Okay, so just so I understand fully, are you trying to record a show from the TV onto a DVD?

Ask Your Own Computer Question
Customer reply replied 10 months ago
I have put 3 "Titles" on the disk. I edited the 3 titles and given them names. I try to watch the program, the minutes spin but no picture or sound.I have not used the recorder for several years, but I remember "FINALIZING" the disk before I was able to watch.
Customer reply replied 10 months ago
I find nothing in the Owner's Manual about "FINALIZING"
Tech Support Specialist: Ricky Expert, Computer Hardware Engineer replied 10 months ago

Okay, here are the steps to finalize the DVD:

  1. Press the "Setup" button in the lower right-hand corner of the remote control, select "Disc" and press "Enter."
  2. Use the up and down arrow keys to highlight "Finalize" then press "Enter" to display a confirmation window.
  3. Use the up and down arrow keys to select "Yes" then press "Enter." Wait for the "Finalization Complete" message to display before removing the DVD.

I still see no picture or hear any sound?
Tech Support Specialist: Ricky Expert, Computer Hardware Engineer replied 10 months ago

Since you are using the DVD recorder to play the files and it is still not working after the finalizing of the DVD, it sounds like the files must not have recorded properly. Please check that your cable/satellite box hooks up to the DVD recorder properly, and then the DVD play goes out to the TV.

Ask Your Own Computer Question
Tech Support Specialist: Ricky Expert, Computer Hardware Engineer replied 10 months ago

Were you able to confirm that the cables from the back of the cable box go into the "IN" ports on the back of the DVD recorder?

I am very happy with my very fast response. Eric is very knowledgeable in the subject area. Thank you!

RPAustin, TX

Hi John, Thank you for your expertise and, more important, for your kindness because they make me, almost, look forward to my next computer problem. After the next problem comes, I'll be delighted to correspond again with you. I'm told that I excel at programing. But system administration has never been one of my talents. So it's great to have an expert to rely on when the computer decides to stump me. God bless, Bill
