Question

Hookup the player to Cable Box or Satellite Receiver.

Answer

  1. Connect your Satellite or Cable TV signal to the ANTENNA IN jack on your Cable Box/Satellite Receiver.
  2. If your Cable Box/Satellite Receiver has a single ANTENNA OUT or TO TV jack: Connect the supplied RF coaxial cable to the ANTENNA OUT/TO TV jack of the Cable Box/Satellite Receiver and to the ANTENNA IN jack on the rear of the Recorder.

    If your Cable Box/Satellite Receiver has AUDIO/VIDEO OUT jacks: Connect them to the Recorder’s EXT 2 VIDEO IN and AUDIO IN jacks. These jacks are red and white (AUDIO) and yellow (VIDEO). Use the supplied audio and video cables, which have red/white/yellow markings.
  3. Connect another RF coaxial cable to the Recorder’s (ANTENNA) OUT jack and to the ANTENNA IN or RF IN jack on your TV.
  4. Connect the power cords of the Recorder, Cable Box/Satellite Receiver, and TV to a power outlet.
  5. Press STANDBY/ON to turn on the Recorder. Set the Recorder to channel 3 or 4 (your Cable Box/Satellite Receiver’s output channel) if you used an RF coaxial cable to connect the Cable Box/Satellite Receiver to the Recorder. Set the Recorder to EXT 2 if you used those jacks on the Recorder to connect to the Cable Box/Satellite Receiver.
  6. Turn on the TV and the Cable Box/Satellite Receiver. Set the TV to channel 3 to receive the picture from the Recorder (if you used the RF coaxial cable as shown for step 3).
