    Hello,

    I use a Tivo and a computer to edit out adverts. I've got rid of my computer, but I was wondering how to get rid of adverts. I know i could just get a normal dvd-recorder and pause the recorder whilst adverts are on but that seems a pain. So if I get one with a HDD can you actually edit the program on the HDD to delete sections ie the adverts so when I record it. I have it without adverts.

    Cheers

    Steph

    Yes, you can do that with any decent HDD/DVD recorder. Very quick and easy to do.

    Thanks :)

    I guess the panasonic with 400gig hd at £599 from Richer Sounds is worth a lot of consideration considering the size of the harddisk in it.

    Any ideas on any others that are worth considering. I really wanted to only pay £200 but can't find one with a hdd for that.

    I recommend this link to help you decide (as well as browsing this forum).
    http://www.btinternet.com/~james_lancaster/whichdvd.HTML

    You can get a Panasonic EH50 (80 GB HDD), or a Toshiba XS34 (160 GB HDD) for under £300. Unless you really time shift a lot, or are away for prolonged periods, a 160 GB (or even 80 GB) may be enough. 80 GB gives you ~36 hours at SP mode; ~18 hours at highest quality mode.
