TV Repair Questions? Ask a TV Technician for Answers ASAP
Hello, I’m Nathan, and I’ll be assisting you today. My livelihood depends on your positive feedback, so your satisfaction is my highest priority.Sorry to hear you're having trouble. Can you please tell me how you currently have everything connected (tv, sky box, toshiba box)?
The connections seem ok otherwise I would not be to play DVDs or tune to ITV stations not BBC,
I suppose it is correctly connected as I can play DVDs and imagine that the problem is about tuning the Toshiba correctly as that it is in sinc with the Sky box so that I can copy programmes that I have saved on the sky gold box
The issue here is that you won't really be using the toshibas internal tuner, unless you had it connected to a separate aerial for freeview channels.
Rather you'd output (composite/component video) from the sky box to the toshiba, which would then record whatever content the sky box is displaying/playing back.
You certainly can record on it this way, the downside to consider is that it is a real time recording, so dubbing a 1 hour program from the sky box would take 1 hour, and you can't use other functions at the same time.
