    Hi all, Dads got the new Sony 890 recorder, the digi EPG seems quite poor compared to the guide plus. There is no list of fav progs or a profile.

    Also, the G+ will not download the grid, I have plugged in the anlogue tuner direct from antenna, teletext works fine and ITV1 is labelled and tuned correctly. Any other ideas?

    Is there a better digital egp guide on other makes/models like the guideplus?

    Cheers
    James

    the correct method would be to daisy chain from digital out to analogue in on the back of the 890 , using another male to female coax lead , then up to the tv

    also make sure you set the host channel to itv1 in the menus


    I prefer the digital epg myself , but bear in mind that different manufacturers have a different type of epg , so on the panny you get a different one again and cannot change it

    on the sony or pionner you have a choice of two

    on a vcr you have none , so any is better than nothing
