You should record the show to your DVR when you are away/sleeping. Then you can record from your DVR to DVD via the Toshiba machine at your leisure. We did this successfully for many shows. I did not see any feature that would allow you to set a timer or anything, so make sure you just record it to your DVR first.

Whether or not the TV is turned on doesn't affect timer recording.

In order to record when you're not there, you'll set the timer for the time you want the recorder to begin and end recording and, most importantly, you must have your satellite box turned on and set to the channel you want to record.

If you want more than one device hooked up to your TV buy an A/B switch. It has 2 inputs for vcrs or other picture sources and 1 out to the TV. It needs to be easily accessible because to switch between sources there is a small lever you push choosing the input.

The DVR620 doesn't have RF (antenna) inputs or outputs, so you won't be able to connect it to your TV.

I am currently using rca jacks. At the present I do not have a hdmi cable attached to my TV. I would assume it would work, but the quality of the vcr recorded picture will be poor compared to 1080p.

VHS has only 1 audio track, so when recording from DVD, ensure that the correct audio track is selected. It will play that audio track back through HDMI.
