Re: Magnavox DVD recorder #MWR10D6

Oh my god this thing is a piece-o-junk. It seemed to work just fine until about time the 90 day warranty ran out. The for some reason it started turning itself on and off without a timer program being set or anything. I did this every day at exactly 12:00 am and 12:00 pm. I should have known something was going bananas with it, but it still did everything else it was suppose to. Then it became impossible to set proper recording timer programs because the clock settings won't activate. It's like the internal clock is stuck or someting. Tried to get help from Magnavox and Wal-Mart, but like I said, it's outside the 90 day warranty now. What I suggest you do is the same as what I'm doing now. Tell as many people as you can and warn them away from this product, this company, and the scam-job they are running with this worthless piece of plastic.

Trying to connect Magnavox MWR 10D6 DVD/Recorder to Sanyo HDTV. TV is connected to Dish network through coax. cable.

Unfortunately, the Magnavox MWR10D6 recorder can not record HD signals. It's only video inputs are coax (RF) and composite video; both are limited to 480i (SD). NTSC (analog signals) are translated to video.

Your best recording option is to connect the composite video output of the Dish receiver to the video input (yellow for video, red and white for audio) of the recorder. Then set the receiver to the channel that you want to record and set the recorder to Line In.

HD recorders may exist. They are much more expensive than the SD versions.

I wish that I had better news for you. The manual for the MWR10D6 is available from Funai here: .

I Have a Magnavox MWR10D6 DVD Recorder Certain shows or movies i try to record , I get a pop-up saying " Cannot record in +VR mode " . What is +vr mode and how do I change it?

VR mode or Video Recording mode is a feature on stand-alone consumer and computer DVD recorders that allows video recording and editing on a DVD rewritable disc.
In VR mode, users can create and rename titles for the scenes. Also, if a scene is deleted, the space allocated by it will be utilized later without the need of reformatting a disc.
If the user would like to record on the same disc again at a later time, in VR mode, users may eject the disc and it will not be finalized by the recorder until it is manually initiated. For the sake of comparison, any DVD disc recorded in VR's competitor V mode (or Video mode) will be automatically finalized before it is ejected by the recorder. Disc finalization is still required if the disc formatted for VR mode will be played in another DVD player.
Currently, users can only record in VR mode with the use of DVD-RW, DVD-RAM and DVD+RW discs, (updated in 2000 to accommodate DVD-R (General)) [DVD players marked “RW compatible” and “DVD Multi” can play DVD-VR recorded discs] and on some recorders, also on hard-disk drives.

Play the video on your through your recorder if possible, then record it that way. It works for me. Just go to your watch tv setting and record it off channel three while the vcr plays the video.
