Channel setup on Magnavox MDR865H/F7 HD DVR/DVR recorder with digital tuner
This is a connectivity issue. I was given a Magnavox model mdr865h/f7 HD DVR/DVD recorder with digital tuner that I cannot get to load channels during setup: I select the cable option for loading channels, but whether I am hooked up to the cox standard top box or the cox mini box with coax connectors and also using HDMI, component, or composite (RCA RWY cables), connections the result is the same; no channels. Internet search has provided no solution. A review on Amazon.com of this unit had a review by someone who could not solve this problem nor, could he get cox to solve the problem . The unit powers up, the DVD player works but that is far as I can go. If the problem is a systemic one, perhaps someone else has encountered this and has a solution to share.
