DVD recorder guide

If you want to replace your aging VHS video recorder with a new recording device for films and series, a good DVD recorder is the ideal successor in most cases. Especially since new VHS video recorders are no longer available and also the recording quality compared to the new devices but much to be desired. A DVD recorder offers a much better recording and playback quality and is also more comfortable to use. For example, the time-consuming fast-forwarding or rewinding of video cassettes in a DVD recorder is a thing of the past. In order to find among the numerous offered DVDR the device suitable for the own claims, a few points are to be considered when selecting a recorder before the purchase.

Storage media for the DVD recorder

One of the minimum requirements that should be put to a new DVDR is the ability to use both DVD +/- R and DVD +/- RW discs as a storage medium. Depending on whether and how you want to archive your recordings, a DVD +/- RW can be recorded multiple times and deleted again, without causing any loss of quality. On the other hand, a DVD +/- R is only suitable for one-time recording. Rarely do you find good, so-called DVD-RAMs that can be overwritten even more frequently than a DVD +/- RW. If more space is required or required per DVD, double-layer DVDs, also referred to as dual-layer DVDs, can be used as blanks. These DVDs can store approximately twice the amount of data compared to a regular DVD.

The Panasonic DMR-EH545EGK DVD recorder allows you to record movies and TV shows on a 160GB HDD or DVD-RAM / -RW / -R (DL) / + RW / + R (DL). The HDMI output of the recorder scales the displayed content to a resolution of 1080p.

Combination devices – DVD recorder with hard disk

DVD recorders with an additional hard drive are also available. The storage capacity of the hard disk reaches from approx. 80 GB up to 1 TB with these devices. One advantage of these recorders is the possibility of watching another program from the hard disk while recording a program. Some of these recorders have preinstalled editing programs for editing recordings. So movies and series can be easily stored without advertising. If these devices run out of disk space, individual recordings can be saved to DVD and archived. The vacant space can then be used for new recordings.

Up to 6 hours of recording to DVD + R / RW or DVD-R / RW allows the Philips DVDR 3305 DVD recorder. Virtually all media formats are played – DVD, DVD + R / RW, DVD-R / RW, (S) VCD; CD, CD-R / RW and MP3-CD or JPEG.

reception options

The reception of analog TV broadcasts is possible with virtually all DVD recorders. Different models are in addition to one tunerfor receiving digital programs via DVB-T (aerial), DVB-S (satellite) or DVB-C (cable). A CI slot for receiving encrypted stations is also possible. A DVD recorder can therefore be a separate receiverreplace. The programming of the recorder for certain recording times and broadcasts then takes place via the electronic program guide (EPG).

The Panasonic DMR EH 575 EG S is a combined DVD and hard disk recorder with a 160 GB hard drive. Recordings can be made to DVD-RAM, -RW, -R (DL), + RW, + R (DL). There is no restriction on DVD formats for playback. In addition, the playback of files in JPEG, MP3 & DivX format is possible. About the HDMI interface, programs in HD quality can be recorded.

Interface equipment

The connection options to a DVD recorder are similar to those of a normal DVD player. HDMI, USB and CI slots are included as standard with some devices, in addition to the antennas and video inputs. For example, DivX movies or MP3 files can be played back easily via the USB interface. The possibility of connecting the DVD recorder to the Internet, for example via WLAN, is usually sought in vain.
