Question

Can I use the VCR Commander with other recording devices than a VCR?

Answer

Maybe. The VCR Commander can control most devices meeting the following qualifications:

  1. Infrared remote control
  2. Recording can be started by a single button press on the remote
  3. Pressing RECORD again will not stop recording
  4. Recording can be stopped by a single press of the STOP button on the remote, even if RECORD was pressed repeatedly
  5. Does not turn off or go to sleep automatically

To work with our video receivers, the recording device must also have a composite video input (yellow RCA cable.) If you come across some non-VCR recording device meeting these qualifications, please let us know.
