I have recently been looking at DVD recorders from the USA on ebay. A fantastic condition DMR-HS2 recently went for £228!! Even taking into account a shipping charge of £38 this is an outstanding bargain. The only reason I didn't buy it was because I was not sure if the US model would record and playback PAL signals from my Sky+ box. I realise the NTSC TV tuner may not be of any use, but I am not bothered as I would just be using it for archiving my sky+ recordings. Any advice on this or any other US recorders that work with PAL would be appreciated.
