Does anyone know of a DVD/VHS/DVR recorder? Tivo and Replay just don't work
well with C-band.

Thanks

I use the Panasonic DMR-E80H. Record to the hard drive, delete what you
don't want, DVD what you want to keep. They also have some newer models
with bigger hard drives. I've had mine almost a year and totally love it!
As for VHS, it's finally a dead horse.

I use a JVC DR-MXV1. Got it at eCost for about $300 less than list.

VHS is HiFi only, but it does play S-VHS. All signals can be routed to
composite with 480p with time base correction. Direct dubbing across all 3
subsystems is supported, but VHS has to be in raw mode (interlaced.)

Dubbing from/to HDD/DVD-R can work in direct copy mode.

Video quality is excellent for non HDTV.

The PVR has a satellite link mode, in which it will turn on and record
anytime the satellite line input goes live. Of course, I would prefer
integration the other way around, since my 4DTV 920 only has six timers.

The JVC DVD seem better had handling a variety of DVD-R from various
sources. I had Toshiba choke on home made DVDs that the JVC handles fine.

Pretty happy with it, it's not cheap. But I am trying to keep things simple.
