DVD Recorder is ruining the DVDs

Greetings - thank you for your time.

The LG DVD Recorder (LG DR1F9H) I have will record the shows from my DVR but then when the disc is ejected it is not able to be read or recognized when I put it back it.

This appears to have started when I used the memory card slot to view some digital pictures, but I'm not sure it may have still briefly worked after that. I thought perhaps it was some simple MENU option that got messed up but I can't make sense of it.

Thanks again,

Re: DVD Recorder is ruining the DVDs

Hi after recording the disc you should finalize the disc,
finalizing fixes the recordings in place so that the disc can be played back on a regular dvd player or computer equipped with dvd rom.
finalising video mode disc creates a menu screen for navigating the disc.this is sccessed by pressing MENU/LIST or TITLE.

once you have finalized a dvd-r and dvd+r disc,you cannot sdit or record anything elseon that disc exept dvd+rw.however you can record and edit a dvd-rw disc by chosing(unfinalize) option. finalize option and then press rightarrow key
2.pree enter while(finalize) is selected.finalize menu appears. (ok) then press enter.the recorder starts finalizing the disc
note;if(disc protect),the finalize is not finalize set(disc protect off).

I located an owners manual for an LG DVD recorder for a model DR1F9H here is the link for the free download. I have been comparing the DR1F9H and the DR198H and they appear to be the same model or very similar. Hopefully this will allow you to do what you need.
if that one doesn't work, here's another one.
Hope this helps.

My DVD recorder LG RH1858 isn't recording properly. It shows the message "record blocking sidnal are detected". Please inform.

Unfortunately, your recorder is picking up a signal in the broadcast that copy-protects the show. The recorder is programmed to forbid copying of protected material. Depending on the source of the copy-protection, you may be able to block out the copy protection signal with a hardware filter. One example of these would be the Sima CT-2 that is placed between the S-out of the receiver and the S-in of the recorder.

I hope this helps.

(One common sources with this issue: a DVR that passes on the copy protection to an attached DVD recorder. Particularly some of the new Satellite/Cable receivers with built-in DVRs. The non-DVR models of the products usually filter out the copy-protection.)

Clean the lens with a soft cloth preferably cotton to avoid scratching it. Do not use cotton as it will leave fibers on the lens.

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.
