Weekly timer recording not working

Hi there, 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. Kate

Have you tried setting the clock to manual mode: Page 18 in the manual I think.

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

Set vcr to record after timer is set


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.

I hope this helps.

How do I find the vcr plus coned to enter into my recorder?


Go to the TV Guide web site:

http://www.tvguide.com

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.

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

hope this helps
