I'm trying to copy a tv show from my DVR and the recorder keeps saying Recording Error This program is not recordable in +vr mode. What is +vr mode?

Recording mode is set wrong, change it and try again unless there is an anti-copy signal on recording which some money hungry cable companies do to screw with customers.

    See the manual, page 8:

    What are “Recording modes”? for DVD-RW
    There are two recording modes available using this
    recorder: VR mode and Video mode. When recording to
    a DVD-R disc, recordings are always in Video mode.
    DVD-RW discs can be formatted for VR mode recording
    or Video mode recording.
    VR mode recording
    • 4 different picture quality/recording time settings available
    (SP, LP, EP, XP)
    • Not playable on regular DVD players
    • Recordings can be extensively edited
    • Total number of titles on the disc should be less than
    Video mode recording
    • 4 different picture quality/recording time settings available
    (SP, LP, EP, XP)
    • Playable on regular DVD players (after finalizing)
    • Limited editing features
    • Total number of titles on the disc should be less than
    Note :
    DVD-Video Format (Video mode) is a new format for
    recording on DVD-R/RW discs that was approved by
    the DVD Forum in 2000. You may therefore experience
    problems playing recordable DVD discs in some players.
    Symptoms include video artifacts, audio and/or
    video dropouts and playback suddenly stopping.
    Our company cannot take responsibility for problems
    playing discs recorded on this VCR/DVD Recorder in
    other players.
