Summary: This is my first DVR purchase. Feel I made a wise decision. The unit performs very well. Very flexible with bitrates and quality is amazing. I burn many Dvd's on the computer, but this unit makes recording programs and burning them so much easier. Have been using it for 8 months now, burned countless Dvd's and it works flawlessly. Great thing about this unit is that it will record any off air program, never any copyguard issues.
