Question about Polaroid DRM-2001G DVD Recorder/HDD Recorder
I HAVE HAD THE DRM-2001G DVD HDD FOR WELL OVER A YEAR. RECEIVED INPUT FROM DISH NETWORK HD RECEIVER AND SENT OUTPUT TO MY HDTV READY TV. EVERYTHING WORKED FINE.
ION OCT 4TH I HAD AT&T U-VERSE TV SERVICE INSTALLED. THIS IS A FIBER OPTIC SIGNAL THAT COME INTO THE HOUSE VIA THE TELEPHONE SERVICE. IT PROVIDES BOTH INTERNET AND TV SERVICE. THE SIGNAL COMES INTO THE HOUSE AND IS CONNECTED TO A GATEWAY. THE GATEWAY PROVIDES INTERNET VIA A ETHERNET/WIRELESS CONNECTION. IT ALSO PROVIDES TV SIGNAL TO A U-VERSE TV RECEIVER VIP1200. THE VIP1200 RECEIVES TV SIGNAL ONLY AND DOES NOT HAVE DVR FEATURES OR HD. THIS RECIEIVER IS LOCATED IN MY DEN AS IS THE GATEWAY. THE GATEWAY THEN OUTPUTS TV SIGNALS VIA COAXIAL TO A SPLITTER IN THE ATTIC WHICH SENDS OFF TWO COAXIAL CONNECTIONS. ONE OF THESE IS TO AN IDENTICALVIP1200 WHICH IS LOCATED IN MY BEDROOM AND THE OTHER GOES TO A VIP1216 RECEIVER THAT IS CONNECTED TO MY HDTV READY TV IN THE LIVING ROOM. THE VIP1216 IS A HD RECEIVER AS WELL AS A DVR WITH HD.
NOW I HAVE MERELY REMOVED THE DISH HD RECEIVER AND ADDED THE VIP1216. THE VIP1216 IS CONNECTED TO THE DRM-2001G VIA IT'S COMPOSITE OUT AND THE DRM-2001G IS CONNECTED TO THE TV VIA IT'S COMPOSIT OUT. WHEN THE DRM-2001G IS OFF THE SIGNAL GOES TO THE TV WITHOUT ANY PROBLEMS, BUT WHEN THE DRM-2001G IS ON AND SET TO THE YUV INPUT SOURCE THE PICTURE CHANGES TO A SERIES OF RED, GREEN AND BLUE DISTORTED RIBBONS. I FEEL THAT THE CONNECTIONS ARE CORRECT AS I RECEIVE A PICTURE ON THE TV. THERE MUST BE A SETTING WITHIN THE DRM-2001G TO CLEARE UP THE SIGNAL OUT WHEN ITS ON. I HAVE GONE THRU THE USER'S MANUAL SEVERAL TIMES RECHECKING THE SETTINGS AND CANNOT FIGURE OUT HOW TO CLEAR UP THE SIGNAL. WITHOUT THE DRM-2001G IN LINE I HAVE NO WAY TO WRITE MY FAVORITE SHOWS TO DVD MEDIA.
CAN ANYONE HELP ME WITH THIS PROBLEM. HOPEFULLY IT IS FIXABLE AS THE ONLY OTHER CAUSE COULD BE AN INCOMPATIBLE
PROBLEM WITH THE U-VERSE SIGNAL. I DON'T THINK THIS IS THE CASE HOWEVER BECAUSE THE SIGNAL FROM THE UVERSE RECEIVER PROVIDES FOR A CLEAR PICTURE WHEN THE DRM-2001G IS OFF. ALSO I HAVE ONE OF THE VIP1200 RECEIVERS HOOKED UP TO ANOTHER DVR IN MY DEN AND IT RECORDS FINE.
THANK YOU FOR TAKING THE TIME TO READ THIS AND I LOOK FORWARD TO YOUR SUGGESTIONS.
PS: PLEASE PARDON THE U/C LETTERS AS I HAVE NUMBNESS IN MY LEFT HAND AND HAVE DIFFULITY WITH THE SHIFT KEY.
1. the the 1216 is a DVR and recordings get encoded sometimes you are able to get it off sometimes you are not. But you need to have a cables running to your tv from the vip1216 and cables running to your DRM-2001G. Granted when you do so, you may lose some quality becuase the picture/sound is being divided between both the tv and the DRM-2001G. That should work for you, if it does not then its just not compatiable with each other also ATT offeres a fee based service that will set it up for you becuase standard support does support that sort of thing.
