    Eeek, was about to purchase a DMR-e55 and saw on the site I was about to buy from the JVC DRM10 for only £30 more. Seems to be -R and RAM but also DVD-RW.

    Can't seem to find anything much online. Anyone have any comments on it.

    This model does not do RGB in, but does have Ilink ofr camcorder use.
    I'm looking at the JVC too - seems good value for money.

    no RGB in - shame!

    Otherwise seemed good. Co-ax digital out was a big plus for me (with the DMR-E55 I'll have to get a TOSlink splitter). DVD-RW seemed like a plus too.

    I have DV camcorder but don't use it much. Even so iLink was another plus.

    But RGB in (for sky) is an absolute must.

    Just to check does the DMR-E55 definately have RGB in?

    Thanks

    Yes, It definitly does at least one RGB-in, I think both scarts are RGB IN/OUT though.
    The panny also has seperate S-Video inputs on the back which is a plus. The JVC has limited connectivity in this respect but does do satelite swithing via an IR wand thingie, if that is important.
    DVD-RW is imporant if you want to use your recordings on another DVD player. Tha panny does not do this.
    Take a look

    This point on the JVC not having RGB in, highlights a problem that I have.

    Had I not asked the learned people here I probably would've bought the thing.
    I looked on several etailers sites, also the mfrs site and also even read the manual on the thing. Yet had no idea that there was no RGB in and hence this machine would be useless to me.

    I juest wish that suppliers and maufactures were clearer in their info!

    Azzo - when you say about not being able to watch recordings on other dvd players do you mean if recorded in dvd ram on panasonic, pressumably if there was something you wanted to record and then watch on another dvd player/ or even re copy on pc you could record it straight onto a dvd-r disc in panny machine. Sorry if this is a stupid question but im not to up on these things but am looking to buy a dvd recorder
    Thanks in advance
