Can you help?

Hi fixya friends.It's that women again. MY DICK SMITH DTV I still haven't been able to tune in any ABC channels and I've lost channel 10 now!!!!! What the heck am I doing wrong??? I am crazy.


Haha good post. This sounds very much like a weak signal coming into your sets.

First thing to do is to cut the VCR out of the TV input as a trial. Take the antenna input plug out of the VCR and plug it into the TV directly instead of the cable from the VCR to the TV input. If the picture improves then you know the VCR input/output for the signal cable is faulty.

However I think there will not be a change. Digital TV signals need the very best signal you can get in your area, and if a critical inspection is given to the antenna, downlead, and cable to the back of the VCR, something will be found faulty I believe.

In my case I knew the antenna was OK, and had not thought about the cable from the wall to the PVR and TV. All it was, this short cable was poor quality, and - poor pictures on the TV, plus no ABC stations at all.

You need quad shield cable, called "RG6", all the way down, and "F-connectors" at each join as far as possible, maybe also a proper digital aerial, and once all that is OK, then search for new stations by the usual procedure. You will find a good picture, and sadly, reams of rubbish programs.

Hi,
I am not sure if you unplugged all the cables from your VCR to your TV, If so double check the hook up. When you unplugged the POWER to the VCR the memory was lost. Try and find the menu or set up on the remote. Again the audio out from the VCR needs to be hooked to the audio in on the TV and the video out from the VCR needs to be hooked up to the video in on the TV. Keep trying !!!

I cannot get my DVR4300 to go in to TV channel change mode while recording a program


Why not simply record a channel tuned into the vcr and use your tv remote to watch a channel tuned into your tv? that is how it is normaly done... don't forget a vcr/pvr/dvd recorder has it's own channels just like a tv does... just no screen of it's own the tv has of course it's own channels and in fact does not even need to be switched on in order for your recorder to record a program neither does the recorder need to be on to use your tv

Problems tuning TV and SLV-900


the video recorder has it's own tuner you do not actually record from the tv... think of the vcr as like a tv but without a screen... connect to your tv via a scart lead and while you are on the vcr's 'channel' (so you could see a tape playing on your tv) and access the menu on you vcr (not the tv's menu) choos auto tune if the vcr supports it or manual tune if it has no auto tune and tune in the required channels on your vcr... it is simply then a matter of selecting on your vcr which channel you wish to record

Can't tune stations from freeview box to DVDR3380/5


You can only record freeview channels through your box.


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
If you are doing timer recordings, you will also need to leave the freeview box on the channel you wish to record, or set the freeview box timer.
