As Gizmom stated it is very easy to edit out commercials. What you do is split the show at the commercial break and then again when the show starts back up. Thus you have isolated the commecial break into its own program and simply delete it. It's best to burn your DVD right after doing all this and then delete the program pieces. The content tables of the hard drive not to mention the fragments you create by doing this can slow the machine done and could eventually mess up some recordings as the drive fills up.

It has commercial skip and you can set the length of time for the skip button. It is very, very easy to edit out commercials before burning to DVD. I was very happy with it.

Last year there was a 160GB Phillips but only an 80GB Magnavox. The current model 160GB Phillips and the 160GB Magnavox came out about the same time I think. The Phillips plays DIVX but I don't believe the Magnavox does. Both recorders have ATSC tuners and do a pretty good job picking up OTA or digital cable channels and sub-channels but they only save(record) the picture in 480p. It is not a bad picture but you can see that it is not 720p quality when you play back the recording. I have both the Phillips and last years 80GB Magnaox and pleased with both.

Yes... that's one of the great things about this product. And you can also watch from the beginning a show that is already in the process of being recorded... i.e., a show that you set to start recording at 7 PM, and now it is 7:20 PM and you decide you want to go ahead and watch it from the beginning is totally possible! I love it.

Closed Caption

Can Magnavox or Phillip DVR handle closed caption correctly? I bought a RCA DVR several years ago, it can not handle closed caption very well.

I assume you are referring to recording. I did some research on this. These units appear similiar, however, in this area, very different. If you turn on the CC during a recording, the Magnavox will record it. When you play it back, it is there. You cannot turn it off. The Philip's, however, will not record it, and you don't have the option to view CC for recorded material.

How long can you pause live TV?

I assume you mean leave the machine on pause while it is still recording. About 10 min. If that is not long enough for you you can just start it recording and when you are ready to watch use the title button and select the show being recorded. Choose play from the beginning and watch while it is being recorded. This is actually better because if you use pause live TV the darn thing won't let you save the show if you want to. It automatically deletes when you cancel.

Yes. Just connect a cable from the cable box to the external input and record from E1 instead of a TV tuner channel. You can even do timed recordings from the cable box but the cable box would have to be on the correct channel.

No. Recording to the HD is no different than using a VCR except you have about 60 hours of SP recording space. You can also watch a program that was previously recorded while recording a new program or you can watch the program you are recording in a time-shift mode.
