Right; plus all of the currently manufactured HDD recorders that can record from an external source have a DVD recorder whereas none of the PVRs that only record from their internal tuners have one.mildred said:The main difference is that PVR's will only record from it's internal fitted tuner.
An HDD recorder will make recordings from external sources via a SCART/DVi etc. in addition to the built in tuner.
In answering the origional question I disagree. wolfie1 asked what the difference between a HDD recorder & a PVR was. IMO it has nothing to do with 2 tuners, internal or external analogue or digital tuners etc. A HDD recorder is just a dumb recorder, but a PVR has advanced recording features via the EPG.LV426 said:So - in terms of what the manufacturers are doing, the other replies to this thread are more useful.
