Question about Philips DVDR3576H DVD Recorder
I have used a Philips DVDR3576H for less than a year to regularly record programs off the air. About one out of ten recordings cannot be played back without sticking at some point and these programs also cannot be dubbed to a DVD. Some recordings play OK the first time but then develop a sticking point. I have found that I can remove the sticking point by using the editing feature to divide the title ten seconds before and after the sticking point but that is an awkward workaround and loses twenty seconds of the recording. This problem has occurred more frequently over time so it seems that maybe the hard drive has become fragmented and needs to be cleaned but I am not aware of a process for doing that unless erasing all program recordings will allow the hard drive to start on a clean slate so to speak. I plan to do that after I have watched or transferred to DVD all of the current recordings. Philips' only suggestion was that a proprietary signal in the program may be causing the problem but I don't buy it since I have downloaded digital video from my camcorder and have experienced the same problem. I have seen many complaints about similar problems with other hard drive recorders as well so I assume it must be an inherent problem with the current level of technology. This technology is great when it works but extremely frustrating when there is a glitch like this. Hopefully, some day, the manufacturers will acknowledge this problem and implement appropriate corrective action. Until then, I will continue to deal with this shortfall and be thankful for the ~90% successful recordings.

Check if your disc player is a twin tuner model which will allow you to do what you want. It might just need configuring properly. Otherwise there are devices on sale that will allow you to achieve your goal. Good luck.

First, I think that you must use DVD + R blank discs in order for them to play on another unit. Secondly, when dubbing is completed and you *stop* the process, usually the recorder automatically finalizes the disc.
