Hullo all, I am hoping you will be able to help me take my first steps into the world of Hard disk DVD recorders. I have been looking at the DMRE95, which Richer Sounds are currently selling for a reasonable price (a price I can't afford to go much higher than, i might add - £400), but am unsure of some of the features. Can anyone help me answer the following: 1. Can I watch a DVD while recording a programme to the hard disk in the background? 2. The spec says that this model has a PCMCIA expansion slot. Does anyone know if this will accept an ethernet card, so that I can link the recorder to my home network, or is it just for memory cards? 3. Can I watch a programme on the hard disk while recording something else to the hard disk? Hope you can help. Thanks in advance! FB.
