Okay…I formally surrender.
I WAS a kid who had to program the VCR for dad back in the day. But my new DMREH50 has me completly baffled. AND THE INSTRUCTIONS MAKE IT WORSE!!!
-My machine is in my bedroom. I HAVE to keep it there. Otherwise, kids and family will touch it and do horrible things. Problem is, watching in bedroom is not cozy or ideal. I would like to record to HDD, transfer to DVD-RAM, watch the program, and then RECYCLE the DVD-ram for the next program. Can I do this? How do I find out if my computer (which is where I will watch these) is compatible? Is there something I need to look for? I have a DELL Demension 4000. (not my choice, family voted for it…I would tell you what is has, but I cannot figure out where DELL hid the onfo on this computer. Same goes for the DVD-RAM…I have no clue how to look up if it is compatible.)
- I bought the machine because of the SD card. I thought I could use this to do “Still frame captures” of shows to put on the net. When I say this, I mean…record to HDD…press pause…record single frame to SD card…take card over to comp and dump it via a card USB reader…but I cannot figure out this can be done, or IF it can be done…(yep, I watch LOST and we put frame grabs on the net for our crackpot theories.) Again, I see nothing telling me how to do this? Am I wrong? Am I naive?
anyone…saying ANYTHING…would really help me…otherwise, I am going to spend a fortune in DVD-R’s to be able to watch programs and do screen grabs on my computer.
Please…try to keep it as simple as possible. My head spins too much now. I need to be treated like the complete idiot.
Honestly…I am looking for a idiots guide. an alternate to the instructions. Does anyone have one? Is there a link? Is there hope?
