I recently bought a Sony HX510 and have got a number of issues with it. I am really flumoxed as I consider myself to be technically pretty savvy! I have a Pace Digibox connected to the line 3 of the DVD recorder by SCART. The line out of the DVD recorder goes to line 1 in of my Sony TV. This is the way the manual shows connection for this particular set up. Now my problems start. If i press the system menu whilst watching Sky, the menu appears over a "smeared" greenish picture in the background. I have to press the line input button to get back to Sky. Surely this should not be an issue? Next problem is just bizarre. I was watching C4 on Wednesday and decided to record Lost. L1 input on the DVD is whatever you are watching, so I set it to record for 1and a half hours. Timer starts counting down no problem, so I turn off the TV and go to bed. Next evening I turn the box etc and press title list. Lo and behold there it is. I press play and start watching. Well, that is until the time I turned the TV off and the picture went! Surely the TV is just a display and turning it off should not influence a recording? To be sure I tried again with a short TV recording, and same problem! I am totally lost myself! Please help.
