Question about iLO DVD Recorder DVDR05
I can't find much information on recording TV programs using a DVD recorder and a digital converter. Does anyone have information on how this will work and what the limitations are ? I have read that if I want to record a program the converter box needs to be left on and tuned to the channel I want to record, what if I want to record two programs on different channels ?
I have my video outs from the converter box going to the inputs on the ILO recorder, and then from the outs on the ilo to the ins on the tv. Yes, box must be on and used to tune in what I want to record. I have successfully recorded this way. I never use the timer on the ILO anyway, it never works so If you want it to change from one channel to tape another you will have to be there. Also one of my box automatically turns off at a set time on non use so that is another problem. Maybe the newer recorders are differently programed but most cheaper ones don't have tuners in them so I assume they are about the same as what we have. Mostly for people who have paid tv now I guess. I refuse to pay, converter box is great.
