I recently purchased the Toshiba DR570KU DVD recorder. I live and purchased this machine on a small Caribbean Island,and with respect to local people they have no technical knowledge of what they are...


Hi -

I'll try to explain without confusing you any further, but if anything doesn't make sense, please let me know. The instructions on page 79 are contradictory, which doesn't help very much. The upper part of the page suggests you can create extra space on a DVD+RW disc by deleting titles, while the lower part, in the grey box, states you cannot. The bottom part is actually correct.

I'll split this into two sections - blank/unused and used discs then explore a few scenarios.

Blank/unused discs

A DVD+RW is typically 4.7GB and will record approx. 2 hours of video in SP mode or 4 hours inLP mode. If you record more than one programme, they will appear consecutively in the disc editing menu, and shown as numbered blocks in the Title List. The last block shown will always be 'EMPTY', but the actual size of this block can be all or none of the total capacity of the disc.

If you insert a blank DVD+RW disc into the machine and view the title list, you will see this:

Although you can't 'record' to a block labelled EMPTY, this doesn't mean you cannot record to this disc. The blank space on the disc precedes the block labelled as 'EMPTY'.

If you then record one programme of 1 hour duration in SP mode. the title list will look like this:


belectric_222.jpg



Once again, although you can't 'record' to the block labelled EMPTY, this doesn't mean this disc is full or that you cannot record anything else on it. The next programme recorder will appear between title 1 and the 'empty' block - as long as there is sufficient space on the disc remaining to record the programme.

If you then record a second programme of 1 hour duration in SP mode. the title list will look like this:


belectric_223.jpg



This disc is now full as 2 hours of video has been recorded in SP mode. However, if you'd only recorded 1 hour in total for these 2 programmes, you would still be able to record another hour of video in SP to this disc. The additional programmes would appear between the last numbered title and the 'empty' block - until the disc is full.

The empty block is always present and you cannot 'get rid of it', but it doesn't mean the disc is full or cannot be recorded on.

Hopefully, this goes some way to explaining it, but I still need need to explain what happens with used / full discs when you want to delete programmes and re-record.

There is a maximum length for messages posted on FixYa and I may be getting close to this, so rather than break off in mid-flow, I will continue the explanation for used discs in another message below this one. I will do this right now, but it will probably take me 20 minutes or so to write part 2, so keep checking back. It will be less confusing if you hold any questions until I've written part 2, but I will be happy to answer any after that.

Regards,
BElectric

I have an HDD rerecorder that now sjips and freezes


HD takes more info and if you don't have a fast enough processor to handle this, that might be the problem.
The age of the recorder would tell you that. If it's 3 years old that might be it. Also how can the recorder record the HD signal unless it has the right tuner??

Stop Substitles on a LG RHT497H 160G dvd recorder?


I have the LG DVD recorder DRT389H which has the same problem. You can't switch off the subtitles during timer recording from the Electronic Programme Guide. The only way I could stop this was to go to the main set-up menu then select the A icon. Select DTV Subtitle and choose a language that the TV programme isn't broadcast in. I chose Gaelic. The only disadvantage is that this stops any subtitles being recorded so you can't access them later.

What is the default code for unlocking a programme I have recorded?


hi, the default password/code stated in the user manual for my philips DVDR3460H is "3308".. try using that to unlock your recording - although, - it does state in manual that code needs to be change to own personal code before can lock and unlock programmes (buts its let you lock - so should also let you unlock) anyway to change the password - using the setup menu - browse down to change password and first input 3308 and then your own choice (sorry to state the obvious - but some people might need to hear the obvious - no offence intended)...

well hope that resolves the issue and the program was worth the wait..
Good Luck

Hi. I have this machine and it will only fast transfer if the original hdd recording has NOT been edited (i.e part deleted/divided/combined). This is also in the manual p51/52.

Hope this helps.

Adam.

You may have CDs stored in the Jukebox taking up space- if so delete them.

You may have images stored in the photoviewer - again, delete...

Have you done any disc backups, and forgot to delete the backup file? Goto bottom of copy menu for disc backup, then in the disc backup menu, choose delete backup file.
