Pioneer DVD Recorder - can get picture but no sound

Hi, I have set up our new pioneer DVR 520 H-S (hardrive recorder) through our Yamaha receiver - have followed exactly as the manual told me to set it up. That is: Output of cable box is going to the input of the DVD. We have optusnet cable. I can get picture but cant get sound. Would appreciate any help I can get! Thanks very much regards Dave

Re: Pioneer DVD Recorder - can get picture but no sound

If you are using RCA cables, you need to hook up three cables (1) yellow video, (2) white - left audio, (3) red - right audio.

Can irecord on my dvr 220 pioneer from my new freeview tv

Yes you can do this. You just need to make sure that the TV outputs its picture on the scart lead that you have connected to the Pioneer unit, and you need to set the Pioneer unit to record from that scart input. Once this is done, it will be able to record whatever you have on the screen. Be aware though, if you turn off the TV it stops outputting its picture to the recorder, and if you change channel, it changes what what the recorder see's too. I hope this helps you. :)

The EPG is the electronic program guide trying to download TV listings.

This is normal for this player. To disable this, you would need to turn off the TV guide function.

Digital audio problems

Try using a different cable for starters, regular rca, another optical or coaxial. If the optical works, then its a cable problem. If the coaxial works(and another optical doesnt), then its a cable/jack problem. If the RCA works(and the rest don't), then its a problem with the digital output. Try blowing into the holes, and if nothing works and you can't find any other advice, contact Pioneer. Good luck
