    need help

    trying to set up my philips dvdr70 and only have the quick instructions - anyone know how to download the full instructions manual

    First problem is that i didn’t have all the right cables - when i put my ariel at the back of the recorder - used an old coacx cable with a male / female ends to link the ariel back to the tv. Not a very good picture through at all - literally cant see anything

    Do i need a specific philips cable that would have come with it or will it work if i get a decent coacx cable with a male / female ends ??

    Also not sure how i would tune the dvdr into the channels - suppose i would get this in the full manual but any ideas

    another quick question - is it possible to put my playstation scart into the second scart socket on the dvdr and play it through that or do i have to do what i am doing now and change the scart in the back of my tele between the playstation one and the dvdr one

    Please help as i am being badgered to record shreck for the girlfriend on xmas eve

    When you linked the aerial lead through the DVDR to the TV, did the reception on the TV of channels 1 to 5 get worse than before?

    You can check if the leads are OK by disconnecting both connectors from the back of the DVDR and connecting the 2 leads to one another. This will bypass the recorder and the TV should then work as normal. If it doesnt try different leads.
