Question about Sony RDR-GX300 DVD Recorder
Hi: Just purchased sony RDR-HX780 hdd/dvd recorder. I have Star Choice
HD satellite tv with av out, sony KF-42A10 Grand Wega hdtv and a sony
dream home theater system. I connected all components using either av
or component video cables serially, sat, dvd, dream system, tv.turned
on components, setup menu appeared on Vid 5 on tv and worked ok. Tried
to watch sat. tv, nothing. Before adding recorder, had sat. hooked to
vid 4 on tv,
audio out of box to dream system and comp. vid cables from vid out on dream system to vid 5 on tv to watch dvd's. I want to use recorder as a PVR,
what am I doing wrong?
I think it records in HD on the hard disk, but on the DVD it can't.

I have the same system, except for the TV, I have a project (that part doesn't matter).
From your Sat. go straight to your AV receiver
Again from you Sat. (all of the AV outputs are all live), go out from either 1 or 2 and go to your recorder Line 1 in.
From you AV receiver go to your TV.
All you have to do is hit record and you will record whichever channel you are on. I am having difficulty getting it set up as a PVR, but will figure it out sooner or later.
Hope this helped.
