SOURCE: Thompson recordable freeview box

It's probably a corrupt file. Probably the first one in your library.
What you need to do is go into the library and quickly delete that file.
You need to press delete and confirm before it has had time to notice the file is corrupt.
I think it's green then blue, might be blue then green. I forget.

BTW, If anyone out there knows how to make use of the USB port on these things, can you let me know?

SOURCE: Thomson TopupTV DV3 160 will not record programmes

Purchase one of the automatic searching programmable remotes. Make sure that it is a remote that can search and not one that only has a list. I found that a lot of inexpensive ones (less than £20) do get to work some basic functions - recording included. The usual way to set these up is to set the device you want to control to on and set the remote to search for the code. When the device turns off you will have found a code which you store - please note that there maybe multiple codes that work with a device and it is just a matter of trying each reactive code in turn for the closest functionality. In other words some codes might appear to change channels give menus but not work with the coloured buttons whereas another code later on the sequence might do everything. So its a long process to ensure you have the right code, but once its found - you have a remote again. It can also be setup to run multiple devices - so one control does the lot!

SOURCE: My Thomson Top up TV box will not record. I go to

Sounds to me like your hard drive is full. Do you use the topup tv part of the box? If not, deselect all the topup tv channels. This will free up a significant amount of drive. Failing that, you'll have to delete some of your programs, sorry!
To deselect topup tv channels;
Go into the menu option, Customise Top Up TV Anytime, and de-activate all the selected channels

Info time and programme is behind guide times so when programme records it records past end time. Ie programme records a 1 hour programme for 2 or. Hours or longer


A "CLOCK" somewhere is not set correctly. This may be your Recorder, your TV, a computer or even the CABLE BOX itself because these boxes need to work anywhere in the country and across many time zones!

Your QUESTION LACKS specific info and so does this answer...

HOW DO I RECORD FREESAT FROM TX-L42D25B TO DMR-EX773EB


link the output from freesat box to input on recorder, output from recorder to TV. if you have the correct leads. then the freesat will play through the recorder to TV even when recorder is off.
To record, set record from the input, av1, or what ever it's called on the recorder.timer recordings can be set the same way, or if the system allows, record from input detect.

How do i connect my samsung dvd recorder sh853m to my free sat box? Also is it possible to record a channel from free sat onto my samsung recorder while also watching a different free sat channel.


Hi,

If it's a Standard-Definition (SD) FreeSat box then a SCART cable would be the normal method of connection to your DVD recorder. This would connect to the SCART/EXT OUT socket on the back of the FreeSat box and the SCART/EXT IN on the DVD recorder. However, this depends on whether your FreeSat box has multiple SCART outputs and whether you are using a SCART cable to connect to the TV.

If there is no spare SCART output socket on the FreeSat box, then you need to use an alternative connection which is common to both devices, i.e. co-axial, and make sure you are connecting from an OUT socket on the FreeSat box to an IN socket on the DVD recorder.

If you have a FreeSat HD box, then you need to connect it to the DVD recorder using an HDMI cable or another cable type that will carry an HD signal.

You will only be able to record from a different Satellite channel if you have a Dual LNB with 2 feeds to the FreeSat box. The LNB is the receiver that attaches to the arm on the satellite dish. You can determine whether you have a Dual LNB as you will have 2 cables from the Dish to the FreeSat box. They may be joined as one cable, but there will be 2 F-plugs (threaded co-axial plug) on each end.

If you don't have 2 cables then you will only be able to record the same channel as you are watching. To record another channel, you need a FreeSat box that supports this feature and each channel needs also a separate feed from the dish.

Hope this helps. If you need any further assistance please post back with the brand model number of your FreeSat box and details of the connections you are using between the FreeSat box, the TV and the DVD recorder.

Regards,
BElectric

Digital tv -analogue vcr records and time records and plays back only with the picture on. It will not record with picture on standby


Of course it won't record if the TV is in standby as there is no signal. If you wish to record TV programmes without having the TV switched on, you need a freeview or freesat box for your Video Recorder.
Hope this helps.

Grundig GUFSDTR500HD FreeSat PVR Problem


Hi There, I've never had this problem with my Sky box, it knows which programs are repeats. I suspect its a problem with the GUFSDTR500HD. I have had two of these boxes from Costco, and both have both been as buggy as hell. They have recorded random programmes, they have missed recording programs, they often crash (black screen), series link seems to get it's knickers in a twist, and the up and down directional buttons fail to work after coming out of the guide or menu screen. To top it off, I found that the remote control also interferres with my B&Q fireplace... cycling through the colours when I change channel. Both of these boxes have gone back to Costco and I will never touch another Harvard Group (previously Alba, including Bush/Goodmans/Grundig) box again. Back to sky HD for me!
