    Hi UK
    I have just bought a PHILIPS HDRW720.
    I use a NTL digital pace box and have been
    told that the GUIDE PLUS+ will not work
    with my PACE box. I would be greatful if
    some one could let me know if this is true
    or not before i get started.
    Cheers Auto

    Hi there,

    I have the same HDRW720 and a Pace NTL box and the guideplus works just fine for me.

    That said, I do know that there are a number of different pace models so I can't say for sure that it will be the same. Do you know which yours is?

    Mine outputs both the usual digital NTL channels on one analog channel (and digitally via scart) but is also one that carries BBC1, BBC2, ITV and CH4 on analog too, and I know not all of them do this. As the guideplus gets its details from analog ITV then this may be important.

    Then again, if you still have your old TV Aerial connections then you can plug this in to the uhf socket on the back of the HDRW720 and plug the NTL box in via scart and this will work fine for the Guideplus.

    Hope that helps.

    Guide+ have also split NTL into two regions - you won't get the region split until after the 1st download - then you'll need to go back to set up menu - choose your region - along with the new regions you'll also have a new choice of digiboxes

    Hi :thumbsup:
    Thanks for the help it has put my mind at
    ease i was starting to get worried.
    My pace digital box model is Dl4001NC ,will
    it work with this model...IF IT DOES'T COULD
    THIS WORK?... When i used the cable
    feed as just an aerial before I had the digital
    box i received bb1,bbc2,itv,ch4 & 5 so if
    I got a 2way splitter and split the cable
    feed to the cable box and also split it to
    the HDRW720, do you think this might work.
    This might not make much sense but it is
    just an idea. Sure if it comes to it I can just put my
    old TV Aerial back up.
    Cheers
