    Just wondered, whether any of the current crop of DVD recorders with a built in Hard drive, or new machines on the way from panasonic/JVC have component outputs, rather than just RGB or S-video.

    thanks

    Yes - most of them ;) The new Panasonic models do (all of them bar the E75), the JVC models do, the Pioneer 5100 does, the new Sharp model does and the Sony RX8/10 does. I think the E100 does as well although you'd better check that.

    or 2 standard sky boxes

    Minor point:- The Pioneer DVR5100 does not have component out.
    Composite, S-video and RGB only.

    Doesn't it? I'm probably getting confused with the 510. :blush:

    Quite an important question for me: is the Progressive Scan chipset any good in these models. I really need a good PS player, but would consider going down the recorder route as well.

    Would the component out of the E85 be able to feed a TV picture to a projector directly or through an Denon AV3803 Amp? I am thinking of getting one partly for this reason, however I have also read that people do not rate the Tuner very highly.

    Anyone know if you can feed an RGB signal from a freeview box into one of these new DVDR + HDD boxes and have the signal come out in progressive component?

    Also, are there any DVDR +HDD boxes out there or coming out with builtin freeview tuner?

    Steve.
