Question about LG DR787T DVD Recorder
I recently bought a DVD recorder with a digital tuner that I hooked up to my antenna and very old analog TV. (I do not have cable.) It was working beautifully but now I only get a signal on Channel 66 (which is in Spanish.) I don't believe that I changed any settings or connections. What happened? I would really like to be able to watch TV once in a while.
Here is how my system is hooked up:
antenna--->DVD/VCR combo--->RF modulator--->TV
All the connections are tight and I'm getting power to all the components (can't tell about the antenna though).
I would appreciate your help. Thanks!
My DVD player is an LG RC897T.
You do not need to use an RF modulator if you have a LG DR787T. It will output the program on channel 3 or channel 4. If you have another recording machine, I think you may need to re-scan for the stations.
It is also possible that you need to use the remote to switch from the analog (66 only?) stations to the digital stations.
If using a 787, press HOME, select TV & press ENTER, the channel list menu appears. With the highlight on the top of the list, use the < and > arrow keys to select from: TV, DTV, Favorite, or ALL. This lets your pick whether you want to see digital, analog, favorites with the "HEAR" symbol, or all stations.
I think that there is a selection on the Panny that works much like the TV/VCR selection on a videotape recorder. Your machine is receiving and decoding digital stations, as you stated you can see them on the menu screen, but is not passing them through to your TV set for viewing. To use the Panny as a tuner for live TV shows, or actually, programs currently airing, you have to tune the TV to channel 3 or 4, or, if using the Red/White/Yellow connectors, the proper video input selection, AND turn the Panasonic on, and have it sending the programs it is receiving out on the antenna connection or the video/audio out (RWYellow) connections. It is really a matter of selecting, on the Panasonic, whether it passes through the antenna signals, or the digital signals that is is receiving.
