51F500 setup problems-help
just had my new 51F500 delivered last week. Hope you all can help me iron out a few bugs.
1/plugged in all the cables as per the Hitachi diagram. I have a VCR, DVD, and Bell ExpressVu. Cannot seem to tape my tv programs to the VCR. Plugged 1 vcr to inputs 4 and 5 using AV cables. Can play tapes fine on input 4. How do I tape from my satellite tv?
2/this is weird. I thought I had everything except problem 1/ worked out. Until I sat down to use the tv tonight and realized I seem to have some co exstance problems. I program the DVD code to the Hitachi remote. Fine, it works. Then I program the ExpressVu IRD code (32) to Hitachi remote. Seems fine. Then I realize the remote seems to lose the DVD remote code when I use the remote to control the IRD. So I reprogram the DVD. Then I lose the IRD. I observe that the IRD, Expressvu, DVD, VCR codes seem to either cancel each other out, or somehow have problems co existing on the Hitachi remote. I place the DVD and IRD on top of the tv, on opposite ends of the set. The VCR was on the floor.
Advice? I am bringing the remote and instructions tomorrow night to Future Shop. Maybe there is problem with remote??
