    Are you looking for a player, or a recorder (which will also play, of course). Your post says player, but this is the recorder forum?

    Thanks for replying.

    I know nothing.. :blush:

    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?

    can buy speakers seperately (any advice?)

    thanks!

    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.
    Look at the articles at www.homecinemachoice.com

    A quick answer, then I’ll defer to others more knowledgeable for details.

    A HDD/DVD recorder will do what you want to do – it will record from Sky, it will play DVDs and CDs.

    Take a look at Rasczak’s buying guide as a start.

    If you are looking for the best quality playback and music systems, generally you can get better quality with having a separate DVD and CD player (as well as a recorder).

    You could always start with the recorder, and later add a DVD or CD player if you wanted to improve that part.
