Question about DVD & Blu-Ray Players
How can I hook up my Toshiba DVD player/VCR recorder to my Sony DVD/VCR recorder. Someone has hooked these up for us, but we cannot record on the VCR. He has the Toshiba hooked up to Line 1 on the Sony, as there aren't any more free connections on the TV.
Could you please tell me the proper procedure to correct this problem?
Thank you for your help.
I talked to some very nice people at tech support 1-866-583-7353 and found out that my satellite reciever must be set to 480i, which of course is a pain since like I wanted High Definition. The composite a/v cables (red, white,yellow) are not high def and are part of the reason. I have TiVo and when recording a movie from TiVo to the DVD it states there as well to set the reciever at 480i. Once I did this I was able to record from the Sat to the DVD. I did a quick review and I couldn't find a combo set or just a dvd recorder that has component video cable (red,blue,green) or HDMI inputs at all, I'm thinking that all would have to be recorded at 480i.

SOURCE: dvd/vcr without cable hook-up
If ** cable TV hookups exists, then the only inputs you can use are the line-in along with audio left/right. You've probably got a slew of output connections. Your unit does **t contain a tuner (which would allow you to use a cable input). You need to have a cable box or other device (vcr/tv) that has outputs compatible with the input of your dvd/vcr. A lot of dvd/vcrs are that way. It actually saves you some $$ since most cable boxes (especially HDTV compatible) already have the required outputs on them.

if there are rca ports on the front of the vcr which are output, connect those to the tv input 3, the input to input connection is definitely not going to work...

I have managed to get a solution to this now. I have a region 4 as in Australia so depending on where you are you'll need to try the correct region. It worked for me first time. Point 4/ below my region code appeared in the top right corner for a couple of seconds not the top left! Once you've completed below turn the machine on again and stick in one of the dvds that would not work before.
1/Turn machine on without disc inside
2/Press menu button
3/Enter region code (See below for list)
4/A highlighted 'region area number' will appear in the upper left corner (some players)
5/Press 9 to change the region number to multi-regional
6/Turn machine off
R1 - 29334
R2 - 38767 or, 5 7 5 3 8
R3 - 56732
R4 - 76884
R5 - 53814
R6 - 24462
