Hi there. I have a sky hd plus box and I am unsure how to connect it to my Samsung BD-D8900 Blu-ray HDD player so i can record programs from the Sky box. Hod do I do this please?


Connect the Sky boxes AV out to the line in of the Samsung using a Yellow/Red/White RCA cable. Then in the source button of the Samsung choose External In or Line In and just hit the record button. The only problem with this connection is that you will have to leave the Samsung selector on Line In even just to watch programs from Sky. This is called a looped through connection. Your Sky is looped through your Samsung Recorder.

I have a Pioneer DVR5100H which was set up to record Analogue programs - can I change the set up to accept digital programs. I have tried auto setup but it doesn't pick up any programs?


Hi,

You can't record digital programmes with this recorder unless it is connected to a digital tuner, e.g. a Freeview box or Sky digibox. This recorder has a built in analogue tuner which allows it to record analogue transmissions. Recorders which can record digital transmissions have a built-in digital tuner and usually have a DVB logo (actually looks more like DV3) on the front.

If you want to record digital programmes using this recorder, you need to connect it to a Freeview or Sky digibox, preferably with a scart cable. It is not sufficient to connect it to a TV with a digital tuner or built in Freeview as the player does NOT record directly from the TV, it must be connected directly to the transmission source. A basic stand-alone digital tuner (Freeview box) can be bought for as little as £10-15.

Regards,
BElectric

Useless at setting up. No sound on playback. Blocked timer record


You won`t get round the scan without an aerial.You still can set a recording as long as you set the recording channel as av2.Make sure the scart lead is fully in on dvd and tv,this can lead to no pic but sound,or sound no pic

Got a new dvd recorder but the a v cords are black and red where does the black one go? also have sky running through t v do I have to run sky through the dvd player too


the colours are just for convenience; it doesn't matter which colour goes where as long as the port colours are the same at each end. i.e a black cable can be used for red ports.

Yes you will need to run sky cable to recorder then to TV if you want to be able to record SKY. This also means that you will have to have your recorder on even when only using SKY

Watching another channel while recording


Hi there! Sorry but you can't unless you have My Sky/HD recorder. The sky decoder is simply a one channel watch decoder. You can only record a sky channel and watch the channels normally provided via your VHF and UHF aerials connected to the decoder or vice versa.
My Sky fixes that although you cannot record to a dvd disc on this thing and the privilege comes at a price of course!

Recording from Sky+


could be possible that Sky TV is right protected therefore making it hard or impossible to record.

Setting up


on the back of your sky box there are two scart ports. one says tv and the other video.

from the sky box connect a scart from the tv port to the back of your tv.

from the DVD connect a scart from that to the video scart port on the back of your sky box.

now when you turn your DVD player on it will override the sky and come through on your telly without having to change the scarts around.

what i would like you to do now. is get an RF lead. ( aerial lead) plug this into the RF out socket on the back of your sky box either one will do ie RF out 1 or 2 makes no difference.
Then plug the other end into the back of your Tv if you have an aerial cable coming into your home then simply plug this straight into the aerial port on the back of your sky box.

The last thing your going to have to do now is tune your telly in. if you click on channel 6 on your telly then go to menu, setup, and manual tune.. A good tip for you put your sky on the TV GUIDE screen this will make life easier for yourself as you will know its the sky channel.
once you find it STORE.

now when you turn your dvd player on if you select channel 6 you will now have the sky channel so you can record whatever you like

Hope this sorts you out.
cheers
