Question about iLO DVD Recorder DVDR05

1 Answer

Dvd burner My tv is set to work on channel 72 for Dish. When I put it on channel 3 or 4 to use the dvd burner, turn the dvd burner on, and the blue screen comes on. I press the "source" button until it says "tuner," and it usually works. However suddenly it's stopped working. If I press the source button and chose channel 72, it now says no signal. But if I select channel 73, the audio comes on without picture and the screen says "no signal." I have replaced the cable and tried different RF Modulator. Nothing seems to work. What could it be?

Re: 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???

Why if my antena is hooked to my dvd player is it not getting channels but my tv is if dvd player is turned off

The reason probably is because all broadcast TV is digital, and the em-55 tuner is set for analog channels. It cannot receive today's broadcasts "thru the air" because channel 2 for example is not broadcast, rather channel 2.1, 2.2, etc.

You can use the signal with a new TV, but when you turn ON the em-55, it inserts channel 3.
Most all TV here has what I call sidebands, and some have as many as 11, so the tv can be set for 3.1, or 3.2 or 3.3.

Even if you have a digital-to-analog device, the em-55 will not receive any .1, .2, .3, .4 and so on. I verified this recently reconnecting my old antenna to the converter then to several VCR's and DVD players.

Turn off the em-55, and the dot channels pass through the RF connectors..
Some DISH, cable direct TV receivers convert the signal to ch 3.

you need to hook the dvd recorder up to the dish net work, yellow to yellow port, red to red port, and white to white port.
the dvd recorder should have had a book in with it to show you how to hook it up

What channel does the tv have to be on - I have dish network - do I leave the dish off or on and move it to a certain channel?

First check what channel or input your TV is currently on bypowering the TV off then back on and noting the channel or input that appearson screen when the TV is powered on. If you are using a Coax Cable toconnect the receiver to TV1, check the receiver's back panel for the outputname. If your receiver has a "TV CH 3/4 out" (non-ViPReceiver): Tune TV to channel 3 or channel 4, if it has"Home Distribution" output (ViP Receiver): Tune TV to channel 62or 75. If using non-Coax (RCA, Component, or HDMI) to connectreceiver to TV1, cycle through the inputs until picture appears. In your casesince you have the Toshiba XDE500 connected between the receiver and TV, tuneTV and component to channel 3/4 (coax) or correct input. Hope this helps, andhank you for being a valued DISH Network customer!

Hitachi DV-PF 2U dvd player works fine when hooked directy to TV (channel 3) but won't work when connected through the new COX digital cable box. TV is set to channel 4, dvd player turned on, disc...

If the cable box needs to be set to 4, the TV will need to be set to 4 as well as the dvd player. The hookup should be cable box to dvd player to the TV for your system to work. Let me know if you have any other questions. Thanks.

Picture is blue. Just connected to JVC TV with Dish network. It plays with good sound, but picture remains blue and grainy. Thanks!

Hello!!! My name is Becki Barned, with DISH Network customer service!! I hope this has already been resolved for you, but if not, here are some simple troubleshooting steps. I enclosed a link for cabling, from our website. The issue here could be caused by a cable ending up in the wrong spot accidentally. Also, I would try to unplug the receiver from the power source for about 10 seconds. And also make sure that your tv is on the correct channel. Tv1- channel 3 or 4, and sometimes an input such as video 1 or 2. Tv2- channel 60 or 73. If this has not been resolved, and you are still having problems, please email me at

I've had a number of vcrs and vcr/dvd players over the years. But for some reason, I cannot set up this machine. I set up all of the cables exactly like I always have and the way that is instructed, but I...

These days the video input channel depends on the TV and any other equipment in the sequence. I've seen component video come in as Line, Channel 3/4 (with a switch on the video device), Aux1, Ex1, AV1, Channel 60 (I think that may be specific to satellite dish receivers). If the remote has an input button, try that (alternatively, look in the menu for source options). One thing to try: press the PSCAN button on the DVD remote (to toggle off the Progressive scan).

On some TVs the channel for the video is reached by going down from Channel 2 (this works when no channels are programmed into memory and the intervening channels are skipped).

What TV are you connecting to the DVD/VCR player? (If it is an older TV and any external device was connected to either channel 3 or 4, check that the TV works with any input device. I had a 19 year old TV (coax in only) that was damaged and no external device worked.)

I wish that I could be of more help.

You don't say what TV you have so it's impossible for me to guess what the connection it is that you are using. You will not see a signal on any of the channels you will need to select AV or Mode or Input or something similar on the TV

How do you hook up the dvd player to the tv with a vcr hooked up to the tv

Leave the cable box powered on but disconnected from the TV or VCR. All other components should be disconnected and unplugged, giving clear and easy access to all connections. If components sit in an entertainment unit, make sure all A/V cables can reach the RF modulator and the cable from the modulator can easily reach the television.
  • Step 2 Hookup the first coaxial cable from cable box output, usually labeled "TV," "TV out" or "Out to TV" to the cable "In" on the VCR. Connect the second coaxial cable from the VCR's out to "TV" to the coaxial input on the RF Modulator.
  • Step 3 Connect the third coax cable from the coaxial cable "Out" jack on the RF Modulator to the coax cable "Input" on the television.
  • Step 4 Take one A/V cable, connect the red (right audio channel,) white (left audio channel) and yellow (video) from DVD player's "Output," to the corresponding DVD "inputs" on the RF Modulator. Place components as desired but still disconnected from power. Plug in all power cables including the RF Modulator's into the surge protected outlet strip.
  • Step 5 Make sure the Channel select switch usually found on the back of the VCR and the Channel select switch on the RF Modulator are both set to Channel 3. This channel is used on the television to view your components.
  • Step 6 Turn on the power strip and turn on the TV. Cable reception should come on as usual. Set the TV to Channel 3 and turn on the VCR. With VCR on test it by playing a video tape. The RF Modulator should sense the signal and automatically switch to "VCR."
  • Step 7 Switch off the VCR and with the television still on channel 3, turn on the DVD player. As the RF Modulator senses the DVD player signal and switches to DVD, its welcome screen should be seen on the television. Play a DVD to test and once you're done with the DVD turn it off and the cable should come back on.

    My tv has several video inputs & this is the way I did mine. I ran the red,white & yellow cable from the dish box to "video 1" on the tv. For the Magnavox I ran a coax cable from the dish receiver out to the rear of the Magnavox & the red,white,yellow from the magnavox to the tv "video 2". Check the dish box to see if the switch in the back reads channel 3 or 4 & set your magnavox to the same. Make sure in the setup you have it set to rear connections. If you have picture on both video settings on the tv everything is golden. Hope this helps.

    Record tv with Panasonic DMR-E75V DVD Player / VCR

    Not sure about this, but my guess would be that you don't have the correct channel set on the DVD recorder. It has to be the channel that you use to receive your signal, NOT the channel that you necessarily want to record. For instance- if you use channel 3 to receive your signal from dish, cable etc but want to record a program on (hypothetically) CBS which is (again hypothetically) channel 24 from your dish or cable provider you would go to "Prog/Check" on the remote, highlight the "New Timer Program" line and press "Enter", and then use the numeric buttons to select channel 3 (the channel you use to receive your signal, NOT 24, the channel you want to record). You will have to program your dish/cable box to provide the channel with the content you want to record, in this case- 24.
    Not sure if that was your issue, but hope this helps.
