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 have the same probelm. When i try one-touch recording it just starts to record. There is no table or action for setting a period to record.
According to the manual I should be able to set the recording time length in steps.

Re: 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.

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.)
Try removing the top cover & have a look to see what happens when you put the tape in & press play/rewind etc. Is the take up spool (right hand spool) turning properly or is there slack tape not being taken into the cassette? Are the heads spinning ? I think your problem is more likely to do with the tape not travelling smoothly around the tape path. Possibly the clutch gears need cleaned or the soft brakes may not be dis-engaging properly.
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.
Connect with RCA cable to RCA jacks\plugs::
output [player] audio to INPUT [recorder] OUTPUT [player] Video to INPUT [recorder]
Place blank tape in RECORDER, Tape that you want to record from into PLAYER.Press Record [recorder machine], wait one second, press PAUSE.( thats to give record tape "breathing" space.) Set up your player tape to start playing. When you know what you want to record, press PAUSE again to begining recording. Press PAUSE after the recorded section to install 2nd tape, etc. etc.
NOTE:: some VCRs use PAUSE 2nd time to release and continue recording, while some machines you must press RECORD button again to release PAUSE. you must expirement before begining your project.
DV-PC Recorder is a Windows XP only application that enables you to record images and sound on the tape in the camcorder and on the computer's hard disk by connecting a camcorder equipped with the DV CONTROL function to a computer using an IEEE1394 (DV) cable.
DV-PC Recorder has the following features.
1. You can record movies simultaneously on your computer's hard disk and on the tape by pressing the start/stop button on the camcorder.
2. It enables long, continuous recordings, which you cannot achieve with the tape alone.
(Approximately four and a half hour's worth of recording will fit on a 60GB hard disk.)
3. You can start editing the movies on the computer right after recording, as the images and sound are saved on the computer's hard disk.
(Optional editing software is required to edit movies)
4. You can record movies on the tape in the camcorder and on the computer's hard disk by controlling the DV-PC Recorder from your computer.
