Questions & Answers for Magnavox Magnavox DVD Recorder, ZC320MW8

Question

Do you need TV remote to set up

I have a 10 year old TV and no longer have the remote. I have bought 4 other DVD recorders and when I got them home found out that you had to have the TV remote to do the set up. I had to return them for credit. Since I cannot read the instructions without buying the product (they are inside the box) I don't know if I will be able to do the set up on this one. Someone who has set it up or has a copy of the set up directions, please let me know if you need the TV remote to set it up.

Yes, you will need the remote to set this up. My advice is to buy a Universal remote for your TV and this should solve the problem. You can pick them up fairly cheap.

Question

Will this record my tv shows ok

I bought an LG less than a year ago now it only records a few minutes of each show sometimes 20/25 mins. All I want is to record my comedy shows etc. I think my problem may have been I used the same "place" on the dvd all the time. Will this work to record just basic stuff nothing fancy like movies? Should I get the Walmart warranty?

It should work with other units. Naturally, you are probably going to need some extra cables. I believe it comes with standard analog cables but if you have S-Video hook-up on your current DVD player you can copy that way as well. Keep in mind this unit will not copy Disney VHS tapes or videos. Some movies will copy, some will not. I bought it to convert home VHS movies and it does the job.

If you are describing a situation where you have a DVD player built into your TV unit, the answer is no.

The built-in DVD player does not pass the picture info into the recorder, only to the TV.

I have done just that. Finished yesterday. Only problem: It will only record for two hours on regular mode. I will look thru the manual to see if i can extend the record time. There is no display, so adjusting the settings will be tricky. I have a Swann set with two cameras and a monitor. I will post again when i try a diff. setting.

In your question, you didn't include which tv service provider u have but Directv has told me that if i pull up my tv guide or change the channel, it'll show up in the recording (i'm using a vcr but rep says it will be on either vcr or dvd recorder), so from that, i can only record one show @ a time. You should get in touch with your tv service provider who should know how the would transfer to the recorder.

There is no mention of DVD-RAM as an acceptable format in the manual, so I doubt it.

You can try it, just don't buy a spindle of 100 blanks.
