Don't know if this was the problem, but I was trying to go through the tuner for the saterllite stations. I tried going through the VCR/DVD unit and now all the channels are tuned. Only problem now is how do I tape a channel through the VCR? I can't seem to tune in the VCR.

if your tv is already receiving digital stations the it will receive 7 flix
If you are already using a set top box it will get 7 flix and all the channel 9 station as well
all you have to do is use the remote to get the on screen menu up, (press the menu button) --navigate around until you get the auto tune in channel selection auto or manual---select auto tune and let it go and all the extra channels will be programmed in
It is not possible to tune in 7two, channel 11, GO! or similar digital channels with this model DVD recorder, as its tuner would most likely be analogue only. You would either need to upgrade to a model with a digital tuner built in, or purchase an external set top box, capable of SD and HD digital reception, and connect its AV outputs to the respective inputs of the recorder, in order to record the channels you want.
However, being in OZ, those digital channels are available as free to air - all you would need is the appropriate receiver to enjoy them. I recommend a set top box which offers HD as well as SD.
I find that with my HDB849 I have to be very carefull with the positioning of the aerial/rabbit ears to get all the channels to (ABC, 7, 9, 10, SBS and their sub cahnnels) to recieve them at all. Also once you get all the channels it is prone to digitization or pixilation at times due to bad weather/very overcast days.
Try the Teac.com.au for a firmware upgrade as this also solved not being able to view avis & images, listen to mp3's etc.
Overall the majority of reviews say the HDB849 is to be avoided.
Once set up correctly through trial and error and an absolute shitload of patience and re-tuning it seems to operate fine. Just pray you do not get a power outage or you have to start all over again.
Last point, try the teac 1300 number in Australia (or relevent country) and harras them for info whilst trying to stay calm and nice with the unlucky "tech support" person
The tuner in this DVD recorder is a DVB-T SD tuner; it will also tune in the analog signals if you have any analog stations in the area. You will need a separate HD tuner (set-top box) to provide the HD content. I'm not sure if you can record from a set-top box with the recorder set to Line In or Input. The only input jacks are the A/V (composite) jacks.
The model number you posted is for a center channel speaker which has no controls, and not knowing the exact model number it's difficult to be specific.
Some Kenwood KDC models allow you to select one of 3 "tuning modes", 1) AUTO1 - Automatic search for stations; 2) AUTO2 - Search Preset stations; 3) MANUAL - Normal manual tuning control. If your Kenwood is one of these models, you need to set the tuning mode to MANUAL. For Kenwood Excelon HD receivers, direct access tuning is done by using the included remote. 1) Press DIRECT button on the remote; 2) Press number buttons to enter desired channel number; 3) Press DIRECT button again to exit direct tuning.
Hi! I believe you have some concern on how to get good picture on your hd tv. I will be more than glad to assist u.. on your teac hdb841- there is a port connection - ant in, you have to connect the ant cable from your off the air tv antena to the ANT IN of the Teac HDB841. then on the back of your Teac HDB841, you have several output connection there like component, coax, s-video, rca and hdmi. since u have the hdtv u need to use the hdmi or the component cable whiich is the red blue and green then access the menu of the teac hdb841 and do a scan for the local channels.. ur tv should tune in to hdmi if u use hdmi cable or component if u use the red blue and green.. i hope this will fix the problem..
I have just bought a TEAC HBD841 which was on discounted sale at a local Electrical Store Besides not being able to figure out how to connect the device to my elderly TV because the inadequate instruction booklet that is written in a language an Electrical Engineer would have difficulty understanding - does not explain which plugs go where, (try plugging a three plug lead into a 2 plug TV) but since then I have found out that the HDB841 has been withdrawn from sale and is no longer available. No wonder it was cheap! I suggest you get rid of it - quick
