Paused while recording - unit freezes! (Philips DVDR3595H)

[qanda]This thread is about the Philips DVDR3595H. Click here to see full specs[/qanda]I have a new Philips DVDR 3600 /75 in Australia - this number is not listed here so I picked the closest one.

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
