I want to byu a HDD/DVD recorder.The most importants features for me are: 1.Good PQ, both recorded and playback(i use digital STB with RGB output). 2. A feature like JVC "Live Memory" or Philips "Live buffering" is very apreciated (but only if the source can be not only the tuner but an AV input). 3. Dedicated buttons on the remote for instant replay, slow when watching live pictures that is being buffered on the HDD. 4.Timer power back-up(so you not lose your timers set if the power goes out for a sec.) 5. Basic editting functions I read a lot of threads and reviews here and everywhere on the web.My budget is restricted so i picked Philips HDRW 720, Pioneer 433H, Toshiba xs32, JVC MH30. I read a lot of negative reviews for the Philips. But it is the only one with JVC that supports live buffering. The JVC is a little more expenesive.The Tosh lacks automatic start of the record when detecting signal from the STB. So the winner(for me) seems to be the Pioneer.But the absence of live buffering bothers me a lot. Any advice, opinions and comments will be highly appreciated.I see here a lot of members that know a lot about this machines(Rasczak for example) and i hope for their help in my decision.
