Beyond the VCR

rappinhoo..., Ciao
20 July 2005
  • Excerpt: "...integrate as promised with my Philips Freeview box. However, I've learned to live without that. **** New info **** My final gripe is that this is supposed to be a multi-region DVD player, but so far I've not managed to get that to work.. Some players come pre-hacked, while with others you have to do it yourself. Mine is one of the latter, and I've not yet got around to doing a search for the relevant info. Since I had a multi-region player before ...
  • Pros: Guideplus; several recording modes; plays CDs and MP3s
  • Cons: Freezes occasionally; missed programme endings

Philips DVDR80 - good recorder with minor improvements needed

rappinhood, Dooyoo
4 July 2005
  • Excerpt: Setup Connecting the cables is relatively straightforward using the enclosed diagram. The first time I set it up, I couldn’t get the electronic programme guide to work (probably because of a poor TV signal in my area), although I learned to live with it as I was still able to pre-programme recordings. When I moved house, setup went as described, so I must presume that my first negative experience was a glitch. The EPG works well now and is always up to date.

Loads of features from Philips DVDR80

shhciao, Ciao
4 July 2005
  • Excerpt: "I haven't played a video at home in more than two years - that's how useful the Phillips DVDR-80 DVD recorder is. Setup went smoothly the second time I tried - the difficulties I experienced the first time round were perhaps because of a poor TV signal in my local area. The recorder has several modes, from video quality (though I think it's better) to ultra-high professional quality. Most users will find that M6, giving six hours' recording ...
  • Pros: Guideplus programme guide; recording quality; plays MP3s
  • Cons: May miss ends of some programmes

Quick review - only had it a week

sjedwards..., Ciao
2 January 2005
  • Excerpt: "I've been waiting to get a DVD Recorder to replace the VCR for months so wanted something that was at least reliable, incorporated all the benefits of the VCR and then some. Philips seems to be company at the forfront of the market so were my safe choice. Pricewise the DVDR's are now affordable at around £200. I was suprised at the size of the R80 - its as big as a VCR but is still quite neat and attractive. These things are important to my other ...
  • Pros: Controls Sky, TV Guide, Upto 8 hours playback, Picture Quality
  • Cons: Difficult set up, remote is fiddly, Sky/Ext compatability is complicated, Start up of box slow

Easy to Use Good Quality DVD Recorder

nigelg, Ciao
31 January 2004
  • Excerpt: "The Philips DVDR80 offers high quality recordings with the ability to control an external TV receiver. I find that the M2x recording speed offers the best compromise of disk space and recording quality. The recorder can handle from 1 to 8 hours of recording per disk, but the quality does suffer quite a lot beyond 3 hours. I used to have a Panasonic Sky digibox, but the recorder could not control this for some reason. I have replaced this with a ...
  • Pros: Easy to programme, good quality recordings, keeps track of recordings
  • Cons: Cannot control a Panasonic Sky Digibox

Ci vediamo un bel dvd?

gianna8, Ciao
7 January 2012
  • Summary: Quand la sera, in tv non cè niente di bello da vedere, parto immediatamente con la mia collezione di film in dvd; ne ho tantissimi e di tutti i generi, dai comici, alle commedie agli horror ed ai film d' azione che piacciono tanto a mio marito. A me un pò meno..... Perciò per vedere degi ottimi film cè bisogno di un lettore dvd di qualità, come questo della philips, che abbiamo in cucina.....

Testbericht zum gekauften DVD Recorder

angel-mario, eBay.de
3 April 2008
  • Summary: Hallo. Der DVD-Recorder war ausgepriesen, als ein Recorder der nicht alle gebrannten DVD liest. Aber beim Test stellte ich fest,dass er nicht eine gebrannte DVD erkannt hatte. Ausserdem hatte er starke Spuren vom gewaltsamen öffnen des Gerätes.Habe direkt entsorgt und werde mir es genau überlegen jemals wieder etwas gebrauchtes bei Ebay zu erwerben.

Heute nicht mehr zu empfehlen

ShangTsung, Ciao
28 October 2007
  • Summary: Hatte mir das Gerät Anfang 2005 zugelegt und war begeistert von der neuen Technik. Diese verflog jedoch nach einigen Tagen, da ich ihn schon zur Reperatur geben musste. Er hatte sich nämlich geweigert schon den ersten aufgenommenen Titel zu speichern. Rohling wurde dadurch unbrauchbar. Nach 2 Monaten (!) hatte ich den Rekorder dann wieder mit "ersetzter Lasereinheit" und funktionierte ganz gut. Allerdings war die Zoom-Funktion nicht mehr möglich.
  • Pros: Guide Plus - System
  • Cons: Nur DVD + R/RW, technik sehr empfindlich
