Question about Philips DSR708 DirecTV DTV Receiver / 70-Hours Video Recorder

1 Answer

Tivo pausing I can watch live programming with no problem, But when I go to my Now Playing List shows and select a recorded show to watch it plays for a minute and then pauses for a few seconds and then continues on for a short while. I can fast forward on x1 or x2 o.k. but if I click it on x3 it freezes up and then the show will jump way ahead when it un freezes. Any Suggestions? Thanks, ALepp

Most likely your hard drive. You can replace it and not junk the unit.

Can i attach backup device to my lg HT356SD?


I would say yes, from what the manual says, the LG HT356SD has some Unique Features:

#1 Portable In : Listens to music from your portable device.
(MP3, Notebook, etc)

#2 USB Direct Recording : Records music from CD to your USB device.

Read the manual, on page 26 it will show you how to do it, I found it at www.theatresystem-manual.com under lg, or go directly to the link I provided.

1. Connect the USB device to the unit.
2. Select a DVD/ CD function by pressing

For the past couple of days, every show our DVR has recorded freezes a couple of minutes into playing it and the DVR reboots itself. This always occurs at the exact same time on that show. We don't have...


Hi, Mary with Dish Network Customer Service. Since the DVR is the only thing having the freezing issue, it sounds like it maybe a hard drive issue. I would recommend resetting the receiver. Unplug it from the power supply for 10 seconds and then let the receiver reboot itself. If you are still having this issue, I would recommend calling Dish Network and we will need to replace the receiver. Hard Drive issues do not resolve themselves and only get worse over time. Please let me know if I can be of further assistance.

Is it possible to record one show, while watching another ??


You need to put a cable splitter on the cable. One side goes to the TV. The other side goes to the recorder. The output of the recorder goes to one of the alternate inputs on the TV. Set the recorder for whatever channel you want to record using its internal tuner. Use the TV tuner to watch a show live. Later, set the TV input to whatever you connected the recorder output to and watch your recording. You will probably need to do this to see the recorder menu to set up the recording.

I can't figure out how to bring up and watch a program i previously recorded on my motorola cable box


Look for a green button marked LIST almost in the center of the remote. If the List button doesn't work, be sure the remote is in the CBL mode (press the CBL button right under Master Power once)

When you get the list of recorded shows up, use the up and down arrow keys to highlight the show you want, then hit the OK/SELECT button. That should bring up another dialog box, look for Play and press the OK/SELECT button again to start.

TiVo stops recording


The problem is probably due to lack of available space on your Hard Drive.

Try deleting some programs you have saved as "Keep Until I Delete" and you should then be able to completely record the new programs.

Also, in case you didn't know, Tivo will NOT let you fill up the entire Hard Drive with programs you want to record, but rather, it keeps approx. 30 minutes of Hard Drive space for each tuner as a buffer so that in the case of a show you are watching live, you can go back and replay part of a show you have just seen.
