When will I ever decide what I want? I started by wanting a low box count and thought the new wave of Media Centres (eg. the Elonex 32" TFT one) would be nice. Then I thought that Media Centre stuff isn't quite ready yet so I'll wait. What I really want is: 1) pause of live TV 2) play DVD's 3) Transfer DV camcorder footage to DVD (I've had troubles going via PC/Macs) 4) Something that shows the time on the front Not that fussed about twin tuner or freeview. I had been wondering about a PVR (eg Fusion FVRT100) but now have discovered that one can't record from external sources onto them. My latest plan is to get a DVD recorder that supports DVD-RAM - the Panasonic DMRE55 seems to fit the bill - and I like Panasonic as a brand - and is very competitively priced at around £200 for a multi-region hacked model. However, I am now rather tempted by the DMRE65 which has a DV-In socket which would presumably give better quality transfers from my camcorder than I'd get by going via a video/s-video connector. The best price I've seen is £249 (Richer Sounds), and I'm wondering whether the extra £50 is worth it. Does anyone here have any experience of this machine with respect to the quality difference of DV-in vs. (s-)Video input? Many thanks!
