Re: no program information on my sony HDX 560

I had this problem. I found that when you record from the EPG it can change quite frequently. When this happenes then your recording will automatically get deleted. To sort this out I would use the Guide plus system on your box and then the problem wont occur any more

How do I record a programme on my new Sony smart tv

i am trying to figure out what you are asking, you asking how to record a program on your smart tv, but i sony dvd & blu-ray play.
the sony dvd & blu-ray player can only play recorder material.
the smart tv assume has streaming video rite, you would need a program like dish, cox, other types of providers, dvr, this device needs program, that can store the movies or shows, hard drive or storage device, i guess i need more information, if you are wounder how to get inter net you would need a provider and than you have streaming video, recording device that can store the information you want to watch later we call a DVR. in order to get to the setting for on line or internet you have to go into setting and look for internet options or under streaming, online configuration,

need additional information, equipment,

you could look at some videos on how to set up smart tv programming by going to

Locked out of the menue ,Need to reset command mode

Indeed, I did the same thing.... I did find the answer in the manual!
Here's a copy of it (pg 23):

Set the command mode for the remote so it matches
the command mode for the recorder you set above.
1 Hold down ENTER
2 While holding down ENTER, enter the
command mode code number using the
number buttons.
Command Mode Code number
DVD1 number button 1
DVD2 number button 2
DVD3 number button 3
3 Hold down both the number buttons and
ENTER at the same time for more than 3
4 Let up, press RETURN, all done!

Command mode change disabled remote

According to Sony, if you turn the power on and hold the Enter key and the #1 key down together for at least 3 seconds, everything will default back to factory settings.

Leaves blank TV screen when Return button operated

It sounds as though the unit is actually recording a DVD, but is getting no incoming signal to record. What is your recording source? Satellite and receiver? Antenna? Cable box? In the set-up menu, be sure you have chosen the proper input source; i.e., recording from where? You may be able to access that menu through the Function button on the remote, AFter setting that menu, be sure to press Return to restore the recorder to the ready mode. If you are using the RF input for recording, be sure that is selected as well, as opposed to L1 or L2. The input channel must match the output channel on your receiver, usually channel 3 or four. What is the model number?

Connecting and recording sony hdtv, rdr-hx780 recorder,sony dream system

I have the same system, except for the TV, I have a project (that part doesn't matter).

From your Sat. go straight to your AV receiver
Again from you Sat. (all of the AV outputs are all live), go out from either 1 or 2 and go to your recorder Line 1 in.
From you AV receiver go to your TV.

All you have to do is hit record and you will record whichever channel you are on. I am having difficulty getting it set up as a PVR, but will figure it out sooner or later.

Hope this helped.

Is there a solution?

I have a similar setup. Your problem is because you are selecting the recording on the digital tuner of the TV. When you do this you need to keep the TV on and canot switch channel.

You should make sure you use the digital tuner on the DMR-EX77 recorder and then you can use the TV as you like.
