If you have two scart sockets on your tv,then connect a scart from av1 on the dvd into the tv,then connect a scart from the sky box into av2 on the dvd,your recording channel on the dvd will be av2.
If you only have on socket on the tv,then connect a scart from av1 on the dvd into the sky box,your recording channel will be av1,connected like this you may have to turn off the sky to watch dvd`s.
If your freeview has two scart sockets,connect a scart from the freeview(marked tv)into the tv,then one from the dvd into the other scart socket on the freeview,the main aerial should go into the freeview and a flylead out into the tv.Hope this helps
Hello. This is not a fault. The DVDR5350H's Hard Drive (called Time Shift Buffer) begins recording (for up to six hours) as soon as the unit it switched on and only clears the 'temporary' recordings when it is switched off or you switch to 'Cam' mode on the remote control.
Like Sky+ and Freeview+, the continuous recoding enables you to save, pause and rewind live TV (this could also apply to Freeview or any source that you may have connected to the EXT1 and EXT2 SCART sockets. In other words, if you are watching TV or anything connected to the 5350 while it is switched on you can keep it without even having pressed record in the first place (pressing OK on the remote control will show you how).
It is normal for all HDD recorders with a 'pause live TV' function to record whether asked to or not.
Products such as this will use an internal tuner to tune channels, this tuner will not detect your televisions freeview stations, to record from your television, connect scart out from tv to the scart in on the recorder, then select the scart A/V channel, use the television to select the channel you want to record, you will not be able to record 1 freeview channel and watch another freeview chanel as you only have 1 digital tuner (in the television) the recorder does not have freeview built in.. hope that helps
Connectivity problem. Without knowing your models and their available channels etc., it's very difficult to advise you exactly.
Broadly though ...... you need to get the input signal routing sorted.
Plug your aerial into the Freeview box. Make a connection from its RF out, (beside the aerial 'in' socket) to the aerial 'in' socket on the JVC. Run yet another co-axial connection from the JVC RF 'out' to the television.
Now - connect a scart lead between the JVC and the TV. Power off the freeview. Switch your TV to accept A/V - to show the JVC on screen. Read/go through the 'Set up' procedure on the JVC to scan in the available broadcast channels. When done - connect using a scart between the Freeview box and the JVC. This will be located on either the L1 or L2 channel selection.
IF as it seems you are using the freeview to watch all your programmes - and record in then you are simply watching and recording 'live' change the Freeview programme and the JVC gets that same one arriving in (and sending to the TV)
Unless you need to record Freeview only output - always record from the aerial input. You select via the television remote (and 'TV' selected) and the appropriate channel.
Complex to explain - hope it helps. The one thing to remember - is to make one set of changes at a time - check the result is okay, before moving to the next.
You can only record freeview channels through your box.
Assuming the digi-box has two scart sockets, connect as follows:
Scart 1 or TV scart of the digi-box to the TV.
Scart 2 or VCR/DVD scart of the digi-box to scart 1 of the DVDR3380.
The TV aerial should already be connected through the digi-box and DVDR3380 to the TV
To record from the digi-box, select AV1 / E1 / EXT1 on the DVDR3380
If you are doing timer recordings, you will also need to leave the freeview box on the channel you wish to record, or set the freeview box timer.
