Question about Televison & Video

Open Question

Iwant to record TV programs using a clock rather than the EPG as most shows start later than the advertised time so I miss the ending, very frustrating. Can I do this, if so, how?

SOURCE: Short Recording Time

TiVO also plans for other upcoming shows in total recording time. So if you 12 hours recorded, and another 20 or so hours scheduled in upcoming all as don't delete, then it won't allow additonal shows manually

The EPG is the electronic program guide trying to download TV listings.

This is normal for this player. To disable this, you would need to turn off the TV guide function.

SOURCE: tv listings clock at wrong time and recording the wrong show

Check the time zone setting in the STB. If after the power cut the STB settings got scrambled they could have defaulted to the wronge timezone. This would make the program guide times wrong.

SOURCE: just installed new tvonics250 freeview + box

Hi,

I have one of these boxes and one of the things which has caught me out a couple of times is that the remote can control three devices. To turn the Z250 on and off you may need to press the DTR button at the top of the remote first. When you press the on/off button on the remote the DTR button should light up red to let you know the signal is being sent to the Z250.

You are probably aware of this but just in case you weren't

SOURCE: Every program scheduled to record starts and ends

BigBillO,

One of the options for the DVR recordings is starting and ending before the program starts and ends. You can change this setting to your preference. To change , press the DVR button 2 times on your DISH remote. This will bring up the "My Recordings" screen on your TV. Go to "Schedule" button on the right side of the screen. Press select. You should be on the "Daily Schedule" screen. Go to "Timers" button on the right of the screen. Press select. You are now on the "Timers List" screen. Select one of the programs scheduled to be recorded and press "Select". You are now on the "Timer Schedule" screen. Go to "Options" button and press select. You are now on the "Timer Options" screen. This is the screen you can set your preference for the "start early" and "stop late" settings. Be sure to select the "Set as System Default" if you want to apply this setting to all your recordings. I hope this helps.

Random programs are showing up on the recorder I didn't ask for, or rather I didn't record the programs, they just appear on the list.


It is hard to tell at this distance what the recorder is doing, but one possibility is this: When you set the recorder for a program which actually starts later or earlier than the advertised time, it is sometimes possible for the recorder to pick up and use the title from the program that came before or after the one you want.

So the recording is still the one you want, but it shows the wrong title in the list.

Record a programme a day ahead?


What make and model are you using? Do you have the user's manual? Most DVRs have an electronic program Guide where you find the program on the day you want and you simply select it for recording. The little iView 3600STB II I have for over-the-air TV recording can only list one station at a time and at most only about 12 hours ahead of time. So when I want to record something on the next day I can't do it unless I do within that 12 hour time frame. (NOTE: The instructions in the user's manual says that the box EPG will show one week's worth of programming, and as I've just said I've never seen it list more than 12 hours worth of programming and most times less than that.)

How do I access a programme that I have recorded via epg using the original remote control. How do I set the time on my tv.


You don't mention the make and model of the TV, so it's not possible to give a specific answer.

The EPG is normally detailing the TV guide. I wouldn't expect to find my recorded programs listed in the EPG. There'll be a different way of accessing timer recordings. Check your user manual. Same for setting the time. It will be listed in the user manual.

Flashing red cassete light mean


So.... Who uses a VCR any more. They are ancient history.
They don't last forever so perhaps it's time to think ahead....

The modern way to Record video is to use a Hard Disk Drive Recorder rather than a VCR. They have a built in tuner and can record 2 stations at once and have a built in Electronic Program Guide. The EPG info is transmitted with the Digital TV transmission from the broadcaster.
I bought one 2 weeks ago for an old 85yo friend so he could record late night stuff and play back later. He still uses the VCR but only for old VHS Tape playback. I got him a TEAC HDR9650TS Digital Video Recorder and I picked it up new for Aus$188.

Main Features:
DVB-T Twin Digital Turners
DVR Recording: Record three channels while watching a 4th from same network Smart Series Record feature to record a whole series at a touch of a button
2.5" Sata Hard disk: 500GB
Time Shift Function (Pause live TV)
HDMI Digital Output
Digital Audio Output
CVBS/YPbPr/SPDIF connectors
Supports TV formats 4:3 and 16:9
Electronic Program Guide (EPG) up to 7 days in advance
EPG searching and auto download
Recorded program edit
Parental Control
Copy files from internal HDD to external HDD
Built-in WiFi
Network Playback
USB 2.0 Interface

Cheers
Good Luck
Maybe you can get a little more life out of that VCR still

I guess you mean a Set Top Box to convert digital TV transmission to old analog TV. Choose the correct video format for your screen.
Ah... Perhaps Your recording at an old standard & passing it to a modern TV or HD TV with the digital output from 1080 HD to 720 or lower still.
OR
Get a Digital Hard Drive recorder.....

Problems on epg information on some channels but not others


Is the episode guide from OTA channels or a set-top box (Tivo, cable)? Make sure that the time is set correctly. In my area, the automatic time information comes from the OTA PBS station. That station's time often is off by a few minutes. (Similarly, when the time is set manually, the clock also drifts on one of my TVs.)

If you get your information from a set top box, try rebooting (or unplugging for a minute) the unit. This sometimes will reset the data.

If those two suggestions don't help, the problem is from the stations/EPG provider. Sometimes the provider's clock is off and this causes the issue. You could try contacting that provider if their clock or program list is routinely off. (If this is related to an event that took longer than scheduled, there isn't much to stop the issue.)

I hope this helps.

Cindy Wells
(Last weekend, my cable box had the correct time. The EPG insisted on showing the programs for 5-6 hours later. Since the provider is a local cooperative, we had to wait until Monday for the support staff to reset the EPG at their computers. Rebooting the set-top box was tried, but didn't help.)

Recordings cut off earlr


First of all is this a problem with a laptop? Probably not, which program are you using? Are you recording a show on TV? This is a very vague question, if you could call it a question.

EPG on recorder very very slow


You need to upgrade the firmware on the recorder as this was the problem with my recorder. You may have to use the firmware for SH875M.
