This problem has happen before and i just pulled it out of the wall and turned it back on and it worked. I have tryed pressing every button and read the book and i cannot seemed to get it to tune in. Please help. Thank You

Re: troble tuning in

If your recorder is hooked up after the cable box, then it can probably only receive channel 3...the set-top box does the switching, and sends everything to the TV (and recorder) on Ch. 3

Cant retune through dvd player

Sounds like a few things going on here... Your indoor antenna for one is probably not making it easy for you as an outdoor antenna will work a whole lot better. This is why it open picks up half the channels and they are pixelating. Also you may have faulty rf leads. Replace these.

Unable to tune my liteon dvd recorder DD-A300 to a panasonic tv

I'm a bit confused about what you are trying to do? DVD recorders don't tune in to TV's anymore. They output the signal to the TV via a connector such as HDMI. To record the recorder will need an aerial feed etc, which can be split using a splitter between what feeds the TV and Recorder.

Make sure the TUNING BAND is set appropriately (TV or CATV). • TV : If you are using a standard antenna to receive channels. •CATV : If you are using basic cable to receive channels.

You will need to connect an antenna and program channels to internal tuner if you want to use the built in tuner.

It is not clear if your problem is with the HDTV or with the DVD recorder.

Both have an internal tuner, and both can tune channels , L2 and L3 are the input lines used when you connect for example to an external receiver.

I have purchased a Samsung V 375 - it says it automatically tunes in and installs itself - trouble is I can't get the TV to display the signal by manually searching through mhz channels - I have the rellow...

Forget the mHz channels for now.

On the TV, or TV remote, look for a button that is labeled "Input" or "Video" or something like that. Depending on your TV, there might be a few choices that present themselves once you do this, such as "Video 1", "Video 2", etc. Keep going until you find what looks like the DVD player signal.

If there is no button as described, then look for another button on the TV remote or on the TV labeled "Menu". Then scroll thru the menu until you find "Input". Choices here might be "Cable", "Antenna", "Video". You'll want to choose "Video", or "A/V", or "Line".

Let me know...

I cannot get my DVR4300 to go in to TV channel change mode while recording a program

Why not simply record a channel tuned into the vcr and use your tv remote to watch a channel tuned into your tv? that is how it is normaly done... don't forget a vcr/pvr/dvd recorder has it's own channels just like a tv does... just no screen of it's own the tv has of course it's own channels and in fact does not even need to be switched on in order for your recorder to record a program neither does the recorder need to be on to use your tv
