DRC7005N unreliable at recording


I am keeping my DRC7005N but its problems are irritating and spoil what could have been a happy adventure into "free (GUIDE Plus )" scheduled recording. Due to its problems recording with GUIDE Plus scheduling, it cannot be relied upon to ...

Watch one recording, while recording another.GUIDE Plus when it works.Convenient recording access.

GUIDE Plus scheduling unreliable.Service is virtually nonexistent.System hangs, loses time, gets confused.

I Love This Machine


I got the RCA DRC7005N DVD Recorder/Player for my husband for his birthday, but I think I've used it more than him at this point. I am so excited about this product! It's everything that it says it is and so easy. I must admit I was a little ...

Ease of use. Great picture quality. No fee.

None that I have found.

Great Idea - Had to return due to software problems


I am sorry to say I had to return my DRC7005N. It is a great idea, but has too many software problems. The unit continues to lock up. I don't think this is just my unit. Based on reading reviews from others on eopinions and on newsgroups on the web, ...

no subscription PVR!, plays MP3/DVD/AudioCD, 40G hard drive

Unit continues to lock up and require a reset. Very slow tuner. Returned the unit

Features, ease of use, price, built-in dvd.

40 GB vs 80 GB on some other units

You have to buy this!


I was originally looking at Tivo or Replay TV. After reading less than favorable reviews on both, I decided to take my chance on the RCA DRC7005N. As far as I can tell, this is the first review of this unit. I'll try to go step by step. Setup: Easy. ...

No Monthly Fee. Free Guide Plus TV listing. Great Picture. Easy to Use.

None that I've found so far.
