This is a great DVD/VCR and works very well. I knew that it did not have a TV tuner, which I figured was no problem, since I have satellite and would have to go through the box anyway. However, since there is no tuner, there isn't a coaxial connector on the back, only RCA. So, if you have an old TV that only has a Coaxial connector, don't buy this unless you also buy a RF Modulator.

Bought this model at a local Wal-Mart due to price. Since VCR's don't have a history of longevity, I was not wanting to spend more than I had to. Since the unit does not have a tuner, I had to purchase a modulator in order to get it to work with my DISH unit. Attempted to play a few of our VCR tapes to check the quality. The first tape skipped and had poor picture quality, even though it played perfectly on our old VCR. The next two tapes had poor picture and sound quality, even though they also looked and sounded fine on our old VCR. Am returning the unit to WM. Will be forced to spend more money to get a better unit. I would give an "A" to Magnavox for their telephone service support. However, I would give this unit a "D" on performance. I would not recommend this unit to anyone who wants a good, quality VCR/DVD player.

This DVD/VCR player is doing exactly what I expected it to do. It plays all of my DVDs and I am able to watch my home videos (on tapes) which is why I bought it in the first place. Hook-up was quick and did not need extra cables. I get a great picture on my tv. For the price I paid, you can't beat it.

I decided to purchase this inexpensive VCR recorder/player(+DVD player)despite a number of negative reviews. It performs beyond my expectations. The quality of the VCR recording and playback is very good. It took some trial and error to hook it up to the external digital tuner that converts my analog TV to digital reception. And, because this Magnovox VCR recorder does not have its own internal tuner, it will record only the station that is set on the external tuner. You cannot record one channel while viewing another. But you can preset the timer to record a program even if the TV is turned off, so long as the external tuner is turned on.
My criticisms are (1)the difficulty identifying (reading)the controls on both the unit and the remote control, and (2)the relatively slow rewind. The red indicator lights on the unit are small and difficult to discern at a distance. The minscule, light numerals are the remote are difficult to read even close-up. But experience breeds familiarity and the unit and the remote become more user-friendly. Overall, within the limitations of the device, this is clearly a Best Buy.

I was very satisfied with this equipment. It was delivered on time and I'm really enjoying it. I've started watching my DVD's and it works great. I have now started to tape shows and haven't had any difficulties taping any programs.

I just got this DVD/VCR combo two months ago. About two weeks after the last day to return it, the DVD player broke. It just won't load DVDs anymore. The VCR works fine though.

Great buy. Just be aware that you cannot run a tv cable through this unit. You need a cable box and then need to run red/white/yellow rca cable to tv. Something I found out later.

Our Panasonic VCR died a few weeks ago and we needed to replace it. The TV we used it with is a 25-year old GE. This player works with our old TV and we can play VHS tapes, record VHS tapes and watch DVD's. I am using a cable box from Comcast. This unit does not have a tuner, so you will need an external one like a cable box. Also, your TV MUST have RCA jacks on the back: 3 colored sockets--yellow (video signal) and red and white for the audio. You will need to purchase another set of RCA cables if you plan on recording.

A few things you need to know to get today's progressive scan players to work with an analog TV.
1. You MUST turn progressive scan off. On this player there is a small light on the front labelled P Scan. If that light is illuminated, progressive scan is on. To turn it off, press and hold the play button on the DVD side until the light goes off.
2. There is no TV/VCR button on the remote or front panel. So, to view a tape you must switch to video input on your TV. How you do this depends on the brand of TV you have. For my GE, it amounts to setting the channel to channel 91. This can be done using your TV's remote or by just pressing the channel up button on the front of your set if you are using a cable box. With Comcast's boxes, the channel controls on the TV are limited to 4 and 91 on my set. I suspect that even if you do not know how to switch the video mode, just pressing the channel up button will probably toggle through your options. To find out more about your specific set, download the manual for this player. Go to Google and type magnavox dv225mg9 in the search box and click on the manual. Download it and go to p. 6 where they list the various TV models and ways to switch the video input.
