Question about Televison & Video

1 Answer

Dropped the DVR unit and now we are getting a screen with a lot of lines on it. If you lay it flat, the picture is fine. But if you tap the unit or move it at all, the picture messes up.

Can irecord on my dvr 220 pioneer from my new freeview tv


Yes you can do this. You just need to make sure that the TV outputs its picture on the scart lead that you have connected to the Pioneer unit, and you need to set the Pioneer unit to record from that scart input. Once this is done, it will be able to record whatever you have on the screen. Be aware though, if you turn off the TV it stops outputting its picture to the recorder, and if you change channel, it changes what what the recorder see's too. I hope this helps you. :)

Whiny dvr


sounds like the hard drive in the dvr is bad - they're easy to replace though - just follow the steps below.

  1. Step 1 Disconnect your DVR by unplugging any cables connected to it, including the power cable. Remove the screws located on the back of the unit that hold the top cover in place. There are usually two to six of these screws, depending on the model of DVR. Lay these screws in a safe place where they won't get lost, and slide the cover off.
  2. Step 2 Locate the hard drive. This is a rectangular metal unit that measures 3 1/2 inches wide. It is usually located away from the other hardware, often in its own bracket. There will be two to four screws holding it in place. Remove these, disconnect the cables connected to the drive, and slide it out of the system.
  3. Step 3 Check the label of the drive to see if it is IDE or SATA. It will say which one of the two interfaces it uses. Any replacement desktop hard drive of the same interface type will work in your DVR. Avoid using a laptop drive, because they won't fit and aren't designed for the high-stress environment of video streaming.
  4. Step 4 Place the new drive into the brackets, and replace the screws that were removed from the old one. Plug the data and power cables into this drive. They will insert the same way they came out of the old one. Once the drive has been installed, put the cover back on the DVR unit, and replace the screws. Hook the DVR back up to the television, and it will be ready to record.

DVR making bad DVDs


Three suggestions:
1) take it apart and clean the laser and the spindle 'hub' that the DVD rests on
OR
2) get a 'cleaner' disk that will 'whisk' any dust from the laser diode.
OR as a final suggestion
3) replace the DVD recorder with another. Plain old EIDE parallel interface units fit fine.
This is a very friendly machine in that it will accept PC compatible hard disks and DVDR drives.

No disk


Hi. I have this problem with my unit. After a lot of research on the net it apperars that this is caused by problems with the laser pickup. The laser is either dead or is on its way out and doesn't have the strength it needs to read sensitive DVDs but is OK with Audio CDs.

A lot of CyberHome units have this problem due to the poor quality of the laser pickup units they use. I have been told that they have since gone bankrupt. If it is still under warranty then it you may be able to get it repaired but otherwise it may be cheaper to get new unit.

Hope this helps

Black Screen


If the LCD screen is not broken.the LCD backlight probably went out when it got dropped. Need to take it to a service center to get it looked at.

I have no picture in the TV


I have 2 of these units and I had the same problem.There is a button on top right beside the one where you open and close the cd/dvd tray.It is marked memory on top and progressive on the bottom.You need to push this button one or two times and your picture will return.Someone may have pushed it by mistake.These are very good units and well worth whatever you paid for them.If you have more questions email me at rljackjr71@yahoo.com Jack
