    When I record TV programmes, the only way I can have both pictures and
    sound on the tape is to leave the TV on, tuned to the desired channel
    and recording using Line 1 input of the VCR. If I try to record using
    the channel pre-set in the VCR, all I get is the picture. I just moved
    to Spain and never had this problem in the UK. I'm using a Spanish TV,
    with a British video recorder (but it's all Japanese anyway!). I have
    the aerial lead going through the video to the TV and a Scart lead
    joining the TV and video, all as normal. Is there something different
    about the Spanish system which gives me this problem?

    The PAL system in Spain (can't remember excatly which one it is) uses a
    different audio carrier frequency to the british one, that's why you
    have sound problems when using a UK VCR.

    Yours, Mark.
