Question about Polaroid DRM-2001G DVD Recorder/HDD Recorder

1 Answer

Recording Late I have multiple weekly timed recordings set up - yet, it never fails they never start recording on-time. For example - it is supposed to start recording at 6pm and it might start instead at 6:09 or 6:55 - then it still records for the scheduled amount of time (so, records for 1 hour even if it starts 45 min late). It is never the same amount of time that it starts late, it NEVER starts actually on-time and it does this whether the HDD is totally empty or not. Do you have any suggestions?!? . . .

Check your automatic clock setting. If it is on automatic, set it to manual, and set the date and time on the recorder. It may be picking up an unreliable time setting from a station that is not too accurate.

There are multiple ways to do this:

My dish network dvr stops recording some programs, i think its just shows that are to be recorded on tv 1. It will record only like 10 minutes or less and stops recording


jeff_rhondac,

Check the timers you have setup for the programs that are suppose to record. Make sure the timers are setup correctly. Do you have any timers setup to begin early and end late? A new software update rolled about 2 weeks ago. Did you start experiencing the problem after that? Also, how much available time is available on the HD? Please let me know so I can further assist you.

Thanks,

My vcr wont record when programed but will if you just push the record button


When you set the timer see if PDC appears. If it does switch it to off and try setting a record. PDC sometimes doesn't work. And the recorder will sit there waiting for the signal to tell it when to start recording. Which never comes! However you will have to set the time to adjust for it not recording late running TV shows. For example a show to start at 8pm and finish at 8.30pm, will need to be set at 7.59 till 8.35pm. Or you could miss the start or end! Wheras PDC would get it all even if it started at 8.05!

Lost manual. Cannot get HR A591U JVC VCR program to record a future cable tv program. Seems I have tried everything but it does not record as I set up. It will record an existing show by pressing...


Timer Recording JVC VCR HR A591U
Timer recording can be programmed on-screen with
the remote control. The built-in timer allows automatic
unattended recording of up to 8 programs within 1
month.

EXAMPLE: Program a timer recording for the 26th day,
channel 125 (CATV), 11:00 - 11:30 PM on timer program
number 1 (Tape speed: EP).

When a TV is connected with an audio/video cable, turn the
TV and this VCR on and select the video input mode on the
TV.


• After timer recording is completed, the VCR turns off
automatically.
• You can program the timer recording while a regular
recording is in progress; the menu screens will not be
recorded.
• The timer recording will start at 20 seconds before the time
you predetermined.

Press MENU on the Remote.
Check the “TIMER REC SET”
option is selected, then press
ENTER.

Press SET –/+ to select one of
the program lines, then press
ENTER.

Press SET –/+ to select the
date, then press ENTER.

Set the start time, end time,
channel and tape speed as in
step 3.
NOTE: To record from external
source, press SET –/+
and set the channel to
"L". "L" will appear next
to CH 125 (or 69).

To enter other programs,
repeat step 2 through 4. Or,
press MENU twice to return
to the normal screen.

Press TIMER on the Remote.
The power will go off, the
TIMER REC indicator ( ) will
light and the VCR stands by
for recording.

To cancel a program:

Press the SET –/+ to select the
“TIMER REC SET” option in the
MENU. Then press SET –/+ to
select the unnecessary program,
and press CANCEL to cancel the
program.

My LG LRH-880 HDD/DVD recorder sometimes stops recording by itself, before the end of the programming and even if there is enough disk space left.


Somehow, my HDD/DVD recorder recorded correctly 2 times last night, even if I did not do anything specific to fix. I will keep an eye on new occurences of this problem, but it appears at the moment that the issue disappeared by itself.

Timer programming problem


Check to see that you have not changed the default choice for input on power up of the box the "timeshift default device". If you have it set to front or rear CVBS or S-video input, it may ignore the channel choice you make when setting up the recording.

Philips DVDR3450H Recorder does not record all of timed programs


When setting the record timer make sure that PDC / VPS is switched OFF.

PDC - Programme Delivery Control / VPS - Video Programming System is designed to allow for late starting or running programmes. Not all channels support PDC/VPS, so the recorder may be waiting for a PDC/VPS signal which isn't there.

Set a timed recording


Do you have your operation manual? It will tell you how to set up a timed recording. Recording options are set via the remote. Look for an option as "Scheduled recording" or similiar. Date, start & end time, channel, recording speed are all set. If you are missing your manual do a google search with your model number. A quick look at the Samsung website was not fruitful.
