    TDT

    Just joined and found your Forum very helpful.
    Could anyone help with my problem?
    I have been using a TDT box on a Spanish aerial for several months and have been getting excellent results. The problem started last week when I used the language button to change from Spanish to English when watching a film.
    Although I am able to watch the film in English/American, when I record the same film it will only record in Spanish. I have tried all the obvious things but I still cannot record in English.
    Any help would be most appreciated.

    Re: TDT

    i have just tried to receord "the disney channels" as it has an english soundtrack and it worked ok.

    so i think it depends on how your TDT receiver is linked to you VCR, which is the important bit.

    ideally you need the TV scart from your TDT receiver into the EXT2 in your VCR, then your EXT1 on your VCR to the TV.
    Then you select the language on your TDT receiver, then record EXT2.

    hope this helps....

    Re: TDT

    I appreciate your help SatandPCguy but my TDT box is also my recorder. The box has a hard disc inside which I record my films onto. It is connected via a Scart lead to the TV.
    I also tried Disney and have not problems with them, it is TVE1, Canal 9 and Five which cause the worst problems which only started a week ago.
    Any ideas?
    Thanks again for your help.

    Re: TDT

    hmmm
    not too sure if i can help any more....

    but i do know that SET and Disney second / alternate language flags are actully "English".
    the other channels second / alternate language flags vary from DOS, MUL, VO, QAA.
    maybe this has something to do with why it does not work, the recorder is looking for the "english" flag and not the other flags.

    Hi Satandpcguy
    Thanks so much for your efforts. I understand your thinking on language settings.
    What I have uncovered is that Canal 9 does not seem to be transmitting films in English. As this is a Spanish law I would love to know how to report them. I have tried to email them but they just ignore my questions.
    Anyway, thanks for your response.

    Re: TDT

    i suppose it could also be down to the fact that they may not have access to the original versiosn soundtrack, it may not have been provided, or indeed, they may not be allowed to use it by the film studios for certain films as they no longer have the right to broadcast the film in english...

    unless someone at C9 has forgotten to flick the switch!!

    Re: TDT

    hi kashby,

    i am not too sure if it is actually in spanish law....

    all i can find was this
    http://217.116.15.226/xml/disposiciones ... &desde=min

    Opción para el usuario de elección del idioma original en producciones extranjeras de ficción, documentales y animación, entre otras.
    but this is in a section regarding second channels (i dont think c9 has a second channel).

    so if you can find something else then maybe we can look into it...
