Let's break it down for you:
DVD Recorders Defined
DVD recorders are quite similar to their VHS predecessors. You can program the DVD recorder to record a film or television show at a specific time. You can also hook up your own video camcorder and transfer your home videos to the DVD recorder and many DVD recorders allow you to watch one program while recording another. All of the information is transferred directly to a hard disc media like a DVD-R. No information is stored on a hard drive for later viewing.
