I recently bought a new DVD/VCR machine. The VCR is the problem, tapes are jumpy, many lines across the screen and close captions are distorted. EVen just watching TV without tape or DVD, close captions...


Hi Carrie

Not to worry, son-in-laws are good!

Assuming the machine is working correctly, there is only one reason why the picture will be distorted and that is interference.

Here are a couple of things your son-in-law may be able to check for you.

Firstly, make sure that the DVD/VCR is connected to the television using a scart lead. The DVD/VCR was probably supplied with one. It is a short cable with a large rectangular connector at each end.

If a scart lead is already being used, there may be other units connected to the tv that are causing interference. Try removing all the other units like cable tv, satellite receivers etc and see if the DVD/VCR is any better when it is the only unit connected to the tv. If it is, you will need to use a scart selector box so you can switch each unit connected to the tv separately. (Sorry I know it's getting confusing now!)

If it still isn't any better, ask you son-in-law to check through the menu on the DVD/VCR and look for a setting for Video Format. This should be set to PAL Format unless you are in North America in which case it should be set to NTSC Format.

Hope this helps, please feel free to ask me for more info if you still have problems.

Regards
Helen

DVD recording.


Sounds like the DVDR is recording from the digi-box through the TV, so when the TV is switched of or into standby the signal is lost, causing the recorder to pause.

Assuming the digi-box has two scart sockets, connect as follows:

  • Scart 1 or TV scart of the digi-box to the TV.
  • Scart 2 or VCR/DVD scart of the digi-box to scart 1 of the DVDR3380.
The TV aerial should already be connected through the digi-box and DVDR3380 to the TV

To record from the digi-box, select AV1 / E1 / EXT1 on the DVDR3380

Green Picture


The problem sounds like one I had. If so, the cause is as follows.

The Daewoo ouputs synchronisation information on the green channel of the RGB outputs (which are pins in the SCART socket) The Panasonic TV automatically preferentially selects the RGB input in the SCART rather than the composite video signal in the SCART. The video circuits in the Panasonic should ignore the sync on the green channel but instead interpret the sync as green signal information which means the adjustment of the green channel is upset leading to a very green picture.

Possible solutions:
1. From the TV, manually select composite video input, not RGB. This may not be possible - I think the TV automatically goes for the RGB if it is present.
2. Disconnect the wire to pin 16 in the SCART socket. This is the signal from the VCR/DVD to indicate that RGB is available. Disconnecting it means the TV defaults to the composite video. This is what I did.
3. Connect the TV to the VCR/DVD using component or S-VHS leads only.

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
