    Lots of talk about them, but has anyone bought one? I'd like to at least know they work before I take the plunge. ;)

    Check out http://www.mpcclub.com/modules.php?name=Forums&file=viewforum&f=38 for oddles of info. There are lots of known problems that may put you off.

    I am happy with the DVD/HD recorder elements but a bit disappointed with the media player.

    I have a modded Xbox with Xbox Media Centre installed and hoped that when my DVD/VCR combi died that I could replace both boxes with the DP-558 but I still use the Xbox.

    Regards,

    Thanks, I'd seen that link and it has meant I've scratched the idea of getting one. I don't mind the firmware issues so much, as long as they get fixed eventually, but the killer for me was finding out that the unit can't play DVDs whilst recording - how dumb is that!!
