    I've posted this in another forum but had zilch back thought I'd try this one

    My LG - DRT389H Digital TV DVD Recorder with USB 2.0 Interface has broken and I need to get a replacement it plays R1 discs so will need one that can do that job too

    My question is this can I buy a Blu Ray player that has DVD/RW capabilties do such things exist?

    Or should I look at buying seperate units?

    The critical point here is whether you mean strictly 'player'.

    All Bluray drives are backwards compatible with DVD.... so, all Bluray players will also play DVD's.

    Also - all units that have Bluray recordable drives can also record DVD's

    but if you actually do mean you are looking for something that will play Blurays but record DVD's, I think you are out of luck.

    There are hybrids available that have a Bluray drive that will play Blurays and DVD's... but record off air to a hard disc ... if that may be of any use.

    If you are looking for proper Bluray/ DVD recorders have a look at this sticky thread which explains about their general use.
