Question about Televison & Video
Just purchased Toshiba DVD Video Player & Video Cassette Recorder (SD-V295KU). It is working - turns on & off, drawer opens & closes. How do I assure it is set to channel 03? I don't see instructions in manual; couldn't find on their website. I don't know how to set it up!
It is not responding. I have hooked it up to Comcast Motorola DCT700 cable box, & Sylvania SST4192 TV. I simply want to be able to watch a DVD - nothing fancy!
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.

Unit must get the TV guide from an analog station. If cable company goes digital you loose the data. If the station that hosted TV guide goes digital you loose the data. This unit does not have a digital ATSC tuner only analog NTSC tuner. If you are still getting analog data there are a few capacitors on the power supply under the hard drive that bulge up and cause problems. They should be replaced with higher voltage rating types.

I have the same system, except for the TV, I have a project (that part doesn't matter).
From your Sat. go straight to your AV receiver
Again from you Sat. (all of the AV outputs are all live), go out from either 1 or 2 and go to your recorder Line 1 in.
From you AV receiver go to your TV.
All you have to do is hit record and you will record whichever channel you are on. I am having difficulty getting it set up as a PVR, but will figure it out sooner or later.
Hope this helped.

Chances are you've got your DVD player hooked to OUPUT jacks on the cable box, not inputs. I haven't yet seen a box that takes any kind of an input other than the cable line, but they will have RCA jacks for audio and video outputs on the back. So your cable channels are fine, but the DVD signal is hitting a dead end.
The only solution if your TV doesn't have RCA inputs for video and audio is to get an RF converter (around $10-$20). This takes the A/V signals from your DVD and turns them into a channel 3 or 4 signal that connects to your TV's antenna input.
The converter also has a connector on the back for the cable coming from the cable box, since you'll have to disconnect that from the TV. When the DVD player is off, the cable box signal gets passed to the TV as normal. Turn on the DVD player and the RF converter switches on; put your set on channel 3 or 4 and you'll see your video.
One final thing: The converter will need an AC outlet for its power adapter or power cord, so make sure you have a spare. If you don't already have your TV and DVD player connected to one, this would be a good time to pick up a surge-protector outlet strip. Then not only will you have enough outlets, you'll be protecting your equipment as well.
If this solution has given you what you need, please take a moment to rate it appropriately. And thanks for asking here!

Testimonial: "Thank you. I forgot to thank you when I first read this response. Works fine now though :)"
With most Toshibas, you could un-plug them and leave it for either 10minutes or 30minutes and it would reset. strange, I know. give it a try.
I also found this when working on a similar problem with your player, it may be relevant -you could try pressing the power button and another button..
sorry, I don't have one in front of me to test..
[[power off the player
hit the power button and immediately hold the HDMI select button
the 3 HD indicator lights will cycle and then pushing the HDMI select button will move through the resolutions.]]
