    • A. To the best of my knowledge, it's simply a stand-alone dvd and hard drive (dvr) recorder. There's no mention of subscriptions, nor the ability to use with a subscription service. If you need expert advice, I strongly suggest that you contact a Magnavox rep. and ask them.

    • A. No. Note that with Tivo or a cable company DVR that you ay a subscription but you also get a TV schedule which you use to select TV programs to record. With this unit, you do not get a TV schedule and need to enter the date/time/channel.

    I have been looking for a device to record HD channels as well as SD. I have a Tivo series 2 that only does SD TV and a 160GB philips dvd recorder that also only does SD being they have no HD turner built in. I first thought of upgrading my tivo to their premier box for $479 with lifetime sub. since i have been a customer for years. Then I noticed i would have to get a cable card for a monthly fee and a wireless adapter for $59. The goal was to be rid of any subscription fee and not break the bank in doing it. I also thought of buying a pc tv tuner card for $130 but found this 320gb was selling for only $199 which is $70 less than what i paid for my 160gb years ago. The other reviews posted on this website and others failed to specify that this DVR will record in HD and also pause live HD TV which was the most important feature i wanted. Ordered my unit and recieved it the next day for $22 more and so far it does everything i want. The features are different from the philips unit so I am still getting the hang of it but all I can say is the picture quality is great on both SD/HD TV.

    This DVR records great shows. We have it connected to Direct TV via RCA cables and a big screen TV using the HDMI cable. When you record a program you can view, fast forward and reverse like a VCR without the tapes. You can also pause and even rewind LIVE broadcasts. It will play standard DVDs. This unit replaced a Series one TiVo which had was easy to use but required monthly fees. This recorder cost less than $300 without monthly fees, it is no bigger than a VHS video recorder and fits in the entertainment center with room to spare. Cons: Instructions are a bit challanging and require some time to learn the controls. The print on the remote control is hard to see in low light like you'd find in normal living room. The unit shuts down after a period of time not in use. When turning on , the boot up time is bit long (This is really a special type computer). I would consider buying a second unit identicaly to this one!

    The BEST DVD Recorder with Hard Drive

    For 2010, this is simply the BEST DVD Recorder you can buy. It has a massive 320 gig Hard drive, that gives you almost 400 hours on the lowest setting (which looks like a VCR recording) the next setting up looks very good and has almost 300 hours. You can record a tv show to the hard drive and keep it there, EASILY delete out commercials with the Edit feature, then save to a DVD or just keep it in the hard drive, I mean with 400 hours, its not like your gonna fill it up. The manual that comes with it at first seems daunting, but the best way to fig this unit out is just plug it in and play with it. It didn't take me long to figure it out. It was a easy 1 button record (otr) and a quick 1 button Dubbing (Hard drive to DVD or DVD to hard drive). Works much like a old style VCR but just all Digital and much better picture quality. It has a tuner that picks up Digital and old style Analog cable/satellite channels. This magnavox system is a gem! It's a almost like having a Tivo but without any monthly fees. I would deff recommend this unit to a friend or anyone wanting to buy a DVD recorder or to replace a old VCR or just tired of Tivo.

    I do not subscribe to a TV service. I get my TV the old fashioned way; over the airwaves with an antenna. Thus, I do not have a TIVO style DVR to record channels while I watch another channel. This Magnavox DFR, with its built-in HDTV receiver allows me to do this. I just hook up the antenna, tune the DVR to the desired channel and Record. The DVR output is plugged into one of the HDMI inputs on my HDTV and I watch the recorded videos via that HDMI input. On the down side, these saved videos must be watched before further recording is performed. There is no way (that I can find in the documentation) to begin recording at the end of previously recorded programs; they are recorded over with the new recordings. I can record them to a DVD (recorder included in the product) but I choose not to. Of course, it remains an option that I may use in the future. I would definitely recommend this product to others, and in fact, I gave one to our son and his family for Christmas.

    I read the reviews for this item and one of them wrote that it records and plays back on a HD tv, 16 X 9 pictures, although the manual says it plays back in only 4 X 3, standard dif. The manual must be wrong because this recorder plays back from HDD in 16 by 9 format. The picture is in standard dif. meaning 480P, that look pretty good to me on my Samsung tv and a 16 by 9 picture. I have my directv connected through the svhs connector and it looks like high def. to me. The tuner works great and also records in 16 by 9 format. The dvd records in 16 by 9 format also. And dubbing fron HDD to DVD is a breeze, plus you can edit the the HDD recording before transfering it to DVD. I purchased a second recorder in case I want to record two shows at the samd tine. Note, these recorders don't do double layer, but double layer disks are too expensive anyhow, and the recorders are from 2010, and arn't produced anymore, and try finding a recorder with a hard drive now besides a computer.

    I am no where near savy with this modern technology stuff. However, I upgraded from the vcr/dvd players. With the older vcr/dvd players recorders, I was spending a lot of money for vhs tapes and rewriteable discs. After using the tapes/discs the quality was terrible after a couple uses. A friend of mine bought the Magnavox DVD/DVR Recorder and recommended it. I was able to hook it up by myself and am able to use it very easily. I can record on a disc if I want or can use the hard drive. Have saved a lot of money that way. The other thing I really like about it is if I forget to load a dvd to record on it will record onto the hard drive and I don't miss my programs. The quality of the recordings is very clear and good. For the price I paid, I feel I received a very good product for a very good price. I am going to order another one for the other tv very soon. Overall, price, quality and service I am glad I bought it. I would recomend it for anyone to use - it is so easy.

    Hi Guys, I bought this Magnovax mainly to be able to record my favorite games, world cup soccer. Here are some great things about it: 1- very easy to set up, record, edit, delete 2- This magnovax is by far the best one out there for US consumers. 3- It has a digital tuner (very useful) There's only one thing that I'm not happy about - HDMI supposes to give you a great picture quality (HD upconversion) although it's ok but not as good as I was hoping for. Overall, if you're looking for DVR for home use, this one is very good & affordable. Highly recommended!!!

    I was just looking to replace my worn out vcr as my wife records her soap as she works. they dont really make them, only with dvd players included which I already own 2 of. I came across this, read the reviews and found that the hard drive records as well as being able to burn dvd's..I haven't done any dvds yet and probalby won't. it was real easy to hook up and program and the commercial skip she loves which after some reading of the owners manual which is pretty intense, its called V.SKIP.. I already have DVR with my cable but this saves room on that by being able to put the soaps on the hard drive and the way I have it hooked up I can record 2 channels with the DVR but I have to watch one and now a third with the MAGNAVOX right now I believe she has 3 weeks worth of soaps recorded on it. I love it and highly recommend this product

    Since I've become financially challenged, I had to forego my cable service and DVR. I had reverted back to a VCR to record my shows. However, I discovered that a digital antenna would give me several more channels and in HD quality. Unfortunately, my VCR would not record the digital signal. I was elated to discover this product. It's a digital version of a VCR. I can pause and rewind live TV, program it to record with just a few clicks on the remote, and even 'dub' recordings that I would want to save indefinitely. I'm good with gadgets, so I had no problem setting it up and working the remote. I could see where it would be a tad overwhelming for the not-so gadget savvy. If you read the instructions and follow them step-by-step, you shouldn't have a problem (think of it as a VCR that you're already familiar with). I haven't been this excited about a product since I discovered low-fat, soft serve frozen yogurt!!
