I am unable to auto tune my Tevion DVD Recorder


If the recorder is old the analogue/digital change is screwing it up. It isn't the TV that is the problem, it is the received signals, but the problem is the same.

DMR-BS850EB My recorder will not play back avi, divx,discs, even though it says in spec it will play back divx. can you help


Download the latest firmware from panasonics website,that will update the internal software engine that is in the recorder and maybe that will allow it to play and record avi,divx,etc.Its like updating the bios that all computers have,everything is a factor right down to who made the disc and format of the disc to disc size,etc.To update the firmware you must first download the file via the internet from another pc or if you are connected to the internet via ethernet cable to the recorder then you will be able to do that thru the on screen menu from the recorder,if you download the file from another pc ,you will need to put the file on either a memory card or disc and then go to update firmware thru the on screen menu and then let it know where the firmware is (browse to it)double left click the file and then press update firmware.Hope this solves your issue,if not let me know,be glad to help you get it right,thanks and good luck.

I have retuned my PVR 6200t recorder and have lost ITV and Channel 5 and several other channels. Any advice?


The Sagem PVR 6280 is specifically listed as a model which will have problems with the retune. Although the Sagem PVR 6200 and 6200t are not specifically listed as problem models they are very closely related to the 6280/6240 models and share most of the same firmware and software.

See the address below for a chart of affected models, you'll need to contact Sagem directly on 0845 0900 316 for either an over the air update or an update DVD depending upon the manufacturer.

Sorry I can't provide you with a definite solution but it's very likely that your model is one of those which only Sagem can sort out.

Please return the favour by rating my answer.

CYBERHOME DVD RECORDER DVR1600


I cannot say this with authority, since I own a 1200 model, but from what I've read of that model researching my own it's most likely the power supply. It is repairable if you or someone you know can solder. Here's what I found:

I did pretty much the same to my 1200, replaced two 2200uF caps with 35V versions. Make sure the rated voltage of the new caps is at least 16V! Higher is better. There's also a firmware update for that model, you might want to look into that too. Of course, you can't use it until this is fixed.

Pioneer dvr433h dvd recorder


Can they be played on your computer or another DVD device? It could be a problem with the encoding of the DVD. Check with Pioneer to see if there is a firmware update that may correct this problem.

Disc error with some DVDs


If the DVD recorder is an early model, it may be having trouble understanding some of the newer copy-protection schemes that are in use.

There's not too much you can do for this kind of problem, but you can try looking on the manufacturer's website to see if there's a firmware update for the DVD recorder. It would be something you would download and burn to a CD or DVD and then load into the recorder. That would update the DVD player's software so it can work with newer discs.
