Today was the day I went in to do the deal but just prior to putting my money down I asked the saleman to make sure I can use my Video recorder and DVD recorder to record TV programs from the TV. He assured me, like all the other salesmen from other stores that the TV could certainly do just that. It's a TV and all TV's let you record TV programes.
That's why we have DVD recorders they told me. Anyway, this salesman said he would make absolutely certain for my peace of mind. Well, low and behold he was shocked to find out they CANNOT RECORD. They have no video out. He rang the Samsung suppliers here in New Zealand and was told by them that The Samsung Series 6 TV's with inbuild Freeview do not allow you to record anything to a VCR or DVD recorder.
Does anyone know why this is? And, are there any of these fantastic TV's available anywhere else in the world that do allow one to record TV programs. I would really appreciate any other comment on this especially from those in the industry or a Samsung technician to explain why you can't record from them. It seems really odd to have such a high end TV not able to be recorded from. And, to think the manufacturer actually makes DVD recorders. Why when their high end TV's won't allow you to record?
