"Philips DVDR610"

Be sure to download and upgrade the latest software from Philips website before commencing too far with the inital installation of this machine. Ignore all the negative reviews about remote controls not working. I initially thought that mine had gone duff too, replacing batteries etc.. did nothing. Moral of the story is - just don't go pressing buttons until you've read the instructions thoroughly, pressing "TV" renders the remote useless until you press "DVD".

Excellent machine, great pictures,whisper quiet, robust and technically superior to other in this proce range. Glad I bought this one. Handbook a bit naff though. Any troubles with this DVDR are most likely down to the user and not the machine. Recordable DVD machines are not necessarily as easy to install and setup as the old faithful VCR, and so some people may get confused when connecting to TV or SKY box. Just follow the instructions and diagrams carefully and all should be well.

    After reading your other reviews, this one does not sound like your words. Sounds like a cut out of a book. Sorry. Bev
