Are you talking about recording from the list? You might have to set the recorder to record chanel 3. I can't check it because my dvd recorder is broken. I haven't done it in a while, I remember going to list and telling tivo to record to vcr and recording chanel 3, but you can't watch tv till it's finished.If you are talking about a connection try an a/b switch. All I can say is experiment
After the update to 1.15 I had to delete EVERY recording on the unit. After that, any new recordings would burn just fine. However, some have found that same failure even after a hard reboot (repower). Called Humax level-1 support and they suggested a replacement unit so I swapped it out. But I've since learned that TiVo "pushes" a DVD firmware patch (possible supplied by Humax) from 1.08 to 1.15 and that patch is the culprit. That patch is suppose to make the DVD burn at a higher spin rate. After talking with level-2 Humax support they heard of the problem and said "the unit is working as designed", meaning, the DVD drive manufacturer specs say the drive is capable of a faster burn rate. So now I have Humax DTR800 #2 and so-far-so-good, but TiVo hasn't pushed the patch onto the box yet!
Like a vcr, t.v. signal-IN connected through the 'antenna'input, the t.v. signal should pass through the dvd recorder and u should see it even if dvd machine is off.
How is dvd, Tivo, t.v. connected?
Signal connected to [video input1],[s-video input]BEFORE OR AFTER tivo ? I assume that the t.v. is the last in line??!!
I am sorry, my book does not have code explaned
