Summary: This machine worked great for me. It recorded what I needed and rarely disappointed. BTW I used TDK DVD-RW 1-4x 4.7/GB/GO disc which worked great. It had a lot of nice features and a great price tag too! I wish my review could end here because, while it lasted, it was a great machine. Sadly, this thing only lasted about 10 months for me. At around 7-8 months, there was significant "skipping" on the recorded disc.

Summary: This unit hasn't been produced since 2003. Could not get it to work with a high def TV. Even tried using coax and rgb outputs and it still didn't work. I called for tech service and the rep said he couldn't believe that these units were still being sold as new.
recording channel numbers higher than 125 on sylvania DVR90DEA
1 April 2010
Summary: To record higher channel from the cable; connection should be as given in manual (B)..many scrambled channels. Power on all systems (DVR,cable box,TV). Select video mode on TV and using cable box remote select the channel of choice. Well, if you are using HD-TV the quality is compromised. To record setup->channel->manual preset(CH3 display for my DVR) or sometimes you can skip this step if you are able to watch the choice channel.
Summary: I have just received the DVR90DEA today and purchased a 5 pack of the Memorex DVD-RW (4x) at Radio Shack and they work fine. I did earlier read someone else's review as to other -RW that works and though it might be helpful to advise others about this Media that cost me $9.99 plus tax. Certainly I can not give much of a review as to other things, because I only used the player a little, but wanted to get this review out today. I may edit it later.
Summary: Great, easy to use, option to DVR have only owned this unit for a month and have had no problems reads all the disks I have put in it. Great for recording TV shows or special events. Only wish it had HDMI connection but that cost more, oh well maybe next time, but this unit work great and is easy to use set up in minutes.
