Can't record from my dvr

I have always recorded shows to my DVR and then later transferred them to CD or tape. We recently moved and after hooking up everything I can no longer record from my DVR. I have tried all kinds of combinations. I have never had a problem knowing how to run cables correctly. I also have a new DRV from Direct TV R15. I am at a loss. Actually I can't view DVD's either. The television picture shows, but when I push play on the DVD, it just goes grainy.

HELP

SOURCE: Connecting my DVD Recorder to Dish Network so I can record

If it is hooked up right to record as the program is on. Then make sure the input is set correctly, the tv should show pic from ext-1 the e-55 should be on channel 3. This should solve ur problem.

Hi,

It sounds as if the actual T/V channel is out of tune.
I,d suggest powering the player On.
Then using channel 8-12 on the T/V to Scan for its frequency.
When you,ve located it to the Player.
Lock the channel, then use the DVD on Channel 8-12.

Mike @ compurepair.

p.s also check the output from DVD To T/V lead has,nt come loose.

Yea I have the same set up and did the same thing as that your trying to do and what you have to do is run both the cable box and the VCR through your TV using the inputs. As well as a PS2 running through imput 3.

Hope I helped

SOURCE: DMR-ES46V "set 1" error message

Hi, All you need to do is point the remote at your DVD player and hold both the number "1" and "enter" keys down for about 10 seconds. Evidently that re-sets the remote. It worked for me so good luck.

Pay TV in Australia will record "no problem" BUT BUT when it is a pay per view or Box Office etc it will be blocked in a similar way as Macrovisin that is recognized in the encoding of the recording device that the signal is passing through. The result point blank displayed you are not allowed to record this program or it is blocked or distorted part of the way through the recording etc...

How to export recorded video on a Pelco DX8100 DVR?


Converting Pelco exported video files
WHAT IS A DVR?
A DVR is a video recording and pl
ayback device that inco
rporates all of the essential capa
bilities of a VCR but adds significan
t advantages. Like
a VCR, video is recorded from one or more cameras and stored for later playback and retrieval; however, in a DVR, video data is
recorded and
stored on a hard disk instead of
magnetic tape.
Storing video in
this manner facilitates
instant, rand
om access to data, as opp
osed to sequential
access inherent to tape-based recording. This means no fast-forwarding or rewinding is necessary to locate the data a user want
s to view or
export. Another key advantage over tape is decreased maintenance. With no need to replace tapes, DVRs with hard disks can be le
ft unattended
for extended periods of time. Since video remains in the digital domain, data is easy to store, transport, and manipulate. Unli
ke analog video
recordings, digital data does not suffer from a loss in quality wh
en copied or moved from device to device. Because DVRs rely o
n hard disks
instead of tape, data storage is virtually unlimited. Video data
can also take advantage of comp
ression technology
to increase
the efficiency of
storage media. Modern DVRs, such as the DX8000, allow users to record, play back, and view live video simultaneously. Keeping d
ata digital
means video can be easily backed up to a variety of storage media.
It also means that alphanumeric
information, such as date, t
ime, and
transaction statistics,
can be synchronously recorded with video.

We recently connected to Direct TV...I want to transfer some old western TV Shows I recorded on my Direct TV DVR Recorder to VCR Tape. I was told by the people at Direct TV that I would need to contact you...


You can try this: Connect your DirecTv to VCR with Red/White/Yellow cables. Then the VCR to your TV with the same type of cables. Make sure the VCR is set to the video input, not the tuner. Turn your TV to the correct video input. Get the program ready on the DVR as if you were going to watch it. Press record on the VCR and then play on the DVR. At the end of the program, press stop on both. You may have a problem with the video recording properly. Some stations broadcast with copyright protection.

Can't record from Cable DVR


Here is a diagram of an option for you to hook up a cable box, to a VCR, then a TV. I took out all the other things and kept it simple. You can always hook up more later. The cable should go straight into the DVR as it is, then hook the yellow A/V cables from the DVR/cable box output to the VCR input then anther set of A/V cables from the VCR out to the AV1 on your television.

You will have to select the A/V input on the Go Video, then you should be able to see a picture. The only drawback on this option. You will have to watch what you record.

I hope this information allows you to resolve this issue. If you need further assistance, please post back with a comment to this thread.
