This is a common problem for the Sony RDR-GX7 dvd recorder.
It seems to occur with various remotes (DirectTV, Bell ExpressVu or in your case, the time warner cable remote). In most cases, the problem can be solved by using a different remote frequency from the system menu as follows: Insert a dvd and make sure it is not playing (stopped). Enter the System Menu then / Setup / Options / Command Mode (this can be done from the access panel on the front of the unit). There are 3 possible values, (DVD1, 2 or 3), try changing it.
Then enter one of the suggested codes for your Warner remote (in my case, for Bell ExpressVu I selected the DVD1 command mode and I used 883 as the 3-digit code. The up and down arrows are not functional with this code but I bypass this problem by entering the menu item number. Good luck!
First off, time warner makes decent remotes, but they are cheaply made. If you have a menu and selection button on your box, you can use those to navigate to the menu you need, and set it up. It will probably take longer without the shortcuts, but there are worse things.
try another input,the yellow port is your video port.take the red wire and put on the yellow
port to see if you have a bad cable.if this does
not work connect r
the dvd to another tv. match the yellow to yellow for video
As far as I know, my Go Video machine when there was no box involved...
The cable came from the wall to the IN of the Go Video box. Then another cable coming from the OUT of the video box and to the IN to the TV. TV should be on channel 3. As far as I can remember, I don't need to push the TV/VCR button, but instead, have to channel down to below channel 2 on the TV to the LINE/INPUT selection. Once you go there, and the Go-Video machine is on, you should be able to see a clear picture.
You'll push the TV/VCR button if you want to toggle back and forth from the VCR picture to the TV picture (which will be technically blank since it's on the 'line input selection.)
I have the same model and it works wonderful, but you need the remote control to record. connect cable from video out on recorder to video in on you tv. at least you'll be able to play the dvd. If this doesn't work it's because you need the remote to set the date and time features.
