The combo recorder is capable of writing to DVD+/-R/RW and CD-R/RW. It plays CDs loaded up with MP3 music files and discs brimming with your favorite JPEG digital photos--once you've burned your images to a recordable CD, custom slide shows in the comfort of your living room are just a few remote clicks away.
At the press of a button you can backup VHS to recordable DVD or DVD to VHS (as long as DVD copying is not prohibited by anti-piracy technology). The unit's convenient front-panel DV Link (IEEE 1394) connection preserves your DV camcorder footage in its original digital quality. You can store from 1 to 6 hours of audio/video content on a single 4.7 GB recordable DVD, depending on the equality you select.
The LVC-9006 is also a terrific DVD player. Whether your living room is currently home to an HDTV or you're merely thinking of "someday," the LVC-9006 is equipped to deliver the full potential of your DVDs via its progressive-scan component-video outputs. Progressive scanning, referred to as 480p for the number of horizontal lines that compose the video image, creates a picture using twice the scan lines of a conventional DVD picture, giving you higher resolution and sharper images while eliminating nearly all motion artifacts.
The deck provides S-video inputs and, for the DVD player, S-video outputs, as well as standard composite-video ins and outs. Choose from optical or coaxial digital-audio outputs to channel digital surround signals (Dolby or DTS) to a compatible multichannel AV receiver and speaker system for dynamic, enveloping surround sound from your commercial DVDs.
To vastly simplify setup and programming, the LVC-9006 offers the VCR Plus+ guide and an "Easy Guider" menu system that simplifies essential DVD-recorder operations. To program with VCR Plus+, you need only enter a set of predefined digits (PlusCodes) found in TV Guide magazine or newspaper TV listings. You don't need start and end times or even dates.
"Easy Guider" also provides onscreen capabilities for easy setup and system navigation at the press of a button. Alternately, the LVC-9006's easy-to-set timer/recording feature permits up to 8 sets of pre-scheduled recordings to be viewed at your convenience.
