DVD Recorder for Sky+ Backup and Xvid playback


Standard Member
Any suggestions which DVD recorder would be best for me? Budget is around £200.

I'd really love Xvid playback - Veronica Mars is reason enough - but the most common use for it will be to move some things onto DVD from the Sky+ box to clear it out. So RGB input and output is the most important thing. My TV supports prog-scan so that'd be nice. And I'd like it to be multi-region for playback too...so not much I want really. :D

While I'm here, am I right in thinking that I'll just have to press play on Sky+ and set the DVD recorder going at the same time to record from the appropriate input? Anyway of making it automatically stop? Or do I just have to be poised if I'm being careful with space?

Any advice appreciated. Samsung R125 and the Ellion 530S seem to be the main options from what I've managed to find. I think I'm leaning towards the latter if no-one has any better suggestions.

EDIT: How did I guess I wouldn't get a response? Doesn't matter, ordered the Ellion.
