Lost manual. Cannot get HR A591U JVC VCR program to record a future cable tv program. Seems I have tried everything but it does not record as I set up. It will record an existing show by pressing...


Timer Recording JVC VCR HR A591U
Timer recording can be programmed on-screen with
the remote control. The built-in timer allows automatic
unattended recording of up to 8 programs within 1
month.

EXAMPLE: Program a timer recording for the 26th day,
channel 125 (CATV), 11:00 - 11:30 PM on timer program
number 1 (Tape speed: EP).

When a TV is connected with an audio/video cable, turn the
TV and this VCR on and select the video input mode on the
TV.


• After timer recording is completed, the VCR turns off
automatically.
• You can program the timer recording while a regular
recording is in progress; the menu screens will not be
recorded.
• The timer recording will start at 20 seconds before the time
you predetermined.

Press MENU on the Remote.
Check the “TIMER REC SET”
option is selected, then press
ENTER.

Press SET –/+ to select one of
the program lines, then press
ENTER.

Press SET –/+ to select the
date, then press ENTER.

Set the start time, end time,
channel and tape speed as in
step 3.
NOTE: To record from external
source, press SET –/+
and set the channel to
"L". "L" will appear next
to CH 125 (or 69).

To enter other programs,
repeat step 2 through 4. Or,
press MENU twice to return
to the normal screen.

Press TIMER on the Remote.
The power will go off, the
TIMER REC indicator ( ) will
light and the VCR stands by
for recording.

To cancel a program:

Press the SET –/+ to select the
“TIMER REC SET” option in the
MENU. Then press SET –/+ to
select the unnecessary program,
and press CANCEL to cancel the
program.

I can't find my manual. I need to hook it up so that I can record tv shows I like to watch when I am not home. But I didn't do it right and I am having trouble with the remote also.


You can download a manual from http://www.funai-corp.com/support/manuals.aspx . Click on Customer Support and then Owner's Manual. Remote problems - first try new batteries then try a universal or other replacement remote, http://www.remotes.com/remotes/servlet/rs?a=Search&o=c&uid=0&m=EWD2203+&uuid=12828737757670 .

For problems with timed recording, make sure the clock is correctly set. If power goes out for more than 30 seconds, the clock will be incorrect and the timer information will be off. Insert a blank tape (or one you want to record over). Then press Menu and then go to Timer Programming. (Use the up/down arrows and then hit the right arrow button.) Set the frequency of recording followed by the day and start time of the programmed recording. Then set the end time of the recording. Next set the channel number. (with some set top boxes and TV connections, choose 3 or 4 depending on the way the setting of the RF output. Then set the channel on the set top box and leave the box on.) Then set the recording speed. Press T-set to lock in the program. If you want to watch a tape before the program starts, press T-set (turning off the timer light). Remember to press T-set afterwards to resume programmed recording. You can't record to DVDs.

I hope this helps.

Is there a way to record something on a dvd from the tv?


Which model do you have? Some of the GoVideo DVD/VCR units are only DVD players so you can only record to the VHS tape. If you have a DVD writer version, you may find it tedious but doable. First load the blank DVD and set the Disc Record mode (you will see an on-screen prompt) for VR (this lets you do more editing of the video) or Video (this choice is compatible with more players). Then set the REC Mode by pressing that button repeatedly (SP (2 hours per disc), LP or XP(1 hour per disc). For one-touch recording (recording the current program that you are receiving on the device), select your Channel and Audio track then press REC. If you press REC several times, you will set when the recording stops. Otherwise it will not end until you press STOP.

For timed recording, press Timer Record. Then go through all the items to set the DVD recording information. Record mode, Channel, start and stop times. The left and right arrows let you change menu sections and the up down scroll through the settings. Press Enter to save the programmed recording. Then press Return. Make sure blank media (or with enough room for the programmed item) is in the machine. On some units, you will need to turn off the machine for the Timed Recording to work.

For recording from external sources, press Input instead of Channel.

For any recording, leave a bit of extra space on the disc to Finalize the DVD if you will want to play the disc on other players.

I hope this helps.

My thomson DTI6300 digital TV recorder shows that it is recording but does not stop at the required time. No recording is actually made and the message comes up ''recording failed''. This happens whatever...


If you have no recordings and it's playing up, I'd do a complete reset as follows;

Restore Factory Defaults
This will restore all the factory settings and erase the contents of the box.
Menu>Set-up>Help>Green>Red


Format HDD
This will re-partition and re-format the hard drive.
Menu>Set-up>Help>Green>Blue


This will wipe everything you have recorded. It will also dump your 14 day Electronic Program Guide which will take upto a day to reload. Leave the unit on standby.

You might want to take this opporunity to do a channel scan as well.

I MISPLACED MY USER MANUAL


You have to go the main menu and select record times, and day. Make sure you leave your tv set on, and on the channel that you wish to record the program on. You can set the start and stop times a few minutes before and after on the vcr, just to make sure you get the whole program. You can also set the vcr to record this program every day, any day of when ever you wish you can just manually hit "record on the vcr remote. Good luck, let me know how you make out! Thanks

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?

Magnavox DVD recorder #MWR10D6


Oh my god this thing is a piece-o-junk. It seemed to work just fine until about time the 90 day warranty ran out. The for some reason it started turning itself on and off without a timer program being set or anything. I did this every day at exactly 12:00 am and 12:00 pm. I should have known something was going bananas with it, but it still did everything else it was suppose to. Then it became impossible to set proper recording timer programs because the clock settings won't activate. It's like the internal clock is stuck or someting. Tried to get help from Magnavox and Wal-Mart, but like I said, it's outside the 90 day warranty now. What I suggest you do is the same as what I'm doing now. Tell as many people as you can and warn them away from this product, this company, and the scam-job they are running with this worthless piece of plastic.

Programming errors


Several things to check 1) Your time - set it manually and remove the automatic time set 2) Try manually recording even a few min of anything (just put on channel to record, press DVD button and DVD Record button) - does it give you an error message on that disk? If so it might be because you are using 16x and machine sometimes gets messed up and won't record on those speed disks - same with +R sometimes does this - try recording on 8x -R ones. Hopefully this helps - if not try unplugging unit from wallsocket and leave off about 30min then try setting program again etc (plus current local time) and use a new disk and see if problem still occurs - sometimes just unplugging it "resets" everything and then starts working again.
