Humax Tivo will not record to DVD

When I try to record a program from Tivo to the DVD, it begins to record but at the end always has the message "Saving Failed".  The only message is "internal error".  I have tried several different brands of DVD-R's.  It was recording fine previously.  The DVD is built into the Humax Tivo unit.  Thank you.

Cannot record externally from Humax bt you View box onto Toshiba RDXV60KB ( HDD & DVD modes). As I previously could? I am getting message E26 " Cannot record from this program". But the Tos

This error e26 gets thrown up on some digital rights management programs.this really just means you are not allowed to record...ever increasingly thanks to the big corps like sony drm carrier signals are put into some broadcasts to overcome copying infringements.there still is a way to do this with the right equipment.some tv channels get revenue from their advert counts so they put these signals in to ensure that you can only watch at broadcast or catchup on certain devices.what I can't figure out is I can record anything whilst it's being aired and still transfer to older equipment but not anything with latest ios and certainly not with sony recorders.

I can't record digital tv on the dvd recorder coupled with a new philips tv with built in digital

You need a freeview box to connect to the scart INPUT of the DVD recorder. The Freeview box has to have a programmable timer built in. Connect your aerial to the freeview box, the aerial output then goes into the TV. You program the DVD to the times you want to record each program, but always the input is the SCart. You the program the Freeview box to change to the right program at the beginning of the program you want to record.

I have upgraded my comcast service to an extended version including more channels but no cable box. I've been unable to set up my TIVO dual Series device to get the new channels, it only recognizes the...

Try this first...Press the TiVo button at the top center of the Remote, then > Messages & Settings > Restart or Reset System > Repeat Guided Setup and then follow the onscreen instructions from there.

This should load your new channel lineup into your TiVo.

If all the channels are still not recognized... Press the TiVo button at the top center of the remote, then > Messages & Settings > Settings > Channels > Channel List and then make sure all of the channels you receive are checked.

Greetings dexter11,

It appears that there is a gap in the recent technologies. It appears most of the VCR/DVD-R combo's you can purchase will not allow you to "timer record". There are a few from a few manufactures that do allow this but they are the more expensive units with integrated digital tuners.

Now I know you said you were not interested in TIVO because of the lack of a home phone line, but if you have an internet connection it will allow you to use your wireless network to receive programing updates as well.

Happy Recording.
Go Ahead. Use Us.

Are you talking about recording from the list? You might have to set the recorder to record chanel 3. I can't check it because my dvd recorder is broken. I haven't done it in a while, I remember going to list and telling tivo to record to vcr and recording chanel 3, but you can't watch tv till it's finished.If you are talking about a connection try an a/b switch. All I can say is experiment

I have a JVC DR-MH50 DVD/HD recorder and it will only record on DVD-R or DVD-RW not DVD+R or +RW. so check your format of disk you are trying to record on it may be as simple as that.
