Why can't I record on my DVR?


Check all your connections and configuration between decoder to DVR and TV. I find it is more practical to use the DMI connectors for this purpose. Between my LG TV, LG DVR, LG Blue Ray Player and Decoder I use 3 DMI connector cables. Ideal for me because my TV has 3 DMI points, I just connect each of 3 items to TV via a DMI cable. Now connect decoder to DVR via video-audio cable (red-white-blue). This setup allows each unit to be used individually (i.e. tv viewing, recording, blue ray playing and when recording live TV the TV can be switched off while recording. Just remember to select the appropriate DMI connected unit on your TV remote (on "input" button).

How to record a program you are watching on your cable satellite receiver.


Hello,<br /><br />Most of the time we watch TV programs with our cable satellite receiver/decoder. And sometimes we would love to record these programs so that we can watch them again. You can learn how to record your TV program while you watching a TV program. <br /><br />All you will be needing is a DVD recorder or VCR (Video cassette Recorder). It all depends on the one you prefer.<br /><br />There are two methods of doing this connection. 1. is RF connection and the other is RCA. But I will start with the RF connection method;<br /><br />This is how is works. Get a RF cord, check the back of your TV, you would see RF in, connect the RF into TV in, then connect the other part to RF Out at the back of the Cassette or DVD Recorder.<br /><br />Turn the Cassette or DVD Recorder and the TV on. Go to Channel 1 or any channel on the TV, search the TV stations automatically or manually in order to get a display of the Cassette or DVD Recorder on the TV. To easily get the Cassette or DVD Recorder's station, play a movie on the Cassette or DVD Recorder while you search for the station. Once you see the display of the movie on your TV, you would easily know that that's the Cassette or DVD Recorder station. <br /><br />Once you have gotten a display from the Cassette or DVD Recorder, save the channel on the TV.<br /><br />Then get another RF cord, connect it to "RF out" at the back of the Satellite/cable decoder/receiver and the other part to "RF in" at the back of the Cassette or DVD Recorder.<br /><br />Now with the Satellite/cable decoder/receiver turned on and the Cassette or DVD Recorder also turned on, press the Cassette or DVD Recorder's channel, you should find search. Scan for channel/stations on the Cassette or DVD Recorder just like you did on the TV and you will find a display of the Satellite/cable decoder/receiver showing on the TV via the Cassette or DVD Recorder. Note that on some Cassette or DVD Recorder, you will have to select "Source" to RF before you can get a display of the channel.<br /><br />Now since the Satellite/cable decoder/receiver program is now showing via the Satellite/cable decoder/receiver, insert a black disc or cassette into the Recoder and press record. The Satellite/cable decoder/receiver programs showing on the TV via the player will be recorded and that would be all.<br /><br />For some recorders that has internal hard drive, you can just press record without inserting a blank disc......<br /><br />USING RCA CONNECTION METHOD.<br /><br />You could also achieve this by using a RCA (yellow, red and white cord).<br /><br />The connection procedure is the same with the RF explained above.<br /><br />Connect the Recorder to the TV. That is, from "Video and audio Out" of the recorder to "video and audio in" of the TV accordingly. Press AV or source on the TV to confirm that there is a display from the recorder on the TV.<br /><br />Now connect the RCA cord to "OUT" from the Satellite/cable decoder/receiver to "IN" at the back of the Recorder.<br /><br />Then, press source on the recorder to "INPUT" (RCA) and the Satellite/cable decoder/receiver's program will automatically display on the TV. <br /><br />While the Program is being displayed on the TV via the recoder, insert a blank disc and press record on the player and it will automatically start recording. You will see the record or record symbol while the recoding is in progress.<br /><br />I hope you understand the above. Please follow steps closely and you won't have any problems.<br /><br />Good luck.

I live in Tahiti and have a coship N6760B digital set top box decoder with sky pacific smart card. I have a 2.3 metre satellite dish with Cband lnbf. From the digital meter point of view I got a really...


Jason478. I would be surprised you are picking up the signal from the Spot beam which Sky Pacific uses. I do not believe even the spill is reaching Hawaii. Best to get a refund of your money as you will definitely loose the signal when the replacement satellite kicks in on Dec 2011. Be careful of the Sales people in Sky Pacific. http://www.intelsat.com/flash/coverage-maps/sat_foot.html?sat=IS-701%20at%20180%BA%20E&display=map&spot=0

My tivo HD is not broadcasting or recording in HD


As far as I know, you need the cable cards to get HD through the Tivo, because they're what does the HD decoding and output.

Is it the DCT or the cable signal?


if you are getting signal of the proper strength and quality the cabling is good.the problem is the box trying to decode the signals.a lot of signals are encripted and have to be decoded by the box.if the box is not responding fast enough you will see bloches on the tv.if you see scrambled channel you are not payinfor that channel.and if you are paying for a channel and it comes up scrambled your box is not working correct.get your company to upgrade the box.
