Hi, how is the free view running through the video?

Option 1(this is the most complicated way if you are using scart lead or the three color leads then skip to option 2)

if you using the normal arial socket ie arial from roof goes into free view then from free view into vid then vid into tell then what you need to do is make sure on the free view that you have a menu screen on the screen either tv guide or something that will stay on their.
Now put the video on a channel you dont use say 6 then you need to use the video remote and then enter the setup mode and then start the scanning process to look for the signal keep going until you get the menu screen that you opened on the free view then store this as channel 6 on the video.
Now when you want to record from the free view you put the video on channel 6 and put the free view on the channel you want to record.

Option 2:
If you free view box is using scart leads and has two scart lead outputs on the back, ie one for the telly and the other for the video, if you have it like this then plug telly scart into telly and video scart into video.

Now in the back of the video you should have scart lead coming from the free view, and maybe one coming from the video into the telly
If this is the case then all you need to do to record off free view is switch the video on the when you choose what channel you want to record instead of choosing 1 to 5 for normal channels you need to select av scroll down the channels past zero if you have not got av button once av is selected you should then see the free view channels try by pressing guide on the free view and put the video on av this should then let you see the free view via video if not dont worry press record for 5 min then rewind and press play it should now play back the free view you was just watching.

Option 3 now if you have it set up any other way just let me know how then i can assist you further ok.

If you have any problems following my instructions then just post me a message back and ill be glad to assist you further ok.

Many thanks for using fixya.com

I hava psvr71 vcr and a new Sharp Asquos tv and I cannot get the vcr to record. It will play back but not record.


The VCR doesn't have a digital tuner. It has an analogue tuner. So it won't pick up the digital TV transmissions. You need a Freeview box connected to the house aerial system, and then connected to the VCR by a SCART lead. Put the VCR on one of the AV channels so it "sees" the signal from the Freeview box as a predicament for its own tuner.

Some older TVs had a video out function. This no longer applies to new TVs.

We have a Funai analogue tv and a Sony analogue DVD recorder, we need to know how to connect them using 1 or 2 digiboxes.


If your TV and DVD recorder have two SCART sockets each, then you can connect the two boxes to the second scart of each device. When recording the channel selected will have to be AV2. If either of them hasn't a second scart socket. Then I suggest you get one of these scart switching boxes from places such as Amazon.

The buttons on the unit will allow you to record, whilst still watching the TV. 12_17_2012_5_01_21_pm.jpg

Have just retuned digital terrestrial receiver Matsui DTR -2 for our area, how do I now record tv programmes with my Bush VCR925NSILXI? On analogue TV the recording channel was Channel 9


Recording, amazingly, has nothing to do with your TV, it only monitors the playback or recording input of your VCR or DVD recorder - the Channel 9 you mention.
They have their own tuners, indeed DVD recorders have Freeview (or DTV) tuners so no need for a separate box at all - given that your TV has a DTV tuner too and if a recent flat screen type it will.
If you can afford it, this is a good time to drop VHS and get a DVD recorder. You'll find plenty on Amazon Electronics for a start.
Your Bush VCR will be redundant the moment the analogue service goes off, they haven't made a VHS VCR with a DTV tuner.
Depending on your area this is a few months off, even for the last area to change over anyway, here in London there's just shy of nine months left.

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.

If the video does not have a freeview tuner it will not be able to record. There is a solution! All you need to do is get a freeview box, Argos have an Alba model for around £18 at the moment, Connect it via a scart to your video, if it has to scart connectors use the second one, often marked AV2. Then when you want to record, turn the box on to the channel you want to record, set the record timer, but change the channel to AV2 for the recording. That should then record the station, while you watch the other channels. If the VCR has only one scart, you can get a scart switching box, as shown below, from places such as Amazon.

I have an Alba 32880hdf freeview tv. I cannot record freeview programmes to my panasonic NV-FJ 780 vcr which has 2 scart sockets. I have no problem recording the teresteral channels. Can you help pls


Hi Victor,

You can't record the Freeview channels from the TV. It doesn't work that way. The reason you can still record terrestrial channels is because the VCR is still connected to your roof aerial with a co-axial cable and the VCR has its own built-in analogue tuner for recording terrestrial TV programmes.

To record the digital Freeview channels, you will either need to connect a separate Freeview set-top box to the VCR, or buy a VCR which has a built-in digital (DVB-T) tuner.

The VCR does not record programmes from the TV. It needs to be connected directly to the signal source, i.e. your aerial.

If you need any further assistance, please let me know.

Regards,
BElectric

If you were to log on to the manufacturer's web site, I think you will be pleasantly surprised as usually one is able to download, by model number, Customer Instruction Manuals, and a list of Dealers for spare parts, as required.

Just Google the manufacturer's name and follow the links. Make certain you are directed to the manufacturer's web site as some search engines direct you to other sites and they charge for the information that is normally free of charge.

I hope this helps.
