The Magnavox MRV640 DVD Recorder (manufactured by Philips circa 2003) has a computer-type IDE DVD Drive that records only to DVD+R and DVD+RW discs, according to the Owner's Manual.

Here are a few photos:

Did anybody notice the component inputs?

This recorder is simply the precursor to the MRV700, which is mainly known for being one of the few ever made with component inputs. Of course, it only records in SD.

Actually both this recorder and the Polaroid 2001-G (has component inputs too) use standard PC type burners, with a direct IDE cable hookup. The technology wasn't around then for adapters, or for DVD recorder specific burners like on the current Maggies. You could replace the burners with PC burners.

It's well known several Toshiba RD-XS models will work with PC burners, but an adapter PCB card is required and comes with the unit.

I missed the component inputs when I was snapping the photos. But sure enough, they're there.

This Craig's List $10 recorder lacked the (Panasonic/Technics type) power cord, remote and manual. I've downloaded the manual from the Magnavox website. Perhaps I'll set it up tomorrow.

The Philips DVDR72/DVDR75 has component inputs as well. Of course it only accepts/records 480i(480p?) signals.

I still have my DVDR72, but recently removed it from my rack.

Was there a question in there somewhere?

I have a Polaroid 2001-G, and not only does it have component inputs, BUT, for reasons I don't understand, but like, it ignores any copy protection in the video signal. It also strips CP from any video signal that passes through it, so it works like a video filter. And yes, it only accepts 480i as an input. Its editing capabilities are Neanderthal compared to the Panasonics, but it works.
