I have a LCD Samsung LE32R51BD with integrated Freeview and have tried as many combinations of linking the tv and the recorder, but cannot tune in the freeview signal - I do get a partial signal, but it is so distorted the recorder does not recognise the low/poor signal.
In order to work around it (and I have to have a workaround to record the Eurovision this weekend!!!) I have connected a external freeview digital box to in-scart, and the out scart to the TV.
What I can't do is use the timer on the TV to get the DVD to run - also there's a little picture loss as the external digital tuner is old.
Recently I've had the digital tuner on the TV replaced as it wasn't switching on properly. The signal from the integrated digital is like a negative image, and flicks across the screen, I get sound, and I'm also able to tune in the analogue channels.
If anyone can suggest why the signal isn't coming through I'd be grateful.
Connections - digital arial to av in on tv, scart from tv av scart to dvd scart.
also tried, component leads, with scart from dvd to TV av scart .
Scanned the channels with each alteration, changed the output from scart to component or whatever was appropriate, and decoded the channels, but still no luck.
