GoVideo / just got cable box-cant display chanels

I have had my govideo for over a year and had it hooked up to basic cable with no problems recording w/timer and setting chanels. I just had a cable box installed, now with the govideo on chanel 3 all that displays is the channel that I am on with the cable remote,I cannot set the channel on the timer to record another station and using the video remote the other channels wont display.

How do you hook up cords to cable box & television


WELL IT SEEMS U HAVE TWO PROBLEMS :
1ST YOUR rF SIGNAL IS NOT GETTING THRU , THIS IS A ROUND CABLE WITH A SCREW ON END TO IT , THIS ONE MUST 1ST COME INTO YOUR HOME AND GO TO CABLE BOX , THEN LEAVE OUT OF CABLE BOX AND ENTER VCR THEN LEAVE OUT OF VCR AND GO TO RF INPUT OF TV ( HAS TO BE HOOKED THIS WAY WONT WORK ANY OTHER WAY) SET OUTPUT OF VCR TO CHANEL 3 SET OUTPUT OF CABLE BOX TO CHANNEL 3 SET TUNER OF VCR TO CHANEL 3 , AND LAST SET INPUT OF TV TO rf CABLE ,CHANEL 3 , NOW YOU CHANGE CHANELS ON CABLE BOX only
2ND YOUR DVD PLAYER HAS NO RF OUTPUT SO YOU NEED TO CONNECT BY ONE OF THESE MEANS (HDMI, RGB, COMPOSITE) ALL THESE REQUIRE A DIFFERENT CABLE YOU DECIDE , THERE HOOK UP IS PRETTY MUCH ONE WAY SO I WONT ELABORATE ON EACH METHOD , BUT TV NEEDS TO BE SET TO CORESPONDING INPUT TYPE YOU DECIDED ON

Timer recording will only record channel 3


Hello there,

This is most likely because the recorder is connected to a cable box. When setting the timer recording feature with a cable box as the source, you are not actually selecting the channel to record. You are selecting the recording source. The cable box sends all of the channels to the recorder using RF channel 3. In this case, the channel for recording will be whichever channel is selected on the cable box.

To help me give you a more definite answer, please can you answer the following quick questions:

1. Are you using a cable box?
2. If using a cable box, how is it connected to the recorder?
3. What is the model number of the GoVideo recorder, e.g. DVR4000?

Thanks,
BElectric

You should be able to get into a list of timer recordings by this method:
1 Open “Initial Setup” menu
Press the SETUP button or the TIMER button while the DVD is in
Stop or Play mode.
2 Select “PROG”
Use the ??/?? buttons to highlight “PROG” then press the
ENTER button.
3 Select the recording to be deleted
Use the ?? and ??/?? buttons.
Press the ?? button to move to the next setting.

The squares are the arrow keys! You should be able to delete the settings using these keys or some other key.
Next time you set a timer recording make certain you don't set the weekly setting!

Can you connect directly from the DTV converter to the DVD recorder input using RCA phono connector cables? You'll have to select the input on the recorder menu as well.

if you are useing a cabel box you need to split your cable before the cable box with a two set coupler and run the second cable line to the VCR input and this should solve your problem. if you want to record the chanels from your cable box and not watch a diffrent chanel you can leave it hooked as is and select the chanel you want to record with your cable box tunner and leave it turned on, set the vcr to record channel 3 or 4 which ever is the channel you leave your tv tunner on and record that way.

Timer recording on GoVideo VR2940


First, you need to have the cable directly input into the recorder.

If you only plug the cable box into the machine, you get what is happening now.
After splitting the cable, one side into te box and the other into the recorder, run the channel seek part of the program and it will scan all the channels available on the cable and place them in memory.

Then plug the output of the cable box into the other input on the recorder, and you get yor pay channels and upper tiers.

Your recorder is now a switching unit as well
