U have cables or satallites tvs services hook up.U can record VHS tapes and used any DVD/VCR recorder machines hook up.Because the pay services does convert the signal back to analoge tv signal so u can record VHS tapes.

Front Display is saying DR-2 and will not let me use remote to control anything...only thing I can do is shut power off with front panel..I have unplug from outlet and let set for 30mins and plugged back...

I received an attachement from the Toshiba Repair folks several months ago, when we had the same problem. To resolve it, do the following:

While pressing the Easy Navi button on the remote, press 2. The remote control mode will be set to DR 2, which is what the recorder is telling you it is set to.

We encountered this problem for the first time, for no apparent reason. It happened again today, after the operator dropped the remote. This fix worked both times.

Don't know how to set channels w/new cable box.

Use channel 3 or 4 or hook up the RCA jacks. If you use 3 or 4 leave it on that channel and use the cable box to change channel. Use RCA jacks (best) turn the channel on the recorder to line in ether LINE1 or LINE2 with one you plug it up to and leave it on that channel.

Need an RCA Adapter for a TOSHIBA D-VR610KU

If the RF Modulator will convert a coaxial signal to an RCA output signal, fine however, you still need a tuner to select the channel on the TV you want to record. This unit is primarily for dubbing or copying DVD to VCR or VCR to DVD. There is no tuner in the unit to get the cable signal. Try hooking up an additional VCR, that probably has a tuner in it and use the RCA out of the 2nd unit to the RCA in of the Toshiba. Hook the coax to the input coax jack of the 2nd then RCA out to RCA in of the Toshiba. Choose what channell you want to record on the 2nd unit. You may have to choose Auxillary mode on the toshiba the press instant record on the Toshiba. Again, this unit is a Player or Dubber. Not designed to record TV shows without an external tuner. I hope this helps. If you use a 2nd VCR just to get the TV Signal, you won't need the modulator.

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.

Toshiba dvr will load some dvds & not others

My machine has also done this since it was new. I was just about to bring it in for repair when I thought I would try one more thing. I turned on the recorder. I put in the movie that would not play and let it load (of course it would not load). I pushed the on/off button on the recorder and held it down until the "wait" message came up on the display. After the message disappeared I turned the recorder back on. To my surprise the movie loaded and played. I tried all the other movies I had trouble with and they also played. I hope this helps. I saved my self over 200 dollars in repair bills. I was quite surprised at the lack of help from toshiba.
