Excerpt: We have been using this Toshiba Dvd/VHS player recorder for quite some time now. It has given us very good service and the versatility is still important to us. We do continue to watch a lot of the VHS recorded movies and purchased movies that we have collected over the years and have not converted them to DVD. This machine allows us to still enjoy them whenever we want. The player itself is easily wired to both the cable and television.
