Testimonial: "Thank you for your answer, maybe I didn't make it clear that my PC is an all-in-one which makes it more difficult to install a tv card, is it still possible to easily fit a tuner.?"

I have just bought a Digihome pvr320sd tv recorder with freeview, can i set it up as a tv recorder only without the freeview as i already have built in freeview on my tv.


When you set up the recorder Freeview stations will be stored. This means that you can record TV stations without watching them. So you can say watch BBC1 on your TV and record a program on Channel Four. You need the recorder set up with Freeview to recorder channels. Otherwise you would have to have your TV on and recorder set to record via the scart lead. Which would be not great quality and messy.
You should be able to loop the aerial lead so that both the TV and recorder can get the signals from your aerial, if that's what is bothering you.

I can't record digital tv on the dvd recorder coupled with a new philips tv with built in digital


You need a freeview box to connect to the scart INPUT of the DVD recorder. The Freeview box has to have a programmable timer built in. Connect your aerial to the freeview box, the aerial output then goes into the TV. You program the DVD to the times you want to record each program, but always the input is the SCart. You the program the Freeview box to change to the right program at the beginning of the program you want to record.

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

Hi, I have a vistron freeview television and have used it to watch virgin cable, as I don't have an aerial. my virgin is not working now and i want to use the tv to watch freeview programs. it is only...


If you want to watch Freeview, then you need an aerial, preferably a proper external (or loft mounted) one. Freeview signals are far weaker than traditional tv signals and so trying to receive them without an aerial or via a tv set-top aerial is usually doomed to failure. If you must use a set-top aerial then connect it directly to the tv (not via a video or any other device) and avoid using "amplified" or "booster" aerials unless you have no other choice.

I'm unfamiliar with Vistron, but usually channels are added by going into the menu and looking for "installation" or "set up". But if you have no aerial then you aren't going to get very far.

LG RH266 setup with freeview tv


Sorry to say no it wont not unless the Tv set manuel says it has a Duel Freeview feed , you have to get another freeview box for the recorder .
besides If you used the freview in the tv 1 , the tv would have to be on when you wanted to record ?. and 2 you couldnt watch another channel whilst recording another .. only 1 tuner ?. also you could only record the program you had on .at the time no timer facility .
People are still used to the Old system of VHs and the fact that all videos had tuners built in so you could watch and record .. It will come and indeed some more modern DVD recorder have freeview built in again sorry but thats the facts , and dont forget if you want the pay per view channels on free view your going to need a tuner with a pay card port ...

I want to add a DVD recorder into my TV set up


If I'm right On the DVD recorder there should be an aerial input and an output. Connect external aerial to the output then run a second from the output to the TV. Then use the HDMI to connect the DVD. This will then give you the option of recording one channel on the DVD whilst watching another thru the receiver thats built into the TV. You will then get the best poss picture when viewing DVD

I have a Philips DVD Rcorder How can I record a programme but watch another one at the same time. Has Freeview installed.


When you have programmed the DVD to record a channel, you can only watch another channel from your TV's channels, or a second freeview box.

The DVD recorder can only be set to one channel at a time, even though it has separate analogue & digital tuners.

Similar problem as you helped me solve before.


OK, I think I see the problem there.
The aerial lead from the DVDR to TV should be removed.
You should have it setup the same as the other Freeview - VCR - TV
Nutshell time:
Main aerial to Freeview input.
Loop aerial from freeview output to DVDR areial input (all this does is allow you to watch freeview, or standard both out of the DVDR)
So..
Scart from Freeview to DVDR input
Scart from DVDR output to TV
Set DVDR to AV input mode.
Set TV to AV (whatever number you need for that..you now won't get anything on screen unless you have the right input selected)

If you can now see the Freeview picture on the TV and change the channels with the Freeview remote then you should be set for recording.

Having the aerial and a scart lead both going to the TV is not needed.
