I have had this for about a year!

Mark, Toshiba
1 week ago
  • Summary: I bought my Toshiba DVR620 because I was tired of the Magnavox units breaking down. I have had about 5 of them in about 10 years counting two TV's. I bought the Toshiba because I have had good luck with Toshiba products in the past and I still needed a machine that I could use to convert VHS tapes to DVD's. I have had trouble with tracking the tapes in SP. It tracks other speeds but not in SP which most of my tapes are recorded in.

VHS to DVD - Recording solved

Jim, Toshiba
12 November 2014
  • Summary: I had written a previous review of this product and expressed the difficulty in recording VHS to DVD. After reading entries on the community forum, I discovered, that I had to press "Input Select" and choose L1. That information was left out of the "steps to follow" in the user manual. But now, VHS to DVD recording is working great!

Unable to Dub VHS to DVD

Jim, Toshiba
12 November 2014
  • Summary: Con: Tried to copy VHS tape of (1994) 20th high school reunion to DVD. Followed all steps including those written by other reviewers here. When I press "Dubbing" in Step 8, the only thing displayed on the TV is a red circle with an arrow through it. I have tried multiple brands of DVD's (DVD+R, DVD-R, DVD+RW, etc.) without success. Very disappointing. Pro: It does "play" VHS tapes and DVD's very well.

Solution to dvd simple

Jimbo, Toshiba
22 September 2014
  • Summary: I had an issue with the dvr being "stuck" in vcr mode after timer recording a television show. I could not get the dvr to respond to any remote command and it was stuck in vcr mode. I finally figured out that I had to press the "timer set" button once and then press the "dvr" button. The dvr then worked as intended.

  • Excerpt: I got this to dub my personal VHS tapes and church services from 2001-2006.The VCR does not play the tapes as well as other VCR's.I have a JVC Super VHS ET that plays them flawlessly so I know it is not the tapes.The DVD plays well and I like that I can put chapters on my DVDs while recording so i can skip to parts of the recording I want to see much faster.
  • Pros: Attractive Design, Easy To Set Up, Easy To Use
