I'm selling a BARELY USED AND VERY HARD TO FIND JVC digital VHS recorder with an integrated HDTV receiver in excellent working condition. JVC's HM-DT100U performs two functions in one, receiving lifelike high-definition video signals on an HD-compatible TV and then recording up to four hours of the signals for crisp, rich playback. The unit connects to HD-ready TVs and hi-res projection systems through its High Definition Multimedia Interface (HDMI), which eliminates picture degradation by transferring information by digital means exclusively (no digital-to-analog or analog-to-digital conversion). For systems without HDMI inputs, the recorder connects via its iLink (ideal for digital camcorders), component-video, S-video, or composite outputs, which combine to give viewers a multitude of audio and video options. The device also features a 5.1-channel Dolby Digital and DTS audio output that broadcasts high-quality audio soundtracks in multichannel surround sound.
Fortunately for users who still enjoy standard digital and analog programming, the HM-DT100U records those signals as well, including converting analog signals to digital recordings via the CODEC processor. Viewers with large videotape collections can ditch their old VCRs, as the unit is compatible with the traditional VHS format, while also playing far more modern D-Theater content. Recording lengths depend on the cassette type and content source, with top-end D-VHS cassettes offering up to four hours of HD recording and up to 35 hours of analog recording. Other compatible cassettes include S-VHS (doesn't record HD content), S-VHS ET, and Hi-Fi VHS (for multichannel analog sources). The system's multibrand remote control (with glowing keys) controls the VCR, TV, and cable box.
With the JVC HM-DT100U D-VHS VCR with Built-in ATSC Tuner and HDMI Output, you can record your favorite digital broadcasts in any format. Connect to HDTV or a high resolution projector with the HDMI cable and record any program you wish without losing any quality. The DT100U lets you fully experience prerecorded D-Theater movies and at the same time you can continue to view your analog video library. You can watch the videos you've collected over the years and still experience the new technology of high-definition TV, all in the same unit.

The JVC HM-DT100U DVHS VCR comes with the original box, instruction manual , remote & original accessories. The first picture shows the actual image recorded from its own HDTV Tuner. I used my compact digital camera to take that photo of my HDTV monitor showing the DT-100U playback video. It's indistinguishable from the original live broadcast. This is the most complete JVC HDTV VCR you can buy. All you need is a good quality TV antenna.
