Question about Samsung SIR-S4040R DirecTV DTV Receiver / 35-Hours Video Recorder

1 Answer

Short Recording Time

Even though my TIVO is advertised as a 35-hour recording time, it seems that I can only get 10-12 one hour programs recorded and it either starts deleting shows or if I "save until I delete", it won't let me record any other shows. I realize that the more action in the show, the less recording time I have, but I think it should be more than 10-12 hours.

TiVO also plans for other upcoming shows in total recording time. So if you 12 hours recorded, and another 20 or so hours scheduled in upcoming all as don't delete, then it won't allow additonal shows manually

Hi Margret -

(1) You must have available space on the recorder. If it is full, you will need to delete enough programs to provide the room needed for the new recording.
(2) You also need to be subscribing to an entertainment program package that includes the channel that the show appears on.
(3) Depending on the service (Tivo, Directv, Dish, CableTV, etc.) there may be other requirements. The quickest response to get this resolved for you will be contacting the service provider (Tivo, Directv, Dish, CableTV, etc.)

Good luck!

Why does the channel up or down sometimes not work?


It sounds to me like you have a fault in the tuner circuit. I suggest you take it on for service.

Sorry to bother you sirs, but it seems that you know much about DVD Camcord playback problem. I have a question about my camcord video output format may i ask.

After that conversion process the .VRO file can be played again, but I do not know why the output has no audio output, no sound. Do you ever met such a kind of problem? VLC can play .VOB very well because I have checked. It should be similar to .VOB, but why VRO cannot be recognized by VLC Media Player, it doesn't make any sense. Is there any free and simple method to directly run .VRO file on my PC without using any third-party video conver

Olympus Voice Recorder says only 6 hours time when it's empty


Hello
The recorder should be formatted only by using the internal FORMAT function found in the Menu. Formatting using the computer may corrupt system files needed to run the recorder and may delete the Voice Guide Data and Audible system files, so computer formatting is not recommended. When the recorder is connected to a computer, individual files can be deleted using My Computer without negative effects.after you format the unit this is how needs t
be depends on your selection for Audio quality
STEREO XQ mode: 17 hours 30 minutes
STEREO HQ mode: 35 hours 10 minutes
HQ mode: 70 hours 20 minutes
SP mode: 138 hours 30 minutes

Can a tivo series 2 be modded to use as a dvr without subscribing


No. But, i belive the series 2 will allow you to "create a mnual recording" .... so, if you know the time and channel your proigram is on, it will record. Keep in mind that you won't know what program is what since you haven't downloaeded the program titles....

I can't figure out how to record two shows at once on my DRT400 Humax Series 2 Tivo.


You can't. The unit doesn't have dual tuners, so your stuck with just recording one show at a time. Sorry.

Need a little help


Greetings dexter11,

It appears that there is a gap in the recent technologies. It appears most of the VCR/DVD-R combo's you can purchase will not allow you to "timer record". There are a few from a few manufactures that do allow this but they are the more expensive units with integrated digital tuners.

Now I know you said you were not interested in TIVO because of the lack of a home phone line, but if you have an internet connection it will allow you to use your wireless network to receive programing updates as well.

Happy Recording.

Tivo and direct tv


No, unfortunately there is not. That tivo only has 1 tuner, so you can only record or watch 1 live program. You can however watch a pre-recorded program while recording a live program. If you have directv, you can step up and get their hr20 dvr. It's not a tivo by any means, but it has 2 tuners so you can record 2 things at once and watch a pre-recorded show. It takes a little while to get used to the interface, but once you get the hang of it, it's pretty straightforward.

You can also get an older DVR w/ tivo (hr10) however, it will not get ANY of the new MPEG4 High Def channels that are out there.

If you have an hdtv, then you really should grab an hr20, give directv customer retention a call and ask what they can do for you. You'll need a new slimline dish and they'll come out install it and everything you need for watching off the new satellites and enjoying the new mpeg4 hd channels (the old hd channels are in mpeg2).

Good luck.

Humax Tivo will not record to DVD


After the update to 1.15 I had to delete EVERY recording on the unit. After that, any new recordings would burn just fine. However, some have found that same failure even after a hard reboot (repower). Called Humax level-1 support and they suggested a replacement unit so I swapped it out. But I've since learned that TiVo "pushes" a DVD firmware patch (possible supplied by Humax) from 1.08 to 1.15 and that patch is the culprit. That patch is suppose to make the DVD burn at a higher spin rate. After talking with level-2 Humax support they heard of the problem and said "the unit is working as designed", meaning, the DVD drive manufacturer specs say the drive is capable of a faster burn rate. So now I have Humax DTR800 #2 and so-far-so-good, but TiVo hasn't pushed the patch onto the box yet!
