    Hello There,

    I am form Holland and I read the forum a lot before purchasing my new television half a year ago. Finally I decided to purchase a Loewe Vitros after reading lots of posts. Because I am really satisfied with this television and your post really did help me, I like you all to help me again with a decision.

    I have a JVC homeciname and now I want to purchase a DVD / HDD recorder, because I have allready a DVD recorder in my PC, my mainly goal is the HDD reorder.

    In holland the Pioneer 5100 is really favorite but now there are the JVC DR-MH30S, the new Pioneer's, the Panasonic, Samsung and the new Sony later this year.

    What do you think what is a good brand and where shall I look for, I want a recorder for over 100 Gbyte. I thought about the DR-MH30s because this one has 160Gb and it's available already. I read the Pioneer has a bad tuner in it and has a noisy harddisk drive.

    I haven't seen much reviews of the JVC so far. I hope you can help me again because I want to purchase a recorder before my holiday in July.

    Please advice?

    Thanks allready (again),

    René

    The Pioneer may well have a lousy tuner,but recordings from its Scart and s-video inputs are superb.The HDD is not noisy at all,but its only 80Gb.I'm not sure abou the other models,but Pioneer's disc backup feature allows a complete digital copy of any -R/-RW disc in just over 25 minutes.

    Hello Phelings,

    Thanks for your reply. If the tuner is not that good i'd rather wait to another model because I really think I will record cable television the most.

    I hearded a rumour that Pioneer has announced two or three recorders later this year I hope they will have a good tuner.

    So you think the Pioneer is better than the JVC?

    I am not saying the tuner is bad,as I only use Scart/S-video input.Certainly the picture I receive via the tuner seems fine.If you are recording from cable,surely you are using a Scart lead and not using RF.Does the JVC have a HDD?

    Some analogue cable is delivered by rf only - like mine from ntl. It's not even that great a signal but only costs a couple of pounds a month.
