Recording to DVD recorder

Can I copy a previously recorded program from my DirectTV DVR to my LG RC199H DVD recorder?

    Recorder will not finalize DVD-R media &.during finalization a fatal error stated that it could not complete the task, but you can use a rewritable disk DVD-RW and it will record without a problem. In order to play it on another dvd player you must finalize it. If you want to reuse the disk you can unfinalize it and reuse it to record over. Another word of advice I have called LG electronics and they are sending me a disk to upgrade my RC199H recorder to help with the problem of fatal errors and disks not recignized. I hope it helps.4/3/2009

I know you can copy to the VCR. but do not know if digital recording has any form of copyright protection. You can try to copy by connecting the outputs of the DVD TV to the inputs of the DVD player recorder.

I'm trying to copy a tv show from my DVR and the recorder keeps saying Recording Error This program is not recordable in +vr mode. What is +vr mode?


Recording mode is set wrong, change it and try again unless there is an anti-copy signal on recording which some money hungry cable companies do to screw with customers.

When utilizing the DVD player to record from my cable's DVR, there's a response that says the episode or movie is copy-protected and canot be recorded. my previous DVD recorder copied every program from my...


The new recorder comes with security systems in it - when it encounters programs that have a "Do not Copy" signal on them it will refuse to work. This is how it's designed to work, there's nothing you can do to change that. BTW , even if you could do that it would have been illegal - recording a copy-protected program is considered by the lawyers of the channel in question as piracy .
The older one didn't do that because it didn't had the security system.

My DVD recorder LG RH1858 isn't recording properly. It shows the message "record blocking sidnal are detected". Please inform.


Unfortunately, your recorder is picking up a signal in the broadcast that copy-protects the show. The recorder is programmed to forbid copying of protected material. Depending on the source of the copy-protection, you may be able to block out the copy protection signal with a hardware filter. One example of these would be the Sima CT-2 that is placed between the S-out of the receiver and the S-in of the recorder.

I hope this helps.

(One common sources with this issue: a DVR that passes on the copy protection to an attached DVD recorder. Particularly some of the new Satellite/Cable receivers with built-in DVRs. The non-DVR models of the products usually filter out the copy-protection.)

Motorola VIP1216 DVR and Sony VRD-MC5 Connections for Recording?


I have the same problem currently. I have successfully recorded to the Sony CM5 in the past from my DVR, but no longer can. I have Comcast and wonder if they have changed the DVR firmware and blocked output. Also some broadcasts have something in the signal to stop recording. I got half of my program done, and can't record the rest on DVD. I will try to DVR local news, then record to the Sony, to see if it's a signal issue or something with the Sony. I haven't tried to record from a VCR.
