    I do not need two recorders, but I am looking at the possibilty of getting maximum flexibilty for recording and playback. I will be getting a Pioneer 435XDE in a few weeks that will be connected to Sky+ (so most recording will be done on the Sky box). In another room I have a Sony Digital 32" CRT (built in Freeview) connected to a Sky (no plus) box. I was thinking to get a good DVD player with HDMI to go with the plasma and a good HD recorder to go with the Sony. If I record a DVD on the machine with the Sony will the HDMI connectio to the Pio give any benefit on playback? Confused? - Yes I am ;-)
    Any suggestions most welcome.
    TIA :rolleyes:

    Possibly as you'd be saving on the digital to analogue to digital conversion. But it depends on the screen, player and the recording. I too am looking for a decent HDMI player at present: the Denon 3910 is top of the short-list with the Arcam DV79 close behind. The Pioneer 868 is also a possibility but it's component abilities are poor.
