What is feeding the video/audio signals to your Onkyo receiver? Are you getting your input from a satellite receiver or cable set top box? Or are you just using you TV with a coax feed from a terrestrial aerial?
You need a receiver that will decode Dolby 5.1 or 7.1 if you want to use surround sound. If you are using your TV as the reveiver and it has that capability then the problem is probably the type of HDMI cable you are using. You need a cable that has 'audio return' - in other words it will feed the digital audio (from your TV receiver) to the Onkyo box. Some HDMI cables do not include 'audio return'. Check what type of HDMI cable you have.
If you respond with answers to these questions I will be glad to provide more assistance.
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.
first of all you would need to have a Sky HD set top box.
The cables coming into the wall.. you said one was the terrestrial aerial and the other was a sky cable. In order for you to benefit from Sky HD you would need twin cable or two single cable running from your sky dish.(allows you to record a program and watch another etc.
two feeds coming from your dish,
there is only one place these can go as they are screw on ie F connectors. so they would screw onto input 1 and 2 on the back of the Hd box.
Run a HDMI cable from the back of the sky box from the HDMI port to one of the HDMI ports on the back of your telly. last but not least you would need to get a power cable (kettle plug) to power the thing.
In regards to your terrestrial aerial you can plug this directly into your telly or via your aerial in port on the back of the skyHD box. then you would have to run an aerial cable from the RF out 1 or 2 to the back of your telly this would allow you to record two things on your Sky HD box then switch to your built in freeview that your telly has.
First off, scart has an auto detect feature across pin 8, HDMI does not. If you have turn your TV to the HDMI channel, and at some point turn off the HD source device you are going to get a blank screen, you have to manually turn your TV back. In regard to whilst you are recording it sounds like you may have tuned in channels on your DVD but not your TV. Do you have an RF aerial lead connected from the DVD output to the RF on you telly? Do you have a sky/cable box connected to your TV via scart? Does the DVD have DVB (digital video broadcast) if so and you have none of the above that is the problem, any tuner running off a single RF lead can only record/play 1 channel at a time. If you have no RF lead going to the TV, then the TV cannot show any terrestrial channels.
