The JVC SR-MV45 is a really nice pro-series JVC machine that merges a pro SR-V10-like S-VHS VCR (with TBC) with a JVC DR-M100-like DVD recorder. Unlike other machines, this one is almost never reported as having a "LOADING" loop -- a generic error message usually caused by faulty/leaking capacitors in many electronics, including some early JVC model recorders
Given that it's only $400 right now, I HIGHLY suggest this unit: http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00...SIN=B000OH7RF0
I don't know if you're able to loop out of the VCR into an external TBC/proc amp/detailer/etc, and then back into the DVD recorders. I've not used one long enough to test for that functionality -- only test the DVD recorder and VCR independently. So I suggest it on the merits of a DVD recorder.
The DR-M10 was $399 new, and the DR-M100 was at least $299 new (and that was the lowest price, at Fry's at the time). So for the same price as classic models new, you can get this one WITH the pro VCR AND without known "loading" errors.
