    hi there, connecting satellite receiver to sony rdr-hx780 dvd recorder , I am unable to change channels with the recorder and therefore can not record different programs from different stations:(

    Hi. I'm having the same problem. My TV channels works great and I can record from them. However, I have the Grundig Free4Sat digital box, which is fantastic, but I can't seem to record from it. If I'm in the AV1 or AV2 mode watching the channels and select to record the satellite channel I'm watching, then press the button to select, it over rides and goes back to the TV channels. I can't seem to record from the satellite channels either. I'm also using the Sony Bravia television that was made for the Sony HX780 DVD Recorder.

The method is the same as for TV channels; select the input (i.e. view the desired channel), then press the record button. AV1 and AV2 usually are at the end of the channel list, and can be found by pressing the channel UP or DOWN buttons.

Connecting my laptop to DVD recorder and recording onto the recor


You FIRST need a way to get the Signal, INTO the laptop, you need to get a USB to TV/Video Dongle, Now using this and the software that came with it, as well as other software, You Hook up the OUTPUT from the DVD Player, to the Video Input on the USB Dongle, Either, Component (Best) or Composite, (OK) Video, and AV Audio, and set to "Record" on the PC, and "Play" the DVD and then the PC will "Record" the incoming signal from, the DVD player, to the HDD in the PC. Once digitised, and saved it can be manipulated, any way you want.
Now if you want to do the REVERSE IE: Take a signal FROM the PC, to the DVD, then you simply setup the DVD as a Second monitor, use a TV to set it all up, once it is all working on the Laptop and TV, simply swing the Output, away from the TV's Input, to the DVD's Input,and select record, the PC, will then output whatever, to the screen, and whatever is displayed on-screen, will be recorded by the DVD's hard drive.
You First though must setup the PC to have multiple monitors, it is best to get the most up to date drivers and install them in the PC. FIRST. Go to this MS link below it shows you how to set u,setup as CLONE mode, I think will be best, also don't set initial resolution too high to start, set it to say 800x600 32 bit, to start, and work up, until your TV complains and stop. As related once setup, swing the PC's output to the DVD, and record.

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.

I presume that your TV uses Scart to connect to other devices and on your TV remote there will be a button that has either of these things next to it: 1.A box with an arrow pointing into it. 2.A button that says input. 3.A button that says AV. Turn on your DVD recorder and then push the button that i explained until you find the DVD recorder is coming up on your screen
