It works with Panasonic combos. I have tried it on ES30V and ES35V. Just go out the DVD/VHS common output and into one of the inputs such as IN1. I have not tried it with a JVC however.

The one thing I don't like, is when you turn on the unit, you cann't watch the TV channel for about 20 seconds. I run the cable through the unit before connecting to my TV, because the TV only has a cable input.Some days it seems as if all I'm doing is rearranging deck chairs on the Titanic
The Sima device I bought at Best Buy several years ago "cleans" the video, and therefore removes the macrovision signal. Therefore it should work. I will try it soon.
I have used the Sima CT-Q1 Video Enhancer and Duplicator. I got it at Best Buy a few years ago. I don't know if they still sell them. It cleans the video which gets eliminates the macrovision protection.
I have not yet tried it yet, since I have been busy. A few months ago my 26 in Toshiba TV purchased as a Demo unit in 1988 failed. I tried to get it fixed and the tube had shorted out. So last night I purchased the Toshiba 26 in Theater Wide 26hf66 HDTV unit for $545 including tax. The picture was good, except for the bad cable reception for the networks. However I will get the HD cable box tonight and try it out.
I watched the DVD Star Wars Ep III using my new TV and JVC DR-MV7U Recorder. It had a great picture without using an HDMI cable. I hope the HD TV stations will be much better with the HD Cable box from Insight Cable.Some days it seems as if all I'm doing is rearranging deck chairs on the Titanic

I just scored JVC DR-M10S off of ebay for $66 shipped. Hopefully it will meet all my needs. I suggest if anyone is looking to purchase this particular model from ebay to ask the seller if it had the loading problem. Supposively the unit I bought had the problem but was fixed by jvc. I can't wait to start transferring my vhs collection again (no luck with my pioneer 220 the first time )
If you have it, check it right away. I had a friend who had his repaired by JVC last month for the loading problem. It worked for one hour after he got it back and the units dvd drive door would not open. He could hear rattling inside the unit.
Do not open the unit or JVC will not repair it again. He did not open it but called them immediately. The second repair went well and the unit has been working fine. Both repairs were free and it was 2004 unit.
I have a JVC DRM 100S that id be willing to part with if that doesnt work out.
There have been no loading issues or anything like that.
I just won it today so I have to wait a little bit until I can really test it. From what I have read it looks like jvc has a pretty decent customer service.
If the dm10 doesn't meet my expectations, I will drop you a pm.
You got it.
Go for Pioneer, JVC is not worth all the trouble and bugs, the loading bug issue alone should scare any clear thinking person away.(Smurfs not included, ) I have the 220 and 531 and they have been trouble free and user friendly. I recently converted a 7 hour VHS to 1 DVD with my 531 for a friend, the result was as good or perhaps better then the original VHS. I was pleasantly suprized.
Dont take this personally but there is absolutly no way you can convert a 7 hr vhs video to 1 DVD and it look better than the original. Especially with the Pioneer 220.

Right now ... I'm using the Panasonic EH50 ... with the 100 GB harddrive in them. I bought one of them from Circuit City and the other 3 from Ebay. I couldn't find them anywhere else in early spring 2006. The one from CC ... was a Table Top sale ... no box ... but everything was included ... in a clear plastic bag.
I have one connected to each of my Directv HDTV boxes [High Definition DVR (HR10-250) HD Tivo / HD DVR] with 250 GB hard drives. One in my bedroom and one in my living room. [The other two are not being used at this time] ... I record to the harddrive in the Directv box and then transfer to the EH50 and sit in my easy chair ... trimming out the commercials with the remote. Sci-Fi Friday ... 3 one hour shows with commercials removed is about 2 HRs and 11 minutes.
P.S. ... I've just found out ... the HR10-250 ...has been replaced / discontinued ...
I may be wrong and someone can correct me if I am, but what he means by close the first layer is that when the first layer is filled with information the disc will stop recording, then you haveto finalize, or maybe push record again. Either way if you pressed record on a DL disc and walked away youd only come back to a half full disc.
lacywest, here is what the manual says about recording on double layer disks.
page 4: note: *1
"You can record onto the second layer of dual- or double -layer disks after closing the first layer (see page 35). You will no longer be able to record to the first layer after you do this ( see page 16). When playing the title recorded on both layers, video and audio may momentarily cut out when the unit is switching layers."
page 17: note *3
" It is not possible to record continuously from the first layer to the second layer".
hope this explains it better.

They not only record from many sources very good but has a quite good playback. And editing is a breeze after a couple walk throughs.
The Amazon price is $347.95...still a good price...especially with free shipping.
I also replaced my 220s. but going to get it back into my system somehow. Running low on inputs. Got eleven but I guess something has to go.
Keep in mind also that B & H has a real fairly large B&M store in manhattan not far from the Lincoln Tunnel, that is where I picked up my 531h on a Sunday morning. The store was jammed, They will validate parking if you park in one of the parking lots they work with. List of those with a map on their website. From what I saw going out the door that sunday they must buy in truckloads.
Since B&H is a large reputable dealer I'd have no qualms about buying from them over the Internet or phone whereas some unknown website that has who knows who or where behind it, nah.
The only reason I went in person was I wanted to play with it that weekend and the cost to go pick it up was no more than having it shipped.
Edit: Plus I'm pretty sure that B&H is an authroized dealer. An unauthorized seller can be a problem if you buy from them and need warranty sevice.
I just remembered It was Walmart I bought the 531h from and it was B & H I bought the JVC 9911(?) S-VHS VCR from.
Same reason for going I wanted to complete my VHS to DVD chain and play with my new toys right away.

Besides the one you mentioned, the other online dealers I see mentioned are Vann's (in Montana, I think), and Onecall. The latter claims to be authorized, I'm not sure about the other two. I think Crutchfield & / or J & R had Pioneers at one time, not sure about now.
