Samsung IDTV & Video sender Problem




I have connected a Video sender to my Samsung IDTV to send signal to the bedroom TV and everything works fine, except one big problem I have to keep the main TV switched on. So, if I switch the main TV off the signal stops being sent. I would think the same problem would occur if a video or DVD recorder was connected.

I would of thought there would be some setting for this in the menus but I can't find anything regarding this.

Has anyone else experienced this problem.

It's not a problem...it's just the way it is...there are very few IDTVs on the market which allow you to record from their in-built tuner while the set is off or on standby...save for a few Sony and Panasonic models.

Indeed. Most things electrical only do what they do, when they are switched on. (!)

You might want to consider buying an inexpensive standalone Freeview box to "feed" the second TV - either directly (if you can supply it with a suitable aerial signal) or via the sender from the main room.
