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?

I have a samsung dvd recorder, whats the proper way to connect for it to work, do i connect to cable box, tv


How you connect it depends on your system. You need to connect the video out of the recorder to the TV. If you want to record programs, you need to connect the cable box to the recorder's video in. (The unit doesn't have a tuner if you have the unit listed above.)

Place the IR Blaster near the set-top box IR receiver. Connect the RF cable from the wall to your set-top box and then another RF cable from the set-top box to the TV (not to the DVD recorder). Connect a composite A/V cable from the set-top box A/V (composite) out to the DVD recorder's A/V in (AV1) port. (Composite video is a three wire cable - the plugs are yellow (video) and red/white (R/L audio).)

Next you need to connect the unit to the TV. Depending on the TV, you can use an HDMI cable (best results), component video or another composite video cable (labeled AV2 AV out). If you use component video, you'll need a separate cable to carry the audio. (Component video cables have 3 RCA jacks on each end (red, blue and green). The audio cable has the red and white plugs.

You will only get a 480 (SD) signal output if you use anything other than the HDMI cable. (The progressive scan feature is not compatible with all TVs; see the manual for details.)


You can obtain the manual from http://www.samsung.com/us/support/detail/supportPrdDetail.do?menu=SP01&prd_mdl_name=DVD-VR375 .

I hope this helps.

(you have an additional A/V IN connection as well as a DV In port on the front of the unit)

Wharfedale DVD recorder, no sound. Scart lead connected to Sky Box & scart connection to TV. Picture OK & can play DVD's or record to HD but no sound.


HI if you mean scart connectors on rear of DVD recorder, try swapping scart inputs on DVD recorder and if no joys then on set top box. (some units have 1 input designated for TV and the other for Set top box input)

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.

Dvd recorder does not have tv tuner


sure you can record from your TV. You need to connect the AV1 of the tv to the AV1 of the DVD recorder. Then, when the TV is running, you can simultaneously record on your DVD recorder.

Use a SCART cable for the connection.

It's a shot in the dark, but it may be that your satellite provider incorporates a copy-protection signal in the broadcast.

Use an av output from your media box and plug it into the line input of your DVD recorder. It can record using the line input of the DVD recorder.

Do I still need an ouside ariel to tune in the channels on my dvd recorder despite having virgin media. I am currently using a hdmi cable and three scart leads to play a DVD and still cannot record...


You can only tune the channels if the recorder is connected to an aerial, however you can still record from the V-box connected to the recorder via scart, but you can only record the channel you are watching.
