SOURCE: just installed new tvonics250 freeview + box

Hi,

I have one of these boxes and one of the things which has caught me out a couple of times is that the remote can control three devices. To turn the Z250 on and off you may need to press the DTR button at the top of the remote first. When you press the on/off button on the remote the DTR button should light up red to let you know the signal is being sent to the Z250.

You are probably aware of this but just in case you weren't

My freeview digital tv recorder model ferguson f20320dtr keeps switching off without being turned off


It perhaps has somekind of automatic shutdown when not in use. It should have a way to turn this off. Look around the menu system, it might come under power options etc. Or look in the manual for auto power functions.

FERGUSON F20250DTR I have had this appliance since Christmas and have not had any problems with it up until now. Then suddenly, last night I have lost sound output and am also unable to access my...


\'hard-drive initialisation failed\' = the hard disk has died. Since also the sound is gone that means you had a catastrophic failure in the box. It is still fixable, but it will be very expensive to do it. Time to return it or have it serviced under warranty. If both options are out then just junk it .

Hi.

Connect the freeview box to tv using scart lead tv will automaticaly change to freeview channel when digibox is switched on if you connect this way so no tv tuning will be required.

Similar problem as you helped me solve before.


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
Nutshell time:
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)
So..
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.
