Question about RCA RTD155 System

Direct tv hdbox & Plasma TV & DVD SSound system & DVD recorder

I have a Samsung Series 450 Plasma TV. Direct TV HD receiver, A Samsung HT-TZ512 DVD surround sound system, A Panasonic DMR-ES30v DVD recorder. I can record shows off the TV, Both systems will play DVD's on the TV. If I play a non copyrighted DVD in the Samsung Surround sound system, it will play on the TV, the Panasonic will not record it. Anyway to hook this up correct? I could do it before when I did not have HDTV. I think It all went through the DVD recorder, but now that I have a HDTV receiver I cannot run the cable into the DVD recorder. The HDTV Receiver box has 2 Cables, the DVD recorder only has 1

Need to make sure you have the red,white,and yellow rca connection cables ran from the samsung dvd player to the red,white,yellow input on the back of the dvd recorder. Once you do that make sure you put your dvd recorder on line 1 input. If you look closely on the back of your recorder it should say line 1 input. If your recorder isn't on that input you can put the recorder on line 1 input by using dvd recorder remote and pushing the input button. Make sure you don't push the tv input button the dvd recorder remote there should be a seperate input button or a way to toggle the inputs on the recorder. Once you verify all that turn on your tv and go to the input on your tv that you watch the dvd recorder on and you should see what your recording on the tv.

    How are you hooking up the hd sat box to your panasonic dvd recorder? Also why don't you hook up your dvd recorder with component video instead of a/v cables cause you said your tv is on a/v1 which most of the time that is red,white,yellow plugs on the tv? Component would give you progressive scan which is double the resolution. One other possiblility is that your samsung dvd player might be blocking the red,white,yellow jacks if it is connected to the tv hdmi. Some players will do that because the hdmi connection is copy right protected even though the disc isn't so you might also want to try to run component from the samsung dvd to tv and then red,white,yellow to the dvd recorder. I have had personal experiences with that issue. You also said you can record off tv which makes since because the directv hd boxes do not block the other a/v outputs when connected to the tv hdmi. Anyway this is some ideas and if you are recording off sat try to plug dvd player into same plugs sat worked on as well just to make sure your all your inputs are working on dvd recorder. Good luck!

Dmr-ES30V Dvd plays pre record movies fine but I


Try a different brand of blank dvd+r or -r. you will find that your dvd machine is fussy on what discs it plays. More exspensive dvd players are fussy with what dvd discs you put in, as cheaper dvd players would virtualy play most types of dvds.

The Directv codes for my Samsung HT-TZ512 surround sound/dvd player don't work. How can I program my Directv remote to control the dvd player? The codes I've tried are 20490, 20573, 20820, 21075 and 20899....


sometimes directv remotes do not work with surround dvd players. Try doing an automatic code search . Most of the time it will only allow you to power the dvd player and operate the volume.

Hi and welcome to FixYa,

My compliments to the foresight of your father. Your described concern is not caused by a "lock". It is indicative that the recording session was not 100% completed. Rather than 'crack', what is required is the final step in the recording. All the DVDs must be "finalized" in the same machine that recorded the movies, the Panasonic DVD Recorder DMR-ES30V. The finalize option would be in the MENU/Settings and must be enabled. Finalization per disc would take some time.

Good luck and thank you for using FixYa.

PANASONIC DVD RECORDER


Appreciate the direct "Ask Me".

Since both are record capable:
  • hook the Video and Left/Right Audio OUT of the DMR-ES30V to one of the composite/matching INPUT of the DMR-EX88;
  • use the DMR-ES30V as a player and the DMR-EX88;
  • to be able to watch and monitor the output, temporarily hook up the OUTPUT of the DMR-EX88 to the INPUT of the TV.

Need diagram to connect Motorola DVR, Panasonic DMR-E recorder, A/V Receiver, and HDTV


Your not going to be able to connect in series (not sure if thats your goal) since your limited by the type of connections you can use. Your receiver is going to have to be switched depeneding on what source you want to listen too. DVR, DVD, etc. HDMI is going to important for your TV connection. Radio Shack has cheap HDMI cables.
So... connect HDMI from DVR to HDTV this will give you sound and picture to TV. Connect DVR optical or coaxial ( RCA if you dont care about surround) to Receiver to give you DVR sound thru Receiver input.
Connect DVD to receiver via optical/coaxial/rca for DVD sound thru receiver (again RCA is not recommended for surround).
Connect Component video to HDTV(or HDMI if TV has second HDMI input) to give you video from DVD.
Connect Yellow video or S-video from DVR to DVD recorder input to allow recording from DVR. Also connect red/white audio to (same) DVD input.
That should cover it.

CAN ONLY GET THE SURROUND SOUND TO WORK WITH DVD'S NOT WITH NORMAL TV OR SKY?? WHY??


You should have a AUDIO menu in which you can simulate true surround sound. This should be in your owners manual. Your DVD is recorded in dolby surround sound that's why on your set it will be reproduced as recorded. I hope Samsung is using a ATSC tuner in that model?
