You need to purchase a digital converter box in order to receive the proper signal, the only exception would be if your antenna is digital ready. I would suggest talking to a tv tech to find out if you need additional changes.

Unable to tune my liteon dvd recorder DD-A300 to a panasonic tv


I'm a bit confused about what you are trying to do? DVD recorders don't tune in to TV's anymore. They output the signal to the TV via a connector such as HDMI. To record the recorder will need an aerial feed etc, which can be split using a splitter between what feeds the TV and Recorder.

Have a new digital TV, can only record the 5 terrestial channels, how do I tune in to the other digital channels, i.e. BBC3, E4 etc.


It's not clear what you mean! So one of these answer might solve it. If you are talking VCR recording it must either have a freeview tuner or have a freeview box connected to it via a scart. Otherwise it will only record the five terrestial.
Digital TV -you must have a good aerial otherwise you will not pick up all the stations. If it has a hard disc drive the same will apply.
If the terrestial stations have any grain or the picture is not as clear as a bell on all, then your aerial will not be good enough. The type of aerial should be for freeview. See image below also you need to have CT100 cable (the stuff used for satellite) not the old brown co-axial cable (see below).

How to connect a vcr for recording programs


1 - To start with..
Plug aerial lead into the "RF input" on rear of vcr
--> now you can tape programs (providing vc is "tuned" correctly)

2 - Plug a lead from "RF output" into tv's "RF input"
--> now you can watch programs on tv _independently_ of vcr (ie can be watching 1 program & taping a separate one on vcr)

3 - Plug red/white/yellow cable from vcr's "VIDEO/AUDIO output" into tv's "VIDEO/AUDIO input"
--> now you can
1) play a tape in vcr, & watch it on tv
& 2) change what watching on tv via vcr's remote


* Note: This is for analogue terrestial television (aerial on roof), not digital/satellite tv, connecting to stereo, etc, etc (the "more involved " setups)

Record and watch different channels with freesat


I believe that the Humax can only output 1 channel and because it has no built in hdd and twin channel capabilty that is all you can record 1 channel (unlike sky +/sky HD) so that means also that unless you watch a different source (like the picture from your aerial (terrestial channels)) you are stuck with having to watch the channel you record

Vason 10.4 inch portable tv tuning problem


I returned my original TV/DVD to the suppliers who then sent me a new one.
I experienced exactly the same tuning problem with the new TV.
The only way I could tune it, was by using the fine tune facility to find and store the missing stations. This took a lot of time and continuous button pushing, so patience is essential.
Once found and stored, the previously missing channels are perfect.
It would appear that the DVD player doesn't like DVD- recordings from my home recorder. If they are re-coded they work.
Anything recorded on DVD+ is fine.
In my opinion this is a good unit let down by a couple of niggling faults.

Tuning in the tv


Most TV's auto search feature will try both the Cable and the Air frequencies, but perhaps yours doesn't. Go to the menu page for tuner setup and make sure it is set on Air (might be called broadcast) and then run the channel search.
Cable channels and Broadcast channels (above channel 12) are not the same frequencies.
Hope Ya Fix It!

Troble tuning in


If your recorder is hooked up after the cable box, then it can probably only receive channel 3...the set-top box does the switching, and sends everything to the TV (and recorder) on Ch. 3
