Connect it to the box with a SCART lead, select A1 or A2 with the channel up / down buttons and away you go
(select A3 if you use the phono connectors under the front panel)

I cant get dvd recorder to record ext 2


Firstly, is the scart lead plugged in fully? Does it get the sound or nothing?
Is the recorder sitched to the correct input? It may be trying to pull a signal from the TV which may not be passing through the picture from the sky box.
Also, is the scart lead fully wired? Some only work one way so try spinning it round between the recorder and sky box.

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?


Hi,

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.

Regards,
BElectric

I HAVE A DTV WITH BUILT IN FREEVIEW AND A DVD RECORDER WITH BUILT IN FREE VIEW, BUT CANT SEEM TO GET A GOOD PICTURE TO RECORD OFF THE TV. ANY IDEAS?


You could try an antenna booster but if the picture is still snowy you wont get much of an improvement. Also make sure that you have a HQ yagi array on top of your house, direction and height location can make a huge difference.

I suggest ditching the freeview and going for SKY or Virgin media

I would use the Sky box manuals recommendations for connection as this usually gives the best performance especially if you wish to record from Sky to the DVD recorder.

How to connect to sky


The Sky Box should have 2 scarts on the back, one to go into your TV and one to go else where. One of them goes into the back of your DVD recorder.

You can then source and record through the DVD.

Can't tune stations from freeview box to DVDR3380/5


You can only record freeview channels through your box.


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
If you are doing timer recordings, you will also need to leave the freeview box on the channel you wish to record, or set the freeview box timer.
