Question about Televison & Video

5 Answers

Here is what I want to do, then perhaps you can suggest a solution. I have Virgin plus tv hard drive recorder. I am a crafter and I record craft programs. I want to be able to copy the programs onto a portable dvd player so I can take the player into my craft room and play it. It seems that there is no such thing as a dvd recorder/player. Can you suggest the best way for me to do as I want at a reasonable cost. I dont want to be dragging a full recorder into my craft room and to buy a tv for in there. Hope you understand what I mean

Sounds like what you are needing is a video capture card for a computer, capture the video through the card and then burn it to DVD drive in the computer. then you can play them in your portable dvd player.

You can only remove the internal HD and mount on computer, or streamthe files out.

    The internal hard disk in your unit cannot be directly connected to an external computer to view the files in it.
    It has been set in this way to not facilitate copyright infringment , it is the same for all HDD boxes and DVD.

    The fastest way to copy the files is removing the internal hard drive and connecting it to a PC desktop.

    Other possible ways are burning DVDs and copying them on hard drive, or streaming out the videos connecting a computer, but both ways will take ages if you have many hours recording.

Can you record from a smart tv with arecording box


First of all you need to check if your TV supports recording. Some 2010 models do and most 2011 have it implemented. Look for stickers or logos such as:
  • USB Recording
  • PVR (Personal Video Recorder)
  • DVR (Digital Video Recorder

  • The following manufacturers support it in some of their models. Typically mid-end to high-end models. Check the manufacturer web site if you are unsure.
  • Samsung
  • Sony
  • LG
  • Philips
  • Panasonic
  • Toshiba
  • Sharp (only Time Shift pausing)
  • Grundig

    What you need

    Many consumers have USB recording enabled TVs without actually using the function - simply because it requires an extra USB hard drive ou need the following:
    1. USB Recording: A HDTV that supports recording.
    2. A USB HDD: FlatpanelsHD uses a USB HDD from Transcend.
    3. Digital channels: Recording is only enabled on digital channels - not analog. You can record SD, HD and 3D.
    Some manufacturers recommend USB hard drives with external power supplies but we have used a Trandscend USB HDD that takes power from the USB plug on all manufacturers' TVs without any problems. Manufacturers typically allow 1:1 recording, meaning that you will see no loss in picture quality.

    How to set up USB Recording

    Once you have purchased a USB hard drive and connected it on the back of the TV you can move on to "pairing" the USB HDD with the TV. Here is how to set up USB recording.

  • Connect the USB HDD to a free USB port on the back of the TV.
  • The USB hard drive now needs to be formatted (all data will be deleted).
  • Most TVs help you to format the USB HDD automatically but on some models you need to enter the menu and select format HDD (or something similar)

    Bought a tvonics freeview dtr-hv250 digital tv recorder, keeps coming up but it wont allow me to record. keeps saying the hard drive is unformatted. done what it says on the on screen instructions but


    Go to your on screen menu under dtr settings and format the hard drive. If you have been recording the hard drive may be full and some programs need to be deleted to allow more recording space. You may also unplug the unit for several minutes and use the reset box option.

    Hi I am vortash , Just a suggestion but why not just buy a USB video capture device off Ebay and turn an old lap top into a PVR then you can fit an external Hard drive and record for however long the hard drive is capable of ?.

    Dvr not recording


    It sounds as if your going to need to replace the receiver as the hard drive has an error on it. I assume you can record live TV. There are also few 510's in the Dish Network service area throughout the country so my suggestion is to have Dish send the receiver to your home as opposed to creating a work order for a technician to come to your home as it will be hard to ensure you get the 510 back.If you decide to upgrade to a HD receiver try to get a model that does not have the internal hard drive but also has the expansion port on it. There is a one time fee to activate this port of 39.99. This amount will be recovered in the first year by using an external hard drive eliminating the 5.99 DVR fee every month. This option also allows you to have better control of your recordings and makes them portable. They also will not be lost by replacing the receiver. If you are a real big tv fan check out the sling box offers. Thanks for using Fix Ya.

    Connecting a dvd 250gb hard drive recorder to tv and virgin box


    Right then, on the back of the virgin box there are 2 scart outlets, connect one scart from the TV scart port to the scart in on the DVD recorder, then connect one scart lead from the scart out on the DVD recorder to the TV.
    Find the DVD recorder source channel on the TV and then use the DVD remote control to find the digital input on the DVD recorder, this is usually AUX channel.
    Post back if you need any more help

    Recovery of content on DVR-625 hard drive


    usually hard drive failure boils down to files not opening succesfully, or a random internal failure, not a physical issue with the hard drive, however because dish network repairs these issues on a large scale the fix is to wipe the software and start over which means all recordings are lost, unfortunately recovering these recordings is basically impossible... if you often record things which are imperative to your business i would suggest getting a 622/722 dvr which will allow you to download these recordings to an external hard drive via usb, you will have unlimited use uploading and downloading programs for a one time fee of about 40$

    DirectTV Dvr Playback of Recording skipping and locking up reciever forcing Resetof reciever.


    Have either of your tried unhooking the HDMI connector if you are using it and try component?

    What software are you running on the unit. The HR20-700 and HR20-100 just got a software update that was going to fix this problem w/ the unplayable recordings.

    stephnt:
    If it is erasing your content that is a good sign of a defective hard drive. These units when they boot up (after a software update) check the hard drive. If they run into a problem (bad sector) they will foolishly erase the hard drive, thus erasing everything you have recorded. If this is your 4th unit, you may want to look at your environment as well (well ventilated, good connections, etc) I'm not saying it couldn't be the unit. It took directv 14 units to get 3 working, and since I've had 2 HR20-700 refurbs that were unstable and were quickly replaced.

    It might be in your best interest to invest in an external drive solution for the HR20. I, however, would be calling customer retention and having a calm, but stern chat with them about this.
