Hi, I've been reading so much stuff recently about hard disk recorders, dvd recorders, bitrates etc that I'm beginning to confuse myself, so I'd appreciate it if someone could help me with my questions. I know the Sky+ box records progs in broadcast quality to it's HD by copying the bitstream, as does Pace's new digital freeview/HD box. Would I be correct in thinking that the only way to archive an exact bit for bit copy to dvd would be to use a firewire connection cable? If I were to connect a dvd recorder to the sky+/Pace box via scart, I wouldn't get an exact copy as it would be an analogue connection. Is that correct? Do either the Sky+ or Pace box have a firewire out socket? If not, would I be correct in thinking that the only current way to get exact copies of programmes archived to dvd would be to use a digital card in a PC, record the bitstream of the prog to the hard drive and then use a PC dvd writer to burn the files to disc? Also, for those who own dvd recorders, whats the quality of the analogue tuners in these like? Reviews in magazines tend to use recordings made from set top boxes to comment on picture quality, not many mention the quality of analogue recordings. How does the look of the analogue recording compare to the original broadcast? Cheers, Vic.
