Re: TCM -- Anti-copying Code?

markfp, Philips branded DVD recorders and HDD/DVD recorders (manufactured under license by Funai) exited the US market in 2008. My two Philips HDD/DVD recorders are the 3575 (from 2007) and the 3576 (from 2008), both manufactured by Funai. My 3576 is currently my most heavily used HDD/DVD recorder. ...

Re: TCM -- Anti-copying Code?

pvitari, Recording from DirectTV is the subject of this recent thread at the AVS Forum: m My contribution to AVS Forum discussions have the "DigaDo" identity. When I became an AVS member I chose that identity because Panasonic DVD recorders have the "Diga" logo, and, as a Panason...

Re: TCM -- Anti-copying Code?

My experience is similar to that of markfp, never a problem recording TCM. Since September 2005 I've recorded around 6,000 DVDs, most of them TCM programming recorded with my many Panasonic, Magnavox and Philips recorders. Beginning in December 2009 I transitioned from TCM SD to TCM HD. Currently, I...

I own four Magnavox 2160 HDD/DVD recorders, three of the original 2160 models manufactured in 2008 and one 2160 “A” version manufactured in 2009. All of these are outstanding pro...

Re: GORT; KLAATU BARRADA NICKTU

Speaking of lookalikes, we have a nickname for the Zenith DTT901 Coupon Eligible Converter Box (for TV reception with an antenna). The nickname is "GORT" because the front panel LED reminds one of the light that appears when Gort's visor is opened just before the ray zaps and disintegrates...

Re: General announcement to the SSO membership

Once while I was moving I wondered where to put the remote where it wouldn't be damaged and I could find it easily.

After settling in I searched for about a month without finding it. Then one day I was out driving and had to stop suddenly. The remote slid out from under the driver's seat.

What's this? At our house in Portland Oregon it's 105 in the shade on the east side of the house. Since it's only 3:30 p.m. it will go higher. Portland's current "official" temperature is 102 at PDX. It's cooler out there along the Columbia River. It's expected to be even warmer for the ne...

The Magnavox 2160 is the only one of these models that is currently available in the USA. The 2160 is sold through walmart.com. T...

For those interested in hard drive/DVD recorders I have updated and revised the information in my 20 December 2008 post.

One poster at the AVS Forum wrote that Panasonic advised him that their line of DVD recorders/combo recorders is being discontinued.
