DVD-R recorder to buy?
on Mar 22, 2006 at 2:41:15 pm

I'm wondering if there is a dvd recorder out there that has component inputs.

I've only been able to find composite in with component out.

If there are no component input dvd recorders out there, which would you suggest to get the best picture quality?

Right now I'm using pioneer Elite DVR-7000. I've had it a couple of years, I used a dvd cleaner disc on it once already but it's giving some signs of failure. Everyone once in a while, I'll record something on it and it won't finalize the disc or even play it. Is it more cost effective to get it fixed or buy a new unit?

Do I have a DVD recorder for YOU!!

It records on DVD-R, DVD-RW,




Audio CD (makes a great standard audio CD!)


CD-V (video CD format)

It will FINALIZE a newly-recorded DVD in under 90 SECONDS!!

It records DVD's at HQ (1-hour) SP (2-hour) LP (4-hour) and SLP (6-hour).
And the image and audio quality is superb.
(Even the SLP recordings are very "watchable" unlike other DVD burners I've used.)

No component inputs, but it has S-Video (almost as good as Component. looks great) and FireWire for direct input from a DV source.

I used mine constantly for months... no problems.

This little gem can be found at (of all places) COSTCO, for the unbelieveable price of
$169.00 (yes, under $170.)

Now, do you think you should service your old unit?

I found that most of the Philips line of DVD recorders have Component inputs and out puts
Model DVDR 615

Except... All the Philips models are DVD+R

No Problem
I make my DVD on a DVD+RW
( Rewritable are great if you mess up the first recording just erase it and start over )

Then take the VIDEO TS folder from the DVD+R and use Roxio Titanium Toast to burn a DVD-R

Simple -Quick and very High Quality

And the unit sells for about $170.00 at most department stores
compared to over a $1000 for a prosumer DVD-R machines with component Inputs

good luck

Are these units standalone or are they something you have to install into a computer?

These units are stand alone
just like an old VHS recorder execpt it records in DVD

You can even record your favorite TV shows
They are great for a quick and easy DVD of your video projects
