Sounds like you either didn't set the clock, or you've got it plugged into a power strip with an on/off button and your turning the Philips off with that button. It needs constant power to maintain settings (called "Standby" power).

I did set the clock/date , but it rest every time , I turn off the main socket which has the TV, PS3 and DVDR615.
I presume DVDR615 should save the clock/date internally as other gadgets.

Nope, plug the DVDR in a wall socket or at least a surge suppressor w/o an on/off switch or one you leave ON forever.
Also, don't connect to a wall plug controlled by a wall switch!

Its strange that you have to always turn the switch on. This means the internal battery has some problem from the factory then.

Are you serious?
The "problem" is turning all power off to this unit at the wall switch... all DVDRs have some backup power but Philips here in the U.S. have only a 30-sec power backup (if Auto Clock is off)... turn off all power and 30-sec later, all clock settings and timer rec programs are lost!

but when I set for program recording I don't switch the power off I just hit timer button on the remote and dvdr goes for standby with timer indicator.
next day I check and found nothing

Thanks , it's plugged into surge suppressor , yet I always switch off the wall socket.
I noticed when set the timer for a program recording , I never get the saved recoding setting program , because I suspect whenever the DVD what to start recording the clock setup screen pop up .!

How do you switch off the wall socket?
Surge protector is not a battery backup?
