I have DR386D DVD Recorder and I cannt get it to tune in to HD Channels. The message I am getting is "HD Service not available" I am getting HD channels on my LG TV so I assume that the Antenna...

I wonder if this model is meant to receive HD channels in the first place. If it isn't, that is probably why you get that on-screen message. If it has a built in SD digital tuner, then it is not a HD digital tuner/DVD recorder; it would only be SD, hence the message.

It is possibly a limitation of the model, not a fault.
