Question about Hitachi DVD & Blu-Ray Players

1 Answer

I have an Hitachi HDD/DVD recorder [ DV-DS163E ] which is a great piece of kit but the playback picture quality is often poor, and breaks up into small squares on the screen. Can you please suggest what the problem is.

After I saw that you wanted a fee, I popped to my local electrical store and the engineer there suggested that I record via my sky dish rather than my cable because the signal would be stronger. This seems to have solved the problem.

Want to copy vhs to dvd.


I convert VHS to DVD using a Toshiba DVD Recorder that I purchased from Costco a few years back. I plug the VCR into the DVD recorder using RCA jacks, press PLAY on the VCR and REC on the DVD recorder and let it sit and record. I can record up to 8 hours of video onto one DVD at low quality. After this, I finalize the DVD so it can be read on other DVD players.

You have probably found out now that you would need to get your digital reception by connecting a set top box to the LG, say to AV1, then select AV1 when making a recording.

Hello, when dubbing from DV mini tape to HDD


well one solution may be the speed you are recording at. L.P. recording on a dvd often creates this problem. but usually it is when you copy dvd to dvd, not mini dvd to dvd
Never record more than 2 hrs on a disk
there are programs for a work around that reprocess the dvd vob file with adjustments for the sync.
could also be a hardware problem
is your mini dv long play source as well?

Cheers

Is it possible to copy all the files from my dvd recorder to removable media such as dvd's or a portable hard drive? i would like to back up all the family albums etc


If you have a computer with a dvd writer, there is no need to use an external DVD recorder to copy discs. The DVD software on your computer will have a way to temporarily record a disc to hard drive then allow you to insert a blank disc for recording.
A consumer DVD recorder will not have this capability. There is usually no way to output digital files; the machines are intended for playback to a TV.

Playback Problem


open the recorder, 4 screws at each corner, wipe the playing head and the voice reccognition head, to the right of the playing head head with a baby wipe, you will be amiazed what **** comes off it. DON'T scrub it just wipe lightly, spin the playing head so it's clean. If you have a lint free cloth ( a glasses cleaning cloth you get in the case is brilliant) Try the tape (before you put it in make sure everything is DRY!) and your problem should be solved. It worked for me! and that came from a TV engineer

Poor picture when recorded on vcr


run a head cleaner through, a wet one is best and this should improve the quality of playback. Also check the condition of the vcr cassettes you are using, old ones do get worn out and leave dirt on the rollers and heads
