If your sat dvr is a High Defenition DVR their is a good chance this is being blocked from being copied because of the copyright protection of HDMI...tru to copy to your DVD using just the comosite outs of your sat box...the yellow cable and see if this fixes the problem.

Panasonic DMR-ES25 Trouble setting up to record TV shows


The DMR-ES25 does not have an ATSC tuner; it has an NTSC tuner. See page 54 (Specifications) of the manual at the bottom of the left column (television system). You need to add digital to analog (ATSC to NTSC) OTA converter box between the antenna and the DVD recorder. Next, you will set the converter box to the channel you wish to record and set the DVD recorder to record on a composite input (Line in) or channel 3/4 depending on how you set up the converter box.

The only remaining analog broadcasts are a few low-power stations. Unless you live close to one of these transmitters, your DMR-ES25 will not be able to tune in any channels. Make sure that you find a converter box with composite and/or RF out if you wish to use the DVD recorder. There are some currently available ATSC tuners that have built-in DVR capabilities. These might also work for you. However, many of the cheap units fail quickly.

I hope this helps.

I can record a show manualy while its on & all is fine. When I try to schedule a recrding it records but I get a blank screen upon playback. What am I doing wrong? I have directv.


Unless the tv and dvdr are paired I.E. both the same make and compatible models, then you will have problems. try setting the timer on the dvdr for a programme but set the channel to av(scart connecter used) and set the timer on the tv to the same.
Please note that AV2 on the tv usually sends the programme to the dvdr.

Recording (toshiba dvr player se-r0265


Number SE-R0265 is not a Player. It is the model number of the Remote Control for a player.

However, your question is somewhat generic for all Player/Recorders. First you must use good original manufactures DVD media for recording. TY (Taiyo Yuden) is the Toshiba recommended media in many of its manuals. Verbatim and Fuji are also very good. They are more expensive, but very much worth the extra cost in reliability and headaches. Also, some older recorders will have trouble recording/playing back/finalizing newer 8X or 16X faster media. Try to by 4X and slower media if you are having problems, even with the three recommended above.

Second, DVD-R or R/W media has to be 'Finalized' before it can play on other recorders. DVD media do not. Try using DVD media if you continue to have trouble. Also, there are two recording/format types you can choose to record with on your DVDR Recorder, Video and VR, on -R/W media. Video is automatic Video format only on DVD media and do not need to be formatted (I think) before use or finalized after done recording.
If you are still having trouble using -R/W DVDs on other players, Try DVD DVDs in Video Format.

Finally, Toshiba is know for DVD media sensitivity. Many of their recorders have Firmware upgrades. Be sure you have the latest by looking in your manual to find your Firmware Version, then check out Toshiba's support site for any upgrades. But, start with good media, finalizing -R/W media, using Video disc format, then using DVD media, in this order.

RCA Digital Voice Manager software for RP5120 "warning decoding"


Bad News... I spoke to AudioVox/RCA (800-894-0956 < Direct DVR Number) and they told me that once you get this notification of a bad file format, there is NOTHING that can be done.

I tried DOS, too. Nothing worked.

The only thing left to try is connecting the recorder to the computer via a cable from the line out of the DVR to the line in of the audio card, and record from there. I'm going to try this, then return the recorder, if possible. Mind you, I've gone through several of these recorders and all of them have had this problem... eventually.

The customer service person there at AudioVox/RCA was direct, helpful, but clear that I couldn't do anything but reformat the recorder. Though she didn't really seem to care, by her tone, one way or another. They were still reproducing this product even with the flaws that exist (they certainly did not take ownership of the problem... they said it was out of their control and the problem was just like a virus).

Trying to make DVR work after 2-17-09


I have been able to record down converted HDTV shows on my Panasonic DMR-EH50 recorder directly to the unit's hard drive and/or directly to a blank DVD-R disc.

I do not know of any DTV converter box that can provide the proper codes to the Panasonic DMR-EH50 to allow recording and scheduling of shows using the unit's built in TV Guide menuing functions (the program recording codes are essentially VCR Plus codes in the USA and VCR Video codes in the UK, and this technology was previously owned by TV Guide/Gemstar but was purchased by Macrovision within the past couple of years.)

When the DMR-EH50 is hooked up to standard RG-59/U coaxial TV cable, the cable company provides the specific VCR Plus recording codes, as well as auto setting the time and date information required for the TV Guide recording schedule menus. The VCR Plus recording codes are sent via the cable company through the coaxial cable to the end consumer's recording device. Since Gemstar's VCR-Plus patents are now owned by Macrovision, I am not sure of how this works (or will work) for non-cable/non-satellite customers or if such codes will be made available by Macrovision to record shows when one receives HDTV signals (or down converted DTV signals) from an over-the-air antenna.

Though the DMR-EH50 recorder can only record at Standard Definition (SD) broadcast resolutions, I connect the DMR-EH50 to my High Definition TV using the three progressive scan YPBPR output cables and switch my HD-TV into the YPBPR mode when I want to watch shows from the DMR-EH50.

YPBPR are the analog video signals carried by three color coded component video cables. The green cable carries the Y signal; the blue cable carries the PB signal; and the red cable carries the PR signal. The added benefit of using the YPBPR hookup is that you can 'up convert' a standard DVD disc (non HD Blu-Ray disc) in progressive scan mode to somethin akin to 720p resolution using the DM-EH50 (or any other progressive scan DVD player) to get a better quality image on your HD-TV.

Visually speaking, the same appears to hold true for playback of programs recorded on the DMR-EH50's hard drive even though down converted via the DTV converter box, and when played back on an HD-TV using the YPBPR progressive scan cabling hookup.

I also been able to successfully record programs from the DTV converter box to the DMR-EH50 recorder in both 16:9 wide screen and 4:3 normal aspect ratios, but again only in Standard Definition quality.

For NTSC and PAL formats, the correct aspect ratios for any particular TV (the rectangular height and width of your output resolution for a TV screen) can usually be setup correctly for most any DTV converter box by going carefully through the menus on the converter box. Though the converted DTV often will yield 'better looking TV' than cable, it's certainly not high definition however, as the purpose of any DTV converter box is * not * to yield a High Definition digital TV signal but a lower quality Standard Definition signal for viewing on older SD-TVs.

We must remember that what is happening here is that (by NTSC USA standards), we are transcoding (i.e., down converting) an over the air 1920 x 1080p (progressive scan) High Definition digital broadcast signal, captured by your over the air antenna, back to a Standard Definition 720 x 480 resolution analog broadcast signal (the 720 x 480 resolution is a 4:3 aspect ratio.)

Hope this helps a little -

Copying recorded footage from the DWD490RE without DirectTV Service.


Make sure the cables that used to run from the satellite are still connected even though u dont have directv, the unit will still download any software updates it needs. if the dish is no longer available, wait until the dvr is trying to aquire satellite info before u hit the menu button. it will allow u to watch saved recordings while it searches for a signal. Also you can plug a dvd recorder to the unit and transfer recordings to dvd

Recording from cable dvr


You have to hook up an AV cable from the box to the DVDR.. Out on the cable box to IN on the DVD player.
Then put your DVD player on AV1 - ( you can do this by pressing the INPUT SEL button on the DVDR remote)

Then put the Cable box on whatever channel you want to record. And press the record button on the DVDR and you will record whatever channel the cable box is on

If you can't get to AV1 then you have to disable cable box control (menu>setup>system>cable box control>off
