i have since tried smackbottom's suggestion to split the cable from wall, so my setup is now:
cable from wall to splitter, one cable to rf in on panny one to rf in on cablebox. rf out on panny not connected. rf out on cablebox to tv. the rest is still the same.
i am also using the ir blaster.
hpe this helps,
Thanks for the info. I tried that setup last night and seems to be working good!
On the Panasonic I can see the "regular"\
on digital cable channels (ch2-->100). I am able to record these channels by setting the DVR on the particular channel. The TVGOS is also working for Ch2-->100 but obviously doesn't show any information for the digital channels (ch 101-->999).
By switching to IN3, I am able to view or record what is coming through the digital cable box (ch 2--> 999).
As followup questions:
1. If I want to record any of the digital channels (ch 101-->999), I have to set the DVR to a line in channel (in my case IN3), and leave cable box on the station that I want to record, so in that scenario, it is not possible to watch a different channel while it is recording, correct?
2. You are using the IR Blaster because you have a universal remote, I'm assuming? I am not able (or unsure of how) to control my cable box with the Panny's remote so I'm guessing that's why you are using the IR Blaster?
Thanks again for you help!
