    When trying to record from TV, I get a recording error message, that states can not record from this disc and the number E454037380

    It has not always done this, and I have bought several different spindles of blank dvd's, thinking that maybe I got a bad lot. It doesn't matter, it will not record from the TV. The DVD Recorder/VCR combo is maybe 2.5 years old.

Before you can watch a recorded DVD on another DVD player you must finalize the disc. to finalize the disc put the recorded disc into the DVD recorder, when the DVD loads it will show the titles that are recorded on the DVD on the screen
push the stop button it is the button with the square on it. the screen will go blank or it may let you watch whatever tv channel you are on if you have your tv ran through the recorder, push the setup buton a new screen will come up, with the arrow down button scroll down and highlight disc edit, press ok another screen will come up, with the arrow down button scroll down and highlight "finalize", press "ok" it is the button in the middle of the arrow keys
scroll up and highlight "yes" press "ok" the recorder will finalize the disc and it can be watched on any DVD player, just remember when you finalize a disc you cannot add anything else to the disc.

Yes
make sure the cables are connected correctly, the manual will show that.
If the mwr20v6 has a tuner you must have the channel on the dvd set to the program, if it has no tuner, you must have your tv set to the correct channel.

Manual recording procedure


I am assuming that is what they ment.

Because a DVD Player would not be able to Recored anything at all. And he did not mention anything about there being a VCR in it or anything about a VCR in Fact.

You would have to Have a DVD Recorder to Record anything onto DVD's

Connecting my laptop to DVD recorder and recording onto the recor


You FIRST need a way to get the Signal, INTO the laptop, you need to get a USB to TV/Video Dongle, Now using this and the software that came with it, as well as other software, You Hook up the OUTPUT from the DVD Player, to the Video Input on the USB Dongle, Either, Component (Best) or Composite, (OK) Video, and AV Audio, and set to "Record" on the PC, and "Play" the DVD and then the PC will "Record" the incoming signal from, the DVD player, to the HDD in the PC. Once digitised, and saved it can be manipulated, any way you want.
Now if you want to do the REVERSE IE: Take a signal FROM the PC, to the DVD, then you simply setup the DVD as a Second monitor, use a TV to set it all up, once it is all working on the Laptop and TV, simply swing the Output, away from the TV's Input, to the DVD's Input,and select record, the PC, will then output whatever, to the screen, and whatever is displayed on-screen, will be recorded by the DVD's hard drive.
You First though must setup the PC to have multiple monitors, it is best to get the most up to date drivers and install them in the PC. FIRST. Go to this MS link below it shows you how to set u,setup as CLONE mode, I think will be best, also don't set initial resolution too high to start, set it to say 800x600 32 bit, to start, and work up, until your TV complains and stop. As related once setup, swing the PC's output to the DVD, and record.

I cannot program the vcr to record i just do not know how to I can play tapes or wath the disk but cannot recore


make sure the tv is on channel 3, and the vcr also on channel 3 -if trying to record from cable or satalite. then make sure tape is rewound all the way. do a test by hitting record on vcr. let it record for a few minutes. rewind it, then just hit play. Dont change any channels until you are ready to record the program of choice. After this test. And recording is successful. Rewind the tape again. And change the channel to your choice. Hit record at time of or go into menu of your vcr and set up a time to record shows.

Recording does not work


Could bethat your Hard Drive is full. Make sure it isn't and if it is then try erasing some programs. Also, check the User's Guide to reset the unit (usually done by pressing a combination of buttons for about 10 seconds)
