Why cant I change channels when recrding 2 progs?


Hello Anonymous,
You did not specify if you are using a DVR capable cable/satellite box, which I what I presume is the case.That DVR has two tuners in it - each tuner allowing you to watch and/or record two programs at one time and in any combination.If both of those tuners are used for recording then you cannot watch another "live" stream as there no available tuners to tune and display (or stream to the DVR hard drive for recording). You can only switch between the two recording programs.
As a side note, if your TV has a built-in tuner, you can split the cable and have one going to the DVR and the second run going to the TV set. You can then use the TV's built in tuner and watch what anything it can get. It won't get scrambled digital cable but will get analog and Clear QAM channels.

Hello I have just got a Sony PFM 42VIE television. How do I connect it via cables to be able to pick up tv broadcasts vis a panasonic dvd recorder with built in freeview. Thankyou.


Hi, The simplest way to connect the dvd recorder to television will be via the coaxial connections(the cables with the screw on ends)- ( on dvd recorder one will say in from ant./cable the other will say out to tv ) this should enable you to change your tv's channel with your dvd recorder which is what you're after I assume. The best connection will be with the dvd recorders HDMI output or component video out, keep in mind they may only work for dvd viewing and not with tv channels, also hdmi ouput has audio built in-with component video you will need to connect dvds L/R stereo output to the audio input for component video ( these connectors are marked red,green and blue.) the stereo input will be red and white.Thanks and I hope this was helpful, good luck Prodzilla

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 just purchased the sony video player SLV SF900 for my mum. I have used a scart socket to connect through the freeview box and to the back of the video. I have also added the aerial sockets. The...


Not all SCART connectors and cables carry the IN and OUT connections - make sure that the one from the freeview box has OUT connections, that the cable can carry them and that the one from the recorder has IN connections. Then , to record what you want, all you have to do is to tune the freeview box on that channel and set the recorder to use that SCART connector as source.

Unable to down load TV programs from my L19W861 Envision Series T


The best way to record is to connect the recorder directly to the source (cable or satellite box) and then connect the recorder output to the TV.

I want to add a DVD recorder into my TV set up


If I'm right On the DVD recorder there should be an aerial input and an output. Connect external aerial to the output then run a second from the output to the TV. Then use the HDMI to connect the DVD. This will then give you the option of recording one channel on the DVD whilst watching another thru the receiver thats built into the TV. You will then get the best poss picture when viewing DVD
