We finally figured out that the progressive scan has been activated on our DVR100. Apparently our TV doesn't support the progressive scan, so the picture is blank. Does anyone know how to turn it off or reset the machine? The User's Manual is long gone!!
My remote was different from the one that Trackcar 2365 posted so I came up with this. This will take off the PRO symbol without resetting all of your other settings.
Press DOWN arrow once
Press RIGHT arrow three times
Press SETUP once
You should see the Menu screen. At the point you should use the LEFT arrow key to get back to the main system. The system will be in INTERLACED mode from that point.
I own this model and do have the manual; however, standard AV and S-Video connections do not transfer progressive scan video images. If you hookup a progressive scan output to a non-progressive scan TV input, you will not get an image, so it is probably the way you have your machine connected to your TV that is the problem. If you are trying to watch regular TV through your machine, you will probably need to use a standard Coaxial Cable. I hope this helps.
To do a blind RESET to factory defaults: turn unit on wait until finished starting up Press SETUP SETUP is Displayed on DVR100 Press Right Button Press Down Button three times Press Enter twice Unit should revert to Factory Defaults

Good day! Try to check the rca jack video input.Replace it with new one if defective. Also check the progressive scan features if activated. If it is activated check your TV if supported by progressive scan features, because some TV is not supported by progressive scan.You can deactivate it by turning off or activate the interlace mode.Press the open/close to open disk tray. And press the numeric keypad 1 for few seconds. Hope its help.
Press Setup,Right Arrow,Press Down 3 Times,Then Enter 2 times this should reset factory settings, I Hope This Is Correct As I Realize You Cant See The Menu But I Studied The Manual And Wrote Out The Exact Key Movements To Navigate The Restore Factory Settings menu. Hope This Helps Sincerely, Michael Scott
Make sure red is matched up to red, green to green, and blue to blue first. Then, try a different set of YPbPr (component) cables if you have a set available. If it still shows up red, then read this:

These are pp. 11 and 28 of your owner's manual for the HTS
If these methods still fail, try turning your TV's progressive scan off or on.
Connect your cable from the wall to the RF IN on the back of pd-dvr100
Connect your RF OUT on the back of your pd-dvr100 with a coaxial cable not included to the RF IN on your cable box
Connect the red, yellow, and white RCA Cable to the front or back of your TV

select IRC for your tuner input source

The recorder can now record all scanned channels onto your dvd+r when you press the record button
I only got it to record the scanned channels.
The good thing is you can record on another station while you are watching a show on your cable box.
