Question about iLO DVDR05 DVD Recorder

2 Answers

Recording problem After three dvd brands I have come up with the place on the help screen of the recorder on which brands SHOULD actually work with the machine. My last brand, HP, formatted fine, copied video from our camcorder fine but then I could not get the title option opened to rename the disc or titles. When I opened the dvd drawer, it asked if I wanted to finalize and I said 'no' hoping when I reclosed the drawer it would show me the title list from the recording so I could rename. Nope. It won't bring any options up as it now tells me 'bad disc' after it trys to load and tells me it is recovering from disc error. This has happened now 4 times and two of the dvd brands I have tried are listed as 'compatible' media.

You probably have a ZU unit (label on bottom) unlike the MU1, the ZU always asks to finalize before removing the disc, even on RW. Try leaving more blank space on the disc, sometimes allowing the recording to go too long also makes it throw a coaster.

Forget the list, stick to RW if you can, it will still ask you to finalize, and you will have to let it finalize it before removing it (again the MU is different and I don't have to finalize rw in order to play it in my computer) I like the MU1 so much better.

I have had two of these recorders, Using only Sony + discs or rewriteables is my solution, I will not use any thing else. It may work 1-3 times on others brands then start throwing coasters.
As to renaming, on my model I pull up the tiltle menu then select Try using rewriteables for the other problem as well My model is a little older and lets me take disc out without finalizing then when inserting select title, hit edit on remote and select rename. Maybe if you can skip the finalizing (as with rewritables it will help

Leaves blank TV screen when Return button operated


It sounds as though the unit is actually recording a DVD, but is getting no incoming signal to record. What is your recording source? Satellite and receiver? Antenna? Cable box? In the set-up menu, be sure you have chosen the proper input source; i.e., recording from where? You may be able to access that menu through the Function button on the remote, AFter setting that menu, be sure to press Return to restore the recorder to the ready mode. If you are using the RF input for recording, be sure that is selected as well, as opposed to L1 or L2. The input channel must match the output channel on your receiver, usually channel 3 or four. What is the model number?

Sylvania zv420SL8 error code E4


The error is actually a catch all for three problems or a better way of putting it three problems can generate this error Sylvania requires that you call them with the error code to get an answer on which of the three errors it could be, However I can tell you from working on these units that the issue has to do with recording laser power.

iLO DVDR05. iLo is Wal-Mart?s ?store brand?; the DVDR05 is actually the same as a CyberHome DVR 1600 Cyberhome and iLo are up for same, so their website has been taken down with basically a "For Sale" sign in its place. I hope that helps you a little. I will see if I can find a download of the manual for either of these branded devices.
