> Do I need to update the firmware?
If you are lucky; Sylvania is a branch of Funai which is the 'bottom of the barrel' on quality so it may be just another case of Funai-ism.
Other brands belonging to Funai:
Symphonic, Emerson, Aventura, Durabrand, ESA, Magnavox, INSIGNIA, Philips and Misakai
I earned part of my income from servicing consumer electronics some years ago and historically, Funai gear has been among the worst built.

contacting Sylvania customer support with the model and serial number of your television, which can be found on the back of the set. Sylvania's toll-free support number for LCD television sets is (866) 321-3927. Call (800) 968-3429 if you have an old tube-type (Cathode Ray Tube) Sylvania television.

You can't use 16x or anything that says 1x-16x or 1x-4x.
The 4X speed DVD-R are difficult to find. (Tried Office Depot,OfficeMax, Staples, Microcenter,Best Buy and Walgreens!) Finally found Princo brand at checkoutstore.com

They worked great!

Can you run any DVD on your laptop?  If not, my first thought is that you don't have DVD software loaded.  If your laptop indeed has a DVD drive you should have received software with it to play DVDs, such as PowerDVD or WinDVD.

Unfortunately without a firmware upgrade the only disks you can use are DVD-R or DVD-RW. The tricky part is that you can ONLY USE 2X speed. Per my conversation with Sylvania there is a firmware update that will allow you to use up to 8x disks, but they are charging $17.00 for it.

What progressive scan "button?" On the unit? Remote? In the LCD display? I don't see one....

From comments posted on the Internet by other Sylvania users with a similar problem, I  learned that I had to use a 4X DVD-R (the ones I had been trying to record on were 16X). And I found that Office Depot sells the sometimes hard-to-find 4X format, so that's where I'm headed right after lunch.  Thanks.

You need to buy the - disks. (+ will not work).

The instruction manual can be found online.

Have you read the manual? I haven't tried to do that, but make sure your DVD is formatted (the unit will do it automatically).

Search for DVD43 on the net. It's a free download. It works 99.99% of the time.

To answer this I need to know the make, model and year of your DVD player, and if you bought it in northamerica, or europe.

So now I get an e-mail from Fix Ya asking me if I found a solution, if not they offer me a PREMIUM (Charge)Plan to help me solve the problem.

If I have solved my problem they want me to tell them how I fixed it for FREE.

Do you guys at Fix Ya use us as your employees to solve others problems and you collect the money? That is such a shame!

You have the wrong number model. The model number is not DVR9OVF.... It is DVR9OVE. I have the same problem. I called the 800 number because I buaght a 50 pack of dvd's at Office Depot (Ativa Reg. $29.99 GREAT SALE PRICE FOR $9.99)and it gave me an error "disk is not recordable" E24. They told me this dvd supports a limited dvd disk brand....Maxell, Memorex, TDK, JVC, and Sony, so I am returning them to the store. I know Sony does work because I used those before.
