Question about Televison & Video

Open Question

Hi, I have borrowed a friend's Maxim free to view tv, no manual. I can't work out how to set it up properly to watch the free to view channels. From the source menu, the 'AV1 (Scart)' option plays a channel called Pick TV. From the 'TV' option in the source menu I can scroll through BBC1, BBC2, ITV, channel 4 and Five. But each is a blank blue screen with 'no signal' in the corner. I don't know if it's a problem due to a missing cord, or i've connected the parts incorrectly, or it's the reception or tuning? I have a screen, an antenna, and what looks like an old modem; with three power plugs. Plus extra cords connecting antenna to modem thing and the modem to the tv. I live in a freeview coverage area. Would appreciate any help. Many thanks, Megan

SOURCE: Toshiba 19DV500 b will only

Hi, sounds like you are in Analouge mode and not in DTV mode so you can't access the DTV menu to tune in the tv.

Press the 'SOURCE' button and move to DTV using the arrow keys, then press ok and if channels aren't already tuned you will now be able to tune them by accessing the DTV menu by pressing the 'MENU' key on the remote control.

If you don't have the manual you can download it or view it by clicking ----> HERE
Hope this helps.

Hi fixya I don't have card in PCMCIA slot am told it is not important, I am only watching free view channels not subscription channels all the channels are programmed onto the TV. When TV is connected to...


You don't mention the make or model of your TV, so I am having to take a few educated guesses here: I think you need the common interface module on the TV if it's not going through another receiver. The CIM basically is the thing that allows the broadcast signal to be decoded (free or not). The SkyBox has it's own card and is already doing the descrambling first and then just sends the signal on to your TV.

I am not sure what the "free view box" is that you are using, but it sounds like it doesn't have a decoder.

CANNOT GET PHILIPS DVDR3305 TO RECORD ON PANASONIC TV.TX-L37D25B WHILE WATCHING ANOTHER CHANNEL?.


What is your source? Since the DVDR3305 has an analog PAL tuner and most TV stations are broadcasting in digital, you probably have some sort of set top box connected to the recorder. If you change the channel on the set top box, you will record the program on the new channel. If you are recording PAL and your TV has a PAL tuner, you should be able to just record one show while watching another with the DVDR3305 daisy-chained to the TV. Just make sure to change the TV channel not the channel on the DVDR3305.

If your TV has a digital tuner, you can split the signal before the set-top box to record one channel and watch another. (Note: basic splitters will cause some extra loss of signal and may reduce a digital signal below the threshold needed to tune in the signal. An amplified splitter can avoid this - when the amplifier is working properly.) Otherwise, you need a second set-top box (or a dual tuner set-top box).

On my set-up with an aerial antenna, I would put the splitter between the wall jack and the electronics. The incoming cable goes to the splitter, then cable 1 goes to the TV. Cable 2 goes to the set-top box. Tune the set-top box to the channel to record and check the settings with the TV set to the DVD source. (DVD set to record on Tuner (and the specific channel of the set-top box output) or front s-video or EXT1 or EXT2.) Then change the TV back to the TV source and change to the channel for the second program.


The manual for the DVDR3305 is available from Philips. The link to the manual is http://download.p4c.philips.com/files/d/dvdr3305_05/dvdr3305_05_dfu_eng.pdf .
I hope this helps.

(I actually use an A/B switch and do not try to watch a second program on the TV connected to the DVD recorder. However, most of my recordings are for time-shifting of programs that air when I can't watch any TV program.)

Replaced bulb last nite, green light blinks for a min. then it worked! watched a few min.turned on this morning blinking.... wont stop green blink. last nite when i changed bulb tv said change bulb reset...


Many projectors use a lamp hour timer for predicting bulb life so they can give you fair warning of impending failure. Since a bulb may be removed and reinstalled because it is still working or another used lamp installed, the timer is not automatically reset to zero when the lamp is replaced. I surmise your set is complaining because the timer was not reset or the time verified when you changed the bulb.

To fix the problem, buy or borrow a remote control; a universal remote control with a menu button may work. (If you borrow a universal remote from a friend, be sure to record the code for your friend's TV first so you can set it back before returning it.)

You could probably get back into the timer reset menu by removing the new lamp and reinstalling it. Caution: follow the directions on page 68 of the user's manual or the sheet that came with the bulb - let the set cool for an hour first, unplug, and wear gloves when handling the bulb since skin oil can cause discoloration and possibly an explosion when the bulb gets hot. You can download the user's manual from Panasonic's support page for this set.

If you can edit the timer hours instead of just resetting, you may want to set it for the number of hours the new bulb has been used.

It is likely that you can get into the lamp timer menu if the set is in service mode, but the user's manual doesn't tell how to get there (I don't have that info either - it's in the service manual, which may be available online from a third party for a price). Usually it is something like holding a volume or channel button on the front of the TV while turning it on with the remote control. After that you need the code to switch to the timer menu. If you have problems getting into the timer menu, ask your dealer's service department or try calling the Panasonic help line listed on the bottom of page 68: 1-888-VIEW PTV(843-9788).

Recording and viewing different channels


The EX75 has only one tuner circuit, so you can't watch a different channel from the one you're recording. To do this you will either need a set-top box for Freeview or a Freeview compatible TV.

TV screen on video 2 and remote died


The only way your going to change the video mode is with the original remote. If you need another remote go to http://remotes.com or call 1800 remotes Theres a button on the upper left hand side of the remote called video mode. A universal most of the time will not work this function. You could ask around to your friends and buddies or relitives if anyone has a working Sanyo remote or go to a local retailer that sells Sanyo and see if he would let you borrow one for a little while so you can switch out of the video mode. Good Luck

Can't get any tv reception


My friend, you need to hook up a signal source such as an antenna or cable . The channels wont come in and it will all depend on where you live and how close to a major city on what and how good you will get the stattions. then once an antennena is connected, do the auto programming again. Good Luck
