Sony rdr-gxd500 DVD Recorder

I have a sony dvd recorder with built in digital tuner (rdr-gxd500), which I purchased whilst living in the UK. I am now living in Australia and tried to re-tune the digital receiver to get the available Australian channels and didn't get any - it still listed the UK channels. I tried restoring to the factory settings, which didn't work but also since doing that the remote control no longer works for the DVD (it can still control the TV). The dvd will still play dvds from both the UK and Australia. Can you offer any advice on what I can do to sort the problems out?

Thanks

Brian

    Bought Sony Digital dvd player in the uk and can't tune it to get all Australian channels. Have tuned a few, that work intermittently by changing the player to a European Country's setting but the DVD recorder doesn't give me the option to change the Country to Australia.

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.

Check video input setting to DVD recorder...should be set to "External" or "Line". This should activate the video input jacks on the rear of the RDR-VX530 and allow it to "see" your Sony handycam.
