Coby's affordable DVD-R1100 makes component DVD recording easier than ever. The player/recorder offers one-button recording and a host of connections, including composite- and S-video inputs, an RF antenna/VCR input, and front-panel jacks for easy hookups with your camcorder, VCR, or other audio/video component. The front connections even include a DV input for direct digital hookup with a camcorder or computer feed. The unit's built-in tuner lets you record right off the air for convenient, time-shifted viewing of your favorite TV programs.

The DVD-R1100 records on DVD+R (write-once) and DVD+RW (rewritable) media. DVD+RW discs require no finalizing--you can record, eject, and play them with minimal fuss, thanks to "background formatting." This feature, which lowers total burning time, is an advantage over the "dash" formats.

As a player, the DVD-R1100 offers compatibility with NTSC or PAL sources (with appropriate media and monitoring), DVD-R and DVD-RW discs, MP3 CD playback for your homemade music mixes (be aware, though: there's no ID3 tag recognition for artist and title information display), and even progressive-scan component-video outputs for a seamless, flicker-free image on high-definition and HD-ready TVs.

Progressive scanning, referred to as 480p for the number of horizontal lines that compose the video image, creates a picture using twice the scan lines of a conventional DVD picture, giving you higher resolution and sharper images while eliminating nearly all motion artifacts.

A set of left/right analog-audio outputs channel audio to Dolby Pro Logic receivers and stereo televisions. Dolby Digital 5.1-channel surround-sound signals can be routed through the player's digital-audio outputs (1 each of RCA coaxial and Toslink optical) for direct connection to a full-featured audio/video receiver.

An onscreen display simplifies player/recorder setup and operation, and the unit comes with a full-function remote control.
