Why can't I record on my DVR?


Check all your connections and configuration between decoder to DVR and TV. I find it is more practical to use the DMI connectors for this purpose. Between my LG TV, LG DVR, LG Blue Ray Player and Decoder I use 3 DMI connector cables. Ideal for me because my TV has 3 DMI points, I just connect each of 3 items to TV via a DMI cable. Now connect decoder to DVR via video-audio cable (red-white-blue). This setup allows each unit to be used individually (i.e. tv viewing, recording, blue ray playing and when recording live TV the TV can be switched off while recording. Just remember to select the appropriate DMI connected unit on your TV remote (on "input" button).

How to record a program you are watching on your cable satellite receiver.


Hello,<br /><br />Most of the time we watch TV programs with our cable satellite receiver/decoder. And sometimes we would love to record these programs so that we can watch them again. You can learn how to record your TV program while you watching a TV program. <br /><br />All you will be needing is a DVD recorder or VCR (Video cassette Recorder). It all depends on the one you prefer.<br /><br />There are two methods of doing this connection. 1. is RF connection and the other is RCA. But I will start with the RF connection method;<br /><br />This is how is works. Get a RF cord, check the back of your TV, you would see RF in, connect the RF into TV in, then connect the other part to RF Out at the back of the Cassette or DVD Recorder.<br /><br />Turn the Cassette or DVD Recorder and the TV on. Go to Channel 1 or any channel on the TV, search the TV stations automatically or manually in order to get a display of the Cassette or DVD Recorder on the TV. To easily get the Cassette or DVD Recorder's station, play a movie on the Cassette or DVD Recorder while you search for the station. Once you see the display of the movie on your TV, you would easily know that that's the Cassette or DVD Recorder station. <br /><br />Once you have gotten a display from the Cassette or DVD Recorder, save the channel on the TV.<br /><br />Then get another RF cord, connect it to "RF out" at the back of the Satellite/cable decoder/receiver and the other part to "RF in" at the back of the Cassette or DVD Recorder.<br /><br />Now with the Satellite/cable decoder/receiver turned on and the Cassette or DVD Recorder also turned on, press the Cassette or DVD Recorder's channel, you should find search. Scan for channel/stations on the Cassette or DVD Recorder just like you did on the TV and you will find a display of the Satellite/cable decoder/receiver showing on the TV via the Cassette or DVD Recorder. Note that on some Cassette or DVD Recorder, you will have to select "Source" to RF before you can get a display of the channel.<br /><br />Now since the Satellite/cable decoder/receiver program is now showing via the Satellite/cable decoder/receiver, insert a black disc or cassette into the Recoder and press record. The Satellite/cable decoder/receiver programs showing on the TV via the player will be recorded and that would be all.<br /><br />For some recorders that has internal hard drive, you can just press record without inserting a blank disc......<br /><br />USING RCA CONNECTION METHOD.<br /><br />You could also achieve this by using a RCA (yellow, red and white cord).<br /><br />The connection procedure is the same with the RF explained above.<br /><br />Connect the Recorder to the TV. That is, from "Video and audio Out" of the recorder to "video and audio in" of the TV accordingly. Press AV or source on the TV to confirm that there is a display from the recorder on the TV.<br /><br />Now connect the RCA cord to "OUT" from the Satellite/cable decoder/receiver to "IN" at the back of the Recorder.<br /><br />Then, press source on the recorder to "INPUT" (RCA) and the Satellite/cable decoder/receiver's program will automatically display on the TV. <br /><br />While the Program is being displayed on the TV via the recoder, insert a blank disc and press record on the player and it will automatically start recording. You will see the record or record symbol while the recoding is in progress.<br /><br />I hope you understand the above. Please follow steps closely and you won't have any problems.<br /><br />Good luck.

How do I connect my TEVLON hdd dvd to strong decoder


why would you want to connect a hdd dvd to the strong decoder. Wouldn't you connect it to a television via the hdd dvd av output into the av input of the tv and then switch the telivision on input source to AV1 .
You did not mention the model number of the strong decoder but is this a digital tv to Analogue TV decoder.?
you might also have HDMI output and HDMI input on the devices .
That would be better to use if it exists. If you only have one AV input on the TV use a AV switch box and switch between the decoder and the HDD dvd device using

How do I fix the irritating shhhshshsh sound on my Hisense TV


Try moving the decoder to the other side of the TV, or farther away. The TV audio circuit may be picking up electromagnetic noise from the digital circuitry in the decoder. Another possibility is a defective audio circuit in the decoder.

If you are connecting the decoder to the antenna input on the TV, the problem may be a misaligned (mistuned) audio modulator output in the decoder. In that case, if you have the option of using a different TV channel on both units, try that.
