Hi, I currently have a freeview box connected to a 42'' plasma. I have no capacity to record programs. I'm interested in the possibilities of a PVR, but I also need a new PC / laptop so thought I could perhaps combine the two. I would like to be able to record programs to the laptop's hard disc and then either burn them to DVD and watch them on the TV or connect the laptop to the TV and play the recording directly that way. What are the issues I need to consider here? Will the picture be good when I plug the laptop into the plasma? What will the format of recorded DVDs be? How do I know if I will be able to play them on my current dvd player? Should I consider a Media Centre PC with a Media Centre extender for the TV? Any advice appreciated. Julian.
