You haven't specified which type equipment you are experiencing the problem. With our DISH Network receivers, if the EPG does not display you can do 1 of 2 things. First, unplug the receiver from the electrical outlet for 10 seconds and plug back in. This causes the receiver to reboot and re-acquire satellite signal. Then it will download the EPG.

If you still don't have the EPG, you can then run a check switch test. Press the Menu button on the remote. Main Menu will display on the TV screen. Press 6 (System Setup), 1 (Installation), and 1 (Point Dish) on the number pad. Highlight the Check Switch button on the right of the screen and press select. On the Installation Summary screen, highlight the Test button on the bottom left. Press select. The receiver will perform a switch installation check. After the test is completed, exit out of all screens till you are back to the TV screen. The receiver will acquire satellite signal and download the EPG. I hope this helps.

How do I access a programme that I have recorded via epg using the original remote control. How do I set the time on my tv.


You don't mention the make and model of the TV, so it's not possible to give a specific answer.

The EPG is normally detailing the TV guide. I wouldn't expect to find my recorded programs listed in the EPG. There'll be a different way of accessing timer recordings. Check your user manual. Same for setting the time. It will be listed in the user manual.

Get free view on my lg smart tv


if you are referring to the EPG Freeview, this can be easily accessed by Menu, system, settings and look for EPG settings, you can switch from the LG look or the Freeview look, but i can only summise this is what you are after as your question is a title statement and not a direct question

Problems on epg information on some channels but not others


Is the episode guide from OTA channels or a set-top box (Tivo, cable)? Make sure that the time is set correctly. In my area, the automatic time information comes from the OTA PBS station. That station's time often is off by a few minutes. (Similarly, when the time is set manually, the clock also drifts on one of my TVs.)

If you get your information from a set top box, try rebooting (or unplugging for a minute) the unit. This sometimes will reset the data.

If those two suggestions don't help, the problem is from the stations/EPG provider. Sometimes the provider's clock is off and this causes the issue. You could try contacting that provider if their clock or program list is routinely off. (If this is related to an event that took longer than scheduled, there isn't much to stop the issue.)

I hope this helps.

Cindy Wells
(Last weekend, my cable box had the correct time. The EPG insisted on showing the programs for 5-6 hours later. Since the provider is a local cooperative, we had to wait until Monday for the support staff to reset the EPG at their computers. Rebooting the set-top box was tried, but didn't help.)

RDR-HXD890 gets stuck in update mode


"If your recorder is stuck with UPDATE in the display you will need to hold the Power button for more than five seconds to perform a "soft" reset. It will switch off for a few seconds, then quickly and before it powers itself back on again , TAP THE POWER BUTTON 2 OR 3 TIMES , and it should say WELCOME and will then go to a black screen with no freeview channels

if you use easy setup and select location FRANCE or BELGIUM it wont lock up on epg update and will allow you to operate the machine

but epg wont work

this is a temporary fix until Sony provides a fix for epg problem.

Bauhn Manual for APVR-9650T


http://forums.whirlpool.net.au/archive/2211037


Quoting from above:

