I don't know the specifics for the Toshiba unit, but the current STBs can't output a HD and SD signal at the same time. Somewhere you have to be able to tell the STB to change to SD which will output a signal via s-video to your VCR. I use the DTC-100 which allows you to change via remote. I assume there is something similar for the Toshiba. You get sound from both outputs at the same time so you get sound on the VCR, just no the picture. You get a picture via component cable because the STB is outputting HD.
