I have been making copies of my old home movies for a little over two weeks with NO problems at all.

Panasonic DMRES35VS Progressive Scan DVD Recorder/VCR Combo - Retail


Most of the functions are very basic.

Some of the functions seem really hard to understand.

A follow up... Awesome all around...


The first review I wrote was because I expected a DVD recorder to playback what what discs it could record on.

On the remote that comes with the player, there's no eject button which is kind of odd.

Well... it plays... and plays well so far...


I originally purchased the Samsung VR330, and aesthetically it looks more elegant and appealing than this model. BUT, what pleases me is that this player will play recorded DVD's and backups. The Samsung could not.

It played some of my pre-recorded DVD-R's and a DVD+R DL flawlessly

There isn't an eject button on the remote control. That's the only complaint I have. Because the TV input is S-Video, it won't play widescreen TV or HD channels utilizing the entire real estate of your HDTV screen. They all play in Letterbox mode
