Rated 5 out of 5★by 8th Generation of Philips/Magnavox HDD/DVD Recorde 8th Generation of Philips/Magnavox HDD/DVD Recorders:MDR533H/F7, MDR535H/F7, MDR537H/F7 (53x Series)Primary source of info on these recorders is here: is here:* * * * * * * * * * * * * * *The Mag 533/535/537 (53x) Series is the 8th, and possibly final, generation of simple, family-friendly, durable, std def (SD, 480i) analog/digital DVD recorders (DVDR) with hard disk drive (HDD) that are yearly improvements of the same basic design and operating system.They're the ONLY recorders, SD or HD (720/1080), available for daily use in North America with:-NTSC/ATSC/QAM tuners for antenna or cable.-Easily replaceable hard disk drive (HDD): 320/500/1000GB (1TB).-Easily replaceable DVD burner.-Widescreen (16:9) recording.-Amplified coax and line input.-DV input.-Coax digital audio out.-1080p HDMI upconvert.-36 timer-rec programs.-6-hour autorecord buffer.-Pause & rewind live TV.-Chase play.-Skip/replay.-Simultaneous play/record.-Record while watching diff. channel on TV via coax passthru.-Integrated TV/DVDR control via HDMI CEC-link.-1-2 hour power backup, dep. on whether Auto Clock is off or on.-Simple editing for your archive copies or home movies.* * * * * * * * * * * * * * *FOR NEWCOMERS TO DVDRs OR THIS BRAND OF DVDRThe 53x Series are standalone units that can record from an antenna or cable TV. They can also record from cable boxes and satellite receivers or copy from DVRs.They're so easy to use they can be operated by the entire family, from kids to timeshifters to gearheads.Timeshifters can reliably record a bunch of named shows, unattended and with NO tapes or discs.Gearheads can upgrade their HDD or create an "HDD farm" of multiple 2.5" and 3.5" external (E-SATA) HDDs with unlimited storage, <1-min. drive swapout, HDD portability, and external power for less internal heat and stress.The DVD burner is also DIY replaceable with a ~$70 OEM unit.For the past 5 years, this same HDD/DVD recorder design has proven to be a simple and reliable way to record your daily and weekly shows on analog or digital channels, completely unattended, so you can go on a long vacation or business trip and you'll never touch a disc!It's the only device you'll need to copy your family's home movies or your DVR recordings to a stand-alone, no-monthly-fee HDD, where you can edit or not, then high-speed dub to DVDs for a perfect mirror-image of the original. You can also record/copy direct to DVD, if you prefer.If you get your TV signal via OTA antenna, you won't need a digital converter box wherever you've got one of these.Fair warning: The HDD will spoil you rotten!* * * * * * * * * * * * * * *FOR OWNERS OF PREVIOUS MODELSIf you looked at or have one of the previous models in the Philips or Mag HDD/DVD series, you might only need to know that, with the 53x Series, Funai is basically only satisfying a "Primary Wish": KEEP MAKING THE MDR515!.The 53x Manual reads virtually the same as the 515 manual, except they now show 900 titles possible on the HDD instead of 600.One major disappointment, other than the fact that the MDR53x Series doesn't add any new capabilities, is that the remote still operates the older Mag HDD/DVD recorders, the 2080, 2160, 2160A and 513. Users of multiple Mag machines will still have to use barriers to operate a single machine.* * * * * * * * * * * * * * *ERRORS, OMISSIONS AND MISLEADS STILL IN THE MANUALBe aware that the 53x manual STILL has several important errors, omissions, and misleads.Three of the worst are:1. WRONG - SETTING THIS DVDR UP BEHIND A CABLE BOX, pg 19.Makes this DVDR a "slave" to the box! It should be 1st on the incoming cable coax unless you order PPV/VOD thru the box… only then do you need a 2-way splitter on the incoming coax. The coax circuit on this DVDR passes the raw signal thru to the box, so this DVDR can "pick off" (record) ANY unscrambled channel in the signal. It should NEVER be behind a cable box where it can only record the channel the box is tuned to… EVEN IF ALL YOUR CABLE CHANNELS ARE SCRAMBLED (makes no diff.). Of course, you must do an Auto Channel Preset > Cable (Analog/Digital) to make sure your DVDR sees and memorizes the unscrambled channels (if any).2. OMITTED - MAKING FRONT- AND END-CUTS IN EDIT, Pp 93-94.Frustrates many new users! In the Scene Delete menu, only REW stops on 1st frame and only PLAY and FF stop on last frame. 2160, 2160A and 513 also had a totally confusing and unnecessary auto-Preview after an End Cut that should be IGNORED. At least the 53x Series doesn't have the confusing auto-preview!3. MISLEADING - RECORDING 16:9 WIDESCREEN AS 4:3, pg 45.This half-truth has caused more misunderstanding than almost anything else in the manual. It's a "deep" technical subject that didn't need to be there! It HAS TO record a 4:3 aspect pic FRAME because the DVD Std was built on the old 4:3 VHS Std, but the DVD std allows a combo of square/non-square pixels, variable horiz. rez, compression and decompression within that 4:3 frame. THAT'S what allows your HDTV to stretch the "non-square" (rectangular) pixels of a WS image inside that 4:3 frame to natural 16:9 WS aspect. You just need to set this DVDR's Video > TV Aspect to "16:9 Wide" and your HDTV on its "Wide" aspect setting. However, this DVDR's DEFAULT setting for aspect ratio is "4:3 Letter Box" so you have to change that to 16:9 Wide during setup or none of your recordings will be 16:9 WS!* * * * * * * * * * * * * * *IF YOU NEED MORE INFO OR DETAILS ON THE ABOVE, IT'S ALL HERE (same link as at top):* * * * * * * * * * * * * * *Disclaimer: I have never represented or worked for Funai or Walmart in any capacity… and currently don't work for anyone else! -:) 09/05/2012
