Extremely odd is right, rgazzara. Even our older Samsung VCR passes through when off. But call Crutchfield sales and ask about the technical notes on this unit, and that's what you'll find. The other thing is, it seems this unit does not pass through any HD at all (all HD is downconverted to SD). So I would definitely not want to watch TV through this box anyway, since we do see a few HD broadcasts via the five local digital channels we receive at no extra charge over coax. It would appear that Sony assumed anyone without a cable box or satellite receiver box, who therefore needed this recorder with its tuners, would not be seeing any HD shows anyway. Wrong.

Not to argue the point, but are you sure that you and Cruchfield are discussing the same issue? For example, if Crutchfield (and Sony) thought you were asking about HD signal passing through the AV output connectors (composite, S-video, or Component), then I would agree with them because no current DVD recorder does this. Plus in order to get a signal out of these connectors, the recorder must be on.

These AV outputs do not pass an HD signal because the recorder has to down convert the HD to SD in order to record on a DVD, and so the AV outputs see this down converted signal.

Perhaps this is what the Crutchfield and Sony reps are talking about. That would make sense.

anyone heard when the next generation of DVD recorders are going to be released?

I'm encouraged by the better digital tuner chip in the recent coupon boxes, specifically the LG chip (in the Insignia, and Zenith).
