Summary: Just bought this, very easy to set up and go. The instructions are so easy, they are even on the box. Had unit working in 2 minutes. Copied tv shows to dvd and camrecorder cassettes to dvd with ease. Worth the money.
Summary: This works great for us because although we have cable, there isn't a cable box. Plus our television only has the rf connector in the back, so I was never able to hook one of these up to it before. Be sure and use RW dvd's in it if you want to record over the dvd more than once. Have only had this for a couple of weeks, but have used both the vcr and dvd recording features and they are easy to set up and use.
Summary: When I spotted this on the internet I don't remember it saying anything about having to also purchase an RF Modulator in order to hook it up to the older type CRT televisions. Most people are still using the CRT style because the LCD types are to costly and when hooking this up your TV it has to have the RCA hookups on the back as well as the coaxial (F) connector, just thought I'd pass this on other wise it's a great recorder/player or at least it has been for me.
Summary: I tried to program the vcr to record my daily shows, I had my daughter and son-inlaw come over to help me thinking that I was missing something. I called the 800 number twice and finally got the answer why I could not program my shows. I don't have a cable box, but I do have a digital converter, I was told that I could only program one station with the digital converter. Obviously this will not work for me, I plan on returning the vcr/dvr as soon as I get a chance.
Summary: I read all the reviews for this product before I purchased it. I took a lot of things into consideration. I decided to purchase the recorder. I love it. It is very easy to use. One review had said the remote was hard to read. I didn't find that at all. I have another vcr/dvd player and that remote has buttons half the size of this one. That was one thing I was very concerned about as I am handicapped and in need a remote that is easy to use.
Summary: This is a nice dvd/vcr. but if you have a older tv that doesn't have the newer jacks, it won't work. The cable connector is there but the vcr/dvd output only comes out the other jacks. Not the cable jack Other then that it is ok.
Summary: too complicated & dvd won't open when you want it to open. still don't know if either will record. not like older units that you set on channel 3 or 4. would use it everyday if I could figure out how to operate the unit. too time consuming on the set up. have never had a unit I could not figure out until this one.
Summary: Like that there is a built in tuner, but hate the limited ability to customize (if you delete an HD channel, deletes all subchannels - can't just remove say #-2 and #-3). Pretty easy to dub and record.
