We have recently changed over to Freeview and have a tv with built-in freeview in the bedroom connected to a video recorder. We can play tapes as these come on automatically, but we cannot record from Freeview. We have contacted the Freeview helpline who confirm that you can record from Freeview, you just need to put your video to line 1 or AV channel and it should be there automatically without the need to retune the video. Our TV is an Hitachi which has an AV channel as well as scart channel. The video plays through the scart channel, but when on whatever setting on the tv we cannot see the picture from the video on any channel (line 1, line 2 or line 3). The connections from the TV to the video are in line with the instructions for the TV, ie TV aerial to the VCR, rf lead between TV and VCR. We have tried different scart leads to ensure there is nothing wrong with the scart. The main TV downstairs that also has built in freeview and is connected to sky as well as the video - we still can't see freeview through the VCR and cannot therefore record, although we can view. We have spent hours trying to get to the bottom of this. A neighbour has an old portable tv, old VCR and set top box and hers works perfectly. Can anyone help?
