    I have a Pioneer DVR 720 H which I use to record tv programmes on. It works great, but although I finalise each DVD after recording I am unable to play back the programmes on my other DVD player, which is a Pioneer DV-U7.
    Am I doing something wrong here?

    Your Pioneer should be able to play your media fine - so there is obviously a problem. What media are you using? If it is DVD-R then it should work. If DVD-RW then you need to ensure you are using Video mode and not VR mode.

    Thanks for your advice. I use DVD-RW. Switching to video mode does the trick. At the risk of sounding dim, is there any way to salvage the stuff I'd already recorded (via VR mode) so that I can play those discs on other machines or do I need to start from scratch?

    Thanks again.

    You can dub them back to the HDD of your 720 and then dub to a Video formatted DVD-RW.
