Question about Pioneer DVR-810H DVD Recorder

1 Answer

I can't get my tivo to change channels. It stays on the same channel

I recently re-hooked up my tivo using my pioneer dvr-810h. I used to have a cable box and change channles through the IR hookup. However, I no longer have a cable box and simply have the cable line hooked up to my tivo, then to the back of my receiver/tv. Do I need to restart the system or go through guided set-up again to change my video usage? I'm thinking the problem is that my tivo still thinks i'm using a cable box when in fact I am not. I cannot find the correct setting on the tivo. Help. Thanks.

I believe that you are already on the right path, your tivo will still be assuming that you are running off the cable box plus you watch dancing with the stars for five minutes one time just to see Warren Sapp attempt to dance and now all of a sudden it wants to record every single piece of televison with dance in the title or discription, but I'm not bitter.

Just re-accomplish the set up and let it know that you are no longer running a cable box. Also tell it that ditching you friday night to hang with it's old high school buddies was so not cool.

Does the pioneer dvr-720H-s connect to digitial tv?


The pioneer dvr-720H-S doesn't have a digital tuner. It has a PAL and a SECAM tuner (the European version). You'll need a digital to analog converter or a cable/satellite receiver to provide a signal for the unit to record the digital channels.

The specification list for the DVR-702H-S is available here: http://www.pioneer.eu/eur/products/archive/DVR-720H-S/index.html .

I wish that I had better news for you. Note: the most common D-T-A converters have SD output.

Can irecord on my dvr 220 pioneer from my new freeview tv


Yes you can do this. You just need to make sure that the TV outputs its picture on the scart lead that you have connected to the Pioneer unit, and you need to set the Pioneer unit to record from that scart input. Once this is done, it will be able to record whatever you have on the screen. Be aware though, if you turn off the TV it stops outputting its picture to the recorder, and if you change channel, it changes what what the recorder see's too. I hope this helps you. :)

I need a owner's manual and a remote control. I purchased a Pioneer DVR-810H on Craigslist and it doesn't have a remote or owner's manual.

Are there different types of cablecards?


They're lying to you, to charge you more.
A cable card is a cable card is a cable card.  If your provider stands by their "special card" BS, switch to a new cable provider.
They're probably trying to scare you into getting their DVR instead of Tivo.  And it's not the same, ever. Tivo is far superior to any other DVR on the market, free or not.

I cannot record copy-protected tapes to DVD on my RCA DVD recorde


Here is a link to the installation guide for your Pioneer model - refer to every bit of information on p. 29 (which will refer you to some pertinent info in Ch.1): http://www.pioneerelectronics.com/pio/pe/images/portal/cit_11221/98391312Installation%20Guide%20DVR-810HS.pdf

If it will not permit you to do the recording:
You have to use a backdoor method. Inspect your TV and see if it has a yellow jack labelled video OUT or monitor OUT - many TV's do not have them. If you are one of the lucky ones that has a video OUT:
1) Connect a VCR to one of the televisions inputs.
2) Connect a red, white and yellow cable from the video and audio OUTs of your TV to either INPUT 1 or 2 on your DVD recorder
3) Make sure that your DVD recorder is set to either INPUT 1 or INPUT 2 - reading the manual for that model is driving me up the wall - I would change the channel on the DVD Recorder (not the TV) to 2 and use the channel down button until it says Input 1 or Input 2 - whichever the appropriate choice is
4) Play the VHS tape and make sure that you can see the picture on your television screen.
5) Press Record on the DVD recorder

Good luck- I would go insane trying to use that Pioneer - it is user-friendly, but not techie-friendly.

DVD stuck/jammed in tray


there may be two screws on the top of the tray that holds the rounded magnet, the one that is placed to hold the disc when spinning, remove it, you can then simply take the disc out.
