Pause Live TV using TV Receiver linked to HDD


Standard Member

I have a Sony HDD/DVD/Freeview recorder (RDR-HXD870) and Sony LCD TV (26S3000U). They are connected via a new HDMI cable.

The HXD870 manual says that I can Pause TV, using either it's own digital receiver, or the one in the TV. I have changed the setting so that it uses the TV receiver - but the Pause function does not work. The recorder displays a message saying 'Can't Rec'.

The reason I chose the TV receiver is because I wanted to see if it it is possible to pause the TV on one receiver, while also recording another programme on the other receiver.

Anybody have any ideas? Thanks.
