Not to put a downer on your Sony DVD recorder but I had a Sony Video recorder which I lost the menu on and the remote ceased to function. I reset to the manfacturers settings and the thing never worked again. If they are still using the same chipsets internally for menus and programming which highly likely, and there is a fault. Once reset the machine is locked out. I recycled mine. I hope you can fix it, best of luck.

martin: I believe those transmitters are low power relays.You might try pointing your aerial towards Sandy Heath North West of you. Otherwise the London transmitter. Sandy is 56km away but it is a main transmitter in the region of a Megawatt I think. The problem around Princes Risborough is all them Chiltern Hills. Hope it helps,I spent many years around that area trying to get decent pictures in the analogue era.

Jinny: From what I understand you will only get a limited number of channels if any. To use a sky box anywhere you need a freesat card for the sky box to enable it to pass thru the freesat channels. You pay for this card.
If you buy a freesat box which is not tied to sky you will receive at least 40 channels+ without needing a card. Sky can always change their stance and block these freesat cards.
Go with a freesat box I have and its great.
I'm in south West France.

I live in the SW of France and receive about 50 clear UK TV channels from a satellite dish aligned to 28.2 Astra "2D". If you have the old analogue setup which still works if you like German TV, so you must re-align your dish. I use a Humax Freesat box and a 80cm dish. Setup was easy. All I needed was my old UK postcode and it tuned into my local TV as if I was in the UK. I have also setup my old UK freeview box on a TV aerial and can receive about 10 French TV channels which is useful to improve my language skills. What more do I need? I have everything.
