I would suggest using the programme guide on the tuner and setting the record up from there rather than trying to set up the whole thing from timer mode.

Record tv to dvd on Funai recorder

The Funai ZV427FX4 doesn't have a tuner. You'll need a set-top box (either a digital tuner or a cable box) that has a composite A/V out. Make sure to use a compatible DVD-R or DVD-RW disc (see page 27 of the manual given below). For basic recording, insert a DVD and press DVD to make sure that the recorder is ready to record to disc instead of video tape. (You may need to format the disc for DVD-RW.) Press Rec Mode until the correct mode is chosen. Then press Input to select composite input 1 or 2 (L1/L2). Set this source to the desired channel. Then press Rec. (For scheduled recording, make sure that the unit is set to DVD. Then press Timer. Follow the on-screen cues to set the time to start and end the recording. Otherwise the steps are the same. Then press Timer Set.) See the manual for screen-shots of the procedure.

The manual for this model is available on the product page: . Click on the Downloads tab. The direct link is currently . For older Funai units with an NTSC tuner, you will probably still need the set-top box. However, you can either connect the box to the composite video or RF input. (If you want to record a program from a low-power analog station, you would skip the set-top box.)

I hope this helps.

Where can I buy a digital tv tuner to replace the analog tuner in a DVDRHD04

Generally recording machines fitted with an analogue tuner can only continue to be used to record digital tv by using a digital set-top box.
It would not be practical or economic to remove the internal analogue tuner and replace it with a digital tuner unless the person is a highly skilled and experienced repairer.

Digital set-top boxes are available from all sorts of outlets at all sorts of prices. Many surplus boxes can be found at boot sales, garage or yard sales or charity shops at very low prices.

Most boxes have the minimum of connections and often offer only a scart output but some of the older, more expensive and usually better quality boxes also contained a UHF tuner in a similar way to the old vhs recorders so even older tv sets could be used with digital even though no scart input was fitted.

When im recording im unable to watch any other channels

That can be normal with some DVR boxes as recording a program requires a tuner and watching requires a tuner. If the model of DVR you have only has one, then you can do one or the other but not both.

Some cable companies offer DVRs with more than one tuner in them that let's you do what you described. You could contact your provider and ask them about that option.

Connect VCR without tuner to record from television

If it has a scart, you can get a scart lead to connect it to your TV. You would need to set the VCR to the Scart socket, IE: AV1 etc.. to record. You wouldn't be able to change channel on the TV, to watch another channel while recording though. If you had a set-top box, you could connect that up to the scart of the video then record, while you watched another channel on your TV.

Wharfedale DVDR24HD250 DVD Recorder When set up will not find any programmes on Automatic Programme Search (APS)

Products such as this will use an internal tuner to tune channels, this tuner will not detect your televisions freeview stations, to record from your television, connect scart out from tv to the scart in on the recorder, then select the scart A/V channel, use the television to select the channel you want to record, you will not be able to record 1 freeview channel and watch another freeview chanel as you only have 1 digital tuner (in the television) the recorder does not have freeview built in.. hope that helps

Recording DVB on this DVD recorder?

Have sorted this problem now, I purchased a SCART DVB TV Unit from Freecom, this did not work at first connection, but I then realised that it had to work as RGB into the SCART plug on the DVD, once I set the unit to RGB, all was fine.
I can now record Freeview on my DVD fine.
I do however have one prblem which this will not overcome, that is the addition of yet another remote control !!!
