Question about Allegro DVD/VCR ABV511

Comcast Digital Conversion box (cable TV)

I am having problems taping a TV program after I added the Comcast Digital Conversion box. Everything worked fine until I added the Box. I can tape only on Channel 4. The VCR is an Allegro ABV341. I am only using coax from the wall to the Box, from the Box to the VCR and then to the TV. Any suggestions? (I only use the VCR portion of the Combo VCR+DVD unit).

You will have to split the signal before it goes into the digital box. The digital box is not allowing the analog signal to go to your vcr so you will only be able to record what you are watching on the cable box (on channel 4). If you split it, you will get all your analog channels back on your VCR (the way it was before the box was added).

Is it digital? will I need a converter box?


The conversion to digital affects off air reception. Since you have Comcast analog cable, you will not be affected until Comcast decides to discontinue analog cable, which is not likely any time soon.
When that day comes, your old VCR will probably grace a landfill anyhow, and you will need a converter box from Comcast.

Product DMR-EH50, UNABLE TO DOWNLOAD TV GUIDE ON SCREEN SYSTEM.


I think I may have the "answer".

I am in Atlanta and have a Panasonic DVR that was working fine and sometime during the past month or so we lost the channel listings. I've tried many resets as well with negative results.

I called Comcast tonight. The agent helping me took a long time to research the issue and gave me this answer (which sounds reasonable). By the way, this is for the Atlanta area and may not be applicable to other areas of the country.

Due to delays in the conversion to broadcast digital and the fact that Comcast is experiencing bandwidth issues, they have digitized the "channel listing" signal. By mid-June Comcast's signal will be all digital and you won't be able to watch a TV connected directly to Comcast cable - regardless of whether it has digital or analog tuner (or both). This is contrary to what I'd heard before.

After mid-June, you'll either need to use a cable box OR what she called a "Digital Transmitter Adapter" (let's call it a DTA). Prior to being converted to "full" digital, you'll get notification from Comcast. She said I'd be able to get 2 DTAs at no charge (I currently have one Comcast HD DVR box). Additional DTAs would be $1.99 a month. DTAs will only provide access to the "basic" cable channels, but the good news is that the Panasonic DVR should be able to obtain its channel lineup through this DTA box.

If you have any questions, please feel free to contact me directly at richard_gladney@yahoo.com

Good Luck!

Try this..Run cable line into VCR in, cable from VCR out to box, then cable from box to TV..this might work...I have done this for YEARS and it is never failed. You can then watch and record 2 things at once.

I have a new TV Model 47PFL3603D/F7 and am hooked up to comcast digital box and cannot figure out how to get my comcast remote to regulate the volume. I have the set on channel 3 and everything works...


Usually on a universal remote (after programmed) the volume is controlled by pressing the cable button then adjusting the volume. When you turn your tv on by pressing tv power---then flipping through the channels by pressing cable--channel up or down. The remote (in my experience usually only controls the volume while in the cable mode)

Durabrand DU1901 digital ready?


The digital Cable conversion only effects those who still get their TV channels through an antenna or rabbit ears. If you get it through a cable provided like Comcast, you SHOULD be fine. For more information, look at the FCC website.

Happy viewing :)

Is the Comcast box digital? and is it a Scientific America 8000 series box?

If so, try unplugging the power to the cable box for a minute, replug and after the reboot see if that fixes the problem...
