DVD/VCR Player??

3242 Views 15 Replies 5 Participants Last post by  MishMouse
My current RCA DVD/VCR combo is on its last legs and I need to get a different one.
I have been looking around and I have been very confused by the new stuff that came out in just the last 5 years. I have a Samsung 27" HD TV that is 1080i/1080p and I also have Dish Network though I only subscribe to their family package. So I would like to get a DVD/VCR combo that can change the normal definition into HD so I can use the full capabilities of the TV.

I have been looking around for the past 3 weeks and I am still undecided on which one to get, from what I read, JVC, Panasonic, Sony and Samsung all have models that can upconvert both DVD/VCR into HD. Then I read the reviews and my head starts to spin, I see anywhere from the best thing since sliced bread to total garbage on the same unit :dunno:

Which DVD/VCR combo would you recommend?

First of all ...Welcome to the forum :wave:

Which DVD/VCR combo would you recommend?
Couple of months ago I got a Samsung DVR/VCR combo and I'm happy with it :bigsmile:

Best part is that I spend almost $50 (I got it here )
How is your Samsung DVD/VCR treating you?
One of the combos I am looking a is the Samsung VR-375.
I think is what I got ...is working fine (I haven't used the VCR yet :whistling:).

As Tony mentioned, even if a DVD states that us capable of 1080p picture, is an up-conversion not true HD ...but is a lot better than regular DVD's :yes:
I got that Samsung VR 375 DVD/VCR Player. It does a fairly good job at upconverting...
I got the same combo ...I like it, but haven't used the VCR yet :yes: (by the way, I got mine from an auction too, mine came with a tape inside but wasn't stuck :bigsmile:)
I needed one with a tuner since I tape off the antenna but I have a question which I hope someone can answer. If you have satellite or cable, do you use the box as the tuner if your DVD/VCR doesn't have one? I was just curious how you would wire that into your setup.
When there's no tuner on the combo the only way you can record from TV is using the line output on TV and any input on the combo ...most of them have two or three. :yes:
That is way to funny, :rofl: I got mine from the same seller, it must come as an added "feature" to the product. :joke:

The one that was stuck in mine was a American Idol..
Don't tell me....BestBuy on ebay???

The tape on my VCR said "Lake Land"...I don't know if it has to do with the Lakers or a piece of land in a lake :bigsmile:
