    Default Recording from Transonic Receiver

    Hello, I have a Transonic Freeview satellite receiver and wish to record programmes on my panasonic DVD recorder with a hard drive. Is it possible to accomplish? I have had no luck with the RCA connections and the guys at Dick Smith or other local providers just say it cant be done but they are not convincing. My manual for the panasonic shows a diagram using the 21 pin plugs but the Transonic receiver does not accept these. Any suggestions would be appreciated. Cheers

    My Panasonic HDD recorder has some RCAs on AV Input 4 as well as SVHS input
    I can record easily from the outputs of the Topfield Sat box to the AV4 or AV3 on front panel

    Name brand manufacters implement WSS VBI decoding on composite inputs which can have the do not copy flag set. With some receiver outputting this either by default or passed through from a DVB descriptor flag. You can avoid this by using separated video inputs such as S-Video and component.

    I have a feeling Component input recording may not be possible on the Panasonic . From memory its Component out only . My DSE recorder does allow Component input ( inc BluRay ) you may have to use Composite ( 1 rca for video ) or SVHS

    Usually this is evident when trying to copy a copy protected disk or similar. You wont have this problem with freeview decoders. in the unlikely event it does you can alway use the RF output into the recorder....

    this is recording from an ultraplus, several 1/2 hour recording and the file sizes are ; australia network 1.4GB, tv 1 900MB, tv 3/and prime 600MB, tv plus 295MB no wonder a lot of their channels are full of hesitations and glitches
