Customer reviews and ratings

Toshiba DVR20 Freeview DVD and VCR Recorder Combi. 4.3 5 109 118
Not easy! We bought this unit after reading reviews ...we expected it to be quite easy to set up, but it has taken us almost two weeks to even get it to play back DVDs!!! I think one problem is because we have a Tivo box it doesn't make it easy. We have now managed to record from the TV...... Next is copying old vhs tapes to DVD ......but need to sit and read the book again. We shall see!!! All in all a bit disappointed but I suppose when we get the hang of it it will be ok. 11 November 2014
Wasn't able to use this item as it turned out to be incompatible with my TV. I thought the instructions for connecting it could have been clearer too as I'm no techno geek.When I contacted Toshiba with a simple question, firstly it took about 4 days to reply and then when they did they said 'get intouch with Argos technical dept'!!!! I only needed a yes or no answer for goodness sake so this item is now back in store & I have no video/dvd player 10 November 2014
Not much choice There is not much choice nowadays if you want a machine to play your old videotapes and also family DVDs and record off the TV on either video or DVD. The Toshiba DVR20 does all this. My difficulty was in learning to work the thing, buttons on the remote and the screen messages being difficult for a dim old pensioner to suss out. My last combi, a Panasonic, was easier to work, but kept breaking down, and I'm not surprised they don't make it any more. I hope the Toshiba will prove more reliable. 05 November 2014
Versatile product People who have bought this product have either liked it a lot or found it unreliable, especially if bought mail order, so it may be too soon to say how good it is. So far I have it found it very good. Everything seems to work OK. The quality of picture on TV, DVD and video tape is all very good. It is quite complicated to use especially if you use it mainly for VCR tapes as it defaults to DVD, but the manual is very comprehensive and you are OK if you follow the instructions carefully. 27 October 2014
TOSHIBA DVR20 VCR COMBI The unit can be linked to old & new kit . The unit has av inputs & outputs + hmdi link. The unit can up scale to H D . You can record from tape to dvd . This will improve the quality of the recording . The menus are a no brainier. 14 October 2014

Hi there,

Thank you for your question.

I can confirm that as long as your LG TV has either a HDMI port or a SCART socket this should be compatible.

Thanks for using Argos Q&A.
