I'd guess you are using cable TV-some cable companies put their own copyguard on the cable signal, Comcast, in my area does this. The DVD sees the 'do not copy signal' and won't do it.
Try recording directly to DVD without using the HDD drive. If you get a playable disk, I doubt it is your machine. If you don't get a playable disk, that plays in THAT machine-it is the machine..

Hd recording


If the digital tuner can pick up the HD channels, then I don't see why it can't record them. However some TV channels have blocking on them to prevent recording. If it can't record a channel it will say so with a message, generally.

Check if your DVD drive in your computor is the same type as your recorder. IE A DVD + or DVD -.
Some types of drive will not play the others. You might need to upgade your drive in your computer to one that will play nearly all formats.

You need to read page 37 "Dubbing a title"

Select the title you want to record and select the Dubbing option.

Sansui dvd player wont play and dvd's... shows up as incorrect disc c104 error


Try cleaning the optics with one of those DVD cleaners.
When that probably doesn't work, you can hand clean the optics if you can figure out how to get at them. (easy on some, hard on others) If that doesn't work, it is prbably not worth going any farther
