If you use timer record then go into the timer section by clicking the [timer] button and setup your recordings (check manual) then click [timer] button again to come back to live TV.

If you want to look at the last 6 hours buffer click the [info] button and go surf, and even set areas to record to hard drive (read manual). Press [tuner] button to go back to live TV.

If you want to look at previous recordings on hard drive click the [browser] button and go pick one. [Play] to watch a recording then [stop] to go back to the browser. click [browser] button again to go back to live TV.
NOTE: the time given on the right of a picture in the browser is the length of the recording not the start or end time.

You can watch a channel and record from a different channel only if you connect antenna and wiring in the right way.

Connect antenna, or receiver box output to recorder input, or ensure it is already connected in the right way.

Connect DVD RW output to TV input, and eventually antenna output on DVD to antenna input on TV.

Put a blank CD inside and program the timer on DVD rw as shown in manual.

Watch TV, the DVD will record from selected channel at selected time without breaking the program on TV.

You can record a channel and watch the same channel at the same time. I will have to look into this more to see if theres another way.

    I suppose you got your connectors setup fine.



    Simultaneous record and play function.



    watching other tv programmes

    if there is no other device connected to ext2 aux, pressing TV/HDD will switch to the tv mode.



    use the tvs channel up and down button to select a diffrent tv channel.

    it should keep recording the channel set to record and you should be able to browse other channels and record the one you want.

CANNOT GET PHILIPS DVDR3305 TO RECORD ON PANASONIC TV.TX-L37D25B WHILE WATCHING ANOTHER CHANNEL?.


What is your source? Since the DVDR3305 has an analog PAL tuner and most TV stations are broadcasting in digital, you probably have some sort of set top box connected to the recorder. If you change the channel on the set top box, you will record the program on the new channel. If you are recording PAL and your TV has a PAL tuner, you should be able to just record one show while watching another with the DVDR3305 daisy-chained to the TV. Just make sure to change the TV channel not the channel on the DVDR3305.

If your TV has a digital tuner, you can split the signal before the set-top box to record one channel and watch another. (Note: basic splitters will cause some extra loss of signal and may reduce a digital signal below the threshold needed to tune in the signal. An amplified splitter can avoid this - when the amplifier is working properly.) Otherwise, you need a second set-top box (or a dual tuner set-top box).

On my set-up with an aerial antenna, I would put the splitter between the wall jack and the electronics. The incoming cable goes to the splitter, then cable 1 goes to the TV. Cable 2 goes to the set-top box. Tune the set-top box to the channel to record and check the settings with the TV set to the DVD source. (DVD set to record on Tuner (and the specific channel of the set-top box output) or front s-video or EXT1 or EXT2.) Then change the TV back to the TV source and change to the channel for the second program.


The manual for the DVDR3305 is available from Philips. The link to the manual is http://download.p4c.philips.com/files/d/dvdr3305_05/dvdr3305_05_dfu_eng.pdf .
I hope this helps.

(I actually use an A/B switch and do not try to watch a second program on the TV connected to the DVD recorder. However, most of my recordings are for time-shifting of programs that air when I can't watch any TV program.)

I purchased a MDR513h/f7 hdd & dvd Player/recorder for my cable TV. I can not watch one channel while recording another. Comast said I must have a dual turner and that is what I purchased (I think)....


This model has only one tuner, I'm afraid. You can only watch one channel at a time, unless you split the cable signal going into it. One side goes to the recorder, the other to the TV. Then you use the single tuner in the recorder to record and the TV's tuner to watch the other channel.

I HAVE A MAGNAVOX DVD RECORDER MWR10D6 AND I AM TRYING TO RECORD VHS TAPE FROM A VCR TO THE DVD RECORDER. CAN YOU HELP ME WITH THE CORRECT CORRECTIONS; NOTHING IS RECORDING


Play the video on your through your recorder if possible, then record it that way. It works for me. Just go to your watch tv setting and record it off channel three while the vcr plays the video.

Dvd recorder hard drive DVDR5350H


This depends on how your video signals are delivered to the box, in most cases terrestrial TV signals received by ariel, cable are passed through the recorder, then to your TV, this means you can record 1 channel on the box and view another, it appears that this recorder only has 1 tuner so you cannot record 1 station and watch another on the output of this box.

with regard to freeview / satellite tuning, these are connected directly to the DVR and they only have 1 channel to view at a time, so unless you acquire a satellite / cable tuner which allows for dual channels or if you acquire a second cable/sattelite box from your provider it is not possible to record 1 channel and view annother

so this problem can be circumvented with other products, but the expense may be more than you expected, as most cable / sattelite provders will charge to provide a second box. also you will also have to be aware of interfeerance with remotes if 2 sat boxes are used. as the remotes are likly to be similar.

I have a Philips DVD Rcorder How can I record a programme but watch another one at the same time. Has Freeview installed.


When you have programmed the DVD to record a channel, you can only watch another channel from your TV's channels, or a second freeview box.

The DVD recorder can only be set to one channel at a time, even though it has separate analogue & digital tuners.

Hello! My Philips DVDR5350H/05 randomley records for 6 hours. The only way to stop this, once the recording has started, is to go into the system menu and select the option to remove the time shift...


Hello. This is not a fault. The DVDR5350H's Hard Drive (called Time Shift Buffer) begins recording (for up to six hours) as soon as the unit it switched on and only clears the 'temporary' recordings when it is switched off or you switch to 'Cam' mode on the remote control.

Like Sky+ and Freeview+, the continuous recoding enables you to save, pause and rewind live TV (this could also apply to Freeview or any source that you may have connected to the EXT1 and EXT2 SCART sockets. In other words, if you are watching TV or anything connected to the 5350 while it is switched on you can keep it without even having pressed record in the first place (pressing OK on the remote control will show you how).

It is normal for all HDD recorders with a 'pause live TV' function to record whether asked to or not.
