Question about Sony RDR-VX525 DVD Recorder/VCR

Open Question

Can't watch another program while one is recording

I'm trying to help my uncle with his equipment. Here's a quick profile of his equpment:

Sony RDR-VX525 DVD Recorder/VCR
Sony Bravia Flat Screen TV
DirecTV receiver

He claims that at one point, he was able to record one program onto DVD while watching another. His satellite receiver is plugged through the DVD/VCR, then to the TV.

The DVD/VCR is set to video port #4, the satellite receiver is set to video port #6.

When you program the DVD/VCR in port #4 to record a specific channel at a specific time, it starts to record the correct channel, then "follows" whatever activity is going on in port #6.

What steps are we missing here?

SOURCE: Can't play Burned DVD's

This is because when you burn a DVD and want to use it on another unit you have to finalize it. Especially from another device such as your computer. You should have the option on your computer to finalize or make disc compatible.

SOURCE: connecting and recording sony hdtv, rdr-hx780 recorder,sony dream system

I have the same system, except for the TV, I have a project (that part doesn't matter).

From your Sat. go straight to your AV receiver
Again from you Sat. (all of the AV outputs are all live), go out from either 1 or 2 and go to your recorder Line 1 in.
From you AV receiver go to your TV.

All you have to do is hit record and you will record whichever channel you are on. I am having difficulty getting it set up as a PVR, but will figure it out sooner or later.

Hope this helped.

SOURCE: How to Record TV Programs w/o Cable Box/Satellite Receiver?

Ok, I had this issue. And this is what you need. Even if you have a new HDTV, you need a converter box. The new TVs are not made to send out the signal just take it in. Best price I have seen on converter boxes was H.E.B

1. Antenna to converter box
2. Converter box to VCR
3. VCR to T.V

You will have to leave the converter box on when you are recording or leave it on when you leave the house. Also it has to be on the channel you are recording and the TV needs to be on channel 3 or 4. When you program your VCR it needs to be for the time and stuff. But put it to record channel 3 or 4. Which ever you pick for it to record off of. It really is easy. But I do hate that the people that had this great idea made it to where we can only record from one channel. I am going to try to send a diagram that I drew. Not the best artist, but you can tell what I mean. I can not seem to get it to attach the attachment. But you should not have a problem. Good Luck :-)

How do I record a programme on my new Sony smart tv


i am trying to figure out what you are asking, you asking how to record a program on your smart tv, but i sony dvd & blu-ray play.
the sony dvd & blu-ray player can only play recorder material.
the smart tv assume has streaming video rite, you would need a program like dish, cox, other types of providers, dvr, this device needs program, that can store the movies or shows, hard drive or storage device, i guess i need more information, if you are wounder how to get inter net you would need a provider and than you have streaming video, recording device that can store the information you want to watch later we call a DVR. in order to get to the setting for on line or internet you have to go into setting and look for internet options or under streaming, online configuration,

Cannot record externally from Humax bt you View box onto Toshiba RDXV60KB ( HDD & DVD modes). As I previously could? I am getting message E26 " Cannot record from this program". But the Tos


This error e26 gets thrown up on some digital rights management programs.this really just means you are not allowed to record...ever increasingly thanks to the big corps like sony drm carrier signals are put into some broadcasts to overcome copying infringements.there still is a way to do this with the right equipment.some tv channels get revenue from their advert counts so they put these signals in to ensure that you can only watch at broadcast or catchup on certain devices.what I can't figure out is I can record anything whilst it's being aired and still transfer to older equipment but not anything with latest ios and certainly not with sony recorders.

Hr836t how do i watch different channel to one recording


This unit has only one tuner, meaning you can only watch or record one thing at a time. Depending on your TV and how your equipment is installed, you may be able to split your antenna/ cable line and record on your DVD and use your TV tuner to watch another program.

When I burn a DVD (R- or R+) on a Sony RDR-GX300 it burns the DVD which plays on that unit only. If I try to play the DVD burned on Sony RDR-GX300 on any other brand or any other Sony DVD player or even on...


On That Type Of DVD Recorder,( RW,R-R+). You Will Have To Finalize The Disk. Finalizing is Necessary When Playing On Any Equipment Other Than This Recorder.Even IF Your Other DVD Equipment IS ( VR ) Format Compatible You Still Need To Finalize The Disk. After Finalizing,You Cannot Edit or Record on The Disk,Make Sure It's In Video Mode.

After recording a one hour episode, won't recognize the dvd.


Try inserting your DVD media into the PC and doing a 'quick format'. The LG is not seeing what it considers to be media that it can use. It is not seeing that you have inserted recordable media. Sometimes you can reformat the DVD or do a quick media erase, and the LG can then put on its blank "squares" that is uses for its menu selection. I think that it what it does when it 'initializes' a new media.
