Question about GoVideo VR2940 DVD Recorder/VCR

1 Answer

Recording / no soud

During set up everything checks out, but as soon as I press record the sound of whatever I am recording ceases to come through. When I press stop the recorder does not respond, Even when pushing the power button [remote or unit] the unit will not disengage. The only option is to disconnect the unit from it's power source. At that time it will reset and I can record with sound, most of the time, but I tend to ruin at least one dvd for each one that I am able to record.

If there is a firmware download available you can update the firmware, that will fix the problem.

    I checked on the Internet, the firmware is not available for download.
    You need to call the GoVideo customer support phone number, that is listed on the owner manual.
    If you insist that this is a factory defect, they may even offer you a free replacement.

    Find the number on the user manual, call them and ask for a possible replacement or for a firmware update.

My LG DVB-T HDD/DVD Recorder will not play or record sound via TV Channels!


If the TV source is separate from the recorder, there has to be a physical connection between the two. From your description it seems there is a video connection, but what about audio?

I have purchased a Teac HDR2500T video recorder. I can set up to record television programme through EPG or PVR. I can see in LIST that the programme is recording, however when the programme is finshed,...


The part re the other channels having no signal....I had the same problem with mine and that was because the small loop cable in the back wasnt right. I could watch all channels, press record and still watch that channel but try to watch a diff channel while its recording and they were gone. As soon as I had the loop cable in properly it solved the problem. Hope this helps....

Is it possible to record one show, while watching another ??


You need to put a cable splitter on the cable. One side goes to the TV. The other side goes to the recorder. The output of the recorder goes to one of the alternate inputs on the TV. Set the recorder for whatever channel you want to record using its internal tuner. Use the TV tuner to watch a show live. Later, set the TV input to whatever you connected the recorder output to and watch your recording. You will probably need to do this to see the recorder menu to set up the recording.

Try getting a dvd recorder that connects to the video and audio ports and record to that. Im not 100% sure but I believe it records whatever it sees on the tv screen

Low volume on playback


The volume control on the TV does not affect the recording. However, if you were recording from a set top box, and you turned the volume down on the box and not the TV, then this would cause the problem you describe.

If this is the case, then try to keep the STB volume at maximum and only use the TV volume control.

Also, some DVD players and VCRs have a lower output than the standard TV tuner, so an increase in volume is usually needed.

You might want to try some test recordings to see what happens.

Magnovox MWR20V6 will not begin recording when it should.


This is more a work-around than a solution, as the unit is failing to function normally; however, having the identical problem I observed that the unit is failing to power on at 2:00 minutes before beginning recording, a necessary step to record to DVD.

My work-around is the following:

1) Set up the timer, inputting necessary date, time, etc. as normal. With the unit still powered on, start the timed recording mode by pressing timer set, as normal. You will see the red clock icon and the DVD logo iluminate on the VFD.

2) Press the Standby-On power button. This will power the unit on in VCR mode. You should at this time be unable to switch from VCR to DVD mode since the DVD is still in timer mode. LEAVE THE UNIT POWERED ON in this manner. The timer will function and the DVD will record normally.

I have no clue why my unit suddenly forgot how to power up on its own in order to record to DVD. If anyone has an answer for that one please post!

RECORDING


On most VCR/DVD Recorder combos there is a quick dub button that you must select the source. Ifyou are recording from a VHS than you need to make sure the button is pressed so that VCR is displayed or lighted or whatever the unit does. If its on ??? Then perhaps its telling you that it is set to record of the DVD which it obviously can't.
