is your star box for viewing Virgin media and sky programs with out paying subscriptions? i know that they have sent signals to all pirate boxes to block them, to stop people from viewing free channels. the shop that sells them told me that there is no new fix for the Eurobox. hope this helps
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 day, I might be missing something, but you are describing a converter box that converts digital signals from an antenna to analog. The converter box will be set to channel 3, and you should set your tv's to channel 3 as well. Using the remotes that came with the tv's go into setup and if available as an option, you will find an option to select cable/antenna or automatic. Select automatic or antenna and save. If there is a selector switch on the back of the tv's, set to 3.
Connect antenna cable into input, and use supplied cable to connect from the output of the converter to your tv.
plug in power supply for converter box, tune tv to channel 3 then follow instructions to setup converter box including channel scan. When done, the converter remote will control everything. However, the tv volume control will work even though the converter remote will have volume as well. The tv remote as well is needed to shut off or turn on tv. These functions can on most tv's be performed on the set as well.
No codes are required. The converter remote will work on any tv.
If you want to use both tv's then you will need a splitter on the output of the converter to send the signal to both tv's. Only one channel can be viewed at a time.
Viewing separateChanel's requires a second converter box and a splitter connected to the antenna cable for viewing separate channels.
More options are possible, but I hope this helps you get started. The converter box takes place of the tv's tuner and in essence disables it.
If a cable box is not required for cable signal reception, connect the cable line to the ANT. IN connector on the recorder. If a cable box is required for cable signal reception, connect the cable line to the IN connector of the cable box. Connect a coaxial cable from the OUT connector of the cable box to the ANT. IN connector of the recorder. To view or record a CATV channel:
Tune the TV to the Recorder output channel (CH 3 or 4).
Set the Recorder channel selector to the cable output channel. (Example: CH3).
Select a channel using the cable converter.
With this connection, you cannot record one program while viewing another.If you are using a cable box to tune channels, it is not necessary to do Auto Channel Set.
Hi,i learned on another forum that if you connect an hdmi cable apparently it disables the functions of the scart sockets,especially where the remote control is concerned.This is something to do with virgin media's setup and not any equipment fault.If you want to go back to two room viewing try unplugging the hdmi lead.
Please recheck the model. It looks like it is the DVP33040V/17 model.
You said you cannot set or play DVD/VCR tapes.
1. Is this unit hooked up properly to your TV?
2. Is your TV set to its correct viewing channel?
This is the tunerless model so the very basic way of connecting this to the TV is using the composite cables (yellow/red/white). Then find the correct viewing channel on the TV. Note:IT IS NOT CHANNEL 3 OR 4. It depends on your TV make. Most of the time it is called AV, VIDEO, INPUT, SOURCE, EXT, AUX, GAME,etc. Most of the time, the TV remote control has a specific button with those labels. You can also check your TV manual how to get the VIDEO channel when using the composite cables.
Furthermore, if you would do recordings, you will need an extenal tuner (cable box or satellite box) for this unit. You have to connect an external tuner box using another set of composite AV cables - that is:
AV out from the cable/satellite box to VCR IN on the DVD/VCR.
1) Obvious, but I assume that you subscribe to these services, because otherwise it could be the encryption.
2) Make sure that you have the set-top box connected directly to the TV, and not through an external recorder (VCR, DVD etc)
This would be a problem if the services were copy protected in the same way DVDs are.
You could also check the settings on the set-topbox. Make sure the video output is set to RGB.
