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

Loads of features from Philips DVDR80

  • 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

  • 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

petitspike, Ciao
19 October 2004
  • Summary: bonjour a tous chers ciaonautes!! je m'y prend un peu tard pou chopé mon clavier et ma binouze pour vous donner quelques bonus du graveur philips "dvdr 80"? En fait, il est équipé de la meme facon que son frere, le dvdr 77, a 2 détail près: 1: il n' est pas munie du lecteur carte "PCMCIA", ce qui ,il faut l' avouer, est super pratique pour visionner ses photos numeriques (ou autres données) sans galerer!
  • Pros: simplicité
  • Cons: -
