Pioneer DVR-645H

 

A DVD recorder with plenty of storage space, Pioneer's DVR-645H has added features such as MP3 playback and USB connectivity.

Jukebox mode rips, stores and plays audio CDs, MP3 and WMA files. Records to all types of DVD. Ample 250GB of hard drive space. USB for viewing photos and PictBridge printing. Upscales DVDs via HDMI to 720p or 1080i.

Single analog tuner gives average 4:3 pictures. Long Play recordings are jittery and jagged. No EPG functionality.

A decent upgrade from a VCR but the lack of digital tuners means picture and sound quality of free-to-air broadcasts are not improved.

Pioneer DVR-645H

 

I bought it 3 days ago (AUD$640 from Ebay). I have not tested everything. So far I found out it is good enough for me,especially recording and playing DVD.With some grainy old movies it can produce good

Good playback with HDMI.Extra inputs

No Optical out put ; This recorder does NOT remember the position when I take the DVD out; it is inconvenient

Standard play mode, however, was fine.If you're after clearer pictures or wishing to buy a widescreen TV, you'd be better served by a recorder with a digital tuner--an HD digital tuner if you've got a HD-ready television. However, if you need to save...
