Question about Goodmans Televison & Video
Posted by Anonymous on
OK, I think I see the problem there.
The aerial lead from the DVDR to TV should be removed.
You should have it setup the same as the other Freeview - VCR - TV
Main aerial to Freeview input.
Loop aerial from freeview output to DVDR areial input (all this does is allow you to watch freeview, or standard both out of the DVDR)
Scart from Freeview to DVDR input
Scart from DVDR output to TV
Set DVDR to AV input mode.
Set TV to AV (whatever number you need for that..you now won't get anything on screen unless you have the right input selected)
If you can now see the Freeview picture on the TV and change the channels with the Freeview remote then you should be set for recording.
Having the aerial and a scart lead both going to the TV is not needed.

the ariel in put is different from AV inputs

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.
