    I'm in the market for an SVHS VCR... upto ~£250 ($350).

    Primary concern is picture quality. Nice features would be satellite box control and S-VIDEO in/out.

    I got burnt with a JVC HRS6855 (it was probably a duff machine) so any personal recommendations (or VCRs to avoid!) would be greatly appreciated.

    Thank you.

    What was the problem with the JVC ?

    I have the same model and I think the picture quality is crap for SVHS !!

    My 4yr old Sanyo VHS gives better clarity - the colour bleed on reds is ridiculous.

    My problem was exactly your problem. Despite great reviews I think the picture quality of all recordings is terrible... certainly not what I expected of an SVHS VCR. So I'm returning it and looking for a replacement.

    For around £40 you can get a Panasonic NV-HS870S, no on hand experience, but I’ve had two off there machines and both gave brilliant pictures.
    The one it replaces the 860 gets good reviews.

    :cool: Ruby quartz shades.

    Anyone know anything about the JVC HR-S7860?
    I've tried the usual places for on-line reviews but can't find anything.
    Seems to be a step up from the JVC HRS6855 and includes Digipure which is supposed to increase recording quality a fair bit..
