 The JVC DR-MV150B is a DVD/VCR recorder announced by JVC on January 9th of 2009. It has a built-in ATSC tuner which makes it easy to record high definition TV programs without needing to use cables or other devices scheduling programs to get the desired results. The JVC DR-MV150B includes component and S-Video outputs, composite outputs and inputs, and coaxial and optical outputs. It has VHS-to-DVD dubbing and has an 1080p upconversion through HDMI for both the VHS and the DVD content, meaning you can convert your non HDMI shows to a better quality. It has a front DV panel input to connect a camcorder and transfer the information to DVD or VHS. The JVC DR-MV150B is more expensive than its fellow recorder, the DR-MV80B.

Easy to set up. Essentially same as old VCR style record/play/setup/TV connect. Picture quality excellent. Recorded quality of digital TV program on DVD is excellent. Treat it as you would a good CD player or a computer that needs a little more time than simple recording tape (like a VHS tape), and you'll understand how to use this. I like it very much. Using HDMI cable the setup is simple, sound and picture excellent. (6-foot cord from Monoprice, in any color you like, is just $4 -- exactly same as $50 cable from store, no matter what the sales people say - DO NOT spend more than $10 on an HDMI cable!!!) Getting second unit for my kid. This is a good unit and JVC stands behind it. I have only good things to say about it.
