Crown CDVDRW300 DVD Recorder

I've had this recorder for a couple of years, but I have never been able to get it to record from my set to box (Freeview). It lets me watch the channels on freeview but cannot record them. Also what is the correct cable/Scart connections for the set top as I have moved it and cannot find again the correct connection.

Thank you in
Anticipation

    I have sorted most of it, I can now watch freeview through the DVD.

    main tv aerial into the freeview box,
    then run a aerial lead from the freeview box into the dvd recorder and from the dvd recorder into the tv,
    if the dvd recorder has no tuner,run main tv aerial into the freeview box,and then from freeview box into the tv


    scart lead from the freeview box into the dvd recorder,
    scart lead from the dvd recorder into the tv,

    But I still have the problem of recording digital channels.

    The Venturer TV has only I Scart lead socket.

It is possible to record a Digital Channel using your Panasonic TV's DVB Tuner instead, as all Panasonic DVB TV's output a recordable Digital signal via a rear Scart Socket, usually AV2. (Panasonic LCD & Plasma models may provide additional AV recording options switchable via Menu), while allowing you to watch any alternative Analogue TV channel or vise-versa.
Timer recordings can also be set using the TV's built-in timer to control 'Q-Link' (Next View Link) or 'External Link' enabled DVD's & VCR's.

The only requirement is the DVD Recorder or Video Tape Recorder has a Scart 'Input' socket.

The recorder is 10 years old. All appears to work OK. But on retuning the stations it finds none. Is this because we have moved over to digital and the recorder has an analogue tuner? any fixes?

Did you get anywhere with this? I have a similar problem with a DVD/PVR from Woxter. I've tried different cables and changed many of the settings without luck. I've seen a couple of posts which suggest changing country and sound settings (to PCM), so I'll check them out before I call in a repairman to check out the circuitry around the sound output.

DVD will not recognise discs


I think that moisture has formed on the boards.

The best thing to do is to take the recorder
and put in a warm room,connect it and leave for 2-3 hours.
Then try with a disc again.

I hope i`ve helped!

Hi Leah,

Good description and good job in narrowing down the problem. The lens is the remaining common denominator.

You need to get a CD/DVD lens cleaner. It should have a disk and a bottle of cleaning solution. They are available in the electronics dept of most chain stores.

A couple drops of cleaning solution on the feathery cleaning element attached to the disk, insert the disk into the machine and hit play. Takes just a couple seconds.

Best regards
Mike

Awa dvd recorder dr711 can this be connected to a set top box


If it's like the DR620 it will only receive analogue from the TV aerial. I connect the AV out connections on my set box to the inlet AV on the recorder and watch and record through the recorder's "rear AV input" selection.

Problem connecting Samsung DVD-HR737 DVD recorder to Set Top Box


I had the same problem, if you go through the channels from your DVD-R remote it should give you the option AV-1 and then AV-2 ? on mine it's AV1 (test it out first and you have to watch what your recording) then it should record from the cable box

worth a try?
