I have a Sony HDD/DVD Recorder (RDR-HX710). In the manual it mentions that in some places it is possible to automatically get programme titles from Teletext.
I have tried setting this up but it does not seem to want to work. Has anyone got this working? and if so what settings have you used etc.?

Hi Nety,

    They are probably referring to Digital Teletext ... see http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Teletext

OK got this going a couple of days ago. Seems that it is particular about the quality of your reception. I was getting mine for an aerial on the roof and noticed that when viewing teletext pages there was some corruption in the text (picture was a bit grainy too). I then setup reception through the free view channels on telstras cable and bingo.. all works Smile

Note this was after being informed by Sony NZ that it did not work on teletext in NZ... good to see they know their own products Tongue out

Considering virtually every time in the evening I look at teletext page 310 to see whats on, and at least one of the channels says that its information is unavailable I would expect this to not work very well.

How well does it go?

Now that I have got it working through the Telstra cable 100% so far.
