Some DSR530 questions
I just upgraded from an old basic StarChoice box to the DVR and have a few questions for users who are more familiar with this.
I went through the "DSR 530 discussion" thread [34 pages] and it was so painful and I still haven't found what I'm looking for.
The manuals that came with mine don't really give a lot of info ... maybe I'm missing a manual. I have very little info on running the PVR.
Maybe a good thread would be a "DSR530 Tips and Tricks".
Anyway, here goes:
1. The installer hooked up the box to the tv using the component cables, not the dvi-hdmi cable that was also in the box. Any reason for this? I would asume the latter should be a better connection, but maybe he knows something I don't.
2. When you are on your "Favorites", the guide only shows the channels I want, but when I use the channel up/down key, it still hit's the unwanted channels. Same for locked out channels. Is there a work-around?
I noticed if I hit the 'favorites' key, it goes up to the next favorite channel - is there another key that will go down to the next fav?
I had more questions, but forget them now. Oh well.
