We are able to get the timer recording (hard drive) working on this unit if we program it to 'once only' but when trying to put in 'weekly', it does not record. It does switch itself on when it is due to record (and stays on) but does not record. We notice that in the right hand column of the programming menu we get 'rec. ok' when doing 'once only' (and it works), but when doing 'weekly' we just get 'rec.', without the 'ok'.
In our first couple of weeks owning this unit, the weekly recording function did work, but then stopped working unexpectedly. We have reset unit and gone carefully through owner's manual many times but can't find what we are doing wrong. Any help MUCH appreciated.
I have found the unit works on weekly or daily IF the unit is left in standy mode.. If not you get the message "Duplicate Date" after it attempts to record.. where the REC or RECOK message is displayed.. It is a "B" nuisance

The “Timer” Indicator lights up on DECK.
• You can do Timer Recording with the power on or off.
• “TIMER REC WILL START SOON” appears on-screen for 2 minutes
before Timer Recording starts. If DECK is in DVD mode, no message
appears, but the VCR REC Indicator, the VCR mode indicator and
“REC” will flash on Multi function Display.
You need to turn off the Timer and then add your new program to the schedule. Then turn the Timer back on (power off). On most VCRs, the Timer is enabled by turning off the unit. Thus turning it on will work (as long as a program isn't currently being recorded). If a program is currently being recorded, press Stop to interrupt the programmed recording. Then add your new program - that doesn't conflict with other programmed recording or exceed the number of available timed recordings for the unit. Then turn off the unit.
At least one VCR I owned was a bit trickier. You had to press the Timer button on the remote instead of the power button.
Hi my name is Mike Houston of DISH Network and I see afterunplugging your receiver to do a hard reset the receiver would not record oraccess recorded programs. When you try to record or access the recordings isthere a three digit code that appears on the top right? If you will pleasee-mail me at ichael.houston@dishnetworkwith that number I can better assist you.
You have to choose your location by zip code and if you have cable, satellite, etc. Then you can choose the day of the week and the time and find your show. When you move the mouse over the show a window will pop up a synopsis, click in the middle of the pop up and it will open another page with info about the show. Scroll down a little and on the left hand side it shows VCR+ and Tivo info. I have not used this feature because I don't know if it will let you set something to record say on a weekly basis. I use my unit to record some TV series which play weekly at the same bat time and same bat channel! Plus this unit has 16 timer record slots, twice as many as any VCR and the programing is much more flexible, Good Luck.
i have uploaded the user manual for this model, it should be visible within the next 24 hours. the quick version is this:
if you haven't done so yet, set the clock menu/ use up/down arrows to select "clock set", press right arrow to select, set day, year, etc using up and down arrows, when each is set, the right arrow moves you to the next bit
once clock is set
timer recording menu use up and down arrows to scroll to timer recording, and press the right arrow to select set the program number (1-8) set frequency (once, daily, weekly) set the date to record set start time (i usually go 5 mins prior) set end time (i usually go 5 mins after) set channel number set tape speed exit by pressing clear/c reset press t-set to activate the timer
the timer rec light should come on, the timer recording will not be active unless you press the t-set button
