 The JVC DR-MV80B is a DVD/VCR recorder announced by JVC on January 9th of 2009. It has tuner free recording using the JVC's Timer Link, a feature that allows the camera to record TV programs by connecting to a satellite or cable set-top box via an AV cable. Once it is connected, the user picks the program using the box's electronic guide and timer function, the video camera senses the signal, powers up the recorder and starts recording. It automatically stops when the show is over. The JVC DR-MV80B 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.

Ours has not worked for over a year. of course it broke right after the warrenty was up. Dvd wont play anything and we cant get our vhs tape out of the machine. I bought a no name brand dvd vhs combo from the swap meet for $15 that has worked like a charm or twice as long as jvc did. I will never buy another JVC product. Not good.
