  • On any home-media player, the picture is only half the story. A good DVD/VCR combo player should have a solid sound system. Philips included support for Dolby Digital sound on the Philips DVD/VCR Player. This is crucial because almost all Hollywood films contain form of Dolby sound. Furthermore, this DVD/VCR combo is compatible with surround-sound systems so you can get the full audio experience the studios intended you to have.

    For decades, a four-head hi-fi VCR was the top of line in home entertainment. Such technology comprises the entirety of the VCR aspect of the Philip DVD/VCR Player. Manufacturers perfected this method of playback years ago, and almost nothing has changed for this iteration of the technology except for the natural miniaturization of the components. All VHS tapes in playable condition will work in this device.

  • DVDs and VHS tapes are the stars of the show on the Philips DVD/VCR player. However, we would be remiss if we didn't mention that this device also plays a number of other disc-based media. The DVD slot is compatible with compact discs from your music collection. In addition, the DVD portion of the device supports rewriteable disc media including CD-R/CD-RW, DVD-R/-RW, DVD+R/+RW and CD/SVCD.

    This feature essentially doubles the resolution of standard-definition images, making them suitable for viewing on a high-definition television or monitor. The Philips DVD/VCR Player lacks the additional feature of 1080p upscaling, which converts a standard-definition signal into a HD stream. The progressive scan by itself is acceptable, but including the upscaling feature would have made the Philips DVD/VCR player a more complete and modern device.

    Vintage General Electric VHS VCR Model 9-7115


    In a world where home televisions have a life span of less than a decade, new televisions in most homes display images in high definition. This rich picture quality simply didn't exist when DVD and VHS tapes were designed. Therefore, the Philips DVD/VCR player transmits a standard definition signal. However, the unit contains progressive scan technology to improve standard-definition images.

So you have the VCR, the capture device, and the macro box, processor, and detailer if you want them. What else do I need to check before I record?
