Hi, I'm Nathan.
Sorry to hear that you're having trouble with this but I'll do my best to help you.

What is the model number of the tv and the toshiba?

To either Hx703 or Nx503 . Recorder model Tx 26Lxd80

Neither of those is valid.

Thank you,

what is the model of the dvd?

Are you using an aerial? Cable/satellite box?

Customer: replied 8 months ago.

Okay the aerial would have to be connected to the recorder,

the recorder can't pick anything up from the tv directly.

Customer: replied 8 months ago.
The aerial is also connected to the recorder. Unable to speak on phone because of severe deafness

Okay so make sure the recorder is set to the desired channel or view the guide through the recorder and set it to record from there please.

If no change, unplug power to the recorder for 5 minutes to restart it and see if that helps.

Thank you,
