1st one

 

Some channels have copyright signal and this DVD recorder will not record those channels.

Very simple to use and enough extras for a tech-junky. Works easy just like a VCR and has many of the same functions. Burned DVD off live TV. Havent tried VCR->DVD or DVD-VCR yet. Different modes to record off TV for DVD. XP mode for best quality or...

Solid performing in every way

 

Despite the above product description, this is the model and picture of the Toshiba D-VR4X VCR/DVD Recorder Combo, not just the DVD recorder. This is a quality unit in my opinion. I did not experience any of the errors that other reviewers described ...

Excellent DVD and VCR playback, record, and copy capability. Superior high-end CD audio playback.
