He Likes It

Conce Martinez "Grgranma Conce", Amazon
20 January 2011
  • Summary: It arrived externally damaged and it appeared that surely it wouldn't work, but your customer service waited until he opened the box and used it to see if it could be returned. It works! Five stars for your customer service. It was a gift.

What upconversion?

Darrell, Amazon
19 July 2010
  • Summary: I had been looking to replace a Toshiba DVR which did a capable job of boosting a 720P picture to 1080i quite successfully. So, I looked for the term upconverting in specs. The Philips DVR I ordered from Amazon had noted this in its product description, but I sure don't see where there's any upconversion taking place. It certainly does not do what the Toshiba product did.

So Far, So Good

Robert A. Lipman, Amazon
1 April 2010
  • Summary: I bought this recordered to replace a Panasonic that constantly locked up. During the 2 weeks that I've had the Phillips, its worked well although a bit slow to load a disc. The picture quality at the 4 hour mode is very good. Programming is very easy.

Absolutely Wonderful

Bill Mc, Amazon
21 August 2009
  • Summary: After reading reviews on this player, I was convinced it was superior. Upon hooking up and using it, I am convinced it is. I would highly recommend it (if you can find it still).

Why I'm giving this machine 5 stars...

Robin Ray "redrobin62", Amazon
10 August 2009
  • Summary: I've been reading other folks' reviews about this machine for some time. i have an analog TV that's about 20 years old. The picture tube still works fine so I'm reluctant to buy a new TV. Of course, now that the country has changed over to digital broadcasts I needed a DTV box. Like millions of others I got a $40 coupon and bought a DTV box which, after a few months, stopped working. Now I was in the market for both a DVD/DIVX player and DTV receiver.

Good machine

CEC, Amazon
1 August 2009
  • Summary: I have no complaints. I use this machine for the QAM tuner (picking up digital channels) and to burn DVDs of family miniDV tapes. Quality is excellent. I bought it brand new from Walmart for $138.00.

Windmill326 "lb", Amazon
26 February 2009
  • Summary: Works as advertised. Excellent tuner. Note: None of the Phillips dvr remotes work with tv remotes (not even Phillips TV). This is the biggest negative. (Phillips doesn't have an answer, ops).

Philips DVDR3506 Recorder/Player Defective Timer

Richard C. Kramer, Amazon
25 February 2009
  • Summary: The Clock/Timer in this unit is terrible. I have it set to record one program daily Monday through Friday.... but it won't consistantly maintain/return the correct time-of-day. I've exchanged/returned two units to Walmart. Believe I'll try another brand.
