By turning on the player, we don't see any kind of welcome screen, but instead
the DVR-720H-s waits for a command from the remote control. By pressing the "HOME
on the remote, we are presented with the main menu of the DVR-720H-s, from where
we can accomplish many different tasks like configuring the unit, setting up
the recording timer, use the Photoviewer to view photos stored on a CD/DVD,
to the video and audio quality etc. For those that have already read our
DVR-320-s review, the whole menu layout will seem very familiar.
Pioneer seems to follow a unified approach to designing the user interfaces for
their DVD players/recorders, and they have our blessing for that. So there is
no need to
refamiliarize ourselves again and again with new menus and different ways of
the same things.
Let's see the Initial Setup menu in detail.
The Basic menu
We continue with the Tuner menu.
