Question about Polaroid DRM-2001G DVD Recorder/HDD Recorder

2 Answers

ATT UVERSE-CONNECTION HELP! HELP!! HELP!!!

I HAVE HAD THE DRM-2001G DVD HDD FOR WELL OVER A YEAR.  RECEIVED INPUT FROM DISH NETWORK HD RECEIVER AND SENT OUTPUT TO MY HDTV READY TV. EVERYTHING WORKED FINE.

ION OCT 4TH I HAD AT&T U-VERSE TV SERVICE INSTALLED.  THIS IS A FIBER OPTIC SIGNAL THAT COME INTO THE HOUSE VIA THE TELEPHONE SERVICE.  IT PROVIDES BOTH INTERNET AND TV SERVICE.  THE SIGNAL COMES INTO THE HOUSE AND IS CONNECTED TO A GATEWAY.  THE GATEWAY PROVIDES INTERNET VIA  A ETHERNET/WIRELESS CONNECTION.  IT ALSO PROVIDES TV SIGNAL TO A U-VERSE TV RECEIVER VIP1200.  THE VIP1200 RECEIVES TV SIGNAL ONLY AND DOES NOT HAVE DVR FEATURES OR HD.  THIS RECIEIVER IS LOCATED IN MY DEN AS IS THE GATEWAY.  THE GATEWAY THEN OUTPUTS TV SIGNALS VIA COAXIAL TO A SPLITTER IN THE ATTIC WHICH SENDS OFF TWO COAXIAL CONNECTIONS. ONE OF THESE IS TO AN IDENTICALVIP1200 WHICH IS LOCATED IN MY BEDROOM AND THE OTHER GOES TO A VIP1216 RECEIVER THAT IS CONNECTED TO MY HDTV READY TV IN THE LIVING ROOM.  THE VIP1216 IS A HD RECEIVER AS WELL AS A DVR WITH HD.

NOW I HAVE MERELY REMOVED THE DISH HD RECEIVER AND  ADDED THE VIP1216.  THE VIP1216 IS CONNECTED TO THE DRM-2001G VIA  IT'S COMPOSITE OUT  AND THE DRM-2001G IS CONNECTED TO THE TV VIA IT'S COMPOSIT OUT.  WHEN THE DRM-2001G IS OFF THE SIGNAL GOES TO THE TV WITHOUT ANY PROBLEMS, BUT WHEN THE DRM-2001G IS ON AND SET TO THE YUV INPUT SOURCE THE PICTURE CHANGES TO A SERIES OF RED, GREEN AND BLUE DISTORTED RIBBONS.  I FEEL THAT THE CONNECTIONS ARE CORRECT AS I RECEIVE A PICTURE ON THE TV. THERE MUST BE A SETTING WITHIN THE DRM-2001G TO CLEARE UP THE SIGNAL OUT WHEN ITS ON.  I HAVE GONE THRU THE USER'S MANUAL SEVERAL TIMES RECHECKING THE SETTINGS AND CANNOT FIGURE OUT HOW TO CLEAR UP THE SIGNAL. WITHOUT THE DRM-2001G IN LINE I HAVE NO WAY TO WRITE MY FAVORITE SHOWS TO DVD MEDIA.

CAN ANYONE HELP ME WITH THIS PROBLEM.  HOPEFULLY IT IS FIXABLE AS THE ONLY OTHER CAUSE COULD BE AN INCOMPATIBLE
PROBLEM WITH THE U-VERSE SIGNAL. I DON'T THINK THIS IS THE CASE HOWEVER BECAUSE THE SIGNAL FROM THE UVERSE RECEIVER PROVIDES FOR A CLEAR PICTURE WHEN THE DRM-2001G IS OFF.  ALSO I HAVE ONE OF THE VIP1200 RECEIVERS HOOKED UP TO ANOTHER DVR IN MY DEN AND IT RECORDS FINE.

THANK YOU FOR TAKING THE TIME TO READ THIS AND I LOOK FORWARD TO YOUR SUGGESTIONS.

PS: PLEASE PARDON THE U/C LETTERS AS I HAVE NUMBNESS IN MY LEFT HAND AND HAVE DIFFULITY WITH THE SHIFT KEY.

1. the the 1216 is a DVR and recordings get encoded sometimes you are able to get it off sometimes you are not. But you need to have a cables running to your tv from the vip1216 and cables running to your DRM-2001G. Granted when you do so, you may lose some quality becuase the picture/sound is being divided between both the tv and the DRM-2001G. That should work for you, if it does not then its just not compatiable with each other also ATT offeres a fee based service that will set it up for you becuase standard support does support that sort of thing.

My tv is set up with a HD dish network receiver. How do I set up a stand alone sony blu-ray dvd player. when i have tried i got good audio but the video was poor and very red.


Because this is HD to get the best picture possible, you'll need to connect the DVD player separately from the receiver. The easiest way to do this would be to connect an HDMI or component cable from the receiver directly to the TV. When you need to watch a DVD just cycle the inputs by pressing the input or source button on your TV.

Hi, Does this unit work with Dish Network airing in HD? Do I just connect it to the receiver and the Dish program guide will appear? Thanks


Hi julu226, I see you want to connect your Phillips DVD Recorder to theDISH Network receiver. Depending on what receiver and input you have the TV setto as well as the connections on the back of the DVR. I will send a link tohelp with the steps for setup to record the programs you want. http://www.p4c.philips.com/files/d/dvdr3506_37/dvdr3506_37_pss_aen.pdf

DRM-2001G weak remote


The range problem with the remote can be fixed by replacing the LED in the remote with a Radio Shack 276-143. The LED is a lot stronger and now the remote works a lot better.

You may also find that the 'receiver' inside the cabinet is pointed at an angle instead of directly towards the 'window'. You can trim the rubber(?) to allow it to point correctly.

Connecting an a/v receiver to a Dish network receiver


DO you have manuals for all the units listed?
If not , try the Samsung consumer site.
It would take me quite a while to figure out your situation even with manuals and I have a business to run besides.

Also, ask some questions of Tech Support at Samsung..Let them KNOW how much you spent on their stuff.

God bless,
