Does only half of what it should

 

When I first got this unit, I tested the recording features right away. I was fairly pleased with the overall quality of the recording quality. However, when I went to play a professional DVD, I noticed very poor playback quality. I tested the unit...

Product Specifications

Finally! It's never been easier to record, play and store multi-media content on DVD - no need to buy separate components. The Gateway AR-230 DVD Recorder has it all in one package. Recording TV shows is just one click away with the easy-to-use AR-230. Featuring high-quality recording of up to 6 hours (on a 4.7 GB disc), it's much easier to record the shows you want to watch without spending a lot of time figuring out how to set it up properly. And once you've watched your shows, you can erase the DVD and use it to record again. With your DVD Recorder, you can save all of your family memories on a DVD that can last up to 100 years. The IEEE 1394 Input allows you to burn DVD videos directly from your camcorder, while the RCA Input allows you to make perfect copies of your home videos from your VCR onto non-degradable, digital quality DVDs. And when you want to sit back and enjoy the show, progressive scan DVD playback and multi-channel Dolby Digital (AC-3) make your movies come to life. You can also play audio CDs, MP3s and JPEGs. The on-screen display (OSD) lets you adjust settings and select options for your DVD recorder. For example, you can specify your TV type, set parental controls, and specify you audio type. Component video outputs deliver optimal color to compatible televisions with component video inputs, which provide the best digital recording quality from compatible TVs. Plus, you'll get the extra benefit of improved TV picture with noise filtering. Simple, easy, yet feature-rich solutions make your set-up a hassle-free process.
