Question about Philips Magnavox MWR20V6 DVD Recorder/VCR
I am having trouble (that is an understatement) dubbing from VHS to DVD on my unit. I have successfully recorded from the tv onto DVDs, however when attempting to dub using the same discs, I get the error message: Recording Error, Can not record on this disc, E 4 54040990. The VHS record tab is intact, the DVD+R is long enough to hold the movie, and the record mode is set at 2hr (the length of the DVD+R). Any suggestions.
You need to go into the set up menu and select recording options. On the recording options menu, scroll down to dubbing options. On the dubbing options menu select either VCR to DVD or DVD to VCR.
Recording and Dubbing are not the exactly the same thing. You use the record buttons to record TV directly to VCR/DVD you use the dubbing buttons and set up to record DVD to VCR or VCR to DVD.
Hope this helps.
