I cannot get BBC1. Thought I would bring this subject up as I am also interested.

How is the combo connected, is the TV aerial connected to the combo and more importantly is your TV a freeview set with built in tuner or can you only get the 5 analogue channels?

Sorry, a few questions there for you.

PS can you give the model of the Samsung?

Thank you for getting back I hope I am not hijacking this persons thread. I will be able to answer your questions after Monday 18 Feb as it is not my TV. I will be visiting the person in question who's TV it is. She does have a Panasonic dig converter box modal TU-CT20. If I am in the wrong for using this thread please tell me.

Given that superchip posted in June 2007 I think we can both be forgiven ( subject to FE's approval) for the diversion.

As a starter, ask her to retune the box.

Secondly ask her what her Ch 5 reception is like on analogue TV.

Do you mean the freeview box or the Vidieo / DVD box?

The digibox.

Samsung VCR&DVD Player. DVD-VS600 model. I have re tuned everything in. First I was doing an Auto re tune, it still wouldn't give me all 5 Chanel's, I tried nearly all night trying to manually tune in Chanel 1, I gave up and went back to auto tune, this time I had Chanel 1 but not 5, I thought maybe next time I might get all five Chanel's. I did another auto re tune and I did get all 5;-). I couldn't get VCR Chanel which I had on "0". This is for the next time I go. I guess I will have to keep retuning until all 5 plus the VCR works. It had been re tuned more than once before but I myself kept at it until it worked. If any one has this model when it records it doesn't say which Chanel it is recording on. Am I going wrong somewhere or is this the way it works? Thank you for your help and advice anskyber.

One more thing I have thought of. I said to switch of the digbox when wanting to record and use the hand set that came with the TV and the handset that came with Samsung DVD Video player, was I right in saying this?
