Philips dvdr3455h/37 recording issues

When i tag 1 or several files on the hdd to transfer to blank dvd, then go to record, the icon in bottom right corner comes up then goes away as if completed, but happens within 1minute, which is in noway accurate. Nothing has been written to the blank dvd. Philips techs say i have to send unit in. Have you seen this online?

Re: philips dvdr3455h/37 recording issues

I was having the same problem if I used DVD+R blanks, but the programs would record fine if I used Memorex DVD+RW rewritables. Until today, that is - now it won't let me burn anything from the HDD to a disk!  My 3455H is about two years old.
Gotta say I'm quite disappointed with it, and would never consider another Philips product. :(

How may i hook the phillips dvdr3455h/37 to record from my fm tuner,i have it hooked up as follows audio out on philips to tape in on amp and audio in on phillips to tape out on amp,but when i press any of...

The dvd recorder uses the video signal to detect, thus it will not detect the audio as a signal. I believe there are "boxes" you link in somehow to "fool" the dvd into thinking it's recieving a video signal, but I don't know where to get them.

Rec from hdd to disc

Only use one of the disc types that is listed in the manual that they have actually tested on unit. If the HDD recordings were made in HQ mode, then you will only be able to fit a one-hour or less recording on a DVD. You cannot reverse this at this point. For future HDD recordings, set the record mode to 4hr or higher.

I cannot write data from HDD to DVD+RW

The REC Mode of the recordings was set so high that there is not enough space on the DVD to make a recording. Cannot change at this point. For future recordings, switch to LSP or some other non-quality mode.

Problem Recording HDD to DVD-R


I had a few problems with my philips 3450 - I downloaded the latest software upgrade at , and my issues were resolved. Worth a shot...

Only other thing I can think of is you may have a faulty batch of DVD-Rs?

Best of luck!

Failure to record

I had the same problem on my Philips 3400. Changing media worked. Try RW media if R does not work.

Can't record from hdd to recordable dvd

Had the same problem on my 6month old 3440H, its the degradation of the cheap Asatech Chinese DVD drive that is the source of the problem. . My 3440H HDD to DVD transfer sequentially degraded, It stopped recording DVD+ and -R's then on RW's it sometimes performed and some not.I gave up using cheap DVD's then with higher quality disks  it would frequently report task completed but then would not plaback or freeze in the way you describe. I bought the DVDR from the CO-OP Xmas 2006. Co-op no longer support electricals so when it went wrong Co-op gave me a service centre to take it to. Long story short Philips dont recognise the service centre and they declared my warrany void. Tried to re-engage with Philips but they basically were not interested in supporting their product..  
Not an elegant fix but since Phillips were useless,  I opened the box nothing lose ..I now run it on a bare external Sony DVD drive using extended ribbon and power cables as its a bit tricky to find space in the box to mount the drive.

Downloading from hdd to dvd+r ?

When you recorded your "footage" was the dvd recorder set to 2hr (sp), 2.5hr (spp), or 3hr (LP), etc.?Because for example, you downloaded (recorded to your hdd)your "footage" that is say 3hrs long, and your recorder is set to record at 2hrs mode(sp), then when you put a blank dvd in recorder to transfer from hdd to blank dvd, the 3hrs of your "footage" has been recorded in 2hr mode on your hdd, and will only record in 2hr mode onto your blank dvd. Solution is to set your recorder to the record mode in which your "footage" length is. For example, if your "footage" length is 3hrs, set your recorder mode to LP then when you insert your blank dvd should be okay. Or, set your recorder mode to 2hr (sp) and make two recordings of your "footage" onto hdd, splitting them up: 2hr on one, and 1hr on the other.When you burn to blank dvd you will have to have 2 blank dvds, one for 2hrs, the other for 1hr. I had to same thing happen to me. I hope this works for ya.
