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.

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.

My samsung dvd hr753 will not tune to stations? Our region recently switched to digital so we no longer have analogue signals. Could this be the problem?


Yes this is your problem that you no longer receive an Analogue Signal.

This unit doesn't contain a Digital Freeview Tuner so you will need to purchase some sort of External Digital Freeview Box to connect to this unit to enable you to continue recording on it.

Have a new digital TV, can only record the 5 terrestial channels, how do I tune in to the other digital channels, i.e. BBC3, E4 etc.


It's not clear what you mean! So one of these answer might solve it. If you are talking VCR recording it must either have a freeview tuner or have a freeview box connected to it via a scart. Otherwise it will only record the five terrestial.
Digital TV -you must have a good aerial otherwise you will not pick up all the stations. If it has a hard disc drive the same will apply.
If the terrestial stations have any grain or the picture is not as clear as a bell on all, then your aerial will not be good enough. The type of aerial should be for freeview. See image below also you need to have CT100 cable (the stuff used for satellite) not the old brown co-axial cable (see below).

Sharp TU-TV322H failing to make planned recordings


I had this problem aswell! I tried everything but ended up phoneing the help line, when they asked for what frequancies they found out i was picking up different ones form two different stations. I took the ariel out of the back on the freeview box and run a scan for channels (of course it came up with none as the ariel is unpluged but it overwirites and clears the incorect frequencies). Then plug the areil back into the freeview box and run a scan for channels. After doing this i picked up the correct frequencines form the correct station and my recordings actually recorded! If you phone the help line (08444159159) they will tell you what frequencies you should be picking up. I hope this qorkes for you!

Is it possible to tune the channels of an integrated freeview digital box within a tv to a recordable dvd player


No!

However, i see what your trying to accomplish - being able to record the freeview pictures you recieve form the Sony inbuilt tuner onto the recorder.. whilst being able to watch a different channel..?!

Well, you cant. If your Recorder has an inbuilt digital tuner then of course this would solve your issues, whereas if it is purely an analouge recorder and your in an area that has switched over then youll need some new hardware unfortunatly,.

Phone Sony on 0845 6000124 local rate number for more advise

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
