    I have a Toshiba RD-XS32 about a year old now, and I've been very happy with it. However, I've not been able to persuade it to record audio-only -- eg radio from my AVR300. Any thoughts on how to make that happen?

    Thanks.

    Can't really help on what you want, however I have recorded onto DVD several freeview stations (ie Kerrang) and then if you have a pc extract the audio into whatever format you want - this is certainly one way.

    Regards

    I don't have the XS32, but I guess you can use the front panel audio-in sockets. As the machine may want an accompanying video signal, you'll have to get either a composite or s-video feed in also. Any source would do as you'll be ignoring the video. It may be worth a try without the video signal if you haven't done so already.
    I have downloads of the manuals - try page 37 of the Operations manual. You should be able to get a composite video feed from a TV scart and then you'd use a scart to RCA phono jacks converter lead. Make sure it's wired FROM scart TO phono so the correct scart pins are connected/switched. See

    Thanks -- I'll take a look at those possibilities.
