Only if it has a built in digital tuner, and, if it does, the digital is only SD (standard definition). If not, you would still need the set top box to receive HD (you could connect the box to the DVD recorder (for HD and/or SD) as required if you wish to record channels). Most set top boxes have both SD and HD channels in their tuners, so it would most likely be the next best option if your DVD recorder does not have a built in digital tuner. You can check your DVD recorder's on screen setup menu to see if digital services exist within it. Either way, keep your set top box just in case.

Hello michaelk960,
First you need to know that the machines problem is from the control panel of the DVD. Because it just simply cannot go off without the power off butoon is being pressed from either the remote ir the control panel.
If you try to control the DVD using the remote also and it simply would not respond and still go off. Then the problem is confirmed as two buttons cannot work on the DVD at the same time. The power button is pressing itself on the control panel that is why it goes off after about 10secs. If the player is to write BYE on the display panel, it means the power off button have been pressed, if not, by you, then it is by an error on the control panels board, which is making no other button function.
The solution is for you to have the control board replaced. To replace the control panel board. Simply unplug the player, then you unscrew the screws that are around the player, then you slide open the back cover of the player, then you unscrew the front control panel from the inside of the player, then you disconnect the flexi ribbon that connects the control panels board to the main board. Then you replace the board with another board and reverse the process to reassemble the player back together.
That way, the control off opening, closing and other function keys on the player and remote will be able to work once again.
Would be glad to know if the information helped. All the best michaelk960. Elect_Comp

If you see the display lie that "Non reocrdable disc" These are the reasons.

[1] The unit cannot record on the disc you inserted. Insert a DVD-RAM or unfinalised
DVD-R, DVD-RW (DVD-Video format), +R or +RW.
[2] You inserted an unformatted DVD-RAM, DVD-RW, +R, +R DL or +RW

[3] You cannot directly record to a DVD-R DL and +R DL disc on this unit. Record to the
HDD and then copy to the disc
Please go to the user manaul page [11] & [55] for details. All of it cannote be typed here as the format doesn't allow me to do so. If you haven't its user manaul with you now, send your email address to me by Fixya. I'll send a copy of it to you by return mail. OK.

If you do not have your original instruction manual, you can download one FREE from the following link

Refer to the page I suggested to be doubly sure. Hope this helps a bit. Keep the document for future use as required.

It might not help, but give it a try, it won't damage anything.

You could try using a DVD lens cleaner (wet or dry type, whichever is available; but it MUST be the manufacturer's recommended DVD lens cleaner (or suitable equivalent) - do not use CD/DVD generic cleaners, they might be cheaper, but these do not work and may damage the unit).

If after following the directions on the pack, the recorder still shows U11, then the drive is probably on its way out. Considering the cost of a new DVD-RAM drive is around $300 or so, plus labour (if applicable), it may not be economical in the long term.

Nevertheless, try cleaning the laser lens (either with the DVD cleaner discs), see how you go. I usually try to avoid opening drive units up in cases of cleaning, however, I have found short bursts of compressed air through the drive from front to back usually solves most dust-related problems.
