Well, do you have the External TV tuner card?

If so, the instruictions should tell you how alot better than I can. but if you need help. try this.

Install any CD or drivers that came with the Tuner card, the drivers may be pre-installed witht he windows and may not need to be installed. you will know cuz when you hook it to the laptop, it will either auto detect or ask you to install.

Once you do that, you need to plug your T.V's out put siganl cables ( RCA A/V cables typically) into the Tuner card.

Then you need to open the program that manages the T.V. tuner card and go through and set it up to detect the dignal from the T.V. and there you go. There should be an option to Play, record, whatver, depending on the software.


AVERMEDIA.com makes T.V. Tuner cards that are plugged into the mini PCI ports and are good at tuning chanels and radio and allowing you to record straight from the cable signal without using a T.V. at all.

It just deoebds on if you have the right equipment.

If you can, take pictures of what you have and post them and we can try if the above doesnt help.

Good luck

This link will give you an example of what you need to get in order to do that. The S-video port on your laptop is for output, you need something to capture a video signal:

How do I record a programme/film on my Samsung smart TV without having to watch what I'm recording and also how do I record more than one thing on at the same time.


This is not possible, samsung tv do not have a recorder per say it is a timeshift function. So you can only record one channel at the same time. If you need this kind of thing try using TiVo or some service that your ISP provider offers.

I have an Alba 32880hdf freeview tv. I cannot record freeview programmes to my panasonic NV-FJ 780 vcr which has 2 scart sockets. I have no problem recording the teresteral channels. Can you help pls


Hi Victor,

You can't record the Freeview channels from the TV. It doesn't work that way. The reason you can still record terrestrial channels is because the VCR is still connected to your roof aerial with a co-axial cable and the VCR has its own built-in analogue tuner for recording terrestrial TV programmes.

To record the digital Freeview channels, you will either need to connect a separate Freeview set-top box to the VCR, or buy a VCR which has a built-in digital (DVB-T) tuner.

The VCR does not record programmes from the TV. It needs to be connected directly to the signal source, i.e. your aerial.

If you need any further assistance, please let me know.

Regards,
BElectric

Can I record programmes from tv whwn I have samsung dvd v5600


Afraid not! ... You need a Recordable DVD player to record TV programs....
The Samsung v4600 is just a DVD player, with no recording capabilities.
