Timer recording will only record channel 3

Hello there,

This is most likely because the recorder is connected to a cable box. When setting the timer recording feature with a cable box as the source, you are not actually selecting the channel to record. You are selecting the recording source. The cable box sends all of the channels to the recorder using RF channel 3. In this case, the channel for recording will be whichever channel is selected on the cable box.

To help me give you a more definite answer, please can you answer the following quick questions:

1. Are you using a cable box?
2. If using a cable box, how is it connected to the recorder?
3. What is the model number of the GoVideo recorder, e.g. DVR4000?

How record tv chanels using the DTV converter box? The converter box determines the chanel of interes while the DVD recorder must remain on chanel 3 in my area. My DVD recorder is a combo with a VCR...

Can you connect directly from the DTV converter to the DVD recorder input using RCA phono connector cables? You'll have to select the input on the recorder menu as well.

Timer recording on GoVideo VR2940

First, you need to have the cable directly input into the recorder.

If you only plug the cable box into the machine, you get what is happening now.
After splitting the cable, one side into te box and the other into the recorder, run the channel seek part of the program and it will scan all the channels available on the cable and place them in memory.

Then plug the output of the cable box into the other input on the recorder, and you get yor pay channels and upper tiers.

Your recorder is now a switching unit as well
