Toshiba DVR620.. I recenetly bought one, and can't for the life of me, figure out how to record TV shows (mainly sport events) with it. The guy at Best buy said I wouldnt need a tuner because I'd be watching the show while recording it. So is there a trick to it? Or do I need the tuner? And if I do, what tuner should I get? I have an older TV, its not an HD LCD or anything like that. It just has basic RCA cable ports and the basic cable port. (I have basic cable by the way, no Directv or anything like that.)
Disconnect the RCA plugs that come out of your cable box, from your TV and plug them into the INPUT jacks on the back of your Toshiba - this is the L1 input. Now plug the output jacks from the Toshiba into your TV - color coded RED, WHITE, and YELLOW. Turn on the Toshiba and use the remote to switch to L1 - button at very top left INPUT SELECT.
to vcr tape... should work if you set the time in setup, and the record times in the list. on page 39 of the owners manual has the timer recording.. 1. connect external tuner to L1 or L2 set output video signals 2. don't change the external channel while recording, you can't do both 3. check the clock setting for accuracy start time 4. insert tape to record to... i haven't tried going to dvd 5. set record time to 2 minutes before what you want to record
timer program (up to six different schedules) a. create a named timer program ie BsketBall b. current date time c recording length of time ie 2 hrs d. timer program list
