    Thanks for your response, but excuse my ignorance when I ask what 'the ordinary composite input' is?

Hi there

You'll have to settle for the ordinary Composite input on the Projector.

You do get a scart to composite convertor from most good PC & AV shops.

    Hi there



    Normal composite would be the single video input at the back that is yellow in colour.

I bought a freeview box, My tv has only one scart socket. how do i connect my dvd player to combine with this?


You need a video switch box, that has two video and audio inputs and a video and audio output that connects to the video and audio connections on the scart cable.
Then you can switch between the DVD player or the freeview box.
These devices are available on the Internet, use Google to search for these devices.

I have a Digilogic VCR/DVD player model DVDVCR1 connected to a tv with freeview already installed. But I am unable to record digital programmes from the TV.Will I have to bin my VCR/DVD player and replace...


I'm assuming you mean the recorder doesn't have freeview built in?
Then all you have to do is to get a cheap freeview box and just have it connected to your vcr via a scart lead. If the VCR has two scarts connect the one to the tv for playback and use the other for the box. If it has only one scart, then get a switcher box, there's some good ones on Amazon, that will allow you to select the different sockets and record from.

S-video connection from freeview box - only black and white image


It's quite rare for Freeview boxes to have S-video output (even through the SCART). I suggest checking that your box does in fact provide S-video out.

I cannot connect the dvd, freeview and tv wires so that they all work. I only have one scart socket at the back of the tv but have bought a scart adaptor to solve this problem. I cannot get my dvd to work...


If your freeview has two scart sockets,connect a scart from the freeview(marked tv)into the tv,then one from the dvd into the other scart socket on the freeview,the main aerial should go into the freeview and a flylead out into the tv.Hope this helps

Connecting a freeview box


Your dvd player should be connected to the TV INPUT under norma conditionsl.What kind of recorder are you using? VCR player ?, Is it also a VCR recorder ( one cannot assume because I happened to own a VHS\vcr PLAYER, not player & recorder)Is Your VCR recorder? Then It must be connected to freeview box with universal scart to RCA converter box.You have "" dvd player in av2, vcr av1"" where? TV? freeview box scart connector ?
You will need scart to RCA converter box for sure.

TV, freeview, DVD and video set up.


Hi.
Modern day freeview boxes rarely have A modulator in them so you can not tune it to a channel on your tv it must be connected using scart lead.
Most freeview boxes have 2 scart sockets one for VCR & one for TV plug your scart leads in to the scart sockets of freeview they will be labled TV & VCR.
The scart labled TV goes to scart socket on the TV labled AV1 or 1
The scart labled VCR goes to scart socket on VCR labled AV or IN
Now the aerial leads From wall socket to ANT in on freeview.
Then from RF out on freeview to ANT in on VCR.
Then RF out on VCR to ANT in on TV doing this will enable you to put TV on 9 to watch tapes.

The final scart will be from DVD to TV socket marked AV2

You will need to put TV on AV channel to view freeview.
To record freeview you must put VCR to EITHER line.av,aux. it will be one of those different manufacturers call them by varying names.
I have done this banking on your tv having 2 scart sockets if it only has 1 let me know & I will tell you how to wire it differently.
Please state make & model of TV set & VCR & what connections are available EG scart, Phono, Svhs etc.

Can't re patch tv with set top box to watch tv


Hi.

Ok here goes.

1) Take airial lead from the wall socket in to antenna in on freeview box.

2) connect short usually black airial type lead in to antenna out socket on freeview. plug the other end of this lead in to aerial in on vcr.

3) connect the other end of this aerial type lead to airial plug on the back of tv.

4) now if you have 2 or more scart sockets on the back of tv set plug in the scarts in this order.
Freeview box scart with tv on it connect to scart 1 on tv set.
Freeview box vcr scart connect to vcr in scart socket on vcr.
Vcr scart marked tv plug scart from here to scart 2 on tv
If you have 3 scart sockets on tv you can connect dvd using scart to scart socket 3 on tv.

If Tv has only 1 scart the aerial leads will stay the same as I have stated,
Freeview must go to scart socket on tv set.
leave second scart from freeview to vcr plugged in so you can record freeview by putting vcr to line 1 or AV 1.
you will need to put tv on channel (0) & tune this channel to the video play a tape that you recognise then go to tv tuning & tune tv untill you see video playing then store this on channel (0).
DO NOT USE AUTO TUNING IT WILL PUT CHANNELS IN THE WRONG ORDER JUST USE MANUAL TUNING.

Now to view Dvd you will either need to purchase A scart switch box. Or have keep unpluging freeview scart from tv so you can plug in dvd .

If your tv has red yellow white phono sockets you can plug dvd in to these, you may need to purchase phono leads.

Hope this helps.

Can't tune stations from freeview box to DVDR3380/5


You can only record freeview channels through your box.


Assuming the digi-box has two scart sockets, connect as follows:

  • Scart 1 or TV scart of the digi-box to the TV.
  • Scart 2 or VCR/DVD scart of the digi-box to scart 1 of the DVDR3380.
The TV aerial should already be connected through the digi-box and DVDR3380 to the TV

To record from the digi-box, select AV1 / E1 / EXT1 on the DVDR3380
If you are doing timer recordings, you will also need to leave the freeview box on the channel you wish to record, or set the freeview box timer.

Wharfedale DVDRHD400 Set up Issue


Hi I had the same problem. The answer is to use a scart lead on the freeview box and connect it to the input/output scart on the DVD. Then connect a scart lead from the TV out on the DVD to the TV. You then press Video source on the DVD remote until 'scart' is displayed to pick the freeview channels. Hope that helps
