Question about Panasonic DMR-EZ47V DVD Recorder/VCR

1 Answer

Copying vhs on to dvd

The instruction book is incomprehensible and the girl on the phone apparently doesn't have a high school diploma. But I followed her instructions and the unit said "rec-copying." It said "done" or something, so I tried playing the DVD to see how I did. There was a prompt on the screen that said something about recording not being finalized, but it disappeared before I could read the whole thing. I hit the "rec" button, thinking that would help, and I ended up with 10 seconds of an Arby's commercial from the TV and no movie.

As I said, the manual is less than informative. Please advise.

There are two methods for copying - one is called "one-touch dubbing" and the other is called the "GUI Method".
For one touch dubbing obviously you have the tape and disc both inserted and have the tape at the position you would like to start copying. Press and hold the Copying button in the direction of the media you're copying to (in this case, the arrow pointing to the DVD) for 3 seconds and it will either start copying or will prompt you on-screen of the television...

If you are using a disc that can be finalized (anything other than DVD+RW or DVD-RAM), you will get a message on the TV that says press Record to record and finalize or press Play to record without finalizing.

The GUI method is to press Functions - Copy, then select the copy direction and start copying.

Before finalizing a disc, when you go to play back the video it always starts with the last recording, not the first. This is probably why you think there is no movie there other than the 10 seconds of Arby's commercial (mmm, Arby's). However, this is the purpose of the Direct Navigator function. If you access it, you should see thumbnails of all of your recordings. Once you finalize the disc and playback, it should start from the beginning.

I have a grundig gr1000(b) vhs/DVD combo. Is it possible to record from video cassette onto DVD? It doesn't seem to be mentioned in the instruction manual. Thanks for your help.


Yes! You can select to copy from VHS to DVD or DVD to VHS, set the VHS tape ready to play and press pause, then put a blank recordable DVD disk in and then select copy, the options for VHS to DVD or DVD to VHS can be selected and then it will copy, when the tape gets to the end it will turn off itself, if you want to stop earlier you will have to stop it! Hope this helps.

Is it possible the VHS you're trying to copy is copy-protected? Apparently, the MC6 displays "waiting for signal" when you're attempting to copy a copy-protected (commercial) video. I had success converting my own homemade VHS tapes. I just bought my MC6, and thought I'd pass along some tips I got from others: You know you're recording when a red ring around the large Record button lights up and it actually says "recording" on screen, and adjust HQ to SP to get 2-plus hours of video on the DVD.

Yes, you can, I have this unit and have actually copied a dvd to a vhs and then copied back to a dvd as I wanted a dvd copy to give a friend. The directions in the book are really quite simple. They tell you how to set the vhs to the spot where you want to start copying, etc.

I have not yet tried copying my family vhs tapes, but don't see a problem, just a big project. Good luck.

This unit will not record certain types of TV and no copy-protected VHS and it doesn't tell you when you have those situations--and it doesn't come up with an error message that tells you what you are doing wrong. First step is to be sure that your source material is not copy-protected.

Sylvania SRDV495 DVD-VHS


I have the same unit, a SRDv495 and have also been having
a bad time getting dvd's that will work in my machine. I also
bought mine from Sears. I have found one that works every
time and that is a MAXWELL DVD-RW. The trick I think is
the speed of the DVD, so you need to use the ones that have
Up to Max 2X, 4.7 GBgo, 2 Hrs. I find these work every time.
Hope this helps.
