Timer programming


The remote control is key to timer recording. Notice the selections are color-coded: grey-black for VCR, gold for DVD. Then look at the second and third rows of buttons. Each button has multiple functions depending on if the VCR or DVD button has been pressed. To record from TV signal to VHS, press the VCR very top button. (The controller will also control your TV if set up properly, so be sure the small switch at the top-left of the controller is set to the VCR/DVD side. I use a separate controller for my TV so I never change this.) Now press the "PROG." button located beside the "3" button. (Your television must be on and set to "see" the VCR not the normal TV signal.) Now look at the second row of buttons, the ones with the "+" signs. The grey words below them indicate what they'll do when pressed (the same buttons do what the gold words say when the DVD is selected.) So to set the start time, press the first "+" button with the word "START" below it. That sets the start time of the show you want to record. It'll go in 30-minute intervals if you hold it down, otherwise it's a minute-at-a-press. If you go too far, you can back up with the third row's "-" button. When you have the start time set, move on to the next button labeled "STOP" and similarly set the end-time of the program. Continue with the third "+" button to set the date you want to record. Lastly, set the channel by pressing the fourth "+" button labeled "CH." It's a bit tedious if you have a high channel number to get to. When you have all these set properly, it's important to then press the "TIMER" button (located next to the keypad number 6). That turns the VCR off but "watching" for the settings you've just made, and it'll wake up and do the recording at the proper moment. You can confirm you've got it waiting by looking at the display on the VCR; to the left of the channel number a red "clock" image should be lit. That says it's waiting. You can program several shows to record by repeating these steps, or you can do them all sequentially by setting the first one, then pressing the "PROG" button again (rather than the "TIMER" button) and setting up the next recording. When you're done, THEN press the "TIMER" button and the VCR will go to sleep until it's assigned wake-up time.

Timer Recording


This is from the KR10 manual. Hope it helps.
1. Set the clock before setting a timer.
2. Insert a recordable disc with enough space.
Then:
1. Press [TIMER PROG] on the remote
2. Use up/down arrows to select "New Program" then press [ENTER]
3.Use up/down arrows to enter the date, then press right arrow
4. Use the arrow keys to enter the start and end time, then press right arrow key.
5. Use the up/down arrows to select the external input position to which your cable/satellite box is connected, then press [right arrow]
6. Use the up/down arrows to select a recording mode.
7. Press [ENTER] when all items are entered.
8. Press red [I/O ON STANDBY] to set a timer programming.

DO NOT FORGET THIS LAST STEP! The timers will not work if the recorder is not in standby mode.

Magnovox MWR20V6 will not begin recording when it should.


This is more a work-around than a solution, as the unit is failing to function normally; however, having the identical problem I observed that the unit is failing to power on at 2:00 minutes before beginning recording, a necessary step to record to DVD.

My work-around is the following:

1) Set up the timer, inputting necessary date, time, etc. as normal. With the unit still powered on, start the timed recording mode by pressing timer set, as normal. You will see the red clock icon and the DVD logo iluminate on the VFD.

2) Press the Standby-On power button. This will power the unit on in VCR mode. You should at this time be unable to switch from VCR to DVD mode since the DVD is still in timer mode. LEAVE THE UNIT POWERED ON in this manner. The timer will function and the DVD will record normally.

I have no clue why my unit suddenly forgot how to power up on its own in order to record to DVD. If anyone has an answer for that one please post!
