I want to buy a Replay, but I have one question. When connecting this to my Directv is it true that PPV channels 100-199 won't show up on the Replay menu? I would have to have each connected to it's own input on my TV?
Theedge- Thanks for responding. So , if I understand correctly PPV's title/description eventually show up with Replay. If you turn the power off to the Replay will the signal bypass it, so you can use your Direct TV receiver? I don't don't have any free inputs, but I would like to be able to watch the Satellite without the Replay.
What you can do is let it pass thru your replay (with it on) but use your sat remote. Replay will think you are on the same channel, but that doesn't matter. The one problem with viewing the sat receiver guide while it goes thru the replaytv box is that there is a lag as the receiver signal gets digitally encoded in the replay box and then decoded before getting pumped to your tv. So moving around in menus can be a little tiresome.
I started with a 3060. Later sold it and replaced it with a 4k and later added 2 5k units. Still love 'em and am resisting HD.
Thanks ChampaignWalt. I appreciate your help. I have one more question. Is it possible to still use the IR Blaster to record shows on my VCR if I have a Replay connected? I record movies and TV shows that I keep on tape. I would think the satellite timer would take over if it was used.
