I have just purchased a Panasonic DMR-EH57 DVD recorder.
It is connected to a slightly old Sony television, and a Telstra SKY box.
My problem is that I can't tune the channels on the DVDR: Manual Tuning gives the message "No signal" and the Automatic SETup Tuning says that no channels are found.
It seems to want to be connected to an aerial, but that doesn't seem necessary since we have the SKY box, right?
I have a coaxial cable that came with the DVDR, but it has a "fatter" connecting wire than what will fit into the SKY box (it has a plug for one of the needle-like coaxial cable connections).
The TV only has 3 sets of yellow/black AV plugs and a "thicker" coaxial plug.
I can currently only record shows based on whatever channel the SKY box is on, but I was under the impression that I could record shows by the G-codes or a timer, so I didn't necessarily have to have the TV set on the channel.
If anyone can offer some advice, it would be a big help and likely save a marriage (it was my husband's idea to buy the DVDR!).
