After extensive research...well..... reading through this forum. I have finally come to the conclusion that I will NOT now be getting a DVD recorder with a HDD to complement the HDD already in my Sky+ decoder The reason being that any DVD I want to keep will be edited and authored on my PC. I read that editing is easier on a HDD, but we are still left only with basic menus. This does not really justify the 400 quid price difference between the Panny E60 and E100. Therefore I will write all my stuff to DVD-RAM, and edit and author on my PC and burn to DVD-r. As I already have Pioneer AO5 in my PC, all I really need is a new drive that can read DVD-RAM. Any suggestions and best places to buy from?