Bauhn 1TB PVR
model APVR-9650T
a REVIEW

Spent a couple of hours with this PVR, comparing it with an earlier model Bauhn 1TB PVR (AS-PVR1000R, 2011).
Bought on sale Wednesday, $199.
[Only commented on differences between models. Have previously reviewed the older model - which still is a reasonably good PVR.]
Summary: not bad, some good features in a budget PVR, and a couple of annoying issues that weren't in older models (which should be easy to fix in firmware). Works well, responsive remote, although I prefer the button press of earlier model.
But product quality control is worryingly patchy. Bought 2 units, 1 was dead out of box!! Confirms my advice to buy 2 to get 1 that works well. (On power up with good broadcast signal, TV displayed Bauhn logo for few seconds, then blank screen, sound of HDD, and never advanced past "----" on PVR. Tried many times on different video outputs & TVs.)
I'll probably be returning this PVR within 60 days as the few annoying aspects outweigh the added features for my needs, over my older BAUHN PVR.
Features:
Series Record:
Records all programs with that title on that network. (Still assessing if SERIES RECORDs program on more than 1 network - e.g. records Simpsons on 10 & 11, but does it SERIES RECORD Mythbusters on SBS, as well as 7Mate?)
Good if you are away from PVR as it changes recording times to latest EPG (as long as broadcast sticks to EPG times), if program schedule frequently changes, and does not record if program is dropped from schedule.
(I have returned from overseas to find what I had set to record was not what was recorded as the program line-up had changed. SERIES RECORD should solve that.)
But... takes up many available recording schedules including ones you may not want recorded (PVR has maximum of 50 TIMER schedules, so for example SERIES RECORD "QI" on ABC1 - with 13 episodes/wk, would occupy over ¼ of available schedules!).
Also you cannot pad these recordings - adding a few minutes before/ after in case program starts early/ ends late. Changed recording time may conflict with other recording schedules meaning program may not record (check by EPG Search). Takes some getting used to to ensure consistent recordings.
Setting up standard weekly etc TIMERS may be preferable & more predictable.
EPG Search:
Searches for all programs by title within 7 day EPG, on all channels. Shows & allows setup of recording schedule, and if there are conflicts between SERIES RECORD & recordings, to set Priority.
Scheduled Recordings from EPG:
Settings for recording Once, Daily, Weekly, Weekday/ Weekend.
You can pad scheduled EPG recording times by up to only 10 minutes, in case program airs early/late.
(The older 1000 model can pad up to many hours - e.g. to record multiple consecutive shows on 1 recording, and the recording date can be changed to skip that particular recording. You can manually set up recordings to achieve this on this PVR, but then lacks program name, which you can rename. An advantage if you are running out of schedule recording slots.)
Time Shift:
Up to 2 hours, which is adequate. Can set to always be on, so can pause/rewind live programs when you wish. (1000 model can be set to almost limitless Time Shift. Mine is set to 4 hours.)
Editing Recordings:
Editing would suggest removing unwanted sections, but this PVR simply marks sections of the recording for viewing, skipping the unwanted. The file remains the same size, and copying the file to another device leaves the original unedited recording.
Settings:
MENU-PVR Settings: (handy when setting up)
Set Time Shift length (30-120 min) + Time Shift Function (Disable / Enable)
Playback Start Position (Beginning of program / Continuing from where you were watching) Continuing is handy.
Auto Play Next Program (Disable - stops playing at end at end of recording / Enable to watch recording then next recording )
MENU-Settings:
Audio&Video Output Settings
(set to suit your TV etc)
Time (by State & Daylight Saving - otherwise EPG & recording time will be incorrect)
Channel List (press OK during live TV):
Can delete unwanted channels (which the 1000 model annoying could not).
Can set up 1 set of Favourite channels
External USB Storage:
2 USB (1 front, 1 rear) capable of accessing larger HDD (tried with 3TB) formatted as NTFS or FAT32. So quite useful, as I found on 1000 model.
Copying is painfully slow. On 1000 model, crashes occurred when storage for recordings was set to a USB device (MENU-PVR-PVR Setting-Recording Storage) - don't do it!
USB drives less than 16GB can't be formatted on PVR.
WARNING: If PVR freezes (too high load on processor like copying too much or Copying + Recording) while writing to external HDD, HDD may be corrupted when you are forced to unplug PVR from power! (Have had Seagate HDD totally corrupted twice with 1000 model - files cannot be recovered due to storage method). Best not to copy too much at time to HDD!
Networking: (Not assessed yet)
Via Ethernet cable. Can access recordings, photos, music on PC, and transfer to PC from PVR. Access is typically MUCH faster than to USB storage. But requires files to be in set folder, which may be unsuitable.
Media Player (Not assessed yet)
Photo & Music Players have been added . Playing MP4 files is not great.
Annoying aspects...
OSD can't be hidden when using Pause
Pausing live program, or recording leaves an information box on screen - there is no way to remove it. Pausing a recording is something I regularly do, to view details. The PAUSE bar includes the EDITING tools, making it larger than normal. As the on-screen-display covers nearly 20% of the screen, at the bottom, subtitles and information bars broadcast with the program can't be seen! You can only increase the Transparency, meaning you can see through the OSD (MENU-Settings-PVR Setting 1-60%). However, setting a high level of Transparency makes using any OSD difficult.
Slow boot time
It takes about 35 seconds to.power up from Standby to fully operational. While that is marginally faster than the older 1000 model, it is slow.
Slow navigation within EPG, Timer & Media Browser etc
There are no P+/P- (Page up/down) buttons as on 1000 model. Moving up/down a list to select between possibly hundreds of programs (recordings) is SO slow - moving 1 at a time instead of a page at a time. (Strangely the P+/P- can still be found in the onscreen keyboard when you Rename recordings or do an EPG Search. There it performs a keyboard shift function.)
Slow navigation within Recordings & Time Shift TV
FF/REW speed is a maximum of 32X, against 64X on 1000 model.
There is a very handy undocumented feature of FF/REW by holding down the right/left arrows - located around the circular OK button (while watching your time position on the progress bar). Handy for moving quickly to position in program or skipping ads. (I found this on the earlier 500 & 1000 models.) However it is SO much slower to FF/REW on this model.
Bright Standby light
As in the older model, the very bright blue light can be annoying, but easily fixed with a small piece of black electrical tape or similar.
PVRs take time to discover their flaws & features, so I'll keep exploring ;-)

How to use EPG


EPG or Electronic Programme Guide is the on-screen version of a tv guide for digital tv. The remote control usually has a dedicated button for the display of the EPG.

The information displayed is often incomplete and some digital boxes or tv sets perform better than others though in theory it needs no setting up. Once the box has searched and made a channel list the programme guide will be available.

Pioneer dvd recorder dvr-530H


The EPG is the electronic program guide trying to download TV listings.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Electronic_program_guide

This is normal for this player. To disable this, you would need to turn off the TV guide function.
