Just bought it at a Walmart yesterday for $149. Has an SDTV digital tuner that works with either off air (either analog or digital) or analof/digital cable. I have it hooked to the Motorola cable DVR by it's rear A/V video input plus the tuner is hooked up to an outside TV antenna since Comcast (Houston) doesn't carry all of the local DTV channels such as the other 4 TBN networks, two of the OIN networks, one spanish language PBS DTV channel or a second CW music network called The Tube. Channel changing takes about 2 seconds as it scans the channel before it finally shows it. Oh & if you load a blank or recorded DVD it takes about 10 seconds to load while whatever TV channel you were watching is displayed. When you stop recording it takes a few seconds for the DVD recorder to write to disc but for me thats not a problem. Basically this is my first DVD recorder & I'm happy with it. So far it can record on 5 different DVD media's I've tried. The recorder will burn on both + or -R and this is what I've tried with it. Some old stock 4x Verbatim, 16x Maxell (Prodisc & Ritek), 16x Imation made by Moser Bour, 8x Imation made by CMC. All of this is -R. I haven't tried any +R media & the recorder will not burn (according to the manual) +R DL media. Anybody else have one of these? If so what are your comments?
