    Now that I've got SKY+ 80gb I'm thinking of getting rid of my new TOSH RXS34 (asmy wife and kids find it too confusing) and going for a non hard disk recorder but with VCR as well.

    Can anyone suggest a good one!!

    The current issue of (299) WV has some reviews.

    Panasonic DMR-EH80V - £570 but has HDD too. Good: six way dubbing; parallel recording; multiformat support including DVD-RW, DVD-RAM; HDD and VHS; decent AV quality. Bad: lacks Freeview and EPG; no MPEG4 or DVD-RW VR recording; no editing while recording. Verdict: sophisticated but convenient, this versatile combi handles just about every recording format. Sadly it's quite hard to use as a result. Three stars.

    Sanyo DVR-V100E - £200. Good: DVD playback; easy dubbing. Bad: DVD recording; no RGB input. Verdict: a solid option for VHS to DVD dubbing but flawed as a DVD recorder. Three stars.

    Funai DRV-B2737 - £200. Good: Decent record quality; good playback. Bad: No RGB input; inflexible dubbing; limited editing. Verdict: a contender if you're interested in shifting a VHS library to DVD. Four stars.

    Also consider: Bush DVHR02: more flexible recording of VHS to DVD at a comparable price. Still no RGB input. Panasonic DMR-ES30VEB: £100 more but yo u get RGB Scart input and progressive scan output plus superior recording quality.

    Thanks Skyline. I was hoping you'd recommend the panny dmr30. Richer Sounds have this for £269 MR which seems quite a good deal. But first I need to ditch my Toshiba RDXS34 which is surplus to requirements now.
