    The machine could only send people or things back to a PARALLEL timeline and as such no actions taken in the past can change their future. However there is a major logic error with this as Darien Lambert would communicate with his timeline via personal ads in the newspaper and they would somehow receive them and send messages back to him via the Trax machine. If it were a parallel timeline, then should they not be able to receive the messages?

Parallel future, I guess. He's just lucky that his parallel future is similar enough to what he came from that he gets answers to his queries. Any idea how they were reading personal ads placed in the past?

    Also Darien would at times nudge events in the 20th century based on his future knowledge. One time he saved a politician who in his timeline would become the first black President. At the end of the episode Lambert called him "Mr. President" and left his office, the guy paused and then looked out the window at the White House.......

I guess here he doesn't know for sure this guy Lambert will be president in the parallel timeline he's now a part of. However, he seems to have nudged things in the direction he favors.
