Question about JVC DR-MV7S DVD Recorder/VCR

Open Question

Length of Recording Time on DVD

When doing a timer-set recording to DVD, the unit does not record for the full length of time it has been set for, i.e., I set it to record on channel 3 from 8:00-11:00pm. It may record only 26 minutes, or it may record 118 minutes, or 52 minutes. Doesn't seem to have any rhyme or reason as to how long it records. However, if I have the unit set to record to VHS tape, it works fine -- for the proper length of time. What is wrong?

SOURCE: RECORDING PROBLEM

Connectivity problem. Without knowing your models and their available channels etc., it's very difficult to advise you exactly.
Broadly though ...... you need to get the input signal routing sorted.
Plug your aerial into the Freeview box. Make a connection from its RF out, (beside the aerial 'in' socket) to the aerial 'in' socket on the JVC. Run yet another co-axial connection from the JVC RF 'out' to the television.
Now - connect a scart lead between the JVC and the TV. Power off the freeview. Switch your TV to accept A/V - to show the JVC on screen. Read/go through the 'Set up' procedure on the JVC to scan in the available broadcast channels. When done - connect using a scart between the Freeview box and the JVC. This will be located on either the L1 or L2 channel selection.
IF as it seems you are using the freeview to watch all your programmes - and record in then you are simply watching and recording 'live' change the Freeview programme and the JVC gets that same one arriving in (and sending to the TV)
Unless you need to record Freeview only output - always record from the aerial input. You select via the television remote (and 'TV' selected) and the appropriate channel.
Complex to explain - hope it helps. The one thing to remember - is to make one set of changes at a time - check the result is okay, before moving to the next.

You need to go into the set up menu and select recording options. On the recording options menu, scroll down to dubbing options. On the dubbing options menu select either VCR to DVD or DVD to VCR.
Recording and Dubbing are not the exactly the same thing. You use the record buttons to record TV directly to VCR/DVD you use the dubbing buttons and set up to record DVD to VCR or VCR to DVD.
Hope this helps.

This unit doesn't have a tuner of any sort. Even on the few DVR/DVD recorders that have tuners, the external composite video inputs do not connect to the tuner. To record from the L1 or L2 inputs, you must be using a set-top box (cable, satellite, or digital-to-analog converter for OTA signals) or another video source (video camera or a vcr). Most TVs do not have video output capabilities. If you have one of those, follow the directions for recording from set-top boxes below.

Turn on and set the source to the channel that you wish to record for any set-top box. Then make sure that the set-top box is left on and at the correct channel after you finish setting the frequency, speed and length of time for the recording. Note: if the set-top box is turned off, your recorder will still record the blank video and audio.
What source do you have connected to the VCR?

To record from a video camera or a VCR, set that source to play back at the desired time point. This is best done without the timer. Just start recording and then the playback.

I hope this helps. Please add a comment with your video source for more support.

(My OTA tuner has a energy-saver option that turns off the unit when there is no activity for a while. Since I usually record when I'm either asleep or away from home, I had to disable the feature to get the correct recordings.)

Tried to record on a DVD-R disc, but unit said that the disc was full. I then tried to finalize the disc, but the unit got stuck in the finalization process. I unplugged/replugged the unit to make it...


The most likely reason the unit got 'stuck during finalisation' is probably because there was insufficent space left on the disc for it to write the respective lead-out/menu data (or perhaps there was a bad disc sector) - disc full? Because you unplugged the unit from power point before it had finished, the disc is possibly corrupted now. Throw that disc out.

The manual clearly warns: Do not disconnect the AC power supply cord while finalising. This
can render the disc unusable.

In other words, you have lost that particular recording and you are wasting your time with that disc.

There is nothing in the manual to suggest the length of time required for DVD-R recovery - there is a recovery process for the whole unit (such as after a power cut while recording a timer program for example) but not for discs. I may be wrong here...

However, the upshot is you have lost a disc, not a recorder. Another drink coaster for your living room.

Video recording length


Yes, you can record till the memory card gets full. You can get more recording time if you set the motion picture to the lowest quality ie QVGA 10fps.

Total recording time window won't work


I had this same issue when trying to record direct to DVD with 2.5, and could not solve it. Then, I finally ran through the wizard, and it indicated the maximum length for each level of video quality (DVD HQ, DVD LP, DVD SP, etc) - something to the effect of "At this quality, your device can record XXX minutes of video".

Once I set it to a quality level that exceeded the length I needed, I was able to proceed without any problem.

I have a Dazzle DVD Recorder but don't know what to put in the "recording time" field. I want to record a full 120 minute VHS tape but won't let me enter 120.


It is becuase the dazzle device is not selected as your video source. Please try to go back to step number 1 then click the box says pinnacle file capture then select the dazzle then try it again. :-)

Zenith XBR617 DVD Sometimes doesn't record full time scheduled


sounds like your clock is wackie. SEE if there is a back up [computer type button] battery in a small draw just by the clock or see your manual for directions on where it is. Replace the battery.Do you have interupted electircity in your [brown outs] area ? That shuts down the recording timer and resets it. Your clock is the 1st thing I would check, 2nd is the electricity.

Timing


Follow the basic recording instructions from p.32 of your user manual, and add this step:
Press RECORD (z) repeatedly to select the
recording time length. Recording starts after the
first press.
DVD: Each subsequent press increases the
recording time by 10 minutes.
