    How is it connected to the TV? Could be lose connection...

    What other electrical / elctronics or radio transmitting (e.g. WiFi router, Video sender) are located near the system? Could be interference...

This may be a problem with the TV rather than the DVD. Usually wavy lines are caused by some of the AC signal leaking into the video signal. It is possible that the DVD player power supply is the source of this as well. Check the filter capacitors in the power supply of the DVD player first.

I cannot get my DVD SH893M to timer record. I have set it up and it appears to be recording and when I go to view it, it has not recorded. I can record the programme I am watching OK. Can you please...

My take is that you probably should consider sending it back if you can. The first point in the reveiw below answers your question I think. There are several complaints there. I took the following off the Amazon website UK - apologies to the writer:

By N. Adams "Analogue Design Dude" (France) - See all my reviews This review is from: Samsung DVD-SH893 160GB HDD Recorder - Black (Electronics) This certainly the biggest disappointment I've ever had when buying a HiTech item.
Although it does (almost but not quite) all the things claimed, the user interface
is so terrible that I get annoyed every time I use it (every day !). I almost wrote
to Samsung to ask if I had a Beta version of the software, but I never did. I can now
at least try and warn others...

The stupidities are too numerous to mention, but here is a shortened list:

**When you have a timer recording set up - it will not start to record if the unit is
still switched ON (is this software from a VHS recorder?). You can record something
and watch something else as well (small mercies!) but the recording (or timer) must
be already running before you press play - or no deal.

**The Marker system is almost unuseable because you have to remember which marker number
corresponds to which recording. Just to make the game more interesting - when you
erase something that is Marked - the other Marker numbers shuffle around !

**The editing system is nightmarish, and you cannot use Markers that you placed during
previous watching. Gone are the days with my Panasonic where I would watch a film,
"Chapter" the adverts - then all the edits were done before writing to DVD. Even if
you know that a film is so many minutes long, there is no way to jump to that point
during the editing process. You have to watch the program run through ( at x64 max )
and wait.

**You cannot choose the recording speed (SP/LP etc )to HD when you are using the internal
tuner. Also you cannot record to DVD at a different speed than the HD recording !!!
This means that where I always put two films on one single layer DVD in LP, now I can't.

Well that's enough moaning - I hope it puts you off considering this horrible device.
Even though I've only had mine for about 5 months I think I'll treat myself to Christmas
present of another HDD recorder !

Onscreen angle icon cannot be disabled during layback of disc

After many long minutes of searching, I found the solution:

Depending upon your model of Pioneer player, you can switch this off in the Setup menus. Look for an entry about "Angle Indicator".

This worked for me. I had to stop the movie, go into the 'home menu' on my remote. Now I'm back to enoying Spirited Away without the annoying camera angle and blue line.

Not recording a full film

1. Insert disc.
2. Press "DVD" button on remote.
3. Press "REC MODE/REC SPEED" button.
4. Keep pressing until desired recording speed.

I believe your problem is that the movie exceeds the 120 minute limit on the target disc at the default recording speed (SP). Try LP instead.
