quick check of the spec sheet on this DVD recorder throws up some instant problems. There is no component video output or digital video input both things we like to see on a recorder. Far more important, however, is the lack of an RGB Scart input. We dont quite know why companies insist on leaving out what would appear to be an essential input option, but many of them keep on doing it. The result is that this Thomson deck is thrown into our uncompromising grouptest arena with one hand metaphorically tied behind its back.
pure S-video input and output sockets, composite support and an optical digital audio out. There is no electrical digital option. At the front, behind a discreet panel, lie in S-video, composite video and stereo audio camcorder inputs.
Thomson has stuck its flag in the DVD+R/+RW camp. This is increasingly looking like the wrong option, because editing facilities are so severely limited. With DVD-RAM, and DVD-RW discs in VR mode, you can get up to all sorts of antics that the plus camp can only dream of. On +R discs you can give the disc a title, choose a thumbnail image to represent each recording and thats it, really. DVD+RW discs manage a bit more, letting you insert and delete chapters, divide and erase a title. Erasing a title frees up the space on a +RW disc, but the space remains locked in place on the disc, if you see what we mean. Delete three scattered, five-minute titles from a DVD+RW disc and you have three scattered five-minute blank sections, not an accumulated 15-minute block. You also have the option of hiding chapters (which lets you designate an advert break to be skipped over but does not actually erase it). There are six recording modes available: Best, High, Good, Normal, Basic and Low. These fit 1, 2, 3, 4, 6 and 8hrs, respectively, onto a single blank DVD. The SmartRecord
Were rather used to DVD recorders being imposing. In fact, almost every one we look at has a width of 430mm, or thereabouts, so this new offering from Thomson instantly stands out by being considerably smaller. At just 360mm in width it has a much diddier footprint and it is also unusual in having the disc-loading tray mounted to one side, rather than centrally. The smoothed corners contribute to the distinctive look, but it will be a matter of taste whether you like it or not. The remote continues the slightly eccentric design, being very small and neat, with far fewer fiddly buttons to boggle you. These are merely cosmetic matters, of course. What is really important is the connectivity and features count. We have already mentioned the rather disappointing omissions as far as connections go. You do get an RGB Scart output, and the input Scart can be set for either S-video or composite. There are also
function automatically selects the best option depending on the length of programme to be recorded and the space available. Most of the other functions are standard (zoom, A-B repeat play, slow motion etc.) but there are a few notable inclusions. A disc library system retains information on up to 200 titles, including the name of the disc they are on and when they were recorded, making it far easier to keep track of a growing collection. Scene Again gives an instant replay, while Advance skips forward 30 seconds (useful for dodging commercials, perhaps?). Finally, SRS TruSurround is an option for people not using a multi-channel sound

system and creates a wider soundstage from a TVs stereo speakers.
Operation is made awkward by the remote control, which is not the most responsive weve seen. It is easy to inadvertently select a different operating mode and be left pointing and pressing frantically, trying to make a DVD play with no success. It is also cumbersome to change the recording mode. You have to go into the onscreen display (which is very nicely laid out, by the way), when a button on the remote would be far easier. Having mastered this, recorded images are fairly good, although the absence of an RGB Scart means it cannot approach the highest quality. If you have a set-top box with an S-video output, you will still be able to enjoy high-quality images (although not the highest), but otherwise

you are stuck with composite video, which is little short of a joke for a DVD recorder. Image quality is retained at the highest setting and is still very good in the 2hr mode. Things start to deteriorate noticeably on the 3hr mode and are quite unpleasant by the time you hit the normal 4hr setting. The basic and low settings live up their names. Interestingly, the loopthrough picture remains at normal broadcast quality, whatever recording mode you have accessed, but switches to preview record quality when you start a recording. This is helpful in warning you what sort of image you will get on your recordings. Pre-recorded DVD playback is better, thanks in large part to the RGB Scart output. Compared to recordings, there is far more crispness to the image and colours seem much more involving. Movie soundtracks are very good through this deck, at least when connected to a good speaker and amplifier system.

Our patience is at an end with DVD recorders that do not offer an RGB input
This recorder hasnt really been given a chance by its creators. The omission of an RGB input is too much to overcome, given the fierce competition between DVD recorders. The component video and DV omissions can be overlooked to some extent, and there are enough good things about this deck to make you wish a couple of loose ends had been tidied up. Still, this market is a case of survival of the fittest, and in this demanding environment the DTH8040 cannot compete
