My mom asked me if theres anything on the market which enables her to easily record programs without the hassle of tapes/discs. Well, there is I guess -> DVD/HDD-recorder The current VCR my parents have, is a JVC with Showview. For most users, the blinking 0:00 still applies with VCRs, including my parents. (I've always be the one who setup the VCR with channels & clock) But how far has the market come since the DVD-recorders? I'm looking for a brand with clean simple intuitive graphic user interface, instead of dealing with a limited remote/display on a VCR. Any experiences with moms using DVD/HDD-recorders? Or opinions about this matter?
