Anyhoo, the thing also works pretty well for archiving stuff off the TiVo and, now, the Charter DVR.
Come to think of it, I could really use a better VCR, and a combo deal would make it easier for me to archive tapes onto DVD.
Question for you techies though, do combo players sacrifice quality/options in comparison to stand-alone DVD-R units?
The one I bought is junk -- I'm cheap that way -- but like Colt 45 it gets the job done. Lately I've gotten better results archiving VHS tapes by running them into a TV tuner card in a PC.
