I hava psvr71 vcr and a new Sharp Asquos tv and I cannot get the vcr to record. It will play back but not record.


The VCR doesn't have a digital tuner. It has an analogue tuner. So it won't pick up the digital TV transmissions. You need a Freeview box connected to the house aerial system, and then connected to the VCR by a SCART lead. Put the VCR on one of the AV channels so it "sees" the signal from the Freeview box as a predicament for its own tuner.

Some older TVs had a video out function. This no longer applies to new TVs.

The picture doesn't hold. The picture shows just snow on the tv.


VCRs are analogue. So their tuners won't pick up digital TV signals, and their output from the aerial socket is analogue too. You'll have to make sure your TV is on the analogue TV tuner and then tuned to the VCR output channel if you want to use the aerial connection for viewing. It's probably a lot simpler though to use the VCR's AV output to the TV.

If you connect a TV receiver (Aerial/cable/satellite) to the AV input on the VCR, then switch the VCR to that AV input, you will see and be able to record programmes.

I have a Panasonic TV with inbuilt Freeview TH-42PX70BA. I also have a Hitachi VCR VT-FX980E which I use to record analogue channels. Now that the analogue signal is disappearing I would like to record...


The simple solution is to connect your VCR to a Freeview set top box, which you can pick up for around £10. Simply connect the box via a scart lead. If the Video has two scrat sockets use the other for the box. For recording set the VCR up the same way but instead of selecting channel one or two etc set it as AV2 if that is the place the box is connected. When recording leave the box on the station you want to record and the VCR will record it. Don't forget to allow a few minutes either way for the start and stop times. Also if the VCR has PDC switch it to off.
You should be able to record this way whilst watching another channel on the TV. Some Freeview set top box's have timers on them so if you are out and want to record two shows on different channels you can.
If you have only one scart then a scart switching unit such as this below will solve that problem. Found on Amazon.

If the video does not have a freeview tuner it will not be able to record. There is a solution! All you need to do is get a freeview box, Argos have an Alba model for around £18 at the moment, Connect it via a scart to your video, if it has to scart connectors use the second one, often marked AV2. Then when you want to record, turn the box on to the channel you want to record, set the record timer, but change the channel to AV2 for the recording. That should then record the station, while you watch the other channels. If the VCR has only one scart, you can get a scart switching box, as shown below, from places such as Amazon.

I have an Alba 32880hdf freeview tv. I cannot record freeview programmes to my panasonic NV-FJ 780 vcr which has 2 scart sockets. I have no problem recording the teresteral channels. Can you help pls


Hi Victor,

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.

Regards,
BElectric

Digital tv -analogue vcr records and time records and plays back only with the picture on. It will not record with picture on standby


Of course it won't record if the TV is in standby as there is no signal. If you wish to record TV programmes without having the TV switched on, you need a freeview or freesat box for your Video Recorder.
Hope this helps.

The Wharfdale Machine that has Freeview has an F on the end ie vdrhd400f. It may be yours is an analogue version. Always possible that you can use the TV as an output via a scart to record what you are watchin
