[QUOTE=Voytek;2480660]Hi, I’m frustrated, confused and exasperated. We have recently gone all digital in my area.
My problem is that I have a TV with freeview and I want to connect my Funai DRVR-B778 recorder to it. It was previously connected to another tv which had sky and we could record analogue OK and also SKY digital but only the prog that was set.
The recorder does not have freeview so I know that I will only be able to record whatever the freeview channel is on.
I have a scart connection from the TV (marked Ext 1[the other scart is shown as Ext2/SVHS2 which is empty]). The other end is plugged into a scart port on the DRV marked AV1 (TV). The other scart on the DRV is marked DVD/DCR AV2 decoder which is empty.
When the tv is on a digital channel and I turn on the DRV the tv jumps out of digital mode and onto analogue mode.
I can record the analogue program but just cannot get it to record digital.
I have tried swapping the scart leads about on the tv and recorder but it did not help the situation.
Any advice, help, suggestions before I go even more potty would be very much appreciated.
Thanks in anticipation
buy a new freeview box about Â£15-25 in England and set the video up from that, a lot of tv’s like Sony are to view only, the signal is not transferable to external units.
