Question about Pioneer DVR-RT300 DVD Recorder/VCR

Open Question

Actually it is a DVR-RT502 - I need the recording code for remote recording

I have a StarChoice Satellite system, which allows me to set a program for recording. When the time comes, it sends a IR signal to the recording unit, identical to pressing the record button on the remote. When the program ends, it stops it in similar fashion. My starchoice satellite receiver allows me to cycle through numbers going from 000 - 151 to find the code, but to no avail. It worked for my other machines...

The DVD drive works harder when trying to record the info faster. As the unit ages, tracking is less precise. DVD-R copies occur at 4-16X real time. Try DVD-RW disks which copy slower (now that the price has dropped substantially), and you may find that your aging drive can still copy programs from the HD to the DVD.

This is an old complaint. I hope you got the remote. You have to connect VCR output to line-1 input on DVR, and you must also select it with the remote. I've been using it for a while, and it seems to work well. Remember to FINALIZE.  jj

How do I record a show using my DVR and i-Guide?

There are multiple ways to do this:

  2. From the TV listings grid, highlight the show you want to record and press the Record button.

Remote codes

You have this backwards. The codes are in the remote. If you are using a Cyberhome remote with your Cyberhome DVD recorder, it should work.

I have a cyberhome dvr 1200 lost the remote so i want to program a universal remote to use but have no luck with any codes

contact cyberhome to find out who actually makes the unit (e.g. western digital, scientific atlanta). then use the codes for the actual manufacturer on your universal remote. that should do the trick.

A lot of the functionality you are wanting is tied to the remote that you have misplaced. You can go to the Pioneer support site and order a new remote, though it is like $30.

As for wiring options to record, it depends on the inputs and outputs that are available on your television.
- Ideally, connect VCR to TV input "1", connect DVR output to TV input "2", and conect TV output to DVR. This will help you avoid any copy protection issues you run into, but not all TV sets have both audio and video output.
- If you don't have TV outputs, connect VCR out to DVR in, and then DVR out to TV in. This will definitely work, but you will have to have the DVR turned on to watch a VCR tape.
