I can't guarantee that but there's one person who might know FOR SURE: DigaDo
. I believe he has both HDD/DVD and the ZV recorders.
I hope DigaDo
sees this and offers some info.
Yes, I have many Magnavox recorders, standard and HDD/DVD models.
I still have two Magnavox ZV450MW8 models (from 2007) and one Magnavox ZV450MW8A (from 2008). I don't currently have any of these set up for daily use. In the last month I gave away a third ZV450MW8.
The Magnavox 2080/2160/2160A/513/515 remotes will operate most functions
of ZV450/457/420/427 series combo recorders and other Magnavox recorders.
As Westly-C mentioned, remotes for the Magnavox HDD/DVD recorders lack the "Timer Set
" command. That command is required to put other Magnavox recorders into timer standby mode for recording scheduled programs and also exiting the timer standby mode in order to regain normal control of the recorder. For that reason the "Timer Set" command is essential
to the operation of these Magnavox combo recorders.
There is this Note found on page 41 of the ZV450MW8A Owner's Manual:"• Cancel the timer-standby mode by pressing
[TIMER SET] before operation for either DVD or VCR.
When finished operating, press [TIMER SET] to
resume the timer-standby mode.
• In the timer-standby mode, you can turn on the
power and use the component (VCR or DVD) which is
not currently timer-programmed."
The same Note appears on page 37 of the ZV450MW8 Owner's Manual.
