Digital channels higher than 138

During the channet setup the channels only go to 138 and stop. Most of my digital channels on my cable box are in the 200 range. If I enter the channel from the remote no signal is found. How do I record from these channels? Am I doing something wrong?

Re: digital channels higher than 138

You may also need to play around with the "input select". I had the same problem, but when I put it on "input 1" it worked ok.

The channel setup is for freeview. Connect the Cable box Via a scart cable and view on the AV channel.

I cannot get the system to change the channel on my cable box during timer recording, even though it works when I test it.

I have the same problem. It works fine during setup and changes channels on my DirecTV receiver but does not change channels when programmed for a timed recording. I talked to a Sony Service Representative and they said to return it to Walmart and get another one, but I suspect I would encounter the same problem. I think their is a major design problem with the RDR-GX257. I would be curious to see if others are having the same problem.

How to set the DVD Recorder+VCR’s RF output channel
Turn off the DVD Recorder+VCR, then press and hold
CH (v/V) on the front panel for about five
seconds to change the RF output channel (CH 03 or
CH 04). “RF 03” or “RF 04” appears on the front panel display.

Solution 2

Cable Service With Cable Box
If a cable box is required in your cable system, follow the
instructions shown below. This hookup permits both TV and
DVD Recorder+VCR operation.
To view or record a CATV channel:
1 Tune the TV to the correct video input channel.
2 Set the DVD Recorder+VCR to the output channel of the
cable box using the CH (v / V) or the 0-9 keys on your DVD
Recorder+VCR (e.g., CH3).
3 Select the channel you wish to view on the cable box.

Take a splitter from the wall and plug it in using a seperate line. You wont get all the digital channels but you can get channels up to 150 to record. Depending on how many av outputs you have on the back of your digital tuner you might be able to take one of those those and plug it into the av input of your DVD recorder. You can get a better picture that way when you record from the cable box vs using coax.

Make sure the splitter is approved for digital cable use. The Radio Shack ones work the best and they are usually the same version of the ones Comcast sells to customers. If you get a brand like they carry at drug stores you will lose picture quality and probably end up with a service call bill as well.

Toshiba D-VR650KU can't "see" digital channels

On the Notification screen with Cable highlighted I found that left clicking on Cable gave a drop down menu with TV on it for selection. The manual says that while Cable is highlighted, use the up or down arrows to get TV to be an option and then select it and Yes and enter. Hope this helps. I have other problems with my monitor on Line Out, the screen oftens turns blue indicating low or no video using Line 1 or 2 inputs.

Connect ILO DVDR05 to a digital set top box tuner

Just run your outputs from your cable to the ILO inputs, then your ilo ouputs to the tv inputs. Use Cable remote to control channels, use ILO source button on remote to access the correct input setting on ILO. AND YES< you have to do this EVERY TIME you turn the ILO on to watch tv.. I have mine hooked up this way to record from my convertor box and My husband hates it.(when he just wants to watch tv.)

Ilo dvd player wont search high channels

At a guess the device will only find channels it can detect. So what is your connection antenna or cable If antenna then all TV is line of sight and directional If cable - only the channel's the cable co supply will come down the wire.
