Question about Sony DHG-HDD250 200-Hours Video Recorder

1 Answer

Guide listings are incomplete

My guide does not show all of the channels from my local cable company. I have allowed the box to rescan, but it still leaves out some of the HD channels such as Disc HD and Science HD which are on channels 720 and 721.

    I have the same problem. I'm using Cablecard (M-Card) on my Pioneer Kuro and while I can manually (ch up/dn) pick up all the channels, the TVGOS is just incomplete in its listings.

1. Manually scan all channels on your TV with your TV remote and write down the channels and network shown:
(sample: 119.2 C-SPAN2 digital channel).
2. Go to Edit Channels and find the icon for C-SPAN2 (about icon 261 in my zip code). Manually change the channel from Off to On, Insert the frequency, and optionally insert the number you want the channel to show in your channel listing ( or move it manually later).

I have about 10 to add each time I reset my recorder.

    CORRECTION: Use the DVR remote ,not TV remote, to manually scan digital channels in step 1 above.

Trying to retune the box message keeps saying no channels have to rescan same message over and over again


The obvious answer would be that there is no input plugged into the box, and therefore its not finding any channels. There is a lot of information missing from this problem, but the first thing on the list to check should be your connections, specifically your antenna/cable input jacks.

Make sure you are using the IR cable to control the Cable Box.
Make sure that you have already done a guided setup again from the tivo box.

Motorola dvr dct6412 locked channels


Check with your provider to ensure that you are in expanded services, or limited. Because being on limited services the box will lock you out of those channels. If you are in billing for those services and you checked the batteries on your remote and they are good and you get a solid red blink when you change channels not a double blink (indicating that your batteries are dying), Then try power cycling your DVR by, removing the power supply and waiting 3sec then plug it back in. Your box should shut off, turn itself back on, then go into the load screen, then, once the load screen display shows on your tv and on box display, wait for your box to completely load (don't touch nothing until the correct time shows up, meaning that it has completed the load process) Once the process is complete turn box back on and you should have you guide back up and (No Data) on your program schedule(Don't Worry!!) it will populate, with 15-20 mins.

Now try to ch. up and down and see if that fixed the problem. also make sure nothing is blocking the sensor. If all else fails and you changed the battery, called your cable provider and request a box swap, (be sure to watch all your recorded shows because they go bye, bye with the cable guy!)

Trying to hook up motorola DCT224 cable box to my TV - get guide ok but not getting channels to come in


If the guide appears - the problem lies with the service provider.
You will need to call them to enable your box.
Have the serial number handy - they will need it to allow your box to connect to the system.


Thanks for using FixYa!!

Cant get all channels


Instead of doing auto scan the should be a option for channel list or add\delete or manual scan. What kind of tv is it? You don't have a cable box right? If you still have trouble, just comment on this.

Looks like you only have one tuner hooked up (one cable ) to your tivo. You need 2 in order to work properly
