    I am currently looking for a HDD DVD Recorder (Multi-Region) with progressive scan and a 5.1 system package. Does any know of reviews/offers around at present.

    Also what cable do I need to get progressive scan from LCD - DVD.

    Cheers

    Damo :)

    Do you mean an all-in-one? If so I would always recommend getting seperates even if on a budget. However, to answer the question, the model to look at is the Panasonic SCHT37 which includes the well regarded Panasonic E85 which has full progressive scan. Model listed isn't multi-region but contact them about that as they can supply the E85 multi-region (or look for another supplier). Link is only for information anyway. No other setup currently offers 5.1 and Progressive Scan unless you go for seperates...

    He said he wanted one with a HDD - or does the JVC system allow you to select the relevant DVD recorder for the package?

    Cheers for that.

    What suggestions do you have for seperates? Would need NTSC progressive scan as well to play R1 discs I think.

    I am not the best person to advise on that - have a look in the Speakers forum and the Receivers forum to get the best and latest advice.

    Panasonic, Toshiba and JVC DVD recorders all do NTSC and PAL progressive scan even though sites generallt describe them as 'PAL Progressive'.
