Hi - I need to invest in a DVD recorder. It's for the usual - recording tv programmes and watching DVD's. However, as we are a fairly numerous family, it often turns out that we have copied our DVD film via the PC. We have a RW that burns in DVD+R x8 and that obviously leads to some compatabilty issues with some of our options for playback. I have thought about getting a Panasonic E50 but realise it can't playback DVD+R. However, in that price range, the Phillips seem to have a hit and miss attitude to working. I am replacing a Phillips normal DVD player that has given up the ghost rather rapidly so would rather avoid them if I can. If I just have to write at x4 with -R on my RW, so be it - I'd rather spend a little more time in front of the PC than having the recorder unreliable. Don't want to spend too much and HDD not important. Any advice greatly received.
