Question about Mico DVDR310 DVD Recorder
I have s Mico R311i DVD Recorder and Sky Digibox. Could anyone tell me the correct way to set it up please. I do not have a manual. I have a problem with the DVD not recognising the TV channels
If it's the Espejo 311i model (mine was £30 from Morgan) I don't think you'll have any joy trying to select channels direct from the unit. Mine works fine with a Freeview box but channel selection is strictly on the latter, then the SCART goes into the recorder's No. 2 socket (No. 1 goes on to the TV). You can record whatever the box is receiving by selecting 'EXT2' as the source. Even if you never record analogue it's a good idea to plug an aerial feed into the Mico so it can set its clock. Note PDC doesn't work (for me anyway) when recording via the SCART. If someone has set it up strangely you can reset from scratch by unplugging, holding the front panel On switch in, then reconnecting to the mains while keeping the button pressed until the first setup screen appears on your TV. It will auto-tune to any analogue signals it finds on the aerial input. I could probably scan at least some of the manual if you are really stuck.

Tips for a great answer:
Get some double-screened satellite cable and fit a female TV plug to it (or a male plug with an adapter). Connect it to RF Output 2 at the rear of your Digibox. Fit a TV plug to the other end and plug it into your TV.
Temporarily disconnect the aerial feed from the Digibox aerial socket. Switch the Digibox on to get a picture on your main TV. The Sky Digibox normally sends its signal out on UHF channel 68 so go to the second TV and tune it to 68 (or tune it till it finds the Sky picture).
Now plug the aerial cable back into the Digibox. If there is now interference on the Sky picture on the second TV (or on the terrestrial channels) your Sky signal on 68 is causing interference. Press [services] 401 [select]* and set the RF output to a different UHF channel number. You need to connect it via a Scart lead on your main TV in order to see the menu.
*In the new EPG (April 2009) it's [services] 001 [select]
Try each RF output channel number in turn (21 - 69) and retune the second TV until you get clean pictures on the terrestrial channels and the Sky channel. Also check the picture from the VCR (if connected).
This is just a brief overview. If you need a real in-depth explanation you should read the "Piping TV Around the House" Ebook by satcure.
