Ilo dvd player wont search high channels

When I do the auto search for channels, it only does up to channel 125, however I have over 200 channels and I cant record on a channel higher than 125. What am I doing wrong. It will not let me put in the channel number any higher that 125. I followed the book step by step am I missing something? Help

Re: ilo dvd player wont search high channels

You can't the amount of channels a dvd, vcr,or tv can select is a function of the tuner, if teh tuner will only accept 125 channels Back in the late 80''s and early 90's when basic cable was expanding and the cabel ready vcr's were just coming out with the auto search tuners they were only 125 channels total if you wanted to pick up the extra channels that cable was putting up in the higher numbers ie (above channel cable channel 45 I belive it was) you had to buy a VCR or TV that had a 181 channel cable ready tuner built in it. Now with satlite and digital cable if you want to record anything higher than what your VCR, or DVD will recive you will have to use the line inputs and record that way from your cable box or through a stereo amp that will let you take the audio off and the video off and put them through teh line inputs of your burner.

At a guess the device will only find channels it can detect. So what is your connection antenna or cable If antenna then all TV is line of sight and directional If cable - only the channel's the cable co supply will come down the wire.

I just need to know how to link up my Allegro DVD/VCR REMOTE CONTROL to my Phllips Magnavox Television.

TUNING This DVD+VCR is equipped with a frequency synthe- sized tuner capable of receiving up to 181 channels. These include VHF channels 2-13, UHF channels 14-69 and CATV channels 1-125. Auto Channel Programming 1. Choose the SOURCE SELECT option, then use b / B to select TUNER. Use b / B to switch among TUNER, LINE1, and LINE2. 2. Choose the AUTO CHANNEL SET option, then use b / B to find channels. • The tuner will automatically cycle through all available channels (TV/CATV) in the area and place them in the tuner's memory. •After the AUTO CHANNEL SET is complete, the TUNING menu will hide and return to the TV screen automatically. 3. Make sure the TUNING BAND is set appropriately (TV or CATV). • TV : If you are using a standard antenna to receive channels. •CATV : If you are using basic cable to receive channels.

Try this from xmarine2847

To reset the recorder to factory defaults as if it was just removed from the box - leave the recorder on then press and hold the channel up and down buttons at the same time until it says "Bye" on the display. When it shows the clock it is off - wait a few seconds then turn it back on - you should see the initial setup asking you to choose a language.

Note: You may have to flip down part of the front panel to reveal the channel buttons.


to return DVD player to origional setings, is to go in to the menu and find the factory reset option the will return the setings back to fresh from the factory.

Wont record or playback picture

Go to the menu. Select "setup". Then "Channel". Let Auto Channel Memory record your channels. I had the same problem and this worked for me.

Connect ILO DVDR05 to a digital set top box tuner

Just run your outputs from your cable to the ILO inputs, then your ilo ouputs to the tv inputs. Use Cable remote to control channels, use ILO source button on remote to access the correct input setting on ILO. AND YES< you have to do this EVERY TIME you turn the ILO on to watch tv.. I have mine hooked up this way to record from my convertor box and My husband hates it.(when he just wants to watch tv.)

Dvd burner

Can you try just running a/v cable from your tv output to the inputs on the ilo, then whatever you watch on your tv you can record on your dvd burner. My new SDTV doesnt have audio out except Coax so this won't work for me on that tv. Why doesnt the newer tv's have audio AND video outputs???

I think you are out of luck, unless you can find someone else who owns one, and will let you use their controller to program a learnable remote. I have purchased, and returned dozens of universal remotes...not one has worked.
