Hi there, new to the forum and greetings to all you chaps & chapess's. I'm hunting for a DVD recording machine WITH Freeview AND a hard disk, but I draw a blank every time. The SONY RDRGXD500S is lovely looking thing, but no HD. Same with the Panasonic's (DMRES20D). Are there some devices in the pipeline? Or do I have to buy a HD unit (like Humax PVR-8000T) and then record to another DVD recorder unit? My situation is that I want a Freeview system where I can record to HD and select programs that I can export to DVD for playback on my PC at work (or store). I also want to be able to go on holiday and be able to record more than 6-8 hours (the maximum for DVD-RW on extended play???) so a hard drive seems necessary. I'm extremely new to the Freeview/DVD recorders so any info would be greatly appreciated. Thanks in advance.
