I have been trying to record TV and found that if the pause button is kept on for a long time (45 minutes ) the unit freezes up - wont respond to remote or the switches - resulting in yanking the cord out at the power source.
On resuming, the unit complains of “damaged title” and gives me a recover or cancel option. There is no response for recover and on cancelling, the last recorded is cleaned out!
I have to note here , that I use DVD +RW. I have timed recording one day a week and the unit is under warranty.
If any one has a similar problem with “Pause” or with timed recording I would like to get help
