Due to the nature of the cross compatible connectors (HDMI, Composite, Component, Optical), almost all devices will work with the Samsung units, regardless of manufacturer. There are no special converters or cables (besides the ones needed to connect between the devices) required.
Since the DVD-VR375 offers audio/video inputs, you should be able to just connect your Tivo up to the DVD-VR375.

Thanks for posting a question on BestBuy.com. From the info I have, a 8X speed DVD+RW or greater disc can be played, but maximum recording speed on the DVD-VR375's DVD recorder is 4x.

Thanks for the question. There are no converter boxes needed to connect the DVD-VR375 to your home entertainment system. This unit offers a on device tuner that handles your over the air TV programing. If you would like to access premium content through the DVD-VR375, you will need a set top box connected to it since premium content is controlled through your service provider and is usually not sent over the air.

Although the DVD-VR375 will allow for mp3 file playback from a CD-R/RW, the unit can not play back mp3 files from a DVD-R/RW.

If your TV offers additional connections such as composite (yellow) or component (RGB), or even HDMI (DVD output only), you should be able to connect the DVD-VR375 to it. the unit also comes with coax input/outputs so you can pass your signal from your converter box to your TV. However, the coax connection does not pass the output signal of the DVD Recorder & VCR. To watch output signal of the DVD Recorder & VCR, you must connect the audio/video as stated above.

Question

tuner

You alternately say it has a tuner, then it has no tuner. If it has a tuner, key question, is it a digital tuner?

I sincerely apologize for the confusion.

The 375A has a standard analog tuner. The 375 has no tuner.

If your camcorder offers a DV jack, the DVD-VR375 will be able to record from and control the camcorder.
Some camcorders may not work with your DVD Recorder & VCR even if they have a DV output jack.
