Excellent DVR

 

Very easy to setup recurring recordings, 3 different ways to transfer content to DVD-RW or -RAM, easy program search process

Took 24 hours to download TV Guide listings ; a few channels do not appear on the lineup ; changing channels while using TV Guide is slow

Feature-rich but not necessarily for those looking for something simple

 

It's much more complicated than other recorders, but this is not a reason to slack it. It has a ton of editing features. It's perfect for converting VHS tape to DVD, especially longer tapes: Just let the tape dub overnight and then edit it into ...

Excellent picture quality ; Lots of editing features ; Thumbnail menus for chaptersManual video bitrate adjustment

It's not that bad - in fact it's pretty good.

 

I'm surprised by the number of smart people who have had trouble setting up and running these machines. I first used the recorder without looking at the manuals, having used a Toshiba D-KR2 for some time. I had little trouble working out how to record ...

Good picture quality, tidy appearance, reasonable price, moderate ease of use, reliable so far.

Fan noise when not in use. Setting multiple programs inconvenient.

Only worth considering if you can get it cheap.

Nice-looking unit; more convenient than a VCR; free on-screen TV schedule info for some

Difficult to master; frustrating and tedious to operate; TVGOS service is of limited
