Works Great!!!

 

overall a very good recorder, the hard drive is excellent same with the vcr, great for converting those old vhs tapes, also is pretty much a DVR with the HDD. Haven't had any problems yet

Hard Drive - 80GB ; Can take any kind of DVD format ; recording off of the tv is easy, just like a vcr ; pretty much a DVR

Burns at regular speed mostly so it takes the whole time the show is

Panasonic DMR EH75=BEST electronic component ever!

 

Contrary to some reviewers, I've had absolutely NO problem with this unit. In fact, I bought a second one for my other tv! The manual is long but not really THAT complicated. If you can read, you can figure it out. If I can do it, so can anyone else. ...

Comprehensive, EXCELLENT do-it-all unit

NONE that I've found

A Wonderful Way for Converting Old Tapes

 

My wife and I have been searching for a convenient way to compile our old VHS tapes in organized fashion. The standard VHS/DVD combos seemed okay, but having a hard drive with editing capabilities drew us to this Panasonic model. I was pretty concerned...

Great for VHS Converting

 

I bought the Panasonic DMR-EH75VS for the primary purpose of converting old VHS tapes to DVDs. I have it connected to the entertainment center via an HDMI cable now, but at first had it connected to another TV unit. The HD unit accepted the unit at ...

Excellent Product

 

Easy to use, one box does all, great TIVO alternative.

80GB (30h) HD. Doesn't work well with Dish Network, NO High Def.

Consumer review by:

Good features - LOUSY QUALITY!

 

The unit worked well for 5 months. Then it broke, big time. It froze. It wouldn't play a commercial DVD. It would not eject a DVD or even turn off. I had to search the manual for a way of retrieving the DVD. Then began the lengthy and as yet unresolved...

Nice features BUT IT DOESN'T WORK.

Did I mention IT DOESN'T WORK? Ineffectual tech support.

TV Guide is Flawed

 

Lots of features, when it does, everything works well

TV Guide is too unreliable.

Consumer review by:

Nice but frustrating

 

Picture quality, copy old family tapes to disk, TV Guide

Can't record TV for viewing later because of copyright restrictions.

Best Thing Since Sliced Bread!

 

Does everything but walks your dog!

It has a guideline, not a manual!

Product Specifications

Enjoy DMR-EH75VS - the Panasonic Progressive Scan DVD Recorder with built-in 80GB hard disk, VCR, SD Card Slot, DV Input, and HDMI Output. Your hectic schedule isn't always compatible with TV program schedules, so being able to quickly locate your favorite shows and record them for later viewing is important. The TV Guide On Screen Electronic Program Guide lets you easily find your favorite programs and set up your DVD recorder to record them unattended. Explore program listings up to 8 days in advance, searching by genre or keyword to help narrow down your choices. Once you've found what you want in the listings, simply select the program and your DVD recorder will automatically begin recording at the preset time. Incredibly versatile and format friendly, this DVD recorder can record to and play back just about any DVD you can throw at it. Specifically, it can record to and play back DVD-R/-RW/-RAM/+R/+RW discs. It can also play back many more disc formats, including: DVD-Video, DVD-Audio, DVD-R (dual layer), DVD+R (dual layer), CD, CD-DA, and CD-R/RW (including MP3, JPEG, and DivX files). With a Panasonic DVD recorder, never think twice about what disc you need. This DVD recorder can record an amazing 500 lines of horizontal resolution in LP Mode, which is twice the 250 lines of resolution offered by conventional LP Mode recording. What does this mean? It means that you can now record longer (4 hours on a single-sided DVD-R or -RAM disc as opposed to 2 hours) and still enjoy the crisp, vibrant images with exceptional detail that 500 lines of horizontal resolution deliver. When connected to an HDMI-compatible TV via an HDMI cable, this DVD recorder can up-convert the DVD content that you're watching to 720p or 1080i resolution (depending on your TV's display capability) so you can enjoy beautiful, high-quality imagery in high definition. You sit down to watch this week's episode of your favorite show and realize that you never got around to watching your recording of last week's episode. Not a problem with Time Slip, featuring simultaneous record and play. Select this week's episode in the program guide, start recording, and as it records you can watch your recording of last week's episode. What if you set up your DVD recorder to record a movie from 8.00 to 10.00 while you're out, but dinner was faster than you expected and you get home early? With the Chasing Playback feature, you don't have to wait for the program to finish recording in order to watch it. You can begin watching the portion of the program that has already been saved while the DVD recorder continues recording the remainder of the program. If you own a VCR, it's almost certain that at some point someone has accidentally recorded over a movie or show that you wanted to keep. One-Touch Record will save your favorite programs from the same fate by automatically scanning the disc for blank space before starting the recording process. No more worries that your favorite sitcom's season finale will be overwritten by a family member's Sunday fishing show. You and your family are sure to enjoy the convenience of your DVD recorder so much that you'll have a large library of recordings in no time. Keeping track of all those programs would be difficult if it weren't for the enhanced Direct Navigator, which displays thumbnails of every program on the disc as you browse, making it easy to identify the contents of each recording. The massive capacity of the built-in hard disk means you'll have plenty of space to record shows for everyone in the house. Record lots of programming, figure out what you want to keep, then move it to DVD in minutes for long-term storage. The goal of any playback device should be accurate reproduction of the original content. In the case of DVDs, most of that content is film-based. Utilizing advanced progressive scan playback techniques and very accurate MPEG video decoders, this DVD recorder provides an image that faithfully represents the image you see at your favorite movie theater.
