Question about Sony RDR-HXD860 DVD Recorder/HDD Recorder
I can think of two possibilities. One: does your antenna system use an amplifier or splitter? It could be damaged. If you can, try removing these parts and directly connecting the DMR EX75 to the antenna. Then check if you can find the digital channels. Then reinstall the splitters or amplifier one by one until you find the bad part. Replace it. Some antennas can be set up with a fuse. This may need to be replaced. Check if your antenna has shifted orientation (particularly for outside antennas or ones that could be bumped).
Two: the digital tuner could have failed. If you have other devices with a digital tuner, check if they receive these stations. (If the devices allow it, check the signal strength on each. Tuners vary in sensitivity and with digital signals will give no signal if the minimum signal strength isn't available.)
See the manual for Signal Condition to check the quality and strength of the incoming signal. (page 65 of the manual http://dl.owneriq.net/d/d0a06f1a-db5e-452f-b3ec-74968cb3e8de.pdf )
I hope this helps.
(I have two tvs with an amplifier/splitter. The primary TV will still receive a watchable digital picture when the second TV reports "no signal". This happens when the antenna shifts in the wind or when the amplifier fails. The direct connection improves the signal strength. Moving the antenna back to the correct direction or replacing the amplifier are better solutions for the long term.)
