Question about Philips Magnavox MRV660 DVD Recorder

Open Question

DVD Player/Recorder DVDR5500

Purchased end March 2008. (from MAKRO) Connected to BOG-STANDARD analogue tv, IT WORKED FINE until last week, when it now just shows NO SIGNAL, even if we use remote to change channels. Same logo appears on every channel when scrolled. Have already unplugged it overnight, and also disconnected scart and antenae leads. Obviously NOT the telly, as it still works on analogue channels 1 - 5.

Re-connect DVD, and it still shows NO SIGNAL. This machine was replaced at Makro, when the former one packed up after only 3 weeks!!
Q1. Can this one be fixed to work correctly? If so, by whom?
Q2. If we up-date T.V. to a Digital LCD TV with built in Freeview, will this recorder/player still work with such set?
Q3. Do Philips market a modest priced recorder that continues to work longer than a few weeks?

My memorex combo dvd & vhs player is not working right. can you help me? the vhs player works fine, but the dvd player display's a split screen on the tv with a large yellow box with the word PSCAN....


PSCAN is a short form for Progressive Scan - a line scanning format used for High Definition TV. Standard TVs use Interlaced scanning. On your DVD/VHS player, the VHS is an analogue signal recorded in interlaced mode so is fine for a standard TV. The DVD is a digital signal and cazn be processed for progressive scan output in order to produce a better picture on a High definition TV (or a TV capable of handling progressive scan). If you cannot to your TV via the HD outputs then you should be able to set the DVD player to output interlaced instead of progressive scan.

We have a Panasonic DMR-EH55 dvd recorder, it worked just fine until March, 2009 when Shaw quit subscribing to tv guide. Has there been any resolution to this issue?


Shaw like Time Warner in many areas of the U.S. will never go back to TV guide.
Your best bet is to switch to the competition in your area.

Philips DVDR3570H HDD DVD player Recorder - done basic set up last night but the start up search for analogue channels returned 0 - speant 2 hours re arranging plugs & it still wouldn't locate them? do...


The DVDR3570H will only find analogue channels if you have a TV aerial connected to it.

If you only have a satellite or cable box, then you can still use the recorder, but you will have to use the AV inputs on the recorder. In this case you will only be able to record the satellite or cable channel you are watching.

Recording DVB on this DVD recorder?


Have sorted this problem now, I purchased a SCART DVB TV Unit from Freecom, this did not work at first connection, but I then realised that it had to work as RGB into the SCART plug on the DVD, once I set the unit to RGB, all was fine.
I can now record Freeview on my DVD fine.
I do however have one prblem which this will not overcome, that is the addition of yet another remote control !!!
Byeeeeeee..
