Unable to set TV channels on dvd recorder since connected to Sky box

I have connected my Sony DVD recorder to a Sony TV and Sky box. However, when I try to do the Easy Setup, it appears to set the channels on the DVD recorder using Smartlink. Once the setup is complete, I am unable to see any of the TV channels on the DVD recorder which means I can't use it to record any TV programmes. I don't want to get a Sky+ box as I am only renting the house for 6 months. I'm not sure if I have everything connected OK or not or if there is something else I have to do in order to be able to use the DVD recorder.

    The Sony DVD recorder model is RDR-HX525. There is nothing on the Sky box to indicate the make or model. It just says Sky Digibox.

    I want to connect this machine in such a way that it would be able to record even when TV is switched off

You have done wrong connections. You must follow carefully instructions are given at recorder's and sky box's user guide and do the interconnections correct.
If you have lost user guides of your set give their data to search if they can be found on web.

Actually you don't have to get other devices, Just cables, take the sky box output and connect to AV input of DVR

    You get parallel connection from the Sky box to TV or you can use the alternate output. Can you please let me know the model of your DVR and Sky box (usually motorola models).

Connecting DVD recorder to TV and SKY box


A simple solution - aerial input socket error - wrong socket!!

There are too many choices on the DVD record/play machine. When the plug came out - it was pushed back into the wrong socket.

How do i connect dvd recorder to tv only receiving sky channels through skybox


If you have two scart sockets on your tv,then connect a scart from av1 on the dvd into the tv,then connect a scart from the sky box into av2 on the dvd,your recording channel on the dvd will be av2.
If you only have on socket on the tv,then connect a scart from av1 on the dvd into the sky box,your recording channel will be av1,connected like this you may have to turn off the sky to watch dvd`s.

Useless at setting up. No sound on playback. Blocked timer record


You won`t get round the scan without an aerial.You still can set a recording as long as you set the recording channel as av2.Make sure the scart lead is fully in on dvd and tv,this can lead to no pic but sound,or sound no pic

Setting up


on the back of your sky box there are two scart ports. one says tv and the other video.

from the sky box connect a scart from the tv port to the back of your tv.

from the DVD connect a scart from that to the video scart port on the back of your sky box.

now when you turn your DVD player on it will override the sky and come through on your telly without having to change the scarts around.

what i would like you to do now. is get an RF lead. ( aerial lead) plug this into the RF out socket on the back of your sky box either one will do ie RF out 1 or 2 makes no difference.
Then plug the other end into the back of your Tv if you have an aerial cable coming into your home then simply plug this straight into the aerial port on the back of your sky box.

The last thing your going to have to do now is tune your telly in. if you click on channel 6 on your telly then go to menu, setup, and manual tune.. A good tip for you put your sky on the TV GUIDE screen this will make life easier for yourself as you will know its the sky channel.
once you find it STORE.

now when you turn your dvd player on if you select channel 6 you will now have the sky channel so you can record whatever you like

Hope this sorts you out.
cheers
