The on-screen display went garbled, but i could still enter recording event info with difficulty.
I reset the machine (Stop + ON in ON state).
TR on-screen display no longer appears at all, via menu/Timer Recording or the remote TR button.
Perhaps this is intentional - TR disabled via download over cable?
I had the same problem. Contacted Pioneer tech support, they had me send the machine in even though it was out of warranty; apparently a hard drive problem that they were researching. They sent it back with HDD replaced, worked again.

I'm sorry for the difficulties you're experiencing as the Video output settings on the DVD Recorder is set incorrectly. Please perform a power resetting by following the below steps and check the operation. To perform power resetting, unplug the DVD Recorder from wall outlet for more than 5 minutes and press and hold the Power button for more than 15 seconds. It will discharge power from all circuit and move the Recorder to factory default.
Thanks for understanding. Please let me know if the issue persists.
OTR is one-touch recording on most of my VCR/DVD burners where you set the length of time to record from the tv. In my manual it is the Express Record feature. Press the REC button several times to advance the record time by 30 minutes. In your case it might refer to On Timed Record.
Use the COPY button on the front of the unit when the tape you want to record is in the VCR and a blank DVD is in the DVD tray. If you have the A/B Edits set, only the A/B editted sections will copy. (Copy protected tapes and DVDs can't be copied.) (Or the timed transfer described below)
Copying DVDs to VCR tapes can be done in a timed record mode. You can either use Menu > Disc > Copy Disc then press OK or Menu > Timers > Set Transfer and press OK. Then press Info to name the timed event followed by Done and OK, if desired. Press OK to highlight Copy From/To and make sure to select the correct source and destination and press OK. Next set the day and time that you want the transfer to take place (a couple of steps, press OK between them and when done). Then adjust the quality if needed and press OK. Finally highlight Keep Timer and press OK again. Make sure the correct tape and DVD are in place for the timed event.
Depending on what you set the unit for, I'd look for signs of power failures (which mess up most timed record functions). Then I'd double-check the time you set it to transfer and the A/B edits function. (A/B edits lets you grab small clips from an Indexed tape. Either index the tape by playing it and pressing the Insert A/B edit button (on the VCR/DVD, possibly on the remote) or delete A/B edits.)

Change the Scart setting (in the setup menu) from the default setting (RGB) to the other available setting (CVSC?).
I have a problem with my box restting the clock on a random basis, making it impossible to set a timer to record anything - let us know if you get the same problem via this site!
I purchased this same unit yesterday from the PX Power Zone. I hooked up the unit and even managed to record a few minutes of a show. I then went into setup and made a few changes. Now, I have no display at all from the unit. Does anyone know how to reset the unit back to factory settings? Please email me at email@example.com. Many thanks!
