Question about Pioneer DVR-225 DVD Recorder
You also have to "finalize" a disc after you record it or it will not play. This may not be possible without the remote.
Most of what you need to do to record a DVD depends on the remote.

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.

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
