When I go to system menu and set my program to record,everything is fine, on returning home I find that it has not recorded, I go back to system menu to find that all the programs ar reading no program information on the screen, I then check the programs on the TV and everything is OK. the arial first goes into the DVD recorder and then to the TV so this is not making sense, this problem can hapen more than once on the same night, record one and not the other. Please can you help!! ptrsmeth.
I had this problem. I found that when you record from the EPG it can change quite frequently. When this happenes then your recording will automatically get deleted. To sort this out I would use the Guide plus system on your box and then the problem wont occur any more

Do you mean the RDR-VX560 DVD recorder/VCR combo? With the original remote for the recorder, you need to press System Menu (which is the left button on the row of large buttons above the arrow key circle). Then use the arrow keys to select Setup, press Enter and then select Clock Set. (Press Stop before attempting to access the System Menu. Then make sure that the remote is in the same mode as the recorder. The Command Mode for the recorder is set from the system menu as well. The remote can be reset by pressing and holding Enter, then press and hold 1, 2, or 3. Hold both the enter and the digit listed for 3+ seconds.)
To provide more help, I need more information about your Digital Stream remote. I'm not sure if there is a button that will match the System Menu and the Command Mode on your remote.
Timer Recording JVC VCR HR A591U Timer recording can be programmed on-screen with the remote control. The built-in timer allows automatic unattended recording of up to 8 programs within 1 month.
EXAMPLE: Program a timer recording for the 26th day, channel 125 (CATV), 11:00 - 11:30 PM on timer program number 1 (Tape speed: EP).
When a TV is connected with an audio/video cable, turn the TV and this VCR on and select the video input mode on the TV.
• After timer recording is completed, the VCR turns off automatically. • You can program the timer recording while a regular recording is in progress; the menu screens will not be recorded. • The timer recording will start at 20 seconds before the time you predetermined.
Press MENU on the Remote. Check the “TIMER REC SET” option is selected, then press ENTER.
Press SET –/+ to select one of the program lines, then press ENTER.
Press SET –/+ to select the date, then press ENTER.
Set the start time, end time, channel and tape speed as in step 3. NOTE: To record from external source, press SET –/+ and set the channel to "L". "L" will appear next to CH 125 (or 69).
To enter other programs, repeat step 2 through 4. Or, press MENU twice to return to the normal screen.
Press TIMER on the Remote. The power will go off, the TIMER REC indicator ( ) will light and the VCR stands by for recording.
To cancel a program:
Press the SET –/+ to select the “TIMER REC SET” option in the MENU. Then press SET –/+ to select the unnecessary program, and press CANCEL to cancel the program.
If you go into the DVR's Menu/Setup there will be menu selections to
"Restart Receiver" and "Reset Receiver" In the reset menu you should find three options "restart receiver" which
is roughly equivalent (and possibly safer) than the reset button or a
power cycle. "Reset defaults" will clear all of your preferences and
personal setting without affecting recordings. "Reset Everything" pretty
much returns the receiver to ground zero and deletes everything.
It sounds as though the unit is actually recording a DVD, but is getting no incoming signal to record.
What is your recording source?
Satellite and receiver?
In the set-up menu, be sure you have chosen the proper input source; i.e., recording from where?
You may be able to access that menu through the Function button on the remote, AFter setting that menu, be sure to press Return to restore the recorder to the ready mode.
If you are using the RF input for recording, be sure that is selected as well, as opposed to L1 or L2. The input channel must match the output channel on your receiver, usually channel 3 or four.
What is the model number?
