Question about Sony Televison & Video

2 Answers

New dvd recorder connected to tv. TV works fine but recorder not.

Brand new Sony digital dvd recorder connected correctly (with scart) to Hitachi digital TV, aerial connected to dvd then TV. Digital TV works perfectly but recorder puts out message that it can't communicate with TV and signals too weak (we can see the transmitter two miles away from our window). Recorder will play dvd's but will not record any digital TV channels. What do we need to do?

Hi, This is not the correct setup for incoming digital. You should have it the other way around. It needs to go to the set first as that is where the tuner is located. Good Luck to you!

    Also--
    Check the mode of recording, there are two types, one being editable will not play on most other devices.2. check whether the discs are finalized
    3. If you are using re-writable discs, you may not get the option to change the video mode, so try using regular dvd -r or +r discs.

    Thanks

We have a Funai analogue tv and a Sony analogue DVD recorder, we need to know how to connect them using 1 or 2 digiboxes.


If your TV and DVD recorder have two SCART sockets each, then you can connect the two boxes to the second scart of each device. When recording the channel selected will have to be AV2. If either of them hasn't a second scart socket. Then I suggest you get one of these scart switching boxes from places such as Amazon.

The buttons on the unit will allow you to record, whilst still watching the TV. 12_17_2012_5_01_21_pm.jpg

Connecting a dvd 250gb hard drive recorder to tv and virgin box


Right then, on the back of the virgin box there are 2 scart outlets, connect one scart from the TV scart port to the scart in on the DVD recorder, then connect one scart lead from the scart out on the DVD recorder to the TV.
Find the DVD recorder source channel on the TV and then use the DVD remote control to find the digital input on the DVD recorder, this is usually AUX channel.
Post back if you need any more help


Good luck and thanks for using Fixya!!

Dvd recorder


It is the signal that is digital not the TV, does your TV have a scart connection on the back? (a 2 rowed 21 pin female connection point).
That is the best way you can connect your DVD Rec. to it. The digital ready is just going to be DVB or something similar, which is just a form of digital freeview. Dont be conned by salesmen into buying a new TV with the DVD, as long as your TV was bought in the last decade or so it will have scart. If not you should just loop the RF out from the video into the DVD then out the DVD into the TV. But if you want to record from video to DVD you will have to connect the two by scart lead.

Vcr dvd recorders


I assume you mean a Digital Reciever. If so, and the Digital box has two scarts, connect as follows:- Connect the VCR scart to the "Input" scart of the DVD, the output scart of this to the "VCR" scart on the Digi-box, and the "TV" scart of this to the T.V. You need BOTH switched on. On the T.V. select to view the scart that the box is on and on the DVD select to view "Scart Input". You will now be viewing the VHS. When you want to view the DVD just change the selection.

DVD recording.


Sounds like the DVDR is recording from the digi-box through the TV, so when the TV is switched of or into standby the signal is lost, causing the recorder to pause.

Assuming the digi-box has two scart sockets, connect as follows:

  • Scart 1 or TV scart of the digi-box to the TV.
  • Scart 2 or VCR/DVD scart of the digi-box to scart 1 of the DVDR3380.
The TV aerial should already be connected through the digi-box and DVDR3380 to the TV

To record from the digi-box, select AV1 / E1 / EXT1 on the DVDR3380
