Since buying it new, I have always, and still do use my EH75 chiefly as a DVR, to record Dish SD. The only time I've ever recorded or played anything on the VCR was after I first bought it, just to make sure everything worked.
In fact, when it was out and people here were buying it, I don't really recall anybody ever saying they used the VCR. They mainly seemed interested in other features, like TVGOS, and the HDD for recording to and editing. For VHS to DVD projects, they used separate VCR's, and they usually recommended the same to anybody coming here for advice.
Like with all or most combo units, the EH75's VCR isn't all that great, anyway.
My mistake then. I never really used it, so I just assumed. I thought there were a couple that were OK - I just wasn't sure which ones.
The lack of control with "all-in-one" transferring was actually part of what I was including in there. Should've detailed a little more, but I was lazy.
