Hi everyone, As I'm new to the board I was wondering if anyone could give me any info about which DVD Recorder will give to me the best playback picture (most SHARPEST) when I record off the T.V. (I have Telewest cable). I have a Philips DVDR 980 (the old one, as I've been told) and although the playback picture is very reasonable I do feel I could get a better picture. It's really a straight race I think, between a Philips 890 (or 880) or a Panasonic 50/30?. (I don't know any more recordable machines) I would appreciate it if anyone could point me in the right direction on this subject. Many thanks to you all.
