Your box has most likely lost communication with your providers server. most boxes these days download the program guide over the internet. so if you still have your channels (come from a cable)but have no guide info its probably because your box has lost the internet.

good luck

Record a programme a day ahead?


What make and model are you using? Do you have the user's manual? Most DVRs have an electronic program Guide where you find the program on the day you want and you simply select it for recording. The little iView 3600STB II I have for over-the-air TV recording can only list one station at a time and at most only about 12 hours ahead of time. So when I want to record something on the next day I can't do it unless I do within that 12 hour time frame. (NOTE: The instructions in the user's manual says that the box EPG will show one week's worth of programming, and as I've just said I've never seen it list more than 12 hours worth of programming and most times less than that.)

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:


belectric_221.jpg



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

DVD recorder


Sounds like a hardware issue. Given that the device is 2 years old, I would suggest buying a new one. Dvd recorders are not too expensive these days and you might save yourself a lot of headache by doing that. You might also try TIVO or some other form of dvr service, or set your computer up as a dvr if you know how.
