I have a particular setup and find it difficult to get the connections right.
The equipment i have is as follows:
Philps DSR2210 satellite receiver
Philips DVDR3460H HDD & DVD player/recorder
Philips Digital Set Top Box
I want to connect the equipment in a way that I can record from the DSR2210 to the PVR.
I am using EXT1 and EXT2 on the TV but the PVR cannot see the satellite receiver. I am not really bothered to record from the Digi box as I am more interested to record foreign stations.
Can you help me with ehe setup?

Re: Connecting PVR and satellite receiver
Make sure you have a connection from one of your scart sockets (assuming you are using scart) on your sat to your pvr and then a connection (scart/hdmi?) to your tv from the pvr.
if you have a second scart or better still hdmi on your sat then plug that into tv
set top box scart output to tv
you do not say which tv model number you have so I dont know what input sockets you have but I will assume a couple of scart inputs and maybe a hdmi in (if hd version of tv) these days that would be considered a minimum amout of inputs so the setup suggestion above should be fine with that

Hi my name is Mike Houston of DISH Network, I see you aretrying to connect your Blu-ray to the surround sound system and you have DISHNetwork. I wanted to get a little more detail about the equipment to betterassist you, I was looking for the model numbers for the Sony and Philipsequipment to look at the configuration as well did you want any of the componentsconnected to the DISH receiver. I will leave you my e-mail to get the componentmodel numbers and will you be connecting it to our DISH equipment.
Hi Thanks for using FixYa. Two things that will cause
the “No Signal” message to come up are - no data available for closed
captioning and a weak signal input. Your TV is in the Closed Captioning Mode.
To turn it off simply bring up the on screen menu and scroll down to the part
that says closed captioning and turn this function off! With the closed
captioning block displayed and the program being viewed is not sending out
closed captioning signals the TV will display, No signal! If this doesn’t resolve your issue then the problem may be
with the processor failing and it is causing a random read of the EPROM to
display the not available message. I’ll suggest you to run the HDMI from the
PVR (personal video recorder) directly to the TV (mute the TV), and then run
the optical audio from the PVR directly into the receiver's optical in. The
closed captioning is something that is addressed in analog broadcasts, but not
necessarily digital broadcasts Try using Component cables if this doesn’t make a
difference. After using components cables the issue will be resolved. Please do
accept the solution if the issue is resolved or post a comment for further
assistance. Thanks Rylee
Change the source on the Philips/Magnavox to switch between satellite and movies (warning: this particular Philips/Mag cannot process HD Satellite receiver boxes). You can switch sources by using the Magnavox remote and pressing 0-2. Then press ch down until the display says either L1 or L2 - whichever input the satellite is connected to. Another warning: For my instructions to work, you must have a non-HD satellite receiver, and you must run a red, white and yellow cable from the satellite box to the Magnavox instead of a standard coaxial cable wire (and then, of course, run a second set of red, white and yellow cables from the Magnavox to your TV).
I have the same system, except for the TV, I have a project (that part doesn't matter).
From your Sat. go straight to your AV receiver
Again from you Sat. (all of the AV outputs are all live), go out from either 1 or 2 and go to your recorder Line 1 in.
From you AV receiver go to your TV.
All you have to do is hit record and you will record whichever channel you are on. I am having difficulty getting it set up as a PVR, but will figure it out sooner or later.
I solved the problem with my DVD recorder. I attached a cable from the loop out on the back of the FTA receiver to the RF in on the back of the recorder. All I was missing was the signal from the satellite. Everything is working fine now.
You CAN record one channel and watch another with satellite service, but it would require two separate DBS receivers. The issue is that all satellite broadcasting is encrypted until it hits the receiver, which decodes it and transmits it outward toward your other AV devices. If it weren't for the receiver, connecting the coax cable to your other devices and trying to tune channels with them would yield no signal and possibly much frustration. You would need to split the signal into each receiver and have one connected to the television via one input and the other to the recorder then to the TV via another input.
With cable, you can split the signal without having to have two boxes - this way the QAM tuner in the cable box is still capable of tuning channels while the recorder can tuner basic cable channels for recording separately. You can also have the cable box connected to the recorder via composite so that you can record premium stations on a DVD recorder input mode anytime you like - but you would have to be watching that channel at the same time unless the DVD recorder had a pass-through RF signal (rather than a composite clone) - meaning you could also use coaxial to your television from the recorder and tune channels separately on your television while the recorder is recording one channel.
A lot of what-ifs there, but it is all quite possible.
