Pioneer DVR-320-S DVD Recorder
Packaging & Interior Look
The retail package that arrived in our labs contained the unit, a remote control with two AAA batteries, and an AV cable.
On the unit's front panel, from left to right one can see the power button,
along with two other buttons - "DISC HISTORY" and "DISC NAVIGATION" - that
control DVD playback and recording. Right below these there is a small panel
that when opened, reveals three AV RCA connectors. Continuing towards the right
we can see the eject button, and several more buttons that control DVD
playback and recording. Finally, we can see an IEEE1394 connector, that can
be used for
connecting a DV camcorder and transferring videos to the DVR-320.

On the back there are the DVR-320's audio/video connectors.We can find
a multitude of connections there. Starting from left to right we can see: VHF/UHF
in/out (for the TV signal), Audio L/R out, Composite & S-Video Out, 1 Scart
output for connecting TV, 1 Scart input, Optical Digital output.
The package also includes a remote control. While a bit large in size, it
offers complete control over the DVR-320, and then some more. Properly
programmed by following the instructions found in the manual, this remote control
control not only the DVR-320, but your TV as well. Speaking of
the manual, the package comes with a 70 page manual that explains
detail and with simplicity all the DVR-320's operations.
