    What strikes me as odd in regards to the update is the fact that many of us myself included, contacted Toshiba when this issue first surfaced. They were also kind enough to contact me and others by phone to let us know of the 7.2.1 update that was coming down.

    That to me implied, mistakenly on my part I suppose, that the burning problems would be addressed with this update.

    Oh well, I am just glad for this message board because I would have sent my unit back to Toshiba three or four times by now if I had thought it was a hardware only issue.

    Going to do a bunch of burning this weekend with my 1x-8x Staples DVD's again will report on it later.

    I'm considering purchasing a TX20 or TX60, and the IR cable is listed as included, but it's unclear whether a cable, or capability, is provided to connect directly to a cable boxes serial interface for changing channels. That would seem to be the ideal method. Can you guys confirm whether I can do this? Thanks.

    My TX20 came with a serial cable.

    Note, however, that there's no guarantee you'll be able to use serial control with your specific cable box.

    Definately report back...i agree with an earlier post in the week that using 4X or in my case 2X discs definately do improve the chance of a successful burn....what got me a bit suspicious on the 7.2.1 update is that it had "clipping protection"...which is a great function....but i am beginning to think that that was the exclusive reason for the update. I wish they would publish with each update exactly what changes were made...so we wouldn't be out here guessing whether and update is aimed at address A, B, C or not of the above. Isn't it standard procedure- with everybody but TIVO- that when new revisions of software come out...technical information is relaeased in some form identifying bugs it fixes, new functions, etc.

    My cable box is a Motorola and the serial connection is the only connection I have ever used, I believe it depends on ur cable company as to if they have activated that output.

    Well I burned 24 discs with only one coaster in this last bunch so far for me, this 50 pack of Staples DVD-rs which I got for less than 8 bucks has been the most consistent in regards to successfully burning.

    Hi I just bought my new Toshiba RS-TX20 at Sears tonight it hasn't even been unboxed yet. The question is I have a few pieces of equipment that I need to connect.
    1. Directv model DRD450RG
    2.Toshiba 5 disc DVD player SD-2715
    3. JVC RX-8010 Audio/ Video Control Receiver
    4. Toshiba VCR

    I have read some on the connections and would like to get the best one for the pieces that I have any help would be appreciated.

    Also I was reading and want to know about the disk can you only record on the DVD-R or DVD-RW? I have about 50 of the DVD+RW.
    Thanks there is alot of information on this site, not enough time in the day to read it all.

    I'd imagine you'd want:

    DirecTV receiver -> TiVo -> TV
    DVD player -> TV
    VCR -> TV (possibly using coax)
    TV -> A/V receiver (or feed individual components into the receiver, depending on how you like it)

    No DVD+R/RW on the Toshiba... DVD-R/RW only.

    I'm having trouble getting this unit to talk to my network. It's fine as long as I don't use any security measures, but if I put it on WEP security it can't find the DHCP server. Any ideas? I hate the idea of having my network naked to the world, as you can imagine. :mad:

    Does anyone else experience blurriness in the Live365 menus on your RS-TX unit? I never noticed it on my previous Series II unit. Not a biggie, just odd...

    I recently bought the Toshiba RS-TX20 and I am having a few problems. I have done everything and can't seem to figure out what to do.

    I am getting alot of the shows really dark and then when they aren't dark they are really fuzzy and choppy screens. I love the Tivo effects but the picture effects are horrible at time. I am to the point of returning the unit.
    I am connected to Directv and have a vcr connected. I even tried unconnecting the vcr. There aren't any connections on the back of my tv to connect the unit in direct so I am connected to the satellite and my a/v receiver.

    Any help would be greatly appreciated. Happy Holidays

    All coasters today. Unplugging is not helping.

    Where are the AGs when you need them? This is a message for all AGs to get together and sue Toshiba and TiVo on our behalf to fix the burn issue and refund us for all the coasters and purchase out units back if we choose to.

    Yep that is right. Your wireless network is working as designed. Now, let's think this through.

    Is there a place on your unit to enter any WEP configuraion???


    Answer is NO.


    So, no WEP support.


    Go wired if you are going to use WEP.

    Good new is that you'll have 30 days to return the item and get your money back.

    Does your wireless hardware adapter support WEP? Is your router properly configured? Are you using an alphanumeric or hexadecimal password (latter, preferably)? Is it correctly entered into the Wireless Settings of the TiVo?

    This is incorrect ... maybe you are thinking of WPA.

    TiVo software 4.x and above supports WEP. When you go through the wireless network setup, you can specify if your network uses a password or not (which is the generic way of asking if you use WEP). Then you can enter the alphanumeric or hex WEP key.

    If, after turning on WEP, the TiVo cannot connect to the network, maybe the OP is using MAC filtering or another method of preventing unauthorized devices from connecting to the network.
