Magnavox MDR513H Qualities

What makes the Magnavox MDR513H stand out from the rest? The Magnavox DVD Recorder has a DVD +/-R/RW recording and even easy access to progressive scanning and HD programming with the built-in ATSC/NTSC tuner.

It can record up to 387 hours with all the built in 320GB HDD even on your lowest setting.

You may even add an external hard drive to provide extra Hard Drive space for more storage capacity.

The Magnavox tuner can pick up satellite direct tv channels and as well Digital and Analog cable.

It works so simple as the old VCR with simple recording and dubbing buttons. It’s basically a simple VCR that has plug and play buttons that’s real easy to use.

Imagine accessing TIVO without the satellite set up and the monthly fees. This is really a wonderful feature of the Magnavox MDR513H.


These are typically a few minor issues that I have encountered that pale in comparison to the wonders that the HD can do. One setback is it cannot burn double layer DVDs and has just a few USB drives for additional connection. There are a few flaws to this all round great equipment, but nevertheless still it got top reviews.

There’s no more fees to pay with the Magnavox player when you want to watch movies. You should not rent DVR anymore.
