    Hi all,

    I have had a trawl through the forums but have not seen an answer to this, so perhaps someone can help me.

    My Dad is looking for a DVD/HD recorder and had seen the Toshiba RD-XS24 that he liked.

    Looking at the spec on this, I can't see any way for this to control a cable, satelite or freeview box. Is this true? If so, what other DVD/HD recorders can do this?

    Thanks,

    b.

    OK - thanks for that - I have had a look at the link and see what you mean. I downloaded the manual for the XS24 and the connections diagram in the manual does not have an IR sender or G-Link socket.

    I guess I'll have to trawl through them one by one.
