The most common way is to use a scart lead, providing the TV has a scart socket and the VCR has too. Use a fully wired lead. If the TV has only one scart socket and you have another device connected to it, such as a DVD player, then get a scart switching box. This way you can have several devices run off the one scart socket.

My VCR/DVD, freeview box and non digital tv will show prerecorded video and DVD but will not record (or if it has it will not display). Could it be that the set up is not wired up correctly? The freeview...


Unless the Freeview box has two tuners then your going to have problems anyway when you want to record something and watch the non-digital TV at the same time. The solution is simple get another Freeview box (they are around £10 at the moment on E-Buyer.Com) get a box like this:


grubhead_17.jpg Available on Amazon (Scart switching box). This plugs into the TV or you can connect via one of the freeview boxes. Whatever works best.
The VCR has the other Freeview box connected to the second scart. (select AV2 when setting the channel to record and set the box to the channel you want to record) the first scart from the VCR plugs into the above box. When you want to watch press the switch.
By the way if the VCR has PDC on it set it to off, as it no longer works with digital.

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

I have a Digilogic VCR/DVD player model DVDVCR1 connected to a tv with freeview already installed. But I am unable to record digital programmes from the TV.Will I have to bin my VCR/DVD player and replace...


I'm assuming you mean the recorder doesn't have freeview built in?
Then all you have to do is to get a cheap freeview box and just have it connected to your vcr via a scart lead. If the VCR has two scarts connect the one to the tv for playback and use the other for the box. If it has only one scart, then get a switcher box, there's some good ones on Amazon, that will allow you to select the different sockets and record from.

TV, freeview, DVD and video set up.


Hi.
Modern day freeview boxes rarely have A modulator in them so you can not tune it to a channel on your tv it must be connected using scart lead.
Most freeview boxes have 2 scart sockets one for VCR & one for TV plug your scart leads in to the scart sockets of freeview they will be labled TV & VCR.
The scart labled TV goes to scart socket on the TV labled AV1 or 1
The scart labled VCR goes to scart socket on VCR labled AV or IN
Now the aerial leads From wall socket to ANT in on freeview.
Then from RF out on freeview to ANT in on VCR.
Then RF out on VCR to ANT in on TV doing this will enable you to put TV on 9 to watch tapes.

The final scart will be from DVD to TV socket marked AV2

You will need to put TV on AV channel to view freeview.
To record freeview you must put VCR to EITHER line.av,aux. it will be one of those different manufacturers call them by varying names.
I have done this banking on your tv having 2 scart sockets if it only has 1 let me know & I will tell you how to wire it differently.
Please state make & model of TV set & VCR & what connections are available EG scart, Phono, Svhs etc.

Can't re patch tv with set top box to watch tv


Hi.

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.
