    I have a telewest cable box [scientific atlanta explorer 4200 dvb]
    and pioneer 530 dvd recorder.

    the pioneer records using guideplus terrestial signal no problem, but I can't set up the telewest box as the model is not listed in the initial setup on the p 530.

    any ideas?

    cheers

    If you goto the setup in Guide Plus, select Settings>External Receiver>Continue>Cable>Other Providers then the scientific atlanta box is listed there. try these codes.

    Hi Bobcarb or anyone else,

    Did you ever get this to work?

    I've just got Telewest and a Pioneer 440 dvr, and I seem to have exactly the same problem.

    Can't find the right codes to get the DVR to communicate with the telewest box - I've got exactly the same one as you. (scientific atlanta 4200)

    any ideas much appreciated

    ta
    Andy

    I gave up with the sender cable, and just leave the telewest box on the channel I wish to record. this would only be a problem if I wanted to record more than one cable channel.

    Thanks for the reply... seems that Gemstar just haven't added this telewestbox to their lists, it's a bit annoying if you've had it for a year and they still haven't added it.

    ho hum

    Anyone else got any other ideas?

    Just incase anyone is having similar challenges, I got the red eye thing and after a bit of trial and error I think I've got it working pretty well.

    I think it's worth it too, not having to fiddle around with 2 boxes to programme something to record is nice.
