Can someone help me with something I'm obviously missing?
Ok, I have a Pioneer 5071 plasma and a DirecTV HD DVR (H20-100s). I have an activity which is "Watch TV" and it turns on the TV, changes it to the correct input, but doesn't turn on the HD-DVR. I have to hit the "Help" button, and when I tell it that the DVR isn't on, THEN it fixes it. This happens every time. What I am doing wrong?
More importantly, after this operation is completed, in the LCD screen, the only things I see are "Aspect", "List" and "Effect". I don't see any other DVR or TV function options. If I want, say, to use the TV's PIP function, I have to hit "Devices", then "TV" and find the right function. But if I want to change the channel on the DVR, I have to go back to "Watch TV", etc.
Is there a way to customize which device options you can control in the LCD screen when doing an ACTIVITY?
