SOURCE: failure to record on -R DVDs

DVD-Rs do work with the RDR-VX500 ...... I had not recorded on mine for a few months after I ran out of the last batch ....... then I tried recording on the newer Sony DVD-Rs I had ...... would not record on DVD-R ..... turns out the instructions say the recorder will not work with any DVDs faster than 8x .... It looks like it's recording but it doesn't ..... then I noticed the newer DVDs were 16x ...... found an old 8x and tried it and it works fine ..... turns out the unit won't record slower on a 16x, it just won't record at all ...... get 8x and you'll be ok

SOURCE: I cant get new RDR-HXD990 DVD recorder to record to the harddrive

We sought assistance from someone in the neighbourhood and they were able to assist us with easier instructions than the long winded directions in the manual.

Sony dvd player recorder/RDR-gx257


Connect from video out (yellow) to either front or back video in and audio out R (right red) to audio in R and audio out L (left white) to audio in L. The picture quality will not be as good as the front USB or DV connections.

I cannot get the system to change the channel on my cable box during timer recording, even though it works when I test it.


I have the same problem. It works fine during setup and changes channels on my DirecTV receiver but does not change channels when programmed for a timed recording. I talked to a Sony Service Representative and they said to return it to Walmart and get another one, but I suspect I would encounter the same problem. I think their is a major design problem with the RDR-GX257. I would be curious to see if others are having the same problem.

Have you finalised the dvd disc in the machine ? you must finalise all dvds before playing them in other machines.
