    The Digital Converter Box Receiver Digital to Analogic you mentioned has only RF Antenna connector an not IF SAT Connector. How can it be possible that I connect the cable that come from Dish and then a cable from the Digital Converter to Antenna In from my DVR70?

    Can I change the SAT channels from my DVDR70 remote control or I have to do it with Digital Converter´s remote Control?


    Regards,



    Carlos

I don't know who you are being fooled by.
There's no chance that SAT chanels wil be encoded by any receiver other than DVB-S. You can build an encoder yourself, but buying the DVB-S receiver vould be easier, and cheaper. To be able to use the existing remote, you'll need some electronical knowlege to ad additional coded IC to be able to recognise the sygnals sent by your original receiver. all your situation requires quite much work, and would be cheaper to purchase SAT receiver with remote.
But if you still want to go for it drop me a line, and I'll give you some more info and materials.

Best of luck

These signals are digital so you need to decode them to analog with a converter box that changes digital to analog, there is no other way to get the full spread of channels.

    if you have a converter box, the channels can only change via that remote.

It is possible that the built in DVB tuner of your DVD recorder has failed, since your TV still has its DVB receiver working fine. I suppose if you have tried to reset the recorder numerous times, and it still has not found any DVB channels, then yes, the DVB tuner has died - probably not economical to replace that as a separate component, since it is hard-soldered to the motherboard, making the overall replacement cost-prohibitive.

But if you want to do so, you can submit your recorder to any authorised DVD service centre for a quote, as well as a detailed description of the problem(s) (assuming the tuner is found to be the culprit); this will help you to make an informed decision as to whether to go ahead with the repair or not. Up to you.

Presuming your unit works otherwise, you should not need a new one (but an external set top box connected via the recorder's inputs may be required if you need to record channels) - but get a couple of quotes from service centres FIRST before doing anything else ((you can always say no to the quotes if they are too high).

I have moved to Greece and brought my tv with me. It works perfect as a tv but cannot use the freeview box. Is there something that has to be done to the tv to allow it to be used in Greece or is that...


if greece has dvb transmissions broadcasting then it might be able to be used. But if they dont, then i am afraid its useless, you dont say what country you have moved from, but wherever it is you wont receive the channels you got back home on it anyway. Only channels you will receive are greek channels. Try entering the menu on the tv and tell it to autoscan for analogue and digital channels and see if it picks up anything. If you want the channels you had back home , your only option would be to purchase a sat reciever and use that

Denon avr-1804/884, speakers Bose vcs center, Bose acoustimass 5 series 3 speaker system, Bose 201 series 4. All speakers play in test mode, with tuner, dvd, phono, cassette. The left side speakers will...


You don't say how "TV audio" is entering the system.

My guess is you're using analog audio Out from the TV into an analog input on the Denon. One channel failing would probably be the Left Channel cable failing or not seated.

I always recommend bypassing the TV audio entirely if the programming comes from somewhere other than its own antenna, as TV audio electronics add nothing good to the process.

If you're using cable box, sat box, game, whatever, ITS audio is best sent directly to your Denon's specialized audio hardware - digitally, if possible, to preserve multichannel possibilities.

You could also run standard analog audio from the cable box to the TV analog Audio IN if you just want to watch news and weather on TV speakers without the Denon involved.

Can I install a TV Tuner Card into my MD7818U


It has nothing to do with hard drive space. What kind of expansion slots are available on the computer?
The newer TV tuner cards are most likely AGP or PCI-E. Unless you have a vacant slot for one of these cards, the answer is "no."

Loose sound when changing channels


If your using HDMI. The HDMI technology in version 1.1 & 1.2 was riddled with problems. Check your owners manual for version.Or, try the Coaxial Digital or optical output from your sat receiver to your Yamaha receiver, go into "GUI" "Menu" not sure which on the HTR series and Lock the audio input to Coaxial or Optical on CBL/SAT. Then Test. If it still has issues, check the settings for Audio on the SAT receiver and make sure they are correct. If you still have a problem, use a standard RCA from the sat receiver to the Yamaha. At this point audio should be rock solid on analog. Look on the back of your DSS receiver for the model # & write it down. Then go into the units menu "SAT" and check it's firmware version for version and date. It may need an update. Go to your Sat's website, Directv or Dishnetwork and go to support, enter model # and look for any updates that may apply. Hope this helps

No channels after scanning analog cable on Hauppauge 1600


I have exactly the same problem with the very same equipment but I may have found a solution. Try scanning for DVB-T channels and you may find some success. I also recommend printing up the WinTV user manual and reading it. I'm not big on reading manuals but this one actually has a lot of useful info. I will try to fix my setup and let you know if it works. Today it is recording all 6 Star War episodes till 2 am plugged in through the set top box (can't interupt)

Get closed captions on some channels, but not all, even though it is CC


RCA have choices for different methods of CC in user CC menu. Labelled T1, T2, etc. . Different selections are for different types of close caption. Tune to a signal (on your other TV) that has closed caption working.

Tune your RCA to the same signal. Change the T1,T2, etc settings until the closed caption for your signal appears.

If this doesn't work, try connecting analog video or VHF channel 3 (or other specified channel) to the TV. check CC. When TV stations, sat channels, sat receivers, cable boxes etc, convert analog video signals to HD, problems can result. Some equipment causes RCA TVs to do unexpected things with sound and closed caption.

If you use RF or video output, old analog video may look better on CH3 or video than on HD input and the CC will work more consistently. Watch HD signals on HD input, Analog signals on Video in or through the TV tuner . Many HD channels and programs are converted analog video and look poor on TV HD inputs.
