When you set up the recorder Freeview stations will be stored. This means that you can record TV stations without watching them. So you can say watch BBC1 on your TV and record a program on Channel Four. You need the recorder set up with Freeview to recorder channels. Otherwise you would have to have your TV on and recorder set to record via the scart lead. Which would be not great quality and messy.
You should be able to loop the aerial lead so that both the TV and recorder can get the signals from your aerial, if that's what is bothering you.

This worked for me... In the "Others" section of the Setup options, set Quick Start to Off. Then select and confirm the Shipping Condition option. Power the unit down using the unit's on/off button then switch the unit off at the mains. After a few seconds, switch it back on at the mains then turn it on via the on/off button. On power-up, it should (eventually) start scanning, but this time it should find the channels. I usually only need to turn Quick Start off to force a clock update when the clocks go back/forward, but it would appear that with Quick Start enabled, the unit attempts to used cached info about the channel multiplexes, which was obviously invalidated by today's mux re-organisation. Hope it works for you too.

I have a 22" digihome LCD TV with built in DVD. At 3am every morning the DVD activates and buzzes away. The screen doesn't come on but there is a loud click as the speakers activate. How can I stop this...


3am is the freeview box update time it will do this every day at 3am the loud click you hear you should not hear it but it may be the update switch that turns the tv out of standby for the freeview to be updated its a different switch that turn this on and may be sticking.

No instruction to set up the freeview box digihome dvb 915 can you help


Set up should be quite straightforward assuming you have all the bits.
You will need
  1. a standard co-axial aerial lead from your TV antenna to the female socket on the Freeview Box
  2. A scart to scart lead to connect the Freeview box (tv out socket) to the television.
If you wish to connect a video recorder or other equipment you may also need a second coaxial lead (male to female) for the RF through socket to connect to the aerial in socket on the video recorder.
If your TV does not have a scart socket you can connect the scart lead to the scart socket on a video recorder and then use the normal method of watching videos to view the Freeview TV pictures (here you may need to press the PAUSE button on your video recorder to prevent it going back into standby-mode after a few minutes).
Simply connect the box to your TV, turn on the power and the auto channel-scan will immediately detect and install all available channels.
If the Freeview box has been previously used in a different location / with a different TV transmitter you may need to re-tune it. Press the menu button on the remote control, scroll through the menu to set-up. Follow on screen prompts.

I have an Alba 32880hdf freeview tv. I cannot record freeview programmes to my panasonic NV-FJ 780 vcr which has 2 scart sockets. I have no problem recording the teresteral channels. Can you help pls


Hi Victor,

You can't record the Freeview channels from the TV. It doesn't work that way. The reason you can still record terrestrial channels is because the VCR is still connected to your roof aerial with a co-axial cable and the VCR has its own built-in analogue tuner for recording terrestrial TV programmes.

To record the digital Freeview channels, you will either need to connect a separate Freeview set-top box to the VCR, or buy a VCR which has a built-in digital (DVB-T) tuner.

The VCR does not record programmes from the TV. It needs to be connected directly to the signal source, i.e. your aerial.

If you need any further assistance, please let me know.

Regards,
BElectric

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.

How to tune freeview for digihome PVR80 it wont record bbc how to fine tune it .when we had to re-tune for channel 5 it worked perfect so please tell me how to do that again


On your remote control, press 'menu'.
Then select 'set up' on the screen.
Then select 'Installation' on the screen.
Then select 'Automatic channel scan' on the screen.
The box should then scan for all channels, and with luck BBC will be included. If not, please repost. Some older Digihome PVR80s can't cope with the new multiplexing standard employed by digital freeview.

I have a Digihome DV940B freeview receiver, and wish to set it up with a tv and video how and where do I put the areal and scart leads


This depends on how you want to use your kit, and how many scart plugs you have in your TV and VCR.
If you have 2 scarts in your tv;
Aerial coax goes to digihome aerial in. Aerial out from digihome to aerial in of vcr. Tune vcr into Digihome.
Scart plug from digihome to tv.
Scart plug from vcr to tv.
You can then record what you have selected on your digihome box.
In my humble opinion, it's worth splashing out on a pvr; you have more functionality such as being able to record 1 program and watch another.

Recording Problems


Hi.

Yes.
Most tv sets with freeview built in do not allow you to record it.
Check your tv instruction manual to see if it is at all possible.
