Question about Televison & Video

1 Answer

Hi I just bought a Wharfedale DTR250 twin tuner HDD. How can I connect it up to be able to record sky programmes? On my old VCR all I did was set the VCR to EL1 and the selected Sky programmes recorded OK. The manual is poor and Argos not coming up with any answers. Thanks Bill.

My solution was to return item to Argos, got my money back and will now go ahead and order a Sky Plus Box. Apparently these type of Recorder will not record Sky programs!!

It could be the internernal cables or solder joint connections to the video input or tuner board. you can test each capacitor with an ohmmeter to see which one is bad. They should be 25-30 ohms.

I cannot record a show onto a blank vhs tape in my vcr??


Hi,

Initially, pls verify that the coaxial cable is connected to the ANT/Cable/RF IN of the VCR. Thereafter the built-in tuner of the VCR would be used to select the desired channel to be recorded. The VCR in turn maybe connected two (2) ways to the TV:
  • Audio/Video using yellow, red & white RCA cables/connectors using AV1 or Video1;
  • RF patch cord from RF OUT of VCR to ANT/Cable/RF IN of TV using either Channels 3 or 4.
Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information. Good luck and kind regards. Thank you for using FixYa.

Can't tape tv program on VCR while watching another show on digital cable.


If you set it up right per Comcast instructions:

Your VCR will record a show off of its built in tuner while you are watching another show from the cable box.

Make sure that the AB switch is set into the correct position and that you are only recording a show that that isn't digital. I believe you can only record shows up to channel 150 off the VCR tuner. Anything higher than that won't work.

If your Comcast Cable Tuner has two AV outputs in the back of it, you can skip the AB switch altogether and plug the one of the cable tuner output lines into the back of the VCR input lines. That way it can record that show you are watching on the cable tuner at that same time.

Hi.

If the picture & sound are ok in analogue mode then chances are you have problem with digital tuner.
This may be expensive to repair so I would advise connect external freeview box or sky etc to get digi channels using scart to connect to your TV.

I can not record any tv programs because my vcr does not have a internal tuner so how can i fix this problem?


If the VCR has no tuner, you must have another tuner connected (such as a cable or satellite box) in order to be able to record anything. This tuner will then select the channel to be recorded.
