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.
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.
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
