No, this recorder doesn't have a microphone input. In order to do what you are wanting to do you would need a microphone mixer to connect to the recorder, then you would plug your mic into the mixer.

Question

I have a DKR40KU and it now has stopped finalizing discs. Is it possible to find another recorder to finalize?

Also want to know if you can make compatible and then switch to another DVD recorder? Or maybe tell me where I can go to ask someone how to make it start to finalize disks again.

Once material is recordeed on a machine it can't be finalized or played on another machine. Some of the earlier units had a few "querks". One of those "querks" was that you can't record from the DVR to the DVD recorder with timed events entered in the machine.
Call tech support. Maybe they can shed some light on your problem.

Yes, but you will need a separate VHS player. With the available inputs on front and rear, you can connect a VCR to the DVD Recorder to copy old tapes you want to preserve on DVD.

The DR430 doesn't have a tuner, so you can only record the signal from the A/V inputs. The DR570 has the digital tuner built in, but watching one show while recording another would require two tuners, so it won't guve you the capability you're looking for.

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.

You need to use the RCA cables that connect the TV to the machine. See the drawing in the box.

If you're recording any channels at all, you have the connections set up correctly.

I suspect the problem you're having recording specific channels is the result of copy protection. If they choose, content owners can copy protect their programs to prevent copies from being made. Usually you'll find this on premium channels, but any program can potentially be copy protected.
