Question about Toshiba 160HD4 160GB HD Digital Video Recorder
I have the hdd and dvd video recorder rd-kx50 so i dont know if it's the same one i checked here but didnt see mine. i've already contacted toshiba and they gave me a replacement manual. i was able to find codes to program the remote for my tv but i was trying to get the remote to change channels on teh dvr because it stopped doing that. i went to the ir controls on the setup menu. i switched it from dr 1 to dr 2 which normally wouldnt be a problem since i did it before and fixed it anyway the manual says i should press easy navigation and 1 for dr 1 2 for dr 2 and 3 for dr3 i need dr 1 but now nothing happens when i do that. i bought new batteries and still have the same problem once i kept pressing easy nav and 1 over and over and over and the screen that normally comes up for easy navi did come up but my remote still could not access it so that wasnt helpfull but i do wonder how did the button work for that second when the remote doesnt work. i realy would like to know is it possible to do anything directly from the dvr withouth the remote besides recording and playing the last thing recorded and also how can i get it back on dr 1 the manual also says if i press the ch buttons on teh dvr for 3 seconds i can turn of he dr but still the remote doesnt work with that so theres no point in that thanks

SOURCE: remote control code
The remote control for your DVR has the capability to control 2
additional DVRs in addition to the one that you currently have. In
order for the remote control to work with your DVR, you will need to
make certain both of them are talking on the same frequency. If you
press the remote control and the front of your unit says DR2, that
means that you need to have your remote on DR2 as well so that it can
operate the DVR. To set your remote to DR2, you will need to make sure
the unit is off then you will need to press and hold down the SETUP
button and while you are holding this button down, press the number 2
button. Your remote is now set to DR2.

WOW another person that kept the rd-kx50, Welcome brother or sister to the fold..lol.
I had that problem a couple of times, I just remove the hdmi cable while the tv and recorder are off, and then connect it once it's back on.
It's a pain to do this, but you could just use the component cables and not worry about the issue (at a slight cost of picture quality)

Testimonial: "If you still have the this device, see my warning in the comments section."
Press the HDD and DVD bottons on the player at the same time it will then show DR2 when remote is pressed. Press mode key and the number 2 key on remote, this should now work
