    My dad is after a new DVD or HDD recorder.
    His previous recorder Philips 880 was nothing but trouble.
    he is looking at the new Pioneer range. Now his needs are thus:

    Multi-region

    Pal/Ntsc recording (backups)

    ability to play discs recorded on above Philips machine

    Reliability

    Good picture quality

    I have been looking at the following machines for:

    Pioneer 220, 330 , 420.



    His last machine (880) was purchased via the web. He is a bit dubious about doing this again cos of all the 880 trouble.
    If you can recommend a good reliable web retailer I might be able to sway him.
    I have seen Richer Sounds prices and they are very cheap.
    but the multi-region Toshiba I bought from them just decided to play ONLY region 2 discs for some reason (out of warranty period).
    So I am a bit dubious about using them again.

    any advice would be appreciated.

    sorry if I am a bit of a thicko.
