'd done so well, but no warantee!!
-Doh. Sound perfect from DVD, so not a scart issue. Tried factory reset / retune, no joy. Freeview silent. Warfdale, you used to be the best in the world; what's gone wrong? :(

Change the Scart setting (in the setup menu) from the default setting (RGB) to the other available setting (CVSC?).
I have a problem with my box restting the clock on a random basis, making it impossible to set a timer to record anything - let us know if you get the same problem via this site!
