SOME DAY we will all be recording HI DEF for everything. Until then, this unit gets your old VHS tapes onto GOOD disks and records digital TV programs on disk. Panasonic always uses GOOD tech writers and the intructions are quite good. On Screen prompts are also great - they know in advance what wrong stuff we will try!! Finally, the choice of input media is complete - something most units lack. Even a DV and USB option.

Very poor functionality - frustratingly slow to respond to commands, making simple operations difficult (occasionally even power up, power off!) System sometimes hangs. Clock is inaccurate -- needs resetting weekly. WON'T record digital TV channels to VHS -- only analog (analog or digital okay to DVD). Occasionally forgets to record scheduled programs. Fairly nice scheduler interface. Picture quality is good. I like the DVD RAM capabilities. Probably okay if you ready to tolerate its many flaws. Bottom line: Very unlike any other Panasonic product I've ever owned. A poorly executed design.

      Comments about Panasonic Black 1080p Up-Conversion DVD Recorder And VHS Combo Player:

      I spent over 6 months reviewing various devices that would play DVDs and VHS tapes and had the ability to record. I liked all the features of the DMR-EZ47 and finally purchased it. I have never been able to use the remote control meaning that with fresh batteries in the remote control the LED never has lit up. I was having to press the limited amount of controls on the device itself. I did do the firmware update and there were no changes in the remote control functionality still did not work. The DMR-EZ47is just being used as a VHS and DVD player that I have to get up to start and stop a movie.

      Panasonic Needs to Improve

      from Leimert Park

      Cons

      • requires clock resets
      • requires frequent resets

      Best Uses

        Comments about Panasonic Black 1080p Up-Conversion DVD Recorder And VHS Combo Player:

        Have a new and a refurb model They don't recognize RAM discs any longer and both units have to be reset several times a month, sometimes several times in a week. They both lose time and I have to reset the clock at least twice a month. I don't have cable. The recording quality is ok. Fortunately my remotes still work fine. As for Panasonic, I am amazed that they have done nothing to improve upon the 'brains' of this model so that these frequent failures become less frequent. For this reason alone, I will not buy another Panasonic product. I don't trust their engineering or quality control.

          Comments about Panasonic Black 1080p Up-Conversion DVD Recorder And VHS Combo Player:

          My DMR-EZ48V is the SECOND Panasonic dual VHS/DVD recorder I've purchased. The first (nearly identical DMR-35V) stopped recording DVDs and wouldn't recognize any format of DVD recordable discs and sometimes wouldn't answer the remote or even open the drive to retreave discs. We ended up buying a new model (EX48VS) that turned out to be just a newer model of what looks and acts like the older model - mainly because of price and the very few choices of VHS/DVD recorders of any brand. After ONLY 4-months (bought before Christmas) the new model stopped recording DVDs in nearly the same manner as the other. Won't recognize a new disc and once it can't find or format a disc, the disc functions cease to work at all. Just now starting the process to seek repair / replacement for the new one! Spend a little more and get something that'll last longer.

              Purchased product to copy VHS to DVD. This was easy to do. I am using HDMI output, but I do not believe the picture is HD like. Have not used all the features yet, but will be trying to copy fro TV directly to a DVD and tape at some point. Combo machines seem to be disappearing, this one is not bad for the price.

              Out of the box the back input would not work. If you come to the front the jack would input a signal. This was bad out of the box. The TV open air scan found the stations. Make sure you buy insurance on it. I am send it back for anuther one. Not many recorders on the market with tuners. It does have a nice menue built in for you recordings.

                    delivery faster than expected! I needed a dvd/vcr combo to replace one that would not work with my HDTV. This Panasonic unit fit my needs to a tee and I could not be happier. Set-up was easy and the play back of either VHS tape or DVD to my HDTV is amazing! The style and color works perfectly with my receiver and other electronic equipment in my home theater set up.

                      I should have bought three instead of one!
                      ABT made this sale easy and thorough. I really
                      liked the actual sales receipt they sent in lieu
                      of just a Pay Pal Receipt. So much easier to

                      locate my item from where it was purchased.
                      I simply attach the receipt
                      inside the product manual. Who throws away a manual?

                        I purchased mine in 2006, so it looks like the newer model and probably has been updated/upgraded. It works well, records well from tv. I have yet to transfer a vhs tape to dvd, which is why I bought it so I could get rid of the vcr tapes, but still plan on doing so. Up until about 6 weeks ago, it worked great but now the remote control doesn't work the machine. I got another one and it doesn't work either so I suspect it is the machine and not the remote. Have had several Panasonic items including a Lumix camera that I really really like.
