Product Description


Enjoy your favorite DVD movies as well as the ability to record programming and home video footage directly to disc with the Toshiba D-RW2 progressive scan DVD player/recorder. It allows you to record TV programming while your out of the house with a timer function, but it also offers easy one-touch recording. It records onto DVD-R/RW discs, and it's also compatible with playing CD-R/RW and VCD discs as well MP3 and WMA digital audio files burned to disc. With the JPEG Viewer, you can easily display your favorite digital photos and create custom slideshows with a few simple clicks of the player's remote control. The interactive Digital Picture Zoom feature allows you to select an area of the video from a DVD and magnify it.

You get six compression modes for recording from 1 hour to 10 hours of video onto one disc. Other recording features include automatic title/chapter/thumbnail creation, time base correction, and auto finalization. Playback features include fast forward with audio (1.5x speed), fast scan, and slow motion.

The D-RW2 performs 3:2 pulldown detection and reversal, too--a handy feature for watching progressive-scan movie programs in their native 24-frame format. To adapt 24 frames-per-second movies to 30 fps video, frames in the original movie must be duplicated; 3:2 pulldown digitally corrects this duplication by removing the redundant information to display a frame-accurate picture.

You get vivid, realistic sound, thanks to Toshiba's 24-bit/192 kHz pulse code modulation (PCM) audio processor. PCM audio translates digital signals from your DVDs and CDs into warmer, natural sound. The DVD player offers Dolby Digital and DTS decoding, and you can connect to a multi-channel home theater surround sound system via the coaxial digital audio output. It also produces 3D virtual surround sound from two speakers. It features the following video and audio connections:

  • Composite A/V: 2 in (1 front), 1 out
  • S-Video: 2 in (1 front), 1 out
  • Component Video: 1 out
  • RF: 1 in
  • Digital audio: 1 coaxial

Tech Talk
Component video (also called Y/Pb/Pr) features a three-jack video input, which provides separate connections for luminance (Y), blue color difference (PB) and red color difference (PR). This results in increased bandwidth for color information, resulting in a more accurate picture with clearer color reproduction and less bleeding than you would get with S-Video or composite (RCA yellow video plug) connections. You will need a separate RCA left/right audio cable for sound.
