"DVD recorder does not record dialog of new shows."1.0 starson by orhankster
Pros: VHS recording capabilities work fine.
Cons: DVD recorder doesn't p/u dialog of primetime shows.
Summary: Unfortunately, when I bought this unit, it was the only unit on the market that had a digital tuner to record TV shows. With the new TV season in Fall of 2007, I had scheduled digital recordings of prime time TV shows such as "Heroes" and "House." When playing back, the dvd recorder picked up the background noise and music but not the actors' dialog. However, it picks up all speaking parts of commercials.
