First the dvd/vcr only recognizes a few of my blank disks, but not when i record either straight from tv or vhs to disk it stops after 10 to 15 seconds of recording and tells me an error has ocured that has interrupted recording. please help!
The DRC8285N model is a great little machine, however, it will only
record to DVD+R 8x disks maximum. If you are trying to record to a 16x,
you will not be successful. See page 2 of your manual, and RCA service
confirmed it. You can use 2.4x, 4x and 8x only. That eliminates the
newer 16x format.
The material you are trying to duplicate is copy protected I had this happen w/one of the satalite companies I used they have the technology to shut down the machine and stop the recording of the protected material.

Select AV-1 or some thing in TV and plug DVD recorder Video-Audio output in AV-1 input of TV, playback any DVD and confirm its picture and sound in TV. Press Stop button of DVD recorder to stop playback. Now plug Video-Audio output of VCR in DVD recorder input and select AV Input in DVD recorder, insert VHS tape in VCR and playback it and confirm you get VHS picture and sound in TV via DVD recorder. Hookup between TV, DVD recorder and VCR is completed. Playback VHS tape in VCR, Insert blank DVD disc in DVD recorder and press Record while you see VHS tape picture in TV. Hope this info will help you.
hook the video output from vcr to dvd input at rear, then hook output from dvd to tv input. note; you can not record protected vcr movies you can only record tv shows from sattelite to vcr or dvd recorder. its best to record straight from sattelite to dvd recorder for picture clarity.
