    Hi, this has probably been asked many times but cant seem to find anything when I search.
    Which, if any, DVD recorders are able to record the full 5.1 mix from Sky+ (for example) rather than just the 2.0/surround version.
    Thanks in advance.

    The one you need is the new Philips DVDR7200 which has an optical input. It also has a Freeview tuner and HDMI out.

    Again, searching for a DVD recorder that can record the direct Dolby digital stream from say Sky+ or Laserdisc.

    There isn't a "new Philips DVDR7200", except in the manufacturer' imagination. Some of us have given up waiting for hard evidence of the ~2-year Philips boast of an imminent 5.1 recorder. Strangely enough, the launch is always cancelled at a late stage and the potential buyers asked to defer expectation until a nebulous future date.

    @djsky: BTW, "Dolby digital stream" could be 2-channel stereo...

    No-one except Philips knows whether any of this applies to the UK.

    We'll just have to wait and see like before.
