Sony RDR-HDX 870 Digital EPG Not showing Channel Info


Standard Member
I have just purchased a Sony RDR-HXD870 DVD Recorder and set it up as per the operating instructions. When I acess the Digital EPG certain channels such as Channel 4, Channel 4+1, E4, ITV2, ITV3, ITV4 and certain other random channels have no program information. I can receive the channels and the signal strength is good and all other channels have program infornmation. I am aware this model had a problem with recording from the EPG and because of this Sony released a firware upgrade, but my recorder seems to already have this installed.

Has anybody else had this problem or have any ideas what may be causing this?

Many thanks


it can take a day of it updating its epg to get the epg fully populated

and sometimes channel hopping around on the day required can bring up what you need so if it isnt there at first try moving the epg up and down a bit on screen

it should update the epg several times a day

and v1.65 is the latest firmware but that fixed losing series linked timer recordings

just checked mine for today and all those channels are fully populated :)

bear in mind it wont update if you are using it and leaving it on all the time
