Question about Hauppauge WinTV PVR2 (99016) Video Capture

Open Question

WinTV scheduler not recording on it's own. When the time comes up, it doesn't start recording and the show never gets recorded. This just started yesterday or so. I had a whole week of shows scheduled in advance to record. It recorded them earlier in the week. Now I have to manually record them. If I can't be at my computer, the show doesn't get recorded. This is frustrating. I missed an episode of Wheel of Fortune (7:30-8 pm) last night because the scheduler didn't work. I was out. I can't delete the pending recording either. What do I do?

Why dose recording in dvr goes on default date when light goes


Well, I'm trying to decipher this. Why does the recording in DVR revert to the default (date/time???) when the light goes off and comes back on.

I'm guessing you are trying to say time, not date, maybe day?

The DVR is trying to remember when a show comes on and record it, based on your settings. Usually shows come on at a specific time. DVRs usually update their scheduled recordings based on updated programming guide information. If you are constantly unplugging or causing your receiver to otherwise restart, most receivers will download an updated guide upon getting power back or restarting (DVRs themselves not having any idea how long they've been without power, download a new guide just in case after you unplugged them you moved to Arizona). During this time, the recording you set is showing the original time you set it up, because until the guide is downloaded, it has no idea that its wrong.


My best advice, even if I'm wrong about our language barrier here, stop unplugging your receiver. Leave it plugged in and powered at all times.

All times.

For ever.

How can I record TV on my laptop?


Step 1:
b> While TiVo and other devices allow users to record and play back their favorite TV shows and movies whenever they want, those who watch television on their laptops have been forced to rely upon a number of different Internet websites that host movies and television shows. Fortunately, hardware and software now exists that allows laptop users to record TV shows directly onto their laptops and replay them whenever they like. All they need is an open USB port.

Connect the USB TV tuner to the laptop using a free USB port. Connect the cable wire to the USB tuner's cable input. Insert the TV tuner's installation disk into the laptop and follow the on screen directions to install the appropriate drivers and software. When prompted by Windows, select "install software automatically" to install the device drives. When prompted by the WinTV software to choose which programs to install, ensure that the option for the WinTV scheduler is checked. Launch the WinTV 2000 software now installed on the laptop. Press the "scan" button to load all of the available television channels. The channels that the tuner is able to locate will be displayed in the bottom half of the screen. Press "close" when the scan is complete. The amount of time to complete this step will vary depending on the number of channels being added. Choose a channel to record using the channel selection buttons on the left hand side of the on screen menu now displayed. Press the "record" button located on the bottom of the screen to record the program current displayed on the screen. Alternatively, recording can be scheduled using the WinTV Scheduler software included in the WinTV installation package. From the WinTV Scheduler main window, press "add program". Next, enter the time and date in addition to the channel to be recorded. Finally, click "save program". While recording TV on the laptop is not nearly as straightforward as it is with Tivo and other similar devices, the above methods are both reliable and relatively intuitive.

I found this solution on one of your old notes (but a different machine). I set up a scheduled record for 11:59 PM to 12:01 AM for the current day, then set up the scheduled record for the next day. The VCR recorded both the initial 2 minute session and the later one which I wanted to record.

I had the same issue. It turns out that the recorder has to be switched off otherwise it won't record. The unit will power itself on at the scheduled time and record your program. It doesn't make any sense to me why this would be a requirement but it solved the problem for me.

My stiletto records for about 18 minutes then stops


Daylight savings time change a few months ago messed up the timer recording schedule - you must now fix it. Daylight savings time changes will always mess up this recorder. You must reset your recording schedule.

2 other remote possibilities:

If no signal is present at the time the recording is scheduled to start, the recording will be skipped.

Make sure you have followed all instructions on pp. 55-58

Set a timed recording


Do you have your operation manual? It will tell you how to set up a timed recording. Recording options are set via the remote. Look for an option as "Scheduled recording" or similiar. Date, start & end time, channel, recording speed are all set. If you are missing your manual do a google search with your model number. A quick look at the Samsung website was not fruitful.

Short Recording Time


TiVO also plans for other upcoming shows in total recording time. So if you 12 hours recorded, and another 20 or so hours scheduled in upcoming all as don't delete, then it won't allow additonal shows manually
