Just got a dual tuner DVR from Comcast. It is connected to the TV, but I'm also trying to connect it through a DVD recorder into a second TV input. Used RCA connectors from DVR-out to DVD in. Get nothing but a blue screen. the DVD -> TV connection is good, since DVD's play fine. Any suggestions? Thanks. Gus
If you're using the SA8000HD, it won't output to the component out and composite/S video out at the same time. To get program to your DVD recorder - record to you DVR hard drive then use the "copy to VCR" mode to download to DVD recorder. You can still use the SA8000HD to record, play other recorded programs , or watch a live channel while doing the download. Its a little awkward but not too bad once you get used to the process.
Could you explain what "copy to VCR" mode is?
Since not all dual tuner cable DVR's are the same, it is necessary to describe the brand/model that you have. Also, describe the software/guide it uses. And your specific location is always helpful.
Moved this thread since it does not concern HD issues.
gillcup - to use the "copy to VCR" mode on the SA8000HD, press the "mydvr" button in the upper center of the remote. This will bring up a list of the recorded programs on the DVR hard drive. Highlight the recording you wish to copy, press the select button - the menu that pops up will contain a "copy to VCR" option.
