Question about Pioneer DVR-810H DVD Recorder

Open Question

Trouble with connecting my Pioneer to the phone line.

I recently got my Pioneer 810H fixed after a few years of not using it. I tryed to reconnect it in a new location through a phone line. When I originally hooked it up, the sound wasnt working on any of the TiVo settings (not the old programs left on the harddrive, not the movie DVD settings, and not even the sounds of movement in the TiVo main menu).

I thought if I ran the Guided Setup then it might help. I have a basic Comcast tripple pack and was going to run the TiVo service through the phone line but its not working. I connected the line through a phone jack and not through my router becasue its too far from the TiVo. I've tried all sorts of different combinations of the settings of the options. Unfortunatly the only thing that I can do with the tivo is going through the Guided Setup again and again.

Any help or throughts as to what the problem might be?

    The Pioneer DVR810H I bought used from an ad in craigslist is showing similar symptoms:



    cannot connect to Tivo service. It first says preparing for a few minutes, then it goes into Dialing, then it shows NEGOTIATING in the Connecting Menu and just get stuck there for a long time and ultimately

    says unable to connect.



    so I am not sure what it means by Negotiating:



    1. Is the modem on the unit bad?



    2. Is the hard drive in the unit defective?



    any help will be appreciated.



    thanks

    I have similar problem.



    the Pioneer DVR810H unit when plugged in goes immediately into

    guided setup .



    1. it goes into connecting cycle and first says Dialing, and then in this menu says NEGOTIATING and gets stuck here and finally ends up with

    unable to connect after a long time.l



    what is it negotiating? Is this doing some handshaking with TIVO and failing as :



    1. the hard disc is bad

    2. the Pioneer unit modem is bad?



    or is there is some other problem any one knows off?



    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.

Search for a Tivo Series 2 IR cable on eBay. Any series 2 cable will work with the Pioneer.

Warning: Laser inside! If you want to open it up and troubleshoot, make sure you don't point toward your eyes.
Check the nylon laser carriage to see if it slides laser from center to outside line. If it sticks, it's probably shutting down from not properly reading a disk.

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.

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.

Pioneer DVD Player DV-360 stopped working


try pressing the next >> button whilt switching on the unit from the stand by button, keep pressing and see if it changes from NTSC to PAL. This is applied so to see if the CPU is faulty or not, to try wake him up and search other internal routines. Patrick
