We have really enjoyed this machine; however, yesterday both of our machines would not power up. The electricity was there, the internal fuses were ok, have not troubleshot further as yet. Very strange. We are on UPS.

I cannot believe all the complains I see here. I have my DR570 for 14 months now and all I can say are praises for it. It is the only one in the market that would output to HDMI not only DVD playback but also from composite analog or component video. The tuner is great too as you can either hook it up to an antenna for over the air ATSC reception and get HD reception, or hook it up to your basic cable and because it has a built in ClearQAM decoder it will also give you the local channels in HD. My DR570 is hooked up to my cable so I could record local channels in HD on DVD-RW disks which i could recycle over and over again. My only complain is about the specifications for the DR570 that is listed on this website. A lot are wrong (e.g. Multi-angle Display: No??? - oh yes it is available!!!) and a lot of good stuff on this unit has been omitted. I hope Toshiba could correct this. But with the unit itself, I am a happy camper. I am planning to buy another one so that I could record two shows at a time.
Y2K12 or planned obsolescense?

I have 3 of these units in use for over a year. While unnecessarily complex to use, they have worked satisfactorily. Until today. Woke up this morning, 1/1/12, to find all 3 machines are dead. Clock window displays only dashes and the machines will not power up, eject discs inside, nothing! Tried unplugging and replugging from the wall; no change! All 3 at once; this cannot be coincidence!! Anyone else have this happen?

the unit stops recording and gives E-6 and there is no way to find out what that is. The user guide should have a list of errors and what they mean.
