Question about Philips VR550 VHS VCR
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. I thought at the time that because it was a new thing (DVD recorders) and they wouldn't record Digital.
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,
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.
OK, I think I see the problem there.
The aerial lead from the DVDR to TV should be removed.
You should have it setup the same as the other Freeview - VCR - TV
Main aerial to Freeview input.
Loop aerial from freeview output to DVDR areial input (all this does is allow you to watch freeview, or standard both out of the DVDR)
Scart from Freeview to DVDR input
Scart from DVDR output to TV
Set DVDR to AV input mode.
Set TV to AV (whatever number you need for that..you now won't get anything on screen unless you have the right input selected)
If you can now see the Freeview picture on the TV and change the channels with the Freeview remote then you should be set for recording.
Having the aerial and a scart lead both going to the TV is not needed.
