I have a Panasonic HD camcorder (SD60). I have been keeping the created files on cards until I could buy something to replace my (non HD) Sony DVD recorder. I am probably going to buy the DMR BWT 720. My TV is only HD ready but I do not want to loose what the camera has - one day the TV will be upgraded. My question (as a non technical person - really!) is should I be doing something else? Instead or next. We have a laptop that is our photo album (also on an external hard drive connected to our desk top). And all our originally video recordings and more recent digital recordings are on DVDs (via the Sony). What I am thinking of is - is there a easy/simple way that I can access all to show on the TV. Clearly I can connect the laptop to the TV for the photos and the DVDs can go in the recorder or the 5.1 system. It is just that there are now so many bits of kit! Any comments would be great.
