When I set my d.v.d. to record a programme it stops playback before the end of the show...very annoying when it is a mystery...I programme it to go over the time stated such as asking it to record for 2 hours instead of the 1 and 1/2 hours the programme goes for but that makes no difference. Could someone help with this.The recorder is a Topfield and the t.v. is an Akai.Thanks a lot.
I asked this question previously but I am still having trouble getting the whole programme. I have studied the info. book but still cannot get it right. Help please.

Re: recording

I think you chose the wrong forum. This is about PC's. Try Home Audio and Video.

Let me summarize. You've got a Topfield DVD-recorder. What model? Not a hard disk recorder, I assume. Never heard of Topfield, by the way, but it might be BIG where you happen to live; but just as well it could be the worst Chinese maker you've ever seen.

And how do you program it? Just simple basic start-time and end-time? Or via some directory that tells it should start at 9:30 and should finish at 11:00? With the basic start-time and end-time the recorder doesn't know the concept of a "program". It just records whatever it receives.

My old DVD recorder did that.

I learned to add a few more minutes to the record time. So I wonder one thing. You didn't tell if the 2 hours recorded 2 hours or 110 minutes. Tell me how many minutes it did record.

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
