    I have a Philips dvdr 1000 that I took in for repair to a philips repair shop on 11/20/2004, they called me in december and said that they couldn't repair the dvdr 1000. Since it was under warranty, philips would repalce the unit. On 12/31/2004 the repair center called me and said that philips would repalce it with a dvd740vr!!!

    Question, I think the dvd740vr is like a tivo kind of unit and its not really what I would call a dvdr unit, should I tell them to put the dvd740vr where the shine don't shine and hold off for a regular dvdr unit like the dvdr 615 etc? I already have a direct tv/tivo unit and I was using that to record to my dvdr 1000 (which I loved!!!). Thanks in advance to any advice.

    I googled the model dvd740vr,and it doesnt look like its even got a dvr with it.It looks to me like its just a dvd/vcr combo.
    Id tell them to shove it,the dvdr 1000 cost alot more I believe.Dont accept anything other than what you paid for, unless they want to upgrade you for free.

    Thanks for getting back to me. I thought it was piece of sh*t!!! I thought it was a low end modle and not even close to a dvdr. I did call them and I told them they would have to come up with something better. of course they said they would get back to me. Maybe I will hear from them sometime in Feb!!! What ever it takes I will play out their waiting game. Thanks again for yer input.

    yea its alot better than what they first offered, I did some research on it and it does seem a little bit better then the dvdr 1000. I guess I will take and see what happens, after all its free....Thanks again for putting up with me.
