I have a JVC HM-DH40000U with the original box and the remote for sale. (Somewhere along the line I lost the manual, but it's on JVC's website.) I'm not the original owner, but this unit plays VHS and S-VHS tapes just fine. As NJRoadFan and I discussed in another thread, this model actually has a 6MB buffer for its DigiPure circuit.
I never used this VCR for D-VHS recording or playback, and I had gotten it off of Craigslist and the person never commented on this feature either. Before posting, though, I tried recording from my cable box to a D-VHS tape via firewire connection. I can't get it to record and play back HD video smoothly. The video is choppy and pixelated with no audio. So, if you need a DVHS deck, look elsewhere unless you know how to fix this. Cleaning the video heads with alcohol and chamois cloth didn't help.
If you just need a VCR to do VHS or S-VHS capturing, this is a great unit!
I'm asking $220 (what I paid) or I'll consider offers. I qualify for discounted UPS rates because of shipping lots of items for eBay
, so I can offer fairly cheap shipping. If you'd like a shipping quote just send me your ZIP code.
