SOURCE: Reception upgrade or what ?

Older sets are fitted with analogue tuners which can't handle digital signals. The only way round the problem is if the TV can be used as a monitor via a scart input. The external freesat or digital set top box contain digital tuners which can then display the required digital information on the TV. These external units have scart output sockets at the back, specifically for this purpose. So it's a scart lead from your external digital device to the scart input socket at the back of the TV. The remote control for your external box is then used to select the required programmes

SOURCE: My analogue tv doesn't do anything when connected

Have you checked that your aerial is connected into the set top box & not into the TV? The aerial signal has to go into the set top box & then the box will be connected via your Scart cable into the TV. On the TV you will need to select the Scart input ie. AV1. This should give you the set top box incoming signal, you might then have to tune in the box by following the on screen instructions. Hope this help.

The purpose of that freesat to bo able to record/playbak 2 channels at the same time. But you still need a satellite dish pointing to the satellite in the sky so it can work.

SOURCE: Samsung LE32N7 - Analogue channels ok - Freeview

This is very common to a number of Samsung models built at the same time as yours and using the same in-built Freeview receiver.

There is no fix, the built in receiver is simply incompatible with the most recent updates to Freeview (as happened to many external boxes) and cannot be modified, the only puzzle is the length of time that your receiver kept going for. If your tv has a warranty still then you may wish to see if the fault is covered.

Without a warranty, all you can do is continue to use an external Freeview receiver. They're usually better quality anyway, and are easy to replace when they go wrong or become out of date.

as far as I am aware, you need a standard analogue aerial to receive Freeview, not a dish. The aerial plugs into set top box, which is connected to tv by scart. Freeview is different from Freesat

Ive got a freesat dish and reciever but we get 90% signal but no quality any suggestions


Your on the wrong satellite, If your on any satellite youll get a high Signal but you wont get a high quality until your on the specific satellite. Astra 2A is for freesat. If you can bring that up on the menu then just keep moving the dish until the quality goes above 50% and that will suffice for a decent picture.

Your lack of channels is from a specific group and is usually caused by poor signal from your aerial. A new larger aerial may solve that.
Freesat is OK if you have a dish installed.

How do i connect my samsung dvd recorder sh853m to my free sat box? Also is it possible to record a channel from free sat onto my samsung recorder while also watching a different free sat channel.


Hi,

If it's a Standard-Definition (SD) FreeSat box then a SCART cable would be the normal method of connection to your DVD recorder. This would connect to the SCART/EXT OUT socket on the back of the FreeSat box and the SCART/EXT IN on the DVD recorder. However, this depends on whether your FreeSat box has multiple SCART outputs and whether you are using a SCART cable to connect to the TV.

If there is no spare SCART output socket on the FreeSat box, then you need to use an alternative connection which is common to both devices, i.e. co-axial, and make sure you are connecting from an OUT socket on the FreeSat box to an IN socket on the DVD recorder.

If you have a FreeSat HD box, then you need to connect it to the DVD recorder using an HDMI cable or another cable type that will carry an HD signal.

You will only be able to record from a different Satellite channel if you have a Dual LNB with 2 feeds to the FreeSat box. The LNB is the receiver that attaches to the arm on the satellite dish. You can determine whether you have a Dual LNB as you will have 2 cables from the Dish to the FreeSat box. They may be joined as one cable, but there will be 2 F-plugs (threaded co-axial plug) on each end.

If you don't have 2 cables then you will only be able to record the same channel as you are watching. To record another channel, you need a FreeSat box that supports this feature and each channel needs also a separate feed from the dish.

Hope this helps. If you need any further assistance please post back with the brand model number of your FreeSat box and details of the connections you are using between the FreeSat box, the TV and the DVD recorder.

Regards,
BElectric

Yes you can split the signal out from the back of the Freesat/HD (not the TV)to the second TV.
Look what outputs are on the Freesat box - the RF (standard cable) output should go to the 2nd TV (TV set to CH3) and the a/v cables,HDMI or DVI cable should go to the new TV - Note:To receive HD the output from the Freesat should be either HDMI,DVI or Composite output (RGB video jacks) with red White for audio. If you have HDMI this is best - it also provides audio.
