This could solve problem
1. Select Menu, Set-Up, Help.
2. Press the Green button on the remote control.
3. This shows the Advanced Information screen.
4. Now press the Blue button which will prompt you with a warning box.
5. Now press the Green button if you wish to proceed.
6. The DTR will take around a minute to complete the reformat, and will then automatically restart itself.
Next do a channel rescan.

If you have different input options on your TVs, you could run the second TV with the Y, Pb,Pr component outputs along with the analog audio from the STB. However, remember the STB will only support ONE output video format. So both TV will have to be set to the same video format (720p, 1080i, 480p, etc)

remove power at plug socket
when you plug power back in start to repeatedly press the standby button on the front of the box
when this causes the orange light to stop flashing press the buttons up, down, left, right
(these buttons are on the front of the box not the remote)

this causes the hard drive to reset itself
WARNING
this will cause the box to completely reformat meaning you will loose all data recorded

but after this reset the box will work as new

I work for a cable company that has this exact cable box. in our system we choose not to actvate this option. cable companys go to motorola and give them the exact features that they want the box to perform. most cable companys won't have that feature added mainly 1 due to cost and 2 if you have that type of box it probably has on demand available, so they want you to rent a movie then to play it on dvd.in my opinion straight to the tv is better anyway, the less devices you run the video signal through the less problems you will have . all those ports on the back of the box is standard for the 6412, but are not always actvated.

Your not going to be able to connect in series (not sure if thats your goal) since your limited by the type of connections you can use. Your receiver is going to have to be switched depeneding on what source you want to listen too. DVR, DVD, etc. HDMI is going to important for your TV connection. Radio Shack has cheap HDMI cables.
So... connect HDMI from DVR to HDTV this will give you sound and picture to TV. Connect DVR optical or coaxial ( RCA if you dont care about surround) to Receiver to give you DVR sound thru Receiver input.
Connect DVD to receiver via optical/coaxial/rca for DVD sound thru receiver (again RCA is not recommended for surround).
Connect Component video to HDTV(or HDMI if TV has second HDMI input) to give you video from DVD.
Connect Yellow video or S-video from DVR to DVD recorder input to allow recording from DVR. Also connect red/white audio to (same) DVD input.
That should cover it.

Check the manual to see if there is an automatic code search feature for your Toshiba. It may be easier to program your directv remote to operate your toshiba. You may not get the full use from either remote, but its worth a shot

The clock is set by the cable co. There is no manual way to change it.

I also have a 32' Protron LCD TV and had the same problem. Try this, it worked for me.
Push the TV button once, then press and hold the Setup button untill TV button flashes two times (aboutut 3-5 seconds) now enter this code 10178. TV button should flash two more times. Now your remote should work your TV. Good Luck!!!
