You need to FINALISE the recorded disc for compatible playback in any DVD player or PC. This should be a menu option on your DVD recorder. (similar to DVD management on Panasonic recorders).

It always helps to do a test recording on some discs first, then finalise them to see how they play elsewhere before going ahead and doing serious recording in this unit.

When a disk is stuck inside the player , try following the procedure below:

Unplug power cord.
Plug back power.
Turn on the unit and press repeatedly the eject button at the same time. If you successeed in ejecting the disk before the player starts reading TOC(disk initial track), then the disk will eject.
If that does not work, then there is an internal fault, in that case the unit must be taken apart to remove the disk.

You likely have two video input options, s-video and composite (also known as RCA or A/V). All you need to do is change which connector your using in the settings. Look for a button on your remote that says SETUP or OPTIONS. Once you push it, you should get a settings menu. Look for something like REQUIRED SETTINGS or SYSTEM SETTINGS. Play around with it, and you will find the option to select between the connectors.

I hope this helps! :-)

Simple. Connect the composite output from the VCR to the composite input on the back of the Presidian. Then connect the coaxial output from the back of the DVR to the coaxial input on the back of the Presidian. Then connect the coaxial output from Presidian to the coaxial input on the back of the TV. Turn everything on and enjoy! :-)

Protected content = the movie/dvd you are trying to record/copy is protected against that by DRM. You can't circumvent that in your unit.
If you still want to copy it you will have to rip it first to a pc and remove the protection using an practically illegal software. If you still wanna do it here's a tutorial - use it at your own risk

I know it always sounds insulting when someone asks, but are you sure that you're feeding the AV out of the VCR to the AV in of the DVD player?
Many many people get the in and out jacks confused, especially since some of them can be quite awkward to negotiate or are poorly labeled.
I found that, in electronics, most of my problems were solved when I disconnected everything and started over very carefully.

It may be dust in the connectors. If you remove the cover and use a can of dust remover to blow out any dust, also, blow out the connector holes. I fixed to VCR's like this. Good Luck.
