Ok you need to press STAR Button which says mode above it and either 1,2 or 3 to find which freqency is being use. The dvd and the remote need to be on the smae on.

Every time I try to use the remote on my Toshiba RD-XS32SU Video Recorder I get the following code displayed on the unit: DR-OFF I do not know what it means and how to resolve the problem.


It is confusing to many people this function, but not impossible to investigate (perhaps experiment with some of the functions). You can get a copy of the INSTALLATION GUIDE (if you don't have a copy for any reason) from the following:

http://tacpservice.toshiba.com/consumerproductsupport/Manuals/dvr/RD-XS32SU_Inst_E.pdf

and if you don't have a copy of the original OWNER'S MANUAL, you can also download that from the following:

http://tacpservice.toshiba.com/consumerproductsupport/Manuals/dvr/rd-xs32_om_e.pdf

(copy and paste into your browser if required - these are both FREE documents)

(Page 48 of the installation guide (not the owner's manual) tells you about IR CODE setup option using remote - read that first if you like, then try your recorder).

Hopefully this helps you a tiny bit.

Greetings,

Check pages 44 and 45 of the installation guide (not the owner's manual.) It will tell you how to change the recorder & the remote from DR 1 to DR 2 or DR 3. To change the remote you hold the * button plus 1,2 or 3 to change the remote.

Front Display is saying DR-2 and will not let me use remote to control anything...only thing I can do is shut power off with front panel..I have unplug from outlet and let set for 30mins and plugged back...


I received an attachement from the Toshiba Repair folks several months ago, when we had the same problem. To resolve it, do the following:

While pressing the Easy Navi button on the remote, press 2. The remote control mode will be set to DR 2, which is what the recorder is telling you it is set to.

We encountered this problem for the first time, for no apparent reason. It happened again today, after the operator dropped the remote. This fix worked both times.

My Toshiba SE-R0161 Remote no longer works.


There is most likely nothing wrong with your remote. I just had exactly the same issue with my SE-R0161 remote. (I had just changed my remote batteries too and was getting a DR-2 code on the Toshiba DVR RD-XS52 unit's display.) My DVR and my remote had to be realigned so that they both have the same infared (IR) code. The remote and the DVR can have DR 1, DR 2 or DR 3 as remote codes. Pg 54 of the Toshiba Installation Manual explains how to align both your SE-R0161 and your based unit so that the remote works again. Good luck. Hope this helps.

Hold both the channel up and down buttons on the front of the recorder for 3 secs until DR1 shows in the display. Try it and let me know if it worked..

Toshiba RD-XS55-S-TU corruption of video after firmware update This recorder is around 2 years old and was functioning fine. Occasionally I'd have a problem with corrupt pixels when copying from DVD-RAM to the HDD (never from DVD-R for some reason). I complained several times to Toshiba and they claimed since I am in Japan it is due to the Hz issue (50 Hz versus 60 Hz). I do use a transformer to provide 120 volts. However pulling the plug for 3+ minutes usually solves the problem. I upgraded to the latest firmware hoping it would solve these issues. At the termination of the update, the last couple of steps of the instructions did not occur (similar to another poster complaining of this problem). I pressed the standby switch for 10+ seconds but I did not get a 'Wait' message nor did the tray close automatically. I had to pull the plug to gain access to the recorder. The recorder starts up fine, except I have a chronic problem with corrupt pixels now whenever I dub from DVD-RAM to HDD. I have tried pulling the plug for hours and as long as a day, but no help. I also have problems with the recorder locking up during scheduled recordings: I turn on the TV and the image is locked in mid recording and none of the buttons on the recorder works to turn it off so I have to pull the plug. Of course I lose the recording and all scheduled recordings after that. Sometimes the audio would just plain fail. Toshiba wants me to send the unit in for repair at a cost of $150 but freight by U.S. Postal Service from my FPO AP address to the U.S. will run $40! I told them why should I pay for repair when it was caused by their firmware update??? I notice they have subsequently pulled the firmware file from their site, no doubt due to my complaints. Any suggestions on how to fix the recorder and/or get Toshiba to repair it at no charge, which I feel is a fair demand? I have already tried to format the HDD several times (using the Toshiba instructions via the recorder) and tried the firmware update again 3X to no avail. I even tried to use the Canadian firmware update for this unit but the recorder won't recognize it.
