Bought a DMR-E85H at Future Shop. It was a demo. I got it for a song(that's probably why it won't work).

Any way hooked it up to my HK and my motorola cbt. Everything works, except I can't access the Guide menu to set it up. I just get a Black screen.

Everything is hooked up correctly. Still black screen when I try to enter the TvGuide.

Any thoughts?

thks :D

Try using a splitter, and send a cable directly to the unit, instead of from the cable box. That will get you analog ch listings.

And this isn't a digital box is it? If it is, you're going to run into a wall-these things don't work well-if at all, with digi boxes...

And the recorder must stay off for a full 24 hours-sometimes a little longer to download guide info. No turning on to peek, no scheduled timer recordings during this period..

Dazed and confused over high tech.

Sigh...Concrap. The Internet Overlord Cometh
They're not com-tastic!
