Am I wasting time trying to solve problems on my ilo dvdr05? I would like to figure out why it doesn't work but feel my time is as important as messing with some rinky dink recorder that has one issue after another. The machine has not been abused or over used but think a better brand would save me a lot of frustration. The company/brand won't get good recommendations from me as there doesn't seem to be much support as the 800 number has been constantly busy for days. Should that tell us comsumers something!!!
Depends on your specific problems. I have had one of each models MU1, MU2 and ZU. Each one is different. See label on bottom. The best one is MU1 MU2 seemed to get a blur or moving effect upon playback. Zu is better for taping live tv. I love my MU1.I had a Lite on DVD recorder that didn't last long at all. I use ONlY SONY discs or Rewriteables and do fairly well. I am trying to find a non existent universal remote for it. Why didnt' they put more buttons on the front??? Useless without a remote. If its broke, its broken. I heard the company is no longer operating so forget it.

I'd take it back before you can't and get your money back. I bought two ILO's !one was a DVDR04 and the other was a DVDR05 and they didn't last even 6 mo. and all ILO has to say is pay us and it will work again but for how long, Until they want more money. Ithink they rig them to fail in the programing so they can charge for more programing.

Burn your DVDs at tow positions slower than what the system and discs say. It sounds as if there is a huge amount of error being introduced during the write process. Unfortunately, the old discs can only be recovered with an external program like Zero Assumption Recovery or the like....accordianman
Just run your outputs from your cable to the ILO inputs, then your ilo ouputs to the tv inputs. Use Cable remote to control channels, use ILO source button on remote to access the correct input setting on ILO. AND YES< you have to do this EVERY TIME you turn the ILO on to watch tv.. I have mine hooked up this way to record from my convertor box and My husband hates it.(when he just wants to watch tv.)

not enought memory=won't work, not enought disk space=won't work.See if you can take the time to read the "Help" section of program. That helps me a lot with my problems.
