Hello. Thanks for choosing Fixya!

Try unpluging your DVR wall outlet for 60 seconds then plug back in and turn the power back on.



1.To restart digital cable box,simultaneously press VOL+, VOL- and
INFO on front of digital cable box and hold until digital cable box shuts down.
2) Release buttons and digital cable box will automatically reset.
3) When the front panel displays the time, the restart is complete.
4) Press CBL on remote to turn digital cable box on.
5) Menu screens will need to be reloaded (may take up to 20 seconds).

Hi,

This is a common problem with thus series.You should try to reset the unit. To reset first switch off the unit then Disconnect the unit from power supply/batteries then disconnect any other units connected to it, after that Leave it disconnected for 30 minutes. It should reset itself then start again.

If that doesn't help then the reason could be that your hard drive is corrupt.. hard drive looses capacity with time .. in some cases some part of it become unreadable which is most likely whay happening in your case.

You will need a new hard drive, you can find one cheap online.

Let me know,if needed further assistance.

Hope i helped you.

Thanks for using ' Fixya ' and have a nice day!!

Dvr is programmed but at times "chooses" not to record show and other times it does record


Be sure that a DVR timer is set to fire, instead of an auto tune. Also if it is a series then make sure you select new episodes, your dvr will not recor a program if it has already recorded the same program once, ( re run) you can also check your scehdule in your dvr to check if timer has been deleted or modified.

Motorola VIP1216 DVR and Sony VRD-MC5 Connections for Recording?


I have the same problem currently. I have successfully recorded to the Sony CM5 in the past from my DVR, but no longer can. I have Comcast and wonder if they have changed the DVR firmware and blocked output. Also some broadcasts have something in the signal to stop recording. I got half of my program done, and can't record the rest on DVD. I will try to DVR local news, then record to the Sony, to see if it's a signal issue or something with the Sony. I haven't tried to record from a VCR.

Record DVDs frrom Cable box DVR


Buy a recorder that records both +/-R and double layer disks.
I haven't seen a Comcast dvr but you should connect it to the svideo out port of the dvr to the svideo in of the recorder and the audio out to the audio in. If the Comcast doesn't have svideo use the video ports instead

A lot of the functionality you are wanting is tied to the remote that you have misplaced. You can go to the Pioneer support site and order a new remote, though it is like $30.

As for wiring options to record, it depends on the inputs and outputs that are available on your television.
- Ideally, connect VCR to TV input "1", connect DVR output to TV input "2", and conect TV output to DVR. This will help you avoid any copy protection issues you run into, but not all TV sets have both audio and video output.
- If you don't have TV outputs, connect VCR out to DVR in, and then DVR out to TV in. This will definitely work, but you will have to have the DVR turned on to watch a VCR tape.
