Pioneer 540HX error on playback help


Standard Member
I have a Pioneer DVR-540HX-S and I have recorded to this from the programs I've recorded on Virgin TV in the past with no problems. I have made several attempts to do the same thing recently but although the DVR shows that the program has recorded for the correct amount of playback time, when I actually hit playback the recording stops after about 10 minutes or so and flips back over to TV cable mode. I would be grateful if anyone could pinpoint where the error is as I want to get all my recordings off Virgin cable onto DVD via the DVR as I dont want to subscribe to Virgin TV anymore. There's nothing in the manual to help that I can see. Ideas anyone? :confused:
