  • A. Apparently, RodFive hasn't found that you can also PRE-TITLE timer programs so each recorded show has a Title on it in the Title List, automatically. It's the 3rd option under the Timer Programming menu. Set a timer first, then go back in with that 3rd option to add a title for each recorded instance of that show.

  • A. It has a great timer. I find it easy to set up daily, weekly, m-f, and one shot recordings. For example, it records the network news every night and also 60 minutes on Sunday. Some of the other features seem harder to do but timer recordings are not too bad.

  • A. YES. I have recorded several TV shows and watched most of them. Set specific date or Set to record weekly. Start time-End time and channel.When you view the "Title List" from the menu, highlight each recording and it displays the date recorded and the length of the recording. From there you may attach a title to what you recorded. I'm a customer, not a salesperson.

I've been looking for a hard drive based recorder on and off for a few years now. Generally when I research them I find few models available and there always seems to be something lacking so I don't buy. This one had good reviews so I gave in and bought one. So far it is filling my needs very well. It is fairly intuitive in its operation. After going through the manual once or twice I was able to set up daily, weekly and one shot programs and erase them at will. The fast forward works well to skip commercials and stops on a dime so you miss very little when you resume play. My needs are pretty basic so for me, the ease of setting up recordings, skipping commercials, and erasing recorded shows is reason enough to buy it. But there is more. If you watch shows using its tuner, it automatically makes a recording of whatever your tuned to so you can replay whatever you want. So why didn't I give it 5 stars? Well the biggest drawback to this device is that it doesn't tune or record in HD. When you replay shows from the hard drive they will not be in HD and in my case, it won't fill the entire screen. It does have 720 and 1080 output but its not HD and there is no format setting on my tv that displays the entire video full screen without cutting something off. There are a few other 'Issues' like, the remote won't control a tv, just itself. Once your playing something back, hitting menu does nothing. I still recommend it however since its allows me to record and watch shows easily and it allows me to skip commercials. I don't watch a lot of tv so its hard to justify cable but when I do, I now have something available to watch which ive recorded off an antenna and I can skip the annoying ads.

We like this one better than the ones that come with cable service; dropped cable service and just use over the air antenna digital TV and find both of our units flawless and more than adequate. Get used to the text mechanics and it is fully functional.

I got this to use as a QAM tuner and DVR and it works great for that purpose. The internal Hard drive is excellent to be able to store programs and to do some 'trimming' of content to edit out commercials and that before burning to a disc to archive. I do wish there would be a way to make favorite channels or to label them but for now I am just happy to be able to see and record them directly.

Magnavox is a great brand. Bought televisons from them. this unit greatlymeets my expectations. I like the large size HDD for on the fly recording. Have bought previous brands of DVD rrecorders and this one is by the easiest to use and understand: screen menu commands, remote control. Thank you so much!

I tried for hours to connect it to my TV. I eventually had to go through my old VCR RCA-cables input then out to the TV. The coaxial output from the machine does not play the DVD, channel select or even menu. Only if sent through the RCA plug outputs, (Video=Yellow, Right-Speaker=Red and Left-Speaker=White) into my old VCR then I could use the coaxial output to go to the back of my TV set. It will digitally store over 900 hours of recorded shows off the TV. Programming is easy to setup. Even recording at the longest play option, the sound and picture are good. I have already recorded several shows and watched most. Other than adjusting the clock so not to clip the last few seconds off the program (my error) this has worked perfectly for my needs so far. I haven't tried to record to the DVD-ReWriter, yet. It plays professional DVDs perfectly. I experimented with "Lava Girl and Shark Boy, in 3D" using the glasses with red and blue lenses. I'm happy with the results. If you are aware of the issues above (so not surprised before you buy this product) then I'm sure you'll be happy, too. I trusted the name, Magnavox due to past purchases. I was not disappointed this time, either.

Unit was the best choice available for time-shifting broadcast (over-the-air) programming. Wish it had come with Blu-Ray burner instead of 'normal' DVD RW, though no local 1080p broadcasts in area yet. Instruction manual not as clear as some, but you can dig out the information with reading & the unit in front of you. I'd get one for my spouse, if she wanted one.

This recorder exceeded my expectations. I love being able to watch a program previously recorded on TV while recording another one at the same time. Or if I miss part of a program that's on, being able to go back and review what I missed and see the whole thing. I also love being able to record many programs without having to worry about running out of space and/or reformatting the hard drive. There's still much I'm learning about my HDD/DVD recorder, but so far, I love it. The only complaint I have is not being able to control my TV with the same remote. I'm a one remote man. Although I have programmed a remote to control both devices, the alternate remote does not work all the features on the HDD/DVD, so in some cases, I have to go back to the manufacturers remote. Very satisfied!

tricky programing

The program of digital channels on this model was tricky. It would only auto program the analog channels on our cable network, after calling tech service they suggested manually programming all digital channels...which took some time. Once everything was set it worked great, easy to use and we were happy to have a dvr with ability to watch movies on disk with one unit.

Very pleased with this product. It meets and exceeds my expectations. Only product I could find on the market that has a built in tuner for those of us who rely on off the air TV. Probably did not need to buy the model with 500GB drive but the cost difference was slight and more is always better. I bought the refirb model and other than a poor quality xerox manual, it can not be told from new. I have not tried to dub onto a DVD yet, but have tested the DVD as a player. It is almost impossible to give a stored recording a name other than date and time, which may be inconvenient for one who plans to store a lot on the drive. I do not.
