    :clap: Hi.....I am new here, been following this forum - very informative. Help me to decide between LG RH7823W VS Panasonic DMR-EH50. The Panasonic is impressive - 80GB HDD, 2 S-Vid in, 1 S-Vid out, 2 RGB Scart, 1 component set, 1 SD Card slot but without a DV-In connection for digital DV camcorders, while LG has 160GB HDD, DV-in, 1 set component, 1 S-Vid In (front) and 1 S-Vid out (rear), 2 Card slots with no RGB scarts at all...but scart's no problem, as in this region, scart connectors are not used. Price being same - about USD 550/- for both, which one is a better buy ?? What could be logic behind a company like Panasonic to come out with a good set, but without a DV-Input ! LG looks to be a better buy pricewise, but any indication on it's performance ?? anyone ?? :lease:

    Probably only a person who has the two machines could answer this question for you. The Panasonic machine has the convenience of using DVD-RAM discs whilst I do not think the LG supports DVD-RAM. Why Panasonic discontinued the use of the DV input seems a mystery. It has been commented upon several times in this forum. It isn't on the Panasonic E85 machine I have but it is on the E60 Panasonic which is a machine I don't often use now. Like LG most of the JVC machines have DV input. Just click on the illustrated models in this link to check.

    If the DV connection is important to you then you will have to base your choice of puchase accordingly.

    Thanks Royold....let me focus the question - transfer of DV tape through DV (i-link) input - is it in any way superior to S-Video transfer from the Camcorder ? not the theoretical stuff - digital to digital as against digital - analogue - digital - practically does the picture look any different / better if copied through DV input ??

    Sorry I cannot answer your specific question as I do not possess any camcorder to use this with. I have never used the DV input on my Panasonic E60 machine. In fact the only camera I have is a Minolta last used in 1983 I think! It still has the part used film inside.

    Perhaps someone who does use a modern camera & the DV input will answer this for you. There has been much comment re Panasonic removing this particular socket from
    current models so evidently, some people on here do have a use for it.

    Hi,
    Can anybody comment on the LG RH7624W DVD Recorder. The DVD,S I burn can not be copied by a DVD write on a PC. I believe that on must use the VR mode. Has anybody got experience with this sort of thing?
    Regards,
    Martin Potgieter.

    :hiya: Ended up buying the 160GB LG Rh7823W, I certainly need the DVI input for the Camcorder as well as for the Digital Camera. Will test the machine - and let you all know how good / bad (hopefully not) it is in about a weeks time. Exterior certainly is neat - rear panel also - no clustering nor crowded. It is the first time I have moved away from the japanese makes for this LG. Touchwood !

    Hi,

    To enable the LG recorder play NTSC region movies:
    - push "setup" on your remote
    - move the cursor to the padlock icon on the screen
    - while there, press the 0 (zero) key on the remote Seven times
    - a confirming message will appear announcing the player is now able to play other region movies

    Enjoy,,,
