HELP-where is the One Touch Recorder button

I cannot find a quick way to tape for say an hour like a OTR button, all I can find is the record button, no good to stop if I am not here or go through the long process of setting up.

I am frustrated with this model, I hate the fact that it won't record with a disc in it......I know, I know it will stop overwriting BUT very annnnoyyying.

Hope you can help with one of my frustrations of this OTR.

Many thanks for any help Kind regards J

    I cannot set a time period for quick recording. When I press the record button it just starts recording until I stop it.

The One Touch Recording only works from pressing the RECORD button on the main unit NOT on the remote control.
Hope this helps.

I'm having trouble changing the record speed on my dvd/vcr recorder. I would like to change sp to lp or slp. I would like to record 6 hours on a 6 hour tape instead of just recording 2 can anyone help


We perhaps could have been of use, when you had told us in the first place what brand and model your recorder is. For the VCR part, some recorders do have a setting in the menu, to switch to LP (long play) but not all records have this option. So when the manual does not offer this option, your recorder can't.
When you post the details of your recorder, perhaps I manage to find the specs and will be able to tell you what your recorder can and can't. Give me a day, because it is bed time for me.

This morning while trying to copy from vhs to dvd I kept getting an on screen message OTR Pause....record. What is OTR as the tape did not copy this is model DRC832ON


OTR is one-touch recording on most of my VCR/DVD burners where you set the length of time to record from the tv. In my manual it is the Express Record feature. Press the REC button several times to advance the record time by 30 minutes. In your case it might refer to On Timed Record.

Use the COPY button on the front of the unit when the tape you want to record is in the VCR and a blank DVD is in the DVD tray. If you have the A/B Edits set, only the A/B editted sections will copy. (Copy protected tapes and DVDs can't be copied.) (Or the timed transfer described below)

Copying DVDs to VCR tapes can be done in a timed record mode. You can either use Menu > Disc > Copy Disc then press OK or Menu > Timers > Set Transfer and press OK. Then press Info to name the timed event followed by Done and OK, if desired. Press OK to highlight Copy From/To and make sure to select the correct source and destination and press OK. Next set the day and time that you want the transfer to take place (a couple of steps, press OK between them and when done). Then adjust the quality if needed and press OK. Finally highlight Keep Timer and press OK again. Make sure the correct tape and DVD are in place for the timed event.

Depending on what you set the unit for, I'd look for signs of power failures (which mess up most timed record functions). Then I'd double-check the time you set it to transfer and the A/B edits function. (A/B edits lets you grab small clips from an Indexed tape. Either index the tape by playing it and pressing the Insert A/B edit button (on the VCR/DVD, possibly on the remote) or delete A/B edits.)

I hope this helps.

EVERYTHING YOU NEED IS IN MY LETTER BELOW.


1. On your remote, find the record mode button; it is near the bottom on the left side. This button sets
the recording speed for the DVR. Faster recording speeds provide higher quality recordings.
2. Look at the display on the front of the machine: it should say XP ( records 1 hour on the disc,)
SP ( 2 hours, ) LP ( 4 hours, ) or EP ( 6 hours. ) You can also set it to record 8 hours on a disc,
but the quality of the recording will be poor.
3 Press the record mode button until the screen displays the recording speed that you want.
4 Note: if the powers fails or the Machine is unplugged, the machine will automatically reset itself to
SP mode.

How to switch the tape speed on Go Video dvd/tape.


  1. Press SETUP,
  2. Toggle with the left/right arrow to the RECORDING OPTIONS (icon has a dot and the letters REC below it in the icon menus at the top of the set up screen.)
  3. While RECORDING options is selected, press the DOWN arrow to select VCR RECORD QUALITY.
  4. Press ENTER to go to the submenu.
  5. Use the ARROW UP/DOWN buttons to select the desired quality.
  6. Press ENTER to confirm selection.
  7. Press SETUP to exit the menu.
This is the same procedure for selecting the quality for the DVR recording speeds.

VHS speeds are:
SLP is 3x the recording time of SP.

DVR recording options are:

HQ=1 hour
SP=2 hours
EP=4 hours
SLP=6 hours

per disc.

My Thomson freeview recorder box wont let me record anything as it saya that my drive is full but it freezes when i try to delete some of my recordings


Marriott, You will find that it is only one recording that is causing this. This also happens to my box as well when we tape emerdale on a Monday. look through what has been taped and find out if the minutes used is correct for that programme. if not then you need to do the following in very quick procession.

Press the delete button and confirm as quickly as possible when you scan down the the programme that has not recorded correctly.

Hope this helps

HELP-where is the One Touch Recorder button


I don't know this exact model, but other Panasonic models have similar functions. Usually the OTR option allows you to start recording easily and is not designed to have any other options associated with it. To set timed recordings, there is a sequence of steps required. The OTR is for recording when you are present. I will confirm this with Panasonic and update this.

SCREEN SAYS "SAFE" ?DO IDO TO GET RID OF IT???????/


To remove "SAFE" from the front display, using the remote control, press and hold "INFO" for 5 seconds until it disappears. This was probably acitivated while you stopped a recording which can trigger it, of you may have activated "Safe" by pressing the INFO button several times. This is to prevent access of the recorder by locking all controls. This is for the DVD Recorder/VCR combo VR320 and the 1st generation DvD Recorder DVR-130.

Even though this was a product I regret purchasing, it isn't as bad a people make it out to be. It works best with DV cable recording from 1 Hour Mini-DV tape camcorders to 1 Hour XP Record DVD mode. It is probable one of the best. Only issue I have is when you try playing a finalized DVD-R disc in another DVD player, there is a chance it might not work because of the Highest quality 1 Hour record mode. Standard is 2 Hour SP. You will have to burn an exact copy using DVD copy software on your computer to DVD-R. This will fix the problem.
