The iLo DVDR05 is essentially the same machine as the Cyberhome 1600 and you can download a manual for the Cyberhome 1600 at: http://www.retrevo.com/support/CyberHome-DVR-1600MU1-DVD-Players-manual/id/534ci861/t/2/

Try the red/yellow/white cables. select that SOURCE. first select your recording length. I usually put mine on 3-4 hours and try to keep it from running to the end or you have problems. I use Rewriteable dvds, if you use reg discs be sure to finalize the disc so it will work in other players. I read if you are copying macrovision vhs to use the antenna input and it will copy it with that input. Just tune it to channel 4 or whatever. Forget trying to set the timer to record from tv. I never have success with that.
Depends on your specific problems. I have had one of each models MU1, MU2 and ZU. Each one is different. See label on bottom. The best one is MU1 MU2 seemed to get a blur or moving effect upon playback. Zu is better for taping live tv. I love my MU1.I had a Lite on DVD recorder that didn't last long at all. I use ONlY SONY discs or Rewriteables and do fairly well. I am trying to find a non existent universal remote for it. Why didnt' they put more buttons on the front??? Useless without a remote. If its broke, its broken. I heard the company is no longer operating so forget it.
Following the instructions on hooking up the cables gave me fits. I finally just put the instructions away and winged it. Got it that way. Bypass your Ilo tuner. Hook the Comcast Cable (outs) up to the A/V input 1 of your ILO. Hook your tv combo A/V outputs, to the ILO A/V inputs. Select the Source and choose the cable source for cable and the combo source to tape from your VHS/dvd combo. Its a pain but you have to select Source everytime you turn the Ilo back on. You could hook your Cable to the ILO but would have to turn on ILO everytime to watch tv. Two remotes is a chore but you have to use tv remote for the volume anyway so it doesn't matter. Hope this helps.

Burn your DVDs at tow positions slower than what the system and discs say. It sounds as if there is a huge amount of error being introduced during the write process. Unfortunately, the old discs can only be recovered with an external program like Zero Assumption Recovery or the like....accordianman

2. press "setup"
