Re: recorder problem


it sounds like your setup is incorrect. You need to stick the antenna cable into the dvdrecorder so it can get a tv signal then the from tv recorder back out to your tv via your tv modulator. What this means is that you will need to tune your tv to a particular channel ie. channel 3 is the common one to use then change your tv channels via your dvd recorder so it record and if your dvd recorder will passthrough the signals you can probably wtach tv on one channel and then record on a different one.

good luck.

Toshiba dvr19dtkb2 dvd wont play on computer after transfering form video casette

The proper codec may not be loaded on your computer. Find the format your DVD recorder uses, Google for a codec for that format. Find a player that supports the code, download and install it onto your computer and then try the DVD.

Purchased a Technika Model 19-220. 8 months ago never used the DVD recorder because we never had freeserve. Now we are connected to Freeserve the DVD will play DVD's but no accept blanks for recording...

Thanks for posting to Fixya and it is my pleasure to guide you.

"Will not accept blanks for recording it says No Disc."

from Technika manual: Start Quote
VCR/DVD Recorder; I have connected the TV to my VCR or DVD Recorder via SCART but it is not recording. In addition to connecting via SCART, you should connect the aerial cable from the wall socket to your VCR/DVD Recorder and another aerial cable from the VCR/DVD Recorder to the TV." Also; "Check the DVD is a region 2 disc - to change the region of the DVD player, refer to section 'Changing Regions'.

Note: USB record function is only avilable in Digital/Freeview TV/Radio mode. Due to copyright laws and illegal copying/recording it is not possible to record to/from any other input/output source.

DVD MENU: To access this menu, press [MENU] button on the remote control. TV System - Choose from the following options. NTSC; Normally used for discs from North America, Japan etc.
Auto; For both NTSC and PAL. This TV/DVD player is pre-set to play Region 2 DVDs.
Tip: This television contains one TV tuner, therefore it can only record the channel you are watching or record one channel while the television is in standby mode.

You can not record to a DVD, according to their manual. That is why you get the no disc error. It does not have the play sector at the beginning of the DVD. You can record to USB Flash Drive however.

Built into this television is a USB record facility. This function is available in Digital/Freeview mode when used in conjunction with a compatible USB memory stick or USB Hard drive. The benefi ts of this are as follows:
• Pause live TV/Radio and then playback, fast forward and rewind (up to live TV)
• One button record, if you decide you want to record the current programme
• Easy programmable recording from the 7 day TV Guide
• Record TV/Radio and watch/listen back on your computer/laptop
Due to the nature of the product, it is necessary to use a high speed USB memory stick (as the TV reads from and writes to the memory stick at the same time, some memory sticks may not be suitable). You can purchase high speed memory sticks from some computer stores, alternatively, we have a selection of tested and compatible memory sticks available to purchase directly from the helpline/web site. These are available in 4GB, 8GB and 16GB. (Please check the web site/helpline for latest specifications and prices). End Quote

Good luck and please post back that you this has solved your problem and click thumbs up of your success or that I can be more helpful.

When I record to dvd I can't plan on any other DVD player - can play on the toshiba dvr but nothing else?

Have you closed the recording? If the recording is not closed out, you will have trouble playing the DVD in other players.

It could also be that your DVD player you are trying to play on is too old or not designed to use burned DVDs. I also have trouble playing some burned DVD's in older DVD players, it has to do with how the recording is done, and there is nothing you can do about it. For example, I have a Sony 5 disc changer that came with a surround sound set up... nice DVD player, but will NOT handle DVDs burned on stand alone DVD burners or burned from a PC. It reads the DVD, and displays on the front of the player that it is not a DVD, and shows nothing on the TV.

Adding a dvd player to my dvr and older tv

leave coaxcil cable on dvr ;unplug the colored wires from the dvr output and plug them into the output of the recorder;plug a second set of colored wires into output of dvr and into input of recorder;be sure to set recorder input to proper setting on recorder (input one or two) now you should be able to record what your dvr plays or just use it as a dvd player ; you will need to have all three on to watch tv though.
