"Elderly person needed something that played VHS tapes and the Toshiba unit did the job. I saw the one review where they dinged the unit because the DVD quit playing ... what did you expect - DVD players are cheap and it's a dying format. This unit did a good job. If you have a thousand VHS tapes and need something to play them on --- this works!"

"I have or have had the above 2 items and they both worked perfectly, I still use by television and just recently my dvd/vcr combo went out and I am getting ready to order a new one. I also have a blue-ray player by Toshiba. So to me Toshiba is there when you need it and others just don't even get it. Dee"

"I have been using the Sony DVD+RW and have recorded about 20 DVD's this week with no problems using the XP mode for the best quality. I just followed the below procedure on VHS to DVD dubbing and make sure you push the Rec Mode button to the left of the REC button at that step. If the DVD+RW is unformatted it will format when inserted. It will try to load and then go into the Format process. If you have used this DVD on your computer, Format it in Explorer and then put it into the Toshiba and go into Setup: DVD Menu: Format and Format the DVD again. And when you have completed your DVD, perform the Finalize procedure if you are going to use the DVD on another device. I have deleted and edited the Titles without any problems. With all of the procedures I have done, I have not received any errors. On the initial setup in the beginning I made a few changes from default below due to the TV and sound system that I have. I'm using HDMI to the TV and RCA from the Toshiba L1 to the Comcast cable unit. I have had this unit for a couple of years now and have had no problems. Playback: PCM-96kHz, Dolby-PCM Video: Progressive-On Recording: PCM, Disc Full-On, End of Timer Rec-On, Aspect Ratio Video Mode-16:9, Make Recording Compatible-On HDMI: RGB Range-Enhanced Dubbing VHS to DVD on DVR620KU Model Before beginning the steps below, press Setup on your remote.

Press the down arrow key on the remote (below the Enter button# until Recording is highlighted, then press Enter. Auto Chapter should be highlighted. Down arrow to Dubbing Mode. The VCR->DVD mode should be checked. If not, down arrow to it and press enter. Then press return. Keep pressing return till you are back at Setup. For VHS->DVD dubbing: 1. Press DVD button on remote #near bottom right, with green background#. 2. Press Open/Close on remote. DVD Caddy door should open. 3. Place DVD on caddy. 4. Press Open/Close on remote. DVD Caddy door should close. Let the loading of the DVD complete. 5. Press the REC MODE button on the remote repeatedly until you see the record mode that you want to use. Those can be XP, SP, LP, EP, or SLP. 6. Press VCR button on remote #to the left of DVD button, with orange background#. 7. Insert VHS tape into VHS slot. 8. Press Play on remote. VHS should start playing and its playback be visible on your TV. Press Pause on the remote. 9. Press the DVD button on the remote again. 10. Press the Dubbing button on the remote #near bottom left#. DVD recording should then begin, recording from VHS, and the VHS tape should resume playing. 11. Press Stop on the remote to stop recording. If you've tried this and it's not working, explain what is going wrong at what step. Note that if the VHS tape is copy protected #i.e. a commercial tape instead of your own recording) then you may not be able to do the VHS->DVD dubbing."

"Bought this unit .. took it home .. installed the three cables to red-white-yellow on the new 46" TV I bought (Panasonic). Turned it on. Put both a VCR and a video Disc to see if it worked. Both videos played perfectly. What more could you want??"

"I love this product, it looks sharp, clean and easy to use. Problems lie in the S-video, it sends out but the [s video-in] port doesn't work at all, everything else does tho. Problem 2 is that the DVR cant be controlled threw HDMI like newer HDMI connected products, witch isn't a big shock but a little disappointing. Other than that its an Excellent piece of equipment. P.S. Also the Unit will not Dub protected VHS Tapes to DVD it sends an error message and stops.recording."

DVR620 DVD Recorder March 05, 2012

"I've recorded well over 100 DVDs on my 620 in 15 months and cannot recall a DVD record failure on any brand. I would have given 5 stars as a DVD only recorder. The VCR dub to DVD is poorly conceived -you can't pause the DVD during recording, and the recording quality is poor if the tracking has problems."

"Have copied 20 vcr(compact) to dvd -r discs without any problems. Like a few others I did push the rec button instead of the rec mode button prior to pushing the dubbing button. Other than that all went well. Hoping for a long life from this unit."

"Bought this machine for dubbing family VCR tapes to DVDs. Follow 9 step instructions from manual page 50-51 to setup the dubbing procedure. Anyway, I just let it run until it done. Check recorded DVD as good as the VCR tape. Don’t know why other users have issues. May perhaps pressed the wrong button at step 7. It happened when I first use it, the REC button just next to the REC MODE button!!"
