Question about Pioneer DVR-633H-S

TV GUIDE The TV guide feature on the DVR is constantly reseting and I have to wait 24 hours for it to work again Because my kids use it I am not sure what they are doing that causes this. There has not been a loss of power. What could cause this?

    Techman, thanks for the idea. I tried it and it seemed to be the solution, but now it is doing the same thing even though it is plugged directly into the wall. Any othe suggestions?

Try this (with the original remote): Reset TV Guide On Screen
1. Press the TV Guide button
2. Curser up and over to the SETUP menu
3. Select Change system settings (highlight only)
4. Enter the following numbers … 753159852 (setup mode)
5. Enter the following numbers … 653274147 (reset mode)

It will take some time for the guide to download, but it worked for me.

The hum from my vip 722k dvr box keeps me awake at night. thank you!!

pwgasson,

Some noise from the receivers is normal as they are constantly updating the guide and checking for any software updates. How loud would you say the hum is, and is it constant or intermittent?

My DVR said the my harddrive was corrupt and it need to clean it's self so i let it, and it cleared everthing off my DVR. Now the guide will not load the shows about to come on it keeps saying "Info....

candgr15,

It's possible that after it did the formatting of the DVR it just needs to be reset. Unplug it for 5-10 seconds and plug it back in. It will reacquire signal and the guide.

If that doesn't work run a check switch test from Menu-> System Setup (6)-> Installation (1)-> Point Dish(1). Select check switch then test. Once it's done exit out.

I would also check your timers after the reset to make sure they're setup as they made have been deleted during the reformatting.

I have direct tv dvr my remote wont work,but remote works on my other recivers,has the ir gone bad and can it be fixed

Hi,

It's possible that the IR receiver in the DVR has failed. It's unlikely to be the remote as it works with other devices. If the remote was working with the DVR before, then in most cases the problem can be corrected by resetting the DVR as follows:

Press the RED RESET BUTTON behind the access card panel on the front of the DVR. Wait for the program guide information to update then try the remote again.

Try this and post back if you need further assistance.

Regards,
BElectric

TV Guide on screen not loading schedule

I'm afraid this will no longer work... With the change to all digital, the TVGOS in your set will no longer work. I have the same set, same problem and spoke directly with a Toshiba tech. Bummer, I have the Symbio DVR and it won't work now either.

Panasonic DVR, loss of TV Guide on-screen program listings

Hi,

I had the TVGUIDE listing through my GE TV and it came across with a notice that they would no longer be putting out the listings. That was last year and the listing never showed up again. Your DVR may be recording digitally but if you can see it on a analog tv, it is using a analog turner and you will need a converter box to record once everything goes digital.

Most of the digital converter boxes come with a guide built in. I have the Magnavox and the Zenith and they work fine. You will need two converter boxes, one for the DVR and one for the tv, if you want to watch the tv and record a different show at the same time.

I would hook them up by splitting the antenna wire to the tv and the DVR. Then I would use the RCA plugs to connect the DVR to the TV and use the Input setting on the TV when I want to watch the DVR. You will have to set the converter box to the channel that is playing the program you want. The DVR will be set to channel 3 or 4 (whatever channel the converter box is set on to broadcast on) to record on, not the broadcast channel. Make sure the power saver on the converter box is set to off or the converter box will turn off after a couple hours and you will get no picture for the dvr to record on.

The digital signal is being sent over the air usually over UHF channels. It sent digitally but will be picked up by your antenna in the same way it picks up the analog signal thus there is no difference. There is no such thing as a digital antenna, thus a antenna from a Home Depot will work fine. I needed a outdoor antenna but the picture quality is the same as cable. Just make sure the antenna can pick up UHF and VHF signals.

Hope it helps!

TV Guide will not update

The problem is not with your machine. TVGOS information is embeded in part of the a PBS analog signal. With the covnversion to digital, some PBS stations are not sending this data out anymore. Also, some cable companies are not converting the digital signals to be sent out on the old 125 analog channels.

If you try to chase this down with the Cable Companies or PBS techs, you will get; blank stares, help desk happy voices, it's not our problem, we don't support TVGOS, etc.

Personally, I think that the digital transition has killed TVGOS. It ain't comin bak, no more, no more.

Start looking for a replacement DVR that is easy to program.

No, wait, try to find one! Blue Ray along with Cable Company & Dish Network, etc. DVR's have killed the market for a stand-alone DVR's.

But there s always TIVO $$$

Recorder is not showing tv listings

I spoke with Toshiba tech support today (800-631-3811). They have an advanced services team that focuses on TV Guide On Screen. Learned the following:

- The TV Guide On Screen signal is updated 4x / day and is broadcast by your service provider
- The broadcast channel varies depending on what the service provider chooses (though typically a major network or PBS station)
- TV Guide On Screen has been doing some reprogramming and updates recently and this has resulted in many sporadic outages

If you ARE not receiving your listings, it's one of two things - either your DVR or the signal from the cable company.

- If you are having issues, call Toshiba and let them know, they will walk through some basic troubleshooting to narrow down if the problem is the DVR or the TV Guide On Screen signal.
- If the issue is the TV Guide On Screen signal, they will be able to report the issue to TV Guide On Screen and let them know their is an issue.

After that - it's in someone else's hands!
