I have Sky channels that i am trying to record is this the problem, I notice that this is an analogue recorder could this be the problem. I obviously do not need a recorder with freeview and cannot get it in my area, but if I buy one if the analogue is the problem can I then program it to sky.

Analogue Recoders are not totally programmable but does not follow certain features you want like setting the time and fixed channel for recording.

to answer your questions, Sky channels is not a problem for your recording...

thanks for using fixya.

Most likely your sky box has analog outputs that can connect to the recorder's inputs. Everything but DVI and HDMI is analogue. Also if you want the recorder to control your recorder you need an IR blaster of some sort that connects to the recorder and sticks in from of the remote control receiver on the box you want controlled, then by programming the proper remote code into the recorder if can control your TV.

I was unable to find any information on Acoustic Solutions as it seems there website is down. Hopefully the information I provided makes sense. Good Luck!

Recording Multiple Channels with DVD Recorder


Yes just set the timer programs on each line in the set timer "page". You just change the date and times on each line in order.

Channel stuck and can't record shows the same night


Your two problems are related - the DVD player lost contact with the local PBS channel, which altered its internal clock.

Add a red, white and yellow cable from one of the outs on the back of the cable box to the slot marked AV1 IN on the back of the Philips. Then redo the channel programming - press the System Menu button and change Tuning Band to CATV - it will then ask you if you want to do an Auto Channel Set - say Yes.

Once it is done with the channel programming, turn the DVD player to whatever channel PBS is on in your area's cable service. Then go back to System Menu - select Clock Set and go to Auto. Alternatively, you can select Manual under Clock Set and change the date by hand).

Good luck!

Watching another channel while recording


Hi there! Sorry but you can't unless you have My Sky/HD recorder. The sky decoder is simply a one channel watch decoder. You can only record a sky channel and watch the channels normally provided via your VHF and UHF aerials connected to the decoder or vice versa.
My Sky fixes that although you cannot record to a dvd disc on this thing and the privilege comes at a price of course!
