The device is fine, however it is a bit slow, menus are a bit mysterious and I don't like the remote control set of keys and the way they function. Philips really missed out the standard set of keys for standard set of tasks and their colour codes on this remote controller. Things like fast forward is not as good as it could be. It is getting really worse when you are playing a video CD. Philips tried to put good stuff built-in like rough-cutting recorded pictures. I convinced with all sort of input, output wholes and the set is beautifully designed. I have captured some pictures via FireWire. It isn't that easy to figure out how to do things when you start, but thing are getting smoother as you learn how to deal. The DVD recorder is awesome. The job is really straight forward. I give it 3 stars.
Record on hard disk without having to worry where to store it. Keep what you like on DVD.
A very large built-in memory records the program you are currently watching when you press the pause button. When it suits you, you can resume the program from the moment you pressed 'pause' as if you're watching a live program.
With Instant Replay you are in control of exciting TV moments so you can enjoy a precious TV moment like a scene in a movie or football match again immediately, at the press of a button. The hard disk can play back any scene while continuing to record TV program.
Philips DVD Recorders support 'dual media' recording - the ability to create recordings on DVD+R/RW, DVD-R/ RW and DVD+R DL discs. Now you can buy any disc and the Philips recorder will always create fully compatible recordings, which can be played by any DVD player.
HDMI (High-Definition Multimedia Interface) is a direct digital connection that carries digital high definition resolution video as well as digital multichannel audio. With video upscaling you can increase the resolution of SD (Standard Definition) video signals that DVD uses to High Definition resolutions up to 720p or 1080i, so you will be able to see more details thanks to a sharper, more true-to-life picture. The resulting HD resolution video output signal can be fed to an HD ready display through HDMI. HDMI is fully backward compatible with DVI.
