It's a Philips DVD recorder.
Anyway, can you suggest me a DVD recorder? I want to use a RF cable and I want to record one channel while watching another....

Does your cable company require the use of a cable box to watch basic cable channels? The days of analog transmissions, where the cable wire running to the recorder, then from the recorder out to the tv, allowing you to watch one channel, while recording on another are pretty much over, except for perhaps, smaller cable systems that aren't a part of gigantic corporations.


Dazed and confused over high tech.

No, they don't require a box. Well I found many DVD recorders with a built in tuner, so they can record the channel which is tuned, right?. I'll split my RF cable to TV and DVDr. So I can record one channel on the DVDr while watching another on the TV, Right?
Sorry for bad english......

In theory, but it depends on some other factors.

Where are you located?

edit: I saw you're located in a PAL country, so you need to be sure the recorder can tune PAL channels at the very least, and whether or not it is digital or analog. If you can get cable from the wall with no box, then assuming you have the right tuner, you should be able to use it the way you want. But again, it can depend.

Thanks,
DVDR3408- I found it to be the one I need (it supports PAL), later I saw its successors spreads up to DVDR3576.

The Philips 3576 is a nice DVD recorder with a HDD, it hasn't been available in N. America for many years but they have proven to be very reliable, much better than non HDD models.
