I connected a newly-purchased LVW 2005 with my High Definition Dish network receiver, and though I can record a station that is tuned in using the Standard Defintion mode, I have yet to be able to get the 5005 to kick on for a preset timed scheduled program, via the satellite's event timer.
My JVC HR-VP720U VCR has always worked this way, using this receiver thru the AV1 connection, by leaving the unit always on, rather than following the recorder's method.
Is there something different about a VCR that makes it able to respond to a cable receiver's commands vs. a DVD recorder? Or is it just the 5005 that will not answer its signal?
To no avail, I've tried the RCA cables on both the AV2 (on the back) & AV1 (on the front). The receiver will click over to the proper channel, after setting up with the satellite system's scheduled timer, but the powered up recorder does not switch over to the Record function.
What could be wrong?
