I've tried a number of JVC, TDK, Sony, and Memorex, DVD-R, DVD+R, DVD-RW, and DVD-RW CPRM and never ran across a kind it wouldn't record on. I was told that +R and +RW won't play in some DVD players, but I haven't tried it.

This model is not internet-connected, so will not stream Netflix. If you don't need to record, check out the Toshiba Blu-Ray models. Most Have the Netflix capability.

If you have a VHS player to play the VHS tapes to send the signal to be recorded, and the VHS tapes are not copy protected, then yes, it will record your video to DVD.

You can then play the DVD back in any DVD player.

Question

What CPRM Discs can I buy?

To record most things from cable it requires DVD-RW CPRM-compatible discs. I cannot find them _ANYWHERE_ online except in Japan, and they won't ship to USA.
What are some brands and model numbers of blank discs that are CPRM compatible?

I used DVD-RW and they work fine. They are are available on line from many places with no trouble. I purchased from Nuwegg.com but I bet you can find them on the Walmart site too. Nothing special they don't even have to be rewrite if you don't want. Something to be aware of though, with this and other Toshiba recorders I have found they delete the title but the not the space, so you never get it back.
Be sure you have connected properly too.

It depends.

Whether or not a program can be recorded to DVD depends on the owner of the content. The owner can prevent duplication by putting copy-protection encoding in the video feed. So, it will vary by the program.

The inputs are standard RCA phono plug Audio/Video jacks, and S-Video input for better picture. The outputs are the same plus HMDI for HDTVs, and RGB outputs for projection TVs. While it may record in Video or S-Video, the output does upgrade the signal to 1080p HDMI for HDTVs, but I haven't used the HDMI output yet. It doesn't have an internal TV tuner, which you shouldn't need with a cable/satellite box.

You can use the HDMI cable to connect the player to your TV so you can watch your DVDs.

To record TV, you will have to have an external source such as a cable box or satellite receiver. There is no tuner built into the player.

The Toshiba D-R570 recorder has the built-in digital tuners. While it was discontinued recently, you can still Google it to find it on-line. Walmart isn't selling this model.

If you mean watching the same program/show as you're recording, then YES. If you mean watching a different program/show than the one you're recording, it depends. Most tvs now have multiple inputs. You can switch over to a different input.

If I understand the question correctly, you're asking if you can watch a program as you're recording it to the DVD. You can view a program while recording it.

If I misunderstood the question, please re-post it with more detail.

The DR430 has Composite Video and S-Video inputs, so if your Fios box has one of those outputs, you can record programs.

Be aware that content owners have the option of restricting copying of their programs, so you may not be able to record some programs.
