I have a VCR but it sometimes struggles with my new TV - I bought a 30 Philips LCD TV with progressive scan - so now I'm thinking about updating my kit. I currently a freeview box and I've been looking at the Toshiba RD-XS34 and the Panasonic DMR-EH50 because they're fairly similar in price. I was tempted by the Toshiba's 160 GB HDD but I read on the forum that the Panasonic is happier with longer recordings so I'm still debating. My question is, do I buy one of these? Or is it worth waiting for the DVDR/HDD s with Freview tuner in that are coming out soon-ish. I think my limit for new hardware is going to be about £500.
