Re: No Manual for drc8030n need userguide to set codes...
I have the users manual in PDF format. I sell this unit online and I could not get the manual online by googling it, so I had to scan it page by page. Give me your email address and I will email you the manual :)

George- I do exactly what you are trying to do. I take the outputs from my cable box (3 cables: comp video, left audio, right audio and plug them into the 8030 respective input sockets (input 1 on the back). Then I have the output video cable going to the TV. I connect the 2 audio outputs on the recorder to my stereo input for both audio channels so that the audio comes out the stereo system speakers. I use the AUX input to the stereo system for this. If you are using the RF from the source, then I think the same output from the recorder setup should work for cabling. Make sure the 8030 has all the right inputs/outputs selected in the main menu setups. I hope this helps. Jacques
1. Go to the main manu. 2. Open the Tray. 3. Press OK on setup. 4. Hightlight disk options 5. Press 8 2 1 3 x where x is the region you wish to use. Use 9 for all regions. If you typed 8 2 1 3 9 it will quickly say region 9 on the display.
To format the HD in the DRC8030N, do the following. Power off the unit (so you only get the clock on the LCD) and then press and hold the PLAY and OPEN/CLOSE buttons for about 5-6 seconds or until you get the FORMATING word in the LCD. It will do this for about 5 seconds and voila, you are back in business. Keep in mind that by doing the following you will loose all your saved info like saved titles and such. So if you have a saved TV show that you really do not want to erase, then record it to a DVD Disk first. I hope this helps
No; just follow along when you get notice from this website. I found a link to http://www.rcaaudiovideo.com/en-US/Support.html in the very extensive discussion at http://www.avsforum.com/avs-vb/showthread.php?t=767130&page=4 ...which led to what you should ask for help by: http://support.rcaaudiovideo.com/ (actually, make a trouble ticket at http://voxrightnow.custhelp.com/cgi-bin/voxrightnow.cfg/php/enduser/std_adp.php?p_faqid=896 ) ...which says http://support.rcaaudiovideo.com/manual.aspx?product=86 there is no manual. In brief, you can go to AudioVox to post manuals already, or to Wal~Mart (who sold them) for help...but I'd ask at that forum up at the first link and at the AudioVox ticket system.
Yeah, it was hard to find. RCA's kind of a deprecated brand identity since JVC bought their remains...then sold some to AudioVox.
Maybe our Google-fu just needs some work, but that's all I see around.
This is due to the DVD-RW drive that is in the unit. This is the first to fail and RCA seems to have gone with the lowest bidder on this model. The DVD-RW drive will need to be replaced. If you used the DVR to watch and burn DVDs then you will need to replace it with any computer DVD-RW but you may need to re-drill some holes to have the replacement drive fit exactly aligned with the DVD door. If you only want to use this DVR for the internal hard drive recording and TV viewing, then any CD or DVD computer drive will do, just simply connect the replacement drive and leave it in the case (you wont have access to the DVD or CD drive under this option). If you do replace the drive, make sure you match up the jumper on the back so that it will be in the same position as in the original DVD drive ( the Master setting). I hope I did not scare you with all this information, but unfortunately, the dreaded HELLO issue with the DRC8030N has no easy fix.
These units have flaky TV tuners. Try connecting the coax cable (the one with the cable television signal or antena) to the back of your TV first and from there take the output to the input of the DVR. By doing this, you will beusing your TVs TV tuner vs the DVR's flaky one.
