Question about Philips Magnavox MDV650 DVD Recorder

3 Answers

Strange message display when switched on.

I have recently purchesed and recieved a "MAGNAVOX DVD RECORDER WITH DIGITAL VIDEO CAMERA INPUT" through ebay. When i switch the system on the following message appears on the display screen "NO TVP" and nothing seems to work i.e DVD will not open or close, you cannot switch the system on or off , no functions seem to work. I originally assumed that the message meant No power to the televison, however I checked many time that the TV was connected and switched on.

Unfortunately I did not recieve a manual from ebay so i'm lost as to my next steps.
Cheers
Matt Burns

    S video. When the system arrived there were no other connections other than the power cord. I used the connections from my hand held Video recorder. I also tried the connections from my current DVD and video machines with the same outcome. The last thing I tried was plugging in the hand held video connection into the AV Inlet on the Magnavox and from the Magnavox 'Av Out" I connected to the TV "Av In" with the current video machine connection. Regardless of all this the same message appears without any interruption. When I try the Remote control a little light appears on the display under the message "No TVP" but it quickly disappears. It's as thought there is some electrical fault

    Sorry I have the message incorrect. The message displayed is TV ONP, my apologies

    After downloading a manual it would appear that this message is some sort of reminder message making certaing that the correct channel on the TV has been selected, however there is no way of confirming this reminder I.E the message just stairs back at me in an almost frozen state I.e no other functions on the DVD recorder works EG the dVD door does not open or close , i cannot switch the system off and on.I'm think the system may be stuffed.

The "TV ONP" message is happening because the DVD recorder is waiting for you to complete the "initial installation" on the TV (where you will select what language you want to use and a few other basic settings).

Provided that your DVD recorder is hooked up to your TV properly, you should turn on your TV and see the "initial setup" screen for the dvd recorder. Use your DVD recorder's remote control for this screen.

See page "30" in the manual that was posted for instructions on going through these screens. Note, though, that page "30" in the manual, is actually page 44 on the pdf file.

To summarize what the manual says, it basically says:
- Use the remote, pointed properly at the dvd recorder. Use the four-way pad and the "OK" button to navigate the menu.
- pick your menu language from the menu shown onscreen
- now pick your "audio language" from the menu
- now pick your "subtitle language"
- then pick your "tv shape" (e.g. widescreen or normal)
- connect your cable tv or satellite to the dvd recorder and press ok
- wait as the dvd recorder automatically programs in the available channels
- once done, "Auto ch. search complete" will appear on the screen.
- press the "SYSTEM-MENU" button on the remote to remove the menu and begin normal operation

You're done!

The recorder will loop through all the channels on your cable tv and "autoprogram" the working ones into it, so part of the instructions that you read on the manual will talk about setting that up. If you have a digital or proprietary cablebox that doesn't use the traditional TV channels (e.g. the tv is supposed to just be on channel 3 all the time), then the dvd recorder will only find that one channel, which is fine.

Hi,

I am sorry but I suspect your unit has some form of malfunction (hardware or software). I would advise getting in contact with the Ebay seller that you bought it from. Was it auctioned off as brand new and fully functioning?

Records & dubs but very poor resolution


Hi,

You've got a Dish Network's HD DVR and a Toshiba 720P HDTV - so this part of the mix will maintain the HD pictures and high quality digital audio that you're used to seeing.

The trouble begins when you introduced the Magnavox VCR / DVD device. The highest quality video content that this device can record is the 480 type, regardless of the input or source quality - which in your case would be 720P via HDMI cables. 480 is considered "SD" or "standard definition". This is the weakest link in your setup and is responsible for your unsatisfactory results.

The Magnavox will "upconvert" to 1080 lines of resolution. The key here is the term "upconvert" True HD recordings are taken of a scene and capturing either 720 or 1080 lines of resolution in the image or video (such as a camera taking a photo or video); or recording the playback of a previously recorded 720 or 1080 lines of resolution source. Recording a 480 lines of resolution source with a an 720 or 1080 lines of resolution device will not make the image HD. The recording can not possibly be better than the original. In fact, due to losses, each generation of copy becomes worse and worse. Upconverting simply "fills in" the missing parts between the 480 source and 720 or 1080 output with what it "thinks" is missing data. The results are what you see on the screen. The original capture did not save more info that 480 lines of resolution so it is really impossible to improve it.

The recording can not ever exceed the quality of the original (the Dish Network DVR at 720 or more) and will only be as good as the weakest link (the Magnavox DVD / VCR at 480). Additionally, the moment you change from digital to analog, you lose quality instantly. Digital signals - both video and audio will always be faithfully reproduced do to error correcting technology, etc. that simply isn't available in the analog world.

You need to use a digital recorder capable of capturing and playing back of 720 or 1080 lines of resolution video and AC3 audio for optimum video and audio on a Blu Ray recorder or other device with hard drives or memory such as MP3 recorder. Otherwise you'll have to accept reduced quality of standard L & R analog audio and 480 lines of resolution of SD video. You can not expect HD audio and video if you try to save to equipment designed for SD / analog.

    I cannot record digital when I try to set up my Magnavox ZV457MG9 (DVD). The unit will only record in the external L1. I have a Comcast box.


    This is normal for the ZV457MG9 units. The Magnavox ZV457MG9 does not have an analog (NTSC) tuner; additionally there is no digital (ATSC or QAM) tuner either. It will only record on line in (L1) which is a composite input (limited to SD). The HDMI port on the recorder is an HDMI out to TV, not an input. The component video jacks are also only outputs.

    The manual for the Magnavox ZV457MG9/F7 is available here: http://download.m4c.magnavox.com/files/z/zv427mg9_f7/zv427mg9_f7_dfu_aen.pdf . The unit was manufactured for Magnavox by Funai; thus another link to the manual is http://www.funai-corp.com/6pdf/om/ZV427MG9.pdf .

    I wish that I had better news for you.

    (If your DVD/VCR recorder had a tuner, it would record off a coaxial (antenna) cable input. Many DVRs can record off the HD connection (HDMI or component); that may be a better option for replacing this Magnavox unit.)

    I am a member of a paranormal group. Can I use my magnavox MWR10D6 DVD recorder to record from a cam. Is this possible?


    As long as your DVD recorder has line inputs yes you can.

    If your DVD recorder has a DV input, you can use a firewire cable. If your DVD recorder has audio and video inputs you can hook the output of your camera to the line inputs of your recorder and record in realtime
    Most DVD recorders do have inputs, you can use either the Y/C (black round connector) or the composite (yellow connector) along with the audio inputs (red & white) RCA plugs depending on the type of camera you are using.

    I forget the exact steps for the remote to record from my video camera to dvd recorder


    You have to plug the video cam into the front ports of the Magnavox.
    Then press the Setup Button
    Go to Required Settings --> OK
    Video Input --> OK
    Go to E2 --> make sure it says "video in," unless you are using an S-Video connector --> OK
    Press Setup

    Start playing from Camcorder and make sure that you can see the picture on your TV screen.
    Press REC on the Magnavox

    Good luck!

    It does not display or play


    You have to run a search of available channels on the DVD recorder through the setup menu. After the recorder has located all available channels, make sure the TV is on the correct input. (Video 1, Video 2 or whatever)
    If all else fails, then read the manual. HaHa
