Sony VHS to DVD Recorder with Hard Disk. Can’t tell you the model number because it’s super secret apparently. Comes with an 80 GB hard disk, an on-screen television program guide and HDMI output with upscaling. Which means that it should cope with just about every type of program transfer and recording requirement you’ve got. Sounds luscious, Jim. $399.95.
his three-in-one device allows you to transfer VHS recordings to DVDs with the touch of a button, and has a built-in 80 GB hard disk drive that can store television programs for future transfer to a DVD or VHS tape. The device is ideal for those who have a library of both DVD and VHS home videos but do not want to keep multiple components, or for those who prefer to keep recorded programs on a DVD instead of a DVR receiver. The unit has an on-screen television program guide (also compatible with DirectTv satellite receivers and most cable boxes), allowing you to easily determine which shows to record. It has 720p/1080i upscaling through an HDMI output, maximizing video resolution
