On attempting to change the digital station the signal "DVB Tuner Locked" appears, no current or future recording is to take place. Have now removed the recorder and reset the system but still the Tuner appears to be locked, what is happening and how can I delete the signal ??? Note : Using the EXIT button does not unlock only removes the wording from the screen similarly the OK.

SOURCE: Panasonic DVD Recorder - Digital tuner stopped working

Is your recorder hooked up to the new convert box for digital antenna reception?
I am currently researching the convert boxes for my dvd recorder. I found that some dvd recorders already have digital converter boxes already installed. This might be the case for you.

SOURCE: dvd with analog tuner work when swithc to all digital signal next

This unit will only work if you have a digital cable connection box. If you get cable service you will have this service if not you will need to buy a digital to analog converter box. This can be purchased at any large electronics store, like Fry's or the Micro Center. You can also purchase them on line. Use you favorite search engine and plug in Television digital to analog converter boxes. The search engine will bring up places to purchase them. I hope this information help you with your problem.

SOURCE: removal of tv stand

The stand is usually held in by 4 Philips scres on the rear of the TV.

The stand itself has 2 "Arms" that point upwards, about 4 inches, they go up into the base of the TV, screws then go in from the rear of the set, low down, to secure the legs in place.

The stand, swivel mechanism and "arms" all stay together.

Good Luck, I hope it helps.

I'm wondering where in the mix is your satellite receiver? The recorders currently on the market aren't able to decode digital satellite signals. They are capable of decoding cable but i'm unaware of any that work on satellite.

Tv stays on one channel,no color or picture just ghost or outline, i have a Sharp lc46sb 54u


Check the settings to see if it is locked on channel 3 for external tuner source to have an input from a cable box ant in that needs 3 to function or from some other externally decoded signal like a vcr. Does the TV have a Digital tuner or the old analog tuner? If it's digital you can hook up a rabbit ear antenna with the UHF output on it & should be able to tune in some stations. If it's the old style then you will need a converter box to get it to receive any stations.
Fist check the settings to see if it has it set to lock on channel 3 for external tuner source.

It is possible that the built in DVB tuner of your DVD recorder has failed, since your TV still has its DVB receiver working fine. I suppose if you have tried to reset the recorder numerous times, and it still has not found any DVB channels, then yes, the DVB tuner has died - probably not economical to replace that as a separate component, since it is hard-soldered to the motherboard, making the overall replacement cost-prohibitive.

But if you want to do so, you can submit your recorder to any authorised DVD service centre for a quote, as well as a detailed description of the problem(s) (assuming the tuner is found to be the culprit); this will help you to make an informed decision as to whether to go ahead with the repair or not. Up to you.

Presuming your unit works otherwise, you should not need a new one (but an external set top box connected via the recorder's inputs may be required if you need to record channels) - but get a couple of quotes from service centres FIRST before doing anything else ((you can always say no to the quotes if they are too high).

Make sure you have a good connection from antenna to TV. Check antenna and cable and cable connection to TV. Select DIGITAL button on TV remote when wanting HD channels. Remember HD channels are always digital. Also, any given TV station may not be broadcasting in HD at a given time. They can broadcast in digital but in standard definition sometimes. Your TV has a built-in DVB-T tuner. Try executing a channel scan to pick up all available channels. On-screen menus go to Digital Setup, then Digital Tuning, you can auto-tune or manual tune channels. The TV should take a few min. to scan thru available channels and store the channels its finds. Check with anyone in your area to see if they get HD channels (it is possible to be outside of the range of some TV stations) Your TV is a 2006 model and should still be compatible with local digital TV broadcasts but keep in mind digital signals could change in the near future (DVB-T2) and you may need a tuner/converter box to make the TV compatible.

My Panasonic DVD+VHS recorder has suddenly stopped recieving a signal. Aerial still works from dvd recorder to TV.


No signal from this combo unit can mean either one of 2 things; the program information didn't update correctly while unit was in standby, so some digital channels may be missing or scrambled, or you have selected a HD channel by mistake during use (this series does not have a HD tuner, it is only SD which would also produce the no signal issue).

