a relative was given one of these a few weeks ago as a present and asked if i would set it up. ive been using dvds for a good few years but have had no experience of recorders, only what ive read. i didnt really know what i was doing so instead of messing it up i just connected it up, scart to tv so they could watch some dvds, but they have been experiencing the sound from the tv playing in the background. they have a cable tv box and a vhs recorder. to be honest i think they got this because it's their first dvd player and being able to record aswell as watching dvds probably seemed quite appealing.they arent very technically minded, not being rude to them, so how are these things to use in general on a day to day basis? i dont want to see them having trouble everytime they come to record a program or watch one back. i did suggest that they exchange it for a decent dvd player, probably for half the price this costed, and just stick to a vhs recorder for the time being, then think about getting one in the future. they are thinking about it but incase they want to give the recorder a try can anyone help me in setting it up, what i do what i connect to what and if i need to get any extra leads. cheers.
