Only if your TV has a video/audio out to feed the recorder. Doubt that your TV has this feature.

No. While your TV has a digital tuner, it doesn't have the Video Out connection that would be required to do what you want. If you have a cable or satellite box, you can go from that to the recorder to record programs.

What type of discs do I need to record on the DVD player

answer 1
Any kind of DVD disc will do, there are several choices.

Go to the WALMART site and scroll down to SPECIFICATIONS you will find a link where you can view the manual in a PDF format and perhaps it can answer your question. I like the RW (Rewriteable) because once I have watched the program I can "erase" the content and use the disc over and over.

If you want to "save" the information on the disc. then get a different disc that will need to be "finalized" when you are finished recording so the disc can be played on a different player or on a computer.

Here is the link for the WALMART page.

Yes - but be patient with the instruction manual - it is confusing but once you set up, you just play, pause and start dubbing

Yes. The DVR620 will record DVD to VHS, or VHS to DVD.

Be aware that you cannot record any copy protected videos, in either direction. Most commercially produced videos have copy protection. If you created the videos you want to record, such as home movies, you're good to go.

Yes. Get your program on the TV & pause it. Make sure your Toshiba remote has selected the correct input/output that matches up to either the L1 (in the back of the unit) or L2 (on the front of the unit) where you have hooked up the RCA cables. Hit record & the TV pause at the same time.

As long as your DVR has either a Composite Video (Yellow connector) or S-Video output, you will be able to record from your DVR to a DVD.

Be aware that some programs have copy protection in them which will prevent you from making copies. You're most likely to run into this with movies broadcast on premium channels, but not all movies will prevent copies.

The DVR620 does have a timer function for recording, but since there is no tuner you must have the device you're recording from turned on and tuned to the desired channel.

You can't program the channel. You have to have the TV on AV and can't change or it will record what you change to. If you turn the TV of nothing records.

No, but it comes with cables to connect it to a TV. In my opinion you would want to see what is being recorded because if it is VHS to DVD and tape stops or breaks, you'll end up with a blank DVD and not know it.

It doesn't have to be connected to a TV to copy tapes or DVDs. Be aware that most commercial VHS tapes have copy protection embedded in the video signal that prevent duplication.

You set the machine recording speed for both the DVD and VHS. The maximum time on a DVD is 8 hours but the slower the speed the lower the quality of the playback picture.

The instructions that come with the machine will explain how to set up the speed and how long the recording will last.

It depends on the media you're recording on and the video quality selected, but the maximum recording time for both DVD and VHS is eight hours.
