Connecting up Digital TV, DVD recorder and VCR

I have acquired a Panasonic TX028DTM1 digital TV with 2 Scart sockets, a Pansonic NV-HV61EB/EBL VCR with 2 Scart sockets, and a Panasonic DMR-ES10EB/EBL DVD recorder with 2 Scart sockets.

I cannot understand the manuals as to how to connect these three items up correctly. All i want to be able to do is:

1) watch digital TV channels;
2) record digital TV channels onto DVD (while watching analogue channels), and play DVDs;
3) record digital TV channels onto the VCR (while watching analogue channels), and play videos.

I do not need to record from the VCR to the DVD or vice-versa, and I know that I will not be able to record digital channels while watching other digital channels.

Any help you can give me would be appreciated. I am based in the UK.

    We were watching a DVD and switched the back to watch the dish and the tv is just fuzz. I was wondering if the tv needed to be on a certain channel.

Hi,

If I may offer an unconventional solution in addition to the initial post...
Connect all TV, VCR and DVD Recorder as to any way you want to connect them or as otacon have posted.

However, from your cable input from your provider, use a 3-way splitter. Connect the 3 outputs to the individual ANT INput of each of the 3 units (assuming all 3 have Cable/ANT INputs).

With this method all 3 can receive TV signals, both the VCR and DVD-R can record (even simultaneously) and you can switch watching one program on the TV, while recording another program in either the VCR or DVD-R or both.

Hi,

You need to hook the VCR and the DVD recorder to the scart connections on your TV.

VCR to one scart on the TV
DVD recorder to the other scart on your TV

Model NV-HV61EB/EBL. Why has it suddenly stopped recording in wide screen?


On the menu screen go to the "others" menu. Make certain it says on the "OSD" - wide!
As this is an older model with no digital tuner I assume you are recording from another source. So check that is outputting widescreen pictures to the VCR. If you have it connected via a scart lead - replace it with a high quality one. They are terrible for causing faults like that.

First of all you have to connect only one SCART cable ( one end to TV and the other to DMR ).When you are watching a program on TV select the DMR source ( input selector ) to SCART. Just press the record button with a blank DVD inside and it will record. Some Digital broadcast might have copy protect content which will prevent the recording from happening.

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

connect the aerial to the dvd/vcr/freeview combo, connect a scart from that to the tv, from the scart out socket.
you can then connect the sky from the scart marked tv to either the tv direct or to the combo if it has a second scart.
Note. a scart socket with an arrow going into a box is an input, coming out of the boe is an output and a double arrow is a two way scart.
if you use scart 2 on the tv to connect the combo, the combo will recieve a signal from the tv for recording.

Panasonic TV: TX-28DTX10,VCR nv-HV60 EB, DVD:SC-HT 520


EC means euro connector, I.E. Scart socket. For some reason there is no video signal coming out of the scart cable/out of the VCR or being displayed on the TV. Try plugging the scart plug into a different scart socket and see if that helps.

Dvd recorder


It is the signal that is digital not the TV, does your TV have a scart connection on the back? (a 2 rowed 21 pin female connection point).
That is the best way you can connect your DVD Rec. to it. The digital ready is just going to be DVB or something similar, which is just a form of digital freeview. Dont be conned by salesmen into buying a new TV with the DVD, as long as your TV was bought in the last decade or so it will have scart. If not you should just loop the RF out from the video into the DVD then out the DVD into the TV. But if you want to record from video to DVD you will have to connect the two by scart lead.
