Humax DRT400 Tivo won't burn content to DVDs

This machine burned plenty of things in the first two years, but now I keep getting error messages that say "saving failed due to an internal error". I've tried rebooting a dozen times, using different DVDs, etc but still it doesn't work.

Does anyone have any experience with this error message?

My solution is going to require entering the unit, so you may want a qualified service tech to perform the job, but i would check the connection between the burner and the board.

    Any chance I could get more detail about how to enter the unit and where to find this connection between the burner and the board?

I can't figure out how to record two shows at once on my DRT400 Humax Series 2 Tivo.


You can't. The unit doesn't have dual tuners, so your stuck with just recording one show at a time. Sorry.

Humax digital recorder picture freeze every 10 minutes


Humax are having problems and are starting to send out software upgrades (night-time updates) - seems to be related to the new formats on the MUXs for the digital switch-over. Our 9150T hasn't been fixed yet but due any day (I hope)

Can I use HUMAX like a 24 hour surveillance recorder?


For the TIVO series 2: hit the TIVO button, then go to messages and settings, then to to video input, then go to change input, then pick which input your camera uses. It will ask you if you can see the picture. If you can click the answer and then hit the select button. Then hit the TIVO button again then hit watch live tv. 
The Humex should work very similar.

No picture on Humax DRT400


Try taking the cover off and taking an air compressor and blowing it out real good. I have the exact same one and I had the exact same problem and after i blew it out it worked like new.

Recorder just keeps recycling the boot-up process


It's most likely your hard drive. It has to be functional for the DVD portion to work. It can be replaced by a preconfigured kit or buy a new drive and do it yourself. You can also send it to places like CCS in Indiana that will thoroughly test out the unit and give you options.

Humax Tivo will not record to DVD


After the update to 1.15 I had to delete EVERY recording on the unit. After that, any new recordings would burn just fine. However, some have found that same failure even after a hard reboot (repower). Called Humax level-1 support and they suggested a replacement unit so I swapped it out. But I've since learned that TiVo "pushes" a DVD firmware patch (possible supplied by Humax) from 1.08 to 1.15 and that patch is the culprit. That patch is suppose to make the DVD burn at a higher spin rate. After talking with level-2 Humax support they heard of the problem and said "the unit is working as designed", meaning, the DVD drive manufacturer specs say the drive is capable of a faster burn rate. So now I have Humax DTR800 #2 and so-far-so-good, but TiVo hasn't pushed the patch onto the box yet!