Rated 5 out of 5★by Best device for TV since..the VCR The previous review pretty much sums up this awesome device. I have owned a Philips DVD3575 (purchased at Walmart in-store) for about 5 years and wanted to get a second for those times when I want to record 2 shows, and in case my Philips ever fails. I was very happy to find that the Magnavox & Philips are essentially the same units, however I can tell there have been a few nice tweaks to the Magnavox.It takes a little getting used to, to take advantage of all of its features, but once you do, you are in complete control of what you watch and when you watch it.It does all analog/digital (unscrambled) channels via cable or over the air, I currently use it for OTA only, and it seems to have a very strong tuner, better than my OTA box.Menus are fairly intuitive, and the response of the unit is quick- changing channels is average, but skip/replay or skipping tracks on the HDD is very quick, especially if you record in SLP (lowest quality) mode, which is fine for SD DTV. Also, if you want to burn a show/movie to DVD, it can burn at high speed, again an SLP-recorded show takes about 7-8 minutes to burn an hour of show. Not bad.Based on the almost identical (and still in daily use) Philips unit, I am expecting many years of reliable use.For each scheduled program you can choose from analog channels, DTV, Line1, or Line2 inputs. This comes into play if your local cable company no longer offers any unscrambled analog or digital TV. So you can use your cable box to receive the channel and set this DVR to record from the line input from your cable box. And you can also record another program later from local OTA broadcast if you can receive OTA. The fact that it does receive scrambled cable is not this unit's fault, but the cable company's.And finally, if you're reading this review, do not hesitate to click "buy", after a week of use, you won't know how you lived without it! I never watch live TV anymore, it's always timeshifted to skip commercials. 09/18/2012
Rated 5 out of 5★by My second purchased of a Magnavox DVR. Love it !! Back in February of 2011 I purchased my first Magnavox MDR513H DVR from Wal-Mart and loved it. I contemplated purchasing a second unit since I still had basic cable service for analog VCR recording on nights with conflicting viewing schedules. Unfortunately I waited too long and out of stock they went. When I saw Wal-Mart offering them again there was no hesitation with this purchase. What I will save on canceling cable will pay for this purchase in less than a year.Over the last year and a half my MDR513H model performed flawlessly. Time shift recording is a blessing on busy nights. Hard drive storage puts an end to drawers of VCR tapes that wear out and it allows for easy selection on playback. The hard drive capacity puts an end to worrying about tapes running out while you're away. The ability to hook up a VCR and dub your VHS tapes to disc is an added plus. Unlike TiVo there is no monthly subscription fee since this machine is programmed to record just like a VCR. If you are a frequent VCR user, you'll love these DVRs.Compared to the MDR513H, this model has the same features. Some of the menuing was approved on, but basically it is the same machine. Like my older model, this one comes with a well documented user guide for installation and use. There is no loss of signal when daisy chaining both DVRs to my outdoor antenna. I have found my older DVR to be a reliable and valued addition to my entertainment center and have no doubt the MDR533H model will perform just as well.The only thing that could be improved on is the remote control for multiple machine ownership. Both DVRs can be controlled from the same remote so when programming or using each DVR individually you must cover the remote receiver on the other unit. A two channel remote would be a benefit for multiple owners. Then again, I now have a spare remote if I wear the first one out. 09/19/2012
