    Hi, thanks in advance for your advice

    I have a Tosh RDXS32 and think its the dogs dangly bits.

    My neighbour who is 70 is looking to buy a DVD recorder so he can transfer footage from his DV camcorder to it.

    I have recommended that if he can afford it to get a DVD-RW/HDD combined machine.

    Can anyone reccomend an easy to use, not overly complicated machine to buy that can record on R and RW disks, has a DV in port (for DV camcorder etc) and maybe even HDD too. Although I would recomend my Tosh to buyers, its probably not the easiest machines to use and does more things than he would ever use.

    Thanks in advance.

    Steve

    Pioneer or Sony would seem the obvious choice. Whilst Pioneer models aren't as easy to use as, say, Panasonic they are still fairly basic provided you don't go looking for complex settings :) Sony models are slightly more user friendly but you sacrifice 'editing' performance (esp. due to the lack of HDD playlists) which matters alot more if you are archiving from a camcorder.
