Re: connect philips dvdr80 to intigrated freeview tv
Solved the problem by connecting the freeview box back into the dvd recorder. Apparently because the dvdr was made before tvs with integrated freeview, it can only recieve decoded signals from a freeview box, ie analog

Hi, I think the better task is (A) You can try switch scart's!! Then try to record on DVDR or leave as it is and look out for picture on your VCR!!! If you do (B) you will lose a picture quality! good luck
You need a freeview box to connect to the scart INPUT of the DVD recorder. The Freeview box has to have a programmable timer built in. Connect your aerial to the freeview box, the aerial output then goes into the TV. You program the DVD to the times you want to record each program, but always the input is the SCart. You the program the Freeview box to change to the right program at the beginning of the program you want to record.
The source is E1, unless you are trying to display something froma camcorder or security cam. Philips does not provide enough cables with this product - they only provide you one set with which to PLAY a movie. You will need another red, white and yellow cable with which to RECORD. If you have a cable/satellite box, connect a 2nd red, white and yellow cord from cable box OUT to Philips AV IN. Switch the SOURCE on the Philips remote to E1, and your TV to whichever source you have the original red, white and yellow plugged into. You should get picture, and be able to record now.
hi evguess,few things to look in your dvdr is that it should record major formats.it should have a FireWire connection for DV camcorder hookup.and relatively painless operation and ofcourse sould have all the spares avalable on your local market. ive got a few options the best available dvdr. 1)philips dvdr80. 2)lite-on LVW-5005 3)DMR E50K (THIS MODEL DOES NOT HAVE A FIREWIRE BUT ITS THE LEAST EXPENSIVE MODEL. hope this help to reach your requirement. plz rate it if this review helps u.thanks..
Hi Ive just bought a thomson dtr box and the picture keeps freezing .new arial new cable etc.well ive just tried a £20 freeview box and its fine good clear picture and dosnt freeze.I had a good signal when using the thompson box and its the box load of rubbish taking it back to shop.
OK, I think I see the problem there.
The aerial lead from the DVDR to TV should be removed.
You should have it setup the same as the other Freeview - VCR - TV
Main aerial to Freeview input.
Loop aerial from freeview output to DVDR areial input (all this does is allow you to watch freeview, or standard both out of the DVDR)
Scart from Freeview to DVDR input
Scart from DVDR output to TV
Set DVDR to AV input mode.
Set TV to AV (whatever number you need for that..you now won't get anything on screen unless you have the right input selected)
If you can now see the Freeview picture on the TV and change the channels with the Freeview remote then you should be set for recording.
Having the aerial and a scart lead both going to the TV is not needed.
