    Hi Folks

    First post and a bit of a novice

    I'm about to invest in a HD Plasma (probably the TH37PV500). I am also investing in a DVD HDD Recorder but after my research realised that it would be a bit of a wasted investment if I wanted to utilise the HDMI interface on the TV.

    Is there a definitive list out there anywhere, that highlights which DVD recorders have a HDMI interface.

    Cheers

    I would look at the plasma forum on this site, many complaints about the PV500 on there!

    I only know of the latest Samsung DVD recorder (no HDD) and the Pioneer DV920 (which has a 250GB HD)

    I would suspect there will be more to come. Particularly with HD on the horizon.

    Regards.

    I've read elsewhere on AVforums that having a HDMI output is no guarantee of quality. I assumed the same as I think you are assuming. A few people have said that the Samsung model you mention has playback that doesn't quite hit the levels you would expect, even through HDMI.
