Hi. I wrote about a week ago about connecting a cable box to the Sony XS955 television and to my personal DVR, which is a Sony HX715. Since then, the cable gent has come (and stayed for two hours!) and I've also spent a lot of time with a Sony-ite on the phone. Here are the connections I have, the results, and the problem I'd appreciate assitance with. First the connections:
Coaxial from the BOX'S Cable Out to the DVR's VHF IN
Coaxial from the DVR's VHF/UHF Out to the TV's UHF/VHF
HDMI Cable between the DVR and the TV (input 7)
Component between the TV (input 6) and the BOX
* TV viewing takes place on Channel 3 of the TV; works fine; by clicking ANT, I can watch the TV's own cable feed (I have coaxial coming from a splitter into the TV's Cable input). This obviously takes plae in Input 6
* Previously recorded items on the DVR (meaning from a totally different TV/Cable Box) work fine on Input 7. The play list displays; items play
* Problem: I can't record into the DVR. Nothing comes out. I was told that since the DVR and the Cable are connected through coax, this would work fine as long as I left the TV and the DVR on Ch.3. Absolutely nothing records.
