    Was looking at the Philips DVD Player/Recorder at Best Buy. Think it was # DVDR985. I love all the features. Easy to record. Lots of plug-ins. I wanted to know 2 things:

    1st is how is the quality? I want to record my mint (1 view for each) Star Wars and Indiana Jones VHS tapes to DVD. I also want to put old family tapes on DVD as well.

    2nd is can it record 5.1? If I want to copy a DD 5.1 DVD will all the audio tracks transfer over?

    Chris,

    There is an article on this recorder in Stereophile Guide to Home Theater Oct 2002. I am newly interested in this unit as well and am searching posts on the subject. There are a number of them at this forum. I would also like to hear testimonies from owners of this unit.

    I don't think you can record/Copy DVDs because of the copy protection.
