When you set the timer see if PDC appears. If it does switch it to off and try setting a record. PDC sometimes doesn't work. And the recorder will sit there waiting for the signal to tell it when to start recording. Which never comes! However you will have to set the time to adjust for it not recording late running TV shows. For example a show to start at 8pm and finish at 8.30pm, will need to be set at 7.59 till 8.35pm. Or you could miss the start or end! Wheras PDC would get it all even if it started at 8.05!
