Recording to dvd from sky + box

Sometimes the dvd recorder will let me record for about 10-15 minutes then goes into pause and the Copywrite Protected message comes up and will not record from that point.........Other times i get that same message from the second i press Record on the dvd recorder remote.........other times it will allow me to record a whole hour or two .......it is very unpredictable.
Any help will be appreciated....Thanks.

It sounds like you are catching the Macrovisiin copy protection on certain shows. I've personally never experienced this with my Panasonic unit while trying to record from television.

It is a bit weird. Have you checked their website to see if you can upgrade the firmware (internal programming) of the player?

HOW DO YOU BURN A DVD ON A SONY DVD RECORDER RDR


Make sure your Sony input signal is on L1 or L3 (the inputs in back of recorder) or on L2 which is for inputs for cameras(located in front).Once you get a signal, you're where you need to be. Choose your recording mode for recording speed (pull down the flap on the remote control for this button and also the input button).
Choose from between1 hour and six hours. To archive really important stuff, stick with the first 3 speeds. TV recording can be on 3, 4 or 6 hour mode.
Push the record/pause button once. This will put the recorder into the record/pause mode and then it awaits you pushing it again to start recording immediately. Just pushing record will force the machine into a 3 to five second delay before actually recording anything so you might mess up and miss the first few seconds of your input. Suggest you use a dvr-rw or dvd+rw to practice on.

When your recording is done, just push the pause again. It stops recording but allows you to add more on to the first recording without starting a new chapter if you want. Just continue to release the pause button to continue.
If you are satisfied that you are finished, then push the pause button to stop recording. Wait for the info to be written(flashing message on screen). When it stops, you may play the dvd.
Notice- since the dvd has not been FINALIZED, you may only play it back on this unit without finalizing. It will not play on other dvd players unless you finalize it first.
To finalize, look on remote for the TOOL button. Press it once. Now push DISC INFO once. Use arrow keys and enter button on remote for the following. Scroll down to FINALIZE and press enter.
Use arrow keys to scroll to OK. push the ENTER button. Finalizing should take between 30 seconds and 2 minutes.

Warning- if titles or chapters are to typed in, it must be done BEFORE finalizing. Finalizing afterwards cannot be done.
Erasing can be done in part or all if using an RW+ or RW- disc

How do i connect dvd recorder to tv only receiving sky channels through skybox


If you have two scart sockets on your tv,then connect a scart from av1 on the dvd into the tv,then connect a scart from the sky box into av2 on the dvd,your recording channel on the dvd will be av2.
If you only have on socket on the tv,then connect a scart from av1 on the dvd into the sky box,your recording channel will be av1,connected like this you may have to turn off the sky to watch dvd`s.

Vcr to dvd


Hi I am Vortash sometimes you can sometimes not it depends if the movie you are trying to record has an electronic watermark .
This is an embedded signal within the movie to stop copyright breach .. there are devices available that cancel these watermarks out and you will find a few on Ebay or Amazon . Home videos and early films will usually copy no problem later more up to date films will most definitely be copywrite protected and have the watermark .. hope this is of help regards Vortash

DVD recording.


Sounds like the DVDR is recording from the digi-box through the TV, so when the TV is switched of or into standby the signal is lost, causing the recorder to pause.

Assuming the digi-box has two scart sockets, connect as follows:

  • Scart 1 or TV scart of the digi-box to the TV.
  • Scart 2 or VCR/DVD scart of the digi-box to scart 1 of the DVDR3380.
The TV aerial should already be connected through the digi-box and DVDR3380 to the TV

To record from the digi-box, select AV1 / E1 / EXT1 on the DVDR3380

Pause Protected


dbronx,
You might try unplugging the unit for several minutes in an attempt to reset the logics from ROM... TruTech is just one of those WallyWorld/Target specials that have very little support and breakdown frequently.. If I might suggest, it sounds as though you haven't had this unit long - take it back and get your money for it and go out and get a major player in the market. At least when it breaks you can more easily get some support...
A lot of these off-brands we get in here for repair just aren't worth the time and effort to repair and you would be surprised how many brands there are...
