So, if I had instead bought a Pioneer DVR-640H-S I'd probably be posting the same question ?
And why can't it read at faster than 4X speed when copying from dvd to hard drive?
You know this wouldn't be so aggravating if a person could still buy a well made VCR, but most of the VCR's still being made are really poorly made.
When I did the last firmware update, it seemed to be a two part process. First it displayed A-Update 1~100% then it did a D-Update 1~100%.
I tried to repeat the update process. The second time through it only did the A-Update.
I'm guessing the A-Update was for the Hard Drive Controller circuit and the D-Update was for the DVD burner itself.
Maybe we should all go back to the Grammaphone, as long as you didn't drop the cylinder it worked
