I was wondering how many people have had no problems with their JVC recorder.


I for one have had no problems. I usually record one 1-hour show per night. Granted I have only had it for about 3 weeks at this writing.


Maybe my time will come, but for those considering buying one, I just wanted to post some positive news.

jkassay,

I'm glad you are getting good results. Since HDDVD is perhaps a way off and it might not ever be as good in PQ as the DVHS I hope this format works out. The PQ of the DTheater stuff is better than any of my local commercial theaters . Before I could say that with DVD with one exception and that was apparent resolution but now I have that too!:)


There was a poll done with about 100 owners and positive results ran about 80% .

I've had no problems w/ my 30k as well, although it has only been used on average about 2-3 hours per week, for the past 5 months. I currently only use it to "show-off" my HD set using HD-NET tapes and D-THEATER titles.


I have *never* recorded using this DVHS Recorder (mainly due to no readily available and compatible HD-capable source). I was just about to splurge on the T-165 when I decided to take a look at the forum for one last hint of negativity, and, well, let's say I found it.


My two choices now are to buy the T-165 and hope for the best (#1 that it works, #2 that the many recordings won't eventually damage or render my player useless). Or, to buy something like the My-HD card (or other Hi-Def PC Video Card) and rig up my PC to record, then transfer "good" stuff to tape using the XP operating system. I'm primarily only interested in recording big-events (like the U.S. Open) and creating a nice demo-tape of different material, so maybe the PC card is the better way to go... Oh and one other thing, I do not need the T-165 for OTA tuning, my TV has a built in OTA tuner, so the T-165's sole existence for me would be to feed the JVC30K. Any thoughts?

I use the T165 almost exclusively to tape OTA with my Mitsubishi VCR. I already owned the Toshiba DST-3000 tuner, and still use that for DirecTV. Fortunately my TV has two sets of component inputs and I can connect a STB to each one. I think other people are using similar configurations because 1394 is not available with an integrated DirecTV receiver, unless you purchase the 169time modified DTC-100.


The only problem I am having is finding a single remote to handle all my components. That is mostly due to limitations in the T165 remote and has been discussed in the HDTV hardware section.

So far, so good(fingers crossed) for me too with my 30K+T165 combo. Recording on Fuji SVHS tapes and all... no problems. It isn't as easy as simply using a SD VHS but it works for me. I do have to leave both units on for timed recordings though...?

Mine works perfectly too. I record using TDK and Maxell S-VHS tapes and they're fine.


All my D-theater tapes playback perfectly except one which I exchanged and the new tape played back fine.

I am using the JVC to record exclusively OTA from the T165. The only minor glitch is that I have to turn both units off before a scheduled Time record session begins. If I don't, I get a message that I have a "reservation", but I can't seem to figure out what to do next. If I shut the units off at that time, it misses the recording.

Hi all, Is it possible that the earlier models have had problems and the newer units may be slightly different?...PROWLER...
