Question about Toshiba DVR670 Player

2 Answers

I'm thinking of buying this VCR/DVR combo - Toshiba DVR670 -- but first I want to know if you can program the VCR recording timer using time span information -- not just those codes for programs you find in the TV guide. I don't get a TV guide. But I can see the time the program starts and stops on my cable menu. I want to set the timer using the time, not those codes. Can I do that on this VCR recorder?

Usually, depending on the source, or channel, timer recording can be performed on a VCR; even this model.

The short answer is YES - you can record cable times or set manual scheduled recordings on this VCR. It depends on the channel(s) available in your area, and/or the source (such as cable receivers/set top boxes, etc.) which are intended to be recorded.

The DVR670 only works for about 6 months then errors out. These units are JUNK. Dont waste your money on any Toshiba products. Their customer support sucks.

It will not timer-record some channels such as Channel 5-2 and 9-2. I can manually record on those channels, but when I try to record using timer programming, it won't record those channels.


If Toshiba offered you a refund due to the alleged bug, I doubt that there is a work around to the problem. If it had been a regular tuner I would have suggested that you scan all the channels to commit them to memory.

The problem basically is that those channels re not in the recorder's tuner memory. You can enter them manually but when you try to use the programming the unit will not do it since channels are not in memory. Check your manual to see if there is a provision for getting channels into the memory of the unit. Don't hold your breath.

We recently connected to Direct TV...I want to transfer some old western TV Shows I recorded on my Direct TV DVR Recorder to VCR Tape. I was told by the people at Direct TV that I would need to contact you...


You can try this: Connect your DirecTv to VCR with Red/White/Yellow cables. Then the VCR to your TV with the same type of cables. Make sure the VCR is set to the video input, not the tuner. Turn your TV to the correct video input. Get the program ready on the DVR as if you were going to watch it. Press record on the VCR and then play on the DVR. At the end of the program, press stop on both. You may have a problem with the video recording properly. Some stations broadcast with copyright protection.

I have a Toshiba VCR w522 and would like to record a program previously recorded from a DVR. Is it possible?


If the vcr has two scarts connect the DVR player to one and select that imput. Watch the program using the the other scart connected to the TV. Press record on the vcr and then start the DVR player going. If it doesn't have two scarts use the front panel jacks to connect the DVR player.
The only time you won't be able to record a program is if somekind of anti-copy system is employed.

First make sure the internal clock is setup correctly observing am/pm. Then try recording something so you can watch the operation to see if it works. Make sure you have a tape you can record on and also make sure the write protect tab has not been removed from the front lower corner of the tape. Good Luck! I hope you now have success!

Im thinking that maybe you a have a timer recording set. The whole unit wont function at all if you turn it on via power button (remote or unit). There should be a button at the top of the remote called 'timer set' pressing this will disable that mode and allow complete use of everything. but make sure u press timer set again when powering down, otherwise simply turning off the machine will leave the timer recording disabled.
