This means the material you are trying to record is copywrite protected and can't be recorded. This can come from other DVD's or even certain brodcast programs are copywrited and therfore can't be recorded. I Have heard there ia abox you can hook to the DVD so it will remove thes copywrites but I don't know if they are still for sale. I hear someone tell me that he got his at Best Buy but that has been a few years back. If you have a computer and can go online, there is a program called DVD Fab decrypter that can remove the copywrites to most DVD's and you can make a copy on your computer to watch in your DVD. Just look up the DVD Fab Decrypter and check out their site. There is a cost for this program but I thought it was well worth it, I have made personal copies of many movies using this prgram.

I am trying to copy a VHS to DVD from a VHS player. I have a Sony VRD-MC6 multi-function DVD Recorder. I am using the A/V cable and have verified that they are correctly placed. The Sony player will...


Is it possible the VHS you're trying to copy is copy-protected? Apparently, the MC6 displays "waiting for signal" when you're attempting to copy a copy-protected (commercial) video. I had success converting my own homemade VHS tapes. I just bought my MC6, and thought I'd pass along some tips I got from others: You know you're recording when a red ring around the large Record button lights up and it actually says "recording" on screen, and adjust HQ to SP to get 2-plus hours of video on the DVD.

In February, someone asked: "When


What are the tapes that you are trying to copy? are there genuine copies of films? YES THEY COULD BE COPY PROTECTED how they do that? simple they record the tape with the most minimum srength of signal, if you try to copy it you lose signal strength trough the copy process than the video looks a bit scrambled/discoloured and the sound is bad, if it's the case you could buy a video signal booster (if still available in stores) than you have to copy with a VCR that is separated from the DVD recorder so that you can install the booster from the output of the VCR to the input of the DVD recorder.

Hope it helps!

Have magnavox dvd recorder record direcTV DVR programs w/ hdtv


I am unfamiliar with this unit.
If you have scart connecters on both, connect av2 on the tv to av in on the recorder. set the recorder to record from av source.
You should now record a program, I think the static is the fact that composite is out from the dvd only, not an input, and in on the tv, not an output.

How to eliminate error screen:"your tv does not allow display of this program through the dvi input source. please chose another tv input source."


"cable box to tv is hdmi cable"

Everything I've read on the web says cable box to tv connection must also use component (rgb) cables. The error is coming from the cable box (STB). All the Scientific Atlanta (SA) cable boxes seem have this Digital Rights Management (DRM) bug and the only way to be totally rid of the error is to replace the digital connection from box to the TV with an analog connection.

NOT ABLE TO RECORD


Key thing to remember when recording anything is the following: 1.  Color to color on the back of the machine      Video -yellow      Sound - White and red 2. Make sure your source is output and the recorder is input. 3. Be sure that it is original content that you are trying to record ie make sure you are recording from a VHS that is "Kids do Beauty and the Beast for 5th grade play" and not "Disney Beauty and The Beast"

I cannot record copy-protected tapes to DVD on my RCA DVD recorde


Here is a link to the installation guide for your Pioneer model - refer to every bit of information on p. 29 (which will refer you to some pertinent info in Ch.1): http://www.pioneerelectronics.com/pio/pe/images/portal/cit_11221/98391312Installation%20Guide%20DVR-810HS.pdf

If it will not permit you to do the recording:
You have to use a backdoor method. Inspect your TV and see if it has a yellow jack labelled video OUT or monitor OUT - many TV's do not have them. If you are one of the lucky ones that has a video OUT:
1) Connect a VCR to one of the televisions inputs.
2) Connect a red, white and yellow cable from the video and audio OUTs of your TV to either INPUT 1 or 2 on your DVD recorder
3) Make sure that your DVD recorder is set to either INPUT 1 or INPUT 2 - reading the manual for that model is driving me up the wall - I would change the channel on the DVD Recorder (not the TV) to 2 and use the channel down button until it says Input 1 or Input 2 - whichever the appropriate choice is
4) Play the VHS tape and make sure that you can see the picture on your television screen.
5) Press Record on the DVD recorder

Good luck- I would go insane trying to use that Pioneer - it is user-friendly, but not techie-friendly.

Recording problem with LG RH266 Recorder.


If the DVD is copy right protected then it won't record. By this I mean, you can't simply rent a DVD at Blockbuster and transfer it to the Hard Drive (use a computer to do this instead). Try using a DVD that is not protected, like a home video or a cd with MP3s

Operating unit


This unit will not record certain types of TV and no copy-protected VHS and it doesn't tell you when you have those situations--and it doesn't come up with an error message that tells you what you are doing wrong. First step is to be sure that your source material is not copy-protected.

EXT means external input,i.e.from an outside or alternate source.

That source could be a DVD / VCR , cable box, video game,etc.

2) New dvd/vcr recorders allow A / V inputs only,usually obtained

from a source box ( cable or satellite ) They do not have coax cable input/output,also known as RF in/RF out.

3)The dvd/vcr manufacturer expects the consumer to upgrade equipment periodically.If your TV or A/V receiver ( surround sound) has a video monitor output,problem solved!

 

Hope I helped you ......T.
