JVC DR-MV1S

Dual tuner lets you record two shows at once; sharp recording quality in four-hour LP mode; chases playback with DVD-RAM discs; progressive-scan VHS playback; FireWire input; custom recording speed.

Difficult to use; dual tuners won't work with digital cable/satellite boxes; inconvenient to watch VHS over component video or S-Video; no chapter stops in recordings; IR blaster sold separately.

JVC's promising but confounding VCR/DVD combo recorder is saddled with too many quirks.

JVC DR-MV1S

 

Although a little rough around the edges, JVC's DR-MV1S is a very impressive product overall. It's more than just a DVD-VCR combo--it happens to have ...

DVD recorder, very well-designed feature set

Poor remote, UI needs work

Even though its user interface is below par, the JVC makes up for it with a very cool set of features--including DVD recording--in this powerful combo device.
