There are two things are likely that can cause this: media and copyright protection. If you use DVD-RW or DVD-RAM, you should be able to copy shows ONE time onto the DVD. If you use DVD+RW, or DVD+R, it may issue a copy protection message just before it stops recording.
If the media is bad, it can also cause the machine to stop recording, I believe. You could put it into a PC and try erasing the contents before re-trying to use it in the DVD recorder.

Panasonic DVD recorder dmr-ez485v displays "cannot record" on TV screen and shows code C744 on the unit...is it broken? Was recording fine yesterday...will appreciate any advice


Depending on your location, some pay TV programs may not be recordable. First make sure you are recording a free program. If problem remains, disconnect the unit from the power (wall) outlet for a minute. Digital recorders are quirky - sometimes I have had to insert a disk 3 to 5 times before it is recognized by the recorder.

Try to scan the DVD data into your PC using the trial version of TMPGEnc v4.0 Xpress if this can't find structure data then the recorder must have set the leadin data to show blank.

I cannot program the vcr to record i just do not know how to I can play tapes or wath the disk but cannot recore


make sure the tv is on channel 3, and the vcr also on channel 3 -if trying to record from cable or satalite. then make sure tape is rewound all the way. do a test by hitting record on vcr. let it record for a few minutes. rewind it, then just hit play. Dont change any channels until you are ready to record the program of choice. After this test. And recording is successful. Rewind the tape again. And change the channel to your choice. Hit record at time of or go into menu of your vcr and set up a time to record shows.

Recording problem


My solution is a simple one. I set the Record Time via "TIMER REC." on your remote for 10 minutes BEFORE and AFTER my desired program time.

Now it's a simple matter to EDIT to the program content I want.

Hope this helps you!

If you're lucky, just turn your recorder off by unplugging for a few minutes with the disc out, turn it on and insert disc and it might read otherwise your computer dvd-rom/burner might be able to read it with the proper ripping software.

Recording to dvd from sky + box


It sounds like you are catching the Macrovisiin copy protection on certain shows. I've personally never experienced this with my Panasonic unit while trying to record from television.

It is a bit weird. Have you checked their website to see if you can upgrade the firmware (internal programming) of the player?

Philips DVDR3450H Recorder does not record all of timed programs


When setting the record timer make sure that PDC / VPS is switched OFF.

PDC - Programme Delivery Control / VPS - Video Programming System is designed to allow for late starting or running programmes. Not all channels support PDC/VPS, so the recorder may be waiting for a PDC/VPS signal which isn't there.
