It turns out that the DVR has to be on channel 3, and the channels are controlled by the cable box! I somehow had missed that part. With the DVR on channel 3 and the channel being changed through the cable box it is very awkward to try and do any recording unless it happens to be what you are watching, so I have basically given up the whole idea and am planning to return my cable box an go back to basic.

Sylvania LC427SSX worked fine until comcast upgraded the cable box cable modem. TV works with DVD player but not with the cabe box. Could this be a firmware issue that requires me to upgrade the software?


In my area, Comcast has blocked all free watchable basic channels. You now need a very small but special box to receive those. If it's a conventional cable box, you might have to call them to send a signal to reset it.

I have a Sony Bravia KDL-40EX400. Every morning I have to reboot my cable box to get my cable signal. I get the "Unsupported Signal" message and no picture if I don't. I have seen other posts about this...


All symptoms show that cable box is cause of problem, not sure that its internale circuit problem (signal processing in cable box) or its getting distorted signal from cable company.
TV sounds good because it works fine with blu ray player that is HD signal as well.
Change cable box just to confirm it.
I hope this tv would be under warranty so ask nearest Sony service to update its firmware under warranty cover that might fix the issue.
Thanks.

Pioneer works with cable box but not with new blue


HDMI version is 1.3 in your receiver.The current version is 1.3b. I would suggest calling Pioneer cust assistance and see if there is a firmware update. Your unit has a 2 year parts & labor warranty. Their # is 1-800-421-1404 It sounds like a CODEC issue. Hope this helps

Cable box only works during evening hours.


You need to schedule a service call to meter the feed to the house. You signal is lowest during the day since everyone is taking up bandwidth for internet access, thus dropping the signal to unusable levels. Have them meter the feed from their tower to your main panel then from your main panel to the modem or any box. Hope this helps

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!

Picture problem


I have the EXACT same problem with my Sony SDM-P234 23" HD/computer monitor. I know it works (and it works great) with my DVico PCI card with my computer. It outputs in 480i, 480 p, 720p and 1080i with clarity on a simple indoor RCA HDTV antenna. I get the same quality (1080i) picture for the same three seconds as does lewy. I can also add that the digital coaxial output delivers 5.1 audio to my amp and it stays on even after the picture cuts out. Please help.....Comcast sendsa 'technician' out to service it and...well....did I say he's a 'technician'? He changed the box twice and says it must be my equipment. I guess its an act of God that it works with anything else.... I mean....its been checked out by a Comcast 'technician' after all.
