No effect whatsoever
The remote is working okay. The buttons on the remote at top right under the TV heading have never worked. I have never been able to synchronise the TV withe recorder in the past few years.
Because I can get into menus and scroll up and down etc. etc. turn the unit on and off etc.
This is getting frustrating. I am not a fool and know when something needs new batteries.
The display on the front of the machine shows AV1 or AV2 or AV3. And can be changed by pressing the input select button.
The button I'm referring to is not the one under the power button which you mentioned. It is below the number 9 button.
Done. Still showing AV. The display on the screen says "SCART"
Yes. I am using a Scart cable.
I don't get a picture on the TV from a direct aerial connection because the integral Freeview unit in the TV stopped working years ago. The TV took it's signal from the DVD recorder. and I still believe if the unit could be got out of the AV mode it would solve the problem.
I've solved the problem myself. I have retuned the recorder and the TV is now on. I trust you will not be taking any charge from my credit card.
I tuned the recorder before I got your message.. It takes several minutes to tune and I couldn't have started it after you sent your message.
