    Searching for a code
    If your home entertainment device does not respond to the remote control after trying all of the codes listed for your brand, or if your brand is not listed at all, try searching for your code.

    Example: You've tried all the codes for your TV, but you still cannot get the remote control to operate your TV.


    1. Turn on your TV.
    2. On the remote control, press TV once.
    3. Then press and hold SETUP until the TV key blinks twice, then release the SETUP key.
    4. Using the number pad, enter 9-9-1. The TV key will blink twice.
    5. Aim the remote control at the TV and slowly alternate between pressing Power and TV. Stop when the TV turns off after pressing the POWER key. This means that a working code has been found.
    6. Press the SETUP key once to lock in the code. The TV key will blink twice.

    Note: Use the AUX key to program the remote for an audio receiver or DVD player.

Yes you can record any TV show HD or SD, however it depends on what connections you use and what the recorder does with the input signals. You can record HD shows but not in HD resolution if you connect using composite video (yellow RCA cable) you just get a down-converted resolution, probably 480. You must use a HDMI or a component video connection for HD BUT if the recorder cannot record HD video, it should just record it in SD resolution but it should record the input signal. DVD is not HD, you would have to go to Blu-ray for HD and there are not many Blu-ray recorders around. The hard drive has the potential to record in HD but the recorder would have to process HD signals and you would have to connect with HDMI or component video. I would say your Toshiba will record an HD show but in SD resolution. I don't think the recorder has an HDMI input or a component video input. Just composite and S-video inputs. To actually record in HD you should look at another recorder.

The HD box from your cable company only sends High Definition Video signal which DVD does not support. Your DVD recorder "CANNOT RECORD THIS PICTURE" because it can not process (see) the High Definition (HD) Signal.
To record from an HD reviver you would need a HD recorder (Blu-ray) very expensive The standard practice for recording from a HD cable receiver id to use an DVR here is a link to one for about $100 some models will have a standard video output you could connect your dvd recorder to.

Appears to be recording but is not. The player


Hi
Does your dishnet box have two tuners or one, if only one then only the program being watch on the tv can be recordered , this will have to be connected to the av input on the recorder and one of the av (line input) selected with the remote control for the recorder, If the dishnet box as two tuners then the output from one tuner can be used to feed the tv and the other one will go to the recorder connected through the av input. hope this will help regards windyhouse

Can't find code


it would need to be programmed, need to know the make of your dvd player. But really most people dont program it because it is a pain. Every time you turn your tv and cable box on you will also turn on the dvd player and then have to turn it off. so it is better just to turn in on when you need it.

A/V Signal Outout through Onkyo TX-SR705


Are you trying to record cable programming with your DVD recorder? If so, you might want to try using component cable as HDMI does have a copy protection circuit that might be preventing your recorder from receiving the image. Just try to connect the cable box component (RED/GREEN/BLUE) cable to your DVD recorder. If that doesn't work, then try to change everything over to component cables. HDMI is a great cable to use but it the only required to display 1080p images and the only current source that uses 1080p is a bluray player. Everything else, such as your cable box and DVD recorder is 1080i and component cables are perfect for it.

Recording with comcast hd box and toshiba VCR/DVD


1st, see if you can get another cable box that offers component as well as RCA outputs on the back. Does your cable box have S Video out and does your toshiba have S Video in? If so, hook up the S Video from cable box to Toshiba. Then hook up R&W audio from Cable Box out to Toshiba In. Set the channel on the cable box to what you want to record. Set Toshiba to record channel 3 or 4, whichever your Toshiba is set on. The cable box controls the channel you are recording. You cannot set the recorder to the channel you want to record. It must be either 3 or 4. Try it. If everything else fails, you have to go cable from wall to cable in on cable box, cable out on cable box to cable in on Toshiba then either cable or RCA out on Toshiba to TV.
