Connecting tv, set top box, video etc

I have a Beko IDTV digital TV, a Toshiba V-211 UK video, a Technika AESTBS7 digital terrestrial receiver, a Digilocic DVRW2 dvd recorder and a manual scart switcher, with lots of gold scart leads and aerial connectors.
All I need now is someone to tell me how to connect it all up so that I can record extra terrestial channels on either video or dvd and still watch any programme I like on the tv.
Please help if you can

Digital convertor


Do you mean the Samsung DVD-VR500E? The following steps should work for most DVD recorders. (In the US, you use the AV Input with an RCA composite cable or the RF input.)

If you get a digital-to-analog converter (set top box) and your current antenna provides the OTA signal at your location, then yes you will be able to record a digital program. Connect the set top box to AV1 or AV2 (the SCART inputs). Then use the Input Sel (under PR mode) to select the input. (Alternatively, connect an RF modulator to get the signal to the coax input from the STB to the recorder.) See page 75 of the manual for the DVD-500E for details on setting the input for recording: http://downloadcenter.samsung.com/content/UM/200410/20041023105238671_00500A-VR300E-XEU-E-B.pdf . Some DVD recorders only record on the TV (coax) input. In that case, you will need a set-top box with a RF out or an RF modulator but you can still record the digital program.

A dual tuner set top box will let you watch one program and record another if both the TV and the recorder are connected to the STB. If your TV has a digital tuner, you can split the incoming antenna signal to go to the set-top box and the TV. (Then you can also watch one program and record another.)

I prefer to use a switch instead of a splitter to reduce the signal loss. However, this forces me to record the program that I am currently watching. Since most of my recording is for time-shifting, this doesn't cause me a problem.

This site, http://www.ricability-digitaltv.org.uk/pages/products/stbs/stb_search_results.asp , has a list of reviews of set-top boxes for the UK. I know in the US, it is harder to find new converter boxes. However, they frequently show up in the used market as people replace their older TVs. This may apply in your region as well.

I hope this helps.

I have a D-VR7KC2 DVD VIDEO RECORDER. Is there any way to hook it up, so that I can record a channel, while watching another channel? I have a digital cable box. I don't mind only being able to record non...


The short answer is "yes", but it really depends on your TV having more than one input.

You would put a cable splitter (see Google images) on the wire that comes out of the wall. One of the OUT connections would be to the cable box, and the other would go directly to your Toshiba unit.

Depending on the outputs of your cable box, and the inputs of your TV, each unit would be connected to a TV input either by cable or video connections. You would then switch back and forth between the input from the cable box - when you wanted to watch live, digital TV - or the Toshiba when you wanted to set up/watch recordings.

I need to connect my vcr/dvd combo unit to an Emerson HD TV so that I can record shows. Can you help me?


Most TVs only have audio out and several audio/video in connections. Unless you have an unusual tv, there is no option for a coax connection from the TV to a recorder.

Since this DVD recorder only has an analog tuner, you need to connect it to a set top box to record signals unless you are looking only at analog channel sources. If you are getting OTA, then a OTA digital-to-analog tuner is needed for most channels. (Only low power stations are still broadcasting in analog.) The cheaper ones that were available with the government coupon were SD tuners. HD content will need a separate tuner. If you have cable or satellite, check the signal (QAM is digital cable).

Next connect the coax from your analog source to the DVD recorder coax in and another coax cable to the coax out and the TVs coax in (if you want to - the pass through doesn't work with a set-top box for non-analog signals). Set the channel to the appropriate one (3 or 4 for the OTA d-t-a boxes; desired channel to watch for analog OTA or cable). Set the TV to channel 2, 3 or 4. Alternatively, use composite A/V cables from the set top box to the A/V Input of the DVD recorder and set the recording channel to Input 1.

Next connect A/V cables (composite or S-video) to the recorder's matching out to the TV A/V or S-video In. Set the TV to A/V 1 or Video 1 depending on the Emerson TV. You can watch tapes or DVDs. For better video quality on DVD playback, also connect component video cables from the DVD recorder Out to the TV's component in (if it is available). Then set the TV to the appropriate component video input when watching DVDs.

I hope this helps.

Im trying to connect my unit to my tv to record shows and i having trouble doing so please help i am hooking it up wrong


For OTA or CATV signals, you need to daisy chain the coax from the source (antenna for OTA) to the coax input on DVD recorder and then the coax out to the coax input of the TV. If you have a set-top cable box with an incoming CATV signal, it should be connected between the DVD recorder and the TV.

The unit can tune in and record 480i (SD) ATSC (OTA digital), NTSC (OTA analog), analog CATV and digital CATV channels.

A satellite receiver or a non-CATV cable box should get the incoming signal first and then have their composite video output (A/V) connected to the DVD recorder composite video input and then their coax (RF) output (if present) gets connected to the TV. For these, you would record from the IN1 or IN2 (press Select Input) instead of selecting a channel. Then connect the composite video out on the recorder to the TV's composite video in.

Digital signals are either enough to tune in or give no signal. So check that your antenna is correctly oriented for OTA.

Separately, you can connect the video signal when playing DVDs via composite (good signal) out and component out (better signal) out to the TV's matching input. For the component video, the sound is carried on a separate cable. Then set the TV to the input source.

In the case of wanting to watch a VHS tape while taping to a DVD, do not use the Component video source, set the TV to Input 1 (composite).

I hope this helps.

Can the Panasonic DMR-EH55 be made to receive digital channels? e.g. via a digital capable TV or a set top box? If not, I suspect it will be obsolete when analogue channels cease this year (in Australia)


If you receive your channels through your local cable company, nothing will change. The DMR-EH55 will continue to work normally.
If you receive your channels with your rooftop antenna you'll need a Digital to Analog TV Converter Box. The unit itself will not receive digital signals directly.

Would like to record from my tv to my magnavox dvd/vcr combo box


If I understand your request right, You do not have cable or satellite box.
You can not record from your TV. You use the TV as a monitor from the dvd/vcr combo box. What the box receives is what shows on the TV. So you will have to have a digital convertor hooked to the (antenna in) dvd/vcr combo box, (antenna out to the tv antenna in) Depending on the antenna you are using that is on the other end of your cable-in coax connection this will hook to your antenna in on the digital convertor box. If your cable is hooked up and operating correctly and directly to the tv that is digital ready you probabbly have a good picture. When the vhf/uhf signal was transmitted you could go from the dvd/vcr to the tv with no problem. But now that the signal is digital and the tv is set for digital the dvd/vcr will not pass a digital signal to the tv. Best suggestion, you have to get a digital dvd/vcr receiver. If you have more question please contact me.

Awa dvd recorder dr711 can this be connected to a set top box


If it's like the DR620 it will only receive analogue from the TV aerial. I connect the AV out connections on my set box to the inlet AV on the recorder and watch and record through the recorder's "rear AV input" selection.

playback and record are 2 different things. playback, you connect the DVD player audio-video OUT to the audio-video IN of the TV. recording, you connect the DVD player from the audio-video IN to the audio-video OUT of the source (i.e. cable box, set-top box, etc) hope this helps!
