Will :

Please allow me a few moments to review your question again.

Will :

Have model number in mind?

Customer:

I simply cannot find a dvd vhs combo that has am fm radio. Not in any stores.

Customer:

I cannot find a DVD VHS combo with AM FM radio.Not in any store.When I see one on line that uses the word Tuner in the description the description talks about converter for dig. tv there is no mention of am fm reception so I don't know if the word Tuner automatically means radio.

Will :

I understand TUNER on a VHS DVD combo means TV Tuner ALL VIDEO TYPE COMPONENT They should be often do not define TV tuner or AM Tuner or FM tuner or AM/FM tuner,

Will :

Most DVD VHS combos are paired with some type of audio video receiver, using the audio video receiver [which have AM/FM tuners] as the "hub" of the system, routing all sources cable, your AM/FM antenna. any other type of source like an ipod, through the receiver,

Customer:

I have been looking for 5 months on line and in stores and I don't know if they exist.Not even refurberished.

Will :

Oh they exist do you need speakers with the unit? The reason they are sort of hard to find, is when you bring AM/FM TUNING into the same box with DVD/VHS now they have to be concerned with AM interference and filters, but I will show you a couple and you can tell me if this is the sort of combo you have in mind

that one is missing the vhs but let me find one with

Customer:

I had a toshiba home theater suround sound type the DVD VHS and tuner got flooded but I still have the speakers and woofer.I just want to get them hooked up again with the same or similar reciever.

Will :

The SC-HT800V offers high-quality home entertainment from a system that's as compact as it is easy to assemble. All you need is a television and a living room--the SC-HT800V provides the DVD and VHS playback, the surround-sound processing, and the multichannel audio delivery.


The system pumps 220 low-distortion watts of total power through a specially matched six-speaker system (left, center, right, left and right surround, and low-frequency subwoofer). And its versatility with media playback--from DVD to VHS videocassettes, MP3/WMA CDs, and JPEG image CDs--means you're never far from favorite movies, music, or digital photos. Topping it off, the system's DVD-Audio abilities offer super high-fidelity (192 kHz/24-bit) sound from specially formatted, music-oriented DVD-Audio discs.


DVD movies will look and sound great through the system's 54 MHz/10-bit video decoder, Panasonic's video Depth Enhancer, progressive-scan video output (for use with high-definition and HD-ready televisions), and Dolby Digital, Dolby Pro Logic, and DTS discrete 5.1-channel surround decoding and rendering. Progressive scanning, referred to as 480p for the number of horizontal lines that compose the video image, creates a picture using twice the scan lines of a conventional DVD picture, providing higher resolution and sharper images while eliminating nearly all motion artifacts. This feature can only be appreciated on high-definition and HD-ready TVs.


The VCR's four-head design ensures smooth slow-motion play (forward and reverse) and clear still-frame images, and with hi-fi sound the unit records and plays back stereo audio tracks. SAP audio receptions lets you listen to alternate-language tracks on select broadcast programming, and the unit boasts the ability to record in extra-long, 5x mode--just don't expect superior video quality at that setting. It also offers high-speed (600x) rewind--crucial when you're running late in returning videos!


The speaker set includes four wall-mountable bookshelf satellite speakers (front and rear left and right) powered by 25 watts each, a 30-watt center-channel speaker (critical for handling most of a movie's dialogue), and a powerful, 90-watt subwoofer optimized for unobtrusive placement. All speakers are magnetically shielded to protect your TV from distortion induced by the speakers' magnetic fields. A digital-synthesized FM/AM tuner lets you listen to your favorite radio stations.

Will :

Customer:

Will :
