But I had no such luck...I really need to know how to set up the channels, find the channels, add the channels, and program it to record programs from the channel or channels that I want it to record from, and if i have it pluged into my tv do i change the settings from catv or tv. I really dont know what to do PLEASE help me...Also if u know where i can find an english version of the manual for the sanyo drw-500 I would be most grateful....

Sanyo drw-500 dvd recorder will not recognize channels from antenna in setup

Have you set the Sanyo to "antenna" or to "cable" ?
If you've tried one setting, try the other.

Record mode doesn't work. Information is disrupted. play back is fine have not tried to fix

It could have some garbage, in the processor do to a small power surge, and if you leave it unplug for 40Min., from the wall, it should reset back to normal.

Can we record with our sanyo drw 500 and a digital tv? If so, how do we do this?

If cable/SAT box, hook-up that box video/sound output to DVD video/sound input. If no cable/SAT box, hook-up cable from wall into antenna/cable in on DVD and tune DVD to channel wished, and hook-up DVD TV antenna out to TV antenna in. If DVD has no antenna/cable in, TV must have video/sound output. Hook to DVD video/sound input. Hope this helps.
