Question about Philips Magnavox MWR20V6 DVD Recorder/VCR
I follow the manual instructions to the letter and even got a DVD that will burn (Sony DVD-R). When I hit the Dub Start after placing the VHS on Pause, all I get recorded is the TV Feed going into the unit.

Most commercial tapes have anti-copying feature imbedded in the signal. Often this is a kind of "burp" in the horizontal synch signal. I don't know if they are still available but a few years ago my boss obtained a "horizontal stabilization" box that did the trick for most tapes. We actually used it for legitimate image stabilization when using tapes with older video projectors. It cost (about 7 years ago) around $40.00 and was purchased at a little electronics parts store.

Please thank Stu for scanning this. I have uploaded the manual to my personal web page. Just click the link and the word document will download. (why is it so hard to record with this thing? Shouldn't there just be one button? Broksonic has taken years off my life, but not anymore)

SOURCE: VHS to DVD Dubbing Problem
I have the same problem. I saw a solution that said I needed to set my cable to a non-premium channel like NBC, ABC, PBS, CSPAN in order to allow the dubbing to occur without the +VR problem. At first, I thought it was a stupid solution; but guess what, It worked. I just set my cable box to from HBO to CSPAN,restarted the dubbing from VCR to DVD and it worked. Now the question is: Why do I have to change the channel when I'm dubbing from VCR to DVD?
This worked for me..still trying to figure out why it worked???

Depending on the procedure you may be pressing the record button instead of the D.Dubbing or Dubbing button. When recording from VHS to DVD you must first, load the blank DVD and VHS home movies, then play the VHS movies, then PAUSE the VHS movie when you want to START recording... then the only the you have to do is pressing the D.Dubbing button or the Dubbing button. If your VHS tapes starts to play after the Dubbing button is pressed you have been successful in Dubbing.
