Toshiba DVR20KB – 2-in-1 DVD & VCR recorder – DVD players : Great very happy with this is the second one

Not many of these left and as i still use video tapes, it is great. This is the second one i have bought.

This product is working on old technology. It is not possible to set a program to record from within the epg without the unit switching off into standby when the timer button is pressed. This is the way vcr’s used to operate in the 1980’s. Failure to press the timer button results in nothing being recorded. Considering we are all used to using sky and freeview +. This toshiba device leaves a lot to be desired in the technology stakes. I have been unable to delete a recording from the dvd using the menu system. So once again this device let’s its self down dramatically. But maybe i am missing something. Picture quality from tape and dvd playback is good enough as is the picture from the tv receiver.

Easy to set up and plays both dvds and videos perfectly. Haven’t had time to try transfer of video to dvd but i’m sure that will work fine.

Its quite complicated to operate vhs to disc but the quality is quite good on the recording. It seems good value for money.
