Hi I am vortash sounds to me as if you are not switching to the correct source for your recording .. make sure that the DVD is in the the record mode and the source is from tape and not aux or tuner and make sure that the VCR is in the correct playback mode to DVD and finaly the Tape you are trying to record is not carrying an elctronic watermark to prevent recording ... Hope this helps regards vortash

Zenith XBR716 DVD Recorder / VCR Combo parental bypass


I don't know if this will work but try entering four 0 (zeros) first. If it doesn't work enter as many 0 (zeros) that you can and see if that works. Hope this helps :)

Zenith XBR716 every time i tried to record a dvd in the unit saids copy right protected


Hey! Usually, DVD-Video has protections such as Content Scrambling System (CSS) and region codes. These protections are designed to prevent the DVD user making backup DVDs. If you want to copy DVDs, you need to remove DVD protections first. Usually, DVD Copy Software can be of help which can backup dvds by removing DVD protection. I recommend you use this DVD Copy software. Hope that helps.

My Zenith XBR716 won't finalize a dvd that it has recorded.


Wrote in by "Guest" on 01/04/2008..."The document for the XBR716 needs to be re-written and re-issued, because it is missing information on how to finalize the DVD."

Solution:
Press the HOME button, then go to Disc Manager.
Select the Finalize menu, Finalize and OK to start.

VHS to DVD dubbing questions


The disc needs to be finalised by the DVD recorder. (A process which includes writing data to the start of the disc listing what is on the disc, so when you put it into another device it can see whats on it).
You CANNOT finalise RW discs.
You need to use DVD R discs, they are so cheap these days, i pay about £7 for 50 RiDiscs (16x).
If you then need something to rip it to your PC, DVD shrink is free and good.

ALL cable is digital.
What type of TV do you have? Does it have any scart conections on it? If not connect the Cable box with a scart lead to your VCR select the AV channel on your VCR, connect your VCR to your TV via the RF connection, (if it has not got one, its not a TV, its a monitor). Tune your TV in to the video channel.
You do not need an RF modulator for a home TV setup, whoever told you that is a fool.

RECORDING


On most VCR/DVD Recorder combos there is a quick dub button that you must select the source. Ifyou are recording from a VHS than you need to make sure the button is pressed so that VCR is displayed or lighted or whatever the unit does. If its on ??? Then perhaps its telling you that it is set to record of the DVD which it obviously can't.
