DVD recorder review: JVC DR-MV1S

As published on
"JVC's intriguing VCR/DVD combo recorder comes loaded with promise on paper and riddled with annoying quirks in person. The DR-MV1S ($500 list, $300 or less online) is the first deck of its kind with dual tuners for recording two shows at once, but not if you use a cable or satellite box. It plays VHS tapes in progressive-scan, but you must press a button on the deck itself to do so. It controls a cable or satellite box, but the controller isn't included. And it makes sharp recordings of VHS tapes but without chapter stops. While we admire this VCR/DVD combo's attempt to break the mold, it's saddled with far too many compromises. "
