I have a Magnavox MRV700VR. I can record on a DVDR, but when I try to record on a DVDRW it tells me "disc error". Why?


It will be either that you have not formatted the disc or that you are using the wrong type of disc. You will need a DVD+RW on a + machine or DVD-RW on a - machine. Most recorders will playback the other type but not record on it.

I can record a show manualy while its on & all is fine. When I try to schedule a recrding it records but I get a blank screen upon playback. What am I doing wrong? I have directv.


Unless the tv and dvdr are paired I.E. both the same make and compatible models, then you will have problems. try setting the timer on the dvdr for a programme but set the channel to av(scart connecter used) and set the timer on the tv to the same.
Please note that AV2 on the tv usually sends the programme to the dvdr.

I cant record. trying to record from the tv to blank video tape


With the assumption that this is a DVD recorder not just a player, and all connections are correct, two things need to be in place.
1. Source: the unit needs to have a cable tuner so you can receive a channel to record or an external input (look like stereo plugs) for video in and audio in so you can use a cable box for tuning a channel
2: Format: these units will need a DVD -R or DVD +R format blank to use. Some units can use both.

If this unit is a combo (DVDR and VCR in one box) then the source should be available to both for recording and selecting the appropriate channel should work. (Note if using the cable box then the recorder channel probably should be on 3 and set your cable box to the channel you want to record
Good luck.

I have a dvdr3380 lately when i put in disc it says disc unrecord


Test the created DVD with TMPGEnc v4.0 Xpress here is the free trial link It has a read source function that will fail if the DVDR has not been authored correctly.

If this works and scans in the full DVDR then I suggested that you buy a branded DVD+R like Philips who created the format, if this still fails I think you DVDR 3380 will need a service.
