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

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

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.

SOURCE: I have a Pioneer 810H TiVo recorder. Comcast has

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

How do I setup pioneer dvr-810h without aphone line and no tivo


Can not unless you just want to watch tv . Without tivo service it is pretty much just a large paper weight.

Phone line is busy, but the cordless phone is hung up


If the line is busy, there's a phone off the hook somewhere or there's a bad phone jack or line cord. If this is the only phone on the line, disconnect the AC power adapter from the base and also disconnect the battery in the handset. On both units, press a couple of buttons to drain off stored charge. After a minute or so, reconnect the battery and base power, and see if the line is free. Sometimes, especially in hot weather when lots of people using air conditioners or storms can cause power line glitches, the computer in the phone gets confused. This process resets everything and may clear up the trouble.

If you don't have another phone and the trouble continues after trying the reset, see if you can borrow another phone from someone for testing. If that fixes the trouble you need a new phone.

Your phone line itself might have a problem that is causing your phone service provider to think your line is in use. There may be water in the line or some other fault outside, or some problem on your inside wiring. (A friend had a problem after she plugged in a new phone, and it turned out one of the prongs in the jack had bent and was touching the one next to it. In another case, a phone jack that had gotten wet had corroded and was shorted.)

If you have other phones on the line, disconnect them all from their jacks. Reconnect one and see if the line is free. Then you can reconnect the others, checking each time. This will let you determine which one is causing the problem.

This kind of problem can be frustrating, but it can be solved. Good luck, and thanks for using Fixya!

Only one ring with incoming calls from my Vtech and line is noisy. How do I solve this


Sounds more like a phone line problem than trouble with your phone. I suspect you have water in the line or some other problem that is causing trouble when the high ring voltage appears. Try disconnecting all phones and connect a plain old basic phone to one of your jacks. Better yet, if your house has a network interface jack on the outside, connect the phone there. Call your number and see if you still have the same trouble on the line. If so, call your phone company as the problem is in their wiring. If not, reconnect each phone in your house to see when the problem returns. Then you'll know which one is responsible.

Can't Pair With Phone


I had the same thing happen twice just recently and had to call my network and have them walk through some steps over the phone with me. They had to have me enter some numbers they gave me while talking to them and it came on. Be sure to call from a different phone than the one you are having the problem with. I also had it happen again a few weeks ago and I just removed the battery from my cell after disconnecting the bluetooth and then when I put it back together and reconnected the bluetooth it worked fine. I have had it for over a year and never had any trouble with it until this.
