Question about Televison & Video

Sony Bravia 37" LCD Tv c.1 year old, Sky standard box, Sony HXD890 DVD HDD recorder. Simply replaced old DVD player in circuit. Started Easy Setup routine on new 890, went for ***, wife switched off everything (890 manual says not to!) X factor final not recorded, life hell! Please can somebody talk me through setup, and let me know which remotes I can put in the drawer - before, all ran from Sky remote. Many thanks in anticipation (and hope!!) Brian, Berks

    Hi guys - the universal remote is the least of my problems! I need advice on how to connect it all together and configure.

  • bitaylor Dec 21, 2008

    Thanks for that, but still no joy - still cannot view the DVD HDR menus or even play DVDs. It can't be that tricky,can it??

    The models are KDL 37 P3020 Bravia TV, and RDR HXD 890 DVD Recorder. Standard Sky box (Pace) and only Sky input.

    OK,
    first unplug TV and dvd recorder from AC outlet and put hdmi cable as follows...
    at rear side of TV, you have 2 hdmi inputs, hook hdmi cable in any one of them and other end of hdmi cable will be hooked in hdmi out of dvd recorder rear side.
    Now, plug both units in AC outlet and power up, go to TV menu > hdmi setup > and perform device list update.
    TV will recognize dvd recorder and you will see dvd recorder logo screen.

    Let me know if you need further info / help.

This is my set-up; disconected my VCR as I never used it anymore.
I have a DVD-Player and that is connected to AV1 on my TV
TIVO:
Scart 1: TV out (goes to AV2 on TV)
Scart 2: SKY in**
Scart 3: DVD-R*
DVD-R
AV1: nothing*
AV2: TIVO*
SKY
AV1: Nothing
AV2: TIVO**
Record/view from SKY I do through TIVO (press VCR button on TIVO
remote to view DVD-R)
You need to change the output from the DVD-R to composite (NOT RGB)
Two changes can be made to my set-up.
1. You can connect your AV1 on your DVD recorder to your TV to have
direct viewing (RGB is possible then)
I don't do this because my DVD-Player is on AV1
2. Connect AV1 on your SKY with your AV1 on the DVD-R, for direct
recording without going through your TIVO; this can already be
occupied by your video, of course
i don't do this because this way it is very convienient; I record what
I want with TIVo in Best Quality and leave the box on. At the same
time I set my DVD-R to record from TIVO.
Although there is a small quality drop compared to direct connection,
it is barely noticable (to be honest: I don't see any difference)

I have just bought a samsung lcd tv with 1 scart socket. But I have a satellite box and an hdd recorder but I dont know how to connect it all up. Could anyone help. Thank you


Hello,

The Sky box should connect to the TV using it's TV Scart output.

The HDD recorder then connects to the SKY via the other Scart.

When you turn the HDD recorder on, the SKY box will automatically switch.

You need to put your normal antenna into the HDD recorder and tune it in.

When the Sky is off, you can use the HDD recorder for playback, you can also switch between the 2 when it is on with the Sky remote.

Both dubs were perfect.
