Bikers and ferrai is it ok with you two if I post info on the Toshiba models for this guy? Or do you consider this redundant since it appears in another AVS Forum post?
This is what I have on Toshiba models and I don't know how super accurate it is:
Toshiba D-R550 - QAM - 230 - March - Alt 1 Alt 2 ATSC, QAM, NTSC
$229.99, April 2007)
Toshiba D-VR650 - QAM - VHS - 275 - March super-multi-format, VCR
combo unit, ATSC, QAM, NTSC, ($279.99, April 2007)
Toshiba's entry level D-R400 single deck DVD recorder offers HDMI with
upconversion to 720p, 1080i and 1080p. It also offers one touch
recording and a DV input. The step-up model, the D-R550, adds ATSC,
QAM and NTSC tuners.
The top of the line Toshiba D-VR650 Super Multi Drive DVD recorder +
VCR combination unit offers ATSC, QAM and NTSC tuners and HDMI with
upconversion to 720p and 1080i. In addition to recording and playback
of DVD-R/-RW/+R/+RW, this model also offers recording and playback of
DVD-RAM. The D-VR650 features Toshiba's high quality DVD recorder
capabilities and a 4 Head Hi-Fi VCR capable of high speed bi-
directional dubbing. For added flexibility and convenience to
consumers, Toshiba will also offer the D-VR600 which includes the same
features as the D-VR650 without the tuners.
So it appears that Toshiba will be selling 2 DVD recorders without
tuners. The D-R400, and the D-VR600 that adds VHS.
