does anyone know how cheap i can get a dvd recorder?

Im trying to drag the perants into the 21st century!

Looks like i can get an alba for about 60 quid (Alba RDVD1001), which will take a feed from a freeview box which is handy.

can anyone do any better??

many thanks,

charlie.

when dragging parents into new tech nology the cheapest option is rarely best why a DVD-R and not a PVR?

Thats no problem what you want is the best value for moeny, to advise need to know what sort of TV 28" Widescreen? CRT (big lump of a thing) 20" LCD small flat one etc.
Do you have sky? ntl? freeview? will it be used to watch rented or bought DVD's? how many scart sockets has your TV got? any spare? Sorry if this sems like alot of questions but its the sort of stuff need to gve good advice. ALso can you buy online or does it have to be from a shop?
