Daewoo Setpal VCR SV 900

I set my VCR (in the evening) to record for the following afternoon, but overnight it finds new channels and when I go to watch my recorded programme the next evening, 'new or changed channels have been found etc' message appears, so I press 'Yes', and then try to rewind my taped programme, but it has not been recorded. This message seems to stop any recording taking place until I have cleared the message. How can I make sure my recordings are made please? I am using the setpal VCR with a Digital TV, but I don't think this should be the problem.

    When my Daewoo updates overnight, it will not record or play anything until I have agreed to let it rescan and add the new information. So unless I do this each morning, it will not record at during the day and when I come home to watch my recording it has not recorded. I emailed Daewoo and this is their reply '

    I am afraid that this is because of the "freeview nightly update" that is sent to all digital receivers. Unfortunately, the software inside the SV900 is not compatible with the "freeview nightly update", and thus causes you to have to re-scan for channels every morning. This cannot be rectified as the company (Novapal) that made the software (SETPAL) inside the SV900 went into administration three years ago.



    Please accept apologies for any inconvenience this may cause.



    Yours sincerely,

    a power cut has frozen the video and will not respond, the time is stuck at the time of the power cut and there is a video cassette in the player, but the box will not switch on.

Buy a new one. simple fact is the boxes are defunct now as Daewoo refuse to support them and the latest freeview updates render the box worthless

I have a Panasonic PV-V4525S VCR and I'm trying to program it to work with the Comcast cable. Right now it will only record the same channel that the TV is on and I have to tell the VCR to record channel...


If your using digital cable it will only record channel 3 or 4 depending on what your cable box is set to...In order for it to record different channels it needs a cable source plugged directly into it. You will only be able to record standard cable channels 1-125. If it's digital cable forget about... you can only record it with channel 3/4 a solution to this would be using a 2nd digital box.. "auto-programming" may be limited even with a 2nd cable box. If your only using standard cable 1-125... you can use the TV/VCR button it will switch between the tuner of the TV & VCR allowing you to record while you watch a different show... keep in mind this won't work for digital channels which if I'm not mistaken comcast has already converted all channels to digital even basic.

My Daewoo VCR keeps flashing RF55, how do I stop it?


It's asking you to set the channel output for the RF that goes to a TV. This is for viewing the vcr via an aerial. You would tune your set to channel 55 to watch it. If you look around the menu system and look for RF or TV output you should find a way to set it.

Since I connected my TV to a digital receiver, I do not seem to be able to record programs with my Grundig GV 4010 SV, when I am out. I can however record emissions, currently being emitted by any station....


Make sure you digital receivers out to tv is going to the antenna in on the vcr, and the vcr out to tv goes to the input on the tv. Then set the digital receiver to the proper channel and set the vcr to record channel 3 or 4.(whichever channel you have the digital receiver set to) This should allow you to record.

I want to set up my video recorder to my tv and have forgotten how to do it. I have connected the two by aeriel but cannot see what else to do.


Youe aerial should be in the rear of the VCR & the other cable (flylead) should come from the output connection of the VCR & into the TV. To easily find the VCR channel insert a film tape into the video & press play, now selecting the VCR channel on the TV (EG. channel number 0) now you will need to go into the manual tuning on the TV & search until it finds the playback film, once this happens, store this setting. An easier alternative would be to buy a scart connector & connect this from the VCR to the TV & then the video channel will show on the AV setting on the TV, this saves you any tuning problem.

Panasonic NV SJ205 changing RF settings


Hi,
Your VCR has input to record video-audio signal. Here is 2 options to record program in vcr.
1= You need to hook up video-audio cable at Monitor Out in TV and video-audio in at VCR. select Line-1 or Line-2 (where you hook up cable) in vcr and insert cassette with Record Tab intact, VCR is ready to record TV program. select desired channel on tv and hit record button of vcr, recording will start.
2= Plug RF antenna / cable wire in RF In of vcr and tune desired channel in vcr (get help of vcr's user manual for that) and push record button to start record directly in vcr.
Have further query, let me know please.
bye.

Hi, as stated on other post, VCR cannot be programmed storing sat channels in memory, you can get only a unique sat input channel on VCR.
You can only record from the channel that is currently been received on Sat, you can even use VCR timer, but you cannot store Sat channels into VCR.
all you do is connecting the sat box output to VCR, and VCR will see the SAT box as input, or line 1, or AV1, or external, or something similar, depending on the model.
You cannot program VCR on sat channel, you will need to leave sat box on the channel you want to record, it will be the same on a DVD RW.

Can't record


Unplug the VCR overnight, reset the clock and try the timer again. if that does not work, there is a fault in the microprocessor and you would need to get a new VCR I'm afraid, as the repair would cost you twice what a new VCR would. Good Luck

Recording


Does it record when you are simultaneously watching a program? if yes, then recording circuits are OK. It is definitely a problem of settings. Try doing it again step by step. And before you program for timer recording, make sure that the VCR clock is set for correct time.
