Re: DVD Set up

If it's the Espejo 311i model (mine was £30 from Morgan) I don't think you'll have any joy trying to select channels direct from the unit. Mine works fine with a Freeview box but channel selection is strictly on the latter, then the SCART goes into the recorder's No. 2 socket (No. 1 goes on to the TV). You can record whatever the box is receiving by selecting 'EXT2' as the source. Even if you never record analogue it's a good idea to plug an aerial feed into the Mico so it can set its clock. Note PDC doesn't work (for me anyway) when recording via the SCART. If someone has set it up strangely you can reset from scratch by unplugging, holding the front panel On switch in, then reconnecting to the mains while keeping the button pressed until the first setup screen appears on your TV. It will auto-tune to any analogue signals it finds on the aerial input. I could probably scan at least some of the manual if you are really stuck.

I have a Pioneer DVR5100H which was set up to record Analogue programs - can I change the set up to accept digital programs. I have tried auto setup but it doesn't pick up any programs?


You can't record digital programmes with this recorder unless it is connected to a digital tuner, e.g. a Freeview box or Sky digibox. This recorder has a built in analogue tuner which allows it to record analogue transmissions. Recorders which can record digital transmissions have a built-in digital tuner and usually have a DVB logo (actually looks more like DV3) on the front.

If you want to record digital programmes using this recorder, you need to connect it to a Freeview or Sky digibox, preferably with a scart cable. It is not sufficient to connect it to a TV with a digital tuner or built in Freeview as the player does NOT record directly from the TV, it must be connected directly to the transmission source. A basic stand-alone digital tuner (Freeview box) can be bought for as little as £10-15.
