I have 1 but it is 7 pin svideo not the 4 pin the recorder has present. So far found 1 only at $160US
Any 1 know where to source a cheaper version?

Thanks for the suggestions the composite quality sucks svideo recording from the older unit was definately better.

It sucks though my older panasonic dvr especially cartoons which my wife makes into dvds for showing when we mind our grandkids. I upgraded my composite cables and now run composite to RCB connector (scart) seems to be half way acceptable. Component to 4 pin svideo just does not work (green tinge). A component/svideo convertor box might but not worth the $60+ they are asking (some $119).
Your blueray might be upscaling the signal. Thanks for your comments

That surprised me never thought they would do that just because I asked for a better unit to copy to a dvr.
As a final addendum I looked at 8 DVRs in Myers and only 3 had any inputs and that only composite. 5 had only outputs and mostly hdmi/composite. So in another year inputs will dry up .

Yes they couriered it to me and paid for return 851 unit via post office. This also done to a poster in whirlpool forum recently.
They really were quite good about it so good luck.
I got foxtel installed with IQ2 4 weeks ago and a week after I realised the box they gave me was compromised as far as extracting HD from the component outputs to a computer. Only got foxtel to get netball games off it like I did with the free to air games. You can't get HD off the 851 box but you can off the 850 box. So I sent them an email last week if I could get an 850 to replace the 851 and to my surprise they said i'd get one in the mail within 3-5 days. Got it yesterday and it's great, in advanced settings you can choose video output settings which you can't in the other box. They even pay postage to send back the other box. Happy days

I agree the 850 is more recording friendly enjoy.

Some do you can ask for a 1tb drive usually cost more. If you did not pay more maybe they were short of noremal 851s.

That was what i was saying. Oh you seeing any issues copying to a DVR? See
Mine working very well so unsure what their issue is. Sounds like macrovision protection
