connectecting DVDR to Virgin TIVO

Hi

We have TIVO installed and the DVDR was working fine then started to play up picture but no sound, thinking it was the DVDR we got a new 1 since then sometimes it will work or might work part way through a program and then the sound goes off.

We have changed the SCART and HDMI cable and it still the same, all we want to do is transfer the program we are watching to DVD, can anybody help?

TV is LG RG 476W450U DVDR is LGDRT389H

Yvonne

Welcome to the forum (lol ... some people Smiley Wink)

Are you connecting the recorder from Tivo via. scart and the tv from Tivo via. HDMI? This might have stopped working properly after last years upgrade to the Tivo software when various sound issues were introduced. You say you are recording what you watch, do you lose audio on the tv at the time, or only when you play the DVD back? Or have you turned the tv off, leaving it recording? Have you ever paused or fastforwarded tivo (e.g. to skip adverts) whilst recording? If you still have sound on the tv but not when you play the DVD back and it is intermittent, it might be worth trying a different brand and/or speed of DVDr's, might just be an incompatibility issue.

After checking on line there is an article in the guardian to say you can do this if its for your own use and does not show copyright terms.

Legally you should only be recording for timeshifting purposes, but copyright holders have always turned a "Blind-eye" to analogue copies being kept. This is mainly because the first generation copy form was the VCR tape which they had no physical control over anyway. Digital copying is a different matter, with obstacles (such as HDCP) being introduced on HDMI connections to help prevent copying.

Re: connectecting DVDR to Virgin TIVO

Hi connecting TIVO by SCART to the DVDR and by HDMI from DVDR to television, switching channel on television to AV2 and sound goes off DVDR is also on AV2 just like it was before and using the same disc.  Last week it worked for 2 hours and then the sound went off on AV2.
