I'm going to be getting the Pio 505XDE and therefore probably Sky's HD service at some point. When the new format DVDs (Blu-ray or whatever) come out and that market is stable I'll probably get a new DVD player that's compatible for that. So I want something that I will probably only have for a couple of years (starting from scratch). Seeing as I'm getting the 505XDE I was thinking I might get a DVD player/recorder with HDMI out for the benefit that gives. So forget things like Pioneer's 920 as that's too expensive for a couple of years. Ideally I would like a hard disk to record onto (even if it's smallish) until I get the Sky HD as I don't have Sky+ and probably won't bother getting it until HD is out fully. So I'm a bit torn between getting a HDMI out dedicated player only or something that doesn't have HDMI out but does have a hard disk. I'm assuming that there isn't a cheapish solution that does both out now?! (I'm looking at £500 max. Someone mentioned a Samsung (don't know model) and possibly Denon (2910, 3910?) as possibilities. Any thoughts?
