Sylvania DVC-865F Dual Deck DVD/VCR Player The Sylvania DVC865F Progressive Scan DVD/VCR Dual Deck provides the perfect hybrid solution for the serious movie enthusiast. With both a high-end DVD and equally feature-rich VCR, this unit will free space in your component stack and still let you enjoy your entire film library, regardless of format. The player reads DVD Video discs, DVD -R/RW discs, Audio CDs, CD-RWs, CD-Rs and also plays MP3 files.

The DVD player includes progressives scan. Progressive scanning, referred to as 480p for the number of horizontal lines that compose the video image, creates a picture using twice the scan lines of a conventional DVD picture, giving you higher resolution and sharper images while eliminating nearly all motion artifacts. The DVD player also includes a 3:2 pulldown feature that improves the image quality of film transfers. DVD mastering introduces a common distortion when adjusting 24 frames-per-second movies to 30 fps video; 3:2 pulldown digitally corrects this distortion, removing the redundant information to display a film-frame-accurate picture.

VCR features include a 4 head HiFi MTS-SAP driver for superior picture and audio quality. The 181 channel auto set PLL MTS_SAP frequency synthesized tuner, when combined with the 1-year/8-event programmable timer, will record your favorite programs, something your stand-alone DVD player won't do. The unit also makes finding your favorite scene a snap. Use either the index and time search, or the two-step picture search to quickly locate the frame you want.

A host of output choices mean you can use whichever connection is most convenient or highest-quality. There's an RF (F-connector) in and out, for those really old TVs, and of course, standard composite A/V (RCA) jacks in both the front and rear for practically every other device. S-Video and component video output connect higher-end TVs, and digital audio output lets you send audio to most any home theater system.

With a great feature set for both players, a 44-key remote control and stylish exterior, this deck lets you play the latest DVDs and still enjoy those old-school tapes you carefully collected. Whether you're looking to upgrade your system to include a DVD player, or you need to replace a worn-out VCR, this combination unit makes perfect sense--and it only takes the space of one component.
