Question about Sony RDR-VX525 DVD Recorder/VCR
I'm trying to help my uncle with his equipment. Here's a quick profile of his equpment:
Sony RDR-VX525 DVD Recorder/VCR
Sony Bravia Flat Screen TV
He claims that at one point, he was able to record one program onto DVD while watching another. His satellite receiver is plugged through the DVD/VCR, then to the TV.
The DVD/VCR is set to video port #4, the satellite receiver is set to video port #6.
When you program the DVD/VCR in port #4 to record a specific channel at a specific time, it starts to record the correct channel, then "follows" whatever activity is going on in port #6.
What steps are we missing here?
SOURCE: Can't play Burned DVD's
This is because when you burn a DVD and want to use it on another unit you have to finalize it. Especially from another device such as your computer. You should have the option on your computer to finalize or make disc compatible.

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.

Ok, I had this issue. And this is what you need. Even if you have a new HDTV, you need a converter box. The new TVs are not made to send out the signal just take it in. Best price I have seen on converter boxes was H.E.B
1. Antenna to converter box
2. Converter box to VCR
3. VCR to T.V
You will have to leave the converter box on when you are recording or leave it on when you leave the house. Also it has to be on the channel you are recording and the TV needs to be on channel 3 or 4. When you program your VCR it needs to be for the time and stuff. But put it to record channel 3 or 4. Which ever you pick for it to record off of. It really is easy. But I do hate that the people that had this great idea made it to where we can only record from one channel. I am going to try to send a diagram that I drew. Not the best artist, but you can tell what I mean. I can not seem to get it to attach the attachment. But you should not have a problem. Good Luck :-)
