    Are you kidding me? If it was that easy, I wouldn't have asked and paid for help. When I press "Record", I get a message that says r00t on my machine. What does that mean? I went into the Wizard and tried to select a source to record from, but every source: TV channel, AV, etc. gives me the "no signal" response. Do I need to do anything with the initial menu set-up? If so, work me through it. Thank you for a prompt response.

Hello there, when you say you can't get it to select a signal, does it show the signal on the screen? Do you have your direc tv running through the box? This is a pretty difficult problem to describe all the possible scenarios for via posts... You need to make sure you have output from the directv box going to the input on the dvd recorder. Select that as your source, put in a blank dvd, and it should be as simple as hitting record while that input source is playing something.

r00t usually is indicating that you are on the root of the disc, otherwise not certain what it would be referring to. If it does not record to DVD and you have the input comeing from your directv box, and that input selected as the source, then there is something wrong with the unit.

Thanks

Hi there,

Step 1. Set the recording timer on your DVD recorder to record the chosen program when it comes on, or wait for the show to start and do the recording manually. Place a blank, recordable disc in the tray of your DVD recorder and close the tray.
Step 2. Make notes of where you'd like to insert chapter stops, being ready to skip over commercials and edit them from the program. It helps to have a general idea in advance where to insert chapter breaks. For an hour-long program, chapter breaks every 10 to 15 minutes are convenient when reviewing the program later.
Step 3. Press the "Record" button on the DVD recorder to commence burning the program to DVD. Use the Pause and Edit controls of the DVD recorder to eliminate commercials and create chapter stops on the DVD for easy browsing later. Place the recorded disc in a protective sleeve or case and label it for easy identification later.

Good Luck!!

Thanks

See if changing recording speed would help. As far as I know the discs should work. Try the discs that you have burned before on another player just to check if there is something wrong with the player.

Lost remote


Searching online I found a web site that you may order a replacement remote, however this web site no longer carries the T650-DR remote but they do carry a substitute.

http://remotes.com/remotes/servlet/rs?a=gmi&uuid=A12145901412461&smodel=T650DR&brand_pn=TRUTECH_T650DR

if the link does not work, go to http://remotes.com and in the top left search for T650-DR to find the replacement. Hope this helps, post back.

HELP


Hi,
There should be no problem with copying home recorded VHS tapes to DVD via the Scart or Video (yellow) output. It may be obvious but have you tried recording directly from other sources such as TV etc. Apologies if this is a trivial suggestion!

Cheers
