I recently purchased an RCA DRC8335. I have a Direct Satellite system and have the RCA unit hooked up but when I run the scan to get the channels into the unit, it will not recognize any except the channel that the satellite is curently picking up. How can I get all of the satellite channels to download into the RCA unit so that I can record and use it as it was intended?

have this model..was trying to hook it up to a directv hughes receiver.After a day of trying and many curse words I found that using thishookup works . Hook up your satellite connection to you tv asusual...Now plug rca cables(red,yellow white) into the corresponding holes on the BACK of the Directvreceiver ..now plug the rca cables into the FRONT of the Magnavoxplayer...you will only use find holes for the white and yellow(that'sok) Now hook up up the dvd playerto the tv using the rca connection back of dvd/vcr player..or if yourtv only has a coax connection you will need a rf modulator available atwalmart etc. You will run the dvd/vcr on L2. The key is the connectionsto the FRONT of the dvd/vcr player..I hope this helps..:)
The easiest thing to do would be get a new TV plain and simple sounds as if you could use one n e ways. But first make sure you are hooked up through coaxal to the tv that will allow everything to run on channel 3. Let me know your current hookup.
make sure you have tuner as input---if you are running through another unit as I am to get the signals to the tv--I have to select vidio1 as input to be able to see the screen. My guess is that input is not set to tuner.
Hope this works.
if you have an s video out as well as audio out on your laptop connect it to svideo and corrasponding audio input on dvd recorder. hook up recorder to a TV to see the movie your transfering then press record on drc that should be good luck
I don't understand why you would bother to scan channel when you have directv or dishnetwork??? directv or Dishnetwork required their units in order to watch any channel,which means: A. Depending on your TV setting,if you use RF connection from your basic directv to the tv,you would have to leave the TV on Ch.3 or Ch.4.to view the rest of the channels,you have to change it from the directv or dishnetwork box. You are NOT able to scan the rest of the channels from the TV,bottom line!! If you have comcast or your local cable provider,once you have activated,you could use the RF signal coming out from the wall plate straight to the tv and go to TV auto programming,it will auto scan the available channels for you. Don't waste your time on directv. If you are thinking about recording from your BASIC directv or dishnetwork box, you would connect SAT. signal from the wall plate to the directv box,then use composite video/audio output and connect straight to your VCR/DVD player under composite video/audio input. Now you could record the viewing channel to the VHS. Good luck!
