Question about Toshiba RD-XS34 DVD Player/HDD Recorder

Refuses to Record Program onto HDD

We just bought one of these and unfortunately, when we go into the TV Guide and press the record button on a program, the player won't record. It will list the program under its "going to record" list but when the time comes, it just cancels itself and removes the program from the list. We have tried several different ways including the manual way. When trying to record a program that is playing right now, it gives the message "An Unexpected Error Has Occured". What could be the problem? Thanks.

Re: Refuses to Record Program onto HDD

I have exactly the same problem. The difference with mine is that mine actually starts up - thsn won't shut off until I manually when I set it to record when I'm away.

Cannot record externally from Humax bt you View box onto Toshiba RDXV60KB ( HDD & DVD modes). As I previously could? I am getting message E26 " Cannot record from this program". But the Tos

This error e26 gets thrown up on some digital rights management programs.this really just means you are not allowed to record...ever increasingly thanks to the big corps like sony drm carrier signals are put into some broadcasts to overcome copying infringements.there still is a way to do this with the right equipment.some tv channels get revenue from their advert counts so they put these signals in to ensure that you can only watch at broadcast or catchup on certain devices.what I can't figure out is I can record anything whilst it's being aired and still transfer to older equipment but not anything with latest ios and certainly not with sony recorders.

We sought assistance from someone in the neighbourhood and they were able to assist us with easier instructions than the long winded directions in the manual.

Transferring from timeshift buffer to hdd

When in timeshift, press record on the remote (every time you push "record" 30 minutes are added) and make sure the program you are recording is not macro protected. If your program has already finished rewind to the beginning of the program and push record the correct number of times to cover your program and then press stop on the remote. It should then be at the bottom of your hard drive list.

Recording does not work

Could bethat your Hard Drive is full. Make sure it isn't and if it is then try erasing some programs. Also, check the User's Guide to reset the unit (usually done by pressing a combination of buttons for about 10 seconds)
