I bought another Magnavox MDR513H as a backup to the unit I already have. But I can't get the new unit to associate L1 source with the cable box out cables. I moved the cables over from my first DVR and connected them the same way to the "new" unit so I know the physical connections are right. But it just keeps scanning through all channels and never stops. I don't remember how to get the new unit to see the cable box "out" as the L1 source, the way by my first DVR does. There must be some button or setting I have to set to make it take that connection for L1 and I don't remember how to do that.

Thank you october262. I will try it again tomorrow.
I can set my MDR513H's source for either viewing or recording to L1 even when the cable box is physically disconnected from the MDR513H. (The MDR513H remote's SOURCE button is used to set the source for viewing. The MDR513H remote's up and down navigational buttons (near the OK button) are used to set the source for recording.)
The MDR513H is no longer connected to an antenna but retains its broadcast channel list from when it was. It doesn't scan for channels when there is no signal from L1.
Have you set up the MDR513H analog/digital channels?Ignore list: hello_hello, tried, TechLord, Snoopy329
