Question about Pioneer DVR-640H DVD Recorder/HDD Recorder

Pioneer DVR 640 H

My time left on recorder shows ZERO although I know there is over 20 hours (at least) still left. I cannot record on the HD because of the 0 mins. time left. At the moment I can edit recorded programmes but cannot divide them. I tried optimitising a few times but I think I need to drop more programmes from the list. I can record the programmes from the HD to individual discs and eliminate these programmes from my HD successfully. I have not yet contacted ioneer but would like some external advice. Thanks.

Re: Pioneer DVR 640 H

You may have CDs stored in the Jukebox taking up space- if so delete them.

You may have images stored in the photoviewer - again, delete...

Have you done any disc backups, and forgot to delete the backup file? Goto bottom of copy menu for disc backup, then in the disc backup menu, choose delete backup file.

L.S.My Pioneer DVR-550H does not record when programmed with the timer. After setting a timerprogram one can see the small red clock in the display but that disapears after some time and so the DVR does...

Make sure you have the right date and time set. You cannot set a timer program until you have the correct time and date set. Let me know if that helps.

Have magnavox dvd recorder record direcTV DVR programs w/ hdtv

I am unfamiliar with this unit.
If you have scart connecters on both, connect av2 on the tv to av in on the recorder. set the recorder to record from av source.
You should now record a program, I think the static is the fact that composite is out from the dvd only, not an input, and in on the tv, not an output.

"could not repair disc" after power outage

If this happened after a power outage and not a hit/drop then it's probably fried the board to the hard disk, you can often get another board from the same model drive and fix it, by swapping the boards over.

Pioneer dvd recorder dvr-530H

The EPG is the electronic program guide trying to download TV listings.

This is normal for this player. To disable this, you would need to turn off the TV guide function.

My dvd player will not play HD-DVDs it is an HD DVD player

This dvd player doesnt' play HD DVD's it has a HDD which is short for Hard Drive. Which means you can use it like a DVR (Digital Video Recorder) to record your favorite shows and things like that.

Does this answer your question? If not i'm not sure what you're trying to ask could you be a little more elaborate?

Hard drive shows full even after erasing 120 hours.

You should empty the recycled bin in the system and delete all temporary files on it.

Recording from guide plus

Recording from the guide requires that the unit be off to receive guide info regularly and copy it to the HD. If your reception is poor or your DVD on time is too great, the guide will not have any info, and the recording be nameless, except for channel and time info. You can force the EPG mode by removing the power plug from the back of the unit, but only do this after you have turned the unit off! While copying the guide to the HD, the display shows EPG while th unit is off, and you will hear the HD cycling.

Dvd recorder wont finalize etc

The DVD drive works harder when trying to record the info faster. As the unit ages, tracking is less precise. DVD-R copies occur at 4-16X real time. Try DVD-RW disks which copy slower (now that the price has dropped substantially), and you may find that your aging drive can still copy programs from the HD to the DVD.
