We can’t edit our own posts here? I thought I’d add more info to my original post…
I’m a brand new user of the EH75V. I’m also extraordinarily ignorant of this entire subject. Never had a DVD recorder for TV and so on. I still have problems figuring out how to respond to text messages my daughter sends me on my cell phone.
I’ve got a digital cable box, Samsung 40" LCD which is quite recent and has a multitude of inputs/outputs on the back.
I have the cable line going to the EH75V, then a coax back to the cable box. Composite (?) (red/white/yellow) from cable box to EH75V, and composite (?) going from EH75V to TV. I also have a Monster HDMI from EH75V to TV. I have the IR blaster set up (hopefully correctly).
The TV Guide appears to work once I let it run unattended overnight. However, I can’t seem to use it too well…I go to a program and hit Enter on the EH75V remote and nothing happens. This may be very related to my recording problem.
I can record a VHS tape to HDD and burn a DVD from the HDD although I apparently haven’t figured how to do it without playing the whole movie…I know I read there is a fast way to do it. That can wait.
I can record any television show/movie channel to the HDD (haven’t tried On Demand yet) but ONLY if I am watching the channel.
I tried manual recording and through the TV Guide. But, I can only record the channel the TV is on.
So, it appears that the EH75V isn’t “synched” with the TV somehow? I entered the TV code at one point (guessing what it was) but there is no where to verify what I input (that I can find) in the EH75V setup screens.
I’m at a loss.
NOTE: Also, my digital cable box has a “tv guide” and “on demand” functions. When connected to the EH75V, I can’t access those.
