I have just purchased a Pioneer set top box and I am very impressed with it too. I have tried three to date and this is by far the best, no blocking, every channel found and a superb picture and sound. However, the problem I have is when I come to record something on my VCR. If I record with the TV on and tuned to the digital channel I require, it is fine but when I turn the TV off and programme record, the picture is fine but threre is no sound. Has anyone got any ideas on this? Any help appreciated.
