Help my Mum please re Sony DVD Recorder


Established Member

My old mum has just got her first lcdtv (sony) and would like me to get her a sony dvd recorder to replace her vhs.

I was looking at sony rdr-hxd995 as brother in law has got one and impressed but my mum wont need all the fancier features.

Is there a cheaper model with:

less hard drive
excellent picture
easy to record from guide
feature where if programme over runs it will continue recording

Thats it, doesnt need anything else



I second Andy's points.

PVR 's are generally much easier to use than DVDR's, which should only be considered if one wishes to permanently archive.

Additionally, I think any of that Sony range including the '995 will be extremely difficult to get now.
