It's not clear what you mean! So one of these answer might solve it. If you are talking VCR recording it must either have a freeview tuner or have a freeview box connected to it via a scart. Otherwise it will only record the five terrestial.
Digital TV -you must have a good aerial otherwise you will not pick up all the stations. If it has a hard disc drive the same will apply.
If the terrestial stations have any grain or the picture is not as clear as a bell on all, then your aerial will not be good enough. The type of aerial should be for freeview. See image below also you need to have CT100 cable (the stuff used for satellite) not the old brown co-axial cable (see below).

CANNOT TUNE TV CHANNELS FROM TERRESTIAL AERIAL INTO NEW SAMSUNG RECORDER


You need to purchase a digital converter box in order to receive the proper signal, the only exception would be if your antenna is digital ready. I would suggest talking to a tv tech to find out if you need additional changes.

Sanyo DVR-V100E DVD recorder +VCR - will this model record any terrestial digital channels?


It does NOT have a built in freeview tuner. You would have to connect a Freeview box to one of the scart sockets and set it to record from the AV channel the box is connected to.

How to record ditigally on old comb tv/vhs


If you have the box hooked up to your 1996 combo turn or tune on channel 3 if the converter box is selected to channel 3 you should get all your digital reception from the box to your tv/vcr. Select what you want to watch or tape on the box, what you see on your tv will record to your vcr when you select record.

Vason 10.4 inch portable tv tuning problem


I returned my original TV/DVD to the suppliers who then sent me a new one.
I experienced exactly the same tuning problem with the new TV.
The only way I could tune it, was by using the fine tune facility to find and store the missing stations. This took a lot of time and continuous button pushing, so patience is essential.
Once found and stored, the previously missing channels are perfect.
It would appear that the DVD player doesn't like DVD- recordings from my home recorder. If they are re-coded they work.
Anything recorded on DVD+ is fine.
In my opinion this is a good unit let down by a couple of niggling faults.

Tuning in the tv


Most TV's auto search feature will try both the Cable and the Air frequencies, but perhaps yours doesn't. Go to the menu page for tuner setup and make sure it is set on Air (might be called broadcast) and then run the channel search.
Cable channels and Broadcast channels (above channel 12) are not the same frequencies.
Hope Ya Fix It!
