Correctly connecting TV/Sky box and DVD Recorder

I have a Sony TV model KD-V32A12U
A sky+box and a Sony DVD Recorder model RDR-HXD 890b
How should all these be connected so I can receive both terrestrial and satellite programmes and be able to record both. We have both Sky dish and terrestrial aerials and receive analogue signals from our transmitter. Your help would be much appreciated. Thankyou

Step by step

There is a ANT IN on the sky box put the ant in there.
Hook your sky box direct to TV

When you want to record turn off your sky box switch the channels to the disired station you wish to record.

You DVD recorder if that is where your recording should record whatever station its put on. Remember to turn your sky box off if you want just to record analog.

Thank You

    Well you need to follow the color code on the tv and recorded as I said, Also you need to turn off your sky box in order to record channels over the air. If this even kinda help you can you rate it so we can get credit for it. Have you tryed what I recommended?

Just hook each up to a different video channel (input) on the back (and side if needed).

and use the video/input button on your remote to switch between the two.....

you can get a really good universal remote to make this all easy and functional.......go to radio shack and get the one I use ("RadioShack GamerPro")..........It'lll run anything, plus you can program it to learn functions from other remotes too!....This way you only need to use 1 remote, instead of 3 or 4!...

http://www.sony.co.uk/support/en/product/RDR-HXD890/downloads/FW_DVDR_124 Make sure the ribbon cable going to the laser head from the main board is seated correctly at both ends. Use a scope to verify signals present at the input to the laser. If not then find where it stops on the main board. If it is present then replace the laser mechanism.

Connecting DVD recorder to TV and SKY box


A simple solution - aerial input socket error - wrong socket!!

There are too many choices on the DVD record/play machine. When the plug came out - it was pushed back into the wrong socket.

I lost DVD Sony RDR-HXD 870 insructions. Could you possibly send it to me electronically?


Hi here is a link to Sony manuals downloads

http://support.sony-europe.com/manuals/index.aspx?site=odw_en_GB#m=RDR-HX870

It seems to be only available in Slovenian (probably only produced for that region?)

On right side of page select from drop down box 'home video', second drop down select 'dvd recorder' then in third drop down you should see your model number RDR-HX870 (without D). Download is 3.16mb.
Hope that helps and you can read Slovenian?
