DVD recorder with VGA out

Are there any DVD recorders on the market with VGA out? I'd like to plug one directly into my PWD6 and also use it as a TV tuner.

Thanks,

James

I don't think there are, but if you get one with component out, you should be able to connect it to the VGA input of your PWD6 without a converter.

Thanks Dave - component would work well. Would it make sense to use something like a Panasonic DMRES10 as a TV tuner as well? Never used a DVD recorder so not fully familiar with how these work. Are there any DVD recorders that support tuning into freeview channels?

James,

This is exactly what I am doing at the moment. I have just bought a Sony HXD710, which I am using as a Freeview TV tuner for my PWD6.

The Panasonic you mention will work fine, but it does not have a Freeview tuner.

If you are looking at a DVD recorder, I would highly recommend one with an HDD. IF you are mainly time-shifting TV programmes, you are likely to find you will use the HDD a great deal more than the DVD. It is still good to have the DVD for archiving stuff though!

Dave,

Thanks again, the HXD710 looks ideal but is a little bit pricy for my current means. I think I'll wait until it comes down in price. However I'm very please to know that there is technology out there that will do this job.

I wouldn't be surprised to see these come down fairly significantly after Christmas.
