View Full Version : Advice for Rogers PVR and DVD recorder hookups

12-01-2010, 04:16 AM
I recently switched to Rogers (Canadian) HD with a PVR. However, I'd also like to hook up my DVD recorder to keep certain things and, of course, to watch DVDs. The guide in the manual and online are wrong according to the guy who came to hook up the PVR. He told me all I have to do is hook the DVD recorder up to the TV and I will be able to record. Is it really that easy? Shouldn't it have to be hooked up to the PVR as well? If it makes any difference my recorder is a Panasonic DMR-E50.

The cableguy is assuming you want to record directly from the tv. I am assuming you want to record directly from your PVR (whichever show you happened to record). Depending on how many inputs you have, you may be able to do both. Follow your manual.
