Most DVD products have a small hole near the tray on the device itself. Take a paper clip and bend it so you can put one end in this hole. Push the paper clip straight into this hole gently.... the tray should slide open.

SOURCE: Humax Tivo will not record to DVD

After the update to 1.15 I had to delete EVERY recording on the unit. After that, any new recordings would burn just fine. However, some have found that same failure even after a hard reboot (repower). Called Humax level-1 support and they suggested a replacement unit so I swapped it out. But I've since learned that TiVo "pushes" a DVD firmware patch (possible supplied by Humax) from 1.08 to 1.15 and that patch is the culprit. That patch is suppose to make the DVD burn at a higher spin rate. After talking with level-2 Humax support they heard of the problem and said "the unit is working as designed", meaning, the DVD drive manufacturer specs say the drive is capable of a faster burn rate. So now I have Humax DTR800 #2 and so-far-so-good, but TiVo hasn't pushed the patch onto the box yet!

SOURCE: Humax Tivo Stuck on the welcome screen

I just had the same problem with mine and found another post that at least fixed mine.

I had a DVD in the unit as it was restarting. I took a flathead screwdriver and opened up the DVD slot by inserting at the top right corner and opening the door. On the inside, at the bottom right, is a button that ejects the DVD player (the eject button on the outside won't work while it's booting up). I ejected the DVD that was in it, unplugged the unit for 30 seconds, and then it rebooted just fine.

Hope it works out for you too...

My roxio creator 2010 converts tivo to dvd so slow - a 103 minute movie took 7 hours to convert and burn to disc and the picture is **** but the audio is fine. i also can't seem to trim any tivo recordings...


I like burning tivo to DVD with windows DVD maker. I use Pavtube for coverting TiVo videos . It works very well and I haven't really had any problems. Conversion speed seems fine and the videos look good. I saw Pavtube mentioned in the TiVo forums as a good way to convert for the iPad so I decided to try it. It's much better than TiVo's converter. http://www.pavtube.com/guide/copy-tivo-to-dvd.html

DVD stuck/jammed in tray


there may be two screws on the top of the tray that holds the rounded magnet, the one that is placed to hold the disc when spinning, remove it, you can then simply take the disc out.
