Could bethat your Hard Drive is full. Make sure it isn't and if it is then try erasing some programs. Also, check the User's Guide to reset the unit (usually done by pressing a combination of buttons for about 10 seconds)

Manual recording procedure


I am assuming that is what they ment.

Because a DVD Player would not be able to Recored anything at all. And he did not mention anything about there being a VCR in it or anything about a VCR in Fact.

You would have to Have a DVD Recorder to Record anything onto DVD's

Can I recored a VCR to the DVD on this machine?without a TV?


yes, but I strongly suggest you use the screen (unless the recording is a 5 - 6 hour epic) where as you record the event and go to sleep and the devices shut off once finish.

I have a hdd/dvd recorder model rh7880/rh7500 set timer recording to record onto dvd, machine switched itself on as normal but did not start to record and froze up.cannot get anything to respond either...


Recorder wasn't under warranty, so opened the unit up removed the dvd - rw disc ,which was corrupted as it turns out, put the machine back together switched it on and it worked perfectly.I have since tested it by recording both on to dvd,hdd and used the dubbing format and have had no problems.In the future I would recommend bying only top quality discs as it seems a dodgy one was responsible.

Hello! My Philips DVDR5350H/05 randomley records for 6 hours. The only way to stop this, once the recording has started, is to go into the system menu and select the option to remove the time shift...


Hello. This is not a fault. The DVDR5350H's Hard Drive (called Time Shift Buffer) begins recording (for up to six hours) as soon as the unit it switched on and only clears the 'temporary' recordings when it is switched off or you switch to 'Cam' mode on the remote control.

Like Sky+ and Freeview+, the continuous recoding enables you to save, pause and rewind live TV (this could also apply to Freeview or any source that you may have connected to the EXT1 and EXT2 SCART sockets. In other words, if you are watching TV or anything connected to the 5350 while it is switched on you can keep it without even having pressed record in the first place (pressing OK on the remote control will show you how).

It is normal for all HDD recorders with a 'pause live TV' function to record whether asked to or not.

HDD Error


Since my last post, I have rectified the problem.....

1) I opened the unit to find a seagate HDD
2) I downloaded the Seatools in dos format and burned the image on to a cd rom
3)Taking out the HDD from my recorder,I hooked it up to another pc and ran the seatools disk @ bootup.
I tried for 2 hrs to repair the bloody thing ( 160 gb!) so i gave up and tried to erase the full HDD...which worked.
4) on my laptop i navigated to Pioneers site and found my recorder along with instructions and a zip file that contained 2 files.
5)After reading the destructions erm i mean instructions ;) I put the HDD back into the recorder and followed the instructions again..

Crossing my fingers i turned the recorder back on and to my amazement i was able to have more functionality..BUT... it says my HDD name error so I ran the disk again and wallah! all worked XDDDD

Here are the links

http://www.pioneer.co.uk/uk/content/support/support/update/DVR.html check if your model is there.

I hope you fix yours XD
