Question about Panasonic DMR-EZ47V DVD Recorder/VCR
How do i connect the cable and av cables to a cablevision cable box and the ez47 to the tv so i can record all channels that the cable box receives including premium channels?
I had the same problem when i first hooked up my machine because I hooked it up as I normally would and not by the diagram provided for connecting a tv, cable box, and dvd player. Once i switched the wires according to the diagram, it worked perfectly. the main thing is that the cable wire needs to hook up to the dvd player directly. then i connected the rest of the cables they way it was in the diagram. I also had to purchase an s cable and extra av cables to get it to work. if you follow the diagram provided, you should have no problems.
Then you need to hit the "input select" button (i think that is what it is called). It is located directly under where you would change the channel on the remote. this needs to be set to INV1 or INV2 according to how you plugged in the AV cables. Then you should have access to all your cable channels. I was able to successfully record something from cable channels and something I had previously recorded on my cable dvr.
Note, I also had problems with the cable freezing when i did this, but I found that if i hit the vcr/tv button at the bottom of the remote and made sure it was on tv (it says "tv" on the panel when on), then it stopped. this caused problems when i was trying to record on my dvr while simultaneously watching a dvd because my cable would freeze and not record.

Connect your TV to AV1 and you SAT/Cable Decoder to AV2.
on the video select the AV2 channel and it will record whatever is connected to AV2. The AV channel selected it is the input the one not selected is the output.
Some PPV Movie channels are copy protected with some service providers. But most channels are recordable.
The aerial lead coming in your house connects to the SAT/Cable Decoder 1st, then connect the output socket on that to the Video/DVD then the output on that to the TV. As long as the leads you use have different ends on you CANNOT plug them into the wrong socket. As the the aerial passes through each device, the device adds its own RF channel to the feed, so you should be able to tune both a SAT/Cable and a Video/DVD channel onto the TV set aside from using AV/Scart.
