Hi I'm new to the stand alone DVD recorders, but have owned a PC DVD burner for 6 months now. My query is, I want to compile episodes of kids pgms for the little one, without all the adverts etc. at each end. I want to use the timer function, so realise I will have to go back & edit the original disc to "clean up". Is this possible on the standalone m/c's , or is it best to get one that writes DVD-RW & do the editing on the PC & re-write DVD ? I'm keen to keep the price as low as possible, so H/Ds are out. I get the feeling I'm answering this myself, but just wanted to check there was no new technology I've missed out there Also can't see any reviews on the Musteks I see on EBAY @ approx £250...anybody any links ? Thanks in advance Dave.
