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

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.

Unable to operate recorder at all.


When you are turning the recorder on it is blocking the signal for cable going to the TV. Your TV will need to be on channel 3 or 4 depending on what the dvd/vcr player channel output is set to. This is why your tv is asking you to re-scan. It is losing the video signal because the dvd/vcr is taking over. The reason why the vcr with the button on the remote is because the vcr button is changing the function of the buttons on the remote to vcr. Even though the dvd/vcr is one unit they still will act like two seperate components independent of each other. They have seperate power buttons and the dvd player part may need to be hooked up seperately with rca cables to work.

Timer record on vcr/dvd attached to digital convtr box


You have to set the vcr to channel 3 or 4 (whatever the converter box is set to broadcast on). The signal to record has to come through the converter box. Since the VCR only has a analog tuner, it cannot pick up any digital channels on it's own.

VCR to TV


Your FIOS box is typically a Motorola Digital Cable Tuner. In order to record from the VCR your FISO will have control of the tuner, not the vcr. If your FIOS has two video outputs on it for video (av connections), one should be plugged into you tv set and the other should be plugged into the VCR input. Your cable tuner will have to be set for the channel you wish to record ahead of time while the VCR tuner has to be set to record the line input at whatever time you wish to record. If your FISO has one video output line (av connections), your VCR has to be set to channel 3 when you record (provided that is the channel your FISO box is set for when viewing TV over the coax cable) and you will have to attach the coaxial output from the FISO into the coax input of your VCR.

The only way around this is to get a splitter and split the coax line so that the FIOS is connected to the coax as it is now and the VCR is connected to a seperate line using the coax input, however using this configuration will prevent you from recording digital channels. If you have a cable ready VCR, it will probably only recognize channels up to 150.

If you really want to get it to record digital channels without the hassles find out if Verizon has a FISO box with DVR to it or connect a Tivo to your FISO. Tivo will tune the FSIO when it records and it's very user friendly to use.