Rated 5 out of 5★by GREAT DVD RECORDER WITH BUILT IN HARD DRIVE! This is the only remaining dvd recorder with a built in hard drive still available in North American. Better than a cable dvr any day of the week since you can burn your programs on to a blank dvd unlike the cable dvr's. The Magnavox was unavailable for the past several months with sellers online trying to rip people off by charging over $1000 each. I was so happy when I saw it was available again. This my 3rd Magnavox hdd recorder since 2008. For anyone who records a lot and wants to permanently save certain recordings I highly recommend this Magnavox dvd recorder. One great feature is as long as you have the recorder turned on; you can go back and record anything that’s been on up to the past six hours and you can easily edit out commercials. I've read that the motion picture industry wants to keep these types of recorders off the market and that may happen. The Magnavox comes in 320 GB, 500 GB and now a 1 TB. They start at only $228. I’ve been very happy with mine and I'll probably buy another one in the near future. 10/09/2012
Rated 5 out of 5★by CLOSED CAPTION ISSUE I bought the recorder from and had it delivered free. I’ve only had this recorder for several days, but I feel it’s going to be a great asset. I had a problem at first with recording because my hearing is not as clear as it once was. I like to have the closed captions turned on. It wasn’t showing them and I couldn’t figure out why. I called the tech support line and after asking me what I had already tried, they said it must be defective, and I have tried everything that I could have tried. I already had a few movies recorded and didn’t want to exchange it and start over if I didn’t have to, so I worked with it for another day and finally found the answer, which the manual didn’t mention. I had it configured with an HDMI cable and using hdmi as the input. I found by reading things on the internet that the closed captions info won’t pass through hdmi. I changed the cables to AV cables and it works perfectly for me. I would recommend this recorder to a friend. 11/22/2013
Rated 3 out of 5★by Nice product for the price. Let's start with what most people want tto know...can you record one channel while watching a diferent channel?It will depend on how you hook it up. I have Comcast cable, so the only way I found to do this was to use two of my cable boxes and a splitter. One box for the dvd recorder and one for your tv...this is so you can switch between the cable and the dvd recorder so that you can watch your normal cable while the recorder uses the second cable box to record your desired program. You will have to set the cable box for the dvr to the channel that you want to record..(the dvr stays set to ch 3). If you are a person that wants to record multiple shows on diffrent channels while you are away,THIS UNIT IS NOT FOR YOU. You will want to rent a dvr from your cable provider or by a tivo that will require a monthly subscription. All that being is what it is, but with the above installation, you can effectively record one channel while you watch a different channel. Good luck! 12/28/2012
Rated 5 out of 5★by Great replacement for a VCR With the switch to DTV, I needed a replacement for my VCR with it's analog tuner. I had been using a converter box with my VCR, but wanted to upgrade to a DVR. After researching alternatives, this seemed like a good compromise from TiVo with it's monthly fees. This device is not a true HD DVR, but it's HQ recording setting does a pretty good job with only a slight degrade in picture quality from HD. Setup was simple, and the tuner found all my digital channels. The signal strength is comparable to what my TV gets. The device basically operates like a VCR, but in the digital age. You program it to record at certain times, and have the option of labeling each recording. Playback is easy, and fast forwarding through commercials is simple with dedicated time skip buttons. I have not used the DVD side of this device, since I have a Blue-Ray Player and the HDD is more than adequate to record all my shows. Overall I am very pleased with this product. 09/21/2013
Rated 5 out of 5★by Great product wth optional digital tuner This product fully meets my expectations. It has so many functions, which I'm sure I'll be learning for sometime, yet it's intuitively easy to get started. It also has excellent picture instructions on the different methods of hooking it up & which one you should choose. I have two left hands when it comes to electronic devices, but had zero trouble this time.I searched all the stores for a full year looking for a decent, price-competitive DVR with a digital tuner for optional hookup to an antenna. Nothing! I was pleased to finally learn about this Magnavox sold on-line.This DVR comes with an instruction booklet, about 100 pages jammed with functions. The booklet is sectionalized & easy to understand. My only suggestion is that the booklet should be sub-divided into beginner, intermediate, & advanced to make it a little less intimidating. But this suggestion is no big thing. The booklet is so easy to understand.The quality, sound, & picture are great. Today I enjoyed watching a Netflix movie on it while recording a TV program. 12/07/2013
