Phillips #3390 DVD Recorder-does it have a tuner?

I'm looking to purchase a second DVD recorder for the LCD TV in my bedroom. I currently don't have cable or converter box, I just pick up a digital antenna signal, and want to know if the Phillips # 3390 will work for recording TV programs? I guess I'm trying to find out if it has a built-in tuner? I found an inexpensive, new-in-box model on Craigslist.

I purchased a MDR513h/f7 hdd & dvd Player/recorder for my cable TV. I can not watch one channel while recording another. Comast said I must have a dual turner and that is what I purchased (I think)....


This model has only one tuner, I'm afraid. You can only watch one channel at a time, unless you split the cable signal going into it. One side goes to the recorder, the other to the TV. Then you use the single tuner in the recorder to record and the TV's tuner to watch the other channel.

The dvd recorder uses the video signal to detect, thus it will not detect the audio as a signal. I believe there are "boxes" you link in somehow to "fool" the dvd into thinking it's recieving a video signal, but I don't know where to get them.

I would like to be able to record TV shows WITH subtitles/closed captions. I have a Hisense HD LCD TV with built in HD tuner. I would like to be able to record onto a DVD/VCR. I'm getting conflicting...


Hey, I have a deaf brother with this issue. What I done was route the AV output of the TV to the AV input of the recorder. Set your recorders source to AV1 (or whichever you use) and set your TV to the program you want to record, also turn subtitles on. Because you wont have your TV set to the input your DVD recorder is on, you won't be able to see the DVD recorders output, but thats fine. Just press record on the unit - you have to leave the TV on the channel it's recording. Now you should be recording TV with subtitles with no problem :D

DMR E55 timer recording won't work


Your recorder doesn´t have a digital tuner, let alone an HD one. You can record digital programs via your TV tuner if it gives a signal out. Connect your TV to AV1 or AV2 on your recorder and program the recorder to record from the one you chose. You must program the TV separately (I don´t know if this is possible on your TV) or leave it on and on the channel you want to record.

Dvd with analog tuner work when swithc to all digital signal next


This unit will only work if you have a digital cable connection box. If you get cable service you will have this service if not you will need to buy a digital to analog converter box. This can be purchased at any large electronics store, like Fry's or the Micro Center. You can also purchase them on line. Use you favorite search engine and plug in Television digital to analog converter boxes. The search engine will bring up places to purchase them. I hope this information help you with your problem.

Channel selection


L1 and L2 are just line inputs. This unit does not have a tuner so there are no channels to select.
It requires you to be connected to a TV broadcast via a cable or satellite tuner box... and then would only record what ever channel you were viewing. The DVD is a player only.
It sounds like you should have purchased a DVD Recorder or a DVD/VCR Recorder. The players normally do not have a tuner. A Recorder should have an built-in digital tuner. Some also have the old NTSC tuner and may also have a QAM tuner.

Dvd recorder


Salutations mommakathy,

I can only assume there was a misunderstanding of what your daughter was looking for. Looking more closely at your question I have to ask are you looking for a Digital Video Recorder that also is a DVD Recorder? While we do sell DVD Recorders and Digital Video Recorders, we no longer sell one that will do both.

As to the second part of your question you should be able to find Panasonic model# DMR-EZ28K at your local BestBuy™ store. The DMR-EZ28K allows you to record from an built-in ATSC Digital TV tuner.

I hope this helps.
Jon
