SOURCE: recording

I have the same problem. I believe this unit is a lemon by Samsung. I was so exhausted I went to Hard drive erase. After I erased the HD, now it will not record or go into recode mode. I think all it good for now is just to view the monitor. When I call Samsung they dont have a clue what a DVR is. I never seen a company so illerate. They cant even tell me where I can send it for repair.

SOURCE: Samsung mini DV sc-D366 always displays eject

I believe your problem is in the drum motor assembly part No is AD97-10579A. Samsung they know that problem it require a Technician to replace this part because you must adjust electronic and sometime mechnism as well. Depend which country you are it might cover under warranty even your CAM is out of warranty just check with Samsung in your area

VCR stops recording by itself after a couple seconds.


Some VCR's will stop if the signal is not there. Retune the set if it uses Freeview. The broadcasters and those who are in charge of Transmitters like to mess around with the stations from time to time. This will effect the recording if you are using a model with the Guide Plus system. If you are timer recording it make certain that the settings are good. If it is an older model, make certain a thing called PDC is not on.

I want to record a program for later in the day. When I record on TV1 in Dual Mode, why does it record on TV2 in another room instead of TV1?


Hey there, Cheri Torres with DISH Network Customer Service here. I came across your post and wanted to see if I could help. It sounds like your DVR recordings may be interfering with another recording you already have set up. What you can do in order to fix this issue is change your Record Plus setting to TV1 instead of TV2. In order to do this you must first press the Menu button on your remote control then Select 8(Preferences) then 5(Record Plus). Once you have selected record plus you will need to enable the option as well as set your Record preference to TV1. Depending on the model of receiver you have the menu numbers may be different but the options (i.e. preferences and record plus) will be the same. I hope you find this information useful but if this does not work or you have any other questions or concerns feel free to email me at Cheri.Torres@Dishnetwork.com. Thanks and have a great day!

Hello! Daniel Busa with Dish Network here! Most likely your reciever is using our record plus feature. This sets the record default to always being on tv1 or always being on tv2. To fix this hit menu 8-5 go to disable hit select, go to done hit select delete the timer and set it up again.

What is +vr and how do I remove it


VR mode or Video Recording mode is a feature on stand-alone consumer and computer DVD recorders that allows video recording and editing on a DVD rewriteable disc.
In VR mode, users can create and rename titles for the scenes. Also, if a scene is deleted, the space allocated by it will be utilized later without the need of reformatting a disc.
If the user would like to record on the same disc again in later time, on VR mode, users may eject the disc and it will not be finalized by the recorder until it is manually initiated. For the sake of comparison, any DVD disc recorded in VR's competitor V mode (or Video mode) will be automatically finalized before it is ejected by the recorder. Disc finalization is still required if the disc formatted for VR mode will be played in another DVD player.
Currently, users can only record in VR mode with the use of DVD-RW, DVD-RAM and DVD+RW discs, (updated in 2000 to accommodate DVD-R (General)) [DVD players marked “RW compatible” and “DVD Multi” can play DVD-VR recorded discs] and on some recorders, also on hard-disk drives.
Blu-ray Disc and HD DVD also support VR mode-like features.

Accordingly when DVD recorders became a viable option the features offered by <Video Mode> were minimal - the linear structure did not allow post recording editting or non-linear playback. Thus the DVD Forum devised Video Recording (VR) mode.

Unlike DVD-Video this uses a much simplier file structure that allows non-linear modification to the recorded data. This means features such as partial erase, editting, playlists, simulataneous record/playback, mixing of different media types (JPEG, MPEG1/2/4, MP3, WMA, WMV etc) and, in future models, dual record are all possible."

That basically summerises the differences: video is a linear recording that should end up DVD-Video compatible, VR is a digital recording mode that allows HDD-like functionality on disc.

Do you need to always be able play your recorded DVD-RW discs on other DVD Players? If yes you have to use Video Mode, although some players will play VR mode discs, and you can test this easily by giving it a go.

The main differences are:

DVD Video mode on DVD-RW

Plus points: Provides good compatibility (70% plus). That’s the only plus, plain and simple.

Negative Points: Only simple linear editing possible, really just hiding a title. You can reuse space only when you delete the last title or completely reformat but lose everything in the process. No defect management. Requires finalisation to play in other DVD Players. No possibility of time-slip, i.e. recording and playing back at the same time.

DVD VR mode (Video Recording)

Plus points: Better use of recording rates by having intermediate resolutions. Defect management so reliable. Time-slip on 2 speed media if supported by the recorder, allowing record and playback at the same time. Non-linear editing. Any space freed is reused automatically (think hard-drive or Mini-Disc) and added to the remaining time.

Negative Points: Not very compatible with existing DVD Players, plain and simple.

Of course if you have a hard-drive based recorder then all the negatives are wiped out, as you use VR mode on the hard-drive which gives you all the pluses of VR mode, then record to DVD-RW in Video Mode to give you the compatibility to play the disc elsewhere.
- A recording on DVD-RAM will always use VR mode
- A recording on DVD-R will always use Video mode
- A recording on DVD-RW can be either Video or VR depending which is set before the recording is made.
- A recording to DVD+RW or DVD+R will always use Video mode
- Many HDD/DVDR combi recorders will record to the HDD in VR mode and allow you to dub (digitally) to DVD-R in Video mode.

Unable to record.


Have you initialised the disk? The manual states that for the first use a DVD-RW has to be initialised first.

Will not record disc-to-disc


The first thing to try is cleaning the lenses,sounds obvious,but i think thats why its continuing to try :initialising: if that fails the lense that reads the disc or both likely need realigning most problems that acure whith any cdplayers ect are down to the lenses.

Panasonic DMR-E55 Won't Let me Record my own VHS


Hi

This is probably caused by an irregular magnetic encoding pattern being generated by the tape itself. If the DVD recorder does not fully recognise the code, it may incorrectly interpret it as copy protected. If there is any tape flutter or there are tape edits, these can contribute to the problem. In addition to this magnetic imprinting can occur on old tapes that have been stored for a number of years without being spooled. basically wrong bits of the tape get magnetised. You can sometimes hear an echo on old tape recordings caused by imprinting.

You could try the following:

1) If available, try using a different video machine to play back and record from.

2) Whatever video machine you use, put your tape in, fully fast forward and rewind a couple of times, then try your recording again. This is particularly important if you haven't used the tape for some time.

3) If it fails again, check to see if it always fails at the same point.

4) If it does, try winding forward a little and then try to resume recording.

5) If you can record it means that a short section of tape is giving a spurious code to your dvd recorder and confusing it.

6) Use a re-recordable dvdrw to make a master. You won't keep wasting discs if the recording stops. You will also be able to produce another dvd from your master and edit it if your recording ends up in a number of segments.

7) Always use the highest quality setting possible when producing a master.

8) If all else fails, if you have a friend with another dvd recorder, maybe try that.

Have fun....
