DVR / DVD-R / HD RECORDER
WHAT YOU MAY NOT KNOW
The Digital Video Recorder may also be referred to as a PVR, DVR, Tivo, HD Recorder, or Hard Disc Recorder. The Digital Video Recorder (DVR) is a major improvement over VCR technology. The Digital Video Recorder will let you record digitally without losing sound or picture quality, things that used to be a problem with VHS technology. Digital Video Recorders will allow you to view one program while digitally recording another. Most of today's Digital Video Recorders are able to reproduce 5.1 Dolby Digital Surround Sound for a great home theater experience. Get the most out of yours by optimizing your hookup!
CABLES TYPICALLY NOT INCLUDED
HDMI Cable, Component Video Cable, S-Video Cable, Analog Audio Cable, Subwoofer Cable, Digital Coax, Digital Audio Cable, Fiber Optic Cable
- For the best digital sound and picture experience, use a Monster HDMI Cable. Not all Digital Video Recorders are able to record in high-definition. If yours can, and the rest of your components can accept it, HDMI and Component Video are the best quality video connections you can make.
- If your Digital Video Recorder doesn't offer HDMI or Component Video output, use an S-Video connection between the Digital Video Recorder and A/V receiver or TV.
- Many Digital Video Recorders also offer the ability to play back Dolby Digital® and DTS® surround soundtracks. To get the best quality sound from your PVR, use a HDMI, Fiber Optic or Digital Coax cable to deliver the digital audio signals from the Digital Video Recorder to the A/V receiver for processing.
- Most Digital Video Recorders, including TiVo® and Replay TV® models, use telephone lines (RJ-11) to connect to and download programming guides and services. These connections are best protected from surges with Monster PowerCenters™
- For the best picture and sound from your Digital Video Recorder, plus protection from surges and spikes, use a Monster PowerCenter™ with Clean Power®.
