Nice features, when they work


I really enjoyed this recorder when it worked. It eventually frustrated me so bad I took it back to the store as a defective unit.

Nice feature set

The player was hard to get VCR tapes into. It wouldn't play them half of the time without ejecting and re-inserting. It was always HOT! The DVD record funtion usually included the process of unplugging the unit before it would return to normal...

Don't like it.


We keep our DVD player out in the open, so it did not get hot due to lack of air movement around the unit.

It has a full set of features ; TV Tuner, Copy VHS to DVD and vise-versa. Nice front panel connections

It changes channels very slowly ; It stopped working and smelled of hot electronics. Touched the right side of the unit and it was very hot

Junk, right out of the box.

Fails to meet the promises. Defective manufacturing. Clearly cashing out on former RCA brand value.

Mixed Opinions on this one

Consumer review by: oldballcoach (

They could have made this easier to use.


Ease of copying, multiple input formats for recording from any analog or digital camera

Confusing remote, worthless tech support, having to use an AV input to use.

Product Specifications

Model DRC8335 features both analog and digital TV tuners for over-the-air reception, providing a crystal clear picture and more channels than DVD recorders that only record analog TV programming or don't have the ability to tune any channels. The DRC8335 is a full-function VCR and DVD recorder. It can record standard analog cable TV, analog broadcast TV, and digital broadcast TV with its built-in twin-tuner NTSC/ATSC design. The combo unit also works easily with set-top boxes that bring digital cable and satellite signals into a home, allowing for easy time shifting and enjoyment of favorite programs after they are broadcast. The RCA DRC8335 is truly a full recording solution.
