    Thank you very much for replying Ian. Yes going from what you have said I have connected all the leads up correctly. I have searched for channels and I only recieve BBC 1, BBC2, ITV1, BBC4 and Channel 5. I have tried to modify channel 6 to the freeview channel however the dvd does not find anything. I have a setting which allows me to change the AV-2 to either(Decoder, RGB or CVBS) do you know whether these make a difference? Thanks for your time. Mark

You say you`ve plugged the outside aerial lead directly into the DVD recorder aerial input socket, you connected an aerial link lead from the aerial output socket on the DVD recorder and you`ve got a Scart lead from the TV output socket on the rear of the DVD recorder into the AV1 socket on the TV. I`m saying all this because in the past, I`ve had customers say this to me only to find when I call round that they`ve plugged the aerial into phono sockets instead of the earial input socket. The aerial lead will fit physically but not electrically. Have you got a good picture on your TV with the DVD recorder switched to standby?? If yes, Does it play a DVD perfectly through the TV?? If yes, then everything is connected up correctly, When you press the virgin menu button to your DVD, it should show setup/install?? When you do get to the free-view or channel setup/install menu, and you tell it to search for new channels, does it scan?? Does a bar or do the numbers rise and the % number rise as it finds new channels?? If they do and everything is connected and working as I described earlier but still no channels are found, Try unplugging from the mains and reboot your DVD recorder, then repeat the whole menu install procedure sequence again. Other than that, there`s nothing else you can do, Basically, you`ve got a faulty machine where it requires an engineers eye I`m afraid. Ian

Problem with digital tv


The Antenna may be in a weak signal area heres a quick cheap fix
Get a Freeview Box and connect it via SCART LEAD to your tv, if the Box picks up a good signal then your tuner may be very weak..
You may want to try a BOOSTER to the TV first, and if that fails go with an external freeview. My neighbor has a 42 and the freeview box WITHOUT an antenna attached resolves all the channels..so give that a try. I have a goodmans too with a slow tuner and I have to retune it sometimes even though it gets a good signal from the antenna. I will be getting an external tuner freeveiw box.

DVDRHD400. No volume on the TV channels. Will play sound on DVDs but no volume on anything recorded from telly. I have adjusted volume, on tv, cable, dvd but no luck. HELP me too please !!!!!


hello ,i fixed this problem on a dvdrhd400 i picked up off ebay with same fault. played dvds perfect but no audio coming in from freeview or scart (this is not a firmware update problem). the problem seems to be the capcitors on the tuner board (long retangle board at back which scart connects to) theres a 100uf 10v-16v capcitor (sorry cant remember if voltage was 10v or 16v as i fixed this a month ago and system as been working perfect and dont want to take it all apart again) its in the middle of the board off to one side with afew other 1uf caps around it. replaced it with a 100uf 25v cap (higher voltage is fine as long as same value) Capcitance meter was reading cap as bad. bingo worked perfect ever since.

Wharfedale DVDR24HD250 DVD Recorder When set up will not find any programmes on Automatic Programme Search (APS)


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

If your cable is connected with just a scart lead (in AV2) you just put the recorder onto the AV2 channel. You need to connect the cable decoder to the recorder via an arial lead to be able to tune it in but there is no need just use the AV channel.

This tv has inbuilt freeview, how do i use a dvd recorder to record off it?


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

Wharfedale DVDRHD400 Set up Issue


Hi I had the same problem. The answer is to use a scart lead on the freeview box and connect it to the input/output scart on the DVD. Then connect a scart lead from the TV out on the DVD to the TV. You then press Video source on the DVD remote until 'scart' is displayed to pick the freeview channels. Hope that helps
