Strength:

TV GUIDE - THIS UNIT GETS ALL THE TV GUIDE INFO DIRECT FROM CABLE TWICE A DAY. LETS YOU SEARCH FOR SPECIFIC GENRE' OR SCAN A SPECIFIC CHANNELS PROGRAMMING FOR 24 HOURS AHEAD. ALSO YOU CAN SET IT TO RECORD ANYTHING THE TV GUIDE SHOWS.

Weakness:

NOT Y2K COMPLIANT. VCR MANUAL PROGRAMMING NO LONGER FUNCTIONAL AS THE DATE IS INCORRECT AND UNFIXABLE. ACCORDING TO PHILLIPS, TOUGH LUCK. NO FIX AVAILABLE. AS WIOTH ANYTHING ELECTRONIC BOUGHT FROM J.C.PENNEY'S, THERE IS NO SERVICE OR SUPPORT. AS A MATTER OF FACT, THERE IS NO ONE WHO EVEN REMEMBERS CARRYING THE LINE!

THE GREATEST VCR EVER MADE, PERIOD. IT HAS BUGS THAT CAN MAKE YOU A LITTLE CRAZY, LIKE IT WILL LOSE ALL YOUR SAVED PROGRAMMING FOR NO REASON, OR IT MAY ALTER THE PROGRAMMING TIME AS IT SEES FIT!!!!, BUT FOR ALL IT'S FLAWS, IT IS THE BEST VCR I HAVE EVER OWNED. IF THEY HAD ACTUALLY SAT DOWN AND FIXED THE LITTLE BUGS IT HAS I WOULD GLADLY PAY 500.00 FOR ANOTHER ONE. MAGNAVOX NEVER HAD MUCH OF A LONG VIEW OF THINGS AND HAS ALWAYS LEFT THEIR CUSTOMERS OUT ON A LIMB. THJEY HAVE THE GREATEST IDEAS AND THE WORST FOLLOW THROUGH.

Similar Products Used: NONE. IT IS A RARE UNIT. BASICALLY IT WILL GIVE YOU THE FULL CAPABILITIES OF TIVO FREE! THAT IS PROBABLY WHY YOU CAN'T FIND THE OPTION ANY MORE.
