How do i get my funai vcr to record from my freeview box. I can only record through my analogue channels. I have a funai vcr either 31B-750 or 31B-754 (PDC) and the freeview is an Astratc TopD2
hi, how is the free view running through the video?
Option 1(this is the most complicated way if you are using scart lead or the three color leads then skip to option 2)
if you using the normal arial socket ie arial from roof goes into free view then from free view into vid then vid into tell then what you need to do is make sure on the free view that you have a menu screen on the screen either tv guide or something that will stay on their.
Now put the video on a channel you dont use say 6 then you need to use the video remote and then enter the setup mode and then start the scanning process to look for the signal keep going until you get the menu screen that you opened on the free view then store this as channel 6 on the video.
Now when you want to record from the free view you put the video on channel 6 and put the free view on the channel you want to record.
If you free view box is using scart leads and has two scart lead outputs on the back, ie one for the telly and the other for the video, if you have it like this then plug telly scart into telly and video scart into video.
Now in the back of the video you should have scart lead coming from the free view, and maybe one coming from the video into the telly
If this is the case then all you need to do to record off free view is switch the video on the when you choose what channel you want to record instead of choosing 1 to 5 for normal channels you need to select av scroll down the channels past zero if you have not got av button once av is selected you should then see the free view channels try by pressing guide on the free view and put the video on av this should then let you see the free view via video if not dont worry press record for 5 min then rewind and press play it should now play back the free view you was just watching.
Option 3 now if you have it set up any other way just let me know how then i can assist you further ok.
If you have any problems following my instructions then just post me a message back and ill be glad to assist you further ok.
