Yeah, if they fix the component output, I'll be able to switch between satellite and DVD without having to adjust all the picture settings.

make sure your VCR is on the correct input channel. Mine for instance, I've got my 811 going to the 1st input on my VCR. Thats what I would check first, mine still works, and I've got 334, so that is what I would guess.

The 811 doesn't have an RF modulator, so your VCR has to record from a "Video" or "Line" input, not a TV channel.

:confused: Good Morning I think? Talked with my Neighbor about my problem, He suggested we try his VCR. Hooked it up, the same condition? so we took my VCR to his place and it worked vine. No problem rec or playing. Both systems where hooked up the same way, our conclusion is the 811 is not passing a signal to the VCR'S. Now is my 811 gone bad? or has the software upgrade something to Du white it? After Hi left me with my problem I Hooked up my over the AIR Ant, the VCR worked rec and Playing. So what schooled I Du? or can Du.:mad:

Most VCR remotes have a button for Source. This switches between RF and Composite inputs. For your own benefit, you should have RCA Composite from 811 Output to VCR Input and RCA Composite from VCR Output to TV Input. When you want to record from the 811, set the TV to the Composite input (Input 1 or Input 2) and hack the VCR Source button until you see the VCR output. This should be the 811 programming. Hope this helps.

ours had done the same thing. Pulled the plug on the 811 and plugged it back in and all was well. Try that and see if it helps.

Haven't checked mine yet, but I hope they fix the colors on the component outs. 3.34 color fixes just plan suck....way too washed out.
