LG RH1999H won't receive DTV channels from Sony Bravia HDTV.

Since upgarding from SD set top box & analogue tv (rcvddigitalchannels fine to watch & record) to the Bravia HDTV, theLGrecorder won't find/show any digital channels, only analogue. Iamusing an HDMI cable to watch DVD's no problem. When using thesettop box I used regular audio cables with no problemandwatched/recorded on the LG from AV1 input. Now with theBraviaconnected & with HDMI the LG doesn't display anything abouttheHDMI connection for digital TV viewing nor recording. I alsobought& connected composite cables with no success. Maybeultimately thisLG palyer/recorder & Sony don't like each other ?

Try setting the signal on the DVD, and ensure you tried all the input channels on the TV. Try switching input channel with the remote.

If the TV does not even work on composite , the problem is not the HDMI signal.

    If the DVD was working on digital with previous TV, it must work on this one as well.

    After connecting HDMI or composite, ensure that TV input channel is set on HDMI for example.

    If you can watch DVDs through the LG using the bravia, and digital output, but you cannot record or view through LG input from TV, the problem is different. In that case the LG may not support your TV digital output resolution in high definition.

I don't know how to tune the digital channels in my vcr. I can automatically tune channel 2, 9, 10, etc but not 7mate, 99Go etc


If your unit does not state DVB anywhere, either in the manual, or on the unit itself, and there are no options to tune in digital services via the menu on screen (as well as no EPG), chances are the tuner in it is analogue only, hence why you cannot tune digital channels in it. To receive all SD/HD digital channels, you would need to connect an external set top box to the recorder's AV inputs, and record/view them that way. (Set top boxes are cheaper than upgrading TVs and DVD equipment in many cases).

The only positive point here is it didn't cost you a workshop repair fee or a new unit - the user manual as a pdf for this model is available on FixYa if needed.

My problem is I have a dvd player DMR-ES 15 I live in australia is it possible to tune in the new tv stations example seven 2


It is not possible to tune in 7two, channel 11, GO! or similar digital channels with this model DVD recorder, as its tuner would most likely be analogue only. You would either need to upgrade to a model with a digital tuner built in, or purchase an external set top box, capable of SD and HD digital reception, and connect its AV outputs to the respective inputs of the recorder, in order to record the channels you want.

However, being in OZ, those digital channels are available as free to air - all you would need is the appropriate receiver to enjoy them. I recommend a set top box which offers HD as well as SD.

You have probably found out now that you would need to get your digital reception by connecting a set top box to the LG, say to AV1, then select AV1 when making a recording.

Now that we are on digital will the SD-37VB dvd vcr recorder work or do I have to alter a setting to make this happen


If the unit has a built in analogue tuner, the unit itself will still operate as normal, but without the built in analogue channels - to record a TV show, you would need to connect an external set top box to it (SD or HD - or both).

In other words, apart from a separate set top box, if required, there should be no need to change any of the unit's settings if it works as is. I do not believe this model has a built-in digital (DVB) tuner.

Can the Panasonic DMR-EH55 be made to receive digital channels? e.g. via a digital capable TV or a set top box? If not, I suspect it will be obsolete when analogue channels cease this year (in Australia)


If you receive your channels through your local cable company, nothing will change. The DMR-EH55 will continue to work normally.
If you receive your channels with your rooftop antenna you'll need a Digital to Analog TV Converter Box. The unit itself will not receive digital signals directly.

Awa dvd recorder dr711 can this be connected to a set top box


If it's like the DR620 it will only receive analogue from the TV aerial. I connect the AV out connections on my set box to the inlet AV on the recorder and watch and record through the recorder's "rear AV input" selection.

Trying to make DVR work after 2-17-09


I have been able to record down converted HDTV shows on my Panasonic DMR-EH50 recorder directly to the unit's hard drive and/or directly to a blank DVD-R disc.

I do not know of any DTV converter box that can provide the proper codes to the Panasonic DMR-EH50 to allow recording and scheduling of shows using the unit's built in TV Guide menuing functions (the program recording codes are essentially VCR Plus codes in the USA and VCR Video codes in the UK, and this technology was previously owned by TV Guide/Gemstar but was purchased by Macrovision within the past couple of years.)

When the DMR-EH50 is hooked up to standard RG-59/U coaxial TV cable, the cable company provides the specific VCR Plus recording codes, as well as auto setting the time and date information required for the TV Guide recording schedule menus. The VCR Plus recording codes are sent via the cable company through the coaxial cable to the end consumer's recording device. Since Gemstar's VCR-Plus patents are now owned by Macrovision, I am not sure of how this works (or will work) for non-cable/non-satellite customers or if such codes will be made available by Macrovision to record shows when one receives HDTV signals (or down converted DTV signals) from an over-the-air antenna.

Though the DMR-EH50 recorder can only record at Standard Definition (SD) broadcast resolutions, I connect the DMR-EH50 to my High Definition TV using the three progressive scan YPBPR output cables and switch my HD-TV into the YPBPR mode when I want to watch shows from the DMR-EH50.

YPBPR are the analog video signals carried by three color coded component video cables. The green cable carries the Y signal; the blue cable carries the PB signal; and the red cable carries the PR signal. The added benefit of using the YPBPR hookup is that you can 'up convert' a standard DVD disc (non HD Blu-Ray disc) in progressive scan mode to somethin akin to 720p resolution using the DM-EH50 (or any other progressive scan DVD player) to get a better quality image on your HD-TV.

Visually speaking, the same appears to hold true for playback of programs recorded on the DMR-EH50's hard drive even though down converted via the DTV converter box, and when played back on an HD-TV using the YPBPR progressive scan cabling hookup.

I also been able to successfully record programs from the DTV converter box to the DMR-EH50 recorder in both 16:9 wide screen and 4:3 normal aspect ratios, but again only in Standard Definition quality.

For NTSC and PAL formats, the correct aspect ratios for any particular TV (the rectangular height and width of your output resolution for a TV screen) can usually be setup correctly for most any DTV converter box by going carefully through the menus on the converter box. Though the converted DTV often will yield 'better looking TV' than cable, it's certainly not high definition however, as the purpose of any DTV converter box is * not * to yield a High Definition digital TV signal but a lower quality Standard Definition signal for viewing on older SD-TVs.

We must remember that what is happening here is that (by NTSC USA standards), we are transcoding (i.e., down converting) an over the air 1920 x 1080p (progressive scan) High Definition digital broadcast signal, captured by your over the air antenna, back to a Standard Definition 720 x 480 resolution analog broadcast signal (the 720 x 480 resolution is a 4:3 aspect ratio.)

Hope this helps a little -
