Pioneer PDP5070 - TV Guide feature with HDMI?



Hi all,

I just purchased a Pioneer PDP5070. It's a gorgeous unit, but it's also my first time buying any serious home theatre equipment, and I have not been able to get the built-in TV Guide feature to work yet. The manual says I have to have the cable plugged directly into the television (Ant. A/Cable) to slowly start to read in the tv data when the TV is turned off.

I'm using an HDMI cable from the HD Cable Box to the television though. Does anyone know how to get the TV Guide feature working without having to connect the cable directly to the television?

Is this is a US model by any chance? As the vast majority of members on this site are in the UK its probably not the case that people are ignoring you, more that they cant give you an answer as they are unfamiliar with the model. Best bet would be to post over at AVS and you'll hopefully get the response you need! :)
