i want to pay up to a grand (But rather keep it around 600 quid level) for a decent dvd recorder/player. mostly for play back of dvds (Film)..will i be able to get one thats plays music dvds as well? can i record films from sky on a recorder?
You need to decide whether to buy a DVD player or DVD Recorder.
If you don't intend to record anything then just have a player.
You need to do a fair bit of research, first.
