Re: Lack of communication between DVD player and TV
I have just had the same problem. I changed the scarts over in the back of the DVD player, i.e top to bottom and bottom to top. I can record from the TV one way round and to view it and finalise etc I have to change them over. I have no idea why this is happening but it is a quick fix so I can record the rugby this PM.

They don't "communicate". Communication implies bidirectional transfer of info. Your TV is just a monitor. You need to feed the VCR/DVD Recorder with what ever you want to record. The TV is just used to verify what you're recording and to watch it playback. Think about the direction of signal... ANT/CABLE ---> VCR ---> TV

The answer is YES YOU CAN! Take advantage of one-touch recording from videotapes to DVD+/-R and RW discs or from DVDs to VHS tapes. A variety of different inputs also let you record from compatible camcorders, external TV tuners or cable boxes.

Most likely the dvd is dirty, scratched, or chipped. Try cleaning the dvd disk with a soft cloth (chamois works best). Look at the surface of the disk and if it is scratched lightly, dust and dirt particles, fingerprints, etc will cause refractions from the laser light in the dvd player, which is then read as an error by the dvd player. Cleaning it with a soft cloth will sometimes help.
If that does not work, hold the disk up towards a light source and look for light coming through from the other side. If this happens, the disk is unreadable and unrepairable as the data source has been corrupted.
