Product Specifications

You just found the replacement for your VCR! The DVR-233-S is a perfect way to create your own movies on DVD, or to record your favorite TV programs. It records up to 10 hours of video, enough for your vacation movies or an all-day marathon of your favorite TV show. Using a DVD-RW (in VR Mode) you can do some basic editing, such as erasing a title or making changes to chapters within a title. You can also set up a Play List - for example, a title for each of your child's birthdays - and then move a title or combine it with another. It gets even better. Using a memory buffer, Chase Play lets you watch, stop, or pause a TV show that you're recording to a standard DVD-RW (in VR Mode). So, while the show is recording, you can watch it, pause it, go get a snack, come back, and continue watching. The DV-233-S is a versatile media player, compatible with DVDs, DVD-R/RWs, CDs, CD-R/RWs, and MP3s. Plus, its Disc Navigator feature makes it easier to browse and view the JPEG picture files of your digital photos on CD-R/RWs. And its audio performance is superb, thanks to a high-end 24-bit/192kHz D-A converter.
