I've had a combination VHS/DVD recorder for about a year and I have recorded movies off of cable and transfered camcorder videos onto DVD's without a problem. Today I purchased the same brand of unit only a newer model, unfortunately things have changed for the worse. The newer model has no tuner at all and is dependant on whatever video input is applied, furthermore when I attempted to record a movie from cable a warning appeared warning me of copyright problems and the program would not record. I spoke to a customer service person at Magnavox and was told older units might still be in some stores, but that this is how the technology has evolved. I said I can't imagine consumers being satisfied with a product that will not allow them to record programs they have paid to watch. Oh well, a minor annoyance but I thought I'd put this information out there for those who enjoyed recording a movie and are not aware of this change.
No announcement yet.
