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.
Couldn't find a DVR (with digital tuner) for OTA programs, only cable. Got a recorder that used all kinds of disks. Sent it back. Hoped someone would make one with a HDD. I get TV through a rooftop antenna. Would not pay for TIVO or satellite but wanted the benefits.
I'm very low tech and worried that I would have trouble with setup or programing. Recorder arrived last week. One call to customer support for clarification of installation. So simple to set up. Programing is SOO easy! Tech support was quick, polite, helpful and didn't have an accent.
While it's recording you can watch a previously recorded HDD program, watch the currently recording show from the beginning and cut out commercials, watch a DVD or different TV channel while recording
I love this thing and am ordering another today for another TV.
Ok my system is still going strong. Yet since I had to exchanged Comcast-Xfinity boxes--due to bad reception--most of my recordings on HBO (this includes inDemand with them) and Encore have been showing as copy-protected! This means if I want to transfer a movie/TV show from the HDD to DVD side it will not allow a dub copy. I'm sure the networks (those in the future) are thrilled at this move they pulled so it keeps their loyal and new subscribers from abruptly cancelling or a few people who want to make a mini profit limited as possible -- you are not slick big business!
After years of using a VCR to record various programs, movies, and sporting events -- it was time for me to finally move onto using a DVR.
Like many, I was not about to run to my cable company and add an additional box to record. Thankfully this unit caught my eye. When I first got it I thought it would be hard to set up, not the case. My brother who is good with setting up technologically put it together in less than 30 minutes. Once my digital cable was scanned with the unit I was off and running.
I have so far recorded my fair share of favorite entertainment on the HDD side and transferred them to DVD once I've edited them the way I liked. Love the protection lock for the HDD side to keep all your recordings waiting the next time for viewing or burning.
The only flaws I've spotted are: NO double layer 8.5 disk for recordings, NO using of closed caption unless you are viewing a DVD that provides it, NO USB port to sync or transfer, can't edit while it's recording, and of course you can't record one thing and watch something else if you have cable like I do.
Pros to the item: protection lock for HDD recordings, can watch previous recordings on the HDD while it's recording something else, can watch a DVD while recording something to the HDD, scene deletion (perfect for movies/other programs containing commercials or previews), HDMI port, can watch all dvds except those HD DVDs, about 380 hrs on it's lowest setting for recording has a nice picture still.
Overall the product is very good. I think if you are trying to save pennies and not give more away to get a TIVO I will say go for it. If they can figure out a way to have it record double layer dvds I will be even more pleased.
The magnavox is very easy to use. The accompanying manual was easy to follow. Setting up a week's worth of shows to be recorded on the HDD is a breeze. I hope the unit is well made and lasts a long time.

It replaced an off-brand unit that only lasted two years. Not happy about that one.Read more
