    You can use the interactive program guide ot select the channels you wish to see. Tuning in channels is not like it used to be as the digital realm sees all channels available, you just have to select the ones you want. Scanning through the manual is the way to go. or kust invetsigate menus ascociated with the interactive program guide.

When im recording im unable to watch any other channels


That can be normal with some DVR boxes as recording a program requires a tuner and watching requires a tuner. If the model of DVR you have only has one, then you can do one or the other but not both.

Some cable companies offer DVRs with more than one tuner in them that let's you do what you described. You could contact your provider and ask them about that option.

I have a Pioneer DVR5100H which was set up to record Analogue programs - can I change the set up to accept digital programs. I have tried auto setup but it doesn't pick up any programs?


Hi,

You can't record digital programmes with this recorder unless it is connected to a digital tuner, e.g. a Freeview box or Sky digibox. This recorder has a built in analogue tuner which allows it to record analogue transmissions. Recorders which can record digital transmissions have a built-in digital tuner and usually have a DVB logo (actually looks more like DV3) on the front.

If you want to record digital programmes using this recorder, you need to connect it to a Freeview or Sky digibox, preferably with a scart cable. It is not sufficient to connect it to a TV with a digital tuner or built in Freeview as the player does NOT record directly from the TV, it must be connected directly to the transmission source. A basic stand-alone digital tuner (Freeview box) can be bought for as little as £10-15.

Regards,
BElectric

I have a Philips DVDR 3575H. using Comcast's


Try this set up-

Use an RCA audio/video cable for this set up (Yellow/Red/White).

Connect from the Video out (Yellow) connection on the back of the cable box to the Video in on the back of the DVR.

Connect the audio (Red/White) cables from audio out connection on the back of the cable box to the "Audio in" on the back of the DVR.

This should still get you a decent picture but not a true HD picture for your recordings.

When you set the timer to record set it to record either E1 or E2 depending on which input you connected the cable box to and ensure that the cable box is tuned to the channel you wish to record.

*** NOTE: If you keep the HDMI cable connected as you have for the cable box and watch normal TV through the HDMI input on the TV you will get HD programming for your general viewing but still have the option to record with the DVR at a lower quality. ***

Good Luck and please rate this solution....

I GET TO THE WINDOW TO PROGRAM A RECORDING BUT FOR CHANNEL SELECTION I ONLY GET L- L-2 OR L3 I NEED TO BE ABLE TO SELECT THE CHANNEL LIKE 6 THIS IS A NEW HD TV. I AM ABLE TO PLAY EXISTING SHOW ON THE DVD...


Hi.

You will need to connect an antenna and program channels to internal tuner if you want to use the built in tuner.

It is not clear if your problem is with the HDTV or with the DVD recorder.

Both have an internal tuner, and both can tune channels , L2 and L3 are the input lines used when you connect for example to an external receiver.

DMR E55 timer recording won't work


Your recorder doesn´t have a digital tuner, let alone an HD one. You can record digital programs via your TV tuner if it gives a signal out. Connect your TV to AV1 or AV2 on your recorder and program the recorder to record from the one you chose. You must program the TV separately (I don´t know if this is possible on your TV) or leave it on and on the channel you want to record.

DVD recorder with NTSC tuner


Hey Whormd,

If neither your DVD recorder nor your TV has a digital (ATSC) tuner, they will not be able to directly receive over-the-air broadcasts after the DTV conversion is completed without the assistance of a set-top converter box. Please keep in mind that the official analog broadcasting cut-off date does vary by country. In the U.S. this date is February 17th, 2009, and that Canadian TV stations have until August 31st 2011 to make the transition.

Please also note that you will need one converter box for each device with an analog tuner, in order to watch one program while recording another. One converter box would need to be connected to the DVR, while the second converter box would need to be connected to the TV itself.

For more information, I would strongly suggest checking out the FAQ sections of the official DTV websites established by the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) and the Canadian Radio/Television Telecommunications Commission (CRTC):

http://www.dtv.gov/index.html (FCC)
http://www.crtc.gc.ca/ (CRTC)

Hope this helps you out.

Sincerely,
Aaron
Go Ahead. Use Us.
