How to reset the dvr-r box and remote when the tv is black and the same the boxes


You have an HD TV right? Has it worked before now? Make sure the cables are going into the right in and out on TV and dvr-r and make sure the cables are secure. Now make sure your TV is turned to the right setting or right channel to view dvr-r make sure dvr-r has cable/satalite cable going to in cable port and the out cable on the dvr-r is going to the TV (the port may say beside it what setting TV needs to be on to view it if not refer to your TV manual) if smart TV that recognizes new hardware unhook the port and turn TV on without it and then go see if its listed in your activity menu...if still listed try and figure out how to edit it and remove it then turn TV off hook back up and turn it back on and it should recognize it and you name it and set it all up and see if that resolves the issue. No make or model of either electronics make it very difficult to help but I hope I said something that makes sense and it works. Good luck

Will a dvr/tivo built for direct tv convercablet to a cable tv service with a cable card from suddenlink its a sd80 tivo dvr mfg 2004


Unfortunately, DIRECTV TiVo DVRs will work ONLY with DIRECTV. They cannot be modified to work with cable.

However, there are many TiVo boxes that do work with cable and they are as low as $99. See, for example:

There is no picture on tv


1.is the tv plugged in & getting electric?
2. Does the tv show a raster,a blue screen.
3.is the tv getting an input signal , assuming that the answer to 1 &2 was yes.
4. Is your cable box plugged in.
5. are all the connections into your cable box connected
or did one fall of
6. did you pay your cable bill on time.
If your cable box is bad , the cable company should fix or replace it for free. If you or someone else unhooked the connections,say by tripping over them,the cable company will restore the connections and chatge you a service call fee.
7. do you have dish or direct tv? either of those services will loose picture if it is raining out and picture wont come back until after the storm passes.
8. if you have dish or direct tv, and a branch,a person or an animal, a bird, has fallen on the dish/direct tv antenna, it may have misalligned the dish and it will no longer recieve the satalite signal. THere is a reallignment service
available;dish network charges $95.00 unelse you have insurance,like i do,so it only cost me $15.00 I never had direct tv soi could not say, but dish net claims direct tv is more expensive

You can allign the antenna yourself ,if it is not on a steep roof. You need one person moving the antenna & another person at the tv telling him if the picture is getting better or worse. The dish box comes with a built in signal strength gague for that purpose.

enjoy considering these options and they next time you ask
please enclose all the information that you can so that we have something to go on and work with.

I lose my audio often for non-hd channels with dish 622 dvr


The problem could lie in youir HDMI cable, this is a common issue. if you swap HDMI cables and still have the same problem then bypass your A/v rec and connect your 622 direct to your tv and see if the problem persists, it it does, then your DVR needs to be replaced, you can call dish for addition troubleshooting if it is in fact your DVR.

Record DVDs frrom Cable box DVR


Buy a recorder that records both +/-R and double layer disks.
I haven't seen a Comcast dvr but you should connect it to the svideo out port of the dvr to the svideo in of the recorder and the audio out to the audio in. If the Comcast doesn't have svideo use the video ports instead
