Re: programming channels

Press Menu, press up and down arrows to choose the Input Select option then press side arrows to set the channel. Tuner will automatically cycle through all available channels in your area. After the Auto channel search is complete make sure the Channel source is set appropriately (TV or CATV) by pressing up and down arrows and chossing the correct source by pressing the side arrows using the channel setup menu. Press Menu to return to the TV screen. Use CH/TRK arrows or CHANNEL arrows on the front panel to cycle the DVD+VCR through the channels in memory.

I'm thinking of buying this VCR/DVR combo - Toshiba DVR670 -- but first I want to know if you can program the VCR recording timer using time span information -- not just those codes for programs you find...

Usually, depending on the source, or channel, timer recording can be performed on a VCR; even this model.

The short answer is YES - you can record cable times or set manual scheduled recordings on this VCR. It depends on the channel(s) available in your area, and/or the source (such as cable receivers/set top boxes, etc.) which are intended to be recorded.

Sanyo dvd/vcr combo

Your universal remote would have seperate selection buttons for VCR and DVD. If you don't have a VCR button, use AUX. Try programming each function seperately - DVD code for your manufactirer on the DVD button and VCR code for your manufacturer on the VCR button.

Problems tuning TV and SLV-900

the video recorder has it's own tuner you do not actually record from the tv... think of the vcr as like a tv but without a screen... connect to your tv via a scart lead and while you are on the vcr's 'channel' (so you could see a tape playing on your tv) and access the menu on you vcr (not the tv's menu) choos auto tune if the vcr supports it or manual tune if it has no auto tune and tune in the required channels on your vcr... it is simply then a matter of selecting on your vcr which channel you wish to record

Dish Pro record code for Mag combo

ZNREL, I've done this with Dish Pro before. Setup the Dish remote to control the Mag combo in the VCR position. Press the SAT button and select the guide. Go to the program in the guide and select it. The "record this program" routine should pop up, set it up. Here's the key, make sure the Dish remote has the VCR button selected and that the remote is placed where it can "see" the Mag combo. At the set time, the Dish remote will change the DishPro to the proper channel and then issue s "record" command via infrared to the Mag combo to start recording. DishNet has all of the device codes to their remotes downloadable from their site.
