How to record on a SOny SLV-N77 with a cable box


Hello
If the cable box you uses has audio video OUT sockets, then you can connect that sockets to the audion video IN to the VCR and can record the signals which you want. If it has no such audio video OUT with it, it will be very difficult to record programmes. But there is an other possibility; It is, if your TV has an AOUDIO VIDEO OUT sockets with it, you cn connect that to the AUDIO VIDEO IN to the VCR and can record the programmes. But in this case, you must switch ON all the devices, that is, Cabel box, Tv and VCR. OK.

I have a Panasonic TV with inbuilt Freeview TH-42PX70BA. I also have a Hitachi VCR VT-FX980E which I use to record analogue channels. Now that the analogue signal is disappearing I would like to record...


The simple solution is to connect your VCR to a Freeview set top box, which you can pick up for around £10. Simply connect the box via a scart lead. If the Video has two scrat sockets use the other for the box. For recording set the VCR up the same way but instead of selecting channel one or two etc set it as AV2 if that is the place the box is connected. When recording leave the box on the station you want to record and the VCR will record it. Don't forget to allow a few minutes either way for the start and stop times. Also if the VCR has PDC switch it to off.
You should be able to record this way whilst watching another channel on the TV. Some Freeview set top box's have timers on them so if you are out and want to record two shows on different channels you can.
If you have only one scart then a scart switching unit such as this below will solve that problem. Found on Amazon.

My VCR/DVD, freeview box and non digital tv will show prerecorded video and DVD but will not record (or if it has it will not display). Could it be that the set up is not wired up correctly? The freeview...


Unless the Freeview box has two tuners then your going to have problems anyway when you want to record something and watch the non-digital TV at the same time. The solution is simple get another Freeview box (they are around £10 at the moment on E-Buyer.Com) get a box like this:


grubhead_17.jpg Available on Amazon (Scart switching box). This plugs into the TV or you can connect via one of the freeview boxes. Whatever works best.
The VCR has the other Freeview box connected to the second scart. (select AV2 when setting the channel to record and set the box to the channel you want to record) the first scart from the VCR plugs into the above box. When you want to watch press the switch.
By the way if the VCR has PDC on it set it to off, as it no longer works with digital.

How do I tune my sanyo 768 E VHS recorder to the AV channel, so I can record from a freeview box, please?


Has the Sanyo got a scart socket? You would get a much better picture connecting the freeview box to that. You can also get a switching box so you can connect all the things up to your tv with just one scart lead to the switching box. See image below (from Amazon). The buttons switch between the scarts so you can record from scart to scart.

I have a Digilogic VCR/DVD player model DVDVCR1 connected to a tv with freeview already installed. But I am unable to record digital programmes from the TV.Will I have to bin my VCR/DVD player and replace...


I'm assuming you mean the recorder doesn't have freeview built in?
Then all you have to do is to get a cheap freeview box and just have it connected to your vcr via a scart lead. If the VCR has two scarts connect the one to the tv for playback and use the other for the box. If it has only one scart, then get a switcher box, there's some good ones on Amazon, that will allow you to select the different sockets and record from.

Connecting a freeview box


Your dvd player should be connected to the TV INPUT under norma conditionsl.What kind of recorder are you using? VCR player ?, Is it also a VCR recorder ( one cannot assume because I happened to own a VHS\vcr PLAYER, not player & recorder)Is Your VCR recorder? Then It must be connected to freeview box with universal scart to RCA converter box.You have "" dvd player in av2, vcr av1"" where? TV? freeview box scart connector ?
You will need scart to RCA converter box for sure.

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.

Record from thompson dti6300-16 to a video recorder


Hi
the DTi 6300 has an RF modulator built in so it will send a signal down the aerial cable. just place the VCR after the Digi box in the Aerial chain and tune your vcr to it on a spare channel then you should be able to record.
Hope this helps
