magnavox MDR535

post #1 of 9
Thread Starter 
I have a Magnavox MDR535 recorder. The channels are set up correctly. I can't figure out why some of the timers record on the correct channel, but then other times (same timer weekly programmed) and records the wrong channel. It is extremely frustrating. Anyone have any ideas or have experienced the same thing and a fix?.

Couple of thoughts, does your cable system use SDV? If so that could explain the wrong thing being recorded, also are you using auto-clock set? It's possible you are getting an incorrect time signal causing your events to record at the wrong time.

I just have OTA no cable or satellite connected. I checked the time and it is correct, it was recording fine and then it arbitrarily decides to do a different channel at the correct time or a different program right channel for a different program... very confusing. This just started. The auto clock was off

Are you trying to record from sub channels? I don't know maybe X.1, X.5, etc?

I had that issue everytime with my LG recorder, but not with my Maggys.

Also we need to know where are your 535, since you're doing OTA and not Sat/Cable.

I agree, very confusing. When you said it just started, how long had you been recording with no issues? Even stranger if it use to work for several weeks and now just out of the blue your having these issues confused.gif
It might be worth it to try and reset your unit(I'm sure Wajos sticky thread would have info on how to do this) sometimes a cold boot can cure odd issues.....

Well, it's not a subchannel issue, like wihen using the Clear QAM tuner (Digital Cable). I mean where is located your 535 (I forgot you only have one), maybe the problem was generated for a strange network signal.

In any case the reset should work.
