Re tuning freeview on a Toshiba RD-85DT

Hi,
I have got a Toshiba RD-85DT DVD Recorder with Digital Freeview and 160Gb Hard Drive. I can't figure out how to retune the freeview as there are a lot more channels now.
Can you help?
Thanks,

Rachel

it sounds like it is a signal problem check all conections to arial also if your signal has gone week you will have trouble picking it up but first check all cables and conectors if this dont solve problem then the problem might be that where the arial plugs into the digital box this might have a bad solder or circuit problem just make sure all cables and connections are secure does it let you see the signal strengt in the setup mode some do some dont let me know how you get on

If your cable is connected with just a scart lead (in AV2) you just put the recorder onto the AV2 channel. You need to connect the cable decoder to the recorder via an arial lead to be able to tune it in but there is no need just use the AV channel.

SOURCE: 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.

Can't tune in tv with dvd freeview.it states ext link problem


If you've connected the DVD to the TV via HDMI or SCART you shouldn't need to 'tune it in', just select the HDMI or SCART input. If your TV is also a Freeview device and you want to tune it to Freeview, where you have the aerial connected to the DVD recorder, you need to also connect the DVD recorder to the TV via an RF cable or aerial flylead so that the aerial signal passes through the DVD recorder. It's all in the instructions

My samsung dvd hr753 will not tune to stations? Our region recently switched to digital so we no longer have analogue signals. Could this be the problem?


Yes this is your problem that you no longer receive an Analogue Signal.

This unit doesn't contain a Digital Freeview Tuner so you will need to purchase some sort of External Digital Freeview Box to connect to this unit to enable you to continue recording on it.

as long as you have a good digital aerial connected to the recorder and you are in a good signal area then the channels should have been found automaticaly and stored on the machine.. a manual search and store would also work ok.. check your aerial connection/aerial type and any info you can find on freeview availabiliy in your area.. do you or anyone in your area have any other freeview device running ok?

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
