Good quality, convenient recordings. Time-shift buffer for pausing live T.V.

Some slighlty confusing operations. Occasional distortion of DivX playback.

Philips DVDR3460H


Generally good quality fuss free product.

Let down slightly by annoying time delays in responding to the controls and also on screen menu bar could be less obstructive during viewing.

Philips DVDR3460H


A large hdd means we rarely need to use discs. The unit looks good and is very easy to install and set up.

The recorder is not able to load discs into the hdd, which would be good for copying home movies. The interface complicated to use, and the remote is awkward.

Product Specifications

Watch what you want when you want. Record on hard disk without having to worry where to store it. Keep what you like on DVD in lasting quality. Simply plug in your device to the USB port on your Philips DVD system. Your digital music and photos will be played directly from the device. Now you can share your favorite moments with family and friends. Also known as IEEE 1394 and FireWire, i.LINK is the worldwide standard for connecting digital video devices, used on digital home video equipment such as DV and D8 camcorders, as well as PCs. Conveniently, it carries all audio and video signals via a single cable. With i.LINK Digital Video input you can copy your home videos in their original digital picture quality. Multi-format playability allows you to play most file formats for maximum listening and viewing pleasure, including MP3, WMA, JPEG and the popular DivX digital media format. DivX playback enables you to play and share compressed high quality DivX video content beyond your computer. Philips DVD Recorders support 'dual media' recording - the ability to create recordings on DVD+R/RW and DVD-R/RW discs. Now you can buy any disc and the Philips recorder will always create fully compatible recordings, which can be played by any DVD player. A very large built-in memory records the program you are currently watching when you press the pause button. When it suits you, you can resume the program from the moment you pressed 'pause' as if you're watching a live program. With Instant Replay you are in control of exciting TV moments so you can enjoy a precious TV moment like a scene in a movie or football match again immediately, at the press of a button. The hard disk can play back any scene while continuing to record TV program.
