You must be joking!!

We have the year 2012 and not 1995.
What does a blank DVD cost these days???

Just relax a little, [B]Zap[/B] might just be sitting on a huge CD-R stash or something.

Virtually all recent DVD burners are also good at CD burning.

If you want to have CD scanning capability as well, I would go for an Optiarc burner. The latest series is the AD-5280S/7280S/7283S. Very good CD and DVD write quality, and also supporting quality scanning for CDs and DVDs. (An alternative would be buying a used older Plextor burner, the 712/716/755/760 models support Sanyo HD-BURN which supports storing more than 1 GB on a regular 700 MB CD-R.)

If you meant standalone recorders, you’ll probably have to go for a DVD recorder as I’m afraid VCD is an obsolete technology.

Relax I am just kind of old school, when it comes to
saving some episodes of old and new t.v. shows. As a
matter of 2012 I do save some on my wi-fi tablet. I am
just kind of acheap skate when it comes to buying discs.

Ugly workaround:
record on DVD then convert to VCD on the PC like 10 years ago (just had a computer magazine from 2001 in my fingers where they had some article about that. Running the computer for one day in order to convert one movie was pretty normal in these days)

MCIAHEL,
I understand what you are saying,and I do know how to
do that. However it takes the cheap skate of buying dvd’s
back in the picture. I am talking about a vcd burner that can
connect to an hdtv,and has a built in t.v. tuner

Define “hdtv”.
Define “the built in tv tuner”.

You are talking about hdtv and vcd in the same sentence, that doesnt fit together ever. There is no kind of “AV connectivity” VCD burner device, and never will be. It doesnt even make any sense. Imagine how “much” you could store on a CD/VCD if the source is SD or even HD…
And finally, you always forgot the copy prevention systems involved, either with MV, or with HDMI…HDCP etc etc.
