Consumer review by: silverlage (

Sent in twice for repair within 9 months.


I run my small video conversion business using this machine in a major way. I am very unhappy that I have had to send the machine in twice for repairs and I haven't even had it for 9 months. Both issues were major. The S-VHS side stopped working first...

I think this machine is normally a solid machine with a great s-vid picture

Not very user friendly. Speaking to a live person at JVC is a very taxing experience. Should not be considered a professional machine

Product Specifications

If you ever come across a need to make recordings of a single source on both DVD disc and S-VHS tape simultaneously, the SR-MV45 has a solution. The Simultaneous Recording function can record programs on both DVD and VCR decks from the same input source. Additionally, it allows recordings from two different programs on two separate media. The Auto Repeat function is very convenient when constant or repeated video playback is required such as when DVD discs are used for company receptions or storefront demos. Ideal for school track and field events, Live Memory function lets you playback scenes to check any performance. With the DVD-RAM's rewriting capability, video can be recorded from a camcorder to the DVD-RAM, enabling simultaneous recording and playback. Viewing missed scenes will not interrupt the recording. The Live Check function displays real-time images in a sub-window. A remote input terminal allows connection of a wired remote control unit. This is convenient if you need to control the unit from a distance. A wide range of functions is accessible.
