A great compliment to your DVR


Some reviews indicated that DVD recorders might not record HBO and pay per view channels. I haven't tried pay per view, but there was not any problem recording HBO and HBO on Demand.

The Toshiba D-R400 is a great compliment to your Digital Video Recorder (DVR). When you put in a blank DVD, it only takes about 20 seconds until the D-R400 is ready to record. You can pause recordings and stop recording & record more later. DVD-RW and...

It does not like generic DVD's. In fact the manual recommends that you stick to a specified list of Verbatim, JVC, Maxell, Sony, and TDK products ; Once you get everything connected and burn a few DVD's it can be easy to use. But if you had trouble...

Toshiba D-VR3


This product came out top in the rfecent 'Which?' survery, and I bought it because it seems silly to pay for advice and then not take it. It has RAM as well as -RW on the DVD formats accepted, and I like the idea of time slippage.

The control box is complicated and not very intuitive. The major setback is that this product has a built-in analogue tuner, but no built-in digital tuner, so you are restricted to the current analogue channels if you want to reecord whilst you are out.

Product Specifications

This DVD recorder is designed to provide the greatest flexibility in recording and playback by supporting DVD-RAM, DVD-R, and DVD-RW recordable disc formats. ColorStream Pro Component Video Outputs allow the highest quality video signal to be sent from the DVD player to a component video equipped progressive scan TV. When this connection is utilized with today's HD-compatible sets, typical NTSC artifacts-like video noise, dot crawl, and flicker-are virtually eliminated, resulting in a low-noise, highly detailed picture with unequaled color purity. Digital Cinema Progressive (3/2 Pulldown) delivers the smoothest, most film-like images to any progressive scan television, such as an HD-compatible one, and ensures maximum resolution. Time Slip Recording/Playback offers the user the ability to begin watching a recording that is already in progress, using DVD-RAM. DVD-R/CD-R/CD-RW Compatible playback ensures discs made with a personal computer can be played back in the home theater system too.
