A weird and frustrating problem, when I connect my DishTV Freeview Satellite receiver S7070r into the DVD/HDD recorder. Using an AV cable (composite yellow/red/white), the picture comes through fine, but the audio is totally silent.
I'm sure it's not a technical fault. The sound and picture work well when I connect the same Freeview box to the TV (Panasonic TH-32A400Z). And sound/picture both work when I connect a Sky box to that DVD recorder. This is all with composite cables - I've tried a few spares, and the equipment is all pretty new.
When I connect the Freeview box to the DVD recorder, the audio cables make the normal "ffff" noise, like they recognize a connection. But no other sound comes out. Yet the picture looks fine. Has anyone experienced this?
The Freeview box can record its programs on a USB stick, but I also like to put them onto DVD sometimes. It makes me wonder if DishTV or Panasonic don't want their products being used with other recording equipment maybe.
I've tried changing a couple of things in the menus, to no avail. Current technical settings here:
