Finalizes When You Eject a DVD-R


I'm going through a ton of DVD-R's on this unit. I record a program that airs nightly and because the programs are just kinescope quality anyway, I'm not worried about recording them at a high speed. So, I should be able to fit six hours worth of programming onto a disk. And I can...unless....I decide to put in a DVD of something else to watch. When I hit the "Open/Close" button, it automatically begins the finalization process. As a result, I have a bunch of DVD's that have only one or two episodes on them. How do I get it to stop doing this?

I have a Magnavox Digital Video Disc Recorder & Video Cassette Recorder , Model No. VM426MG9A. I bought the unit in August 2010. When I go to record a program, it seems OK but when it starts...


The recording set-up must have been program to record only in 5 minutes. You could play around with the remote and try to enter the record set-up. The problem with the VCR must be a worn-out belt or a dirty loading mechanism. You could try to replace the belt or clean the surface area where all the mechanism slide together or make contacts and put an small amount of recommended grease or petroleum jelly.

Just hooked up my new Magnavox DV220MW9 DVD Player ? VCR Recorder. I was able to set the time and a vcr timer program but now I can't switch the source. It now comes on as the DVD but neither the remote...


You need to release the timer to access the VCR. Press the Timer Set button on the remote or the Stop/Eject button on the recorder. Then press the VCR button.

Please note: the scheduled recording will not run as programmed unless you press the Timer Set on the remote again. (The timer locks the VCR until the scheduled ON time.) The DVD player is controlled separately and becomes the default unit.

I hope this helps.

No program information on my sony HDX 560


I had this problem. I found that when you record from the EPG it can change quite frequently. When this happenes then your recording will automatically get deleted. To sort this out I would use the Guide plus system on your box and then the problem wont occur any more

ERROR MESSAGE


Your DVD may not support the codec that you used to record with. There are many formats like DIVX, Mpeg, and Mov files. Your system must support the format that you recorded or it will not work.
