Can I record freeview on my VCR? I have a Sagem ITD58 freeview box with one scart lead socket. I have a Bush TV with one scart lead socket, and a JMB VCR, which has only one scart socket too. All three appliances have two co axial sockets each though. I have plenty of co axial leads, and scart leads. I need to know which leads need to go between which points, also where the co axial lead from the aerial socket must go. Ive asked over 20 people in the last week, and although theyve been very keen to help, no one has come up with a solution. After ive sorted the leads, is tuning in easy? Thankyou.
An Analogue VCR will nor record Freeview no mater what cable you use, I have a VCR/DVD recorder that's Analogue. And there is no way to do it I have tried including Contacting Manufacturers. As I said you can only record a Program that is playing on the TV and TV as to be switched on to do it.
You can record freeview its not digital on the output side as the boxes are designed to receive and convert so the Tv can play them. If you only have one scart outlet from the digibox you can use a splitter.Ok you will be limited to what you are watching on tv .In fact my Sony box when I used it ran one scart to the tv and one to the recorder .It would record and play back through the digibox to the tv .
Analogue VCR as to be tuned, its not just the recording, and you cannot tune a digital signal on an Analogue VCR it will only pick up the 5 station Analogue signal. I have tried every which way possible and it cannot be done without some other equipment that will change the signal or Analogue to see it
