In upstate N.Y. I know that when you go to buy the converter boxes that if you don't know to ask the store for a converter box that picks up the canadian channels as well as the american channels, the store won't tell you. You end up with a converter, half a converter I feel. Make sure you ask for the right one if you watch canadian tv.

The EPG is the electronic program guide trying to download TV listings.

This is normal for this player. To disable this, you would need to turn off the TV guide function.

Are you in the UK? Is the new DVD player compatible with TV in your area?

Some technical details like make and model would be helpful.

DVR-440HX EPG problems


Hi,

You could try looking on Pioneer's web site to see if a firmware download is available. This sort of thing can happen as time and technology moves on, a firmware update can be like giving your machine a bit of an upgrade and often rectifies issues like this. As for channel four and 5 doesn't everybodies EPG behave like that? I think it's to do with bandwidth in the digital signal, quite often you will notice that groups of channels will be affected at the same time these usually share the same area of bandwidth.

Regard, James

You have to select the correct External Input, on TV, you do NOT use "Channels" Then select correct format either NTSC or PAL, turn on camera to play, then you should be OK.

Recording from guide plus


Recording from the guide requires that the unit be off to receive guide info regularly and copy it to the HD. If your reception is poor or your DVD on time is too great, the guide will not have any info, and the recording be nameless, except for channel and time info. You can force the EPG mode by removing the power plug from the back of the unit, but only do this after you have turned the unit off! While copying the guide to the HD, the display shows EPG while th unit is off, and you will hear the HD cycling.
