    Hi All,

    Can anyone suggest the HDD/DVD recorder that best interacts with the NTL cable TV system (East Sussex, black PACE box)?

    Looking to upgrade as I've really had enough of the VCR and want something that's going to work well with the cable TV.

    I understand I may have to battle NTL customer service to get a box upgrade?

    All advice gratefully accepted!

    Cheers

    Kelvin

    If you are in a Bromley area (black remote), the Tosh XS32 works very well, but requires a Red-Eye translator to allow auto channel selection. The Philips 725 and JVC DR-MH20S DVD/HDR are also confirmed as working via Red-Eye

    If you bought the Red-Eye a while ago you may need a firmware upgrade to support the XS32 - see the info at the bootom of the Red-Eye FAQ page for more info on firmware versions.
