Hello everyone, I'm new here. I'm not very bright so please be patient. I've just purchased the Pioneer DVR-420H DVD recorder and am having problems. I have a 12 year old Hitachi 21" TV ( I know, I know!) which has one scart socket and a fairly posh newish JVC VCR, also with scart socket.....so far, so good......no cable, no Sky, no Freeview. Set up according to one of the suggested layouts thus...........antenna cable from wall to VCR....from VCR to DVD....from DVD to TV. Scart from TV to DVD AV1 scart socket.....scart from DVD AV2 to VCR. All 3 plugged into mains. Now for the problems..... DVD auto set-up won't tune into channel 4. I've tried 3 times. Every other TV and VCR in the house has no problem finding channel 4. It says it can't tune direct from telly but has its own built in tuner so should be OK. Channels 1,2,3 and 5 all fine. Also, the VCR won't work any more apart from mechanically, so no link with TV. Is this because I only have one AVG button on my TV remote? Apart from that, how brilliant is it being able to record directly onto the hard drive and jump around and erase with a couple of clicks!!! And so much more to learn!! First things first, any suggestions to help with my probs??
