Question about Humax DRT800 DVD Recorder w/ 80 hr Tivo
When I try to record a program from Tivo to the DVD, it begins to record but at the end always has the message "Saving Failed". The only message is "internal error". I have tried several different brands of DVD-R's. It was recording fine previously. The DVD is built into the Humax Tivo unit. Thank you.
tried cleaning the lens--helped about 50% of the time but still have the problem
After the update to 1.15 I had to delete EVERY recording on the unit. After that, any new recordings would burn just fine. However, some have found that same failure even after a hard reboot (repower). Called Humax level-1 support and they suggested a replacement unit so I swapped it out. But I've since learned that TiVo "pushes" a DVD firmware patch (possible supplied by Humax) from 1.08 to 1.15 and that patch is the culprit. That patch is suppose to make the DVD burn at a higher spin rate. After talking with level-2 Humax support they heard of the problem and said "the unit is working as designed", meaning, the DVD drive manufacturer specs say the drive is capable of a faster burn rate. So now I have Humax DTR800 #2 and so-far-so-good, but TiVo hasn't pushed the patch onto the box yet!
