Question about Sony DVD & Blu-Ray Players

1 Answer

Sir I have just acquired a Sony DVD recorder model no. RDR-GX350. I have an LG LCD TV and a Sky HD Box and I have connected the recorder to the TV with an 'S' lead and I can play a DVD, I can't set up the recorder, I have a scart lead from the TV scart on the HD box to the TV and I have a scart lead from the HD Box to the Line 1/decoder scart on the recorder, I have tried various options with this but I can't seem to set the recorder up and find any TV stations, I have tried to read the manual, but I am an OAP and probably a bit thick, can you help please Thank you Tony Dowling

Thanks, but no thanks, in the long run it is better to get a technician in to sort it, more expensive yes, but not so traumatic as trying to deal with someone by typing in answers to questions, the man I dealt with assured me I had two scart plugs on my TV. I only have one, so he said it can't be done, end of story.

Connecting DVD recorder to TV and SKY box


A simple solution - aerial input socket error - wrong socket!!

There are too many choices on the DVD record/play machine. When the plug came out - it was pushed back into the wrong socket.

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.

CANT FIGURE OUT HOW TO RECORD OFF AN 'AV' SETTING


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.

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
