Question about RCA DWD490RE
We no longer have DirectTV. We purchased the DWD490RE unit because my husband recorded footage of himself on various TV shows. We tried connecting the unit to a projector and are able to get to the general menu screen. But we keep getting a message that the unit is attempting to connect to a satellite, which we doesn't exist. Is there a way to bipass the satellite connection and or copy the recorded content from the unit another way?
Make sure the cables that used to run from the satellite are still connected even though u dont have directv, the unit will still download any software updates it needs. if the dish is no longer available, wait until the dvr is trying to aquire satellite info before u hit the menu button. it will allow u to watch saved recordings while it searches for a signal. Also you can plug a dvd recorder to the unit and transfer recordings to dvd
