20 Most Recent Toshiba RD-XS35 DVD Recorder/HDD Recorder Questions & Answers


Remote control code

The remote control for your DVR has the capability to control 2 additional DVRs in addition to the one that you currently have. In order for the remote control to work with your DVR, you will need to make certain both of them are talking on the same frequency. If you press the remote control and the front of your unit says DR2, that means that you need to have your remote on DR2 as well so that it can operate the DVR. To set your remote to DR2, you will need to make sure the unit is off then you will need to press and hold down the SETUP button and while you are holding this button down, press the number 2 button. Your remote is now set to DR2.

Good luck...

Will not power up but

I changed my IR code by accident and now nothing works. I can not get back to the IR 1 code. Everytime I hit a button the DR3 appears but nothing works. How could I fix this.

Can I use a HD receiver as input for the Toshiba

Yes you can record any TV show HD or SD, however it depends on what connections you use and what the recorder does with the input signals. You can record HD shows but not in HD resolution if you connect using composite video (yellow RCA cable) you just get a down-converted resolution, probably 480. You must use a HDMI or a component video connection for HD BUT if the recorder cannot record HD video, it should just record it in SD resolution but it should record the input signal. DVD is not HD, you would have to go to Blu-ray for HD and there are not many Blu-ray recorders around. The hard drive has the potential to record in HD but the recorder would have to process HD signals and you would have to connect with HDMI or component video. I would say your Toshiba will record an HD show but in SD resolution. I don't think the recorder has an HDMI input or a component video input. Just composite and S-video inputs. To actually record in HD you should look at another recorder.

I accidentally put it on

This is also my problem, but I solved it 4 month ago but it did it again and I forgot. The answer was on page 54 in manual but there is no pg 54 on line?. Anyway as I remember the jest of it was that the remote don't care what drive it's on as long as the remote is on the same drive as the recorder. So when your recorder is saying DR-3 it's saying that what the remote is on DR-3 and you need to change the remote to DR-2...which it will work...how...I forgot it was so simple it was to buttons..hold one and toggle back and forth but I can't remember..sorry

Front Display is saying DR-2

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.
