Question about Televison & Video
Have a Sonawa (Chinese brand) 51 cm flat screen TV that has been used , along with set top box and VCR , to play kids play station. Now they've left it a mess and I can't remember how to patch it back the way it used to be so I can watch tv via the set top box. I managed to get the dvd playing on the tv monitor last night but that's all. Can't find the tv manual either so can't remember how it all links up.
Ok here goes.
1) Take airial lead from the wall socket in to antenna in on freeview box.
2) connect short usually black airial type lead in to antenna out socket on freeview. plug the other end of this lead in to aerial in on vcr.
3) connect the other end of this aerial type lead to airial plug on the back of tv.
4) now if you have 2 or more scart sockets on the back of tv set plug in the scarts in this order.
Freeview box scart with tv on it connect to scart 1 on tv set.
Freeview box vcr scart connect to vcr in scart socket on vcr.
Vcr scart marked tv plug scart from here to scart 2 on tv
If you have 3 scart sockets on tv you can connect dvd using scart to scart socket 3 on tv.
If Tv has only 1 scart the aerial leads will stay the same as I have stated,
Freeview must go to scart socket on tv set.
leave second scart from freeview to vcr plugged in so you can record freeview by putting vcr to line 1 or AV 1.
you will need to put tv on channel (0) & tune this channel to the video play a tape that you recognise then go to tv tuning & tune tv untill you see video playing then store this on channel (0).
DO NOT USE AUTO TUNING IT WILL PUT CHANNELS IN THE WRONG ORDER JUST USE MANUAL TUNING.
Now to view Dvd you will either need to purchase A scart switch box. Or have keep unpluging freeview scart from tv so you can plug in dvd .
If your tv has red yellow white phono sockets you can plug dvd in to these, you may need to purchase phono leads.
Hope this helps.
