Help finalising DVDs from a JVC DR-MV80B

post #1 of 9
Thread Starter 
Greetings, folks.

First, thanks to all who responded so generously to my earlier query on whether DVDs burned on a particular JVC DR-MV80B could be finalised on another DR-MV80B. Apparently, yes.

Second, is there someone out there who could finalise 3-4 DVDs which I have burned on my now expired DR-MV80B? (Unfortunately, my search for a replacement JVC DR-MV80B hit a blank wall: the only units available are refurbished ones with limited warranties.) I will be happy to pay both ways S&H and any other charges. The material is group workshops training in dance. Otherwise, I would have to re-record a few hours worth of material from my camcorder to a new DVD/VHS recorder: doable, but tedious.

Third, I would appreciate any suggestions on a replacement new DVD/VHS recorder. (My camcorder is a SD minidv and I have no immediate plans to upgrade to an HD model.) The readily available new DVD/VHS recorder models seem to be Toshiba DVR620 and Panasonic DIGA DMR-EZ48VK.

Many thanks and greatly appreciate any advice or help provided.

If you don't need a tuner you might go with the Toshiba. If you need a tuner you might go with the Panasonic.

Better yet get a Magnavox HDD/DVD Recorder. These Magnavox models have a hard drive and tuners. Having a hard drive is a huge advantage.

For more information start your research at the first post in Wajo's sticky thread, the gateway to a wealth of information concerning these outstanding HDD/DVD Recorders:

Thanks very much! It's a lot of stuff and I am not sure I understand it fully, but I am wading through it per your recommendation.

You might want to wait just a bit. See this post:

I have to agree with DigDo on this. I am not a fan of any non HDD equipped DVD recorder. The increase of functionality in having an HDD is incredible. People (here) who have said that they don't need or want an HDD, once they got a recorder with one, have come back and admitted that they can't understand how they ever use a machine without one.smile.gif

With that said, the Magnavox, 513, or 151 would be great choices. The now mythical follow-on unit(517?) would also be good, if it ever evolves from vaporware, to hardware.rolleyes.gif There is a wealth of information here about them, as well as lots of personal support if you have a specific problem or question. If a tuner is NOT necessary, there are also the Panasonic EH59/69 models available from B&H and J&R. The Panasonic's are well established and have a good reputation, but again, they do NOT have a tuner so you would need a separate calbe box or off the air tuner to feed them. They are US gray market, so they do not have a Panasonic warranty, thought the sellers are providing a minimal sort of warranty.

HDD equipped recorders certainly give more flexibility, but for those who already have a satellite or cable DVR, a non-HDD dvd recorder will work just fine. It means you have to edit in real time (IE: pause during commercials etc), but it's certainly doable.

Years ago, owning a proprietary hardware sat receiver with HDD was a bit like giving yourself fully to the sat/cable company as they could (and would) charge you anything for repairs/replacement. However, these days most cable/sat companies offer receivers with USB hdd capability. You can literally buy a dozen external drives and never need the bandit technical support most media companies "provide".

nitinkibe,
Did you find a solution for you predicament?
I am really surprised that someone has not offered to finalize these for you. If I had comparable equipment, I would have gladly done this for you.
Remember people, part of what makes forums a good thing is helping others when you can. cool.gif

The thing is I'm not aware of any current posting AVS member who owns that type of JVC. Again I don't know JVC models but if the MV80b is a older JVC built JVC the OP might have luck finalizing the DVDs in a Panasonic, at least thats what I read from a poster at VideoHelp. If the JVC is a newer LG?? built JVC then you'd probably need the same model number or possibly a LG of the same vintage(not many LG owners that regularly post around here either). Mostly Funai, Panasonic, Pioneer and a few Toshiba XS series regulars seem to post on AVS smile.gif

Don't forget Sony. We get the occasional post for those, too. smile.gif
