The best


I do not know how the dvd player works I have never used them. I was only interested in the digital tuner side.

I have installed about 20 of these for commercial use and they work great. Easy to set up and the picture quality is clear. I have them running 24/7 for 11 months now and not a problem. I have coax for the signal in and then rca cables for the out put.

none so far.

PHILIPS DVDR3505/37 Upconversion DVD Player/Recorder

HDMI shure reduces the number of cables, works well, Phillips & Newegg seem to come through strong.

Box received in poor condition and had something shaking around inside it, it had a torn up Fedex label on it even though it came to me UPS. At first I thought it was a re-pack, but after opening the box everything looked new, but the foam packing had...

Buy it!


YES, IT HAS A TUNER! You can record one channel while watching another. Easy to set up and use, good picture and sound. I bought the extended warranty, because my first dvd recorder (light on) didn't even last a year, and it was only another $10.00 So...

Good Product


It does what it claims to do. The built-in tuner is a plus - you can watch one show on your tv while recording another on the dvd. I thought the picture quality on recordings would have been better, but the picture is still pretty darn good.

( )VR mode !!!???&&&


I bought this unit for the digital tuner so it can be used on an analog tv to view high definition from my cable input. That works great. The only problem that I'm having is recording from my cable box. I get an error stating this program can't be...

I purchased this for my wife to use as a replacement for a VCR in the kitchen. The dvd recorder arrived looking like new and works excellent. Although the operation is somewhat more complicated than the old VCR, my wife is getting the hang of it and...
