    Signed up for DIRCTV. How do you reprogram the channels. I do automatic and it doesn't work. When I set up to record it has DVT 1. and then can move the 2nd box to only 98 but does not record from whatever number I put in.

    I have made several DVD-Rs recording from HDD on my Magnavox 515 with no problems. With the one I just finished I am unable to re-title the individual subjects or add a title to the disc. The only option is to finalize. Has anyone experienced this? I suspect the reason is that the disc has...

    It happened once tonight and when I tried later, it didn't happen. I rewound the auto-recording and when it played back, it pixelated horribly. Not constant, but most of the time. I tried doing some plain recording and playback was normal. Then I tried rewinding the auto record again and it was...

    I was able to hook it up to a Slingbox Solo using the composite output and it works fine on the channel which I use the actual remote set to. However I have not been able to find a sling remote that works to change the channels. I called the help line, but they did know know how to do it...

    I use my videorecorder every day and have about 8 timer programs. Is there any way to stop video recording for a month when I'm away on vacation without losing having to reprogram everything when I get back? I can't find this in the manual or the on-screen menus.

    I tried to change my clock time today and discovered that all general setup menus except for playback are greyed out. What happened? If I power off, will it reset? Will I lose all titles? I also noticed that all items on the menu pages under title list are unselectable...help!

    I think I blew out my MDR515H (which I'd upgraded to a 500GB HDD). While replacing a fuse (as I had successfully once before) after a power outage was restored, I managed to short out the unit itself and blow the fuse on the TV it was connected to. A new fuse in the unit does not get it to...

    I have a Magnavox MDR515H/F7 DVR that I have been using with my cable television. My DVR was manufactured in Sept 2010. We are now going to change to standard definition Direct TV. Will my Magnavox 515 work with Direct TV? Will I be able to record all the stations I get on Direct TV to the dvr...

    I just purchased this unit a few weeks ago because I wanted to be able to use a timer to record cable programs when I'm away or watching something else. I just read in the users manual that if you are hooking this up through your cable, you have to have the tv on the channel that you want to...

    I've had my Magnavox MDR515H for a few years and love it. But recently whenever I record, whether to hard drive or DVD, the sound is really low. Previous recordings, whether on the hard drive or DVD, are fine. Anyone have any suggestions as to what might be the problem?

    Had a very short power outage today, and the re-start must have had a surge, which blew the fuse on my MDR515 (as wll as blowing out my router's PS). It had no effect at all on my other 2 DVRs. I was able to temporary steal a fuse from one of my other Philips DVRs to replace it and it seems...

    I have Charter cable going into a Motorola MTR700 Tuning Adapter into the Tivo, with a cable card. How could the Mag.515 be used in this situation to schedule and record the same programs as the Tivo? I love my Panasonics, but I was lucky to snag one of these 515's from Wal Mart, online, a few...

    We got our first MDR515H/F7 in Sept. (W/ much thanks to this forum.) Fell in love w/ it and 2 weeks later bought a second. Both working fine. Decided to get a third "just in case" since we figured getting repairs would be impossible if something went wrong w/ one of the units which we can't...

    Can this dvr record movies I play on my pc on the television? I hook up my pc to the tv using s-video so is there a way to have the dvr to record that?

    After some great feedback from you forum members, i bit the bullet and shelled out the cash for a new 515. It arrived today. After running around looking for long enough S-video, RCA and HDMI cables, i got everything hooked up. One thing that i thought would be cool was running the monitor...

    Hello, I came here to find out what is going on with my refurbished Magnavox MDR515H/F7 HD DVR. But using the model number or even the brand did not lead to any threads?! OK I want to know why does this unit sometimes when dubbing from HD to DVD it plays the item being dubbed and slows...

    My wife and I bought a Logic Design (Zorilla) video filter a while back and, before we could test it our DVD recorder died, then we replaced it and I was never able to get a tape to copy. I'm using a Sony SLV-495 VCR and a Magnavox MDR515H DVR/DVD recorder with composite cables. I've tried...

    Since I can't input a HDMI cable and the only inputs are Standard Definition (Yellow) and S-Video cable. I ordered a IEEE1394 to a 4 pin DV patch cord. The output on my Cable Box>>>Scientific Atlanta Explorer 4250HDC Has a IEEE1394 output for TVs that have that input. My question is will I...

    Hello, Can't find any comparisons (might be overlooking it) and before I decide on one would like to see what many here would recommend? Older model or the newer one. Your help would be appreciated.

    I searched for timer failure or malfunction here without success. If this has already been reported in some other thread I'd appreciate a pointer to it. Not infrequently I've noticed recurring (daily or weekly) timers disappearing apparently at random, but today I think I figured out what...
