Hi

Richer Sounds have a Yamada DVR8000 currently on offer at £149.00. Not sure what the unit's like, but it seems cheap enough.

I would have thought that if you can afford to buy something that can use prog scan you wouldn't be looking at a sub-£150 dvd recorder. IMHO of course!

..my point exactly! - that and to let people know that there is a potential bargian to be had, should they be interested in it and are able to accept any shortcomings it may have.

I'm not having a pop, but the one at scan for £20.00 (Now £30.00) more has progressive scan.

Just expressing a point.

and it's a good point too mate. If prog scan is worth the £20 or £30 more to you then the scan one is the one to go for.

Now if only I could type 'bargain' the way it's spelled...

Well, anyone heard of the "Scan Ellion" DVD recorder? (whose insides etc)

Did not mean to take a pop at anyone,& must admit am always a little wary of manufacturers I have never heard of!

Plus having "Progressive Scan" isn't the same as being able to produce a good picture... most cheap prog scan players won't look any better when switched from interlaced to progressive on today's plasmas and projectors...

Just trying to be a real cheapskate and save £20...

you might as well pay £50 more and get a proper branded machine. That might last over the warenntee period !

Many of the branded players are now made on the cheap in chinese factories. I still agree with your point though as the bigger players seem to do a much better job of putting the right features in a dvd recorder like proper RGB recording. Well at least Philips and Panasonic do anyway.
