I had a similar problem. After disconnecting my devices and rehooking them again. Was that you may need to reset the DVR to channel 3 or 4. Or go to settings and see if you see a a menu that reads "Reset to Factory Setings." Try clicking that and see if you can record from you DVR after you do it. It may be that your DVR was on the wrong channel of the DVR. I found this true with mine, it was set to channel 3. How it jumped to that channel is a mystery. Make suire your connections are correct in the back of the T.V. Red to Red, yellow to yellow, or white to white and "In to out." On the back of my HDTV it was so different. The cables from my DVR were R, Y, W. But on the back of my T.V. it was Green to Yellow, Red to Red Stereo, and White to White Mono. My instructions did not match what I had on my T.V. that is why it is very confusing. And 2. the instructions are too small for me to read. I called Customer Support for Toshiba T.V.'s. They told me to call Customer Support for Toshiba DVR. Which I did and they were also not able to help me. Then they told me to call Toshiba Customer Service for Toshiba DVR. I went back and forth. I did mention that before or the old way used to be that when you had an old VCR, you always had to put or switch the channel to Channel to 3 or 4. But they did not know what I was talking about.
I finally reset the DVR to factory settings myself. I am almost 100 per cent sure that it will work now. Good luck, and I sure hope this helps.

Sounds like you recorded from a camcorder attached to AV2 (front of DVD player). Press the STOP button, then open the menu and finalize the disk.

SOURCE: Unlock Toshiba DVD Video Recorder

In this recorder the region is hard coded in the firmware and cannot be changed thru customer commands. Unfortunately there is no region free firmware so if you would be able to obtain one all you would manage is to change the present region to another one.

Hello

Secure the audio/video connection cables that attach the source device you are trying to record from. Try this step if you do not see a picture when trying to record from a source device onto the Device. After unplugging the cable and checking for any damage, plug the cables back and attempt to record the content to see if this resolved the problem.

Secure the power cable that attaches the device to an electrical source if the unit will not power on or if it intermittently loses power. If you think a malfunctioning surge protector may be at fault, you can 'bypass' the surge protector by plugging the device into an electrical outlet. Replace any surge protectors that appear to be malfunctioning and have an electrician examine any outlets that appear to be "dead."

Insert the disc that you would like to record

Press the "Edit Menu" button on the remote control while playing the disc or while playback is stopped.

Use the up and down arrows to select "DVD-Video Finalizing" in the on-screen menu, then press "Enter."

Under "Menu Create" select "None," then under "After play final title" select "Stop." Select "Next" to move to the next screen.

Select "Writing" in the lower right of the screen.

Select "Yes" or "No" to tell the machine if you want it to power down when finalizing is complete. Finalizing will then begin and a progress bar will appear.

Contact your electronics dealer or the Toshiba service department if the disc still does not finalize.

I'm trying to hookup my Toshiba DR430KU to an older tv that require an RF Modulator. I get a skewded sideways picture. Does This DVDR compatable with a RF Modulator?


Probably not. Better picture results are achieved with either S-Video, standard RCA AV cable (yellow-white-red), or YUV component cable (red-green-blue) (component output does not have audio - this requires extra cable to be connected). The video via either one of these 'AV' connections is stunning (based on a standard 16:9 LCD TV using a Panasonic DVD recorder).

RF tends to be lower quality - as opposed to AV/digital input. AV input/YUV component handles digital better. No one connects their DVD devices to their TV via RF (either directly to the antenna socket or with a modulator/attenuator) anyway. Because a VCR is mostly analogue, it will work fine with an RF connection, but DVD is digital, and so won't work as well, if at all.

RF also goes through the tuner in a TV, creating cross-interference, whereas AV is a direct input and is separate to the tuner.

I would say an RF modulator would not be designed to handle the output frequency that your DVD device generates. Throw the modulator out, or perhaps get another TV, or use RCA cables instead if the TV has AV inputs. Whichever is cheaper and easier, but don't use RF accessories except a standard antenna if/as required.
