The JVC Non-Blu-Ray Recorder
 
The JVC is the same as the Tascam unit so this review can apply to it also. This is listed as a Blu-ray recorder / DVD / HDD recorder. It works wonderfully for DVD & HDD. Blu-ray recording on this recorder is like the Ten Commandments x 100. Thou Shall Not...Thou Shall Not....Thou Shall Not & finally You Can't. First choose your discs wisely as most will not work in this unit. You cannot record standard def to a blu-ray and have it play back in another blu-ray player. There are no compone...

Not what I was expecting
 
All media MUST go to the hard drive before being burned to DVD or Blu-Ray. The menu system is difficult to navigate.

Great Machine
 
I use the Product to transfer my images from my new HD camcorder to a Blu-Ray Disc. Works like a charm, you can edit and take out what you do not want.Image quality is exceptional, even with a copy of a DVD.You can use this product with an SD card, and also transfer images through S-VIDEO or the normal RCA plugs. I-Link and USB plug.The machine is limited to the only use of DVD-R for transfer or Copy Video.

Yes You Can Record SD to Blu-ray
 
You can record SD video to Blu-ray discs, but not directly.Notes: If the origional video is in 4:3 aspect ratio, such as VHS, then first go to "Set Up" and "Record", and change "High-Speed Dubbing" to 16:9. This will maintain the origional aspect with black on the left and right.1. Record SD video (from Line 1, DV input, or DVD disc) to the SR-HD1250's hard drive.2. Place a BD-RE disc into the SR-HD1250. Using the "Dubbing" mode, record the hard drive file to the BD-RE in XP, or in high speed.3....

Meets my business needs
 
I recently bought the SR-HD1250US Blu-ray recorder, and have been very pleased with its performance. I did at first have some difficulty burning a Blu-ray from imported HDV video from my camcorder. The mode change, that was required for a BD-MV format, was inactive. I discovered the video output from the firewire port on the camcorder was in DV instead of HDV. This down-converted the video to standard definition. A simple menu change on my Canon HV40 changed the output to HD. Re-capturing ...

Blu-Ray Record, Big Problem
 
I first reviewed this machine as a great unit for HD recording. It made great Blu-Rays. Since then the hard drive to Blu-ray does not want to work. At first every once in awhile it would not record to a Blu-Ray disc. Now it won't do it at all. Hard drive to dvd's are fine, but not Blu-Ray. JVC tells me I have to send the unit to California to be fixed. Great!!!!!!

not sure about this product
 
I bought a new Sony NX5U and then decided to buy the JVC 1250 so I wouldn't have to edit with a computer. This does not do great edits. A JVC employee spent 5 hrs at my house yesterday teaching me how to use this. He says it does not do "seamless" (clean) edits because of the way this particular Sony cam records AVCHD. He says maybe I'd get clean edits with an upgraded camera. I am not happy. I can't even delete any scenes without video and/or audio noise (audio dropout-mute) at the edit points....

JVC Produces Again
 
We bought 2 units for the HDD function to use as a backup to On The Fly DVD recording. Events are from 2 hours to 2 days, so no worry if a program segment runs longer than the anticepated DVD speed. And we can burn the entire event onto 1 bluray disc for archival storage. Will purchase more to phase out our old JVC VHS/DVD recorders.We have found JVC to be developing the right combination features & quality that keeps us coming back for more products.

Works as advertised - Could be better
 
We use this product as part of our television ministry at church to make library copies of our full church service. I like the fact that it came with BNC connectors, and it has a clean look and feel. Software and remote are straightforward, and, with some exceptions, simple to use.Other than the price and BNC connections on the back of the unit, I cannot figure out what is "high-performance" or "professional" about this product. It works well, but the programming could be better. I cannot find a...

I use the hdd to record a weekly live program. It's smooth simple to use and high quality. However the menus are difficult & cumbersome to navigate.
