I have a Philips DVR-336 DVD Recorder and its never had an issue - solid build quality and too many features to list, and still has G-code so no mucking around with tv to programme the machine. This model only cost $AU399 (non hard-disk model) and its perfect. I wonder why they are doing this when Philips DVR recorders are so economic?


I have a philips DVR and for the most part it’s reliable. It occasionaly locks up and fails to remember timer settings. Now I see they’re phasing out current models. Going the cheap chinese route seems to be the norm these days with large companies. They will pay for it in the end.


Philips made DVD recorders? I love my Philips DVD/DivX player. Plays almost every AVI file I throw at it.
