    Thanks for your help - we've solved half of the problem. I think it's a case of 'fiddling' with the lead combos until we get it right!

Hi i found my own soulution for recording i will tell you an easy way fist of all you need another freeview box only connect this to your archos and have the other box connected like normal to your tv and place your archos and other box near your tv buy a 2 way splitter from wilkinsons and connect this where your ariel box is probably near the window and get another tv lead to reach your freeview box for the archos this means you have a connection running from the tv box for your normal tv and f box and another for the archos and f box cos of the 2 way splitter you can then record on the archos from the f box and watch another channel on your tv then playback later what you recorded of your archos on your big tv please let me know if you sort this and let me no if you get stuck its great when you get it all set up and it works thanks.

How do I record two channels at once on a DMR-EX773EB DVD Recorder


I cannot find on online manual for this model. If dual channel recording an actual specification for the model? If it really should be able to record two channels at once then it may be similar to the DishNetwork DVR. It has one input but internally splits and creates two different outputs for two different channels.
Check to see if there is a mode setting for single/dual. You will need to set it to "dual". The Dishnetwork DVR has what it calls TV1 and TV2. You can record to TV1 but cannot watch a different channel on TV1 while it is recording. You CAN however watch and record a different channel on TV2 while TV1 is recording. (and vice versa). You can also record two shows while watching other recorded shows.
I'm guessing that you may need to look for some recording options to be able to record two channels at once.

Was watching recorded events, left the room and came back to a black screen, with no sound....tried unplugging dvr and back in with no luck...changed tvs still same result


christy39467,

When you had the black screen on your TV, did you have a banner on the top of the screen displaying the channel and information about the channel? If so, then unplugging the receiver from the electrical outlet for 10 seconds and plugging back in will resolve that issue.

If you had the black screen without the banner, it is a different issue. Please let me know if you had any other messages on your TV screen (No signal, weak signal, etc.).

Cannot watch a different channel while recording another channel! What's up with that? We always get a message when we try to switch to another channel after setting up "record" for a particular program....


In order to do this with the 625 you must either place the receiver in single mode or change the Record Plus setting on the receiver.

To change to single mode you will need to pop open the small door on the right front of the receiver by gently pushing three to four inches from the right side of the receiver. Inside there will be multiple buttons press the one labeled mode. The blue light for TV2 will extinguish when it is in single mode and the amber mode light will switch from the duplex tile side to the single tile side.

The drawback to this is that the TV2 location now must watch the same program or something that was previously recorded on the DVR or utilize a peripheral such as an X-box or DVD player.

The other way results in the same outcome but to achieve this it will automatically default all recordings to be recorded at the TV2 location. Press menu on the TV1 remote then 8 - 5. You should now be at the Record Plus setting option. Use the arrow keys on the remote to manuever to the record preference setting and toggle up or down with the up down arrow keys to switch the preference to TV2. Now manuever to the activation option and toggle it to ENABLE in the same manner. Once comple select done and press the View Live TV button.

The reason you cannot watch and record at the same location and still have access to different programming at the second location is due to the receiver only having two tuners which means it only is capable of viewing two seprate programs at any given time. Once they both are in use by either TV1 or TV2 or both are watching independent programming the receiver is no longer able to access further tuners to display additional programs.

I could go into the technical aspects but it would not resolve the issue either. However if you desire this capability at both locations you can check into changing the receiver from a 625 to two 512's which will allow you the ability to so.

I hope this helps you out. Thanks for using Fix Ya and being a Dish Network customer.

Is my Toshiba 27AF42 TV bought in 2002 capable of receiving digital signals? And whether it is or not, how do I integrate my VCR into the TV and my converter box? Right now the TV is hooked up with the...


This is probably way too late an answer, but I just ran across your post. No TV made in 2002 has digital tuning, so you would need the converter box to watch off-the-air digital broadcasts.

To hook up the pieces, take the converter box output and run it to the VCR antenna input jack. Then run the output from the VCR to the TV's antenna input. Leave the VCR and TV both on channel 3 (or channel 4 if that's what you have the converter box output set for).

To watch TV, leave the VCR off and the signal from the converter will pass right through to the TV. You'll do your channel changing with the converter box, so the TV stays on channel 3. To record a program, just remember that the VCR will always need to be tuned to channel 3 (4), since it will have to be on the converter box output channel. Again, you pick the actual TV channel with the converter.

Note that this arrangement will allow you to program your VCR to record while you are out, but there are some limitations. You can't record things on different channels, since you won't be home to switch channels on the converter. The VCR is always recording on channel 3 (4), and the program you'll be recording is whatever channel the box is set for. If another program comes on on a different channel later, you won't be around to switch. But you could program different recording times on the same channel, anyway. You also can't record one program while watching a different channel, unless you had a second converter box.

Hope you can still use the information provided here. If this has been helpful, please take a moment to rate this a fixya. Thanks for asking here!

Record and watch different channels with freesat


I believe that the Humax can only output 1 channel and because it has no built in hdd and twin channel capabilty that is all you can record 1 channel (unlike sky +/sky HD) so that means also that unless you watch a different source (like the picture from your aerial (terrestial channels)) you are stuck with having to watch the channel you record

Watching another channel while recording


Hi there! Sorry but you can't unless you have My Sky/HD recorder. The sky decoder is simply a one channel watch decoder. You can only record a sky channel and watch the channels normally provided via your VHF and UHF aerials connected to the decoder or vice versa.
My Sky fixes that although you cannot record to a dvd disc on this thing and the privilege comes at a price of course!

Watching tv while recording onto vhs or dvd


This could be a couple of problems. I'm not trying to make you feel dumb or anything but sometimes people miss the obvious. Do you have an universal remote? How is your vct wired to your tv? Does your cable go to your vct or your tv first? These sound like silly questions but they are important.
