Advertisements If I record several episodes of a show on 1 DVD, can I then record them again on another? Here's the reason for the question and the background detail for the scientific methodologists among you. We have been running into probs burning shows onto a no-brand name set of DVD-RWs. When that happens, however, one doesn't know if it's the disk or if the copy flag that's been set on a show. We dug up a brand name disk and were able to burn 3 NCIS episodes. That suggested to us that the shows were recordable; no DRM, copy protection flag set. So, we then tried a non-brand name disk again; no luck. Tried another. Rebooted the Tivo in case that mattered. Tried again. The dreaded Saving Failed came up. Went out and bought set of brand name DVD-RWs, still no luck on burning the NCIS shows. Took the very brand-name disk that had failed and put it in our other Tivo DVD burning unit and it recorded 3 movies fine. We also were able to burn a NOVA on the 1st Tivo with one of our old brand name disks. So, we're down to the hypothesis that it's a string of lousy non-brand name disks-- or that Tivos only permit 1 recording of a show. (If that's the case, it should tell us that rather than trying to burn and then failing.) I suspect, after all this, that it's the cheap DVD-RWs that are the problem, but then why didn't the brand name one record the NCIS episodes?
