Welcome to CD Freaks
Just in case this bug has been fixed in a firmware update, could you check what software version your DVD/HDD recorder is using? It’s been a few years now since Philips last released an update for this recorder, but still worth checking just in case yours has earlier firmware with this bug.
You can check the current version by going into the setup menu and pressing the following keys in sequence: 3, 2, 1, Select. The last two digits of the version info displayed is the version number you’re using. The latest version number is ‘10’, at least for the US model of your DVD/HDD recorder.
If you have an earlier version, you can download the latest firmware from the Philips website. You can access it as follows:
[li]Go to the Philips support website on this link.[/li][li]Enter “DVDR3455” and click ‘Search’[/li][li]Choose the 2nd link returned (1st link just told me about the Analogue TV cut-off).[/li][li]Click “Software & Drivers” on the left.[/li][/ol]
