Did anybody notice the component inputs?
This recorder is simply the precursor to the MRV700, which is mainly known for being one of the few ever made with component inputs. Of course, it only records in SD.
Actually both this recorder and the Polaroid 2001-G (has component inputs too) use standard PC type burners, with a direct IDE cable hookup. The technology wasn't around then for adapters, or for DVD recorder specific burners like on the current Maggies. You could replace the burners with PC burners.
It's well known several Toshiba RD-XS models will work with PC burners, but an adapter PCB card is required and comes with the unit.