Going on the first possibility, you can reset the unit back to factory default. To do this, while it is on, press and hold (on the front panel, not the remote) CH UP and CH DOWN buttons together until 'SETUP' appears on the display. Once setup begins, and the unit searches for DVB channels, release the buttons. With the remote, follow the subsequent options afterwards, when prompted. Check other menus, then exit. This should restore your unit to all SD digital channels available.

Assuming the tuner works generally, this reset procedure should help (it works perfectly for Australian models of this series).

No problem, I just want to know if this tv has a digital tuner? It says it has a "digital comb filter". Is that the same thing?


A digital comb filter is not a tuner. It helps improve the appearance of digital content by splitting the luminance (brightness) and chrominance (color) of a digital video signal (DVD, or other set-top box). This filter is only needed when digital content is going to the TV over RF (coax) or composite (analog) inputs. http://electronics.howstuffworks.com/tv-buying-guide18.htm has some details on the filter,

Please provide the model number of the TV for additional information about the tuner. Normally the tuners will be listed as NTSC (analog), ATSC (digital), Clear QAM (unencrypted digital cable) in the US. In other countries you have PAL (analog) or DVB-T (standard definition digital terrestrial) or DVB-C (standard definition digital cable) signals.

I hope this helps.

The tuner in this DVD recorder is a DVB-T SD tuner; it will also tune in the analog signals if you have any analog stations in the area. You will need a separate HD tuner (set-top box) to provide the HD content. I'm not sure if you can record from a set-top box with the recorder set to Line In or Input. The only input jacks are the A/V (composite) jacks.

I wish that I had better news.

I have a Pioneer DVR5100H which was set up to record Analogue programs - can I change the set up to accept digital programs. I have tried auto setup but it doesn't pick up any programs?


Hi,

You can't record digital programmes with this recorder unless it is connected to a digital tuner, e.g. a Freeview box or Sky digibox. This recorder has a built in analogue tuner which allows it to record analogue transmissions. Recorders which can record digital transmissions have a built-in digital tuner and usually have a DVB logo (actually looks more like DV3) on the front.

If you want to record digital programmes using this recorder, you need to connect it to a Freeview or Sky digibox, preferably with a scart cable. It is not sufficient to connect it to a TV with a digital tuner or built in Freeview as the player does NOT record directly from the TV, it must be connected directly to the transmission source. A basic stand-alone digital tuner (Freeview box) can be bought for as little as £10-15.

Regards,
BElectric

Lost digital signal on analog TV


You do not need to use an RF modulator if you have a LG DR787T. It will output the program on channel 3 or channel 4. If you have another recording machine, I think you may need to re-scan for the stations.
It is also possible that you need to use the remote to switch from the analog (66 only?) stations to the digital stations.
If using a 787, press HOME, select TV & press ENTER, the channel list menu appears. With the highlight on the top of the list, use the < and > arrow keys to select from: TV, DTV, Favorite, or ALL. This lets your pick whether you want to see digital, analog, favorites with the "HEAR" symbol, or all stations.

THIBSRUS:
I think that there is a selection on the Panny that works much like the TV/VCR selection on a videotape recorder. Your machine is receiving and decoding digital stations, as you stated you can see them on the menu screen, but is not passing them through to your TV set for viewing. To use the Panny as a tuner for live TV shows, or actually, programs currently airing, you have to tune the TV to channel 3 or 4, or, if using the Red/White/Yellow connectors, the proper video input selection, AND turn the Panasonic on, and have it sending the programs it is receiving out on the antenna connection or the video/audio out (RWYellow) connections. It is really a matter of selecting, on the Panasonic, whether it passes through the antenna signals, or the digital signals that is is receiving.

Switching to digital


No. The change only effects people that use rabbit ears or a rooftop antenna. If you receive cable now, no change is necessary. You will not be able to receive the HD channels, but you can't receive thiose now either. An HD set will show you the HD signals that your current Standard Def set can not show. Please note that your current set has a digital tuner but processes analog signals. The "digital" tuner that is requried for rooftop reception is to process digital broadcasts as the analog signals will no longer be broadcast.

I hope this helps,
