Question about Televison & Video

1 Answer

I have purchased an HDD & DVD Player/Recprder with digital tuner;

I assumed that the latest Philips DVD Player/Recorder would receive the digital signal and send it to the old TV. It seems to work with the higher channels but not with the channels 1 to 4 which I want to record. Do I still need a converter box anyway?

    Unfortunately I did not contact Philips beforehand other than the address they provided - which was YOURS. I bought the TV from Sears. Though it has no visible brand name I believe it was made by Philips. I was given to understand that if one has cable one does not have to worry about it being digital. Greg.

That wil depend actually if its supported by your old TV, since on the old televisions there are video 2 and video 1, NTSC/PAL options. whats the TV brand? did you contact philips regarding the compatibility with the TV?

    Ok, better contact philips first if its actually supported, they can give you more direct information and i'm assuming the DVD player is still within warranty right?



    • Turn
      on your TV and set to the correct Video In channel for the recorder.
      You may go to the lowest channel available on your TV, then press the
      channel down key on your TV's remote control until you see the TV
      program.


    • Check the video connection between the recorder and the TV.


    • *IMPORTANT*
      Your recorder might have been set to Progressive Scan mode while your
      TV does not support Progressive Scan. Follow these steps to exit from
      Progressive Scan mode on your recorder:




      • Connect the supplied AV cable (red/white/yellow) from your recorder OUT2 on the rear panel to the TV's Video In and Audio In jacks.

      • Turn on the TV and use the TV's remote control to select the corresponding video-in channel on the TV. (eg., AV, EXT1).

      • Turn on the recorder and wai
        t until the display panel shows a channel number. Press SETUP on the remote control once. The display panel will show 'MENU'. Enter the code "1168" and wait for the screen to be refreshed after a few seconds. The "Pro Scan" icon on the display panel will disappear.

You could try coax cable switch.
It will allow you to change from the signal going to the cable receiver and directly to the tv.
You would have to walk over to the tv and physically switch it.
shutting of the cable receiver may help too, while you are watching local channels.
Also, if you get a digital receiver, the digital signals come in much clearer.

My samsung dvd hr753 will not tune to stations? Our region recently switched to digital so we no longer have analogue signals. Could this be the problem?


Yes this is your problem that you no longer receive an Analogue Signal.

This unit doesn't contain a Digital Freeview Tuner so you will need to purchase some sort of External Digital Freeview Box to connect to this unit to enable you to continue recording on it.

When connected to the Panasonic DVD player I get a message when on One HD and any channel above that - "Unable to decode HD". How can I connect to these channels through the player?


You can't, without an external HD set top box connected via the recorder's inputs. HD is not a standard digital tuner format for this or any model Panasonic DVD recorder that I am aware of. Panasonic do not offer a way for the user/owner to skip the HD channels (which cannot be decoded) in these units. You can only skip analogue channels in VCRs/DVD recorders (which feature an integrated SD digital/analogue tuning system) - stupid really. It just means you need a separate box to get all the available HD channels through the unit.

Yes, 7mate (channel 73) is HD (but it isn't specified on their website or in the EPG) as is Gem ( channel 90) and of course One HD.

I assume your machine has a built in SD digital tuner.

I purchased a MDR513h/f7 hdd & dvd Player/recorder for my cable TV. I can not watch one channel while recording another. Comast said I must have a dual turner and that is what I purchased (I think)....


This model has only one tuner, I'm afraid. You can only watch one channel at a time, unless you split the cable signal going into it. One side goes to the recorder, the other to the TV. Then you use the single tuner in the recorder to record and the TV's tuner to watch the other channel.

The dvd recorder uses the video signal to detect, thus it will not detect the audio as a signal. I believe there are "boxes" you link in somehow to "fool" the dvd into thinking it's recieving a video signal, but I don't know where to get them.

Connect satellite receiver to dvd recordrer


there is really no way around it. Directv and Tivo are releasing a new receiver in a few months. Or you could purchase a HD dvr. Directv's receivers dont send any guide data thru a RF output, only picture and sound. The recorder you have is great for cable.

Channel selection


L1 and L2 are just line inputs. This unit does not have a tuner so there are no channels to select.
It requires you to be connected to a TV broadcast via a cable or satellite tuner box... and then would only record what ever channel you were viewing. The DVD is a player only.
It sounds like you should have purchased a DVD Recorder or a DVD/VCR Recorder. The players normally do not have a tuner. A Recorder should have an built-in digital tuner. Some also have the old NTSC tuner and may also have a QAM tuner.

Connecting PVR and satellite receiver


make sure you have a connection from one of your scart sockets (assuming you are using scart) on your sat to your pvr and then a connection (scart/hdmi?) to your tv from the pvr.

if you have a second scart or better still hdmi on your sat then plug that into tv

set top box scart output to tv

you do not say which tv model number you have so I dont know what input sockets you have but I will assume a couple of scart inputs and maybe a hdmi in (if hd version of tv) these days that would be considered a minimum amout of inputs so the setup suggestion above should be fine with that
