I have the Zenith XBV443. I'm trying to copy saved programs from my dvr on my tv to dvd discs. My neighbor has a simular model yet we can't find out why I'm unable to do the same. What do you think is the...

Hi there,

The Zenith player/recorder will be able to record to DVD from an external input such as a PVR. The most likely reasons you are unable to record successfully are:

1. The TV / DVR is not connected to the Zenith recorder correctly. You need a separate cable for recording. You cannot record using the cable that is connected for playback of DVD discs.
2. The TV / DVR does not have "VIDEO OUT" sockets
3. You have not selected the correct external input on the Zenith recorder

If you can let me know the brand and model number of your TV / DVR and how it is connected to the Zenith DVD recorder, I can let you know why it isn't working, how to make it work, and even draw you a setup diagram, if required. It's very difficult to give you the correct answer without these details.

You Zenith DVD recorder will record from the DVR - the real question is, can the DVR send video to the Zenith DVD recorder . . . ?

Zenith XBR716 every time i tried to record a dvd in the unit saids copy right protected

Hey! Usually, DVD-Video has protections such as Content Scrambling System (CSS) and region codes. These protections are designed to prevent the DVD user making backup DVDs. If you want to copy DVDs, you need to remove DVD protections first. Usually, DVD Copy Software can be of help which can backup dvds by removing DVD protection. I recommend you use this DVD Copy software. Hope that helps.

Recorded dvd's won't play in another dvr

The problem is not the dvds themselfs it is the other play that you are trying to play them in (some players do not play DVD- and DVD+ or any other of self recorded disks) Look on the players box to see all what types of disks it can play!

Zenith XBR411 DVD Recorder/VCR Combo Problem

I have the XBR616 zenith combo.
If your dead set on initializing your dvds, I can try to
do one in my dvd player to see if it works, then send it back to you. I can't guarantee anything, my player is a bit fussy, but I don't mind helping you.

If so, let me know

DVD will not finalize

Bad Disk batch is the most common problem if it is occuring with the same batch of dvds. Other problems could include that you need to get a firmware upgrade for higher speed discs. If you are using a disc that burns faster than the current speed of the machine you need to download the upgrade (follow the directions that are given in most dvd blank packs) and insert the CD that you downlaoded the program onto into the DVD player/recorder.

Vhs to dvd burning

You cannot burn a DVD on the XBV243. It is NOT a DVD recorder. You CAN record onto a VHS tape from a DVD (copy-protected commercial DVDs cannot be recorded)
