    Got an e-mail from Philips after enquiring about a model I had seen in the U.S.
    Here is the link they sent me ,the 5.1 dual layer recording makes this sound very tasty. Sorry I know the page is in German but I hope you get the ideaDVDR740 :thumbsup:

    The Toshiba RDXS34 looks the best thing on the horizon so far: Freeview, 7 day EPG, HDMI, 250GB HDD plus all the features of the current RDXS32. Should be a fantastic bit of kit.

    Personally I am not convinced by any urgent need for 5.1 recording. Only a few Sky Movie channels use it - and you can get these on commercial DVD with significantly better picture and sound than via Sky.

    I can't see 5.1 recording making a big impact at the moment either as I would imagine that it would take up more space per minute of recording, so with the limited capacity of single sided DVDs could mean even less recording onto 1 DVD
    .

    Are you sure about the Dual Layer recording ? I don't see any mention of this.

    By the way, when can we expect Dual Layer standalone recorders? Or isn't it feasible to burn let's say a TV program on a dual layer DVD on the fly?

    But if your recording on a dual layer disc then this won't be a problem.

    Very true that dual layer will mean you can get more on a disc, but I can't see many recorders coming out with this as the other formats will be out in a years time anyway offering much bigger capacity.

    I would personally prefer to see some dvd/hdd recorders with ethernet pc link, thats really why I got the LG DR4810 due mainly to the lack of anything that really covered all my needs, I thought I might as well save a bit of cash and wait for some more useful devices to appear.
    I imagine the main problem would be copyright issues.
