    I just got a Pye PRV645. It's made by philips, is easy to use although the remote is a little on the small side, especially when skipping through frames and marking for hiding. On the whole it is a decent basic machine. One thing it does have is a 2x mode for recording 2.5 hrs, useful when films are shown on Channel 5. It doesnt have an HQ (1 hr) mode but I have a Sony which has. If I could get the remote for the Sony to work for the Pye (impossible I know) that would give me the best of both worlds. I am going to invest in a learning remote for all my equipment (I have 12 at the mo) if they do one which does as many as that.
    Pye was £99.95 from ASDA and also there was a Sony machine in Argos which was £149.95, I think it was the 310 or something like that.
    There is a Lite-On with a hard drive for £229 approx and it looks a good machine too, I like Lite-On, good products. :thumbsup:

    Hiya Rookies.

    Ive got a Lite-On LVW-5045 DVD Recorder with HDD so far it's been really good.. but it does seem to be pot luck if you get a good one or a lemon! if you do get a good one there are lots you can do with it ;)

    Mine cost £223 inc delivery and comes with a two year warranty.

    Hello Gordon.

    I must listen to you as you got me a good LCD tv

    Hmm I dont really like the look of the lite-on would spoil the set up with the LCD I think. Then again it the inside we should look at really.

    Hmm Wonder what other Recorders there is
