    Hi,

    I'm just about to buy a Samsung PS42S5H plasma and desperately want to find a DVD recorder with hard drive and HDMI but can't find any at a reasonable price...

    Want to spend about £400 max.

    Any ideas anyone?

    Cheers,

    Marco

    Assume from your name that you're in Spain.....
    Sony RDR-HX910 listed at €599 on Pixmania and Redcoon sites. Depending on the exchange rate you use, that's only a few £ above your budget.

    This LG new DVD/HDD model has a 250GB HDD and DVD+R DL recording, and it definitely has an HDMI interface.

    Can't tell you whether it is any good or not cos I haven't tried it, but it is available over here in Hong Kong. I've seen it in the shops and it does have HDMI if that's what you want. Not sure if it's available in Europe, although you can ask LG Europe.

    No mention of it in the Sony user guide for 710, 910, or 1010. Sorry & all that. There's always another year, another model, so wait. Like built in Freeview, they just don't want to give it to you all at once. :thumbsdow

    Sony don't think has HDMI, and LD doesn't seem to be available in Europe...

    If I give up the HDD, any DVD recorders with HDMI? The only one I've found is the Samsung DVD-R125 but a few people on here have said they don't rate the HDMI and can't tell the difference with a standard connection...

    Any other ideas?

    Looks like a few options are emerging, BUT my big question now is do they all upscale the DVDs?

    Because the LG RH7800h does have HDMI and HD but it DOES NOT upscale...

    Does the Sony 910, or the new Philips upscale???

    and looks to be about £550 online.

    I'm excited by this, I can chop in my Denon 1910 and Tosh XS32 and just have one machine.

    Question though : is it likely to allow RGB passthrough when off then default to HDMI when on?
