I’ve checked every forum I could, but I haven’t been able to get the specific help I need. I really hope that someone here can take on my challenge:
I recently bought a Panasonic DMR-ES35V DVD/VHS Recorder, and am having trouble incorporating in to my system. I bought it simply to transfer VHS tapes to DVD (which I can figure out how to do) and to transfer shows from my DirecTV Tivo playlist to DVD (which I cannot figure out how to do). I already have a DVD player, so I don’t need to use this as my DVD player (though I would if it made sense).
The DVD/VHS Recorder has 2 RCA Inputs, 1 Component Output, and 2 RCA Outputs.
I also have:
DirecTV HD DVR (HR10-250), which has an HDMI connection to my TV, 1 Component out connection, 1 RCA output, and 2 Satellite feeds in. I do not currently have an RF In or Out.
I also have a Sony Dream Theater System, which I am now using for both my surround sound and my DVD player. It has a Component output and 2 RCA Inputs.
My TV is a Sony HDTV, with a Component Input, an HDMI Input, and 2 RCA Inputs.
I can’t seem to get the TV to play through the new DVD recorder (which I assume I need to do if I’m going to record from my DirecTV TiVo to my DVD recorder).
Can someone please recommend the ideal solution for me? Your help would be greatly appreciated.
