Question about Televison & Video
Hi, From what I'm reading of your problem, it now seems that you are using the Motorola set top box now as your tuner, so no longer are the channels tuned by or switched by the use of the remote..thats because that TV's tuner isn;t the one you now need to switch. So you cant use that remote for the telly to change the channels of your set top box, you need its controller, the tv one is for turn on and off the display now and setting it to whatever the source/mode you have the set top box going into and volume unless it is running via a sound system.
DVD - The DVD tuner (analog?)is also of the old pre-box setup, and from the sounds of this you got the Box because the analog signal was phased out in your country, so that means the DVD's tuner will not operate either, unless it is digital, but I guess you could set it up at least so it would record what you are watching threw the box(Digital?) but what the use of that...
You can watch, only as many tuners you have, and It seems as if you may only have one and it is switched by the motorola box's remote, and the dvd wont record because it needs a signal, but if the dvd is digital, we need to hook it up to the same signal cable the set top box gets, have it's leads plug into an available input on the back of the tv like AV2 or something, switch the tv to that input source or mode, power up the dvd, and press play to test connection, then we need to tune it in to the tv signal but if you cant tune the DVD unit to any stations then either its an anolog unit and that signal is now gone(to make room for RFID) or you ain't got it plugged into the outside signal/arial/cable socket...
Guess your in the US where analog is now gone, we in australia will follow shortly..cheers
