    I'm looking for DVD recorder with HDD, but I can't find one that suits my needs. I would like it to be able to read DIVX / XVID, to record to HDD and DVD, nice edit capabilities and good quality overall.

    Am I asking too much?

    Yes. For home cinema users you are still much better off with a seperate DVD player and a dedicated DVD recorder.

    This is sound advice - some of the more recent DVD players are extremely flexible.

    Apart from the ability to play back XviD/DivX, choose carefully and look for one which plays back bare MPEG2 files - it means you can record a title on the DVDR, rip to a single MPEG2 and burn it. No more tedious DVD authoring. Some players like the Yamada 6x00 series even let you use FFWD/FREV on these files, with the right firmware.
