Please keep in mind that my system was working fine before the remote swap so this is not a hardware problem.
Somehow while pressing buttons on the remotes to program the new one (learning method) I accidentally changed some settings on my 533 so now it won't record or output any sound.
The weird thing is that if I play an old recording off the hdd the audio is fine. Same for the dvd player. It's only new recordings that won't record audio. I finalized a dvd and played it on my computer as a test and still no sound.
It's not just recordings though, there's no audio even watching tv through the 533.
I tried swapping the inputs of my cable box and 533 on the tv and the problem was still present with the 533 confirming it's the recorder that got screwed up.
Can someone please steer me in the right direction as to what settings might have gotten messed up?
