Question about Philips DVDR3450H DVD Recorder/HDD Recorder

1 Answer

Connecting PVR and satellite receiver

Hi,
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
Philips TV

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?

Thanks
Mike

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

Rear speakers only work during calibration and testing. Not during playback.


This commonly happens based on the source. For example, if your receiver looks at the source that is analog, it will use two channels, the two front left and right speakers. However, some receivers, such as a Denon, have a 5 channel stereo feature that will utilize all 5 speakers (L&R Front, Center, L&R Rear). If you are connecting a DVD player, often you need to configure the source appropriately. If you are connecting using the RCA cables, it will be stereo. If you are using Optical or Coaxial connection, you can enjoy Dolby Digital, but may need to specify in the receivers setup to use these audio source inputs. If you are connecting via HDMI, early versions only supported Dolby Prologic, but you occasionally hear mono sound from rear speakers. Without knowing more about your equipment, what source you are hoping to hear and how you are connected, it will be difficult to pinpoint your cause, but hopefully this helps your understanding to enable you look for the appropriate cause.

How do we connect our system using a Shaw PVR


Do you have a optical/coaxial input on your system? Eg: cable, TV.I use a optical input on my Yamaha ( cable, satellite ). Look to see if there is a optical/coaxial output on your pvr, there should be. Use ether the optical or coaxial output from your pvr and connect it to the cable (satellite ) optical/coaxial input on your receiver. The manual that came with your Shaw PVR should explain how. You will get 5.1 surround if available on certain channels.I prefer optical over coaxial myself, but they both work well.If you don't have optical/coaxial inputs on your receiver, you will have to use RCA cables, analogue out on cable box, to tape input or aux on your receiver. You will not get surround sound, just stereo. But it's better than nothing.

How do I change the resolution on my Sharp Aquos LC-69E88UN from 480i to 1080p. My satellite box is HD and the tv says its on 480i. Any help would certainly be appreciated


Do you mean the LC-60E88UN? The LC-69E88UN isn't listed at Sharp's USA web site.

Try a different channel; different programs will have different resolutions provided (particularly the local stations). How are you connecting the TV to the satellite box? If you are not using component or HDMI, then get the appropriate cable for whichever of those is compatible with your satellite box. Then change switch the output of the satellite box and switch the input if needed for the TV.

With DirectTV, there is a setup menu option to change the output resolution to the native resolution of the TV. So check that. Menu > Fav's and Setup (press Select) go to HDTV > Video tab. Set Native option to On. The only issue will be that channel changes will be slow as the receiver checks the native resolution. Dish Network probably has a similar feature but it may be in a different menu area. Check your documentation. Both companies have manuals online when you look up the equipment.

I hope this helps.

Component video problem. Hi I got the Denon AVR-3806 receiver and has it hooked up with a component cable to my background projection TV. To the reciever I have a satellite box connected also with a...


Just fixed this myself - made my head hurt to figure out. 1. Switch to a setting (say DVD). 2. Watch the AVR screen as it switches. You'll see the audio and video settings. For example, Audio = DVD, Video = DVD (Mine showed Audio = DVD, Video = DBS even though is was set correctly using the SETUP for audio and video)3. Under the round control knob on the left, push the (tiny) Video Select button. 4. Turn control know to choose the correct video source
Your system should work right. Mine did.

Connecting and recording sony hdtv, rdr-hx780 recorder,sony dream system


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.

Hope this helped.
