To set the recording quality, go to the Recording Quality screen:

  • Software version 3.0 - 3.2: From TiVo Central, select Messages & Setup; then My Preferences; and then Video Recording Quality.
  • Software version 7.2 and later: From TiVo Central, select Messages & Settings; then Settings; then Recording; and then Recording Quality.

Change the recording mode from high quality to low quality from the setting. Or you can record the vedio at high quality and later convert it to low quality by using vedio converting software, that way you will have both the low quality and high quality ones.

I have nikon D90 SLR. with 18-135mm lens , i want to record a video with it but a videos quality is really low .. should I change a setting or something else?


Press the menu button and go to the shooting menu (the little camera icon). Scroll down to "movie settings." there are three quality settings. Select the one you want then try a test shot. The higher quality setting (1280 X 720 pixels) uses more memory. The default setting is 640 x 424 pixels and the lowest quality setting which uses the least amount of memory is 320 x 216 pixels. Sound is off by default so if you want to record sound with your video, you need to turn the microphone on in this menu as well.

126 tape only recording 30 min is there a speed setting for recording


Hello - YES the length of time depends more on quality of recording.
The lower the quality the longer the time - or - Better the quality then shorter the time.
Try going into Video settings and try either extreme.
My camera does 10m Pixel video in BEST and 3m Pixels in Normal - so there's a factor of 3 for time.

Why does my camera stop recording after one hour? i need to record 90 minutes


Your camera records in two modes: SP and LP modes. SP is a higher quality mode that runs for about 60 minutes, while LP records for 90.
To change to LP mode, open the menu and select [VCR setup]. Select [REC MODE], set it to [LP] and close the menu.
Keep in mind that your video and audio will be of noticeably lower quality with this setting applied.

The output is in black and white-no color. Is there some button I need to push or is it another problem? Thanks!!!


I don't know if this will help you, but one time I went on vaca & changed the recording quality to the lowest quality ( i can't remember now what it was called... I think the choices were best, better & good. I can't find out for you b/c presently I am in need of a power supply to power up my unit ) so I could record more hours & everything I recorded that way played back black & white with a greenish tint. I know you can change the recording quality in the settings. I'm not sure this is what you are talking about but I hope it helps.

When I take a video with the A710is and load it onto my computer it plays in a small part of the screen. When I try to go full screen it becomes extremely blurred. Do I need to change my camera setting or...


Your camera has a variety of resolution settings for video. The better the video quality, the more memory it will use. Make sure you have adequate memory for high quality recording. The 16 or 32 mb cards these things come with, will not record more than a couple of seconds using the high quality settings (hence, the manufacturer, by default, uses lower resolution settings). So, first, buy a 1 - 2 gb card. Then, go into your video settings and select what you want.

Can not record dvd movie that is more than 103 minutes in length?


The solution is the quality settings on the DVD settings. On a 4.7Gb disk, 279 minutes at 24% quality, down to 70 minutes at best quality. Also, more will fit on the 8.5Gb DL disks. You can also use automatic quality, that will fit the video that you have compiled onto a disk, using the highest quality setting that will allow it to fit. An alternate method is to 'burn' to an image file on the HD, then use a program like 'DVDShrink' to fit on the disk.

How do I set my camera to get higher resolution photos?


Hey there kbbate, if you use REC Mode you can choose the Recorded Pixels, and the Quality Level. 6m is the best available setting for the recorded pixels, and the quality level is default set to best, however you should check to ensure it's settings. Note: you cannot select Recorded pixels if the Quality level is set to Raw. Also Raw (3000x2008raw,3000x2000jpeg) would techniquely be the best setting for your purpose. You will just have to do the tweaking on the computer, rather than have the camera sort it out for you. Good Luck!

you have to finalize the disc first.once it is finalized you can not record any more material on it,so make sure you record everything you want on a disc. you can maximize disc space by changing speeds on the dvd recorder. for example: if you have 5 hrs of stuff on a tape, set the dvd recorder for 6 hrs or more recording time.the quality should be ok [depends on how good of quality you want] if you set the speed for 2 hrs, your quality would be better, but obviously everything won't fit.
hope this helps
