I have an Explorer 8642HD PVR from Videotron> In the user manual, it mentions that you can archive the content to a DVD recorder. I have a Pioneer DVD recorder but I don't know what commands I should press on either component to copy to a DVD. Can you please help?

Once you have it connected properly per the following FAQ, you press "record" on the DVD recorder and "play" on the PVR when you wish to record. (you can have the programme you wish to record all set to go and paused at the starting point. You then press record on the recorder and play on the PVR at roughly the same time.)

Many people have found that the "copy to VCR" function (if it exists on your firmware) doesn't work very well, so just do the recording at a time you don't need to watch.

Here's a useful post - FAQs, Search Tips, Optimization, etc:

Cisco 4642 hd and pioner dvd recorder

Hello everyone,

Glad I found this amazing forum.....

My situation is simple

I have an explorer 4250HD connected to an Pioner dvd recorder and when I want to record a movie from the movie network such as chanell 214 it works fine and it does record.

Now the same channel and same movie from my new explorer 4642HD CISCO
connecte to my other Pioner DVD recorder gives me an error and tell me it cannot record content...

Can any one help..... before I trash the new 4642HD

Just cannot understand why it's not letting me record.


Thanks in advance for any help.
