    Moring guys and gals...

    I have about £100 to spend on a DVD Recorder, but I have no idea whats good or bad! I currently have Sky+ and need something to copy my saved films/programs too..

    My stand alone DVD packed in last night, so I thought I might as well upgrade too a recorder.

    One thing, it must have digital co-axial and optical outputs for 5.1 DTS Surround Sound.

    Other than that, I look forward to your suggestions,

    Cheers, and a Merry Christmas..

    Frodo..

    Do you need on-board Freeview? Panasonic have a couple of DVD recorders that may suit, but you'll need to up your budget a little to grab them. However, you might want to wait until the Boxing Day/New Year sales start as you might be able to pick-up a bargain.

    I'm sure that there are other makes out there in your price range, but I think that it's "safe" to stick with the well-known brands, just in case you hit any problems.

    Excellent. We could type for ages and i'm not the quickest typer in the world but if you drop me a PM with your phone number i'll call you to discuss. Alternatively you could call me it's up to you but a quick chat is ten times easier and quicker than threads for me. I'm a night owl so if you prefer let me know and we can speak in more regular hours.
    Regards,
    John.

    You dont happen to be hooked up on an Xbox360 with Live do you? Could chat on that? I dont have a land line - sick of getting calls from abroad selling me stuff everynight!

    My mobile phone is under the Xmas tree... I dropped mine down the loo! Not long to go before Im mobile again!
