Does this problem only occur when a HDMI cable is inserted (No Disc problem)? If so then the hardware is probably faulty. Try returning it for a new player.

DVR620KU From the HDMI connector, how to get non-pinched vertical HDMI images on the TV monitor and on the DVD. Recorded DVD's have been Finalized

Using a DVD-RW disk, try ALL different recording settings even if they don't seem probable and record a sample. If output is correct with all BUT the HDMI-cable, go through ALL picture format settings on the TV when a HDMI-cable is used. Different discs and HDMI cables don't have anything to do with this. I'm still chewing on this...

I am supposed to be able to record from VHS to DVD and yet I am unable to do so. I asked the question yesterday and did not receive and answer.

Not knowing what components you have makes it difficult to assist you. As a general note, HDMI provides the best connection for video and audio.

HOWEVER, the HDMI source can talk through the cable to the connected device. A cable box, seeing that something other than a TV is connected to it, will turn off the signal rendering the connected device useless.

To get around the problem, cable the devices together using component video and audio cables (5 cables are required). They are typically colored red and white for audio and green, blue and red for video.

Trying to get the VCR/DVD recorder to record shows from direct tv using HDMI

You can not use HDMI to connect to a recorder due to blu-ray rules of no high quality recording being allowed. The only way to record off of Direct TV is to use audio and video cables (red,white and yellow.You also may need something like a videostabiizer etc. to do the job. IT IS ALL ABOUT THE MONEY!!!!!!!!

Vcr tape . does not record to dvd-r disc Using hdmi cable from TV to recorder.

It is a HDMI OUT on the DVD/VCR Recorder.

Panasonic DVD recorder #DMR-EH65. It will accept a blank dvd then go into read,I can hear the lens assembly go back and fort several times,then it says disc error.Did the lens life expire?

Hello timmy: The recording process on the dvd recorder side is done is done by a seperate lens from the playback, so there could be something wrong with the writable side of the optical assembly, another thing to consider trying is the cleaning disc if you haven't tried this, another brand of blank disc and finally a firmware update is available from panasonic for the specific model you have, I don't know if you have updated it but here is the overall description: DMR-EH55 DVD Recorder Firmware Update

DVD hooked up to sony bravia tv: have dvd power on, but can not get any set up menus (or anything) from dvd to show on tv screen.Unable to set up remote as menu does not appear on tv screen.

Hook up the player with RGB (Red-Green-Blue or component) cables and try the picture. If everything works OK, then go to the menu and turn on the HDMI output and set the resolution (if needed).
Not every HDMI unit works with every HDMI TV. You may also have a bad HDMI cable. On a DVD recorder, you may have your HDMI cable connected to HDMI IN. You must use HDMI out.

How to connect motorola cable box to samsung dvd/vcr model vr375 to a Westinghouse hdtv with 2 hdmi connections

The DVD-VR375 does not have an HDMI input. The connection should be:
• RED WHITE & YELLOW CABLE from your cable box (AV OUT) should connect to the DVD-VR375 (AV IN 1). Set the DVD-VR375 to AV 1 using the INPUT SEL. button.
• Next, connect an HDMI cable from the DVD-VR375 (HDMI OUT) to the TV (HDMI IN). Set the TV to the proper source.
This connection would allow the recorder to work as a pass through and will let you record TV programs as well as watch your cable channels.

Hope this helps!

Problems establishing audio output from DVD RW to TV

If you own a Digital Video Recorder, such as TiVo, or a DVR from a Cable or Satellite provider, then you know you can record to the device's hard drive to view TV shows at a later time, much like the old VCR. However, saving those TV shows becomes difficult as the Hard Drive starts to fill up. The answer to saving your shows is to record them to DVD! This can be accomplished easily by hooking up a DVD Recorder to your DVR
Here's How:
  1. 1)record a TV show on your DVR that you want to save to DVD!
  2. 2)Turn on the DVR, DVD Recorder and the TV that the DVD Recorder is connected to. In my case, I have my Samsung DVD Recorder (no hard drive) hooked up to my TV via an RCA Audio/Video cable from the rear outputs on the DVD Recorder to the rear RCA inputs on my TV. I use a seperate DVD Player for playing DVDs, but if you use your DVD Recorder as a player as well, use the best cable connections you can to connect to the TV. See the articleTypes of A/V Cables for more info.
  3. 3)Connect an S-Video or RCA video cable and composite stereo cables (red and white RCA plugs) from the DVR to the inputs on your DVD Recorder. If your TV has Component inputs, connect the Component Out from the DVD Recorder to the Component In on the TV, otherwise you can use S-Video or Composite. You will still need to use RCA audio with your video connection.
  4. 4)Change the input on your DVD Recorder to match the inputs you are using. Since I'm using the rear S-Video input, I change my input to "L1", which is the input for recording using the rear S-Video input. If I was recording using the front analog cables it would be "L2", the front Firewire input, "DV". The input select can typically be changed using the DVD Recorder remote.
  5. further instructions continued in my next comment post please read.
