Question about Sony SLV-775HF VCR
I have 2 Sony SLV-775HF that I purchased used (from separate buyers) and they exhibit the same issue. In trying to figure it out, I've hooked up the VCRs using coax and RCA cable, and tried swapping cable boxes. My cable system is WOW cable in Michigan and I have every channel they offer. The cable box on each TV is supplied by WOW, made by Scientific Atlanta, model 'Explorer 3200'. The issue is that the VCR likes to power off or sometimes freeze on (frozen on meaning no button will work on the unit itself or the remote; must unplug to 'reset') when I tune to WOW's upper number channels (which are invariably digital; whereas the low channel numbers that do not exhibit any VCR problems are probably analog). Sometimes if I tune to a upper level channel and the VCR shuts down, I can power it back on and watch with no issues until I tune to some other, upper level channel. Anybody have any insights? Should I just give up and wait for DVD recorders that can handle 1080i/p?
These guys have the owners manual and the service manual for your exact model; http://www.user-manuals.com/advanced_search_result.php?keywords=sony+SLV-775HF+manual&forward=plist&osCsid=a4cf756dbc2b6f254269ca22308687e5 Sorry I haven't been able to locate these for free anywhere, Sony do not have them available online. Here is the link to the Wow cable instructions - i couldn't find much in there but you may see something that helps out, check pages 65-67 to be sure you have everything hooked up right; http://www1.wowway.com/cable/pdf/WOWGuide.pdf Here is the link to the user manual for the explorer 3200; http://www.scientificatlanta.com/products/consumers/new_explorer2200.htm and here for the FAQs; http://www.scientificatlanta.com/products/consumers/FAQs.htm Hope this helps, if you get some more ideas but still no solution, please post back and i can try again :)"
