Try rescanning for new channels. Some stations changed their Digital transmitter frequencies when they took their Analog transmitters off air. Rescanning will relocate those transmissions.

How do you program tv channels, we could get pbs and now we can't get this station.


The PBS channel may have changed or you may have to repeat channel search to find it again.

TV Guide will not update


The problem is not with your machine. TVGOS information is embeded in part of the a PBS analog signal. With the covnversion to digital, some PBS stations are not sending this data out anymore. Also, some cable companies are not converting the digital signals to be sent out on the old 125 analog channels.

If you try to chase this down with the Cable Companies or PBS techs, you will get; blank stares, help desk happy voices, it's not our problem, we don't support TVGOS, etc.

Personally, I think that the digital transition has killed TVGOS. It ain't comin bak, no more, no more.

Start looking for a replacement DVR that is easy to program.

No, wait, try to find one! Blue Ray along with Cable Company & Dish Network, etc. DVR's have killed the market for a stand-alone DVR's.

But there s always TIVO $$$

How to set the clock on vcr/dvd.


Make sure the antenna//cable TV connections are correct. Channels are set. If this unit is connected to a cable/satellite box, select the local PBS station on them to set the clock automatically.

There's an Auto Clock Setting. "This Unit can set the time and date automatically by reffering to a PBS station.". But I never had to do that, I just went to Setup and it already knew what the date and time was.

"Note: The clock may set itself automatically after you connect the antenna/cable signal and plug in the power cord. Only the analog PBS channel signal is effective for auto clock setting. The unit receives the clock data at 12:00 A.M./P.M. from the PBS channel when the power is off.

1 Press [SETUP] and use the up and down arrows to select "General Setting", then press OK.
"General Setting" menu will appear.

2. Use up and down arrows to select "Clock" then press OK.
"Clock" menu will appear.

3. Use up and down arrows to select "Auto Clock Setting", then press OK.

4. Use up and down arrows to select "Auto" then press OK.

5 Press SETUP to exit.

6. Press STANDBY-ON to turn off the unit.
This unit will search for the time only when the power is off. Leave it off for several minutes to give this unit time to set the clock.

If the unit chooses an incorrect PBS channel, set the PBS channel manually by following the steps below:

1. Select "Manual" at step 4, then press OK.
2. Use [the number buttons] or up and down arrows to enter your PBS channel number, then press OK.
3. Press SETUP and turn off the unit.

If this doesn't work, let me know and I'll type up the instructions for what to do if you need to actually set the clock manually.

Tv guide/tuner problems


Most likely the TV Guide is broadcast from the OTA PBS channel. I don't know why its being lost. I'm thinking its probably a firmware problem of some sort. Adding the PBS channel back in, making sure the signal comes in ok and leaving the TV off for a while might help.
