Question about Pioneer DVR-530H-S DVD Player/HDD Recorder

6 Answers

Error Message "This signals TV system is different from the recorders setting" I get this message when trying to play from my digital camera, irrespective if I use analogue or digital inputs (S video or DV cables). It will record sound only. I have had this problem before, intermittantly, but it is now permanent. I have not changed any settings. When first plugging in cable, the picture flashes on my TV before the message appears. The picture looks fine. Any help would be much appreciated Thanks David

    I have used this camera and DVD recorder together for quite some time. Generally it will play and record from camera without a problem. I am not aware of any changes to either's setup which would impact.

  • david2301 Jan 27, 2009

    Digital camera is Panasonic NV DA1

  • david2301 Jan 27, 2009

    I use a HD Plasma TV. If the TV is the source of the problem, does that mean I can play and record on my DVR if the TV is switched off and therefore not able to interfere?
    Thanks


  • david2301 Jan 27, 2009

    I have plugged my camera directly in to TV using S Cable and it plays fine. When I use S video cable through DVR, it will not play.

  • david2301 Jan 27, 2009

    Why wouldn't the analogue signal outputs from the camera work if the TV is set to analogue (They don't work)

  • david2301 Jan 28, 2009

    Which of the TV's many settings could be set to analogue? Why does the TV play direct from the camera if the TV setting is the problem
    Thanks


  • david2301 Jan 28, 2009

    I have no problems playing the camera direct through the TV, but it will not play through the Pioneer DVR. What particular setting in the DVR is likely to be incorrect, given above error message.
    Thanks

  • david2301 Jan 28, 2009

    Tried every other channel on the DVR, even though I know the correct one is called "DV"

  • david2301 Jan 28, 2009

    Not a channel problem

  • david2301 Jan 29, 2009

    Found it. The DVR setting needed to show NTsomething on PAL. When I changed to that it worked. Thanks to all for your help. I have no idea how the setting got changed.
    Thanks again
    David

    Thanks to all

You need to access both TV display menu, and DVD setting menu and set both tv and DVD to same resolution (eg. 780 dp).

If DVD does not have resolution settings, then set TV only to a lower resolution settings.

    try hooking it up via rca jacks, or s-video, or hdmi. If none of these settings work for you and you have tried adjusting input settings on your system, then you inputs are fried out.

You've got your video recorder video settings set to a resolution that the DVD player or TV can not interpret.

Posted on Jan 27, 2009

  • Mark Egan Jan 28, 2009

    Do you have your owners manual? There are a number of settings between the TV DVR, and your camera that are too numerous to detail here.

    The best start is to make sure you know where all settings are to be set to.

    Then step through upgrading the settings to improve the way the system works.

    Sadly, this is not all a plug and play system. You going to have to put some effort into understanding the way the various components talk to each other.

  • Mark Egan Jan 28, 2009

    Please clarify if the message is coming from the DVR, or is coming from the TV, and what brand/model the TV is. Also confirm the exact message given.

    The owner manual for the DVR does not indicate an error message that is anywhere near the wording that you have given.

The video recorder learns a viewer's preferred programs and automatically record programs it expects a viewer to like.
A viewer also has the option to skip portions of a broadcast, such as for example commercials, You just need to change the setting in the setting menu.

I have the same problem with the same model LG, bought a year ago. It only gives the 'Record-blocking signals detected' message when there's something I really want to record. Over the winter it was Jane Austin's Pride and Prejudice. Today it is the British Open Golf from Turnberry. We are out tomorrow, for the last day of play and can't record!!!!! It seems this player has build in blocking signals even to channels we can normally watch. Any help would be appreciated - before tomorrow, July 19th.

Emerson EWR 20V5


Jan 17, 2009
I posted this Jan 3, 2009 and seem to have a solution.
Similar problem. E4 54037380 Can not record on this disc. Even though it is from the same package of DVD-Rs that I have successfully recorded to previously. Contacted them about 9 months ago without a successful resolution so I am trying again. Unit will play any DVDs, will record and play back DVD-RWs but will not record on my imation DVD-Rs 8X discs that worked fine in the past. Starts to record for a few seconds and then the error message appears (sometimes with slightly different final 4 digits of error number). Other postings have suggested: maybe a firmware update is available (I requested and we will see Emerson's response), trying slower speed discs (I am skeptical since these 8x imation discs in this same package previously worked, and the instructions say 1-16x for DVD-Rs), unplugging the unit for 1/2 hour to reset the unit (did not work), playing the last disc recorded to the end and then trying a new disc (now it recorded for about 30 seconds rather than 10 seconds but then got E4 54043E02 error message, different but still did not work). So I am hoping for something more productive out of Emerson this time.
Update Jan 17,2009. Bought a CD and DVD cleaner disc with the little brushes on it. Cleaned the EWR20V5 per the cleaner instructions and tried to recod on the imation DVD-R 8X that I had used successfully in the past, no luck, same error message. So I bought another brand, maxell DVD-R 4.7GB up to 16X and IT WORKED. The instructions on pg 25 say for DVD-R "up to 16X" may be used but "4X-8X disc is recommended". Go figure, no idea why the 16X worked but they did in this case. So just a suggestion to try other brands. Someone else had suggested that also so I gave it a shot. $8 of new discs and $13 for the cleaner and I've back in business.

Panasonic DMR-ES30v Combo- Message of "Check disc for error"


Pay TV in Australia will record "no problem" BUT BUT when it is a pay per view or Box Office etc it will be blocked in a similar way as Macrovisin that is recognized in the encoding of the recording device that the signal is passing through. The result point blank displayed you are not allowed to record this program or it is blocked or distorted part of the way through the recording etc...

Interface error! Trun off the power


Okay...sounds like you have a lot of signal splitting as well as devices that may also weaken your signal. With digital cable, you won't see snow or what would be a dead give-away to a weak signal. Only analog signals do that. Digital signals give you crisp clear picture or they drop out.

Try taking the cable directly from the wall to the DVD-Recorder. If you are able to watch channels and manipulate the device, then you can start from there as the source is good and the recorder is good.

Try to place the DVD-Recorder after the first splitter and see if you still receive stable signal. You'll probably need to leave the unit in this part of your A/V chain.

It really sounds like you need a signal amplifier for all the splitting you've done, or to re-work your A/V stack into something more manageable. It is entirely possible that the built-in tuner of the new DVD-Recorder is not as sensitive as the old unit.
