We recently purchased a Pioneer DVR-530H DVD recorder but although it plays DVDs we cannot get it to record either onto DVDR or HDD, from VCR or from our Sky+.
The setup is as follows: we have a TV with 2 Scart sockets- we have one of these connecting directly to our Sky+ box. The other goes to a multiScart socket which then connects to the DVR-530H and also a VCR. Additionally the DVR-530H is connected directly to the Sky+ box.
However, when we attempt to record from either VCR or Sky+ (making sure that we select the correct channel e.g L1, L2 etc. as stated in the manual) the recordings are all blank- nothing is picked up from either device.
We have also tried connecting both the Sky+ and the DVR-530H directly to the TV, but this doesn’t work either.
Given the expense of this equipment I would really appreciate an answer and an idea as to what we need to do, to get this working.
