    Looking for a DVD that will match up with the capabilities of a:

    Toshiba 50H81

    Toshiba M-735 VCR

    I want to record DVD's to VHS tapes when the need arises.

    Is this possible in the $300 range?

    TIA,

    My Toshiba SD-4700 looks great on my 50HX81 and you can find it for around $200 - $225. I can't comment on the recording to VCR from DVD, as it is a forbidden topic here at the HTF.

    Steve,

    I hope you're just "yankin my chain" for crissakes.

    I suspect Steve is referring to this part of the forum rules:

    Yes Michael, that is what I was referring to.

    Thanks.

    Sorry, I thought all this "copying mess" was settled awhile back with the estimated "lost dollars" coming from the price of the DVD/Tapes/CD's and players. Does anybody really believe that it should cost $12+ for a CD? (greed)

    I didn't intend on reselling anything, just personal use, cause I didn't want to buy 4 DVD players, already have 6 VCR's, so "bootleg" was a harsh way of puttin it.

    Just my $1.4cts. after taxes.

    Maybe I should ask "which DVD players don't have macrovision".

    Hey Michael,

    That's cool with me, so I'll just shut up about it. :)

    Thanks,

    Question is, why would one want to copy the superior images from a superior format (DVD-Video) to an inherently low-res format (standard VHS) in the first place?

    Also, what Michael said about "matching" a DVD player to your widescreen Tosh is correct: just find the one you prefer--though I might suggest you make sure the unit is a progressive-scan player.

    Jack, if the 50h81 has 3:2 pulldown (and I think it does) do we really need a progressive player?

    Thanks,

    Jack,
    Kids don't care about picture quality, so why would I want to buy this bunch DVD players? [​IMG]

    Exactly. And the Sony DVP-S700N does this job admirably--at an MSRP of only $299 (street prices much lower). This player has been raved about in the home-theater press.
