I am running this test and will have the results in this thread soon. I used an S-Vid cord output from my JVC S-VHS into the S-Vid inputs of both respective DVDR's. 2002 Tape is an originally recorded S-VHS Fuji EP tape but that is good. We will see which unit does better. I consider this a good test. Both units are factory default settings for this. That is THE only WAY to fairly test it. Otherwise you are saying one unit is more of a hassle than the other for the Average Joe.
