Question about DVD & Blu-Ray Players

1 Answer

I have a weird problem with my Pionreer DVR-420HS DVD Player. Whenever I'm watching a DVD or a programme recorded on the hard disk for some reason it switches back to the tv yet the dvd is still playing. You can still see the timer continuing. The only way I can watch the dvd again is to switch off/on the dvd player. This happens at irregular times. Do u have any idea about the strange problem? Thanks.

If you have connected the DVD to the TV with a scart lead, the lead could be slightly loose. In this case push all the scart leads in firmly.

Pin 8 of the lead carries a switching signal. When the DVD is powered on it tells the TV to switch to that input. If the switching signal is lost the TV will switch back.

How do I record a programme on my new Sony smart tv


i am trying to figure out what you are asking, you asking how to record a program on your smart tv, but i sony dvd & blu-ray play.
the sony dvd & blu-ray player can only play recorder material.
the smart tv assume has streaming video rite, you would need a program like dish, cox, other types of providers, dvr, this device needs program, that can store the movies or shows, hard drive or storage device, i guess i need more information, if you are wounder how to get inter net you would need a provider and than you have streaming video, recording device that can store the information you want to watch later we call a DVR. in order to get to the setting for on line or internet you have to go into setting and look for internet options or under streaming, online configuration,

CyberHome DVD 1600 won't record to Sony disk


I believe the recorder is bad, it should be able to accept all brands and types of disks. You might want to try another brand and type of disk just to make sure, if it does not work, the recorder is bad. Good luck to you!

Caanot play CD-R/DVD-R burnt from PC


First check that in your user manual that the dvd player is JPEG compatible. When you say you are having the problem on other DVD's do you mean when you use DVD+R and DVD-R disks on your own player or that yu have tried to play the same DVD disk on other brand DVD players without success? You dont mention which software you are using to save your JPEG's to Disk or whether you can in fact view them on your PC. After making sure that your Windows media player displays your pictures ok, Try using the NERO dvd burning Rom programme to load your JPEG's. I am assuming that you are not trying to record a DVD in a CD burning drive? hope this helps - hattonhall

Changing Channels


Unfortunately, no. The tuner in your DVD recorder works differently than how your satellite receiver works. You *must* use the satellite receiver to select the active channel, and then send that channel to one of the inputs on your recorder. You can then record that channel. Unless your satellite receiver is has "dual tuners" in it, you are stuck watching the same channel that the DVD recorder is recording. If your goal is primarily time-shifting of shows (as opposed to archiving shows forever to DVD), you might consider getting a different satellite receiver with a built-in DVR (hard disk recorder). These allow you to mark shows in advance, have them recorded to the hard drive, and then you can watch them whenever you want, skipping all the commercials. You also get the ability to pause and rewind live TV.

Dvd recorder wont finalize etc


The DVD drive works harder when trying to record the info faster. As the unit ages, tracking is less precise. DVD-R copies occur at 4-16X real time. Try DVD-RW disks which copy slower (now that the price has dropped substantially), and you may find that your aging drive can still copy programs from the HD to the DVD.
