Question about Sony Televison & Video
All TVs and other receiving equipment (e.g. VCR, DVD) needs to be retuned after the digital switchover, particularly if you were only watching analogue transmissions prior to the switch. However, not all receiving equipment has a built-in digital tuner. Some TVs and DVD recorders need a separate Freeview/digital tuner if you want to use them for recording. Devices which have a built-in digital tuner will usually have the DVB icon (looks more like DV3) somewhere on the front of the unit.
It's likely that your DVD recorder simply needs retuning - assuming it has a built-in DVB tuner or is connected to a Freeview Box. This can be done from within the on-screen menus of the DVD player. These can be accessed by pressing the "MENU" button on the DVD player remote and then running the CHANNEL SCAN for digital channels from the SETUP/OPTIONS menu.
I can let you know the exact steps for retuning your DVD recorder, but I will need to know the model number of the DVD recorder in order to do so. It would also help me if you could provide the following details, so that I can verify whether it needs an additional digital tuner and the correct setup.
1. Model number of DVD recorder.
2. Does it have the DVB (DV3) icon?
3. Is there a Freeview box connected to the DVD recorder?
4. Can you playback from DVD and/or hard-disk?
