This may seem like an odd request, but I've used older style Sony VCR's in my everyday work. ( Horse racing analysis / review that involves constant cue and review, often stepping back a few seconds, forward a few seconds, use of 2x speed, etc ) The older Sony vhs models ( slv-1000, slv 676, slv 575, etc ) are perfect for this, with a jog button, and both search /ff / rewind buttons

The problem is it's getting harder to get these old machines. I usually junk a good one when it dies as. 9 out of 10 sold on Ebay usually have problems

I need to see if anyone knows of a dvd player that can come close to the quickness of the cue and review features on those old vhs machines. Quick, near instantaneous response is a must. I prefer NOT to use a computer to review this video material, as it's just too cumbersome

Any suggestions are appreciated

Thanks

Never actually used one myself, but the Pioneer DVD-V5000 Professional DVD player looks like it might be good for your situation.

The Magnavox H216MW9A or new MDR513H std def DVD recorders with HDD might serve your needs well.

Besides the normal FF/REW, they can search by time, move fwd and back in user-set increments with SKIP/REPLAY rocker button, Mark up to 6 spots in a recording for easy return, frame advance, slow-play w/o audio, slo/fast replay w/audio (0.8X and 1.3X), and more.

Here's a help file that describes most of the play options.

Here's a help file describing the DISPLAY menu with several playback-control features incl. search, Marking, etc.

Most play-mode movements (FF/REW/NEXT/PREV) and pause-mode movements (frame advance, slo-mo) are "instantaneous" on HDD and DVD recordings. On DVDs only, large moves such as SKIP FWD/BACK and NEXT/PREV (chapter moves to uer-settable time increments up to 5 min.) may take ~3 sec or so.

Thanks guys

Wajo, apparently you wrote the book, an amazing amount of info on these recorders!
Could you answer one question for me
I believe you posted the that the time required to complete a variable replay from button press to play on a 2160 ( playing a dvd ) was appx 3-4 seconds. Does that same time frame apply for multiple button presses, say maybe 2 presses for variable replay or maybe a variable reply + variable skip??
Basically, can I do a couple quick button presses and still get back to the play mode within 4 seconds

Thanks

I think you're just asking about timing on a DVD since the "3-4 sec" only applies to them... I have to change that to 3-5 sec by the way, seems to vary based on how big or small the move is... smaller takes longer, don't know why? I used 1-min SKIP, 30-sec REPLAY in my initial tests.

For DVDs, the SKIP/REPLAY moves are the only ones that are slow, ~3-5 sec, and they won't accumulate like on the HDD. You really have to wait for a move to almost end before pressing for another move. HDD moves are near instantaneous and can accumulate.

Both SKIP/REPLAY and NEXT/PREV moves are user settable in the increments described in the help files.

Understood and thanks
For my particular use that would almost mandate a copy of a dvd to HDD prior to using
