    Tell us what you're feeding into the digital input, and whether or note this digital feed works with other digital devices.

    You can only feed the Alesis with a digital signal corresponding to its inbuilt digital modes; 44.1kHz to 96kHz, 16 to 24 bit, PCM format.

    If you feed it the signal from (for instance) a Dolby Digital receiver or DVD player (an encoded surround sound digital stream), or a pure digital output from a DVD-A or SACD player, it won't recognise it.

    also, you can try an o.s. reload. not a hd format, just to be clear. everything is controlled by the o.s. . it resides on a small section of the HD. when the HD is formated, the o.s. is untouched and it would also explain why a format may not fix an issue. a format on a ml9600 is not a total disk format.

    so if you have any issues, frflash the o.s. first. if problems persist, then a ned HD may be needed. there is not much when you look inside the ML9600, it is all software/firmware/o.s. driven.

    hope this helps.

How do I set up a tivo series2 to a new digital tv. Do I need analog to digital converter?

Analog to digital converter is for OTA transmission. You are using a cable system, right? If so you have to feed into your Tivo the cable output signal from your cable box and set your tivo to correct rf or video input. Since cable tuner is determining channel all you can do to record is set the channel on your cable unit and program your tivo to turn on and record the input at appropriate time..

Outputs of TI analog 500-5016 do not change when inputs to Ti 520 controller are changed. Mother board consists of power supply , TI 520c controller, TI 500-5016 analog output, TI 500-5009 analog input,...

hi, The VERY first thing we MUST check, is the PSU, check this exhaustively, even if possible replace with a know good, as if this isn't 100% A OK, NOTHING else can be..then well ADC 101 says that if there is NO output from the ADC, then this can only be due to 2 reasons, one, it is Inhibited, two, there is NO DATA to be converted/coming out? We need to find out why?

You need to use a 'scope and view the input and output signals along with the lines that control the IC, data flow, Inhibit etc, and see if all the lines are in the correct logic states, work back along either the control lines or signal, and work out why either it is inhibited or lacking signal.

Also check that you micro, isn't inhibiting it either?

Start at the beginning, where the analog signal is presented, and follow a line(s) along through the circuit with the 'scope, checking where they enter the conversion IC, then look at the Output(s) and see whats what, now if all control lines are set OK, and there is NO output then that IC must be faulty... anyway follow the signal along and see why it's not working..

unfortunately there could be many, many conditions that can cause this type of thing, one simply? must work through each block of the circuit, isolating sections if possible and viewing the activity on a 'scope to see where it all goes wrong. checking the voltage and signal levels are correct.

I have a Panasonic Tx l37S10B tv set, & a PanasonicDVD recorder,DMR-EX768EB. To ensure I receive true HD i have bought a Humax Fox T2 hd Digital receiver. I use these items to receive & record HD...


You didn't fully expain how each device is connected to the others. I don't think you have this set up correctly. Your DVD cannot record in HD so there is no point sending an HD signal to it - it can't process it. This is how I would set it up:

1. Install a 2-way splitter on the input cable
2. Connect output 1 from the splitter to the Humax receiver
3. Connect the Humax receiver to the TV with an HDMI cable
4. Connect output 2 from the splitter to the DVD
5. Connect the DVD to the TV with SCART cable.

This will enable you to watch HDTV via the digital receiver and also provide an input from source (dish/cable) to your DVD player so that you can record.

If you've already set it up this way then it should work. I suspect you've connected the Humax to the DVD and TV and also the DVD to the TV.

Please try this setup and post back if you need further assistance.

Connection/configuration issue: I have a Denon

Just confirming my understanding of your connections :

1). The DVD1800BD output HDMI is connected to AVR3808's DVD-in HDMI.
2). The DVD/VHS recorder output HDMI is connected to AVR3808's DVR-in HDMI.
3). The DVD/VHS recorder input (S-video and L/R Audio) is connected to AVR3808's DVR-out(SVideo and L/R Audio).

What other inputs have been connect to your AVR3808?
Does the recorder have Component Video inputs?

Please also connect DVD1800BD's output(Component video, S-Video and L/R Audio) to AVR3808s' DVD-in similar inputs and try recording onto your recorder.

Actually, its possible that you may be having a HDMI HDCP communication issue(High-Bandwidth Digital Content Protection) with the source product (DVD1800BD). First check with the source equipment manufacturer for any updates to their products.

If HDMI video is not passing through your AVR3808, you can connect it thru the alternate connection method I have mentioned above.

If the connections/recording still does not happen with the added anolog cables, then let me know , we can trouble shoot it further.
I hope the above helps.

Please do rate this solution and thanks for using FixYa!

Panasonic PV-V4021 VCR.

An analog VCR can only be used the same way as an analog TV. You should be able to set the VCR to the converter boxes output channel ( 3 for example) and then set the VCR to record that channel at the correct times. Then just tune the converter box to the correct channel. Please note that if you try this while you are at home (recording one thing while watching another) you will wind up recording whatever is on the channel you change to.

Can't record from tv or disc,

shouldn't need one, If you can't get the tuner source of your ilo to record, try using A/V cables (output) from tv to (Inputs) on ilo. set tv on channel you want to watch and it should come through to the ilo (selecting the correct source input of course) If your tv is really old and doesn't have A/V then you will need RF Modulator. This way of hooking tv up will also work with recording DIGITAL signal from a Digital converter box type tuner (the tuner in Ilo soon to be no longer operatable).

How to record from a VCR onto a canon mv530i

OK get a set of cord that can be used, on the back of most VCR's there is RCA Sockets for Video & Audio out... generally Red & White & Yellow these go to the corresponding inputs on the camera's Video & Audio inputs, OR Correct adapter. The camera must have the correct A/V INPUT selected. Then start the VCR to "Play" the tape, and set the Camera to "Record" this will/should then record the output from the VCR to the memory in the Camera.
