Yes I have tried that and still no sound - it's as if there is an audio setting on the DVR somehow producing incompatible sound signal for the TV. any suggestions?
TV DVB tuner works fine with sound with aerial plugged into VCR and RF link cable plugged into TV aerial socket. Plugging aerial directly into the TV socket as you suggest produces "no signal" banner from TV.
Have had recorder several years with the same TV without this problem. I will try the full power disconnect for 10 mins to see whether the problem goes away!
Tried that with no change - I also checked to see if the DVB software on the VCR was uptodate - it is - version 1.12. Maybe I should try a reset of the VCR provided I won't lose the files on the hard drive
Tried factory reset and then retune - problem remains as before. Very puzzling. I think I may have to live with it! Thanks for trying. Over and out.
