Why do I need a tuner? Devices with built in tuners allow you to schedule recordings without having your TV tuned to a specific channel. It allows you to record a show while watching another show. For individuals with cable or satellite programming, a device with an analog tuner will work well. If you receive your programming from an antenna, you will need to either get a digital converter box with a device that has an analog tuner or get a device that has a digital tuner. This model includes a digital tuner

    The unit came packed securely and was shipped and received in good time. It arrived clean and in perfect working order. Both the DVD and VHS play without issue. VHS to DVD dubbing has a small learning curve for the specific unit but performed flawlessly. Some say that to dub from VHS to DVD you need to select VHS on the remote and then dub. This has been found to not be the case for me. I am pleased with the purchase, unit condition, and performance.

    LG RC897T DVD/VCR Recorder

    Posted by Rodney L. Bacigal on 3rd Aug 2023

    Item arrived in good condition. Set up was straightforward with printed manual. However, HDMI connection with either the TV or the audio-video receiver does not work. I tried all the suggested fixes in the manual, even changing out the HDMI cable, but still receive a distorted, green image of broadcasts. I'm keeping it because I suspect the LG unit's HDMI port is not compatible with my equipment (old Sony TV and new Yamaha receiver) unlike my old, kaput Sony DVD/VCR recorder. I get good results in recording and playback through component and optical cables. I can't find a Sony replacement so I'm desperate and will keep the unit.

    LG DVD/VCR combo Player-Recorder

    Posted by Wilton on 20th Jul 2023

    This is the second LG DVD/VCR player-recorder I've purchased. I liked the first one so much, I bought a second one. The price was great! It was delivered within a week (5-days, I think) and the service and expertise of Porter Electronics is exceptional. I'm 100-percent satisfied with their products and service.

    Just received my DVD/VCR combo and it works perfectly. So glad I was able to find a replacement as my old one bit the bullet. So far works like brand new.
