I wanted to copy my VCR tapes to DVD. The directions were very easy to follow and the machine was very easy to use. I was going to have an outside source copy my home movies for me, but it would have cost me hundreds of dollars. The Toshiba Black DVD VCR Combo Recorder - DVR620 did exactly what I wanted to do at an economical cost.

Bought this 3 weeks ago when the VCR portion of our old SONY two in one CD/VCR player died. Overall, there isn't much choice out there if you still want VCR capability.

Hoped to hook it up quickly to our old Dish Satellite Box and a not-too-old TV (3 years). Immediately, I was confronted that the Toshiba unit did not have a coaxial input/output. Both of my other two units were coaxial as their primary inputs and outputs. I had to go shopping for S-Video connection for TV. Used the stereo-type coaxials (L, R, and Video) for satellite box connections. This worked, however for any signal to get to my TV, the DVD must be on and if there is a DVD in the compartment, the motor is always spinning it. Supplimental instructions gave instructions on how to hook this up in parallel. I'm not really wanting to do this, because it doubles the number of wires. Not sure what will be harder to train my family to do: turn off the DVD when done watching TV or using alternate video inputs on the TV.

Previous user's comments about no buttons on the machine and only being able to use the remote is not accurate. They obviously never flipped the plastic cover down or read the instructions.

DVD's take longer to load than my old SONY unit. This may be due to more acceptable formats. My old SONY was having trouble running newly made DVD's. Not sure of the format issues, but this machine can play them all with no problems.

One good benefit of using the S-Video connection is a better TV quality. Didn't know it was a problem until I used the new connection. This is a strong argument for not connecting in parallel.

Remote control is intuitive. My wife quickly picked up on the changes.

I have yet to try to DVR. I'm still stuck in old recording habits by recording onto VHS the TV shows I desire to view. Will take the jump soon, though.

Darn, I'm soundling like my dad learning to use a computer in the '80s. Feeling old. Thanks Toshiba.

    Comments about Toshiba Black DVD/VCR Player And Recorder:

    This is a great machine, plays all your old VHS tapes plus copies/records them on a DVD if you wish. The only draw back is that it will not copy your old VHS movies due to the copyright signal on the tapes that prevents it from copying. However, there is a device that you can buy to bypass the copyright signal but I'm not sure if it's legal or not!

      VCR / DVD buttons on remote, are very unattractively marked,hard to see,and should be much more brightly(and attractively) indicated.

      Response time to SOME remote control commands,is relatively slow,leading unaware,impatient, new users,to believe that unit is defective (I gave one of these as a gift,and that actually happened),so should be mentioned in owner's manual right up front. Otherwise,so far,a great set.

      Comments about Toshiba Black DVD/VCR Player And Recorder:

      First, the service @ ABT is ALWAYS wonderful! Think this came in 1 day, and that was at the height of Christmas shopping/shipping!!
      Now for the product. I use this to copy movies & specials i recorded up to 20 YEARS ago (as in one time only & no hope it's ever gonna be for sale) on a VCR and it upgrades the pix as if it was just being recorded! Use if for series, specials or free weekends.
      Think ahead; got little kids? A moment in history happens, record it so when they're older they can see the reality, not the "edited" version.
      The ONLY thing i wish they'd add to the unit is a pause button so you could cut the commercials... ah, well ~ little in life is perfect. Maybe on a model yet to come.
      Buy it, you WILL NOT regret it!

        I placed my order with Mark Fijalkiewicz on Tuesday, September 16, 2014. He said it should arrive in 3-5 days. The DVD/VHS Recorder arrived on Friday, September 18, 2014. What a wonderful surprise! It arrived in excellent condition! Mark was a very courteous and respectful customer service representative. I really appreciated the kind way in which he helped me with my order. Exceptional!!!

        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.
