Question about Philips HDRW720 DVD Recorder

1 Answer

Guideplus problem The information in the guideplus disappears and the guide screen has "no listing" on all channels. I have gone through the setup procedure several times but this problem still occurs. Sometimes a few channels have info and the rest say "no listing". And then one day, all channels will have all the info but it doesn't last more than a couple of days and then the info disappears again. Is this a fixable problem, is it the DVR, or is it the cable company.

    I also get a message on my guide plus screen that indicates it is an unlawful block of free over-the-air data from time warner cable.

How do I record a show using my DVR and i-Guide?

There are multiple ways to do this:
  1. Press the RECORD button on your remote control while watching a program to begin recording. An overlay will appear on your screen to let you know you have started recording.
  2. From the TV listings grid, highlight the show you want to record and press the Record button.
  3. From any program information screen, highlight the Record icon and press the OK/Select button on your remote to schedule a recording. Follow the on-screen prompts for additional recording options.
Manually schedule a recording for a specific time or channel:
  1. Press the MENU button on your remote control then select the DVR icon.
  2. Or, if available, press the My DVR button on your remote control.
  3. Select the start time, end time and day that you want to record.
  4. Press Confirm.
  5. In the channel list that appears, select the channel to record from.
  6. Select Record to confirm your settings or select Recording Options for additional options.

Sometimes this can fix the problem.

Regarding the firmware, I do not think there is any firmware update available for download for this unit.

I did not find any download for your product.
Often, the image disk is distributed only to qualified repairers.

I can't get the recorder to keep my guide.


There might be a TV Guide issue located in your area, since the transition to digital, TV Guide have been updating there broadcast frequency which is know been done by CBS. Have unit reset by holding down channel up and down button for 15 second on the unit itself until 12 flashes on display, then power on unit and setup TV Guide, then have unit off for 24 hours especially between 11pm to 6am for listing. If issue still exist contact Panasonic to have issue send to TV Guide.

I have upgraded my comcast service to an extended version including more channels but no cable box. I've been unable to set up my TIVO dual Series device to get the new channels, it only recognizes the...


Try this first...Press the TiVo button at the top center of the Remote, then > Messages & Settings > Restart or Reset System > Repeat Guided Setup and then follow the onscreen instructions from there.

This should load your new channel lineup into your TiVo.

If all the channels are still not recognized... Press the TiVo button at the top center of the remote, then > Messages & Settings > Settings > Channels > Channel List and then make sure all of the channels you receive are checked.

Panasonic DVD Recorder recently not updating on screen TV Guide system


I have two Panasonic DMR-EH50s and one DMR-E85H. I also have a Sony DHG-HDD250 which also uses TVGOS, but it is a HD recorder (that means full DIGITAL capabilities, including the TVGOS ) My TVGOS went out in the middle of April. I messed around on the support sites for about two weeks and found little real info.

The bottom line: I live in Madison, WI & have Charter Cable. None of my DVRs were receiving the TVGOS. Charter was not processing and/or transmitting the TVGOS properly (doesn't really matter the DVRs couldn't receive them), so I called them up, got to their "Level 3 Technical Support" and explained to them that I could not receive the TVGOS digitally or analog (converted digital) on any of my DVRs. They called me back a week later and told me to try it again....

So, all you need to do (if your local Cable Company is sending it properly):

WARNING - All SCHEDULED programs that you have previously scheduled by using the TVGOS will be deleted (NOTE: not the programs that are already recorded on your hard drive, they will NOT be deleted)

Turn the unit off.

Press the up channel & down channel (on the box, not on your remote control) at the same time & hold them for at least 10 seconds. This will reset the entire TVGOS system back to the default settings that were present when you first plugged in your DVR. This erases all previous info that your DVR had about what station it used to get the signal from and forces it to scan all the channels looking for the new channel. This is the only way to force this to occur.

When you turn on the unit, it will run you through the setup like it did when you plugged it in for the first time. Enter your zip code, etc. and when you are done, turn it off & leave it off overnight.

If your TVGOS has the Station Grid but no listings, be patient, TVGO updates its own firmware on your DVR automatically, and that may be all that happens the first night. It should start updating the listings the following night.

If it found the station grid, this is a great sign!!!! This means that your cable company is working on it!!!! It took my local Cable Company about 7 or 8 days to get it working properly, but now my 3 Panasonics and my HD Sony are all receiving full listings!!!!

If you are still getting nothing, complain to your LOCAL Cable Company. It is up to them to ensure that the signal is converted to analog & sent out over cable.

Getting regular channels to come in on VCR/DVD unit after channels scanned


Try pressing the input button on the top row and go over to the right icon for the tuner input, to make sure it has not gotton switched to one of the other inputs, front or back.
You might try completely unpluggin the power for
30seconds or so to get the deck's computer to reset;
If this doesn't help call the service number and get the
THOMPSON number to make sure it is not a defect in the
unit. SOunds like folks are sending alot of these back to the
manufacturer? Mine was tollerable for its glitches until my soon to be 2yr old's favorite tape is now stuck in it !!!!!!! We have only played about 6or 7 tapes in the thing in 3months?

Recorder is not showing tv listings


I spoke with Toshiba tech support today (800-631-3811). They have an advanced services team that focuses on TV Guide On Screen. Learned the following:

- The TV Guide On Screen signal is updated 4x / day and is broadcast by your service provider
- The broadcast channel varies depending on what the service provider chooses (though typically a major network or PBS station)
- TV Guide On Screen has been doing some reprogramming and updates recently and this has resulted in many sporadic outages

If you ARE not receiving your listings, it's one of two things - either your DVR or the signal from the cable company.

- If you are having issues, call Toshiba and let them know, they will walk through some basic troubleshooting to narrow down if the problem is the DVR or the TV Guide On Screen signal.
- If the issue is the TV Guide On Screen signal, they will be able to report the issue to TV Guide On Screen and let them know their is an issue.

After that - it's in someone else's hands!
