SOURCE: record and watch different channels with freesat

I believe that the Humax can only output 1 channel and because it has no built in hdd and twin channel capabilty that is all you can record 1 channel (unlike sky +/sky HD) so that means also that unless you watch a different source (like the picture from your aerial (terrestial channels)) you are stuck with having to watch the channel you record

Logik recorder - error message - cannot schedule recording, there is already a timer at the same time on this channel. turned the box off at the wall & retuned. Any suggestions? Thank you. x


check programmed recordings you will have a clash possibly in time and date on another channel. If the dvd records two channels at once normally check if it has two channels already set up at the same time to record i the scheduled recordings.
you may have two different channel positions that are the same tv station and have set up two different channels to record the same show. and then you may be trying to record another different channel at the same time. check and delete extra channel schedule.

Another way to have this is as an example say programmed record at channel nine f0r show 1 at 7:30 to 8.35 day xyz and then you set up show 2 to record at channel nine say from 8:30 to 9.35.day xyz this will use two time frames during the overlap from 8:30 to 8:35 on day xyz and if you decide to record a third show you can't between the overlap time frame

HOW DO I RECORD FREESAT FROM TX-L42D25B TO DMR-EX773EB


link the output from freesat box to input on recorder, output from recorder to TV. if you have the correct leads. then the freesat will play through the recorder to TV even when recorder is off.
To record, set record from the input, av1, or what ever it's called on the recorder.timer recordings can be set the same way, or if the system allows, record from input detect.

SANDSTROM SHDFSAT 12 FREESAT, DIFFICULTY IN RECORDING.


Try undoing the satellite cable at the back of the box and put a kink in the centre wire so as to make better contact and re,screw back on., do this while the unit is turned off. We had this problem and this cured it.

I. Have a panasonic DVD recorder with Freesat HD tuners built in. After a power down at the house the recorder shows F5 108 on the display and the TV screen shows NoDignal. Does anyone have any suggestions...


I had the same problem. The display is simply showing that the unit is tuned to Freesat channel 108. I connected a SCART cable (rather than HDMI) and was able to get an output. I am planning to try a replacement HDMI cable as the video quality is obviously much better than with SCART. I hope this proves to be the problem rather than there being a bigger issue with the box itself. I hope this helps...

My vcr recorded my shows before i switched to a digital adapter now i cant get it to record anything ive tried everything


If the digital adaptor is connected to your TV, then the VCR will not get any signals to record. The VCR will also have to be converted, by adding another digital box, unless the first box has two digital tuners! You can connect another box if the VCR has two scart sockets, the second box connected to the other scart socket. To record after connection, leave the box on, set to the channel you want to record, and set the timer on the video. However when selecting the channel to record make certain that you select the scart socket with the box connected to it. Also make certain (if the VCR has it) PDC is set to OFF as it no longer works.
This way you can record shows while watching anothe channel.

How do i connect my samsung dvd recorder sh853m to my free sat box? Also is it possible to record a channel from free sat onto my samsung recorder while also watching a different free sat channel.


Hi,

If it's a Standard-Definition (SD) FreeSat box then a SCART cable would be the normal method of connection to your DVD recorder. This would connect to the SCART/EXT OUT socket on the back of the FreeSat box and the SCART/EXT IN on the DVD recorder. However, this depends on whether your FreeSat box has multiple SCART outputs and whether you are using a SCART cable to connect to the TV.

If there is no spare SCART output socket on the FreeSat box, then you need to use an alternative connection which is common to both devices, i.e. co-axial, and make sure you are connecting from an OUT socket on the FreeSat box to an IN socket on the DVD recorder.

If you have a FreeSat HD box, then you need to connect it to the DVD recorder using an HDMI cable or another cable type that will carry an HD signal.

You will only be able to record from a different Satellite channel if you have a Dual LNB with 2 feeds to the FreeSat box. The LNB is the receiver that attaches to the arm on the satellite dish. You can determine whether you have a Dual LNB as you will have 2 cables from the Dish to the FreeSat box. They may be joined as one cable, but there will be 2 F-plugs (threaded co-axial plug) on each end.

If you don't have 2 cables then you will only be able to record the same channel as you are watching. To record another channel, you need a FreeSat box that supports this feature and each channel needs also a separate feed from the dish.

Hope this helps. If you need any further assistance please post back with the brand model number of your FreeSat box and details of the connections you are using between the FreeSat box, the TV and the DVD recorder.

Regards,
BElectric

Can not stop scheduled TV recording to DVD by pessing the STOP button


This happens if you are watching the show live and recording at the same time.

Option 1
Try changing the channel. It will ask you if you want to stop recording and go to the other channel.

Option 2
Go to the list of recorded shows. You can delete the show you wanted to press stop during (it will still be recording). The show will be deleted and, therefore, recording will be stopped.

Grundig GUFSDTR500HD FreeSat PVR Problem


Hi There, I've never had this problem with my Sky box, it knows which programs are repeats. I suspect its a problem with the GUFSDTR500HD. I have had two of these boxes from Costco, and both have both been as buggy as hell. They have recorded random programmes, they have missed recording programs, they often crash (black screen), series link seems to get it's knickers in a twist, and the up and down directional buttons fail to work after coming out of the guide or menu screen. To top it off, I found that the remote control also interferres with my B&Q fireplace... cycling through the colours when I change channel. Both of these boxes have gone back to Costco and I will never touch another Harvard Group (previously Alba, including Bush/Goodmans/Grundig) box again. Back to sky HD for me!
