I had the same problem, and it was driving me nutz. For some reason, I had to take the recorder out of Progressive Scan mode, even though I have and HDTV. Turn off the DVDR, then hold down the D Dubbing button on the front and turn it on. Continue holding down the D Dub button for at least 15 seconds. That should re-set it. refer to page 66 of the manual in the Helpful Hints box.

Remote code for the tv


One amoung this will be your TVs' code.

Three digit remote codes for Philips Magnavox are:-

002/ 009/ 109/ 118/ 209/ 309/ 402/ 408/ 502/ 508/ 510/ 807/ 914/ 917/ 020/ 422/ 919/ 922/ 183/ 184/ 208/ 213

Four digit remote code for Philips Magnavox are:-

0062 0204 0207 0183 0226 0288 0062 0004 0009 0456 0183 0226 0288 0008 0068 0075 0141

NB: Switch OFF and then switch ON your tv with its front panel power switch [NOT BY THE REMOTE CONTROL HANSET]; each time before trying an other code.


Direct Code Entry
  1. Press and hold the SETUP button until the red indicator stays on, then release the SETUP button.
  2. Press and release the desired Mode button (TV, VCR, etc.). The red indicator blinks, then stays lit.
  3. Enter the 4 digit code from the code tables. Note: after a valid code entry, the red indicator turns off. For an invalid code, the red indicator flashes.
  4. With your device on, press CHANNEL UP. If the device responds, no further programming is required. Note: If some buttons do not operate your device, try one of the other codes for your brand.
Code Search If after trying "Direct Code Entry" your device does not respond, or if your brand is not listed, try doing a search of the code library for your code by following these steps.
  1. Manually turn on the device (TV, VCR, etc.) to be controlled.
  2. Press and hold the SETUP button until the red indicator stays on, then release the SETUP button.
  3. Press and release the desired Mode button (TV, VCR, etc.). The red indicator blinks once, then stays on.
  4. Press the CHANNEL UP button repeatedly (up to 300 times) until the device to be controlled changes channel. The red indicator blinks, then stays lit.
  5. Press and release MUTE to install the code. The indicator light goes off.
Most users will want to store VCR codes under the VCR button, Cable codes under CBL, etc. If you want to store a VCR code under CBL, etc., first follow the procedure for Direct Code Entry and press CBL in step 2 of Direct Code Entry, then enter ANY VCR code in step 3 of Direct Code Entry. Then follow the steps above for Code Search

Just hooked up my new Magnavox DV220MW9 DVD Player ? VCR Recorder. I was able to set the time and a vcr timer program but now I can't switch the source. It now comes on as the DVD but neither the remote...

You need to release the timer to access the VCR. Press the Timer Set button on the remote or the Stop/Eject button on the recorder. Then press the VCR button.

Please note: the scheduled recording will not run as programmed unless you press the Timer Set on the remote again. (The timer locks the VCR until the scheduled ON time.) The DVD player is controlled separately and becomes the default unit.

I hope this helps.

Im thinking that maybe you a have a timer recording set. The whole unit wont function at all if you turn it on via power button (remote or unit). There should be a button at the top of the remote called 'timer set' pressing this will disable that mode and allow complete use of everything. but make sure u press timer set again when powering down, otherwise simply turning off the machine will leave the timer recording disabled.
