Satellite vs. Sony DVD/VHS Recorder

Hi everyone. I have a problem setting up my DVD Recorder. I have always had cable until yesterday, when I switched to DirectTv. When I tried to reprogram my DVD (I record alot!) it wouldn’t work – went to “Easy Setup” and walked through the steps, switched from Cable to Antenna, and then it began the programming channels part - went as high as chl 68 and stopped - said it was completed. Which I knew immediately was wrong. Basically, I can watch a DVD, but I cannot get it set up to record – what am I doing wrong!!! Many thanks for any help you can give me. :sad: Susie
