TV Information

If Your TV Is Not Smart  And Has Freeview / Freesat Input, Or You Have A Smart TV With Freeview Play And Freesat Input.
There Is A Possibility That It Has The PVR Function Installed, Check The User Manual For Your TV To Find Out.
This Allows You To Record TV Broadcasts When A Flash Drive Is Connected To One Of The USB Ports.
You Will Not Need A Separate Recorder To Record Programmes And Watch What You Have Recorded.
If You Have An Older TV, It Is Likely You Will Need A STB (Set To Box) Of Either Freesat Or Freeview If You Wish To Record.
The Upside To Having An Older TV, Installing Either A Freeview Or Freesat Recorder, Providing You Have Access To The Internet, Gives You All The Programmes And Apps You Get With A Smart TV.

Combi Recorders

Still Used In Many In Households, These Versatile And Multi Functional Recorders Do Fail, Common Faults We See, With All Brands And Models Are Power Supply Faults, Usually Causing The Following Symptoms, Dead Or Stand By Light Lit, But Will Not Power Up. The VHS Tape Deck Common Faults Being, Tape Loading / Unloading Mechanisum, Poor Or No Picture In Playback Mode  No Picture On Recordings, Poor Or No Sound In Record Or Playback Mode. And Finally The CD / DVD Drive, Not Reading Disks, Due To Faulty Laser Pick-Up Or A Failed Spindle Motor.

Freesat Receivers
And Recorders

Their Are Two Versions Of Freest Receivers Available, Those That Just Allow You To Watch Freesat Channels And Those That Have The Facility To Recoed As Well.
Faults We See In The Workshop Range From Power Supply Faults To Total Loss Of Sound And Picture. If Your Reciever Uses An External Power Supply, And Has The Following Symptoms, Dead Or Stand-By Light Lit, No Functions, Check And Or Replace The Power Adapter, This Is The Most Likely Cause. Failure To Playback Recordings And Or Not Recording, This Fault Is Classic HDD Failure, And Would Require Replacing. Total Loss Of Sound And Picture Can Be Caused By An Internal Failure Of The Reciever, Damaged Cable From The Satellite Dish Or Poor F Connector Fitting, And LNB Failure. For Recievers / Recorders With Built In Power Supplys, All The Above Symptoms And Faults Apply. If You Can, To Rule Out A Fault With The Cable Or LNB, You Can Either Get It Checked By A Satellite Fitter, Or If You Have A Second Reciever In The House, Try That In Place Of The Suspected Faulty One.

Freeview Receivers
And Recorders

Freeview Receivers / Recorders Were Launched In 2007 To Coincide With The Switch Over From Analogue Terrestrial Broadcast To Digital, These Enabled You To Continue To Use Your TV To View Digital Terrestrial Broadcasts If Your TV Was Not Equipped With A Built In Digital Tuner, At Relatively Low Cost, And Saving Thousands Of Analogue TVs From Going To Landfill. The Majority Of TVs Manufactured After 2004 Were Fitted With Digital Tuners. As With Freesat Receivers And Recorders, They Suffer From More Or Less The Faults And Symptoms.
