DVD recorder can't find guide plus host channel

I have a sony dvd recorder HXD890 which is connected to a sky+ HD box. I use to have just a standard sky digital box and guide plus worked fine with this. Since upgrading i have not received any new listings i also have a analogue aerial the analogue aerial is contected into the sky box aerial in and into the dvd's analogue aerial in and then the tv is connected to the analogue aerial out with Scart leads from the dvd to both the sky box and tv. I keep getting a on screen message saying that guide plus could not find host channel. I have tried setting the host channel to automatic, manual tv to ITV manual to sky eurosports channel 410 and Eurosports hd channel 412 leaving each setting for 24 hours but none of these work. I have tried the aerial direct to the dvd recorder, but nothing works. It is really annoying as it worked with the old sky box. I live in a area that doesn't receive freeview so can't use the digital guide. When i switch the dvd to standby it does show epg and also changes the sky channel but nothing downloads Can anyone please help?

SOURCE: sir I have just acquired

Thanks, but no thanks, in the long run it is better to get a technician in to sort it, more expensive yes, but not so traumatic as trying to deal with someone by typing in answers to questions, the man I dealt with assured me I had two scart plugs on my TV. I only have one, so he said it can't be done, end of story.

Is your recorder hooked up to the new convert box for digital antenna reception?
I am currently researching the convert boxes for my dvd recorder. I found that some dvd recorders already have digital converter boxes already installed. This might be the case for you.

SOURCE: Have Warning message on DVD 'Your Guide Plus has not received TV Listings. Check your host channel.' What do I do?

Symptoms / Customer Description
TV Guide issues.
Example:
1. Not getting the correct info, or no information.
2. TV Guide giving double channels.
3. TV Guide grid comes up but no information.
[Primary Symptom Code: 118X ]

Solution

TV Guide information comes from the Host Station.

1. If no information on some channels or incorrect information not TV issue, but station not giving any information or incorrect information.

2. If grid comes up, but no TV Guide Info could be
siginal issue.

3. Double stations showing up. Unfortunately double listing is the way it's going to be. They have to send out all possible OTA listings for the area. You can hide the channels that you are not getting.

For these type of issues
Please have the customer call our Customer Support Line 800-222-7669
Our Call Center Rep. will fill out an investigation form with data pulled from the TV. These reports will be sent to Gem Star for their investigation, and the Call Center will get
back to the customer.

I have a samsung42 inch flat screen and a dvd and a sky plus box and avhs recorder could show me how to do the set up connections please


If you have a blueray or HD DVD player I would connect using a gold plated HDMI cable from the TV to the DVD, make sure that you buy the correct HDMI version for your TV. If you don't have a HS DVD player recorder then use a HQ SCART as below.

Most SKY+ boxes still have a SCART connection I suggest that you buy a HQ gold plated ribbon connector to connect the SKY to one of your AV (audio visual) channels. The benefit of using SCART is that it will autoselect the AV channel when SKY is taken out of standby.

You will not need to connect using co-axial cables these are pretty much redundant now as you can get all your channels through your SKY dish.

Also if you live in a poor reception area and your TV has freeview built in SKY is your better option.

I have recently bought a sky plus hd box and want to connect an external dvd recorder to it(Sony). Followed instructions but it will not pick up a signal from the hd box by the way I live on the costa del...


if you connect the dvd to the tv using scart socket 2 (av2) it should send a signal to the dvd, depending on the make/model of tv, you also may have to set the av2 output in the menu.
Alternativly, connect the sky to the dvd input and the dvd output to the tv, this should also work.May have to watch the tv with the dvd on set to av.

How do i connect dvd recorder to tv only receiving sky channels through skybox


If you have two scart sockets on your tv,then connect a scart from av1 on the dvd into the tv,then connect a scart from the sky box into av2 on the dvd,your recording channel on the dvd will be av2.
If you only have on socket on the tv,then connect a scart from av1 on the dvd into the sky box,your recording channel will be av1,connected like this you may have to turn off the sky to watch dvd`s.
