Sorry for the ignorance,but will you need both the PV-HD1000 digital VCR and the TU-DST51 tuner/decoder, to record and play HDTV programming off of the 16:9 time DTC100 modification? I just found a PV-HD1000 at the local Sears, and bought it, but if I need the Tu-DST too, then either I will have to get one, or sell the digital VCR.

Wow, that was a nice find!

No, you won't need the TU-DST51. The modified DTC100 does the same job that the 51 does.

Can the PV-HD1000 record HD off of a Dish 6000 series receiver?

http://www.169time.com/ states that they will have a mod for the 6000 in Q2/2001. I don't know what recorders it will work with, but I'd be very surprised if it didn't work with the HD1000.

Do not hold your breath on the 6000 product from 169 time. They still have not delivered a single unit of their original product. By the time they start delivering their will be something better out.

169time has not delivered the modification for the DTC-100, as yet. It was originally promised before the SuperBowl back in January. Assuming they do deliver this, which they say will be real soon, it can act as the OTA DTV tuner for the PV-HD1000. It is also supposed to add DirecTV recording capability sometime in the near future. Some AVS members have serious questions about all this. See the recent 169time thread for more info, http://www.avsforum.com/ubb/Forum28/HTML/000091.html

Until (if?) they do deliver, the only DTV tuner that works with the PV-HD1000 is the Panasonic TU-DST50 or 51. These units do not have DBS record/playback capability built in, they only work for local over-the-air DTV.

They are Dish Network HDTV capable, if you have the Dish 5000 w/HD modulator (NOT the 6000). The 5000 and HD Modulator are also discontinued, but once in a while a pair shows up used in the AVS Classified Ads Forum.

You must have a DTV tuner with a IEEE1394 connection (like the TU-DST50 or 51) to record and playback DTV/HDTV from the PV-HD1000. The DVHS unit is just a "bit-bucket", the DTV tuner selects the channel for record (or live viewing) and decodes it for playback.

beware of a demo model if that is what sears has. I have heard issues with demo models not being made to record properly.
